Ilhan Omar Says That She Believes Tara Reade’s Joe Biden Allegations

Far-left congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) recently announced that she ultimately does believe the claims of sexual assault against Joe Biden by former Senate staffer Tara Reade, according to Fox News.

Omar made the revelation in an interview with the British paper Sunday Times, saying “I do believe Reade. Justice can be delayed but should never be denied.” She also admitted that if it were up to her, Biden would not be the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee.

Omar’s stance reveals a growing uncertainty with Biden among the party’s far-left base and exposing the Democrats’ double-standard with the MeToo movement and the “believe all women” mantra. Omar’s comments echo similar concerns by fellow freshman socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), considered a leading figure in the American socialist movement, who said that “it’s legitimate to talk about” Reade’s claims against Biden.

Ever since Reade first came out and alleged that Biden sexually assaulted her in his Senate office in 1993 while she was working for him, her claim has been backed up by multiple pieces of contemporary evidence. Several associates, including her brother and a former neighbor, have said that Reade told her about the assault shortly after it happened. Unveiled court documents showed further proof of the incident when her ex-husband mentioned the assault, and specifically named Biden, in divorce filings in 1996.
