Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Sept. 27, 2018.
"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". Grassley claimed that Munro-Leighton confessed to committee investigators that she had never met Kavanaugh and admitted her allegation was a "ploy" and "tactic" because she opposed the judge's nomination.
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!" It claimed that Kavanaugh and another man had raped her repeatedly in the back seat of a auto after offering her a ride home.
"Grassley's letter on the Munro-Leighton incident marks at least the fourth request Grassley has made of federal authorities to investigate those involved in the controversial Kavanaugh proceedings - which were extended due to a series of sexual assault allegations surfacing when Kavanaugh was in high school and college", Stanglin and Hayes noted.
September 25: Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, received an anonymous handwritten letter from "Jane Doe" which alleged that Kavanaugh and another male had raped her multiple times in a auto. He denied that any such thing had ever happened, but after the transcript of the call was released later that same day, multiple news sitesreported on the allegation made in the letter.
Investigators got in touch with her over the phone and Munro-Leighton admitted she wrote the email after seeing the letter in news reports. I did that as a way to grab attention.
Included in the email was a typed version of the Jane Doe letter, according to Grassley.
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.
Grassley said looking into Munro-Leighton's claims diverted resources on a time-sensitive manner. I saw it online.
"I was angry and I sent it out", the woman told investigators, according to Grassley's letter.
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".
