The declaration by Sen. Harris was reported in an April 3, 2019 article in The Hill, titled “Harris: ‘I Believe’ Biden accusers”:

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that she believes women who say they felt uncomfortable after receiving unwanted touching from former Vice President Joe Biden.

"I believe them and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it," Harris said at a presidential campaign event in Nevada.

Several women have accused Biden of touching them inappropriately, including a Democrat former Nevada state lawmaker and a Connecticut fundraiser attendee, The Hill reports.

On Tuesday, Biden tweeted that it is his “great honor” to announce that Sen. Harris is his chosen running mate:
