Trump Challenges Dems on Kavanaugh Accuser’s Admission That She Made It All Up: Where Are You on This?

President wants to know what those on the Left have to say

Where are they?

Where are the Democrats on a woman’s recent admission that she made up all of her charges of rape against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh?

The woman has admitted she never even met Kavanaugh — ever.

This is what President Donald Trump wants to know — as do scores of American citizens across the country.

On Saturday, Trump challenged those on the Left to speak up — to make some comment, say something — after Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, referred to the Department of Justice and the FBI for criminal prosecution a woman for making “materially false statements” after she clearly and wrongly accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of raping her.

“A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanaugh has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or FAKE!” Trump tweeted on Saturday.

“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?”

Here is Trump’s tweet from Saturday morning, posted just after 9:30 a.m.:

In a detailed letter made public on Friday, Grassley referred the woman — Judy Munro-Leighton of Kentucky — to authorities after his office said she alleged that Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her in the backseat of a car.

That’s a story that she now admits she made up out of whole cloth.

Back in September, a so-called “Jane Doe” letter made its way to the offices of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who is a member of the judiciary committee.

Investigators later asked Kavanaugh about the allegations — and he vehemently denied such a thing ever occurred. He called the charges a “crock” and a “farce.”

Other women also claimed Kavanaugh had committed sexual misconduct against them — most prominently, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychologist — but Kavanaugh immediately and consistently denied such things ever occurred.

Democrats “promised” they would continue to investigate some of the claims against Kavanaugh, as Fox News also noted.

After looking into the claims of “Jane Doe,” investigators ultimately determined Munro-Leighton to be a left-wing activist.

She’s also decades older than Kavanaugh — and lives in Kentucky.

She admitted openly that she has never met Kavanaugh.

In addition to Trump’s tweet about the developments, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway tweeted this weekend that “those who imbued her [the accuser] with automatic credibility share her shame in trying to destroy a decent man.”

And as one LifeZette reader noted astutely on Facebook on Saturday, “Even our local news is biased. They interview the Dems running for office [in the 2018 midterms] and ignore the GOP. There is not a word of this on our local stations. I avoid them like I avoid all the other fake news when they try to report national news because they only tell you it the way they want you to think it. Guess they think Americans don’t have a brain. We are slowly catching on, though.”

Late on Friday, Grassley sent a letter to the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the “fabricated allegations” received by the committee — and referred the individual for criminal prosecution.

“As you know, the Senate Judiciary Committee processed the nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States, leading to his eventual confirmation on October 6, 2018,” the letter says early on, in part.

“As part of that process, the Committee has investigated various allegations made against Judge Kavanaugh. The Committee’s investigation has involved communicating with numerous individuals claiming to have relevant information. While many of those individuals have provided the Committee information in good faith, it unfortunately appears some have not … I am writing to refer Ms. Judy Munro-Leighton for investigation of potential violations of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001 (materially false statements) and 1505 (obstruction), for materially false statements she made to the Committee during the course of the Committee’s investigation.”

Late on Friday, Grassley sent a letter to the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the “fabricated allegations” received by the committee — and referred the individual for criminal prosecution.

The letter continued, “On September 25, 2018, staffers for Senator [Kamala] Harris [of California], 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. The letter contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh.”

“The anonymous accuser alleged that Justice Kavanaugh and a friend,” the letter continued, “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 time frame, and failed to provide any location — beyond an automobile — in which these alleged incidents took place.”

“Regardless, Committee staff quickly began investigating the claims as part of the broader investigation, hindered by the limited information provided. On September 26, 2018, Committee staff questioned Judge Kavanaugh about these allegations in a transcribed interview conducted under penalty of felony,” the letter continued.

Eventually, as the full letter made clear, the accuser — by then identified as Judy Munro-Leighton — admitted the whole thing was a hoax done for “attention.”

“Under questioning by Committee investigators,” the letter continued.

“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. When directly asked by Committee investigators if she was, as she had claimed, the ‘Jane Doe’ from Oceanside, California, who had sent the letter to Senator Harris, she admitted: ‘No, no, no. I did that as a way to grab attention. I am not Jane Doe … but I did read Jane Doe’s letter. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee … I saw it online. It was news.”

She further said, as the Grassley letter indicated, “that (1) she ‘just wanted to get attention’; (2) ‘it was a tactic’; and (3) ‘that was just a ploy.’”

His letter also noted, “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.”
