Ilhan Omar: ‘I do believe’ Tara Reade’s claims against Joe Biden
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said she believes Tara Reade’s sexual-assault claim against Joe Biden, and that if it were up to her, Biden wouldn’t be the Democrats’ nominee for president.
“I do believe Reade,” Omar told the British Sunday Times. “Justice can be delayed but should never be denied.”
The freshman progressive “Squad” member had endorsed and campaigned for Biden’s rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Tara Reade, a former Biden staffer, accused the former vice president of cornering her in a Senate office and sexually assaulting her in 1993.
