Woman Reveals She Made Up Allegation Against Justice Kavanaugh

President Donald Trump raised doubts Saturday about the women who have accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault or misconduct after one individual was referred to the Justice Department for investigation.
Before Ford's testimony, Conservative lawyer Ed Whelan suggested in a odd series of tweets that a classmate of Kavanaugh's who looked like him may have assaulted her. President Donald Trump also subscribed to the theory. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., accusing Brett Kavanaugh of raping her now admits she engaged in a "ploy" against the then-Supreme Court nominee.
Like what you see? While many of those individuals have provided the Committee information in good faith, it unfortunately appears some have not ... "In addition to being from an anonymous accuser, the letter listed no return address, failed to provide any time frame, and failed to provide any location - beyond an automobile - in which these alleged incidents took place".
During his remarks in Montana, Trump dwelled extensively on Kavanaugh's confirmation - and focused on a woman whose name and accusations had not come up publicly in a hearing to explore allegations of sexual assault and misconduct made against the judge. In order to investigate her sexual-assault claims, Committee investigators first attempted to reach her by phone on October 3, 2018, but were unsuccessful.
Munro-Leighton was brought into the saga after a graphic and anonymous letter was sent to Sen. "The whole thing is just a crock, farce, wrong, didn't happen, not anything close", according to 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". She said she claimed to be Jane Doe so the letter would gain attention.
"No, no, no. I did that as a way to grab attention", Munro-Leighton said to investigators. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee ... I saw it online.
The supreme court steps were crowded with protesters for many days last month as the judge's confirmation remained on a knife edge, exacerbating deep political and cultural divisions, until he survived an 11th-hour investigation by the FBI.
In addition, Grassley also requested an FBI investigation into accuser Julie Swetnick and her attorney, porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti, who also represents Stormy Daniels.
Grassley said looking into Munro-Leighton's claims diverted resources on a time-sensitive manner.
"I was angry, and I sent it out", Munro-Leighton said of her sexual assault allegation.
