A lesser-known accuser of Justice Brett Kavanaugh was forced to admit she lied after a short probe revealed her claims were utterly impossible. The woman, who tried to ruin a person’s life and career, said she did it out of anger but reports show she never met Kavanaugh or could have known him.
According to Business Insider, Senate Judiciary Committee investigators concluded that a woman who claimed to be the author of an anonymous sexual-assault allegation against Justice Brett Kavanaugh had “fabricated” her accusation, according to a letter from Senate Judiciary chairman Chuck Grassley.
In the letter sent to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Republican Sen. Grassley of Iowa said his committee had investigated the allegations made by Judy Munro-Leighton, a woman who claimed she was the author of an anonymous handwritten letter that detailed the graphic sexual assault allegations.
The anonymous, undated letter Munro-Leighton referenced was received by Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California in September, and was publicly released with Kavanaugh’s testimony on the Committee’s website on September 26. The “Jane Doe” in the letter claimed that Kavanaugh and his friend “sexually assaulted and raped me in his car,” but provided no timeframe of the incident, and no return address.
As Written By The Huffington Post:
Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley referred Munro-Leighton to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray for investigation in a letter dated Friday.
According to Grassley, committee staff received an email from Munro-Leighton on Oct. 3 in which she claimed to be the letter’s author but was “deathly afraid” of going public.
When committee staff eventually spoke with Munro-Leighton, she recanted, saying she only sent the email “as a way to grab attention” because she felt angry.
Investigators found that she lived in Kentucky, not California. She told them she had never met Kavanaugh.
