From the September 19 edition of Fox News' The Five:

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): All right, Jesse. We need to hear from her, don't we?

JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): We do. I don't think we are going to.

[...]

I don't want to cast any doubt on her allegations but the way they are dragging this out now it's become so political, Greg, that it's gotten away from the actual alleged crime. And now it's about the process and the nomination of this guy. She's not doing things-- the Democrats aren't doing things in a way that people would do if she was a true victim. If you go out and you say the first thing, you hear Kavanaugh's name, you call The Washington Post and then you call your congresswoman and then you call Dianne Feinstein and you say you don't want to come forward because you want to be anonymous but at the same time you take a polygraph test, and when they ask you how did you pay for the polygraph, you don't say how you paid for it.

[...]

It's just way, way too suspicious to what's going on. I wanted to believe her. I still kind of believe she believes something happened but it doesn't sit right. 

GUTFELD: The timing makes it suspicious.
