'No evidence' to back Kavanaugh accusers' claims, Senate panel's report on FBI probe finds. Can the Justice sue for defamation?

Fox News   "An investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh by multiple women found that no witnesses could provide evidence to substantiate their claims, a letter to Senate Republicans from the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman said Friday.
"According to the 414-page report released by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, investigators interviewed more than 40 people, monitored social media and news reports and reviewed evidence provided by the judge and his accusers.
"“Following the separate and extensive investigations by both the Committee and the FBI, there was no evidence to substantiate any of the claims of sexual assault made against Justice Kavanaugh,” the report states." . . .

Can Justice Kavanaugh sue for defamation? . . .
When directly asked by Committee investigators if she was, as she had claimed, the "Jane Doe" from Oceanside California who had sent the letter to Senator Harris, she admitted: "No, no, no. I did that as a way to grab attention.["]
"She never met him.  He never raped her.
"It's time for Justice Kavanaugh to consider a defamation suit.  Maybe he can't as a public person.  Maybe he does not want to put his family through this.
"However, we have in this lady's own words that the whole thing was the work of partisan and angry Democrats.  They set out to destroy a good man and nearly did.

"Yes, I hope Justice Kavanaugh considers a defamation suit.  I think we need someone to pay for this awful episode."
