Rep. Ilhan Omar still backs Joe Biden even though she believes Tara Reade

Rep. Ilhan Omar said she will support Joe Biden’s presidential bid, while adding that sexual assault survivors should be believed, including the woman who raised allegations against the former vice president.

Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota, was asked about comments she made in an interview published in the Sunday Times of London that she believed Tara Reade, who said Biden sexually assaulted her when she was a staffer in his Senate office in 1991.

“There’s obviously parts of what she has said that have been corroborated and parts that haven’t, that is not my place to litigate her story,” Omar told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Tuesday. “I think it’s important when someone says they have been assaulted and they see themselves as survivors that we, as we have been saying, believe survivors.”
