7:07 am
day is this rough transcript of the phone call in which the president says to ukraine, i want you to do me a favor and talks about investigating the bidens. the president has said repeatedly that is perfect call. is there anything wrong with that call, these facts that the president has acknowledged? >> well, imagine savannah, if a president of the united states said to china, hey, you can invade your neighbors or said to north korea, you can build nuclear weapons if you do me a favor, though, in effect, it's putting american foreign policy, american power, american support on sale for a very low low price, and there are the lot of countries, a lot of dangerous countries in the world that will take advantage of that and could potentially hurt american national security. >> and finally, we heard some of the president's allies in congress saying, look, when the president went out on camera and said that china should investigate the bidens, he was
7:08 am
just kidding. people can look at the tape and determine whether or not he was kidding or not. let's say for the sake of argument that he was, you used to work at the cia, how do you think china would receive those comments? >> first, he wasn't kidding, he was serious. second, even if he was joking around, china would interpret this as a very serious invitation. they saw what happened in 2016, russia clearly interfered and they were rewarded. >> all right. jeremy bash, thank you so much. also breaking out of washington overnight, the white house announcing a major shift in u.s. policy pulling forces out of northern syria. today's senior international correspondent keir simmons has the latest on this breaking news. good morning, what can you tell us. >> hey, savannah, good morning, this announcement comes after a phone call between president trump and th trump and the president of turkey u.s. forces will withdraw and turkish forces will move into northern syria u.s. forces were there to help fight isis with a key ally, kurds, the kurds warning of a genocide, thu.s. withdrawal is

7:41 am
hollywood. chiu says she was pressured into signing a nondisclosure agreement and accepted a settlement of $200,000. she struggled to find work following the incident, blamed herself for what happened. and even attempted suicide twice in the years that followed. i lived in constant fear of harvey's abuse, control and power, that the story would come back to haunt me. i suffered completely isolated from those around me who could have provided the support i needed, a loved one, trusted pastor, a respected therapist, even the man i married. the attorney for wean harvey weinstein says that there are t sides to every story. >> offered to keep a secret

prince harry said i have been a silent witness to her private suffering for too long. to stand back and do nothing would be contrary to everything we believe in. for harry and meghan to see comments from her dad in the same newspaper they are suing for breach of privacy, they allege, but i think these phone hacking claims by prince harry the most likely to cause headlines. remember, it was a brutal battle in which a british newspaper was closed. journalists went to jail and on the other side, i think prince harry can't possibly know where this all ends. guys. >> keir simmons, thank you. we turn to al. get another check of the weather. what's shaking eggs and bacon. >> on the upside, she has amazing handwriting. >> she does. >> let's show you what we have going on right now, a big vigorous front stretching from new england all the way down into texas. heavy showers and thunderstorms in the lower mississippi river valley. temperatures toasty through the

8:22 am
all women. >> the girl power was in full effect, it's all part of delta's annual wing flight, introducing the next generation of girls to careers in the traditionally male dominated field of aviation. >> we thought what better way than to put them on an airplane, take them somewhere and introduce them to the world itself. >> reporter: some girls had never been on a plane before. >> who's nervous >> me. >> both of you are a little nervous? >> oh, my god, i'm going. >> reporter: and others were already pilots in the making. >> you just got your driver's license not that long ago, and you're already flying planes. >> i flew a plane before i got my license. >> reporter: but every one of them was excited to meet women already living their career dreams. >> i met some women that have already flew and realized it was a possibility, something i could do too. >> there's an expression, if you see it, you can see it >> i don't think enough of them get to see it, therefore do it
8:23 am
and i think that's why we're doing this today. >> reporter: as we prepared for takeoff, i got in on some of the fun. i'm so excited to be sharing this journey with you. today, you are all first class fliers, and i have one question before we take off today, who runs the world girls. and with that, we were off, our destination, houston these young women would get a chance to tour nasa and learn about a different type of flight mission control, here we come. first we flew the skies, now it was time to shoot for the stars. we got a peek inside mission control to see where all the action happens >> even though you have tried to think of everything, something else still goes wrong and that's the fun part of the job, you and your team get together, and figure out what to do. houston, we have a problem, we need more girls. who better to show them the way than one of the coolest girls in

8:25 am
was that like today? >> that is the most rewarding part you see that glimmer in their eyes, and they know there's a possibility they could be doing this, and it's something they probably have never thought of in many cases. >> reporter: by the end of the day, it was clear, the future of aviation is bright and more female >> well, there are less than 6% of female pilots in the country. but so far, over 600 girls have taken part in delta's wing flight, so their generation may very well be the one to change that statistic, guys it was such a fun weekend, and such a great adventure, and i think so eye opening for all of those girls to have that opportunity. >> oh, yeah, to get up close and personal with their dreams >> definitely. >> thank you, natalie. >> you got it. just ahead this morning, we cannot wait to introduce you to this young woman, cleo wade, an inspiring young writer, some people call her the millennial oprah. and korean comfort food with chef judy joo, first, your local news

welcome back, the disclosure of a second whistleblower with firsthand knowledge of president trump's phone call with the leader of ukraine has led to new accusations by the president that the so called deep state is seeking to undermine his presidency, a charge he has levelled against the intelligence community and the fbi since he first took office and one that james b. stewart investigated for his new book "deep state, trump, the fbi and the rule of law. >> good morning. >> it's interesting you tackle this issue, deep state wasn't in our political lexicon, his allegation is there are people inside these government agencies actively working against him what did you find?
8:44 am
>> you meet these characters in my book, and the fact is in a sense, he's right, there is a deep state, there is a bureaucracy in our country, pledged to respect the constitution, respect the rule of law, they do not work for the president, they work for the american people, and as comey told me in my book, thank goodness for that because they are protecting the constitution and the people when individuals, we don't have a monarch, we don't have a dictator, they restrain them from crossing the boundaries of law. >> the deep state is a pejorative term, they don't mean that as a compliment. >> it's pejorative of how they were treated in turkey, and egypt, protecting their own power. what trump calls the deep state in the united states is protecting the american people and protecting the constitution. it's a positive thing in this sense. >> you know what's interesting, you have been around politics a long time. it always was assumed fairly or unfairly that republicans were

the party of law enforcement and just yesterday on "meet the press"ou had senator ron johnson a republican saying he doesn't really trust the fbi, he doesn't trust the cia, he named in particular, individuals, mccabe, comey, those folks, but what do you think about this larger development that there's questioning of these very institutions, what does that mean >> it's historically unprecedented and it's very dangerous. the reason they're being attacked is the justice department and the fbi are independent. for good reasons they may be called upon to investigator as they did, the white house. they do not answer to the president even though he appoints them. and for them to be branded as trump has as traitors, to alienate them as struck terror into many of these people. many of the people i talked to, they're terrified, they have been branded as traitors, the penalty for traitors is the death penalty. >> what is the mood inside the intelligence agencies, the fbi, now that there are whole groups of people who look at them as scams and say wait a minute, whose side are you on here >> moral has been devastated
8:46 am
i have never seen anything like it i have been inside there these are people who don't make a whole lot of money but dedicated themselves to public service, and they were treated like local heroes, now there's a huge faction of the population thinks they are the enemy of the people, they're traitors, that they're doing something sinister, that is unfair, untrue, and has had a terrible toll on people there what you're getting frankly is people who are willing to be lackeys of the elected officials. >> how does this get resolved, does it bounce back after a period of years, or is the damage lasting. >> there's a lot of damage, it's going to be lasting for many years. i hope it's something the american people will take into consideration, who's going to be able to restore the integrity of
