"Hi, because it's about whether or not we take seriously the allegations that four so many Americans far too many are reality of their lives. And when they came and spoke, what they were saying was the democratic process did not work for us here. It was broken. You all plow through it voting for him means saying no to Oldham for him means you say no to our experiences. And you say something. Many of us have been saying for weeks now, which is the most powerful judicial position in the land is a Justice of the supreme court and to simply plow through and I'm using Senator Grassley lane which explicitly and intentionally to plow through to be Senator Orrin Hatch who says I have not met her. I have not talked to her, but I don't believe Dr Ford to them to hear Dr. Ford actually share this is so imprinted on my memory. It was these two men because not only did they do something so vile to me as a human on the planet. They actually laughed about it. It required women from outside of the process to exercise the democratic process and go to. And I think Senator flake was the right person because we saw in that hearing he was pained. He was truly pained. He was truly convicted and you could see it on his face. You could hear it in his statement, and yet he did not quite feel able to stand up for a process that felt fair. And just it required these women to say publicly and insistently and aggressively you are telling me I don't count. And when they did that, they were not just speaking for themselves. They were speaking for the one out of four women who've experienced sexual violence in this country. Jovan, what do you think is really. Going on in the White House, west wing tonight. And this weekend. Well, the White House is really been forced here to play this waiting game along with the rest of us. This is something that the White House and the president did not want to happen. We know that the president now for more than a week has been deeply frustrated by the slow pace of this investigation. The White House watched along with all of us yesterday, the president watching I on Air Force One and then the White House yesterday as these testimonies unfolded, we know that the president speaking to aids spoke to how he felt emotionally impacted by the testimony that Dr Ford gave, but then watched judge Cavanaugh and felt like he done an excellent job. The president last night spoke at a fundraiser where he went on for more than an hour. You know, really praising Cavanaugh. The White House was on this high foot really thinking that this was a done deal, and then they watched as the rest of the nation did as the Senator flake bay this decision to kind of throw a wrench in this and delay it for a week. So what we're hearing from the White House right now as they are in this waiting game along with us. They are hoping that the number one, the FBI investigation doesn't turn up any new allegations, any evidence that would lend credence to a doctor Ford story. And they're also very much hoping that in this week, which we know is such a long time in Washington these days that that there's not a new allegation of new credible allegation. You know, we've seen these multiple allegations popping up by the day and in the course of a week who knows what's going to pop up. So what they're just hoping is that they can make it to the end of this investigation without any new information coming out. And then the Senate will vote will confirm him. And through this process that we've gone through, it will ideally in their minds, sort of lift at least some of this cloud over Cavanaugh. They can say, look, we have genuinely done this investigation. We've done what the Democrats were asking for the f. b. FBI investigated at at this point were back in Cavanaugh and Kelsey. There's also as a democratic operative reminded me tonight. There's a tr-. Wrap in here, potentially. Oh, sure. I mean, this is it's very difficult because it it on the one hand..

"When your junior and senior and high school and all of a sudden you got over it. Spend my understanding. That if you drug women and rape them for two years in high school, you probably don't stop. Here's my understanding. If you've lived a good life, people would recognize it. Lindsey, Graham Tyra got noticed across town, press secretary, Sarah Huckabee, Sanders posting this. After hearing that quote, Lindsey, Graham has more decency courage than every democrat member of the committee. Combined. God bless him short time after Graham's comments, Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah echoed some of Brett Kavanagh's testimony. This is a national disgrace the way you're being treated. Then in the middle of the dog, we have jobs cavenaugh man who until two weeks ago, once I get pillar of the legal community, there's been no whisper of misconduct by him in the time. He's been a judge. What we have are uncorroborated unsubstantiated claims from his teenage years after today's hearing Republican Senator Bob corker of Tennessee announced as we said, he would be voting for cavenaugh. There are several other important votes. We don't yet know about as we mentioned senators. Flake Murkowski Collins, Joe mansion met in private tonight. After the hearing, after their meeting flake told reporters, he is facing a tough choice. I mean, you leave with the foot doubts, whichever wedding. The nature of this. We're. There's no way you can leave that here in certain. You're completely right. He's right. She's wrong. She's right. He's wrong. You're never certain used to do the best you can. That's what we're trying to do back with us. Robert Kosta. Cynthia auctioning, Mimi Roca, Steve Schmidt, Robert, not since the heart injection and Pulp Fiction. Have I seen someone spring to life the way Senator Graham did today? It was right after dick Durbin. You'll forgive the phrase drew blood on the subject of the FBI, and let's face something here. It's a town of a lot of whispering and a lot of cynicism and people as soon as they heard Lindsey, Graham thought this was a. An audition for a cabinet position, perhaps Justice, perhaps Pentagon at some point in the future. I'll tell you what it was Brian, someone who was at the capitol day reporting. It was revealing. It was in about the Republican party. What a split screen Senator Graham versus Senator flake Senator Graham just like judge cavenaugh taking the advice of President Trump following the model of President Trump defined, fight, total political war in this charged America that we're all living through and covering. And then there's retiring Republican, Jeff flake of Arizona reluctant to embrace that kind of turn in the Republican party that kind of war mentality. When it comes to American politics, unsure of how he's going to vote. It's just a split Republican party and how they're coming down on this. But for now, it's that Graham Trump approach that aggression. That's really fueling senators in inside the GOP when I'm talking to them in the hallways and they're mulling what to do Cynthia back to something a point you started before the break to find for judge Kavanagh. Does that have. Mean, you believe she is crazy mistaken or lying? Yeah, absolutely. It's that simple. It's that simple because she's one hundred percent short. She knew him in advance these. This is not a stranger situation where like, oh. How you know that's all stabbed these new each other. She was dating a friend of us. They had been to parties together. She absolutely knew him, and there's no way she can look him in the shouldn't have to look them directly in the app, but she can look the camera the I say, he did this to me. And if you vote for him, you're calling her a liar. There's no way around that. Me Rocca in the world of sports, they call it a designed play, and I hate to reduce this to sporting terminology, but dick Durbin came into the hearing was two of them in mind, his first one, highly effective. What's your degree of certainty? His second one was to Cavanaugh about the FBI. I'm gonna play it. We'll talk about it on the other side..

"Judge Ted Kennedy next on those runways clear sir. It sounds like botanist saying that an FBI report is not worth it, but in reality Biden was admonishing Senator Orrin Hatch for reading directly from the report. After the senators had agreed to use it only as evidence to direct their questioning with the hope of keeping more wild claims from going public. In fact, the Republicans including Orrin Hatch who now opposes an FBI investigation of cavenaugh embraced the FBI's work. So chairman button. And they ranking member Thurman. When they heard about this the first time they immediately ordered this at the FBI investigation, which was very right thing to do so appropriate thing to do. Okay. So the reason that Republicans are have been opposing the FBI's involvement has to do with you said this is bad for Republicans and the Republican party at it may be bad for them in the long term. But in the short term right now, the Republican base has increasingly come to the view from what wouldn't can tell that Kavanagh's being railroaded and that the reason to have a vote is that this will never end you keep this going. There are more allegations, unsubstantiated untrue, and all and the purpose in view of many Republicans is to extend this past November the November, election date, and a possibility that Democrats, the marginal possibility of Democrats will take the Senate and therefore kill the nomination. So Republicans believe that politics is being played here, and I think it is. I don't think that that's why these allegations have caught fire. I believe the Democrats believe seriously and liberals people believe seriously that these allegations to be investigated. But is there a political context in which Democrats are sticking it to Republicans and trying to Zeltser them? Yes, absolutely. Well, there is at the same time, the Republicans if they hit. Started the FBI investigation requested a week a week and a half ago. If you look at the time frame by Thomas and hill, it would have been completed by now and we, we may be looking back a week from now saying they should've ordered it right today. Okay. But here's what I would say if that had happened and we were sitting on this panel the morning after Republicans had assented and Trump would've said he should just withdraw. You know what this is. The optics of this are really bad about you. If there'd been an FBI. I think the idea would have been Trump is pulling back Trump is trying to put this on the FBI, try this implicit pressure on Kevin to withdraw. We'll never, we'll never know. But I'm saying the counter positive, you're saying it would be better for them if they had done it a week. See now where I don't know that that would have been the now where where the hearing today, other than hearing from Dr Ford is meaningless, there is. No way that Republicans and Democrats really can absorb all the incoming over the past twenty four hours and make a decision on four accusations. There's just no way the FBI can. The f. b. went out on all four acusations and had said, we looked at this and they come to the same conclusions in New York Times. We find absolutely no corroborating witnesses for like number three, where there was basically homes turned into gang rape factories according to the latest accusations, then that actually would be compelling and Republicans actually could hold up that f. b. i. report. So they FBI says, there is no evidence this ever occurred. Remember Chuck Grassley wants a vote tomorrow morning at nine thirty. So there's literally process claims in any that may come down today during the hearing or after the hearing, they couldn't possibly absorb it. And John's right Republicans are worried that their this is. A delay tactic that they want that Democrats want to get past the midterm elections and the dynamic may change. They also say that the FBI could go into a long investigation. And in a he said, she said, not come back with anything conclusive and that would be a waste of. They don't know that they may be worried actually about something else. I think they may be right if the guy looked into opening the door. Else? Yeah, let's bring in Jim van highs the co, founder the CEO of axios Jim. Good morning. Good to see you. So let's talk about the stakes here today. Obviously, this is the swing vote on the supreme court of the United States..

"We'll it according to CNN Cohen says, there are other people other witnesses that could say that President Trump was informed about that meeting before it happened. What's next and figuring out the facts here. Well, I- investigators at the Justice department and investigators in. Congress shortly. No more than we do about this. They probably already have the identities of some of those people and perhaps have locked in testimony or interviews with some of them already. It's important to note that Michael Cohen was asked a question at least one question about this by congressional investigators. He did not say during that session that President Trump was aware of this Trump Tower meeting before it happened. So that is one point on which his credibility is under attack, and they're going to want to need to find out whether he's telling the truth, what he's telling the truth about, and whether anybody else saw or heard what he says he saw in her. That's NPR Justice correspondent, Carrie Johnson, Kerry. Thank you. My pleasure. Okay. Jeremy.

But Chad Johnson says, maybe Google was talking about the ethics and you'll love of America. Maybe that died last year, but the the fix for this is really easy. One you can go and we compete you and you can fix it. The other thing is you can just allow Google as a Senator Orrin Hatch is team did Jeff. Lynne says you can just correct the data a not make it a parentheses. We had PR son, because if you go on the page, you'll see that his team is tweeting out examples. The fact that he's not dead, although none of them was so current that they convince me that he couldn't have died, maybe the day that he read the newspaper, but that's just because we believe in conspiracy theories if we're on Twitter, Google communications end up with we'll, you certainly are alive and sporting a great sense of humor.
