3:01 am
and destruction. >> it's the politics of personal destruction. the playbook the democrats continue to use. scorched earth, resistance movement. >> they want votes and fundraisers, they are using that power to destroy people's lives. >> the american people are not going to be fooled by this political theater. ♪ i got ♪ it's all right ♪ all right ♪ pete: i would say this after this week america, let not your heart be troubled? who says that? is it rush? it's hannity. rachel: sean hannity. pete: let not your heart be troubled it's saturday morning. it's been a long week. is there is a lot to talk about. thankfully griff and rachel are here. rachel: we have a great play list all morning so we are super jazzed up right now. griff: i haven't worn a pocket square since i was on this show with rachel. i have my pocket square
3:02 am
rocking. pete: looking if he good. rachel: very dapper. i like have you taken that new fashion trend on. pete: griff and i have been talking he has some opinions, views that he might share with you on the channel today. rachel: i'm looking forward to it, too. pete: president trump as you know in the news now ordering a supplemental fbi investigation into sexual assault allegations against supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh. griff: the move pushing the senate vote to late next week. rachel: lee land vittert is live in our nation's capital with more. welcome. >> nice to see you. some of kavanaugh's supporters are spinning this as a good thing saying the mere fact of an fbi report will take away key democratic talking point making the week delay well worth it. this is the president's tweet, just started tonight our seventh fbi investigation of judge brett kavanaugh. he will some day be recognized as a truly great justice of the united states supreme court.
3:03 am
from dr. christine blasey ford's attorney a thorough fbi investigation is critical developing all the relevant facts. dr. christine blasey ford welcomes this step. no artificial limits as to time or scope should be imposed on this investigation. >> for senate majority leader mitch mcconnell another week to a vote but another week of oven relenting democratic pressure on key swing votes like susan collins and lisa murkowski. >> the committee has also thoroughly investigated the last-minute allegations that have been brought forward. the evidence that has been produced either fails, fails to crorkts these accusations or, in fact, supports judge kavanaugh's unequivocal denial. this is a nomination that deserves to move forward and that is precisely, mr. president, what is happening. >> kavanaugh says he will continue to cooperate with any and all probes into his background, guys, and obviously we wait for the president's rally this evening to see if he has any additional thoughts on the
3:04 am
week's events. rachel: thank you, lee land. pete: lee land, thanks. rachel: we thought we were moving forward, right? we thought we were moving forward except jeff flake did something that a lot of people aren't too surprised about because they think is he flakey. pete: living up to his name. he told everyone he was going to vote for the nomination. then he got in an elevator and cloak room and apparently everything changed. an activist, her name is anna marie arcella double l like a y. it's one l. all right. pete: she confronted him in an elevator as you pointed out she wasn't supposed to be in. griff: you are not allowed to go on to that elevator whether you are a reporter or protester and because of the freedoms of this great nation there is not just her there is hundreds.
3:05 am
i was there all week long. it is surreal that hundreds of protesters can just freely hang out in the hallways. and wa weigh in with their opinions that happened. pete: watch this. >> you are allowing someone who is unwilling to take responsibility for his own action. >> do you want to respond? senator. >> the higher court of the country and to have the role of repairing the harm that has been done in this country to many people. no, no, thank you. what do you think? you have power. >> ma'am, do you want to talk. >> no i want to talk to him. don't talk to me. griff: excuse me, ma'am, what is happening there someone said the security saying you can't be there, you can't go. rachel: what kind of security is that? this is capital police. pete: husband takes tough votes. are you swayed by someone yelling at you in the elevator? is that a real thing? >> i actually think for a member like my husband's it
3:06 am
would probably actually tick him off even more but apparently it worked. first of all, i want to make two points. one, members only elevator, where was capital police? when there is this many protesters and this level of anger, i don't think this is safe for members of congress. and this isn't an exaggeration, there have been bad things that have happened to members of congress in very recent history. this makes me mad at capital police, first of all. pete: sure. rachel: listen, this is what passes for civil discourse on college campuses. it has come to coming. and thanks to what jeff flake did and, again, we will talk a little later it might end up being better to republicans, caving this will only encourage. this expect more. expect more. griff: i was covering it this week, elizabeth warren and we played a little bit of the sound earlier in the week, elizabeth warren was out in the hart senate office building atrium went and rallied these very
3:07 am
protesters to keep doing what they are doing. you know, that part of our process, i mean, we are talking about the due process of a man accused of a very serious allegation and, yet, the protesters -- pete: also six fbi investigations for this guy. he has been through public opinions. he has had his character sensentassassinated. i love the use of her truth. what about his truth? her truth is her truth, fine. she can say what she wants. he has the opportunity to rebut that. he has done that at the last second a weak-minded republican in jeff flake, who is not running for re-election, because he could never get reelected. people are sick of guys like him gets confronted in elevator and some democrats in a cloak room and he caves? it's pathetic. it's also a demonstration of our modern politics where it's a protest session all the time and a lot of people give in, some people give in at those moments. you have to realize the
3:08 am
items don'demsdon't want a fair. god bless lindsey gramg what hgrahamit's true. he spoke for a lot of americans when he said you played politics not the truth on this. rachel: it will be delayed for weeks. this is what jason chaffetz a former member of congress had to say about what the real reason is behind this delay. >> very good friends with jeff flake and on a personal level, i really like the guy. but, how can you. sean: senator snowflake is what i call him. >> how can you look at this person and say we need more time to investigate at the same time he has zero questions of ford around zero questions of kavanaugh. that's your opportunity. that's the job of the senators, not some job of the fbi agent doing seventh background check. it's the politics of personal destruction. it's a playbook that the democrats continue to use. scorched earth. it's the resistance movement. they wants to destroy kavanaugh. they want to delay this as long as possible, defeat him and drag this country into the dull drums.
3:09 am
it is absolutely fundamentally wrong and republicans have got to step up like lindsey graham and call it out for what it. >> here here. >> and make sure this person is now sitting on the supreme court. pete: i'm fired up and frustrated like a lot of people help me with the math here. how does this go forward? griff: where we were before the flake incident happened, we were at 48 yeses in the republicans, right? you can only lose one republican or you are in trouble, two, kavanaugh goes down. that's the reality of this. murkowski, collins, and flake were the fence sitters in the republican party. now you have got this investigation. but, if you look back and remember this emotional week of all the democrats saying that it would be wrong to confirm him without an fbi investigation, now the fbi is going to do it. so there is one side of the story that suggests that not only could you get the fence sitting republicans, collins, murkowski and flake, but you might pick up -- pete: the failing "new york times" says a week not
3:10 am
enough time. maybe we need more. is anything honest about this? do they really want a week or as much time as they want? they want to derail it as long as they want. griff: at some point you are undermining the professionalism of the fbi. the fbi, the president has ordered this limited scope investigation and i don't know why the "new york times" doesn't have confidence in the foib do their job. rachel: chris thinks this could be good for republicans. here is what he said last night. >> this is a high wire act, the longer kavanaugh hangs out there that there will be other claims that it will become more complicated. let's also understanding they were faced with a very unhappy thing. they were going to have to jam this through quite potential whether i mike pension having tpence having tot deciding vote. they were hoping they would get democratic votes and that it would be bipartisan and go through in a way that was more pleasing to
3:11 am
everybody involved. pete: yeah, i guess, right? i just feel like republicans have blinked and they have had to because it's such a razor thin margin. if you weren't thinking about voting in the mid terms, this is evidence as to why you should. razor thin majorities means one guy who is not up for re-election determines the fate. a week is a lifetime. the left is going to throw everything they can at this guy for another week. rachel: you are right. the delay of the 10 days before was devastating to kavanaugh's reputation. that said, republicans are fired up like i have never seen. my phone from women i know that are independents said are kind of apolitical, you know, maybe lean conservative, oh my goodness. everybody was watching this. everybody is engaged and everyone has an opinion. here's the deal. democrats were already fired up. their base was already energized. it was the republican side and i can tell you as a political spouse we were
3:12 am
concerned about complacency on our part because a lot of republicans are kind of happy with the economy. they are kind of complacent politically. this has charged people up. people are on fire mad. pete: everyone has a son or a father who could be accused like this. this is the thing, if they can get brett kavanaugh, we are all done. the reality this guy is a great man who went through high school like the west of us and now he is brought through the ringer. griff: may be called into service and think twice because of watching what happened to kavanaugh. rachel: take the corporate job. great legal minds. pete: so, what can the fbi actually find in a week? we're going to ask former fbi agent who led the agency's hunt for the unabomber coming up next. griff: plus, grab your cowboy hat and boots the state fair of texas is here. gillian and carley are live

3:14 am
3:15 am
♪ ♪ rachel: president trump now ordering the fbi to investigate allegations against judge kavanaugh saying it should be limited in scope and shouldn't last more than one week. pete: what will yet another background check show? former deputy assistant director for the fbi's counter-terrorism division who caught the unabomber, terry turchie joins us now. we have one more week, there have been six previous background checks, what more will we or could we learn here? >> well, what we have right now, pete, is we have allegations without any substantiation and without any corroboration. and it really goes to the fbi's power house.
3:16 am
they can put a lot of people together. they can sit down and interview the complainant. do this devoid of any enotion in a room just the interviewers and dr. ford. they start there. and they try to find out if there is anything else that she might have missed saying, missed remembering. try to jog her memory. get more details and take all the details we all know from these hearings and all of the things and examples they might be able to get to maybe add more to this. and then they will go out and run all of this down. and they have plenty of time. i have heard a lot of the people talk about you can't do this in a week. i think we have to keep something in perspective. the fbi can get 2,000 agents just about everywhere in the world in a matter of a few hours. and they can do major things logistically. this is not that big of a deal. keep in mind that they are already very familiar with judge kavanaugh. is he, as you said, gone through six background
3:17 am
investigations there are people who did those. probably some of them still in the bureau. they will be reviewing all of that they will be looking at anything now, in the light of what has come out. that possibly they may think they missed then. so all of those kind of things are going to go on. and at the end of the day, they are going to have a really good picture of whether there is anything here. and, again, i have to stress something and then i will stop for a second. it was really a stark contrast to me the other day that we have, in america, in our republic. we have judge kavanaugh sitting there essentially facing inquisition. you did not see any attorney sitting at the table on the right or the left. it was just him. and it was rather uncomfortable to me after being in the fbi for 32 years and after interviewing people who would bring complaints in and our subjects who have committed crimes. we always try to be respectful and decent to everybody because you have got to do that if you are going to have your integrity
3:18 am
going forward. it's just bizarre to see how this has carried out. i hope the fbi can kind of take the emotion out of this and that's really what they will try to do and try to find more facts to pursue. rachel: it was very interesting i had no idea they could do this as quickly and when i heard the attorney say they want more time. it was clear what from what you are saying they don't need more time and they can do this maybe before a week is over. >> what's fascinating, rachel, michael knows they can do this in a matter of hours. they can do anything they are asked to do as long as they have a lot of cooperation. now, if they call to kind of -- all this kind of begins, keep in mind, with sitting down with the complainant. they call and the lawyers say oh, we are both on vacation, we can't see you for two weeks, that's going to slow things down a bit. pete: of course, and physical evidence at this point does not exist.
3:19 am
terry turchie thank you for your time. appreciate it good stuff. >> you are very welcome. pete: california's liberal governor his name is jerry brown, taking a shot at the second amendment. restrict gun rights even more. the new law he just signed coming up next. rachel: democrats got what they wanted but will they really accept the results of the fbi or just playing politics? we will debate that next. >> the fbi investigation must be impartial and objective. it must be given enough time to do that work.
3:20 am

pete: we are back with a fox news alert. at least 384 people are dead and hundreds injured. anna: earthquake and tsunami strike inc. doneisha. the 7.5 magnitude earthquake leaving a path of
3:23 am
destruction. rescue efforts, as you can imagine are still underway. the military wants to know why a cutting edge f-35 we spent billions on them a marine pilot forced to eject to the air investigation. and a suspected terrorist accused deadly new york city bike path death penalty. lack of reforce and continued support of isis. yeah. that counts. he pled not guilty to mowing down a crowd after mowing down a crowd, killing at least 8 people last year. griff, over to you. griff: thanks, pete. staging a walk out as the judiciary committee scheduled a vote on judge kavanaugh. >> this has got to stop. so i walked out. i'm not going to participate in this charade anymore. democrats are not being heard. they are pushing through this process. and from top to bottom, this
3:24 am
has been about bullies. >> there has been no adequate fbi investigation. there has been no sufficient fact-finding. griff: now democrats got exactly what thepghted fbi investigation of judge kavanaugh. will they finally allow the process to play out or will they continue to play politics with his nomination. here to debate it former apprentice c ngt and trump supporter aaron elmore and max burns. good morning to you. happy saturday. so, let me start with you, erin. what do you make about the democrats now have what they wanted, this investigation. they grand standed all week long about it. will this finally set the record straight? >> there is less than a zero percent chance that the democrats are going to act with any sort of propriety or decorum here. we haven't seen that throughout the process. we know this is nothing more than political theater. at best, it is that at worse, this is a total
3:25 am
political coup. they are destroying brett kavanaugh's life for nothing. there is no evidence. there are no facts. and i'm sure this is seventh fbi investigation will be the one that is the red hers as they say in scooby-doo. there is no way that is going to happen. griff: max, independents to bring you in, real quick, you mention the process here. let me just put up this. this is the nominee's statement brett kavanaugh saying yesterday throughout this process i have been interviewed by the fbi. i have done a number of background calls directly with the senate and yesterday i answered questions under oath about every topic the senators and their counsel asked me. i have done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate. max, i want you to respond to what this now means for the democrats on the committee. >> well, the first thing is we keep saying the democrats got what they wanted. this was jeff flake and the democrats were willing to roll over here until lisa murkowski came along. this was the g.o.p. asking for this investigation. we have been asking for this for two weeks.
3:26 am
dr. ford has, democrats have, now jeff flake has. and we started this two weeks ago, we would have been done by now and this vote would have happened and one less rolling crisis for the president. griff: when this vote happenings, max, and erin, the question to you, do you believe this could increase the number of votes that kavanaugh gets for confirmation? >> well, obviously he is going to be exonerated after this week is over. the only problem is the avenattis of the world will come out of woodwork with false accusations democrats will say we need more time. this is nothing more than a stalling and delaying tactic. in the words of louisiana's great senator kennedy, this is an intergalactic freak show. he is not wrong. also, another one quote i will leave you here steve ames of montana senator's office said calling this is a circus a disservice to clowns. both of those statements are true. political theater nightmare
3:27 am
do you know shot leading actor in this cory booker he deserves an academy award. this is a total circus disaster joke and it's not grounded in any sort of reality whatsoever. griff: max, i see you nodding your head and erin mentions timing the editorial says one week is not enough. what do you say? >> i think the anita hill investigation when it was reopened took three days. dr. ford has said that an investigation at all would be an advantage. we're finally going to get to talk most likely the fbi with mark judge, with mark judge's girlfriend with these individuals that the republicans in the senate have covered for, have refused to bring forward. and i think it's because they realize there are serious problems with judge kavanaugh's story. griff: thank you very much. have a great saturday. we will continue to talk about this all week long. thank you very much. the left continuing its attack on judge kavanaugh but you won't believe what one media outlet is now
3:28 am
saying should happen to coach kavanaugh. plus, jillian mele and carley shimkus live at the state fair of texas. good morning, girls. >> and, pete, i know you are so jealous. we have friday oreos. carley: that's mean. to make it even worse for you guys, i'm holding a big plate of chicken and waffles and we're going to be trying one of the state fair foods finalists coming up. giving you a hint right now, it's friday. fried. and the wolf huffed and puffed... like you do sometimes, grandpa? well, when you have copd, it can be hard to breathe. so my doctor said... symbicort can help you breathe better.

what did you think of his testimony. >> he showed some strength. that's for sure. he didn't take it lying down. i can only imagine what he and his family are going through. it's the vicious attacks they have been under is pretty who are risk. and definitely a tough situation. he handled it as tough as he could. he didn't go after his accuser. i think he handled that pretty cordially. he showed some emotion. we always say leaders have to balance. he showed emotion but didn't lose control of his emotions. brian: wrote a new book called the dichotomy of leadership. pulling on your experience. a guy with a silver stars, a purple star and bronze heart you understanding that. you are providing leadership for a nation. talk to me about your book and the lessons that you draw from it? >> our first book extreme ownership how leaders have to own everything in the world. own mistakes and failures, not cast blame, not make excuses. but, that title was taken out of context by some

people and they took extreme leaders have to be extreme in everything that they do. and that was misunderstood. jacques and i determined we had to write a new book. leaders have to balance. it's most important leaders have to balance between two opposing forces. >> what are those opposing forces. >> infinite number of dichotomies, pulling a leader in different directions. you know certainly as a military leader as well as in the business world, anywhere in your life, a leader has to be aggressive. you have to be able to maneuver and make things happen and solve problems. you can't be too aggressive. you actually have to mitigate risks. you have to be disciplined in what you do and follow discipline standard operating procedures you can't be village, you have to have a team that can think and have leaders that can think and make decisions and not be just stuck to a process. you have to be a leader and a follower. that was one of the toughest ones for me is that in order to be a good leader, you have to also be a follower
3:48 am
and willing to listen to the junior folks on your team and follow their plan. pete: that is a lesson. you have been to more military schools i have. big lesson for the military as well. when you are a leader, you only want people who know how to follow as well productively. you know, as an employee or a member of the military, hey, i have been in your shoes. have you been in mine. let's work together to solve problems. >> we want leaders in every level of the organization. people that are going to step up and lead, whether they're the front line troop or just in charge of themselves or their piece of the mission or someone in a high ranking leadership position. leaders at every slefl what is going to make the best team. pete: dichotomy of leadership. i know it will be a success. good stuff. we have a big show ahead. we will fry make the show a success. david brode, jason chaffetz, dan bongino. i will listened to dan bongino's podcast on the way. in you are not going to want to miss it. he is coming up live. is your home ready for cool

4:03 am
committee. after what was an eternity was only about an hour and a half, an eternity in the way these things happen. jeff flake decides to go to leader senate majority leader mitch mcconnell and says i'm going to ask for this one week delay to let the fbi do its investigation. mcconnell puts it in play. so here's where we are now. the fbi will be looking into it. right in they are going to do -- we heard for a week and a half there needs to be an fbi investigation. now it's going to happen. and president trump jumping on board as well, tweeting last night, let me start with his tweet. he says just started tonight, our seventh fbi investigation of judge brett kavanaugh. he will some day be recognized as a truly great justice of the united states supreme court. pete: that's a tweet he never, of course, wanted to send, unfortunately a raiser thirazorthin majority. jeff flake not up for the senate because no one would
4:04 am
elect him again. rachel: he couldn't win dogcatcher. pete: convinced by a protester and democrats who has more in common with than the president at this point. he decides to delay. that's what this is all about. we all know it democrats want to delay this as long as they can to throw a wrench into it, to find a way to get to 2020. god bless lindsey graham. you all heard the sound. we should play it i would play it on a loop all morning long if i could. what he said about this nomination is exactly right. and unfortunately jeff flake has delayed it by a week. listen, scawfn a bo kavanaugh iy scout. he will be fine. he will survive this. so unfortunate what happened. rachel: there was a moment you discussed how he changed his vote. there was a moment that caused him to change the vote. he gets into a member's only elevator. griff: right here. rachel: protesters confront him. an activist confronting jeff flake in the elevator in the senate. >> you are allowing someone who is unwilling to take responsibility for his own

4:06 am
editorial today saying well, it's not good enough. one week is not enough time. >> what the activists, the protester there is asking jeff flake to do is for him to make brett kavanaugh a stand-in for everybody who has ever had a sexual assault. i mean, this woman had. pete: alleged. rachel: this woman had something happen to her the woman confronting him in the elevator saying you are hurting me by not -- by voting for him. that's a really odd thing to do and by the way, also, that we're allowing the process to be derailed by that kind of a confrontation. it worked in this case, and i think because it worked we will see more of it. pete: impugning the character of someone who has categorically said and credibly with no evidence that he wasn't there and he didn't do it. contrast what jeff flake did, wilting like a lame flower literally like beta jeff flake in the elevator. contrast that with lindsey
4:07 am
graham walking through the hallway. he is getting screamed at by protesters, same protesters, i don't know. same perspective. he is walking, giving an interview, confident in his view. this guy has been in the senate. he has worked across the aisle. he voted for elena kagan and sotomayor. obama won the election and they're qualified. that's what it is about. circus. is he calling out for what it is. god bless him. you have still have weak members of the senate like jeff flake who caved. griff: may turn out to be good for brett kavanaugh. let's bring in kerry sever reno the former clerk to justice thomas. i want to bring you, in we have been talking about this and trying to explain to viewers who may not have seen how this happened could help him. what do you think. >> i think it is possible. we have been saying all along not just the republican senators you need to be looking at here. a lot of red state democrats
4:08 am
who have a lot of skin in this game. we did poolin polling after the hearings. it already had been a real lopsided thing where 26% of voters in the state or 20% of voters in the state. 26% of independence said they wanted kavanaugh confirmed now up to 30% of voters in the state. again, huge numbers of the independents, of women. this is something that red state democrats have to recognize that watching this circus, watching the uncorroborated allegation being used to attempt to destroy a man's reputation, that doesn't sit well with a lot of americans. have you got people like joe manchin and people like heidi heitkamp who have a really tough decision here. are we going to vote to confirm someone universally regarded as one of the best qualified judges ever nominated to the supreme court or are we going to vote to endorse a really vicious gain on the part of some democrats to does chuck
4:09 am
schumer said whatever it takes to block a nomination? >> carrie you clerked for justifiable thomas. a lot of people feel like the testimony he gave at that moment in that time was the reason he was confirmed. a lot of people look at brett kavanaugh and his testimony and say powerful, credible. this attempt to delay it by a week, is it really positive or is it really a caving to the powers that be that want to derail this nomination? >> look, i think the great thing that happened today brett kavanaugh is one step closer to nomination to the supreme court. jeff flake, susan collins and lisa murkowski felt like if they are going to see the fbi look into it before they are comfortable with it at the end of the day we are not going to see much different than what we saw, in that makes them more comfortable that's wheel do. in the ford allegations everyone interviewed. everyone she said was a witness. all of these people, we know where they are, it's not hard to get them back and get them on the record one
4:10 am
more time. you are not going to find out much different. the allegations still don't have any evidence or corroboration. i think that's what we will see going forward. we have already investigated them. i think at the end of this week, we're going to have a justice kavanaugh and that's excited. griff: you say, carey carrie, je marchen, heidi heitkamp and joe donnelly who said he was a no. perhaps that will change his mind. many of the democrats on that committee say if the republicans got him through on a very narrow margin there would be this cloud of doubt that would hang over him for, you know, his entire career as associate justice. will this now, you predict, possibly remove that cloud of doubt if he is confirmed by greater numbers than we would have been headed for had this not happened? >> again, i think you may have seen a lot of those democrats voting for him either way. what they're attempting to do here is discredit his entire, you know, term on the court. that's silly. i think americans can see
4:11 am
what went on here and i think that's the care here. if you can't have an uncorroborated allegation, this isn't he said, she said anymore. it's now she said, nobody else said. we have looked through all the people she said were there and so, i don't think that is going to interact it. this is someone so well respected by everyone on the municipal court going into it that more than a dozen' times they voted and said brett kavanaugh is the one who has this right. you will see this going forward as well. pete: debrdeb katz said thorough investigation is critical to developing all relevant facts. no artificial limits as to time or scope should be imposed on this investigation. she is implying a week may not be enough just like they implied that our client doesn't like to fly even though she was already on the east coast. is there any grain of truth here or are they just want to string it out?
4:12 am
>> i think what we have seen through this whole process is a lot of interest in constantly moving the goal post one step further. i think it's clear what ms. cats is doing. they were saying before, this what's wrong with an fbi investigation? it's going to take only a few days anita hill's investigation only took three days. this won't be bad. now, of course, this could be a big deal. this is going to be a government funded fishing expedition with no reasonable limits. let's look into the credible. limits they put on it. that's a fair assessment. i don't think we have to listen to everyone who wants to say let's drag this out until november until 2020. pete: quote of the morning government funded fishing expedition. well said. you are eminently quotable and smart. thank you for your time. griff: thanks, carrie. rachel: thanks, carrie. pete: what impact could the fbi probe have on the mid terms. david brody says it could backfire big time on democrats. he joins us next.

griff. rachel: we know the democrats already have this entire season, you know, preelection season had already really energized. i don't know how much more energized they could get, but i'm sensing that republicans have very energized in this moment, this week, this hearing has really fired them up. >> there is no doubt about it senator dianne feinstein has unleashed in essence a deplorable evangelical base for sure that is really frustrated and spartacus did a good job as well. look, here is the bottom line to all of this, from my reporting and from that deplorable evangelical basic tell you they say the democrats' dirty tricks have riled them up like never before. i know rush limbaugh has talked about how if kavanaugh is not confirmed i think it's going to be real tough for republicans. actually if kavanaugh is not confirmed that will rile up the g.o.p. base even more at least the people i'm hearing from. that's a big part of what is
4:18 am
going on here. griff: let me ask you this, how do you see this playing? we were talking with carrie severino with the crisis network. delay could increase the number of confirmation votes that kavanaugh gets. in terms of the mid terms, how do you see this impacting red state democrats? >> well, a couple of things, first of all, i believe that the numbers would increase for sure for those red state democrats. let's remember, joe manchin if you look at west virginia 58 to 28% folks there in west virginia want brett kavanaugh confirmed. that's a lot of pressure on joe manchin. we also know if he goes ahead and confirms brett kavanaugh he is pretty much close to being reelected at that point in the midterm elections up in the senate race, there is a lot of pressure on him to do so. i think with this fbi investigation it would make perfect sense. i think this is really important to point out. you have another week now not just of an fbi investigation that's going to go on but a chance for democrats to, in essence, bring up a few other things.
4:19 am
i mean are they going to overplay their hand even more going back to, i don't know, brett kavanaugh's kindergarten preschool paint class where he was finger painting? the point is they could really overplay their hand here and that would make even more enthusiasm on the republican side. rachel: friends in the media are now smearing him and implying that somehow this man, who, again, no substantial evidence against him in any way, they are suggesting that he should not be coaching girls basketball teams. these kinds -- you talk about overplaying their hands. this has to anger a lot of people. >> that's right. it's getting lindsey graham and donald trump go out. speak about overplaying your hand. imagine donald trump and lindsey graham and others they, the democrats, are going for double impeachment strategy. they want to impeach me and impeach kavanaugh?
4:20 am
who else do they want to impeach? that's uplifting message in 2018. griff: that's a good point, david. that will be interesting. a real risk for democrats heading into what is going to be unbelievably exciting and perhaps historic mid terms. david brody host of faith nation. thank you very much. have a great saturday. >> thanks guys. griff: activists confront jeff flake over his decision to vote for brett kavanaugh. watch this. >> you are allowing someone who is unwilling to take responsibility for his own action. >> senator, do you want to respond. >> higher court of the country. griff: dan bongino probably has no opinion whatsoever about that. we'll find out next. rachel: i can't wait to see what dan has to say. plus a major security breach at facebook, 50 million users hit by hackers. what the social media giants is doing about it next ♪

4:26 am
nobody can say that right now, they are under this allusion that jeff flake is going to back them up on the floor when there is a floor vote. here is what jeff flake in fact did. the democrats needed a moment of clarity to get past lindsey graham's explosive volcanic floor statement that provided everybody with a real account for once of what is actually going on. the democrats had to desperately get past that they needed a delay. they know damn well this fbi investigation is going to do nothing to provide any clarity in this situation at all. and jeff flake gave it to him. he sold out the g.o.p. everybody is afraid to say it on some desperate hope that this man is going to grow a spine over the next few days on the floor vote. is he finished. it's time to move on. you have to convince murkowski, collins and manchin. flake is over. it's done. that's exactly what happened yesterday. that's the truth however painful it is to hear.

[laughter] rachel: shows how obsessed they are with donald trump on the left that they couldn't see what lindsey graham was talking about was a human being. a guy's who life who is fighting for his life.
4:36 am
this is a primal moment that brett kavanaugh had right there in front of him just minutes before -- just a few minutes before lindsey graham said that and that's what he was responding to. a man fighting for his life, fighting for his reputation. fighting for his family. and they think this is all about being trumpafied. really weird. griff: mar's ridiculous rhetoric at what point does it reach its pinnacle? every time something happens it goes to absurd level of rhetoric and really kind of starting to lose its impact. i mean, you know, as you mentioned maher frequently does this sort of thing. i'm not even affected by it anymore. brian: he was referring to john mccain is what he was talking about they were good friends and fought for a lot in this country. lindsey graham believes in bipartisan and working across the aisle to the frustration of a lot of conservatives and republicans. but, he has reached such a
4:37 am
moment that this attempt for that isn't working, hasn't worked. he is watching his colleagues on the democratic side make a sham of a process he believes. in that's as closes to righteous anger you are going to see. not not manufactured, not trumpified. this is a guy who said i tried. i have done my best. i voted for kagan and sotomayor. you won't give this guy a fair hearing. everything you door is a sham. that's rye it resonated. nothing to do with trump and john mccain having to do with honest guy in a moment speak for a lot of people. god bless lindsey graham and what he said. things like that is shameful attempt from the leftist to justify. rachel: why you want to have this speech on a loop. we want to hear what you think about that. pete: yes. 74 times over four hours. griff: to to another honest guy rick reichmuth who has the weather outside. >> do what you just did. >> i'm so excited. hi, everybody. hi mom and dad.

5:07 am
they need more time and make sure they make it as painful as possible. pete: just jeff flake just hate donald trump or is his skin so thin because we saw lindsey graham getting yelled at. we have video of it. walking down the hallway and getting screamed at by protesters. he knows what he believes. if you are a conservative liberals are going to scream at you. if you are liberal conservatives are probably going to scream at you. rachel: they don't. pete: not the same way, exactly right. look at the mob. that was unfair comparison by me. the left does this almost exclusively. for jeff flake not to anticipate that and understand that does he have no core? does he have it out for president trump? is he really that fickle? rachel: is he auditioning for a job on msnbc? pete: thank you. >> well, look, it's hard to look at the motivation. i believe that jeff flake speaks from his heart. he did issue a statement and said he would vote for her. i'm proud of the fact that that passed out of the judiciary committee with a favorable recommendation to the floor of the house.

5:09 am
justice. judge kavanaugh is your worst nightmare. griff: jason, clearly they were not satisfied about his answers about his yearbook in high school. now the fbi will look into that yearbook as well. what is this going to ultimately do to the process? >> lock, al look, all those dems on the judiciary committee they are a no no matter what. democratic group put out a press release opposing the nomination and they forgot to put the name of the justice in. it's just plug and play for them. they already knew exactly what they were going to do. pete: remember when richard blumenthal served heroicfully vietnam no, i didn't either because it didn't happen. the imminent amount of credibility that this group has to stand up and preach is unbelievable. rachel: what really concerns me, jason, you can speak to this, you were the chairman of a committee is just the break down of decorum. there is no judge in a hearing. there is no judge in a committee. it really functions and
5:10 am
doesn't devolve into chaos because people agree to follow rules, traditions, decorum. we have senators, throwing tantrums and walking out and really kind of making a mockery. pete: a spectacle. rachel: spectacle of our institutions. what do you say to that? what's going to happen to our fragile institutions because of this kind of behavior? >> well, the judiciary committee has had a long-standing decorum on how to deal with these nominations. but, what really irks me about these democrats is they didn't turn over the documents. we have talked a lot about that when they had this information. instead they were coaching her up and trying to put together get her an attorney and do those types of things. they didn't do anything to protect her anonymity. and this idea that oh, i don't want to be out there in the public and i really want to hide this but at the same time i'm going to do an interview with "the washington post," that doesn't seem to add up to me. and if you really wanted to keep this quiet, you could
5:11 am
have done a transcribed interview under oath behind closed doors but she didn't want to do that either. nevertheless, they gave her every opportunity. remember, ms. ford was given an opportunity to say whatever she wants. no time limit in what she wanted to say. and she said that mr. kavanaugh, to put him through. this answered over a thousand questions hour after hour of questions. democrats not asking a single question about that moving up, what more do we think that the fbi is going to do? it's the senators' job and the senators haven't been doing their job by saying oh we need more time. pete: so well said. jason, thank you. that's why we have you on. have you chaired committees. you know this stuff. thanks for joining us this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you. rachel: thank you, jason. now i'm going to chair these headlines, guys. we begin with a fox news alert. two police officers are killed during an early morning shootout in mississippi. one of the suspected gunmen is dead. the other one recovering from a gunshot wound at a

5:19 am
corroborate. because that's all that has been offered by her side. and then look at this pattern of delay, coordination, and obfuscation. griff: senator, how will your colleagues on the other side who have played politics all along as many have suggested, how will that affect in ultimate vote for judge kavanaugh? >> yeah. i think that -- i think most people on the republican side see it for what it's worth. it is a pattern of leaks, set to delay and to character assassinate. things being released that should not be published because there is no support for them. but, because it's released. it feeds into the delay. >> i just want to pressure you a little bit because what your colleague senator lindsey graham did was to truly reach across partisan isles, if you will, to say look at what we are doing. we are better than this, if this investigation does prove that the politics are being played on the democratic side, should we then see something out of them?

november 6th election. do you know what this is doing? energizing republicans. >> and democrats. >> democrats are already energized. how many democrats will you call on to say this week when it comes back there is no proof that this never happened, how many of them will vote yes? pete: that's a really fair points. one of the things lindsey graham said say hi to sotomayor and elena kagan because i voted for them. they were eminently qualified because barack obama won an election. to you and then to michael, elections have consequences and kavanaugh, if this comes back and nothing is there, shouldn't it be a 90-10 vote? >> it won't be 90-10 but you will get the three senators who voted for gulch, heidi heitkamp, joe manchin and joe donnelly. i think those three. donnelly broke the dam of the red state democrats to say we need an fbi investigation. i'm a vote no for this. you might get a couple more in the spirit of these red state democrats. no, it's a much more partisan time and, yeah,

our ai immigration laws and cross the border illegally, you will be held in custody pend ago deportation hearing. that didn't happen. what happened is they crossed the border, they asked for amnesty. and we leased them into the united states. now, we give them a court date in which they are supposed to show up for deportation hearing. but 80% of the people that get released into the united states, never show up for their court hearing. therefore, warrants are placed out for their arrest, but we don't arrest them because the liberals say well, you shouldn't be arresting people that haven't committed violent crimes. so, you know, you just -- it was estimated that we had 10 million illegal aliens in the united states, and now there is a new study that came out that says no, we probably have 22 million illegal aliens in the united states. and the more as years go by, we continue to add to that illegal immigration population. griff: we're almost out of time, brandon.

6:06 am
has ordered this supplemental fbi probe. they will go into the field and do the sorts of things that they do per the book and per how the fbi operates with these things. they will come back and report to the white house and senate what they find. >> does the president believe democrats are being ernest in seeking truth or justice or does he believe that this is ultimately a delay tactic, a stall tactic to try and defeat him and his nominee? >> from the votes persuadable, we think it is probably or possibly a genuine ask but from the overwhelming majority of democrats led by senator schumer who pledged the native brett kavanaugh is nomination, that he was going to oppose the nomination with everything he had, he is not interested in finding more facts or learn more information. >> when we had investigation, we had hearings, six of them. does it come down to one
6:07 am
senators road? did the democrats win in delaying this? >> it comes down to a few senators votes. they want to be reassured so we are going on with the process. judge kavanaugh has had nothing to hide. he has agreed to anything and everything he's been asked to do. that includes countless hours of testimony, thousands of questions. now eight hours of testimony, riveting testimony that you saw on thursday. he is prepared to do anything and everything that he is being asked. he is disappointed in the process. this has gone from advice and consent to search and destroy. but as he said pretty compellingly, he will not be driven from this process by false accusations. he plans to defend his name. >> he certainly did defend it very vigorously. louisiana senator, one of the questions that was left unanswered is, who leaked the ford by doctor ford? this is what he had to say.
6:08 am
>> let's actually investigate. asked dianne feinstein under oath, did she leak it? then i think most people on the republican side see it for what it's worth. a pattern of leaks, such a delay and character assassinate. things being released that should not be published because there is no support for them. but because it's released it feeds into the delay. we should not set a standard that you can do character assassination, coordinated pattern of it to bring someone down. christ is the present support fbi investigation into this matter? >> he is not been asked directly to do that. we are focused on is what the senate and chairman grassley and leader mcconnell and the other undecided senators have asked, which is to focus on this specific set or array of allegations. we will let the fbi handle that as an update. but senator cassidy does raise a good point. which is that, if this were handled normally, it could have
6:09 am
been vetted in a confidential matter, it could've kept the privacy of dr. ford, maintain the privacy of judge kavanaugh on the matter and allow this stuff to be brought to the senate in a confidential matter. instead, it was blown out into the open through a leak. and yes, senator feinstein even at the hearing the other day, could not answer whether she had asked her staff whether they leaked this information. she didn't! >> and i think she is the villain in this because frankly, doctor ford was re-victimized by having to do -- courts all the time, try not to do this to women. and somebody did this on purpose for political purposes. >> should we find out who this is? >> i think we should try to find out. they should look into the matter and try to find out who leaked the information. because you do not want to set a precedent where someone does not feel comfortable coming to

6:11 am
it could? >> i doubt it. >> is an honest question. >> i understand. >> we had a guest on in the first segment of the show that to listen, this could be done in less than a week. in terms of the week that the fbi could do they are that good at it and that quick at it. they could be done in three days! why would we need more than a week? >> i do not want to dive into how the fbi handles these matters. we will let them do what they do. you can go on a fishing expedition and spend months or years into anyone. that is the reality and the world we live in. but what they have asked for is limited in scope. and if it comes back you know, in some fashion that we expect, which is clean. judge kavanaugh has not done this and evidence supports that, that we can move forward with the vote. >> thank you, it is another week. >> thank you. >> thank you for having me. >> we will turn out to headlines. we begin with a fox news alert.

investigation. and what happened in 2016 and early 2017 and obviously, we have two interests at the judiciary committee andthe government oversight committee , chaired by trey gowdy. in this conversation that the new york times reported about. both the terms of if they are true, appalling comments by the deputy attorney general regarding the possibility of wearing a wire when he met with his employer, the president of the united states. and regarding his talking about, calling cabinet secretaries about invoking the 25th amended. which is a process whereby you declare the president to be disabled, unfit for office and that obviously would promote a serious constitutional crisis. but, it also very much bears upon our concern for how this entire investigation leading up

to the appointment of special counsel, both with regard to hillary clinton and with regard to the so-called trump/russia collision -- collision took place.we have been attempting to get the mccabe memos. memos written by the former deputy fbi director, mccabe that would shed light on this. yesterday, actually thursday, i issued a subpoena to the justice department compelling them to issue the, the mccabe memos through congress as well as other documents that are vital to our investigation that we had not subpoenaed earlier. the documents -- >> i would like to ask you real quick, what was the response that you received from the justice department so far on the request? >> well, we've not received the mccabe memos this far.

and the response has been unsatisfactory. basically, it is part of an ongoing investigation. but guess what? there are at least three ongoing investigations that the memos pertain to. the one that i refer to that i and chairman gaudi have been conducting as part of the oversight responsibilities, also the investigation of special counsel investigation, mr. mueller. now we know that andrew mccabe is under investigation for potential criminal charges. all three of those investigations should share the information. they can be held in confidence but we need to see it. the same thing with the nature of this conversation paid i explained all of this to the attorney general he understood all concerned and agreed to meet with us in the coming weeks and we are working on

>> welcome back. the attacks on judge kavanaugh know no limits. asking if he should coach children. they said the u.s. senate may yet confirm cabinet to the supreme court. but he should stay off the basketball courts for now. when kids are around, is the media and particularly, eric brady crossing line? you to become a democratic strategist, nathan rubin and a senior advisor to the trump campaign. happy saturday, thank you for being here. this certainly struck a chord because it crosses the line, coach kavanaugh, going after him? i have two daughters that play
6:48 am
sports in washington. and kavanaugh and eight or so girls on a vespa team, let me show you, as is crossing a line? >> first, thank you for having me. i want to say that sexual assault should be a nonpartisan issue. it is a nonpartisan issue. it is not republican, it is not democrat is not even uniquely american it is a human issue. men and women are both capable of being victims of sexual assault. that can lead to lasting trauma. when it comes to something like this article, i definitely think the fbi investigation will shed more light on whether or not judge kavanaugh did, perhaps, commit some sort of act in his past. and we should evaluate accordingly. >> what is your take on this? >> this is absolutely
6:49 am
ridiculous. there is no sexual assault here. there is no crime, no police report. no investigation of a crime. everyone has been talk about a repressed high school memory. for two weeks and this man's life is being destroyed. his reputation is being destroyed. this is exactly why the vote should have never been postponed. because of stuff like this. it will continue to come out and look, we should thank god that donald trump ran for president in 2016. because this moment in time is a highlight of why moderate republicans have been unable to win a national election since 2004. because they don't have the courage, the will or the conviction to engage this culture war and fight back. this is their guy that they put out there and they're not defending him. they are letting the left run the show. i find absolutely absurd. >> if i can respond really quick. but i want to say that is that
6:50 am
every american should welcome the fbi investigation. there are only a finite amount of outcomes. the fbi will look into it and no new evidence will arise and judge kavanaugh will be confirmed. or new evidence will arrive show he is innocent and will be confirmed to the supreme court. or new evidence will arise and will carbonate the testimony of doctor ford. which at what point we shall welcome that because sexual assault is a nonpartisan issue. >> there is no evidence. there is an allegation. >> you don't know that. >> every witness that she said was a witness has said nothing happened. there was no date, time, location, nothing to investigate. where is susan collins and lisa murkowski defendant of republican women whose husbands, sons have been under attack? >> we will know by the end of the week if there is evidence. >> zero evidence. >> we have breaking news, leland kaiser has not said she was one of the three people that said she will fully cooperate with the fbi investigation and a letter to the judiciary committee. we will find out more but again, we'll find if the media
