Pelosi defends Biden amid Tara Reade allegations

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remained supportive of Former Vice President Joe Biden when she was asked at her weekly press conference about allegations against the presumptive U.S. Democratic presidential nominee.

“The happiest day for me this week was to support Joe Biden for president of the United States.

He is a person of great integrity, of great concern for the American people...I believe that he will be a great president of the United States.

He is a personification of hope and optimism and authenticity for our country, a person of great values," Pelosi said.

Presumptive U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is facing growing calls from within and outside his party to respond to a former aide's allegation that he sexually assaulted her nearly 30 years ago, an assertion Biden's campaign has denied.

Tara Reade, who worked as a staff assistant in Biden's U.S. Senate office from December 1992 to August 1993, has accused Biden of pinning her against a wall in 1993 and reaching under her shirt and her skirt.
