Pres. Trump comments on allegedly false accusation against Justice Kavanaugh

WASHINGTON DC- JUNE 15 Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch talks with Chief Justice John Roberts on the steps of the Supreme Court following his official investiture at the Supreme Court

On Oct 7 this year, the U.S. confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, as Republicans dismissed sexual assault accusations against the conservative judge and delivered a major victory to President Donald Trump.

In October, a Kentucky woman named Judy Munro-Leighton came forward as the author of an anonymous letter in which she claimed Kavanaugh and another person had raped her in the backseat of a auto.

Democrats and lawyers for some of Kavanaugh's accusers have said committee Republicans inappropriately limited the investigation's scope.

Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations against him.

And 89 days after President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh to the nation's highest court, he was confirmed by the Senate, on October 6, 2018, by a vote of 50-48. The Committee's investigation has involved communicating with numerous individuals claiming to have relevant information.

Munro-Leighton contacted the committee in October claiming she wrote an anonymous letter accusing the judge of sexual misconduct.

Investigators found no evidence to support either woman's claims.

Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Friday that the change is being made "out of an abundance of caution due to security concerns". When directly asked by Committee investigators if she was, as she had claimed, the "Jane Doe" from Oceanside, California, who had sent the letter to Senator Harris, she admitted: 'No, no, no.

One of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh's accusers admitted this week that she made up her lurid tale of a backseat vehicle rape, saying it "was a tactic" to try to derail the judge's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

The accusation from the anonymous letter was one of many that were leveled against Kavanaugh, who would eventually replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

Shortly after Dr. Ford's allegation surfaced, Sen.

The "Jane Doe" in the letter claimed that Kavanaugh and his friend "sexually assaulted and raped me in his vehicle", but provided no timeframe of the incident, and no return address.

Mr. Grassley's investigators tried to reach her for a month but were unsuccessful until this week, when they spoke to her by phone and she confessed that she was not the original Jane Doe, and "did that as a way to grab attention". "But when individuals intentionally mislead the Committee, they divert Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations and materially impede our work".

But the Senate Judiciary Committee noted that six Federal Bureau of Investigation reports on Kavanaugh over the course of his career in politics and on the bench, which included interviews with almost 150 individuals who knew Kavanaugh, "did not reveal any alcohol abuse or inappropriate sexual behavior".

"I was angry and I sent it out", the woman told investigators, according to Grassley's letter. The bitter drama surrounding the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings energized GOP voters who gaveRepublican candidates across the nation with a lift in the polls. She says she did this to get attention and now I suspect she's going to get all she wanted and more.
