Summary: ABC has tried to corroborate Tara Reade story, which was at first stated as inappropriate touching, hugs, etc then included event where she alleges she was assaulted. MB says no paper trail, re/Senate personnel office. At the time of complaint, TR stated she felt uncomfortable, but didn’t mention assault. TR has no record of her complaint*, and they’ve (ABC) been unable to locate any document independently. TR was part of a group of women [last year] who talked about Biden being handsy but TR didn’t mention assault at the time. Her story has changed, her brother’s story has changed, a neighbor came forward but only knew about inappropriate touching. Biden campaign already denied the allegation as false.

*When a formal complaint is made to the Senate personnel office, a document is signed as being accurate and complete by both the complainant and the office, with the complainant receiving their own copy. ABC is saying they can't prove existence of said complaint.
