When questioned after her initial allegation, the truth eventually came out that Munro-Leighton lied because she did not want to see the conservative Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court bench.

One person interviewed who claimed to know Ford said she did drugs on occasion, but she did not specify what kind of drugs. "When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanaugh, she said: 'Oh Lord, no'". Munro-Leighton said "I did that as a way to grab attention".

"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", he wrote in the letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DOJ.

Subsequently, Committee investigators began looking into Munro-Leighton's allegations. It claimed that Kavanaugh and another man had raped her repeatedly in the back seat of a vehicle after offering her a ride home.

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

President Trump blasted one of Brett Kavanaugh's "Jane Doe" accusers at a Montana campaign rally on Saturday, saying "she made up the lie" as he derided the accusation as "fake". "When are they going to say what happened?"

Kavanaugh's confirmation in October was complicated by several allegations of sexual misconduct, including by California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford referring to the alleged misconduct during their college years.
