Just last month, everyone in the US was glued to their television sets to watch the Judge Kavanaugh hearings for the Supreme Court.
A first accusation of sexual assault by Dr Blasey Ford was quickly followed up by others and the mainstream media went overboard to try and create an atmosphere which portrayed Mr Kavanaugh, a judge with an impeccable record during his time on the bench, as a drunk who assaulted women at all times.
Fast forward four weeks and Mr Kavanaugh was duly appointed to the Supreme Court, an FBI investigation investigated the accusations, found nothing wrong and by now one of the accusers admits she lied.
The left-wing mainstream media, the Huffington Post and Vox for example, now both call Ms Judy Munro-Leighton, a woman from Kentucky who admits that she made up the anonymous rape accusation ‘a little-reported story.’
Problem for them is the reasoning of Ms Munro-Leighton for doing so. In her defence (as she will now be prosecuted for lying to the US Congress) the woman from Kentucky says she was ‘angry’ because of the situation.
There might be some fault for the MSM right there. In creating a climate where accusation followed accusation, could they now admit that they themselves created an atmosphere where rage and emotion overtook logic and calm? Has anyone heard anything about the other accusers since?
At the time, The Huffington Post reported that, and we quote, staffers for Democrat Senator Kamala Harris (pictured), a Committee member, referred an “undated handwritten letter to Committee investigators that her California office had received signed under the alias ‘Jane Doe’ from Oceanside, California,” which “contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh. The anonymous accuser alleged that Justice Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her ‘several times each’ in the backseat of a car.”
As her reasoning for doing so, Ms Munro-Leighton now admits that she “just wanted to get attention” and said “it was a tactic” and “that was just a ploy.”
She had “called Congress multiple times during the Kavanaugh hearing process – including prior to the time Dr. Ford’s allegations surfaced – to oppose his nomination. I was angry, and I sent it out.”
Yesterday, President Trump seized on the report, calling her “a vicious accuser.” And then followed up, asking “what about the others? Where are the Dems on this?”
His statement in full: “A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanaugh has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or fake! Can you imagine if he didn’t become a Justice of the Supreme Court because of her disgusting False Statements. What about the others? Where are the Dems on this?”
Democrat Senator Ms Harris, a possible contender for the presidential nomination in 2020, has not responded yet.
