LEE IS JOINING US LIVE FROM OHIO GIVE US ALL THE HIGHLIGHTS, MJ >> Reporter: YEAH THIS WAS A FIERY DEBATE LAST NIGHT HERE IN WESTERVILLE, OHIO

AND WE SAW ONE OF THE CLEAREST SIGNS YET THAT SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN IS SEEN AS A FRONT RUNNER IN THE DEMOCRATIC RACE FOR PRESIDENT SHE TRIED TO DEFLECT CRITICISM COMING AT HER ALL NIGHT FROM ALL DIRECTIONS SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN UNDER ATTACK AT TUESDAY'S DEMOCRATIC DEBATE PRESSED ON HOW SHE PRESS ON SANDERS' MEDICAID FOR ALL PLAN >> COST WILLS GO UP FOR THE WEALTHY THEY WILL GO UP FOR BIG CORPORATIONS

I WILL NOT SIGN A BILL INTO LAW THAT DOES NOT LOWER COSTS FOR MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES >> Reporter: WARREN'S MODERATE RIVALS UNSATISFIED WITH HER ANSWER >> YOUR SIGNATURE IS TO HAVE A PLAN FOR EVERYTHING EXCEPT THIS >> I APPRECIATE ELIZABETH'S WORK, BUT AGAIN, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PLAN AND A PIPE DREAM IS SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY GET DONE

>> Reporter: SENATOR AMY KLOBUCHAR ALSO CRITICIZING WARREN'S WEALTH TAX PLAN >> I WANT TO GIVE A REALITY CHECK HERE TO ELIZABETH BECAUSE NO ONE ON THIS STAGE WANTS TO PROTECT BILLIONAIRES NOT EVEN THE BILLIONAIRE WANTS TO PROTECT BILLIONAIRES WE JUST HAVE DIFFERENT APPROACHES >> Reporter: THE MASSACHUSETTS SENATOR FIGHTING BACK

>> BUT I THINK AS DEMOCRATS WE ARE GOING TO SUCCEED WHEN WE DREAM BIG AND FIGHT HARD NOT WHEN WE DREAM SMALL AND QUIT BEFORE WE GET STARTED >> Reporter: WARREN NOT THE ONLY CANDIDATE ON STAGE ON THEIR HEELS FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN DEFENDING HIS SON HUNTER IN THE WAKE >> MY SON DID NOTHING WRONG

I DID NOTHING WRONG I CARRIED OUT THE POLICY OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT IN ROOTING OUT CORRUPTION IN UKRAINE >> Reporter: BIDEN EXPLAINING WHY HE BELIEVES HE'S TRUMP'S TARGET >> HE'S GOING AFTER ME BECAUSE HE KNOWS IF I GET THE NOMINATION, I WILL BEAT HIM LIKE A DRUM

>> Reporter: SENATOR SANDERS RETURNING TO THE CAMPAIGN AFTER A HEART ATTACK READY TO MOVE ON FROM QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS HEALTH >> SENATOR SANDERS, I WANT TO START WITH YOU WE'RE MOVING ON >> I'M HEALTHY AND FEELING GREAT, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO RESPOND TO THAT QUESTION >> Reporter: ON GUN CONTROL, MAYOR PETE BUTTIGIEG IMPLYING BETO O'ROURKE'S MANDATORY BUYBACK IS UNACHIEVABLE

>> WE CANNOT WAIT FOR PURITY TESTS WE HAVE TO JUST GET SOMETHING DONE >> THIS IS NOT A PURITY TEST THIS IS A COUNTRY THAT LOSES 40,000 OF OUR FELLOW AMERICANS EVERY YEAR TO GUN VIOLENCE THIS IS A CRISIS

WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT >> I DON'T NEED LESSONS FROM YOU ON COURAGE POLITICAL OR PERSONAL EVERYONE ON THIS STAGE IS DETERMINED TO GET SOMETHING DONE >> Reporter: BUTTIGIEG ALSO CLASHING WITH FELLOW COMBAT VETERAN TULSI GABBARD OVER PRESIDENT TRUMP'S DECISION TO WITHDRAW TROOPS FROM SYRIA >> WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, MAYOR PETE, IS THAT YOU WOULD CONTINUE TO SUPPORT HAVING U

S TROOPS IN SYRIA FOR AN INDEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME TO CONTINUE THIS REGIME CHANGE WAR >> WHAT WE WERE DOING IN SYRIA WAS KEEPING OUR WORD THIS PRESIDENT HAS BETRAYED AMERICAN VALUES OUR CREDIBLE IS IN TATTERS

>> Reporter: ONE TOPIC ALL THE CANDIDATES CAN AGREE ON — >> WE HAVE TO IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT >> I SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT >> I DON'T THINK THIS IMPEACHMENT PROCESS IS GOING TO TAKE LONG AS A FORMER PROSECUTOR, I KNOW A CONFESSION WHEN I SEE IT >> EVERY CANDIDATE HERE IS MORE DECENT, MORE COHERENT, AND MORE PATRIOTIC THAN THE CRIMINAL IN THE WHITE HOUSE

>> Reporter: SENATOR CORY BOOKER AGAIN ASKING THE FIELD TO LOOK AT THEIR COLLECTIVE GOAL >> TEARING EACH OTHER DOWN BECAUSE WE HAVE A DIFFERENT PLAN IS UNACCEPTABLE I HAVE SEEN THIS SCRIPT BEFORE IT DIDN'T WORK IN 2016 AND IT WILL BE DISASTER FOR US IN 2020

>> Reporter: NOW, SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS WALKING OFF THE DEBATE STAGE LAST NIGHT TO SOME GREAT POLITICAL NEWS CONGRESSWOMAN ILHAN OMAR ANNOUNCING LAST NIGHT THAT SHE IS ENDORSING SENATOR SANDERS AND CNN HAS ALSO LEARNED THAT CONGRESSWOMAN ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ AND RASHIDA TLAIB ALSO PLAN TO ENDORSE HIM OVER THE WEEKEND >> THOSE ARE VERY INTERESTING DEVELOPMENTS THANK YOU SO MUCH >>> SO ELIZABETH WARREN REPEATEDLY WAS ATTACKED BY HER RIVALS FOR THE FIRST >>> THERE IS SO MUCH TO DISCUSS FROM LAST NIGHT'S PRIMARY DEBATE

A DIFFERENT WORLD JOINING US TO TALK ABOUT UT NOW, TERRY McAULIFFE AND DAVID GREGORY DAVID, YOU'RE JUST WAKING UP TO JOIN US TO JOIN THE FUN THIS MORNING BESIDES THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO WON LAST NIGHT >> I DO AGREE THAT JOE BIDEN SEEMED TO FADE

I ACTUALLY THOUGHT WARREN WAS STRONG BUT THEN I THOUGHT THERE WERE A COMPILATION OF MODERATES KBROUN, MORE MODERATE THAN HER BUTTIGIEG, KLOBUCHAR WHO ACTUALLY DID WELL THERE WAS NOT A CLEAR WINNER OTHER THAN THIS PERCEPTION ON THE STAGE THAT EVERYONE HAD TO GO AFTER HER >> WHO STOOD OUT TO YOU? >> IRS IF OF ALL, LET ME SAY FOR THE DEMOCRATS

I THINK THE WHOLE ISSUE AROUND UKRAINE HAS UNITED THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY YOU SAW ALL THE CANDIDATES COMING TOGETHER LAST NIGHT TRUMP HAS REALLY UNIFIED US I HAVEN'T SEEN OUR PARTY IN A VERY LONG TIME SO ON THE ISSUE OF UKRAINE AND IMPEACHMENT

I THOUGHT AMY KLOBUCHAR HAD A GOOD NIGHT I THOUGHT THE FRONT RUNNERS DID WHAT THEY HAD TO DO BERNIE LOOKED GOOD, A MAN WHO HAD A HEART ATTACK HE LOOKED GREAT BIDEN DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO ON THE ISSUES OF UKRAINE

>> WHEN YOU SAY DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO, DO YOU MEAN THAT HE DIDN'T HURT HIMSELF BUT HE DIDN'T HELP HIMSELF? >> WHEN YOU'RE A FRONT RUNNER, YOU DON'T WANT TO HURT YOURSELF UP IN THE STAGE YOU WANT TO CONTINUE TO BE THE FRONT RUNNER YOU WANT TO CONTINUE TO GO OUT AND RAISE MONEY LISTEN, ELIZABETH WARREN TOOK OUT A LOT OF INCOMING LAST NIGHT SHE'S RUN A VERY GOOD CAMPAIGN

A LOT OF POLICY I THINK SHE'S GOT TO DO A BETTER JOB OF ANSWERING THE ISSUE WITH THE MIDDLE CLASS GOING TO PAY MORE TAXES WITH MEDICARE FOR ALL SHE'S GOT TO DEAL WITH THAT ISSUE >> SHE DOESN'T ANSWER IT SHE'S GOT TO ANSWER IT

>> I DISAGREE WITH YOU A LITTLE BIT I THINK FOR DEMOCRATS TO BE UNITED AGAINST TRUMP IS NO GREAT CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION I DON'T THINK THAT'S A HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT I THINK THERE'S A HUGE IDEOLOGICAL RIFT IN THE PARTY ABOUT THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT AND THE ECONOMY ABOUT THE ROLE OF TAXES, HEALTH CARE

AND I THINK THAT IS WHAT'S IN EVIDENCE HERE AND IT'S REALLY — AND I THINK IF TRUMP AND HE'LL FIND HIS VOICE ON THIS IF HE COULD MAKE A STRONGER IDEOLOGICAL ARGUMENT AGAINST THE DEMOCRATS, IT WOULD BE VERY PROBLEMATIC FOR THE PROSPECTS FOR DEMOCRATS NEXT YEAR AND I THINK HE'LL TRY TO DO THAT BUT HE'S GOT SO MUCH OTHER STUFF THAT MAKES HIM BOTH A TARGET AND GIVES HIM SOME OFFENSIVE OPPORTUNITY

BUT THAT IDEOLOGICAL RIFT IS WHAT I THINK PLAYS OUT STRONGLY >> WITH MAYOR PETE WHO LAST NIGHT A LOT OF PEOPLE THOUGHT HAD HIS BEST PERFORMANCE, OR STRONGEST PERFORMANCE CERTAINLY THE MOST IN THE SPOTLIGHT SO FAR WAS HE TRYING TO ADDRESS THAT? PLAY CHESS HERE WHEN HE WAS GOING AFTER WARREN, WAS IT WARREN VOTERS HE WAS AFTER OR BIDEN VOTERS HE WAS AFTER? >> WELL, I THINK IT'S BOTH

I DON'T THINK IT'S GOING — HE'S NOT AS PROGRESSIVE AS SHE IS ON THESE BIG ISSUES I THINK SHE'S TRYING TO BE AN ALTERNATIVE TO BIDEN HE'S GOT ENOUGH PROGRESSIVE FEW DAYS I THINK IT WAS A STRONG PERFORMANCE I THINK SOME PEOPLE COULD LOOK AT HIM AND THINK HE'S PRESSING A LITTLE BIT

BUT I THOUGHT HE WAS STRONG YOU'VE GOT TO BE FORCEFUL UP THERE YOU'VE GOT TO FORCE THESE ISSUES AND I THINK HE FORCED BIDEN TO LOOK TO YOUR POINT, YEAH, A FRONT RUNNER IN SOME WAYS BUT IT'S NOT JUST CAUTIOUS

HE LOOKS LIKE HE'S FADING HE DOESN'T LOOK AS SHARP ON THESE ISSUES WE'LL GET TO THIS BUT ON THE IMPEACHMENT QUESTION, I DON'T THINK HE WAS GOOD ENOUGH ON THAT >> WHO DO YOU THINK STRUGGLED? >> I THINK IT WAS A TOUGH NIGHT I THINK BETO HAD A TOUGH NIGHT LAST NIGHT

BUT LISTEN I THINK FOR THE SECOND AND THIRD TIER, THEY DIDN'T DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO WE'RE NOW GOING TO GO TO A NEW STANDARD FOR THE DEBATE IN NOVEMBER I THINK FOUR OR FIVE NOW ARE GOING TO DROP OFF IT'S GOING TO BE A SMALLER STAGE IN NOVEMBER

AND SO I THINK TO THE OTHER CANDIDATES, YOU RUN OUT OF MONEY AT SOME POINT THAT'S WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN GOING FORWARD I GO BACK TO THE POINT, WHAT DEMOCRATS WANT TO DO, THEY WANT TO NOMINATE THEY WANT TO BEAT DONALD TRUMP BY FAR THAT IS WHAT SITS OUT THERE

AND WE WILL COME TOGETHER I DISAGREE A LITTLE BIT WITH DAVID I THINK THE IDEOLOGICAL ISSUES WILL BE PUT ASIDE AS WE GET CLOSER, SMALLER DEBATES THIS IS ABOUT BEATING DONALD TRUMP AND 92 MILLION PEOPLE DID NOT VOTE IN 2016

DID NOT SHOW UP AND EXERCISE THEIR RIGHT TO VOTE >> WHY DIDN'T YOU THINK BIDEN DID A GOOD ENOUGH JOB ON THE IMPEACHMENT QUESTIONS? >> I THINK HE FACES A REAL QUESTION ABOUT HUNTER BEING IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS UKRAINE THICKET AT A TIME WHEN IT WAS A BIG ISSUE THEN IT STINKS NOW >> IS IT JOE BIDEN'S JUDGMENT WHAT HUNTER BIDEN? >> I THINK IT IS HIS JUDGMENT

THE GUY WAS MAKING $50,000 A MONTH ON A BOARD BECAUSE HE'S THE VICE PRESIDENT'S SON? JOE BIDEN KNOWS THAT THAT WAS BAD JUDGMENT AND IT LOOKS EVEN WORSE NOW I JUST DON'T THINK IT'S GOING TO BE GOOD ENOUGH TO SAY, WELL, HE ADDRESSED THAT AND THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG THAT CAN BE TRUE I'M NOT MAKING AN EQUIVALENCY WITH WHAT WE'RE DEALING WITH HERE WE OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO ASSESS THAT AND SEPARATE IT FROM DONALD TRUMP'S BUSINESS

>> I HEAR SO MANY DEMOCRATS SAY WHY DON'T THE DEMOCRATS SAY LOOK AT WHAT DONALD TRUMP'S CHILDREN ARE DOING BECAUSE THAT'S NOT A — >> THAT'S BEEN BROUGHT UP WE BRING THAT UP WE CAN BRING UP ALL THESE THINGS AT ONCE — >> YOU THINK JOE BIDEN SHOULD HAVE SAID THAT? >> WELL, YES BUT HIS KIDS ARE DOING THAT, THAT'S THE STATUS THEY SHOULD HAVE? >> THAT'S WHY THEY'RE CAUGHT IN NOT BEING ABLE TO SAY THAT

THEY DON'T WANT TO USE DONALD TRUMP AS THE BAR >> I THINK THESE ARE LEGITIMATE QUESTIONS PEOPLE CAN DECIDE WHETHER IT'S DISQUALIFYING IN ANY WAY BUT THE IDEA IS, WELL, HE WASN'T DOING ANYTHING WRONG THERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY HE WAS MAKING THAT MUCH MONEY

AGAIN, JUST BECAUSE DONALD TRUMP SAYS IT DOESN'T AUTOMATICALLY MAKE IT WRONG THERE'S AN EMPHASIS ON IT THAT I THINK IS MISGUIDED WITHOUT EVIDENCE THAT SOMEHOW THERE ARE RAMPANT CORRUPTION BUT THE FACT THAT IT WAS GOING ON DESERVES SCRUTINY >> ALL RIGHT TERRY McAULIFFE, DAVID GREGORY

>> LET'S SHOUTOUT THE NATIONALS GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES >> YOU FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT THAT >> THAT IS THE NEWS OF LAST NIGHT >> I'M THRILLED FOR BOTH OF YOU >> WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? >> WASHINGTON FANS ARE TERRIFIC? I FEEL LIKE THAT WAS ELIZABETH WARREN SAYING THANKS TO BARACK OBAMA

>> I THINK THE COST WILL GO DOWN >> I DIDN'T ANTICIPATE THIS BEING THE MOST HEATED PART OF THE CONVERSATION THANK YOU VERY MUCH >>> COMING UP ON "NEW DAY," WE'LL SPEAK WITH FIVE OF THE CANDIDATES ON THE DEBATE STAGE LAST NIGHT SENATORS CORY BOOKER, KAMALA HARRIS, MAYOR PETE BUTTIGIEG, AND BETO O'ROURKE

>>> NEW REVOLUTIONS FROM A STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL TESTIFYING IN THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY WHAT HE SAYS HAPPENED WHEN HE SPOKE OUT ABOUT RUDY >>> IT'S BEEN ANOTHER EVENTFUL 24 HOURS IN THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY A STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL HAS REPORTEDLY TESTIFIED THAT HE WAS TOLD TO, QUOTE, LAY LOW AFTER COMPLAINING ABOUT RUDY GIULIANI'S EFFORTS TO UNDERMINE US FOREIGN POLICY IN UKRAINE

THEN ACTING CHIEF OF STAFF MICK MULVANEY REPORTEDLY TOOK THE LEAD IN DICTATING WHO WOULD OVERSEE THE UKRAINIAN RELATIONSHIP CNN HAS ALSO LEARNED THAT A GRAND JURY HAS SUBPOENAED FORMER GOP CONGRESSMAN PETE SESSIONS OVER MATTERS CONNECTED TO RUDY GIULIANI AND HIS TWO ASSOCIATES WHO WERE ARRESTED TRYING TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY LAST WEEK THERE'S A LOT TO TALK ABOUT LET'S BRING BACK DAVID GREGORY, CNN POLITICAL ANALYST THERE'S SO MUCH HAPPENING EVERY DAY DAVID

SO LET'S TALK ABOUT — GIULIANI IS IN TROUBLE IT SURE LOOKS LIKE IT MORE IS HAPPENING HE SEEMS TO BE THE CENTER OF THE WHEEL >> RIGHT

>> AND ALL ROADS ARE LEADING BACK TO HIM BEING IN TROUBLE AT THE MOMENT >> AND SOME OF THESE — SOME OF THE SUBPOENAS, HOW IT ALL ADDS UP AND FITS TOGETHER ISN'T CLEAR EXCEPT THAT THE SPECTER OF ILLEGAL CORRUPTION THAT CLOSE TO THE PRESIDENT WHEN GIULIANI SEEMS TO HAVE SO MUCH INFLUENCE OVER FOREIGN POLICY DECISIONS THAT WERE BEING MADE, AND TO ME I COME BACK TO WHERE IS THE ABUSE OF POWER THAT WOULD BE IMPEACHMENT? HOLDING UP THE MONEY FOR UKRAINE, IS THERE AN INFLUENCE ON THAT, IS THERE DOCUMENTATION AND TESTIMONY AROUND THAT AS WELL AS A PORTFOLIO INCLUDING, YOU KNOW, THE CLERIC AND OTHER ASPECTS WHERE GIULIANI'S OUTSIDE LOBBYING ACTUALLY GOES BEYOND, HEY, YOU SHOULD DO THIS BECAUSE LOBBYING IS NOT ILLEGAL BUT TO WHERE THERE IS A SHOUT OF FOREIGN POLICY

>> LOBBYING IS VERY ILLEGAL IF YOU'RE NOT A LOBBYIST AND GIULIANI'S GOT CLEAR LEGAL, PERHAPS, CRIMINAL ISSUES RIGHT NOW THAT WE'VE LEARNED FROM THIS GRAND JURY SUBPOENA THAT'S COMING OUT IT'S SEPARATE BUT RELATED HOW IT'S RELATED AND I DO THINK WE'RE GETTING A PICTURE OF HOW EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED YOU HAVE THIS GOING BACK MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS TO CREATE AN ALTERNATE SHADOW ON FOREIGN POLICY IN REGARDS TO UKRAINE

THE QUESTION IS WHY AND YOU SEE A PATTERN OF CAREER GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, DIPLOMATS, WITH LONG CAREERS OBJECTING BECAUSE THEY FELT IT WASN'T IN THE NATIONAL INTERESTS THAT THIS SHADOW FOREIGN POLICY WAS FOR POLITICAL GAIN YOU HAVE FIONA HILL TESTIFYING ON MONDAY YOU HAD THE AMBASSADOR YOVANOVITCH TESTIFYING LAST WEEK THAT'S THE PATTERN HERE

THAT MAY BE — OR THE QUESTION WILL BE, IS THAT AN ABUSE OF POWER IF YOU'RE CONDUCTING FOREIGN POLICY OUTSIDE OF THE REALM OF THE GOVERNMENT FOR YOUR OWN POLITICAL GAIN, IS THAT AN ABUSE OF POWER? >> I THINK IT IS I THINK IF IT'S SPECIFICALLY TO ENGAGE A FOREIGN POWER TO INVESTIGATE A POLITICAL OPPONENT AND TYING SOMETHING LIKE CRITICAL FOREIGN SECURITY AID TO AN ALLY, IF YOU'RE HOLDING THAT UP TO EXTRACT THAT PROMISE TO DIG UP DIRT ON A POLITICAL OPPONENT, I THINK THERE'S NO QUESTION AS WE DISCUSSED YESTERDAY, IT'S NOT JUST THESE CAREER DIPLOMATS, THERE ARE SOME POLITICAL APPOINTEES WHO SAID THAT'S NOT RIGHT

THAT'S WHY THERE'S BEEN SO MUCH TALK ABOUT JOHN BOLTON I THINK THE PRESIDENT HAS AMASSED QUITE A GROUP HERE YOU CAN'T JUST DISMISS IT AS THE BUREAUCRACY WHO COULD BE IDEOLOGICALLY AGAINST HIM NO HE'S GOT A WIDE SWATH OF PEOPLE SAYING THIS IS REALLY OUTSIDE OF THE BOUNDS HERE

>> IN TERMS OF MICK MULVANEY'S ROLE, WE HAVE INFORMATION ABOUT THAT FROM "THE WASHINGTON POST" HERE'S THE QUOTE WHEN SOME IN THE WHITE HOUSE QUESTION THE LEGALITY OF BLOCKING FUNDS TO UKRAINE, FUNDS APPROVED BY CONGRESS TO HELP FEND OFF ATTACKS ON ITS SOVEREIGNTY US

OFFICIALS SAID MULVANEY DETERMINED THE MONEY COULD BE TURNED ON AND OFF WITH NO LEGAL CONSEQUENCE WELL, AS WE TALKED ABOUT IN THE LAST HOUR, I'M NOT SURE HE DID ALL OF HIS DUE DILIGENCE IN TERMS OF THE POLITICAL CONSEQUENCE OF THIS >> NOT ONLY THAT, BUT YOU HAVE THE CHIEF OF STAFF, YOU KNOW, MAKING LEGAL DECISIONS WHICH SHOULD BE OF CONCERN TO PEOPLE THE FACT THAT THERE WAS A CUTOUT, THAT THEY SAID, LOOK WE'RE GOING TO HAVE CERTAIN PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO CUT OUT JUST TO WORK ON THE ISSUE OF I KNOW

IT'S NOT LIKE IT'S SOME SELECT GROUP IN THE WHITE HOUSE TO DEAL WITH A MAJOR THREAT THAT ARISES LIKE ON 9/11 IT'S WE'VE GOT THIS LITTLE PROJECT OVER HERE THAT RUDY GIULIANI'S RUNNING AND WE'VE GOT BILL BARR AND OTHERS POTENTIALLY INVOLVED AND WE'RE GOING TO ASSIGN A TEAM TO IT IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE IT WAS SEPARATED AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS PURELY ABOUT GETTING TO THE BOTTOM OF POLITICAL DIRT TO HELP THE PRESIDENT AND EVERYTHING WAS TIED TO THAT

AND WE KNOW THE LARGER PICTURE, TOO, IS THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE PRESIDENT WILL INVESTIGATE MUELLER AND BY THE WAY, WHAT HE'S DOING NOW, INVESTIGATING THE WHISTLE-BLOWER HIMSELF THAT'S THE PART >> LOOK I'VE WONDERED FOR THE LAST THREE WEEKS SINCE WE HAD THE TRANSCRIPT, WHAT WILL YOU LEARN MORE FROM ALL THESE

I THINK NOW WE KNOW WE KNOW IT WASN'T JUST THE PHONE CALL FROM THE PRESIDENT WE KNOW THE MONTHS THAT LED UP TO IT INCLUDING THE SERIES OF OBJECTIONS AND THAT MAY LEND CREDENCE TO QUESTIONS ABOUT ABUSE OF POWER >> ENA THE WHISTLE-BLOWER WOULD SEEM LIKE A FULSOME LA >>> BERNIE SANDERS ON THE DEBATE STAGE LAST NIGHT AFTER SUFFERING A HEART ATTACK >> AND LOOKING GREAT AND JUST AS RIGOROUS AS EVER

>> SPRY >> OKAY IF YOU SAY SO I DON'T KNOW IF I WOULD USE THE TERM SPRY FOR BERNIE SANDERS, BUT DEFINITELY GAVE AN ENERGETIC DEBATE >> SOME SAY SPRY

IT'S WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE DEBATE THAT'S GARNERING THE MOST ATTENTION FOR BERNIE SANDERS CNN HAS LEARNED THAT REPRESENTATIVE ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ AND TWO MEMBERS OF HER SO-CALLED SQUAD WILL ENDORSE BERNIE SANDERS AT THIS BIG RALLY HERE IN NEW YORK CITY THIS WEEKEND BACK WITH US NOW, CNN COMMENTATOR BAKARI SELLERS WHO HAS ENDORSED KAMALA HARRIS ANGELA RYE AS WELL THIS IS THREE ENDORSEMENTS IN ONE DAY FROM THE PROGRESSIVE WING OF THE PROGRESSIVE WING OF THE PROGRESSIVE WING OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

>> ALL RIGHT, JOHN ALL OF THE PROGRESSIVE WINGS >> WHAT DOES IT DO? >> I THINK IT IS PHENOMENAL FOR SENATOR SANDERS I THINK IF WE ARE VERY HONEST, NOT THE SO-CALLED SQUAD, THE REAL SQUAD THEY'VE ENGAGED A ENTIRE SQUAD OF FOLKS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY WHO HAVE BEEN DISENCHANTED WITH POLITICS

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ HAS A TREMENDOUS FOLLOWING AND WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE WORK OF ILHAN OMAR AND THE WORK OF RASHIDA TLAIB AND THE WAYS IN WHICH THEY ENGAGE THE POLITICAL PROCESS, VERY AUTHENTICALLY AND IN THEIR MOST TRANSPARENT TRUTHFUL SELVES, I THINK IT DOES A LOT FOR HIS BASE AND IT GOES RIGHT TO THE HEART OF THE AGE ISSUE THAT WE STARTED TALKING ABOUT YESTERDAY ON THIS NETWORK >> SO ANGELA HAS ALL THESE UNICORNS AND FLOWERS AND BUTTERFLIES BUT THERE IS — >> THAT'S A LITTLE SHADY THIS MORNING IS THAT WHAT'S GOING ON? >> NO SHADE

NO SHADE BUT SERIOUSLY THAT WAS VERY GLOWING BUT THERE IS A NEGATIVE OR TWO ONE, YOU HAVE PEOPLE WHO ARE TRADITIONALISTS IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WHO FEEL THAT THESE THREE OR FOUR KIND OF HAVE SHIFTED THE PARTY FROM WHAT IT WAS >> AYANA'S NOT AN ENDORSEMENT

>> SO THREE BOTTOM LINE IS WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS GROUP, IT DEPENDS WHERE YOU SIT IN THE SENATE >> ABSOLUTELY >> BUT IT IS GREAT TO ENERGIZE HIS CAMPAIGN BUT THERE IS ALSO ANOTHER NEGATIVE

OMAR HAS SOME VERY PERSONAL ISSUES RIGHT NOW AND THAT'S ON THE FOREFRONT SO WE HAVE TO SEE HOW THIS — >> IS IT? >> YEAH, IT IS I REALLY FEEL LIKE IT'S ON THE FOREFRONT OF LIKE A RIGHT WING >> I THINK THAT BOTH OF YOU GUYS ARE CORRECT HERE, BECAUSE BERNIE SANDERS WHO HAS SEEN SOME SLIPPAGE, WHETHER OR NOT IT'S BEING TAKEN BY ELIZABETH WARREN OR WHOMEVER, I THINK THIS WILL STOP THAT

AND I THINK THAT THOSE VERY LIP RAL VOTERS WE SEE ALL THESE POLLS AND HIM DECLINING AND VERY LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE VOTERS YOU WILL BEGIN TO SEE THAT HEMORRHAGING STOP THIS STAR POWER, THIS IS GOING TO BE AMAZING WITH THESE INDIVIDUALS BERNIE SANDERS DID AN AWESOME JOB LAST NIGHT

I MEAN, I THINK THERE WAS A LOT OF, YOU KNOW, EXPECTATION, A LOT OF CONCERN AROUND BERNIE SANDERS AND PEOPLE NOPE I'M NOT SOMEBODY WHO HEAPS PRAISE ON BERNIE SANDERS ALL THE TIME ON HIM BUT HE CAME READY TO PLAY HE WAS VERY GOOD HE WAS ON MESSAGE

>> THREE HOURS >> IF ANYBODY HAS DISCIPLINE, IT'S BERNIE SANDERS I DO THINK THAT APRIL DOES HAVE A POINT, THOUGH, BECAUSE BERNIE SANDERS' PROBLEM HAS NEVER BEEN THE PROGRESSIVE WING OF THE PARTY HE WILL UTILIZE THIS TO SHORE THIS UP WHAT THIS DOESN'T HELP IS A SUPERTUESDAY PROBLEM

RIGHT? AND HE HAD THAT BACK IN 2016 THAT PROBLEM STILL REMAINS THERE TODAY HE HAS A PROBLEM WITH BLACK VOTERS HE HAS A PROBLEM SPECIFICALLY WITH BLACK OLDER VOTERS >> WHY WOULDN'T THIS HELP THESE WOMEN OF COLOR IN CONGRESS ENDORSING — >> I ACTUALLY THINK THAT THERE ARE SOME ENDORSEMENTS THAT WOULD HELP

MARSHA FUDGE, I KNOW SHE'S ALREADY WITH SENATOR HARRIS BARBARA LEE, ET CETERA MAXINE WATERS, FOR EXAMPLE I ACTUALLY THINK ONE OF THE LARGEST ENDORSEMENTS IN THIS DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY, I LOVE AOC AND I LOVE THE SQUAD AND I KNOW PRESLEY IS DOING HER OWN IN MASSACHUSETTS

BUT I THINK ONE OF THE LARGERS ENDORSEMENTS IS MAXINE WATERS I THINK BECAUSE THE VOTER IS OLDER AND BECAUSE THERE IS AN OLDER BLACK FEMALE VOTER,CEPTIV MAXINE WATERS THIS IS A BIG MOMENT FOR BERNIE SANDERS CAMPAIGN >> HE HAS A BIGGER PROBLEM THE BIGGER PROBLEM HE HAS STOOD ON THAT STAGE FOUGHT AND WAS A CLEAR FRONT RUNNER LAST NIGHT

THAT'S ELIZABETH WARREN THIS ABSOLUTELY DILUTES HER LEAD IF HE GAINS TRACTION WITH THOSE FOLKS AS MUCH AS HE IS PROGRESSIVE, SHE'S CHIPPED RIGHT AWAY >> THIS IS POSITIVE AND I AM MORE HAPPY THAT THEY ARE NOT ON THE SIDELINES AND KIND OF SOME MEMBERS WANT TO PLAY COY

I'M GLAD THEY'RE IN THE FRAY I'M GLAD THEY'RE ENDORSING BECAUSE THEY BRING SO MANY TO THE FRONT >> I'M WONDERING WHAT THE TIPPING POINT WAS TO GO TO BERNIE SANDERS >> THIS WEEKEND WE MAY HEAR THAT LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT COULD BE JOE BIDEN'S PROBLEM

THAT COULD BE MONEY IT'S ANNOUNCED HE HAS ONLY $9 MILLION THAT IS COMPARED TO SANDERS' $337 MILLION WARREN $25

7 MILLION BUTTIGIEG, $234 MILLION THEN BIDEN BASICALLY $9 MILLION WHY SO LITTLE? >> HIS BURN RATE A HIGH

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MONEY IN THIS RACE BECAUSE ELIZABETH WARREN, THEY CAN GO BACK TO THEIR DONORS PETE BUTTIGIEG, KAMALA HARRIS, AND JOE BIDEN HAVE LARGER DONORS AND IT'S HARD TO MAX OUT IT'S HARD TO GO BACK TO THOSE PEOPLE

WHAT THIS IS SHOWING IS PETE IS FORMIDABLE ESPECIALLY IN IOWA TO JOE BIDEN AND IF JOE BIDEN SLIPS, THIS IS WHY I THINK KAMALA HARRIS AND CORY BOOKER STILL STAND A CHANCE OF WINNING THIS NOMINATION IF JOE BIDEN CONTINUES TO SLIP, THE PEOPLE WHO WILL PICK UP THOSE BLACK VOTES ARE NOT ELIZABETH WARREN AND PETE BUTTIGIEG I'M SORRY TO RAIN ON PEOPLE'S PARADE THIS MORNING AS YOU COME THROUGH THE SOUTH AND TUESDAY, THOSE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE CORY BOOKER OR KAMALA HARRIS

THE PEOPLE WHO CHOOSE TO — >> I DON'T KNOW I'M JUST GOING TO SAY THIS WE ARE HOW MANY MONTHS INTO IT AND, I MEAN, I'M LOOKING AT OBAMA COMPARING IT TO OBAMA AND WHEN HE RAN BUT WE'RE HOW MANY MONTHS INTO IT? THE BLACK VOTE IS A JUST NOT THERE RIGHT NOW WAIT, WAIT, WAIT

UNTIL IOWA I KNOW AND THEN SOUTH CAROLINA WITH BILL CLINTON BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I MEAN, BUT WHAT IS IT WHAT IS IT THAT IS NOT — THEY DON'T HAVE THE GLUE YET

AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS >> I'M NOT SAYING — >> THEY'RE NOT BARACK OBAMA THERE'S A DIFFERENCE THEY'RE TOTALLY DIFFERENT EVEN THOUGH THEY TRY TO TAKE SOME OF HIS I GUESS POLITICAL THEOLOGY AND THE WAY HE TRIES — >> WHAT IS THE QUESTION? >> I'M GOING TO SAY THIS

I'VE HEARD FROM BEING IN THE HBCU COMMUNITY, THEY'RE LIKE I DON'T KNOW YET YOU'VE GOT A LOT OF GREEKS, I DON'T KNOW YET AND THOSE ARE — THAT'S THEIR BASE AND THAT'S WHAT I JUST — I'M JUST NOT GETTING IT YET >> AND I APPRECIATE THAT

I THINK THAT THIS IS WHERE I WOULD — I DEFINITELY AGREE WITH YOU I THINK THAT THERE IS A CLEAR GAP WHEN YOU LOOK AT THAT GRAPHIC AGAIN, IF THEY CAN PULL IT BACK UP WITH KAMALA HARRIS' CASH ON HAND — THANK YOU VERY MUCH >> LOOK AT THAT

>> ASK AND YOU SHALL BE GIVEN >> WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS, THOUGH, AND YOU COMPARE KAMALA HARRIS' NUMBERS TO HER DEBATE PERFORMANCES, THERE'S A BRIDGE THAT NEEDS TO BE GAPPED BUT I ALSO THINK THE REALITY IS THIS CAN EASILY BE TURNED AROUND WITH A DIFFERENT DEBATE TEAM, WITH A DIFFERENT STRATEGY THE PEOPLE WHO TALKED IN THE FOCUS GROUP SHE'S USING THE SAME IT'S GOTTEN APPLAUSE LINES AT RALLIES

IT WORKS BUT YOU HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO STAND ON SAME WITH CORY BOOKER CORY BOOKER HAD A GREAT PERFORMANCE LAST NIGHT I THINK PEOPLE RESPONDED TO THAT BECAUSE HE SOUNDED LIKE A UNIFIER

IT WASN'T JUST ABOUT GOING AFTER TRUMP IT'S LIKE EVERYBODY UP HERE IS BETTER THAN DONALD TRUMP >> I AGREE WITH YOU I HOPE ONE OF THE THINGS I WAS JUST TEXTING, I WAS LIKE, I NEED SOMEBODY'S CONTACT INFO BECAUSE THEY NEED TO BE ABLE TO SEE THIS CLIP THAT CNN PLAYED SO THAT VOTERS CAN SEE WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT SENATOR HARRIS BUT THERE IS A CHANCE FOR SOMEBODY NOT NAMED ELIZABETH WARREN AND JOE BIDEN

>> I WANT TO SAY ONE LAST THING WHEN WE TALK ABOUT BURN RATES AND MONEY AND HOW MUCH PEOPLE ARE SPENDING, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SPENDING $40 MILLION A MONTH THAT IS CRAZY >> AND HE'S RAISING A TON >> RAISING A TON

>> YOU CAN'T COMPETE WITH THAT RIGHT NOW >> FOR JOE BIDEN WHEN YOU'RE NOT RAISING MONEY — >> CAN'T DO IT WITH POCKET CHANGE >> CAN I SAY SOMETHING QUICKLY? CASTRO WAS THE ONLY ONE LAST NIGHT TO TALK ABOUT ATATIANA JEFFERSON THAT CANNOT GO AWAY >> THANK YOU, FRIENDS

>> THANK YOU >>> WE'RE GOING TO SPEAK TO FIVE OF THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES WHO WERE ON THAT DEBATE STAGE IN THE NEXT TWO HOURS "NEW DAY" CONTINUES RIGHT NOW >>> THE DEMOCRATIC DEBATE, THE CANDIDATES MADE THEIR CASE ON HEALTH CARE AND IMPEACHMENT >> WE'VE GOT ONE SHOT TO MAKE DONALD TRUMP A ONE-TERM PRESIDENT

HOW WE TALK ABOUT EACH OTHER REALLY MATTERS >> THIS IS A COUNTRY THAT LOSES 40,000 AMERICANS TO GUN VIOLENCE THIS IS A CRISIS WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT >>> THIS IS THE MOST CONSEQUENTIAL PROCESS THE HOUSE CAN ENGAGE IN

BUT THEY'VE THROWN FAIRNESS AND PRECEDENCE TO THE WIND >> THIS IS DEADLY SERIOUS >> Announcer: THIS IS "NEW DAY" WITH ALISYN CAMEROTA AND JOHN BERMAN >>> ALL RIGHT WE WANT TO WELCOME OUR VIEWERS IN THE UNITED STATES AND ALL AROUND THE WORLD

THIS IS "NEW DAY" AND THE DUST IS SETTLING SOMEWHAT FROM LAST NIGHT'S CNN DEBATE IN OHIO AND ELIZABETH WARREN IS LEARNING THAT LIFE AS A FRONT RUNNER COMES AT A PRICE SHE WAS ATTACKED BY NEARLY EVERY CANDIDATE LAST NIGHT ESPECIALLY FOR AVOIDING QUESTIONS OR ANSWERS ABOUT THE COST OF HER MEDICARE FOR ALL PLAN FOR SEVERAL OF THE LOWER TIER DEMOCRATS, LAST NIGHT'S DEBATE, WELL, IT MAY HAVE BEEN THEIR LAST

THERE'S LESS THAN A MONTH LEFT TO QUALIFY FOR THE NOVEMBER DEBATE IN ATLANTA AND THE FIELD WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY BE WHITTLED DOWN BEFORE THEN FIVE OF THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES WILL JOIN US LIVE THIS MORNING FROM OHIO WITH THEIR BIG TAKEAWAYS FROM LAST NIGHT >>> ALSO, SIGNIFICANT NEW REPORTING IN THE IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION THIS MORNING SO MANY REVELATIONS FROM THOSE WITHIN THE ADMINISTRATION THAT LEARNED THE WHITE HOUSE IS GROWING FRUSTRATED

YESTERDAY A STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL TESTIFIED HE WAS TOLD TO LAY LOW AFTER COMPLAINING ABOUT RUDY GIULIANI'S EFFORTS TO UNDERMINE POLICY IN UKRAINE THAT'S WHEN MICK MULVANEY REPORTEDLY INTERVENED TO CHANGE CONTROL OF WHO WAS OVERSEEING THE UKRAINE RELATIONSHIP AND MULVANEY WAS REPORTEDLY A KEY PLAYER IN WITHHOLDING FUNDS FROM UKRAINE ALSO NEW LEGAL JEOPARDY POSSIBLE CRIMINAL JEOPARDY FOR RUDY GIULIANI SUBPOENAED PETE SESSIONS ON MATTERS CONNECTED TO GIULIANI AND HIS TWO ASSOCIATES WHO WERE ARRESTED LAST WEEK ALL OF THIS TOGETHER PAINT ASPICTURE OF A MONTHS' LONG EFFORT TO IMPLEMENT WHAT WITNESSES DESCRIBE AS A SHADOW OF FOREIGN POLICY, NOT NECESSARILY FOR NATIONAL INTERESTS, BUT THE PRESIDENT'S PERSONAL POLITICAL GAIN

A LOT TO GET TO, BUT WE'RE GOING TO START WITH THE DEBATE ENDED JUST A FEW HOURS AGO ONE OF THE PEOPLE ON THAT STAGE, SENATOR CORY BOOKER FROM NEW JERSEY WHO JOINS US THIS MORNING SENATOR BOOKER, THANK YOU FOR GETTING UP EARLY AFTER BEING AWAKE LATE >> THANK YOU, JOHN

>> I WANT TO PLAY SOME — >> APPRECIATE BEING WITH YOU AFTER A FEW HOURS OF SLEEP >> THE OUTSET OF THE DEBATE, YOU ISSUED MANY WARNINGS THROUGHOUT THE THREE HOURS ONE OF THEM WAS ON THE SUBJECT OF DISCUSSING IMPEACHMENT I WANT TO PLAY THAT MOMENT >> I'M HAVING DEJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN BECAUSE I SAW THIS PLAY IN 2016'S ELECTION

WE ARE LITERALLY USING DONALD TRUMP'S LIES AND THE SECOND ISSUE WE COVER ON THIS STAGE IS ELEVATING A LIE AND ATTACKING A STASSMAN THE ONLY PERSON SITTING AT HOME ENJOYING THAT WAS DONALD TRUMP >> THIS WAS IN RESPONSE FIRST TO QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STATE OF THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY AND SECOND TO WHAT HUNTER BIDEN SAID ON TV YESTERDAY WHICH HE SAID THAT HE MADE A MISTAKE WHEN HE TOOK THAT BOARD POSITION IN UKRAINE SO WHY DID YOU FEEL IT WAS IMPORTANT TO MAKE THAT POINT? >> WELL, YOU KNOW, AS I SAID, I SAW THIS IN 2016

DONALD TRUMP WOULD LEVEL SOMETHING THAT WAS A LIE AS CNN HAS DEBUNKED EXACTLY WHAT THIS SITTING PRESIDENT IS SAYING BUT YET WE STILL ELEVATE IT WE GIVE IT OXYGEN WE ALLOW HIS LIES TO BE USED, TO MAKE EVERYONE RESPOND I THINK WE COULD HAVE MADE NEWS LAST NIGHT BY NOT EVEN GIVING THAT LIE LIFE

BUT YET AGAIN IN THE SECOND SERIES OF QUESTIONS LAST NIGHT, WE WERE SUDDENLY RELIVING DONALD TRUMP'S LIES AND FRANKLY MAKING JOE BIDEN RESPOND TO THEM AND THAT'S JUST WRONG I THINK IT HURT US IN 2016 AND IT'S GOING TO HURT US IN 2020 IF WE ALLOW IT

>> YOU DON'T THINK JOE BIDEN WILL HAVE TO RESPOND TO THIS IF HE IS THE NOMINEE? >> AGAIN, THIS IS A SITTING PRESIDENT WHO USED HIS OFFICE FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL GAIN COMPROMISING US NATIONAL SECURITY AND HE IS TRYING TO DISTRACT FROM THAT BY ATTACKING JOE BIDEN WITH SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN THOROUGHLY DEBUNKED NO WRONG DOING WHATSOEVER

SO WHEN YOU ELEVATE THAT KIND OF LIE AND ATTACK AND GIVE IT SOME KIND OF PARITY WITH WHAT THIS IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE IS THAT DONALD TRUMP IS DOING, YOU ARE ASSERTING DONALD TRUMP AND ALLOWING HIM TO YET AGAIN DISTRACT FROM WHAT IS RELEVANT, IMPORTANT, URGENT WITH LIES AND ATTACKS >> SO THAT WAS ONE OF THE WARNINGS YOU GAVE LAST NIGHT WHICH SEEMED MORE DIRECTED PERHAPS AT THE MEDIA AT THE POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT BUT YOU HAD REPEATED WARNINGS I THINK FOR YOUR FELLOW DEMOCRATS ON STAGE ABOUT THE TENOR OF HOW THEY WERE ADDRESSING EACH OTHER AND PERHAPS THE TONE WITH WHICH THEY WERE ADDRESSING THE ISSUES WHY DID YOU ISSUE THAT WARNING MORE THAN ONCE? >> WELL, LOOK I'M RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT BECAUSE I THINK WE NEED A PRESIDENT THAT IS NOT ONLY STRONG ON THE ISSUES BUT CAN UNIFY OUR PARTY

WE WEREN'T UNIFIED WHEN WE WERE GOING INTO THE 2016 CONTEST WE WERE DIVIDED IN SOME WAYS AND A LOT OF THE ATTACKS THAT WE SAW THAT CAME IN FROM THE PRIMARY WENT INTO THE GENERAL ELECTION UNDERMINED OUR ABILITY TO WIN THE GENERAL ELECTION SO IT'S FINE TO DELINEATE YOUR DIFFERENCES WITH OTHER PRIMARY CANDIDATES BUT THE WAY WE DO IT MATTERS

IT CANNOT BE PERSONAL ATTACKS, TEARING FOLKS DOWN, DOING SO IN A WAY THAT WOUNDS US AS A PARTY AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE HAVE TO SHOW THAT UNITY THAT'S NECESSARY TO DEVELOP THE KIND OF STRENGTH IT NEEDS TO BEAT DONALD TRUMP AND AGAIN, I'M RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT NOT JUST BECAUSE OF MY IDEAS BUT BECAUSE I BELIEVE AFTER THIS PRESIDENT, WE NEED SOMEONE WHO CAN HEAL, THAT CAN BRING US TOGETHER AGAIN TO A COMMON PURPOSE AND COMMON CAUSE IF WE CAN'T UNIFY THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE A GREAT SUCCESS UNIFYING THE NATION >> TO BE CLEAR ABOUT YOUR IDEAS

AND HOW YOU WOULD IMPLEMENT THEM IN ONE OF THE QUESTIONS, AND I THINK THIS WAS WHERE YOU WERE CRITICAL OF THE RESPONSE OR THE WAY THAT OTHER CANDIDATES WERE ADDRESSING IT ONE OF THE QUESTIONS WAS ELIZABETH WARREN, HOW SHE WOULD PAY FOR MEDICARE FOR ALL AND WHETHER IT WOULD MEAN RAISING TAXES ON SOME MIDDLE CLASS AMERICANS AND SHE DIDN'T ANSWER SHE DIDN'T ANSWER THAT IT WOULD OR IT WOULDN'T RAISE TAXES

DOES SHE NEED TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION? BERNIE SANDERS HAS >> YEAH LOOK, EVERYBODY IS GOING TO HAVE TO DEFEND THEIR RECORD EVERYBODY SHOULD SPEAK TO THE ISSUES BUT AGAIN, WE CANNOT DO THAT IN A WAY THAT TEARS PEOPLE DOWN PERSONALLY

AND BECOMES AD HOMINEM ATTACKS YEAH, I'VE DONE THIS ON THE DEBATE STAGE DISTINGUISHED MYSELF FROM OTHERS WE HAVE TO ANSWER TO THAT BUT WE CAN DO THAT IN A WAY THAT ELEVATES THE PARTY, NOT DIVIDES IT

>> WE HEARD FROM A PANEL OF VOTERS NOT TOO LONG AGO WHO REACTED POSITIVELY TO YOUR DEBATE PERFORMANCE THEY MENTION YOU ALONG WITH AMY KLOBUCHAR AND ELIZABETH WARREN AND THEY DID LIKE THE MESSAGE OF UNITY HOW FAR CAN THAT TAKE YOU THOUGH, IS MY QUESTION YOU'VE BEEN CONSISTENT WITH THAT MESSAGE TO DATE AND YOU ARE WHERE YOU ARE IN THIS RACE

WHICH WAS ON THAT DEBATE STAGE WHICH IS A LOT MORE THAN OTHER CANDIDATES CAN SAY BUT NOT YET SEEING THAT BIG BUMP IN THE POLLS >> I'VE BEEN GRATEFUL THAT FOCUS GROUP AFTER FOCUS GROUP, DEBATE AFTER DEBATE PEOPLE TALK TO ME ABOUT WINNING T DEBATES WE'RE LEADING ALL OTHER CANDIDATES IN ENDORSEMENTS FROM LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIALS

ESPECIALLY IN A PLACE LIKE IOWA WHERE WE HAVE A STRONG TEAM GETTING PEOPLE LIKE LOCAL MAYORS AND STATE LEGISLATORS TO CAUCUS IN THOSE ROOMS, IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE THAT'S WHY I'M FEELING REALLY STRONG FROM BILL CLINTON TO JOHN KERRY, PEOPLE WHO WERE CONSIDERED BEHIND AND SURGED, EVEN WON IN IOWA WE ARE SHOWING THE SAME PATHWAY TO THE PRESIDENCY THAT EVERYBODY FROM JIMMY CARTER TO BARACK OBAMA SHOWED BUT LOOK, I'LL BE CLEAR

WE HAVE TO KEEP RAISING MONEY THAT'S WHY YOU'VE HEARD ME FROM THE DEBATE STAGE MAKE AN APPEAL FOR PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN THIS THEME, UNIFYING THEME, CALL TO CIVIC RACE FOR US TO HEAL AND SHOW THAT THE LINES THAT DIVIDE US ARE NOT AS STRONG AS THE TIES THAT BIND US IF PEOPLE BELIEVE IN THAT, WE'RE HOPING THEY'LL GO TO CORY BOOKERCOM, KEEP US IN THIS RACE HELP US TO GROW IN THOSE STATES

>> THIS WAS THE FIRST DEBATE SINCE THE HOUSE BEGAN ITS OFFICIAL IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY OF PRESIDENT TRUMP HOW DID THAT AFFECT THE DYNAMIC ON THE DEBATE STAGE LAST NIGHT? >> WELL, I THINK THERE'S SO MUCH TO TALK ABOUT IN THESE LAST COUPLE WEEKS THAT IT'S JUST DEVELOPING SINCE THE LAST DEBATE NOT ONLY IS THE IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS AND MORE TESTIMONY COMING OUT, IT'S NOT JUST CASTING A SHADOW THAT IN MANY WAYS IS DAMNING THIS PRESIDENT'S ACTIONS, BUT YOU HAVE ON TOP OF THAT WHAT THIS PRESIDENT'S DOING IN SYRIA PULLING THE RUG OUT FROM UNDER OUR TROOPS REALLY ENDANGERING THEM ATTACKING — ALLOWING THE KURDS TO BE ATTACKED

DRIVING THEM INTO THE HANDS OF OUR ENEMIES THE ASSAD RE SHEEM, THE IRANIANS ENDANGERING THE STATE OF ISRAEL THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS THIS PRESIDENT HAS DONE THAT CONTINUE TO DEMONSTRATE THE KIND OF GOD AWFUL PRESIDENT HE IS AND SO THERE WAS A LOT TO TALK ABOUT ON THAT DEBATE STAGE

ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HEAR THE COMMENTS OF DEMOCRATS ON THAT DEBATE STAGE BEING ECHOED WITH REPUBLICANS FROM LINDSEY GRAM TO OTHER FOREIGN POLICY REPUBLICAN LEADERS WHO JOINED DEMOCRATS IN THE FULL THROATED CONDEMNATION OF THIS PRESIDENT THESE ARE A LOT OF RELEVANT ISSUES WE HAD TO DISCUSS LAST NIGHT AND IT ONLY FIRES UP MY SENSE OF URGENCY IN THE GENERAL ELECTION TO STAND WITH DONALD TRUMP AND BEAT HIM BY EXPOSING HIM FOR THE FAILURE OF A PRESIDENT HE IS SOMEONE WHO HAS ENDANGERED HIS NATIONAL SECURITY BOTH WITH HIS FOREIGN POLICY DISASTROUS MOVES ALL THE WAY TO HIS VIOLATION OF HIS OATH OF OFFICE >> SO IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THIS WAS THE FIRST OF THE DEBATES THAT ROSARIO DAWSON WHOM YOU ARE DATING WAS AT — WAS THERE

HOW DID THAT CHANGE IT FOR YOU AND WHAT DID SHE THINK OF YOUR DEBATE PERFORMANCE LAST NIGHT? >> SHE'S A WORKING MOM AND SO SHE'S BEEN ON THE SET OF "BRIAR PATCH" THAT WRAPPED RECENTLY IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE FOR YOU TO IS YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER THERE JUST ABOUT IN THE FRONT ROW SO SHE WAS — SHE'S THE BEST BECAUSE SHE LIFTS ME UP AND SHE ALSO GIVES ME SOME INCREDIBLY GOOD CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM AT THE END WE WERE UP LATE LAST NIGHT TALKING ABOUT IT

BUT SHE LOVES EVERYBODY ON THAT STAGE AND HAS A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM SO IT WAS GOOD TO HAVE HER THERE LAST NIGHT I'M SURE SHE'LL BE THERE IN NOVEMBER HAVING A CONTEST TO HAVE A MEAL WITH HER AND I AT THE ATLANTA DEBATES >> YOU DON'T CARE TO TELL US WHAT THE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM WAS, DO YOU? >> I ACTUALLY WOULDN'T MIND TELLING YOU SOME OF THE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM IF YOU'RE THAT INTERESTED >> YES, GIVE ME ONE

>> YEAH LOOK, SHE WANTS MORE OF ME IN THE SAME WAY THOSE OF US WHO LIKE THE "WEST WING," LET BARTLETT BE BARTLETT SHE SAYS I'M AT MY BEST WHEN PEOPLE FEEL MY HUMOR AND SPIRIT AT THE END OF THE DAY THIS COUNTRY NEEDS SOMEONE WHO BRINGS A SPIRIT OF CIVILITY AND A SPIRIT OF FRANKLY UNITY

AND SHE JUST SAID, HAVE MORE FUN, RELAX EVEN MORE AND LET PEOPLE SEE THAT SPIRIT >> THAT MIGHT BE A POSITIVE ESSENCE FOR NOT JUST A CANDIDATE BUT A BOYFRIEND ANY TIME SOMEONE SAYS THEY WANT TO SEE MORE OF YOU, THAT'S A GOOD THING THANKS FOR BEING WITH US THIS MORNING APPRECIATE IT

>> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME >> ALL RIGHT >>> STILL AHEAD ON "NEW DAY," WE'LL SPEAK TO KAMALA HARRIS, AMY KLOBUCHAR, PETE BUTTIGIEG, AND BETO O'ROURKE >> THAT IS REALLY FUN THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION

>> WELL, YOU KNOW, HE LED WITH THE MOST POSITIVE OF THE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM I'M WONDERING IF THERE WAS ANY — >> I DOUBT MORE OF YOU >> LITERALLY SOMETHING YOU'VE NEVER SAID >> OKAY

>>> MEANWHILE, THERE ARE MORE WITNESSES TESTIFYING IN THE IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION
