Fresh update on "senator grassley" discussed on Guy Benson
"Best of kind. Benson Happy hour here on the guy Benson show. Glad you're with us. I'm Guy Benson. We were joined by US Senator Joni Ernst, Republican of Iowa, recently reelected big big win for the party in the Hawkeye State. We spoke with Senator Ernst on a number of subjects, including her new column on the importance of the Georgia run off. Here's part of my discussion with freshly re elected Senator Joni Ernst. Let's start by because I just gave the stats as I always do on coronavirus. One of those cases that has been confirmed, is your partner from Iowa in the U. S. And a Chuck Grassley who announced that he has Cove it any update. Might you have any update on his condition? And what? Your thoughts in terms of his prognosis? I'm I know everyone would like to see him back. Healthy and in the Senate as soon as possible. Yes, he is an icon for Iowa. And, of course, our prayers and and that's wishes are with Senator Grassley as he battles through Cove. It s so far it hasn't been much of the battle for Senator Grassley. He is just in Tremendous house. So what I know just most recently is that he's asymptomatic so far, and they're keeping a very close eye on it, Of course, but he does tend to be in pretty good spirits thus far. Good. Oh, that's wonderful to hear. And let's hope that that continues because I think you were the you use the word icon. You're right about that. He's a workhorse, and he's a tough guy to so our thoughts are with Senator Grassley. Let's talk about your race because you may remember Senator just before the election, maybe, or maybe a week or so before the election we had you on And I said, When I told my audience this repeatedly in my opinion, the most important Senate races in the country we're going to come down to Iowa and North Carolina. Your race and Thom Tillis is raised. As it turns out, Republicans went two for two. In those races. It was a close shave. For senator. Tell us who was behind it. Most of the polling you ended up winning, so this is interesting. You ended up winning by more than 6.5% points, whereas the final polling average Had you ahead by just about a point and two of the last three public polls had you actually trailing? You are Democratic challenger Theresa Greenfield. And then you won Pretty handily. What do you attribute the margin of victory that you were able to achieve? And was your big win reflected in your own internal data, or was the polling off sort of across the board? Well and just to share. You know my internal data. The internal polling did have me winning. Um, and we saw that throughout the campaign cycle. And so I knew that there was something off on the public polls that were commissioned by ah lot of these large media outlets, and we saw it in so many different races. But what I attribute my wind, too is said I am out doing A 99 county tour every single year in Iowa. I do public town halls. Last year, I did 35 public town halls and I don't shy away from areas that are more liberal. You know, I've I've done a town hall at Iowa City, the University of Iowa, which is a very progressive Bastian. So I think the folks in Iowa understand that I am accessible. I'm hearing their challenges, and I'm projecting there. Voices on the national stage and the strategy coming from my opponent. And of course, you know her campaign director Chuck Schumer was just to stay hidden in the basement. And Iowans don't appreciate that They want to know their politicians. They want to know that their elected officials are getting out into the far corners of the state of Iowa and representing not just a major metro areas. But also those small rural communities s. Oh, that's what I attribute. The wind, too, is by being accessible by being a real honest iowan by hearing their challenges, and by projecting their thoughts to my colleagues. Do you know how much money they dumped on you? On the other side? You know, I haven't seen the final breakdown, but overall, the race in Iowa cost somewhere around. I think $240 million it did And it is crazy. And if you think about Iowa We have a little over three million people in the state that's from our youngest newborns on the way to our are elderly and, you know price point per vote. With very significant and Iowa is a very inexpensive race to run and our state to run in. And the only more expensive race in history for the United States Senate was Thom Tillis is in North Carolina. And so you were right. These were the pivotal races and thank heavens we are two for two. My full.
State Department watchdog was investigating arms sales; Pompeo denies retaliation
"The State Department's Inspector General. I thought to be fired for investigating. The Secretary of State for assigning personal tasks to a department staffer also was investigating the approval of arms sale to Saudi Arabia without congressional approval officials from different congressional committees told NBC News. They believe Inspector General. Steve Clinic was fired in part for investigating Saudi arms sales that Congress had previously rejected house foreign affairs. Committee member Eliot Engel of New York. Confirm that investigation by late Monday. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding a more complete explanation for Lennox firing according to the hill. Senator Chuck Grassley Republican of Iowa sent a letter to the president on Monday. Senator Grassley reminded president trump. The law requires detailed explanations for dismissing departmental watchdog to ensure that inspectors. General are not removed for political reasons. President Trump said the claims the secretary of state potentially misuse of government resources are overblown and seeing to consider them acceptable. Even if they are true look he's a high quality person. Mike is very high quality Zuri brilliant guy and now I have you telling me about dog walk in washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader. Then have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid you know stupid. That sounds to the world unbelievable head to wash dishes because his wife wasn't there. The president also confirmed Monday. That secretary of State pompeo requested the dismissal of idealistic but did not directly address the issue of retaliation. President isn't there. At least an appearance of a conflict of interest of secretary. Pompeo is asking you to fire inspector. General's I don't I don't think so. I think maybe he thinks he's being treated unfairly again. He wanted to. He asked me if that would be possible. I said I'll do that. Your I think it should have been done a long time ago. Frankly and this is a man that has had some controversy. This inspector general but So again I don't know anything. I haven't even read much about him. I see that it's a little bit of a story not much of a story. 'cause everybody agrees that. I have the absolute right to fire. The Inspector General's secretary pay later dismissed the idea that his requests for the firing was in retaliation for links investigations into arms deals. And those errands saying quote. Because I simply don't know I'm not briefed on it. I usually see these investigations and final draft form. Twenty four hours forty eight hours before the is prepared to release them. So it's simply not possible for this to be an act of retaliation end of story says Secretary Pompeo the State Department's under-secretary for management told the Post that concern over linen had grown because of a quote pattern of unauthorized disclosures. Leaks to the news media about investigations. That were an early draft form. He added officials had no evidence. Linac was personally responsible for the leak so Casey Hud. There's a lot to unpack there. Let's go back to the arm sale though this was a year ago in. May when the president and secretary pompeo declared an emergency bypassing congress to sell about eight billion dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia and the UAE and it drew condemnation by the way from Republicans not just from Democrats but there was bipartisan. Condemnation of this move and now it appears that inspector general was looking into that declaration of emergency. Yes that's what. Nbc News learned late yesterday when Chairman Angle confirmed that this investigation was going on that they were angry that essentially he had the president and Pompeo tried to circumvent Congress on this arm sales question this was something that there are a lot of. Republicans as you point out who are very invested in what was going on in that particular situation. And who opposed this move by the administration but let's not forget to put the firing of this inspector general in to kind of the broader context in pattern that we're seeing going on here. This is not the first time something like this has happened and the administration has already ignored the rules that they are supposed to follow when something like this happens in the case of Michael Atkinson in the intelligence community by not explaining to Congress within thirty days why they did it and so I think there's a question here as to whether the administration will do it in the case of the State Department. This has been something that has drawn as you pointed out. Bipartisan condemnation chuck. Grassley though senator from Iowa has been particularly focused on this but the reality is Congress's relatively toothless in this regard they can make these demands asking for more information but the laws are not necessarily written in a position. That's strong enough to let them make a real difference here. And what we're left with is kind of a government that is increasingly. Not being held accountable. Now how that lines up with the president's campaign promise to drain the swamp I will let our viewers decide but they seem to be at odds. Donald Trump talked about how incredibly stupid thing sounded at his press conference. And I agree Casey. I want you to listen to this clip. One more time and let's focus on the part where Donald Trump says that he doesn't want Mike Palm. Oh doing dishes if his wife isn't there take a look. Look he's a high quality person. Mike is a very high quality his brilliant guy and now I have you tell me about dog walking washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader than have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid stupid. That sounds to the world. Unbelievable quoting the president of the United States to you know Mr President how stupid that sounds to the world that in twenty twenty you say he needs State Department officials to washes dishes in case his wife. Isn't there
U.S. Farmers Have Multiple Concerns When It Comes To Trade Talks
"US and Chinese negotiators will meet in Washington for talks about the trade war. Now, the stakes are high for everyone. But especially for farmers government data shows that income levels for farmers. Have recently been dropping Republican Senator Chuck Grassley represents Iowa that's a state. That's deeply dependent on agriculture. Grassley himself is from a farming family that grows sway beans and corn. I asked him if his constituents are worried, and he said, the farmers that he's talking to are worried about things beyond just their bottom lines. You don't want to think of farmers only thinking about their own products being sold to China. Farmers know that China's stealing our intellectual property. Our trade says grits, if you want to do business in China, you gotta do it the way they want you to do it. And that's give them or your technology. The farmers know that they're manipulating their currency. As Senator we've spoken to many farmers on morning edition who have told us that their bottom line is being hit hard by the trade war that they are losing tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of dollars. Their concern isn't intellectual property at this point their concern. He's making a living. What do you say to them? Their concern is intellectual property because there's an awful lot of intellectual property goes into the creation of the surplus that we do the government, though has acknowledged that this trade war is hurting farmers. In fact, last year, the government offered farmers bailout money to the tune of twelve billion dollars you as you said you'd apply for it. Did you end up applying? Yeah, I got it on a thirty acres. Soybeans. But I don't know how much money I got. But you're entitled to know if you wanna find out that means that you are far must have been at risk. You must have felt that you were losing money because of the trade war, otherwise you wouldn't have applied for federal bailout money, no participate in every government program. That's available because it's been considered in my generation. Remember, I'm eighty five years old that farmers stick together and participating in the farm program is one way of showing your in the same boat as everybody else's. We talked to a soybean farmer in Ohio, Chris Gibbs about the bailout program. He took the money as well. Here's what he had to say about it twelve billion dollars pumped in agriculture. That's great. But that's only a one time fix early tax payers not going to continue to do that. Why would they for a policy? That's inflicted pain. Byron government onto agriculture NASA. Tariffs he is not that impressed by. This bailout. What do you say to a guy like Chris cubes are Warren impressed by it? And I sat in meetings with ten or twelve other senators a couple of times over the course of the last eighteen months, and we told the president. We don't want aid. We want markets, and we want trade not aid and so- farmers feel the same way that person from Ohio fields. But on the other hand, I can tell you a lot of farmers that said to me, it's hurting us temporarily, but the president's doing the right thing because you lay can't let the Chinese screw us on international trade where we have six hundred billion dollar deficit. It seemed as if the United States and China were really making progress on these trade talks, and then President Trump tweeted this weekend that he plans to impose new high tariffs on Chinese goods. He is affected. -ly upping the ante right now ahead of trade talks that a y. Is move a based upon what I have found out from the executive branch of government from two different sources when our team went to China, we could go they got over there, and they found out that the Chinese had negotiated to a certain level. They got the tex- for that negotiation. And it went way back from where they thought we had brought them to the we can't make the same mistake with China. This time that we made in twenty eleven when we thought we had an agreement with Chinese and they didn't carry it out. So it's time I think to strike a very strong enforceable deal. So that farmers even non-farmers can get the certainty that they need. What is your message for each side here? And what do you think is it stake? If these talks break down what I would say is everybody benefits from. Freer trade. I'd say to China you joined the WTO, and you're in your into an organization that has to live by the rules of trade. Yarn living by him by not enforcing. Let's say intellectual property. I'd say to the United States we ought to be set in the pattern for the rest of the world on trade because that's what we have done since World War Two and Senator to the farmer who says, look, I don't care about intellectual property. I've got a small farm relatively small farm. I just need to make a living. I need to eat. I need to not lose money. Would you tell them? Hold on very definitely if this is all successful. And I know today that's a big if but if this is all successful, not only is that farmer going to be better off. But the entire world is going to be better off because free trade has proven itself with the reduction of. Global poverty with the enhancement of the middle class worldwide. And if this is not successful, if it's not successful will continue to go on and try to accomplish what we can in ways other than China. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you, very much goodbye. All right NPR's chief economics. Correspondent Scott Horsely? Was listening into the senators interview, Scott what stood out to you there? Noel, I was just in Senator Grassi's home state of Iowa over the weekend and farmers. There have really suffered a series of gut punches not only low crop prices, and then the trade war. But now they're dealing with historic flooding. Farmers are resilient and like a lot of Americans. They do want to see changes in China's behavior, but they are carrying a heavy load in this trade fight. Chris Gibbs who spoke with earlier this week talked about soybean prices dropping by three dollars a bushel that twelve billion dollar government aid package pays at most a dollar sixty five. A bushel. And that's for farmers who qualify a lot of crops get less than that and Noel, it's not just China in this trade war Trump's withdrawal. From a big Asia. Pacific trade deal is hurting beef farmers who are trying to do business in Japan, dairy, farmers in Wisconsin. And elsewhere in the midwest are hurting because Mexico is not buying as much of our cheese anymore. Senator Grassley himself has complained about the president's tariffs on steel and aluminum America has the world's most productive agriculture. But the president's trade policies have given farmers a tough row to hoe. NPR's chief economics correspondent, Scott Horsely. Thanks got. You're welcome.

"Less one? If we don't find out what happened there, then we're leading the whole system down samba look at that Senator you wrote a memo with co author with Senator Grassley and the Grassley grand memo. I don't know why he got top billing you needed to talk about that. And I think that the bulk of information for the FIS warrants was the phony dossier, isn't it isn't that a fraud committed on a Pfizer court, and they didn't tell the court that she paid for it. Or where is the defies the courts outrage? Number one, number two. If there was a paid informant competent employment used as a counter intelligence operation. That was paid to talk to the Trump campaign about connections to Russia. What did they cops down she'll informant? Find and why wasn't that information used to get a warrant? So here's what I'm suggesting to you that the confidential informant us Bobby FBI to look at the Trump campaign. Didn't find anything about Russia calls phychi had it would've been part of the worn applications and Savell quarter page. Well, I think you're right on all accounts. And the only thing that I I might add is the uranium one debacle. You know, we had a we imple- traded Putin's network. You know that Hillary got the kickbacks to the Clinton foundation. You know that Robert Muller just happened to be the FBI director, and the FBI imple- trader was informing his bosses that bribery, extortion, money laundering, and kickbacks. We're going on and they still approved that uranium one deal. Twenty percent of our uranium, you know, ending up really in Putin's hands. Everything good. Donny w- people on your program believed is that when it came to Clinton misconduct. There was really no effort to find the truth that the people investigating Clinton headed out for Trump and wanted her to win that defies a warrant was more political than it was legal. And that that whole group got a pass and that they're going after Trump like there's no tomorrow. And I don't know how you tell people that they're not right to believe that I'm gonna have to let you go here. Senator we do appreciate what you're doing. I think you're going to be working pretty hard next year. Hope you get some downtown over Christmas..

She could be facing week. Got this letter dated November the second to Jeff Sessions that Senator Grassley, and I'm gonna tell you this is a let's say once a lot only talks about what she did. But it also talks about the resources expended to investigate her allegations. As if this committee is a busy enough doing what they do. They had to go run down this rabbit trail over at a something that wasn't even true. So all of that is going to go into the mix and deciding what do we do now? So you guys I it's confusing to me.

I know you as well because you're not you're not as an expert on our show, you're on many television or radio show is and you have an actual job as an attorney. A career.

Brooke cavenaugh, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee wrote in a letter to the FBI that was on Friday that Senate investigators tracked down Judy Monroe Lleyton Hewitt. I claim she was the author of this anonymous letter that made allegations against cavern Nick Cavanaugh, then during an interview with investigators, the Kentucky woman, you mentioned. He's from Kentucky. Recanted said she was never the author that she'd never met Cavanaugh and then Grassley now what's her investigative for making a false statement. And then earlier if I got this right Grassley it asked the FBI to investigate another woman who made accusations. And that was that Julie, sweat, Nick woman. Right..

"Apparently Senator Grassley has passed the file onto Dianne Feinstein in the case is closed on the cabinet investigation. It looks like from what I'm reading Michael Bauer yours smarter than me. You know, a lot more ABC News Radio. What's the latest? Good morning. Well, now, I'm confused on this whole thing to do. This wasn't supposed to happen until eight o'clock the procedure in the way, this was supposed to go with eight o'clock this morning Grassley would get a copy of this FBI report. And by the way, this is all like one. There's total of ten paper reports that are going to be out there. Nothing. PDF? Nothing emailed. Nothing electron EQ. It's just ten copies of paper reports. One was supposed to go to Grassley at eight o'clock this morning that it was supposed to go over to Diane Feinstein at nine. Then you're going to have all of the Republicans get their copy on the Senate Judiciary committee at ten and the Democrats were going to get their copy on the Senate this year, he committee at eleven and then it was going to go to the senators as a whole from there. So this is already some two hours ahead of the game here, which has completely thrown off my schedule as to win somebody who's going to leak the entirety on the internet. I had eighteen hours after eight o'clock now I'm gonna have to adjust that for an over under. Well, that's exactly right. And you know, with that I think there's some interesting questions here. There's a lot of pressure as we know on the way this went down as far as the investigation at least from the democratic side. Things in that is meaning that basically the White House said that the FBI does need to investigate cavenaugh anymore. Talked to him or Blasi Ford, Dr Blasi Ford because we already have the information from the U S Senate Judiciary committee, but that's not the same as being interviewed by an FBI official. That's correct. And and it's not the same as opening the door to the FBI to conduct an investigation to kind of find out more about some of these allegations. Or even to the certain point like we've got people now who are saying that they knew judge cavenaugh very closely in college, and they knew that based upon his testimony, and what they saw him testify to in front of the Senate Judiciary committee that he was lying, but they can't get the FBI to come and talk to them and ask any questions a number of people saying that this morning. So now, you're going to have this world where people as soon as report gets anybody hands in heaven forbid as soon as that stuff gets leaked out sooner rather than later, you're going to have an entire pointing world of Democrats versus Republicans and Democrats. Saying listen, this is an incomplete investigation. The White House would let it happen. Even FBI agents have told some of these people who are waiting several people reaching out to investigators waiting to be spoken to that. They are allowed to ask questions about judge Kavanagh's drinking on any level. So is this elimination from the White House? Was this something that was set up an advanced and by the way, the White House because they're the ones hiring the FBI to do this. The White House has been getting updates through all of this every single day and update on this case from the from the FBI and the Wall Street Journal says even though this isn't an official announcement from the White House this morning there reporting at the White House says they found no corroboration of Christine Blasi affords the sexual assault allegation against break cabin on the FBI report on the matter. So that's where we stand this morning and copies apparently already being made all over in sent off to people in the Senate a lot of people think this is done and over. But I still think that the big three comes down to Murkowski Collins of the Republicans as to whether they're going to nominate or. I mean fulfil the nomination on the vote on what looks to be Saturday now. And I think that's still up in the air. I completely agree with you right now if they were to have the vote this morning, Tony they don't have the Republicans don't have the vote. I mean this report they're hoping Republicans are hoping that this report is going to get the swing votes over the line. Right. So you're talking about your Collins McAliskey flake. But also, you still got those red state Democrats in Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp that are also going to have to make these decisions here. And I don't think the president mocking Christine Blasi Ford has helped any of any of them at all in making that decision because yes, you're supposed to be voting on whether or not you think Kavanagh's the most the perfect person for this position. But you also have to play the political game at each of these people do and thank God for DC for having that otherwise I wouldn't have a job, but you have to play that political game because people like Collins and Murkowski, you're going to have to go back and answer their female constituent as to why they're voting in Cavin on some level when the president was making fun of a woman who was allegedly abused in sexual fashion. So all of those things. Are gonna come together here in a vote? And I mean, they could you can legitimately have while, you know, you've got McConnell calling for the cloture votes. You could very well have a couple of those senators sixteen of them allowed to vote to move this onto an upper down vote on the Senate floor. They could postpone that they could go for thirty hours of debate on this on their own by making these decisions, and and not moving forward with the upper down vote, which is what at least at this point McConnell is looking to do on Saturday. We'll see what.

Because Kellyanne Conway said that's not the case that she doesn't think the White House is is telling the FBI don't look into this. Don't look into that. Don't interview these witnesses. Exactly. I am basing this on reports, and then I'm listening to our interview, which was really interesting when she said at the end that victims of sexual assault should be able to come forward and have their stories and their claims investigated. And so many people including Senator Grassley the chairman during the hearing respected said they respected doctor Ford and talked about her brave. She was. And what I said hearing was, if you truly respect her, then you just can't say it. You have to follow up on the evidence. She actually said that she ran into Mark judge. The other person she said was in the room at a Safeway app, but she doesn't know the time period that he worked there and she, that was one thing that she specifically asked befollows up on because she said he was so uncomfortable when she saw him. He is, of course, a key witness and has not been interviewed by the FBI. But according to reports, they planned to interview him. I just wanna see this. She conducted in a fair independent way which center flake has asked for, and by the way the people have real leverage on this thing are the three Republican senators who are still undecided.

"The we made money for our sponsors. Let's go back to make him the liberals crazy the hand man is back on the radio right now. Twenty five till the top of the hour. We expect a news conference with President Trump is still in New York at the United Nations. We are broadcasting from the swamp the sewer, and if you never thought it was that bad it's worse than ever today. Eight hundred nine four one Sean is our number. We're gonna get we'll get to your calls in a couple of minutes here. I promise we're going to get to it. We'll get to the press conference too. So tomorrow the much anticipated hearings with professor Ford. She will get a limited amount of time to give her statement every center will have five minutes then to question her then the same will be given to judge Cavanaugh. But again, it wasn't until Monday that Dianne Feinstein finally turned over the letter from Dr Ford to Senator Grassley. The chairman of the committee. They never asked professor cavenaugh not one time when they had private meetings about the claim of professor Ford. Not one time. Did they bring it up during the hearings they held it? And when the committee finally, the Senate Judiciary committee finally got a hold of the names of the people and learn the identities of the four individuals that Dr Ford claimed or at the party where her alleged abuse took place, while the committee reached out to each person gave them an opportunity to conduct a confidential interview. And none of them they all denied having any knowledge of any party matching professor Ford's description, then the New Yorker case where she in this particular, case, Debra Ramirez. And she herself couldn't totally be sure if Cavanaugh was the perpetrator quickly inebriated at the party, quote, foggy and slurring her words that she has significant memory, gaps the New York Times. Said that they had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story and couldn't find anyone with firsthand knowledge. And then they pointed out that MS Ramirez herself had been contacting former year yell classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Cavanaugh was the one who quote exposed himself and Michael avenue Audie with his client today. Julie sweat, Nick. And of course, these allegations that she went to at least ten parties ten where routinely people were being drugged and gang train raped during all of these parties, Senator Lindsey Graham is on the Senate Judiciary committee. I read your statement from earlier today. Oh, let you say it in your own words. But I think you raise some very significant serious points that I want to get the broader question in to what you think. Is going on here. Well, I think mess Dr Nadi his came forward two days before we're voting with an accusation that is internally inconsistent outrageous indefens- sensibilities Brett Kevin was supposedly a sophomore junior in high school, and he was organizing gang rapes over a period of two years. What person keeps going back to parties for people are drugged and raped? They never call the cops this if you can't figure this this one now, you're not really trying. We're gonna have to hear him. We'll miss Ford tomorrow. There's no evidence to cooperate her alligators in no time, no place. Everybody name said, they didn't see it. I'm sure something happened to miss for. But you cannot hold cavenaugh accountable coasters, no evidence this last event coming from the avenue ATI world says all you need to know they're trying to destroy this man to trying to deny this pick. They're trying to win the twenty. Eighteen midterms and deny President Trump a supreme court pick. That's what this is about. You know, Senator you've been you've been there for around a two with supreme court justices. How many how many justices of you voted on in? The course of your time in the Senate four voted for both of them put forward by Barack Obama, and and all of Bush's. They're all eminently qualified. Here's what I would say if I had done this. If I'd held out information about a liberal Democrat nominee cropped it last minute went around and make an accusation. Like this sitter unverified. They would ruin my life. The media would and our deserve it the double standard is on display here. I cannot believe that this is the Senate. This is a new low for me. As you watch all of this unfold that I've read this this statement by Michael Evans as client, you know, repeatedly. Julie sweat, Nick is her name is sweat, neck, right? And I read it over and over again, and she said that these parties took place all of the time, and she attended at least ten of them. And that boys were lined up that they would purposely drug and get these girls inebriated and put things in their drinks. And that there were lines of boys waiting to their turn to go in and rape gang. Rape. These these women, and this comes up as you say just in the closing hours before the vote to me in many ways, the Democrats never wanted a vote on this. And maybe that's why Dianne Feinstein held back. This information that she had in July. And then the the slow drip, drip, drip, in the New Yorker piece in my view, never should have been published based. Based on the statements of MS Ramirez herself. And in this particular case, if all of this had happened, how is it possible with all of these people that are watching these events unfold gang rape, ten times ten parties abusing women in this way. Right. That none of the victims are not named that nobody involved in this ever told their mother their father their friends, their clergy the school STA police somebody it's it's inconceivable to me. Well, you know, I've been a judge a defense attorney and a prosecutor before I got into this distance. And I can tell you if you turn this case over to the Maryland state police it will go nowhere. It's inconceivable for me to believe that a person would attend ten parties over two year period for people being drugged and raped. Never worn your girlfriends keep going back putting yourself at risk. Cavanaugh denies this. He says, I don't know this lady she's older than Cavanaugh. She was in college. This supposedly happened when he was assault. Born highschool all I can say that they're portraying Kavanagh's Bill. Cosby he is not people like Bill. Cosby do it all their life? You just don't do it during high school in stop. You're not a serial rapist for a few years. If you got this problem, he keeps going and there's no evidence that he's abused. Any woman anytime in the workplace when he had power over them. I hope we can figure this out. This is a new low for me. It comes from avenue dotty, we should consider it. The trash that it is. Let me ask you this. Look, I it's a very tight margin Republicans and Democrats in the Senate, but on the other hand, you do have a number of Senate Democrats that have an election in forty one days in states where Donald Trump won by big margins. And we'd be talking about people like Bill Nelson Claire mccaskill who are ready is a no on judge Cavanaugh, and Joe Manchin and Donnelly and North Dakota. I mean this Heidi Heitkamp. Do you think this is going to impact the election? Well, I hope people will look at the three people you've described and save whether or not they're being fair process is this fair to hold withhold information drop, it just a few days before you vote aspirin FBI investigation when you had weeks and months to do the same is it fair to allow Michael avenue ninety to come in two days before the vote in destroy somebody's life by calling them may serial rapist in the most absurd allegation yet is it fair to destroy judge Kavanagh's like seat on the court based on article that the New York Times would not print. It goes to your judgment. And it goes to your fairness, the sense of fairness and the question is do you honor the fact that President Trump one this is about destroying the election? Undercutting the the President Trump's ability to pay qualified down to the court and get it into twenty twenty if they've oh. Vote with their colleagues on this. I would argue to people for three days in question that they're trying to overturn the election. Senator I've been now uncovering, and I have a great on samba team that I've been working with over a year and a half almost two years now, and we've been able to expose corruption on a level in our Justice department, even the top ranks, not rank and file top ranks of the FBI where we now know that fix was in an investigation into Hillary. We know that Hillary bought and paid for Russian lies and propaganda part of the dossier that Christopher Steele put together that was the seminated to the American people to to give Hillary and edge and convince people not to vote for Donald Trump contained phony allegations that Donald Trump was in Moscow years earlier, and there were two hookers in Moscow, Ritz Carlton, urinating in the bed. I mean, I thought that was a low point, but that Trump. Yeah. Shake your hand. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Hey, he's. But but but those allegations think about this. We're also used. Yeah. They were used to obtain a Fiso aren't the bulk of information, and I'm quoting your memo the Grassley grand memo, the Nunez memo the bulk of information they used when lying and committing. I believe a fraud on the Pfizer court was that dossier the talked about the hookers, right? Well, the dossier was prepared by foreign agent hired by the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign together. Dirt on a candidate. Trump is still to this day. Not verified, there's nothing in that dossier. There's been verified, it's all political garbage. At the court was never told that the author of the dossier hated Trump and was on the payroll of a political party if we had done something like this. It'd be front page news everywhere. Somebody needs to investigate how Fiso warrants process could get so off the rails and look into page and struck a regarding the. Clinton Email investigation in defies award. Well, I'm hoping we get to the bottom of that sooner than later. You know, I talk every two to four years I warned my audience on radio and TV and I back it up with with video. I did it last night. I could do it here today that takes too much time because there's too much information every two to four years Republicans, and these horrible things to accuse people of our are universally called racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic, xenophobic Islamaphobia that they want dirty air and water, they breathe drink it. But they want it. And they hate children and want them to die. And there's always going to be an ad of some congressman or Senator or Senate candidate throwing granny over a cliff because Republicans old people, right? That's not bad enough. Now, we've got all of this mess after Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas, even well it never happens to their people. It always happens to our people voted for soda Marin taken. It would never enter my mom. Mind to do something like this to them to legitimize what I think is just completely uncorroborated the last instant here coming from avenue ninety he told us about this Sunday. He has yet to produce the lady for an interview, this is all last minute. Character assassination is internally inconsistent. No reasonable person would go to ten parties where there's gang rape and drugs being used without telling somebody that which is just end with this is not working. They do it every two to four years, but we have the house. We have the Senate, and we had the White House. Clearly, the American people are not buying what they're selling. So our democrat. I would think of a new way to get reelected or to get the White House to house in the Senate rather than trying to destroy us. Why don't you try to build up the lie to the American people rather than trying to destroy Brett cabin? Now. Why don't you offer optimistic view of America? You know, I will say that. That is what I think election should be about. What about your colleagues? I mean, we've heard from people like Jeff flake and Bob corker and Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, those are the poor people that write that normally conservatives would worry about supporting the president. Have you spoken with them? And how do you think they'll come down on this? Well, we had a good lunch. And again, you know, I sort of have a reputation of working on the other side. I did vote for soda Marin Kagan, by the way, sometimes you sometimes over the years you have gotten me mad once or twice..

"Jimbotalks. As the next six days could be key for judge. Brad Kavanagh supreme court nomination. Maybe or the next six years for all. We know Canada has a newly scheduled Senate Judiciary committee hearing on Monday. The woman who accused him of sexually and physically assaulting her with may routines. Christine blazey Ford as been invited to a beer, Emily Schmitt details, the political maneuvering taking place behind the public or maybe it'll be private or maybe it won't happen at all testimony. This station is adjourned as the Senate Judiciary committee. Looks to close the book on Brad Kavanagh and forward his nomination. There's an unexpected chapter to be written with hearing added. Next Monday, Judge Kavanagh's, very anxious to do it, and a delay is certainly acceptable. There must not be a hearing on Monday. And then a possible vote on the nominee a day or two after professor Christine Blasi Ford says Cavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted her to party more than thirty years ago. Cavanaugh has denied her allegations. They are both invited to testify before the Senate Judiciary committee, though, chairman Chuck Grassley says Ford has not confirmed multiple Email requests raises the question. Do they want to do? They wanna come to the public hearing. Or not Grassley says only Ford and Cavanaugh would testify Democrats say that is not enough. In a statement Senator Dianne Feinstein observed that there were a number of witnesses at the Anita hill hearings during the confirmation process for Justice Clarence Thomas in nineteen Ninety-one Feinstein is calling for more outside witnesses while some Republicans say Democrats are trying to run out the clock. Until the mid terms. They sat on this information for nearly seven weeks seven weeks that delay happened is four deliberated whether to go public with her story now that she has Washington wonders when she will tell it next in Washington, I'm Emily Schmidt. And we are joined the evening by a man who has much to say about this and other issues of the day. He is a former congressman from Utah. Now, a Fox News contributor Jason. Chaffetz joins us who has written the deep state published by HarperCollins subtitle. How an army of bureaucrats protected Barack Obama and is working to describe the Trump agenda. But before we get your book. Jason let's first take a look at this whole question of whether or not we're going to have a confirmation vote for bread cabinet before. He turns eighty. Well, thanks for having me on. I do appreciate it. I hope so this seems strikes me as a good decent. Honorable person. There's a great deal of sensitivity to the person who's making this accusation. The Senate has opened up and been I think very generous to allow her to come testify on Monday. But you know, I from my vantage point in granted, I wanna see him confirmed. But from my vantage point, it does smell to me like the Democrats have been orchestrating this for some time. There's an awful lot of evidence to that. And remember their goal. Their goal was to delay. And ultimately defeat this nominee at all costs is they put it every member of the Democrats on the judiciary committee is already going to vote. Now, they've already said that publicly. It's not as if somebody might be converted to a yes. So they're already gonna vote. No, am I hope we move forward and did you dishes, but but swift manner? It certainly doesn't seem that we're going to be moving forward too terribly fast. Do you think that it? There's still time for a vote to put cabinet on the supreme court in time for the Tober first beginning of the fall session of the supreme court. Well, I'm glad you mentioned it like that. Because usually most people ask and say, hey, what are how does this impact the midterms really the impact is on the supreme court when it goes inconvenience the first part of October. So there is the imperative to get it done on time. I'd say the committee has gone to regular order. I think it's highly suspicious that the Democrats sat on this is Mitch McConnell said for nearly seven weeks before they suddenly decided that hey, maybe we ought to have somebody else. Look at that. You know, the idea that she did a lot of things in between doesn't is not consistent with the idea that, hey, I don't want my name to be associated with this. I don't wanna come forward. Sounds like she really does want to come forward. But she won't even answer the committee's, Email requests. And now there's a complaint that they should have called as opposed to Email. I mean, come on. And of course, there's the question also posed by South Carolina, Senator Lindsey Graham, if in fact, she did not intend to testify why in August, did she hire an attorney and in August take a polygraph test. I mean that that doesn't sound like the action of somebody who plans to stay undercover know in the moment. This story broke. Of course, there's a rush to look at all the social media. Well, all of that had been scrubbed things have been taken down pictures yearbook post, you know, things like that that traditionally don't happen before it's quote unquote leaked. And here we are. We were coming up on know day after tomorrow going to be able to have a a vote. But I think Senator Grassley determinate judiciary committee is saying all right? Let's do it on Monday. If that's what you wanna do. And I think the drama between now, and then we'll be whether or not she's actually going to show up Jason shape. It's of course, knows well the drama that can occur on Capitol Hill is a former congressman from Utah. But it is other type of behavior by other people inside the beltway, which is the subject of his new book, the deep state. It is published by HarperCollins before we get into the book. There are some people out there who look at the phrase, the deep state, and they think it's some conspiracy theory like like black helicopters or something like that. Well, and that's exactly why I wrote the book because I spent eight and a half years in congress, and I took eight and a half months to to articulate on a piece of paper. What it is. I saw I didn't know what the deep state was when I got there. But by the time, I left I knew it was very real. It's a concerted brazen attempt by bureaucrats to push forward, the democratic agenda fight against Republicans. They certainly don't like a disruptive unconventional president like Donald Trump. They don't like exposure, they don't like Taft to reveal things they don't want to be held accountable and they take very brazen actions. They don't hide some corner. There's not some guys with tinfoil hats over there. But they're very brazen about their approach. You see Brennan, for instance, right now just advocating outlet in the open to justify the president. That's not what we do in this country. But that's those are actions of a of a deep state that just fights against the president. On the will of the people from Jason. It's book the deep state. The introduction. Opening words. It is a covert twelve twenty twelve and I'm an stood guard Germany on my way to Libya, I'm standing in the office of four star US general Carter ham about to get a classified briefing on everything. The United States knows about the attack less than four weeks ago on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi Libya and tell us about what happened there because there was this young blonde man there. Yes. I was the first member of congress to go there after the attack seeking the truth. But then there was this person from the State Department, and he he was not somebody who could eliminate what happened during the attack. He was not there who could eliminate on Libya policy is entire purpose was to essentially spy on me. He wanted to hear every word. I heard take every note that he can't possibly could. And then when I was getting a highly class. Defied briefing. He didn't have the proper security clearance. Got a hold of Cheryl mills the chief of staff to Hillary Clinton yelling screaming flailing, not wanting to be kicked out of this meeting. But I didn't come to have this argument came to hear from their senior most officials what what really happened, and that's the way deep state works. They essentially in Clinton's world wanted to spy on me. I don't know this young punk actually knows how things were supposed to work. Congress has oversight over the State Department. And other federal yeah, bureaucracies, it isn't the other way around. He had no business being there. Nitpicking anything that you did whatsoever. He has zero authority in this capacity. The State Department lawyer to do anything other than whatever in the State Department. He's legally constituted to do that does not include shadowing members of congress. I was on the oversight committee was not yet the chair, but I was the chair of the national security subcommittee. I knew the rules of the house. The law of the land the oversight committee can investigate anything anywhere. But he was there to be intimidating. He suppressed the information from those on the ground that wanted to share it with me, I tried to talk to the regional security officer who knew exactly who this person was and didn't want to even be seen talking to me because he feared what the repercussions might be. It was a it was a absolute brazen attempt to suppress the information control the information that I got and make sure that the truth ultimately didn't get out Jason shape. It's the book the deep state, and we'll take a look at further episodes and examples of just what it is that is out there, and it is very real more with Jason Chaffetz. In.

This is another outrageous example of judicial overreach he said that the reasons given by the president? Or, arbitrary and capricious my answer to that. Is. Nonsense get yourself a dictionary judge Joe why why does the constitutionally constitutionality and legality of this action even matter like let's pretend it. Was all fine and on the up. And up wouldn't it be well within the president's rights. To remove, a program put in place by the same branch of. Government yes it it it. Is within his the is simply wrong you know this is this is under the rubric of these. These old cases from the nineteen seventies by liberal judges that wants a right has been, created, by, the government in order to take it away you have to have. Some over arching justification This is the corruption of judicial overreach and how it has infected our. Public policy the fundamental rule here is the president who, follows, another, president can rescind. The executive orders of the previous president that. He's black letter constitutional law and the fact that federal judges refused to. Recognize it shows why it's important to get Brett Cavanaugh, on, the. Supreme? Court could everything is going to have to work its way to? The supreme court and that's part of what what's going on on the, left is that they're just delaying delaying delaying the marvelous game the left cannot win through elections so it winds through? The, courts regrettably. This is a Republican judge John Bates he's. A nice, guy but he's just dead wrong let's talk about another judge Dana sabroto a. US district judge who said that the Trump administration is responsible for finding immigrant parents who were deported and chose to. Leave their children here or who were release East into the US for whatever reason without their children how is. This the administration's responsibility if the parents chose to leave their children here in wouldn't take them with them this is another example of, incomprehensible judicial conduct I'm not quite sure what it's gonna take to sort of get federal judges back into the role that the constitution. Gives them which is relatively limited one had like five or six federal judges. Basically running the government telling the president of the United States that he can't do things that he was elected to. Do that is absolutely absurd it. Is a kind of judicial autonomy that. Has gotten out of control. There is. No justification for what, that judge did and yet. It continues this is going to happen until we get. A full smackdown from the supreme court on the substance of each issue which is whether or not the president has already and then secondarily these nationwide Guide injunctions the. Judges issue from one little court? In podunk that's all gotta stop and the supreme court has to address that the. FBI has released some documents related to Christopher. Steele move onto him he's the the guy who compiled the Trump dossier the the one is filled with all sorts of half, truths and and skeptical. Information of in terms of how credulous we should be about it Christopher Steele FBI documents heavily heavily redacted we can find out almost no information this is almost this. Is almost a joke. Right well what we know now is that this is this is no. Longer even open to question notwithstanding the lunatics on, CNN MSNBC and the. New York Times and the Washington Post there was the plot a brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton and to frame Donald Trump it's real simple stop it it's not. Even open to, question anymore The Steele dossier is basically, unverified garbage none of it has ever been verified I keep hearing John Brennan and others say oh. Some of it's been verified but they never quite say. What ended has been. Verified and the reason is they can't what's really interesting is it after Steele was fired by the FBI for violating. Their rules as a confidential informant they actually continue to use him by having him report directly to Bruce Moore who was out of the deputies office under Obama in the Justice department and then. Bruce or acted steals, mouthpiece going back. To the f. b. i. and giving. Them the same type of bad intelligence and, the? FBI, because this is what they do made three o two's for every interview that they had. With Bruce source they're they're like sixty or seventy of these forms which Senator Grassley. Wants to make public, the bureau is refusing by the way keep your eyes and ears. Open over the, next week. Or two or a little bit more More there's going to be more stuff on five it's going to be fascinating it's going to get very ugly for Christopher Wray and rod Rosenstein. As evidence continues to mount that they are withholding information from congress and the public merely. Because they don't want to embarrass the, bureau or their predecessors at the department of Justice very interesting we will be looking for that Jaysekulow has come out and said that if Muller subpoenas the president they're gonna fight. Them all. The way to the supreme court But yet doesn't is fine the face, of what Rudy. Giuliani has been out saying to the last week or so well I think you're seeing a little good cop bad cop here I don't expect, the president to agree to any. Interview by Muller given the incredible illegitimacy of Muller's investigation the manner in which it's, been conducted the people who were conducting it. I think that the president is. Under no constitutional obligation in a case like this. Where he is not accused of a crime he is not a vital witness. There is no evidence that he has any information the special counsel has not provided to the president. In any of his letters any evidence that he thinks the president possesses which. Can get from no one else under existing law the. President is generally quote not. Available because he's very busy in this situation I think the, president will win any fight over subpoena I think Muller knows that and I think if, he were, going to, issue a subpoena he would've issued a long long Time ago. He doesn't want to issue it subpoenaed. Yeah I mean the president's in Bedminster a lotta time to think about whether, or not he actually wants. To do this we'll see what the outcome of that is Joe digenova thank you very. Much, really appreciate it as always seven fifteen now, wwl.

"Front of the judiciary committee but, there will be always requests for more and more and more. Without regard to any relevant to the. Nominee whatsoever they even want documents that came across his desk whether, or not he actually had anything to do with creating those documents creating input into those documents so this is where the delay game is going to be played by our democratic colleagues are going to. Try to put it off as long as possible with the leaders make clear we're going to have this before this vote on the The nomination before the midterm elections and my hope is we'll get the nominee confirmed in the judiciary committee and. On the floor of the Senate in time, for him to begin the October term of, the supreme court the. First Monday in October that would be to me the target John Cornyn is the Senate, Republican whip part of the leadership trying to push through the nomination of bread Kavanagh and we did learn late yesterday that, Senator Joe Manchin as you heard just a moment ago he will meet with Brad Kavanagh that Capitol Hill session scheduled. To take place on Monday our c. span cameras will be there to follow the event more from the Senate Chuck Schumer the democratic leader we must. Get all the documents from the Clinton library and time to analyze them so we can determine whether she should be Justice not some of the documents not a subject of the documents. Not the documents for just one administrative job Senator Grassley Said. All of the documents friends on the other side, of the aisle demanded it, for Justice Kagan they ought to, do the same for judge cavenaugh for the, last week Senator Feinstein has been. Ready to jointly request the same exact documents? Of judge Cavanaugh that Republicans demanded of Justice Kagan but our Republican colleagues are dragging their feet, and that takes a serious question what are judge cavenaugh and the Republicans, hiding why are they so adverse to documents when they were so eager for them with Elena Kagan if judge Kavanagh's the right man for the bench that, the Republicans say he is if he's a fair minded jurists that they claim he is why are Republicans hiding his full record from the Senate and from the American people some of. Our colleagues on the other side of the aisle are trying to say that they don't need to see the judges records from his time as staff secretary for President. Bush but just listened to what judge Cavanaugh said in two thousand ten When people ask me, of my prior experiences which of my prior experiences has been the most, useful to me as a judge I tell them all of them have been useful and I certainly drawn all of them but I also do not hesitate, to say that my five and a half years in the White House especially my three years as staff secretary for President Bush with the most interesting and in many ways the most. Instructive that's his own words and so we have sent this letter To Bush archivist it's the same exact letter. That senators Leahy and then sessions ranking Republican sent for Kagan with more on the bread. Cavenaugh nomination we are joined on the phone with Thomas gyping he's a senior legal fellow at the Heritage, Foundation here in Washington and you posted a piece at heritage dot org with. This.

"For all of the illegal aliens in the country and decimate immigration enforcement rather than this meticulously crafted bill that senator grassley put out at mitch mcconnell supported and the president supported which was a very generous offer i think too generous of an amnesty and not enough enforcement and not enough and to chain migration but nevertheless it was hammered out with republicans and so were too many republicans that rejected that in in favor of this shiny object put out or actually wasn't it this huge amnesty that they were willing to accept and go along with chuck schumer so what this does his show voters show other republicans and show the the house what's gonna happen when immigration legislation is raised in this current senate is worth mentioning the chuck schumer's of socalled bipartisan amendment actually envisioned an amnesty as i understand it not only for the illegal aliens that are here uh under the socalled daca program but for those who show up between now and june this which does seem to be to be uh way beyond the pale and let me ask you about the alternative president trump last night pegged the white house uh put out a statement on his behalf about chuck schumer and the radical schumer democrats that are in bed with the radical fringe of their party and don't really want a deal they want the issue for the election the president has thrown his support i'm very happy to say behind a piece of legislation that has been introduced in the house by judiciary committee chairman robert good laugh and a couple of others what do you and end of the center for immigration studies make of the goodlatte bill jessica vaughn and uh of the idea of of trying to pick that the standard against which all of the other ideas are are judged and and in particular upper habsah the standard on offer to the electorate in 2018 elections this fall well nick beal should be the standard it's it's should have been the starting point um and i wanted to goodlad bill does is uh tried to accomplish all of the recommendations from deep career officials at the homeland security and immigration departments as to where the problem was are an existing law and what needs to.

"There is clearly a feeling that the rhetoric has intensified at least among some of the trump supporters and the targets of this investigation like donald trump himself and there is increasingly a need to protect the investigation my hope is that my republican colleagues will speak out and stand up now is the time for that kind of courage in the public interest that let me just say there's not a lot of that going around back during the summer when muller was first named which is back in the spring there was widespread bipartisan support newt gingrich said he was a great joys even though newt gingrich is now talking about how corrupt and that he is and then during the summer when the president was appear to be threatening fire sessions there were republicans like lindsey graham other saying he cannot move against muller if he does we will stop him i have not heard those kinds of reassurances publicly from republicans recently have you senator grassley said this week that he believes that robert muller is a person of integrity and professionalism but you're absolutely right chris there have been few voices explicitly supporting the special cancer and pointing out that there is no evidence not a scintilla that political bias of any kind has infected or affected the special counsel's investigation is no evidence that any fbi agents political views have impacted this investigation and so you point i absolutely correctly that the rhetoric has intensified but there's no evidence to support so one of the key elements here is is is the obstruction case or the possibility that the president committed obstruction of justice when he fired james comey when he asked him to go easy on michael flynn was really interesting exchange this morning with the president on a key factual matter the white house has yet to answer which is when the president himself found out the michael flynn lied to the fbi.
