good night from washington. guess who is next? live from new york city, the financial capital of america, sean hannity. sean: the swamp is tucker's and the sewer is tucker's, and i pay all the taxes. great show as always. we have so much breaking news tonight.. welcome to "hannity." a presumption of innocence it is the very foundation of america's justice system and ap the very core of our constitutional republic. sadly tonight there are some people in this country ready to throw what is the single most important principle to the wind, all in an effort to delay, disrupt the confirmation of judge kavanaugh. i have long emphasized the seriousness of sexual misconduct allegations. kavanaugh and his accuser should testify under oath. sadly, that's just not good enough for some people.
and these are 36-year-old charges, and this dates back to judge kavanaugh's high school in the 1982. we have corroboration by zero witnesses, vehemently denied by the accuser and missing key details like a specific year, location or clear series of events. coming up in a minute, two people that know judge kavanaugh really well will join us tonight. plus, we will expose what is a shameful political posturing by many in this country. their blatant double standard. as we speak, many democrats have horrific histories of sexual misconduct, and they arw revered by their colleagues. some even still roaming the halls of congress.he we will name names tonight and we will also cover this week's big news on fisa abuse. the president ordering previously redacted fisa documents to be released and now, very interesting, erasing some of the deep state swap creatures sweating and freaking out.ra
we will name names that they are. sit tight and buckle up, it's time for our opening news opening monologue. ♪ >> sean: there are a few core principles that we should all agree on that separates this country from a banana republic or a despotic regime. free and fair elections, separation of powers, our great constitution, the best ever given to man. and an impartial system of justice, that deems that every person is innocent until they are proven guilty. sadly, tonight, we have many people in this country on the left putting politics above what is a core foundational principle. by now you probably know the story. judge brett kavanaugh is facing one decades old sexual misconduct allegation, 36 years ago. northern california, psychology professor, christine ford. although the alleged incident occurred when they were both in high school in 1982, ford made these accusations only recently
giving you a few concrete details. both the alleged witness and kavanaugh categorically have now denied the charge. law-enforcement are not investigating the decades-old charge and we welcome judge kavanaugh and his accuser, professor ford, have all been invited to appear rightly before congress on monday. this is a very important, serious allegation. both sides should be given a serious opportunity to speak and be heard. kavanaugh quickly agreed to testify under oath. now that she has been given an invitation, numerous invitations, she has not accepted the invitation. we just have a letter sent by her lawyer to senator grassley of the senate judiciary n committee and she's now calling on the fbi to first investigate her charges as a "first step."" of course, to get a full picture, we should hear from others. this is 36 years ago. people that have known kavanaugh throughout these years, former high school students, former high school girlfriends and college
girlfriends have all been outspoken about what they say is an impeccable character. he has always been a gentleman. 65 women impressively have signed a letter supporting the judge. former female colleagues in the bush white house have spoken up on his behalf. his coaches in basketball, fellow college and law school students.n those who have worked and known him over the last 36 years all speak to his character. none of this seems to interest the democratic party, clearly they are not interested in hearing the full truth. clearly, they want a delay. they want to disrupt thehe kavanaugh nomination and even if that means giving up the presumption of innocence.an no dutra process, no trial, nothing. you don't believe me, we have to tape. take a look. >> this woman is to be believed and you can believe dr. ford. this was attempted rate. and this is a woman who
exhibits dr. ford's courage, the classic signs of post-traumatic stress. >> i believe her. listen, first of all, anyone who comes forward at this point to be prepared to testify in the united states senate against someone who is being nominated to one of the most powerful positions in the united states government, that takes an extraordinary amount of courage. i >> not only do women like dr. ford who bravely comes forward need to be heard but they need to be believed. >> let me say right at the outset, i believe dr. ford, i believe the survivor here has every reason to believe her. she has come forward courageously and bravely. >> sean: it is another rush to judgment. no resumption of innocence. mainstream media carrying the water for the democratic party, they are toeing the party line as per usual. let's take a look.er
>> i believe christine ford because -- to come forward, she has no -- there is no tightness for her to come forward. >> by the end of the week, if judge kavanaugh decides to go through it, maybe he can win, but it wouldn't surprise me if he chose to withdraw and chose to back down. >> is he willing to accept that when the time comes, and withdraw it, or not? >> we need to judge brett kavanaugh on not what he has or hasn't done but how he treats a woman's pain.e that is something i am paying attention to on monday. whether or not he agrees that this happened with her, does he take her pain seriously? >> sean: when you look at all of this, what do youio see? selective moral outrage. they've had this allegation for several months.
professor ford issued a letter to lawmakers back in july. when she met with kavanaugh privately for long periods of time, she never asked anything about this.en and by the way, she didn't ask kavanaugh about the charge during the public hearings that we all watched. the circus that we watched. she didn't inform any of her republican colleagues about the charge until the 11th hour, when a confirmation vote was set. she even admitted today that she can't say everything and being alleged is truthful. a quick moment of truth. but she was excoriated immediately thereafter. watch this. >> i think it's really too bad that no one called her or called her lawyer. my understanding is she got emails. this is a woman that i reallyy believe has been profoundly impacted by this. now i can't say everything is truthful, i don't know. but i do know that they ought
to contact her lawyers. >> sean: well they did and she was invited numerous times to appear before the committee before sending this letter tonight. now feinstein after being excoriated by the base of the party tried to walk back those comments same she believes professor ford is credible. but this is the opposite of what we believe in this country. that's a presumption of innocence, due diligence. frankly what you are saying and what you are observing is dirty political tricks at its worst. we should listen to all sides. then i trust the american people who come to the truth, i trust senators will make the right decision. earlier today the president weighed in on this notable tactic and here's what he said. >> president trump: he's ande incredible individual, greatd intellect and great judge. impeccable history in every way. i feel so badly for him that he is going through this to be
honest with you. i feel so badly for him. this is not a man that deserves this. it should have been brought up long ago and that's what you have hearings for. you don't wait until the hearing is over and then all of a sudden bring it up. i feel that the republicans, and i can speak for myself, we should go through a process because there shouldn't even be a little doubt.nd there shouldn't be doubt. again, they knew what they wers doing and they should have done this a long time ago. three months ago. not now. but they did it now. i don't want to play into their hands. >> sean: the president is right on every point he makest which brings us to the second key detail you need to remember. any of the outrage that you are seeing from democrats over sexual misconduct, nobody else in the media will report this and this is what i mean by selected moral outrage. there was no outrage over
senator ted chappaquiddick kennedy.ed he successfully blocked bork's supreme court nomination by slandering and smearing him. he drove a car off of a bridge into shallow water and left the scene of the crime and his young female passenger who was not his wife died in the submerged car.of he went home to sleep that night. he never called authorities until the following day and he told nobody. s that woman, mary joe kopechne, could have been saved. senator kennedy was revered by democrats as a hero. there was no democratic outrage over -- look at even bill clinton for example, he was beloved by many people in the senate today despite his known track record of h sexual misconduct. monica lewinsky, juanita broderick who accused him of rape, i interviewed her and all those women. still senator feinstein, so
many other democrats who enthusiastically supported clinton and even voted against his impeachment. then there is current u.s. democratic senator sherrod brown whose ex-wife accused him of domestic abuse a few years after they are claiming judge kavanaugh did, and even filed a restraining order against him. there's a new political ad y ot today, look for yourself. >> now, senator sherrod brownin is facing his own me too p movement. these court records show sworn evidence that his ex-wife accused him of abusing her. judge had to issue a restraining order and later she said brown violated the court order, pushing, shoving and building her. brown claims it's a family v matter plus is ex-wife like other victims has a right to be believed. the senator had to resign whens evidence emerges that he mistreated women. why is senator brown different? >> sean: senator brown and his
ex-wife now get along and she supports him politically.ou the record speaks for itself. that's the record. feinstein is apparently unconcerned over those charges and reached out to her office today for comments. crickets. keith ellison running to be minnesota's next attorney general. and his ex-girlfriend recently accused him of serious physical and emotional abuse. ellison went on to win his party's nomination from minnesota attorney general. yesterday, she tweeted the dnc refused to believe her accusations and that they smeared, threatened and isolated her. we reached out to the dnc, we reached out to allison. this is a very same party that is now trying to block kavanaugh's confirmation over decades old misconduct charges from 1982. people on the record, i believe her. do you believe keith ellison's girlfriend, do you believe kathleen willie and juanita broderick?
this is the same party of harvey weinstein and anthony weiner, and i could go on. as i have said before, the charges are serious and we need to hear from kavanaugh's accuser. but when democrats tell you they want to get to the truth and they truly care about misconduct allegations, frankly i think we have just proven they are simply lying. selective moral outrage, rushing to judgment, no presumption of innocence. the american people are smart and they see what's going on. every american deserves this p fundamental principle of presumption of innocence. you all deserve it. and judge kavanaugh deserves it and the woman making the allegation deserves to be heard. these are serious allegations. what you are seeing is a political tactic that we have seen many times.at they did it to judge bork, judge clarence thomas and now, judge kavanaugh. so you also have a right to be skeptical. we will have more on this throughout the show but thanks to president trump we have important of elements on the
deep state tonight. and we do have a disrupter in chief. we have someone breaking dishes and exposing the deep state and now that house of cards is coming crumbling down. yesterday the white house announced that the president declassified key fisa documents that showed up and key officials. we specifically talked about pages 10 through 12, 17 through 34 of the june 2017 fisa application of carter page. all reports of russia related interviews with bruce ohr, interviews compared with carter page and fisa applications, we are now awaiting the release of these important documents which should rock the deep state to its core. by the way, that means information, emails and texts. comey, page, strzok, bruce ohr, christopher steele. let's see itzo all. where is spartacus when we need him? and congressman adam schiff, is worried all his lies about
phony rush of collusion be exposed. well, that this will plant the country at risk and this is evidently no consequence about his narrow self-interest. you are going to be exposed as a big, huge liar. we have all your interviews, all 200,000 of them. and meanwhile, cia director brennan freaking out tonight feeling the heat. actually called on government bureaucrats to defy the president's orders. obviously he doesn't want the constitution but we kind of knew that. take a look. >> i think christopher wray, as well as rod rosenstein, who is overseeing this investigation, should push back against any directive that is going to have negative impact on our capabilities as well as the investigation. so i think they should continue to push, push, push. if mr. trump and the white house does not relent and then
i think they have some decisions to make, whether or not they are just goingr to not follow that direction and be fired, or to resign. if they really believe this is going to have serious impact on a national security, law enforcement and judicial process, they have an obligation since they took an oath of office, not to mr. trump to uphold the responsibilities and agencyth n departments and authorities. >> sean: with all due respect we don't need lectures on the constitution from him. by the way, he is feeling confident from a conspiracy tv, hate to trump nbc, others may be worried tonight. specifically anyone who signed off on those fisa applications. and by the way, mccabe, despite getting fired, and there is currently a grand jury convening at this moment about him, he's going to cash in on his anti-trump hatred. and he has a brand-new book deal and he will need the
money. when the fisa documents are officially released, we should come full circle on his abuse of power. of course, without donald trump's win in 2016, we would know nothing. zero, about the widespread bureaucratic abuse of power. it has taken us almost a year to unpeeled every layer of this onion, and the swamp in the sewer. a lot of work yet to be done. now james o'keefe, projectveritas.com, highlighted this in a brand-new undercover report.je he told the state department of employee and admitted democratic socialist vowing to resist president trump at every level, we are paying the salary of this person. we haven't verified it but you can watch it for yourself. >> i work for the state department. i am a civil servant, i'm a union member and all that good stuff. everything. every level.
>> sean: that's a first in a series and we will follow that very closely. the state department confirmed his employment and so they are taking the matter seriously. we will have more deep state news throughout the show. joining us now for the ire latt reaction, american conservative chairman matt schlapp. chief counsel carrie severino, and fox news contributor tammy bruce. thank you all for being here. you are shaking her head a lot during that monologue. >> i was president of "l.a. now" in the 90s. >> sean: which is now the national organization for women. t >> and i worked on the boxer and feinstein campaigns. i was told we needed fairness, we needed better needed better needed to be something the american people could trust and here we are 26 years later and feinstein is wielding that hatchet. this is not a search for truth or a desire for justice, this is a political assassination of judge kavanaugh.
and the issue becomes here not -- this is what is awful for all of us who have frankly worked to have women be taken seriously on issues of violence against women. domestic violence, rape and harassment, is that we have demanded, said and asserted that women can be taken seriously. they should be, and yet now we don't know what happened 36 years ago. but we do know what happened in july. from that point forward this has been a politicized framework. this woman's experience has been packaged as a weapon andhi this is what we have promised the american people as feminists, that would not happen. you can trust women and we want the system as it exists to simply hear us. we are not asking for the accused to have no rights, to be removed from the process -- due process and rule of law, and yet now that is what every american's hearing. it's an insult to every woman that is sexually assaulted. for those of us who have had experiences like that, it is a
remarkable dismissal of our life experience and what we have demanded from the system. i have to tell you, it's offensive. i it's good over 36 years that she's been in therapy and made choices that were best for her i'm not going to judge those choices, but if she should be heard. and so should the judge. >> sean: when the lawyer says she's been the target of harassment and death threats. all of those in the public, we sympathize and we pray for her, but also pray for judge kavanaugh and his family. we don't know what happened in 1982, but we ought to hear from everybody. that to me is a presumption of innocence and that is fundamental fairness. take the chart seriously and also look at the entire context and a texture that represents the last 36 years of judge kavanaugh's life.
and then i think the american people will make a decision. now they have decided to raise the bar and which demanded an investigation first. hasn't he been investigated by the fbi? >> he absolutely has. this is moving the goal post one time after another. first after holding it all this time there were opportunities to do this in a private environment and confidential that would have spared him iser for the sum of the harassment that she experienced. now that would have been much better and and the republican said, it can be closed or it can be open, she doesn't have to go publicly. and i would understand the stress of anybody. but she has now raised -- let me play you the tape.d this is her attorney on fake news at cnn, but this is one of the rare few moments. she said she would testify.
now raising the bar, demanding this, and this, and this before testifying. let's play the tape. >> will your client testify to the judiciary committee? speak of the is yes. the answer is yes, but now the answer is no. apparently have to do nbc firs. >> and that's done once in conjunction with this nomination. there is an update on this and they had a call yesterday for example. a confidential, classified call you talking about that information -- zero. none of them showed they are not interested in actually following the procedure. if they're interested in inventing a new idea. >> sean: and this is an important point. this is selective outrage. where is the outrage about
keith ellison?ut do we believe his former girlfriend? that's happening currently.ut k pretty harsh, and i understand they have gotten back -- if not together, they are separate but they have resolve some differences. those charges stood. >> there are nine members of the supreme court, some picked by democratic presidents and some picked by republican presidents. why is it, after clarence thomas and now brett kavanaugh and others like robert bork, they were able to treat unfairly in the process. why are the two of the nine having this over their heads, this idea that they acted inappropriate sexually? you know why, because tammy is right. that charge works. and it tends to stick. i want to disagree with something that everyone has been saying about this. i believe we learned nothing on asmonday. i believe she has the right to participate in a very fair process chose not to
participate in the processin because she wants to delay the vote to stop the nomination. this is politics and will not heal anything on monday. republicans better hold the line.g >> sean: two women who know the judge, coming up next. thank you for being with us. he's a genius. she's also a genius. because they went to lendgenius.com to find the loan they needed. get a lender decision in minutes and - with approval receive your money in as little as one business day. lendgenius.com.

an fbi investigation of this allegation from 36 years ago. what is interesting is that aligns dr. ford y with the senae democratic leader senator chuck schumer who has been calling for an fbi investigation, even though there have been a six fbi checks or various nominations. president trump said today the fbi does not want to get involved. the bottom line is judge kavanaugh is here today for the second straight day. he was behind closed doors getting ready for his own testimony. and he wants to deny that there was any kind of sexual assault. he stood behind and said he feels that bad about how judge kavanaugh, his wife and his children have been and treated. cavanaugh's friend, mark judge, said he had no memory of the alleged event, but he does not
want to speak publicly other than saying "i never saw brett act in the manner that dr. ford and described." so that from the only eyewitness that we are aware of it from this alleged incident. chuck schumer, i mentioned, he wants the fbi to launch this investigation. republicans dismiss that saying he wants to delay all this midterms.er the here is the senator as well as the president, watch. >> the fbi should be given time to open its background check investigation into judge kavanaugh. >> president trump: when senator feinstein sat with judge kavanaugh for a long time, a long, long meeting. she had this letter, why did she bring it up? >> senator feinstein defended herself this afternoon saying she kept that letter private because dr. ford wanted to remain anonymous for some time. but the other thing thatft feinstein said, she cannot say for sure that everything is
truthful in terms of what has been said by dr. ford. they are trying to clarify that in feinstein's office tonight, basically that she was not raising doubts about dr. ford, but was instead saying he needed to be investigated by the i fbi. that comment saying she is not sure anything is truthful is going to get a lot of attention. >> sean: joining us now, more supporters of judge kavanaugh who have worked with him in the past. welcome, good to see you. you knew him at yale. >> we've known each other for over 30 years. >> sean: now this is what i was saying. it's a serious charge, she could testify and now they are changing the rules and raising the bar. it seems like they don't really want her -- for some reason, i don't know why, to testify.. he said immediately it is untrue. one witness that she mentioned in the room said it was untrue.
how should we approach something like this? >> the process is up to the judiciary committee. all i can say is that i have known brett for so manyny years. he is the most honest and kind and respectful decent human being that i know, i was absolutely shocked by these allegations. >> sean: one allegation. >> yes. >> sean: 1982. should we put into the fact there are no details, she doesn't remember the place or the location?e >> i don't know her, but i would say what she has alleged is completely inconsistent with the brett kavanaugh that i know.r >> sean: that's what i've been saying. if we are thinking the core principle of this country is the presumption of innocence. i believe strongly in math. we see so many democrats that race out there and say i believe professor ford. my question to you monica is,
you are one of the 65 women that knew him and wrote a letter about who he was at this time in his life. i believe your sister dated him if i'm not mistaken. we have people that also went to college obviously, like leslie who is here tonight. we have people that went to law school with him, people that clerk with him, people thatwe work in the bush white house, i think everybody should be heard. and then we will get a clear picture of his life, won't we? >> they still have the utmost confidence in brett the women throughout his life have testified throughout his life to his character and his behavior. we should be given the opportunity to be heard. he has denied this allegation, and he should be given the opportunity -- >> sean: whatd was he like back then? >> i did not go to high school with him, he was in high school with my siblings.
>> sean: did he date your sister? >> i think they went to a dance or two, yes. >> sean: i don't know if it was dating but they are very good friends. >> very good friends and come up to this day, very good friends. >> sean: if you look at his life, and every group all throughout 36 years, this is a one inconsistent side. and then, the timing of it, this was known to the democrats in july. the democrats are silenced by people like keith ellison and others, but that's recent. do you see politics here? >> i fear that politics is definitely --li >> sean: scary when you consider the severity of something like this, right? i trust the american people, though. professor ford and judge kavanaugh testify, i think thee american people can sort it out.
i have faith in them. very nice to meet you. thank you for coming in. appreciate it, s monica. when we come back, kristin fisher live from washington, where things stand as it relates to the fisa documents. president declassified yesterday, lots of breaking news and thanks for being with us. ♪ benjamin franklin captured lightening in a bottle. over 260 years later, with a little resourcefulness, ingenuity, and grit, we're not only capturing energy from the sun and wind, we're storing it. as the nation's leader in energy storage, we're ensuring americans have the energy they need, whenever they need it. this is our era. this is america's energy era. nextera energy.

want is i want total transparency. this is a witch hunt. republicans are seeing it, the democrats know it is a witch hunt to, but they do not want to admit it because it is politics for them. >> intelligence code officials are now scrabbling to comply with the warrant and unredacted text messages from comey, andrew mccabe, peter strzok, and lisa page. critics say this could jeopardize national security. the fbi director and jeopardy attorney general saying "the action president trump has taken to direct agencies to selectively disclose classified information that he believes he can manipulate publicly to undermine the legitimacy and credibility of the special counsel investigation is a brazen abuse of power.nv they also set in that letter a breathingnt before those documents are disclosed to the white house or anyone else. >> sean: thank you for that report.
here with more reaction, fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett and also fox news investigative reporter sara carter. this is now led to where we are today, it has been a long process sara, we always start with you and the news. i keep hearing that the department of justice, the fbi, are in a little bit of a freak out mode. we saw that from brennan and adam schiff is losing his mind because he will be exposed as a huge liar. are they slow walking lists, w are they trying to defy the l president and, this is extraordinarily dangerous rhetoric. coming out john brennan's mouth, andrew mccabe with his new book by the way which is titled the fbi basically protecting us from terrorists and trump. this type of rhetoric is so dangerous, this doesn't appear to be a witch hunt, it appears to be a silent coup. i don't know how to say it in
any other word, they will try to slow this and they will tryy to drag it with the president has issued an immediate order to have those documents >> sean: i don't like to interrupt you normally, but this isis important. if we know that the highest levels of the community, not rank-and-file, we know they abuse the power. we know they have done it, and we have the evidence. what will this show when we finally get a hold of this information, the fisa warrant, the 302s, the gang of eight, all of the text messages of peter strzok, comey, page. what will we learn? >> i think we can learn that there was an extraordinary abuse of our constitutional rights, malfeasance of the secret court in an effort to spy on carter page just to get close to trump. i think what we are going to
discover -- restore him and prevent him from being president. i've been told there is information in those documents that none of us are aware of, and that will blow our minds when it comes out because it is that extraordinary. >> sean: i have heard that, i have not seen them. gregg jarrett, you have an interesting, strong column out tonight. rod rosenstein defies president trump's order which brandon is encouraging people to do, tos declassify these documents, he should be fired. but it's more than that, isn't it? >> he should be fired for rank insubordination. it wasn't just brennan who said it today, but according to ada. schiff, christopher wray, the fbi director, as well as rod rosenstein said trump's order crosses the red line. what does that mean? does that mean they will defy him or does it mean that they will slow walk the release off these documents, hoping that
they can delay it until the mid terms in congress hands? rosenstein has every motive in the world to try to hide and conceal these documents because they may incriminate him. >> sean: but what he blame others saying he didn't know? >> not good enough. he is on record, when you are fixing your signature, you are testifying to the authenticity of these documents. the federal regulations say you may never go to a fisa judge with information that is unverified. >> sean: all of this is fascinating and twisted at the same time because this is hillary's bought and paid for russian lies, that the government used top intel,
officers, fbi, doj, that they used secure a fisa warrant, never corroborating any of it, which they should, to spy on the trump campaign. then they are using it as a weapon to leak to get mueller appointed because lisa page testified that they didn't have any russian collusion after nine long months of investigation. nothing. >> but they were still searching for a crime and that's why they were looking to the media. they had this pretext, right? they were leaking information that they got from an uncorroborated dossier by a foreign agent from a foreign country based on russian lies, and then they would like that to the media, then all of a sudden when these stories would come out like they verify the fisa on carter page which by the way is a crime because that's considered classified, then they say, the story is out now and now we can go even further and interview more people in the trump campaign.ey although it was all based on lies from the beginning, it's almost like we are living in an upside down world.

constitutional power. he said he wanted to fire comey, but that wasn't the first time he was thinking about it. he thought about it in the summer of 2016 and wanted to get rid of that guy because he didn't like the way he handled the clinton email case. all of this has been under wraps, we have known this and it puts an entirely different perspective on the things the president did in his first months in office, really extraordinary. >> sean: we have been fun peeling an onion, and there have been many others. i can't mention them all. i think he is right. did he also talked about the declassifying end on redacting other stuff?d >> he did. here's the most important thing. he hasn't even read these documents, he's taking a leap of faith of the american public will read the transparencies. this was a hoax meant to
distract the presidency. he is comfortable with the decision to declassify that stuff. he believes it is the right thing to do, and he believes and we see this these documents, we will find out the fbi did not act in the best interest of the united states. that iss his words and what he came away with when we talk to him. >> sean: we mentioned this with sara, terrorism, trump, really? it is sad. this is one of the greatest institutions. i've said this many times, a lot of my family is law enforcement, my mom was a prison guard for 2y years,m so many -- irish family -- cops, nypd, and this is not rank-and-file. what they did is abuse their power. is he confident that we do get to the truth? >> he does appear to have a level of confidence at a level of composure that this is the right thing to do. we will all agree on what happened here. privately, democrats are now telling him that he has been to
service on some of the stuff. he wants to clear his name, but also tois get the american peope to understand what the fbi did wrong and how to make sure it never happens again. >> sean: john solomon, it is on hill.com, we will link it to hannity.com. 45 minute exclusive interview with the president, we will have details for you. when we come back, a new low for hollywood. we have the tape straight ahead. ♪ es he's a genius. she's also a genius. because they went to lendgenius.com to find the loan they needed. get a lender decision in minutes and - with approval receive your money in as little as one business day. lendgenius.com. they have businesses to grow
