Biden on Friday for the first time publicly denied the allegations made in March by Tara Reade, a former Senate aide who alleges that Biden assaulted her in 1993. His campaign had previously denied the allegations. 


The leaders featured in Trump’s attack ad have defended Biden against the allegations, but were critical of Kavanaugh. 

“There will be a great temptation among Biden’s supporters to take his lackluster interview performance and declare ‘case closed’ and move on,” Erin Perrine, a Trump campaign spokeswoman, said in a statement. “We do not know what, if anything, was done to Tara Reade, but there cannot be one set of rules for Joe Biden and another set for everyone else.”

The Trump campaign and conservative party leaders have accused Democrats and the media of a double standard when it comes to Kavanaugh and Biden. 

Trump has also faced several sexual assault accusations, including columnist E. Jean Carroll, who accused him of raping her in a Manhattan department store in the 1990s.
