Upcoming Brett Kavanaugh Ceremony Will Break SCOTUS Tradition Due to ‘Security Concerns’

A woman, who accused U.S. judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has confessed that she made up her claims because she was "angry". The Iowa Republican says that under questioning from the committee, she said she never met Kavanaugh and didn't write the letter.

President Donald Trump called out Democrats for not speaking up following the Senate Judiciary Committee referring one of Justice Brett Kavanaugh's accusers to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for potentially making "materially false statements" after she claimed Kavanaugh raped her.

President Donald Trump, who vowed in a speech at a Montana rally in October that the upcoming midterm elections would be the election of "Kavanaugh [and] the caravan" appeared to be using the potential FBI investigation as a means of inflaming his base.

Grassley last month also requested a criminal investigation into another Kavanaugh accuser, Julie Swetnick, and her attorney, Michael Avenatti.

Munro-Leighton made her allegations in an email sent in October to committee staff, according to Grassley.

But a court spokeswoman, Kathy Arberg, said on Friday that the change was being made "out of an abundance of caution due to security concerns". "I am not Jane Doe".

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

The revelation from Ford led to a sensational day of public testimony from her and then Kavanaugh before the Senate judiciary committee, which left Capitol Hill and much of the nation both riveted and disturbed.

In a letter addressed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray, Grassley said that Judy Munro-Leighton should be investigated for making materially false statements and for obstruction.

Kavanaugh is slated to appear at the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday for a traditional ceremony, but what he won't be doing is walking down 44 marble steps in front of the building while flanked by Chief Justice John Roberts.

Kavanaugh was questioned about the letter in September under oath and categorically denied the allegations.

The allegation came amid a number of other stories from women, including Dr. Christine Blasey Ford who testified that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party. The Committee's investigation has involved communicating with numerous individuals claiming to have relevant information.

"Jane Doe will get no media attention", Munro-Leighton wrote in an email, according to Grassley's office.

Many users instantly took Kavanaugh's side on Twitter, as soon as the news started coming in.

Throughout the process, Kavanaugh - a married father of two daughters and a highly respected judge on the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit - vehemently denied all such accusations and maintained his innocence.
