Tara Reade, a former staffer for then-Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, has accused the current president of having sexually assaulted her in the halls of the Capitol in the mid-1990s, a claim that President Biden has vehemently denied.
In what was described as a "cryptic" message posted by Reade on Sunday, she insisted that she wasn't suicidal, decried the "bullying and intimidation" she has received from Democrats, and asserted that she was ready to "testify under oath in Congress" about her allegations against Biden, Fox News reported.
Reade also specifically thanked Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) for offering her an invitation to testify and for "caring about the truth!"
"I want to make something clear. If something happens to me, all roads lead to Joe Biden," Reade tweeted Sunday afternoon. "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 agent," she continued. "I am a private citizen. I was a former staffer of Joe Biden’s that has chosen to step forward to tell the truth."
"The tactics using intimidation and bullying to silence me and suppress me using DOJ and FBI and social media will not work. Leave me alone," Reade wrote. "I will testify under oath in Congress if asked to do so and tell what happened and what I know."
"The Biden corruption must end. Period. Thank you @RepMTG and @mattgaetz for inviting me to testify and caring about the truth!" she added.
Newsweek reported in March that Republican Reps. Gaetz and Greene had extended an invitation for Reade to come in and sit for a transcribed interview with respect to her allegations of sexual assault several decades ago against then-Sen. Biden.
That invitation stemmed from a tweet from Reade, in which she had tagged both members of Congress, and demanded to know when her allegations against Biden would be fully investigated and, in a clear allusion to one of the investigations against former President Donald Trump, added, "I am not a former porn star nor did I receive 'hush money.'"
Greene responded that it was "time to take a stand against the two-tiered injustice system," and proceeded to invite Reade to come to Washington D.C. and "speak with us" about what had allegedly happened to her.
On his own podcast at that time, Gaetz further revealed that House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) had informed both him and Greene that they were "fully authorized to bring in Tara Reade to take her transcribed interview, to get the facts and to understand what really happened with Joe Biden."
"Congresswoman Greene saw this tweet and she felt as though we ought to get the answers," he added. "Now, no person's allegation should be taken at face value -- there has to be review, there has to be corroboration."
Newsweek reported that Reade was one of several women who came forward in 2020 with allegations of sexual misconduct against then-candidate Biden -- all of whom were then denounced and smeared and even threatened by the mainstream media and Democrats.
Reade in particular, who asserts that then-Sen. Biden pinned her against a wall and fondled and penetrated her against her will in 1993, has been particularly maligned by the media and seen her claim picked apart, but continues to insist that she has told the truth and is willing to do so under oath and the legal threat of perjury.
