Criminal Probe Requested Against Witness In Kavanaugh Investigation
The Senate Judiciary committee has referred a witness against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh for criminal investigation for potentially giving false statements.
In a press release on Saturday night the committee said it had written to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Chris Wray to request an investigation into a “named individual” for “diverting Committee resources from an ongoing investigation.”
“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 Judge Kavanaugh. One tip was referred to the committee by staff for Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I). 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. After the transcripts of that interview became public, the individual recanted the claims on a social media post,” the press release said.
“The Committee is grateful to citizens who come forward with relevant information in good faith, even if they are not one hundred percent sure about what they know. But when individuals provide fabricated allegations to the Committee, diverting Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations, it materially impedes our work. Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal. It is illegal to make materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements to Congressional investigators. It is illegal to obstruct Committee investigations,” Sen. Grassley wrote in the letter.
The individual in question’s name is redacted but the wording makes it apparent that it is a man who goes by the name Jeffrey Catalan on Twitter.
Catalan claimed, in a letter to Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, that Judge Kavanaugh was drunk at a Washington D.C. event in 1998 when he pushed a woman against a wall in a sexual manner.
“When they left the bar (under the influence of alcohol) they were all shocked when Brett Kavanaugh, shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually,” he said. “There were at least four witnesses including my daughter.”
But hours later he went on Twitter and said he had recanted his statement and that he 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

“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,” he wrote.
Trump seemed to think no one would notice if he secretly ordered the FBI not to speak with one of Kavanaugh’s three named accusers, Julie Swetnick. But her attorney quickly revealed that the FBI hadn’t contacted her yet, which prompted the FBI – which despises Trump – to leak to the media that it was forbidden from investigating her allegations.
Interesting bit of news. One question is it true that the FBI despises Trump as an organization, or are there members in the FBI that either like him or hate him? Just asking as you seem to have the inside edge on the FBI, somehow. Ooops, another question was the leak sanctioned by the FBI or was it a member of the FBI that took it upon themselves to divulge information to the public?
It does not surprise me that there are more women coming forward with allegations. It DOES surprise me that the FBI have not been allowed to investigate and it seems to me that this is not going to go away. Every woman who has so far come forward MUST be heard…. There should be no stone under which this serial abuser of women can hide – especially since he has no remorse for his actions and has publicly stated that in his teens he ‘drank a lot of beer’ as if that excuses any misconduct at that time. As to the president…. he is an intelligent man but with no moral compass… and now he is in one of the most powerful positions on earth. He is not not just making decisions that affect his own organisation and its profitability and employees…. he is making decisions that affect the lives of US ALL.
He is drunk with power and because he has no moral compass the rest of humanity are suffering.
Well what do you say about the new accusations on Corey Booker? How the tables have turned.
What about this President Trump. Is it now time to can rosie? And Flake, somebody has undoubtedly promised flake a job as a lobbyist or some other high profile position for him to turn, not only on his party, but the American People.
What? Last Person Senator Jeff Flake Called Before Asking for Another Week of Supreme Insanity was DAG Rod Rosenstein
By: Jim Hoft September 29, 2018
Outgoing and unpopular Arizona Senator Jeff Flake spoke with Rod Rosenstein before announcing that he was delaying Judge Kavanaugh’s vote before the Senate for a week.
Flake’s move to align with Rosenstein sends a clear message that Deep State is now involved in the Supreme Court nomination process.
Arizona’s failing Senator Jeff Flake, who decided not to run for re-election, due to his unpopularity in the Grand Canyon State, hates President Trump.
His efforts to delay the Senate vote of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court will be his last act and one that not only negatively impacts the President, it also negatively impacts the country.
According to CBS, one of the last persons that Senator Flake spoke with before his announcement that he wanted another week before voting on good Judge Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court was none other than corrupt Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein –
N.L.McCoy stay off the meth you are emarasing yourself.
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/jeff-flake-brett-kavanaugh-fbi-probe-today-elevator-protest-chris-coons-2018-09-28/ he isnt lying
Idiot, at least I can spell!
Love your comment. I have a question of what degree of certainty is there about Flake’s intentions when speaking with Rosenstein to delay the Senate vote? Another question is “Deep State” I want to know what evidence there is a Deep State you have? What is your response to Jeff’s decision announced on the 28th that he intends to confirm Kavanaugh? Another question is when you make these statements, as the ones in your comment to the article, do you do any investigation or are just putting your opinion out there as fact?
All false accusers should be prosecuted and jailed
How about a probe into Kavanaugh’s misleading and untrue statements?!? the. gall.
People don’t want to come forward out of fear.
When people recant I always wonder if fear is the reason.
I’m glad Flake extended the time! Why do you believe Kavanaugh to be innocent? Why, after watching him fall apart, so you believe he’s fit to be SCOTUS?
JoAnn Connor who the HELL fell apart your party your BITCH was instructed how to act and what to say
Guy Blackwell You’re clueless!
Dear JoAnn- Really? Play nice when you are accused of these types of crimes and character assignations? WOW! How about it this were you behind that table testifying? How would you feel if someone brought ZERO Evidence to a hearing and smeared you and your family? I know I would be mad as Hell and personally I thought he kept his cool much more than 99% of people would!
Hes guilty .
Sad how they get so angry huh, JoAnn ?? Just remember the news sights they favor !!
JoAnn, put your liberal stupid ass up there and let people accuse you of these things and without proof. Let’s see if you sit there and not say anything. I am so sick and tired of stupid ass democRats that I could vomit. You and all of them are nothing but evil so called human beings. You not only have hurt him, but his wife and his two daughters. Just go sit down somewhere and STFU and finish drinking your Kool-Aid.
All judges who perjure themselves should be imprisoned
It’s interesting that the FBI only has a week to do their investigation per Trump. As I’ve said again and again, he DOES NOT care about women.
Teen agers do crazy things thats a fact! Those who have people in powerful places do even more crazy things cause they can get away with it ! And if their getting drunk its even more chance it happens I believe hes guilty of these allegations
Someone please tell me why anyone would entrust this investigation to the same FBI who have themselves been under scrutiny for alleged missteps. And are clearly biased against President Trump and anyone associated with him.
I was thinking the same thing, Sherry. That was one stupid move. The FBI is very corrupt and cannot do a honest investigation. They have already proved this.
Low down Kavanaugh and all the Republicans America will never be great again because of them
This is just another circus orchestrated by the SWAMP. And anyone with a Brain can see that! The Democrates are doing a fine job ALL by themselves of showing everyone who the racist/evil people that they are! Keep up the HATE and all the undocumented attacks on ANYONE who doesn’t agree with you…..REDWAVE IS COMMING 🙂
REDWAVE IS COMING <3
If they don’t prosecute Catalan for obvious fabrications, detrimental to a seante hearing, what good are laws? Such incompetents.
And… what is being done with K’s lies & perjury???
It’s interesting that one of the few leads they did follow up on recanted…
How about criminal probe of
Expose her and the democratic party that created this fraud!!!!! Prison should have been a fore thought,I can’t believe y’all still think we are this nieve of y’alls B.S.
‘Nieve’? Aha. I see. ‘Expose her’….how about if all of us expose you first and then we’ll move on from there? How would that suit you?
Kath Phelps for one I wouldn’t be that ignorant to get on the bus with that bunch to begin with and exposing her lies is exactly what the democrats want,but now the investigation will be on there backs too . What a back fire for them . Kath the democrats will be saving their own hydes soon enough they don’t and won’t care what happens to Ford. As for exposing me Americans could care less I’m not standing in front a committee lying through my teeth for the money she is though.!!! Lol!!!
Represion, repression, retaliation and punishment for exersicing your rights and offering candid testimony against the interests of the regime. it’s a fascist regime folks, open your eyes.
How about a criminal probe of Kavanaugh & the whole freaking administration, starting with the ringmaster. Congress & Senate
Good. ARESST him
He has already been checked by the FBI seven times you moron.
The moron is the jerk who doesn’t know Trump interfered with the investigation.
It was highly limited.
Dan Fryling you forgot to emphasize this here I will help you.
He has already been checked by the FBI seven times you FUCKING MORON. Yes Fred Latimer that is directed at you.
Mr Fryliing are you one of those man that would grab a woman pussy thinking that it’s your right .pandejo this basterd has no business in Supreme Court of the United States .
Rogelio give me a break. Lyndon Johnson used to pull his dick out and show it off. Kennedy was fucking everyone he could in the White House. Bill Clinton was too. So shut up no one except you idiots cares about what he said. Women in closed company say the same thing. You must be one close minded prude.
Not on this issue he hasn’t. The FBI was obstructed by the President and the Senate Republicans. The FBI didn’t even interview Elizabeth Ricon.
He was never investigated for these charges. MORON.
Get a clue you friggen idiots. The FBI interviewed the credible witnesses. This woman perpetrated a fraud with the help of low life democrats. The brain damage you suffer is just mind boggling. You don’t get what you want and you act like a bunch of immature punks.
More damn partisan politics from corrupt Republicans . Let’s Have the FBI
do a REAL investigation of Kavenaugh.
Fred Latimer they should. but they won’t they are all corrupt politician .
The fbi probe was not complete!! Crooked info is not enough!!!
It’s sad day for the wom.an in AMERICA OUR government has put a pussy grabber and a. Nazi in the Supreme Court .
Rogelio Sotelo bill and Obama gone pay attention
Jerry Schroader something tells me you are gay and want Obama so bad cause you keep bringing Obama into the picture .
False accusations should be prosecuted
Every time that I look at this example of a man, it makes me sick to my stomach. If he is the best example that they came up with, Lord hear our prayers!
What about Kavanaugh’s lies?
Certainly did not tell the truth
Typical Republican reaction to this type of thing . Try to lock up people who call you out for your bullshit .
There is a solution to this .
Vote . Vote the Republican party OUT of existence . This will be your last chance to do the right thing for you and your country . If they retain control , our laws will be changed to accommodate their behavior , and they will rule over people while doing whatever they want with impunity . Some may applaud that , but those people will also fall prey to the regime’s wrath in some form or fashion . VOTE WISELY AMERICA !
Look at your own party – Corey Booker accused of a gay assault in a bathroom.
It was the democrats who wanted the one week probe give it up
