Trump rages as NY Times clarifies SC justice story

AFP, Washington

US President Donald Trump blasted The New York Times on Monday after it updated a story detailing a previously unreported accusation of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to say the alleged victim did not recall the incident. The article made waves when it was published over the weekend, re-examining sexual assault allegations aired last year at Kavanaugh’s polarizing Senate confirmation hearing.

The article dealt mainly with one of his accusers, Deborah Ramirez, who alleged that Kavanaugh waved his penis in her face at a drunken dormitory party when both were students at Yale.

But it also included a previously unreported account by a Yale classmate who said he saw Kavanaugh expose himself to a different female student at another party.

The report triggered fierce reaction, including from several Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls who called for a new investigation, or even impeachment.

On Monday, The Times said its story failed to include key details: that the alleged victim in the new account declined to be interviewed and “friends say she does not recall the episode.” “That information has been added to the article,” the Times said in an editor’s note.
