(Claire Russel, Liberty Headlines) Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said she believes Tara Reade, the former congressional staffer who accused presidential candidate Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her, but will vote for him anyway.

“I do believe Reade,” Omar told the Sunday Times. “Justice can be delayed but should never be denied.”

But he is also the Democrats’ best chance at beating President Trump, she said.

Reade’s allegation against Biden has been corroborated by at least four independent sources, a court document, and a television clip from the 1990s.

Despite this evidence, most Democrats continue to ignore Reade or, worse, wage a smear campaign against her.

But some of the more progressive Democrats, Omar included, have been more willing to entertain Reade’s allegation — if for no other reason than because they’ve always opposed Biden’s candidacy.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has also said Reade’s allegation deserves a thorough investigation, because it “certainly seems as though something has happened” between Biden and Reade.

And although this is a “messy moment,” Democrats need to live up to the standard they’ve created, she said last month.

“If we want, if we again want to have integrity, you can’t say, you know—both believe women, support all of this, until it inconveniences you, until it inconveniences us,” she said during an online forum in April.
