A woman who accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault admitted to congressional investigators she made up her claims to “get attention.”

According to a letter sent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday afternoon, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley referred Judy Munro-Leighton for criminal prosecution and revealed her actions were part of a ploy to take down Kavanaugh’s nomination.

From the letter, bolding is mine:

Given her relatively unique name, Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3) lives in neither the Washington DC area nor California, but in Kentucky.

On November 1, 2018, Committee investigators connected with Ms. Munro-Leighton by phone and spoke with her about the sexual-assault allegations against Judge Kavanaugh she had made to the Committee.

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. 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.

She further confessed to Committee investigators that (1) she “just wanted to get attention”; (2) “it was a tactic”; and (3) “that was just a ploy.” She told Committee investigators that she had called Congress multiple times during the Kavanaugh hearing process – including prior to the time Dr. Ford’s allegations surfaced – to oppose his nomination.

Regarding the false sexual-assault allegation she made via her email to the Committee, she said: “I was angry, and I sent it out.” When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanaugh, she said: “Oh Lord, no.”

Grassley has also referred Julie Swetnik, Michael Avanetti and an unnamed man for criminal prosecution after making false claims to congressional investigators.

“The Committee is grateful to citizens who come forward with relevant information in good faith, even if they are not one hundred percent sure about what they know…But 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 wrote.

“It is illegal to make materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements to Congressional investigators. It is illegal to obstruct Committee investigations.”

    And they say women don’t lie. Of course they do. Lying is across the board of all cultures and genders as is stealing, corruption, sexual assault etc. But until this article i have not even heard of the woman talked about here…..I think we should divide the country and I will live in the Red states..I don’t really mean this…maybe Lincoln should not have saved the Union but then again we had to get rid of the barbaric immoral practice of slavery…I am an ex Dem…and so disgusted with the racism and power hungry greedy non caring hypocritical Dems….

    I think Ford and her lawyers need to be investigated. I am not sure she wasn’t lying. I know she is a leftist activist. And I recognize the old trick of “not remembering” so a person can’t be charged with perjury. Out of the whole story, all she could remember was Kavanaugh sexually molested her. Sorry, in my book that dog don’t hunt. Hillary always used the trick of not remembering or not recalling. So, as I see it, old tricks, different person.

      I so agree with Rebecca. The entire sexual assault claim, stinks to high heaven. Ford isn’t wrapped too tight in my personal opinion. This “me too” thing can bring out the worst in some women.

      I think Ford lied too and was used to bad by Feinstein and Schumer and his gang. Im giving her the benefit of the doubt that she might really feel it was him when it wasnt. These women need to go to jail but since dems prob wont

    The woman who lied about having been sexually molested by Judge Kavenaugh should have her tongue cut out.

    That woman should be prosecuted for LYING to the world about something that never happened! Maybe if people were punished for their lies, deception and ruinous ways, most people would think twice about going through with such disdain.
    Either she has no idea that her actions have RUINED parts of Judge Kavanaugh’s life FOREVER, let alone his family members and any trust people have in the judicial system or she simply just doesn’t care! That’s a Democrat for ya!
    Self-serving, egotistical, POS’s!

    This is no surprise to me.
    I believe they all lied.
    I had four sisters, a mother and an ex wife and they all lied the most horrible manipulative lies and never had remorse or guilt.
    I have also had dozens of girlfriends over the decades and I knew when they where lying and I did’t let on that I knew they are lying.
    Never argue with a woman.
    Just leave her without warning or she will be vindictive and try to trap you into trouble and likely a permanent domestic violence charge.
    Some men are just fools.
    (Yes, I do have a full time and wonderful girlfriend now)

    I think all that lies under oath should spend jail time. No one takes it serious since the politicians got away with it. If it was one of the deplorable. We would be counted and accused. Start showing some action to the liners on oath and then some one may take this country at their word. We are a joke.

    This was all a scheme by the communists aka democrats paid for by george soros to keep Judge Kavanaugh from being confirmed. All of these people and everyone connected to them need to go to prison for the rest of their lives.

    I’ve said over and over George Soros is the biggest terrorist we have seen in this country in sometime Barack Obama second Hillary Clinton third. These are all worst in bin Laden ever dreamed of being and we set our seals in risking their lives to kill the sky when we have as the constitution put it enemies what are domestic, and no no bounce to the Revo, which includes Murder! You can bet your bottom dollar they have more dead people and illegal voting this time then ever before, and what Trump should do when these infractions are called up his demand all the voting records from the states and the registries, and of the states try to deny it being as this was a national election and affects the country, and they refused to give up that information then those votes in that state should be no envoy every last one of them this is how you correct a situation like this with corruption that is so rampant in this country, by the communist party who if even killed children In schools trying to get the guns taken away from the American people.

    All of these women, including Ford should be imprisoned for lying. Ford was an obvious liar. I don’t find any of this amusing for trying to destroy a decent man.

    Sounds like these are people really asking for an FBI perjury trap. But all Mueller’s people can think of is to look for someone who can be charged who might have a slight connection to the President. Seems like every “witness” who claims to have seen or been in a room when Brett Kavanaugh, decades ago, is suppose to have assaulted women, names witnesses who say they were not there.

    If an ordinary citizen lied to a jury and/or judge, we would be tried and convicted within a week. I hope this woman and the others if it turns out they lied also, are tried in a court of law. Isn’t this the way the system should work for everybody (VIP’s and ordinary everyday citizens)?

    I predict one more SC justice will either die or resign and Trump will get one more conservative in. I think we will gain a couple more seats in Congress – I think it will be close though as the machines are changing votes. Pay attention when you vote.

There isn’t anybody in d.c. with a set of testicles to hurt some asshat’s feeling for pulling nothing but a terrible and very hurtful stunt for the sake of keeping their freaking position. GROW UP, GROW A SET, AND MOVE THE HELL FORWARD and stop with all the hate and deceitfulness against OUR COUNTRY. WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA.

    “Guess who’s perpetuating all these kinds of actions?” Mazie Hirono said, referencing the alleged assault. “It’s the men in this country. And I just want to say to the men in this country, just shut up and step up. Do the right thing, for a change.” I hope this sinks the #MeToo movement and silences all the chanters of “We believe survivors.” This woman just proved that women are quite willing to ruin someone’s life simply for attention or because she was angry. Well, Mazie, time to step up and step down from your leadership role. Do the right thing for a change.

    I Firmly believe Blasey Ford’s Testimony was a complete setup to take Kavanaugh down & didn’t care about ruining this good man’s reputation, She was a Liar from start to finish & her scummy Lawyers & the Democrats plus the fake news media had no conscience whatsoever, shame on all of them for your despicable Lies & Fake news reporting, I am so Sorry that the Kavanaugh Family had to endure such corruptness, Shameful.

    I read the entire article about the false claim. It went to great length to say and emphasize that the claim was made up and that it was illegal to do such a thing. However it stopped short of explaining just what charges if any were placed on this women. Surely there was and if not there damn well should have been. Or just maybe this whole damn investigation story was made up by the FBI. I guess we will never really know the truth will we?

    I wondered what the penalty was for lying under oath about a Federal Judge. I’m still waiting for an answer.
    Dr Ford got all the attention she wanted plus almost a million dollars in a GoFundMe account. The account was set up to protect HER, she could never withdraw the money, only her husband. Knowing full well there was a chance this entire lie might be exposed the money would still be safe.
    Who says crime don’t pay ?

    Women lie all the time or else there would not be so many men incarcerated and then released because they either admitted it or DNA testing. How many men were locked up for years and years before DNA testing? Every woman whom falsely accuses someone of sexual assault should be made to pay back the court system, the accused lawyer’s fees and should do prison time. There should be consequences for their cowardly and deceitful actions.

    There’s a million reasons for Blasey-Ford not to tell-all and it comes from her Go-Fund-Me account. That alone proves about her to be a greedy, lying sack of dodo; that will, unfortunately, ever tell the truth including the risk of charges being filed against her.

    Plus, a confession would throw Feinstein and the rest of the Democratic gangsters under the bus and an unsafe place unless getting into the witness protection program…just saying.

    Isaiah 5:20 – Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

    2Peter 3:3 – Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.

    Provers 6:16-19 – There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil, A false witness who utters lies, And one who spreads strife among brothers.

    Proverbs 6:12-15 – A worthless person, a wicked man, Is the one who walks with a perverse mouth, Who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet, Who points with his fingers; Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil, Who spreads strife.
    Therefore his calamity will come suddenly; Instantly he will be broken and there will be no healing.

    2 Timothy 3:1-5 …..’This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.’

    If we are not in the end times – I dont know what the end times is. Repent – the time is come – hirry before its too late.

    I’m wondering ( but I think we all know the answer) why the Main Stream Media hasn’t been able to find the time to pass this story to the American public. Could it possibly be a case of “Well it doesn’t help our anti-Trump agenda” or “we wouldn’t want to write a negative article about the Democrat manufactured scandal this close to the November 6th elections and possibly damage Democrat chances”?

  37. Pat

    Prosecute them all and give them long prison sentences, along with hefty fines! Others who would do the “deeds” they have done will be dissuaded from doing so if they know what will happen to them. I’m heartily sick of all of these accusations that are without merit! Oh, and Ford and her attorneys should be among those prosecuted!
