As expected, the media has been predominantly silent on the accusations from Tara Reade, that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her when she worked for him in the 1990’s. What is surprising, or maybe not, is that members of the #metoo movement which was born out of the Kavanaugh hearings, have also been slow to support her.
Reade has now made her complaint official by filing a criminal complaint against the former Vice President and likely Democrat nominee for President.
A woman has filed a police report claiming that presidential candidate Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993, according to reports.
Tara Reade filed a criminal complaint with the Washington Metropolitan Police Department of accusing the 2020 Democratic nomination of pushing her against the wall in a Senate corridor and penetrating her with his fingers, according to Business Insider.
The alleged incident occurred while Reade was working as a Senate staffer for Biden nearly 30 years ago.
Reade first made the claims against Biden last month. In a tweet, Reade thanked those who helped her come forward with the allegations, as well as “luminaries” who have supported her such as Susan Sarandon, John Cusack, and Rose McGowan.
Reade also confirmed that the statute of limitations around the claims against Biden have passed.
I filed a police report for safety reasons only. All crim [sic] stats beyond limitations. Gratitude for all who have stood by me.
