Nancy Pelosi rips up copy of Trump's State of the Union speech
"When we last left we were talking about some of the observations from the state of the union and one of them certainly was Nancy Pelosi ripping up the president's speech and they didn't shake hands and what not and I think there are a lot of people who are writing about that had that awkwardness of it but I don't say it's awkward because the two of them are absolutely well they have nothing in common they do have this in common they would stand their ground so that to me doesn't seem like it's that out of it's certainly not out of character let's put it that way I'm always intrigued by what the headers today in other words what the major newspapers decide they're going to highlight the New York Post did the highlight Nancy Pelosi and what they wrote was the headline said this Nancy Pelosi shamed herself at trump state of the union address and then there were there's a picture of her holding it up and then there were several little pictures of her ripping it up they said trump employs these views spills over into the state of the union Pelosi rips up trumps state of the union speech in a stunning scene so that's what they chose to highlight that was the first thing that you saw all of their and this story by Michael Goodwin talks about the definition of insanity and says that you know you've been **** up for three years with the juvenile resistance where you were refused even to negotiate over big national interests such as border control control them what it seems you couldn't sink any lower than that cheap partisan impeachment you engineered you hit a new low during the state of the union this was from the columnist Michael good when talking about what he saw as Nancy closely and what the you know what what she did so now house Republicans were talking about he was talking about house Republicans should demand a censure vote and make it clear that they're strong disapproval of close these temper tantrum should stand them that they don't agree with it and let Democrat sure where they stand on that kind of conduct of the focus was all about that and then there were a couple of other things relating to the speech itself so that's the New York Post you know how we roll in this country you get a little of this new got a little that but I thought it was interesting that there were all those pictures up and that's that's what they chose to go with now you go to the left coast there's a and then you go to the LA times and they lead with what I live with the president touting economic gains in the state of the union talking about Republican lawmakers chanting four more years before the president began speaking and then really setting up an intensely partisan tone for the address on the night of the full let's face it virtual certain acquittal and the Republican controlled Senate so that whole impeachment thing wraps up tomorrow I can't imagine that it's actually the more flooding that leave my lips is not going to do that's not changing that's it I mean virtually that it even senator Susan Collins who waves in five different directions when she feels like it decided she's going to show up and she's going to vote to acquit the the presidents of pretty interesting and most of the headlines when they went with the state of the union sure the economic part of it leads with that and it it's interesting because even in the LA times the opinion piece there that was done by Michael my god I think his name is is the senior editorial writer he said even if the Republicans in the house chamber hadn't begun shouting former years would have an obvious that the president's state of the union address was a campaign speech by another name and it it he said it also shows Democrats should take note it was an effective one despite any even says despite exaggerations dubious claims that are already being dissected by fact checkers which is true he's saying the president's emphasis on optimism and is talk about building the world's most prosperous and inclusive society was laced with some score settling and it was he's right it was throughout that state of the union you could see that lurking there and some of the big moments including because this is something especially older people are scared to death about in fact my whole life probably when I was born they started saying you're not going to have social security benefits have you heard that raise your hand if you for that I have my infrared nationwide glasses on and I can see yes yes a lot of hands over there in Arizona some in Florida yep the managers and so the president said we will always protect your Medicare and social security any attacked the those who want to take away your health care take away your doctor abolish private insurance entirely he said he promised we will never let socialism destroy American health care because remember for example Pete bhut aged is talking about universal healthcare some directly that's what that's a jab at I don't know that him specifically because Bernie Sanders as the same thing and of course that keeps coming up again and again and again and again I'm gonna give you one more let's go in the middle of the country because I just think it's interesting to hear what the scribes ages which very very much along the same lines that I would would say and what are they ultimately leading with especially in a place like Chicago and you can look at the different newspapers the truckers give the trip and you course of the sun times the trim says there's certainly there is the feet booted judge saying that he holds a lead over Bernie Sanders in the Iowa caucuses but the race is too close to call and then what they highlighted was this tensions on vivid display as trump uses the state of the union to campaign ahead of the impeachment vote Nancy Pelosi reflect the speech as the president finishes the the unit arrests and in fact checking the president's claims in the state of the union address and then goes on to dissect it from there so pretty much that was the slice of what you got from coast

"senator susan collins" Discussed on KDWN 720AM
"Hour president trump's impeachment trial shifts to questioning from senators today it's a pivotal juncture is Republicans lack the votes currently to block witnesses that according to several reports Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell privately telling senators he doesn't yet have the votes to brush back democratic demands for witnesses Republican senator Susan Collins appears to be one of them according to what she told CBS news Amanda here is senator Susan Collins speaking to CBS in her own words right now either for Republicans who will be voting to have the trial I don't know the answer to that question yet we will hear at the at the president's attorneys complete their presentation today then tomorrow on Thursday will be an opportunity for those of us who have been listening to the case ten submit questions to both sides through the Chief Justice those to be written questions I've already compiled a great number of them I've got a window down my last and then on Friday for is likely to have the vote on witnesses I do know that but for the efforts that four of us made to ensure that that vote would occur that it's unlikely that we would have had that opportunity so I'm pleased said every senator will have the opportunity to vote on whether or not it decisional witnesses and documents are necessary it is very likely that I'm going to conclude that yes we do need to hear from witnesses how are you sensing a bit of a shift in the last twenty four hours there have been a lot more conversations in the last twenty four hours among members of the I. caucus in part due to the disclosures that are in John Bolton's book and also reaction to the testimony that we've heard on both sides I for one I believe that there's some gap some ambiguities that need to be cleared up and more information tends to be helpful when you're making such a weighty decision democratic demands gained steam with John Bolton asserting that president trump tight military aid from Ukraine to probes into democratic rival Joe Biden however president trump's attorney Jay secular ripped Bolton's book on Tuesday during the impeachment trial arguments he said what she's alleging it does not rise to the level of impeachment here.
White House impeachment team weighs in on Bolton claims
"In the house impeachment inquiry was beginning the White House claimed it wasn't fair and White House attorney said they would not be cooperating with the impeachment process house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler had said if the president's team wouldn't participate they couldn't claim the process was unfair then things stop house speaker Nancy Pelosi was holding the articles of impeachment saying the house was waiting to hear about the rules of the Senate trial president trump said let's move this along this is Renee a total sham from the beginning everybody knows it I've never seen in the Republican Party so United we got our last about as you know we got a hundred percent of the vote I believe the Senate is equally as well United now the Senate trial has begun discussions over what is fair still loom Republicans say an offer to let the president's team participating committee presentations of evidence came too late Democrats and the White House is blocking documents in preventing key witnesses from testifying Monday the president tweeted that the house never even asked former national security adviser John Bolton to testify but they didn't they didn't issue a subpoena like they did the Boltons aids trials government government filed a lawsuit to force the question should I listen to the president stay quiet or complied with the subpoena the judge dismissed the suit though when the house withdrew the request and moved forward with formal articles of impeachment so the question has been answered Bolton has since said he would testify in the Senate trial if the peanut Democrats do want to call more witnesses before the Senate Republicans say they should have done that during the house inquiry now though Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer notes there's new information Mister Bolton's book is further evidence that a large number of people for a quote in the loop on this scheme and now they are all covering up part of Bolton's book many script leaked over the weekend after it had been sent to the National Security Council for classified information vetting he says the president quote wanted to continue freezing security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the bidens I'm sorry about the timing AT standard is an associate editor and columnist at real clear politics because everyone was assuming we're speeding toward a conclusion here of the trial at the end of this week without witnesses but in terms of how long it is that the manuscript has been at the administration whether GM but the National Security Council or both and we know or dare and also distributed to a wider circle of top political people as has been the case with books like this in the past was it always the case that Bolton sort of you know hovered over this defense from the president's team and threaten to weaken it yes it was always the case that we knew he had information the investigation and the impeachment in the house had not yet revealed and it was likely to run counter to what the president's lawyers for saying schools in the tourney said that this clearly is a corruption of the NSC review process and Democrats say you know this surely should serve more as a catalyst to to actually hear from witnesses specifically Bolton when you look at sort of the the broad strokes in the big picture of what everyone saying regardless of any motivation does its way things doesn't change anything well it is a first hand hand the cal and in a way that contradicts the the defense that began over the weekend of of the of the president where lawyers came out on Saturday and said there is no evidence anywhere that this was a a quid pro quo on and that the president intended it to be that withholding of security eight so I think the senators on the Republican side are angry not because they think the John Bolton was squarely in the release of his timing and you know perhaps it's connected to his creed overbooked fails but that the White House might have known since December thirtieth that this is an incredibly damaging development and would poke holes in their defense and would make the argument for witnesses had this information been known earlier I I actually saw some defense from some Republican senators of John Bolton many of them are very close to him they believe his truth teller and that he wouldn't be lying in this book do you foresee a court fight I mean I know the court site really only happens if four Republican senators say yes to witnesses so we have to get there first we think that's gonna happen if John Bolton isn't just going to go on sixty minutes or something I mean I I just don't know just on anyways right he's decided in the eleventh hour that his reputation could be tarnished by the fact that he was holding out but now they're rushing the book to publication and body wants to be a patriot and he didn't wanna look redeem he's clearly conflicted so I don't know what exactly his line of thinking as but he has made it clear to us all along he intends to tell us something that we don't yet know and so if he foresees a court battle does he go into an open media setting I know that nothing can stop the house from trying to subpoena him and he could say yes to a subpoena I don't know but the Senate trial if that's gonna get gummed up this building just sit down in interview that that's I think a big alone looming question here now that he has that publication date since Fulton's many scriptures leak Republican senators who previously expressed interest in possibly hearing from witnesses have said this does strengthen the argument Utah senator Mitt Romney said he thinks it is increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of them who think they should hear from John Bolton Maine senator Susan Collins said the reporting on Fulton strengthens the case for witnesses it would take a least for Republicans joining Democrats in order for witnesses to be called so wise and Berg is former deputy independent counsel in the whitewater investigation it authorizes the calling of witnesses I would have to believe that Bolton would be one of them the real question is what happens after that do the president's lawyers make a motion in the trial to exclude the testimony under executive privilege and if they do what happened to that one I think most of us are curious about the reach of executive privilege and a lot of articles have been written over the weekend like trying to expound on what seems like untested waters to a certain degree we we don't really know how far executive privilege will will apply do we certainly not in the context of impeachment I don't believe there's any precedent certainly not in the federal appellate precedent gusting executive privilege in the context of an impeachment inquiry or an impeachment trial I should say so we're really operating without without a guide book I will say that if you look at history and particularly the accounting period and the and the first few administrations and congresses after the founding period there is some historical support for the notion that it might not executive privilege might not apply at all in the context of an impeachment trial the first is the very first time a president withheld information didn't called executive privilege then but the very first time I believe that a president withheld information from Congress was when I was in a Washington with held certain papers related to the negotiations of the Jay treaty which was very unpopular and he was asked for old papers and he gave the great majority of them but he did not give over certain papers that he felt were too sensitive and he said at the time this would be different if if we were talking about an impeachment inquiry so I think there is certainly a credible argument that executive privilege either would not apply or would be the standards would be much more difficult for successfully invoking executive privilege in the context of an impeachment inquiry or trial school in your legal mind how does not proceed does it depend on if you have a cooperating witness first is not of just how does the justice department pursue a case against somebody who says you know I'm I'm going to ignore your your invocation of executive privilege and I'm going to go ahead and testify or does it work in the reverse if you say to Congress no I'm going to resist your subpoena who's sort of the authority that that will make that determination ambassador Bolton has already said that if subpoenaed he will testify so I think how it would proceed would be the president's lawyers in the impeachment trial if that happened the boat Mississippi that need to testify will make a motion to the she just this thing the president invokes executive privilege and we we do not agree that this man to justice robbers can do one of two things he can make that determination himself number one do even apply a secular privilege here number two if I'm going to apply it how do we waive the interests of the president versus the interest of the Senate and conducting an impeachment trial now this is David keep justice Roberts says I'm gonna let you invoke executive privilege that would be the easiest for the the majority I think in the Senate because they would have to overturn him by majority vote to overrule but let's say the rules you know what executive privilege simply doesn't apply here it's not very strong here and by the way we do I think the president's already waived whatever in is an interesting situation because we can certainly be overruled but I think we have to think about what you're gonna look like at the two cases in the United States has ruled that Fulton have testified even in the face of an invocation of executive privilege by the president but we're gonna overrule the Chief Justice is what you're saying hold truth the reverse occurs in other words if somebody is resistant unlike Bolton to appearing maybe Samick Mulvaney or a secretary Pompeii or somebody like that and Congress you know the senators say you know excuse me you can't ignore our subpoena is due to the senators then take this to court or petition justice Roberts in much the same way that you you save what happens if the White House felt they were trying to get something through well that would certainly let's say the the the Senate subpoenas and Mulvaney to go into court he could he could make his argument first in front of the net at sitting as a court either thing could happen I don't think it would be bold enough to reassert this the notion of absolute immunity again because it is it is the

U.S. House to send Trump impeachment articles to Senate
"Let's get to impeachment we finally have some updates Fauria and I didn't leave the show with this today well number one because I want to make fun of the Democrats during the debate last night and all the craziness that went on there and then we had local issues because the legislative session is officially under way there a lot of issues that are being debated in Tallahassee that will actually impact your lives here in the state of Florida so we wanted to get some of those and of course during the course of the Senate trial we're gonna spend plenty of time on all of this but I do want to update you on where things stand today speaker Pelosi signed a house resolution to transmit the two articles of impeachment against president trump over to the Senate that followed the house approving resolution today appointing house managers for the impeachment trial representative Collin Peterson Democrat from Minnesota was the only Democrat to vote against the resolution the vote triggered the start of the Senate trial which has been delayed for nearly a month after the house approved two articles of impeachment against president trump one for abuse of power in the other for obstruction of Congress polo C. named seven house managers house intelligence chairman Adam Schiff house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler representative Val Deming's from here in Florida Democrat from the Orlando area representative came Jeffries representative Zoe Lofgren representative Jason crow and representative Sylvia Garcia I know hello see couldn't do this she had to include chef and Nadler among the house managers but it would have been much better if she didn't because they're just viewed in such a partisan light and you've got talented people bound Deming's she's gonna be good she's the former police chief of Orlando and she uses out during the hearing as well she did so you've got talented people that you could have handled this you don't need shift or Nadler because nobody's really gonna pay much attention to what they say there's just a view bait in about those two I can see where the mines take a step back from being doing the actual trial and maybe there is yeah behind the scenes manager that's how it should be I don't know you think shift is gonna take a step back from the cameras are now learn mom the with all the incoming that chef and never took from the president maybe plus he said like and I'll let you go over there behind a smart move I don't know if that's what's going to happen but still Lofgren she's been this is our third impeachment trial yeah you were mentioning this earlier she was a staffer during the Nixon Nixon and the run up to the Nixon impeachment was actually in peace okay and then she was in Congress on the house side when Clinton was impeached now she's one of the truck the the managers of the impeachment I'm sorry if you've been around for three if you were a staffer during Nixon you really still need to be in Washington DC well I think it goes to the depth chart the dancing clothes he was well yeah yes yes yes I'm looking at a trial of it you know fantasies over here yeah that's how I'm viewing rice really she was there for Nixon to still there but now that that makes total sense to have somebody like that we I kinda knowledge and experience on your house manager staff list in terms of what's next there's gonna be a few days a housekeeping and procedural work Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to hold the substantive part of the trial opening arguments in the queue in a period it's gonna hold that until Tuesday in order to give house managers and trump's defense team a couple of days to prepare on Tuesday the Senate is expected to vote on an organizing resolution the will lay out the terms for the trial it seems like they're going to model it very closely to what happened in the Clinton impeachment they always need a live witness issue yes which if they get the for Republicans across over right right then we'll see what happens then and also the the new reporting today is and how will the Democrats agree to a **** for tat as far as witnesses of they get right hold on yeah well they allow hunter Biden especially if they think under by it has nothing to hide you know we'll see how that plays out and let me get to that aspect several key Senate Republicans are insisting there be specific language in shoring of votes on whether to call witnesses and request documents not that witnesses and documents are allowed but just that there's a vote right on it aides to some vulnerable senators and moderate states including senator Susan Collins have said this language is crucial we know Susan Collins probably once witnesses and it sounds like Mitt Romney once that as well I've heard Lamar Alexander Makowski is always one to watch the numbers are close a democratic leadership aide told Axios that they will force votes on subpoenaing key witnesses such as trump's former

very least that will for some vulnerable Senate Republicans to cast tough votes lot of politics being played on both sides as to be expected some important numbers to remember Republicans would need fifty one votes to dismiss the case out right that's not gonna happen there's no way you're gonna have vulnerable Republicans like a Susan Collins vote to dismiss the case will not happen Democrats would need fifty one votes to call witnesses that's possible Republicans currently hold a fifty three forty seven majority in the Senate so Democrats would need for Republicans come over to their side to make the numbers work I think they think they have the votes I think they probably have the votes to at the very least John Paul at the very least I think you're gonna want to he he you're gonna have some Republicans are gonna want to hear from the former national security adviser one important note about today's resolution it gives managers authority to submit additional evidence that the

harness is gonna appear with Rachel Maddow Alan M. S. N. B. C. in a little bit and he basically says everything he did some of which was not good he did at the direction of the president Rudy Giuliani that's what he's gonna say tonight's in there there's a lot to one pack based on some of what we've learned about partners over the past couple of days so they're certainly going to be a back and forth and debate over what needs to be explored during the course of the Senate trial on the controversial decision by pelo C. to hold the impeachment articles for three weeks this is what she said on ABC's this week this past Sunday she said the tactic has produced a very positive results she said quote we feel that is produced a very positive result in terms of additional emails an unredacted information that's come forward Bolton has said he will testify if subpoenaed by the Senate I don't think the delay matters all that much in the big scheme of things you had much McConnell who held his ground he was not gonna be bullied by Nancy Pelosi should just didn't have the leverage some new information did come out including reselling the past couple of days although look this stuff it's not going to change the outcome of the trial the only thing that can really make this difficult for Republicans would be of John Bolton testified and have really really damaging information it also have John Bolton testify and he puts forth information favorable to the president and then it's a no brainer we don't know how that's going to go I think Bolton's announcement that he was willing to testify was the most important development that took place during the three weeks the pelo C. held the articles of impeachment what I go back to is the house were rushing through the impeachment process that was a mistake because now they have to push the Senate to do what they should have done I thought they went too fast if this was such a serious matter then you take your time and you do a thorough complete process instead they rushed through the articles of impeachment and then they kind of had to wait to see if more information will come out and then they learn one of the people they should of try to issue a subpoena for John Bolton he was maybe interested now in talking to the Senate it's it's just a mess and plus on top of this all it puts Senate Democrats running for president Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders in closure but some of the top spot she delayed this whole thing policy for three weeks and now at a crucial time for them right before the Iowa caucuses they're gonna be caught up in the Senate trial that's really at the end of the day that's where the biggest impact is the biggest impact is on the democratic primary and how it's gonna fact Iowa if I were those Senate Democrats I would not be thrilled with Nancy Pelosi at the moment your thoughts on the whole I hate you up to this point I have to disagree one thing is this notion that the investigation

"That America is the most pro Israel, less anti-semitic country on the face of the earth Jews have done magnificently here because of family and faith and academics and hard work. Israeli ambassador to America's said that this afternoon on CNN is the best place for Judah being anywhere in the world. And so what happened to them yesterday morning cuts at the soul of every Jewish-American? My boss is Jewish carpenter. And no matter what happens in political discourse in America that brings violence and the American media, the press CNN and their allies, always lecture, Trump Republicans and conservatives about our anger our rhetoric and our violence, but when progressives explode which happens on a regular basis, like stabbing Republicans sanding trucks on fire that say, I support Trump sending Sarah sending rice in in the mail to numerous Republicans, including Senator Susan Collins, or the children are the president whenever that goes on at no point are progressives ever lectured by the press, somehow, it's twisted and turned into Trump Republicans conservatism. Even when the president is the only one in American history to have Jewish grandchildren in even though the murderer in Pittsburgh. Had postings saying how much she hated Trump because Trump had Jewish grandchildren and Trump supported Israel. Somehow CNN is still twisted this thing and the something's wrong with Trump never mentioning the hatred. The radicalism of the left which exceeds what happens on the right? The whole Ferguson in Baltimore. Oh, the race writes the shooting at cops in Dallas in Baton Rouge came from black lives matter from the left never any connections. Forever. Made between the cop killers in Dallas during a rally a black lives matter, and then meeting in the White House with those same leadership of black lives matter saying what a great job they're doing and civil rights by the President Barack Hussein Obama and the media never said, wait a minute mister mister president. How do you meet with the leaders of a group advocating the killing of cops? What do we want dead cops? When you want them now, pigs in a blanket. Prime like bacon. There's never a connection made it doesn't exist. But Republicans and Trump are lectured constantly whenever violence takes place. It's always Trump's fault Trump's rhetoric.

He was also bashing Senate Democrats for torturing Brett Cavin on his family during the supreme court confirmation process before leaving Trump said cabinet has a great man who got caught up in a hoax. Anna charade created by Democrats of the Democrats so far left that will end up being. As well as being Venezuela. I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting Republican. I have no idea how this is going to play in a full month from now. Then the cavenaugh thing could seem like a long time ago. I heard a political researchers say, yeah, everybody's energized. Now, and there's a lot of talk about who's going to their holes and the rest of it. And she said a month is a lifetime in politics in terms of enthusiasm. It always has been an especially now, but as to the accusation of whether the Democrats tortured Cavanaugh, we tortured some folks a confession from Barack Obama. Meanwhile, Senator Susan Collins was undecided news member on Kavanagh's nomination. She waited and waited and she waited she did her due diligence read all the FBI background investigation notes and found even after the FBI has interviewed everyone whom Dr Ford has named as present that horrible night that she remembers every single one of them, including her best friend has no recollection of anything like bats. And. So if you keep him off the court because a her claim, I think that's insane. But all of the media based on interviews. I saw over the weekend just thinks it's a horror that that wasn't enough. Or they have figured out what their audience wants to hear is giving it to them. And now that she's caster vote for cavenaugh.

"Radio five, sixty key SFO. Hi, welcome back. There is a development. And I don't know what I think about this. I had my gut reaction to it. And then I backed off and I started thinking about it. It's a tweet from Senator Susan Collins, Susan Collins from Maine, she is buddy buddy with Lisa Murkowski. Lasca two Republican senators who are constantly thought to be on the bubble. And whenever there is a judicial nominee for any position. But especially the supreme court. I if there is any it is said that if there is any. This indication that that nominee might not be thinking the right way at abortion, and Susan Collins and Murkowski will vote with Democrats to kill the nomination. And because of this the Democrats are constantly applying pressure to both of them, and they have been working overtime to try to pressure. Susan Collins to commit to voting against cavenaugh because of their clams that he would reverse Roe versus Wade, and all paranoia that the Democrats have and she resisted. So the next thing they did they created a gofundme me I'm paying for a phantom candidate to oppose her. In the Senate campaign for main in that that that gofundme campaign or however, they funded it reached a million dollars. They were trying to blackmail her. They were telling her if you will commit devoting cavenaugh, then we'll pull this money out of the race against you. And we will not assist a candidate who opposed you. She didn't she didn't buck to that. When that failed they sent her and I'm not making this up. But I'm sorry. I have to tell you, but they sent her a three foot cardboard cutout of male genitalia. In another attempt to I I don't know what a bully her or offender, and she said, this is it I've had enough of this. I'm had enough of these anti cabin on tactics. So that Susan Collins, and she has been as I say target for much bullying and manipulation by the left. So she she sent a tweet out a little over an hour ago. Her tweet says I'm writing to the chairman and ranking member of the judiciary committee is that that would be Grassley and Feinstein, I'm writing to the chairman or ranking member to judiciary committee respectfully recommending that at Monday's hearing lawyers for professor Ford be allocated time to question judge Cavanaugh and lawyers for judge Cavanaugh. Be granted equal time to question. Professor Ford followed by questions from senators. My first reaction when I saw that was why don't we just cash in chips now and say the country as we knew it is over. We're now officially the Jerry Springer show in the United States Senate. Or or take your pick. Whatever daytime soap opera fair that people. Why are we serious about this? That lawyers for professor Ford be allowed time to question cavenaugh and his lawyers be allowed time to question. Her the way, she still has not responded to the invitation to show up to this thing on Monday. I think they ought to bag this and just do the vote on Thursday to hell with it. Just bag it and do it. But they won't because they're afraid of losing it now. But that doesn't matter the committee vote doesn't matter. Mitch McConnell can schedule a full Senate vote on this nominee without the committee voting. You know, protocol judiciary committee has a vote, and then that's supposed to inform the rest of the Senate that it's okay to vote for the guy or that. They shouldn't. I mean, that's how silly it is the judiciary committee votes, not going to determine how people in the general population of the Senate vote, but. We're actually because somebody said a letter to Dianne Feinstein. We're going to do all that we're we're gonna have a circus on Monday and code pink, and every leftist protest groups going to be in there. If you remember the embarrassment that happened during the confirmation hearings for four days Kavanagh's parents with their heads in their hands in a moment that. Any other time in American history would be one of the proudest most glorious days for an American family. That one of their children had succeeded and achieved in life to the point being nominated to be an associate Justice on the United States of Precourt. And it was turned into. Circus is not even the right way to describe what they did with the Democrats acquiescence in and letting it happen. I am certain. What should have been a moment of great, pride and. Overwhelming. Love and excitement was was turned into a. Despicable. Embarrassing. Spectacle. That was beneath all of the decency. This country is known for. And it was by design if they allowed that to happen during confirmation hearings. Can you imagine what this thing on Monday would become? So lawyers interrogate her and other lawyers interrogate him. As a nominee to be on the United States Supreme court and allegation that her lawyer says she doesn't even have to prove. And then after all that blowhard senators get their turn asking questions Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Schumer, dick Turpin. Susan Collins, then tweeted such an approach would provide more continuity. It would elicit the most information and allow an in-depth examination of the allegations. That is just. Whatever it is. It is a gigantic comedown Eddie rate. All this notwithstanding hurt tweet probably will send the Democrats into orbit with rage because they were counting on flipping her. They were counting on her saying before this even began she's had enough. This is the last straw. I can't support the guy look at what's being said I can't possibly, but that's what they were hoping Collins would say now she wants to. See a circus. Kavanagh's lawyer hired a lawyer, I should tell you this. Brent was hired Beth Wilkinson. Does the neighboring about who Beth Wilkinson is a she's the wife of David Gregory. Of CNN slash NBC. Be she represented Hillary Clinton staffers during the FBI investigation into Clinton's private server. Those staffers were Cheryl mills, Jake Sullivan, Heather Samuelsson, Philippe Reines. She's also said to be a stellar lawyer. And apparently one of her specialties is defamation. Attacking and defending defamation. Which is exactly what this is. This is an upfront attempt to defame and destroy Rhett Cavanaugh, so say yesterday, you know, we we oppose some of the nominees Democrats put forward, when's the last time you remember anybody on our side trying to literally destroy the life and career and reputation of a political opponent any more so than they already had. Bill Clinton was evidence. He did nothing was made up. And all those people defending Bill Clinton saying it doesn't matter. It's just sex Hillary Clinton, and all these other people responsible for trashing these women that came forward are. Now, the same people claiming that Cavanaugh is scum. And that this woman who's never said a word about any of this for thirty six years is eminently believable. After take another break. And I promise we'll come back and resume with the phones. Because a lot of people wanna way..
