Another Kavanaugh accuser admits to fabricating rape story


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

Sen. Charles E. Grassley, chairman of the Judiciary Committee revealed the fraud in a letter to the FBI and Justice Department Friday, asking them to prosecute Judy Munro-Leighton for lying to and obstructing Congress.

Mr. Grassley said Ms. Munro-Leighton is a left-wing activist who hijacked another “Jane Doe” anonymous report about a backseat rape and claimed it as her own story, calling it a “vicious assault.”



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

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.”

She admitted to the false allegation, and said she has actually never met Justice Kavanaugh.



“I was angry, and I sent it out,” she told investigators.

“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,” Mr. Grassley wrote. “When questioned by Committee investigators she admitted it was false, a ‘ploy,’ and a ‘tactic.’ She was opposed to Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.”

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

“What about the others? Where are the Dems on this?” he demanded via Twitter.

Mr. Grassley has previously asked the FBI to probe Julie Swetnick and her lawyer, anti-Trump crusader Michael Avenatti, for lying to Congress and obstructing. Ms. Swetnick had originally claimed to have been the victim of gang rapes involving Justice Kavanaugh during high school parties, saying she saw him and a friend spike punch to leave girls unable to resist. 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.

None of the witnesses she told NBC could corroborate her story were able to do so.

Indeed, NBC found one woman who despite a sworn statement backing up Ms. Swetnick, told the network Mr. Avenatti was twisting her words.

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.

He vehemently denied all of the claims.

He was confirmed, though only one Democrat joined with all but one Republican in backing him.
They should be ashamed of themselves. But don't your hold breath on that.

Everyone with a functioning brain already knew these people were just making up stories to derail the judge's confirmation anyway. So this doesn't tell us anything we didn't already know. Anyone who actually believed Kavanaugh was running around spiking punches and having gang rape parties is so far gone in partisan looney land I feel sorry for them.

So a random woman - who’s story i don’t recall to have been a part of the Kavanaugh scandal in the media at the time to begin with - admits that s she’s an attention whore who acted out of personal anger... and you call for Dems to need to be ashamed about it... while they have nothing to do with this whatsoever.
While the reps elected a guy president who actually admitted to sexual assault on tape, for the world to hear and know about.

Yeah, remain silent, and post as few as possible, that’s the best you can do.. just stick with being a passive troll at PH, who comes out of the woods every now and then... all you do is to embarrass the frequent trolls of your party here, IF you post something.
Upon what do you base the statement >> "president who actually admitted to sexual assault on tape" ?

Did anyone factor #3 in? She was not what the hearing was about. When a headline story like Ford's hits the news, someone just looking for attention often jumps in. Don't know why you are shocked or thought it was important.

In the absence of any witnesses. Ford's story has to be dealt with clinically. Spend 20 minutes reading about Palo Alto, where she teaches and your cynicism should rise. Doesn't prove she was lying, but it speaks to motive. The school has a master's program in Psychology and Social Justice. Her testimony likely makes her a hero to her colleagues.
