Trump Slams Kavanaugh Accuser Who Admitted to Lying

Senator Grassley reports that no third-party witnesses or other evidence substantiated any of the claims: "Following the separate and extensive investigations by both the Committee and the FBI, there was no evidence to substantiate any of the claims of sexual assault made against Justice Kavanaugh".

The anonymous, undated letter Munro-Leighton referenced was received by Democratic Sen.

"Regarding the false sexual-assault allegation she made via her email to the Committee, she said: 'I was angry, and I sent it out, '" Grassley wrote in his letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

When the committee investigators reached Munro-Leighton by phone on November 1, the woman admitted she "just wanted to get attention", "it was a tactic", and "that was just a ploy" during the confirmation process. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee.

Trump used the referral to cast doubts about the allegations that other women, including Christine Blasey Ford, have made against the now-Supreme Court justice.

On Oct. 3, three days before Kavanaugh was sworn in, Munro-Leighton sent the Senate Judiciary staff an e-mail that claimed she was the Jane Doe from the letter sent to Harris. "What happened to him and his family was an absolute disgrace", Trump said at a rally in North Carolina on October 26.

Swetnick and Avenatti are not the only ones facing a potential Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

In addition, Grassley also requested an FBI investigation into accuser Julie Swetnick and her attorney, porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti, who also represents Stormy Daniels.

The Senate Judiciary leader mentioned the seriousness behind the false claims made against Kavanaugh.

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.

"In short, during the Committee's time-sensitive investigation of allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, Ms. Munro-Leighton submitted a fabricated allegation, which diverted Committee resources".

He went on to warn that those providing false information to incriminate Kavanaugh have likely broken the law - indicating that they will probably face charges of their own in the near future.

"Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal", Grassley added. He said Senate investigators were able to track her down and found she lived in Kentucky, not California, and was a Democrat.

President Trump seized on the report Saturday, calling her "a vicious accuser".

The Senate Judiciary Committee has referred a woman to the FBI after investigators reportedly found she had falsified her allegations about being assaulted by Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Trump exclaimed on Twitter Saturday.

The US supreme court issued a statement on Friday to say that its newest judge, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, will not take the traditional walk down the courthouse steps after his ceremonial installation - because of security concerns. "Where are the Dems on this?" Over the course of two weeks Trump brought up Kavanaugh at rallies in Florida, Montana, Indiana, West Virginia, Missouri, Illinois, North Carolina and Wisconsin. It was fake. She lied about the story about rape - about rape, she lied.

The report lifts the lid on the scale of the investigative effort that was triggered by 11th-hour accusations against Kavanaugh. The woman who accused of Kavanaugh of sexual assault, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, also received death threats. "She has stood by her charges - despite denials by Kavanaugh under oath". "The letter contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh". "On September 26, 2018, Committee staff questioned Judge Kavanaugh about these allegations in a transcribed interview conducted under penalty of felony", the letter continued.
