Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden isn’t out of the woods yet.

The Secretary of Senate on Monday refused to release documents which are said to contain more details about Tara Reade’s complaint against the former vice president.

The office of Julie Adams, the Secretary of Senate, has stated now that she doesn’t have the necessary powers to release the said documents.

This comes a few days after Biden had himself written to the Secretary requesting the release of the documents.

Tara Reade, a former aide to Joe Biden, came forward with allegations of sexual assault last year in April. She stepped back from the spotlight at the time, citing virulent online abuse. After almost a year, she came back this year in March with her accusations. Mainstream outlets have been slow to report on these allegations against the former vice president.

The Story Drags On

The Secretary of the Senate’s refusal to release the documents will only drag this story further forward. Prominent Me Too activists such as Alyssa Milano who protested the appointment of Brett Kavanagh to the Supreme Court, have come out and supported Biden.

This, in turn, has caused disillusionment amongst many regarding the Me Too movement and cornered Democrats who criticized Kavanagh almost two years ago.

Biden would be aware of the impact a story like this could have in the general election. President Trump, who himself has been accused by several women of sexual assault, won’t hold back in attacking Biden on the issue.

The story, more or less, would demoralize a Democratic base that wants to get behind a candidate who is nothing like Trump.
