Judge Brett Kavanaugh may now be sitting on the Supreme Court, but the circus surrounding his confirmation is continuing to make waves.
The latest development: A woman who made shocking accusations against Kavanaugh has admitted to investigators that she made up graphic rape claims “to get attention.”
In an official letter to the FBI and the Attorney General, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley recommended that accuser Judy Munro-Leighton face charges of making false statements and obstructing justice.
“Kavanaugh raped me,” Munro-Leighton wrote to senators while the judge’s confirmation was heating up. She went into disturbing detail of an alleged incident of being sexually assaulted by a young Brett Kavanaugh in a car.
Except it never happened.
“Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3) lives in neither the Washington DC area nor California, but in Kentucky,” the chairman detailed.
She confessed to Committee investigators that she ‘just wanted to get attention’ … ‘that was just a ploy.’
“Under questioning by Committee investigators, Ms. Munro-Leighton admitted, contrary to her prior claims, that she had not been sexually assaulted
by Judge Kavanaugh,” the publicly released letter continued.
But — but — but… what happened to “believing all women?”
“She further confessed to Committee investigators that (1) she ‘just wanted to get attention’; (2) ‘it was a tactic’; and (3) ‘that was just a ploy,'” Chairman Grassley explained, quoting the accuser.
“She said: ‘I was angry, and I sent it out.’ When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanaugh, she said: ‘Oh Lord, no.'”
What an absolute sham. Remember, while the confirmation was underway, the political left constantly berated anyone who questioned the anti-Kavanaugh claims. They lashed out at men in particular, and labeled anyone who was skeptical as misogynist women-haters.
Here’s the part that they forgot: True equality means recognizing that women lie too.
Of course they do — they’re humans. Men and women alike can be dishonest, petty, and driven by attention seeking behavior. Pretending that one gender is magically immune to this or mysteriously more saintly not only defies centuries of evidence, it’s patronizing in its naivety.
There’s a reason we have a presumption of innocence. There’s a reason we put the burden of proof on an accuser, and require evidence and facts before condemning someone.
The eagerness with which the left — and much of the media — threw aside these basics of true justice in order to push an agenda and a hashtag are appalling.
If you do one thing today, read the letter … and remember it the next time a mob rushes with torches to destroy somebody’s life.
