their story about keeping a bombshell piece on jeffrey epstein off the air for ethical reasons. and explanation that came after anchor amy roback was caught on a hot mike saying the opposite. >> i had the story for three years and had this interview with virginia roberts, they would not put it on the air. they said no one knows who jeffrey epstein is, this is a stupid story. then found out we had her whole allegations and threatened us 1 million different ways. it was unbelievable. we had everything. rob: this is something else. the epstein story did not meet abc standards three years ago, why did they run with the other stories like all the unfounded claims against brett kavanaugh? joining us live is the president of district media group beverly hallberg. let's look at how abc covered brett kavanaugh.
>> a detailed, moving account of brett kavanaugh's attack. did brett kavanaugh sexually assault her or physically harm her in any way? >> embedded supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh fighting to save his nomination and his name. rob: completely unconfirmed claims against brett kavanaugh versus what we saw was jeffrey epstein, this is something else. carley: this continues to come out, a lot of people saying abc news has been hypocritical as you mentioned. they say does not adhere to journalistic standards. they had no problems smearing brett kavanaugh when they didn't have corroborating evidence. the question is why? part of it is ties to epstein, the clintons, stephanopoulos, the story will unfold and we will learn more. carley: abc news release a statement of fox saying not all the reporting met our standards to air but we never never
stopped investigating the story. but then you listen to amy roback saying we had pictures, we had all these ties to the clintons and they were concerned about the palace getting involved. do you think abc news was trying to cover the story up? >> absolutely. i don't think this is purely about money but power. she was you heard in the video just baffled at the amount of information she had and couldn't believe they didn't come forward. here is the other side. not only that they didn't come forward in the three years they had this information but they are not even reporting it today. they haven't put out a statement saying very much. they are not putting it in their news coverage. this is a major story. they are still trying to hide it. carley: talk about the palace stuff, prince andrew involved and everyone wanting access, talk about will and kate but three years ago hillary clinton was running for president in
this country, bill clinton is off on an island with jeffrey epstein, that changes and election. that is a huge story. >> that is why there are so many elements to this. don't underestimate the clintons. a lot of it has to do with power and not wanting to get the story out. you see what hillary clinton said about tulsi gabbard. the clintons have a lot of ties and they think the story adds more to do with them than abc news and money. carley: i don't understand their explanation that the story wasn't ready for reporting because so often that side of the story and leave it there. >> if i could make a contrast, when you look at the book that came out, the women in bc had to settle with they report on that book. looking at other networks, generally they report on facts

he believed donald trump's appointment of brett kavanaugh has been the defining moment of his presidency so far. carley: sean spicer on dancing with the stars, one judge not that happy. my reaction to sean being saved is frustrating. there are really great dancers being sent home but that is part of our show. it has always been the audience of the judge's perspective. i can't be mad at it, it is just frustrating. is time has been controversial from the start. in a tweet, tom bergeron says he disagrees with spicer's casting. rob: even this show is political. give me a break. a dancing show. 26 after the are, donald trump rallying a fired up crowd in hopes of turning the governor's mansion in louisiana read.

carley: donald trump rallying support for eddie riskone. >> great to be with thousands of proud hard-working freedom loving american patriots. that is what you are. rob: the second rally in this race. aishah hasnie joins us with the biggest moment. >> reporter: the president knows how to pack a rally hoping he can convince voters to vote for eddie riskone as republicans try to unseat democratic governor john bell edwards. >> edwards is a complete disaster for the state of
louisiana. you cannot afford four more years of this far left travesty. it is time to replace your failed governor john bell edwards with eddie riskone. >> reporter: he urged folks to get out and vote early saying find your polling location and vote for your next louisiana governor. that is important because even though this is a state trump won in 2016 a recent poll has edwards up by two points. one of the biggest moment of the night came when the cast of "duck dynasty" took the stage to put their support behind riskone. >> if you are pro-god and pro-america and pro-gun and pro-duckhunting that is all i want.

they join us live, good morning. happy to have you here. >> i don't know what i expected but it was not a kanye concert but a service. it was phenomenal. >> he didn't go to stage in a 2-hour set. this? a lot of people think it is a ploy for attention. he is a celebrity. is he in on this thing? >> no one can judge the heart of
a man except god but i will say this. look at scripture, the apostle paul is literally on his way to kill and capture christians whenever he had this road to damascus encounter with god. you literally went from solid persecutor to paul, two thirds of the new testament. there are some who believe it was a 3-year process, the early church accepted him as a legitimate carrier of truth. i believe at the end of the day it is hard to judge a hard man but watch the proof. carley: tell us about your self. you have a very interesting story. >> we could be here all day on that. i grew up in church all my life. when i was 11 years old i
started doing drugs. i was a cocaine addict experimenting with crack cocaine, in and out of jail. i faced ten years in prison for armed robbery, second-degree kidnapping. my wife prayed for me, she would visit me in jail. eventually i faced incredible rehabilitation program. encountered the love of jesus and never looked back since. we have been traveling for 13 years to christian hip-hop music and pastoring at the greatest church in america for 41/2 years. rob: we appreciate it. thank you for your time. carley: what an inspiring couple. we turn to janice dean in st. petersburg, florida at the fox nation patriot awards. rob: i bet she is tired.
>> how do you know that? do you know me that well? rob: she might have had a cocktail last night. >> reporter: you both have to come next year. what an inspiration. incredible. fox nation put on a wonderful show and i'm happy to be here not only because we had the patriot awards last night but because it is 72 ° in st. petersburg. it is beautiful. i have a cold front to tell you about that will sweep the country even as far south as florida as we go into the weekend. i will show you what we are talking about. you see that front pushing across the ohio valley, mississippi and tennessee river valley, 17 in minneapolis and a balmy 7 ° in rapid city. along this cold front we have the potential for showers and thunderstorms moving through the
region. don't know why my maps aren't working but that cold front will bring potential for showers and a little bit of snow where we have colder air pushing to the northeast so we could see the potential for accumulating snow across the interior northeast, parts of the great lakes in the upper midwest and coming back into st. petersburg, tampa, florida where it is 72 ° and i will keep reiterating that. we have some snow moving in and the cold front will dip as far south as the gulf coast this weekend and later next week cold enough for perhaps snow along the big cities so stay tuned. carley: i would like to the request in to stay here in florida. >> everybody looks so beautiful. >> we don't need the map. we need you. >> i might have a slight headache, just saying. rob: thank you so much.

>> reporter: open hearings in the impeachment inquiry next week. those open hearings will be an opportunity for the american people to evaluate the witnesses for themselves and to learn firsthand about the fact of the president's misconduct. rob: a lot of big updates on this. americans will get their first look at the democratic impeachment agree with three key witnesses testifying in public hearings. carley: it comes after newly uncovered tweets from the whistleblower's attorney celebrating a coup against donald from. rob: judge andrew napolitano is live to break it down for us. let's pull up these tweets, you can see the first one, the coup has started, rebellion, hashtag impeachment in some of these tweets, very scary, we will get rid of him and the country strong enough to survive him and
his supporters. the attorney doesn't like the president. how big deal is this? judge napolitano: it is decidedly on lawyer like comments but i'm sure he will eat his words and wish he hadn't said. i don't think it is a big deal in the ultimate impeachment. attorneys have biases like everybody else was the attorney doesn't come in neutral, he comes in defending or advancing the cause of his clients but it is somewhat of an embarrassment for him, particularly harsh language and use of the word coup which implies illegal overflow. it is constitutional. it is a coup. carley: interesting the whistleblower chose him, that could have factored into it. judge napolitano: or the other way around, he may have chosen the whistleblower. we don't know. the lawyer himself whatever his political biases is one of the leading experts in national
security law, representing people who work in the intelligence community when they have a beef with their bosses. not on this grand a scale but has done it before. carley: we are used to having lawmakers go back and forth in lines of questioning but next week it will be different. judge napolitano: you will see serious lengthy questioning for 90 minutes, each side can pick a lawyer to do it. adam schiff is a former federal prosecutor who knows how to ask questions and follow up. the witness can often eat up the questioner's 5 minutes. it is more realistic and go into far more detail. every one of the witnesses has been examined under oath by this community.
questioners have a good idea of that. rob: you have become unpopular by saying the democrats have a case here. judge napolitano: popularity - rob: there is a case to be made, democrats have a case and you think the president may have done something wrong. judge napolitano: under the constitution they have a case because, he wasn't president then but became president, gerald ford once said and impeachable offense is whatever the house of representatives thinks it is and they do have a case that asking a foreign government for aid in a political campaign is and impeachable offense. rob: the republicans when they defend against this say the president to ukraine was trying to say they were going against corruption and the president was simply pointing out a case of corruption. it wasn't about knocking joe biden -- talking about look at this, this looks dirty.
judge napolitano: that is the president's defense of the public will decide who they believe. democrats will say they have the majority because this is not a jury case. the democrats have decided the president -- that there is a case there. if the president and his people make a stronger defense than the case the democrats make. carley: the only thing that will swing republicans is a bombshell that we don't already know. do you foresee that happening in open testimony? judge napolitano: i don't know. if you asked me that about nixon or clinton, you remember nixon? you were around. carley: i'm getting older by the moment. judge napolitano: there were bombshells nobody anticipated. who knows what is going to happen. this we know for certain, we will be riveted to it. rob: thanks for coming back.
