Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has referred another person to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for making false accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh - and this woman admitted she has never met Kavanaugh and that she just made the wild claim to "grab attention".
Munro-Leighton wrote that she was "sharing with you the story of the night that Brett Kavanaugh and his friend sexually assaulted and raped me in his car" and referred to "the letter that I sent to Sen". Swetnick also made several contradictory statements about her claims during television interviews and refused to speak with committee investigators, the letter said. Trump added, referring to the other women who accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

In addition, Grassley also requested an FBI investigation into accuser Julie Swetnick and her attorney, porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti, who also represents Stormy Daniels.
The report concluded: "Committee investigators found no verifiable evidence that supported Dr. Ford's allegations against Justice Kavanaugh". "When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanaugh, she said: 'Oh Lord, no'". "I am not Jane Doe".More news: Man City's De Bruyne facing 6 weeks out with new knee injury
In order to investigate her sexual-assault claims, Committee investigators first attempted to reach her by phone on October 3, 2018, but were unsuccessful.
"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", Mr. Grassley wrote.
"I was angry and I sent it out", she reportedly said.
"The Committee is grateful to citizens who come forward with relevant information in good faith - even if they are not 100-percent sure about what they know", Grassley continued. "Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal". "It is illegal to make materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements to Congressional investigators". 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. "Among accusers who came forth during the hearings is 43-year-old Deborah Ramirez, who - according to The New Yorker - alleges that Kavanaugh [exposed himself to her] during a party".
Throughout the process, Kavanaugh - a married father of two daughters and a highly respected judge on the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit - vehemently denied all such accusations and maintained his innocence.
