'I plan on supporting and helping the VP, Joe Biden, in defeating Trump,' Omar said

Progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) declared she intends to help p former Vice President Joe Biden defeat President Donald Trump in the coming November election.

But just a day ago, Omar said she believed Biden's former Senate staffer, Tara Reade, who accused of sexual assault in March.

During an interview with ABC News’ “Good Morning America,” Omar noted that some parts have been corroborated, but added it was not her “place to litigate” Reade's allegations.

“[F]irst off, let me say I plan on supporting and helping the VP, Joe Biden, in defeating Trump,” Omar said.

“I think this is one of the most important elections of our lifetime, and we all have to do everything that we can to restore our democracy and instill hope in what’s possible."

"I also think that it’s important for us to create a space where we allow for survivors to come forward, and that has been consistent with my values, and I think we can do both.”

“There’s obviously parts of what [Reade] has said that have been corroborated and parts that haven’t, that is not my place to litigate her story,” she added.

“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.”

On Monday, Omar wrote on social media:

"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," she said.

Omar’s remarks echo that of a New York Times Op-Ed earlier this month, which suggested ignoring Biden's sexual assault accuser Tara Reade is "worth it" so Biden can beat President Donald Trump in the election.

Reade accused Biden of inappropriately touching her and penetrating her with his fingers while kissing her forcibly without her consent.

Biden has denied the allegations insisting they “never happened.”
