Specifying a specific file from a URL to assign to a File type in JavaScript

We have:

<input type="file" onchange="showFile(this)">

function showFile(input) {
  let file = input.files[0];

  alert(`File name: ${file.name}`);
  alert(`Last modified: ${file.lastModified}`);

Is it possible to set file with a local or file from a URL? I tried new File() but that did not read the file in question.
