The Senate Judiciary Committee found "no credible evidence" to support allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that were presented during his confirmation process. "It is illegal to obstruct Committee investigations", Grassley said.
"Jane Doe" brought up Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh's first dubious accuser. In her letter, she claimed that she felt a "Jane Doe" letter wouldn't get any attention so she made a decision to come forward with her name. 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. She says she did this to get attention and now I suspect she's going to get all she wanted and more.
Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Friday that the change is being made "out of an abundance of caution due to security concerns". Munro-Leighton said "I did that as a way to grab attention". Those incidents were also found to have no basis in fact, according to the report, and several have been referred to the Justice Department and the FBI for possible prosecution under federal law against providing "materially false statements" to the committee.

The supreme court steps were crowded with protesters for many days last month as the judge's confirmation remained on a knife edge, exacerbating deep political and cultural divisions, until he survived an 11th-hour investigation by the FBI. When committee staffers asked whether she had met Kavanaugh, she replied, "Oh Lord, no".

With a minute left in the round, Lewis was at Cormier's mercy. "How insane must the guy that won be for them to go, 'Hey, man". Lewis landed a nice combo 30 seconds into the second round and even tried a switch kick as he stepped up the aggression.
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. I am not Jane Doe. but I did read Jane Doe's letter.
The anonymous, undated letter Munro-Leighton referenced was received by Democratic Sen.
In a telephone conversation with Committee investigators on Thursday, Munro-Leighton confessed that her email claiming to be the "Jane Doe" who accused Kavanaugh of rape was made "to get attention" and was just a "tactic" and a "ploy". I don't know if this is a crime (Grassley seems to think so) but I hope she faces some serious consequences for this.
"Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal", Grassley stressed.
In addition, Grassley also requested an FBI investigation into accuser Julie Swetnick and her attorney, porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti, who also represents Stormy Daniels.
