5:45 am
guadette. christine blasey ford says mark judge was in the room, an eyewitness. ford is not on the list. it's our understanding the fbi did not talk to ford nor to brett kavanaugh, though they testified for hours under oath. so, apparently that was sufficient for investigators. we don't know what the report says but judge kavanaugh supporters say the report goes his way. mitch mcconnell promised to plow through kavanaugh's nomination even before the investigation started and has scheduled a vote for friday. >> there will be time for members to be briefed and a review of the supplemental material before friday's cloture vote. i'm filing cloture on judge kavanaugh's nomination this evening so the vote can move forward as i indicated earlier. >> the white house has indicated it's pleased with the fbi report as well. a spokesperson there says the
5:46 am
president is, quote, confident the senate will confirm kavanaugh to the supreme court. president trump just tweeted, kavanaugh's great life cannot be ruined by mean and despicable democrats and totally uncorroborated allegations. now, this is not over yet. several republicans senators voiced their displeasure of the president's treatment of dr. ford at that rally in mississippi. it's not impossible that would be enough to sway their vote. we're going to know very soon. polls show a majority of americans disapprove of kavanaugh on the court but in these partisan times, what matters is individual congressional districts, wanot what a majority of americans want. the "today" show will have full coverage coming up at 7:00. we'll continue to update you on twitter as this moves forward today. >> a lot to follow. thank you very much. 5:47. a push to repeal california's gas tax is losing financial
5:47 am
support. the measure falls behind in the polls. campaign finance statements show several reform groups have cash on hand but aren't spending it on any more ads. a lik voters oppose the ballot measure with 39% in favor. so, imagine hiring someone to clean your home but then you come home to find they actually trashed your house. >> that was one woman's case in new york city. that was not the only thing trashed when she got home. so were her cleaners. they both wound up passed out on her couch. at least that's where she says both were when a friend came to pick up the keys. when the homeowner later returned after work, she found one of those cleaners there still passed out on the floor. that's when she called police. >> they spent 45 minutes getting her together enough to put her in an ambulance. she was too drunk to put her flip-flops on. >> wow.
5:48 am
