Former Biden staffer Tara Reade seeks Russian citizenship
Tara Reade, a former staffer of US President Joe Biden, has moved to Russia and is seeking citizenship there, citing concerns for her safety in the US. Reade had accused Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993, which he denied. The White House has denied that the US government posed any threat to Reade's life. Reade said she felt safe in Russia and wanted to stay there. She made the announcement during an interview with the state-owned Sputnik News website.
