Tara Reade’s Biden Complaint Is Now An ‘Inactive Case’ In D.C.
The Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPDC) has changed the status of a sexual assault complaint filed against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden from active to inactive, One America News Network’s Richard Pollack reported Wednesday.
Tara Reade worked as a U.S. Senate staffer for Biden in 1993, the year in which she has accused him of kissing her, touching her and penetrating her with his fingers without her consent. She filed the report with MPDC on April 9.
“It is outside the criminal statute of limitations so there is no mechanism available for them to keep it active,” Reade told this reporter. “I filed it so I would have an extra layer of safety and to demonstrate I am willing to cooperate with law enforcement and any investigation regarding what happened.”
MPDC Public Affairs Specialist Brianna Jordan told the Daily Caller Wednesday “this is an inactive case and there are no additional details to provide.”
The Biden campaign has denied the assault allegation, saying it “absolutely did not happen” and that the former Vice President and Senator “firmly believes that women have a right to be heard — and heard respectfully.”
Tara Reade alleges that Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993 while she was working in his Washington, D.C. office. Her brother, Collin Moulton, recently told Business Insider he remembered his sister saying Biden “had his hand under her clothes at some point.” He is one of at least five people to corroborate details of Reade’s story.

In a recent interview with The Intercept, Reade described an anonymous phone call her mother made to CNN’s “Larry King Live” asking for advice for her daughter, who was “sexually harassed and retaliated against” while working for a “prominent senator.” The Media Research Center later uncovered and released the damning clip from a 1993 airing of King’s show on CNN (above).
Biden had already represented Delaware as a U.S. Senator for two decades at the time of the alleged assault. He maintained his seat until becoming Vice President in January 2009, a position he held for eight years.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defended Biden during an appearance on CNN Thursday morning, adding that she still supports the presumptive nominee despite the sexual assault accusations against him. CNN host Alisyn Camerota noted that even though the Biden campaign has denied any wrongdoing, Joe Biden has not addressed Reade’s allegation himself.
“I have great sympathy for any women who bring forth an allegation,” said Pelosi. “I’m a big strong supporter of the MeToo movement. I think it’s been, it’s made a great contribution to our country, and I do support Joe Biden. I’m satisfied with how he has responded.”

Durham to testify before House Judiciary Committee
On June 20, Special Counsel John Durham will testify appear before the House Intelligence Committee in a closed-door briefing. The next day, he will testify in front of the Judiciary Committee about his 300-page reportdetailing his investigation into the FBI probe of alleged collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russian officials.
The news broke Friday that Durham will be testifying on the report, which found the Department of Justice and the FBI did not have “any actual evidence of collusion” between Russian officials and Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Instead, the agencies began their Crossfire Hurricane investigation based on “raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence,” the report said. “Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane and related intelligence activities, we conclude that the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described in this report,” Durham wrote.
The report also confirmed that the FBI did not give due consideration to the possibility that the Steele Dossier, which was used to obtain a FISA warrant to surveil Trump campaign aide Carter Page, was Russian disinformation.
FBI leaders displayed “serious lack of analytical rigor,” according to Durham, and they relied significantly on. “investigative leads provided or funded (directly or indirectly) by Trump’s political opponents,” referring to staffers and allies of then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, whose campaign funded the Steele dossier through its law firm Perkins Coie.
National Review reminds readers, “The dossier was created by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele and accused Trump and his campaign aides of collaborating with Kremlin officials.”
Durham released his report nearly four years after then-attorney general Bill Barr tasked him with investigation the origins of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.
The FBI responded to the report in saying that the “conduct in 2016 and 2017 that Special Counsel Durham examined was the reason that current FBI leadership already implemented dozens of corrective actions, which have now been in place for some time.”
“Had those reforms been in place in 2016, the missteps identified in the report could have been prevented,” the bureau said. “This report reinforces the importance of ensuring the FBI continues to do its work with the rigor, objectivity, and professionalism the American people deserve and rightly expect.”
