fbi findings which will summarize interviews with at least five high school friends of brett kavanaugh and christine blasey ford. the goal, to shed light on ford's accusations that kavanaugh pinned her down and groped her in 1982. >> i would say it needs to be made public. >> as of yesterday, the fbi had not interviewed ford or kavanaugh themselves. along with more than a dozen people proposed by ford's lawyers. overnight, the new yorker reported that frustrated witnesses wanting to speak to the fbi about other allegations against kavanaugh were ignored. deborah ramirez who alleges kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a yale party, was interviewed by the fbi, but she told the new yorker people who were keen to corroborating my story had not been contacted. i feel like i'm being silenced. kavanaugh has denied all the claims against him. get home? i don't remember. how'd you get there?

who to interview and what to look into. so dr. ford was not interviewed, nor was judge kavanaugh. fbi agents relied on the public testimony from last week's hearing to track down witnesses. ultimately, about seven people were interviewed, as the fbi tries to corroborate the allegations. once the probe was completed, summaries of the interviews were turned over to the white house. in a background inquiry like this, when the fbi does not come to a conclusion, that is up to the white house and this morning "the wall street journal" is reporting the white house has decided there's no support for those allegations. we're just going to have to see what members of the senate think when they read that report. >> that is the key question. jeff, thank you. former cbs anchor connie chung says in a new op-ed i too was sexually assaulted. she made the statement in "the washington post," addressing it to christine blasey ford. the 72-year-old journalist describes in graph iic detail, e family doctor molested her in

♪ you bitter thietter think abo you're trying to do to me ♪ good morning, it's thursday, october 4, 2018. the fbi wraps up its squall misconduct inquiry into judge brett kavanaugh without talking to him or his first accuser. we'll talk about the report with former prosecutor fran townsend. she's here in studio 57 with dr. tara narula who is looking at the latest evidence suggesting alcohol has no health benefits. first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. the fbi inquiry that delayed a confirmation vote on brett kavanaugh is finished. delivered overnight to the senate. >> there will be one copy senators can view. that's to cut leaks. >> for this case will put them right in the middle of a political firestorm. that's where they are six days after their supplemental
8:01 am
background investigation. >> our affiliate wbtw is reporting the shooter is an elderly man by the name of fred hopkins. he lived at the home where the shooting happened and the crime scene is about 100 yards behind me. >> nearly 70,000 people are homeless. there's no drinking water or electricity. there's nowhere to buy food. fema and s.e.fcc official s out an alert nationwide. >> i have to show you this from my homeland. british prime minister when she walked out on stage she did this. [ laughter ] we're english, we're supposed to have stiff upper lips, not stiff upper everything. i love theresa may showing
8:02 am
she has a sense of humor and has moves. did you see any of that last week? >> she owns it. she was dealing with -- trying to get the e tao bu to buy her for brexit. >> i'm gayle king with john dickerson and more norah o'donn. bianna is on assignment with interviews with ted cruz and beto o'rorke. senators have started reading the allegations of sexual misconduct against support nominee brett kavanaugh. >> republicans and democrats will take turns viewing a single copy of the document ahead of a vote to cut off debate tomorrow. a final vote could happen as early as saturday. the "wall street journal" reports the white house officials red the fbi report and found no corroboration of the allegations. >> minutes ago chuck grassley, a republican said after reading the report, quote, there's nothing in it we didn't already know. the fbi interviewed seven people
8:03 am
including friends of kavanaugh and friends of christine blasey ford who claims kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school. agents spoke to deborah ramirez who alleged kavanaugh exposed himself at a party at yale university. the fbi didn't interview christine blasey ford or kavanaugh. more than 1,000 law professors signed a "new york times" op-ed saying the senate should not confirm kavanaugh. >> senior national security analyst fran townsend was homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. she served in his administration with judge kavanaugh and signed a letter supporting the allegations were made public. good morning. >> good morning. >> give us a sense of what the senators are looking at? >> when the fbi does an interview they do a record of th of the form. that's a summary, not a transcript, of the questions they ask and that's collated into the background report which
8:04 am
is more likely a narrative that pulls those 302s together. it may include the underlying 302 report. >> why didn't they interview kavanaugh and snored. >> -- ford? >> and are you surprised? >> i am. i don't believe as a prosecutor you can have a credible investigation without abinterview of dr. ford. i think what you'll hear from the fbi is they were constrained in who they could talk to by the scope of the investigation but even if you take that on face value that they were constrained to investigate the allegations, that doesn't explain why you don't interview dr. ford. >> they're saying they already have her testimony and his testimony. is that fair? >> well, that is fair but what you don't get out of that therapist note which is you could have asked her for, you don't get polygraph report which you could have asked her for so there are a lot of good reasons as a prosecutor, i would have sent the agents back out to do
8:05 am
that. >> does it hurt the fbi's credibility? >> i think. so everybody called for this because they were an independent third party, they were the gold standard in terms of an investigation, non-partisan and to have them now say we found no support for dr. ford's allegations but we didn't speak to her i think does undermine their credibility. >> but are background check s investigations or inquiries. >> well, they're inquiries. >> i just think the expectat su going to exonerate or condemn somebody is wrong. they have no subpoena power, they can't compel anyone to be interviewed by them. >> and i think we have to be -- from the beginning i said what do we expect of the fbi? this allegation is 36 years old. they're unlikely to be able to corroborate it. but they also haven't disproven it. >> but a lot of people are raising questions about his temperament and former classmates are coming forward saying he lied about his behavior when it comes to drinking, does that matter?
8:06 am
>> i think it matters in the overall consideration for senators but let's be clear on this inquiry as norah was saying, that was not part of it. all the fbi was dodd do is look at the shault allegations so the white house cleverly scoped this additional background investigation to exclude those things. >> as a journalist, you want to be able to hear from as many people as you can flare so you can get a sense who have is believable. why didn't they -- they didn't need to turn in the this early? why not interview a few more people? the. >> the real question is what do senators flake, collins and murkowski think of this? do think think it's adequate? i don't think you've done much to give them political cover because it hasn't ban that widespread so today we want to watch those things. >> that's the interesting point. people are saying the scope
8:07 am
isn't big enough for them to have political cover. always good to have you. >> if you're drinking a glass of wine a day for your health you may want to reconsider. our dr. tara narula is here in the green room for morning rounds with new research and the questions and benefits of even small
