During the 2020 presidential election, former Biden staffer Tara Reade came out and stated that she was sexually assaulted by then-candidate Biden when she worked for him during his time as a senator.
Biden, of course, denied the allegations. Allies of the current president were also quick to assert that Reade’s claims were motivated by politics, rather than real events.
Though with the possibility of Reade now preparing to testify before Congress, she’s put out a very public statement that is raising some eyebrows, as Fox News reports.
A Sobering Message
Tara Reade tweeted out that if anything happens to her after her potential testimony before Congress, then all Joe Biden is the one responsible. Reade also made it clear that she stands by her allegations of Biden sexually assaulting her when he was a senator.
I want to make something clear. If something happens to me, all roads lead to Joe Biden.
Joe Biden and DNC political machine threats, bullying and intimidation over the last three years will not work.
I am not suicidal. I should not be under investigation nor am I a foreign…

Later, Reade revealed that GOP Reps. Marjorie Greene and Matt Gaetz invited her to provide testimony before Congress. This comes as House GOP members are working to get to the bottom of corruption surrounding not just Biden, but also various members of his family.
Reade made it clear that she wants Joe Biden and other members of the Democratic establishment to leave her alone and cease their efforts to silence her.
More From Tara Reade
It didn’t take long for Reade’s warning to go viral, with much of the news media covering it. In response, Reade said there’s nothing at all that’s “cryptic” about her message.
Well, the message is not so cryptic, rather direct information I would say. I will not be silenced or intimidated by aspects of my own government that act as a vassal for Joe Biden.
Thank you to those who care & support me ❤️

She likewise made it clear that she’s not going to allow herself to be intimidated by anyone in the government, politics, or in other areas.
So far, it remains to be seen if Reade does end up testifying before Congress. If she does, though, the White House can count on being asked about this during the daily press briefings.
