"One of his accusers, false accusations, just came out a little while ago and said it was all a lie; that she never met now-Justice Kavanaugh", Trump said at a rally in Montana on November 3 before criticizing the state's incumbent senator. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee ...
One person interviewed who claimed to know Ford said she did drugs on occasion, but she did not specify what kind of drugs.
Though the letter didn't have a name or any details about the time frame of the alleged incident, the committee staff read Kavanaugh the letter during a conference call the next day and asked him to comment.
"I was angry and I sent it out", she reportedly said. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
"This was a serious and thorough investigation that left no stone unturned in our pursuit of the facts", said Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the committee, in a statement about the report on the committee majority's probe.
Grassley last month requested that the FBI investigate accuser Julie Swetnick and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, who also represents porn star Stormy Daniels in her allegations against President Trump.
"The Committee is grateful to citizens who come forward with relevant information in good faith - even if they are not 100-percent sure about what they know", Grassley continued.

The Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee completely exonerated Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of "numerous allegations" of misconduct, including an accusation of attempted rape, exposure, and instances of heavy drinking in a 414-page report issued Saturday.
"What about the others?" he asked.
The allegation came amid a number of other stories from women, including Dr. Christine Blasey Ford who testified that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party.
Even though Trump originally admitted that Ford's testimony was "very compelling" - referring to her as a "very credible witness" - he later mocked her performance at Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing, and it appears that he will stick by his skepticism of her account after reviewing Grassley's letter revealing Munro-Leighton false accusations.
The original accusation was made in a September 19 letter to Sen.
