Brett Kavanaugh to be denied inaugural walk down supreme court steps

Brett Kavanaugh to be denied inaugural walk down supreme court steps

"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", Grassley wrote.

"Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal", Grassley added.

President Trump, who has made Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation process a rallying cry for supporters on the campaign trail, slammed a woman for making up an accusation against Kavanaugh during his investigation. "Judy Munro-Leighton for investigation of potential violations of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001 (materially false statements) and 1505 (obstruction), for materially false statements she made to the Committee during the course of the Committee's investigation".

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".

President Trump sounds off on a recent alleged admission by one of the women accusing now Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

"Indeed, the evidence appears to support the position that Julie Swetnick and Mr. Avenatti criminally conspired to make materially false statements to the Committee and obstruct the Committee's investigation". What about the others?

"It was a made-up story", Trump said of Munro-Leighton's allegedly recanted allegations, amplifying an argument he made on Twitter earlier Saturday.

September 25: Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, received an anonymous handwritten letter from "Jane Doe" which alleged that Kavanaugh and another male had raped her multiple times in a vehicle. "About rape, she lied, and then we're supposed to sit back and take it". She says she did this to get attention and now I suspect she's going to get all she wanted and more.

In order to investigate her sexual-assault claims, Committee investigators first attempted to reach her by phone on October 3, 2018, but were unsuccessful.

She then included a typed version of the Jane Doe letter. "She has stood by her charges - despite denials by Kavanaugh under oath".

The report concluded: "Committee investigators found no verifiable evidence that supported Dr. Ford's allegations against Justice Kavanaugh". "Among accusers who came forth during the hearings is 43-year-old Deborah Ramirez, who - according to The New Yorker - alleges that Kavanaugh [exposed himself to her] during a party".

Beyond the allegations, Kavanaugh's reputation as an ultra-conservative has generated fear among liberals and moderates that he will opine from the bench against women's reproductive rights and worker, voter and environmental protections.
