"Assaults. Go unreported every year. We must listen to survivors in every day. We must seek to stop the criminal behavior that has hurt so many Schnitt show. We are listening to Senator Susan Collins of Maine as she is laying out the case. It seems why she's gonna vote? Yes. On cavanaugh. I have listened to many survivors of sexual assault. Many were total strangers who told me their heart wrenching stories for the first time in their lives. Some of our friends that I had known for decades. He would be exception of one woman who had confided in me years ago. I had no idea they had been the victims of sexual attacks rape fall for their courage and their willingness to come forward, and I hope that in heightening public awareness. They have also lighten the burden they have been quietly bearing for so many years to them. I pledged to do all that I can to ensure that their daughters and granddaughters. Never share their experiences. Over the past few weeks. I have been emphatic that the Senate has an obligation to investigate and evaluate the serious allegations of sexual assault. I called for and supported the additional hearing to hear from both professor Ford and judge Cavanaugh. I also push for and supported the FBI's supplemental background investigation. This was the right thing to do. Cristine Ford never sought the spotlight. She indicated that she was terrified to appear before the Senate Judiciary committee, and she is shunned attention since then. He seemed completely unaware of chairman Grassley offer to allow her to testify confidentially in California from California. I mean, it's Mr President I could not help keel that some people who wanted to engineer the defeat of this nation cared little if at all for her wellbeing one hundred percent her best. Some Ford testified that a very limited number of people had access to her ladder yet that letter found its way into the public domain totally engineered by she never gave permission for that. Very private letter to be relating. This is a masterpiece folks here, we Yup, we earned the medal of a fight that she never. Arguing about claims said she wanted to raise confidentially. Now one theory. I've heard his spouse repeatedly is that our colleagues Senator Feinstein Leach professor for letter at the eleventh hour to derail this process. I want to state this very clearly, I know Senator Dianne Feinstein extremely well. And I believe that she would never do that. I knew that to be the case before she even stated at the hearing. She is a person of integrity, and I stand by her. I also heard some argue that the chairman of the committee somehow.

"On Capitol Hill as senators took a key procedural vote. That started the countdown to a final vote tomorrow on the supreme court nomination of Brett Cavanaugh. There were four undecided. Senators and one of them Maine Republican Susan Collins took to the Senate floor for almost an hour this afternoon defending Kavanagh's judicial record and saying she had to stand with the presumption of innocence. Presented do not mean that her professor Ford was not sexually assaulted bad night or at some other time, but they do lead me to conclude that the allegations fail to me. They more likely than not standard. Therefore, I do not believe that these charges can fairly per bed. Judge cabinet from serving on the court as for the other undecideds, Arizona Republican Jeff flake and West Virginia Democrat, Joe Manchin say they will vote. Yes. Alaska, Republican Lisa Murkowski voted no in the procedural vote and suggests she will do the same tomorrow, but with Collins flake and mansion there appear to be enough votes to confirm

"Same interest groups have speculated that judge Cavanaugh was selected to do the bidding of conservative ideologues despite his record of traditional independence. I as the judge point blame whether he had made any commitments or pledges to anyone at the White House to the federalist society to any outside grow on how he would decide cases he unequivocally assured me that he had not judge a has received rave reviews for his twelve year track record as a judge including for his judicial from the American bars sociation gave him its highest possible rating. It's standing committee on the federal. Sherry conducted an extraordinarily thorough assessment soliciting input from almost five hundred people including his judicial colleagues the APA concluded that his integrity judicial temperament and professional competence, met the highest standards. Lisa Blatt, who is argued more cases before the supreme court than any other woman in history testified quote by any objective measure judge Cavin is clearly qualified to serve on the supreme court. His opinions are invariably thoughtful and fair MS black who clerked for an ardent admire of Justice Ginsburg. And who is in her own words and unapologetic defender of a woman's right to choose. Sets that judge cabinet fits within the mainstream of legal. She also observe. They judge cavenaugh is remarkably committed to promoting women in the legal profession. That judge Cavin is more of a centrist spend some of his critics maintain is reflected in the fact that he and chief judge, Merrick garland voted the same way in ninety three percent of cases that they heard together. Indeed, chief judge garland joined in more than ninety six percent of the majority opinions authored by judge Cavin a- dissenting only once. Despite all this after weeks of reviewing judge Kavanagh's record and listening to thirty two hours. His testimony the senate's advice and consent role was thrown into a tailspin following the allegations of sexual assault by professor Christine bless Ford. The confirmation process now involves evaluating weather not judge cabin. Committed sexual assault and lied about it to the judiciary committee. Some argue that because this is a lifetime appointment to our highest courts court, the public interest requires that jazz be resolved against the nominee others see the public interest as embodied in our long established tradition of a fording to those accused of misconduct. A presumption of innocence in cases in which the facts are unclear. They would argue that the question should be resolved in favor of the nominee. Mr president. I understand both viewpoints. This debate is complicated. Further by the fact that the Senate confirmation process is not a try but certain fundamental legal principles about due process. The presumption of innocence and fairness do bear on my thinking, and I cannot abandon them. In valuating any given claim but bis contact we will be ill served in the long run. If we Bandon the presumption of innocence and fairness tempting though, it may be we must always remember that it is when passions are most inflamed. That fairness is most in jeopardy. The presumption of innocence is relevant to be vice and consent function when accusation departs from an nominees, otherwise successfully record, I worrying that departing from this presumption could lead to a lack of public faith in the judiciary and would be hugely damaging to the confirmation process. Moving forward. Some of the allegations levied against judge Cavin illustrate why the presumption of innocence is so important. I am thinking in particular not at the allegations raised by professor for. But of the allegation that when he was a teenager judge Cavin, drugged, multiple girls and use their weakened state to facilitate gang rape fists. L Landis allegation was put forth without any credible supporting evidence and simply parroted public statements of others. That's an allegation can find its way into the supreme court confirmation process is a stark reminder about why the perception of innocence is so ingrained in our American consciousness. Mr president. I listened carefully. To Christine blah's seaports testimony before the judiciary committee. I found her testimony to be sincere painful and compelling. I believe that she is a survivor of sexual assault. And that this trauma has up ended her life. Nevertheless, the four win instant. She named could not corroborate any of the events a bad evening gathering where she says the salt occurred. None of the individuals. Professor Ford says were at the party has any recollection at all of that night. Judge Cavin forcefully denied the allegation center penalty of perjury. Mark chad. Denied under penalty of felony that he had witnessed an assault. PJ's Smith another person allegedly at the party denied that. He was there under penalty of per fess, sir. Ford's lifelong friend, Leland Kaiser indicated that under penalty of felony. She does not remember that party. And MS Kaiser went further she indicated that not only does she not remember a night like that. But also that she just not even know Brad Kavanagh. In addition to the lack of corroborating evidence. We also learned some facts have raised more questions, for instance, since he Saleh Gatien's have become public. Professor Ford testified that not a single person has contacted her to say I was at the party that now. Furthermore, the professor testified that although she does not remember how she got home that evening. She knew that because of the distance she would've needed or ride yet. Not a single person has come forward to say that they were the one who drove her home or where in the car with her tonight. And professor Ford also indicated that even though she left that's small gathering of six or so people abruptly 'em without saying goodbye and distraught. None of them called her the next day or ever to ask why she laughed is she okay, not even her closest friend, MS Kaiser. Mr President the constitution does not provide guidance on how we are supposed to evaluate these competing claims. It leaves that decision up to each Senator. This is not a criminal trial. And I do not believe that the claims such as these need to be proved beyond reasonable doubt. Never the less. Fairness would dictate that the claims at lease should meet a threshold of more likely than not as our standard. The facts presented do not mean that president that professor Ford was not sexually assaulted bad night or at some other time, but they do lead me to conclude that the allegations failed to me fame more likely than not standard. Therefore, I do not believe that these charges can fairly per bed. Judge cabin. From serving on the court. Let me emphasise is that my approach to this question should not be misconstrued. As suggesting that. I'm wanted sexual contact of any nature is not a serious problem in this country. To the contrary any good at all has come from this ugly confirmation process. It has been to create an awareness that we have underestimated the pervasiveness of this terrible problem. I have been alarmed and disturbed. However by some who have suggested that unless judge Kavanagh's nomination has rejected. The Senate is somehow condoning sexual assault. Nothing could be further from the truth. Every person man or woman who makes a charge of sexual assault. Just serves to be heard and treated with respect. The me too movement is real. It matters. It is needed and did is long overdue. We know that rape and sexual assault or less likely to be reported to the police been other forms of assault on average an estimated two hundred eleven thousand rapes and sexual assaults. Go unreported every year. We must listen to survivors in every day. We must seek to stop the criminal behavior that has hurt. So many we owe this to ourselves our children and generations to come. Since they hearing I have listened ten many survivors of sexual assault. Many were total strangers who told me their heart wrenching stories for the first time in their lives. Some our friends that I had known for decades, you have with the exception of one woman who had confided in me years ago. I had no idea that they had been the victims of sexual attacks. I am grateful for their courage and their willingness to come forward, and I hope that in heightening public awareness. They have also lighten the burden that they have been quietly bearing for so many. Here's to them. I pledged to do all that I can to ensure that their daughters and granddaughters. Never share their experiences. Over the past few weeks. I've been emphatic that the Senate has an obligation to investigate and evaluate this serious allegations of sexual assault. I called for and supported the additional hearing to hear from both professor Ford and judge Cavanaugh. I also pushed for and supported the FBI's supplemental background investigation. This was the right thing to do. Chris team Ford never sought the spotlight. She indicated that she was terrified to appear before the Senate Judiciary committee, and she is shunned attention since then she seemed completely unaware of chairman Grassley offer to allow her to testify confidentially in California. Watching her Mr President. I could not help Kiel that some people who wanted to engineer the defeat a business nation cared little if at all for her wellbeing. Professor Ford testified that a very limited number of people had access to her ladder yet bad letter found its way into the public domain. She testified that she never gave permission for that very private letter to be released and yet here we are. We are in the middle of a fight that she never saw arguing about claims said she wanted to raise confidentially. Now one theory. I've heard a spouse repeatedly is that our colleagues Senator Feinstein lead. Professor Ford's letter at the eleventh hour to derail this process. I want to say this very clearly, I know Senator Dianne Feinstein extremely well. And I believe that she would never do that. I knew that to be the case before she even stated at the hearing. She is so person of integrity, and I stand by. I also heard some barbecue that the chairman of the committee somehow treated professor Ford unfairly nothing could be further from the truth chairman Grassley alarm with his excellent stab treated, professor Ford with compassion and respect throughout the entire process. And that is the way the Senator from Iowa has conducted himself throughout a lifetime. Dedicated public service. But the fact remains Mr President someone leaked this ladder against professor forts express wishes. I suspect regrettably that we will never know for certain who did it to that leaker who I hope is listening. Now, let me say that what you did was unconscionable. You have taken a survivor who was not only entitled to your respect. But who also trusted you to protect her? And you have sacrificed her wellbeing in a misguided attempt to win whatever political crews say you think you are fighting. My only hope is that your callous sack has turned this process into such a dysfunctional circus that it will cause the Senate and indeed all Americans to reconsider how we value weights supreme court nominees if that happens, then the Pauling lack of compassion you afforded, professor Ford will at least have some unintended positive consequences. Mr President the politically charged atmosphere surrounding this nomination has reached a fever pitch even before these allegations own and it has been challenging even then separate packed from fiction. We live in a time of such grace. Great disunity as the bitter fight over this nomination both in the Senate and among the public clearly demonstrates it is not merely a canes of differing groups having different opinions. It is a case of people burying extreme ill-will toward those who disagreed with them. In our intense, focus on our differences. We have forgotten the common values that find us together as Americans when some of our best minds are seeking to develop even more sophisticated algorithms designed to link us to websites that only reinforce in cater to our views. We can only expect our differences to intensify. This alarmed, the drafters our constitution who were acutely aware that different values and interests could prevent Americans from becoming and remaining a single people. Indeed, the six objectives. They invoked in the preamble to the constitution, the one that they put I was the formation of a more perfect union. Their vision of a more perfect union. Just not exist today. And if anything we appear to be moving farther away from it is particularly worrisome that the supreme court the institution that most Americans see as the principal guardian up. Birch shared constitutional heritage is viewed as part of the problem through a political lands. Mr president. We heard a lot of charges and counter charges about judge Cavanaugh. But as those who have known him best have tests, and he has been an exemplary public servant judge teacher. Coach husband and bottom. Despite the turbulent bitter fights surrounding his nomination. My fervent hope is that Brad Kavanagh will work to lessen the divisions in the supreme court. So that we have far fewer five four decisions. And so that public confidence in our judiciary. And our highest court is restored. Mr president. I will vote to confirm judge cabinet..
"professor ford" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"So I was very precise about listing who was there very precise and then in an exchange with democratic Senator, Chris coons judge Cavanaugh asserted that the witnesses who attended the party that professor Ford said the assault happened that they have submitted statements saying that it didn't happen. And here's what Cavanaugh said. I just want to all four witnesses who are legend. -ly at the event of said, it didn't happen now on a green. Actually, we'd know that what the statements the statements at the witnesses submitted say that they have no recollection, which is categorically different than saying it didn't happen. So my question to you is in, we're repeatedly told the judges, tell juries that if a, if a witness or a defendant seems. Not credible or perhaps misleading in one area of their testimony that it's fair to wonder if they're being misleading in other areas of the of their testimony. Why does not apply to judge on now? I don't think someone saying I don't remember that happening is the same as saying it could still happen. Of course it could have if you don't remember something that means you have no way of saying whether it happened or not to the best of your ability. I don't remember that happening and I don't think it's helpful to do things like what Nathan suing, which is to mischaracterize what Leland actually said, but can I. An finish, but but this is such an important point and I wanna be as clear as I can and get the clarity of answers from both of you. Is it not categorically different to passively say, I don't remember something happening diff- isn't that different than affirmatively saying something did not happen. I think we have to keep in mind. This was thirty years ago. I mean like many people trying to assess what's going on here. Could this have happened? What is an honest examination of the testimony? We have of sworn statements. I mean, I, I'm glad I didn't know about Brett even better than I did because I might have been having to hire a lawyer to come up with legal language to say what I know without their exposed exposing me to any possibility of then being prosecuted or even persecuted in the media. So if you were to ask me, hey, Annika, what happened you at this one night in high school? Have you ever been to a party where someone sexually assaulted say, I don't remember anything like that, but if you leaders came and said, well, we have evidence that you were at this party and it turned out somebody was. I didn't know that happened, but now I've said it didn't happen the safer thing. And I think most lawyers would agree is just say, look, just say, you don't remember that happening. Leland says, I don't know him. I don't remember meeting him. I don't remember being at a party like that, but you can't say definitively about something from thirty years. Maybe a little bit younger. It's easier to remember high school. So Annika actually should've asked you this much earlier, but you worked with Brett Kavanagh in the White House for over a little over a year. I mean, tell us who was the Cavanaugh you knew then and were you surprised by the Brett Cavanaugh you saw last week. So when he came out roaring, that's how I would say colloquially because I believe people should be allowed to be colloquial even when they're testifying for the judiciary committee when he came out roaring, I thought, okay, this is probably not gonna play. Well, I've seen that Brad Kavanagh. There were things you know on the job when it's eleven o'clock at night, somebody's mess something up. You will become angry. People do. And I, I saw him at times become frustrated about things, and I thought, well, that's not gonna play well, and people are probably gonna characterize him as an angry man and you know. But I think he is legitimately frustrated and upset at how he's been treated and how he's been characterized internet. Nationally as someone who is a gang rapist runs rape, trains. It strains, you know credulity, but even it even without being my opinion about some of the less credible claims working with him..

"Got more behind the scenes information more contacts than anybody more friends behind the curtain. Sean Hannity is on twenty five till the top of the hour from Washington DC. It's the Sean Hannity show. What an unbelievable day this. These hearings still continue Orrin Hatch now is talking about the fundamental fairness. He actually said this is worse. I never thought it can get worse than what they did to Robert Bork, and it's gotten worse. And I think Lindsey Graham just stole the moment on top of Dr. Doc. I'm sorry, judge cavenaugh himself is opening statement was so powerful. Well, Lindsey Graham, pointing this is all bene strategy of the Democrats. She had this day. I knew in early July about these allegations by professor Ford and Dianne Feinstein had this information, you know, Lindsey Graham asked ask judge cabinet. Did you know that when you met with Dianne Feinstein that she had already referred professor Ford to an attorney who she met privately with by the way, the attorney is the one that didn't believe Paula Jones. The attorney is the one that stuck up for Al Franken. And Feinstein goes into this meeting big smile on her face. They knew let me know if this gets out of control with Senator coons here. They knew that. This was this was in their back pocket, and they were going to hold it in his Lindsey Graham said this is their hope the reason they keep focusing on FBI investigation. And we'll play Joe Biden. Again, Joe Biden said the reason why you can't rely on an F B I report. You wouldn't like it? If we did because it's inconclusive. So when people waving FBI report before you understand they do not reach conclusions. The FBI is set on this specific matter. It's not an FBI matter. It's not a criminal matter. And on top of all of everybody knows they want the delay. What they want is the election to happen. They wanna roll the dice and hope and pray that these tactics end up with no supreme court appointment, so that they can get it, and they can take it. And that's what that's why they never released the information. That's why she sat in in thirty two hours worth of hearings. All the Democrats knew. And they didn't bring it up. That's why they finally forced the issue at this late hour, and I think if we were ever to get to the bottom of it, you know, maybe these other allegations, there's a whole fishing expedition going on behind the scene that none of us knew about. And I'm you know. If you know, I said to my I want to go back to what I said to Gomez the other day yesterday's by best friend from third grade. And they said, you know, John every day in election year been twenty six thousand nine I pointed out something that I knew of the rest of the media wouldn't point out. And I said that was Obama's record. Because if you say it once it just goes in one ear out, the other we don't people listen to radio, you're in your car. You're driving home you get home. My hope is you never leave your car till the show's over. That's my hope. But sometimes the kids are screaming the dog comes running out. You gotta leave my show. I hate it. It's not good for me. But the point is there's a reason, and the reason is it was so bad. I wanted every single person that that listen to the show to know how bad it was. And so I would repeat it. And similarly, there's a reason that I point out before every election even begins then we're only forty days away from this. What I call the most important midterm election our life, and the reason I've been telling you it's important because we know what their agenda is they want to impeach the president. They want to eliminate ice. They want open borders. They didn't like when you got a tax cut. They liked it better. I told you the bureau of labor statistics. Yeah. People pay more in taxes than they do for food and clothing combined for three years the last three years of Obama's presidency. So they want their crumbs back. They say that the tax cuts crumbs. Meaning, you know, a thousand two thousand dollars to the average American family. I don't think it's crumbs in somebody that started my adult life with two hundred dollars an old stone Bank in Rhode Island. I didn't have any money. Those crumbs matter especially to people that, you know, all do all the working and bleeding and dying and contributing in this country, not these people that, you know, on their high horse in Washington that live the lives of luxury with their own separate healthcare plans. Not the ones they burden us with you know, if they have issues involving their staff, well, they'll just settle it with taxpayer money, but not tell you or there are many barber shops, and their many workout rooms and gyms that they build for themselves and their Senate, dining, rooms, etc. And I'm just telling you that there is something insidious when I point out every two in four years that it is like clockwork elect Republicans black churches are going to burn crosses o'byrne. That was a nineteen ninety eight Missouri radio ad or the James Byrd ad that said, it's like my father was killed all over again talking about George W Bush not supporting hate crimes when he supported the death penalty the death penalty for the guy that was the people responsible for the for the evil. Deaf dragging death of James Byrd. Or Al Gore changing is entire tone delivering cadence when he goes before predominantly African American audiences or publicans have the wrong agenda and goes into this whole thing that he does and then telling a predominantly black audience. They don't even want to count you in the census. That is playing the race card, and I can go through numerous other examples. Now, what does this have to do with in the case of judge Cavanaugh? Light like elections, you're racist. Sexist poor Mitt Romney Mitt Romney made the mistake of having women's resumes imbibers because he was thinking of hiring them. And somehow that was viewed as misogynistic and sexist everybody. You know, John McCain who recently passed away everybody said the nicest things about John McCain. But when he was running for office. There are a lot of people trying to call him a racist and everything and much more on top of that. You know here. I didn't get along a lot with John McCain and issues, but I fought for him to be president. All these people were smearing. There's something if your strategy is going to be smear, and slandering and character, assassination and bludgeoning opponents because you disagree with them, whether it be elections or supreme court nominees. Or maybe you're bludgeon the whole country with a bunch of propaganda and lies about Russia. You know, there's a problem with that too. Or maybe it's Harry Reid who says Mitt Romney hasn't paid taxes in ten years, and it goes viral and then after the election once Obama wins he's asked about what do I care? We won. Is that the ends justifies? The means. There's a there's a there's something that has happened to the modern Democratic Party. There are there's no such thing anymore as a moderate democrat. They want to stop. They they can't take that they lost this election, and they want to reverse it, which is why the dossier was used and disseminated. Imagine this our own government at the time, our top Intel agencies CIA director's you got, you know, top agencies leaky and unverified, phony political Clinton bought and paid for Russian dossier put together by a foreign national that doesn't even believe his own dossier when pushed under oath in an interrogatory. But if it's a good lie if it works if the ends justify the means that we get the vote, we get the votes. And then after the election, let's bludgeon Trump with it also nine months in. They had nothing about Trump Russia collusion. So we'll leaked the contents of the dossier. Before an election. It's hookers in Moscow in the Ritz Carlton urinating on Donald Trump's bed. Golden showers says they say unverified uncorroborated and totally debunked. But let's let the American people think that before they go out and vote. And then after the election, let's use the same dossier. We'll start an investigation, and we'll leave it. So open ended that we can start investigating loan applications of people that were in Trump's vicinity for one hundred days. It is or let's let's Bork judge Cavanaugh, or let's let's let's do what we did declared Thomas, and if the first allegation doesn't work then try another one, and then we'll take avenue Diese knows don't presumption of innocence anymore in America. If you cannot reward these people for this. There's not going to ever be people in America that wanna serve anymore who would want to go through this. With young daughters. You know in many ways. I made a decision just by getting behind a radio microphone and given opinion. I've open myself up to this. And I know a lot of people they, but there are people in government that do wanna serve this guy who kept a nineteen eighty two calendar of his life. And was number one in his high school class, and a top athlete. Who has just about everybody that's ever touched. He's touched in his life saying how great he is wanting to be number one working hard to get the Yale. I I wasn't as good as this guy when I was younger. I can tell you that right now. Want to go back to my high school years? I'll give you a laundry list. I have nothing to hide. But I'm just telling you it is it somebody. That's that. Strive to be great and good and found a passion and his passion was the law. His passion was the constitution. And the very thing that he loves sworn to uphold. We don't even give this guy the benefit of the doubt. And I will tell you we do this again, and again, and again and again and again. And it's all politics. In all the years when when Obama was president I was so angry that he'd he would he would discuss these high profile race cases in America, like the Cambridge police acted stupidly. That's rushing to judgment. He knew nothing. Trayvon could be like my son. He knew nothing no due process. Rush to judgment. How many in Ferguson? He was blown away was walking away from officer Darren Wilson. But there was testimony that nobody had heard yet from the neighbors that said, no, no, it's exactly like the police officer said. Or the fact of Freddie, gray was beaten and murdered by cops in Baltimore. And so many people rush to judgment fed by the media. And the media is just as complicit as the Democrats in these smears in every case or Duke lacrosse. I mean, it's what happened in professors taking out ads in newspapers. No due process. No presumption of medicines. Guilt by accusations there bunch of uh snobby rich kids, they play lacrosse bunch of a bunch of athletes. If we don't get this, right? We are gonna be worse off for as a country because of it. The media can't be rewarded for their failure again, and again, and again and again and again. And they're wrong. So often. And the same with the Democratic Party. This is their playbook. This is now who they are this defines them in elections two and four years. This defines them in supreme court nominations. And the only thing reason may be that judge cavenaugh will get Senate confirmation. Is because of his passionate believable testimony that he gave today. There was nobody else that everyone else has spoken for him. And then I'm watching Senator Blumenthal. Now here ready made up his mind day, one as Schumer made up his mind day, one as most Democrats made up their mind day one. And it didn't matter who they picked who the president picked to fill the vacancy of Anthony Kennedy. We've got Senator Graham on Hannity tonight. I wanna remind you you got to protect your good name, your reputation, your finances your Bank account your retirement account. There's only one way to do it..

"Hi, twenty five now til the top of the hour from our nation's capital from the swamp from the sewer on the eve of the testimony. Well, we're not sure specifically if she's coming I would expect now she's probably going to come and that would be professor Ford. And of course, judge Cavanaugh then we have this new allegation, but just to just lay a little bit more groundwork. And then we'll get into the specifics. So the Senate Judiciary committee finally gets notified about something that the Democrats have had since July and Dianne Feinstein had since July another question the very few seemed to bring up is. She said she didn't want to go public. And that was her statement and the only. People that had the information with the Democrats how did it get leaked? But we'll put that aside for a minute. Once they Republicans found out they offered an opportunity for her to come and testify before the committee and reopen the hearings and tried to accommodate professor Ford, private or public under oath, and or they could send people to her. And then a bunch of conditions were said, and we have to go last not not judge cavenaugh, and it usually doesn't work that way the accuser will make the accusation. And then the person that is being accused we'll get a chance to respond and defend themselves. Anyway, so eventually that happens, but in the interim, even though it was only a Monday of this week that the Republicans finally got their hands on the original letter that professor Ford center Dianne Feinstein in July. Well, once they found out the names, they did their due diligence and their investigation and the identities were finally learned of the four people. That Dr Ford came claimed were at the alleged event where the abuse took place, and then the committee reached out to each person for a confidential interview each person denied literally. And the having any knowledge of what Dr Ford was saying. And then the second allegation comes out, Ronan Farrow, Jane Mayer, and that comes out in the New Yorker, and in that case a woman by the name of Deborah Ramirez, tells the New Yorker again in the early eighties cavenaugh exposed himself at a drunken college party when he was a freshman at Yale, by the way, I'm not even mentioning the two hundred and twenty plus people from when he was in high school in college and law school in in the Bush administration and women that clerk for him at cetera had said just the opposite about him. And she said in her own words that she could not be totally sure of Cavanaugh was the perpetrator the New Yorker goes on to say that she quickly was inebriated at the party. She told the New Yorker that she was foggy meaning mentally foggy because of the alcohol and slurring her words, she even acknowledged in the New Yorker piece that she had significant memory. Gaps and the New York Times interviewed last week. Now several dozen people in an attempt to corroborate her story that means they were trying a New York Times, they hate Donald Trump. And they came to this conclusion they could find nobody with any first hand knowledge of this event. And they also discovered that MS Ramirez was contacting former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them she told some of them, she couldn't be certain Mr. Cavanaugh was the one that exposed himself. Now, you would think under those circumstances that's case closed, but not in the minds of people that rush to judgment. And so now, we have Michael avenue dotty. And a client that he is representing her name is Julie sweat next. She put out a declaration, and it was made public day. I she goes through her biography et cetera. Then she says, I I met Mark judge breath Cavin on approximately nineteen eighty nineteen one. I was introduced to them in a house party that I attended in the Washington DC area. I observed Mark judge and Brett cavenaugh has extremely close friends during the early nineteen eighty s when I knew them and interacted with them, I would describe them as joined at the hip, and I consistently saw them together in many social settings. There's no question in my mind that Mark judge has significant information concerning the conduct meaning of both of them. And I guess in the case of of recommen- all. And she goes on to say that you know, I attended well over ten house parties in the Washington DC area during the years nineteen eighty one to nineteen Eighty-three. We're Mark judge. And Brett Cavanaugh were present these parties were a common occurrence in the area and occurred nearly every weekend during the school year and on numerous occasions at these parties, I witnessed Mark judge and Brett cavenaugh drink excessively and engage in highly inappropriate conduct including being overly aggressive with girls and not taking no for an answer that is conduct included fondling and grabbing of girls out there consent. Now, we gotta stop here for a second. You know, when she's alleging that he drank excessively engaged in highly inappropriate behavior, fondling grabbing a girls. They're not mentioning the names of the people who they did this to and I would think with the memory that you have that that would be something that would be very pertinent to the discussion. You know, she doesn't list who was the target of Brent Cavanaugh supposed- abusive and physical aggressive conduct. And you know, she said she heard things that happened during beach week that she witnessed such conduct on one occasion. But she doesn't say what happened anyway. I observed Brad Kavanagh drinking excessively at many of these parties and engaged in abusive and physically aggressive behavior towards girls, including pressing girls against him without their consent grinding against girls attempting to remove or shift girls clothing to expose private body parts. I likewise observed him verbally abusive towards girls by making crude sexual comments to them that were designed to demean humiliate and embarrass I often witnessed Brad Kavanagh speak in a demeaning manner about girls in general as well as and I can't read this part of it for some reason on my page. I also have witnessed Brad Kavanagh behave as a mean drunk on many occasions at these parties, I've been told by other women that this conduct also occur during the summer, months and ocean city Maryland on numerous occasions, I also which witnessed such conduct on one occasion in ocean city, Maryland during what they call beach. This week. I have reviewed breath Kavanagh's recent claim on Fox News regarding his alleged innocence during his high school years and lack of sexual activity. This claim is absolutely false. And ally eyewitness Brad Kavanagh consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early eighties. And during the years eighty one to eighty two I became aware of efforts by Mark judge and brek Cavanaugh and others to spike the punch at house parties that I attended with drugs and or grain alcohol, so as to cause girls to lose their innovations and their ability to say this caused me to make you know, an effort to avoid the punch in other words, she's saying at these house party, she attended with drugs and grain alcohol, so girls will lose their inhibitions and their ability to say, no and this caused me to make an effort. To purposely. Avoid the punch of these parties I witnessed efforts by Mark judge Brad Kavanagh and others to target particular girls. So they could be taken advantage up. It was usually a girl that was especially vulnerable because she was alone at the party or shy. And it goes on. I also witnessed Mark judge and Brett cabinet on others 'cause girls to become so inebriated so disoriented. So they could be gang raped in a side room or bedroom by a train of numerous boys. I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside of rooms at many of these parties waiting for their turn with the girl inside the room. These boys included Mark, judge and brick Cavanaugh at approximately nineteen eighty-two. I became the victim of one of these gang or train rapes when Mark judge and brek Cavanaugh were present shortly after the incident I shared what a transfer. Fired with at least two other people during the incident. I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to get these get off the boys that were raping me. I believe I was drugged using quay lose or something similar placed in what I was drinking. I'm aware that other witnesses can attest to the truthfulness of each of the statements above I declare the penalty of perjury. That's the whole state. I wanted to I wanted to read it to you. Because I want you to hear this. And it's important. It is very important. One of the first things we have got to ask if she went to ten there's what there's what Lindsey Graham said in a statement. I have a difficult time believing any person would continue to go to according to the affidavit ten parties over a two year period of time where women were routinely gang raped and not report it why would any reasonable person continue to hang around with people like that. Graham continues. Why would any person continue to put their friends and themselves? Endanger, isn't there some duty? To warn others Graham said it was outrageous to believe that cavenaugh behaved in such a manner, and any hope the Senate will see this for the smear campaign that it is any pointed to the dozens of women who have come forward recently to advocate for Kavanagh's character. He says from my view, just when you thought it couldn't get any worse. It just did the lawyer to porn stars is now just taking this debacle to an even lower level Graham said, and I hope people will see the highly suspicious. You know, you have to ask these questions. How is it that if this behavior is happening? Where girls are getting drugged and raped. If it happened at one party if it happened at two parties, if it happened three parties, and again, she's witnessing this until she claims at one point it happened to her I can't think of more horrific dark evil treatment of women. Then what she is describing it is a fair question to ask why didn't Amy of these people thirty six years ago, stop this and go for help. If you saw your friends or other girls, a line of men outside of a room the knowledge was there that people were being drugged and raped and they were waiting in line for their turn. Why was that never brought up? You know, ten specific incident. She is identifying here where you know, the WPA New York says. She claims she was gang raped in the presence of Brett Cavanaugh and his friend. Mark judge admits that again, she went over ten of these parties where women were raped before. She herself was attacked and the way she tried to avoid being rape was not drinking the punch is what she's saying. Instead of telling people that, hey, this, these are evil horrible people. And you know, so well over ten of the parties that she attended including many parties where boys waited for their turn to gang rape or girl inside a room. And this was well known. You know, somebody's got to explain what universe. That this would be allowed to happen and kept secret for all of this time. You know, there's a lot more at stake here than I think most people know. We are watching now Amy lines of civility and common sense. Now being crossed. It is a, you know, I I have no there's no line at this point. Democrats are not willing to cross to prevent Brad Kavanagh to become a supreme court Justice in spite of this being a forty year period forty year track record of people saying just the opposite of this guy, you know, targeting vulnerable young women now they're not named here. You know, we don't know she hasn't said specifically, she said they were lined up boys lined up to rape them after they were drugged and inebriated, and whatever they put in this punch that she herself was avoiding. And that Brett was waiting outside a room of a gang rape. Not that she saw the gang rape but waiting outside. But we know what was going on inside the rape inside the room. Where rape was was occurring. This is you know, this is. This even I am shocked at how low Democrats can go at this point. And I think in thirty years having learned the lessons of Richard jewel, Duke, lacrosse, Ferguson, Missouri, Cambridge police, Freddie, gray in Baltimore. The Trayvon and everybody rushing to judgment having witnessed every two to four years. Republicans are racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic, Zima, phobic, islamophobic. They want dirty air. They want dirty water. They want children to die. And they wanna throw granny over the cliff all of that is bad enough. What they did to Bork was bad enough. What they did to Clarence Thomas was bad enough. What they say about conservatives every day is is this is liberal radical leftism. That we've never seen before. Now. The big question is how will America respond house the Senate gonna respond? We've got an election in forty one days forty one days. All right. When we come back, Joe digenova, Victoria, Tensing Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. We're expecting a press conference with the president. I assume this will be a topic that comes up is still at the UN. Hey, if you don't sleep well like me, you have insomnia..

"Large as we are with the fastest growing economy in the world up ten trillion dollars. So we're very proud of that. Thank you very much. All right. That was the president. He is at the UN. And I was the irony. I know axios had written today, the deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, it verbally offered to resign in discussions with the White House chief of staff general Kelly, according to a source close to Rosenstein, anyway, it was a media buildup all day that culminated in the president say, no, we're actually meeting Thursday. Sarah Sanders had put out a statement about this saying that at the request of the deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, he and President Trump had an extended conversation to discuss the recent news stories that of course, being the New York Times story that in a conversation with notes taken by Andrew McCabe. Well, who's the no liar and also Lisa page that in fact, he had talked about oh, do you want me to record the president? Do you want me to in other words when he goes to the White House to show chaos, and then we can invoke the twenty fifth? Rod Rosenstein is denying it. Anyway, because the president is at the United Nations General assembly, which is awful if you live in New York City or work in New York City. It means your life is a living hell and just hoping that maybe the United Nations finds another home one of these days some place beautiful on well, they're actually on the water sorry. But anyways, so rod Rosenstein is going to meet with the president on Thursday when he returns to Washington, I have a lot more on all of the drama and the coverage that has gone on. If you have not been following the news today, there is a lot to get to as it relates to judge cavenaugh, which is where we begin by the way, I want to give a quick update to our stations across the Sean Hannity show network. We expect the president is going to be holding a press conference in about thirty three minutes from now three forty five eastern time twelve forty five Pacific. And when that happens we. We will be covering it most likely in its entirety. We also have Sarah and Greg on the program today people that know judge Cavanaugh will also be joining us later in the program today. So we have a lot of ground to cover in. The course of the day. We have a 'nother woman that has come forward. And I'm gonna get to the specifics of that case. But let me I take you back to Friday night. And there was a ten pm deadline. If you're with us all last week, we were reporting the back and forth, the raising of the bar almost on a daily basis by a pretty liberal activist attorney of professor Ford. That's neither here nor there at the moment. But somebody who didn't believe Paula Jones, nor did she think Paula Jones had a case and I'll get back to that. And somebody who had defended Al Franken, which only means the professor Ford's attorney is not consistent on this particular issue and happens to be a pretty solid left wing activists having donated lots of money. Democratic causes and and campaigns. But that again is her attorney that's not her arm. So Friday night the deadline was set ten o'clock. Are you going to come next week or not? At the last minute. It was about nine forty Friday night. I know is during Hannity my TV show word came in that they wanted another day another twenty four hours. They remember that there had been the the attorney for professor I again, no she's willing to testify in public under oath. Glad to do it. And then it became an issue. Okay. When are we going to do it? And then it became an issue. Well, we can't people that disagree with the accusations. In other words, talking to my client, and then it became but just a series of this back and forth. I don't even think they finally agreed now completely to Thursday. So who knows what's going to happen by Thursday? So that happened Friday by all accounts. It's been set. They when you look at all of the witnesses. Now, we're talking about professor Ford's case here to support the allegation that she was sexually assaulted by Brett Cavanaugh, this is going back to our high school days. Although she didn't remember the location. She didn't remember the year. And all the details that we went through last week. And the fact that Dianne Feinstein held onto this letter she knew back in July that professor Ford made this allegation because she had a letter from professor Ford only today did she share that letter with Charles Grassley and her Republican colleagues on the Senate Judiciary committee all the time. She met alone with judge Cavanaugh. She never once brought the issue up with him. All the times, they they had these public hearings not one time. And they all knew it that any democrat bring up the issue of professor forward, which raises a lot of questions about how they have politicize this from the get-go. Now in the interim, we know this that all of the witnesses that have been cited by Christine Ford to support her allegation that when they were in high school together don't exactly know the year. They think it's about nineteen eighty two and she had made this claim that she was in a bathing suit and had other clothes on top of. She was she felt she was assaulted by then I guess a junior at the time judge Cavanaugh. But since that time, the Senate Judiciary committee who I think has been handling this. They've they've done the right thing anybody that has rushed to judgment here is playing politics. Now, you can believe an allegation if you want to. That's up to every bets. Everybody's prerogative here. I had too many experiences in my life. Where I have not rush to judgement and have been proven right when the media and many others are wrong. One high profile case was the Duke lacrosse case. I actually did my reporting my investigative work by going to meet with the families of the accused at the time. In the case of Trayvon Martin. And George Zimmerman everybody thought that case was a slam dunk, the President Wade in politically as well he rushed to judgment in that case President Obama at the time. And then we have the case, and I actually did investigative work. Then I went and interviewed George Zimmerman and another high profile case was Ferguson, Missouri. Now, they're high profile case was Freddie, gray in Baltimore and everybody rushes to judgement after I'd done my due diligence. I said none of these cops are going to ever be convicted in the case of, Freddie. Great never everybody thought that officer Darren Wilson was going to be indicted and convicted it was the eye witnesses in the neighborhood one after another that backed up the story of officer Darren Wilson, although his career ended as a result of it. So there's always a rush to judgment that I refuse to get involved. It. I learned this deeply when I lived in Atlanta. It was nineteen Ninety-six the Olympic park bombing. And everybody thought the Atlanta Journal constitution comes out with he fits the profile of alone. Bomber there proof. He lives with his mother. And I didn't know what. At the time. Richard Jewell was listening to me on the air that day. And I was probably the only one in the media there at the time that said that doesn't mean he's a killer. Doesn't mean he's a bomber ended up telling me long after that ended and gave me an interview then on Hannity and Colmes one of his first that he appreciated one person stood up for him and just gave the presumption of innocence as the media went wild. Same thing's happening here. When people say, I believe it they've made up their minds and by making up their minds. They're not believing in due process. They had not believing in a fundamental core of our Justice system, which is the presumption of innocence. Now, we know the Senate Judiciary committee, which rightly is Ben accommodating to every request professor Ford and her attorney is made although they're not going to allow judge cavenaugh to go first and professor for second because he has the right to respond to her allegations. Anyway, every witness and I'll get to this. When we get back cited by professor Ford herself to support her allegation that she was assaulted by Brett Kavanagh has now given their accounts to the Senate Judiciary committee all four contradict professor Ford's version of events. Now, we're going to get into this. This new allegation that is being made. I've read this piece and highlighted this piece by Jane Mayer, and Ronan Farrow, and I gotta tell you something. There's a lot of problems with this new allegation. A lot judge Cavanaugh has now responded, I will not be intimidated and everybody should have this fundamental belief. There are so many that don't but only at convenient times because when Keith Ellison the number two guy at the DNC is accused by his girlfriend of physical and emotional abuse on a fairly regular basis. Interesting that none of these people that are rushing to judgment on. Judge Cavanaugh have had a war not a peep about Keith Ellison and many of them were big lovers of all things Clinton. So the outrage you're hearing and seeing is so often has a selective moral outrage with a political taint to it all because if they cared about the issue, they'd be consistent. Hey, I want to remind you we've heard about all the lies for those of us that believe in the second amendment that a responsible gun owners. Frankly, I get sick of it. Because the truth is usually not told we have true stories of responsibly armed Americans that defend themselves and their families and save lives. And because of that God forbid if you ever forced to use a gun in self defense, you know, at times it's impossible to know if you're going to be held as a hero or a criminal. Even if it's in your own house, home invasion now, our friends at the USCCA, they have their free critical self-defense revival guide, and you're gonna learn what to do when the smoke clears if ever God forbid, you're in a bad situation and somebody breaks into your home, and you have to defend yourself. They know exactly what you should do and say and not say and the difference could be mean between freedom and our jail.

"You have the right to remain silent. And you might want to use it. This is the Sean Hannity show so much to get to today. We haven't even touched the rod Rosenstein drama that has been unfolding they will get to that. We have judge Kavanagh's letter will get to that. I will not be intimidated. I also ask that. Well, I'll tell you about Dianne Feinstein in a minute. We'll get to that. Let me let me again, go back to Friday. We need to set this up properly. So the Senate Judiciary committee is big getting all these changing request. I'm not showing up showing up. I'm gonna show up only under these conditions, these conditions, etc. And they have tried to be extraordinarily accommodating, and I think for the right reasons considering the severity of professor Ford's allegation. Now, she set to testify on Thursday. Okay. Now that's step one. Now in the interim, the inspite of Dianne Feinstein never handing over the July letter from professor Ford until today never came out till today all these opportunities public hearings private meetings. The Democrats have all been in on this. They've all known about this letter, and they hit it from the Republicans, and even since it has become public. They would not hand over the letter until earlier today. Now, all of the witnesses cited by professor Ford to support her allegation that she was sexually assaulted by Brett Cavanaugh now given their accounts they have been working to the Senate Judiciary committee all four contradict professor Ford's version of events. And so in an update that was released yesterday. The Senate Judiciary committee said it was investigating. Dr Ford's allegations against judge cavenaugh for the last week. And it is now learned the identities of the four individuals that Dr Ford claim we're at the party where the alleged abuse took place for individuals that professor Ford claimed attending the party were judged Cavanaugh, Mark judge. He's the one that came out first and also had problems at the time and had said, I guess in a book or something you'd written that he had blacked out a lot at that time when he was heavily abusing alcohol. Patrick Smyth and woman by the name of mislead land Ingram. Kaiser now, the committee reached out to each person for an opportunity to conduct a confidential interview. All four of the Mr. judge, Mr Smith miss all deny having knowledge of any party matching Dr Ford's description, which obviously would bolster Mr. Kavanagh's denials. Now, the Senate has to make a decision here. One of their one of the things they're going to have to factor in and I'll get to the second woman that broke late last night is the entirety of this man's life. They're going to have to anybody. That is fair minded will be willing to give this man due process. The presumption of innocence. And as as much as the Democrats. It's ironic Dianne Feinstein is now demanding Grassley postponed, the hearings Dianne Feinstein set the time line to this by not releasing the information and not bringing it up until the last minute. She set the time line here, they you know, and then you've got avenue on just it's sort of like a sideshow to me. I know I have evidence I have people and he tries to now insert himself into everything. But we even have the woman that came forward to New York magazine on Sunday with a claim that Brad Kavanagh exposed himself to hard during a drunken party at Yale telling Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer of the New Yorker that she was no longer. Sure. That are allegation is true. This is just break as a national review online. Jane Mayer said today, the Deborah Ramirez who accused Brad Kavanagh of sexually harassing. Her told the her New Yorker colleague, Ronan Farrow that she couldn't be sure of the supreme court nominees. Guilt. Confronted with a New York Times report indicating they'd spent all week last week. Apparently, researching this expressing doubts about Kavanagh's guilt in this particular, the second allegation mayor said Ramirez shared those doubts before they published. Their bombshell report on Sunday. To ronin. She said she wasn't absolutely certain she needed to make certain before she was going to say anything publicly she remembered the specifics, the graphics specifics and tried to remember for sure who that man was who was in her face. There were no I witness accounts in this story several of Kavanagh's friends and roommates from his time at Yale. Some of them were said to a bed in the room released statements denying that ever took place. I mean, the New York Times interviewed several dozen people for the entire week last week. In an attempt to and this is in the time story, this is from them trying to corroborate miss Ramirez story, and they could find no one with firsthand knowledge. No-one miss Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking them if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Cavanaugh was the one who exposed himself. Well, I mean, why are we now at this point? I've read the New Yorker piece carefully numerous times, and the New Yorker has not confirm with any other eye-witnesses that Cavanaugh was even present at the party from their own words. Her memories contain quote, gaps because she had been drinking heavily and was a neabry aided at the time of the alleged incident. It wasn't until she had been well gone through the issue. Let me put it that way for six days that Ramirez said she felt confident enough of her recollections to say she remembers Cavanaugh had exposed himself added drunken dormitory party. I mean six days. Now, she acknowledges she quickly became quote. Her words, she quickly became inebriated at the party shared knowledge. Quote, she was on the floor. Foggy slurring her words Ramirez acknowledged there were significant gaps in her memories of the evening. The alleged. I witnesses all deny it. The first one said one of the male classmates who Ramirez said egged on cavenaugh denied any memory of the party. I don't think Brett would flash himself to Debbie or anyone else for that matter? The second said the other male classmate Ramiro said was involved in the incident said I have zero recollection of this her college best friend even denied it by saying this is a woman I was best friends with we shared intimate. Details of our lives, and I was never told this story by her or by anyone else. It never came up. I didn't see it. I never heard of it happening. And by the way, other contemporaries deny it is well at a statement, two of those male students who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, you know, the wife of the third male students said she said was involved. Three other classmates. They give the names disputed Ramirez his account of events, quote, we were the people closest to Brett Cavanaugh during his first year. He was a roommate to some of us. We spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at yeah, we can say with confidence that if this incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it. And we did not the behavior. She describes would be completely out of character for Brett Cavanaugh. An addition some of us knew Debbie long after Yale. She never described this incident until Brett supreme court nomination. Was pending editors from the New Yorker contacted some of us because we are the people who would know the truth, and we told them we never saw or heard about this. Now cavenaugh also personally has denied it this alleged event from thirty five years ago did not happen. The people who knew me, then know that this did not happen. And if said, so this is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth and defending my good name, and my reputation and character and integrity that I have spent a lifetime building against these last minute allegations. Now, we we have to look at these words that are actually in everything I'm reading here was in the New Yorker piece everything now the question is I mean, I can't believe I'm even say, I mean, the New York Times the people that printed the anonymous piece on Trump they interviewed several dozen people. They couldn't find a single person to corroborate the story of MS Ramirez, then her own gaps in memory, and I was a neabry aided early on and so on and so forth. But by the way. Everybody in college drinks too much. Let's be honest here. Most people do I'm not holding this in any way against Mr. Ramirez. She to deserves to have her story heard. But at some point there's got to be some evidence corroboration and more than what the New Yorker holds his standards here. Now, I know that they've done some decent work, Ronan Farrow with the Weinstein ks Weinstein case and have.

"At large an ISA Asaba. George more to talk about of course, with the potential hearing on Thursday with Brad Kavanagh and professor Ford. And now we add a third name who is accusing. Brad Kavanagh the sexual misconduct back in the early to mid eighties while being a classmate at Yale University, Deborah Ramirez in this story comes from Ronan Farrow and others in the New Yorker. So we'll see how this transpires throughout the entire week. Let's I hear from Ronan Farrow on the new cavenaugh sexual assault accuser. That's Deborah Ramirez. Again, a former Yale classmate of cabin is back in the eighties. Here's Ronan Farrow is that really didn't jump out at me. When I read the article says it after six at first, I wasn't sure this was cavenaugh when you first came to her last week. And then you're right after six days of carefully assessing her memories consulting with their tanks. She did become confident that it was him. I would say that. That's extremely typical of these stories when you're dealing with trauma, alcohol many years in between I think that the more cautious witnesses that I've dealt with in cases. Like this very frequently say, I want to take time to decide I wanna talk to other people involved. I want to search myself and make sure that I can affirmatively stand by these claims in the face of what she knew would be a crucible of partisan pushback what she's receiving now. Why did she come forward? She came forward because Senate Democrats began looking at this claim she did not flag this for those Democrats came to her detention of people on the hill independently and it's really cornered her into an awkward position. That's why she took to think about this carefully. No. She said point blank. I don't wanna ruin anyone's life. But she feels this is a serious claim she considers her own memories credible. And she felt it was important that she tells her story before others did without her consent. Because so many people on the hill were looking you pointed out the witnesses the students at the time who back up I join back up their claims. At the time several others in the article say that they never heard anything like this at all even someone who profess to be her best friend at the time at any moment is you're writing the story this close to the nomination. Did you sort of want to push the pause button say are we sure this is the right thing to do. Georgia. I just want to stress very clearly we take reporting of this dreamily seriously, the evidentiary basis for this. Number of witnesses were told at the time. Is it in excess of what we typically see in this kind of investigative reporting the deal with sexual assault assault. That claims is very often that there are multiple people willing to say, they witnessed it in the room, and the individuals who were most primary to this are people she alleged were egging Brett cavenaugh, and those are the ones who signed that statement that you talked about know Republicans are saying this is another democratic hit.

He should not be confused. Wait, wait a minute. There hasn't even been any testimony. What about the corroborating witnesses that gillibrand says exists and what about that? How does gillibrand? No, the corroborating witnesses have you? And I heard about corroborating witnesses. I've scanned all the recent media. I'm not aware of corroborating witnesses. Are you had a gillibrand other? Corroborating witnesses. So cavenaugh should have been stopped before the accuser was known Cavanaugh should be stopped now before this testimony and Cavanaugh should be stopped. If there is testimony get the point what's the point of this? Just go out and hang up. Go out and hang them. That's it. That's the beginning. In the end of it. I'll be right back. Mark levin. Mm-hmm.

"You're just now getting in the car will welcome amount Sanders on filling in for Eric Erickson, I'll be here tonight and tomorrow filling in for that conservative Viking doing what I can to keep it rolling. Keep you informed, especially if you've been inside all day, and you've been missing out on all the news. You just heard Chris Chandler say that the two sides are are talking. Well, at least the lawyer for for the for the Senate and the lawyer for Sumi for professor Ford and members of the Senate, maybe lawyers for the Senate I wanted to get into a couple of different things. And I don't forget I also talked about the scrubbing of the yearbook because that actually did take place a couple of days ago. The yearbook for the school where Christine Ford professor Christine Ford went to school. It got a good scrub down. And there is a lot that we need to talk about. If you've ever seen the movie sixteen candles, those kind of parties that happened all the time in the eighties. Go see the parties that are in things like fast times at ridgemont high or any movie that goes back to the eighties. That's what happened, and we gotta keep some of that cultural context in my it's different than today before I get too much further. I the privilege of being the host of a quick shout out to my bro-. Phil, Phillip he is he just had a birthday today. So happy birthday, buddy. I'm glad you're out there listening, and I appreciate what you do and we appreciated the Home Depot where he works. They were able to help us out with our convoy of care. And so thanks a lot before I get into the yearbook. I wanna get into two things. The first one is newer news that came out this afternoon. Just before we went. Live that Brett Kavanagh's accuser. Christine blase Ford is actually getting advice from Democrats super activist Ricki Seidman now, you may not remember that name, but Seidman currently an executive at a public relations company. She worked for the for both before the Dukakis, the Mondale and the Clinton campaigns all of them running for president. She also served as Joe Biden's communications director when he was named Barack Obama's running mate in two thousand eight and manage the confirmation of Obama's supreme court Justice nominee, Sonia Sotomayor. Roar and recently Seidman served as the executive director of the liberal voter turnout group rock the vote. Simon served in Bill Clinton's campaign war room served as a deputy communications director in the Clinton White House. But more importantly, she's no stranger to high-profile fights over nominations to the supreme court by a Republican president. She cut her teeth running attack ads against Robert Bork a nomination that was eventually derailed. She then moved to democratic Senator Ted Kennedy's office where she was instrumental in convincing Anita hill to go public with her claim that Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her and the weekly standard who said that Simon also instrumental in leaking the hill story to the press, according to the real Anita hill, and now she is being confirmed or behind the scenes as being giving the quiet advice to Christine blase Ford. And what to say how to say what to do how to move the kind of actions. You should take. Help derail this nominee. So you've got a high flying person who was who helped give us the term booked when they went after Robert Bork. They tried to do the same thing to Clarence Thomas. Who basically said I am the victim of what is a quivalent of a high tech lynching at the hands of the Democrats, and the most distinguished black judges we've ever had made his way to the supreme court. Thankfully was able to dodge that and now she's behind the scenes again. I don't blame professor Ford. I said when I first started. I don't doubt that something happened. What what I have problems with is. Nobody was specifically there that has any recollection with any credibility. There's no evidence, no pictures, no recordings. No video no one who wants to testify everyone that put something on social media is now purging it deleting it cleaning it or seeing records. Being Pershing social media being scrubbed. There's a lot more going on here. And I've got another revelation to bring to you. But first, let's get a revelation of what's.

"Com for more details, and by golly that's tomorrow. As I mentioned to LS at the end of the mid day program. We will be talking extensively obviously enough about judge Cavanaugh and his accuser. Christine Ford Blasi Ford, rather this from CNN relatively new news. As I understand it. Christine Blasi Ford open the possibility that she would testify before congress about her accusation of sexual assault against supreme court nominee. Brett Cavanaugh an Email her lawyer sent to the Senate Judiciary committee said Ford, quote would be prepared to testify next week. If the senators offer her quote terms that are fair and which ensure her safety the message came a day ahead of the ten AM Friday deadline set by Senate Judiciary chairman Chuck Grassley for four to decide whether she would appear before a hearing he set for Monday. So do you know? Probably no, you certainly might know the attorney for professor Ford. Said look we need an FBI investigation. The president has said, well, I'm not going to ask for it. And they're not gonna do it. Unless I ask for it. Chuck Grassley, the Senate Judiciary committee, chairman Republican of Ohio has been saying, you know, what Mondays day she shows up Monday or no deal, and we can have both of the nominee and the accuser testify on Monday. And so as I just mentioned, according to CNN. Testifying Monday is not possible says the lawyer for Blasi Ford, and the committee's insistence that occur then is arbitrary in any event. So that'll be interesting because at first as I understand, it Blasi Ford and her attorney were essentially saying, look, we need a couple of weeks at least or at least several days for the FBI to investigate chairman Grassley countered. You know, what we don't need anybody to investigate? We're good with just us. Peppering you guys with questions and it's Monday as your day Mondays your window Blasi Ford returning retaliating now, or at least responding. And saying look I'll I'll compromise with y'all go next week. But not as soon as Monday, and I do not know whether chairman Grassley or anybody in the Senate Judiciary committee has yet to respond to this offer. To testify sometime next week not by the original Monday deadline, but Monday wasn't the only deadline. The deadline of being notified that she would be willing to testify on Monday was Friday at ten AM. So apparently, they're not going to meet that deadline because they they are willing to testify next week. They being Blasi Ford the accuser. With her attorney present, but they are willing to do it sometime next week. So I don't know when this is going to sort itself out, but we will get perspective as the afternoon goes on from Republican attorney attorney for many Republican matters over the years, including the presidential campaigns Heather Heidelberg who practices right here in Pittsburgh. Also, Mike Veon former house minority whip on the democratic side, and then some historical perspective from a guy who used to work for Arlen Specter who gotten quite a bit of hot water for his interrogation of Anita hill who accused now Justice Clarence Thomas back in the day of being guilty of sexual harassment. Though, my recollection is nothing quite as serious as what judge Cavanaugh is accused of. But then again that may be in the eye of the holder. We will also talk to Donald Dr Donald Burke of the university of Pittsburgh about a new study, which says as bad as the opioid epidemic epidemic is even if we somehow get that monster under control, it could be that g yet another drug will pop up in its place because that seems to be the historical pattern, and so and not a particularly optimistic outlook for the future. In terms of getting our problems involving mental health and addiction and similar maladies under control. And on a much lighter note, Rick Seebeck, much beloved WKBD documentarian will talk to us about national cardigan day wear your cardigan day in honor of Fred Rogers, one of the most wonderful human beings ever to set foot on the earth.

"Too bad that no one called her for called her lawyer. I'm understanding is she got emails, and this is a woman who's been profoundly impacted by this. Now, I can't say everything's truthful. I don't know. I do know that. Got to contact her lawyers. I can't say everything's truthful. I don't know, by the way, the honest, real comment the minute after she made it she was getting pounded by the base of a party. Then she tried to go out and clarify that remark which says a lot about the base of the party. I went through a whole monologue on TV last night earlier tonight talking about the presumption of innocence is key to a fair legal system in this country. Everyone say well, the FBI needs to investigate. Well, the FBI rightly pointed out the allegation does not involve any potential federal crime. This would not be their jurisdiction in terms of any crime whatsoever. The statute of limitations have long since past decades ago. It was funny to watch Hillary last night doesn't an interview on fake does conspiracy. TV hate Trump TV MSNBC. And you know, she claims that that this woman. Professor Ford deserves the benefit of the doubt. Okay. Well, what about you know, her husband? Juanita broaddrick has waited calls a dick Durbin of fraud for pushing. This particular assault allegation. And also saying, where's my FBI investigation, and I interviewed Juanita Broderick. And she was compelling and believable to me about an assault of rape. Bill Clinton took the time to interview are take the time to interview professor port. If she would want to sit down for an interview and her attorney, so we don't know if this woman now is going to testify all we know, this is a last minute thing. Now, the Senate Judiciary committee has done a lot to try to accommodate professor Ford. Even though she said, she would testify publicly under oath, and a lawyer said that many times, well, they said, well, you can do it privately if you like to make sure it would be more comfortable for you. Then the Senate Judiciary went an extra mile again today. We'll we'll send a group of people to go. See you this. You don't have to. We can do a privately we still don't have any answers on any of that. I see that a lot of Democrats are getting angry at Dianne Feinstein, quote Washington Post as she plots the next steps Feinstein is dealing with questions about her decision to wait weeks before sharing Fords. Letter only issuing a brick cryptic statement last Thursday, then word surfaced of its existence came almost a week after cabinet confirmation hearings wrapped up she met with cavenaugh privately. She didn't bring it up. But she knew about it. She she also got to like every other democrat colleague, and that circus that we witnessed she had an opportunity to ask him publicly. She didn't do it. I will tell you. I'm glad we're going to have a hearing to get to the bottom of it. It'd be nice to have it done before said, Jon tester, a fellow democrat. But you know, I wasn't in her shoes the comment, but Macy her own men need to shut up cavenaugh accuser needs to be believed. I believe her..

"It's eight hundred nine four one, Sean if you wanna be a part of the program so much news is breaking today. Obviously will she or will she not testify before the Senate Judiciary committee? The committee is trying to be accommodating to professor Ford. They have offered even though her attorney said she would do so publicly under oath. They've offered to allow her to do a privately mon- Monday. They've also offered just in the last hour and a half that they would send people to her to interview her to get to the truth in the veracity of this last minute allegation that the Democrats do of back in July here to weigh in on this and much more is former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich's with us. How are you, sir? I'm doing great. And I have to start. We can come back to that in a minute. But I wanna start with three pieces of election news that I think are just so different from the liberal media is for sure with our audience on the first is the yesterday in Texas Pete floors Republican candidate in a special election for the state Senate defeated Pete coleco. Now, this is a district which is sixty six percent, Hispanic. If you combine Hispanic and black votes is seventy three percent. It is an eleven percent Hillary Clinton district for thirty nine years. The Democrats held it. Thanks to sort of governor and the Republican party in Texas in a great candidate Pete fours. We wanted yesterday. And so for those who tell us that there's a Blue Wave tone. Tell me how we pick up a seat with not having one hundred and twenty nine years with the Blue Wave is coming second in Florida. And I love this one Donna Shalala for years. She's remarkably competent interesting liberal was a great chancellor of university, Wisconsin and is running for the house seat to try to fill Republican congressman. Rustling seton? While she's now losing. According to the most recent survey Maria Sola czar who was a local TV personality is the head by seven percent in the district. Hillary Clinton carried by twenty. Finally, I by the way that particular race against Donna Shalala. I I heard that the Republican candidate is a rockstar would be an instant star in the Republican party. First of all big star nationally, right? She is a television personality. She has for years in delivering the news in Miami. Is you know, my daughter Kathy lives escape and as watching this race and Maria VERA Salazar and is just going to be a big winner. And this is a seat if they can't a twenty percent Clinton seat. They have a huge problem finally in California. Now, we're we're talking about the three biggest states in the country, California, Texas and Florida in California young Kim now lease Joseph snares by fifty one to forty one in district. Hilary carried by percents, by the way. She's a great candidate to replace it. Yeah, she's an amazing candidate candidate. A great tribute to the Republican state leadership council, which has been growing. State legislative candidates everywhere in the country. And she's a great example of one of the people they help win elections. And she's now going to be I think the next congresswoman. Let me ask you. I I have some I have some news to in Texas has been a lot of talk about the democratic challenger to Senator Ted Cruz. But there's a poll out today that has cruise up by nine. I would think that the people of Texas have got to be smart and keep Ted Cruz and congress we need him there. He's been an amazing ally of the president. I know they had a pretty hostile campaign against each other. But they have put all those differences aside, and he's been frankly, one of the strongest constitutional voices, we have there is also a new poll out that actually shows it's only a four point race in the generic ballot polling, according to YouTube dot gov poll that came out today, which I think is particularly interesting to me because you're right about the Blue Wave now with that said, Mr Speaker, I I agree with you. I think that this election needs to be nationalized behind five or six big ideas. And that is that they will make the tax cuts permanent that they will fully fund the wall. If they're elected that they will help help the president the case of the Senate continue to pick originalists justices to the court. I think that there are other security issues that could be put forward to maybe energy independence is another one. What would your five big items be? Well, look, look, I think he's a personal great work on this. And you're the right general direction unlimited just put onto our whole everyone listening to us. You want to know and makes the case to your, friends and neighbors. You have a party Donald Trump. Trying to appoint constitutional conservatives the supreme court, and you seven Brad cavenaugh somebody who fits that. Now by contrast. You have. Democratic party. So desperate. So crazed. Last minute. They come up with an allegation that is thirty five years old. And now you have the Republicans doing exactly the right thing when President Trump I hope you'll stay this discipline. He has been perfect saying what the accuser deserves her day in court. She deserves her time to explain her case with all over her the respect for doing. And as a result Senator Grassley said, look, we're gonna postpone the vote in the committee. We'll have a special hearing on Monday. Second. Yes. This person is not willing to show up not willing to testify not willing to explain I think the average Americans going to say, this is really obvious. And the result will be the bread cabin next week at some point. We'll be confirmed for the supreme court. You know, Mr Speaker, there's a lot in play. And there's a lot at stake in all of this. And there are certain things that I know about the Democratic Party now thirty years almost thirty years in radio Twenty-three, plus a FOX whatever it is since nineteen Ninety-six and every election, and I back it up with tape and evidence Republicans are racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, Zima phobic Islamaphobia. They want dirty air and water. They want children to die and they wanna kill grandma and throw over the cliff when it comes to supreme court nominations. Now. I do agree with you. I do believe that professor port should be heard. It's a serious allegation. He's been given every opportunity her lawyer said she would testify under oath publicly. Now, they they aren't they they've raised the bar. We need an FBI investigation. The FBI said this is not something within their purview to investigate. It's also thirty six years ago. Now, they want the Maryland attorney general about here. But it seems when you look at Ted. Kennedy in the treatment of Robert Bork. And you look at the treatment of one of the greatest justices in our time, Clarence Thomas and the last minute they had this since July. I think people also have a right to be skeptical of the Democrats, and they're all, you know, all these people that come out and say that they believe her I believe her I believe first of all Shelly told the story in the Washington Post. She doesn't remember even the year where this all had occurred. The one witness says it didn't happen. Although he has I guess had drinking problems at the time. But okay, the judge denies it. Whatever happened to the presumption of innocence in this country. It's a little scary to me. Well, the parents fascinating to watch is I forty eight or seventy two hours. Your story was a liberal Democrat dream and everything was stopped on the articles. I was reading they're talking about how the crisis in the cabinet. Sooner. Then after about seventy two hours it began to be obvious. It's the story was not be reinforced. You weren't getting people to come out as witnesses for her. You weren't getting corroboration. You weren't getting. Excuse me. I know I'll fill in the play, by the way news has has a bad throat today. Let me just help you. I I've been there myself like, oh, I need a cough. The only difference is I have a cough button. And you don't. So what I like? That's okay. My hope you're technicians can cover up most. That the average person at first legitimately. Here's the accuser the benefit of the doubt case courage to come out and say this, right? Takes courage to feel like you have to testify and so people want to make sure and I think President Trump has been exactly right in his tone. I agree. Change down was make sure we get to the truth. What's give her the opportunity? But what's happened is as people rolled out the red carpet and said, hey, you can come in and testify in public using coming in testify privates. We'll do everything we can do comedy. Right. I'm sorry about your cough. I know this is art. I'm sorry. It's all of a sudden now all of a sudden people have said, wait a second. Just doesn't sound right. And that's why I've been the last forty eight hours. I think you saw the tide turned pretty dramatically and people even Republican senators who have been skeptical. Now swinging back and say look. She has to testify Monday or I'm a yes. Because I'm not just kinda have Senator Feinstein manipulate the system at the last minute in order to block everything. And I think if anything it's now starting to really weaken, the Democrats and put the Trump state Democrats in the Senate in a real box. I mean, do they stick with the left and a story that has no support nobility? Again. We have to wait and see until Monday. But I think the burden now has shifted from Cavanaugh was accused or take a break. We'll come back more with speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich. And we do hope you feel better. I know you've had a call for the last number of days. We'll ask you about Democrats now saying wanting to precipitate a constitutional crisis, whereas the president has asked for declassification and unredacted information and they're saying, oh, don't listen to the president. In other words, defy the constitution. And what is the obvious? Authority of the president of the United States more with Newt Gingrich on the other side. Greg and Sara gonna join us James O'Keefe joins us today. Part too. Yeah. There are there is a resistance movement at all levels of government. Hey, if you don't sleep. Well, like me, I've got the antidote. That's neither drug or alcohol induced, it's my pillow..
"professor ford" Discussed on WJR 760
"Going to go. He has said he will pull the plug on it. If both sides don't testify the accuser must testify as well as yet. Her attorney has yet to return any of the queries from the judiciary committee's office. Meantime, as we know there are a lot of defenders on both sides coming forward women that went to school with a professor Ford that say that they believe her they know her to be an honest person. And of course, we've got those sixty five women that signed a letter that these are women that socialized with Brett Cavanaugh when he was a young man a women that went to surrounding schools, a number of surrounding schools who were at parties with them and never saw any behavior that they thought was untoward toward women or anybody else and one of them Meghan McCain was on FOX last night. She is one that has signed that letter for it was a friend of ours in highschool and to this day, he was always respectful always decent never out of control in any way and always always treated women with respect. And and yet we need to hear from all that that know him democrat. That's it had said, well, we we need many more witnesses. We got to have more witnesses Nita hill had twenty two witnesses. What really why is there a quota unless you're tactic is to merely delay that serves no one what you do need as facts are facts and the FBI according to the president is reluctant to investigate. Well, they've done six background checks. They now have new information that they didn't have before a finish up the background. Check. See if there are any corroborating witnesses that were at that party. Or even if there was a party, and that means having someone with experience interviewing alleged victims talk to professor Ford, and to talk to anybody that she believes might have been there. And as we know there are a number holes in her story. Not surprising. I've got holes in my memory from last week much less nineteen eighty-two if that indeed was the year, and even that is got a question Mark over. Let's go to Monroe and talk to Mike about this. And what this hearing may portend, sir. Hello, Mike, you're on WJR. Guy about he said, you know, guys are treated differently than women when it comes to things like this. And it's true. Now, my my point is is bottom line is we voted these officials in to do a job. Okay. And if they can't do their job, and they're more worried about creating drama and things of that nature. They need to be taken out of office. And they're not being, you know, they're not holding up to the to the high standard that we elected them to do. I agree Mike, and the put it the problem is they were elected to do a job, and they may have multiple skills, but examining questioning cross examining an alleged sex assault or someone that believes that there was an attempted rape on their person. Some that says they were traumatized by it. That's a specialized skill, and I think it it doesn't serve Brett Cavanaugh. It doesn't surf professor Ford. Well, if a bunch of amateurs are doing the questioning in this kind of a scenario, you know, that they were going to be people that are posturing and pontificating in turning this into a circus sideshow. There will be others that are reluctant to press her on details because they don't want their female voters to have backlash the next time. They're up for. Election, and that's not going to serve Brett cabinet. Well, it's fair to neither actually which is. Why says Susan Collins made what I think is a reasonable suggestion today. She make sure that both have counsel council that can cross examine them. And that has to be a condition of any party tries to change that that they can't be cross examined. Then don't do the hearing. Let's go to Randi and Troy Hello. Randy. How are you? I'm good, sir. Always an interesting day. In washington. Okay. So I think this is a blast that once once they set at Calder blouse and said, okay, how many and tell your story under oath? She said, well, wait a minute. I'm rather have the FBI do all this and start interviewing other people? This is not about me. It should be about all the other witnesses. But they're making it about her. So once they say to her you gotta come in and testify under oath MB subject to prosecution falsely testifying which would be a felony. Then all of a sudden she's getting second thought. So I think that's what's going on. If this would've been a principal decision. It would have been made thirty five years ago. This is clearly a political decision. That's intended to derail the nomination, and that's why she's not going to testify. Yeah. I'm not going to condemn her for sitting on this. There are a lot of reasons that the women who have felt victimized don't come forward that young people that were victimized don't come forward. And there's plenty of there's plenty of academic research showing that that's part of the that's part of the trauma. I'm not going to condemn her for that. But if you're going to make you're going to send a letter to the Washington Post's a tip line. If you're going to send a letter to a Senator. That you know will be in the midst of this confirmation hearing, and then you seem to think that you're going to be afforded confidentiality in Washington that leaks worse than anything. You can imagine. You've got to have more sense than that. And and listen if she feels like she was victimized. I have empathy for we need to have empathy for the people that are victimized this way. But she also has to talk to the FBI and have professionals questioner and get to the bottom of the facts in this case, that's the only way that either party is served. Let's go up to Ray township, and Jeff Jeff. Wow. What a somebody like Cavanaugh in all these proceedings turned around and slapped her harassment suit or a defamation character something like that on these people AB changed the way things are going little bit. Yeah. But again, that's the kind of thing that's going to its first of all politically. It'd be suicide because you look like you're harassing a victim. And in the metoo a moment that we're in. And I wouldn't that certainly wouldn't be anything that I would support. You don't need the victim. Shame here. And you don't need to harass someone believes that they have a legitimate complaint. And if you think that if it comes out through a background check or through other means that this was part of a hidden agenda, then fine, then you can go after her but for filing a false complaint. But I don't wanna Lynch the the the alleged victim before we've even had a some some significant professional factfinding. We'll be back with more of your calls. You're on news talk seven sixty WJR. I don't understand it. And it frustrates me. Why are people still taking? Drugs, getting injections.

"Top of the hour. Eight hundred nine four one Sean toll-free telephone number. We have a lot I'm going to peel back this onion, George popadopoulos joins us later in the program today. Also, we are going to be joined by a panel. Greg Jarrett, Keri, Severino and David shown on how do you handle these allegations one thing I did forget to bring up there's a lot of things floating out there that I have not been able to confirm. I have for example, everyone said to me well, look at what the reviews of this teacher are on the professor in this particular case this woman that's making the accusation. And I'm like slow down. It turns out there's another professor Ford that you that that is out there and some people will put that up. We've been hearing all day that there's there's been a social media site. Scrub of professor Ford, and I don't have any evidence of that either. If that happened that would be interesting. Why would they try to do that? What would they not want people to see? But usually it's very hard to scrub any social media postings because there's usually some track record someplace somewhere of it that people can have. There was the report that Kavanagh's mom presided over a ninety six foreclosure case involving the parents of professor Ford that seems to be true from everything that we've been able to gather haven't confirmed it one hundred percent though. Anyway, we're going to get into that. We also have newly released testimony from Lisa page undermining Robert Muller's legitimacy which we're gonna hit pretty hard today. And you'll meet one of the sixty five signers of the letter in support of judge cavenaugh. But if they have professor Ford and her lawyer who is pretty radically left. Professor Ford's lawyer didn't believe Paula Jones was outspoken about. Dramatically. Kinda says. Okay. Well, if you believe in one case, you don't believe another case shows that might be a political bias on the tourneys part, nor did she want. The what happened Al Franken a in which was pretty creepy on his part? Anyway, let's go to job is starting the fallout from hurricane Florence has been pretty severe as we predicted. Now, the flooding aspect of it has gotten really bad in some areas in North Carolina, and they're even expecting more flooding in the days to come. Why is that because the rivers obviously, a rising? Why is there that the lay though, I think most people want to know while the larger the river, the more all the tributaries have to pour into it. So it's not just the rain that has fallen inning around the areas in south east, North Carolina. But all the rain upstream and the difference between Matthew, and this is Matthew came along the coast and went out, and you know, that devastated southeast North Carolina and the coastal South Carolina. This one kept coming in. Lennon kept slamming heavy rains, well back to Charlotte and places like that. And all it takes a while for that water to come down screens, basically for North Carolina. This is the same kind of very very slow moving storm. And you know, it's a different proportions. Of course, when you look at the neighborhoods that are impacted badly by flooding, how many people do we think now are going to have big flood problems or having them at this point. Well, it's probably a half million to a million people that are affected some way directly where they've had some damage. I haven't done the exact count on that. Because it varies. You know, you get back up in those mountains, and there's other things that are going on up in there. Fortunately, and the real good news with Lawrence's is it there's no other system feeding into Florence to amplify precipitation. So she's in West Virginia now coming through Pennsylvania tonight through southern New England tomorrow, and chances are she's not going to cause the kind of disaster that Diane for instance, nineteen fifty five after hitting in a similar place in North Carolina fifteen to twenty inches of rain in southern New England. So there there is a bright spot in the end game. But what we have to understand is that this water has to come down river and into these areas Ma by the way, my fear is and we said this last week at the season would shut down the entire globe is void of tropical activity right now. Muddying about ten to fifteen days. We're going to have to watch your western Caribbean golf. It would not surprise me. If we're not done yet. They'll be one more spur and then we'll put the at the end to this hurricane season. I am concerned about that area of the country book for now you've gotta deal with what's going on here. And again, put it in perspective in nineteen fifty five that same area of North Carolina got hit by two hurricanes and five days, Connie and Diane. And so you can see North Carolina has been hit fifty six times in the last hundred years by hurricanes. So it is something that business there. But as far as rainfall goes and the disaster in these areas, this is their benchmarks storm around that Wilmington area up to Cape lookout back. All right. About fifty two hundred miles on job is starting our chief meteorologist here on the Sean Hannity show with weather bell dot com. You've done a great job as always. And I know you watch another storms, and I have no doubt will be having you on the days and weeks ahead. Unfortunately, Sean, I hope not because you've got a lot on your plate. I have a feeling they may be one more time. But I hope not. Hope I'm wrong about with a couple of weeks. But I hope the hurricane seasons put to bed now. Okay. All right, my friend. Thank you for your good work. You're saving people's lives are in our thoughts and prayers all.
