Sen. Chuck Grassley wrote to the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation about Judy Munro-Leighton, who claimed she was from California but is from Kentucky, according to several media reports.

Grassley said committee investigators began investigating the allegations and through open sources determined that she is a left-wing activist; is decades older than Kavanaugh; and lives in neither the Washington, D.C. area nor California, but in Kentucky.

Throughout the hearings, Trump has on multiple occasions expressed sympathy for Kavanaugh as he said he was being influenced by the fact that he himself has also faced "lame" allegations of sexual misconduct, all of which he has vehemently denied.

Before Ford's testimony, Conservative lawyer Ed Whelan suggested in a odd series of tweets that a classmate of Kavanaugh's who looked like him may have assaulted her. President Donald Trump also subscribed to the theory.

The report added: "Indeed, the evidence appears to support the position that Julie Swetnick and [her attorney Michael] Avenatti criminally conspired to make materially false statements to the Committee and obstruct the Committee's investigation". "It is illegal to obstruct Committee investigations". In order to investigate her sexual-assault claims, Committee investigators first attempted to reach her by phone on October 3, 2018, but were unsuccessful.

Grassley said that investigators were able to quickly determine three things about the accuser, given her "relatively unique name". 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.

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

Earlier Saturday, Trump wrote on Twitter: "A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanaugh has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or FAKE!"

The committee referred two more people to the Justice Department for criminal investigation.

Shortly after Dr. Ford's allegation surfaced, Sen. "I am not Jane Doe. but I did read Jane Doe's letter".

In a letter to a different senator while Kavanaugh's appointment was being considered, a Jane Doe claimed she was raped by Kavanaugh and another person, according to USA Today.

The individual, identified as Judy Munro-Leighton, has revealed "her actions were part of a ploy to take down Kavanaugh's nomination". "But when individuals intentionally mislead the Committee, they divert Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations and materially impede our work". Jon Tester, who is up for reelection, and his vote against Kavanaugh's confirmation. She says she did this to get attention and now I suspect she's going to get all she wanted and more.
