saudi arabia's oil minister said that 50% of oil production has been restored and that saudi arabia will be back to full oil production by the end of this month. at the same time, the evidence is building that iran and rebels were behind the attacks. >> as the president said, we don't want war with anybody. but the united states is prepared. we are locked and loaded. >> vice president, today, echoing trump's tough talks, as u.s. officials say that it appears that the missiles were launched from southwest iran. saudi officials today say as much. >> all the indications and operational evidence and the weapons that were used in the terrorist attack indicate with initial evidence that that weapons were irani and weapons.

3:11 pm
but they are dismissing the ide idea. after searching her memory for six days. seven people say they heard about the incident, including her mother, but mostly just repeating that they can it identify kavanaugh. her book also reveals that she got help from silicon valley with sheryl sandberg advising her of hiring a lawyer. the media have largely ignored the reporting, despite liberal pressure, she has no confidence. it just didn't make sense. that, apparently, doesn't fit the narrative. bret. >> bret: howard, thank you. the former government is suing edward snowden, alleging that he violated nondisclosure agreements without giving the government an opportunity to

saudi arabia. in the meantime, u.s. intelligenceicials. they were used in the attack on the two saudi arabian oil fields last week in. they were fired from inside iran, officials say. some fell short. u.s. teams are on the ground collecting the debris from the weapons used in the attack, which knocked out half of their oil capacity. yemen could also have launched a small attack into southern saudi arabia. but the main attack came from inside iran. founding editor. national public radio, and josh holmes, former advisor to mitch mcconnell. there is a sense that there is a cautious move by this administration. >> he started out saying that he was locked and loaded. now he wants a response.
3:39 pm
he said over and over again he doesn't want to go to war. i would say that that's one of the most credible things he's said, because the last time there was a conflict like this, he called back the strike when it was practically in the mid . the question is, what is he going to do? what kind of measures does he want to take? >> it seems that that time is ending. the first reason it's ending is hydraulic fracking, which has made america energy independent. the second reason it's ending is that the trump administration has yet to impose a cost on iran towards maligned behavior that sends a signal towards iran that they can no longer continue attacks like these. >> bret: do we think though that the saudis are going to make an appeal to the united nations?
3:40 pm
would they be doing that? is that the path that were going to see? >> i think they welcome all the help that they can get. the question is whether that falls on deaf ears or not. to go back to matt's point, i don't think there's any question at this point about what iran is doing. it seems to me there have been 40 attacks that we know about. 40 attacks initiated by iran on interests in the area. including american drones that have been shot down. we know what they're trying to do. the question is whether or not we are going to acknowledge at some point that one country is at war, if not us. whether or not we are going to do anything to protect our allies and our interest in the region. at some point, the present is going to have to answer that question. >> so far, he's talked about meeting with no preconditions. he's talked about lifting the sanctions. i have no idea what the white house or 's iran strategy.
3:41 pm
do you? >> no. >> president trump: i have no meetings scheduled. i know they want to meet. i know they are not doing well as a country. >> sometimes they speak of unconditional talks. sometimes they speak of talks without precondition, and other times, they speak. their politics is a chaotic one and they do not know what they want. >> bret: let's be clear. when it comes to iran, that's the guy that matters. >> you can praise this administration for having a more restrained approach across the globe, really. but i think what we are working with here with iran is something that's been going on an awful long time. there's no question about what
3:42 pm
their intention is. they are trying to escalate this to the point of where they get some sort of an interaction with the united states. the question is whether it's on their term or our terms. >> bret: the accounting for that vote happening at this hour. take a listen. >> you want to prevent a left-wing government and a coalition for the arab parties? you do not want to do so go vot vote. who here hasn't voted? raise your hand. who has voted? great. all the rest, go and vote. vote blue and white. there is a blue and white flag. you want to wake up to a unified country? go vote. >> bret: at this hour, the early exit polls show that it doesn't look would, good for be.
3:43 pm
it's all about setting up a coalition government eventually. >> right. there are two contests. one is the actual vote. he may still have a few cards to play even if he is denied the majority. i think that when we look back on the selection, we might see fatigue as a little bit of a factor. he is the longest serving prime minister. that is no small feat. in the run-up to the selection, he has continued to make promise after promise, which i think has maybe alienated some of his core supporters. >> bret: how do you think the relationship is there question works to go that is an interesting question. he has used trump as more than a crutch. trump has been an incredible friend to.
3:44 pm
if he loses, what happens to trump's relationships with the is really government. >> i will say, i think it has less to do with the foreign policy. i think president trump is still extremely popular in israel. there is some fatigue. there has been a an awful lot f drama. i think even for his core supporters, at some point, you kind of have to turn the page on that. i'm not saying that this is going to be a definitive election. i think there is some underlying angst there. >> he may end up being a more

attack thing. i do think that this is telegraphing what a general election attack would look like on joe biden should he be the democratic nominee. we know that he's electable, according to the polls. but democrats understand that the second that this electable candidate wins the nomination, people will be questioning his age and his fitness. >> bret: here you go. >> try getting job care. we're talking 20 grand a year for someone to do that. why couldn't we provide an $8,000 tax credit for everybody who has child care costs? it would put 720 million women back in the workforce. >> bret: there are 330 million people in the united states of america. >> but you know what? maybe the old rules don't work

"new york times." how damaging and the big picture of the narrative for democrats? >> i think it's extremely damaging for "the new york times." for the democrats, it's a big issue, because it elevates the one thing that unifies the republican party. brett kavanaugh. as long as that's an issue, it helps the republican party. >> bret: okay panel,
