joe manchin who is in a tight race in west virginia. brian: joe manchin in particular, he went with -- voted for gulch. we knew that. it wasn't a conscious sequential vote because he knew he was going to pass. susan collins and jeff flake seemed to be on the same page. senator murkowski spent the day meeting with different women's group. she is absolutely on the fence. what jeff flake and susan collins believe they are very satisfied with the fbi investigation. pete: they came out of that report saying it was thorough and hoping t. did what they were hoping it would do. flake, collins, murkowski voted for gulch. murkowski did not vote for sotomayor and kagan. murkowski as you said, brian, everybody is watching out for. ainsley: people looking at joe manchin. he was leaving the senate and confronted by a protester. watch that. >> i don't understand how you cannot look me in the

3:08 am
sunday. we will see if it goes to that final tally does matter. 52-48 with justice thomas that was closest margin. ainsley: haven't heard from kavanaugh since the hearing he finally broke his silence wrote an op-ed in the "wall street journal." explaining how he is very emotional. regrets some of the things he said. tone is sharp. doing that to protect his family and doing that with his family in mind. brian: i was very emotional last thursday. more so than i have ever been. i might have been too emotional at times. i know that my tone was sharp. and i said a few things i should not have said, i hope everyone can understand that i was there as a son, husband, and dad. they all were there, by the way, except for the kids. i testified with five people mother most on my mind, my mom, my dad, my wife and most of all my daughters. going forward, you can count on me to be the same kind of judge and personal i have been for the last 28 years. hard working, even keeled open-minded independent and
3:09 am
dedicated to the constitution and public good. what about that tactic to bring it out? i sense that don mcgahn working hard to get him through people are upset about your tone to the senators more than your opening statement. how do we fix that? and he maybe pens that. pete: that's become part of the argument against him is will he be -- have a fair judicial mind set once on the bench? this is a guy who has never been a partisan bomb thrower yet he finds himself in a senate hearing dervedding his good name. he punches back hard. he knows who his primary audience is the president of the united states who needs to nominee with stand this on slot. look at lisa murkowski and susan collins. i'm not a guy who is going to come in here and be a partisan. stay with the 300 opinions i have written. eminently qualified. kavanaugh much more than a nominee cultural flash point. this is a deeper divide. we will see if republicans -- ainsley: when i read the op-ed, i thought who is making him write this?
3:10 am
why is he doing it? once you read it you realize is he defending himself and explaining why his tone the way it is because some people complained. reminds everyone who is reading this 28 year as lawyer. 12 years as a judge he says, five years of service in the white house under bush and majority of my 48 law clerks have been women. and then he talks about how he doesn't allow his opinions to sway how votes in court. is he very fair, follows the law and doesn't decide cases based on personal or policy preferences. brian: we know about the drama that took place friday afternoon when chris coons tapped flake on the shoulder vote this gets out of committee. demand the next seven days the fbi corroborates or not corroborates the stories between the new yorker accuser who knows about the avenatti one which ended up being fictitious, it seems. as well as more on dr. ford. they did that. here are the
3:11 am
people they interviewed. mark judge the friend, lee land kaiser the friend of ford. p.j. smythe the alleged party goer. timothy gaudette, chris garrett both object side of the dr. ford story. debra ramirez claims kavanaugh exposed himself. two of the three alleged eyewitnesses identified by ramirez, the third refused to cooperate. the fbi spoke. to say ramirez has come out and said well, i give you 20 people. why didn't you follow up on the 20 people doctor ford saying i have paperwork here and i wanted to talk to the fbi. the fbi says we already heard you under oath. what would change? we already heard brett kavanaugh under oath. what would change? but that was a theme and a mantra for most democrats yesterday. listen. >> we democrats had many fears that this would be a all-too limited process that would constrain the fbi from getting the facts. having received a thorough briefing a few minutes ago, our fears have been realized.
3:12 am
>> this set of interviews is at best most charitiably, woefully incomplete. to future bluntly smacks of a white wash, even a coverup. >> in your view is that investigation. >> it's obviously a coverup. making a mockery of the constitutional requirement that the senate provide its advice and consent. >> that report, [inaudible] investigation investigation. brian: he would know a lot about investigations because he been under one in three years. the hung jury let him keep his job. pete: ed henry, how are? ed: good morning. pete: democrats are saying this is a bleep investigation any politics here? ed: a lot. think about where we were one weaning ago today ready to vote o kavanaugh and jeff
3:13 am
flake caused a pause. they say this is a shame. this is nonsense. don't forget what jeff flake said one week ago this morning. he put out a statement before that one week pause that said in part, our system of justice affords a presumption of innocence to the accused. be a sent corroborating evidence, diet dot dot dot i wil confirm jeff kavanaugh. have you innocent until proven guilty in this country. absent corroborating evidence. now the fbi has come out. chuck grassley put out a summary of their report at midnight. read the email closely. it says there is no corroborating evidence. by jeff flake's standards he should vote yes, we'll see. ainsley: what are your predictions? >> people counting votes inside the white house have told me they believe murkowski is likely no. collins is likely yes. they are hopeful on manchin but they can't count on manchin being the deciding vote. what that means is if, and i
3:14 am
underline if hour can you ski is no and collins is yes. to say get to o50. that's the key. brian: senator manchin did, this he is almost assured six more years as a senator because west virginia is a red state loved by trump. trump is going to have a hard time attacking him if he delivers brett kavanaugh. and beginning of true middle ground on the democratic party. one thing about -- whatever you think about jeff flake and a lot of people are upset at him. nobody thinks he is not a conservative. he has always been conservative as a come. he just doesn't like president trump. people are getting blurred by that susan collins is a moderate. murkowski is a moderate. flake has never been a moderate. ed: this has been lost in awesome controversy. joe manchin, i think, two days ago said what i'm looking at is brett kavanaugh from, i think he said 22 to 53. his career. him as a gentleman. as a father. what does that mean? he is discounting what happened in high school and
3:15 am
what happened? college. is he saying 22 to 53. that sounds like manchin is getting there not quite there yet. i think it's going to come down to flake. we're going to find out later this morning. this -- they do not have 50 votes yet. that's the bottom line. brian: i laugh at the report that this report is being shoed aside by democrats most of them. 45 pages of introduce five days. 1600 pages of information that the fbi included as coming into their tip line. they included everything. brian: they also had six previous investigations to draw from as additional evidence. ed: you mentioned would you be more likely or less likely to vote for senate democratic if they oppose kavanaugh. for joe donefully indianna. less likely to vote for him 32%, less likely wins. heitcamp 34% less likely.
3:16 am
she is likely to lose. big gulf there i'm filling in for martha tonight 7:00 eastern. we'll don't know where this vote is going. today i feel like who knows if this vote is going to be delayed again. last friday we thought they were voting. they didn't vote. ainsley: lindsey graham coming out of the secure room yesterday. did you hear what he said yesterday? he is furious with the democrats. ed: throw him in water and see if he can float? ainsley: can we play what lindsey graham said? do we have that? i think we do. >> to my good friends, this is advise and consent? this is your view of the senate's role is to take a good man's life, turn itup side down, betray dr. ford's trust. do everything in the world to destroy him, to hold the seat open past the midterms. that's not advise and consent it's despicable. it's going to blow up n your face. he is going to get on the wrong.
3:17 am
they have no idea what the supplemental fbi investigation was about. they said they were voting no. let me tell you what have you done which is [bleep] ed: menendez is in trouble for new jersey. florida is touch and go for the incumbent. a lot of senate races. the rnc said their large e. fund raising day ever was last sunday because of kavanaugh there has been a republican surge because of this. brian: donald trump was kind of reserved yesterday. he talked about what a good person causative was but didn't come out against ford. ed: when you asked me about graham. protester chased him in the hallway. you have done everything to this man. throw him in water and see if he can vote. jeff flake and chris coons one week ago today said just give us a one week pause. let the fbi look at it independently. folks, they have done that. pete: a lot of evidence

3:54 am
credibility and i think it should be investigated. >> sure. because that would prove the point that he is -- that he misrepresented himself. brian: right. 36 years ago. the daily caller stephanie hammel joins us now with some reviews of her interview. stephanie, you braved the crowd. when did you realize that they were going to be tough to win over? >> yeah. i knew it was going to be tough to win anyone over. i go to a lot of these protesters and i definitely never win i the say judge brett kavanaugh has been investigated more than any other u.s. supreme court nominee in u.s. history. so, the fact that anyone would even suggest there would be another investigation after he has already been through. six investigations, seven with the last one. and the idea that people would want his beer drinking from his college in high school days investigateside absolutely absurd. brian: a lot of these probably just leaving the bar and going to this rally. and coming from high school or college.
3:55 am
here's a little of what you found when you went into the crowd. if it is proven he committed the crime he should go to jail like anybody else. >> if he let alone a supreme court judge. >> i think he has perjured himself, as far as i know that is a crime in and of itself. and could lock him up. brian: is that pretty much what you got? >> yeah. it's amazing. they want to lock him up. we find out from the latest fbi c x that ther conclusion tho corroborating of evidence, zero. zoich. they still wants to lock up an innocent man. the idea that presumption of innocence is dead in this country or only applies to certain few is extremely scary to me. part of that crowd seeing the thousands of people marching, i mean, they are so upset. the passions, of course, are

running high. we have the celebrities out there. and, at the end of the day, this has nothing to do with judge brett kavanaugh. this is all about resisting president trump. our duly elected president. brian: chanting, i believe, dr. ford i believe anita hill. they are going all the way back to the 1990s. why not? they are investigating him from the 1980s. big picture there is a vote today and vote saturday in theory. do you look for the tensions to rise? >> oh, absolutely. i mean, i don't think this battle is over. and despite what we have now know again about judge brett kavanaugh, look, his name is going to be tainted near for the rest of his life. when you google search him, you will always find that. and, you know, this is an innocent man with a family. an impeccable reputation. brian: gotcha. >> it's awful what's happened to him. brian: right. is he going to need security no matter what happens to him from here on him. stephanie hammel, thanks so much. appreciate it here we are coming up straight ahead.

what is happening in washington, d.c. coming up in 15 minutes we will talk to some of these people who have had mimosas and i know it's a little early. [laughter] anyway, it's friday, right? ainsley: they said, steve, every day is a friday. we don't even know what day of the week it is. steve: listen, the villages is great. brian: by the way, steve, so glad you are in florida. so much of what happens with brett kavanaugh is going to maybe decide the senate race as well as the governor race. anybody understands what florida means for 2020 let alone 2018. three minutes after the hour. we do know. this there will be a senate vote for cloture. it will be at 10:30. at:30. the senate will get together today. so just about a half hour after we are done. at 11:00, they expect to have it done. now, the question is, if word gets out, leadership, that murkowski is not aboard. that collins is not a board. flake is on the fence, do you still have that vote?
4:04 am
they're holding their cards tight with us. are they holding it tight with leadership? ainsley: there is no way march afternoon is not going to vote yes. he is in a very close race. up for re-election. that is trump territory. west virginia. pete: he voted for gulch. i don't think we can pu -- there are some senators that could conceivable bailiff say i'm going to vote for cloture because i want the debate to happen, want the vote to happen. doesn't necessarily mean they vote yea on saturday afternoon. these two votes are important. likely i think the cloture happens. then we have got a 30 hours of lunancy on the senate floor, i'm sure. because that's what's it's been so far is a circus. it will likely continue to i do involve in that direction. as you pointed out, there are four senators everyone is looking at. looks like jeff flake is a yes. it there had to be corroborating evidence in that fbi report there was none. looks like is he probably a yes. susan collins likely yes.
4:05 am
his is murkowski a big toss-up -- ainsley: joe manchin as we discussed in west virginia, i personally think he is a yes. do you agree? pete: i don't think we can know. ainsley: is he going to wait until the 11th hour to do it because he doesn't want to be the deciding vote. steve: h steve: steve he has vote. pete: he has been all over the map. brian: voting for gulch like adding in runs with the 11-0 lead. if you are saying murkowski and collins are out. joe manchin is not going to step up. he is not going to deliver -- he is not going to deliver kavanaugh. he would support kavanaugh if kavanaugh is delivered. unless he is going to do something he hasn't done before. pete: what a model of courage. brian: i'm not saying he isn't capable of doing it but he hasn't done it yet. however, for joe manchin, if
4:06 am
he does do that and stares down his party and says this guy has too much going for him and 90% of west virginians support kavanaugh. i'm from west virginia. so, therefore, i'm going to do it. joe manchin would set himself up as one of the most powerful people in washington over the next six years because in theory, he would get those six years. pete: you don't want it to be about politics but we all know it becomes that at the very end. lisa murkowski did vote for gulch but voted against sotomayor and kagan. so far has voted along party lines. a lot of those as we pointed out votes were 60-30 votes. few votes either way didn't matter. this is going to be 50-50. ainsley: vote for cloture that prevents democrats from being able to filibuster. then for the next 30 hours they are going to be debating. will would he be age to see that. pete: of course it will be on the senate floor.
4:07 am
ainsley: all 30 hours? pete: you think the rhetoric is hot already we played some of these clips. it's going to get hotter. brian: deborah ramirez team is not happy. they feel as though the fbi did not follow the leads they wanted to on the ramirez team. ramirez is the yale student featured in the new yorker article in the story that wasn't good enough for the "new york times" because it couldn't be corroborated. they now said i gave the fbi 20 names to follow up on. they only followed up with two. the ford team is not happy because they wanted to the turn over notes and wanted additional information. and wanted to further explain why no one could corroborate their story. she goes no one could because they didn't tell nibble. she did tell leland, who is the golfer, who doesn't have emotional problems. she had physical problems. who can't corroborate the story, period. both those sides feel as though they were short-changed by the fbi and so does every democrat. brian: fb democrat.brian. pete: a lot of republicans including jeff flake as we
4:08 am
mentioned came out of that and said there is nothing here. no evidence presented through this investigation that corroborates that are mere allegations and as a result has said he feels like brett kavanaugh is qualified. democrats came out of that very same room looking at that very same document with predictably some different conclusion. this is democrats slamming the fbi yesterday. >> the investigation was very limited. >> this report is blatantly and clearly incomplete. >> our fears have been realized. our fears have been realized. this is not a floor row investigation. >> in your view, is this a wholesome and credible investigation? >> it's obviously a coverup. pete: is it ever going to be good enough? brian: how about senator feinstein i wanted to see a real investigation. if you told us in june about this story we would have had at least a month. if you told us in august about this story we would have had six weeks. instead, you give people six seconds and you pretend as if this leak didn't come from your staff or somebody
4:09 am
that you are associated with and for dr. ford, why she isn't more curious than anybody else for someone blowing her cover because she wanted to remain anonymous. according to her testimony, this is her worst case scenario. she doesn't even seem curious about what went on. interesting story now, one of our future guests who is coming up shortly, senator grassley, wrote a letter to christine ford's legal team. turn over the communications with democrats. and other kavanaugh accusers. so i guess he is finding that there is some type of collusion between dems and ford and maybe. pete: lot of evidence of that different ways in which there appears to have been coordination. who paid for the all the preparation that went along. ainsley: why didn't her attorneys tell dr. ford that they were willing to go out to california to meet with her. she didn't know any of that information. pete: part of this debate democrats being confronted in elevators and republicans being confronted in elevators. a lot of times they back
4:10 am
down. one. ainsley: jefjeff flake and/or written hatch. brian: one senator took our eye when he was confronted he took a bit of a different approach. watch orrin hatch from utah. >> don't wave your hand at me. i wave my hand at you. >> when you grow up -- >> -- when i grow up. [shouting] >> how dare you talk to women that way. ainsley: at first she says don't wave your hand at me. i wave my hand at you. -like i'm the only one allowed to you do that then he says grow up. and she says you grow up. how dare you talk to a woman that way. come on. brian: then at the end he waved goodbye out of the elevator. you yell at me that way i yell back at you. point your finger at me and i point finger back at you and in the end invoke gender in the level of identified at this politics and absurdity if you are a certain category can you do certain things and another category ca you cannot. that's a very dangerous world to live. in that's what orrin hatch
4:11 am
was waving goodbye to. stand up and take a vote. brian: senator cassidy yelled back lindsey graham fought back and now happen has fought back that's after jeff flake didn't. jillian meally nothing to fight about with you. jillian: i'm not going to fight at all. i'm just hear to make peace. is that cool? we do have a fox news alert. a story we have been following out of chicago a search for a possible serial killer intensifies. there is $10,000 reward for whoever can help get this masked man behind bars. police say he shot and killed two people at point blank range in the span of 36 hours. the first victim a 73-year-old man walking his dog. another killed just blocks away and the scariest part as of right now, police say the shooting appears to be random. a lawyer working for hillary clinton's campaign and the dnc gave the fbi documents on the russia probe in 2016, that's according to new testimony from former fbi official james baker. a lawyer for the perkins couey firm provided documents and devices related to russian hacking. couey was a key player in funding the anti-trump

4:17 am
and my guess is that they have been getting push back from some of the senators about the tone of some of what he said and he was trying to find a way to say, look, there was a unique moment in my life. my family and i have been smeared. and attacked. and you are right, i was emotional because, frankly. i deeply bitterly resented my daughters and my wife being subject to this. but, on balance, my entire career as a judge has shown that i'm very, very neutral. very focused on the law. and very reliable. and i think that's what he is trying to get across. and i think it's because, you know, when the democrats failed on attacks him over sex. they switched to attacking him over drinking. when that started to fail, they switched to attacking him over his temperament. and so in a sense. he is playing whack amole and he is answering the latest democratic attempt --
4:18 am
brian: we will see it comes down to lisa murkowski, joseph flake and susan collins. how is it that collins and flake came out and said they were happy with the investigation in their own way and how significant is it that murkowski didn't and met with women's groups throughout the day? >> well, look, i used to be speaker of the house. not leader of the senate. so, i'm always a little careful about my good friends across the way in the senate, but, i think it's very important to remember that every senator has the right to change their mind at any time. and verizons it on occasion. so, i will tell you, for me, personally, i am going to feel better after the vote. i'm not going to presume i know better going in. i'm not going to try to read tea leaves. i do think obviously it was better that senator flake and senator collins said there is no corroboration.
4:19 am
in the new fbi report. it would have been much worse if they would have walked out and said boy that sure corroborates the story. no corroboration is a yes vote. i used to be the whip in the house. if they don't say yes, they didn't say yes. so, you have four will he legite votes out there that are trying to decide what they are going to do. i think senator murkowski is torn. i think she genuinely wants to be responsive to those women who feel offended but she also genuinely wants to be responsive to the facts and to justice to a nominee one of the most important decisions she will make in her career. that's why you see her going through these meetings. senator collins had a very clear sense, this is my reading where susan was. she had a very clear sense of what she wanted looked at. and a sense that they have done it senator flake, frankly, i think and i don't think it was necessarily bad to buy a week little
4:20 am
decompression and even though you have schumer and others fromently saying oh, it wasn't enough. for most americans. one additional fbi report begins to be pretty definitive. so, i think that the original charges have now been pretty clearly debunked. and if i were betting, i think it will all work out. but, boy, i don't know how senator mcconnell fields, but i would sure feel a lot better after the vote. i don't want to jump in this morning and have a sense of victory yet. pete: spoken by somebody who has had to count many votes in your life. you weren't on the senate side. that's a great break down of the vote. thank you, senator for your time this morning. >> thank you. brian: 45 pages of interview. 65 extra pages of tips all included in that report. ainsley: look at the screen, brian. look who is coming up? brian: senator chuck grassley has been front and center on the confirmation process. the senator joins us next.

4:25 am
don't know and i don't think anybody else does. brian: the cloture vote will that likely pass because that's not the final vote and the one up for grabs is the big one? >> i think you are going to find both votes about the same for everybody. ainsley: senator, how do we not know how jeff flake and susan collins, murkowski and manchin are going to vote? i don't understand why they are not saying? are they waiting until the very end because they don't want to be swayed by their voters? what more information do they need? we already have the fbi report. why don't we know how they are going to vote? >> because they are very personal, very quiet about it and i think that they want -- legitimately i found myself in the same position. you want to make sure before you make a final decision, you want your constituents to know that you are very thoughtful about it and what might come up new. they are going to wait in the last minute. i have been in that same position. so i'm not going to hold it against them for not announcing ahead of time.
4:26 am
brian: we will see where that goes. murkowski wants to go back and see more. doesn't feel as though she had enough time. so does manchin, i think. when you look at this. the democrats are lined up almost in unison outside of manchin saying this is a sham. menendez uses an explicative saying it's all b.s. despite the thousand pages and the multiple interviews. are you surprised that the people that demanded one week for an evaluation last week are saying it's not enough this week? >> not only that but during our last hearing, they said we ought to be having the fbi look at one person, only one person. ended up looking at about 12 people. but they need to look at this guy, his last name is judge. they went way beyond that they aren't satisfied. they are always moving the goal post. i think you have got to go back to july the 10th. when schumer said he is going to do anything under the sun to defeat this nomination. i have been trying to have a fair and thorough and open
4:27 am
hearing and i think we have done exactly that to get everything out on the tape. and i have been dealing with a demolition derby on the part of the democrats where they have been out to do everything they can to defeat him. and one of the things you would think that they would be concentrating on is he qualified to come o to be on the court. 12 years on the d.c. circuit. 307 decisions. what is there about this person that he shouldn't be on the supreme court. no, his qualifications have not been at issue. everything that's been at issue is secondary things. ainsley: senator, what do you think about protesters attacking your colleagues in elevators. orrin happen and jef hatch and . >> i think it's a reflection of the incivility of american society generally and i think it's also

evidence that people will go to any length when they are encouraged by people on capitol hill like one congresswoman saying confront them in the restrooms. go up and another senator saying get in their face. we as senators ought to be setting examples for civility, not encouraging incivility. you've heard about the resistance since november 2016. you are seeing the reisis resistance headquarters right here on capitol hill all among democrats. pete: would any of your democratic colleagues admit that? you say we have gone too far? heat too high. this never happened to elena kagan and sotomayor in the hallways. >> don't forget, there are some people on the right that get overly ambitious and vicious as well. we here on capitol hill,
4:29 am
have to set an example for civility. brian: right. senator, chairman, understand that lee land kaiser, the former friend of dr. ford feels pressure to revisit other denial of knowing about the alleged assault back in 10th grade. how do you feel about her saying that she feels pressured by democrats to change her story? >> there is evidence -- i can't speak about it because it's in the fbi report. but there is evidence about other people that have been questioned that they were led into it as well. this is another example of headquarters for the resistance being right here on capitol hill. >> and do you believe that there is a problem with debra -- dr. ford's collaboration with the democratic party. what paperwork do you want to see that you haven't seen yet? what do you need to see in terms of the communication?
4:30 am
>> polygraph. other things that she talked about to "the washington post." if she can talk to the "the washington post" about it, she ought to talk to us. but, let's get back to the willegitimacy of ford coming forward. if she was -- she was assaulted, i believe she was assaulted. there is no corroboration about her judgment that it was judge kavanaugh, but have you got to take sexual assault accusations very seriously. we don't do that enough in american society. and this -- whether ford is right about judge kavanaugh or not, the fact that we had a bringing to people's attention the major social problem we have about sexual assault, that is at least one good accomplished by dr. ford coming forward even even though she wanted anonymity and even though senator feinstein or other democrats on the committee
4:31 am
didn't protect her confidentiality. ainsley: thank you for taking that seriously, senator. well, good luck today. pete: appreciate your time, thank you. ainsley: thank you very much. brian: straight ahead. ainsley: counselor to the president kellyanne is going to join us live next. pete: steve is still having breakfast with the friends live at the villages in florida. ainsley: beautiful. steve: it is beautiful. the sun has come um. the people have come out. we are at r.j. gators. every day is saturday here in the villages. but it's tgif. it's thank goodness it's fox. we will talk with those folks about kavanaugh, the news of the day and who thinks the economy is roaring? coming up next live from florida.

4:36 am
come on saturday. you are on the inside. handicap where we are right now with those key votes. >> you heard chairman grassley and i like to echo some of what he said that the process has been thorough. it's gone on much longer and much deeper than any supreme court justice in modern history if not ever and now it's time to vote. i won't get ahead of those senators who truly seem to be grappling with their decision. i would point out what several of those senators have requested has been done. we had rachel mitchell from arizona. jeff flake's home state highly regarded sex crimes prosecutor. doing the questioning on behalf of the republicans on the senate judiciary committee. she then came out with a five-page memo saying she could never even bring charges let alone successfully prosecute a case like this based on what she had reviewed. we had the investigation and having completed the seventh investigation of brett kavanaugh in his adult life, including two this very calendar year. one completed in july.
4:37 am
one completed just this week all of the questions have been answered. many all of the people are thumping their chest and stomping their feet. we must have an fbi investigation. it won't take that long critical to our vote. now they have it. it will never be enough for them. i'm the first person to have said two and a half weeks ago. let this woman be heard. we did hear her. we heard her for hours under oath. we heard from the people who said could corroborate what she alleges happened 36 years as. ladies and gentlemen, don't forget that we have also heard from judge kavanaugh 33 hours originally, 1200 written responses to questions over 1 million pieces of paper produced over his career. and people who are so angry and chasing down senators in the halls and screaming their heads off as if those men have personally and individually wronged them, they don't even stop and think about the 28 years of public service of judge
4:38 am
kavanaugh. female. all of them are standing by them. not all of them voted for donald trump. the president nominated brett kavanaugh. let me say something about those who are angry. i respect the fact that i live in a country where we can disagree. they are not disagreeing. they're trying to destroy. this is acrimony and anger that didn't metastasize three weeks ago. some of these women have been working on this and marinating in it for years. chasing down orrin hatch and chuck grassley did. they individually wrong these women? they can't be held responsible for whatever man or men have wronged these women chasing people out of restaurants. brian: republicans are not chasing down democrats. ainsley: no. brian: the other way around. has been regarding the issue. real quick. we are trying to find out how these four are going to vote. you brought up an interesting point in the break about senator jeff flake. there might be some type of connection. he has always been a conservative even though he
4:39 am
has been at odds with president trump. there might be a connection between the prosecutor, mitchell, who asked the questions. and came to those conclusions. that there was a lot of holes in the story that couldn't prosecute dr. ford's case. and how flake goes. in what way? >> no. the only thing i was saying that rachel mitchell the sex crimes prosecutor the republicans of the judiciary committee asked to stand in for them and pose the questions to dr. ford and she did. and i thought she did a great job in so doing. i'm sure that senator flake is familiar with her and her work. because is he a long-time congressman and senator representing the state of arizona. but, the most important thing about senator flake and i respect that he is grappling with this decision and i appreciate the integrity and dignity in which he has approached this process. the thing about senator flake is, one short week ago, he announced that he was going to vote for judge kavanaugh. and he did to get judge kavanaugh out of committee. remember, that vote happened a week ago. that vote stands. he advanced from the senate
4:40 am
judiciary committee, including with an affirmative vote from senator flake. what changed is he was approached or confronted in the he will varied by these women who i said god bless them for coming forward but also, they need to feel that anger toward their individual perpetrators, not towards senators unconnected completely from the awful things that have happened to them in the past. but senator flake already has made joyful noises about supporting judge kavanaugh to the united states supreme court. he asked for the supplemental investigation by the fbi u and it was senator flake who said no longer than one week. and all of that has come to pass. so, now he will announce his decision. i think the wild card here is also senator joe manchin from west virginia. a state where the vast majority of the people who voted him in to office have said they also want judge kavanaugh confirmed to the supreme court. do you listen to the will of your voters back at home or do you listen to the leaders of a democratic party who have been so dishonest and do you police tis i do you poli.
4:41 am
they wanted testimony and they got it they wanted supplemental fbi investigation they got it has a single democrat changed his or her mind based on everything that they have asked for and have received? and let me tell you one more thing, every way that donald trump, my boss and our president is described by the mainstream media is exactly how the crazy left is acting describe him as fuming and angry and isolated and throwing things. he is not that way at all. i'm with him every day. the way they behave will not ending with the confirmation of judge kavanaugh. people have seen, they have been watching. it's why there is more enthusiasm now on the republican side. they are so appalled at the treatment of one man who has had 28 years in public service and an impeccable record to serve in the united states supreme court. search and destroy is exactly the way not advice and consent. ainsley: so much hypocrisy. women getting in faces.
4:42 am
they are using gender to get their points across. but, yet, they're are the running attacking men in the elevator and yelling at them. how dare you talk to a woman that way. it's dangerous. >> ainsley let's say as americans and moms, terrific that lots of women are coming forward. >> correct. >> they want to tell their stories. they need to be heard, but why just in the context of this supreme court hearing for this man based on 36 years old allegations that are still uncorroborated to this moment? if you want -- if we want to help women, sexual assault victims, let's do it. but i didn't see nancy pelosi doing much about it when she was speaker. i certainly didn't hear much about it in the 2016 election with queen bee talking about donald trump and all assorted of nonsense that was rejected by the voters. in fact, i don't hear about the hillary clinton center for women and girls now two years later. the bill clinton senator center for women and girls might be a more interesting endeavor. hillary clinton center for women and girls. where is that? she is still talking about
4:43 am
the 2016 election. of the hypocrisy of even trying to help women who have been harmed by the left is so -- it's so perverted of and subverted now. i feel sorry for these women they are trying to get satisfaction republican senators confirmation hearing through the united states supreme court that they ant rah parentsly can't get through the party otherwise. thank you so much. >> thank you. brian: exciting day. convene at 9:30. convene by 11:00. by the way steve is having breakfast with his friends and our friends live at the villages. steve, how many selfies have you taken? o good. get the recipes at walnuts.org.

of an incomplete investigation that was limited, perhaps by the white house. democrats agreed that the investigation scope should be limited. we do not agree that the white house should tie the fbi's hands. pete: that was dianne feinstein on thursday, yesterday. senate democrats blasting the fbi investigation that they asked for into allegations against brett kavanaugh, saying it's still not enough. this as you know is the seventh such investigation so what more could democrats conceivably need. here to weigh in is the senior advisor to independent women's forum. answer that question. is there anything more that could conceivably be delivered that would satisfy democrats? >> hi, good morning. actually, the short answer to that is no. i really don't think there is anything more that could be delivered. this has been a calculated campaign from the beginning of july. to do whatever they can to make sure that judge
4:55 am
kavanaugh is not going to be given a seat on the supreme court. but, unfortunately, i think they are running out of tactics and hopefully, after tomorrow's vote, they will have run out of time. pete: you are referring to the fact in july chuck schumer said we will do anything to defeat this nominee. his record was clear and strong. but they went after alleged assault and drinking and temperament. they have used every last one. then they got an additional fbi investigation. do you think -- do the voters see through this and realize it's a resistance effort? has this just clearly along partisan lines is how you see it playing out? >> you know, unfortunately, i do. and some may say that's a cynical way of looking at things. but i think it's become very political. and the intent of this campaign has become very transparent now. and i think folks across the country are very well aware that they are just trying to continually move the goal post and keep bret off the supreme court. pete: someone on part of the independent women's forum.

the issue of sexual assault is a serious one. a discussion has been had with that but do you feel like women have been -- some have been used, others have been made to think they think one way? i mean, how do we have both a fair assessment of judge kavanaugh and also an understanding that we can talk about alleged sexual assaulted as well? >> well, you know what? you are absolutely right. sexual assault is a huge and serious issue. and victims, survivors need to be heard. but, because you are willing to hear you are willing to come forward, just because you are a woman that by no means prejudges one's opinion. as women, we need to be able to consider the facts and make our own determination and i think that's what's gotten lost. pete: it really has. it's such a great point. andrea bottomner. thank you for the points this morning. >> thank you. pete: big final hour ahead. geraldo rivera, mike huckabee. tammy bruce. steve has a big surprise have you never seen before down at the villages. stick around. don't miss it.

5:03 am
there will be a lot of very distressing rhetoric on both sides. i think both sides are extremely shocked by the the savage nature of this process when all said and done, battered, tainted, smeared pretty kavanaugh will be the next supreme court jurist. pete: earlier on the program we have chuck grassley measured inside the hurricane, we asked him about the cloture vote and vote will both be close. this is senator chuck grassley. >> i've been dealing with a demolition derby on the part of the democrats where they have been out to do everything they can to defeat him and one of the things you would think they would be concentrating on, is he qualified to be on the court? 12 years on the d.c. circuit court. 307 decisions. what is there about this person that he shouldn't be on the supreme court? no, his qualifications have not been an issue.

everything that has been an issue is secondary things. pete: geraldo almost none of this is about his judicial qualification. >> of course not, pete. this is always been about this being the swing vote, the 5-4 vote. it was war. been selling that to anyone who would listen for weeks now. this is war, in war you win by any means necessary. they seized on the sex assault allegations from the remote past it. could have been anything. he could have had a dui. he spread malignant sore toes, could have been anything, they would have seized on it because they know that the ninth jurist could affect american life for a generation on issues like roe v. wade. brett kavanaugh in many ways was collateral damage. the fact that his family was traumatized the way they are were --

5:07 am
in the d.c. circuit court that was offensive or anti-constitutional. this is all about politics. i would have preferred merrick garland on the high court, i'm a pro-choice person. i believe elections have consequences. trump through won the election. he gets the right to nominate the candidate for the supreme court. republicans control majority in the united states senate. they get to confirm the nominee if they so choose. that is the way the constitution works. there is nothing in brett kavanaugh's record that would disqualify him. i think this will be a sobering moment and pivotal moment in american history. ainsley: you talk about getting in people's faces at the restaurant. you mentioned ted cruz. we have seen it jeff flake being approached in the elevator. he decided he wanted that fbi investigation. i think that is why kavanaugh wrote the op-ed in "the wall street journal" this morning, jeff flake was saying i like him, i would probably react the same way if i were wrongly
5:08 am
accused. i didn't like his tone. in the op-ed writes, i was very emotional, i might have been too emotional, i testified with five people foremost in my mind, my dad, my mom, my wife and my children. we saw orrin hatch approached by women. we have a clip of that watch this, we'll get your reaction. >> i waved my hand at you. >> when you grow up -- >> you grow up. >> how dare you talk to women that way. ainsley: she pulls the woman card, how dare you talk to a woman that way. meanwhile she is the one in his face. >> isn't it sad, ainsley. what we've lost is any kind of you know, manner. ainsley: civility. >> civilized conduct. this is so beyond the pale. this is has nothing to do with brett kavanaugh with what he did as junior in georgetown prep. this has to do with this war,

absent corroborating evidence. he said for these reasons he said because the rule of law is dependent on innocent until proven guilty, absent corroborating evidence i will vote to confirm judge kavanaugh. that is what jeff flake himself said a week ago. brian: keep in mind, jeff flake's main problem with the tone and tenor of donald trump, we know that. brett kavanaugh is a bush guy. brett kavanaugh would have been supported by his idol, john mccain. brett kavanaugh, people got mad at president trump going too traditional, too mainstream republican with this safe pick. jeff flake would have to go against himself to vote against this. murkowski is moderate. collins is moderate. i never label jeff flake as moderate. >> before forget collins and murkowski were not yes a month ago. in private kavanaugh convinced them that he believed roe v. wade was settled law. pro-choice republicans and
5:20 am
murkowski and collins seemed to be assuaged and concerned. it's a whole different ball game, in the end, collins and murkowski are important but it comes down to jeff flake. pete: got it. we'll follow the cloture vote in two hours. >> maybe two hours. 10:30 eastern roughly, give or take. brian: big risk by blue or red state democrats, when donnelly said good-bye. tester said i'm not going to do it, heidi heitkamp, said i'm out. only democrat standing is manchin. >> what grassley told you last hour is news. look in the fbi report can't get into details there are multiple of occasions people on the anti-kavanaugh side trying to change witness's testimony. that's incredible. brian: fbi didn't follow suggested lead on ramirez and others -- >> fbi saying investigation is a sham when they have been going after president trump about the fbi, come on.

5:27 am
out of their lethargy. how they are going to go vote i think in the biggest record turnout because they have truly seen what the left is all about. it is not about justice. it is not about the protecting women. it is about exploiting women for their own political purposes. people are sick of the destruction of brett kavanaugh's life and, they realize that this is not a government we want. we don't want schumer, pelosi, maxine waters running anything. ainsley: it wasorg smallly alleged sexual abuse. then on thinks drinking and throwing ice and in college and his tone and temperment. nancy pelosi comparing judge kavanaugh to vladmir putin and kim jong-un. listen to this. >> he talks about being in love with kim jong-un and thinking kavanaugh is a great guy up standing this or that, i guess there is similarity that people
5:28 am
have with the people that they respect. crazy about putin in love with kim jong-un. thinks kavanaugh is a great, up standing person. you know what? he doesn't even know what he is talking about. ainsley: governor, why can't the democrat accept he is probably going to be the nominee or going to be voted in? >> ainsley the reason is because they have not accepted the results of the 2016 election. the heart of this conflict is not about christine blasey ford. it is not about brett kavanaugh. it is about the fact that they were so convinced that hillary clinton was going to be president and she's not, they can't accept the results and, let me be very clear. forget the politics of this, forget the winning and losing, we pose a true existential threat to our constitutional republic when the losing side of an election refuses to accept the results and instead tries to overturn it by any and every means possible including taking
5:29 am
to the streets and screaming at people and threatening them with physical violence? the pendulum will swing back and forth between the left and the right, but when the pendulum become as wrecking ball and destroys the constitutional due process we're no longer talking about winning and losing elections. we're talking about losing our country, our constitutional republic and our way of life. i don't mean to be melodramatic. but i'm serious. this is what this is about the. let's not forget it. brian: you predicted at start of the segment that he would start but people we don't know how they will do, flake, murkowski, collins and manchin. they want to go back and finish reading the report. they can't leave with it. pete: they have an hour 1/2 to do that. thank you, governor huckabee. >> how does flake not do this? how does he say give me a week and then he comes back and says i didn't see any corroborating evidence. then he votes no, how does he do
5:30 am
that? ainsley: because he was saying tone. he said he didn't like his tone. >> only if he is simply applying for a job on one of the liberal networks and hopes they will love him, but he will find out they don't love him. they use him, exploit him, don't really care for him. that would be unfortunate. it would be a tragedy for the country. a president has the right to nominate who he wishes to be on the supreme court. the role of the senate is advise and consent. they have done that, and time to recognize this is a qualified person and they should confirm him. pete: we'll be watching. governor mike huckabee. thank you very much. ainsley: thank you, governor. >> great to be with you guys. pete: aclu comparing judge kavanaugh to convicted felon bill cosby in this ad. doesn't that group defend due process. tammy bruce used to be on the left not anymore. she is fired up. brian: steve is live in the villages in florida. he is about to make

5:36 am
op-ed i think was, he is serious about wanting this job. he said he is not going to withdraw of course. but, i think that op-ed was aimed at a few people. many people said he shouldn't have done it, right? i stated any normal person would react the same way being accused something horrific which you are innocent. pete: even jeff flake acknowledged for that week. if i was innocent i would have said the same thing. >> i think honestly something that probably, even surprised him. it is not his normal approach and he, you know, acknowledged that. at the same time, there is an attitude regarding what is judicial temperament? judges sometimes can have a temper and they react to certain things on the bench. the judicial temperment how you make your decisions and what your decisions are. ainsley: everybody was critical of him on fox news a few days before the hearing because they said he wasn't strong enough. he goes into the hearing, we want him to be really strong, he

does that. people criticize him. >> the rule in life in general is to be yourself, to be a decent person, in ourselves, we're a spectrum of reactions to things. it is normal to have passion. no, it is important not to adjust your sell to placate people. think the op-ed is the national position. brian: fox news alert concerns everyone in america, unemployment rate, this just in, it is now at 3.7%. we were at a 49-year low in terms of unemployment. this continues to drop. we're almost at full employment in this country. >> what is extraordinary about president trump's term here so far is the american people have been so engaged. we were told it would create world war iii and everything was going to go to hell. all americans remained engaged. they found out they were being lied to by a certain sector of politicians and politics and their instinct was correct.

5:39 am
being devolveed into effectively a chant at a rally. these are serious issues for americans. i think that americans have decided that judge kavanaugh can be trusted and the senate, we're going to see hopefully reflect that understanding that this whole dynamic was a circus and we're tired of it. pete: call it the kavanaugh effect t could be a big part of the midterm elections. >> we're seeing those numbers change as well. brian: tammy, don't ever change personally. >> i won't. i think i'm pretty darn honest. people are not liking that so much. brian: i think you're honest when you say that. >> i am. thank you. brian: i would hike to go toutsteve doocy right now. ainsley: steve is surprising someone this morning. tell us all about it. steve: you know we got this book, my wife and i came out this week, number one cookbook in the world right now. we decided since it is breakfast time. we would make breakfast for a fox super fan. we believe that they live in this house behind us. we don't know that they're home

pressured to change her story by some of ford's allies, possibly democrats. joining us is harvard law professor emeritus, author of the case against impeaching trump, alan dershowitz. >> the phoniest argument they didn't interview her. she under oath testified. fbi background checks don't repeat what happened previously. the two people they didn't interview the people who testified. their job was to find corroboration or lack of corroboration. if she has additional witnesses she should have them putting out statements, sworn statements under oath. then we can evaluate those. but, right now, i think the argument that she wasn't interviewed is absurd one. what would she do, change her testimony? she cannot help herself. she can only hurt herself to by changing testimony. brian: ernest attempt to delay. >> ernest attempt to delay. brian: two scenarios, one he passes, what happens, and one he

doesn't, what happens? >> i have no idea what impact it will have on the election. brian: changes the court. >> it changes the court, but changes the court less than if he doesn't get confirmed and president trump appoints somebody even further to the right. that is not what this is about. the court will be changed. that's the reality of a presidential election. the question is now, all about, whether we allow a nominee to be discredited without hard proof, hard evidence, and whether or not this establishes as precedent to the future where nobody is going to want to serve on the bench. the idea that he can't teach at harvard now because he was suspected? when i was growing up in brooklyn college at student, they fired professors because they were suspected maybe being communists when they were in their 20s. suspicion was enough. this kind of sexual mccarthy system a terrible, terrible precedent. look, women being assaulted a horrible, horrible thing but
5:49 am
women making up stories of the way at least one witness may well have made up a story out of whole cloth, that is a serious matter too. we have to look into all of these issues. this is a teaching moment and i hope we learn the right thing from this teaching moment. look i'm not advocate for this nomination. i would not have nominated kavanaugh. my candidate would have been merrick garland this is for me not about whether the my choice gets on the supreme court. it is about whether the process of confirmation is forever destroyed and it is in the process of being destroyed. brian: good point, professor. thank you. ainsley: steve is making breakfast for our super fans down in florida. we'll check back in with them next. first, check in with sandra smith, what is coming coming ups hour. i sense you do a lot kavanaugh. >> you know what? there will be a bit of that coming up next few hours. big morning. the first vote to confirm brett kavanaugh to the supreme court is over one hour away.
