Police in Washington, D.C., are investigating a sexual assault claim against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, a police department spokeswoman confirmed on Wednesday.

"This is an active, ongoing investigation that is part of our regular review process," a police spokeswoman told The Daily Caller on Wednesday, noting that the D.C. statute of limitations law would preclude prosecution of Biden if he were found to have actually committed the assault.

Tara Reade, a former Biden staffer, earlier this month filed a criminal complaint against the politician, claiming he assaulted her in 1993. Reade filed the claim with police in D.C. She said the assault took place 27 years ago in a Capitol Hill office building.
