Biden Accuser Tara Reade Fires Back After Psaki Says Biden Sexual Misconduct Claims Were ‘Heavily Litigated’

Tara Reade, the woman who has accused President Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her back in the 1990s, has fired back after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that the sexual misconduct claims made against him have been “heavily litigated.”

Backstory: Psaki Claims Sexual Harassment Allegations Against Biden Were ‘Heavily Litigated’ Already

Reade Fires Back At Psaki

“Ask Psaki: Did I miss the investigation and litigation?” Reade tweeted. “I sure did not miss the smears and attacks on my character during Joe Biden’s campaign as I came forward. Was it safe to come forward? I think not.”

Reade told The New York Post that “what’s boneheaded is Psaki using legal term of art, ‘heavily litigated’ … that is going to haunt them.” She added that the case was never litigated at all, and that it upset her to hear Psaki say that Biden believes in “women being respected and having their voices heard and being allowed to tell their stories.”

“That bulls–t Psaki said yesterday really got under my skin — when she said it’s safe for women to come forward… I’m a poster child for how that’s untrue,” Reade continued.

“The term litigated is referring to legal action — none of that happened to the other seven women or myself,” Reade stated, referring to the other women who have accused Biden of sexual misconduct. “That misleads the public.”

Reade Says She’ll Sue Biden If She Needs To 

Reade also pledged that she would sue the president if he makes what she considers to be defamatory remarks. However, she added that she will not sue unless she’s confident that she can win.

“Defamation is one of the most difficult lawsuits to bring forward… and you could be responsible for fines and things like that,” Reade said. “If he were to say something that horrible, I’m sure I would consult an attorney and see if there was enough to go forward.”

Reade then said that she is upset by the lack of support she’s received from the left-wing “Squad” including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Cori Bush (D-MO). She said that Democrats have also “class shamed” her by focusing on her financial woes.

“It was really shocking how they class shamed me because I wasn’t wealthy… All the things [Cori Bush] went through were similar to things I went through, and they used that to shame me,” Reade said.
