Senate Judiciary refers yet another Kavanaugh accuser for criminal investigation

Senate Judiciary refers yet another Kavanaugh accuser for criminal investigation

Admits she falsely accused Kavanaugh of raping her, denies being the anonymous accuser she claimed to be

Late last month, the Senate Judiciary Committee referred Brett Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick and her lawyer, Democrat presidential hopeful Michael Avenatti, for criminal investigation.

On Friday, the Committee referred another Kavanaugh accuser, Judy Munro-Leighton, to the FBI for criminal investigation.

Munro-Leighton admitted to making a false allegation in which she claimed that Justice Kavanaugh and a friend had repeatedly raped her in the back of the car.

Munro-Leighton admitted to Senate Judiciary investigators that she saw a report about and/or read about an anonymous letter sent to Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) in which the writer claimed to have been raped by Kavanaugh and an unnamed friend of his. Munro-Leighton apparently decided to pretend that she was this Jane Doe as a “tactic” and “ploy” because she opposed Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the United States Supreme Court. She also admitted that she has never met Kavanaugh.

On October 1st, the Daily Wire, along with numerous other outlets, published the content of the anonymous letter along with Kavanaugh’s denials when asked about its contents.  The official Committee release of this September 26th interview can be read here.

Of the latest criminal referral, the Dayton Daily News reports:

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee has asked the Justice Department to further investigate a California woman, claiming that she admitted making a false accusation of rape against Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings, saying the woman confessed Thursday that she made the accusation to help derail Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.

“When questioned by Committee investigators she admitted it was false, a “ploy,” and a “tactic,” Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) wrote in a letter to the Attorney General and the FBI Director. “She was opposed to Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.”

In his letter, Grassley described how committee investigators had interviewed the woman, Ms. Judy Munro-Leighton, on Thursday of this week, and that she admitted her claims were false.

“Under questioning by Committee investigators, Ms. Munro-Leighton admitted, contrary to her prior claims, that she had not been sexually assaulted by Judge Kavanaugh,” Grassley wrote.

“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,”” the letter continued.

During its investigation, the Dayton Daily News continues, the Committee learned that “she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3) lives in neither the Washington DC area nor California, but in Kentucky.”

As detailed in the criminal referral, Munro-Leighton emailed Senate Judiciary staff on October 3rd (days before the confirmation vote) and identified herself as the “Jane Doe” in the anonymous letter sent to Harris.  Munro-Leighton now denies being this Jane Doe but admits to making the false claim that she was this person.

Law and Crime reports:

The letter, which claimed that Kavanaugh and friend raped her repeatedly in the “backseat of car,” was investigated, Grassley said, despite “being from an anonymous accuser,” with “no return address,” “timeframe,” or “location” of the alleged assaults.

Remarkably, the woman identified as Munro-Leighton reached out to Senate Judiciary staff by email, identifying herself as “Jane Doe from Oceanside CA.” This was on Oct. 3, 2018, three days before Kavanaugh was sworn in. The email contained a typed-up version of the anonymously written letter, repeated that Jane Doe was raped by Kavanaugh, but was “deathly afraid of revealing any information about myself or my family.”

. . . . This is what the typed up letter from Munro-Leighton’s email address said:

To all Republican Senators, 10/3/18

My name is Jane Doe, from Oceanside CA. I am sharing with you the story of the night that Brett Kavanaugh and his friend sexually assaulted and raped me in his car. Here is the letter that I sent to Sen. Kamala Harris on Sept. 19 with details of this vicious assault. The Senate Judiciary Comm had a phone interview on Sept. 26 with Kavanaugh to ask him about my letter.

I refuse to allow Donald J. Trump to use me or my story as an ugly chant at one of his Republican rallies. I know that Jane Doe will get no media attention, but I am deathly afraid of revealing any information about myself or my family.

I watched in horror as Trump vilified Dr. Blasey-Ford. I will not allow this abuse to be directed toward me.

Dear, Senator Grassley, et al.

The current situation regarding the accusations made by Dr. Ford against Brett Kavanaugh have prompted me to write you today. I have moved on with my life since he forced himself on me as well. The times were so different, and I didn’t expect to be taken seriously, embarrass my family, be believed at all. I was at a party with a friend. I had been drinking. She left with another boy, leaving me to find my own way home. Kavanaugh and a friend offered me a ride home. I don’t know the other boy’s name. I was in his car to go home. His friend was behind me in the backseat. Kavanaugh kissed me forcefully.

I told him I only wanted a ride home. Kavanaugh continued to grope me over my clothes, forcing his kisses on me and putting his hand under my sweater. ‘No,’ I yelled at him. The boy in the backseat reached around, putting his hand over my mouth and holding my arm to keep me in the car. I screamed into his hand. Kavanaugh continued his forcing himself on me. He pulled up my sweater and bra exposing my breasts, and reached into my panties, inserting his fingers into my vagina. My screams were silenced by the boy in the backseat covering my mouth and groping me as well. Kavanaugh slapped me and told me to be quiet and forced me to perform oral sex on him. He climaxed in my mouth. They forced me to go into the backseat and took turns raping me several times each.

They dropped me off two blocks from my home. ‘No one will believe if you tell. Be a good girl,’ he told me. Watching what has happened to Anita Hill and Dr. Ford has me petrified to come forward in person or even provide my name. A group of white men, powerful senators who won’t believe me, will come after me. Like Dr. Ford, I’m a teacher, I have an education, a family, a child, a home. I have credibility. Just because something happens a long time ago, because a rape victim doesn’t want to personally come forward, does not mean something can’t be true.

Jane Doe, Oceanside, California.

. . . .  It is alleged that Munro-Leighton denied being “Jane Doe.”

“No, no, no. I did that as a way to grab attention. I am not Jane Doe, but I did read Jane Doe’s letter. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee,” she allegedly admitted. “I saw it online. It was news.” Grassley claimed that the woman called this a “tactic” and a “ploy” to “get attention.”

As for the email she sent? “I was angry, and I sent it out,” she apparently said. Munro-Leighton allegedly admitted that she never met Kavanaugh, saying, “Oh Lord, no.”

Grassley closes the Committee’s criminal referral of Munro-Leighton with the following:

As I have repeatedly stated, Committee investigations in support of the judicial nomination process are an essential part of the Committee’s constitutional role. The Committee is grateful to citizens who come forward with relevant information in good faith, even if they are not one hundred percent sure about what they know. But 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. It is illegal to make materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements to Congressional investigators. It is illegal to obstruct Committee investigations.

I believe women…. lie.

(assune polite and civil disagreement that will be deleted after insulting me as a delusional nutjob)

Just saving myself the time and energy. Carry on.

    Funny how all your “deleted” posts are . . . um, not deleted.

    Even when I did delete them, it was because you spammed the exact same post over numerous threads; I left it up on one (one is sufficient, Fen, particularly if you want not to be seen as a nutjob. Only nutjobs feel their screeds are so important that they must appear on every thread, “in every mailbox and on every consciousness”).

    Keep talking, though, because the more you do, the more delusional and nutty you sound. Let’s review: you’ve stated that your posts are removed, and yet . . . they’re still here! Even the posts that were removed are still here (I personally removed the multiple copies because they were copy and pastes of the same exact thing over numerous threads) are still here, just one, though. No one gets to spam the same crap over numerous threads (well, okay, the prof could, but no one else here can do that, not me, not Kemberlee, not . . . way down the list, you).

    Attack me all you want, Fen. You are wrong and will always be wrong, and I owe you nothing. You are right about my owing apologies, I do. I get all het up and caught up in rhetoric (words over thought or feeling) and emotion and all that human stuff, and I owe both Rags and Milhouse apologies (they know why). You? Hmph. No way, I didn’t do anything wrong, and your whittle snowflake stompy whinging meltdowns just make me think less of you. I can’t even express my disdain for your crazy ex-girlfriend stalker crap; let’s just say that I’m not impressed. I’m a conservative woman; whiny little pajama boys make me want to puke.

      Why would I bother taking responding to your points? You’ll just continue to abuse your moderation authority to censor me.

      Leave me alone until you give the apology I outlined.

      And now its THREE pancakes.

      I always win, one way or the other.

      You are just escalating into a brick wall.

        Leave you alone? Dude, that’s all I want, but you keep stalking me like a crybaby, schizo ex-girlfriend pajama boy whinging on about your hurt and feewings. In my world, you ceased to exist when you revealed yourself to be a crazy person. Sadly, in your world, I am the be all and end all, your totemic foci. Here’s what will never ever happen: I will not apologize, even obliquely. Here’s why: in this instance, I did nothing wrong. Period.

        I don’t care if what you think I did was offensive or that your snowflake feewings were hurt, that’s crazy; once I explained what I was thinking and why I said what I did, a normal person would accept it and move on.

        Just to recap for our friends who don’t know: we were all happy happy joy joy that Kavanaugh had just been confirmed. We were giddy and happy and joyous. A couple of our good friends were skeptical, to one of whom I replied that we can be joyous today and that tomorrow we can fret. Note the time stamp because it becomes relevant a mere ten minutes later.

        This is me that night: Yay! Kavanaugh is a Supreme! Wweeeee!! The happy goodness and delicious victory!

        So, in that same celebratory thread, you pop up with your typical black cloud, buzz kill, destroy all fun and joy attitude. Happiness apparently offends you on some deep level.

        Me, all happy and light and joyous (and thus, I guess deeply offensive to you, Precious), I tried to explain what joy in that moment felt like. You were having none of it, humorless git that you are, so you hopped up on your oh-so-serious soapbox and chanted out something about tending the walls.

        For context and as a reminder, a mere 10 minutes earlier, I’d had a similar conversation with a different–and in that case, perfectly mentally stable and lovely–LI reader, in which I urged her to be free and happy and celebratory for at least that evening. One evening. That’s it. A few hours of happiness and joy. She loved the idea.

        Imagine my surprise, then, when I posit the exact same idea to you, couched in your own melodramatic swooning-on-the-nearest-fainting-couch Victorian woman terms, and you freak out. Who would read what you wrote and take it seriously? It was crazy town; in my light-hearted happy mood, I thought you were being ironic and funny and responded in what I thought was in kind. OF course now I have to completely reassess my whole take on your sense of humor . . . since you clearly don’t have one.

        After this nothingburger moment, even after I tried to explain what I was thinking and my mood and how I’d just had the same conversation with another LI commenter, you went crazy stalker nutso. Seriously. You’ve been over-the-top nutso for almost a MONTH. That’s not normal.

        I have explained my take on the exchange, and it’s there for everyone to see, but you . . . . just won’t let go. You’re demanding a full LI post apology (my God! Do you even hear yourself?! That’s beyond nuts) and who knows what other craziness (I’ve lost track, and frankly don’t care because you have lost everything with me . . . all good will, all respect, everything. Who acts like this? I mean, really? It’s crazy town, and I’m having none of it.).

        I’m a happy happy girl. Nothing I said was intended to be in the least insulting, as I’ve repeatedly told you. But your whittle feewings are hurt, so you stalk me, insult and attack me. Relentlessly. For almost a month. Not cool, not okay.

        Let me summarize for you: you are out of line, and I owe you nothing.

        You are delusional. What have you posted that has been “censored”? Seriously, I’m asking. You spammed the same exact post over multiple threads and all BUT ONE were removed. You had your say, but you don’t get to manipulate these pages or spam your crazy across numerous threads. Once, as I’ve noted, was enough, and one of the posts was retained.

        What is your complaint? That you can’t post the same exact post over numerous threads? Cue the world’s tiniest violin . . . oh, wait, even the world’s tiniest violin doesn’t give a crap.

        You are acting like a total ass, Fen. You know damn well you are not being “censored,” and you are crybaby stalking me for some unknown reason. Certainly not for the reason you state since I’ve explained that repeatedly and you’ve rejected my explanation, so what’s your agenda?

        Whatever it is, this is the wrong forum for it. LI readers are not idiots, and they’ll be quick to pick up on the fact that your crazy accusations that I’m “censoring” you can’t possibly be true since your patently false accusations are evidenced in your own freaking endless (and increasingly tiresome) comments about how you’re being “censored” . . . which have not been “censored.”

        “Oooh, I’m so censored; if you don’t believe me, see my zillion posts whining about how I’ve been censored! They’re all still there! Uncensored.”



      And I didn’t read past your first line. You lost that courtesy when you chose to insult me as a nutjob instead of clearing up what you claim was a misunderstanding.

      Wasted your time that would have been better spent posting a sincere apology with a pic of 3 pancakes on your head.

      Silly girl.

Ironically, it is very unlikely that these referrals would have happened had NeverTrump kook Jeff Flake not traded his vote for another week of FBI investigations. As a result, Grassley now has a clear path for charging Avenatti and eventually maybe even Feinstein and others who conspired to perpetuate this scandalous and treasonous hoax.

It appears that others are also adept at timing events around the election. I am now waiting for the “these charges are not legitimate because they are being made by white men” accusations to appear. And this kiddies, is what happens when a rubber band snaps back after being pulled by people who are unable to see future unintended consequences.

I still think that Ford needs to be investigated for the manner in which she conducted things, the lawyers involved, her friend the Former FBI agent, Feinstein, Schumer as well as his fingerprints are on the edges of this, given all the connections between him and the FBI agent.

Schumer stated his goals clearly that he would use any means to stop Kavanaugh, and if it is any means, that also can mean manufacturing things and manipulating the timing. He knows full well that so many women out there will come forward when a high profile person is accused like Kavanaugh was. It happened with Moore, and despite the numerous falsehoods told in the original tales, including his being banned from the mall, of which personnel who worked there at the time said didn’t happen, and there is no record of it, others debasing themselves for the Party of National Socialists will come forward, and it’s the thousands cut type death.

I doubted Ford’s story, and seeing her testimony, believe even less. I believe she was a weapon the left was going to use against either Gorsuch or Kavanaugh, whichever one Schumer decided would benefit them the most. It is likely why she didn’t nail down the year it was supposed to have happened, so it could be fudged for either one of them. Me Too was given traction by the left for the purpose of bringing down Trump. Despite the claims it was some celebrity women who pushed it, it was the media on orders from the DNC to move it forward.

They knew it would mean a few of theirs would have to fall, but I doubt they thought it would gain traction like it did. Forcing Stewart Smiley to resign was two fold, knock out Moore and try to shame Trump into resigning.

This latest to be referred to being investigated sounds like she admitted it, then after talking to a lawyer and hearing the consequences she might face, changed her story to something other than what she first claimed. Sounds like she took out Ford’s playbook of fungible facts.

    The Ford situation is more complicated. She hasn’t admitted to anything yet. I suspect that the DOJ or FBI may be setting up the dominoes by leaning on her to file charges against her attorneys rather than admit to perjury. That could set things up for DOJ charges against the attorneys which would then set up charges against Feinstein (who recommended those attorneys) and maybe other co-conspirators (Schumer?).

On Friday, the Committee referred another Kavanaugh accuser, Judy Munro-Leighton, to the FBI for criminal investigation.

And we won’t see anything actually happen.

We’re witnessing a collapse of American law. Action on this is vital.

The cancer of the “believe the woman” fantasy must be crushed, quickly and thoroughly. If any woman can fabricate any bullshit story about any man, have this story taken seriously by an institution which can fine, incarcerate, or ruin its victim, and suffer no consequences—or, worse, make a fortune via GoFundMe or any other payoff scheme—then the crisis should be obvious. Somebody at Justice must start taking this stuff seriously. We don’t have to look for conspiracies or determine who’s “behind it all”—we have to make it very unattractive to be the direct agent of these fabrications. That means legal punishment for the fake accuser, and no namby-pamby slaps on their delicate little wrists, either.

This is not some vague future problem like demographic collapse or imposition of Sharia from sea to shining sea, this is a crisis which can be addressed now. And it must be.

    This has been taking place in family / divorce court for years.

    The false accusation is a ‘standard’ static against men. The woman gets custody of the children and ALL the mans pay, assets and property.

    It called ‘divorce rape’ for a reason.

      Sad part about all of this is the only ones who actually get anything out of proceedings are the lawyers. The couple who filed are the real losers

      It has indeed. The cancer is not new. But it’s metastasizing in front of our eyes.

        Part of me has always thought that the push behind gay marriage was from lawyers trying to introduce another 10% of the population into the victim pool. IIRC, the only argument for it that made sense to me was so that you could see a loved one in the hospital if it was “family only.” It reminds me of the old saying about Indian men just hunting all day and the women doing the work, a system which the white men then screwed up completely. So you have two same-sex people in a relationship with no legal contracts; sounds perfect to me. I wonder how many times “Yes, I want to marry you but the law won’t allow it” was said. Then the law changed. I wonder how many of those relationships went poof once the cards were laid down. OTOH, knowing that Ellen and Rosie will eventually give away 90% of their wealth makes me smile. Just another unintended consequence that libtards never see coming.

      Ragspierre in reply to assemblerhead. | November 3, 2018 at 3:33 pm

      That’s TOTAL bullshit!

      Texas has a very strong felony provision for making any kind of false allegation in a family law matter, and those go both ways.

      There are but a very few situations where one spouse or another gets more than a 1/2 of community property, essentially all based on the bad conduct (proven in court) of one spouse or another, especially defrauding the marital estate.

        Any examples of any Texas babe suffering consequences for making false allegations?

          Ragspierre in reply to MarkS. | November 3, 2018 at 6:09 pm

          Sure. Both sexes. Look them up.

          From my personal practice, I have seen it work out badly when a female spouse lies about her husband attacking her. In this case, Husband was smart enough to turn on his phone and record when Wife was screaming at him threatening him with a knife. Husband flees the house, comes to me to get a Protective Order and start the Divorce process (he’s out of the house for about a week before this gets heard by a Judge).

          Wife then (two days after threatening husband ON VIDEO with the knife) beats herself with a coat-hanger, calls Military Police and tries to blame husband. Husband has an AIR-TIGHT alibi for where he is during that period, and MPs/CID can do basic math on how bruises develop, so MPs/CID start looking deeper into wife’s injuries. CID does the math (literally) and works out the geometry of the hanger-strikes to her abdomen and legs, and the angles ONLY work if Wife was holding the hanger herself (in her right hand, and is holding her legs apart to strike herself).

          I manage to get the CID investigator subpoenaed and required by the Judge to appear at final trial over the Military’s objection (it CAN be done, it’s just UTTERLY a pain in the ass). Wife gets up on the stand and testifies about being beaten with the hanger and admits the pictures of her injuries allegedly at my client’s hand. I call CID investigator, who due to his training and experience is also an expert in injury-trauma between parties to an assault. He UTTERLY destroys her testimony (and opposing counsel put his head in his hands).

          My client (Husband) got Conservatorship (custody) of the children, child support from (ex-) wife, all the community property of the marriage, an unequal distribution of the military retirement earned during the marriage, right to make basically ALL the decisions for the children (but was geographically restricted to a particular County in Texas), and effectively an indemnity from her that if she makes any screwy claims against him being required to pay any of her bills from the marriage, that he gets an immediate money-judgment from the Judge just for showing up with the receipt that he had to pay.

          I’ll admit, it’s rare, but sometimes when parties lie they get BADLY burned.

Lock her up.

These referrals are most likely already in the round file at the FBI.

Look, let’s concede that there are sick, weird people in both (all?) sexes. There are lying “victims” in every demographic, and there are predatory individuals in every demographic.

We have a pretty well-developed system for separating the sheep from the goats.

What we have to do is maintain it against interest groups WHEREVER they sit on the bell-curve.

    One thing that hangs me up on this is that she claimed to be this anonymous “Jane Doe”–not an actual rape victim–and in her letter presents herself as this fictional character (it can be argued, she’s speaking as this “Jane Doe” even in the introductory part of her email). So “Jane Doe” is still at large, and this woman didn’t say she had personally been assaulted by Kavanaugh and his friend but that she was speaking for this Jane Doe person. It’s so muddied that my non-legally-trained mind reels. Did SHE accuse Kavanaugh of rape or did she do so in the character of another person for the sake of political gain? Does that even matter? I get hung up on things that simply don’t matter all the time, so maybe this is that? Obviously this is all moot if she is the original Jane Doe, but . . . is she? And does it matter either way? This whole thing is so weird. I’m Jane Doe and Kavanaugh raped me, but I just said I was Jane Doe and have never even met Kavanaugh. Weird.

      Geologist in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | November 3, 2018 at 4:54 pm

      According to the story, Munro-Leighton stated in her letter “My name is Jane Doe, from Oceanside CA. I am sharing with you the story of the night that Brett Kavanaugh and his friend sexually assaulted and raped me in his car.” Then she went on to re-present the letter from Jane Doe.

      Munro-Leighton affirmatively stated that Brett Kavanaugh and his friend raped her. Not that they raped the Jane Doe who wrote the first letter. But that they “raped me.”

        See, I had that point in my original post, but then I reread the email, and she’s claiming to be this Jane Doe claiming to have been raped (a step, only rhetorically perhaps, removed from claiming to have been raped herself?). Ugh. Either way, she’s horrific and horrible in my book.

      She herself may be confused but her crimes are pretty straight-forward from her own mouth. She first presented false charges of rape then changed her story from being the victim then claiming that she was actually only reading the anonymous victim’s letter. She admits lying about that as well as several other things (like where she lives e.g.) She also offered that her motives for lying were purely political(shock value, getting attention).

      The lawyers can obfuscate all they want about her bizarre and confused behavior but there is no getting around it, she admits to misleading a Congressional committee fact-finding investigation for purely political purposes. I expect her to be convicted and probably sentenced to a mental institution (at least).

        Sounds good to me, Phil! I think she was falsely portraying herself as a rape victim and that she did so deliberately (she admits as much when she claims it was a “tactic” and “strategy”). I wonder who was behind that, too. Did some cray old leftist lady suddenly decide to thrust herself into the #MeToo Kavanaugh debate? Or was she sponsored in some way? I’d believe either scenario.

          Avenatti. I believe he has so incriminated himself that it’s only a matter of time before he gets charged. Having torpedoed the hearings far beyond the damage done by Ford, he has taken the blame from all sides for Kavanaugh’s confirmation. That MUST be the reason he is running for prez, political immunity. Just like Hillary. What a mess 2020 is shaping up to be for the Dems. Commies as far as the eye can see and others running to escape prosecution.

          I can’t wait for Wednesday. I expect a nervous breakdown of historic proportions by the Dems when they lose at least 5 Senate seats and fail to make a dent in the House. Should be epic. Then we can start sending people to prison.

What kind of legal jeopardy is she in? It’s hard to tell from the articles I have read.

Great. Another referral for Sessionzzzzzzz to throw in the trash when he wakes up from his nap.

Wake me up when a SINGLE person is actually indicted.

Subotai Bahadur | November 4, 2018 at 1:10 am

Sessions will not indict as long as he is actually the UniParty’s AG. The FBI will not investigate, because they actually work only for the Democrats and those farther Left. Neither cares a whit for the law or Constitution.

It seems to me somehow perverse that people who made utterly unbelievable allegations, which the committee really didn’t have to waste time investigating, and which by their very ridiculousness didn’t harm Kavanaugh, and then admitted what they’d done almost instantly on being questioned, are being charged, while those who made serious allegations which took serious investigation and could have actually harmed Kavanaugh, ad who to this day do not admit their offense, go free.

The Friendly Grizzly | November 4, 2018 at 3:54 pm

Loco Sessions.
