Game Over! Former Staffer Files Sexual Assault Criminal Complaint Against Joe Biden, She Claims That He Pushed Her Against A Wall Before Taking If Further

A criminal complaint of sexual assault has been filed against former Vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The woman, Tara Reade filed a criminal complaint with the Washington Metropolitan Police Department, regarding an assault she alleges happened in 1993.

Reade, who used to work for Biden, said that the Democrat front runner pushed her against a wall in the Senate corridor when he was a senator.

As he had her against the wall, Reade alleged, the former vice president penetrated her with his fingers, Newsweek reported.

“Thank you to the brave journalists @ryangrim @kthalps @RichMcHugh and And luminaries that have stood by me @SusanSarandon @johncusack @rosemcgowan.

“I filed a police report for safety reasons only. All crim [sic] stats beyond limitations. Gratitude for all who have stood by me,” Reade said in a tweet.

“A special thanks to @democracynow and Amy Goodman The major outlet that allowed me to relay my history with Biden.

“I have been smeared and called vile names by Biden supporters. I was also accused of being called a Russian agent. I am not,” she said.  “I will continue to speak out.”

In a statement to Newsweek the former Biden staffer said that she came out about the allegations because she wants powerful men to be held accountable.

“I was trying to have a deeper conversation about sexual harassment in the workplace and powerful men,” Reade said.

“I’m not going to get traditional justice, like with [Harvey] Weinstein’s case. I’m looking for something more existential-to not have to keep a secret because it’s somebody powerful,” she said.

“Women have a right to tell their story, and reporters have an obligation to rigorously vet those claims,” Biden’s Deputy Campaign Manager and Communications Director Kate Bedingfield said.

“We encourage them to do so, because these accusations are false,” she said in a statement to Newsweek.

These allegations are false? How can that be? We were told, by your Party, that every woman has to be believed.
