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". Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said Judy Munro-Leighton accused Kavanaugh and a friend of raping her "several times each" in the backseat of a auto - but investigators later found out she was a "left-wing activist" who is "decades older than Kavanaugh". Grassley said she later recanted authorship and admitted to not knowing Kavanaugh under questioning from the committee.
Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee during the third day of his confirmation hearing to serve as Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court at the Capitol in Washington on September 6, 2018.
President Donald Trump, who vowed in a speech at a Montana rally in October that the upcoming midterm elections would be the election of "Kavanaugh [and] the caravan" appeared to be using the potential FBI investigation as a means of inflaming his base.

It's also probably not a good day for the offensive line when its starting quarterback is forced out of the game due to injury. Penn State enters a brutal schedule stretch that includes Iowa, Michigan and Wisconsin over the next three weeks.
"I am Jane Doe from Oceanside CA - Kavanaugh raped me", Ms. Munro-Leighton wrote in an October 3 email claiming to have been a victim of the judge.
"As part of that process, the Committee has investigated various allegations made against Judge Kavanaugh". "Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal". Kamala Harris, D-Calif., accusing Brett Kavanaugh of raping her now admits she engaged in a "ploy" against the then-Supreme Court nominee. "The letter contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh". "It is illegal to obstruct Committee investigations".
"I was angry and I sent it out", she reportedly said. It claimed that Kavanaugh and another man had raped her repeatedly in the back seat of a vehicle after offering her a ride home. She says she did this to get attention and now I suspect she's going to get all she wanted and more.
His letter also noted, "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". "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". Kavanaugh's nomination set off a battle between Republicans, most of whom defended the judge, and Democrats, who pushed for a large-scale investigation into the women's allegations.
