Even if Tara Reade's decades-old complaint about former Vice President Joe Biden did surface, it wouldn't mention an assault, she says.

Reade has accused Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, of sexually assaulting her when she worked for his Senate office in 1993. But while Reade did file a complaint about Biden at the time with the Senate personnel office, she told ABC News that it wouldn't mention the alleged assault, only that Biden "made her feel uncomfortable."
