possum pound. congratulations they had gone 600 days without a win. leads them back to a victory. tough luck, jets fans. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. have a great weekend. thanks for joining us. >> brett kavanaugh is one of the finest human beings you will ever have the privilege of knowing or meeting. >> the senate has a responsibility here. they have to make sure it's fair and they have got to take the politics out of this situation. >> judge kavanaugh does not have the burden of proving his innocence. he has said he was not present. >> we have to get out for the mid terms. promise me. don't be complacent. the new platform of the democrat party is radical socialism and open borders. i won't allow the united states to become the next venezuela. >> the president's attorneys come closer to an agreement with mueller. the president has ordered the declassification of documents. >> anyone who said there isn't politics in the
3:01 am
intelligence community ought to read these emails and read these text messages. >> it has to come to an end. it's so bad for our country. i call it the witch-hunt. >> the browns win, the browns beating the new york jets 21-17 for first win in almost two years. ♪ you know i love it when you get your shine on ♪ steve: live from new york city, friday, september 21st. it's "fox & friends." ainsley: it is. it's a friday. ed is filling in for brian today. glad to have you here. ed: thank you so much. happy birthday a day late. ainsley: thank you so much. it was a wonderful day. thank you for all the happy birthdays on social media. i felt -- it was really fun. i stayed up really late. i stayed up until about 11:57 last night until the very end. and it was just awesome.
3:02 am
so thanks for making it special. ed: it's awesome. you probably got a chance to see the president then because sean had him live on the fox news channel. ainsley: did i. brian: rally in las vegas. steve: out there to rally the g.o.p. base to get out there and vote for dean heller. he was appearing at the convention center in las vegas. in addition to campaigning for him, also campaigning for congressional candidates crescent hardy and danny tarkanian and republican candidate for governor adam wax all theualt. he made it very clear politics is on his mind and a lot of politics regarding the kavanaugh. >> i think it's a very bad situation. he is outstanding person. and frankly, sean, to see what's going on is just very, very sad. you have say why didn't somebody call the fbi 36 years ago? i mean you could also say when did this all happen? what's going on? to take a man like this and
3:03 am
besmirch. with that being said, let her have her say and see how it works out. i don't think you can delay it any longer. they have delayed it a week already. sean: and you have been been very accommodating. >> i have been accommodating. i said let her say what she has to say and see how it all comes out. buff they have delayed it a week and they have to get on with it. steve: big question is it sounded like, until late last night it sounded like the hearing was going to be monday and if she didn't show she wasn't going to show. mr. kavanaugh made it clear he would come. but, if she didn't talk, why would he show up. then, as it turns out, her attorney, ms. katz called the committee and they talked for about half an hour and they started negotiating an appearance which is unusual for a congressional testimony. ed: started with the accuser saying she wanted to be heard. and so the republicans have spent the last week okay we want to hear you. let's have a hearing on monday. and she didn't initially want to do that. and now you see her team
3:04 am
trying to dictate the terms of that testimony. ainsley: they have listed a few terms. they say she will only talk, she has agreed to be interviewed by the committee only, no questions from lawyers. says that judge kavanaugh cannot be in the room when she is testifying. and that judge kavanaugh has to testify first. >> steve: the reason accord ing to "the washington post she doesn't want any lawyers asking the questions because her attorney doesn't want to make it look like she is on trial. and also she would like to have the optics of all these men asking her questions. ed: men all republicans. men ganging up on dr. ford whereas if you have lawyers brought, in obviously the republicans would bring in male lawyers and female lawyers and spread it out a little bit. it would be a different optic. ains judge napolitano was on yesterday he said you won't hear from him first and the accuser first and then he can defend
3:05 am
himself. never recommend that he talk first. he sent a letter to senator grassley. thank you for the invin a invitn to appear before the senate judiciary committee september 24th. i will be there. steve: i continue to want a hearing as soon as possible so i can clear my name since the moment i first heard this allegation. i have unequivocally and categorically denied it i remain committed to defending my integrity. steve: a high ranking person in the senate did talk to the "the washington post" last night. they said the idea of having mr. kavanaugh go first is a nonstarter. that doesn't make any sense. we should also point that dr. christine ford's attorney says monday, not possible. might be able to do it later in the week. so, where we stand right now, is she has set out these negotiating points where she would like them met.
3:06 am
apparently chuck grassley is going to poll -- talk to the audience of his colleagues and figure out where to go from here. will it be monday? doesn't look like he would be there. will it be tuesday? kavanaugh says he is ready to be there anywhere, any time. ed: judge kavanaugh deserves a right to defend himself after hearing what the actual accusations are. he hasn't actually heard it he has read a story in the "the washington post." has insisted he wasn't at this party that allegedly happened. ben shapiro was talking about how there seemed to be different standards. why it s. it that the rah cufer's word seem to have more weight in political debate than judge kavanaugh's denial. >> the idea that justice, truth and guilt and innocence, these things can be decided simply to appeal men are bad and women must always be believed? it's absurd. you have to have some standard of evidence before you destroy a man's life. you have to give him a chance to defend himself. democrats are saying if he
3:07 am
defends himself he is insulting the woman. demonstrative of the fact in we wanted to get to the truth if democrats gave one crap about this. democrats would be putting this woman in front of a hearing calling whatever witnesses they could and attempting to bolster her case. they wouldn't attempted to hide her and suggesting any questions ask are undermining the justice system. steve: accord ing to "the washington post, her attorney wanted to make sure reporters were kept at a stance from her when she testifies also concerned about her safety. i hope you realize she has been getting death threats. ed: judge kavanaugh's family has been getting vile emails. some of them were released yesterday and death threats as well. neither side should be dealing with that kind of nonsense, horrible. ainsley: i really hope that she does agree to talk so we can hear her side of the story and hear his side of the story. any of the alleged witnesses they have said that they are not going to be testifying.
3:08 am
steve: sounds as if the ford team wanted to subpoena some of the people like mark judge and others and they said we are not going to subpoena anybody else. john cornyn, the senator from the great state of texas said no more witnesses. we had a hearing. that's what i call hijacking the regular committee process to accommodate political interest. there was one other factor, and i'm sure being down in washington yesterday, you saw the fact that a fellow by the name of ed wheelen one of the clerks for antonin scalia and supporter of judge kavanaugh he looked at what christine ford told "the washington post" and figured out okay, these people were named, these four people, where did they live? and looked at what she had said. and figured out what house it may have happened at because it was a house closest to the golf course and then realized whose house it was and looked at a picture of the young man who lived there at the time who was classmate of mr. kavanaugh's. put up side by side images,
3:09 am
they look a lot a like. ed: is it a case of mistaken identity. dr. ford put out a statement she knows the difference between judge kavanaugh and the other man: we were teeing um. this is going to be a real clash of ideas. they are are going to talk about abortion. they are going to talk about gun rights. all these big things before the high court. and what happened before dr. ford came out? they had those three or four days of confirmation hearings. from the opening moments, it was resist. it was protesters screaming, shouting down dr. kavanaugh and senators. spartacus moment. all of that was a circus before we even got to this. instead of hearing from this woman, instead all the focus has been about politics and all of that instead of the actual substance of the allegations. ainsley: those were her terms. her attorney gave those three terms. the last term is kavanaugh should be questioned first. he might say i don't agree to that i need to hear what she is accusing me of exactly before i can go under oath and say this
3:10 am
didn't happen. he needs to hear from her first. that might be -- some people are saying that's a political stunt. she is actually saying that because she actually is not going to talk and that will be her reason because kavanaugh is not going to testify first. we have to see. steve: i don't think it's up to kavanaugh. it's up to the senators. it will be interesting to see how chuck grassley and company and even the senate majority leader because there is some suggestion that he saw one of laura ingraham's tweets last night. he might be thinking about moving the hearing to the future. ainsley: not up to kavanaugh it's not up to her either. it's up to the senators to make the rules. steve: it's a negotiation for them to get her. ed: we are hearing it may be pushed back to next thursday. we will see where it all goes. ainsley: turning now to more headlines starting with a fox news alert. while you were sleeping, a suspect is shot dead in a police shootout in miami. we want to warn you the video you are about to see might be disturbing. [gunfire] >> oh my god. what is that?

mike and jen doyle? yeah. time for medicare, huh. i have no idea how we're going to get through this. follow me. choosing a plan can be super-complicated. but it doesn't have to be. unitedhealthcare can guide you through the confusion, with helpful people, tools and plans. including the only plans with the aarp name. well that wasn't so bad at all. that's how we like it. aarp medicare plans, from unitedhealthcare. aarp medicare plans, this is john, and i'm with pactel cellular in los angeles. well, welcome to the demo... (danny dichter) in 1989, a new wireless technology was being tested for the first time ever. it allowed more users to connect at the same time while on the move. other wireless carriers considered the tech too expensive, but we saw it as the birth of reliability and the backbone of a company we all know as verizon. so we were the first to commit to the cdma system and the first to build our entire network around it.
3:17 am
today, once again, we're transforming reliability as we know it, building america's first and only 5g ultra wideband network-- with unprecedented capacity, enabling faster speeds and the lowest latency anyone has ever experienced on a wireless network. which is crucial, because we'll be relying on it more than ever. (man) it's really quite impressive, uh, what y'all have put together here to, uh, to show the quality of the system. steve: here is a story we have been following a female jogger stabbed to death on a d.c. street days after she got engaged. this surveillance video showing the moment wendy martinez stumbled into a nearby restaurant seeking help. ed: police in less than 48 hours they believe committed such a senseless act. jillian is down in d.c.
3:18 am
she has been following this story and talked to the family yesterday. jillian, what's the latest? >> that video that surveillance video is really graphic to watch. and all thanks to good policing, surveillance video as we mentioned and tips. the police were able to arrest 23-year-old anthony crawford in a short period of time in a senseless act can't explain. they say it's so random and unprovoked. we spoke with her family in the very place where she had her final moments. >> >> her wedding dress -- i was here last weekend we went to the store for that reason. i never imagined that dress was the dress for her burial. my daughter was very loving. she had a lot of dreams and she loved her community and she was very proud to be a latina? jillian: what do you think
3:19 am
the speakers and flowers. >> appreciation. >> over the course of my 30 years in policing, this does not happen. this type of thing really doesn't happen hardly at all. almost never. i have a little bit difficulty talking about this in detail. the injury that she suffered was very, very serious. there were multiple witnesses that were on the scene that had given us a description that was consistent with the person of interest in the video. >> people have cameras all over their homes nowadays. police need that. >> police needed it. a new valuable tool that police officers used in their various investigations. >> jillian: also good policing. >> what we found here was washington's finest. what you had was beat police officers who knew the community. what you had were detectives who knew how to conduct investigations. and you had citizen involvement. those three was a concoction that led to a suspect in the
3:20 am
murder here of wendy martinez. >> one of the things i would like to say it was really kind refreshing to see that the people who saw her in this very serious condition, their first thought was to try to help her. the only thing that we can do is bring some closure to the family and then make the community feel safer. when we take a person like this off the street. >> the outpouring of support for your sister, what's it like. >> it's incredible. something i would have never expected. honestly it's one of the most beautiful things i have ever seen. that's why i can't lose my faith in humanity. jillian: her family honestly so strong at this moment. they say prayer has been pulling them through saying her life was a true testament of their faith and belief in the lord. he haded what he a strong family. steve: obviously that video we put out and everybody else put out probably cracked the case because you could clearly tell a lot about the person. ed: a lot coming up. ainsley: brett kavanaugh's accuser setting her own

what it will definitely do senner jiz conservative voters. they will be very angry that this seemed like that this came out of nowhere. senator feinstein delayed sending this letter over and we are in the situation when this issue could have been brought up during testimony. and brought up in a variety of ways throughout the process. this unorthodox charge and the circumstance led to the situation. definitely fire up conservative voters in a variety of states and help us win seats. ed: we have seen republican swing votes like susan collins who were not going to be there graph stating towards him they were upset dr. ford's team said they wanted to be heard and then didn't appear like they were going to show up next week at all for any kind of testimony. have you got to come forward and talk. what if she does talk, dr. ford, and is very effective? could that be devastating with some of these swing
3:27 am
votes. >> if she does talk and very effective, right. this is a jump ball. she is very effective then it's going to be a jump ball. then senator collins and senator murkowski of alaska, you know, and a few other republican senators may decide to vote no. and if that's the case, then we have a big problem. it's hard to say. she may have holes in her story. she may not recall the events that were understandably she may not know where she was at those type of things could sink her testimony as well. ainsley: she is being from what i'm reading from articles dr. ford is being prepped by the same person that prepared anita hill. do you know more about that? >> you know, the delay tactics, the demand, putting out demands on the testimony, having a political aid from obama and clinton years that just smacks of politics.
3:28 am
that's the big mistake on her part. she should just be confident, come forward, present her testimony and let the senate hear it instead you get this delay tactics and that puts a scent of politics around the whole thing. ed: last scenario we heard yesterday sheldon whitehouse the senator from rhode island who has been very aggressive in his questioning of judge kavanaugh in the judiciary committee as saying even if the witness, dr. ford, ends up not being effective and kavanaugh is very effective and gets confirmed, senator whitehouse is saying if the democrats take the house and maybe the senate, they will investigate justice kavanaugh. they will launch investigations so this resist movement will continue once he is on the high court. >> that doesn't make any sense to me. because he will be confirmed. supreme court justice. he will be a giant waste of time. you can't get rid of a supreme court justice. you can investigate all you want, but, what's that going to do? i think it's just rhetoric

3:47 am
the election, they are all telling me we are getting our wall the way we want it. so let's see what happens. we could knock that wall out in one year if they gave us the funds u. ed: here to react "fox & friends weekend" co-host pete hegseth. 8 hours together all weekend. we keep hearing the money is going to come. the money is going to come. if republicans lose the house in november, isn't it going to be harder to get that money. >> convenient excuse. we wanted that wall and deliver that wall now the democrats control the house well they want to open the border up to everybody. you can tell the president's instinct here. he wants the fight and dig. in he hears the crowd. the wall is the signature issue that motivates his a number one immigration. it's what got him where he is. and to punt beyond the midterm is a clear risk. never been a priority for establishment republicans and never been a priority for republican leadership. mitch mcconnell and paul ryan have other priorities.
3:48 am
this is the president's priority in my opinion now would be the time to dig in and fight to galvanize your base. i understand he has made agreement with him but big roll of the dies when you ask one of the establishment republicans the leadership, they will go absolutely. we are behind the president on border security. >> border security. always traditional politician absolutely after the election we will do exactly and then we will never do it because the interest that fund us don't want us to fund it corporate interest and others that are interested in an open border. it is always fence or border cuter or surveillance or tightening the security on the border. never the wall. the folks who voted nor this president want a wall it can be built. the prototypes are real. all have you got to do is fund it. $25 billion is like a rounding error.

4:03 am
he has to hear what the charges are. this is a demand clearly not work being. being put there because i think they know nobody will agree to that. ainsley: a stunt? steve: no, we can't do that then she will say look, i'm not coming. >> i tried. no you didn't try. judge kavanaugh cannot possibly go first. is he being accused. second, the fbi demands for an investigation is outrageous. did i background with the secret service for the federal government. i did them. no one is going to tell me how they work. they cannot. i cannot be clearer on this and the democrats know this. they are not criminal backgrounds. they are criminal history background. there is a difference. in other words, if a character background. i want to make sure, ed, if you were applying to be a secret service agent or a judge you haven't been arrested so we know what your character is. i do not do criminal investigation. if your neighbor says hey ed did this when he was 16 and may have been criminal. the best the secret service or the fbi will do is refer to the local authorities. ed: not going to go to chevy chase, maryland and interview. >> absolutely not.
4:04 am
100 percent no. this is what bothers me. the senate democrats know that. that's the reason they say we demand an fbi criminal investigation knowing they will never do it. ainsley: what is happening locally? is there an investigation going on where this allegedly took place? >> ainsley from, a former criminal investigator's perspective, there is really not much to investigate here. we have a charge that's missing detail. again, this is very serious. i'm not trying to down play the gravity of miss ford's charges. the problem with it there are no details. what are you going to investigate? we don't have a location. we have two people there denying knowing anything about it at all. there is nothing to investigate. ed: what do you think of her legal team trying to dictate the terms saying lawyers can't ask me questions? the senate judiciary committee if they bring anybody in they would typically have their counsel do. this also kavanaugh cannot be in the room at the same time as dr. ford, she claims. and kavanaugh, as you noted earlier should be questioned first. first of all, he can't be in the room, shouldn't he be
4:05 am
allowed to be in the room to hear what she has to say. >> one of the basic tenets of the constitutional republic is the ability to confront your accuser. listen, everybody at the curvey couch here, granted, it's uncomfortable to have to do it. that's the essence of a constitutional republic in a society we presume people innocent. you have the ability to confront you your accuser. nobody is denying it's not an uncomfortable situation. have a society everybody has the right to be believed. granted, does that mean that the being accused doesn't have a right to defend themselves, too? is that seems utterly absurd. steve: the president of the united states has made it very clear over the last week that he would like to hear her story. he was out in las vegas yesterday. and he clearly would like to see mr. kavanaugh confirmed. watch. >> i think it's a very sad situation. he is an outstanding person. frankly, sean, to see what's going on is just very, very sad. you say why didn't somebody call the fbi 36 years ago?
4:06 am
i mean, you could also say when did this all happen? what's going on? to take a man like this and besmirch -- now, with that being said, let her have her say and see how it all works out. i don't think you can delay it any longer. they have delayed it a week already. and. >> you have been very accommodating. >> i have been accommodating. i say let her say what she has to say. let's see how it all comes out. but they have delayed it a week. and they have to get on with it. steve: get on with it politico has a time line of all of the court's events and very clear she wrote a letter to dianne feinstein she got it -- feinstein got it at the end of july. then early in august, ford realized, you know what? it's probably going to be confirmed. i want to stay quiet, i don't want my name to come out. but then, feinstein at the 11th hour shared her letter, parts of it, a redacted
4:07 am
version with democrats. and next thing you know her name is leaked out and now here she is. >> steve, they have had this information since july. i have to tell you having been in the conservative activist space for a long time. i have not seen conservatives fired up about an issue since obamacare as they are about this. i would caution the majority leader and senator grassley, listen, i wasn't -- i lost my election. they won. but, delaying this thing any further is not going to go over well with the base. they feel like this was a stall particular particular. tactic. they should have been presented right away. they leaked by the democrats. the republicans still have not seen the initial letter. this is grossly unfair and mr. kavanaugh is entitled to defend himself. i think if they delay this thing after monday it's going to be a disaster. ainsley: doesn't that blow your mind the republicans haven't seen the letter? they are asking for the unredacted version. why wouldn't that they hand that over? we already know her name and claim. >> it is the simplest of requests. can we please see the letter. ainsley: what's in the letter that they don't want
4:08 am
republicans to see. >> that's the great mystery. senator feinstein, unfortunately has a his industrial of doing some of these underhanded tactics. they had the letter for a long time. already spoken to the "the washington post." steve: according to politico. she hasn't even shown the democrats who wanted to see it so there is something aside from her name in there that it appears that she does not want. >> this is why i am telling you they are creating a bunch of insurmountable obstacles so they delay this indeterindeterminably. sheldon whitehouse is saying senator from rhode island, if he gets through democrats may investigate him and may even try to impeach him, watch. >> even if they were to ram this guy through. as soon as democrats get gavels we will want to get to the bottom of this. you can't ignore a crime victim's claim that something happened, refuse to investigate, throw her up into the stand without the least bit of support for her, without the least bit
4:09 am
of effort to corroborate what she says and then walk away from that as if you have behaved at all properly. ed: democrats want to investigate this beyond the election. when he says a crime victim. it's not clear there was a crime here. >> there was never crime ever reported. almost as if the democrats had forgot that there is these things called police departments. i don't believe there is a statute of limitations on felony sex crimes in maryland where this is alleged to have happened. but, think about it. why hasn't a police report been filed? these are serious questions. these are serious charges. there is a police department available to do this now. you ask me how long would the investigation take if they did one? a day or two. there is nothing to do. there is no forensic evidence at the scene. there is not a scene. a couple interviews people there deny it happened. steve: nobody knows what house it was. >> see joy behar throwing out nonsense take a lie detector. it's a polygraph. nothing detects lies. for what?
4:10 am
he says he wasn't at the party. ed: why did senator feinstein. keep the name confidential. give it to the fbi and the police safe maybe this should be investigated. >> only three scenarios it happened and it wasn't kavanaugh. it happened and it was kavanaugh or didn't happen at all. only one of those three things. man is entitled to defend himself. if this didn't happen, you have to ask yourself how many lie lives are they going to destroy. it's unbelievable. steve: he will be there monday but her attorney says that's too soon. we will find out what happens today. every day something new. ainsley: new medicine lines this morning. a heart broken mother says her daughter fought to the last minute after being stabbed seven times after being jokd. surveillance video shows wendy martinez final moments of life. jillian mele spoke with her mother who says she is ready to forgive. >> personal, i have a child

i think the problem here is that the democrats aren't really interested to getting to the bottom of what did or did not happen 36 years ago. this is all about the delaying a vote until we can hold the midterm elections and see if they can win back the senate and vote down through confirmation. this is not about finding out the truth. the truth is a secondary concern at best for democrats. steve: do you see parallels between what is going on right now and what happened with clarence thomas back in the day? >> everything from the timing of the allegation. steve: at the very end. >> airing right before a vote was to be held hill was clarence thomas' sole accuser. to this day no one else has come out with allegations. witnesses to what hill alleged happened no witnesses have come forward. abortion was the overriding concern of the hearing before the sexual harassment
4:19 am
claims surfaced against hill. all kinds of parallels going on. truth, what actually occurred was a secondary concern. to this day, none of those allegations have been proven. that has not stopped hill from going on to become the feminist icon based on things never proven to have happened. steve: what is curious and people have observed this. if the allegations were so explosive, when dianne feinstein got the letter back in july, why didn't she just take it and say during the hearing in kavanaugh, look at this. >> right there. were ample opportunities for democrats who have had this, like you said since july had this information. they could have discussed it with kavanaugh in private meetings they could have aired this or could have done this under oath when he was testifying during the hearing. they didn't do that they found the service because i believe they were waiting for the best moment to drop it and do the most political damage. i think this was a calculated effort. >> look in your crystal ball. what happens next week? >> i hope the republican
4:20 am
goes forward. steve: on monday? >> on monday. whether or not she testifies, i hope they go forward as soon as possible. first, they said she had a right to be heard. republicans schedule a hearing and now they are saying she is being bullied into testifying. i don't think they can have it both ways. she may well believe what she is saying. but it doesn't mean the rest of us should automatically believe it. memories fade. they fade over time. 36 years ago is a long time. idea if she is able to take down supreme court nominee based on an allegation from that long ago that was no corroborating evidence, no witnesses. i think it's a horrible, horrible precedent. steve: read his column in the "wall street journal," jason, thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: meanwhile, trying to unseat texas senator ted cruz. here is how he feels about the police.

4:34 am
questions. he has to get up and respond and be cross-examined with probing questions. and i do agree with her that they ought to bring in any possible witness judge or anybody else subpoena or otherwise. background checks. now we have people, rachel maddow some of my colleagues saying he ought to be criminally prosecuted and go to jail and even if he is confirmed there ought to be a criminal investigation and he ought to be impeached. ainsley: this is what is he talking about. listen to rachel maddow. >> there is no statute of limitations for a felony like this in maryland. the reason they have not yet opened a criminal investigation of this matter is because they have not received a criminal complaint. i don't know if it will always be that way. if dr. ford ever wanted to pursue it this way, then she could, at any point, make that criminal complaint. such a complaint could start a criminal investigation, conceivably of a sitting supreme court justice for felony attempted rape. there is no rule against
4:35 am
indict ago supreme court justice. ainsley: she does explain if he makes it through the confirmation process he should be removed from the bench and thrown in jail for assault. should that happen. >> theoretically it's never happened in the history of the united states or any anglo american legal system. person prosecuted 35 years evidence. >> there is no evidence whatsoever of attempted rape. attempted rape under maryland law requires a specific intent to use this word penetrate. there has to be that specific intent. here the allegation is groping, touching, fond ling. maybe trying to remove clothing. he has an opportunity obviously to deny that he has categorically denied it what's the most disturbing thing is these people who are on television. some people i know and respect, i believe her. have you ever met her? you don't know anything about her. ed: has not even gone under oath. >> are women born with a

special gene for telling the truth and men with a special gene for lying? i don't believe her. i don't believe him. i have an open mind. i want to hear both sides of the story. and make a determination that's what the american system of justice is all about. steve: what do you make, professor, of the fact that chuck grassley, who heads up that committee has asked dianne feinstein got that letter from her back in july said, i want an unredacted copy. i want to see what she said to you in the letter. and so far she is refusing to release it. >> not only refusing to release it to him and the other democrats on the committee. there is no reason why it shouldn't be released. she is coming forward she has produced her name to the "the washington post." you can't on the one hand make the most serious accusation anybody can be accused of and say no, i have privacy. i will tell you part of the truth but not the whole truth. that's unacceptable. everything is now a matter of disclosure whether it's
4:37 am
disclosed publicly or privately. it doesn't matter. may be things in the letters privacy. okay. let it be seen by senators under a seal. ed: meanwhile an allegation against a sitting member of congress number two at the democratic national committee keith ellison by a woman who has been on the record for some time a lot more recent than 36 years ago. you don't seem to hear a lot of democrats. >> she has produced documentation about what she said before she made the accusation. it could come forward with fee could come forward with the videotapes she claims exist. one rule single standard for democrats and republicans. you can't have rachel maddow and other people on television applying one standard to kavanaugh and another standard to a man who was the deputy director of the democratic national committee and now is poised to become the attorney general. the chief law enforcement officer of minnesota. you have to have the shoe on the other foot test has to be passed. what you are saying about somebody who is a republican, you must have to say about somebody who is a democrat.
4:38 am
you have to have equal justice in this country. steve: you are supposed to but it doesn't always work out that way. >> it doesn't work out that wait a minute i'm here to put pressure to make sure it works out that way. i don't care whether democrats or republicans are hurt. somebody i voted for is hurt. a single standard of judgment. if you don't have the single standard of justice, you are in the world of stalin who said to stalin show me the man and i will find you the crime. we are now trying to criminalize the confirmation process and put people in jail. people are not going to want to serve the country if they have to go through. this look, there is no excuse for any shower. at any age ever under any circumstances. but you can't just presume it's true without full opportunity to cross-examine the accuser and a full opportunity for the accused after he is accused to take the witness stand and testify. ainsley: senators are not going to agree to her terms. yes or no. do you think she will end up speaking out? >> i think she will.

i think if she doesn't, cifers process will proceed. i think she will. i think the american public benefits from hearing all sides of this. and confirming or not confirming somebody based on evidence, not genetic belief in the inferiority or superiority of one gender. steve: we all want to hear her tell her story. alan dershowitz, thank you. >> thank you, professor. turning now to more headlines, a police department police department. >> this is the story of murderrier and fugitive peter chadwick. a man who left those two boys all alone and waiting at the bus stop. >> the newport beach police department in california releasing the six part series called countdown to capture. looks at the case of millionaire fugitive peter chadwick accused of killing his wife in 2012. police say he could be anywhere. a teacher is accused of turning a preschool into a fight club.

5:03 am
and brett kavanaugh has to testify first. what do you think? >> happy birthday. remember when james carville said it's the economy, stupid? in this case it is abortion rights, stupid. this is all about abortion. this is the epic battle between the forces of pro-choice versus pro-life. both sides will do whatever is necessary, whatever is legally possible to delay or get their person on the high court. i have no doubt before i get to the specific question about the conditions being imposed by the witness, i have no doubt but that dianne feinstein's holding of the letter from the accuser was part of the strategy to delay the confirmation of brett kavanaugh as long as they could,
5:04 am
hopefully past the midterm election on the slim chance that democrats will recapture control of the senate and therefore scuttle brett kavanaugh's ascension to the high court. this was not accidental. i have been around the block too many times. this was a conspiracy, whether dianne feinstein confided with other democrats i have no idea but i have absolutely certain that this was part of a process to delay the confirmation of brett kavanaugh. it is similar, maybe not technically but strategically, to how mitch mcconnell kept merit garland from being confirmed to the high court because he was a pro-choice guy. brett kavanaugh is a pro-life guy and this is what it is about. i use the word again, part of the epic battle that has rent asunder the american republic. you don't need a presidential
5:05 am
election to push a button, pro-life pro-choice, that turns out to be the result of a election. it is the most of tissue, the most volatile issue, the most unavoidable issue and no compromise on it. ed: doctor christine ford told her story through the washington post, it was very clear that after she wrote the letter to diane feinstein which she would not release unredacted, there were things that were not included, christine ford did not wondered her name out there. in august she realized he was going to be, justice. i will go quiet, don't want my name out there but dianne feinstein according to the politico timeline showed everybody, told everybody on the democrat side about user.
5:06 am
next to you know her name is released and now she is famous. >> she is famous or embattled, depending how you see her and how you measure her sincerity but my take on it is she is a warrior in this epic war that is going on. she's the latest person, she is like the last bastion for the pro-choice people, the last hope they have of derailing brett kavanaugh's nomination. last week she staggered brett kavanaugh. he was sailing to his confirmation. it seemed almost a matter of days before the judiciary committee would have passed on with approval his nomination to the full senate and they would have voted and the composition of the senate, he would have been confirmed if not easily it would have been a close vote but would have happened. look what she has done.
5:07 am
she gummed up the works. she's not going to testify monday. she will get around to it. the issue going back to ainsley's question about the tactics and the conditions she is imposing, i believe that once the committee agrees to her conditions, whatever they are, there will be other conditions. their mo now will be to delay, to upset your, to make this is about sex assault and me too and how can you elevate this man to the high court. clarence thomas with the pubic care and the coke can, he made it to the high court but was so beat up by the time he got there, he was so embittered that he sits on the court today never uttering award - a word. he was so scarred by the
5:08 am
confirmation process, you go to the high court and he doesn't say a word. he may mumble something to one of his colleagues off mike. i believe that was because of the egregious nature of the attacks on him during anita hill's testimony. pete: the moving of the goalpost, doctor ford needed to be heard, then she doesn't need to be heard just yet, have an fbi investigation, the president is frustrated by the moving of the goalposts and caught up with sean hannity in las vegas and here's what he said. >> i think it is a sad situation. he is an outstanding person and to see what is going on is very sad. you say why didn't somebody call the fbi 36 years ago? you can also say when did this happen? what is going on? take a man like this, with that
5:09 am
being said, let her have her say and see how it works out but i don't think you can delay it any longer. they delayed it a week already. >> you have been accommodating. >> i've been accommodating, let her say what she has to say and let's see how it comes out but they delayed it a week and they have to get on with it. ed: rachel maddow saying he should be charged criminally when we don't know the facts of the case. >> i will say this, those who made the argument there is still a criminal case to be pursued and investigated. there is no way on god's green earth that there are any criminal charges to be leveled against brett kavanaugh who is over 30 years ago, the statute of limitations particularly when it came to juveniles would make any criminal prosecution impossible. the only thing they could
5:10 am
possibly do and it would be a longshot would be to get brett kavanaugh tricked up where you said this under oath and that is not what happened here. go back, they will do whatever they can to slow down this process. they are betting against hope against hope that the midterm elections will turn out there way changing the composition and divide, it was great seeing my two powers sean hannity and donald trump in the friendly confines of vegas. both of them get beat up by opposing forces. the president makes a good point. he has been measured. i was so afraid he would be tempestuous as he sometimes is or thin-skinned and lash out at dianne feinstein. leave that to other people. like me. remember our old boss roger

ailes used to say the only thing in the middle of the road is roadkill. i'm in the middle-of-the-road. i pro-choice, but i look at john, one of my best friends, he is as sincere as i. this is a big big deal, the brett kavanaugh nomination. if he goes to the high court, it is a 5-for automatic decision to attack roe versus wade, that is what the fear was, all those ladies with the pink hats the day after inauguration, america's real civil war, talk about immigration, gay marriage, gun rights, this is what it boils down to and i believe democrats are there hail mary to stop the brett kavanaugh nomination. no doubt he's a qualified jurist however i may disagree with him

trying on wedding dresses with her mom and it is now the dress they are going to bury her in. we spoke to the family a candle light vigil last night. what are your words about that man? >> it is awful. i would be more mad if there was an actual motive behind it but i know wendy was in her happiest moment in the weeks before it happened, just got engaged to the love of her life. we were here last thursday to celebrate, left on monday. >> without any more information it appears to be random. to have a young woman in the prime of her life doing what a lot of people do on a daily basis, exercising, something she loved to do. for her to lose her life is very scary. >> talk about important of police officers on their beat
5:26 am
recognizing individuals in the community, recognizing their habits and behavior because that helps in this situation. >> officers in the third district look at that video and have a sense who that person was. even now the area where he might be -- the people who provide tips in this case are a linchpin to get quick closure. >> on tuesday she was happy. she was listening to her favorite song, a favorite activity. >> your pain is so -- how do you get through this? >> i in pain. i am in pain. my heart doesn't have room for hate because ima christian. wendy was a child of god.
5:27 am
we just know that our strength is coming from him and not anywhere else. god heals. i didn't know, i just let it go. >> a beautiful and strong family. the 23 mac suspect had a history of using the synthetic form of marijuana. police have not confirmed whether that played a role in what they call a random attack. he does have a criminal history but nothing that helps explain why he did this. ainsley: i live in washington, logan circle is known in recent years as a tough neighborhood, a lot of crime and in recent years it has become all kinds of businesses sprouting up, condos, young people live there a mile or so from the white house. >> a lot of people were out and about between 6:00 and 8:00, seem to be a lot of something --
5:28 am
thirtysomethings, professionals on their way home from work. you can see her with ted williams walking around the neighborhood near where that happens. he has been a homicide detective in dc for 40 years and he said it is safe in that area now, a neighborhood in transition as you mentioned. parts of it up and coming but there were a lot of people out there last night at restaurants, people on their bikes, it is a very active neighborhood. ainsley: that surveillance video after she was stabbed, she ran into a restaurant, you see people watch her come in and they run out. >> reporter: we spoke to folks who work at that restaurant and we were able to see the surveillance video. it is too graphic to show but
5:29 am
where it is blurred out there were a couple people at the time shortly after two men ran out, two men ran back -- trying this really to help her. it was hard to watch. ed: thank you for going to washington. ainsley: she was stabbed twee 7 times, too many times to save her life. pete: how does this deal found? go to college now, play later. one qualification, you have got to be a dreamer. democrats have a backup plan if brett kavanaugh makes the supreme court bench. keep investigating him. kimberly stossel on deck next. see a little blood when you brush or floss? you may have gum disease and could be on a journey to much worse. try parodontax toothpaste. it's three times more effective at removing plaque, the main cause of bleeding gums.

leave bleeding gums behind with parodontax toothpaste. leave bleeding gums behind if you're waiting patiently for a liver transplant, it could cost you your life. it's time to get out of line with upmc. at upmc, living-donor transplants put you first. so you don't die waiting. upmc does more living-donor liver transplants than any other center in the nation.
5:31 am
find out more and get out of line today. mike and jen doyle? yeah. time for medicare, huh. i have no idea how we're going to get through this. follow me. choosing a plan can be super-complicated. but it doesn't have to be. unitedhealthcare can guide you through the confusion, with helpful people, tools and plans. including the only plans with the aarp name. well that wasn't so bad at all. that's how we like it. aarp medicare plans, from unitedhealthcare.

5:33 am
pete: political left ramping up against brett kavanaugh. and keep going after him even if he makes it. listen to this. >> even if they were to ram this guy through, as soon as democrats get gavels we will want to get to the bottom of this. >> you can't ignore crime victim's claim that something happened, refused to investigate, throw her up into the sand without police that of support for her, without the least bit of effort to corroborate what she said and walk away from that is if you behave that all properly. pete: sheldon whitehouse, promising to investigate brett kavanaugh if democrats win the senate. and laying out the case for impeachment if he makes it to the high court.
5:34 am
good morning. what is your sense? democrats i think we want to delay delay delay, try to stop him and if that doesn't work we are still going to try to stop him, impeach him if he is on the high court. >> this is an extra ordinary new precedent. they are ready managed to do some damage, much as they did to clarence thomas. even these allegations they assume if brett kavanaugh makes it to the high court, they will suggest any ruling they don't like are illegitimate because of the claims made against him. now we are hearing if they take the house and senate we will have continuing investigations even to a sitting supreme court judge and they will potentially -- they will be under pressure to do this from their activist base, go so far as to engage in impeachment proceedings. how can anybody function on a high court living under a cloud like that? not so much a threat as a
5:35 am
promise to his base. ainsley: diane feinstein learned about this in july. she brings it up a few days before the confirmation is to take place and she said i will not speak until next week. they want her to talk on monday and she says i might talk thursday. she says brett kavanaugh has to speak first even though her attorneys know that will never happen. i think she might accuse me, that is what i am hearing, let me defend myself before she talks. it is another delay. isn't it obvious what is happening here? >> without reference to the accuser there is no question senate democrats, the way this is handled, and outright political ambush. it was done in attempt to derail the nomination and they succeeded in throwing the whole thing up in the air. miss ford has been tough because
5:36 am
people have extended their hand to her for an interview anytime, anyplace of your choosing, whatever makes you comfortable. these demands make people wonder what is behind this. is there politics at play beyond her accusations. republicans have an obligation. brett kavanaugh deserves for treatment too. to be led along with unlimited and unknowable amount of time and continue to have the media trashes character and reputation without a chance to defend himself is inappropriate. the senate owes something more than this and they need to move on this with due deference to her and her opportunity to speak but there have to be some rules. when you are the one accused you don't speak first. pete: one of the other things, what exactly was in the letter that she wrote to diane feinstein? she gave a copy that was
5:37 am
rejected to the fbi but even her own senate democrats would like to see it but she won't release it. chuck grassley says we are going to prepare for this hearing we have to see it. so far she has stonewalled. >> there's a great deal of we don't know. that is an irony given what we heard from democrats nonstop since allegations surfaced that we need more transparency, fbi investigation, we need to know the facts. and fbi desiccation is not appropriate, it is not what the fbi does. they do background interviews, put things in files. the senate has the opportunity to do those interviews but the argument is this should be out there, obviously she has a duty to turn that letter so people can see what was in the first allegation. ed: can see in the background,

powerful job in the world, like he has this much time you can comment on me. the president tweeted about james slamming his interview with cnn's don lemon. those are your headlines. pete: james dean has a bunch of folks who hope it don't rain. >> reporter: look at this. pilots love "fox and friends". we love it. do we have birthdays, celebrations, birthday right here? you look amazing. what is the secret? i love it. birthday over here. >> 36th anniversary. >> what is your secret? >> i love her. >> over there, i remember 35. what a great crowd. can you come back every single day? it is a beautiful day in new york city, 67 cloudy, it is not going to rain, we have a cold front that will move through the great lakes and bring potential for severe weather so be aware of that.

pete: quick headlines. overwhelming majority of amazon employees appear to support the democratic party. a new study reveals since 2006,
5:45 am
90% of amazon workers contributions went to democratic packs, only 10% went to republicans. amazon employees donated $611 in 2004. it could be the internet divided by 2028. the next 10 years google's former ceo says one version could go by the united states and the other by china. eric schmidt says china has so much control over censorship of its citizens the country could run its own version of google and the web. pete: christine ford laying out the terms. >> is willing to part of senate judiciary committee as long as no lawyers are questioning her. brett cavanagh can't be in the room and he has to be questioned first. >> constitutional law professor at george washington university,
5:46 am
what do you make of the last one. brett kavanaugh should be questions first. isn't that exactly backwards? >> it is. this notion of you swing, then we pitch, is a ridiculous way of doing this. she is accusing him of wrongdoing, you want to see what those allegations amounts to under oath and testimony and he has to answer for it. democrats are overplaying their hand. they have some legitimate objections, don't want her to testify at the same table as brett kavanaugh. i get that, everyone does but there comes a point when reasonable objections become efforts to manipulate and this is one of them. there is no good-faith reason -- pete: democrats may be overplaying their hand but are they also playing politics, looking at the midterm saying republicans are going to blink because they don't want to make
5:47 am
it look like they are pushing too hard against a woman, 11 republican males on the judiciary committee and that may backfire. >> that is why there is this idea they will bring in a female lawyer who will question her. republican senators do not want the optics of an all-male bench of gop senators questioning the alleged victim. that will present a serious problem for her because that type of attorney will press harder. the optics will not be as jarring for her to ask tough questions. >> the washington post, a guy down there looked at what she said so far it is trying to put together, this whole suggestion on the confirmation hearing, trying to figure out -- it could be a case of mistaken identity because another guy lived there who looked just like him, that
5:48 am
could be a pillar of the defense. maybe she has mistakenly for somebody else but she says or her lawyers there is 0 chance of that. >> i have done polygraph cases in the past and people can have false memories. they can associate with a particular name. the actual assault could well have occurred but she associates the name with a different actor at a person can pass a polygraph. there are a lot of details would have to be laid out. there is no way to do this in a way that won't make everyone feel uncomfortable. there two people here who have to be questioned. they must be respectful but that doesn't mean you don't ask those questions. these are serious allegations in both parties have a right to be heard, not necessarily to be believed. >> how will this unfold? what are your predictions? >> right now i think brett kavanaugh has a better chance of getting through this.
5:49 am
it depends how this testimony unfolds. both of these individuals will be under bright lights and it is hard to tell until we see how they perform. in approaching the election, a significant factor. he does not have the margin to lose even one senator. this is a very tough thing for him to get through. having said that, i think the republicans on the hill believe they can get him through. ed: appreciate you coming in. regarding the mistaken identity possibility, 0 chance. the best video you will see all day. a fire breaks out in an apartment complex and marines do what they do best, spring into action running several blocks to save dozens of lives.
