Brett Kavanaugh made headline news last month after his Supreme Court nomination process turned into a circus. The prestigious judge was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.
The accusations called his character into question. For many people, especially Democrats, the allegations were enough to ask the Senate not to confirm Brett Kavanaugh. The nation became divided on this issue following the accusations. While everyone agreed that sexual misconduct is a terrible thing, opinions differed on how much credible evidence is needed to support such claims.
Now, Justice Kavanaugh is having his name cleared. A breaking news story is sweeping the nation after the woman who accused him of rape has admitted that she made up her entire story.
"Judy Munro-Leighton, according to Grassley’s office, 'alleged that Justice Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her ‘several times each’ in the backseat of a car.' Those accusations were made via a 'Jane Doe' letter provided to Sen. Kamala Harris, a California Democrat and committee member," according to Fox News.
Although Justice Kavanaugh has already been confirmed, investigators have kept working on the case. They investigated the claims against him and found the truth.
“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,” Grassley’s office wrote. "Under questioning by Committee investigators, Ms. Munro-Leighton admitted, contrary to her prior claims, that she had not been sexually assaulted by ... Kavanaugh and was not the author of the original 'Jane Doe’ letter,” Grassley’s office wrote in a Friday referral to the DOJ.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has now referred the woman to the Justice Department. If charged, she will be facing consequences for “materially false statements” and “obstruction.”
