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

A 414-page report including interviews with over 40 people has concluded that there was no evidence that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was involved in sexual misconduct.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on Saturday announced that his committee investigation into allegations of sexual assault made against then-Supreme Court nominee and current Justice Brett Kavanaugh had produced no evidence to support those allegations.

Committee investigators tracked her down and found she lives in Kentucky, not California.

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

The committee instead found evidence that one accuser fabricated her accusation, while another accuser conspired with her attorney to make false claims.

Grassley urged the Federal Bureau of Investigation and attorney general to give "utmost consideration" to the case, but added that Munro-Leighton's fabricated allegations should not discount sexual assault claims that were made in "good faith". It claimed that Kavanaugh and another man had raped her repeatedly in the back seat of a vehicle after offering her a ride home. Grassley claimed that Munro-Leighton confessed to committee investigators that she had never met Kavanaugh and admitted her allegation was a "ploy" and "tactic" because she opposed the judge's nomination. Kamala Harris of California in September, and was publicly released with Kavanaugh's testimony on the Committee's website on September 26.

She continued: "I know that ['] Jane Doe ['] will get no media attention, but I am deathly afraid of revealing any information about myself or my family". She claimed that she was not in fact "Jane Doe" but that she did send the letter to Harris, adding, "I did that as a way to grab attention".

"One of his accusers, false accusations, just came out a little while ago and said it was all a lie; that she never met now-Justice Kavanaugh", Trump said at a rally in Montana on November 3 before criticizing the state's incumbent senator. Was she part of a broader conspiracy to sink Kavanaugh with false allegations?

Justice Kavanaugh, when confronted with the allegation, told Committee investigators, "The whole thing is ridiculous". She says she did this to get attention and now I suspect she's going to get all she wanted and more.

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.
