Woman who accused Kavanaugh of rape admits she never met him

One Kavanaugh accuser was ‘left-wing activist’ who made false rape claim to ‘grab attention

The Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee completely exonerated Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of "numerous allegations" of misconduct, including an accusation of attempted rape, exposure, and instances of heavy drinking in a 414-page report issued Saturday.

Munro-Leighton's accusation was not part of the FBI investigation of Kavanaugh, which focused on Christine Blasey Ford 's claim that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when they were both high school students, nor was it widely reported. "On September 26, 2018, Committee staff questioned Judge Kavanaugh about these allegations in a transcribed interview conducted under penalty of felony", the letter continued.

President Donald Trump sought at a rally Saturday to mobilize his base over the contentious confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. He said Senate investigators were able to track her down and found she lived in Kentucky, not California, and was a Democrat.

The allegation made by a woman named Judy Munro-Leighton was not considered serious by Senate investigators and contrasts to the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, who were both interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Friday that the change is being made "out of an abundance of caution due to security concerns". Munro-Leighton said "I did that as a way to grab attention". "But when individuals intentionally mislead the Committee, they divert Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations and materially impede our work".

"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".

Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, Michael Avenatti and Julie Swetnick could not immediately be reached for comment.

"One of his accusers, false accusations, just came out a little while ago and said it was all a lie; that she never met now-Justice Kavanaugh", Trump said at a rally in Montana on November 3 before criticizing the state's incumbent senator.

"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", Grassley wrote. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. It's not clear at this time if these concerns had to do with the reporting of a specific threat - again, they say its just "an abundance of caution" - but it has been reported in the past the Kavanaugh and his family have received death threats. Committee investigators interviewed more than 40 witnesses, monitored social media and news reports and reviewed evidence provided by Kavanaugh and his accusers.

Kavanaugh was confirmed on 6 October by a 50-48 Senate vote following the most acrimonious and divisive confirmation process in a generation.
