Another sexual assault accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has been completely discredited, but this time it was discredited by the accuser himself.
According to interview transcripts released by the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island received a call from one his constituents concerning Kavanaugh.
The man reported “that early on a Sunday morning in August of 1985, a close acquaintance of the constituent was sexually assaulted by two heavily inebriated men she referred to at the time as Brett and Mark,” according to the transcripts. The incident supposedly happened on a boat in Newport.
The man claimed he realized one of the men was Kavanaugh because he saw Kavanaugh’s yearbook photo on the news.
The judge strongly denied the accusation.
“I was not in Newport, haven’t been on a boat in Newport. Not with Mark Judge on a boat, nor all those three things combined. This is just completely made up, or at least not me. I don’t know what they’re referring to,” Kavanaugh said.
He was right. It was just completely made up.
In the transcripts released by the Senate Judiciary Committee, the identity of the individual was redacted.
However, reporters were able to find the identity of the man by cross-referencing tweets in the transcripts with those made by accounts on Twitter.
The transcripts cited ridiculous anti-Trump tweets that made the search for the user easy.
“Dear Pentagon, please save my country from the parasite that occupies the White House. Our you waiting until Russians parachute in like in Red Dawn? Please help!” the person — using the name Jeffrey Catalan — wrote in one of the tweets.

After being found out, he recanted his accusation and admitted that he had made a mistake.
Do everyone who is going crazy about what I had said I have recanted because I have made a mistake and apologize for such mistake

By taking one scroll through his Twitter account, you can tell that the accuser is unabashedly left-wing and fiercely opposed to President Donald Trump.
This was a false rape accusation for political purposes.
It’s perfectly clear what those on the left are doing. Democratic politicians use sexual assault accusations as a political weapon while their morally depraved minions make false sexual assault claims for them.
Making false sexual assault accusations for any reason is completely despicable. This man should be thoroughly investigated by the police.
