The New York Times is forced to revise his Brett Kavanaugh piece describing new allegations about sexual violence, stating that the prosecutor no longer knows the alleged incident.

An article published on Saturday included a new report from Yale classmate Max Stier, who says he saw Judge Kavanaugh, a freshman at the time, at a party with his pants down.

Bull claimed that he had seen friends of Kavanaugh at a drunken party in the 1980s pushing his penis into the hand of an unnamed female student.

But now it appears that friends of the alleged victim said they had not at all remembered the supposed sexual assault.

The Times also stated for the first time on Sunday that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed and did not comment on the allegations revealed in a new book by NYT reporters.

It is the second time that the newspaper returns to the & # 39; bombshell & # 39; piece after a tweet on Saturday the allegations & # 39; harmless pleasure & # 39;

The new claim is similar to the statement made by Deborah Ramirez, who, unlike fellow prosecutor Christine Blasey Ford, was not asked to testify at Kavanaugh's confirmatory hearings last September.

Ramirez claimed that Kavanaugh had exposed his penis to her and thrown him in the face during a dormitory, forcing her to touch him while they were both students at Yale.

Taurus informed the FBI and senators of the incident, but the FBI did not investigate the claim or interviewed the alleged victim, according to reports.

The new allegation was first published in a new book, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, by NYT reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly who investigated the university years of the Supreme Court.

But since Saturday's article, the newspaper had to add an update to make it clear that the unnamed female student does not remember the alleged incident.

The revision note from The Times said: & # 39; Editor's Note & # 39 ;: An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from an upcoming book, did not contain one element of the book regarding a classmate's assertion of Yale that Brett Kavanaugh's friends party his penis in the hand of a female student at a drunk dormitory.

& # 39; The book reports that the female student refused to be interviewed and friends say she does not remember the incident. That information has been added to the article. & # 39;

The Federalist & Mollie Hemingway, who reviewed an advance copy of the book, first marked omission from the Times piece.

She wrote on Twitter: & # 39; The book silently notes that the woman Max Stier, who is said to have been the victim of Kavanaugh and friends, denies any memory of the alleged event. & # 39;

On Saturday, the newspaper was also forced to apologize for the joke that the allegations & # 39; harmless pleasure & # 39; were in a Twitter message with a link to the Kavanaugh article.

NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIAL NOTE ABOUT KAVANAUGH PIECE

The Times revised note that was added Sunday said: & # 39; Editors & # 39; Note: An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from an upcoming book, contained no element of the book's book regarding a claim by a classmate of Yale that friends of Brett pushed Kavanaugh's penis into the hand of a female student at a drunk dormitory party.

& # 39; The book reports that the female student refused to be interviewed and friends say she does not remember the incident. That information has been added to the article. & # 39;

The Twitter page of the newspaper tweeted on Saturday: & # 39; Putting a penis in your face during a drunken dormitory might seem harmless. But when Brett Kavanaugh did it to her, Deborah Ramirez says, it confirmed that she didn't belong to Yale in the first place. & # 39;

Minutes after the first tweet was posted, the newspaper issued a withdrawal: & # 39; We have removed an earlier tweet from this article that was poorly worded. & # 39;

They later deleted that post after further criticism and added: & # 39; We have deleted an earlier tweet about this article. It was offensive and we apologize. & # 39;

Since the new accusation has come to light, a series of democrat 2020 has called on hopeful Kavanaugh to resign or to resign.

Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O & Rourke, Cory Booker and Julian Castro, were among the group calling for Kavanaugh's resignation.

President Trump defended his candidate for the Supreme Court and said that Kavanaugh should sue for libel.

He tweeted: & # 39; Brett Kavanaugh must sue people for libel, or the Justice Department should come to his aid. The lies that are told about him are incredible. False accusations without blame. When does it stop? They try to influence his opinions. I can't let that happen! & # 39;

Ford, a research psychologist and professor, attracted national attention last year after coming forward with allegations of sexual violence following Trump's appointment of Kavanaugh.

The 52-year-old claimed that 17-year-old Kavanaugh held her on a bed at a high school party when she was 15 and tried to take her clothes off while he put his hand over her mouth to stop her screaming.

Her emotional testimony before the Senate Court of Justice last September became a milestone for the # MeToo movement.

It changed Kavanaugh's confirmation to the most controversial since Clarence Thomas in 1991, who was also accused of sexual harassment.

Third prosecutor Julie Swetnick rowed back from her claim that Kavanaugh was part of a group that would peak at parties to attack girls.

The judge was finally confirmed by the committee on October 6 last year.
