Now that Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed to the Supreme Court, the accusations against him are starting to fall apart. One woman who claimed to have been raped by Kavanaugh is now admitting she never even met him. She is going to find herself in a world of trouble.

‘I was angry and I sent it’: Fourth Kavanaugh accuser referred to FBI after recanting
Just days before the midterm elections, Sen. Chuck Grassley asked the federal authorities on Friday to investigate another person he says made false claims against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Grassley, in a letter to the Justice Department and FBI, said a woman by the name of Judy Munro-Leighton took responsibility for authoring an anonymous letter that made allegations that Kavanaugh and a friend raped her. After she was tracked down and interviewed by Senate investigators, the woman recanted and said she was not the author and had never met Kavanaugh.
Grassley claims the woman is a left-wing activist and told investigators it was “just a ploy,” he wrote in the letter. Her full comments to investigators were not made available and efforts by USA TODAY to reach Munro-Leighton were unsuccessful.
Grassley asked for federal authorities to investigate her on allegations of making false statements and obstruction.
Thank goodness Republicans didn’t cave on this when they easily could have.
