New York Times corrects story detailing misconduct claim against Brett Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh Victimized By New York Times Hit Piece [OPINION]

Hirono also issued a statement that said, "Brett Kavanaugh should never have been confirmed to the Supreme Court".

One year later, the Kavanaugh controversy still rages.

In writing about the new allegation, the story did not initially include the detail that the woman supposedly involved in the incident declined to be interviewed, and that her friends say she doesn't recall it. None of the Democratic candidates publicly adjusted his or her position on Kavanaugh after the newspaper published the editor's note and updated the story. Kavanaugh heatedly denied her allegation when he and Ford testified before the Judiciary Committee in a televised hearing.

An aide familiar with the letter told CNN that the Federal Bureau of Investigation acknowledged receipt of Coons' letter at the time, but the senator never heard more beyond that.

"Susan Collins's vote to put Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court may be paying off for her, but it's putting women's control over their own health care decisions in extreme jeopardy", Gideon said in the video, which also included footage of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., calling Collins' handling of Kavanaugh "outstanding".

None of them have issued statements after the correction was issued overnight on September 16.

A 2020 rival, Senator Elizabeth Warren, tweeted that "Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached", tweeted Sen.

The primary accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, named four people who were in the house when she was allegedly assaulted, but none could corroborate her claim. He accused the Republican-run Senate of forcing the FBI "to rush its investigation to save his nomination". "Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people", Sen.

Along with her tweet, which was posted, then deleted, and then posted again without explanation, Ocasio-Cortez shared a video of a speech she gave at what appears to be a rally against Kavanaugh's then-impending confirmation. The allegation was unearthed by two New York Times reporters in their research for a book about the Kavanaugh confirmation. Leading Democratic presidential candidates have demanded that Kavanaugh be investigated or impeached. There is no chance that the requisite two-thirds of the Republican-controlled Senate would now vote to remove Kavanaugh from office, even if the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives were to impeach him.

Q. Didn't the FBI investigate allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh before the Senate voted to confirm him?

Ms. Harris said that Christine Blasey Ford, who alleged that Justice Kavanaugh groped her and tried to force himself on her at a high school party in 1982, was "treated like a criminal" during his confirmation process previous year.

It was not immediately clear why that detail had been left out.

"They are trying to influence his opinions". The Supreme Court press officers did not immediately return Reuters's request for comment.
