Trump Attacks Democrats After Claiming A Kavanaugh Victim Admitted To Lying

Trump Kavanaugh

President Donald Trump viciously attacked Democrats and women who credibly accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault on Saturday morning in response to one woman recanting her accusations.

In an investigation that has lasted far longer than the pathetic investigation of Kavanaugh and allegations made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has been conducting a witch hunt against all the women who came forward with their stories, eventually finding one woman who recanted her story.

According to USA Today:

“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.”

On Saturday morning, Trump used the finding as an excuse to attack Democrats and question the truthfulness of the other women who came forward:

But unlike Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and other women who publicly came forward, Munro-Leighton did not. And Democrats never invoked her or her anonymous claims as part of their case against Kavanaugh.

Trump, of course, wants to tie Democrats to Munro-Leighton and wants to use her to attack the other women, which is wrong.

Just because one woman lied, it doesn’t mean the others did, too. After all, Ford took a polygraph and the FBI could not interview her because Trump hampered the probe from the beginning.

And Twitter users made sure to let everyone know it:

The fact is that Kavanaugh lied his ass off during his hearings but Senate Republicans jammed his confirmation through anyway in order to protect Trump. The FBI did not spend near as much time investigating allegations against Kavanaugh as Senate Republicans have been investigating the women who came forward. They are persecuting sexual assault victims in order to intimidate women from coming forward in the future and to rile up conservatives days before the midterm election. Meanwhile, an alleged sexual predator gets rewarded with a seat on the high court.
