On Saturday the Republican side of the Senate Judiciary Committee was fed up with the false allegations against Brett Kavanaugh they will now turn them over to law enforcement investigation.

The outrage came after the fifth allegation against Brett Kavanaugh was recanted. The man claimed while on a boat in august 1985 his “acquaintance” was raped by Kavanaugh.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley wrote a letter with FBI Director and Jeff Sessions that will criminally target false allegations.

“In a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Chris Wray, Chairman Chuck Grassley sought a criminal referral of the actions by a named individual who provided Congress with the information, diverting Committee resources from an ongoing investigation,” The Senate Judiciary Committee said in a statement.

“Committee investigators have actively pursued a number of tips the committee has received regarding the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, though the committee has not been able to substantiate any allegations of wrongdoing by Kavanaugh,” the statement continued. “One tip was referred to the committee by staff for Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI). While Whitehouse referred the accuser to a reporter, the committee took the claim seriously and questioned Judge Kavanaugh about the allegations under penalty of felony.”

“Judge Kavanaugh denied any misconduct,” the statement said. “After the transcripts of that interview became public, the individual recanted the claims on a social media post.”
