Joe Biden's presidential campaign reportedly accessed sealed records of his Senate career sometime in the last year, possibly shortly before a bombshell sexual assault allegation against the former vice president went public.

A spokeswoman for the University of Delaware, where the records are housed, confirmed to Business Insider that Biden operatives examined the collection's various documents "on at least one occasion" before "mid-March" of this year, when the library closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Reade's allegations went public in late March.

? Biden on Friday said he would not release those records prior to his theoretical win of the White House in November, claiming that material in them could be "taken out of context" during the campaign season.
