Trump raises doubts about Kavanaugh accusers after latest DOJ referral

Grassley wrote "that Munro-Leighton admitted to the committee on November 1 that she previously lied about an allegation that Kavanaugh and a friend raped her in the backseat of a auto", according to The Hill. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee ... Grassley said Committee investigators attempted to reach Munro-Leighton by phone on October 3, but were unsuccessful. "When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanugh, she said, 'Oh Lord, no'".

According to a 414-page report released by Grassley, investigators interviewed more than 40 people and reviewed all evidence, but found no corroboration of allegations against Kavanaugh. Munro-Leighton said "I did that as a way to grab attention".

Kavanaugh was questioned about the letter in September under oath and categorically denied the allegations.

Grassley referred a man whose name is redacted from the report for criminal investigation after he admitted on Twitter to fabricating the allegations against Kavanaugh.

Mr. Grassley has previously asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to probe Julie Swetnick and her lawyer, anti-Trump crusader Michael Avenatti, for lying to Congress and obstructing. The Committee's investigation has involved communicating with numerous individuals claiming to have relevant information. It claimed that Kavanaugh and another man had raped her repeatedly in the back seat of a auto after offering her a ride home.

"In short, during the Committee's time-sensitive investigation of allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, Ms. Munro-Leighton submitted a fabricated allegation, which diverted Committee resources".

At the rally, Trump also attacked Montana Democratic Sen.

He asked about every other accusation presented by Democrats against Kavanaugh.

"Remember when you're going in to vote, remember what you say".

The allegation came amid a number of other stories from women, including Dr. Christine Blasey Ford who testified that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party. "The letter contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh".

In addition to the allegations made by Christine Ford, the committee investigated claims made by Deborah Ramirez, Julie Swetnick, and three anonymous accusers.
