MOSCOW – Tara Reade stated President of the United States (US) Joe Biden has long harbored a bias against Russia, expressing it decades before the current tensions between Washington and Moscow.
Reade is a former Biden staffer who accused him of sexual harassment. His remarks appeared in an interview with RT.
Reade, who describes himself as a whistleblower and has written op-eds for RT in the past, recently moved to Moscow, citing security concerns. He also plans to apply for a Russian passport.
“I tried to raise my voice and warn people in 2018, 2019, 2020, that if Joe Biden becomes president, he will take us to war with Russia,” he told RT’s Maria Butina.
According to Reade, he came to this conclusion in the early 1990s, while serving on the staff of Biden, then a senator.
At that time, the US was formulating its policy towards a new Russia that had risen from the collapse of the Soviet Union.
“He was so biased towards (Russia), Joe Biden was. And at one meeting, I happened to be in and out of the meeting, I heard him say, ‘They’re never going to get a seat at the table,'” he recalled.
In 2020, at the height of the US presidential election, Reade accused Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993 while she was working for him as an aide in the Senate.
Biden, who was the Democratic presidential nominee at the time, vehemently denied the claims.
“I say it unequivocally: it never, never happened,” Biden said in the interview.
