More and more details of Tara Reade’s sexual assault accusation against former Vice President Joe Biden have been corroborated.

Reade, a former staffer for Biden while he was in the Senate, has accused the former vice president of pushing her up against a wall, kissing her, touching her and penetrating her with his fingers without her consent in 1993.

Biden has yet to personally address Reade’s accusation, though a campaign spokesperson has denied that the alleged incident ever happened. Biden’s campaign hasn’t returned repeated requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Five people have corroborated details of Reade’s account against Biden, who is the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, a Daily Caller News Foundation review of public statements found.

Reade’s mother

Reade’s late mother appeared to corroborate details of her account while calling into “Larry King Live” in 1993, shortly after Reade left Biden’s office. A transcript and video of the segment was uncovered after Reade mentioned in an interview that her mother had called into “Larry King Live” about her alleged assault.

“I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him,” a woman from Reade’s hometown told King.

Reade confirmed to the DCNF that it was her mother’s voice on the call.

Reade’s brother

Reade’s brother, Collin Moulton, confirmed to The Intercept that she told him about the alleged assault around the time that it happened — long before she went public with her claims against Biden. Her brother also confirmed that Reade’s mother had encouraged her to contact the police about the alleged assault.

The former neighbor

Reade’s former neighbor, Lynda LaCasse, corroborated key details of Reade’s account in an interview published Monday.

“This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it,” LaCasse, a Biden supporter, told Business Insider.

“I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she idolized him,” she added. “And he kind of put her up against a wall. And he put his hand up her skirt and he put his fingers inside her. She felt like she was assaulted, and she really didn’t feel there was anything she could do.”

LaCasse’s account of what Reade told her decades ago tracks with how Reade is describing the event now. Reade has accused Biden of pushing her against a up wall in a Senate corridor, kissing her, touching her and penetrating her with his fingers without her consent.

Reade’s close friend

One of Reade’s close friends, who remained anonymous, also confirmed to The Intercept that Reade had described the alleged assault around the time it was said to have happened. Ryan Grim, the reporter at The Intercept who spoke to Reade’s close friend, confirmed to the DCNF on Tuesday that the friend in the story is not LaCasse.

The former coworker

Reade’s former coworker, Lorraine Sanchez, also corroborated details of her account against Biden. Sanchez and Reade worked together at a California state senator’s office in the mid-1990s.

Reade told Sanchez that “she had been sexually harassed by her former boss while she was in D.C., and as a result of her voicing her concerns to her supervisors, she was let go, fired,” Sanchez told Business Insider. She recalled Biden was Reade’s former boss, but didn’t remember if Reade named Biden when describing the incident.

  1. NOW THERE ARE EIGHT CORROBORATORS, ALL DEMOCRATS

    The media are ignoring the “situation” hoping it will eventually go away

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/05/01/nolte-tara-reade-is-joe-bidens-eighth-accuser/

    Tara Reade is Joe Biden’s eighth accuser, not his first, not his only. The fake news media want you to believe Reade is Biden’s only accuser, and that’s because there is no lie the media will not tell to protect the presumptive Democrat nominee.

    But seven other women — seven! — none of them Republicans, have accused Joe Biden of everything from sexual assault to unwanted kissing to inappropriate touching.

    Tara Reade
    Reade claims Biden sexually assaulted in a hallway while she was working for him in 1993. According to Reade, Biden pinned her against a wall, shoved his hands up her skirt, and his fingers into her vagina. Reade has no fewer than five contemporaneous witnesses who say Reade told them about the assault at or near the time it happened. There is also video of Reade’s anguished mother calling into a 1993 edition of CNN’s Larry King Live desperately seeking advice for her daughter’s problems with a “prominent senator. ”

    Biden denies the allegation but is refusing to open his archives at the University of Delaware where a copy of Reade’s sexual harassment complaint might be filed. Tara Reade is a lifelong Democrat.

    Lucy Flores
    Last year, Flores, a former Nevada Assemblywoman, accused Biden touching and kissing her. Flores is a Democrat.

    Amy Lappos
    Lappos claims Biden pawed at her during a 2009 fundraiser. Lappos is a Democrat.

    Vail Kohnert-Yount.
    Kohnert-Younh was interning at the Obama White House at the time.

    Caitlyn Caruso
    This might seem like a small thing, but who puts their hand on the thigh of a woman who is not his significant other?

    D.J. Hill
    Hill says Biden got so handsy with her, her husband was forced to intervene:
    Writer D. J. Hill told the Times that Biden moved his hand from Caruso’s shoulder down her lower back, which made her uncomfortable at an event, causing her husband to intervene.
    Hill told her story to the far-left New York Times last year.

    Sofie Karasek.
    Karasek is a sexual assault survivor.

    Ally Coll
    All Coll says she was made uncomfortable by Biden’s unwanted touching at a 2008 reception. He squeezed her shoulders and complimented her smile for an amount of time that made her uncomfortable.

    Tara Reade Is Joe Biden’s EIGHTH Accuser

    Tara Reade is Joe Biden’s eighth accuser, not his first, not his only. The fake news media want you to believe Reade is Biden’s only accuser, and that’s because there is no lie the media will not tell to protect the presumptive Democrat nominee.

    But seven other women — seven! — ALL DEMOCRATS, have accused Joe Biden of everything from sexual assault to unwanted kissing to inappropriate touching.

  3. Sleapy/stuttering/demented, consummate-insider, smiley Joe turns out to be a vulture-like predator of women in dark corners in DC and elsewhere?

    He, just like Bernie, Clinton, Obama, and the rest, made $millions being our representatives using under-the-table, insider dealing for decades.

    How in hell could a dirt-poor, community organizer buy a $15 million mansion on the shore of Martha’s Vineyard, plus multi-$million houses in DC?

    It all stinks to high heaven.

    And they voted for trade agreements (Kennedy Round, NAFTA, China into the WTO, etc.) that screwed the US worker for decades.

  4. According to Tara Reade’s accusation, I guess Sleepy Joe wasn’t all that sleepy,
    but come on just because there are ” Five ” people who have corroborated her
    story……………….Not Joe !!

    Oh wait, that’s rights he a Liberal Democrat…….. Yeah, No Doubt hair sniffing Joe !!!
