President Trump is red hot right now and for good reason: One of the women who came forward with allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh completely made them up.
The president quickly took to social media on Saturday morning to express his frustrations, tweeting, “A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanaugh has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or FAKE!”
In the red-hot tweet concerning the fake allegation, Trump asked one question on nearly every conservative’s mind: What if Kavanaugh’s confirmation was derailed over this fake allegation?
Trump added: “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?”
The Washington Examiner reports Munro-Leighton now admits the accusation was fake and that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is referring the false testimony to FBI. Will she now be facing an FBI investigation of her own?
From the report:
Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, referred a woman who had claimed to have written an anonymous letter sent to Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., for allegedly false statements she made to the Senate Judiciary Committee during the investigation of allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings.
In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Grassley said that Munro-Leighton contacted the committee via email on Oct. 3 and said she was the author of the handwritten Sept. 19 letter signed by Jane Doe of Oceanside, Calif., which detailed an encounter in which Kavanaugh and a friend allegedly sexually assaulted the writer.
USA Today reports Munro-Leighton was frustrated over the nominee and the decision to move forward with the confirmation process despite previous allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault.
