There should be serious repercussions for people who lied in their attempt to destroy a reputable U.S. Supreme Court nominee, says a religious rights attorney.
Liberty Counsel attorney Mat Staver tells OneNewsNow the contents of the 414-page report issued by the Senate Judicial Committee last week explains why people are being held accountable for accusing Brett Kavanuagh of sexual assault and even gang rape of drugged girls.
"After a thorough, exhaustive examination and investigation," Stever says of the GOP-led committee, "they found that there was no evidence, zero evidence, to support or corroborate any of the allegations by any of the complainants."
The Washington Times reported in a Nov. 6 story that the committee report pointedly went after Julie Swetnick, who accused Kavanaugh of being present when girls were secretly drugged and raped by high school boys at multiple house parties in the 1980s.
Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley has sent criminal referrals to the Justice Department accusing Swetnick and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, of breaking federal law by submitting false statements, the Times noted.
Swetnick's last-minute claims came after Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in the 1980s, and Democratic Sen. Diane Feinstein included the the rape party allegations alongside Ford's accusations during Judiciary Committee hearings.
Feinstein and other Democrats were accused by Republicans of declaring Kavanaugh guilty by stating they believed Ford's account and praising her as a "hero" and "courageous" for testifying against him.
With the help and blessing of those Senate Democrats, liberal activists stormed into Senate offices, disrupted the hearing, demonstrated in the hallways, rallied on Capitol Hill, and verbally threatened GOP senators in their stated attempt to keep "rapist" Brett Kavanugh off the Supreme Court.
The report, the Times says, depicts Swetnick as "dangerous, a serial complainer, a liar, mentally unstable and cruel toward her parents."
The story also notes that a woman has recanted her claims that Kavanaugh raped her in the back seat of a car, and a Rhode Island man recanted his statement that Kavanaugh raped a woman on a boat.
OneNewsNow reported on Kavanaugh's accusers backtracking, and finding themselves in legal trouble, in a Nov. 3 story.
