What steps they took to undermine the political process and put a thumb on the scale and favor one political candidate over the other Tennessee, Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn was one of the. Senators questioning attorney general Bill bar today. Welcome. Thank you so much. So a big topic of conversation. Among some of your democratic colleagues today was the attorney general's representation of the findings in the Miller report. Do you think that bars four page summary fairly reflected the findings of the special counsel? Yeah. When you look at so report, which people can now get this report. They can read it what the attorney general did was to put full word an accounting of what was in that report. And he offered for Mr. Muller to be able to review that before he sent it out. Mr. Muller did not. And now you're hearing that there was a a back and forth. But let's leave that conversation to Mr. bar, and Mr. Muller, well that conversation is now widely public. I mean, how do you square the concerns Muller raised in his leg? Letter a letter that was released today. A letter that he sent to bar and these concerns let me read them out to you here. I'll just quote bar summary, quote, did not fully capture the context nature and substance of this office work and conclusions end, quote, he goes on to say this threatens to undermine public confidence in the outcome of investigations. Are you taking issue with the special counsels viewpoint expressed in his letter you had general bar today? Say that many of the problems were with how the media had represented the report and general bar like any of us cannot control what the media is going to say or the opinion that they are going to express with Ad Council. Said in his letter that he felt misunderstandings resulted from Bill bars for page summary misunderstandings. That may happen yet. Ten lawyers in a room, you're going to have twelve different opinion. Wins. Do you wanna see Robert Mueller testified before congress? You know, there are some that would like to see him come and testify. I think most people say look the report is filed. What more are you going to learn? Well, how do you feel would you object to him testifying before congress the American people and tennesseans spine large will say, look, let's get to work on some issues less make certain that government is accountable, and then let's move onto dealing with transportation with health care with keeping the economy going they like to talk about brighter futures for their families. And those are the things that are there emphasis, the Muller report has been filed and they're ready to see us do some work that is important to them. Well, given that given that there are so many real world concerns that people have that voters have the chair of the judiciary committee Lindsay Graham has said that he wants to. Investigate the origins of the Mueller investigation. You have just said look it's time to move on. The investigation is over there is real work to be done on real issues. Do you think what Senator Graham is proposing is a productive use of time and resources? You know, it's consistent to say. The report is there in the findings are there in. It's also consistent to say. Let's hold the government agencies accountable. And if there are bad actors, let to deal with these bad actors, so you think it's a productive use of. They they want to know how we got to this point. So that no presidential candidate democrat or Republican ever sees something like this happened to them. So you would like to see an investigation of the investigation. You do think that's productive user is. We know that that actors are rooted out and that we are going to be well served by individuals. Who realize we are a nation of laws that we will abide by the rule of law again to you were going to have law enforcement there that is to uphold the law, Marsha Blackburn is a Republican Senator from Tennessee, she sits on the judiciary committee. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you so much..

"Senator dick Durbin from Illinois. As way, then his his is not happy with McCain's explanation for lying yesterday morning. Turban appeared on MSNBC reacting to McCain's explanation for lying to investigators about leaking information to the press. And McCabe is said numberous times in this. Cockamamie book tour of his that when I served as deputy director. I was one or two people in the FBI who have the authority by FBI policy to interact with the media and decide what information as an organization we shared with the media. I don't consider any of the authorized dissemination of information. I was involved in over. My course of deputy director to be leaks. They are not leaks. Well, dick, turbans said that McCabe explanation doesn't satisfy him is I have to say, I'm still struggling with the fact that after twenty years in working in the FBI really taking close look at the questions and answers and making life and death decisions that his explanation doesn't really satisfy me as to why he faltered in this moment when he was being asked about his own conduct. Translation, I don't believe this guy. And I don't know why when it comes to explaining his own behavior. He can't just own up and admitted anything well that's not hard to figure out. The coup is still underway. And as long as the coup is still underway. The people in the coup conducting it cannot admit to have done anything wrong. They have to basically signal that everything they've done is justified. Because of the importance of getting rid of Donald Trump. I asked for a little montage of how the media has been treating or did react originally to the Justice mallet hoax, and we've we've put one together here, and it's just a review it, there's nothing really earth shattering here.

"That was already tried. It didn't work. What's the alternative? Twelve. Talk radio twelve ten WPA. Well, I think it's obvious. This is a different different kind of political environment. A lot of people are blaming it on Trump because well, he's easy to blame for everything and anything, you know, blame it on Trump. Based on the cavenaugh hearings. I think you the best part of last week. Was listening uninterrupted to Democrats talk. And usually. And we said this before whether it's Maxine Waters course, she wasn't. She's not on the Senate committee. But when you listen to people. Some of them talk like Senator dick Durbin. And some of the other folks that were speaking last week. You realize not only how out of touch they are. But they're really not focused on you. They're focused on their election. And to me, I I would say last week. Especially after Kavanagh's testimony. I think the Democrats hurt themselves last week. Because they just I think they went over the line with Cavanaugh. I don't think they had enough with those accusations. And you could almost sense the glee. It was almost like this is it we're gonna get we're gonna get and they didn't get them. Because I think most Americans see that and say, wow, anybody can accuse anybody of anything but to hear like Cory Booker, the grandstanding. He was doing. Oh my gosh. That was awesome. I love it. I love it. When Cory Booker is given ten minutes to speak and he's seventeen minutes into Mr Chairman. I just have a little more to say, I just want to say I and me a few more times. Obama did it. It's hysterical. Anyway. Politics are so out of whack this is the best example. And it's also the most entertaining, I'm about to share with you the commercial. Made by the opponent of a GOP candidate in Arizona. The GOP candidate in Arizona. He says right on his website. He says it on his website. I was raised in a family of nine or ten. I forget siblings, and he goes seven Democrats. No ten he goes, I was raised in a family. Would there were ten of us ten kids? He goes seven are democrat to our Republican in one is an independent, well, the democrat party and our Zona found they went and got six of his democrat. Brothers and sisters to make a campaign ad in support of his opponent and against him. Here's what it would sound like Paul gosar, the congressman. Isn't doing anything to help rural America posed absolutely not working for his district. If they care about healthcare. They care about their children's healthcare say would hold him to account if they care about jobs, they would hold him to account if he actually cared about people in rural areas of his brothers and sisters starts to secure imagined for better access to healthcare. I better. I bet he would be researching what is the most inciteful water policy to help the environment of Arizona sustain itself and be successful. And he's not listening to you. And he's doesn't have your interests at heart. My name is Tim gosar David gosar race. Go Joan gosar, Justin gosar, Jennifer, go. I'll go stars. My brother, my brother, and I endorse Dr rail wholeheartedly endorsed, Dr David Brill for congress. Dr David Brielle. And I approve this message, can you imagine? Wow. But to me that I don't even know to me. This is another example of the Democrats going over top over the rails. To me that it doesn't if it was one person. And it's all petty stuff. It's it's kind of made up stuff. You know, if you really cared. He do this. If you if your brother was so bad. That you didn't want to see him in office, and if you had a legitimate basis, or if you had the grounds to say something destructive about him, and it could be backed up. I could understand it like don't don't let my sister run for congress because of her addiction or whatever these are just five Trump hating democrat activist that happened to be from the same family as a GOP candidate. And the Democrats probably thought this is gonna take this guy out. But it's not what's happening is there are talk radio host in Philadelphia talking about how over the top Democrats are that half their family would take sides against them. Here's the other part. None of this is pleasant for any of us. It's horrible to have to do this to speak up against my brother. If brings sadness to me. This isn't just about Paul. Family. I think my brother has traded a lot of the values. We had our kitchen table. I couldn't be quiet any longer. Oh, God it any of us. Be stand up for our good name. This is not who we are.

"Handle here on a Friday mornings number twenty eight rather auspicious Friday are the big news this morning had to do with the Senate Judiciary committee vote, which is actually going to happen at ten thirty our time the final vote, which moves the nomination of break cabinet onto the floor of the Senate. Oh, that's going to be a fun one. When they've senators go crazy on that. Anyway, there was emotion by Senator Blumenthal this morning to delay. The vote pending the subpoenaing of more judge who you know is involved in all of this. Or is accused accused stated that he was a witness to all this. He denied it. Anyway, that motion was denied and Grassley the Senate chairman, I has been said that the vote will take place ten thirty this morning. In the meantime, the centers have not stopped talking. All I'm saying exactly what they did yesterday. Except longer versions of what they said. Yesterday extraordinary thing is five democratic senators half the committee walked out right after the motion was denied to delay. The vote just walked out while the committee was still in session, and they were still talking and then held an impromptu press conference, ripping into the Republicans. Arguing that it was a crammed down that this was a shame a disgrace. Which is a matter of fact, what break Cavanaugh said yesterday. Of course, arguing the other side. So let me go through a few of the big moments from the hearings yesterday. And as you know, it was only Ford and cavenaugh and this had to do with the allegations that came in after all the hearings had been done all after the rather lengthy hearings and investigation, which always happens whenever there's this court nominee. There were three accusations actually one at the time that the hearing was scheduled and so. You knew it was gonna be political. Absolutely. It was Christine blazey Ford talking about what happened to hurt that Brig cavenaugh attempted to rape her and she she came on. And they both were credible. By the way, both were completely believable. Which means that they didn't even have to show up. Because it's even it's even Steven. So she started during her testimony by saying she's terrified. She's terrified about being there. She's terrified as to what did happen and thought it would. And part of our opening statement went right into what happened describing what happened during that evening. I believe he was going to rape me. Her motivation to come forward unrelated to politics, which is true. She doesn't have a history of political involvement. She said, I'm an independent person and one of the more interesting parts of her testimony when she was asked. What's the worst part of it that you remember and she said to laughter? The boys laughing. As I was able to leave that room and walked down the stairs. Meantime. Senator dick Durbin asked her to what degree of certainty. Do you believe that cavenaugh assaulted you one hundred percent? And she went on to say that how is she surviving? Well, she and her husband are doing very, well when asked how horrible it was, and we have a very supportive community their support group. And that's how she is surviving. Although she is living in a place. We don't know she had to move and still she is incommunicado is they say the meantime break cabin. He follows Christine blazey Ford and starts with this is a national disgrace. I mean, he was angry. I mean, this was not a man who wanted to show how even tempered he was how he can take anything. He comes down the pike with economic new. No, he was fine. In terms of how angry he was interesting argument. They are both sides. And that is and the Senator from Hawaii no said that let's talk about your temperament. Do you think? Temperament is important. Yes. Do you think that it's important for us to look at your temperament as a potential nominee said? Yes, what she was. Of course, referring to is how angry he was and how in her opinion, he overreacted. So there's one argument. Let me give you the other argument on the other side with these kinds of accusations. What kind of human being wouldn't be angry? How do you suppress? How angry you are. If you feel you're being unfairly attacked a lifetime of public service. A pristine record. And all of a sudden the accusation is that you assaulted someone and attempted to rape that person. And then he started describing that all this was a calculated and orchestrated political hit. He went to politics. He named the Democrats. I don't know how much that's helped him didn't hurt him because the Democrats gonna vote against him anyway and the Republican vote in favor. So all he did really is parrot what what was going on even though he was. He was the center of all this. I never sexually assaulted anyone. When he tell you brought to tears he was talking about his ten year old daughter and trying to explain to her what these accusations rowdy. So that's very hard to do this to a family. Saying oh ABI accused of this. What does that mean? Daddy, kind of thing. How do you explain that to your daughter? And after he did he said, my daughter said, we should pray for this woman. Started crying on that one. Boy that was a moving moment. And then what happened? Well, then it really went into the Democrats and Republicans going in different directions. Democrats universally calling for an FBI investigation. The Republicans saying no we've investigated all we need. I it's it's done. It's finished. We don't need the FBI. And then there was language that I just didn't understand and that is the FBI makes no conclusions. All it does is prevent present evidence. And therefore, we've already investigated it. What a crock then you don't need the FBI at all. Do you to do background checks committees can do background checks all the point? Is it can't? They don't have the manpower. They don't have the expertise. Right. They don't have the objectivity. All right coming up. One of the big issues was blackouts. Based on drinking way too much. That's the other thing that I completely believe incidentally, that he did blackout. I think he was stinking drunk during a lot of these episodes now, whether he raped someone I tend to believe he didn't he may have had a blackout. And we'll talk about that coming up KFI. Let's check in with Jennifer jealously judge in LA is walked back.
