Senate Report Says ‘No Evidence’ of Sexual Assault by Kavanaugh

The 414-page report (pdf) on November 3 summarizes the investigative findings based on interviews with 45 people and a review of 25 written statements. It contained highly detailed and graphic sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, but the letter listed no return address, failed to provide any timeframe, and failed to provide a location apart from allegedly happening in a auto, investigators noted.

He went on to warn that those providing false information to incriminate Kavanaugh have likely broken the law - indicating that they will probably face charges of their own in the near future.

He and his family suffered enormously from the charges as he had to battle to clear his good name and appear in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee during televised hearings to defend himself. Kavanaugh was confirmed in the Senate 50-48 after a contentious process that included several women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

The "Jane Doe" in the letter claimed that Kavanaugh and his friend "sexually assaulted and raped me in his auto", but provided no timeframe of the incident, and no return address. "Under questioning by Committee investigators, Ms. Munro-Leighton admitted - contrary to her prior claims - that she had not been sexually assaulted by Judge Kavanaugh and was not the author of the original "Jane Doe" letter".

There was never any corroboration for Blasey Ford's claims.

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.

She is a few decades older than Judge Kavanaugh.

A woman who claimed she was raped by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh later recanted her claim and admitted she lied.

Kavanaugh she had made to the Committee.

Late on Friday, Sen.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) listens as Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee during the first day of his confirmation hearing to serve as Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court at the Capitol in Washington on September 4, 2018.

Readers have been weighing in on this turn of events in no uncertain terms.

"I was angry and I sent it out", she added. "The witnesses that Dr. Ford identified as individuals who could corroborate her allegations failed to do so, and in fact, contradicted her". She says she did this to get attention and now I suspect she's going to get all she wanted and more. "She should have to serve time for this". But you know obviously I believe the accusations against him, but even if you didn't, if you saw him on television, refusing to let his wife talk.
