She said she'd never met Kavanaugh, but was against his nomination.

The accusation from the anonymous letter was one of many that were leveled against Kavanaugh, who would eventually replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

President Donald Trump is aware that the issue inspires voters and regularly mentions Kavanaugh during his rallies for GOP candidates. Her full comments to investigators were not made available and efforts by USA TODAY to reach Munro-Leighton were unsuccessful. The letter included a story about Kavanaugh and another male groping, sexually assaulting and ultimately raping a woman in a vehicle after a party.

Late on Friday, Sen. Grassley penned a letter referring the matter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and urging them to bring charges against Monro-Leighton.

The upcoming Brett Kavanaugh investiture ceremony, the customary recognition of his place on the U.S. Supreme Court, is going to break tradition "due to security concerns", the Supreme Court has announced. "She told Committee investigators that she had called Congress multiple times during the Kavanaugh hearing process - including prior to the time Dr. Ford's allegation surfaced - to oppose his nomination".

Trump did not draw a distinction between the Grassley referral of a woman who had received little attention and the allegations of Ford and other women who made claims to the Senate Judiciary Committee. How about some more R29 goodness, right here? I am writing to refer Ms.

Sen. Chuck Grassley wrote in a letter to the Justice Department that Sen.

The official also refuted reports the family was told it must return to Saudi Arabia because the girls had applied for asylum. The Saudi embassy in Washington said yesterday that it was extending its "support and aid in this trying time" to the family.

The president also took to Twitter, where he wrote: "A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanaugh has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or FAKE!"

A number of things that did not match up with Munro-Leighton's testimony against Kavanaugh were pointed out in Grassley's letter.

Investigators also found evidence of potential witness tampering and violations of Senate rules. "On September 26, 2018, Committee staff questioned Judge Kavanaugh about these allegations in a transcribed interview conducted under penalty of felony", the letter continued. He denied the claims.

He said that nothing of the kind ever happened. "But when individuals intentionally mislead the Committee, they divert Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations and materially impede our work".

"I am Jane Doe from Oceanside CA - Kavanaugh raped me", Ms. Munro-Leighton wrote in an October 3 email claiming to have been a victim of the judge.

"No, no, no. I did that as a way to grab attention", Munro-Leighton said to investigators. I am not Jane Doe ... but I did read Jane Doe's letter. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee. I saw it online.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh admitted that she conjured up the sexual assault charges she presented to congressional investigators during the confirmation hearings to "get attention".
