The GOP Senators asked the Barr DOJ and FBI Director Chris Wray where they were on the status of the criminal referrals against four individuals for making materially false statements and obstructing the Senate investigation into alleged misconduct by Brett Kavanaugh.
Here again are the four criminal referrals sent to the DOJ and FBI in October 2018 by Senate Republicans.
1. The first referral, dated September 29, 2018, relates to a false allegation made by an individual who told the Committee that he had direct knowledge that Judge Kavanaugh assaulted a close friend on a boat in the harbor at Newport, Rhode Island in 1985. 1 After the Committee extensively questioned Judge Kavanaugh about the allegation, the individual recanted and apologized on social media for making the false allegation.
2. The second referral, dated October 25, 2018, relates to false allegations made by Mr. Michael Avenatti and his client, Ms. Julie Swetnick.2 In a September 23, 2018, email to Committee staff, Mr. Avenatti stated that he and Ms. Swetnick were aware of evidence that during the 1980s, Judge Kavanaugh participated in the “targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them.“3 Committee staff interviewed Judge Kavanaugh and ten other individuals in connection with these allegations, which were outlined in graphic detail in a sworn statement to the Committee purportedly written and signed by Ms. Swetnick.
3. The third referral, dated October 26, 2018, relates to evidence that Mr. Avenatti falsified a sworn statement to the Committee in order to provide support for Ms. Swetnick’s unfounded allegations.4 The sworn statement by an unknown declarant claimed that Judge Kavanaugh had spiked the punch at house parties with Quaaludes and/or grain alcohol in order to make “girls more likely to engage in sexual acts and less likely to say ‘No. “‘5 NBC News later reported on a series of contacts with the purported declarant, who stated that she had denied the key allegations in the declaration both before and after the statement was publicly released and that Mr. Avenatti had “twisted [her] words.”6
4. The fourth referral, dated November 2, 2018, relates to allegations made by Ms. Judy Munro-Leighton. 7 On October 3, 2018, Committee staff received an email from Ms. Munro-Leighton stating that she was the author of an unsigned letter containing highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh previously received by the office of Senator Kamala Harris. Ms. Munro-Leighton included the text of the letter in her e-mail to the Committee, claiming that Judge Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her “several times each” in the back seat of a car. 8 When Committee staff interviewed Ms. Munro-Leighton, she admitted that she falsely identified herself as the author of the letter and its allegations and had only claimed authorship “as a way to grab attention.”
According to Mike Davis, the former Chief Counsel fr Nominations to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, the DOJ and FBI have NOT EVEN RESPONDED to GOP Senators on their criminal referrals.
FYI, @TheJusticeDept still has not even responded to — let alone filed any charges related to — the @senjudiciary chairman’s 4 criminal referrals made following the alleged false statements, obstruction of congress, and criminal conspiracy during Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation. https://t.co/q4KAKR5Uhn

Instead the DOJ and FBI is going after Trump supporters like Roger Stone to make sure he dies in prison.
