This take from CNN’s Manu Raju, in response to a tweet by President Trump, suggests that nobody on Capitol Hill took the false rape allegation against Supreme Court nominee by Judy Munro-Leighton seriously, and in fact they only two they took seriously were Christine Blasey Ford and Debbie Ramirez.

“Nobody” is a bold claim and the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway dug up at least one “nobody” on the Hill who seemed to take every accusation seriously.

Hey … that’s Raju’s network!

Hemingway also found that Rep. Ted Lieu was pretty quick to add new accusers to the list:

It so happens that Becket Adams tackled the same subject in an opinion piece at the Washington Examiner Monday, confirming that yes, the media did cover the admittedly false accusation by Munro-Leighton, who has been referred to the Justice Department for criminal investigation.

Adams writes:

As it turns out, though, Munro-Leighton’s absurd accusation was covered by the press, albeit not as much as the allegations leveled by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Debora Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick.

CBS News mentioned the “Jane Doe, Oceanside, CA” allegation in the conclusion of a report published on Sept. 27. The San Diego Union Tribune published an entire story on the matter on Oct. 1. That story was cross-posted later at a San Diego Fox affiliate’s website. That same day, the Daily Mail went with one of its typical overly-long headlines, claiming, “Brett Kavanaugh denies ANOTHER sex assault claim.” The left-leaning news site Raw Story published a headline Oct. 1 titled, “‘Powerful senators won’t believe me’: New violent and explicit accusation surfaces against Brett Kavanaugh.” City News Service, a local California news source, published a report on the matter on Oct. 2. That story was also cross-posted later by a CBS News affiliate. Meanwhile, NBC News affiliate KNSD reported on Oct. 2 that Kavanaugh had denied the Oceanside rape claim. ABC News affiliate KGTV also reported he had denied it. The Washington Times published a story that same day titled, “Kamala Harris, in the Judiciary cloak room, with letter accusing Brett Kavanaugh of rape.”

Also, let’s not forget the fact that Munro-Leighton got the idea to claim ownership of the letter because she heard about it on the news.

So we have Rep. Ted Lieu on the Hill tweeting about the allegations, and CNN and many other media outlets reporting on them.

Nope, Sen. Chuck Grassley isn’t playing around.
