"Once again to the Jim Bohannon show on Westwood One. I'll be your host all night tonight, again, McGraw Hill haven, filling in for Jim Bohannon and today was a day. Thursday, September twenty seven two thousand eighteen that we will be talking about for many many years. There will be books written. There will be courses in universities taught about today. We have it covered from just about every angle tonight. I let's get you caught up because many many of you were probably working and didn't catch the unbelievable testimony in the Senate confirmation hearings for Brett cavenaugh to get you caught up with what happened. Let's go to Kristen Holmes. This is a circus. Deny allegations of sexual assault. I love this charge surpreme court nominee shouted. I wanted to be here that day times fought back tears. As he testified in front of the Senate Judiciary committee. I'm not questioning the doctor Ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time. But I've never done this accuser. Christine Blasi Ford. Also adamant I believe he was going to rape me. I tried to yell for help. When I did Brett put his hand over my mouth stopped me from yelling with what degree of certainty. Do you believe Brett cavenaugh assaulted one hundred percent longtime sex crimes prosecutor, Rachel Nickell again for the all male Republican committee member tempting to poke holes in memory of a can't give the exact date Cavanaugh insisting the allegations are part of a smear campaign. Why aren't you also asking the FBI to investigate more families family's been destroyed by the Senator destroyed Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, blaming Democrats. This is unethical sham since I've been in politics. A Senate Republicans work to see if they have the votes to confirm their nominee to the supreme court having off emphatic he still wants the job, but you'll never get me to quit on Capitol Hill. I'm Kristen Holmes reporting. All right mill heaven here filling in for Jim jimbohannon now news, of course, is breaking all night long because well, the vote is not secure. It's still up in the air. We go live now to Westwood One. News correspondent, Linda Kenyon, Linda, you are in Washington set the scene force. What's the mood like? Well, as you describe it's been a pretty wild ride on Capitol Hill today, there was nine hours of testimony very emotional at times, very angry and just quite a sight to behold into witness. It was one of the more amazing hearings. I've had the opportunity to cover I will say that. When the hearing was over. There was still some question about what would happen tomorrow and the Senate Republicans the entire caucus not just the Republicans who are members of the Senate Judiciary committee decided that they were going to have an evening meeting a late night meeting that they would all together in a room somewhere and decide what their next move would be. And now, we know what it is. They decided that they will go full steam ahead, and they will have a vote in the committee tomorrow. So there was some doubt after Dr Christine Blasi four testified earlier in the day as to whether the Republicans would in fact, go ahead with the earlier plan to have a vote because her testimony was if I might say, very damaging to break Kavanagh's case. But after Brett Kavanagh testified hours later in the afternoon before the committee. The Republicans seem to be a bit more light in their step a little bit more, brighter, apparently that translated into that caucus meeting behind closed doors later this evening where they decided to go ahead with the vote. Can we look into the tea leaves at all by them calling this vote? Do they have an idea of how Murkowski Collins flake mansion did they have any idea how they're going to vote and are they tipping their hands? Because they're calling this vote tomorrow. Well, it's important to point out that this is just the committee votes at the committee can vote its recommendation to the full Senate. It's a risky move. Because they really don't know how Collins Rakowski mansion and flake will vote at this point because they haven't said themselves. However, they're putting this on the committee tomorrow because according to Senate rules the clock has to start ticking for a certain number of hours before can be voted on the floor. And the Republicans are feeling a lot of pressure to get Kavanagh confirmed before the first Monday in October when the new supreme court term begins. So if they set the vote in the committee tomorrow nine thirty eastern time. Then what's the clock starts ticking? There will be a series of procedural votes that have to be performed the first vote will be on Saturday. It will be a vote that just requires fifty. And then after that, there's more procedural votes and this entire process, which is required. Under Senate rules will expire probably at the earliest Monday night. Maybe if they agree you back time, which I doubt it might be Monday afternoon. So that means a final vote in the US Senate on the nomination of Brett cabin for the US supreme court could come this week early this week, and we will put this matter to rest one way or the other Senator flake was one of the last senators to speak. He didn't ask a lot of questions had some heartfelt comments. But you could almost see the anguish and the torture in his face. He's going to be one of these votes that it's going to turn on. And you could just see the. Anguish in his face over over his decision. Yes, he has suffered a lot of anguish throughout this entire process. In fact, he made an emotional speech on the Senate floor yesterday where he appealed to senators to return to civility he basically said all of the political rhetoric that has surrounded this cabinet nomination and other issues prior to the cabinet nomination. Have really poisoned the well in the US Senate, and he said, we can do better. He said that you have to realize that we have lit a match and do we really know how close the powder keg is. So it was it was a interesting way of of describing the situation, but I have to say a lot of senators agreed with him. In fact, a lot of Democrats cross the island shook hands with him after that speech. So it's not surprising that he was anguished today in the committee because he is one of the senators who has really been a fighting for full disclosure and. He said he wouldn't vote unless there was a committee hearing, and like the one that we had today. Linda Kenyon is Westwood One. News correspondents at Capitol Hill. Linda, thanks for your insight. Have a good night. Thank you. In here filling in for Jim Bohannon. Our first guest tonight is gonna be the same guests as we had last night. He is the best in the business. He's a former White House staff assistant in the Gerald Ford. White house. He is currently a seamless university law professor and one of the best in the business trying to figure this stuff out Greg Willard, welcome back to the Jim Bohannon show. Good evening McGraw. I had a very prominent lawyer that you know, and I know that told me tonight that. Conservative lawyer who said there's no crying in confirmation hearings and say what you want about judge Cavanaugh that his impassioned political opening statement hurt him with the true believers that the judges should be impassioned. Arbiters of the law and not bring any passion to their decisions. Well with all due respect to the the lawyer you talk to I disagree. The the notion that the emotion that we saw today in the Senate Judiciary committee from both witnesses. But as the judge cavenaugh would somehow carry into how he would comport himself if he's confirmed next week as a supreme court Justice. I don't think there's any connection. Secondly McGraw as we talked about last night. This exercise regrettably, but it's the reality. This was not a search for the truth today. This was a search for two Republican votes. Period. Full stop and. Some of our listeners on the Republican side may not like to face that reality. Some on the Democrats may not like to face a reality. But at the end of the day, we're talking about two votes, and if the motion from Dr Ford and the motion from judge cavenaugh. Affects the votes of the senators so be it. And that that is the processes as we've talked before there are one hundred senators, and they will vote as they individually decided to vote there's no criteria those no constitutional fresh meals. They have to meet and emotion may be part of the calculus wonder more, the senators use McGraw, Greg Willard. We're just getting started. We have you for the full hour. We'll take some phone calls later on in the hour. Greg Willard is a former White House staff.
