Kavanaugh Accuser Admits She Lied, Grassley Opens Investigation
A Kentucky woman who was one of several women who made claims against Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh, has reversed her claim. Judy Munro-Leighton of Kentucky accused Judge Kavanaugh of rape. Munro-Leighton claimed to be the author of a “Jane Doe” letter accusing the judge of rape, but now she’s admitting to having lied. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is ordering an investigation into both the letter and Munro-Leighton’s role in potential false claims.
“Under questioning by Committee investigators,” a Senate Judiciary letter stated, “Ms. Munro-Leighton admitted, contrary to her prior claims, that she had not been sexually 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. I am not Jane Doe … but I did read Jane Doe’s letter. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee … I saw it online. It was news.”
The letter described Kavanaugh as a monster who raped “Jane Doe” or Munro-Leighton in the back of a car in Oceanside, California. Senator and anti-Trump, anti-Kavanaugh Senator Kamala Harris first referred the letter to the Committee investigators on September 25th. The letter used no return address or legal name, no time frames, and ultimately, no proof. Yet Harris and several Democrats referenced the letter on a number of occasions as evidence of Kavanaugh’s immoral past behaviors.
Judge Kavanaugh called the letter’s contents “ridiculous.”
President Trump was quick to respond to the new revelations.
A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanaugh has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or FAKE! Can you imagine if he didn’t become a Justice of the Supreme Court because of her disgusting False Statements. What about the others? Where are the Dems on this?

Now, it seems, Kavanaugh was correct in his classification of the letter.
Grassley submitted a formal letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions requesting an investigation into the matter.
“As you know, the Senate Judiciary Committee processed the nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States, leading to his eventual confirmation on October 6, 2018,” a portion of the letter reads.
