This revelation is another example of what Tuesday’s election is all about: rewarding those who are relying on threats, harassment, assault and lies in an effort to bully you into voting for them, or a vision focused on the economy and national security of this nation so the future is secure for your family.
The foundation of my commentary during the Justice Kavanaugh hearings about the claims of sexual assault, was the politicizing of this issue would harm the issue as a whole. The entire Democrat Party circus essentially encouraged, invited and then elevated every claim, including those that were obviously false, as something that was legitimate and must be presumed true.
To top it off, there was the absurd demand, that we “believe all women,” simply because of their gender. It created an environment that mocked the generational effort for survivors of sexual assault and abuse to be taken seriously, because we are serious. Women have never been asking for an end to due process, we had been asking to be included in the justice system and afforded the process and protections afforded other crime victims.
We worked to be treated fairly. People who argue for the abandonment of due process and fairness are people who can not withstand scrutiny.
And then the Democrats decided to obliterate all that work, abandoned women everywhere by making a mockery of the seriousness of sexual assault by reducing it to a political cudgel. But that wasn’t enough– now we officially have what I feared would be the case– an accuser who admits she made it all up. She admitted to Senate investigators it was “a ploy” and a way to “grab attention.”
Senators Feinstein and Harris should be ashamed of themselves. They not only facilitated an attempt to politically assassinate an innocent man, but they did extraordinary damage to all women in the process.
Sen. Chuck Grassley asked the federal authorities on Friday to investigate another person he says made false claims against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Grassley, in a letter to the Department of Justice and FBI, said a woman by the name of Judy Munro-Leighton took responsibility for authoring an anonymous letter that made allegations that Kavanaugh and a friend raped her. After she was tracked down and interviewed by Senate investigators, the woman recanted and said she was not, in fact. the author and had never met Kavanaugh.
Grassley claims the woman is a left-wing activist and told investigators it was “just a ploy,” he wrote in the letter. Her full comments to investigators were not made available and efforts by USA TODAY to reach Munro-Leighton were unsuccessful…
Grassley has thus far asked federal authorities to investigate: Julie Swetnick, who accused Kavanaugh of drunken behavior and sexual assault; Michael Avenatti, her lawyer who also represented porn star Stormy Daniels in a suit against President Donald Trump; and a man, who was never publicly identified but recanted an allegation he’d made against Kavanaugh.
President Trump on Saturday challenged Democrats to speak up after Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee referred a woman to the FBI for “materially false statements” when she accused Supreme Court 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!” he tweeted. “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?”
In early October, committee staff received an email from Munro-Leighton saying that she was the Jane Doe from California who sent the letter and that “Kavanaugh raped me.” But investigators went on to determine that Munro-Leighton was a left-wing activist, decades older than Kavanaugh and lives in Kentucky.
“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,” Grassley’s office wrote in a Friday referral to the Department of Justice.
“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.”
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?

Those who imbued her with automatic credibility share her shame in trying to destroy a decent man.
