As part of the Democrat and media-coordinated smear effort against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, one of the allegations of sexual misconduct came in the form of an anonymous letter from “Jane Doe from Oceanside, California” that accused Kavanaugh of rape several decades ago.
As was revealed Friday by the Senate Judiciary Committee, a woman eventually came forward to claim she was “Jane Doe.” But after an investigation revealed that her story was just a “ploy” for attention, President Donald Trump called her out for her “disgusting false statements.”
Committee recommends criminal charges
Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley released a letter Friday addressed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christoper Wray that recommended further investigation and criminal prosecution of a woman named Judy Munro-Leighton.
The letter alleged that Munro-Leighton had made “materially false statements” to the committee about Kavanaugh and therefore served as an “obstruction” to their sincere efforts at investigating the several allegations against him.
The letter also revealed that Munro-Leighton had been exposed by committee investigators as a “left-wing activist” who was “decades older” than Kavanaugh, who actually lived in Kentucky — not California or Washington D.C. — and had never actually met Kavanaugh, much less been raped by him.
The committee’s Twitter feed also posted a lengthy thread detailing Munro-Leighton’s deception, which had merely been “a ploy” and “tactic” designed to garner “attention” for Munro-Leighton, who had been actively opposed to Kavanaugh’s nomination since before any of the misconduct allegations against him arose.
A quote from Grassley made clear that he appreciated everyone who came forward to share relevant information with the committee, but added, “when individuals intentionally mislead the Committee, they divert Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations and materially impede our work. Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal.”
Grassley reiterated, “It is illegal to make materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements to Congressional investigators. It is illegal to obstruct Committee investigations.”
The President responds
On Saturday, Trump tweeted, “A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanaugh has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or FAKE!”
“Can you imagine if he didn’t become a Justice of the Supreme Court because of her disgusting False Statements. What about the others? Where are the Dems on this?” his post continued.

This leftist activist who stood opposed to Kavanaugh from the moment he was nominated attempted to latch on to the sexual misconduct allegations against him and falsely portray herself as one of his supposed victims in order to gain some attention.
Unfortunately for her, committee investigators discovered her ruse and she has now been recommended for criminal prosecution for her crimes, and could soon find that she has garnered the wrong sort of attention.
