House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continued to say she is “satisfied” with how Joe Biden has responded to an allegation of sexual assault from a former Senate staffer.
“Well, I have great sympathy for any women who brings forth an allegation; I’m a big strong supporter of the #MeToo movement. I think it's made a great contribution to our country and I do support Joe Biden,” Pelosi told CNN’s "New Day" on Thursday. “I’m satisfied with how he has responded, I know him, I was proud to endorse him Monday, very proud to endorse him, so I'm satisfied with that.”
Pelosi’s message was the same two weeks ago. She told MSNBC on April 17, she was satisfied with Biden’s answer.
"Yes, I am. I am very much involved in this issue. I always want to give the opportunity that women deserve to be heard. I am satisfied with his answer, yes."
Biden is yet to personally address the claim, but his campaign has denied it. Kate Bedingfield, Biden's deputy campaign manager, previously released a statement saying the claim is "untrue" and "absolutely did not happen."
Pelosi wasn’t forthcoming in stating whether Biden should address the allegations himself.
“It’s a matter he has to deal with, but I am impressed with the people who worked for him at the time saying that they absolutely never heard one iota of information about this, nobody ever brought forth a claim or had anybody else tell them about such a claim,” she told CNN.
Tara Reade, a former Biden aide, accused her former boss of sexually assaulting her in 1993. Earlier this month, she filed a criminal complaint against Biden with police in Washington, D.C., according to Fox News.
