Brett Kavanaugh to be denied inaugural walk down supreme court steps

So said one reader on Facebook about a LifeZette story published about a Kentucky woman who has admitted she lied about the rape charges she leveled against Brett M. Kavanaugh - the man whom President Donald Trump nominated in early July of this year to the Supreme Court of the United States.

She has now been referred to the justice department, and reports also say that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will interrogate her. 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.

"A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanaugh has just admitted that she was lying - her story was totally made up, or FAKE!" Kamala Harris, D-Calif., accusing Brett Kavanaugh of raping her now admits she engaged in a "ploy" against the then-Supreme Court nominee. "Where are the Dems on this?"

"The Committee is grateful to citizens who come forward with relevant information in good faith, even if they are not one hundred percent sure about what they know", Grassley said. Susan Collins (R-Maine) made a remarkable and televised speech outlining her reasoning for voting in favor of the Kavanaugh nomination after all was said and done.

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

"Grassley requested that Munro-Leighton be investigated for making "materially false statements" and for obstruction of the committee's investigation into misconduct claims against Kavanaugh", The Hill reported. In her letter, she claimed that she felt a "Jane Doe" letter wouldn't get any attention so she chose to come forward with her name.

Trump also mentioned it Saturday while the crowd chanted "lock her up" in reference to Munro-Leighton.

The president also questioned the validity of other unproven accusations made against the Justice and asked where are the Democrats on this. "I say definitely prison time!" "She has stood by her charges - despite denials by Kavanaugh under oath". "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".

October 3: The Senate Judiciary Committee received an email from Judy Munro-Leighton stating that she was the alleged "Jane Doe" from the letter.

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.
