Marco Rubio on Hurricane Michael's destruction: 'A total wipeout'

"Not on the coast. These are rural areas a lot of them have older residents poorer residents people that could not have accurate, even if they wanted to many living, manufactured housing and mobile homes, large mobile homes, not but nonetheless mobile homes, multi-agency properties off of dirt roads, who are completely isolated at this very moment. And I know crews are working hard to get to them. But these are the first people these are the likeliest people to be forgotten. I think that is where the real challenges lie ahead in the next few days in terms of saving lives and and getting to people quickly. All right. Let me switch topics now to the case of Jamal kashogi. You said that if it turns out that Saudi Arabia had something to do with his murder that quote, a complete revolt against our policies with Saudi Arabia when take place in congress, where do you think the state of that revolt is and what are the possible range of actions? Congress could take. Well, on the first point I think it everyone's waiting to find out. Exactly what happened. And frankly, this is the kind of case where we may never know exactly what happened all a denial. But that said there is real news reports out there that there is some sort of audio video evidence of what occurred if that were to emerge or any other facts were to emerge or frankly of questions here unanswered, there's no video of him leaving that facility. There's gonna be a big problem. I can just tell you that in congress right now there is no pro-saudi element. That's going to stick with our relationship with Saudi Arabia as it's currently structured if in fact, they Lord this man into this consulate killed them. And then, you know, cut up his body and Senate team to go into that country to kill him in the first place. It's just an unacceptable thing. We should never accept that. From anyone in the world. It undermines our credibility and our moral authority around the planet to go after regimes like Putin's or Madero in Venezuela or others as far as the options that are concerned. People talk a lot about the arms sales. Our relationship with Saudi Arabia extends Welby on arms sales as well. And I would just say it's unfortunate because Saudi Arabia is an important part of our Middle Eastern strategy. They are a key leverage and hedge point against the rainy and influence in the region. But that cannot supersede our commitment to human rights. Let me ask you about the moral question here. The president has recently secured the release of Andrew Brunson from Turkey so working on the one hand on that account. But in this account, he said, basically because there's one hundred ten billion as he claims arms purchases on on order from Saudi Arabia that, you know, that's that's essentially more important or has to be weighed here in the response. Give me your sense of of your reaction to that that moral position the president our free. Yeah. I would've phrased that differently. It's not about the money. There are plenty other countries that would want to buy arms from the US. And frankly that I I would have phrased it very differently. The important thing is that when you saw arms to a country. So it's true. What he said that they can buy from China Russia or anybody else when you sell arms to Saudi Arabia. It gives. Leverage over them because they need replacement parts any the training. So it's the kind of you know, you can't sanction a country by cutting them off of something. Have you never provided in the first place? So it is true that arms sales gives us leverage. You mentioned leverage. Were you surprised? The president set up front that these arms sales were something that he wanted to protect in other words, aren't those isn't that your leverage in your in your argument with the Saudis, and he sort of said right away. Those are two important to mess with look if you don't sell arms, they're going to buy them anyways. And then in the future when you want influence Saudi behavior on another topic. You're not gonna have anything to threaten them whether anything to hold over their head. But to me it isn't about the money. I don't know if the president had just been briefed. And that's kind of how he used it or expressed it, but the bottom line is. I mean, they're the money. There's no way. There's no there's no enough money in the world for us to buy back our credibility on human rights. If if we do not move forward and take swift action on this. If in fact, even when it's proven to be true. Let me ask you a question about climate change in the wake of hurricane Michael congressman. Carlos Cabello Republican colleague of yours believes that Republicans need to stop questioning the science behind climate change. He said that that America was saddling young Americans with an environmental debt that was as bad as the fiscal debt. What's your response to that? Why respect Carlos tremendously he's been a leader on that topic? My view is climate sea level rise. These are measurable things you can measure that. So it's not even a scientific debate. At some point. It's just a reality debate. You can measure whether sea levels are higher than they used to be warmer than used to be in the like for as a policymaker, the fundamental question is what can we do about it? And if in fact, humans are contributing to that what public policy can we pursue that you can actually pass does not destroy your Konami at can be effective. But what the congressman and others? You're saying is is that if you believe the science about human contribution that there are mitigation efforts, you can take with greenhouse gases, and that that's where there needs to be a little more focus from Republicans is on admitting that that climate change is caused by human activity and taking actions, whether it's coal plants or emissions from cars or methane gas to actually get get it where the problem is occurring. The increase has come from the developing world and in other places, but we're not a planet where country and the question. Becomes I think in my mind. Anyway, the debate has been necessarily about always about whether or not it's human contribution. It's about whether the public policies that are being advocated would be effective. So in light of the fact that another places carbon emissions continue to grow. And by the way, technology is moving us in the direction that those who support those measures want us to go anyway. So your view then Senator is that humans are the chief contributor to climate change in this recent period. My view is that that's what a lot of scientists say, I think there are others. That dispute what percentage of that is humans and not. I'm a policymaker. There's no way that I can never debate where they scientists are people who spend their whole life on that public policy. I can I can accept this. And that is that we're going to have a debate about human contribution because scientists are saying that, and you know, if you're saying something different. But if we're going to have that debate about whether certain law should be passed in order to alleviate what some scientists are a lot of scientists are saying is the cause of this that has to be balanced with the public interest and other topics like the economy in the like, okay. Well, we're we're out of time. We'll have to leave it there. Senator. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you. And we turn now to Maryland Senator Chris van Hollen who among other things is in charge of his party's efforts to elect more Democrats to the Senate this cycle. Welcome senator. I want to start where I left off with Senator Rubio you are on the environmental community and in the Senate. What did you make of the senator's remarks will look in the same week that we saw hurricane Michael flattened, the Florida, panhandle. We had this report from the world's leading climate scientists saying climate change is hurting us today. And it's only getting worse and the same time you have Trump administration a lot of Republicans who just want to put their head in the sand. They don't wanna hear the information, and we should start by not making things worse. This administration and Republicans in congress are actually rolling back auto emission standards, rolling back clean power plant rule. So let's stop making things worse. And we definitely need to take action to make Senator Rubio's point in the administration. Point. Which is why don't you come in? With all these regulations, you choke off the economic recovery that that America's in the middle of now. Well, the reality is we've had auto emission standards in place for many many years. And in fact, the auto industry has grown substantially the reality is that there are a lots of economic opportunities when it comes to investing in clean energy, and energy efficiency, and those are homegrown jobs. Wind solar these are homegrown jobs. These aren't jobs where you're importing oil from Saudi Arabia, for example, let me switch to politics a couple of weeks ago in the Senate people were writing about, hey, Democrats have a chance there writing that less these days. What happened? Well, what we've said from the beginning is this is a very tough political map for Senate Democrats probably the toughest we've seen in sixty years. The fact that people were talking about Democrats taking back a majority of the Senate shows, how strong we have been and what kind of momentum we've got so. I've said from day one that we have a credible path to a Democratic Senate Majority. It is a narrow path. And there are so many very tight seats that this is all about turnout at this point. Two things related to the cabin on nomination. I I wanna get your sense you talked to a number of your constituents who reached out to you during the confirmation process. And then you said they were their statements were reminders of how our society has let down survivors of sexual assault. For decades. Have you heard from or what have you heard from constituents in the wake of a confirmation? Well, I heard from more than fifty of my constituents out women who had experienced sexual assault sexual trauma years ago and had never told their own parents at the time in many cases, had not told members of their families today, and it was a powerful reminder of the progress we need to make in this country when it comes to sexual assault. So when you have the president is states at big rallies belittling, Dr Ford, he is belittling, although survivors of sexual assault.

"Folks. Don't don't don't misunderstand me here. I know Mr. Snerdley, Mr. Snerdley is worried about Susan Collins. He's saying why call it announced white. Why why make an announcement three o'clock you voted? Yes. To continue the process you voted. Yes. On the procedural vote. There can be only one reason to Kuala three o'clock announced say you're going to vote. No after after suggesting the process, you go forward your much shut down the process. I realize a lot of people think that that's what's that's what's in store here. And of course, I'm hearing is going to happen. I'm hearing from droves of you who say the proof is the timing that she's gonna do this after this program. Ends mean, it means Russia can't be anything. You're going to like, I'm getting emails that say you think that's right too. Sturdily says absolutely thanks. That's right as well. Well, we'll we'll save. I'm not I'm not going to withdraw my acknowledgement that I think she did the right thing. But I'm going to get to the phones because I've I've gone too many. I our this week without getting the phones that changes today, especially being open line Friday. So we'll go to Pleasanton, California. I with Chris Hello? Hello, let rush good to talk with you. This Monica McClain who was just speaking of the person that contacted this inclined to get her to possibly change your testimony. Yes, she's she's the same person. That's a boyfriend or Dr Ford mentioned in the letter he sent in talking about how. Heating, those coaching going on by Dr Ford on trying to get somebody to handle it polygraph. But yeah, that's another story, by the way. The boyfriends letter has yet to be reported in mainstream media, nor has the story of Monica McLean. Pressuring Leland Kaiser to change your test. Those two stories have not been reported ABC CBS NBC Washington Post, New York Times Associated Press people have not heard either of. And there's other things like, for example, doctor Ford mentioned in Senate testimony. She gave she mentioned Rehoboth, Delaware was where she was at. And that's the last known address of this. Monica mclean. Correct. Yes. Absolutely. When they wrote the letter when when when ballsy Ford wrote the letter, that's where she was. She was in re Rehoboth, Delaware with McLean. Yes. So here's my question. There's there's an emerging picture that there might be a lot going on. But beyond the scenes here that hasn't come out yet. I'm wondering if not is the Democrats oddly enough, we're not better off holding this vote now before more this comes out. Going to go through at the last minute change. What are the people are saying they're to vote changes? It suddenly it goes down. And of course. And then because all this is about to come out. It's not about to come out. That's the whole point you know, it, but it's not gonna come out. It hasn't come out yet. It's not gonna come out. Now. One thing it has the LeBron Kaiser pressure to change your testimony. That is in the FBI report. The Democrats have seen that Grassley referenced it and Grassley said there's a lot more. There are many more examples of balti- foreign witnesses being pressured to change testimony. The Democrats have seen all that. It doesn't change anything. This is not about the evidence. It never has been about the evidence. And if those two stories miraculously made the front page of the New York Times website in five minutes, and if ABC CBS NBC began to report all this. If it wouldn't change one democrat Senate vote. Democrats can't delay the vote anyway, that's up to McConnell, the turtle. The question is why wouldn't Republicans make a greater effort for it to come out? Why would it make a greater effort to? It's in the FBI report that Republicans and Democrats can see it. It's the the Monica McLean aspect is in the FBI report. They discovered combined knowledge none of Senator Grassley so forth. They're not mentioning, but we were just talking about. No, no, they're not. I can't tell you. Why? They're not mentioning it. Okay. Okay. Thank you. You bet. I'm wondering myself. Well, your questions are entirely legitimate. And they're rooted in pure common sense. You're sitting there thinking if the world knew this, it would change everything it shows that the ballsy Ford side is willing to commit perjury suborn perjury pressure witnesses to change their stories, which then could be said to conclude that there's not anything that ballsy Ford is saying that's reliable. But those two stories have not been seen by the American public at large. They've not shown up at Yahoo news. The Associated Press New York time CBS NBC CNN, and they won't. For exact reason, the stories are being suppressed, but the Democrats in the Senate. No, it doesn't matter. It's about the seriousness of the charge. It's not about the nature of the app..

"We blew it. So we cannot fix that. There's Democrats do not have the power to fix that. I'm sure you all listen to opening arguments like I do enough to know that there is just nothing we can do. It's not Democrats on need to fight harder or maybe if we hadn't focused on a thirty six year old allegation, we could have made the case that no, we couldn't have done. Any of that he was going to pass before the allegation is gonna get through his going to get through after the allegation. Doesn't matter the allegation. What I was going to say is at least even if next week or next month or whatever. We would have a Justice instead of Cavanaugh who is just as conservative at the very least he wouldn't be a fucking attempted rapist a misogynist. He wouldn't have been the result of a coordinated effort by Republicans rallying behind Trump, insulting Dr Ford, a woman of tremendous courage, a woman who got up there and bared her soul and answer it every fucking question and told her the truth appeared by by any objective measure to be making an effort to get out the truth to admit her limitations to not make anything up to not make a making like a far too ambitious story. She didn't go over overboard in anything. She had a clinical explanation for her memory. That makes perfect sense. She's a professional. She did everything right at the very least. We wouldn't have the insult of this person on the supreme court. So don't give me your well. They just nominate another person that's Justice, conservative, maybe even more concerned. First off, you don't really get more conservative than cabinet. There's almost no room for movement there, so I'm not tremendously worried about like a worse cabin. It's already the worst. That's how conservatives have it set up. They're all a ten out of fucking ten on the conservative meter. Now, that's all of them. They all are.

"In order to believe Dr Ford you had to suspend. Ability to reason. Given three different. Answers as to win the assault happening mid eighties early eighties. And all of a sudden actually was the summer in one thousand nine hundred eighty two after she lawyers up. You have to believe that she. Waited. Waited reeling till now to reveal that the individual who assaulted here was in fact, judge Cavanaugh. Never said anything anybody else. Although her husband now has circled back and said, oh, I remember her telling me during marriage therapy. Okay. We'd like to see the notes they won't return it they won't release the notes. So that's not believable. She can't remember key details about the night who invited her to the party how she heard about the party how she got to the party how she left the party where the house is exactly with any specificity. And of course, most importantly, how she left the party with whom she left the party how she traveled back home when she got back home. The alleged assault has not been corroborated by single person, including none of the people she's named including as well. Her lifelong girlfriend, Leland Kaiser that apparently is not changed based on reports today. He hasn't provided a consistent account of the alleged assault. And she had big trouble. Remembering important recent events. Like in her discussion with the Washington Post reporter, whether she actually gave portions of a therapist's notes to the report another says in July, the whole copy of the therapists notes or read from the therapists notes, she doesn't remember? She can't remember if she had an actual copy of therapists notes when she called the Washington Post or she had gone to her therapist's office and read the notes can't remember any of that. She won't provide the notes to the committee. She won't provide it to the committee. She can't remember the day that she had the polygraph. Now, this is very recent this what a month six weeks eight weeks ago, whether it was on the day, her grandmother passed away or not she can't remember if it was video or audio recorded, and the committee would like to know they want to see. In fact, she was traumatized during the course of the actually me lie detector tests, does she claims? He talks about the psychological impact. It had that she doesn't want to fly. She has difficulty flying. Now. We know that was a flat-out lie. Say that. Yes. A flat out lie. She's flown west coast, east coast, east coast to west coast. She's flown to Hawaii French Polynesia Costa Rica all over the world. But when she was asked to shop for a hearing. She couldn't fly. Although it is said that she was already on the east coast. She didn't know that the Senate Judiciary committee Republicans the majority had offered to go to California to interview her in any form. And. Why didn't she know? People say her lawyers must have withheld that information. Maybe the lowest didn't withhold the information. Maybe she just didn't give a forthright answer. We know from boyfriend. That she never mentioned Kavanagh's name. She never mentioned sexual assault in the six years that they live together and the few years before that that they dated. We know she had no problem with claustrophobia because she had an apartment that was five hundred square feet. That's a small apartment. That's a very small apartment. We know that she never mentioned Kavanagh's name to her boyfriend her live in boyfriend of six years. So you have to believe. Unbelievable. To believe her testimony. Against Brett cabinet. You have to believe the unbelievable you must suspend your reasoning. And now that I'd gone all through this. She's not the bubble lady. She came forward. She said, it was her civic duty. She's presented herself to the American people. And we get the judge sentenced not the only body that gets the judge you, and I get to judge, and we don't have to self censor. You have to be rude and hateful and all the rest. I'm not that. And we're not doing that. Now what he cavenaugh say that was so unbelievable or contradicted. Absolutely nothing that I'm aware of what that he may have more drinks one day than another day. He's the one who showed up with his calendars. He's the one who had witnesses who said he was never there. But you see the FBI didn't interview him or Ford. Now, according to Ford's lawyers who are very upset. And of course, the Democrats are one in the same. But that's not the nature of this investigation. It's not a criminal investigation. They testified in public under penalty of perjury. There's nothing else for them to say. So why do we continue to play footsie with the Democrats? We should play brass knuckles with the Democrats say enough already Mr. flake Emma's Collins of MS Murkowski, if you wanna throw him with the Democrats go ahead, we're having a vote. This is over. We are not going to participate in any further sham. We are not going to participate. Now in the trashing of the FBI. I'm not telling you about the senior people at the FBI. Now there trashing the FBI after lecturing us for eighteen months about the FBI. That's not the senior officials in the FBI who are doing. These interviews. These are special agents. I have no doubt. The hard working men and women in the FBI that the Democrats claim to but they hate all law enforcement. Let's be honest. So enough's enough. We don't need to deal. Honestly, we don't need to deal with people. Who are diabolical? Diabolical? That includes flake that includes Collins had includes mccaskey who brought us to this point. I guarantee you. If it were their husbands are flakes wife who are being treated this way. They wouldn't agree. Maybe we should extend this for a week. Why? What took place?

Christine Blasey Ford hasn't heard from FBI, lawyer says

"This newly ordered FBI investigation of supreme court nominee Brett cavenaugh. Remember, this is the probe in which according to President Trump. The F B I has free rein. Well, now, we're learning about the list of witnesses suggested by Senate Republicans, and apparently neither judge Cavin. I nor Christine Blasi Ford are on that list. Excuse me. They are not expected to be interviewed despite Dr Ford's attorneys telling reporters that they have reached out several times, and that they want Dr four to talk to the FBI, however, just a short time ago confirmation that investigators did speak today with this woman. Deborah Ramirez, another woman who accuses judge Kavanagh's sexual misconduct, but who did not give testimony on Capitol Hill. A source close to the FBI investigation says Ramirez today gave agents the names of other witnesses right cavenaugh strongly denies the accusations from both Ramirez and four now as for whether the FBI will have quote free rein at least two sources close to the investigation are doubting. That CNN was told today that the White House is working closely with Senate Republicans to steer the FBI investigation and keep its scope as narrow as possible White House. Correspondent for Sanchez is with us now Boris one makes those sources believe. So strongly that the FBI is actually working under some restriction. We'll those sources are indicating of the way that this process is playing out the White House, which was essentially compelled to launch this investigation by Zona Senator Jeff flake is sort of guiding the process, according to these sources of the White House with input from some Senate Republicans is maintaining that the focus should exclude certain subjects that judge break. Cavanaugh was grilled on during his Thursday testimony before the Senate Judiciary committee. Those sources are indicating that only a handful of interviews are going to take place of that questions about a brick Kevin was drinking habits in high school will be avoided something that Democrats again pressed him on during his testimony. Once the FBI concludes their investigation their interviews with the subjects they will end pass along the information to the White House. They don't come up with any conclusions themselves. Ultimately, what we're hearing from sources is that typically, that's the way this. Procedure is carried out, but some Democrats are raising red flags notably Senator Amy klobuchar of who definitely pressed judge Cavanaugh during the confirmation process. She's concerned that the White House may be having too much input. And exactly what the FBI is going to be asking. Now press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked about this on one of the Sunday morning talk shows, she says that the White House doesn't want to micromanage the FBI, but she didn't answer. Whether she knew if White House counsel, Don Mcgann, had specifically indicated to the FBI that they should interview certain people or not or if he could ask certain questions or not she said, she didn't know, and what does the word from President Trump about these developments is he saying anything about this investigation now in its third day. President Trump went in on Twitter yet again today already launching attacks at Democrats suggesting that they won't be happy, regardless of what the results of this investigation shows. Does he wrote quote? Wow. Just starting to hear the Democrats were only thinking of struck and delay are starting to put

"Dr Ford with what degree of certainty. Do you believe Brett cavenaugh assaulted? One hundred percent hundred percent high-drama riveting on Capitol Hill. There were people being choked up tears in. There is also a lot of anger and what? Now, let's go to our national correspondent bills in for Bill. Good morning. Good morning, Chuck. Well, yeah. What? Now that is the question, especially after you had a day yesterday filled with testimony from Dr Christine Blasi Ford who came off as a credible honest witness. You're there were some cloudy areas upper story and yet bread cabin all who again denied any involvement in any incident. Like this not just this specific incident. No reason not to believe his denials, and he of course, pointed to the lack of corroboration of any of these stories as well. So where now we're at the end of the day. I think we were about where we were at the beginning. A not knowing what the truth is here. I think. Kelly, and I would agree with you on that. We're not, you know, people on either side of made up their minds and a lot of us in the middle are like, yeah. I still don't know. What happened? They they both seem believable. I mean that is that is the case right now. Yeah. As we played in your audio there. Dr Ford saying she was one hundred percent sure, it was capital cabinet with an emotional and combative statement saying that it was not him. But he would not do this has never done anything like this. So once again, we have a rather deep divide setup between the Republicans and the Democrats not only on the judiciary committee, but the in the full Senate as well and the status remains up in the air, but this much we do know check and Kelly is that we will have a committee vote this morning. Chuck Grassley, the committee chairman is plowing ahead, even after the bar association called for a pause in this process in order to have an FBI investigation done. There will be a committee vote this morning at nine thirty. And then it will move on to the full Senate. So. Calling for an FBI investigation at this point is almost missed the shot. The I mean, they're going ahead with the vote anyway. So what's the point in continuing to call for the FBI investigation? Well, it hasn't been done before I with Clarence Thomas. There was a pause in the proceedings there were they decided to stop. They had a set of hearings and then had an investigation and continued on with more hearings after that. So I think they're looking back and saying look, why don't we do the same thing we did with Clarence Thomas when there was a tie vote in the committee with Clarence Thomas. And then they said that they would reschedule a boat a win. There were more hearings held so hearings held on Sept or ended on September. Twentieth of nineteen Ninety-one, then then we're reconvened on October eleventh for three more hearings, of course, Clarence Thomas ended up being confirmed. Now, what would happen even if there wasn't FBI investigation. What what would be different in their findings because they don't make a ruling or. Decision. They say this is what right down he said this. She said this and the statements that were already submitted to the committee where submitted under penalty of felony also. So it's not like they're carries anymore weight. Right. Yeah. I think the only thing that they can do is. It'll do a little more investigating into the witnesses involved over the potential witnesses involved and look for other witnesses who we may not have heard from maybe even get other statements from people who may have had knowledge of this or not just a more thorough investigation rather than comments from one or two people from the outside. Lindsey Graham went off yesterday said essentially, it was just a political hit job by the Democrats that they in essence used professor four to try to delay this nomination until after the midterms is that sticking do you think on Capitol Hill. Well, at one point I thought maybe Lindsey Graham saved the day for for Brett cabinet because Brett cabin all was getting a little too political for what a supreme court Justice should be even talked about a an orchestrated. Political hit an anger about the two thousand sixteen election. And the one thing that really hit home for me was when he said what goes around comes around. Well, do you want somebody who carries a political vendetta on the supreme court of the United States? So when Lindsey Graham jumped in and picked up that battle, I thought, okay. This may save the day here because that would be the better way to handle this as a cavenaugh should just let the Republicans on that committee assume that battle rather than he himself because then it looks like he's got a political agenda, and may have a political vendetta down the road is court Justice. So I thought that Lindsey Graham delivered a passionate speech that probably deserve to be to be made at that point billion. Let you run but quickly do you think there'll be a final vote next week in Willie get through? Well, I think there will be a fine of next week. Will he get through? This is gonna come down to the probably three individuals. Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Jeff flake, those are the people, and it really is kind of a shame that this whole. Situation is gonna come down to three individuals in the US Senate to decide whether he gets through am I really get through. Boy, that's one I'm not even gonna I'm not even gonna take that one on yet national correspondent Bill. Thanks so much Bill. You're welcome. Every weekend.

"Hairs? Dr Ford first of all just so we can level set. You know, you are not on track. You are not on trial. You are sitting here before members of the United States Senate judiciary committee because you had the courage. To come forward. Because as you have said, you believe it was your civic duty. I was struck in your testimony by what you indicated as your intention when you first let anyone associated with these hearings know about it. And what you basically said is you reached out to your Representative in the United States Congress hoping that person would inform the White House before judge Cavanaugh had been named? That's extremely persuasive about your motivation for coming forward. And so I wanna thank you. I want to thank you for your courage, and I wanna tell you. I believe you. I believe you. And I believe many Americans across this country. Believe you. And what I find striking about your testimony is you remember key searing details of what happened to you. You told your husband and therapist two of the most intimate of your confidence, and you told them years ago about this assault. You have shared your experience with multiple friends years after that, and before these hearings ever started, I know having personally, prosecuted sexual assault cases and child sexual assault. Cases that study after study shows trauma. Shame and the fear of consequences almost always 'cause survivors to at the very least delay reporting. If they ever report at all. Police recognize that prosecutors recognize that medical and mental health professionals recognize that. The notes from your therapy.

I'd like to shift gears and discuss the last several months, okay? In your statement. You said that on July sixth you had a quote sense of urgency to relate the information to the Senate and the president did you contact either the Senate or the president honorable before July six? No, I did not. I did not know how to do that. Okay. Prior to July six had you spoken to any member of congress. And when I say congress, I mean, the Senate or the house of representatives or any congressional staff members about your alligators. No. Why did you contact the Washington Post that on July sixth? So I was panicking because I knew the time line was short for the decision. And people were giving me advice on the beach people who don't know about. The prophecies, but they were giving me a basin. Many people told me you need hire a lawyer. And I didn't do that. I didn't understand why would need a lawyer. Somebody said call the New York Times called the Washington Post put it in animus tip go to your congress person. And when I weighed those options I felt like the best option was to try to do the civic route, which is to go to my congressperson who happens to be an issue. So I called her office. And I also put him the anonymous tip to the Washington Post and either, unfortunately, neither got back to me before the selection of the nominee. You testified that congresswoman issues office contacted you on July ninth set, right? They contacted me the date that the nominee was announced. So that seems like likely with how'd you talked to about your allegations? With anyone in her office before the date of July nine told the receptionist on the phone. On July tenth you texted the Washington Post again, which was really the third time. Is that right? Second date. Third time. Let's.

"As we hear from Dr Ford about her experience, there's been a great deal. A public discussion about the metoo movement today versus the year of the woman almost twenty seven years ago. But well, young women are standing up and saying no more our institutions have not progressed and how they treat women who come forward too, often women's memories and credibility, come under assault. In essence, they are put on trial and force to defend themselves and often read victimized in the process twenty seven years ago, I was walking through an airport. When I saw a large group of people gathered around the TV to listen to Anita hill. Tell her story what I saw was an attractive woman in a blue suit before an all male judiciary committee. Speaking of her experience of sexual harassment. He was treated badly accused of lying attacked and her credibility put to the test throughout the process today, Dr Christine blazey Ford has come forward to tell her story of being assaulted and fearing for her life when she was a teenager initially as I said, Dr Ford did not want to make her story public then within thirty six hours have coming forward. Republicans scheduled a hearing without talking tour or even inviting her to testify she was told she had to show up for the or the committee would move forward with a vote. It took a public outcry for them from the majority excuse me for the majority to back down and give her even a few days to come before the committee. Republicans also scheduled this hearing. With Dr Ford without having her allegations investigated by the FBI in one thousand nine hundred ninety worthwhile. Hills allegations were reviewed by the FBI as his the normal process and squarely within its jurisdiction. However, despite repeated requests, President Trump and the Republicans have refused to take this routine step and direct the FBI to conduct an impartial investigation. This would clearly be the best way to ensure a fair process to both judge cavenaugh and to Dr Ford in one thousand nine hundred ninety one the Senate heard from twenty two witnesses over three days today while rejecting an FBI investigation Republicans are refusing to hear testimony from any other witness, including Mark judge who Dr Ford identified as being in the room when the attack took place. Place, and we believe judge should be subpoenaed. So the committee can hear from him directly. Republicans have also refused to call anyone who could speak to the evidence that would support or refute Dr forts.

I suspect at some point the committee is going to vote to report his nomination out before the Senate where we'll have a debate and ultimately vote, and I believe he will be confirmed. The supreme court. You know, he he made his case last night on with Martha. He he just wants to be treated fairly and all this. He wants to see a fair process. Play out are Democrats willing to give him. No, of course, not. I mean, obviously, this wasn't an eleventh-hour ambushed by the Democrats on the committee think about what he has been through. He started off answering over thirty hours of questions in open session from Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Judiciary committee, they had closed sessions where they asked him questions. They submitted thirteen hundred questions for the record more than all previous supreme court nominees combined. Answer those been through six F B I background checks, and this has been incredibly open transparent process where Republicans have been very fair, the Democrats Democrats on the other hand get a letter piece of information back in July, which they decide to hang onto. And then unleash at the eleventh hour can try and delay and derail his nomination. They have not been fair this nominee at all. It's been a circus from the get-go from their standpoint. And it's very clear that they're doing everything they can to prevent him from going on the court withstanding that Senator Grassley has conducted a very fair process committee is going to here on.

"Dr Ford this was attempted rape. I believe her not only do women like Dr Ford who bravely comes forward need to be heard. But they need to be believed. Knowledge where the red tabbies? No. Because when you. She has. No, there's no enticement for her to come forward by the end of the week, if judge Cavanaugh decides he doesn't want to go through this. It isn't worth it. Maybe he can win. But he doesn't want an address to me. It wouldn't surprise me. If he chose to withdraw chose to back down joining us now is Joe digenova and Victoria Tensing. They happen to be married, but they are two of the greatest attorneys in the country and friends of mine as well. Joe's great to see you in New York last night. You see what they're doing to this this guy? No due process. No presumption of innocence. It's guilt by accusation. And I think people, you know, knowing the Democrats what they do every two and four years and elections Republicans are racist sexist misogynistic, and on and on and on, and then every supreme court nominee gets bored or treated like Clarence Thomas now in the case judge Cavanaugh, it's the same playbook every time. Yeah. Nothing has changed. And I must say, I I it is amazing to me what the Senator from Hawaii has said and done over the last forty eight hours this conduct by this United States. Senator has been an embarrassment to the institutions. Oh, you mean. You mean that men should shut up and sit down. Yes. And then her outrageous description as Bs although she didn't use BS use. The actual words at a gaggle of reporters outside the Senate chamber describing the way in which the Republican chairman was treating this so-called witness a witness that no one has ever met. No one has ever seen. No one has ever confirmed her story. No one knows if it's true. No one knows if it happened. No one knows if it's a segment of her imagination from therapy without denigrating her one bit. It is not it is not unfair to say that nothing absolutely nothing that she is alleged to have written on a piece of paper, which no one has ever seen except Diane finds dean. No one has ever corroborated a word of something. We have never seen just think of what we're saying. We've never seen the letter and it's never been quote corroborated. This is insanity. How is it at this late hour they've had it since July Victoria that. They tell you what the procedure is Sean because I think your listeners would want to know I've gone through these on the on the hill when I was working for Senator Goldwater. And here's what you're supposed to do. When a sensitive information, such as he beats his wife things like that or is taken dope. Even you know, he sniffs cocaine when something like that comes up in confirmation investigation. Then that's supposed to go in executive session. That's not supposed to be made public. Then this committee, either the chairman, however, they want to work it out decide how that's going to be investigated. They could either they could use the FBI, but more than likely they'll use your own investigators because the Democrats. Have their own investigators Republicans have theirs, and they're always former FBI guy. So I kept in the FBI anyway. Then they come back with the raw data. They don't make any evaluations. These investigators. They get raw data. They interview people. They come back and the committee decides again in executive session. Whether the information is credible if it's credible. They call it in the nominee. And they say I think he's got a problem may one withdraw or if it's not credible. They go on with an nation. They never have never smeared somebody in public. This is unprecedented. Well, now that we're hearing that the the woman wants to testify which is what the original position was and her lawyer had said that you would testify publicly under oath. But we've now heard from the New York Times the woman who accused judge cabin on in an apparent bid. I guess to jump start to go. She has told the Senate Judiciary committee that she would be prepared to testify next week so long as the senators offer terms that are fair and which ensure her safety examination. Well, I don't think that's going to be possible. That's just that's not how the system works. And look I think I do give credit to Senator Grassley and his team. I think they have rightly bent over backwards backwards to be accommodating to what could be a very sensitive situation for anybody to to handle they've offered that she could testify in private in public that they would even go to her wherever she happens to be and they have now the the bar keeps being raised. I need an FBI investigation. I the FBI doesn't conduct investigations. It's not a federal issue that they're dealing with your federal crime that dealing with here. The statute of limitations has long passed in in any event, but the FBI does not do investigations in confirmation hearings as we think of investigations they collect raw data, and it is a legislative function. So it's up to the committee to decide into evaluate the information. The FBI brings back when I look at how this is all been handled it, I think Susan Collins had this right of an I don't often agree with their Joe, but they had this since July. And then they're saying, no, no, no. We've got a hold back. Hold back. Why didn't they do anything in July? Why did Diane Feinstein meet privately with judge Cavin on numerous occasions and not bring this up? Why didn't she bring it up in the public hearings? Well, one of the things that comes out of this is a rather sitting in to the career of Dianne Feinstein, whether she's reelected or not it won't matter her influence in the Senate has been diminished exponentially by the politically. Corrupt manner in which she has conducted herself in this. She has insulted. The chairman Charles Grassley, who's one of the nicest people you would ever wanna meeting your life. An unbelievably good Senator one of the hardest working senators she has treated him shabbily. She has disrespected the rules and the procedures of the committee. She has lied in essence by omission to all the members of the committee, and she has refused to turn over a copy of the letter to chairman Grassley. I would I I must say I mean, she and the and the Senator from Hawaii should be censored for what they have done. I really believe that the United States Senate should not tolerate behavior by senators. Let me one of the other ways that we know this is political is right now, we have a a high ranking DNC official number two guy at the DNC Keith Ellison wants to be the attorney general of Minnesota. He's involved in a case. Where his girlfriend, and they claim they have tapes and audios and she released the doctor's report from 2017 that is consistent with her story. But right now, this this woman all these people going after judge all that from thirty six years ago. You don't hear a peep out of them as it relates to emotional and physical abuse of Keith Ellison, the allegation made by the girlfriend? I mean, you know, Kristen gillibrand out there saying, I I think what Republicans are doing is outrageous that creating a false choice. They trying to bully her into testifying. They're not they're trying to accommodate her in every way imaginable. And but you hear all these believe her I believe her I believe her and I'm thinking, wow. I don't think Diane Feinstein had a moment of clarity and says, I don't know if this is true or not I don't have all the information. I wasn't there. And then with the case. Allison's girlfriend is going to have to get in line because there's a long double standard line behind. Juanita broaddrick. Kathleen, Willey, Paula Jones. There's a whole bunch of women out there that if you're a democratic meals, none of these rules apply to you. And I fear all of you. Mothers out there. Fear for your son's is they're not Democrats because it's going to happen to them. And by the way, isn't it? Isn't it funny that they're having second thoughts about having demanded that Al Franken resign all of these women's groups are saying, well, you know, maybe we went overboard, maybe we shouldn't have done that. This is fascinating that Sean. You're absolutely right. It's not a double standard. It's a triple standard quadruple standard. They are shameless their unin Barrett by their intellectual dishonesty, they care about one thing. Howard and keeping cavenaugh off the court the Republicans better get him on the court, and they better get him on the court fast. Well, I mean, they'll have an opportunity assuming this woman comes in next week. They could have the vote, right thereafter. I'd also argue that in the subsequent thirty six years that you could talk to other women sixty five of them that do him at that time, and and paint, a very different picture of this man, you can talk to as high school colleagues or or kids who went to school with and speller students in college and law school and in the Bush. Administration and women that have clerked for him over the years. Everybody can do that. But I don't see any outrage from these very same people. But you have Keith Ellison is being accused of domestic physical emotional violence against his old girlfriend. Well, actually tweeted that the Democratic Party, quote didn't believe her claims despite what is out there, including a doctor's report that she had told this doctor about the abuse in 2017. She's not believed she's not even discussed. Nobody's saying anything against him. Standard of the of the accusation here. She doesn't know when it occurred. She doesn't know where it occurred. She didn't tell anybody else at the time. And the only two witnesses that she said could verify it has both said it didn't happen. I mean, do we ever presumption of innocence or not in this country? And why is it important not for Republicans? Well, I think you're both right, Joe digenova and Victoria Tensing. Thank you both for being with us. We really appreciate it. And we'll talk soon eight hundred nine four one Sean is our toll free telephone number. We're doing the show live from Vegas tonight. Hannity on the road will be at the rally. We're live six to seven. The president will be on stage at seven o'clock. We have an interview with set up with the president will say more about that. Hey, I want to.

And then every supreme court nominee gets barked or treated like Clarence Thomas. Now in the case judge Cavanaugh, it's the same playbook every time nothing has changed. And I must say, I I it is amazing to me what the Senator from Hawaii has said and done over the last forty eight hours this conduct by this. United States Senator has been an embarrassment to the institutions. Oh, you mean. You mean that men should shut up and sit down. Yes. And then her. Outrageous description as Bs although she didn't use BS use. The actual words at a gaggle of reporters outside the Senate chamber describing the way in which the Republican chairman was treating this so-called witness a witness that no one has ever met. No one has ever seen. No one has ever confirmed her story. No one knows if it's true. No one knows if it happens. No one knows if it's a figment of her imagination from therapy without denigrating her one bit. It is not it is not unfair to say that nothing absolutely nothing that she is alleged to have written on a piece of paper, which no one has ever seen except Diane finds dean. No one has ever corroborated a word of something. We've never seen just think of what we're saying. We've never seen the letter and it's never been quote corroborated insanity. How is it at this late hour they've had it since July Victoria that. They have to tell you what the procedure is Sean because I think your listeners would want to know I've gone through these on the on the hill when I was working for Senator Goldwater. And here's what you're supposed to do. When a sensitive information, such as he beats his wife things like that or is taken dope. Even you know, he sniffs cocaine when something like that comes up in an in an confirmation investigation, then that's supposed to go in executive session. That's not supposed to be made public. Dan, this committee, either the chairman, however, they want to work it out decide how that's going to be investigated. They could either they could use the FBI, but more than likely they'll use your own investigators because the democrat. Have their own investigators and the Republicans have theirs, and they're always former FBI guys. So it's like having the FBI anyway, then they come back with the raw data. They don't make any evaluations. These investigators. They get raw data. They interview people. They come back and the committee decides again in executive session. Whether the information is credible if it's credible. They call in the nominee, and they say, hey, I think he's got a problem may one withdraw or if it's not credible. They go on with an nation. They never have never smeared somebody in public. This is unprecedented. Well, now that we're hearing that the the woman wants to testify which is what the original position was and her lawyer had said that you would testify publicly under oath. But we've now heard from the New York Times the woman who accused judge cabin on in an apparent bid. I guess to jump start negotiations has told the Senate Judiciary committee that she would be prepared to testify next week. So long. The senators offer terms that are fair and which ensure her safety. Examination. Well, I don't think that's going to be possible. That's just that's not how the system works. And look I think I do give credit to Senator Grassley and his team. I think they have rightly bent over backwards backwards to be accommodating to what could be a very sensitive situation for anybody to to handle they've offered that she could testify in private in public that they would even go to her wherever she happens to be and they have now the the bar keeps being raised. I need an FBI investigation. I the FBI doesn't conduct investigations. It's not a federal issue that they're dealing with your federal crime that dealing with here. The statute of limitations has long passed in in any event, but the FBI does not do investigations in confirmation hearings as we think of investigations they collect raw data, and it is a legislative function. So it's up to the committee to decide into a valuate the information, the FBI brings back, you know, when I look at how this has all been handled it, I think Susan Collins had this right of and I don't often agree with their Joe, but they had this since July. And then they're saying, no, no, no. We've got a hold back. Hold back. Why didn't they do anything in July? Why did Diane Feinstein meet privately judge Cavin on numerous occasions and not bring this up? Why didn't she bring it up in the public hearings? Well, one of the things that comes out of this is a rather a fitting end to the career of Dianne Feinstein, whether she's reelected or not it won't matter her influence in the Senate has been diminished exponentially by the politically. Erupt manner in which she has conducted herself in this. She has insulted. The chairman Charles Grassley who is one of the nicest people you would ever wanna meeting your life. An unbelievably good Senator one of the hardest working senators she has treated him shabbily. She has disrespected the rules and the procedures of the committee. She had lied in essence by omission to all the members of the committee, and she has refused to turn over a copy of the letter to chairman Grassley. I would I I must say I mean, she and the and the Senator from Hawaii should be censured for what they have done. I really believe that the United States Senate should not tolerate might the behavior by senators. Let me one of the other ways that we know this is political is right now, we have a. A high ranking DNC official number two guy at the DNC Keith Ellison wants to be the attorney general of Minnesota. He's involved in a case where his girlfriend, and they claim they have tapes and audios and she released the doctor's report from 2017 that is consistent with her story. But right now, this this woman, the all these people going after judge Cavanaugh that from thirty six years ago. You don't hear a peep out of them as it relates to emotional and physical abuse of Keith Ellison, the allegation made by the girlfriend? I mean, you know, Kristen gillibrand out there saying, I I think what Republicans are doing is outrageous that creating a false choice. They're trying to bully her into testifying. They're not fully anyway, they're trying to accommodate her in every way imaginable. And but you hear all these I believe her I believe her I believe her and I'm thinking, wow. I don't think a Dianne Feinstein had a moment of clarity and says, I don't know. If this is true or not, I don't have all the information. I wasn't there. And then with the case. Allison's girlfriend is going to have to get in line because there's a long double standard line behind. Juanita broaddrick. Kathleen, Willey Pala Jones, there's a whole bunch of women out there that if you're a democratic male, none of these rules apply to you. And I fear all of you. Mothers out there. Fear for your son's is they're not Democrats because it's going to happen to them. And by the way, isn't it? Isn't it funny that they're having second thoughts about having demanded that Al Franken resign all of these women's groups are saying, well, you know, maybe we went overboard, maybe we shouldn't have done that. This is fascinating that your, Sean. You're absolutely right. It's not a double standards. It's a triple standard a quadruple standard. They are shameless their unin Barrett by their intellectual dishonesty, they care about one thing. Howard and keeping cavenaugh off the court the Republicans better get him on the court, and they better get him on the court fast. Well, I mean, they'll have an opportunity Suming. This woman comes in next week. They could have the vote, right thereafter. I'd also argue that in the subsequent thirty six years that you could talk to other women sixty five of them that do at that time, and and paint, a very different picture of this man, you can talk to high school colleagues or or kids who went to school with and speller students in college and law school and in the Bush. Administration and women that have clerked for him over the years. Everybody could do that. But I don't see any outrage from these very same people. But you have Keith Ellison is being accused of domestic physical and emotional violence against his old girlfriend. Well, actually tweeted that the Democratic Party, quote didn't believe her claims despite what is out there, including a doctor's report that she had told this doctor about the abuse in two thousand seventeen she's not believed. She's not even discussed. Nobody's saying anything against him. Standard of the of the accusation here. She doesn't know when it occurred. She doesn't know where it occurred. He didn't tell anybody else at the time. And the only two witnesses that she said could verify it has both said it didn't happen. I mean, do we ever presumption of innocence or not in this country? And why is it important not for Republicans? But I think you're both right, Joe digenova and Victoria Tensing. Thank you both for being with us. We really appreciate it. And we'll talk soon eight hundred nine four one Sean is our toll free telephone number. We're doing the show live from Vegas tonight. Hannity on the road will be at the rally. We're live six to seven. The president will be on stage at seven o'clock. We have an interview with set up with the president will say more about that. Hey, I want to.

"Beltway. I am hughhewitt. Thank you for listening. Please to welcome back. Now, the Senate Judiciary committee chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa Senator Grassley, thank you for joining me this morning. Hugh. I'm always lead to be with you, and you've had me on frequently era recently. And I thank you for doing that. I like to talk to you, why appreciate your candor and your response of this. Let's get right to well. The hearing on Monday be televised. Yeah. And will only be two witnesses on Monday. Yes. Who's gonna go? I have made up her mind. But I assume that that the doctor Ford would have Dr Ford accepted, and she is agreed to come. No. We have reached out to her in the last thirty six hours. Three or four times by Email and we've not heard from them. So it kind of raises the question do they want to do they want to come to the public hearing or not? And the reason we're having a public hearing is obviously well number one is accusations. Like, this these are consideration and looking into and that's what the purpose of the hearing is and we wouldn't be having this hearing. If it wasn't for the fact that Dr Ford told the Washington Post and other people publicly that she wanted to testify, and we also had judge Cavanaugh even before we even before we requested him to testify. He said he was willing to testify as of Sunday night. I had that message. So we we still haven't heard from Dr Ford. So do they want to have the hearing or not? We're we're delaying the vote strictly to get all the facts out a table if Dr Ford declines to attend we'll judge cavenaugh appear anyway. Well, first of all, we gotta look at fire. We're having the hearing we're having the hearing because the accusations accusations that legitimately ought to be looked into about a candidate for the supreme court, and and it was raised questions. What would be the purpose of the hearing? If the doctor doesn't want to respond. Assume for a moment that both Dr Ford, and and judge Cavanaugh come. We'll each Senator on the committee received one or two rounds of questions. I can't answer that at this point. Because we haven't worked at out. But it's something we generally work out in a bipartisan way. And so far, we haven't had a lot of communication with the Democrats staff because you know, we're taking testimonials from judge cavenaugh last night and. For transcript like we normally do when you follow up on an FBI. Research that they do, and there's some holes laughed, and of course, the FBI I didn't know about this. When they reported the White House the information that they collected for the White House to make a determination. If judge Cavin on should be presented to the Senate. Then we feel that in what isn't there and something new comes up like Dr Ford news comes up, then we have our own investigators fill in those gaps. So we went to Dr. Judge cavenaugh last night. It's usually a bipartisan cooperation. Efforts to ask questions and they didn't want to participate. So I when when you want to get all the information out in the table. Why would they miss any opportunity to participate? And then this further aggravates the fact that we've we've contacted Dr Ford's lawyer for Dr Ford to do a transcript, and you would think get get all this information out. That's all purpose. What we're trying to do. Here is get to the bottom of whether or not. These accusations are have to be evaluated. Senator Grassley, do you believe your democratic colleagues are obstructing a full and fair inquiry into Dr Ford's accusations. I would rather put it in a bigger scale. We've seen all the arguments about documents going on for two and a half months. I think that some of their requests have been outrageous and stalling and particularly the fact that so many of them said they're going to vote. No, how much how much more do you need to know devote? No now in regard to Dr Ford, even if they were stalling I if I wanted to say they're stalling, and I'm not saying that in this case, but I do say about the document requests. And all that. But on this end since I've got a responsibility to make sure these accusations are investing are investigated by my staff now Senator Grassley, if Dr Ford doesn't respond, but then subsequently response that she will accept a hearing later for you allow her or her lawyer to control the timing of her appearance what we're taking things step by step. But I don't know why you would need more time. She wants to talk to she told us. She wanted to talk to us. And you would think that the sooner the better. Now, it has been suggested that because all members of the Republican side are white men that you ought to appoint a special counsel to conduct the questioning and professor Ford, should she appear say someone like former Senator who was a new chick New Hampshire attorney general any consideration to that Senator Grassley, I would say that everything could be considered now and. All those things are being taken into consideration. So I don't I don't really. In other words, you're raising legitimate questions that are still in our mind. And so these details are still being worked out have you discussed. There is a great concern that because all of the Republicans are men and some are older Ben Sasse, I don't think shaving yet. But many of you are older that there will be insensitivity or indifference to professor for do you think that is a real danger to the Republicans? Well, journalists are very insensitive.

"Kavanagh's accuser, Christine. Blasi Ford say that she will not testify publicly before the Senate Judiciary committee before the FBI or other investigators investigate her sexual assault allegation. The letter they sent tonight to committee chairman, Chuck Grassley, speaking of death, threats directed at Dr Ford E mail hacking online harassing. We're open a here from German Grassley or other committee members tonight the back now with David Gergen, John dean and lower coats. So Laura, if both Ford and cavenaugh stick to their stories and there isn't some kind of investigation it basically just and both testify publicly. It just ends up being a question of who the Senator is believe. This is not a fact finding investigation. They're really a political panel. The role is supposed to be in this evidence in this event to say, who do we believe credibility assessment? When you have a he said, she said, what would help everyone? If you actually had corroboration on either side, either bullshit the credibility of the accuser or of the person who is accused. And so the investigation as the attorney for Dr Ford said was the hearings should not be a substitute for an investigation. It should not be the only source at these senators have to assess the credibility. And in fact, we do this all the time in courtrooms I used obsessed specialize in delayed reporting sexual assault cases where you had. He said, she said, or he said, he said scenarios, and you had to do was to bolster your case and the credibility of your witnesses memory and the actual occurrence by saying, one else can I use to corroborate him that required wasn't just say a whim. It required it full investigation and it took time to do so John. I mean, doesn't the. Senate have its own team of investigators that theoretically could investigate this. I mean, they can put people under oath to congress is a crime. So would it be acceptable for the judiciary committee to handle the investigation. It's possible Anderson, but these are also partisan staffs. The majority has it staff, the minority has its staff and never does the twain meet. So that would be a partisan investigation inherently and to just follow up on Laura sh, there is cooperation here. We have prior consistent statements by Dr Ford when she talked to her analyst. So there is something there and she told her husband is well and naming cavenaugh by name at that time. So there is some cooperation, David, is there criticize the argument that this call from Democrats for an FBI investigation is a delay tactic because there are other bodies. I, you know, theoretically that could investigate besides the the, the FBI, the president's made the point. Look, the Democrats could have wrought this up earlier, does Senator Feinstein. I think it's clear now Anderson. The Republicans have point this should have been brought up earlier and some fashion so that it could be done as part of the regular process. And we wouldn't have this very straight job. Episode right now. So I think the Republicans generally have said, let's have hearing that would know nobody expected that forty-eight hours ago, but they wanna have a hearing the fourth. So I do think that they have taken some steps, but this vital last step about who's going to investigate is is, is is crucial to the outcome. What's most important for the country here Anderson is when this is all said and done. If if judge Kavanagh's going on the supreme court and it's going to tip the balance of the court for years to come, it's really a sensual that he go forward without a big cloud over him and without a sense that he'd been re routed through on a partisan basis that both judge have offer in fairness to him. And in fairness to her that there is some kind of thorough impartial investigation to get at the facts and get as far down the road. As we can determine industry, we may not ultimately get there, but that's why an investigation which is routine again by the FBI is so crew. Sial here. I cannot say a often enough of that when all of a sudden done to have judge cavenaugh go up there and join Clarence Thomas. You have to people who've been accused of sexual harassment on the court, deciding whether Roe v Wade should be sustained or not, and pressing ought to rule that is not helpful. Situation is really important. So the for for Judge Kevin for the court, they take clear way this and getting investigation is in judge Kavanagh's interest as much as is in and professor..
