The New York Times updated its accusatory weekend story about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to note that a woman it cited as the victim of an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh is said to have no memory of the incident.

The Times inserted a sentence to the piece it published based on a new book that discusses Kavanaugh's early life and the sexual assault controversy that arose during his confirmation process a year ago.

The story claimed Kavanaugh, at a drunken Yale University party during the 1983-1984 school year, exposed himself and "friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student." The allegation was made by a man who was at the party and claimed to have witnessed the incident.

The Times updated the story later with this line: "The female student declined to be interviewed and friends say she does not recall the episode."

An editor's note appended to the article online said:

"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."

Kavanaugh was heavily criticized in the media and ripped by Democrats — including the presidential candidates, who called for him to be impeached — when the aticle was published. It was written by Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, who are authors of the forthcoming book, "The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation."

The Federalist reported that the father of Christine Blasey Ford, whose allegations were central to the pushback against the new justice's confirmation, supported Kavanaugh for the court. Further, according to The Federalist, a friend of Blasey Ford, Leland Keyser, told the Times authors that she does not believe Blasey Ford's story about Kavanaugh assaulting her when the pair was in high school.

The Federalist also noted that the man who claims to have witnessed the alleged incident between Kavanaugh and the female student squared off with Kavanaugh during the Whitewater investigation of the 1990s. That man, Max Stier, defended former President Bill Clinton, while Kavanaugh was working with Independent Counsel Ken Starr.

Stier's Clinton ties run even deeper, as he has worked closely with David Kendall — who later helped defend Hillary Clinton after she was accused of improperly handling classified information on her home-based email server while she was secretary of state.
