My RedState colleague Nick Arama wrote yesterday about the first details that were revealed from Megyn Kelly’s soon-to-be-released full interview with Tara Reade, the former Joe Biden Senate staffer who in March accused him of a 1993 sexual assault.
While Kelly hasn’t released the complete video yet (it reportedly will be forthcoming later today on her Twitter feed), the New York Post received an advance copy of the full interview and reported some of the disturbing details from it.
According to the Post, Reade shared with Kelly some graphic details from Biden’s alleged attack, including what Reade claims he said during the alleged encounter (trigger warnings apply here):
“So, he had one hand underneath my shirt, and the other had, I had a skirt on, and he went down my skirt and then went up and I remember I was up almost on my tippy toes.
“When he went inside the skirt, he was talking to me at the same time, and he was leaning into me and I pulled this way away from his head.”
As he kissed her neck, he asked in a whisper if she wanted to go somewhere else, she said.
Although she can’t remember everything he said, she still remembers him saying: “I want to f–k you.”
“He said it low and I was pushing away and I remember my knee hurting because he had opened my legs with his knee and our kneecaps clashed so I felt like a sharp pain.
“His fingers were inside of my private area – my vagina – and there was no small talk, there was no precept, it was just sudden and it was happening like that.
“He was saying those things to me and I was pulling away.”
When she refused his advances and was “obviously just tensed up and frozen” Reade said Biden pulled back.
More information is slowly beginning to come out that seems to corroborate at least some of Reade’s story, including the Larry King interview from 1993 where her late mother talked vaguely about an incident that happened between a “powerful Senator” and her daughter in 1993, and via family, friends, and former neighbors, and in court documents from a restraining order Reade filed against her ex-husband in 1996 where she mentioned alleged sexual harassment.
Reade also told Kelly during the interview that she shouldn’t have to take a lie detector test to show she was telling the truth, but that she would if Biden agreed to take one, too.
