Kavanaugh Report Reveals ‘Mistaken Identity’ Claims – Grassley Probe Concludes ‘No Evidence’ to Back Sexual Assault Allegations
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released a 414 page report on Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend and confirmed that there is no credible evidence to support the sexual assault allegations.
The Committee interviewed 45 individuals and took 25 written statements relating to the various allegations against Kavanaugh, the Senate Judiciary said.
Grassley’s probe also revealed details behind ‘mistaken identity’ claims from two other witnesses who came forward claiming they were the ones who had the encounter with Christine Ford, not Brett Kavanaugh.
Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee revealed in late September that they were talking to two men who thought they had the “encounter” with Christine Ford, not Brett Kavanaugh.
One of the men claims it may have been a case of mistaken identity.
Fox News reported:
The man who claims he may have had the encounter with Ford was one of 40 people committee investigators interviewed as part of its probe into the sexual allegations against Kavanaugh, which was done alongside the FBI background check that was compiled in a matter of days.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, in releasing the report, said there “was no credible evidence to support the allegations against” Kavanaugh.
Ford testified she was 100 percent positive Kavanaugh assaulted her, rejecting the notion of a case of mistaken identity.
But the report gave details from the purported witness claiming exactly that scenario. The man told the investigators that when he was a 19-year-old college student, he had visited Washington over spring break and kissed a girl he believes was Kavanaugh’s accuser.
“He said that the kiss happened in the bedroom of a house which was about a 15-to-20 minute walk from the Van Ness Metro, that Dr. Ford was wearing a swimsuit under her clothing, and that the kissing ended when a friend jumped on them as a joke,” the report said.
The Van Ness Metro is in Northwest D.C. His name was redacted in the report but investigators interviewed him the day before Ford testified Sept 27.
The second man claiming to be the one who had the encounter with Christine Ford said he believes he shares a similar appearance with Brett Kavanaugh.
Grassley’s report summarized statements from a man who claimed after he graduated high school in 1982, he traveled to DC several times that summer.
The witness said that “based on old photographs of Justice Kavanaugh he has seen on the news, he believes the two of them share a similar appearance,” the report says. The man’s name was also redacted.
“Both men describe consensual encounters,” Grassley’s report concluded.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is also investigating potential witness tampering by Ford’s friend and former FBI agent, Monica McLean.
Via Fox News:
Committee investigators are in the process of trying to determine if Ford friend Monica McLean, a former FBI employee, tampered with a witness.
“Several media outlets have reported that the FBI’s supplemental report indicated that Leland Keyser, a friend of Dr. Ford, felt pressure from Dr. Ford’s allies to revisit her initial statement to the Committee that she did not know Justice Kavanaugh or have any knowledge of the alleged incident,” the report says.
Ford said that when Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party, Keyser was one of the people downstairs.
The report added that according to the news articles, Keyser reported that McLean and others contacted her to suggest she “clarify” her account.
The Senate Judiciary Committee said in a statement that there is no evidence to support sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.
“This was a serious and thorough investigation that left no stone unturned in our pursuit of the facts,” Grassley said. “In the end, there was no credible evidence to support the allegations against the nominee.”

Grassley has also criminally referred creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick to the DOJ for a criminal investigation for false statements and deliberate obstruction of a congressional investigation (violations of 18 U.S.C. §§ 371, 1001 and 1505).
Grassley then hit Avenatti with a second criminal referral regarding another declaration he submitted to the Committee related to the second, anonymous Kavanaugh accuser he brought forth with allegations of gang rape.
Last week, the Senate Judiciary Chairman criminally referred another Kavanaugh accuser to the Justice Department for investigation.
The accuser, Ms. Judy Munro-Leighton, admitted her rape accusation was a “ploy” and she just wanted to “get attention.”
The Kavanaugh smear campaign spearheaded by Dianne Feinstein with the help of the mainstream media is how the Democrats will roll is they gain power–vote red all the way down the ticket on Tuesday!
