D.C. Police “Actively Investigating” 1993 Sexual Assault Allegation Against Joe Biden
Washington D.C Police have confirmed that they’re actively investigating Tara Reade’s accusation of sexual assault against then-Senator Joe Biden, which the former Senate staffer claims occurred in 1993.
“This is an active, ongoing investigation, and there are no further details to provide at this time,” A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Department told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday. “Cases that are handled by the Metropolitan Police Department’s Sexual Assault Unit go through a multi-review prior to being assigned a disposition. This case is progressing through the review process.”
Reade has recounted an event in which she was pinned against a wall and penetrated in Biden’s Senate office while working as a Senate staffer. She filed a police report over the matter on April 9th.
Biden’s campaign has released a statement denying Reade’s allegation, although remarkably Joe Biden himself hasn’t even so much as been asked them during his numerous media appearances since Reade came forward. Other Democrats such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have been asked more about the allegation against Biden than he has.
The incident is beyond the statue of limitations, so it’s doubtful that charges could be filed in any event. Reade has stated that she didn’t expect the D.C. police to do more than note the compliant, and that she was merely intending to document her allegation.
There’s not much the public has to analyze the veracity of Reade’s accusation at this point. But it’s almost certain that stringent #VoteBlue neoliberal Democrats will conveniently ignore the allegation, despite the left’s lengthy track record of weaponizing even more dubious allegations against conservatives such as Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump.
