Former Staffer Files Criminal Complaint Against Joe Biden for Alleged Sexual Assault
Tara Reade, a former staffer for Joe Biden while he was serving in the Senate, filed a criminal complaint in Washington D.C. against her former boss on Saturday alleging he sexually assaulted her in 1993.
Reade attests that Biden “assaulted her in a Senate corridor, shoving his hand under her skirt and penetrating her with his fingers.” Business Insider has reported that the “statute of limitations for the alleged assault has passed,” but this troublesome news is not expected to help Biden’s presidential chances.
Reade spoke her truth to writer Katie Halper when she appeared on her podcast last month. Reade claims that she has been trying to get justice for years but her story has mostly fallen on deaf ears due to Biden being protected.

“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing,” Reade said to Halper. “There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall. His hands were on me and underneath my clothes. And then, he went, he went down my skirt and then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers…and um…He was kissing me at the same time and he was saying something to me.”
“He got finished doing what he was doing and I, how I was pulled back and he said, ‘Come on man, I heard you liked me.’ And that phrase stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might have said,” she continued. “And I can’t remember exactly if he said ‘I thought’ or if ‘I heard.’ It’s like he implied that I had done this.”
Biden’s campaign is saying that all women should not be believed when they tell their sexual assault stories, a heresy to the far left in the age of #metoo. They are insinuating that Reade is a liar.
“Women have a right to tell their story, and reporters have an obligation to rigorously vet those claims. We encourage them to do so, because these accusations are false,” Biden’s deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield told Fox News in a statement.
Although right-wing outlets are covering this news, the left-wing mainstream media is largely silent about these accusations. Commentators are pointing out the extreme hypocrisy.
I searched CNN for more info on Tara Reade accusing Joe Biden of sexual assault but I can’t seem to find anything. Weird that almost a month later and with a criminal complaint filed you guys have nothing but you had 24/7 Kavanaugh coverage. pic.twitter.com/NazvYcNVlI

Although the fake news refuses to give this story proper coverage, these accusations will not go away. All of the times Biden has preyed upon women, in particular young girls, throughout the years gives the allegations additional credibility.
