  • Brett Kavanaugh to be denied inaugural walk down supreme court steps

The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman wants a criminal investigation of a woman who said she wrote an anonymous letter alleging sexual misconduct by now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, but later recanted authorship and admitted she didn't know him.

Among those questioned, the report said, were Mark Judge, PJ Smyth, and Leland Keyser, the three individuals whom accuser Christine Blasey Ford claimed were present in the house when Kavanaugh allegedly threw her on a bed and sexually assaulted her sometime in the 1980s. Trump added, referring to the other women who accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Making time on the campaign trail before Tuesday's midterms, President Donald Trump voiced his condemnation of the Democrats' smear campaign targeting Kavanaugh after Grassley's letter was unveiled.

Grassley also referred Julie Swetnik, Michael Avenatti and an unnamed man for criminal prosecution after they made false claims to congressional investigators, as Townhall and other outlets also noted. Committee investigators found that the woman had "fabricated" her accusation, according to a letter from Grassley to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Investigators also found evidence of potential witness tampering and violations of Senate rules. Swetnick also made several contradictory statements about her claims during television interviews and refused to speak with committee investigators, the letter said.

She continued: "I know that ['] Jane Doe ['] will get no media attention, but I am deathly afraid of revealing any information about myself or my family".

One of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh's accusers admitted this week that she made up her lurid tale of a backseat auto rape, saying it "was a tactic" to try to derail the judge's confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Grassley said looking into Munro-Leighton's claims diverted resources on a time-sensitive manner.

"Following the separate and extensive investigations by both the Committee and the FBI, there was no evidence to substantiate any of the claims of sexual assault made against Justice Kavanaugh", the report states.

The woman, Judy Munro-Leighton, admitted that she wanted to hurt Kavanaugh's policital career.

But the Senate Judiciary Committee noted that six Federal Bureau of Investigation reports on Kavanaugh over the course of his career in politics and on the bench, which included interviews with almost 150 individuals who knew Kavanaugh, "did not reveal any alcohol abuse or inappropriate sexual behavior".

She then included a typed version of the Jane Doe letter.

Throughout the process, Kavanaugh - a married father of two daughters and a highly respected judge on the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit - vehemently denied all such accusations and maintained his innocence. The bitter drama surrounding the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings energized GOP voters who gaveRepublican candidates across the nation with a lift in the polls.
