It is a rush transcript of “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on December 1, 2021. This copy will not be in its ultimate kind and could also be up to date.

NEIL CAVUTO, FOX NEWS ANCHOR:  All proper, you are watching the formal 

arraignment of Ethan Crumbley, a 15-year-old being charged as an grownup in 

the murders at that Michigan highschool yesterday that claimed a fourth 

life right this moment, a 17-year-old scholar, the fourth sufferer, succumbing to 

- Advertisement -

vital accidents that had occurred yesterday. 

The assaults are many and the counts are many, 4 counts of first-degree 

homicide, seven counts of assault with intent to homicide, 12 counts of 

possession of a firearm. Crumbley, you may recall, was arrested within the 

speedy aftermath of the taking pictures, taken into custody. 

We additionally had an opportunity to see — his dad and mom have been a part of this arraignment 

course of. We discovered via the police after which the chief police within the 

space that they’d been with their son that morning on a faculty self-discipline 

difficulty that had come up over two days, first on Monday, after which individually 

assembly with another academics, we’re instructed — we assume academics — the 

very subsequent day.

Whether or not they have been with him on each days, it seems that they have been. They 

have been with him at this arraignment. Once more, simply protecting you posted on this. 

However all of this comes at a time we’re studying that there’s now apparently 

a large quantity of digital proof, videotape, social media, that 

completely confirms that we will present this was a premeditated act. 

That is coming from the Oakland county prosecutor, Karen McDonald, who stated 

that this was not simply an impulsive act, it was deliberate, it was very well-


Let’s go to Steve Harrigan proper now following all these developments in 

Oxford, Michigan — Steve. 

STEVE HARRIGAN, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT:  Neil, lots of information popping out 

about this case and a few outstanding photos there from the courtroom, the place 

you noticed the 15-year-old sophomore in a bulletproof vest slumped over, 

wanting very small and never highly effective in any respect, his dad and mom in baseball caps on 

a unique display on the identical time.

We’ve discovered that the 15-year-old might be charged as an grownup, that he 

will face 4 costs of first-degree homicide that present premeditation. 

Additionally, he’ll face the cost of terrorism that causes loss of life, an uncommon 

cost. The prosecutor defined that, saying this whole group has 

been terrorized by the 15-year-old’s motion. 

And, as you referenced, the prosecutor stated there was a mountain of digital 

proof to point out that these shootings have been premeditated. It definitely 

raises the query, if there was a lot proof on the market on-line, why no 

purple flags have been raised. 

As for the shooter himself, we’re studying new particulars about what went on 

yesterday simply earlier than 1:00 p.m. The 15-year-old walked up and down the 

hallways, firing a Sig Sauer pistol at extraordinarily shut vary, hitting 

fellow college students within the head, within the physique, at instances taking pictures via 

barricaded doorways to attempt to kill extra.

At this level, 4 {dead}, ages 17, 17, 16 and 14, seven folks nonetheless 

wounded, and positively lots of questions raised about what the college knew 

and when. They held conferences with the 15-year-old a day earlier than the 

taking pictures. The day of the taking pictures, simply two hours earlier than the rampage, each 

dad and mom, the shooter and administration officers met in that faculty. 

Two hours later, he got here out of the toilet firing — Neil. 

CAVUTO:  Steve, do we all know whether or not he focused his victims, the 4 who 

died, the seven others who have been injured, I consider two others critically? 

Do we all know whether or not they have been his meant targets, that he was looking out 

for them? 

HARRIGAN: Officers proper now aren’t saying both method whether or not they have been 

focused or not.

However from the outline of the firing, strolling up and down halls, firing 

folks at shut vary and firing into lecture rooms, it doesn’t appear that he 

focused the folks hit, once more, 4 killed, seven wounded, one instructor 

wounded, and one 14-year-old nonetheless in vital situation at the moment. 

So these numbers may change much more, Neil. 

CAVUTO:  All proper, Steve, thanks very, very a lot, Steve Harrigan.

I need to go to Ted Williams proper now, the previous D.C. detective, what he 

makes it this. 

I suppose we do not know what occurred, Ted, on these two days that this younger 

man, being in all probability 15, however being arraigned as an grownup right this moment on these 

costs, what transpired at these back-to-back Monday and Tuesday conferences, 

together with the ultimate one yesterday however two hours earlier than the shootings. 

However what do you make of this? 

TED WILLIAMS, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR:  Properly, it seems, at this stage, we’re 

coping with a really disturbed younger man, Neil.

However you may have simply stated it, that there was a gathering with this younger man, 

the day earlier than yesterday, after which there was one yesterday along with his 

dad and mom. This — from what I’ve been capable of glean and what’s on the market 

is that the gun that was used was a gun that his father had only recently 


And whereas he was on this college, and whereas he was doing his taking pictures, at 

one time, whereas the scholars have been barricaded in a classroom, it’s alleged 

that he requested them, “Come out, come out, you are protected, I am with the 

insurance coverage division,” when in truth he was not truly with the sheriff’s 


It is a horrific scenario. It’s unhappy. However regulation enforcement now, the 

investigation begins, as a result of there is a crime scene. And I can let you know, 

Neil, as part of this investigation, they will do a social media 

scrub. They are going to have to speak to his associates, people who find themselves his 

academics who knew him or folks — people in the neighborhood that very nicely could 

have recognized him, as a result of, from what I’ve been instructed is also that he isn’t 


He is lawyered up. And his dad and mom and him have been instructed that they aren’t 

to talk to anybody regarding this case. So the investigation goes to 

proceed, Neil, sadly.

CAVUTO:  Actual rapidly on that oddity the place he isn’t talking to 

authorities, he is handled as a minor in Michigan, a juvenile, with out 

getting parental permission, but he is being arraigned on these costs as 

an grownup. 

What do you make of that? 

WILLIAMS:  Properly, they’ve determined, the authorities, that they wished to go 

ahead with costs as an grownup, in mild of the various people who’ve 

been killed right here.

However even when he is being handled as an grownup, the second he attorneys up, as he 

has executed, he doesn’t should say something to anyone. So the authorities 

are left attempting to find out, what was the motive on this? And that’s the 

purpose that they will should backtrack and communicate to lots of people 

on this investigation and examine, after all, social media websites.

CAVUTO:  All proper, Ted, thanks very, very a lot for that. 

We might be pursuing this story and getting extra info on it, however the 

formal arraignment of this 15-year-old, being arraigned as an grownup on 

these costs, 4 costs of homicide that go on and on and on, and nonetheless 

questions as to why he did what he did. 

We can have far more on that if it turns into obtainable. 

Within the meantime, I do need to deliver your consideration to the nook of Wall 

and Broad right this moment. We had an enormous sell-off, all of that having to do with 

Omicron arriving proper now in america, the primary case reported in 


The administration was the primary to kind of put out Dr. Anthony Fauci on 

this primary case that he suspects may set off up information of nonetheless different 


Peter Doocy now on the White Home with extra on that — Peter. 


this information, Neil, from officers round right here in attempting to assist folks 

course of that there’s a new variant is to push current vaccines and 


And we’re instructed that this contaminated individual is doing higher. Their signs 

are doing higher. They’re thought-about totally vaccinated with two pictures, they 

haven’t but had a booster, they usually’re quarantining in San Francisco after 

a visit to South Africa. 



we name in medication and N=1, which implies that you actually cannot take 

something away from a single affected person. It is vitally — it is — we really feel good 

that this affected person not solely had delicate signs, however truly the signs 

seem like enhancing. 


DOOCY:  White Home officers inform us: “The president can have extra to say 

about our technique for combating COVID this winter tomorrow. However, for now, 

we all know that this new variant is trigger for continued vigilance, not panic. 

We all know that — we all know what it takes to restrict the unfold of COVID, get 

vaccinated, get boosted, and take public well being measures like masking and 


A few of these new adjustments are reportedly going to require stricter testing 

necessities even for totally vaccinated People. However there are new 

questions that we posed to Dr. Fauci about doable loopholes. 


DOOCY:  As you may have suggested the president about the potential for new 

testing necessities for folks coming into this nation, does that embrace 

all people? 

FAUCI:  The reply is sure.

DOOCY:  However what about individuals who do not take a aircraft and simply these border 

crossers coming in, in enormous numbers? 


FAUCI:  That is a unique difficulty. 

For instance, whenever you discuss — we nonetheless have Title 42 with regard to 

safety on the border. So there are protections on the border, that you simply 

do not have the potential.


DOOCY:  And all that is taking place is the president admits that he is nonetheless 

coping with a COVID-crimped provide chain proper forward of Christmas. He stated 

right this moment throughout a quick set of remarks earlier than this information broke that he can’t 

assure everybody’s Christmas presents are going to reach on time. 

He says, the president says that the one one that can assure that’s 

Santa — Neil. 

CAVUTO:  Properly, I’ve talked to Santa, and he is apprehensive, simply so you recognize. 


CAVUTO:  However, Peter, thanks very, very a lot, a wild day there on the 

White Home. 

Let’s go to Jonathan Serrie right here, what we’re studying about Omicron. 

Lots of people are very surprised by these developments, however the truth of the 

matter is, Jonathan, we’ve got had reviews now that that is already in 23 

international locations. The very best tipoff in all probability was studying early yesterday that 

Canada was amongst them. 

Now the problem turns into what’s subsequent, who’s subsequent, how large a deal that is, 

whether or not the prevailing therapies we’ve got can handle this or not, delays and 

doable responses going into subsequent yr. What are you studying? 

JONATHAN SERRIE, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT:  Sure, nicely, we out of the blue have extra 

instruments to take care of it, extra therapies being developed and positively some 

highly effective vaccines, that they are nonetheless testing the efficacy of them in opposition to 

this explicit variant, however, proper now, federal well being officers consider 

with an inexpensive degree of confidence that full vaccination, plus a booster 

shot, gives you at the least some safety, definitely safety in opposition to 

probably the most severe types of illness. 

Now, as we communicate, San Francisco well being officers are conducting contact 

tracing on this case, attempting to see if anybody else was uncovered to this 

traveler, however the metropolis doesn’t plan to impose any new restrictions or 

mandates based mostly on this case. 

Moments in the past, metropolis officers wrapped up a information convention on this primary 

confirmed U.S. case of the Omicron variant. Take a hear. 



This isn’t a shock. 

For these of you who’ve been following us, we knew that Omicron was going 

to be right here. We thought it could — it was already right here, we simply hadn’t 

detected it but. So that is trigger for concern, however it’s also definitely not 

a trigger for us to panic. 


SERRIE:  White Home COVID response coordinator Jeff Zients issued this 

assertion: “We’re ready to satisfy this problem with science and pace. 

The president’s medical crew continues to consider that current vaccines 

will present some degree of safety in opposition to extreme sickness from Omicron, 

and people who’ve gotten boosters can have an excellent stronger 


Some extra particulars on this primary U.S. case. It entails an individual who 

lately traveled to San Francisco from South Africa, developed signs 

upon return, after which instantly reported it to physicians, and went in, 

received examined, and, with the Positive check, went into isolation.

The affected person had been totally vaccinated with two doses of the Moderna 

vaccine, however had not acquired a booster shot. Fortunately, this case was 

very delicate. The individual, in truth, has already recovered. However, once more, contact 

tracing is happening. 

One factor happening in San Francisco’s favor is that there are very excessive 

vaccination charges in that metropolis. And public well being officers consider that 

that can sluggish the unfold of this variant in that city, even when it could possibly’t 

stop it altogether — Neil.

CAVUTO:  Jonathan Serrie, thanks very a lot for that. 

SERRIE:  Actually.

CAVUTO:  All proper, to Francis — Dr. Francis Collins proper now, the 

director of the Nationwide Institutes of Well being. 

Physician, superb seeing you once more.

I discussed, Physician, slightly earlier the panicked response. Actually, 

Wall Avenue gave this, on the nice unknown. Is that this one other step backward? 

Are we going to see a variant that is going to take some time to provide you with 

a vaccine to deal with? 

So, after all, in Wall Avenue’s temper, it is to promote first, ask questions 

later. Did they overreact? Do you suppose that is worthy of the kind of 

disaster response at the least traders had? 


type of shocked that the primary case turning up in California is de facto 

seen as an enormous occasion, as a result of we’ve got all been saying it is solely a matter of 

time. Anytime this week, it was very prone to occur, contemplating, as you 

have simply stated, greater than 20 international locations have had {cases} of Omicron. 

So it shouldn’t come as an awesome shock, with a South African traveler, 

who, by the best way, is California resident, getting back from a visit, seems 

to be Positive, appears to be doing rather well. 

And I suppose it is a sign traders hate uncertainty, Neil. 

CAVUTO:  Sure, they do.

COLLINS:  And that is lengthy been recognized. 

And we’ve got some uncertainty proper now about, simply how severe is that this 

variant? Is it extremely transmissible? How extreme is the illness it could possibly 

trigger? And can the vaccines and the boosters totally shield us? Or can we 

have to consider redesigning them? 

And we do not have solutions to these issues as clearly as we wish, and 

it is going to be a few weeks earlier than we do. So, Wall Avenue’s going to 

should take care of some uncertainty. 

CAVUTO:  Sure. 

COLLINS:  I want we may do that quicker. 

CAVUTO:  No, you are proper to not be specializing in these cash guys. I suppose I 

try this for a residing, Physician, and compensate. 

However let me ask you. When the South African, I believe, well being minister was 

commenting on the {cases} in her nation, she was referring to the truth that 

they have been all comparatively delicate. Now, she and others within the area is perhaps 

speaking e book as a result of they do not need to be remoted from the world, that 

journey restrictions imposed. However that is already taking place. 

Do you suppose that a few of the restrictions which were put in place 

already and contemplation of nonetheless extra is warranted? 

COLLINS:  Properly, I believe it is sensible to attempt to restrict the variety of contaminated 

people coming to the U.S. So I am completely supportive of what the 

president wanted to do there when it comes to blocking flights from South 

African and international locations shut by. 

And I believe it is a actually good concept, Neil, to get all people having a check 

in the future earlier than they get on the aircraft to ensure folks aren’t coming who 

are already contaminated, and likewise to require all people to be vaccinated. 

However no person ought to think about that that is an ideal scenario that is going to 

block different {cases}. I might be shocked if we do not have extra {cases} of 

Omicron in america within the coming week or two. And no person ought to 

be shocked if that is the case. 

And I believe the massive query is, actually, how a lot ought to we be involved 

about whether or not that is going to alter our plan? Remember, Neil, proper 

now, all the excitement is about Omicron, however the illness that is killing folks 

in america proper now’s Delta.

CAVUTO:  Sure. 

COLLINS:  Delta remains to be taking about 1,000 lives that day. And we aren’t 

essentially dealing with that one very nicely due to the restrict within the quantity 

of people that’ve truly taken benefit of vaccinations and boosters. 

If Omicron is waking folks up slightly bit to making the most of these 

issues, then that, I suppose, is perhaps a silver lining, as a result of we do consider 

these vaccines are going to be our greatest safety and are the most effective 

safety now. 

CAVUTO:  You may suppose that might be the response. That was my thought 

too, Physician. 

However I’ve heard from a variety of individuals who say that is proof why I 

should not get vaccinated, as a result of folks preserve having issues, even these 

who’ve been totally vaccinated. So why the heck ought to I?

What do you inform them? 

COLLINS:  Properly, let’s attempt to reply that query fastidiously. 

It is true that people who find themselves totally vaccinated can nonetheless have breakthrough 

infections, however their probability of getting such an an infection is about 

tenfold much less. And their probability of getting actually sick or dying is even 

higher in discount.

So, simply because a vaccine just isn’t excellent doesn’t suggest you do not need to 

make the most of it, if it has an opportunity of saving your life. Once more, Neil, 

I believe that the statistic that I am shocked folks have not centered on is, 

let’s take a look at these 1,000 folks every single day who’re dying within the United 

States of Delta. Are they vaccinated? 

No. They’re nearly all unvaccinated. When you wished proof that the vaccines 

are saving lives, it is proper there in entrance of us every single day. And the 

boosters will do much more than that, as a result of we all know the vaccines are likely to 

wane of their effectiveness after six months. 

CAVUTO:  Proper. 

COLLINS:  So, anyone who’s listening to this, if you have not received 

vaccinated, sure, Omicron is another reason why you need to do that for 

your self and your loved ones. 

If in case you have gotten vaccinated, however you have not gotten round to that 

booster but, it is now really useful, all people 18 and over. And it is simple to 

discover a place. Vaccines.gov will let you know what’s near you. Get the 

booster and you’ll be even higher ready for the vacations and extra 

assured that no matter’s happening now with this doggone COVID-19 just isn’t 

such a risk to you. 

It is not that tough. It is fairly simple. Take a look at the information, America. 

CAVUTO:  Sure. 

I do know — all I do know, as a breakthrough case myself, that it could have 

been rather a lot worse had I not been vaccinated. So, once I inform that to folks, 

they simply say, oh, nicely, you are Mr. Vaccine. 

I suppose, in that case, I’m.

Physician, thanks very, very a lot. Good seeing you once more.

And I’ll have you ever again to speak in regards to the inventory market one other time. How’s 



COLLINS:  That might be actually illuminating, I am certain, for everybody.

CAVUTO:  Sure, I’m completely certain it could be.


CAVUTO:  Dr. Francis Collins, director of the Nationwide Institutes of 

Well being.

All proper, within the meantime, there was another information happening right this moment, 

significantly in Washington, the place they’re attempting to keep away from a authorities 


However they should do all of it by Friday evening at midnight. Then there’s the 

debt ceiling. Then there’s attempting to get that Construct Again Higher factor 

going. Then there’s attempting to calm markets which are simply freaking out over 

all this stuff — after this. 


CAVUTO:  It won’t have the ability to overturn Roe v. Wade, however did the Supreme 

Court docket in right this moment at the least it is contemplating critically undercutting it?

Extra after this.


CAVUTO:  All proper, by Friday, they should provide you with one thing in 

Washington to keep away from a authorities shutdown, or at the least begin the method. 

And we’re instructed, at the least on the a part of Chuck Schumer, that they are shut 

to one thing, however one other Democratic senator saying, nicely, we’re not shut 

to something. The debt ceiling hangs within the steadiness simply a few weeks 

after that. Then there’s the Construct Again Higher plan the president’s attempting 

to marshal sufficient help to get executed. 

It’s a busy time in D.C. 

Aishah Hasnie following in any respect from Capitol Hill — Aishah.


Sure, it is going to take a Christmas miracle to get lots of this executed, 

particularly the Construct Again Higher plan, in the event that they need to get it executed by 


The person of the hour is after all, Senator Joe Manchin. Everybody’s been 

speaking about him. His largest gripe with this spending plan proper now’s 

paid household depart. He is not in opposition to the concept. He desires to see it in a 

separate invoice. 

However these desires and desires have Democrats actually shedding endurance with him. 



SEN. RICHARD DURBIN (D-IL):  Some packages have been eradicated. Ones that

I dearly love have been eradicated at his request. And now it is time for 

Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to shut the deal. For goodness’ sakes, 

sufficient is sufficient. 


HASNIE:  Sufficient is sufficient, he says.

Not sure that is going to discourage the average Democrat from West Virginia, 

who, by the best way, received an earful from constituents when he was dwelling for the 

holidays. That’s the reason he says he desires to have a look at this Home invoice via 

the lens of the continued inflation disaster. 

He additionally does not actually like how this 10-year-long invoice is being paid for. 

There are some social packages on this like common pre-Ok which are 

written to final just one to 6 years. That helps trim the invoice’s price ticket 

on the high. However these packages will in all probability be prolonged sooner or later. And 

any individual has to pay for that. 

Minority Chief Mitch McConnell calls it — quote — “complete accounting 

fiction.” Manchin does not prefer it both. 


SEN. JOE MANCHIN (D-WV): If you are going to do one thing, then do it for 

the 10-year interval. Do not do it for one yr, three years, or 4 years or 

no matter. 

That is simply — that is disingenuine for the American public to know. 


HASNIE:  And, Neil, it isn’t only a Joe Manchin difficulty. 

Check out all the gadgets Democrats nonetheless must work out on this 

invoice, to not point out it has nonetheless not gone via the Byrd bathtub, as they 

name it, via the Senate parliamentarian to clear Senate guidelines. 

So, nonetheless a protracted approach to go, 24 days till Christmas. Who’s counting? 

CAVUTO:  Sure. I’ve a sense you’ll be working Christmas, on the fee 

this goes.

HASNIE:  We are going to see.

CAVUTO:  Aishah, thanks very, very a lot.

HASNIE:  I’ll get you a pleasant current.


CAVUTO:  There you go.

Aishah Hasnie following that. 

So, the place can we stand on the Construct Again Higher factor particularly proper 

now, particularly with a few of the issues that Joe Manchin has been saying?

Let’s go to Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, the Home majority 


Congressman, nice to see you. 

After I heard Senator Durbin, sir, he sounded very pissed off with Joe 

Manchin, that Democrats have tried to present him every little thing he wished, 

Kyrsten Sinema as nicely. 

Are you? Are you pissed off with Joe Manchin? 

REP. JAMES CLYBURN (D-SC):  Properly, to start with, thanks very a lot for 

having me, Neil. 

CAVUTO:  Thanks.

CLYBURN:  I believe I nearly.

Look, I believe Durbin is completely right. This complete notion that, should you 

are going to do one thing, do it for 10 years, or under no circumstances, that is a 

fallacy, and we should cease that foolishness. 

We do not know what situations might be in two or three years. Even should you 

have been to fund it now for 10 years and there is dramatic change in our 

circumstances, then it will not be however for one or two years. So doing 

one thing for 2 or three years, reasonably than 10, is simply — it is loopy to 

suppose that it have to be 10 or nothing.

So he should be ashamed of himself for saying one thing like that. That is 

not the best way the world works. Everyone is aware of…

CAVUTO:  So, it seems like you may have gotten pissed off with this course of 

right here, and that possibly there is a sense within the Senate that that is falling 


Do you suppose that it is falling aside? 

CLYBURN:  No, I do not suppose it is falling aside in any respect. 

You simply have somebody who appears to need to have his method or the freeway. 

That is what this looks as if to me. All of us have been getting exterior of 

our consolation zones. Durbin is correct. He is given up lots of issues that he is 

comfy with. 

We over right here on the Home facet gave up lots of issues that we have been 

comfy with. Chances are you’ll recall, after we have been doing this invoice, even inside 

our personal caucus, I requested the Congressional Black Caucus, the Hispanic 

Caucus, the Asian/Pacific Islanders to get past their consolation zones. Get 

exterior of your consolation zones. And we did the identical factor with the moderates 

as a way to discover widespread floor. 

So, this complete notion is that you’re the one one which have to be comfy 

with the method, that is not the best way the world works. You are aren’t 

profitable in authorities and even in household affairs by having it your method 

all the time or no method. 

CAVUTO:  However is not the concern, Congressman, that it is the progressives having 

all of it the best way, that they are ruling the roost right here, that they are forcing 

this spending, that this spending goes to be inflationary, that we all know 

from the CBO rating it is not paid for, because the president retains stating, and 

that, when folks return to their numerous districts, like we’re instructed 

Senator Manchin did in West Virginia to his state, folks have been giving him 

an earful about all of that?

What do you say? 

CLYBURN:  I might say that that is not fairly proper, Neil.

They did say that some issues weren’t paid for below the calculations that 

they have been utilizing. In addition they stated that, if sure different issues have been to 

occur, it could be paid for. 

We simply noticed this evaluation from Moody’s. That evaluation point out that not 

solely will it’s paid for, that we are going to contribute to an enormous discount within the 

deficit. And it additionally stated it could have a Positive impression on this complete 

notion of inflation. 

So, who’re we alleged to consider, the individuals who attempting to attain 

political factors or an unbiased home, like Moody’s is? And so they do not 

have any political concerns right here. So, I consider the Moody’s evaluation 

to be nearer to what is the truth. 

CAVUTO:  Properly, they’re about the one one. And Moody’s may — Moody’s 

might need a calculated curiosity on this. 

They underwrite bonds and all the remaining. So, if there’s lots of exercise on 

constructing and municipal bonds, they’re the blokes behind it and the score 

businesses. However you are fairly proper to say they are not saying that. Not too 

many different monetary varieties are. 

So, I suppose what I’ll ask you right here, People are very involved 

with runaway inflation and costs getting out of hand. The president says 

that is going to repair that. However nearly each time the federal government has spent a 

lot of cash, you do get inflation. 

Now, there is perhaps some advantages within the close to time period, however you do get 

inflation, and it is solely going to worsen. Or — does that fear to your 

celebration and a doable reversal in fortunes for Democrats, the place you are going 

to be the minority celebration after subsequent yr? 

CLYBURN:  Properly, I fear for the nation. Occasion is secondary to me. And it 

needs to be secondary to all people. 

I believe that the issue we’ve got received right here on this Hill now’s that 

all people is considering the celebration this, the celebration that, who will win 

subsequent yr, who might be within the minority? 

Let’s get issues going for the American folks, and let’s fear in regards to the 

politics after this will get executed. 

So, what we need to do…

CAVUTO:  However what if the American folks — what if the American folks, 

sir, aren’t eager on this? 

CLYBURN:  Properly, we’ve got regarded on the polling. 

How do you inform — decide whether or not or not they’re eager on it? When you 

take a look at the polling — and I’ve checked out it — nicely, you bought 60, 65 

p.c of the American folks saying that is what they need. So, what does 

that inform us if greater than 50 p.c of the American folks…


CAVUTO:  That 66 — are you saying there is a ballot that 66 p.c of the 

folks just like the Construct Again Higher plan? 

CLYBURN:  I stated 50 or 60.


CLYBURN:  It is past — sure, the Construct Again Higher plan, the final quantity I 

noticed was someplace like 57, 58 p.c. 

CAVUTO:  All proper.

CLYBURN:  So, and that is a truth. 

When you get 58 p.c, you are in fairly good condition. We name {that a} 

landslide in elections. 

CAVUTO:  OK. I must watch it. I used to be not conscious of that. 

However, Congressman, it is all the time good having you. Thanks for taking the 


CLYBURN:  Thanks very a lot for having me.

CAVUTO:  All proper, Jim Clyburn. 

Honest and balanced proper now, I need to go to John Barrasso, the Wyoming 

Republican senator, the Senate Republican Convention chairman.

Chairman, superb to have you ever.

Let me get your sense of what the congressman was simply saying, that that is 

going to get executed, that Manchin and, by extension, Kyrsten Sinema of 

Arizona, they may ultimately settle their variations, this will get executed. 

Now, you discuss to your Republican colleagues, I do know, to a person or girl, who 

don’t love this. Do you suppose he is proper about these two Democratic 


SEN. JOHN BARRASSO (R-WY):  Properly, look, Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer say 

they need to have it executed by Christmas. 

And, to me, that is going to make for a really lengthy December, as a result of the 

Democrats are going to run right into a buzz noticed of people within the Senate who 

notice that is going to harm the financial system in the event that they move this kind of factor. 

It may break the again of the American folks, when it comes to the taxes, 

when it comes to the inflation, when it comes to all of this extra authorities 


And I discuss to Joe Manchin commonly. He and I’ve a committee assembly 

tomorrow, the Vitality Committee. He has a number of issues. And so does 

Senator Sinema.

My suggestion is, they put the pause button this to say, let’s take a 

take a look at this after the brand new yr. Inflation, we all know, is getting worse. We 

know that the taxes are going to be an enormous burden on the American folks. 

I simply heard the earlier visitor discuss how he says it is a common 

invoice. You begin speaking to folks at dwelling about elements of this invoice, 

they hate it, once they hear that there are 5 completely different new entitlements 

for unlawful immigrants, together with amnesty, when folks know that there is 

all this cash for extra IRS brokers, folks to do extra audits to spy 

on our checking accounts and banking accounts.

They hate that element of it.

CAVUTO:  Backside line, you do not suppose that is going to return to move.

If I may simply get your sense of the place Democrats and Republicans may 

meet on widespread floor to keep away from a authorities shutdown on Friday. We’re instructed 

that Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer have had what is claimed to be 

productive discussions.

Do you suppose that that may be prevented, that they push this again? How will 

they do it? How will Friday evening look, Senator? 

BARRASSO:  I imply, the objective is to maintain authorities open. I am any individual that 

is in opposition to authorities shutdowns. 

However what you actually are seeing right here is also the truth that Chuck Schumer has 

been the bulk chief for a yr. He is not introduced a single 

appropriations invoice to the Senate all yr. He cannot even get the nuts and 

bolts of the conventional actions of presidency executed. So, the concept…

CAVUTO:  However the shutdown factor, Senator, do you suppose — do you suppose 

there’s sufficient Republican help to keep away from that, to work on some settlement 

to simply push it again slightly bit, arrange the stage the place they take care of 

the debt ceiling in two weeks? 

I do know you may have stated that they need to be doing that by reconciliation, 

depart it as much as themselves. It is as much as them. Republicans will not assist with 


The place are you? 


Sure, I consider that it is all going to get executed. I am — look, I am a man 

that is launched laws that is known as finish authorities shutdowns. I 

do not suppose that we accomplish something by shutting down the federal government, 


CAVUTO:  So you do not suppose that is going to occur? 

BARRASSO:  I don’t. Neil, it is onerous to invest this.

CAVUTO:  OK. And on the debt ceiling factor…

BARRASSO:  Go forward.

CAVUTO:  … you’ll not be a part of that push to boost the debt ceiling, 

Democrats ought to make that occur, or not? 

BARRASSO:  Sure, I’m clearly not going to vote to boost the debt ceiling. 

I do not know a single Republican that is going to vote for that, as a result of 

it is so tied to this reckless tax-and-spending invoice. We’re not going to 

default on our debt. We by no means have. However each time we’ve got had a debt 

ceiling vote up to now, the concept is to have a dialogue about tips on how to get 

the deficit below management. 

That is the precise reverse of what is taking place right here. The Democrats need to 

increase the debt ceiling, to allow them to do that huge socialist spending. Not 

one single…

CAVUTO:  Sure, however Republicans have raised the debt ceiling a variety of 

instances. You are each responsible of it, proper? It’s simply alternative ways of going 

about it, nevertheless it occurs on a regular basis, proper? 

BARRASSO:  And each time it is executed, it generates a dialogue about — a 

severe dialogue about…


BARRASSO:  … how are we going to get spending below management? That is not 

being executed this time. 

This time, they need to increase it, to allow them to do reckless spending. 

CAVUTO:  All proper, we are going to see what occurs. 

Senator, thanks very, very a lot for taking the time. 

A really, very busy time in Washington right this moment, the Supreme Court docket possibly hinting 

right this moment, given a few of the questioning we heard in that august chamber, about 

a measure that might undercut Roe v. Wade. Now, I am not saying take away it, 

however possibly, possibly take it aside — after this. 



UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We’re right here right this moment to empower ladies and promote life.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Any resolution that permits courts to override and to 

violate our primary rights is an unacceptable one.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What nearly most of us knew in 1973 was fallacious. Now 

the remainder of the nation has caught up. And it is time for this to go. 


CAVUTO:  All proper, no center floor on this abortion difficulty.

Almost 50 years after Roe v. Wade, indicators, simply indicators — they usually might be 

fallacious — the Supreme Court docket is barely unraveling that. Simpler 

stated than executed. 

Shannon Bream following all of it in Washington — Shannon. 


So, right this moment, what was at difficulty is that this Mississippi regulation that bans most 

abortions after 15 weeks. And so, hear, Mississippi has made clear, and 

the lawmakers who backed and crafted and received this regulation handed stated they 

wished to make a direct run at Roe v. Wade. 

There is no pretense about that. However, right this moment, there was lots of dialogue 

within the courtroom about stare decisis or this idea that you simply depart precedents 

alone except there’s completely an egregious error or a correction that 

must be made by the courtroom. 

Justice Breyer right this moment was among the many three liberal justices who stated they 

warned very a lot that overturning a precedent of that super-precedent kind 

of standing would sign that it was a political resolution. 

Here is a little bit of what he stated. 



And it’s significantly vital to point out what we do in overturning a case 

is grounded in precept, and never social stress, not political stress.


BREAM:  However Justice Kavanaugh was amongst those that stated, hey, hear, we 

have executed this earlier than when the courtroom thought we received this fallacious, one thing 

egregiously fallacious in our previous, it was a despicable resolution, and now we 

have progressed and we have to right this, he stated, an inventory of selections 

that show that the courtroom will do that once they suppose it’s a necessity. 

Here is slightly bit extra of what Justice Kavanaugh stated. 



the prior precedents are critically fallacious, if that, why then does not the 

historical past of this courtroom’s apply with respect to these {cases} tells us that 

the fitting reply is definitely a return to the place of neutrality, and 

not keep on with these precedents, in the identical method that each one these different {cases} 

did not?


BREAM:  So, we must see if there are a majority of justices who’re 

keen to go additional, not solely upholding Mississippi’s 15-week ban, which 

it gave the impression of right this moment — and you may’t predict till the votes are out — 

that they are keen to go, at the least a majority of them, down that path, 

however whether or not they’re keen to go the following step, overturning Roe or its 

progeny, Casey.

Whether or not they’re keen to do this, I do not know that the votes are there. 

We’re simply going to have to attend and see. The courtroom can have its first 

secret behind-closed-doors vote on Friday. However, from there, there might be 

months of drafting opinions, of attempting to steer and transfer votes. 

And it is in all probability going to be, Neil, not till the top of June, early July 

after we know what this courtroom decides. And, after all, that comes proper in 

the center of the midterm election — again to you.

CAVUTO:  Sure, I used to be simply considering the identical factor. 

Shannon Bream, thanks very, very a lot. 

Within the meantime right here, this complete difficulty of the 15 weeks you hear rather a lot about 

on this Mississippi regulation that claims abortions should not allowed after that 

stage, I introduced that up with the Mississippi governor, Tate Reeves, who 

was telling me there’s a purpose for that. Have a look. 


GOV. TATE REEVES (R-MS): There is no assure to an abortion in our U.S. 


However I might go step an additional and let you know that not solely is there not a 

assured proper. There’s additionally nothing in our United States Structure 

that might stop a state, a state like Mississippi, from implementing and 

putting cheap restrictions on abortions. 

CAVUTO:  And that restriction in your state’s case is after 15 weeks, 


REEVES:  Below the statute that’s being examined on the Supreme Court docket, it’s 

a 15-week ban.

CAVUTO:  Do you suppose it would develop into — and that the Excessive Court docket will affirm 

this and, for the primary time, a time interval by which you chop off all 

abortions, placing an precise time to it, after 15 weeks? 

REEVES:  I consider that, if the courtroom have been to learn america 

Structure, the person justices would learn the Structure, I believe 

they’d acknowledge that not solely was Roe incorrectly determined, however, additionally, 

I consider Casey was incorrectly determined in 1992. 


CAVUTO:  All proper, the governor of Mississippi, Tate Reeves.

Let’s get the learn on this from Geraldo Rivera. I do know he does not appear that 

{old}, however he was again there in 1973 following that case improvement. He was 

sort sufficient to hitch us. John Yoo, I do not suppose John was even born but, however 

I might be fallacious, the previous deputy assistant legal professional common, regulation 

professor on the College of California at Berkeley.

Gents, thanks bow.

Geraldo, to you on what might be shaping as much as be not possibly the turning it 

off, however altering Roe v. Wade. The place do you suppose that is going? 


are in favor of that conclusion. 

I consider that with, the tremendous conservative majority on this courtroom now, 

with Gorsuch, Coney Barrett, and Kavanaugh, the justices added by Donald 

Trump, it is now a 6-3 conservative supermajority. 

And I believe they’re very eager on overturning or modifying Wade. You additionally 

have the technological facet of it, Neil. Roe is predicated on viability, that 

is, the fetus’ potential to stay exterior the womb independently. And in 1973, 

21 to 24 weeks possibly. This 15-week Mississippi regulation is getting fairly shut, 

because the know-how improves for caring for fetal well being. 

So I consider that you’ve a really fraught circumstance right here, the place the 

conservatives are able to switch profoundly Roe v. Wade. I consider 

that that’s the odds-on vacation spot the place the courtroom is headed proper now, 


CAVUTO:  In the event that they do line up, as Geraldo stated, John, to their philosophical 

bent, it is a 6-3 conservative courtroom.

It definitely was mirrored in lots of the questioning from the justices. 

What did you be taught from that? 


clarify I used to be round for Roe, however I do not bear in mind it.


YOO:  So — however I agree with Geraldo’s learn.

You’ve got a conservative supermajority. You had Chief Justice Roberts, whose 

vote could not matter right here as a result of you may have these 5 different conservative 

justices, throwing out a compromise that sounds rather a lot like what you have been 

discussing, Neil, the place he may say, OK, Roe vs. Wade requires us to 

strike down legal guidelines that intrude with abortion earlier than viability, which is 

round 23, 24 weeks of being pregnant. 

Robert says, nicely, what’s so dangerous about 15 weeks? Perhaps which means we toss 

out the Roe-Casey framework, however we are going to nonetheless enable a proper to abortion up 

to fifteen weeks?

The attention-grabbing factor is, you did not hear another justices taking the 

bait for that compromise. In truth, I believe probably the most startling factor to me 

listening to arguments was that Justice Kavanaugh, who’s an enormous query 

mark, actually might be the fifth vote right here to strike down or overturn Roe, 

he truly appeared fairly clear that he wasn’t going to pay a lot deference 

to previous choices, and he thought the courtroom ought to simply be impartial on 


He repeated that a number of instances within the oral argument. I believe that might 

have been — that is in all probability been a shock for lots of courtroom watchers to 

see Kavanaugh come out so overtly in opposition to precedent and probably in opposition to 


CAVUTO: Attention-grabbing.

Geraldo, in listening to Justice Sotomayor on this query of viability of 

the fetus, for lack of a greater clarification — you guys are nice attorneys. 

I am not. However I’ve watched sufficient final reveals to develop into an knowledgeable. 

However I am curious, Geraldo. She was asking in regards to the viability of that fetus 

and what’s so particular at the moment, at that second, referring to the actual fact, 

for {dead} folks, you might poke them on the foot or the hand and that they 

would have a response, however that did not imply that they have been alive. 

I do not fairly know what she was getting at, however the level being that there 

was nothing magical to that point or studying into life at the moment. What 

did you make of that? 

RIVERA:  I believe the courtroom, Neil, has struggled over the many years to discover a 

line the place the rights of the lady are actually subordinate to the rights of the 

fetus. At what level does that occur? That’s viability.

In order that they’re attempting to attract the road. And so they’re combating it. Nevertheless it 

is evident that viability as outlined in 2021 might be, I believe, what they dangle 

their hats on, and what — the justification that they use to overturn this 

stare decisis, this idea that as a result of a regulation, as a result of a choice has been 

in place for many years and has stood so many authorized challenges, it needs to be 

given a profound deference. 

However I actually do consider — I believe that what President Biden has to do 

proper now’s to remind America of the motion that came about once I was a 

regulation college graduate in 1969 and 1970, the motion whereby they wished to 

get abortions out of the again alleys.

CAVUTO:  Proper. 

RIVERA:  And so they have been speaking in regards to the ladies who died with coat hangers 

caught up into their wombs attempting to abort the fetus themselves, and to 

present a protected, authorized — that is what Roe was about, is a single pregnant 

poor girl in Texas, who wished to — a protected abortion, and could not afford 

to go to New York or someplace else to get one. 

So I — that is very emotional. It is fraught with all of those competing 

equities. Faith is deeply concerned on this. However I consider that what they 

will do is, they may use viability and transfer that — transfer that line again 

from 24 weeks, 23 weeks, that John instructed, and get it decrease and decrease 

and nearer and nearer to Mississippi. 

And, as Roberts stated, Justice Roberts, Chief Justice Roberts stated, why not 

15 weeks? So, I actually do — I am not stating my choice, Neil. 

CAVUTO: Understood.

RIVERA:  I am simply saying that that is what I consider will occur with this 

courtroom because it struggles with this epic, epic downside right here.

CAVUTO:  John Yoo, not an excessive amount of time left, however I am curious, if it 

then reverts to one thing like Geraldo stated, the place the 24 weeks, and transfer 

that to fifteen weeks, the analogy that some have been utilizing to say, all proper, then 

completely different folks must go to completely different states, the place there are different 

legal guidelines, however would then 15 weeks be the regulation of the land?

I did not perceive that. 

YOO:  No, 15 weeks is simply Mississippi’s selection. 

If Roe will get overturned, we needs to be clear that does not imply abortion is 

banned all through the nation. It simply returns it to the states, like 

Mississippi, to make their very own choices. And that is a part of what 

a number of…

CAVUTO:  So, a state like…


CAVUTO:  … that is perhaps nonetheless on the 24 just isn’t affected by this 


YOO:  Sure. Proper. 

In truth, this simply means the Supreme Court docket will cease drawing these strains. 

CAVUTO:  I see.

YOO:  Partly, the courtroom was saying, it is too onerous. Let legislatures do it. 

Let states do it. 

CAVUTO:  However which means individuals are working backwards and forwards to completely different 

states, relying on what has the fewest restrictions, proper?

YOO:  Sure. Sure. 

RIVERA:  Ohio, my state, Neil, has a fetal heartbeat regulation, the place, should you can 

detect a heartbeat within the fetus, that is the place abortion turns into unlawful. 

CAVUTO:  I see.

RIVERA:  I imply, that might be as early as six weeks. 

CAVUTO:  All proper.

RIVERA:  I believe that these legal guidelines in Ohio and comparable states, these legal guidelines 

might be dominated unconstitutional.

However I do suppose that there is going to be some motion right here, and it is not 

going to please all people.

CAVUTO:  Sure, it’s a divisive difficulty, gents, as you identified, 

whether or not you bear in mind it actually or not 50 years in the past, however some adjustments, 

possibly some very large ones, afoot. 

I need to thank them. I need to thanks. 

Right here comes “THE FIVE.”
