Washington D.C Police have confirmed that they’re actively investigating Tara Reade’s accusation of sexual assault against then-Senator Joe Biden, which the former Senate staffer claims occurred in 1993.
“This is an active, ongoing investigation, and there are no further details to provide at this time,” A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Department told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday. “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.”
Reade has recounted an event in which she was pinned against a wall and penetrated in Biden’s Senate office while working as a Senate staffer. She filed a police report over the matter on April 9th.
Biden’s campaign has released a statement denying Reade’s allegation, although remarkably Joe Biden himself hasn’t even so much as been asked them during his numerous media appearances since Reade came forward. Other Democrats such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have been asked more about the allegation against Biden than he has.
