Senate Judiciary Refers ANOTHER Kavanaugh Accuser For Criminal Investigation

President Donald Trump on Saturday launched an attack on all of the women who came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct and substance abuse against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Investigators started looking into Munro-Leighton's allegations in early October, after she sent an email to the committee claiming she was the woman who sent a letter to Sen. "The letter contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh". 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".

Grassley urged the Federal Bureau of Investigation and attorney general to give "utmost consideration" to the case, but added that Munro-Leighton's fabricated allegations should not discount sexual assault claims that were made in "good faith".

The revelation from Ford led to a sensational day of public testimony from her and then Kavanaugh before the Senate judiciary committee, which left Capitol Hill and much of the nation both riveted and disturbed.

Later on October 3, Judy Munro-Leighton emailed the committee claiming to be the "Jane Doe" of the letter and said she was "sharing with you the story of the night that Brett Kavanaugh and his friend sexually assaulted and raped me in his vehicle", calling it a "vicious assault".

"Regardless, Committee staff quickly began investigating the claims as part of the broader investigation, hindered by the limited information provided".

Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee during the third day of his confirmation hearing to serve as Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court at the Capitol in Washington on September 6, 2018.

Kavanaugh denied all the claims against him.

However, upon investigation, it was found that Munro-Leighton is a "left-wing activist", is decades older than Kavanaugh, and lives in Kentucky.

Eventually, as the full letter made clear, the accuser - by then identified as Judy Munro-Leighton - admitted the whole thing was a hoax done for "attention". I am not Jane Doe ... but I did read Jane Doe's letter.

"No, no, no. I did that as a way to grab attention", she told investigators. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee.I saw it online. Grassley said Committee investigators attempted to reach Munro-Leighton by phone on October 3, but were unsuccessful.

Last week, Grassley referred attorney Michael Avenatti and client Julie Swetnick - who accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct - for criminal investigation regarding a potential "conspiracy" to provide false statements to Congress and obstruct its investigation.
