Over the weekend the New York Times published a bogus story falsely accusing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of additional misconduct while in college. After being called out on the facts, the paper issued a correction on their story and admitted the claims of sexual misconduct weren't remembered by the alleged "victim." Instead, the claims were made up and pushed to the media by a Washington D.C. attorney close to the Clintons. 

Editors’ Note: Sept. 15, 2019
An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book's account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.

Before the correction, the false NYT story prompted a number of 2020 Democrats to further smear Kavanaugh and call for his impeachment.

All of these tweets are still up. In fact, Harris proudly pinned hers to the top of her profile and is doubling down.

As a reminder, not single accusation against Kavanaugh had evidence or corroboration.

"After an extensive investigation that included the thorough review of all potentially credible evidence submitted and interviews of more than 40 individuals with information relating to the allegations, including classmates and friends of all those involved, Committee investigators found no witness who could provide  any  verifiable evidence to support any of the allegations brought against Justice Kavanaugh," a Senate Judiciary report, released in November 2018, states. "In other  words, 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."
