THE LEAD WITH JAKE TAPPER STARTS RIGHT NOW >>> A TRUMP CAMPAIGN DONOR JUST DROPPED A DIME ON THE TRUMP UKRAINE SCANDAL

THE LEAD STARTS NOW THE WHITE HOUSE TODAY STUNNINGLY JUST COMES OUT AND ADMIT IT YES, AID TO UKRAINE WAS TIED TO UKRAINE FULFILLING THE PRESIDENT'S POLITICAL DESIRES AFTER NEW DAMNING IMPEACHMENT TESTIMONY AND KEY AMBASSADOR AND PRESIDENTIAL APPOINTEE >>> BREAKING TODAY, THE PRESIDENT TAKING CREDIT FOR ENDING A BLOOD BATH, AT LEAST TEMPORARILY ONE HE HELPED START AFTER HE STRIKES A DEAL TO PAUSE THE CARNAGE IN SYRIA, BUT DIDN'T THE U

S JUST GET PLAYED? >>> PLUS, BEST LAID PLANS WARREN'S CAMPAIGN EXPLAINING HOW SHE WOULD PAY FOR HEALTH CARE AFTER IT WAS ATTACKED AS A PIPE DREAM BY FELLOW DEMO MICK MULVANEY CONFIRMED THE QUID PRO QUO THIS AFTERNOON >> WE DO THAT ALL THE TIME WITH FOREIGN POLICY WE WERE HOLDING UP MONEY AT THE SAME TIME FOR WHAT WAS IT, THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES

SO THAT THEY WOULD CHANGE THEIR POLICIES ON IMMIGRATION I HAVE NEWS FOR EVERYBODY GET OVER IT THERE'S GOING TO BE POLITICAL INFLUENCE IN FOREIGN POLICY >> THIS WAS STUNNINGLY BRAZEN

THE WHITE HOUSE CASTING A QUID PRO QUO, ONE TO SATISFY THE PRESIDENT'S DESIRE TO HAVE A QUOTE DEBUNKED CONSPIRACY THEORY, GIVEN CREDIBILITY, C CASTING THIS AS NO BIG DEAL WHEN IT IS A BIG DEAL >> THEY ALSO MENTIONED TO ME THE CORRUPTION RELATED TO THE DNC SERVER ABSOLUTELY NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT BUT THAT'S IT

THAT'S WHY WE HELD UP THE MONEY >> BEYOND THAT OF COURSE, THIS WAS THE WHITE HOUSE LYING BY OMISSION BECAUSE THE EVIDENCE IS NOT ONLY THAT THE QUID PRO QUO DEALT WITH THE DEBUNKED CONSPIRACY THEORY INVOLVIE IE ING THE 2016 ELECTI DNC SERVER, IT'S TIED TO A DEMAND FOR AN INVESTIGATION INTO VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN AND HIS SON, HUNT IR THE ROUGH TRANSCRIPT RELEASED BY THE WHITE HOUSE SHOWS PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYING TO UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT ZELENSKY AFTER HE BROUGHT UP MILITARY AID HIS COUNTRY NEEDS, QUOTE, I WOULD LIKE YOU TO DO US A FAVOR BECAUSE OUR COUNTRY HAS BEEN THROUGH A LOT AND UKRAINE KNOWS A LOT ABOUT IT THEN THEY DISCUSSED THE DEBUNKED CONSPIRACY THEORY AFTER WHICH TRUMP SAYS QUOTE, THE OTHER THING

THERE'S A LOT OF TALK ABOUT BIDEN'S SON, THAT BIDEN STOPPED THE PROSECUTION AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO FIND OUT ABOUT THAT IF YOU COULD LOOK INTO IT, IT SOUNDS HORRIBLE TO ME, UNQUOTE NOW EXPANDING ON THE QUID PRO QUO, MULVANEY NOTED THAT GORDON SONDLAND IN THE OPENING STATEMENT OF HIS TESTIMONY TODAY, ACKNOWLEDGED THE WHITE HOUSE WANTED THE UKRAINIANS TO PROVIDE A STATEMENT ABOUT HOW THEY WERE GOING TO DEAL WITH CORRUPTION, BUT MULVANEY LEFT OUT THAT SONDLAND ALSO TESTIFIED THAT TRUMP TOLD HIM TO TALK TO RUDY GIULIANI ON THIS AND QUOTE, GIULIANI EMPHASIZED THAT THE PRESIDENT WANTED A PUBLIC STATEMENT FROM PRESIDENT ZELENSKY COMMITTING UKRAINE TO LOOK INTO ANTICORRUPTION ISSUES GIULIANI SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED THE 2016 ELECTION AND BARISMA AS TWO TOPICS OF IMPORTANCE

THAT'S THE UKRAINIAN COMPANY THAT JOE BIDEN'S SON WORKED FOR SO ACCORDING TO SONDLAND AND TRUMP, THE QUID PRO QUO THAT MULVANEY AND THE WHITE HOUSE TODAY ADMITTED TO INCLUDED A DEMAND THAT THERE WOULD BE AN INVESTIGATION OF BARISMA AND THE BIDENS A REMINDER TO REPUBLICANS OUT THERE WHEN IT COMES TO ACCEPTING THIS AS A PRECEDENT, THE IDEA OF POLITICIANS USING THE POWER OF THEIR OFFICES TO DEMAND THAT VULNERABLE FOREIGN COUNTRIES INVESTIGATION THEIR OWN DOMESTIC POLITICAL RIVALS, SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE ALEX KICKS OFF OUR COVERAGE TODAY >>

>> A PLOK BUSTER PRESS CONFERENCE AT THE WHITE HOUSE TODAY MICK MULVANEY UNDERCUTTING THE PRESIDENT'S REPEATED DENIALS THERE WAS NO QUID PRO QUO WITH UKRAINE >> WE DO THAT ALL THE TIME WITH FOREIGN POLICY >> ADMITTING MUSONEY WAS HELD U UNTIL THE PRESIDENT GOT ASSURANCES, INCLUDING INTO WHETHER THE DN HAD A SERVER IN UKRAINE AS FOR ALLEGATIONS THAT THE PRESIDENT HELD BACK MILITARY AID FOR POLITICAL REASONS, MULVANEY DIDN'T MINCE WORDS

>> I HAVE NEWS FOR EVERYBODY GET OVER IT THERE'S GOING TO BE POLITICAL INFLUENCE IN FOREIGN POLICY >> MULVANEY ALSO MADE NO EXCUSES FRS REVELATIONS THAT IT WAS THE PRESIDENT'S PERSONAL LAWYER, RUDY GIULIANI, WHO WAS THE GATE KEEPER ON UKRAINE POLICY WHICH THE U

S AMBASSADOR TO THE EUROPEAN UNION, GORDON SONDLAND, TESTIFYIED TO TODAY ON CAPITOL HILL SAYING THAT HE AND HIS FELLOW DIPLOMATIC ENVOYS TO UKRAINE DIDN'T HAVE A CHOICE BETWEEN PURSUING A TRADITIONAL POLICY TO STRENGTHEN TIES OR WORK WITH GIULIANI I DID NOT UNDERSTAND UNTIL MUCH LATER, SONDLAND TOLD LAWMAKERS, THAT MR GIULIANI'S ATTENTION MIGHT HAVE ALSO INCLUDED AN ERAT TO PROMPT THE UKRAINIANS TO INVESTIGATE BIDEN OR HIS SON OR TO INVOLVE UKRAINIANS DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY INTO THE PRESIDENT'S 2020 RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN

>> IT'S CLEAR DONALD TRUMP AND RUDY GIULIANI WERE RUNNING A SHADOW FOREIGN POLICY AND THIS FOREIGN POLICY WAS BASICALLY TO E GET UKRAINE TO INVESTIGATE THE BIDENS >> SONDLAND, A LONG TIME REPUBLICAN DONOR WHO GAVE MONEY TO TRUMP'S INAUGURATION, MAYBE A TARGET WHEN HIS TEXT MESSAGES WITH THE TOP US DIPLOMAT IN UKRAINE CAME TO LIGHT AMBASSADOR BILL TAYLOR WRITING TO SONDLAND, I THINK IT'S CRAZY TOWITHHOLD POLITICAL ASSISTANCE

HE RESPONDED, THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN CLEAR, NO QUID PRO QUOS BUT SONDLAND WAS REPEATING TO TAYLOR WHAT THE PRESIDENT JUST TOLD HIM ON THE PHONE TODAY, SONDLAND CLAIMED WITHHOLDING FOREIGN AID IN ORDER TO PRESSURE A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO TAKE SUCH STEPS WOULD BE WRONG I DID NOT AND WOULDN'T PARTICIPATE IN SUCH UNDERTAKINGS >> WE ARE STARTING TO HEAR BACKLASH FROM THE WHITE HOUSE ABOUT MULVANEY'S COMMENTS

A SOURCE TELLING JIM ACOSTA THE PRESIDENT'S LEGAL TEAM WASN'T INVOLVED, ADDING IT WASN'T HELPFUL >> YOU THINK? THANKS SO MUCH VIVIAN, THIS IS IS VERY MUCH LIKE WHAT RUDY GIULIANI USED TO DO ALTHOUGH MAYBE HE'S TOO RADIO ACTIVE TO DO IT, WHICH IS GET AHEAD OF A STORY BY ADMITTING SOMETHING HORRIBLE AND TRYING TO CAST ANYTIME THE BEST LIGHT HE'S DONE THAT WITH THE STORMY DANIELS SCANDAL IS THAT WHAT MULVANEY WAS TRYING TO DO? ADMIT SOME OF THE QUID PRO QUO? >> IT'S NOT CLEAR BECAUSE HE CAME OUT TO TALK ABOUT A COMPLETELY UNRELATED TOPIC SO WHETHER OR NOT THE PRESS CONFERENCE SORT OF DEVELOPED A LIFE OF ITS OWN IN REAL TIME IS NOT CLEAR, BUT WHAT WE KNOW IS THAT THE PRESIDENT IS OUT OF TOWN AND THE WHITE HOUSE DECIDED TO PUT MULVANEY FORWARD TO ADDRESS SOME OF THESE ALLEGATIONS AND TO ECHO WHAT ALEX JUST SAID ABOUT THE PRESIDENT'S PERSONAL LAWYERS NOT REALLY KNOWING ANYTHING BEHIND THE PRESS CONFERENCE

WE SPOKE TO FOLKS AT DOJ WHO COULDN'T CORROBORATE A LOT OF WHAT THE CHIEF "USA TODAY" SAID SAID IF THERE'S A LINK, IT'S QUOTE NEWS TO US AND SO IT'S REALLY INTERESTING TO SEE DOESN'T SEEM LIKE THIS WAS A COORDINATED EFFORT BY ANY STRETCH >> SO EVEN IF YOU TAKE THE BIDENS OUT OF IT AND THEY'RE DEFINITELY A BIG PRT OF IT BY SONDLAND AND TRURMP'S OWN ADMISSION, YOU HAVE CREW YAN VERY, VERY VULNERABLE, DEPENDING ON MEETING MILITARY AID TO SAVE THE LIVES UKRAINIANS AGAINST THESE RUSSIAN INTERLOPERS INVESTIGATING THIS CRAZY CONSPIRACY THEORY

>> I FOUND IT VERY REVEALING THAT MULVANEY BROUGHT THIS UP PRESIDENT TRUMP JUST BROUGHT UP THE SERVER THE OTHER DAY THIS IS THE SAME CONSPIRACY THEORY HE TALKS ABOUT AND FOR MULL VANEY TO BASICALLY SAY SO WHAT, THIS IS A VERY TRUMPY MOVE I HEARD THE VOICE OF THE PRESIDENT IN WHAT HE WAS SAYING, WHICH IS THE YEAH, SO WHAT, I DID IT DEFENSE WRENN, THE ORIGIN OF THIS INQUIRY IS THE WHITE HOUSE RELEASING ITS OWN TRANSCRIPT OF THE PHONE CALL BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE EWE YAN YAN PRESIDENT ON JULY 25th AND TRUMP STILL SAYS THAT WAS A PERFECT PHONE CALL

THAT IS ANOTHER VERSION OF YEAH SO, WHAT, I DID IT DEFENSE >> INDEED AND JOSHUA, HERE'S HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN ADD DACH SCHIFF RESPONDING TO MULVANEY'S COMMENTS TODAY TAKE A LIST P >> MR

MULVANEY'S ACKNOWLEDGE MEANS THAT THINGS HAVE GONE FROM BAD TO MUCH WORSE >> DO YOU AGREE? >> BRIBERY INVOLVESES PROVING A QUID PRO QUO BRIBERY IS NAMED SPECIFICALLY IN THE CONSTITUTION AS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE YEAH

>> AND BILL, THERE WAS THIS STUNNING RESPONSE FROM MULVANEY AT THE PODIUM TODAY TAKE A LISTEN >> IS IS IT APPROPRIATE FOR ANY PRESIDENT OR THIS PRESIDENT TO PRESSURE A FOREIGN COUNTRY TO INVESTIGATE A POLITICAL OPPONENT? >> EVERY TIME I GET THAT QUESTION, IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS, IT IS, BUT SO THE, WHEN DID YOU STOP BEATING YOUR WIFE? IT ASSUMES THE PRESIDENT'S DONE THAT WE HAVEN'T DONE THAT >> BUT THEY HAVE

THEY HAVE DONE IT ACCORDING TO TESTIMONY TODAY FROM THEIR OWN PEOPLE, SONDLAND, AND ACCORDING TO THE TRANSCRIPT >> MULVANEY IS THE ACTING WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF HE'S A PARTICIPANT IN THIS WHY WAS THE MILITARY AID NOT DPLIFRED TO UKRAINE AFTER THE CONGRESS PROEP RATED IT, THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT WENT THROUGH ALL THE BUREAUCRATIC HURDLES YOU GO THROUGH SPECIFYING WHAT'S APPROPRIATE, WHAT'S NOT AND IT STOPPED

AND IT STOPPED FOR QUITE A WHILE LIKE A MONTH PLUS OR SOMETHING WITH NO EXPLANATION NO MEETINGS NO DOCUMENTATION

THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT IS IS SO ALARMED THEY HAVE THEIR OWN GENERAL COUNSEL WRITE A MEMO SAYING THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON HERE WE ARE LEGALLY OBLIGATED TO SAY IT'S TO BE STOPPED HOW DOES HE JUSTIFY NOT TESTIFYING TO CONGRESS? HE IS A CENTRAL PLAYER IN THE QUID PRO QUO ASPECT OF THIS SCANDAL >> DO YOU THINK WE'RE GOING TO SEE REPUBLICANS START TO COME OUT, OTHER THAN MITT ROMNEY, COME OUT U AND TALK ABOUT THIS, GIVEN HOW BRAZEN IT IS? >> GOOD QUESTION IT'S HARD TO SAY

OTHER THAN MITT ROMNEY AND YOU KNOW, REPUBLICANS ALREADY LEFT IF YOU'RE NAME IS JEFF FLAKE, IT'S EASY TO DO THIS RIGHT NOW I DON'T KNOW THERE'S A LOT GOING ON RIGHT NOW THERE'S AN ELECTION NEXT YEAR AND SO I'M GOING TO BE INTERESTED TO SEE POLITICALLY WHAT AMERICANS ARE FOCUSED ON BECAUSE WE'VE GOT THIS IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY

SYRIA TURKEY WHICH WE'RE GOING TO DISCUSS LATER ON WE'VE GOT A LOT OF PLATES TO SPIN WE CAN WALK AND CHEW GUM, BUT IF REPUBLICANS AREN'T CONVINCED THERE'S A LARGER ELECTORAL OR POLITICAL COST, I WONDER IF THEY'LL THINK IT'S WORTH IT OR IF THEY CAN STAY BELOW THE RADAR, KEEP QUIET FOR A WHITE AND WAIT FOR THIS TO BLOW E OVER THEN SAY YEAH, THAT'S HOW I FELT

>> THEY HAVE BEEN GOOD, GOOD I GUESS IF THAT'S THE RIGHT WORD OF STAYING BELOW THE RADAR SO R FAR, I DON'T WANT TO COMMENT ON IT MORE FOCUSED ON OTHER THINGS, THEY HAVE TO VOTE IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE >> AS LONG AS HE'S NOT RADIO ACTIVE, A LOT OF THEM MAY DECIDE TO JUST KEEP A LOW PROFILE AND SINK IN THE STORM BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY, THE SENATE MAY NOT DECIDE TO GO FORWARD >> JUST WONDERING IF THEY'RE GOING TO SAY ANYTHING OR GO VOTE AND WALK AWAY

>> THE CONSEQUENCES OF SAYING ANYTHING AS OPPOSED TO DOING SOMETHING ARE UNCLEAR AT THIS POINT NO ONE HAS PROVEN INSIDE THE PARTY AND I WOULD INCLUDE MITT ROMNEY IN THIS TO BE A VERY EFFECTIVE AT WAGING VERBAL ARGUMENTS WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP WHEN IT COMES TO HIS BEHAVIOR IN OFFICE MAYBE WE'RE PLAYING THE WRONG GAME OF GOTYOU THE RADICAL SHIFT IN POLL NUMBERS IN RECENT WEEKS SUGGESTS IT'S NOT AS OPEN AND SHUT, SIMPLE AS WE THINK THERE ARE MULTIPLE POLLS NOW THAT SHOW A MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT TRUMP SHOULDN'T JUST BE IMPEACHED, BUT REMOVED FROM OFFICE

THAT NEVER OCCURRED IN THE NIXON IMPEACHMENT UNTIL TWO WEEKS BEFORE HE WAS IN FACT FORCED TO STEP DOWN >> NIXON DIDN'T HAVE FOX NEWS STICK AROUND HE'S NANCY PELOSI'S MAN BEHIND THE SCENES PLUS, VICE PRESIDENT PENCE ANNOUNCING A PAUSE LET'S CALL IT, IN TURKEY'S ATTACKS WITH A DEAL THAT TO DETERMINE WHO THE NEXT CHAIRMAN WOULD BE

JAKE >> ALL RIGHT, LAUREN FOX, THANK YOU SO MUCH AND ON A PERSONAL NOTE, ELIJAH CUMMINGS' WIFE, MAYA, HAS BEEN A GUEST ON THE SHOW OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE GOING OUT TO THE CUMMINGS FAMILY TODAY >>> AS CLOSED DOOR MEETINGS CONTINUE ON CAPITOL HILL, SOME WONDER WHY DEMOCRATS ARE NOT YET HOLDING THEM PUBLICLY DEMOCRATS SAY THE REASON IS UNLIKE THE NIXON AND CLINTON IMPEACHMENTS, CONGRESS IN THIS INSTANCE HAS NOT BEEN ALREADY GIVEN A REPORT FROM A SPECIAL OUTSIDE COUNSEL

ON THIS SCANDAL UKRAINE SCANDAL THOSE OTHERS DID THEIR INVESTIGATIONS PRIVATELY IN PART SO WITNESSES COULD NOT CORROBORATE THEIR TESTIMONIES JESSICA SCHNEIDER TELLS US ABOUT THE LEGAL MIND DEMOCRATS ARE RELYING ON BEHIND THE SCENES

>> THE PRESIDENT IS IS OBSTRUCTING OBSTRUCTING CONGRESS FROM GETTING THE FACTS WE NEED >> HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI MIGHT BE FRONT AND AS THE PUBLIC FACE OF THE IMPEACHMENT FIGHT >> I'M DOUGLAS LETTER FROM THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE SXWL BUT IT'S THIS MAN, NANCY PELOSI'S HAND PICKED COUNCIL

DOUGLAS LETTER SPENT FOUR DECADES AT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT DEFENDING THE POLICIES OF REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC ADMINISTRATIONS HE DOESN'T SPEAK TO THE PRESS, BUT HIS WORDS IN COURT SAY PLENTY HE TOLD A FEDERAL JUDGE IN WASHINGTON, DC LAST WEEK THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY COULD BE EXTENSIVE, SAYING I CAN'T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH, IT'S NOT JUST UKRAINE AND IF IT'S CRIMINAL, BUT OOEMPB IF IT'S NOT, PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN BE IMPEACHED IF IT WAS HE WAS OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE

HE ALSO TOLD THE JUDGE THAT LYING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC COULD WARN IMPEACHMENT THE HE LEDS THE OFFICE THAT REPRESENTS THE HOUSE AND ITS COMMITTEES IN ALL LEGAL MATTERS AND CURRENTLY EMPLOYS JUST NINE ATTORNEYS >> HE IS STRETCHED VERY THIN BECAUSE IT'S A SMALL OFFICE AND THEY HAVE AN ENORMOUS DOCKET >> NATHAN KNOWS LETTER IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF MOUNTING FIGHTSES ON MULTIPLE FRONTS EVEN MORE SO THAN PREVIOUS GENERAL COUNSELS

>> THIS IS LIKE ON STEROIDS MUCH MORE SERIOUS AND MORE INTENSE AND MANY MORE FRONTS THAT HE HAS TO BATTLE >> INDEED, HE AND HIS TEAM HAVE A LOT TO HANDLE THEY'RE REPRESENTING THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE IN ITS LAWSUIT AGAINST DON McGAHN TO FORCE HIM TO TESTIFY THEY'RE PUSHING TO GET THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT TO RELEASE THE GRAND JURY TERRIBLE FROM RORY McILROY'S PROBE AND THEY'RE REPRESENTING DEMOCRATS TO GET TAX RURPS AND FINANCIAL RECORDS FROM THE PRESIDENT

>> I THINK IT'S A UNPRECEDENTED AMOUNT AND SCOPE OF LITIGATION WE'RE SEEING IT'S THREE DIMENSIONAL GAME OF CHESS >> LETTER HAS ONLY BEEN IN HIS ROLE SINCE JANUARY, BUT NOW TEN MONTHS LATER, HIS END OFFICE IS AT THE EPICENTER OF A HYPER PARTISAN POWER STRUGGLE >> WHAT WE SEE IN THIS IMPEACHMENT IS A KANGAROO COURT

>> BETWEEN REPUBLICANS AND THE PRESIDENT AND HOUSE DEMOCRATS >> THE JOB IS A NONPARTISAN JOB HE HAS TO IGNORE THOSE CAT CALLS FROM THE SIDELINES THEY'RE PROPOSTROUSE, NOT JUSTIFIED >> AND HERB NATHAN KNOWS ALL OF THE CURRENT LITIGATION SPEARHEADED BY THE GENERAL COUNSEL

IT'S NOT ACTUALLY DIRECTLY TIED TO THE INQUIRY ON UKRAINE AND IT'S UNLIKELY THAT ANY OF THE FIGHTS OVER DOCUMENTS AND SUBPOENAS WILL ULTIMATELY END UP IN COURT SINCE LITIGATION TAKES SO LONG AND THIS IS A FAST TRACK TIMELINE ONE OTHER THING TO NOTE THAT WHILE THE SWREN COUNSEL IS LEADING THIS FIGHT IN THE COURT ON MULTIPLE FRONTS, HE'S ALSO ADVISING THE COMMITTEES HERE ON THE INQUIRIES, SO HE HAS A WIDE RANGE OF RESPONSIBILITIES HERE! INTERESTING THANKS SO MUCH COMING UP, CLEANING UP HIS OWN MESS BY ONCE AGAIN GIVING TURKEY EXACTLY WHAT TURKEY WANTS THE DEAL ONE REPUBLICAN SAYS IS QUOTE FAR FROM A VICTORY

THAT STORY NEX >>> BREAKING NEWS PRESIDENT TRUMP THIS AFTERNOON ACTED AS THOUGH HE SERVED TO TAKE A VICTORY LAP FOR REACHING A TENTATIVE, FRAGILE CEASE FIRE HALTING CARNAGE HE HELPED CREATE VICE PRESIDENT PENCE TODAY ANNOUNCED THAT TURKEY WILL PAUSE ITS BLOODY CAMPAIGN IN NORTHERN SYRIA THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION SAYS THE 120 HOUR LONG CEASE FIRE WILL ALLOW THE US

TO SAFELY REMOVE ITS KURDISH ALLIES FROM NORTHERN SYRIA, BUT TURKEY CLAIMS THOSE ALLIES ARE ACTUALLY TERRORISTS AND THIS IS JUST A TEMPORARY PAUSE UNTIL THEY GET WHAT THEY WANT BORIS SANCHEZ REPORTS AT LEAST ONE HIGH PROFILE REPUBLICAN IS ALREADY SLAMMING PRESIDENT TRUMP'S LATEST ACTIONS >> ON HIS WAY TO A RALLY IN DALLAS THIS AFTERNOON, PRESIDENT TRUMP TOUTING A NEWLY BROKERED DEAL WITH TURKEY TO STOP ITS DEADLY INCURSION INTO NORTHERN SYRIA >> THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE OUTCOME >> WHICH START ED AFTER THE PRESIDENT DECIDED TO PULL U

S TROOPS OUT OF AN AREA CONTROLLED BY THE CUKURDS, A LONG TIME ALL IN THE FIGHT AGAINST ISIS FOLLOWING A LONG MEETING WITH ERDOGAN, MIKE PENCE AND MIKE POMPEO SPINNING WHAT CRITICS HAVE CALL ED A SELF-INFLICTED CRISIS >> PRESIDENT TRUMP SENT US HERE TO END THE VIOLENCE AND ACHIEVE AN IMMEDIATE CEASE FIRE

AND THANKS TO THE AGREEMENT THAT WE NEGOTIATED TODAY AND THE STRONG STAND THE PRESIDENT TOOK, IN THE PROCEEDING DAYS, WEAVE ACHIEVED THAT TODAY'S CEASE FIRE IS A CREDIT TO PRESIDENT TRUMP AND ERDOGAN >> THAT'S NOW HOW TURKEY SEES IT THE FOREIGN MINISTER ALMOST IMMEDIATELY CONTRADICTING PENCE AND TRUMP, SAYING THE AGREEMENT ISN'T A CEASE FIRE >> Reporter: THEY'LL PAUSE THE OPERATION FOR 120 HOURS IN ORDER FOR THE TERRORISTS TO LEAVE

ONLY IF OUR CONDITIONS ARE MET >> UNDER THE AGREEMENT, KURDISH FIGHTERS WILL HAVE FIVE DAYS TO LEAVE THE STAFF SAFE ZONE ALONG THE BORDER, A WITHDRAWAL ALREADY UNDERWAY ACCORDING TO PENCE IN CHANGE, THE WHITE HOUSE WILL DROP ECONOMIC SANCTIONS ON TURKISH OFFICIALS BOTH ITEMS WHAT TURKEY WANTED WHILE KURDISH FORCES HAVEN'T YET RESPONDED, TRUMP ALLEGES — >> AS A GROUP, I WANT TO THANK THE KURDS BECAUSE THEY WERE INCREDIBLY HAPPY WITH THIS SOLUTION

>> AND TODAY'S PACT, WHICH TRUMP CLAIMED — >> THIS OUTCOME IS SOMETHING WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET FOR TEN YEARS >> IS EXTREMELY SIMILAR TO A PREVIOUS SECURITY MECHANISM AGREEMENT THE US REACHED WITH TURKEY EARLIER THIS YEAR WHILE THE KURDS KEPT THEIR SIDE OF THE BARGAIN, TURKEY DID NOT

THE IMMEDIATE REACTION FROM ONE OF THE REPUBLICANS WHO OPPOSED TRUMP'S DECISION — >> THE ANNOUNCEMENT IS BEING PORTRAYED AS A VICTORY IT IS FAR FROM A VICTORY >> SENATOR MITT ROMNEY, THE FIRST REPUBLICAN TO COME OUT AND CONDEMN THIS KDEAL, JAKE, ADDIN THAT WHAT THE UNITED STATES HAS DONE TO THE KURDS WILL LEAVE A BLOODSTAIN ON US HISTORY

JAKE >> ALL RIGHT THANK YOU SO MUCH LET'S CHAT OVER ALL THIS SUSAN, HERE'S SOMETHING ELSE MITT ROMNEY SAID MINUTES AGO ON THE SENATE FLOOR

>> ARE WE SO WEAK AND INEPT DIPLOMATICALLY THAT TURKEY FORCED THE HAND OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA? TURKEY? >> IS THAT WHAT HAPPENED? DID TURKEY FORCE THE HAND OF THE UNITED STATES? I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY PRESIDENT TRUMP DID WHAT HE DID >> WELL, YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY PRESIDENT TRUMP DID WHAT HE DID IN THE FIRST PLACE THIS IS A CRISIS OF TRUMP'S OWN MAKING FIRST OF ALL, YOU GOT TO SAY IT'S REMARKABLE TO SEE MITT ROMNEY OUT THERE AS THE LONE VOICE OF CONSCIOUS IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THESE DAYS AS THE JOHN McCAIN OF ROMNEY IS MERELY COMPLETE EXCEPT THAT AS WE TALKED ABOUT BEFORE, HE DOESN'T SEEM TO HAVE OTHER REPUBLICANS FOLLOWING ALONG IN THE WAY THAT McCAIN DID AT LEAST SOME OF THE TIME A REMARKABLE MOMENT

TURKEY IS A THINKS OF F THE PKK TERRORIST GROUP >> THE US DOES, TOO, BUT NOBODY WOULD SAY THEY'RE MORE DANGEROUS THAN ISIS >> RIGHT AND WE'VE MADE A DIF RENTUATION BETWEEN THE KURDS WHO WERE DOING WHAT THEY'RE DOING IN TURKEY THEN THOSE IN SYRIA HELPING US FIGHT TERROR

WE SHOULD BE CLEAR THAT AS PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS SPEAKING IN FORT WORTH BEFORE HIS EVENT TONIGHT, TURKEY'S PRIME MINISTER WAS ALSO SPEAKING AND HE SAID A CEASE FIRE TAKES PLACE BETWEEN TWO LEGITIMATE SIDES HE SAID QUOTE, YOU DON'T NEED A TERROR GROUP TO FIGHT ANOTHER TERROR GROUP SO THE OPINION OF THE TURKISH GOVERNMENT HASN'T CHANGED AND THE FACT ALSO THAT THE SDF GENERAL IN CHARGE, THE PRESIDENT IN HIS LETTER TO PRESIDENT ERDOGAN SAID LET ME SEND YOU THIS CONFIDENTIAL LETTER THEY'RE READY TO MAKE A DEAL THAT MEANS ONE OF F OUR ALLIES HAS HAD ONE OF THEIR CORRESPONDENTS SENT FROM THE PRESIDENT FROM TURKEY >> THIS HAS BEEN THE FASCINATING THING ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP'S RELATIONSHIP WITH ERDOGAN

HE LEGITIMATELY THINKS HE HAS A RAPPORT WITH HIM BEFORE I COVERED THE WHITE HOUSE, I WAS THE REMARK BUREAU CHIEF THE NUMBER OF TIMES TURKEY HAS TRY TODAY ATTACK THE KURDS IS COUNTLESS ANYONE WHO WATCHES THE REGION KNOWS THEY WERE TRYING TO DO THIS A NUMBER OF OFFICIALS THOUGHT TURKEY WAS BLUFFING, THEY WOULDN'T DO IT, THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD INFLUENCE OVER HIS ZISS

THEY WERE GOING TO DO IT THE SECOND THEY HAD AN OPENING AND THEY SAW IT TWO WEEKS AGO STILL THE PRESIDENT CONTINUES TO ENTERTAIN ERDOGAN AND SAY WELL HE WANTS TO MAKE A DEAL HE KNOWS IT'S GOOD FOR HIS COUNTRY, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, HE REFRAINS FROM CRITICIZING ERDOGAN FOR THE ATROCITIES THAT HAVE HAPPENED WE HAVE HEARD HIM CRITICIZE LEAD ERS IN THE UK

WITH HARSHER LANGUAGE THAN HE HAS CRITICIZED ERDOGAN >> EXACTLY >> EXACTLY >> WHAT IS THE ACTUAL ONE CONCRETE RESULT SO FAR AS WE CAN TELL OF PENCE AND POMPEO'S VISIT TO TURKEY TODAY? NO SANCTIONS >> EVEN THE MOST TRUMP SUPPORTIVE SENATORS ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE SAID YEAH, WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS

NOW THE ADMINISTRATION IS IS TAKING OFF THE VERY MILD SANCTIONS THEY PUT ON AND THEY'RE NOT SUPPORTING SUBSTANTIATIONS ON THSANCTIONS E HILL FOR NOTHING IT'S MORE OF AN ACCOMMODATION THAN ONE THOUGHT WAS POSSIBLE >> DOES THE SO-CALLED CEASE FIRE IN SYRIA SHIFT THE BALANCE OF POWER AGAIN IN THE MIDDLE EAST TOWARDS THE RUSSIANS? WE ASKED A MAN WHO OVERSAW THE OSAMA BIN LADEN RAID HE'S OUT WITH A NEW OP-ED IN "THE NEW YORK TIMES" THAT'S NEXT

THIS COMES AS RUSSIA AND IRAN AND ASSAD IN SYRIA ARE ALL PUSHING TO FILL THE POWER VACUUM AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP ABRUPTLY ORDERED ALL US FORCES OUT OF THE AREA SURROUNDERING IN PARTS OF THE MIDDLE EAST JOINING ME NOW IS WILLIAM McCRAVEN HE SERVED AS HEAD OF THE U

S SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND AND OVERSAW THE BIN LADEN RAID AND RELEASED A SCATHING OP-ED ENTITLED OUR REPUBLIC IS UNDER ATTACK FROM THE PRESIDENT THANKS SO MUCH FOR JOINING US LET ME FIRST OF ALL AS YOU, OUR REPUBLIC IS UNDER ATTACK FROM THE PRESIDENT HOW? >> WELL, TWO POINTS IN THE O OP-ED FIRST WAS THAT IF THE STORY IN ANY ORGANIZATION, YOU DESTROY IT FROM WITHIN AND WITHOUT AND CONVINCE EVERYBODY YOU'RE DOING THE RIGHT THICK

THE PRESIDENT HAS UNDERMINE D TE LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY, THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, THE STATE DEPARTMENT HE HAS CALLED THE PRESS THE ENEMY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND I WILL TELL YOU, I'VE FOUGHT A LOT OF AMERICA 'S ENEMIES THE PRESS IS NOT THE ENEMY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THEN YOU TAKE A LOOK AT UNDERMINING US FROM WITHOUT HE'S LEFT THE KURDS ON THE BATTLEFIELD

WE FEEL LIKE WE'VE BETRAYED THEM HE'S UNDERMINED OUR NATO ALLIES AND REALLY THE INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE HAS LOST FAITH IN AMERICA THEN THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF THIS, HE'S CONVINCED US HE'S DOING IT FOR THE RIGHT REASONS I THINK THAT'S REALLY WHAT IS TROUBLING, BUT IF I CAN, THE OTHER PART OF THE OP-ED THAT I THINK IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT IS THAT I THINK FORGETS THAT WE ARE A NATION OF VALUE THAT WE ARE NOT JUST TRANSACTIONAL HE'S A TRANSACTIONAL PRESIDENT

HE BELIEVES THAT IT'S ONLY GOOD IF IT IS GOOD FOR US BUT HE FORGETS WE'RE THE SAME NATION THAT FOUGHT NAZISM AND FASCISM AND TERRORISM AND NOT JUST BECAUSE IT WAS GOOD FOR US, BUT BECAUSE THE IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO AND THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY, THOSE PEOPLE, THOSE AMERICANS, BELIEVE THESE VALUES ARE IMPORTANT I DON'T BELIEVE THE PRESIDENT FULLY UNDERSTANDS THAT >> AND YOU WRITE, QUOTE, IF YOUR PROMISES ARE MEANINGLESS, HOW WILL OUR ALLIES EVER TRUST US? IF WE CAN'T HAVE FAITH IN OUR NATION'S PRINCIPLES, WHY WOULD MEN AND WOMEN JOIN THE MILITARY IF WE ARE NOT THE CHAMPIONS OF QUOOD AND RIGHT, WHO WILL FOLLOW US AND IF NO ONE FOLLOWS, WHERE WILL THE WORLD END UP

YOU REALLY SEE IT AS THE UNITED STATES IS BASICALLY UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP IN YOUR VIEW, AMORAL NOT NECESSARILY IMMORAL, BUT AMORAL, AND THAT COULD REALLY HAVE A DEVASTATING EFFECT ON THE WORLD >> AS I'VE SAID A NUMBER OF TIMES BEFORE, I'VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE AND HONOR OF WORKING FOR A LOT OF PRESIDENTS AND I DIDN'T ALWAYS AGREE WITH THEM BUT I BELIEVED THEY WERE MEN OF PRINCIPLE THEY WERE TRYING TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT BY THE COUNTRY

DIDN'T ALWAYS GET I RIGHT, BUT TRYING TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT I DON'T SEE THAT IN THIS PRESIDENT MY POINT, I WILL NEVER SPEAK FOR ANYBODY IN THE MILITARY THAT'S NOT MY INTENT I WILL TELL YOU THAT I KNOW WHAT MOTIVATED ME AND I CAN OFFER WHAT MOTIVATED A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT WORKED FOR ME IS THE FACT WE THOUGHT WE WERE DOING THE RIGHT THING

WE BELIEVED IN THESE VALUES THE CONSTITUTION WE BELIEVED WE WERE A NATION OF LAWS THE FIRST AMENDMENT WE BELIEVED IN UNIVERSAL RIGHTS

WE BELIEVED THAT WE WERE THE GOOD GUYS AND IF WE'RE NO LONGER THE GOOD GUYS, IT'S GOING TO BE VERY DIFFICULT TO INSPIRE PEOPLE TO JOIN THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE, THE MILITARY, ANY PART OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WHERE THOSE VALUES ARE SO KRIT TO DOING YOUR JOB AND TO SACRIFICING FOR THIS COUNTRY >> YESTERDAY, PRESIDENT TRUMP DESCRIBED THE KURDS AS PEOPLE WHO WERE NOT ANGELS LISTEN TO PRESIDENT TRUMP THIS AFTERNOON >> I WANT TO THANK THE KURDS BECAUSE THEY WERE INCREDIBLY HAPPY WITH THIS SOLUTION IT'S A SOLUTION THAT SAVED THEIR LIVES FRANKLY

IF WE DIDN'T DO THIS UNCONVENTIONAL TOUGH LOVE APPROACH, YOU COULD HAVE NEVER GOTTEN IT DONE >> BASED ON WHAT THE KURDS HAVE SAID PUBLICLY, IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE THEY'RE INCREDIBLY HAPPY >> MY GUESS IS THAT THAER NOT HAPPY, JAKE AND WHILE I'M GLAD WE HAVE THE CEASE FIRE, THIS DOES NOT AB SOLVE THE PRESIDENT FROM THE SKIGS HE MADE TO BEGIN WITH AND IF PART OF HIS STRATEGY WAS TO ALLOW THE TURKS TO GO TO WAR WITH THE KURDS SO THEY COULD DISPLACE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, THAT WAS NOT A GOOD STRATEGY AND I DON'T THINK ANYBODY BELIEVES THAT >> ADMIRAL, THANK YOU SO MUCH WE APPRECIATE YOUR TIME AND THANK YOU AS ALWAYS FOR YOUR SERVICE TO THIS COUNTRY

>> THANKS, JAKE >>> SENATOR WARREN >>> OUR 2020 LEAD TODAY ON THE HEELS OF THIS WEEK'S DEBATE, ELIZABETH WARREN IS ACKNOWLEDGING AS OF RIGHT NOW, SHE IS NOT BEING CLEAR ON HOW SHE WILL PAY FOR MEDICARE FOR ALL HER CAMPAIGN SAYS THEY ARE REVIEWING REVENUE OPTIONS THIS AFTER HER DEMOCRATIC RIVALS CALLED HER OUT FOR FAILING TO EXPLAIN HOW SHE WOULD PAY FOR THE SYSTEM BOUND TO HAVE A HEAVY PRICE TAG >> AT LEAST BERNIE'S BEING HONEST HERE AND SAYING HOW HE'S GOING TO PAY FOR THIS AND THAT TAXES ARE GOING TO GO UP AND I'M SORRY ELIZABETH, BUT U YOU HAVE NOT SAID THAT

AS MJ REPORTS, THE ATTACKS FROM DEMOCRATS HAVE NOT STOPPED >> I'M WITH BERNIE ON MEDICARE FOR ALL >> ELIZABETH WARREN SAYS HER HEALTH CARE PLAN IS BERNIE SANDERS' PLAN MEDICARE FOR ALL, BUT UNLIKE SANDERS, WARREN HASN'T SAID IF TAXES WOULD GO UP UNDER THAT PROPOSAL HER CAMPAIGN INSISTING THAT WARREN IS STILL FIGURING OUT SOME KEY DETAILS INCLUDING HOW TO PAY FOR THE SWEEPING ING PLA

THE CAMPAIGN TELLING CNN SHE'S REVIEWING THE REVENUE OPTIONS SUGGESTED BY THE 2016 BERNIE CAMPAIGN ALONG WITH OTHER REVENUE OPTION, BUT WILL ONLY SUPPORT PAY FORS THAT MEET THE PRINCIPLES SHE LAID OUT IN MULTIPLE DEBATES ON THE TRAIL, SHE HAS SAID MEDICARE FOR ALL IS A WORK IN PROGRESS >> RIGHT NOW, WHAT WE'VE GOT IN MEDICARE FOR ALL IS A FRAMEWORK COSTS WILL GO DOWN FOR HARD WORKING MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES >> AS THE CNN "NEW YORK TIMES" DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE TUESDAY, WARREN TAKING HEAT FROM HER RIVALS AS SHE REPEATEDLY REFUSED TO SAY WHETHER TAXES WOULD GO UP

>> WILL YOU RAISE TAXES ON THE MIDDLE CLASS TO PAY FOR IT, YES OR NO? >> SO, I HAVE MADE CLEAR WHAT MY PRINCIPLES ARE HERE AND THAT IS COSTS WILL GO UP FOR THE WEALTHY AND FOR BIG CORPORATIONS AND FOR HARD WORKING MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES, COSTS WILL GO DOWN >> WE HEARD IT TONIGHT A YES OR NO QUESTION THAT DIDN'T GET A E YES OR NO ANSWER

>> THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PLAN AND PIPE DREAM IS SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY GET DONE >> SANDERS DEFENDING HIS SIGNATURE PLAN AND ACKNOWLEDGING SOME TAXES WILL GO UP >> BUT I DO THINK IT IS APPROPRIATE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT TAXES WILL GO UP THEY'RE GOING TO GO UP SIGNIFICANTLY FOR THE WEALTHY AND FOR VIRTUALLY EVERYBODY THE TAX INCREASE THEY PAY WILL BE SUBSTANTIALLY LESS

SUBSTANTIALLY LESS THAN WHAT THEY WERE PAYING FOR PREMIUMS AND OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES >> AFTER THE DEBATE, JOE BIDEN OOEN QUESTIONING WARREN'S CREDIBILITY >> SHE'S GOING TO HAVE TO TELL THE TRUTH OR THE QUESTION WE RAISED ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT SHE'S GOING TO BE CANDID AND HONEST WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE >> NOW THE WARREN CAMPAIGN SAYS THAT IT STILL DOESN'T KNOW EXACTLY HOW MUCH MEDICIARE FOR ALL WILL COST AND THE CAMPAIGN IS ALSO NOT COMMENTING ON WHETHER SENATOR WARREN COULD ULTIMATELY PUT OUT HER OWN PROPOSAL ON HOW TO PAY FOR THE PLAN JAKE

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH AS PRESIDENT TRUMP CLAIMS TO CARE ABOUT CORRUPTION IN UKRAINE AND PUERTO RICO, THE WHITE HOUSE IS ANNOUNCING A MAJOR WORLD SUMMIT WILL TAKE PLACE AT A
