Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has referred another one of Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers to the FBI for possible criminal prosecution after she admitted to Committee investigators that she made up allegations that Kavanaugh had raped her in a car:
BREAKING: This is quite a read. Woman who claimed Justice Kavanaugh raped her now admits they’ve never even met. She’s been referred to DOJ/FBI for investigation and could soon be in serious legal trouble. https://t.co/QhFXt9yhRn

This referral stems from an anonymous “Jane Doe” letter that the committee received in September that, in graphic detail, said Justice Kavanaugh had raped the letter writer and her friend “several times each” in the back of a car:
On September 25, 2018, staffers for Senator Harris, a Committee member, referred an
undated handwritten letter to Committee investigators that her California office had received
signed under the alias “Jane Doe” from Oceanside, California.1 The letter contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh. The anonymous accuser alleged that Justice Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her “several times each” in the backseat of a car. In addition to being from an anonymous accuser, the letter listed no return address, failed to provide any timeframe, and failed to provide any location — beyond an automobile — in which these alleged incidents took place.
But the Committee took the letter seriously and even questioned Justice Kavanaugh under oath about the allegation:
They read him the letter in full as part of the questioning.3 In response
to the anonymous allegations, Judge Kavanaugh unequivocally stated: “[T]he whole thing is
ridiculous. Nothing ever — anything like that, nothing . . . . [T]he whole thing is just a crock, farce,
wrong, didn’t happen, not anything close.”4 Later that day, September 26th, the Committee
publicly released the transcript of that interview with Judge Kavanaugh, which included the full
text of the Jane Doe letter.5
The Committee then received an email from a one Judy Munro-Leighton who said she was “Jane Doe”:
Then, on October 3, 2018, Committee staff received an email from a Ms. Judy Munro-Leighton
with a subject line claiming: “I am Jane Doe from Oceanside CA — Kavanaugh raped
me.”6 Ms. Munro-Leighton wrote that she was “sharing with you the story of the night that Brett
Kavanaugh and his friend sexually assaulted and raped me in his car” and referred to “the letter
that I sent to Sen. Kamala Harris on Sept. 19 with details of this vicious assault.” 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.” She then included a typed version of the Jane Doe letter.
But, surprise! Munro-Leighton was a liar:
Committee investigators began investigating Ms. Munro-Leighton’s allegations. Given her
relatively unique name, Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate
Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than
Judge Kavanaugh; and (3) lives in neither the Washington DC area nor California, but in Kentucky.
In order to investigate her sexual-assault claims, Committee investigators first attempted to reach
her by phone on October 3, 2018, but were unsuccessful. On October 29, Committee investigators
again attempted contact, leaving a voicemail. In response, Ms. Munro-Leighton left Committee
investigators a voicemail on November 1, 2018.
And then this genius admitted to the Committee investigators that she made the whole thing up:
She further confessed to Committee investigators that (1) she “just wanted to get attention”;
(2) “it was a tactic”; and (3) “that was just a ploy.” She told Committee investigators that she had
called Congress multiple times during the Kavanaugh hearing process – including prior to the time
Dr. Ford’s allegations surfaced – to oppose his nomination. Regarding the false sexual-assault allegation she made via her email to the Committee, she said: “I was angry, and I sent it out.”
When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanaugh, she said:
“Oh Lord, no.”
“Lock her up,” as they say.
