12:00 am
>> this game show is called guess what's in my pants. i stuck something in my pants and you are allowed to feel around on the outside of the pants, you have 10 seconds to then guess what is in my pants. ready? >> set. >> go. >> at least we know what jimmy's favorite clothing line is. you get the joke? that is all-time we have to night. shannon bream and the fox news at night team takes it from here. shannon: friday the senate judiciary committee, time to call for a vote on brett cavanagh, one day after he and his accuser are set to testify in front of the senate and the world, all angles covered tonight. the federalist society cofounder david mcintosh and molly hemingway way in. the un blasted donald trump in a
12:01 am
speech where he rejects their ideology, the international reaction a badge of honor for the president. bill cosby is behind bars. a lingering question, why did it take so long to put him there for sexual assault that was more than a decade ago. welcome to fox news at night. after democrats insisted doctor christine blasey-ford ford tell her story, democrats are calling for another delay to thursday's planned hearing and say they are not sure she is going to show up. news that a sex crime prosecutor is the top gop choice to question brett kavanaugh's accuser. and henry is following it all. >> reporter: dianne feinstein cannot guarantee doctor ford is going to show up with outside
12:02 am
counsel is going to ask the question plus an attorney for the second accuser against brett kavanaugh deborah ramirez revealed she will not testify at all is republicans push back on feinstein that the hearing be delayed, chuck grassley said the hearing is on for thursday and they may vote on the nomination as soon as friday. the legal team rejected to republicans hiring the special lawyer writing it is inconsistent with doctor ford's repeated request, this is not a criminal trial, involvement of experienced sex crime prosecutor would be appropriate. we confirmed the lawyer named is rachel mitchell. the republicans will have her ask the questions thursday. she runs the sex crimes bureau in phoenix and she is known as
12:03 am
questions and looking like they were bullying her shortly before the midterms, donald trump stood behind brett kavanaugh. >> they are con artists. they don't believe it themselves. her lawyer says she would rather corroborate with the fbi. attorney michael avenatti's promise last night, he has a third accuser. >> i do not traffic in rumor and nonsense. i state facts and i have evidence to back it up. >> one client i can describe as a witness and victim as well as
12:04 am
additional corroborating witnesses to what she is going to allege publicly in the next 48 hours. >> reporter: avenatti says it might be another 36 hours or so after reports he had been scammed by an online forum that recently took his active public twitter account private. he established because of online threats from trump supporters who say it is completely false he was duped saying let me be clear, we disclose an accusation only when she is ready. we have adequate security measures in place, not a moment before. it is her choice, hers alone, her life. we expect it in the next 36 hours. that would run against thursday's here and grassley says there could be a committee vote as soon as friday. republican leaders hope to get an up or down vote over brett kavanaugh's nomination a week from tonight next tuesday. >> tomorrow night will be
12:05 am
interesting, thank you so much. on the heels of criticism for gop is getting one over in the confirmation process chuck grassley has drawn a line in the sand, if the committee is ready, a vote on friday. a vote on brett cavanagh next week. let's bring in a spokesperson for the kavanaugh confirmation, i want to play something the president had to say about the second accuser who came forward to talk about brett kavanaugh. here is what he said. >> she said she was totally inebriated. it was all messed up. might have been him. let's not make him a supreme court justice. >> a couple of women's groups, planned parenthood, statements like this from the president of the united states are dangerous and irresponsible, donald trump's attacks are disgusting and cowardly.
12:06 am
he has been very disciplined talking about these accuses. now he is more forceful in what he had to say. >> i'm a little confused because those statements are from this ramirez herself, she was so inebriated she was lying on florida fargo blurring her words, six days working with attorneys to even remember this alleged incident. she admits there were significant gaps in the story. the new york times reported miss ramirez was calling to see if they remembered the incident and the new york times refused to run the story because they, quote, called dozens of people to attempt to corroborate the story unlike the new yorker and they weren't able to do it. the new york times, donald trump was just repeating what miss ramirez said about herself. >> what about calls for the white house to do an
12:07 am
investigation of people reporting to the bush white house in the anita hill clarence thomas hearings that they asked for a hearing. the washington post had a piece that brett cavanagh might benefit from an fbi investigation. without one he will always have a cloud over his head. he could benefit and clear his own name with an independent body like the fbi looking into this. will white house chief's position on this? >> i would like to quote joe biden in 1991 where he forcefully told clarence thomas, supreme court nominee, that fbi clearances, background checks are not conclusive. they present what he says, what she said and that is it and that is what the fbi has done. they conducted 6 investigations, 6 background checks on brett kavanaugh since 1993 covering
12:08 am
his time at yale, his allegation never emerged and the senate judiciary committee is doing their job, holding this hearing, they want to get to the bottom of this, the american people what to get to the bottom of this and brett kavanaugh has repeatedly stated is anxious to clear his name which is why he did an interview just today with the senate judiciary committee under oath under subjective criminal penalties, and did not do what miss ramirez alleged he did. >> and an interview with martha maccallum. in the west wing, to present an image to counter the allegations yet they remain concerned around aids, brett kavanaugh appeared shaken during the interview, would hold up facing fiercer questioning from senate democrats. we imagine it will get feisty. any take aways from thursday.
12:09 am
>> many people from across the country who came out on his behalf, were close to 100 women who personally know brett kavanaugh spoke to his treatment of women, this included high school girlfriends, former staff, former colleagues, so many letters to the senate judiciary committee from these women and so many others. this is a man loved by so many, impeccable credentials, incredible reputation and i can't think of a more qualified human being to be on the supreme court justice. shannon: the public will get a look at him and doctor ford thursday. the democrats expressed concern she may not. thank you very much. republicans facing pressure from the gop base to refuse any more delays and get brett cavanagh
12:10 am
confirmed. as republicans and democrats are facing pressure to block the nominee. where does it stand tonight? capital hill producer chad program. >> reporter: the math is the math is the math. the senate is 51-49. everyone counts. republicans can only lose one vote and still expect to win. let's start with the democrats. look at moderates from battleground states in competitive races. the accusations against brett kavanaugh make this vote tougher for these democrats. joe manchin is a good one to examine, one of 3 democrats who voted for neil gorsuch, reminds everyone these are allegations against brett kavanaugh. he is looking for clarity from both sides. there are six republicans right now, swingset or the nurse -- senators. lisa murkowski said it is not
12:11 am
whether he is qualified but whether or not a woman who has been a victim at some point in her life is to be believed. then there is susan collins of maine hookups close counsel the past couple days. jeff flake, republican from arizona, the judiciary committee, and bob corker, republican of tennessee who goes, quote, into the hearings with positive feelings and i hope thursday goes well. corker had reservations about the tax reform bill last year and the deficits and then flipped to i and then against the spending bill because of deficits. here's the time it takes, five days to move the nomination to a final vote. the committee is scheduled to vote at 9:30 on friday. mitch mcconnell use the weekends to tee up a vote for the filibuster. if mcconnell starts the process saturday, on monday a vote to end debate. senators vote to break the filibuster, opponent of the
12:12 am
nomination have 30 hours to make a final stand against brett kavanaugh. the confirmation vote tuesday night or wednesday. shannon: there will be twists and turns. christine blasey-ford's lawyer objecting to a female sex crimes prosecutor to question her client thursday. terry fleischer tweeting his reaction, the reason professor ford's lawyers don't want an outside lawyer to ask questions is they don't want a woman to be the questioner. they prefer the optics of all-male questioners which is how politically calculating her out lawyers are. molly hemingway, director of political communications for planned parenthood, erica sack and and david mcintosh to talk about the political side of the confirmation battle. welcome to all of you. in a letter from her attorney she said this. there is no precedent for this committee to bring in outside counsel for the sole purpose of shielding members of the committee from performing their
12:13 am
responsibility to question. are they farming this out to hide behind the prosecutor? >> interesting thing to raise because we were told at first it would be troubling for the witness to testify in front of a group of men and when they make arrangements to have someone else who is well-versed and how to handle this, that is also unacceptable. you have to take a step back and look at how much the committee bent over backwards to work with various witnesses to get their story told and we have seen nothing but delay and delay so you have to ask whether this was done in good faith. shannon: senate majority leader mitch mcconnell said there will be a senate floor vote on this. what he has laid out is the three point strategy, get wind of potential allegations, keep the information from the gop and leak it to the press at the last minute. is that a fair characterization? >> absolutely not. we are talking about brett kavanaugh's job interview to a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land.
12:14 am
who will decide your rights and my rights for generations. there is no reason to rush this. it is not too much to ask that we make sure we are not appointing someone to the supreme court who committed sexual assault. rushing get looks like there is something to hide. shannon: what about the fact that diane feinstein, top ranking member of the senate had a letter for weeks. people keep pointing to that and we discussed that as well. does it do a disservice to doctor ford that she held it for weeks and people say there is a rush but they wouldn't have been had this been out prior to the questioning. >> it is incredibly difficult for survivors to come forward and you can see why based on the dismissal and death threats she has reported but we are talking a lifetime appointment and there is no reason to rush, giving it a full investigation by the fbi, hearing from multiple witnesses, not just one and not scheduling a vote until after they have a
12:15 am
hearing. heather: lindsey graham had to say this about doctor ford and her role in this. >> doctor ford is being abused as much as anybody else, she said she didn't want to come forward. someone on the other side leaked her name, not us. she has been a victim of this as much as brett kavanaugh has. shannon: what you make of that? >> senator graham is right on that point. what we saw today in the new york times was the real democrat strategy revealed by a clinton political operative. first, do anything you can to delay and stop the brett kavanaugh nomination, that means dragging his name through the mud. i have been in this town a long time as a congressman, a lawyer working on other confirmations. this is the worst actor assassination i have ever seen. step 2 is to win the senate back and stop any trump nominee
12:16 am
because for them this is all about the supreme court, the issue of gun control, the issue of women's rights, the issue for them of taking over more control of the environment and the economy. this is all politics and it has to stop. we have to get back to the question the senate needs to address. as brett kavanaugh have the character and ability to be a supreme court nominee and it is very clear he does and every one of the senators on the republican side believe he didn't do this. it is clear many of the democrats don't but they are going along with the politics of character assassination. shannon: we hear from senator feinstein but she's not sure doctor ford is going to show up. the gop is in a tough spot. they have a gender when it comes to the midterm elections and what they need to win. what do you think they do if doctor ford does this thursday?
12:17 am
>> something more important than gender gaps or political issues which is how we are the country and do we think allegations are sufficient to destroy man's life. this is not just a job interview. we were told based on allegations that have not been supported by evidence or testimony under oath that this person is not just not appropriate for the supreme court but a roving monster. the idea that you wouldn't come and show up at testimony for that after the committee worked so hard so that we could hear this testimony. is there anything more to this? there's a lot of holes where we don't know where someone says something happened but she doesn't know when or where or how or have any witnesses to back up the claims, the idea we would destroy man's life cannot be the standard we use in this country and we all need to care about that, left or right, the we believe people are innocent until proven guilty and you don't have to prove guilt to destroy man's life is very dangerous. shannon: what about that?
12:18 am
it doesn't stand against 200 years of american jurisprudence that someone on the defense would have to disprove the allegations against him. >> i think they absolutely should. this isn't a criminal proceeding. nobody's entitled to a seat on the supreme court, they have to earn that. the way are rushing through this process makes it clear we are not interested in getting to the truth, we are interested in rushing through because either they are worried something else will come about or they know the nomination is in trouble. let's take the process seriously, investigate with the fbi the way we did with clarence thomas, let's hear from the other witnesses who come forward and not schedule votes until after we had a hearing. shannon: final word to you. >> those are part of the democrat plan to stall and delay and try to defeat this nomination. i talked to a good friend of mine, a feminist, we don't agree on a lot of issues but she told me she is outraged at the way diane feinstein is using doctor
12:19 am
ford. if she really cared about her she would have sent this to the committee and fbi six months ago. this is just a political play and republicans on the senate have to say enough is enough, we will make a decision. shannon: we are interested to hear from both sides on thursday. i will see you there as we cover it. thank you very much. what about abuse allegations against the top two democrats? new details and the investigation into domestic abuse allegations against the deputy chairman of democratic party. social media threatening to unseal a congressman's divorce records. what about the brett kavanaugh effect on the midterms? we will bring up the gop base, others say it fired up the progressives. does chris*walt agree with the president on this? >> just resist and obstruct. they are playing the con game and played very well, and they played better than republicans.

>> shannon: new developments tonight and the abuse allegati shannon: new development and abuse allegations against congressman keith ellison by an ex-girlfriend ms. karen monahan says the matter is not going away anytime soon. trace gallagher is on the case.
12:24 am
>> reporter: congressman ellison from minnesota is accused of violently dragging his ex-girlfriend karen monahan while screaming obscenities. this week monahan tweeted this is not going away and you are making it worse for you, your family by lying, smearing, getting others to do your dirty work. victim shaming etc.. monahan claims she has video of the violent incident but won't reveal it. and medical records showing 2017 she joined the doctor about her relationship with keith ellison. this denies the current allegations and he is confident there will be new allegations. >> don't know what somebody might cook up but there is nobody i am aware of who is threatening or suggesting or made prior accusation.
12:25 am
>> reporter: the minnesota star tribune the most widely read newspaper in the state joined the conservative publication of the news in an attempt to unseal the 2012 divorce records of ellison and his ex-wife kim ellison. the couple once the file to stay close saying, quote, our divorce simply isn't the public's business and therefore when we separated we jointly asked the course to seal the fire. one month before closely contested election for minnesota attorney general a conservative group wants to probe our divorce file in search of something to use against keith in this race. kim ellison goes on to say her ex-husband never abused her. the democratic party is investigating karen monahan's allegations but ellison's gop challenger for attorney general call that inside job. >> immigrants, national democrats, state democrats are doing an investigation but it is investigation by friends. >> reporter: this investigation passed from the national
12:26 am
democratic party to state party and no results. the state party says it is being handled by outside firm. >> reporter: thank you very much. as we march closer to the midterms the kavanaugh effect looms large, the confirmation battle came up in the first debate in the tennessee senate race. >> what is going on now with the kavanaugh nomination on the part of both parties has turned into a circus. >> if i were in the senate i would vote yes, to move brett kavanaugh forward. and to send that vote to the floor. i would vote to confirm him. shannon: editor of a halftime report is here to weigh in. good to see you tonight. tennessee, they are getting in on this and interesting you have a democratic candidate tracking to the middle. would that happen in other states?
12:27 am
>> this puts red state democrats in a difficult position because guys you heard from, popular former governor in tennessee in the same category as joe manchin and others who saw this as an opportunity to demonstrate they were bipartisan, they were going to say look at me. i am supporting, voting for, supporting this conservative judicial nominee. i think the president not to have his pick. this makes it more complicated and it is not clear when the vote will take place and not clear what latitude they have so this makes it harder for them to demonstrate some bipartisan credibility. shannon: don't know about you, hearing from a lot of folks on the right side who say they are
12:28 am
sick of the gop dragging their heels and will not move for them if they don't get brett cavanagh confirmed. here's what rush limbaugh said. >> of the republicans do not get this vote taken and have brett cavanagh confirmed you can kiss the midterms goodbye, holding the house and holding the senate. shannon: what do you think? >> after losing elections people tend to blame whatever serves their larger interests and worldview. there are a lot of reasons the republicans are more likely than not to lose the house was i don't think the senate -- it is more likely than not republicans will retain the senate. it is hard for me to understand people who would vote for a democrat that would win in order to punish republicans if the brett kavanaugh nomination would go down. and that thinking doesn't make sense. may be part of what is going on out there. >> if they supported this president, the white house,
12:29 am
senate and house on the wall, and other stuff. >> the highest numbers in 7 years, favorability at 45%. >> when times are tough, we stick together and this is a tough moment for the republican party, hard times. historic size losses. a president who is under attack constantly. and administration that is deeply embattled. they have a judicial nominee who is may be in big trouble. this is what you are seeing a rally around the flag effect is republicans come together in the face of all these threats they are facing.
12:30 am
shannon: republicans if they want to hold the senate, increase the margin at all. not great pulling numbers so they are really close. >> we have seen a big change especially in florida. a lot has to do with the red tide, a lot of blame for rick scott, the red tide helps the blue wave in florida. this race snapped and not just the quinnipiac university poll, it is out, both of them show movement against republicans in this race and most surprising is in florida gillam, the gubernatorial nominee is at two. shannon: we will watch the senate race, kiersten cinema has a bit of a lead. he has entertained millions for decades on tv, movies, concerts was now bill cosby has a new
12:31 am

shannon: a man known for making millions laugh is the focus of a very serious story tonight. bill cosby has been sentenced to between 3 and 10 years in prison for 2000 for sexual assault. rick leventhal joins us with details. >> reporter: we saw him today, most of us never imagined. a remarkable fall from the spotlight for a man who entertained on stage and tv screen for more than 50 years. comedian bill cosby who starred in a sitcom and stand up specials led from the courtroom in handcuffs later escorted out the back door of the courthouse to an unmarked police car and
12:36 am
driven off for processing into the state prison system after judge stephen o'neill sentenced the 81-year-old comedian to 3 to 10 years behind bars for his conviction on 3 count of aggravated indecent assault, for drugging and molesting andrea const and in his philadelphia home in 2004. earlier the judge ruled bill cosby is a sexually violent predator and could still be a threat and the da says the sentence is just. >> we take seriously, i will not apologize for our job. and our job is to separate the predators from the good people in our community. and that happened today. >> reporter: and your constant was in the courtroom and shared a hug with her supporters. and her victim impact statement she wrote we may never know the full extent of bill cosby's double life as a sexual predator
12:37 am
but his decades long reign of terror as a serial rapist is over. we also heard from other women who say bill cosby drugs and assaulted them too. >> all i can say is this changes the statute of limitations, we are going to get it abolished. >> reporter: bill cosby's first night behind bars was spent in a prison in suburban philadelphia and could eventually be moved to another facility for low-risk inmates outside pittsburgh. his defense says they will appeal. shannon: thank you very much. according to an internal investigation fema chief brock along, donald trump's first disaster official, cost the government $151,000 in vehicles and unauthorized travel. the reports obtained by the wall street journal says government vehicles and staff to travel to his home in north carolina and driving family around hawaii during a trip that included vacation and official functions.

is important to me so father being diagnosed with advanced non-small cell lung cancer made me think of all the things that i wanted to teach my kids. (avo) another tru story with keytruda. (roger) my doctor said i could start on keytruda so i did. with each scan things just got better. (avo) in a clinical study, keytruda offered patients a longer life than chemotherapy. and it could be your first treatment. keytruda is for adults with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread... ...who test positive for pd-l1 and whose tumors do not have an abnormal "egfr" or "alk" gene. it's the immunotherapy with the most fda-approved uses for advanced lung cancer. keytruda can cause your immune system to attack normal organs and tissues in your body and affect how they work. this can happen anytime during or after treatment and may be severe and lead to death. see your doctor right away if you experience new or worsening cough, chest pain, shortness of breath, diarrhea, severe stomach pain or tenderness, nausea or vomiting, rapid heartbeat, constipation, changes in urine, changes in eyesight, muscle pain or weakness,

(roger ) before i'd think of the stuff i might miss. but now with keytruda, we have hope. (avo) living longer is possible. it's tru. keytruda, from merck. ask your doctor about keytruda. >> shannon: in a speech ridiculed attempt by h shannon: in a speech ridiculed by his listeners and dismissed by the media donald trump unapologetically declared america's rejection of what he called the ideology of globalism. kristin fisher picks up the story. >> reporter: donald trump took his america first doctrine to the un and told every nation in
12:43 am
the room that they should adopt a similar approach for their own country. nationalism before internationalism which is the opposite of the infosys bounced by the very organization he was addressing today. >> we will never surrender america's sovereignty to an unelected unaccountable global bureaucracy. >> reporter: donald trump is used in lines like that getting applause at his rallies but today they received a different reception at the un general assembly. those in attendance laughed at him as he listed his administration's greatest abolishment. >> and less then two years my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country. [laughter] >> didn't expect that reaction but that is okay. >> reporter: his second you in speech had almost as much fire as the first, it was aimed at a different target. last year's little rocket man now gets praise from donald trump.
12:44 am
>> i would like to thank chairman kim for his courage and the steps he has taken, though much work remains to be done. >> reporter: this year he and all of his iran iran. >> we cannot allow the world at leading sponsor of terrorism to possess the planet's most dangerous weapons. >> reporter: the iranian respondent by likening donald trump to modern-day hitler. >> translator: witnessing rulers in the world fermenting extremist nationalism and racism in the november tendencies resembling the nazis. >> reporter: in addition to iran donald trump went after opec accusing them of ripping off the rest of the world. >> we defend many of these nations for nothing and they take advantage of us by giving us high oil prices. not good. >> reporter: he attacked china for unfair trade practices in venezuela for its descent into a socialist dictatorship.
12:45 am
>> virtually everywhere, where communism has been tried it has produced suffering, corruption and decay. >> reporter: one country donald trump did not attack or even mention was russia. >> reporter: they are moving to all those countries and conflicts. shannon: thank you very much. the president emphasized american sovereignty and reciprocity and diplomatic relationships so what is wrong with that? let's bring in the panel to debate, richard fowler, the president of america rising pack, welcome to you both. >> thank for having us. >> reporter: you saw the soundbites where he says things are going great for the country, we accomplished more than any other administration in the country and they laugh and he says i didn't expect that but he left along with it. he rolled with it if nothing else. >> i give him that. he rolled with the punches.
12:46 am
what was hurtful for me to watch, the global world, the developed world laughing at the united states, this is the result of the fact we have a president whose twitter fingers get him and a lot of trouble and what the un is about is how we as a world come together to maintain world peace. what we saw from him was this idea of we are separate and alone and that is not the american ideology or who we are as america. shannon: a lot of people like that, this president puts america first, all about our sovereignty answer to countries you should be into your sovereignty too, you shouldn't what people tell you what to do. he is very skeptical about the united nations as are many people who support him. is in a badge of honor, folks laughing at him? >> he handled it in a good-natured way but at the same time this plays to the president's strength especially the people who elected him in 2016, people who came out
12:47 am
because they felt less faith in the world, the obama administration dropped the ball not just on the world stage but domestically at home as well. if you look at this image and give americans the choice between the president of the united states and a lead diplomat, they will tell that. shannon: and play to his base. here is what president rouhani had to say, rulers in the world secure their interests better and talked about the november tendencies resembling a nazi disposition, the president tweets despite requests i have no plans to meet rouhani, maybe sometime in the future. i am sure he is the lovely only man. the choice of words, those two are not on the same page. >> that is part of the problem, he uses twitter diplomacy to get things done and that is not how diplomacy works in the world.
12:48 am
