Woman Reveals She Made Up Allegation Against Justice Kavanaugh

Woman Reveals She Made Up Allegation Against Justice Kavanaugh

A letter signed by "Jane Doe" from Oceanside, California, was sent to Sen.

A woman who claimed she was raped by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh later recanted her claim and admitted she lied. She later changed her story to say she saw Justice Kavanaugh and his friend near a punch bowl, and could not identify them as having actually been part of any rape. Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal."The timing of the request could help reignite Kavanaugh's role in the midterm elections".

Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Friday that the change is being made "out of an abundance of caution due to security concerns".

Subsequently, Committee investigators began looking into Munro-Leighton's allegations.

"I am Jane Doe from Oceanside CA Kavanaugh raped me", Ms. Munro-Leighton wrote in an October 3 email, claiming to have been a victim of the judge.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, revealed the news in a letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department on Friday, asking them to prosecute Munro-Leighton for lying to and obstructing Congress.

Postmarked September 19 in San Diego, the letter detailed an alleged gang rape by Kavanaugh and a friend in the back seat of auto.

"I was angry, and I sent it out", she said.

Included in the email was a typed version of the Jane Doe letter, according to Grassley.

"This was a serious and thorough investigation that left no stone unturned in our pursuit of the facts", said Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the committee, in a statement about the report on the committee majority's probe.

Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation process was delayed while the committee investigated a number of sexual assault and harassment claims, none of which have been corroborated by any public evidence to date.

Kavanaugh won Senate confirmation last month after a divisive fight over allegations that he committed sexual assault decades ago. "It is illegal to make materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements to Congressional investigators".

Beyond the allegations, Kavanaugh's reputation as an ultra-conservative has generated fear among liberals and moderates that he will opine from the bench against women's reproductive rights and worker, voter and environmental protections.

According to the report, two unnamed men separately contacted the committee "claiming that they believed they had an encounter with Dr. Ford around the time of the alleged incident".

Munro-Leighton admitted her lies were a "tactic" and "ploy" to "get attention".

The Senate ultimately voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court after Sen.
