Potential 10 Years for 'Anonymous' Kavanaugh Accuser as Grassley Contacts DOJ, FBI

Share

Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley has requested a criminal investigation against a man who made an utterly discredited rape accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — and the penalty could be severe.

Interview transcripts between Kavanaugh and the Judiciary Committee from Tuesday revealed a bizarre accusation made against Kavanaugh.

“A Rhode Island man named (redacted) recently called Senator Whitehouse’s office making allegations concerning a rape on a boat in August of 1985,” the interviewer told Kavanaugh, referring to Rhode Island Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse.

The caller 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.”

Of course, Kavanaugh firmly denied the allegation.

“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.

Twitter user JeffreyCatala16 was identified as the person who made the claim. After being discovered, he admitted the allegation was incorrect and recanted his statements.

Any research on the part of Whitehouse’s staff could have shown that the accuser is a rabid, anti-Trump left-wing lunatic.

For example, the accuser once suggested that the military should overthrow the U.S. government.

This left-wing liar could now face prison time for his baseless story.

Grassley sent a letter to the Department of Justice and the FBI expressing his frustration with the hoax.

“When individuals provide fabricated allegations to the Committee, diverting Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations, it materially impedes our work,” Grassley wrote.

Should this accuser be punished?
Grassley cited potential violations of “18 U.S.C. §§ 1001 and 1505.” According to Cornell Law School’s Legal Information Institute, section 1001 (false statements) and section 1505 (obstructing an investigation) both carry sentences up to five years, meaning the accuser could face up to 10 years in prison.

The chairman then urged the DOJ and FBI to give his referral their attention.

“Accordingly, in light of the seriousness of these facts, and the threat these types of actions pose to the Committee’s ability to perform its constitutional duties, I hope you will give this referral the utmost consideration.”

False rape accusations are not a joke.

Those who knowingly make such false accusations should be punished.
