"Think about how bad shit it would be to then get mad at the landlord who was giving them a deal because of their like pro veteran ideology how much how blame the victim. Can you be there? Like, you're you're you're writing opinion pieces about like, oh, these gullible landlords, this is because their ideology, you know, that's insane. Pain the victim in the Justice Mawlid case, assuming does you know, the facts going the way they are that he made it up. The victim is pretty much all of us. And by the way, you know, also real people of color and gay people that he, you know, who's again as I said earlier. Goodwill heave took and and betrayed all that kind of those are the real victims. Imagine a weird it would be to blame those people which is what this conservative is doing. He's blaming people and condemning people who heard a horrible story went. Wow. That's that's awful. So the correct response when someone fakes being a veteran or fakes a hate crime is to say, wow. That person is garbage and should face consequences. That's awful. It's not no one should respect veterans, and it's not no-one should respect victims or people of color or gay people. It's a straightforward as a get our in. Lastly, I wanted to talk about what my view that. The phrase believe victims and tweeted this and believing Dr Blasi Ford and not believing Jesse small I think are all compatible because as is pretty much always true with slogans like believe victims, the truth is a little more complicated. And if you decide to be like a five year old child and take it literally believe victims does that mean, you believe jussie small, even when the police say it if you decide to do that. And like the extent of your intellectual capacity is to do the five year old child. Literal interpretation thing, then sure you might have a point so have fun being child and arguing that way. But in reality is more nuance. Believe victims means not believe every single victim. No matter what the evidence says at anytime. It means we live in a world right now, especially especially preemies too. But still we. Live in a world where victims are usually raced not believed or not properly made whole their perpetrators are often believe a Cape man's book. I just finished it. Actually, I'm gonna try to see if she'll come on the show. I don't know if she will. But maybe she will. I'm fingers crossed. She wrote about him Pathy. And it's her term for the empathy that we extend toward the perpetrators stuff that we don't often we just kind of ignore the victim oftentimes. So like in the, you know in the Stanford rapist case all the stuff about his swim times. You know, like, oh, he he was a swimmer. Look what he threw away. All the look look what's happening to him. You know, they him Pathy that kind of thing. That's what believe victims mean. It means take that current framework in which we often say, you know, women are liars they mixed up if they make up rape stuff. All the time. You know, they're trying to surprise spurned love that was the previous. Framework and probably still is a lot of places. It's probably still while, you know, you know, women how they lie about stuff like that. It's taking that and saying no we want to change the framework to where that's not your response. That's not a valid thing to say if someone says, you know, women make this stuff up all the time..

"Think that's one of the hardest things for people with privileged to understand that it actually means sometimes stepping back that there is there is that you're going to get your chances. Your chances are gonna come. Thank you. See? It's like I right in the beginning right near the end ended. But near the end of the big first movement of occupy there were like these protests going on in New York where there's a rule a New York that you can't you need a permit have amplified sound. So if you're going to do a protest, you can only speak louder voice will carry these huge protests happening as they do this thing called human microphone. Here's of you know, this where the person speaking has to speak in short sentences, and then it's repeated backwards across the crowd and one thing that it does makes the person who's speaking like stay on point. Go on and on about this one time. But also, it makes everyone in the crowd repeat the sentences of the speaker. So if you even go to that protest by saying those phrases out loud, I think you start to understand things in a different way. Like coming out of your mouth. That was really surprising talk about get educated. Trump is the catalyst for you in terms of what kind of brings your activism to a new level. But really things escalated for you around the Brett Cavanaugh hearings, you came to Washington what was that experience? Like, so when when sessions and Trump we're going to get rid of Dhaka, I was really upset about that. And I live in New York or protests going on in front of Trump Tower and a woman that I know in immigration movement called me and said, do you wanna go get arrested tomorrow? And I was like.

And I kinda just wanna like no, you guys, you know, what I mean and decided that I didn't want to get arrested the next day. But in the end, I ended up holding the safe space for people who were getting arrested. So that the press can see what's going on. So you need to go like full back crowds. But then I knew how to get arrested. And so when Cavanaugh came up it was before Dr Blasi Ford came forward, and I'm sure we all have different opinions in this room. But like I. The president is an unindicted co-conspirator in a felony investigation. And.

If you can certainly has the same root is civilization. To be civilized. If one is uncivilized one is uncivilized. Hillary Clinton, perhaps you've heard of her. Senator from New York failed. The presidential candidates secretary say yes, yes. Wife of the Philander and chief who's also a hell of a gifted politician and would be a moderate to conservative Republican. If he ran in twenty twenty Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton being asked about incivility on the left at a conference in Europe overseas consorting with foreigners. You know? I'm trying to make a serious point here. I probably gotta stop under undermining your side. Oh, it's a habit. So anyway, here's what Hillary said about civility in politics. You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for what you care about. That's why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the house and or the Senate that's when civility can start again. Now, here's what we're talking about. We're talking about perhaps character assassination in the style of the cavenaugh. Hearing no matter what you think about Dr Blasi Ford, like the avenue thing was character assassination. The the peanuts wagging incident was very thin very very thin proof. But you need to say that every day there's that. And then there's a for instance, how about Maxine Waters famously saying this.

If you bring someone who is the front of that fight. And who does know what they're talking about? And you need to make space for that.

But like I I mean, the the president is an unindicted co-conspirator in a felony investigation. And I don't think it'd be appointing supreme court justices and tell that's been settled. So I was like, especially I don't want this guy who's going to take away Roe v. Wade. Aide. So I thought oh, this is one of us that arresting. And I knew a bunch of women were going to stand up and disrupt and say why they disagreed, and I thought I'm going to do that. And see I didn't really know what was going to happen.

"Indoor bag. And so there's a narrative emerging on the right in particular. I was informed by my YouTube. Apple on my phone thinks I'm like right wing because they're like, I've got a video for you today. It's the latest Tucker, Carlson hot, take this morning's Tucker. Carlson hot take was all about how the Democrats blew it on cavenaugh unlike home, you know, the Republicans outmaneuvered them, and I think it's just important because I, I was deep in that story enough to feel that way, right? Like, yeah, like how did they, how did they get that one? Right. And the truth is given the proper context. It was always a hail Mary that they would be able to defeat any supreme court nominee because the Republicans have the numbers in the Senate and they are willing to do anything necessary to get a supreme court nominee through. So, yeah. Guardless the, yeah absurd. Yeah. And I think this is tying into the overall idea that the hearing and the testimony of Dr Blasi Ford and cavenaugh that everybody watch will like watch this huge backlash, the the Republicans are going to be bringing but miles. You're saying that like most people vote. Yeah, you're angry. They ain't people that are angry. Vote rent complacent. You have no motivation to change your situation. Yeah, I think about the attitude of the fall of twenty sixteen man. Ain't nobody gonna vote for this asshole right now too. And now we're in a situation where my goodness, man, progressive people, liberals women all just people people of color. They have an ax to fuck and grind. And yes. Again, polling shows that Democrats are doing very well, but I think, yeah, definitely because the progressive side took the hit in this hearing, there's even more, I think energy behind it. And I think Republicans just telling themselves that 'cause they're, they're looking at something off in the distance in the sea coming towards them. And it looked like some kind of a wave would know how big it is, but something will happen. And I just don't like this idea like the outmaneuver thing. It's so clearly a way to try and paint this administration is getting a win and go Thank to you it. it because it was clear. It's like you guys just made it very clear at any reasonable person that you really don't give a fuck about women. What women have to say what they could be telling the truth about anything like no, no, no, no. And yeah, now you wanna make it like, yeah, well, we got him in and we outmaneuvered them and really, all you did was so much strategy involved. Now, the strategy was you have no moral scruples and you broke the rules, right? So congrats because you showed your ass. That's really all that happened. I think that's is them trying to spin this like tragic the tragedy, tragedies, five Astana tragedy, tragedy like that. Yeah. And overall the fact that the story came out that he was probably a sex Krim overall that made him less popular. It made him it kind of heightened the support and enthusiasm among Republicans, but made them less popular with swing voters and independence and Democrats. So yeah, and yes. There appears to be a backlash to the metoo movement, but that's nothing new. I this just I think, gave the people who are going to lash back about that movement, an excuse to talk about it. It's like, you know if patriarchy's virus, you know what I mean? It tries to fight off any antibodies. That's right. And that's all that it's doing is trying to thrash and survive because there even that woman who posted, like, here's my son, he's a sailor like that him to bullshit and they're like, p refuses to go on solo dates anymore because of he's afraid that feminists with a an agenda are going to try and accuse him of something. Then the sailor himself comes down, goes, pause, all of this mother. My mom is a wacky. She goes extra on the fucking social media.

Well, at any rate, I heard the lovely MS Feinstein talking whilst in the lunchroom, and she was doing a very very clever thing, politically, she was claiming that the F B I hadn't been allowed to talk to enough people, which is the rallying cry now, but she was brilliantly using the term witnesses in the congressional sense. Meaning people who come to talk people who talk to us, but she was making it sound like they were witnesses to the allegations. To the alleged attacks clever. It was oh it's clearly dishonest, but it was clever. She was saying there were twelve identified witnesses to the attack on Dr Blasi Ford. And from the context, it was people who had heard something from somebody else. It was like second generation here say it was completely useless in any serious inquiry. But if they're dragged before congress there a witness, you know, I felt for that last week. I didn't I didn't make that distinction in my own mind. I was confused several times when I heard people talking about witnesses. I was picturing witnesses. They witnessed it in the room. Just anybody who speaks is a witness. Yeah, she quite literally she was suggesting more than stating. But she was talking about the what what was the the one lady with the infamous why PWI Yale Pena's wagging incident. Whatever name is. She was referring as Ramirez she was referring to and there are a number of witnesses who can substantiate that and she was talking about people. Okay. I heard somebody talking about I felt for that.

"Good morning. I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. And I'm Steve Inskeep. In Washington DC to hear Republicans tell it supreme court nominee. Brett Cavanaugh is a victim. President Trump is mocked as main accuser Christine Blasi Ford who says that she was sexually assaulted by. Him decades ago and in Rochester Minnesota yesterday. President Trump cast the supreme court vote in purely partisan terms Democrats. Have been trying to destroy judge. Brett Cavin, suits. The very first second. He was announced. And it was announced for one simple reason, he has an incredible intellect cavenaugh himself said that he was the victim of a conspiracy of Democrats seeking revenge on behalf of the Clintons yesterday the nominee vaguely backed off of that assertion saying that he said some things he shouldn't have in his public testimony. Although he did not specify what those things were democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal is on the Senate Judiciary committee, which has been considering Kavanagh's nomination. Which now goes before the full Senate Senator good morning. Good morning. You thank you for having. So let's not that you have had an opportunity as other senators have to view the FBI report. The additional background information looking into the allegations against cavenaugh. What did you see? What's most striking about? This report is what's missing. There are no interviews with some of the. Really key witnesses, including Dr Pasi Ford and judge cavenaugh themselves as well as other I witnesses there is evidence that should have been pursued leads. It should have been followed answers that should have been sought. And it has all the appearances of a whitewash either. Let let me just ask about that Senator because although it is true that there is not a very large number of witnesses who are who are dented and interviewed. Mark judge was interviewed. We are told and that is the individual that Dr Blasi Ford said was in the room at the time of this sexual assault. He hadn't been interviewed before it just made a general statement denying any knowledge. Now, he's been interviewed by the professionals. Did they find anything? Well, I can't go into what was found and what's in the report. But let me just speak generally. Every interview conducted by the FBI leads to additional witnesses and information that has to be pursued just as a great journalist NPR pursue leads after they hear them in interviews. So do the FBI agents. What happened here was that was circumscribed as to who they could interview and how long they had. And as a result, we have a very incomplete and inadequate reported. Renting granting that is it a correct statement made by Republicans when they say there still is no corroboration of the allegations against the supreme court dominate Cavanaugh. That's incorrect. So is the contention that there is no hint of misconduct. There is it's a matter of public record powerful. Testimony in this interview. Although it's not in court. It's in the interview from. Debra Ramirez, and the specific eye witnesses and other leads that should have been pursued about her are nowhere here, including by the way. Connecticut constituent who had information Matt cavenaugh reaching out to some of those witnesses in an apparent effort to shape there. Contentions to a New Yorker interview. And that. Let me just untangle that in the minute that we have left here. There have been some allegations some suggestions that there may have been contact between Brett Kevin on people close to him, and Deborah Ramirez and people close to her the four that story was revealed. It's our understanding that Republicans have looked at that evidence not found anything there. There's some text messages that are subject to interpretation are you alleging there is solid evidence that cavenaugh himself was involved in some kind of cover up. There's certainly evidence of that outreach. But here too important points. First of all this report should be made public. So you, and I can engage in real conversation. And so that the contentions are making can be supported by pointing to parts of the report second this issue of temperament has now come to the fore, especially after John Paul Stevens yesterday. The former supreme court said that his performance at the committee last Thursday was disqualifying. The shelf pitting arrogant, acrimonious threatening demeanor that he brought to the court in many ways unmasked, the judge and showed us the real, man. We'll have to stop the conversation. There is so much to say and some of you will get to say it on the Senate floor this morning, Senator Blumenthal. Thanks very much. Thank you. That's Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut. First lady, Melania, Trump has been touring the African continent's she's visiting four countries. She's mostly been focusing on conservation and children and families and pears. Ada Peralta caught up with the tour in Nairobi. Kenya? This has been a trip without politics. First lady, Melania, Trump has helped babies and she's received flowers gone nine Malawi. Now, she's here in Robie at the David Sheldrick elephant and rhino orphanage. And let me tell you there is nothing cuter than a baby elephant. The babies have pretty terrible stories. A lot of them were found nearly dead because of drought. Others lost their moms to poachers, but they are adorable founding clumsily toward their morning snack. The first lady smiles broadly, watching the elephants gulp massive bottles of milk. Melania? Trump makes no public statement. Her main point her office has said is to highlight the work of US aid on the continent. But the words policies of her husband have also cast a shadow, President Trump has reportedly disparaged African countries and his administration has loosened restrictions on importing trophies from big game hunting. They have also reinstituted a policy that bans aid from any organization and even talks about abortion veracity. That was. Little donation because we didn't see picks in. We did not have any other donor runs. The reproductive health network in previous years, the provided twenty five thousand legal abortions in Kenya. And the need. She says has not changed. But now, they can not get a safe abortion services because we are not in a position to offer for more details and probably even train more healthcare providers in the other organizations have lost funding to provide contraceptives in HIV counseling. But really there is nothing like baby elephants to shift the focus from politics.

The people who were attending they loved it. They will the president's energy here. He is the president of the United States, mocking a sexual assault victim. Supreme court nominee. That's not playing the Senate. You have a number of Democrats and Republicans who are identified the president's actions that his rhetoric. That it could hurt them in make them, particularly when it comes to female voters while already turned off by this president. They basically said it wasn't helpful. It was wrong. It was inappropriate. There's no indication that I will have much impact on how they vote. Well, especially this two senators crucial to the confirmation both criticized Senator Jeff flake and Senator Susan Collins. I mean, he's really playing to an audience of a few senators or why would he do something like that? The president just let Lucy tends to do that. Or that political rallies? Just like last night. He's been pretty restrained for the past couple of weeks while this scenario, Dr Ford and just kind of lost played out. But he just went off script and say, what was on his mind and ended up mocking. This one is testimony. Senate Judiciary committee. It seems like FBI says said that they might be able to wrap up their investigation before Friday as early as today. What have you heard about that?

"At least in this context, the realm import is that when cabinet was asked, if he had been at a wedding with her, he said, probably. Wait a minute. Why do you say that? You know you're at the wedding with her trying to get the patriot of you and hurt the wedding together. You're perfectly aware of that. Why would you say probably he went on to say, I'm sure I saw her because it wasn't a huge wedding, but then he doesn't have any specific recollection that is a weird Lyman unit. You have the picture of you and hurt the wedding? I would say yeah, I was at the wedding with her. Yeah. I remember being at the wedding that I don't remember much beyond that, but no, no, even that he's got a lie about now. There's something wrong with this guy, and so we came in with an open mind every day evidence mounts that he has been lying all throughout so far. There's been no evidence the doctor Blasi Ford is lot. So this is if it was a mystery that mysteries becoming less and less interesting every day. One side has been shown to lie over and over and over again. And the other has had their story corroborated not only by. Other people who talk about the other details not about this song because that was in a room which just cavenaugh judge and Ford at the time, but but every other detail she's given even corroborated by bread Kavanagh's own calendar. So it's becoming a no contest to who's lying in who selling the truth. And again on the issue of tax, it's there can be no reasonable argument. Otherwise, and Lindsey, Graham, I'm sure is not only saying pull the nomination, but impeach cabinet. Right, right. Lindsay. 'cause I know you claim your man of your word. Well, Lindsey, Graham maintains that these accusations against Brett Kavanagh are nothing more than politics the left trying to smear him. In fact, I wanted just quickly remind you of the meltdown that Senator Graham had during be hearing involving breath Cavanaugh and Dr Blasi Ford. A quick look at that which you want to do is destroy this guy's life. Hold his seat open and. Hope you win at twenty twenty. You've fed that not make what never do to them what you've done to this guy. This is the moat unethical sham? Since I've been in politics, boy, I won't power God. I hope you never get it.

"There are men who take a stand, and we'll speak out, and they will get a lot of grief just as women do when they speak out against sexual assault. But particularly for us for the next generation coming up. I agree with this, man. This is so important that meant involved. Yeah. And speak out and part of the real important criteria there for men doing things is to work in conjunction with the women kind of be a good ally. And I would. Liking that to many many white people are so upset about what happens with people of color in different ways, either at the border or law enforcement, or whatever the case might be. But we need to be careful not pick up the microphone and take it over we need to ask how we can help. All right. That's a good transition. I think to our next caller from Sunnyvale. Welcome. Hi, thank you. I just wanted to kind of dovetail on that. And singing the praises of my husband and good good. Good men. So when the hearings we're going on he actually was watching the hearings while I was getting ready for work, and I survivor, obviously. But I've done a lot of work over the years. I feel like, you know, I I I'm good place in life than he just came in just said, she stopped me said, I just have to commend you an honor you for the work that you've done, and like how much that you have been able to own your life. And I didn't understand how much I needed to hear that until he said it totally choked to yell and. Yeah. Yeah. You do that work. And you don't understand how much work you're doing? And to have that recognized was what's really so loving. Exactly what I did it. So sounds like a great spouse, you know, and you could see some of that Jacqueline to in the hearing yesterday when mostly democ specially when democratic senators thank Dr Blasi Ford for coming forward. Calling her courageous and a hero for all that you could just see the emotion welling up because a lot of times, I'm sure she felt very at moments very much on the defensive maybe questioning whether she had done the right thing and coming forward, and it is important for allies to to to reinforce that. Absolutely. It doesn't matter. How many times someone needs to hear something like, it's not your fault or your strong or your brave? I'm here for you. And especially when the pain and the trauma that we are experiencing us from an interpersonal relationship. Healing happens in interpersonal relationships as well. And I want to thank this caller for sharing about their healing process. Because that is a big part of what gets offense skipped over and news media. It's about what happened and the the impact and also very important to note that healing as possible. It's hard work. It's a choice, but that many people do it, and the strength that survivors have that they did survive in that they continue to survive is really important that that gets highlighted by the people in our lives and just for us to name that as well. All right. Thanks for that call from Sunnyvale and kudos to your husband is well, just a couple of minutes left here less than that, actually, a listener. Right. That was a victim of sexual assault.

"Maybe conscientious and dedicated, but they are simply no substitute for the train professionals with the expertise and experience FBI agents. A person who is innocent would want the FBI to investigate their claims and clear their name. Judge Cavanaugh refused to make that request. Dr blassie for did. So the question is what is he hiding? What is the administration concealing? Why have we not received those? Millions of pages of documents that remain hidden. Why? Has judge Cavanaugh not taken a polygraph? He says, they're not reliable. And that the polygraph doctor for subjected herself to was meaningless she passed it. As district as a judge on the circuit. Judge Cavanaugh ruled that they are in fact. Meaningful. He wrote quote law enforcement agencies use polygraph to test the credibility of witnesses and criminal defendants refusing to take a polygraph. Judge Cavanaugh has failed that test judge club Cavanaugh claim that all four witnesses Dr Blasi Ford identified as being president the party have said that these sexual assault. Quote, didn't happen. Only one person has said the sexual assault. Didn't happen. Brett on the other three partygoers, Dr Blasi Ford identified said, they do not remember the incident that is a big difference. Do not recall is a different statement than it didn't happen. And the other woman. Dr Blasi Ford name who was there has since publicly stated that she believes. Dr Blasi Ford's account. Judge cabinet tried to give himself an alibi making it sound.

He said repeatedly that he never in his life. Drank so much that he couldn't remember. Numerous people who spent considerable time with him during the hearing in high school. During his high school, college and law school years confirm that he frequently drank to excess and sometimes became belligerent. Finally, judge Cavanaugh claim that he has always treated women with dignity and respect his words yet he and his high school friends. Named one of my constituents were not a dolphin in their yearbook pages saying they were her Alumnia. Reducing her to a sexual conquest. That is no way to treat women with dignity and respect. In fact. She attested to the pain. That it has caused her. He would have us believe that these brave courageous sexual assault survivors have come forward as part of a vast life with right wing conspiracy. How insulting to them? To say that they are pawns or puppet. Of us or anyone else? In fact, they are brave courageous independent women. Who have stepped forward? And so I want to say in conclusion to the men of America. For you. I hope this will be a teaching moment. Not too. Denigrate anyone who has been a survivor of sexual assault. But to lift them up I want to enter into the record the stories of a number of constituents of mine.

"On survivor, Dr Christine Blasi for very strong every one of us. I think were riveted powerfully impressed by her truth. Yeah. There was profound. We heard her provide entails in that story that can be created and other fan and be uncovered. Yeah. If we hear from other witnesses where we spend the next six months. Maybe a special counsel knowledge about what happened to her. I wanted to FBI investigation into the Democrats that room and they're smear rollers near allegedly in the room was Mark. Evidently, he's given us one statement by the FBI by the FBI has never been just by Senate. Investigators questioned by any member of our committee, the staff members interviewed a me has got a state never submitted a detailed account is not detailed enough he submitted account, but it's not detail. Oh, I moved miss chairman that we had him before this committee as a witness. I moved that you'd be objected from the Senate on a bipartisan basis I recognize that he has submitted a cursory cursory six sentence. Yeah. Yeah. It's never they're never happened. So you could say it over and over again for hours on end, and I should waterboard responsibility. Yeah. You've got a duty in at the very least to the left wing of your party at very least subpoena move to vote. It is our subpoena Hillary Clinton to do everything we can uncover the truth. Ask her about destroying today that compelling testimony from compelling, Dr Blasi Ford. Yeah, what's her name? And he looks like a lizard conscience vote without hearing at least from Mark. I'll do respect. Mr Chairman that. There are other witnesses essential to hear from their.

"I was I was really offended by how he behaved at the hearing. There was a strange format in which the woman have been brought in. The prosecutor was brought in to cross examine, essentially the woman who Dr Ford who's making this allegation. She started to ask sort of similarly, pointed procedural and prosecutorial questions of judge cavenaugh and then was stopped. And then the Republicans took the gavel back and ask the questions arrests away. What did you think about that? I thought her role in the first. Place was highly concerning the fact that they asked a prosecutor to ask questions of Dr Blasi Ford as if she's on trial. She's on trial. She was bringing forth credible allegations of this committee needed to assess. And then look at judge cavenaugh says his credibility. And then the fact that she starts to question judge cavenaugh and then cut off by the Republican senators and dismissed. I mean, it really wasn't fair, and it just goes to the heart that this hearing was never set up to be fair. It was never set up to get to the bottom of the fact that again, just Kevin could not answer the cushion. Five, democratic senators asked him, will you ask for an FBI investigation and he could not say yes, not once he continued to obvious gate to pivot to different issues to filibuster and talk about things that was not being asked about, I just thought his behavior and the content of his testimony was absolutely inappropriate. Do you think he was lying? Yes, I think he lied several times. The fact that he kept saying, oh, yeah, I love beer. I love beer. I mean, honestly, and then couldn't possibly say, no. There was no evening drank so much didn't remember even though we made jokes about it when he took his road trip with his buddies to watch the baseball game. I mean, it's really shocking to me that he could be so direct in not telling the truth about his drinking and how it affected him. Do you think he was lying about the course of since of the allegation? Dr. Bazi Ford said he assaulted two. He said, he's innocent. You think he remembers that night and his lying about it. I believe Dr Blasi Ford and I believed her testimony. I think she spoke from the heart as someone who's reliving the worst moment of for life. You could see her face. This was something that was traumatic deeply troubling for her whole life. She told the truth and that was very clear and I don't see how possibly what he said could possibly be truthful, given what she said. So I think he was telling the truth and I don't believe him. You know where to moment, obviously. The country, this sort of profound reckoning awakening around questions of patriarchy sexism, gender inequity is what was today. What was the spectacle today that all of those men on the Republican side of that that day Brett cavenaugh Dr Blasi Ford? What message did it send in some ways it was a tragic day for America because to have those Republican senators disregard Dr Blasi Ford's testimony to have them speak as if she didn't just tell them what happened. So honesty. So honestly, and so forth, rightly and then to try to turn this curing into a spectacle and accused Democrats being partisan, this is some conspiracy. I mean, it was shocking to me and I think a lot of women in this country, particularly for survivors. It was a really low moment. I think a lot of women are suffering and feel that this country does not have their back that in fact, these Republic. Senators are disregarding them, disregarding their truth, disregarding their value and their voices by how the behaved about how they treated judge cavenaugh. And as if he is the victim here, he is not the victim here he is someone who's hoping to be able to serve on this court. In a lifetime appointment, he is being given an extraordinary opportunity any shows so little humility and she'll grad of opportunity he's been given. And he turned this entire hearing into a sad story about himself that he's somehow the victim here. That's not the case, and I just want to say that to Dr Wasi Ford, her courage, she's the hero, and she's the one who spoke truth to power in..

"Victims division for Maricopa County attorney's office will be asking the questions for the Republican senators if there might be a couple of senators who decided at the last minute to just go ahead and take the mic anyway. Which they have every right to do. Right. But they're expected to see their time to hurt ask questions. She's got a weird job that you were a prosecutor. This is this is different than a courtroom. Yeah. This is very different. Because not only does she not have the procedural comforts of being in the courtroom. She's got a room full of senators who are going to jump in and talk whenever they want. There's not that order that you have in the courtroom. So I think that'll take a little bit of getting used to also there's going to be long answer. She doesn't have a whole lot of time. Like, she went in the courtroom, right? That you have unlimited amount of time almost here. It's going to really eat into her time with those answers. And here's the other important thing. Typically, when you're prosecuting a case, you know, everything about the case, you know, all the facts of the witnesses, you have evidence, you know, the things that you have to take off to prove here. She doesn't really know any more than what you, and I know away way almost like an initial interview. Of witnesses for trial as opposed to actual trial. I agree very much. So she's going to be trying to get out details and lock them into information that either we already know or try to dig in and find out what we don't know as a prosecutor, you prep your witnesses. You spend all the time with them you try to make sure that they're comfortable or as comfortable as you can be sitting in that witness box. Dr Blasi forward looks very nervous as I imagine. I would if I was in her position. Talk about body language a little bit with her. Yeah. I'm looking at her right now. And from the minute, I saw her sit down she looks terrified. And I could I could imagine. I mean, this is one of the biggest stages in America to be in the hot seat. She's got half of America loving her probably in the other half hating her and not believing her. So this was a very big risk for her to take and putting this information out there and sitting in that seat right now, she with her glasses, and she doesn't have a whole lot of makeup on. So she looks very very pale. So she looks terrified. I mean, there's no other word to use for that. And I also think that Rachel Mitchell. We might notice that she'll be a little bit nervous too. Because she doesn't have those comforts of the courtroom. She has all the tools, but I think she this is the biggest stage for her to. Yeah. Absolutely. All right. KTAR legal expert. Monica lindstrom. It will stick around as we hear Dr Blasi Ford's testimony coming up live on KT. A R seven nineteen now let's get back over to the valley Chevy dealers traffic.

"And she's asked for an FBI investigation. People typically don't ask the FBI to investigate their made up stories because they could go to jail for it. And and the Republicans have refused to have an FBI investigation of her or of Dr Blasi Ford, which to me is the most suspicious thing and all of this. And even Lisa Murkowski said tonight, I think you maharaja was one who asked her about it. You know, should there be an investigation into these allegations, as you said by the FBI? And she said, well, that certainly would clear everything up, wouldn't it? So it's pretty obvious that that is what is needed that these people need to be put under oath in question, not just giving statements. People can craft statements that are very carefully worded and give them to the Senate, which is what's happened that mostly say, they don't remember it is. Very different when you're being questioned by the FBI and as a lawyer was saying, who has expertise in this area knows how to ask these questions, knows how to deal with trauma victims or alleged trauma victims. And so I think what they're doing is actually very reasonable. Amanda should GOP side agreed to an FBI investigation. Have the White House ask for one. I've always thought in the beginning, a limited investigation with the key players with a timetable made sense, but that doesn't seem like it's going to happen. And here's what I would tell MS Ramirez or Dr Ford, you know, take the politics out of if these were my friends, I would say, listen, if you want to go through this process is going to be painful. If your goal was to have your story told go to the media, maybe go to another outlet, but if your goal is to change boats because you really can't live with.

"Facts. Okay. I just told you the fact that many times. Denies. We haven't heard any testimony. I'm going to say it many times. Many times. Okay. So they start getting into Conway's like getting into and at the same time her husband's tweeting about what a horrible human being Trump is look you're missing my point. My point. Is you guys said you wanted to process you wanted her to be hurt? Then you then you said. No, I don't remember a lot of things that happened. When I was fifteen maybe she's forgotten. We don't know what she's forgotten. What she hasn't. She hasn't even testify. You won't go the FBI. The president won't ask for the FBI. Why not make the best efforts lurking in there? Here's why not make the best efforts. These are best efforts. This not having the FBI is the best effort. Again, I asked the question to everybody out there when you hear something like this. I believe Dr Blasi Ford because he's telling the truth. Well, I've heard, you know, many many predators say and refrained allegations against them. I think she's credible. Would you hear that? I believe I believe I believe do you think bringing the FBI? And if the FBI says, hey, we took a look we checked it out. We don't think are stories credible. We're not saying it didn't happen to her. But we're definitely saying it didn't happen with this guy. Or there's no way we're going to be do you think that anybody on the left is going to go? Well, they're just going to say it's partisan ship. They're afraid of Trump. They're gonna come up with some other excuse. If your mind is made up my mind is not made up whether or not he did it. I don't know. It wasn't there. I was not there. Neither were you. So they go in there. And they say, you know, we talked to the guy and under oath. He says he's not there, and we kinda tend to believe that maybe he's not there. Or maybe the say, hey, you know, what we think this guy's full Crabbie's has come back. I don't know. But even if they come back with and say, look, there's no way we can prove or disprove any of this. And the reality is judged by what we've heard on her side and things kind of changed on his side. You know, he's pretty Pat about this. We don't think he did anything. Then what do you think it's going to go? Well, they've spoken. They're gonna say railroaded. It's a game. It was completely rigged privilege all of these things. That's what's going to happen. That's it. That's it. And by the way, how many women came out some sixty five women came out. Right. A little bit more than that. This is Megan Michaela. Who is also a identifies as a sys gender person. I think talking about her friend Brett more than five dozen of us the girls who were his closest friends in high school and hung out with him virtually every weekend had no choice. But to stand up and say that's not the Brett, I know. It's not good enough. You're not good enough. And now you've sold out your sex. That's the other stuff. I heard if you don't if you don't agree with her. If you're a man, it's your privilege, right? Know, it's the patriarchy. It's all of these things because it becomes versus them thing. I want due process and truth. I don't care about what side it's on asset it, and I'll say it again, if he is the one that has done something here. He's disqualified overdone and dusted and your reputation all the stuff you built on is a house of lies and Bs and you just go, right, right? You just that's it. You're done. Just. Scarola?

It is proven. Due process and truth, actually matter and yes as a man. I'm sick and tired of hearing about it all the time about how horrible we are about. How the past sins of of of Ben before us.

"WTVN. I'm just looking through some of the other stories there. Hey, or some of the other news sites. I guess they really need to if I were if I were Dr Ford's attorney or one of them one thing, I do is. I would send all the media a new picture of her. Because you see he keeps seeing the side by side photos in Brett Kavanagh is he's looking very judicious. He's he's giving testimony or he's or it's him accepting the nomination for the supreme court or something and the one picture the only picture that anybody seems to have of Dr Blasi Ford is her in the sunglasses with big smile looking like you don't cruise. Yeah. I mean, you know, since I myself link she's a professor at a university. They don't have like a staff directory. They'd have something something, I guess not.
