Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh faced one of the most contentious and highly politicized Senate confirmation hearings in United States history.

Beyond Senate Democrats criticizing his political views and past decisions, they also brought accusations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh front and center, despite a lack of evidence in a number of the accusations brought to the Senate’s attention.

After an investigation, the Senate found that the accusations lacked merit and chose to confirm him, a decision that sparked outrage among Democratic politicians and activists and was the catalyst for the #MeToo movement.

Now, it has been revealed that one of the accusers fabricated her accusations ‘for attention’.

The person was referred for criminal prosecution by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa

Zero Hedge Reports

Judy Monro-Leighton, one of three women who accused now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, was found to have lied during a congressional investigation and is now being charged with making materially false statements and obstruction.

According to The Beltway Report, a letter written by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, made a criminal referral against Monro-Leighton, who admitted that she “just wanted to get attention.”

She also admitted that an anonymous letter she sent to then-Sen. Kamala Harris describing a graphic sexual assault by Kavanaugh and a friend was not written by her, despite her original claim of being “Jane Doe from Oceanside, California.”

“No, no, no. I did that as a way to grab attention,” Munro-Leighton explained when questioned by investigators of the Committee on the Judiciary. “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. It was news.”
