LIFE NEWS reports: Senate Democrats and abortion activists did their best to promote unproven allegations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh before his confirmation vote in the Senate. Now, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is looking for a possible criminal probe against people whose accusations appeared the most bogus.
During his confirmation hearings before the United States Senate, a number of women made unsubstantiated claims that Justice Brett Kavanaugh had assaulted them or observed assaults against others.
Many of those claims have been found wanting in light of additional FBI investigations, for lack of evidence, or as witnesses who say none of these assaults ever happened came forward. Now, a woman who claimed Kavanaugh had raped her admits they’ve ever even met. Grassley referred Judy Munro-Leighton for criminal prosecution and revealed her actions were part of a ploy to take down Kavanaugh’s nomination.
From the letter:
Under questioning by Committee investigators, Ms. Munro-Leighton admitted, contrary to her prior claims, that she had not been…assaulted by Judge Kavanaugh and was not the author of the original “Jane Doe” letter. 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. I did that as a way to grab attention.
She further confessed to Committee investigators that (1) she “just wanted to get attention”; (2) “it was a tactic”; and (3) “that was just a ploy.” She told Committee investigators that she had called Congress multiple times during the Kavanaugh hearing process – including prior to the time Dr. Ford’s allegations surfaced – to oppose his nomination.
Regarding the false …assault allegation she made via her email to the Committee, she said: “I was angry, and I sent it out.” When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanaugh, she said: “Oh Lord, no.”
Here is more from a letter Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley just released about the false accuser to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray:
Last month, Grassley referred Julie Swetnick and her lawyer Michael Avenatti to the Department of Justice for a possible criminal investigation over allegations they made false statements to Congress. Swetnick was the third woman to accuse Judge Brett Kavanaugh of misconduct, and she appeared to have invented wild claimsof …parties she and Kavanaugh allegedly attended, despite no proof or evidence supporting the claims…
Swetnick, who is being represented by Michael Avenatti, sent a declaration to the Senate Judiciary Committee claiming that she attended house parties in the early 1980s where she saw Kavanaugh mistreating women and spiking their drinks.
But now the pair may be held liable for the apparently false claims.
