Democrats thought they had Brett Kavanaugh dead to rights.
Multiple women had stepped forward to claim he sexually assaulted them.
But now that the smoke has cleared, one Kavanaugh accuser is about to get some bad news from the FBI.
Senate Refers Brett Kavanaugh Accuser For Criminal Prosecution
The Senate Judiciary has referred a second Kavanaugh accuser for criminal prosecution.
Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray outlining what the Senate believes to be criminal acts by one Kavanaugh accuser.
Grassley wrote how she fabricated a story about Kavanaugh raping her in the back seat of a car.
The woman said she did it as a stunt to “get attention.”
On September 25, 2018, staffers for Senator Harris, a Committee member, referred an undated handwritten letter to Committee investigators that her California office had received signed under the alias “Jane Doe” from Oceanside, California.1 The letter contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh. The anonymous accuser alleged that Justice Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her “several times each” in the backseat of a car. In addition to being from an anonymous accuser, the letter listed no return address, failed to provide any timeframe, and failed to provide any location — beyond an automobile — in which these alleged incidents took place.
She further confessed to Committee investigators that (1) she “just wanted to get attention”; (2) “it was a tactic”; and (3) “that was just a ploy.” She told Committee investigators that she had called Congress multiple times during the Kavanaugh hearing process – including prior to the time Dr. Ford’s allegations surfaced – to oppose his nomination. Regarding the false sexual-assault allegation she made via her email to the Committee, she said: “I was angry, and I sent it out.” When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanaugh, she said: “Oh Lord, no.”
Senate Republicans Hold Democrats Accountable
Grassley previously referred Julie Swetnick and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, to the DOJ and FBI for criminal prosecution.
Avenatti submitted a sworn declaration where Swetnick claimed Kavanaugh would drug girls’ drinks at parties so other boys could gang rape them.
She also claimed Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were present at a party where she was also gang raped.
These were all lies.
Republicans Are Drawing A Line In The Sand
By prosecuting the individuals who admit to having made false allegations, the GOP is preventing a replay of the Kavanaugh fiasco.
Many Trump supporters cheered this news.
Republicans had warned that if the Democrats succeeded in taking Kavanaugh down, they would produce women to lie about sexual misconduct every time they were in a tough political fight.
But many Americans believe that Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez also lied as well.
And they think that they too should be held accountable for their alleged lies.
Will Attorney General Jeff Sessions follow through?
