Brett Kavanaugh to be denied inaugural walk down supreme court steps

  • WASHINGTON DC- JUNE 15 Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch talks with Chief Justice John Roberts on the steps of the Supreme Court following his official investiture at the Supreme Court

President Trump, who has made Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation process a rallying cry for supporters on the campaign trail, slammed a woman for making up an accusation against Kavanaugh during his investigation.

"A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanough [sic] has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or FAKE!" further asking what could have been done if her "disgusting false statements" had effectively prevented him from claiming the supreme judicial role.

Friday on MSNBC's "All In", feminist and liberal activist Gloria Steinem said the one thing worse than having Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court was being married to him. What about the others?

Senator Grassley reports that no third-party witnesses or other evidence substantiated any of the claims: "Following the separate and extensive investigations by both the Committee and the FBI, there was no evidence to substantiate any of the claims of sexual assault made against Justice Kavanaugh". Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) forwarded a letter from a "Jane Doe" to Committee investigators, claiming that Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her "several times each" in the "backseat of a vehicle".

On Oct. 3, three days before Kavanaugh was sworn in, Munro-Leighton sent the Senate Judiciary staff an e-mail that claimed she was the Jane Doe from the letter sent to Harris.

Democrats and lawyers for some of Kavanaugh's accusers have said committee Republicans inappropriately limited the investigation's scope.

The report concluded: "Committee investigators found no verifiable evidence that supported Dr. Ford's allegations against Justice Kavanaugh". Kavanaugh unequivocally denied all the claims and accusations. The Committee's investigation has involved communicating with numerous individuals claiming to have relevant information.

November 1: The Committee attempted to contact Munro-Leighton for most of October, and finally made contact almost a month after Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court.

"Jane Doe will get no media attention", Munro-Leighton wrote in an email, according to Grassley's office. Munro-Leighton said "I did that as a way to grab attention".

In September, President Trump ordered a limited Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into allegations by Ford and accuser Deborah Ramirez. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee ... She said in her testimony that she was "100 percent" certain she was assaulted by Kavanaugh.

Grassley said said that when "individuals intentionally mislead the Committee, they divert Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations and materially impede our work". Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal.

Grassley recently referred Michael Avenatti and Julie Swetnick to the Justice Department alleging they made "materially false" statements to the committee during their investigation.
