Brett Kavanaugh to be denied inaugural walk down supreme court steps

Brett Kavanaugh to be denied inaugural walk down supreme court steps

On Oct 7 this year, the USA confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, as Republicans dismissed sexual assault accusations against the conservative judge and delivered a major victory to President Donald Trump.

In his speech, Trump referred to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley's Friday referral of a woman's previously unreported allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh for a Justice Department and FBI investigation - allegations that the woman later admitted were false, according to Grassley.

Trump's tweet seemingly refers to Judy Munro-Leighton, a woman who said she was the author of an anonymous letter alleging that Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her.

Postmarked Sept. 19 from San Diego, the handwritten letter was mailed to Sen.

"I was angry, and I sent it out", she told investigators.

The individual, identified as Judy Munro-Leighton, has revealed "her actions were part of a ploy to take down Kavanaugh's nomination".

In his second week of oral arguments as the "new guy" on the bench, Justice Brett Kavanaugh is keeping it simple: Asking short, textual questions in the public sessions, deferring to his colleagues and avoiding soliloquies or harsh rhetoric. It contained highly detailed and graphic sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, but the letter listed no return address, failed to provide any timeframe, and failed to provide a location apart from allegedly happening in a vehicle, investigators noted.




Munro-Leighton is the fourth person Grassley has referred to federal prosecutors for investigation over the Kavanaugh hearings.

Committee investigators began investigating Ms. Munro-Leighton's allegations. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) in late September signing it as Jane Doe and alleging Kavanaugh and a friend raped had her several times in the back seat of a vehicle, however failing to mention when and where. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee.

The most prominent of those to make claims against the then-Supreme Court nominee was California psychologist Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who said that back in the early 1980s when both she and Kavanaugh were teens in the Washington, D.C., area, the judge committed sexual misconduct against her. I saw it online.

But Grassley said that Swetnick's allegation, which was detailed in a sworn statement to the committee, contained obvious contradictions.

"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", Grassley said.

"Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal", Grassley added.

"Grassley requested that Munro-Leighton be investigated for making "materially false statements" and for obstruction of the committee's investigation into misconduct claims against Kavanaugh", The Hill reported.
