The Senate Judiciary Committee late Saturday released a 414-page report in which the panel members say they found no supporting evidence for any of the allegations of sexual misconduct made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh ahead of his confirmation.
"Committee investigators spoke with 45 individuals and took 25 written statements relating to the various allegations made in the course of the #SCOTUS confirmation process," the Senate Judiciary Committee tweeted Saturday.
"In neither the committee's investigation nor in the supplemental background investigation conducted by the FBI was there ANY evidence to substantiate or corroborate any of the allegations."
The committee investigators "found no verifiable evidence that supported" Christine Blasey Ford's allegation that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed in the early 1980s and attempted to remove her clothes while covering her mouth with one hand.
"The witnesses that Dr. Ford identified as individuals who could corroborate her allegations failed to do so, and in fact, contradicted her," the report notes.
It also states that committee investigators "found no verifiable evidence" to support Deborah Ramirez's claim that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when they were both at Yale.
The report additionally dismisses allegations from Julie Swetnick, forwarded by lawyer Michael Avenatti.
"Indeed, the evidence appears to support the position that Julie Swetnick and Mr. Avenatti criminally conspired to make materially false statements to the Committee and obstruct the Committees investigation," the report writes.
Avenatti and Swetnick have both been referred to the Department of Justice for potential criminal investigations into their behavior during Kavanaugh's confirmation process. Avenatti has been referred a second time.
In addition, the report details that investigators were also unable to locate supporting evidence for the several anonymous accusations against Kavanaugh, noting that one of the accusers has been referred for a criminal investigation.
Kavanaugh passionately denied all of the allegations against him and was ultimately confirmed after a brutal confirmation fight on Oct. 6 by a vote largely down party lines.
Old news. Only valid news when they report the arrests of those involved.

Good job by the Republicans on the Committee! That will stop enforcement of any impeachment effort in the House by Democrats. It leaves them with nothing effective to do. They can only make more noise and look stupid doing it.
The crimes won't stop until the criminals go to jail.
So finestein, harris, booker, ford and avanatti all go to jail?
If all the girls I felt-up as a teenage boy didn’t really want me to (when they pretended they didn’t want me to), why did they keep coming back over and going into the closet with the door closed with me?
And I hope none of them grew up to look like Blasey-Ford.
What legal recourse is there against the fake accusers and the democRATs on the Judiciary committee that pushed this even though they knew it was fake?
Criminal referrals were sent to the DOJ. So in other words, nothing will happen to anyone.
2 weeks of fake news and witchhunts and no apologies from Democrats, pundits, the media, or facebook.
Here’s the report:
I read about the first 40 pages or so. Worth it.
My question: Why in the hell didn’t The Hill include this link in their report? Dummies!
I’m at about page 30. I can clearly see why nobody will talk about this report.
LOCK THEM UP
Most of us party boys in high school and college had more than enough hot young ladies seeking wonderful sex...and none of them have ever come forward and claimed what Ford claimed...judging by her appearance, she probably couldn’t get anyone interested in having sex with her...sorry babe, I would not be desperate enough to even want to touch you!!!!!!!!
Surprise, surprise. I’m sure the Democrats will be releasing a rebuttal document saying that the women were credible.
