Trump Slams Kavanaugh Accuser Who Admitted to Lying

Brett Kavanaugh to be denied inaugural walk down supreme court steps

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has sent another letter to the Department of Justice asking for an investigation of a woman who, by her own admission, made a false rape allegation against Judge Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing.

The president responded on Twitter writing, "A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanough has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or FAKE!" What about the others?

Munro-Leighton made her allegations in an email sent in October to committee staff, according to Grassley's letter to the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation. Committee investigators found that the woman had "fabricated" her accusation, according to a letter from Grassley to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. One might infer that the misconduct allegations had the ulterior goal of dispatching Kavanaugh without the bloody mess of a physical assassination.

The allegation came amid a number of other stories from women, including Dr. Christine Blasey Ford who testified that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party.

Kavanaugh was questioned about the letter in September under oath and categorically denied the allegations.

"The Committee is grateful to citizens who come forward with relevant information in good faith, even if they are not one hundred percent sure about what they know", Grassley said.

The supreme court steps were crowded with protesters for many days last month as the judge's confirmation remained on a knife edge, exacerbating deep political and cultural divisions, until he survived an 11th-hour investigation by the FBI. "Judy Munro-Leighton for investigation of potential violations of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001 (materially false statements) and 1505 (obstruction), for materially false statements she made to the Committee during the course of the Committee's investigation". She continued: "I know that [Jane Doe] will get no media attention, but I am deathly afraid of revealing any information about myself or my family". "I am not Jane Doe".

"The Committee is grateful to citizens who come forward with relevant information in good faith, even if they are not one hundred percent sure about what they know", Grassley said on November 2.

Subsequently, Committee investigators began looking into Munro-Leighton's allegations. Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal.

The report added: "Indeed, the evidence appears to support the position that Julie Swetnick and [her attorney Michael] Avenatti criminally conspired to make materially false statements to the Committee and obstruct the Committee's investigation". Committee investigators ran background on Munro-Leighton and, according to Grassley, found that she is a left-wing activist who is decades older than Kavanaugh and who lives in Kentucky, not California as she alleged in the letter.
