It may seem like it happened a long time ago, but probably not for Brett Kavanaugh and his family. When the now-Supreme Court justice was nominated to the bench by President Trump, women came out of the blue to accuse him of sexual assault. It launched a hearing before the Senate, as the mainstream media breathlessly accused a family man–a husband and father–of things he never did.
Kavanaugh was vindicated through the hearings and Republicans confirmed him to the Supreme Court. But the media just wanted to sweep the whole thing under the rug, despite the man’s reputation being forever marred in some Americans’ minds. Around that time, one of the women confessed to a shocking crime. The media ignored it, but now it’s coming back around.
From Zero Hedge:
Judy Monro-Leighton, one of three women who accused now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, was found to have lied during a congressional investigation and is now being charged with making materially false statements and obstruction.
According to The Beltway Report, a letter written by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, made a criminal referral against Monro-Leighton, who admitted that she “just wanted to get attention.”
One of the women who accused Kavanaugh of assault later admitted she made it all up for attention. The letter she supposedly sent to then-Sen. Harris wasn’t even written by her. It was written by a friend.
The woman even said she had never met Kavanaugh. Her entire claim was a “ploy” to get seen in the media. That’s how pathetic our MSM has become. People think they can openly lie, ruining someone’s life, and get away with it.
Monro-Leighton was caught. Sen. Chuck Grassley at the time made a criminal referral against her. From what we’ve read, the FBI did not investigate or prosecute the woman. But the seriousness of what she did cannot be ignored.
The media was quick to bury this story in 2018, to preserve its own reputation. The liberal media all but hanged Kavanaugh over unprovable accusations. They slandered a husband and father, a respected judge and public servant. But when the dust cleared, they didn’t want to be held accountable.
But we will hold them accountable. The mainstream media is just as guilty as Monro-Leighton. They fanned the flames of this scandal, turning millions of Americans against a Supreme Court justice. To this day, leftists insult and attack him. Yet Democrats have no remorse.
- One of the women who accused Brett Kavanaugh later admitted she made it up.
- She lied to get attention, drawing a criminal referral from Sen. Grassley.
- At the time, the MSM covered up the story to protect its reputation.
