trump says, he found christine blasey ford to be a "very credible witness" . and called her testimony "compelling".. but he equally touted judge kavanaugh for his adamant denial before the senate judiciary committee. (vicki) country.>(vicki) the president went on to call dr. ford a good person.... earlier this week - for the first time - he indicated he'd be opento replacing kavanaugh but wanted to hear the testimony first.. but now he's saying that he's 'not' considering a replacement.. (vicki)the fbi investigation will delay the nomination a week.. but what difference can a week really make? (grant) kron 4's hermela aregawi spoke to a former fbi agent about that... and is here with
9:06 pm
us now.. hermela, what can we expect? (hermela aregawi)according to former fbi agent rick smith.. we shouldn't expect any groundbreaking information to come out. he says.. it's an old case.. there's not a lot of people to interview..and so he tells me.. in a week, the story will look a lot like what it does today. history unfolds.. as the fbi is thurst into the center of a controversial supreme court nomination... and the me too movement..the case.. dr. christine blasey ford versus judge brett says.. when they were in high school.. the nominee pushed her into a room.. pinned her to a bed, tried to take her clothes off.. and then put his hand over her mouth to keep her from yelling.he says... it never happened. the fbi has been given a week to investigate the case... but is that enough time?rick smith/former fbi agentthat's enough time, there's 56 field offices, 63 legal ataches foreign offices, and you've got 13,000 agent. this is the biggest thing in the country right now, they'll get it done. but what are the chances the agency will uncover new information that will dramatically change the narrative?rick smith/former fbi agentit's a 36 year old case. there's not that many people involved that will testify or can be identified and it's old, so to expect to get a lot of evidentiary
9:07 pm
information or corroborating evidence difficult to imagine that happening. this investigation satisfies some requirement based on where they are right now, they're kind of stuck and so if that's accomplished and you can move forward and vote based on what's uncovered and not uncovered. i think we're very likely to end up where we are right now at the end of this background because of the time that has passed. it's a long time ago and that's why there are statue of limitations because of the time that passes. people's memory changes. you don't recollect stuff.but the fbi has a key witness, that they refused to subpoena ahead of thisweek's hearings. ford says.. kavanaugh's friend mark judge was in the room during the assault. through his lawyer.. judge now says.. he is willing to cooperate with the investigation. rick smith/former fbi agentwhat develops out of a case is witness testimony which would allow for one side to be more believable than the other. who knows what's going to happen but if people have already testified or provided statements indicating they weren't there. so it's hard to believe that it will be that much different than it is right now. right now. different than it is be that much believe that it will be that much different than it is right now. right now. different than it is right now.
