all around the world. i'm george howal. >> and i'm natalie allen. cnn newsroom starts right now. at 5:00 a.m. on the u.s. east coast, we start with the latest on the woman accusing u.s. supreme court kavanaugh of sexual assault. there's a new deadline calling on her to testify. chuck grassley says christine blasey fords has until saturday to decide whether she's going to testify before his kmuty. they said if she didn't let them know by wednesday they would vote on monday to confirm brett kavanaugh to the high court. >> and ford's attorney called that deadline arbitrary and asking for another day to decide. committee chairman tweeted judge
kavanaugh, i just granted another extension to ford. she should decide so we can move on. i want to hear her. i hope you understand. rut it's not my normal proach to be indecisive. >> president trump made very clear where he stands on the subject. listen. >> brett kavanaugh, fantastic man, she just announced she won't vote for him, can you believe that. you talk about central casting. they were saying 10 years ago about him. he was born for the u.s. supreme court. he was born for it and it's going to happen. we have to fight for him. not worry about the other side. and by the way women are for that more than anybody would understand. >> and that comes after the president made comments very
clear about kavanaugh's accuser, katelyn collins has moron that. >> reporter: president trump unleashing breaking after days of restraint and lashing out at the woman who's accused his supreme court nominee of sexual assault and tweeting if the alleged attack was as bad as she says it was, christine blasey ford would have filed charges. president trump demanding to know the date, time. algaugzs he has vigorously denied. white house officials were caught off guard by the president's initially mgserred response until he cast doubt on ford's allegations, asking why didn't someone call the fbi 36 years aego? in an interview earlier this week ford recalled thinking i'm not ever telling anyone this. moments before trump attacked
ford, kelly ann conway said >> i hope this woman is not being used by the democrats. >> and the president criticizing democrats who have called for an fbi investigation saying facts don't matter to them. from's remarks kmung as ford 's attorneys continue with the judiciary committee over her possible testimony, including a request that she never be in the same room as kavanaugh. trump tweeting let her testify or not and take the vote. as he continues to tout his nominee's credentials. >> a great intellect. a great gentleman and impeccable reputation. went to yale, top student, went to yale law school, top student. >> reporter: as trump continues to sew dout about the accusations.
>> why didn't somebody call the fbi 36 years ago? now with that being said, let her have her say and let's see how it all works out. sfwlr >> reporter: senator susan collins said she was appalled by the president's tweets. >> we know that allegations of sexual assault are one of the most unrecorded crimes that exist. so i thought that the president's tweet was completely inappropriate and wrong. >> reporter: now president trump addressed the cavanaugh at the rally. that he's not worried about what democrats are doing and that women are for that more than anyone would understand but he didn't mention the specific allegations made nor did he mention the name of his accuser, even though he repeatedly
attacked her on twitter earlier. cnn, traveling with the president in missouri. and now stunning allegations about the second in command at the u.s. justice department. they say the former deputy director of the fbi show this man, rod rosenstein discussed wearing a wire to record conversations with president trump and recruiting cabinet members to remove hum from office. rosenstein denies it all. >> president trump was urged not to make any decision right now. at rally the president didn't publicly criticize rosenstein or the report but did have harsh words for the justice department and the fbi. >> just look at what is now being exposed in our department of justice and the fbi. look at what's going on.
and wherei want to tell you. we have great people in the department of justice. we have great people -- these are people -- i really believe you take a pole. i got to be at 95%. but you got some real bad ones. they're all gone. they're all gone. they're all gone. but there's a lingering sterch and we're going to get rid of that too. >> so the question, what happens of the political fire storm around rosenstein. we have this report ahead. >> reporter: deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein floated the idea of secretly wearing a wire to record president trump last year. the second most powerful person also reportedly discussed with
doj officials are kruting cabinet members to invoke the 25th amendment to remove president trump from office for being unfit. rosenstein vehemently denying this saying the new york times story is factually incorrect. i will not further comment on a stora based on anonymous source whose are obviously bias against the department and advancing their own personal agenda. let me be clear about this, based on my own personal dealings with the president there is no basis to instlovoke twoivth amendment. others told the new yorktumeses that rosenstein was serious and rauzed the idea of others wearing a wire. mccabe, whose memoses have been handed over to special counsel
robert mueller's team was fired following an onslaught of twitter attacks from the president. suggesting mccabe has credibility issues and wanted to to what he could to lay the ground work off a special counsel after comey was fewered. but another source believes mccabe had no incentive to lie. today mccabe denied how the times got their hands. saying he gave all of his memos, classified and unclassified to the special counsel's office. a set of those remoned at the fbi that time of his departure. he has no knowledge of how any member of the media obtained those memos. rosenstein took charge of the russia investigation after attorney general jeff sessions recused himself.
now as for president trump's call to declassify so many othose messages, he now appears to boo ebacking off from that. he put out a tweet saying he would leave it up to the department of justice's inspectorgeneral. rosenstein and kavanaugh, much to discuss in washington d.c. he said this report boy the white house is false. if it's true, what does it say about president trump? and here we have already had an anonymous oped, alleging they're going to quietly try to stifle him. >> as you say this is unsubstantiated reports.
we dent know what the sources are. we have to bear that unmind. it create as lot more kind of fuel for the fire which surrounds the white house and its entire style, its governing, the kind of chaos which runs within it and the kind of schisms which exist about the credibility of the president. so, yes, it doesn't do president trump very much good but that moment we don't fully know what the sources are either. >> the question is what will the fallout be? we certainly know what the president thinks about the justice department. it all goes back to the mueller investigation. you think he'll touch that? >> very difficult to answer. but it seems to me the particular timing is the most significant thing. i think it basically does a lot to -- as we head towards the
midterm elections in november t does a lot to further sthak credibility of the administration and therefore the prau prospects for the house in particular. it's very difficult to speculate on how this is going to play out. but whereby think it creates an image and the image is this is an administration unable to be coherent, well governed, organized and so on. i think to lead to this kind of position, it suggestests there's a credibility problem for trump within the party, party leadership but i think it also plauinize to the democratic party's hands for the election asual. >> let's talk about the other pressing issue. supreme court bid. republicans want him on the court and they want it for the midterm elections. if they don't appear to take the allegation by this professor, this female professor ford
seriously enough and we heard mcconnell say we're going to plow through it. that doesn't sound like sensitivity. or will that embolden republicans regardless? >> this is a very risky strategy, probably that the president and his team have embarked upon. i think it's reignited, if you like the #me too movement and politics around predatory dags sexual predators. and again it seems politically timed for these particular lectio elections and times to strengthen the flow of white women voters from the republican party towards the democrats for november. so if kavanaugh is to be confirmed before the midterms,
and remember thus is an allegation and not a proven fact, it is going to possibly damage the midterms. but in the longer run having an ultraconservative on the supreme court is a massive victory and that's going to flilive for man decades. even if it hurts them in the midterm elections. >> democrats keep emphasizing that in this back and forth with kavanaugh and his accuser of this is for life and this will change this court for many, many years to come. do you think we'll hear anything more from kavanaugh here? he's been at the white house every day working on this, hunkering down with them there. he's not asking for an investigation and why not clear his name so if he gets on the court he wouldn't be like
clarence thomas and tainted. >> it's a very delicate situation and what i read is mr. kavanaugh has appointed a female attorn a. he t tuzant want to come over as strong man -- i think he's trying to handle it as delicately as possible and get his conformation through. both rosenstein and this issue, i think, are connected. they're both politically times for the midterm elections. i always go back to 2016. i think 2016 was a very unusual year and uncovered major rifts and divides along class and economic lines. we're kind of back to a sort of
politics of the normal that is palace intrigue, internal politics, identity politics, whereas 2016 came to the for with economic equality and so on. i think this is suppressing some of the deep divisions in the society and i think those divisions are going to carry on. but i think this is a kind of maujer shift to the right unamerican politics. >> always appreciate your insight. thank you. hurricane florence causing trouble for the carolinas. >> officials warn a possible environmental issues as well. we'll have that plus. >> within seconds a woman came out of nowhere and just hugged me. she had no idea who i was. but i was the first outsider she had seen in days. >> one year after one of the deadliest natural disasters in
