During his confirmation hearings before the United States Senate, a number of women made unsubstantiated claims that Justice Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted them or observed sexual assaults against other women.
Many of those claims have been found wanting in light of additional FBI investigations, for lack of evidence, or as witnesses who say none of these sexual assaults ever happened came forward. Now, a woman who claimed Kavanaugh had raped her admits they've ever even met. Grassley referred Judy Munro-Leighton for criminal prosecution and revealed her actions were part of a ploy to take down Kavanaugh's nomination.
From the letter:
Under questioning by Committee investigators, 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.
