"DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT THESE HORRIBLE PEOPLE WILL DO OR SAY", Trump also tweeted, using all capital letters.
While 2020 Democrats did not back down from their impeachment calls, despite the Times revision, top Democrats in Congress appeared less eager. 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.
The Times said that the female student in the latest claim declined to be interviewed and that friends said she doesn't recall the episode.
But shortly after the NYT published the excerpt as an article, Mollie Hemingway, a writer at the Federalist, announced she had received a copy of the upcoming book and discovered that the New York Times excerpt omitted from article the fact that Ramirez didn't actually recall the incident happening. Dianne Feinstein, were both informed of the existence of the allegation. The Gray Lady has been slowly committing suicide since 2015 but finished off the job with its unimaginable hit piece of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend.
The book says the Federal Bureau of Investigation was made aware of but did not investigate the incident, purported to take place when Kavanaugh was a Yale University student in the 1980s.

It's broadly thought that Trump has been pushing for a withdrawal of United States troops in time for his 2020 reelection bid. The government has been fighting the Taliban, which has been waging a war against Kabul for nearly two decades.
The new reports reopened some of the bitter, partisan divisions that accompanied Kavanaugh's confirmation.
The FBI examined the accusations made against Kavanaugh before he was confirmed and found no substance to the allegations. He declined to comment on the new one, according to a court spokeswoman. Trump, championed his nominee on Twitter, writing, "He is an innocent man who has been treated HORRIBLY".
Ms. Harris agreed with the notion that her calling for impeachment could be seen as political opportunism.
At the time that Coons reported Stier's allegation to the FBI director, the White House and Senate Republican leaders had directed the bureau to reopen Kavanaugh's background check. Ramirez's lawyers provided the Federal Bureau of Investigation the names of roughly 20 people, but few if any were ever interviewed.
An independent investigator said that Ford's story had multiple inconsistencies. Chris Coons, a Democrat from DE, sent a letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation requesting that the agency talk to individuals that had more information about Kavanaugh. Stier's claim to the staffers, we're told, was that other people at the party put Kavanaugh's genitalia into the hands of a classmate.
While considering his impeachment, the House Judiciary Committee concluded that impeachment "should only be applied to high crimes and misdemeanors committed while in office and which alone affect the officer in discharge of his duties as such, whatever may have been their effect upon him as a man, for impeachment touches the office only and qualifications for the office, and not the man himself". Kavanaugh was confirmed October 6.
