the attorney for brett kavanaugh accuser is calling for more witnesses in monday's hears. republicans say she has until friday morning to decide whether she will testify against the us supreme court nominee. should the fbi investigate the sexual assault allegation against kavanaugh. or is it not their job. we will ask a former high ranking member of the fbi. and big promises from kim jong
un. but they come with conditions on the united states. will that make the whole denuclearization deal a non-starter? welcome to our viewers from the yoits. and of course around the world. this is cnn "newsroom." there is mounting pressure among u.s. republican lawmakers to move ahead with the supreme court nomination of brett kavanaugh. they want to hear from the woman who accused him of sexual assault years ago but rejecting her call for an fbi investigation first. the push for a monday hearing. >> i really want to see her. i want to sew what she has to say. >> reporter: tonight the high stakes show down is intensifying. with battle lines drawn over
christine blasey fords potential testimony on capitol hill. >> if she doesn't show up. that would be unfortunate. >> the white house and republicans now in lock step saying they are ready and waiting for ford to testify on monday. sources tell cnn grassly is ufring to have his committee interview her in california in private or public hearing room on capitol hill. >> i'm focussed right now, is doing everything that we can to make dr. ford comfortable. with coming before our committee. either in open session or closed session. or a public or a private interview. that's four different ways she can choose to come. >> dismissing calls by ford for an fbi investigation to happen first before she testifies. >> i'm not worried about anything other than just focusing for the next few days on encouraging her to come.
>> grass ri responding today to this blunder sent to the committee. fords lawyer saying she wouldn't testify before the committee without an fbi investigation. of her allegations against kavanaugh first because it will ensure the crucial facts and witnesses in the matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner and the committee is fully informed before conducting a hearing or making a decision. >> the senators who want to treat this seriously, mean that. they'll have an investigation of the allegations. so we all go into this informed. >> some republicans are calling foul. senator graham saying that requiring an fbi investigation is not about finding truth but delaying the process until after the midterm election. there is some precedent in the past. >> when the fbi investigation took place i tried to answer their questions as directly as i recall. >> in 1991 during the clarence
thomas hearing the fbi called for an investigation and only delayed the hearing for three days. >> the hearing questions need to have a frame. and investigation is the best frame for that. a neutral investigation. that can pull together the facts. create a record. so that the senators can draw on the information they receive. to develop their question. >> meantime, two former classmates of kavanaugh are denying any knowledge of the party. the latest patrick jay smith. saying today, i have no knowledge of the party in question. nor do i have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she's levelled against kavanaugh. all this as republicans start to coaless the message if ford doesn't show up on monday it will be time to move ahead on a vote. >> i think it's not fair to judge kavanaugh. for her not to come forward and
testify. >> senator collins voice here carries significant weight. given the fact she's a moderate republican. a swing vote. add that to other significant ships we have seen this week on capitol hill from republicans. some republicans like corker, jeff flake. key voices saying that if she indeed doesn't show up at monday's hearing then they believe this should be pushed to a vote. >> meantime. jeff zeleny reports the president is defending his nominee. >> he's such an out standing man. hard for me to imagine anything happened. >> reporter: trump standing by brett kavanaugh tonight. but subtly questioning the woman accusing him of sexual assault. >> they're hurting somebody's life very badly. it's unfair to as you know kavb
has been treated tough. >> expressing confidence about his confirmation. referring to the federal judge as jus tus. >> justice kavanaugh. >> but the president saying today he's eager to hear from christine blasey ford. who accusings him of pinning her to a bed and groping her during a party three decades ago. >> if she shows up and makes a credible showing. that will be very kbresing and we'll have to make a decision. >> the president dismissing calls for the fbi to investigate. as democrats and ford have requested. >> it would seem the fbi doesn't do that. they have investigated -- they have investigated about six times before. it seems they don't do that. >> that's exactly what happened in 1991. when anita hill made sexual harassment allegations against clarence thomas. >> the white house ordered the
fbi to investigate and send findings to the judiciary committee. meanwhile today the president expressing more out rage at jeff sessions. >> i'm disappointed in the attorney general. >> the president was even more blunt during an interview saying i don't have an attorney general. it's very sad. >> it's the latest acquisition a disloyalty from the president. not serve as the president's personal lawyer. he wanted to be attorney general but he came strongly. he went through the nominating process and did poorly. he was mixed up in confused and people that worked with him for a long time in the is that the were not nice to him. that was a rough time. >> all this the president visited north and south carolina today. where at least 36 people have died in the wake of hurricane florence. >> to all those impacted by the terrible storm, our entire american family. is with you and ready to help.
and you will recover. >> reporter: the president toured a flood ravaged neighborhood in north carolina. handing out lunches. and hugs. the president also asked about something close to his heart. >> how is lake norman. that area? i love that area. i can't tell you why. i love it. >> reporter: the trump national golf club located on the the shores near charlotte. that largely escaped the storms wrath. after spending much of the day in the carolinas the president back at the white house now answering new questions about the latest in the battle. he made clear he would like to see a hearing go forward to see what the accuser has to say. he says he believes judge kavanaugh is treated unfairly in the process. preparing for a monday hearing. the question is if it will happen or not. jeff zeleny.
cnn the white house. >> steven joins us now. from brussels. the "new york times" chief diplomatic correspondent. good to see you. christine ford wants an fbi investigation into her allegations against kavanaugh. that won't happen. instepd the senate judiciary committee wants her to indicate by friday if she plans to testify on monday. the democrats want an investigation the republicans want a vote as soon as possible. what are the politics on both sides? >> it is very painful. because it's not just the republican, democrat olympics. it's part of the new sexual politics. it's part of the me too movement. we have an issue around a man who if he's confirmed, will be a supreme court justice for many, many years to come. his character does actually matter. now i'm not a senator.
i'm not on the senate judiciary committee. but it is up to them to decide whether this woman who's pain is clear, and i imagine is sincere. whether her allegations of something happened 30 years ago which have been denied are enough to stop this particular man. brett kavanaugh from becoming a supreme court justice. and of course in terms of democrat and republican politics, the democrats want to get to the midterm election. they think im going to do very well. and republicans want this done right away. you have that going on too. it's a very confusing picture and a painful one. i think for almost everyone concerned. >> yeah, it looks like politics at war with the law. of course the senate judiciary committee is a political body. it's not impartial. wouldn't an fbi investigation
benefit ford and kavanaugh? by revealing what really happened at the high school party back in 1982. getting to the truth. for the benefit of the country as well. >> well, here we are back to jeff sessions. who is the attorney general. but you know, it's 32 years ago. he denies it. she says it happened. other people deny it. i doubt there's much evidence. what you'll have is people talking. you'll have people trying to remember what happened that night. maybe they were not even in the room. was there a party. i'm sure this is the problem, whether the fbi investigates or the police investigate. @wasn't investigated 32 years ago. when memories and evidence were fresh. so, let's have an investigation. but don't expect it to resolve anything. >> so what impact would you expect this issue to potentially have on the midterm election in
november? >> i don't think it would have much impact. to be honest. but there is a sense from democrats, that republicans are trying to press forward with this nomination as fast as they can. i have seen the white house the president trump being careful here. more careful than in sometimes is. about stating his opinion. he's saying let's hear her out. let's see what she has to say and we'll decide. he thinks kavanaugh is being treated unbstly. but is not closed to hearing what miss ford has to say. the white house is waiting itself to see which way the political winds fly. >> steven, thank you so much. we appreciate it. all right. let's turn to the korean peninsula. south carolina president is headed home after his three day
summit with kim jong un in pyongyang. both sides laid out an agenda towards peace and denuclearization. mike pomp called the summit a su success. the united states is ready to restart denuclearization talks. with the goal by ending the talks by 2021. as well as a nuclear complex. only if the u.s. takes corresponding measures. it's a big if that has many people skeptical. let's look at this. and joins us again from seoul in south korea. good to see you again. all the excitement happened on the second day of the summit. this very ambitious list. casting doubt on whether any real progress was made. the u.s. is ready to restart denuclearization talks with the north. what is being said about this?
>> the fact there's being such a positive u.s. reaction at this point. is significant. the fact both the u.s. president and the secretary of state said they welcome what happened at this sum my. and saw it as a success. one thing that is confusing people is the fact that both trump and pompeo said north korea agreed to nuclear inspectors going into the country. secretary pompeo talking about u.s. and iaea inspectors. that wasn't in the declaration. that does seem to be a disconnect between what was announced in north korea and how the u.s. sees that. of course that wouldn't be the first time we have seen that. that is a difference a dpragree difference of opinion. whether or not president moon can bring the two closer together. certainly the reaction to the
summit it appears as though this is as much as the u.s. needed to get these talks back on track. one note, the north korea did agree to shut down a missile test site. one they already promised before. kim jong un told trump he would do that. but did allow inspectors in for that particular part. the facility is very conditional. the north korea want a quid pro quo approach. and step by step denuclearization. and certainly from the initial response from the u.s. it seems like they're not as dead set against that. as they may have once been. >> united states very happy. we saw throughout the course of the three days a warm relationship between the north and south korea leaders. of course moon inhas gone home. the thrd third day was a sightseeing day. talk about the relationship
between the two koreas. >> we heard the two men consistently talk about how close they had become. and the fact they had build a repore. that was cloear to see. this was a pr success at the least. the images were quite dramatic. leader of north and south korea. standing out of a sunroof driving through pyongyang. waving to 100,000 cheering koreans. you have the president of south korea speaking to 150,000 north koreans. and saying he wanted denuclearization. to which the crowd applauded. that in itself is quite remarkable. something that a few months ago even not many people expected. >> it has been extraordinary three days. keeping an eye on the developments throughout the days. joining us live from seoul in
south korea. 4:15 in the afternoon. >> donald trump wants declared he would be the greatest jobs president that god ever created. his trade war could cost the u.s. an opportunity. chairman of chinese online retailer says the pledge he made last year to create 1 million jobs in the united states will no longer happen. because of the trade war. the promise was on the basis of friendly china u.s. corporation and reasonable trade relations. but the current situation has already destroyed that basis. he says this promise cannot be completed. president trump in the flood zone. offering hugs and kind words. and a pledge to give hurricane victims 100% support from the government. plus florence maybe long gone but the flood waters and the dangers are still there. we will take a closer look at

prisoners being transported to another location in south carolina. the van they were riding in was swept off this bridge by flood waters. the deputies inside managed to escape. >> president trump visited some of the hardest hit areas on wednesday. he handed out meals and posed for pictures and gave that little boy a hug. he promised storm victims that they won't be forgotten. >> to the families who have lost loved ones, america grieves with you. and our hearts break for you. god bless you. we will never forget your loss. we will never leave your side. we're with you all the way. and until all those impacted by this terrible storm, our entire american family is with you. and ready to help. and you will recover.
>> unfortunately the situation in some places will get worse before it gets better. that is because rain that fell far inland is slowly moving down swollen rivers towards the ocean. threatening even more flooding. we get more from cnn nick watt in wilmington, north carolina. >> president trump visited the carolinas wednesday and had two main messages. first was we the federal government and president trump we are 100% with you. this will cost a lot of money but we'll provide what is needed. the second message for south carolina was that for you the worst maybe to come. from florence. because so much water fell a lot ore north carolina. both states broke the record for the most precipitation from a tropical storm. all that water is in rivers and heading towards south carolina. con way was the president's final stop. officials told him that they think they may see the worst of
this friday. that may be when their town floods. in north myrtle beach i heard an official said they're slowly becoming an island. some rivers may not crest until next week. up here in north carolina, the governor said this is a state that is hurting and may continue to hurt for sometime. evacuations have been lifted in many places. but drentzs are told it is dangerous to come back. hundreds of roads are still closed. so thousands of people are still in shelters and of course there is the economic impact to industry up here. they rely on tourism and agriculture. three million chickens drowned. 5,000 pigs have died. the cost of this storm will hit this area for sometime to come. cnn, wilmington, north carolina. we turn to meteorologist. joining us from the international weather center.
what more information do you have on this flooding. >> some of the areas still we'll see levels rise. nick of referencing in his story. you'll see conditions go downhill for them. as rlly as next week. it's a long way to go before the conditions begin improving for everyone. over 86 inches of rainfall has come down so far in wilmington. that's the with theest period in 140 years of recordkeeping. and the average for this time of year is 44 inches. double what's supposed to happen and what happened in recent weeks of course. here's the perspective of a gauge. currently major flood stage. notice how much longer it will take. this is around tuesday to the over night hours of monday and tuesday morning. peek will take place. flooding will kopt to see the water level rise within the gauges and unfortunately the river flooding is far from over for millions of people. widespread area of coverage for flood warnings.
also across the midwest united states. we have major flooding in the last couple days with tremendous rainfall. the wettest spot in the country is iowa. southern minnesota and severe weather risk at play today. areas here flooding now of course not associated with florence. but quite a bit of rainfall in that part of the u.s. >> thanks for keeping an eye on those weather systems. it has been one year since hurricane maria made land fall in puerto rico. there is still controversy surrounding the disaster. last month the government raised the official death toll to nearly 3,000. after maintaining for months only 64 had died. president trump rejected the revised toll. calling his administration response an incredible unsung success. marry ya was the first category 4 hurricane to directly impact puerto rico in 84 years. almost the entire island more
than 3 million people, were left without power. many for weeks. the recovery has been slow going. ever since. to mark the anniversary, protestors plab to gather in new york for a prayer service. and march to trump tower to denounce the administration response to the disaster. a vigil is planned at the white house. >> we'll take a short break. still to come two u.s. senators dismissing calls for an fwi investigation in the process now. that is not how they felt about a nomination back in 1991. the difference in the two cases. when we come back. just what is the fbi's role in the nomination process? we will talk with a former fbi official. cancer. it's very personal. at cancer treatment centers of america, we use diagnostic tools that help us better understand what drives each person's cancer. like christine bray. after battling ovarian cancer for several years,

welcome back, everyone. this is cnn "newsroom." update you on the main stories we have been following. south korea president has left pyongyang after his three day summit with north korea leader kim jong un. where they agree to work towards denuclearization. and peace. the u.s. is hailing it as a success. secretary of state says the united states is ready to restart nuclear talks with the north. with the goal of ending those talks by 2021. president trump on wednesday visited some of the areas hardest hit. by hurricane florence. and after math. he handed out meals, pausing for a word or picture. even a hug. saying victims won't be forgotten and promised federal aid to help the region rebuild.
>> has until friday morning to decide whether or not to speak to a u.s. senate committee on her accusations against kavanaugh. ford accused the supreme court nominee of sexually assaulting her in high school. kavanaugh denies the accusation. ford has called for an fbi investigation before she testifies. >> the democrats want the process to slow down. and have called for an fbi investigation. but republicans say the fbi should stay out to have it and isn't budging on the plan for a monday hearing. >> the responsibility falls to us. senate judiciary chairman isn't interested in an investigation either. >> i'm not worried about anything other than just focusing for the next few days on encouraging her to come. >> yet, when then chairman joe
biden called for an fbi investigation into hill's sexual harassment accusations against thomas in 1991. the two is thsenators had a dift view. >> chairman biden and the ranking member thurman. when they heard about this the first time they immediated ordered this fbi investigation. which was a very right thing to do. perfect thing to do. >> when the chairman of the judiciary committee and when the ranking member of the judiciary committee learned of the allegations, the fbi was immediately ordered to conduct an investigation. that investigation was completed before the senate judiciary committee voted. >> former fbi assistant director and law law enforcement analyst. joining me now from new york. to help us make sense of this.
always great to have you with us. >> thank you my pleasure. >> let's look at the senate judiciary committee. it's not an impartial party. not a place where allegations can be investigated in a fair way. should the fbi investigate the allegations? >> my opinion i think they should. at this point. it's gone to the point where the credibility on all sides will be affected by whether this is investigated or not. given the way the allegation is made it could take a short time to do this investigation. >> with regard to what the senators said back in 1991, that's inaccurate. they didn't order the senate didn't order the fbi investigation. the president of the united states did. as an extension of the background. in the u.s. system, nominees pr positions whether it's judges at all levels, u.s. attorney,
secretary of cabinet office. those nominations are made by the president and confirmed or denied by the u.s. senate. the white house when they have an idea of who they'll nominate, they make the request of the fbi to conduct the background investigation. and the fbi doesn't render a decision whether that nomination should go forward. they supply the results of what they found to the white house. and the white house can decide whether they county the nomination of the individual, or withdraw it. with regard to in this case an allegation of a sexual assault. that occurred three decades ago. that's not a federal crime. the idea is the fbi wouldn't normally investigate it. as a criminal offense. that would be a local police jurisdiction issue. in the united states. so that wouldn't happen. but the fbi would investigate as a matter of the background
looking into the character of the nominee. in this case kavanaugh. and then again that could be extended or by the white house. and the results they find are just turned over to the white house and it's up to the president to decide if he still baps the nomination or wants it withdrawn. >> if that were to go ahead. at the moment it's not. if an investigation did go ahead what questions would they ask? and is it in kavanaughs interest to have an fbi investigation to clear his name? otherwise he will have the cloud over his head for his whole term. >> that's true. and the modern internet era he'll have it over his head no matter what happens. if he becomes a u.s. supreme court gist it is. google his name for the rest of his life this will come up. that part is that damage is done for him. his wife and daughters.
with regard to the background extension of having the fbi do this case, it's going to be a matter of the accusations have been made. by professor ford. are they true? when did it happen? where did it happen? who can corroborate it did happen. was there evidence of did she report it to the police, friend or family? anybody else at that time. and so far from the reporting we have seen, it looks like there was nothing reported to anyone for maybe 20 years. at minimum. so that's going to be a challenge for anybody to try to investigate and verify whether or not it actually happened. but, there's a saying of beware of what you ask for. in this case, if her attorneys and her as the accuser are asking for an fbi investigation, part of that will have to look at her credibility. what was she like back in the
day? back at the time of the alleged occurrence. it she drink a lot, what she a party girl, does she have credibility. what do the friends and classmates say she was like at that time. and we don't know. there's been no real reporting one way or the other about it. but she's going to also right now we're looking at kavanaugh needing to be pure as the she's going to have to be also. >> as anita hill has said the senate judiciary committee has no protocol in place to deal with allegations of this nature. she witnessed that firsthand. 27 years ago. and nothing has changed since then. yet we see christine blasey ford being pressured to testify monday. in a political process. that's geared to favor the supreme court nominee. a take it or leave it offer from the committee. should she testify monday? without an fbi investigation.
otherwise what is the reason for coming to this point? >> she needs to testify with or without the investigation. i think that if shi testifies and comes off as extremely believable. and credible. and sincere. i think that will put the pressure the pressure will switch from her to the white house. to order the fbi to extend the background investigation. that is how it would come about if she's believable. if she can't remember any of the specifics of the event, or people that she cites adds witnesses or other people that can verify the story, don't verify the story. that will be difficult for her. >> the judiciary committee is offering to send its staff members to talk with ford. their goal is of course is get kavanaugh confirmed. the questions they ask will not be the same the fbi would ask. it's o political process.
could you see any situation where enough pressure is brought to bear to force an fbi investigation to find out bho is telling the truth? >> yeah. the idea of sending staffers to another state to talk to her is absurd. they're not trained investigators. they're not going to be objective. so i don't see that as being any addition to credibility of the process whatsoever. so they go out there and come back and then if it's a staffer that works for a democrat they'll have one opinion. a staffer for a republican, another. and it's going to go back to the issue. there would be no credibility in that process. so the only pressure here that i think would have to be brought is just pressure on the president. and on the white house. and his attorney. it's a good idea for you to order the fbi to continue the
background or reopen the background information. even though he's had six background before. this particular allegation or aspect was never looked at in the past. it's come up now. take a look. >> we appreciate your expertise. thank you so much. >> you're welcome. we'll take short break. still to come, 47 days until the midterm elections in the united states. even though his name is not on the ballot. trump is weighing heavily on voters mind. we sit down with some female trump supporters for their take. oh! oh! ♪ ozempic®! ♪ (vo) people with type 2 diabetes are excited about the potential of once-weekly ozempic®. in a study with ozempic®, a majority of adults

female supporters are not flinching. we discover, other women who supported him may go a different direction. >> i am very confident in the economic status of where we're at now. what trump has done. and hopefully what he can continue to do in the future. if he has the support behind him. he is a very flawed human being. but aren't we all? >> i kind of am a split person. my children say i'm a confused democrat. because i vote republican. but now i find that the i like at the local level the democrats the ones who are affecting me life every day. >> why do the democrats speak to you more now? >> they're more into social justice. and the social programs. we want to make a difference in the lives of these people that
are not seeing what everyone else is seeing. >> is any part of your vote going to send a message to president trump? do you feel differently about your vote to him. >> i feel different about my vote to him. i voted my christian values. i was hoping he would be more of the candidate that would deliver that for me. and i still maintain hope that his supreme court picks are going to have made voting for him worth it for me. >> i'm standing behind trump because of his conservative values. having the faith base community with him. is very important to the latin community. so yes, i am voting republican. and i didn't register ever until 2015. >> is that right? you never voted until this presidential election. >> no. i felt that, you know, our faith
base community needed support. and. >> what was it about president trump that made you think he had the values? >> he was actually talking to faith based communities. >> for me for the midterm, my message is more to democrats. than republicans. my local elected officials are the reason for and are the reason for the deterioration of the community. it is democrat decision making that has widened the divide between the have and the have notes. >> you're sending a message to the local? >> the local politics are why i am republican tonight. >> the latest polls show 36% of the country approves of the job that he's doing. with women it's lower. only 29%. of women approve. 65% disapprove. why do you think that is? >> it starts with talking about
women's facelifts i think. it's disrespectful. the majority of women i don't think they see him as a respectful, prowoman kind of man. especially people my age. in my age demographic it's a huge deal he's not supportive of easily accessible women's healthcare. in terms of planned parenthood. they feel like they're losing lt right to birth control. pap smears. abortion. >> you're not happy that you voted for -- is that a fair characterization? >> it's fair to say. part of the reason i voted i thought he was going to be the one to make our national security a high priority. and make us safer on our own grounds and territory. when you're making fun of foreign leaders and becoming buddy buddy with vladimir putin. it shakes me up. >> my fear with president trump, is that his extramarital affairs
will make it more of a norm. than the children will think this is acceptable behavior. and it's not. it's hurtful behavior. >> the views of some women voters there. we'll take a short break. stunning video of a melting glacier in green land. suddenly collapsing into the ocean. and with just one event sea levels rose around the world. we know who will perform at next years super bowl halftime show. recognize these guys? before shipstation it was crazy. it's great when you see a hundred orders come in, a hundred orders come in, but then you realize i've got a hundred orders i have to ship out. shipstation streamlined that wh the order data, the weights of , everything is seamlessly put into shipstation, so when we print the shipping ll everything's pretty much done. it's so much easier so now, we're ready, bring on t. shipstation. the number one ch of online sellers. go to shipstation.com/tv
