"You were brought in as part of the legal team for a woman named Anita hill back during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings process. I wanna read something from page twenty five and I want to play a sound bite from Joe Biden, and then I wanna talk to you about it a little bit. So you're out on page twenty five that you and your team had put together witnesses who would cooperate wouldn't need a hill brought before the Senate Judiciary committee, that she had been harassed sexually by Clarence Thomas. The nominee for the high court, these witnesses I, quote from the book were never. Called though and to this day, I do not know why I can only speculate that the senators on the committee were extraordinarily uncomfortable with the subject matter of the hearing, and that they wanted to get out of this firestorm as quickly as possible Janet, I don't need to tell you this has become an issue, four, former vice president Biden, as he seeks at twenty twenty democratic nomination. He addressed this Elliott. We played that sound bite from former vice president Biden recently on the view. I am sorry. She was treated the way she was treated. I wish we could have figured out a better way to get this thing done. I did everything in my power to do what I thought was within the rules to be able to stop things. If you go back and look what I said, and then say, I don't think I treated her badly. I took honor opposite. What I couldn't figure out how to do. And we still haven't figured it out. How do you stop people from asking inflammatory questions? That's candidate Biden's explanation, sufficient for you. Yeah. I think you know, I think he's expressing regret for the way the hearing was conducted. And I think that in retrospect, we all know that hearings should have been handled differently. He was the chairman position. The committee, make sure the witnesses you just described could have appeared, right? And as I say my book, I still do not know why in fact, the vice president, I never have spoken about the hill. Thomas hearing, never spoke about it during the time that he was vice president, I do you know, think that the Senate has an institution hasn't progressed, much since the hill. Thomas hearing, because we saw the same kind of attacks on the witness during the cavenaugh hearing before and, and the same strategy by the nominee, which is to come in and just really got to blow up the place even though they're far more women in the Senate. Now on the committee itself asking questions. That's right. But when, when you saw kind of Kavanagh's. Unbelievable to me performance for a nominee for the supreme court, and then Senator Lindsey Graham kind of pile on it, it, it, it, it really was so reminiscent of when Thomas came in and accused the Senate of conducting a high tech lynching of an uppity black man, which really put the senators back on their heels. But back to Biden, that was a Republican chaired judiciary committee in the cavenaugh hearing, this was a democratically chaired committee running a hearing four Clarence Thomas. Is it relevant in this conversation about who the democratic nominee ought to be Joe Biden's conduct at that time? And does he owe more than he said, so far as as by by means of explanation? I think. It is relevant. His entire public service career is relevant is a long one. And so I think voters need to look at the entire career and other actions he's taken. He's been a lead to poorer the violence against women act, for example, he himself said a number of women on his staff, and, and the, like, so I think voters will have to look at the hill. Thomas hearing, vis-a-vis Biden in the context of his entire career. Now, the next question is, as he done enough to express regret and apologize..

"Look at the deficit currently in the states. It'd be like, hey, you're not gonna see me arguing that the deficit is a huge issue that we've got to address. But the average person doesn't know what the deficit is. And they don't care. They view it as do. I have a job to go to work to everyday that can feed my family the answer in two thousand nineteen is. Yes, let's let's talk about. Uncle Joe don't sleep Joe Biden this. This thing about him. Apologizing to Anita hill. I have an update this has been ongoing for past couple days. But we have an update about Joe Biden having to call up on politics because. Because he was kind of he was kind of presiding over the whole Clarence Thomas, Anita hill hearings right doing his job training impartial. He was Joe Biden has been criticized by the left for sort of not doing more to to protect Anita hill during the Clarence Thomas confirmation. Heaves he's even on record on the view last week saying I believed every word of hers from the beginning. Really? So he called up Anita hill apologized actually called her twice wants to apologize at once to ask allowed to relate that he apologized in a private conversation. Sounds like our dating career she wouldn't have in at all. She didn't accept his is. So I believe from the beginning of tell me real quick. Who are inspectors so Arlen Specter's probably best known as being the guy who came up with the magic bullet theory, which is the bullet that hit Kennedy like seven thousand times, but he also became a very powerful Senator later in life was a Republican from Pennsylvania and towards the end of his political career actually, switch to being a democrat. Go ahead. Well, and he factors into this. Because in his book Jew. He details a conversation. He had with Joe Biden during the Nida hill cod of the Clarence Thomas confirmation confirmed later by Biden Biden participated in the book in which Biden said she was a liar. That's a problem, isn't it? The headline is Arlen Specter's book Biden told me in ninety eight that he thought Anita hill lied about some things, and this isn't just a made of three Biden participated in the book in which Biden confirms. Hey, this woman was lying at her backside to the point where she didn't change her story. I was going to pull the plug on the whole thing. But Biden didn't ended up of voting he ended up voting against Clarence Thomas, though. Right. So so leftist progressive never before accused him of not believing hill. Just you know, he was far too timid in in trying to protect her and support her. He didn't attempt to Cavanaugh an innocent, man. And I love the fact that in two thousand nineteen the narrative from the Democrats as well, so many people believed in need a hill know at the time I seven at the time if you look at the polls of time fifty six percent of the American public said this won't lying at her backside. Only twenty four percent believed her. And plus Vecchi did get confirmed. It's a slam dunk this woman lion. She changed her story after Biden told specter that because they came back out. And she totally recanted half the stuff. She already said because she got it from everybody will say, look your story doesn't add up there's keeping holes in it was a doctor Blasi Ford on steroids. If you remember how flawed her story was the Nida hill was that on steroids. But up to this point all I'm saying is everybody the only thing everybody wants to Joe by new apologize for on his side of the aisle. Is that that that he didn't support her enough that the democrat party in two thousand nine hundred and once you to apologize for conducting a fair and impartial here? He's never. Yeah. Yeah. When you put it like, the son of the put up into this point. He's never been accused of being a skeptic, which is something on a totally different level for people on his side of the political spectrum being a skeptic of Anita hill. And now it's being in this, but this Arlen.

"Right. Well, let's explore that f. b. i. background investigation. And we have show run Gaba a former FBI counterintelligence agent, and now a senior lecturer at Yale university's Jackson institute for global affairs. Isha welcome to skulduggery. Thank you. So wanted to ask you about the FBI report background report on Brett cabinet seemed to me, you know, everybody is putting so much emphasis on what's in it. What might not be in it that the FBI was in kind of a really a no-win position here in trying to produce this report within a week. I think that's right. You know, it's important to understand that background investigation or not normal criminal investigations. They're not here to figure out conclude. Basically what happened. They are there to look into potential derogatory information that has surfaced about this candidate and basically provide more information in context so that the decision maker who is not the FBI would be the White House in this case can decide whether or not this impacts judge Cavanaugh suitability for this position. Now, in my opinion, I think that the right way to go about this for the White House to have said, we have these allegations. We need you to find out all the relevant information surrounding this and let the FBI do it. It'd make the determination on who exactly they would need to interview to cover all of their leads. I wrote a piece along with ambassador norm Eisen who had worked in the White House and reviewed these FBI. Background checks and a former counsel for house congressional committee who also review these yesterday, and we went through the allegations and found at least thirty people that should have been interviewed in order to make sure that they got information from anyone who had it as well as a sculptor. Tori information from people who may have had it. We'll limit follow up on this because thirty people and chief among them. I would assume would be Dr blazey Ford and Brett Kavanagh the accused and the accuser. And as I recall when a few days after the Senate Judiciary committee wrapped up the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearing and then Anita hill surfaced and sent her memo into the Senate Judiciary committee that very day the FBI FBI agents were on her doorstep, and they interviewed her and then they interviewed Clarence Thomas..
