7:10 pm
a calvinist nomination the democrat who wanted an f.b.i. investigation into allegations of sexual abuse against cavanagh were furious. and the corridors outside the atmosphere was feeble and then a moment that may alter history senator jeff flake who had just declared his backing for cover. confronted by a sexual abuse survivor. i didn't tell anyone in your telling all women for that matter that he should just stay quiet and. don't tell me that my beloved i did not or don't want me don't think. that your don't let. down. hours later the republican senator was back in committee and had found his voice offering to back the controversial nominee under one condition. i think it would be. proper to
7:11 pm
delay the floor vote. for up to but not more than one week in order to let the f.b.i. . continue to do an investigation limited in time and scope. with not dramatic compromise another flare up in the room and perhaps the country had been a vast today but it still needed the backing of one man i guess the vote was a positive vote but there seems to be a delay learn more about it goes the day goes on i just heard about it because we were together we're working late are ordered an f.b.i. investigation. of the boy was he left work flake took the underground exit away from the public eye the end of the day of reckoning. that footage of republican senator jeff flake being cornered by two women in a lift is really resonating with women and men across social media it led to some
7:12 pm
its affiliates insisting on an f.b.i. investigation into the allegations against covering though and my colleague on your back you know now joins me for more so i mean first of all thanks for joining me but what is it about what these two women did that has caught people's attention what you just simply the guts it took to stop a u.s. senator in his tracks for about five minutes and make him listen i mean he certainly didn't look like he wanted to be there he was extremely uncomfortable and they made him stop and listen to them now the two women ana maria killa and maria gallagher they were both tearful they were both angry and they pleaded with flake to reconsider his decision to vote for cavanagh and what really hit home with people was how roll their emotions was anna-maria killer set off to woods i wanted him to feel my right each and mary gallagher demond that he looked her in the i when she was talking to him so literally demanding look at me and listen to me.
7:13 pm
it was really powerful and very personal stuff of course there has been a whole load of reaction on social media both positive and negative we're going to have a little look at that right now we'll start with the positives and the many expressions of gratitude that people have tweeted this man in germany said maria gallagher and ana maria killa the women who confronted jeff flake the only here is here they are representing everything that is good in this world their bravest hell and i am grateful beyond gratitude and then me here from this woman in hollywood who wrote to fab girls mary gallagher and ana maria killa they caroll jeff flake in an elevator with their voices on the. stories they urged him to stop cavanagh the magic of girl power and then there was a guy from washington d.c. who wrote i won't celebrate jeff flake for acting to delay the floor vote i'll
7:14 pm
celebrate the bravery of maria gallagher and anna maria killer for confronting senator flake with their own stories of assault and demond ing. and of course there were some people who impressed by what they did. there was a twenty one year old american man who saw it very differently he wrote jeff flake he got her wrist today and manipulated by a protester in the elevator this was no random protest this was a young lady who's at the top of an organization that george soros heavily funds you can't make this up. and with that he was alleging that the center for popular democracy which anna-maria kilo one of the women is the co executive director of and the man who tweeted that is suggesting that that's funded by the billion billionaire philanthropist george soros who is of course well known for his anti trump views but i think what has really caught people's attention here is you know
