Former Vice President and Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden is officially under investigation by Washington D.C. law enforcement for his alleged sexual assault against Tara Reade, a former staffer of his campaign in 1993. Tara Reade went forward with a criminal complaint to the police earlier this month, after revealing the disturbing details of the alleged assault on a podcast with journalist Katie Harper.
Law enforcement confirmed that there is an active investigation into the alleged sexual assault by Joe Biden in a statement to reporters on Tuesday.
Check out what the Washington Examiner reported below:
The Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia is actively investigating the complaint against Joe Biden brought by Tara Reade, the woman who accused Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993, despite her allegation being impossible to prosecute since it is past the statute of limitations.
“This is an active, ongoing investigation, and there are no further details to provide at this time,” a Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson told the Washington Examiner Tuesday regarding Reade’s case. “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.”
The investigation remaining open, despite the alleged incident occurring past the statute of limitations, struck multiple experts as highly unusual.
Tara Reade alleges that, while she was working on Joe Biden’s campaign as a staff assistant, she was asked by her supervisor to bring a bag up to the Delaware Senator, and Joe Biden proceeded to push her against the wall and sexually assault her.
“She said he was down towards the Capitol, and he’ll meet you,” Reade said. “I went down, and I was heading down towards there. He was at first talking to someone…and then they went away. We were in, like, the side, like the side area, and he just said, ‘Hey, come here Tara.’”
“I handed him the thing. He greeted me. He remembered my name. And then we were alone,” she continued. “It was the strangest thing. There was no like exchange really. He just had me up against the wall. I was wearing, like, a skirt, a business skirt.”
“It happened all at once…his hands were on me and underneath my clothes. Yeah, and he went down my skirt but then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers, and he was kissing me at the same time, and he was saying something to me. He said several things. I can’t remember everything he said,” she added.
Contrary to what happened with Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the media practically shut down the story almost immediately after the allegation surfaced, and some news outlets have failed to even report the allegation at all.
The silence is even more deafening considering the fact that, just a short time ago, Joe Biden said “for a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real,” while discussing the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh just a two years ago.
