Joe Biden once again addressed the sexual assault allegations made by a former staffer - this time telling Americans not to vote for him if they believe the allegations.
During an MSNBC interview Thursday, the former vice president told Lawrence O'Donnell: “If they believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn't vote for me. I wouldn't vote for me if I believed Tara Reade".
"The fact is that, look at Tara Reade's story. It changes considerably," Biden added. "But I don't want to question her motive. I don't want to question anything other than to say, the truth matters."
Biden has denied the claims, insisting the alleged 1993 incident "never, never happened," according to a previous interview. However, Biden says that Reade's claims "should be taken seriously" and "thoroughly vetted".
“It should be vetted. She should be thoroughly looked at and whether or not these happened, look at the story, follow the story line and determine whether there’s any truth to it,” he said.
