Far-left Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar revealed over the weekend that she believed the accusations of sexual assault levied against presidential nominee Joe Biden, and on Monday, revealed she’ll be voting for the alleged rapist anyways.
After Omar revealed that she believed Biden’s accuser Tara Reade, Omar was shredded by the left and then admitted that she would still be casting her vote for Joe Biden come November.
“Ms. Omar I am not an admirer,” a user tweeted at Omar. “We don’t think -we know- that MAGA and Russia are working to defeat a mod dem. I found the comments irresponsible. You should’ve said: ‘I don’t know If Tara Reade is telling the truth and of course, as a surrogate of Bernie’s, I didn’t want Biden.’”
Omar, in response said, “Believing survivors is consistent with my values. Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump.”
In an interview with the U.K.’s Sunday Times, Omar said that Reade should not be denied justice, and that if it were up to her, Biden would not be the nominee. “I do believe Reade,” said Omar. “Justice can be delayed, but should never be denied.”
Omar joins fellow squad member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who said earlier this month that its clear “something has happened between the two” referring to Biden and Reade.
“There have been investigative journalists that have corroborated certain aspects of her account – that is undeniable – [and] have raised questions about other aspects of her account,” Ocasio-Cortez told NPR. “It certainly seems as though something has happened. I’m not sure… Frankly, this is a messy moment, and I think we need to acknowledge that – that it is not clear-cut.”
The majority of the mainstream media has tried their hardest to bury the story of Biden’s accuser. Others, however, have made it very clear that Biden will get their vote no matter what.
Author Linda Hirshman in a recent op-ed for the New York Times said “All major Democratic Party figures have indicated they’re not budging on the presumptive nominee, and the transaction costs of replacing him would be suicidal. Barring some miracle, it’s going to be Mr. Biden.”
Hirshman then went on to say that “the cost of dismissing Tara Reade — and, worse, weakening the voices of future survivors — is worth it.”
In March, Reade claimed that then-Senator Joe Biden sexually assaulted her while she served as an aide in his Senate offices during the Clinton administration.
She has since had a number of individuals come forward to corroborate her story along with partaking in numerous interviews where she detailed her account.
Recently surfaced evidence also suggests that Reade’s mother called in to CNN’s Larry King in the 1990s to complain about a prominent senator with whom her daughter had “problems.”
Evidence also emerged that appeared to support Reade’s claim when the San Louis Obispo Tribune reported on court documents from 1996 that revealed she had complained to her then-husband about sexual harassment from someone in Biden’s office in 1993.
“The declaration — exclusively obtained by The Tribune in San Luis Obispo, California — does not say Biden committed the harassment nor does it mention Reade’s more recent allegations of sexual assault,” reported the outlet. “Reade’s then-husband Theodore Dronen wrote the court declaration. Dronen at the time was contesting a restraining order Reade filed against him days after he filed for divorce, Superior Court records show.”
