Woman who claimed Kavanaugh raped her referred for investigation

A woman who claimed to be the author of a letter accusing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of rape may face a federal investigation of her own.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, referred a woman who had claimed to have written an anonymous letter sent to Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., for allegedly false statements she made to the Senate Judiciary Committee during the investigation of allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings.

In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Grassley said that Munro-Leighton contacted the committee via email on Oct. 3 and said she was the author of the handwritten Sept. 19 letter signed by Jane Doe of Oceanside, Calif., which detailed an encounter in which Kavanaugh and a friend allegedly sexually assaulted the writer.

When asked in late September about the letter's allegations in an interview conducted under penalty of felony, Kavanaugh said, "[T]he whole thing is just a crock, farce, wrong, didn’t happen, not anything close."

Committee investigators first tried to contact her during the confirmation hearings, and finally succeeded Thursday. Munro-Leighton, who does not live in California and is much older than Kavanaugh, told staff she was not the author of the letter and had contacted the committee as a ploy, Grassley said in his letter referring Munro-Leighton for investigation.

"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," said Grassley in the letter. "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."
