SEN. JEFF FLAKE IS THE HOT TOPIC @ THE VIEW


Jeff Flake On The View



Hot Topics: Jeff Flake discusses decision to call for FBI investigation.



Whoopi Goldberg weighs in on the senator's comment that if he were up for re-election there wouldn't be "a chance" that he would've made the decision to call for an FBI investigation: "That should give everybody pause, because the idea that you would let a potential monster sit on the Supreme Court because you wanted to get re-elected tells us we have some issues here!"


"What's scary to think that none of this would've happened if Jeff Flake had taken the stairs!" Behar said of the viral moment caught on video where two women rebuked his earlier decision to support Kavanaugh's nomination. "I'm serious — he happened to be in the elevator... he was stuck in the elevator and they got him!"


"What Jeff Flake did was such a blessing for this country because he said 'Let's take a step back, let's take a breath,'" Abby Huntsman says. "It's really healthy thing for all of us to do, to take the politics out of it, if that's even possible, and say 'Is this the right person to be on the Supreme Court?'"

Michael Avenatti on Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen


"In retrospect, I'm glad Michael Cohen did take those recordings," Avenatti says. "You deserve to know what your leaders have done and whether... they've committed crimes. It's just that simple. Everyone should be demanding the release of these tapes."


Avenatti discusses what the contents are on the disc he tweeted a picture of in March: "As soon as we get it back from law enforcement, I'll be happy to talk about it."



Avenatti says Stormy Daniels' arrest was 'politically motivated'


Avenatti says he believes there will be "no question that it will be proven" Daniels' Ohio arrest was politically motivated: "In America, we should not be using the power of the badge to arrest our political enemies."


 

Avenatti discusses possible run for president in 2020


"2020 is going to prove to be a critical election," Avenatti says. "The Democrats have to nominate somebody who can beat Donald Trump... I will strongly consider it."

CYNTHIA NIXON CALLS TO ABOLISH ICE ON THE VIEW


Cynthia Nixon On The View



New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon weighs in on Trump signing an executive order to keep migrant families together: "I am glad he has signed this executive order against himself, protecting them from him. I wish he would sign some more executive orders protecting us from him."



She calls to abolish ICE, saying the federal agency has "strayed so far from the interests of the American people and the interests of humanity — we need to abolish it."



She reacts the press' difficulties getting access to child detention centers, and compares it to coverage of the Vietnam War: "When you show people what's really happening, and the brutality and the injustice ... it's very hard to defend this kind of a policy."



"The problems that we have start at the top," she says of why she's running for governor, and discusses taking on Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "We're a Democratic state here ... but we've got a governor who hands over power to the Republicans and who has governed like a Republican."



Nixon shares her plan for education reform, saying "we need to invest in schools, not jails!"
Her plan includes fully funding K-12 education "without regard to the zip code, the property values in those areas and the skin color of the children who attend those schools."



Nixon talks the role her Sex and the City fame plays in her candidacy: "If the comparison is to Donald Trump, there's almost no overlap... I don't think celebrity is necessarily a bad thing in politics — it gives you a platform and it depends on what you do with that platform!"



She responds to those calling her qualifications into question: "When women run for office, celebrity or not, immediately their qualifications ... their motivations are questioned."



"We see women running for office across this country because they believe what I believe," she says. "If you really wanna bring change, we have to be the ones who are gonna bring it!"

"That policy was zero tolerance for people [crossing] the border."


"This isn't a partisan issue ... this is wrong," Hostin added.


How did we get here — and who has the power to stop the separation of children from their parents at the border? "It's on us!" Whoopi Goldberg says. "This is gonna come back and bite us all....not just Republicans and Democrats."
