Chuck Grassley just sent shivers down the spine of all Brett Kavanaugh’s false accusers. Look, this was a well-orchestrated hit job that almost worked.
They held the information to the absolute last minute for one reason – if they could delay or derail Kavanaugh they get a chance to win the midterms and block Trump’s pick.
If they had passed this information on in June the investigation would have been conducted and over with time to spare to get Kavanaugh on the bench before midterms.
Today Lindsey Graham called for an investigation into who leaked Ford’s name to the media and now Chuck Grassley did him one better.
He is going after one of Kavanaugh’s false accusers.
As reported by The Gateway Pundit:
This time, a male wrote a letter to Democrat Senator Whitehouse claiming that a female friend was assaulted on a boat in Rhode Island in 1985 by “two heavily inebriated men she referred to at the time as Brett and Mark.”
Kavanaugh denied the latest allegation against him.
The man who wrote the letter to Senator Whitehouse said he and another individual hunted down Brett and Mark at the harbor and “physically confronted the two men, leaving them with significant injuries.”
Shortly after NBC ran with the story, the man recanted his story–IT WAS A HOAX!
The Senate Judiciary Committee is now asking for a criminal investigation into this hoax.
In a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Chris Wray, Chairman Chuck Grassley sought a criminal review of the actions by a named individual who provided Congress with the information, diverting Committee resources from an ongoing investigation, according to the Senate Judiciary website.
“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. But when individuals provide fabricated allegations to the Committee, diverting Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations, it materially impedes our work. Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal. It is illegal to make materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements to Congressional investigators. It is illegal to obstruct Committee investigations,” Grassley said in the letter.
Brett Kavanaugh brought up this hoax allegation during the hearing on Thursday, furious the Democrats dragged out the process for 10 days allowing for an outrageous claim of gang rape and another allegation he raped a woman on a boat to be published by the ravenous media.
“The effort to destroy Kavanaugh may have been criminal,” President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton said Saturday evening in response to Grassley’s criminal referral.
Sen. Grassley refers to Justice Department guy who falsely tipped Sen. Whitehouse that Brett Kavanaugh raped a woman on a boat in Rhode Island in 1985. (Whitehouse referred the accuser to a reporter.) https://t.co/wxMtEcxwqr pic.twitter.com/oS6WUvBFgH
