Our peter alexander has details tonight, house democrats mapping out their case for impeachment in a 300-page report, accusing president trump of abusing his power by pressuring ukraine to help benefit his reelection and that obstructing congress's efforts to investigate the evidence of the president's misconduct is overwhelming. The report reads, and so too is the evidence of his obstruction of congress. First of all, this is not about ukraine. This is about our democracy and, if wedon't care about this, we can well be assured. The president will be back at it doing this all over again democrats arguing by pushing for investigations into the biden's and the 2016 election, while military aid was being withheld. The president placed his own personal and political interests above the national interests and in the process endangered us national security highlighting president trump's recent public calls for ukraine and china to investigate by the report warns that continued solicitation of foreign interference in a u. s. election presents a Clear and present danger the report names more than 500 times, rudy giuliani, the president's personal lawyer who witnesses say mr. trump directed to be his point. Person on ukraine andreveals new phone records obtained by the democrats, showing a flurry of calls between giuliani, the white house and others, including devon nunez, the top republican on the intelligence committee, who clashed with democrats throughout last month's keyrings. Also, in those calls a mysterious contact referred to only as one certainly, the phone records show that there was considerable coordination among the parties, including the white house.

Today'S report also spreads a wide net describing what it calls a month-long campaign driven by president trump identifying some of the most senior administration officials, including the vice president and secretary of state of being either knowledgeable of or active participants. In an effort to extract from a foreign nation, the personalpolitical benefits sought by the president, the white house tonight attacking the report as the ramblings of a basement blogger, straining to prove something when there was evidence of nothing. President trump in london today for the nato summit blasting the impeachment investigation, saying he did nothing wrong and peter the house intelligence committee, i know, is voting on that report tonight. So what happens next in all this yeah lester tonight? That report is being delivered to the house judiciary committee, the committee that would draft articles of impeachment.

We'Ll have specialcoverage of the impeachment hearing tomorrow morning, starting at 10:00 a. m. eastern time, and while the impeachment battle grinds on to its next phase, the president was battling on a different front today in london in a remarkable confrontation with another world leader, kristen welker is there Tonight tonight, president trump trying to project business as usual on the world stage, while democrats focus on impeachment back at home, the president marking the 70th anniversary of nato attending an event hosted by the queen. The pomp and pageantry capping a tense first day at the summit. With the president, picking a fight with french president emmanuel macron, the discord on display when the president suggested european countries should do abetter job of taking back captured isis fighters, many which he argued come from france.

You, like some nice isis fighters confronting the president with the cameras rolling a rare move for another world leader. The back-and-forth started earlier in the day when the president slammed mccrone for saying nato is currently experiencing brain death. A criticism in part after president trump pulled troops out of syria. I think it's resulting to a lot of different forces. You just can't go around making statements like that about nato. It'S a remarkable shift in tone for the president after he has frequently criticized the nato alliance. I'M gon na tell nato you got to start paying your bills, whether schmucks at apayment for the whole thing, and tonight the president is trying to distance himself from the scandal.

Quits here is andrea mitchell. She launched her campaign with more than 20,000 supporters in oakland, a rising democratic star, kamala harris the telegenic, california senator and former state attorney general rocketing to the top tier of a crowded field.

By taking on joe biden in the first debate, there was a little girl in california who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day and that little girl was me. Do you feel that you've top of the frontrunner - i don't knowi'll, leave that to the pundits, but, a month later, stumbling over the cost of her health care plan? You can't be president trump with double-talk on this plan by mid-october. She was behind in the money race and failing to connect to african americans polling only 5 % with black voters recently compared to 43 % for biden by the last debate vying for attention. I have more people supporting me in the black community. The only black american woman had never been elected to the united states senate tonight. Praise from the other democrats. She is a first-rate intellect a first-grade candidate and it's a real competitor. Sometimes, campaigns have a way of tearing people apart or breaking down. Friendshipsfor us, it's brought us closer. Andrea joins us now, andrea, it's worth noting that harris dropped out today, but not before issuing a parting shot about who's left. Indeed, she said in the end. She could not compete with two billionaires last year, two billionaires now in the race tom steyer and mike bloomberg.

They have unlimited campaign money, andrea mitchell.

It'S a call, you don't want to get, i mean, hopefully you know no one. No one has to die from this andthe officer recovers. I think that when he did is very heroic, 980 minutes away. Authorities in waukesha said a 17 year old student shot by sergeant brady sr there on monday was angry and pointed a pellet gun at a classmates head officers rendered aid to the suspect who officials say is in stable condition.
