Democratic presidential candidate Biden says sexual assault 'never happened'

May 1 (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Friday denied that he sexually assaulted a former Senate aide in 1993, his first public remarks on the subject after he faced intense pressure to address the allegation.

“I want to address allegations by a former staffer that I engaged in misconduct 27 years ago,” Biden said in an emailed statement. “They aren’t true. This never happened.” (Reporting by Trevor Hunnicutt in New York Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
