"usa today" reporting attorneys for christine blasey ford have provided the senate with signed declarations from four people who said she told them in recent years about brett kavanaugh's alleged sexual assault from decades ago. one declaration is from her husband whose knowledge was already reported. three new people are coming forward with information saying ford total them about the alleged incident between 2013 and 2017. no eyewitness accounts, but they speak to knowledge of the incident before those accusations were made public. >> one says ford was especially angry at the light sentence for brock turner, the stanford swimmer that got a six-month term for a
sexual assault on an unconscious 22-year-old. ford is said to have told her friend at the time -- they were watching their kids on a playground ---y th y thathat sh bothered by the light sentence. that she had been assaulted earlier by someone who is now a federal judge in d.c. later naming kavanaugh in an e-mail sent after anthony kennedy retired. >> just over 24 hours to the senate hearing that could seal kavanaugh's fate, the vote on his nomination is set before ford has even been heard. the judiciary committee setting the vote for friday morning now at 9:30. >> the judiciary chairman, chuck grassley, saying the vote could be delayed, but dianne feinstein saying, quote, first republicans demanded dr. blasey ford testify immediately. now republicans don't even need to hear her before moving ahead with the vote. >> committee republicans announcing that an arizona sex crimes prosecutor, rachel mitchell, will be on hand to ask at least some questions for
their side. at least one critical gop vote appears to be wavering a bit. alaska senator murkowski telling "the new york times" it's not about whether or not judge kavanaugh's qualified. it's about whether or not a woman who has been a victim at some point in her life is to be believed. and she later added this -- >> should there be a full fbi investigation into the allegations of kavanaugh's past? >> well -- >> you have -- >> it would sure clear up all the questions, wouldn't it? >> it would sure clear up all the questions. murkowski also wants the a second kavanaugh accuser. that's debbie ramirez. around the time murkowski said that on tuesday, the president forcefully rejected ramirez's allegations. >> now a new charge comes up, it might not be him, there were gaps. she said she was totally inebriated. she was all messed up and doesn't know it was him, but it might have been him.
oh, gee, let's not make him a supreme court judge because of that. >> one senior republican senate aide says those comments were not helpful. a source says republicans have tried to tread incredibly lightly to keep moderate gop senators on board. the president wasn't exactly playing along later when he said democrats are playing a high-level con game. pray for brett kavanaugh and his family. president trump returns to the u.n. for a series of meetings with world leaders. benjamin netanyahu of israel, shinzo abe of japan, and britain's theresa may. he will chair a security council meeting focused on iran. tuesday he addressed the u.n. for the second time as president. and after repeated claims that the world laughed at the u.s. under past administrations, it literally happened under trump. yesterday it happened to the president's face. >> in less than two years, my administration has accomplished
more than almost any administration in the history of our country. [ laughter ] america's -- so true. didn't expect that reaction, but that's okay. [ laughter ] >> mr. trump pushed his america-first agenda insisting the global migration crisis can be solved by making all countries great again. the president's main focus on iran, accusing the regime of sowing chaos, death, and destruction, and urged other countries to join the u.s. by putting economic pressure on iran. afterward, the national security adviser, john bolton, went further. >> the murderous regime and its supporters will face significant consequences if they do not change their behavior. let my message today be very clear -- we are watching, and we will come after you. if you harm our citizens, if you continue to lie, cheat, and deceive, yes, there, indeed, be
hell to pay. [ applause ] >> iran immediately lashed back at the u.s. here's what president rouhani told the u.n. -- >> translator: it is unfortunate that we are witnessing rumors in the world who think they can secure their interests better or at least in the short term ride public sentiments and gain public support through the extremist nationalism and racism and xenophobic tendencies resembling a nazi disposition. >> we have more from fred pleitgen with the latest from moscow. fred? >> reporter: certainly sparks flying between the u.s. and iran. if it was the president's idea to make rouhani unpopular, it seems the opposite is the case. after the speech, iranian social media exploding with criticism
of president trump, accusing him of being rude and impolite. also, of course, voicing support for iran's president hassan rouhani. a couple of minutes ago, i looked at some newspaper headlines in iran. one of the things they talk mostly about is the fact that president trump got laughed at at the united nations when he was doing that speech. we've to keep in mind that -- we have to keep in mind that this happened when president rue happeny is embattled at home -- rouhani is embattled at home. the economy is not doing well, trouble with the hard-liners. seems the criticism he is getting from president trump is uniting those factions more than anything else. both the supreme leader and rouhani said right now a meeting with president trump is absolutely off the table. they say it would be nothing more than a photo opportunity. certainly, we've seen the sparks fly once at the united nations. and we might see more of that later today. >> we'll hear from president trump at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. thanks. house republicans planning to subpoena the justice department for memorial rows --
memos written by andrew mccabe. sources say last year rosenstein suggested secretly recording conversations with the president, maybe joking, maybe not, suggested invoking the 25th amendment to remove mr. trump from office. again, maybe it was a joke, maybe not. >> rosenstein, who oversees the special counsel's russia investigation, has denied the allegations. regardless he went to the white house monday expecting to be fired, but that didn't happen. rosenstein set to meet with the president at the white house thursday. two officials say it would be a mistake to assume he will be fired at least for now. the controversy fueling calls from conservative republicans for rosenstein to testify before congress this week. bill cosby sentenced to three to ten years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting andrea constand at his home 14 years ago. the disgraced comedian and actor escorted from the courthouse in handcuffs with his bail revoked. >> he used his acting skills and endearing tv personality to
win over his victims and then keep them silent about what he did to them. now finally bill cosby has been unmasked, and we have seen the real man as he has headed off to prison. >> cosby ordered to pay a $25,000 fine, plus the prosecution's expenses as part of his sentence. his lawyers have filed an appeal. cosby's wife camille was not in the courtroom tuesday. her husband's spokesman calling the trial the most racist and sexist in the history of the united states. operations this morning are back to normal at delta after the airline was forced to issue a ground stop on all flights for at least an hour. delta is blaming a technology issue. flights in the air were not disrupted. some air travelers taking to social media to air their frustration. others offering thanks to the crew, thanking gate agents for bringing doughnuts to the passengers as they waited on the tarmac. ahead, could the affects of climate change make some national parks disappear?

morning at 9:30 a.m. eastern. judiciary chairman chuck grassley leaving open the possibility that the vote could be delayed. but the ranking democrat, dianne feinstein, said, quote, first republicans demanded dr. blasey ford testify immediately. now republicans don't even need to hear her before they move ahead with a vote. >> committee republicans announcing that an arizona sex crimes prosecutor, rachel mitchell, will be on hand to -- to ask at least some questions for their side. at least one critical gop vote appears to be wavering. alaska senator lisa murkowski telling "the new york times" it's not about whether or not judge kavanaugh is qualified. it's about whether or not a women who has been a victim is to be believed. and she added this -- >> should as well be a full fbi investigation into the allegations from kavanaugh's past? >> well -- it would sure -- it would sure clear up all the questions, wouldn't it?
>> and the stage exited there. murkowski also wants the judiciary committee to hear from the second kavanaugh accuser. that's debbie ramirez. around the time murkowski said that on tuesday, the president forcefully rejected ramirez's allegation. >> now a new charge comes up. she said there -- it might not be him, there were gaps. she said she was totally inebriated. she was all messed up and doesn't know it was him, but it might have been him. oh, gee, let's not make him a supreme court judge because of that. >> one senior republican senate aide says those comments were not helpful. a source says republicans have tried incredibly lightly to keep moderate gop senators on board. the president wasn't exactly playing along later when he said democrats are playing a high-level con game. pray for brett kavanaugh and his family. president trump returns to the u.n. for a series of meetings with world leaders.
benjamin netanyahu of israel, shinzo abe of japan, and britain's theresa may. he will chair a security council meeting focused on iran. tuesday he addressed the u.n. for the second time as president. he claimed that previous administrations, the world laughed at the u.s. yesterday it literally happened under him. >> in less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country. [ laughter ] america's -- so true. didn't expect that reaction, but that's okay. [ laughter ] >> mr. president trump wont to push his america-first agenda since existing that global migration crisis can be solved by making all countries, quote, great again. but the president's main focus was on iran, accusing the regime
of sowing chaos, death, and destruction, and urged other countries to join the u.s. by putting economic pressure on iran. afterward, the national security adviser, john bolton, went further. >> the murderous regime and its supporters will face significant consequences if they do not change their behavior. let my message today be very clear -- we are watching, and we will come after you. if you harm our citizens, if you continue to lie, cheat, and deceive, yes, there, indeed, be hell to pay. >> iran lashed back at the u.s. here's what president hassan rouhani told the u.n. -- >> translator: it is unfortunate that we are witnessing rumors in the world who think they can secure their interests better or at least in the short through public sentiments and gain public support through the extremist nationalism and racism and xenophobic tendencies
resembling a nazi disposition. >> we have two distinguished guests. josh rogue an for the "washington post" and nic robertson, both in studio. nic, the international diplomatic editor, of course, here at cnn. >> welcome. >> good to see you in studio. >> good morning. >> let's start with the laughter moment. as christine mentioned, there's a lot of context here for mr. trump talking about the world laughing at the united states. listen -- >> the world is laughing at us, folks. they're laughing at us, at our stupidity. they laugh at us. they're laughing at us. it's crazy what's going on. everybody's laughing at us. they're laughing at us. we don't know what we're doing. they're laughing at us because they think we're stupid. the whole world is laughing at us. they're laughing at this -- at what's going on in our country. the world laughs at us, folks. the world laughs at us. >> that's 20 seconds. it could go on. >> it happened directly to his face. he said later it was meant to get laughter, he said it was great. how significant was that moment? >> number one it didn't seem in
the moment that he was expecting that. that was his clear reaction. it is significant. last year the world was suspending its disbelief or belief in the way president trump was going to be. this year they knew. when he started down the track, almost the way he started his speech last year, he became, in their eyes, a caricature of himself. this is what they were expecting. they were expecting him to get up and big up himself first. when you have billions of people on the plan tote talk, but he talks -- planet to talk about, he talks about himself. that was the root of the laughter. this is a shame for the united states. this is a difficulty for him. he wants, he said in the speech, talking about iran, to isolate iran. how does that happen? when you've been laughed at. >> it's interesting, when he goes to rallies, he reads literally from a piece of paper of all the things he thinks he's done right and great accomplishments of his administration. he does that at the u.n., and it
is not an ohio crowd. it's a different crowd. >> you get the sense that mr. trump is not used to a critical audience. when he heard the laughter he was surprised that his laughable claims elicited laughter. maybe that's good. maybe the president once a year he should hear from an audience that doesn't automatically tell him what he wants to hear. that laughter dissipated pretty quick as he went into the speech, anti-globalization, anti-immigration, anti-migration speech, credit sighting the world organizations -- criticizing the world organization that's we're here in new york to celebrate. >> criticizing foreign aid -- >> and sabre rattling and blustering and threatening. there's no laughter about that. those are serious issues, issues where the united states has put itself on the opposite side of its friends and allies. what's the different between last year? last year we had an iranian nuclear deal we were part of with our european allies and
russia and china. this year the european allies on the first day of the week announced that they'll work with iran to subvert american policy. that's not funny. that's not a joke. that's us losing all of our allies, our main enemy. now we have to see whether or not this new pressure on iran is going to work. we're going to ramp up the pressure, be tough, we're going to say lots of tough things. maybe the iranians will fold and do everything we say. or maybe our european partners will fold and do everything we say. if not, there are huge consequences to that. i think it's a light moment. we can say, oh, isn't that funny that everyone thinks that our president is a joke. but underneath that, some very serious, very dangerous issues that he's dealing with. >> when they weren't laughing, they may have gobeen googling things like global governance and doctrine of patriotism. you said there were echoes of the 1930s. why and how significant that was? >> i wasn't the only one to get that takeaway. it's ironic that you have echoes of the 1930s because the u.n. grew out of the chaos that came
as a product of the nationalism that was abundant in the 1930s. if you listened to the speech of rouhani, he talked about some leaders using xenophobia that tends toward naziism. if you listen to the passionate speech of emmanuel macron, the french president who took the podium later in the day, he was thumping the lectern, even apologized later, thumping it with passion. he was also raising people's attention to we've heard this before, that we've heard this type of speech before. it's dark, it doesn't portend anything good. and if you listen to the beginning of the day to what the u.n. secretary general, antonio gutierrez, said, he talked about the fear of how the isolation and fear between nations, this is happening between china and the united states and other countries, as well. the fear he talked about, you know, in greece thousands of years ago, the athenians went to war with the spartans because
the spartans were afraid of how well their nearby city-state was doing. the u.n. secretary general is putting it on the map where this type of language leads. so this reference to the 1930s, this harkening back to an era that we've seen before that leads to chaos and possible wash, it's very real. that's why the mood i think toward the end was so somber and dark. >> interesting to point out the lesson of the 1930s, we were the good guys. we saved the world from facism and totalitarianism. the regime is the holocaust deniers. when they throw around anti-nazi rhetoric, they're the denierden. and the united states helped provide peace, prosperity, stability for the entire world. now it's a shame that the president of the united states doesn't appreciate that. that he doesn't see any value in that, that he doesn't realize the united states' strength is based on our alliances in the very organizations he disparages.
at the end of the day, he does some points. the iranian regime is malicious. they are bad. they're destabilizing. they are aggressive and militant and belligerent. that's a problem. the question i think for america is do we solve that problem by ourselves, or do we solve the problem with all these organizations and allies that we spend all the time -- >> we talk about the mood, how somber by the end of the day. let's listen to what the president said, the rejection of globalism. i think it's important to listen in the president's own words. >> america is governor e-- governed by americans. we reject the etiology of globalism and embrace the -- etiology of globalism and embrace the doctrine. we should obsessive our own beliefs and traditions. the united states will not tell you how to live or work or worship. we only ask that you honor our
sovereignty in return. >> wow. i mean, that is a rejection really of 70 years of american foreign policy. >> coming out of the second world war. everything that the united states built the economic order to protect us from -- from this -- that type of catastrophe again. this president is actively undermining it. his audience there in many cases, and his audience knows it. he picked out again, beat up on germany, you know, largest political -- largest economic powerhouse in europe. picked on them again and did that at nato a few months ago. you know, why -- i mean, we understan understand why he's doing it. the question, this is on to josh's point here, is is that productive to get done what the united states wants to get done? and the answer in that laughter today had to be, gee, maybe -- maybe not. there's a better way to do this. >> yeah. i think it's worth explaining why he's doing it. and the reason is is because that speech is not pointed at u.n. diplomats. not pointed at journalists. it's pointed at his base.
he's heading into a midterm. these are the foreign policy notes that rang true with his voters, with the people who put him into office. they have this well-sown fear of globalization. globalization is inevitable. globalization is just what's going on. but they demonize this idea in such a comprehensive way that when the president gets in front of these crowds, he makes these broad claims that somehow we can go back to a time when america could act alone and without partners and allies and outside of the international norms and organizations that exist. i don't think it's going to work. i don't think he's going to do most of that. but it's important when you're listening to him to understand he's not talking to the diplomats. he's talking to the people who are going to vote in november. >> whatever he says behind closed doors with the diplomats, he undermines the message. and it just reenforces that impression that president trump, the impression that many people around the world have, that president trump flip-flops and is inconsistent.
