12:01 pm
expected to hear from president trump in just a few minutes but this comes after bombshell testimony on capitol hill from a key witness and the impeachment investigation. the former ambassador to ukrai ukraine, marie young evanovich, telling house lawmakers that the deputy secretary of state told her president trump personally pressure of the state department to remove her, even though she has done nothing wrong, she blames what she calls unfounded and false claims by people who clearly have questionable motives. that is all according to her opening statement today. the trump administration removed the then ambassador who is a respected career diplomat at the same time rudy giuliani trying to get ukraine to investigate joe biden. president trump called the ambassador "bad news" in july phone call with ukrainian president during which he asked the foreign leader to
12:02 pm
investigate his political rival. the rudy giuliani, soviet born, conspired to remove the ambassador from the post by funneling foreign money to a u.s. congressman to buy his influence. the former ambassador's interview is still going on behind closed doors right now. we weren't sure whether the ambassador would show up today after the state department announced it would block employees from testifying in the impeachment and query. another key witness is the ambassador to the european union. he says he will defy the trump administration's orders and testify himself next week after house democrats issued a subpoena. gordon's son could be critical to determine whether president trump withheld military aid to ukraine in order to pressure that country to launch an investigation into his rival joe biden. the president said there was no
12:03 pm
pressure and he was just concerned about corruption. fox news has now confirmed the whistle-blower who originally sounded the alarm about president trump and ukraine is asking to testify in writing rather than to appear in person to protect the whistle-blower's identity. now team fox coverage john roberts live at the white house but first mike emanuel from the white house hill. >> in the opening statement by fox news, marie yovanovitch telling the committee about her conversation with deputy secretary of state john sullivan. she says "he said that the president has a lot of confidence in me and no longer wanted my services as an ambassador. an assorted campaign against me and the department has been under pressure from the president to remove me since the summer 2018." the leading house intelligence was hoping to learn from ambassador marie yovanovitch. >> we will want to get her on
12:04 pm
the record, did she support the trump administration? did she really say these negative things about the trump administration? was she looking at journalists? was she monitoring journalist in the united states? these are all questions that we want the answers to. >> earlier from a democrat gave marie yovanovitch high marks so far. >> she is acting kind of like a true ambassador, she, herself has been deeply involved in has been the object of wrong, false statements. and she is clearing that up. >> the trans transcribed interview has been going on for about five hours. >> shepard: might come at the trump administration apparently tried to stop this testimony from happening, right? >> that is right. we got the statement from three committee chairs, adam schiff, the state department told her not to show up today so at that
12:05 pm
point, they had to take further action list take a look at it, the intelligence committee issuing a subpoena to tell marie yovanovitch to comply so the ambassador is cooperating with the subpoena in answering questions for democrats and republicans and staff. the chair fired a warning shot saying any efforts by trump administration officials to prevent witness cooperation with the committee will be deemed obstruction of a coequal branch of government and adverse imprints may be drawn against the president. on the underlying allegations of corruption and cover-up, but a house intelligence republican said the democrats should make this whole impeachment inquiry official. >> if it was urgent committee really meant it, why wouldn't you have a vote? why wouldn't you have a boat too to say why would we can't impeach him? they been impeaching him since the day elected and before that. >> next week with congress back here to be busy with hill, the
12:06 pm
advisor on russia expected on monday. thursday, gordon's online, the investor to the e.u. is coming to capitol hill as well. also receiving a subpoena, energy secretary rick perry. shep. >> shepard: mike emanuel belong to investment and impeachment inquiry heats up on capital here but we expect to hear from john roberts, president trump, has not begun, john? >> the last time i checked, holding outside of the oval office, and they may have gone in last minute or so but this is a meeting between the president and chinese -- but on the positive side, there could be some sort of deal between the united states and china on trade, a comprehensive deal that the president want to but may be something a little smaller. we are not sure but that is so i don't want to speculate. let's go back to the issue at hand, rudy giuliani, i talked with rudy giuliani earlier today after a couple of reports surfaced the u.s. attorney's
12:07 pm
office for the seven district of new york beginning to look into giuliani's financial dealings with the two men. giuliani told me he had a couple of relationships with lev parnas and furman, legal advice and consulting for them on business and security matters. but don't forget, furman and lev parnas put giuliani in touch with former federal general in ukraine as giuliani trying to dig up material on joe and hunter biden. giuliani said he has no reason to believe the dealings with lev parnas and furman under investigation. he told me those campaign finance violations they were arrested for go back to before he started working with the tube. those two men have been indicted by the southern district of new york for campaign finance violations in the u.s. office alleged they made a calm -- associated with president trump and pete sessions. the u.s. attorney jeff berman talking about it.
12:08 pm
>> protecting the integrity of our elections and protecting our elections from unlawful foreign, functions of the campaign finance laws. and this office has made clear, we will not hesitate to investigate and prosecute those engaged in criminal conduct that draws the integrity of the political process. >> shepard: we should point out giuliani was not mentioned at all in the indictment. a couple of things about the former mayor, he is considering to respond to a house subpoena with house documents related to the ukraine investigation and his involvement over their mek trying to dig up material on the bidens. an offer from lindsey graham to appear before the judiciary committee but the caveat he needs to consult with colleagues whether he did that he could protect issues of turning gnomic attorney/client privilege. >> shepard: of the treasury secretary with sanctions about to be slapped on turkey, is that right?
12:09 pm
>> not sanctions to be slapped but the authority to do it if necessary. president trump signed an executive order and this really is a warning shot to turk as president not to go to too far in syria. and it would give broad sweeping authority to the treasury department to level sanctions against the turkish government and turkish entities if the president believes that they have gone too far. the president tweeted yesterday, he's got three options in turkey. he could send american troops to handle the situation, slept sanctions on turkey or me and mediate -- mediate but not necessarily himself but the united states to mediate between the turks and the kurds. the president says he prefers the third option. he wants to make sure treasury has got the hammer to make sure that they do what he promised. this is the treasury of secretary. the president wants to make clear and it is imperative turkey not allow even a single isis fighter to escape.
12:10 pm
these are very powerful sanctions. we don't want to use them. but we can shut down the turkish economy if we need to. >> we should point out a schedule to visit the president of the white house mid-november, shep. >> shepard: john roberts chief white house correspondent, thank you, john. we are waiting for the president to weigh in on capitol hill questioning as well as the quickly rising tensions in the middle east. this afternoon, we are learning more than 1,000 u.s. troops along with fighter jets are headed to saudi arabia. this is new and a tug-of-war over recent oil and today, iran claiming a missile attack on one of its tankers. and all of it in the backdrop of a deadly assault on american allies in syria. new today, the pentagon is now warning that it isn't just the kurds in danger, but also u.s. troops are at risk. as turkey ramps up its attacks. the strong words from u.s.

12:16 pm
criticized, accusing the white house of a banning american allies. the republican senator lindsey graham tweeting today "every concern i had about president trump's serious decision is coming true in spades." the reemergence of isis is on the way, and if you think only europe is threatened, you are sadly mistaken. the defense secretary said the united states is not abandoning the kurds but insist america did not leave dominic give turkey the green light for this operation but during the same ns conference, the pentagon is sending roughly 2,000 u.s. troops to saudi arabia with fighter jets and other warplanes. more on that from the pentagon shortly, but first we are hearing more from civilians caught in the cross fire between the turks and the kurds. >> these are my brother's children, my brother's children. >> shepard: the united nation's refugee reports tens of thousands of people right now
12:17 pm
trying to escape this violence. it is an eerily familiar pain in the region where a bloodiest civil war has gone on for eight, long years almost. and where the islamic state unleashed atrocities throughout the country. team fox coverage, reporting from the pentagon, first, steve from li iraq, steve. >> shepard this was day three of the turkish military operation against kurds along the syrian border, and they are pushing in deeper. kurdish officials say the goal is to establish a 20-mile buffer zone all along that border. that is an enormous military operation and one that is tremendously ambitious. to do that, they have to move out hundreds of thousands of people now they are met. you can see the scene today, smoke rising from some of those villages. some kurdish villages across the border in syria now surrounded by turkish forces, using
12:18 pm
warplanes as well as showing throughout the day. and you try to get an accurate death toll, it simply doesn't exist at this point. turco turkish officials with more than 200 kurdish fighters,d turkish admits one of its soldiers killed along with at least nine civilians. one thing to note that is clear, that is the chaos this military operation has unleashed. the u.n. now saying more than 100,000 people are on the move, and they are pleading, trying to get south by whatever way they can, cars, buses, motorcycles, cars, families taken whatever they can to try to get away from the fighting. hospital -- hospitals to the north shut down, and fled and those not able to get out in tie consequences can be dire. >> this house you see here, children were playing and the boy died and the girl lost her leg. >> shepard: there has been widespread international

criticism of turkeys military operations, and antiterrorist organization and not just u.s. officials but european officials and the middle east, even russian president vladimir putin said this military move by turkey could open the way for resurgence by the islamic state. and they have bristled at the criticism and warned european leaders. i can open the door and let loose 2 million syrian refugees into europe and is bowing the military operation will not be over until every last terrorist is neutralized from a shepherd back to you. >> shepard: steve, and iraq, team fox coverage continues lucas tomlinson with the latest from the pentagon, lucas. >> shep, despite president trump to reduce military troops in the u.s., his defense secretary order 2,000 additional troops to saudi arabia. this is in the wake of an attack on two saudi oil refineries last month the pentagon blamed on iran. speak with the forces from

12:37 pm
community of porter ranch as people slept. they sheriff's office called for 100,002to evacuate. most of them left, very chaotic as they arrived and the fire jump to freeways, the letter letter 5 and 210, a jailbreak as if nothing. the firefighters trying to race ahead and almost pointless -- pointless to slow it down. the firefighters playing defense right now with the winds over 20 gusting to 50. trying to protect these structures also, dropping and only 25 of 23,000 homes sustained damage and one man in his 50s died of a heart attack trying to protect and save his home. >> the wind is pushing it trait demonstrate to the stables. by the time we got up there, the smoke was really, really bad. >> i so that we were probably going to eventually need to evacuate. so i woke everybody up and said listen, let's pack. >> shepard: so you already know, the freeways are a nightm.

it took three hours to go to two exits. right now this fire is 0% contained, shepard. >> shepard: what about those preemptive power outages across the state? >> yeah, you know, the idea is if you shut down the power, fallen trees because when they fall, they won't cause a fire. well, southern california did indeed shut off power to about 21,000 customers, not the 250,000 they warned. that is different than pg&e up north in northern california, they did cut power to 2 million people. half of those, the power restored for them, but of course, they pay $30 billion in liability claims, scared, and a lot of criticism from the government. but we have to wait until after the fire season to see if that is working as well as they hoped, back to you. >> shepard: there is a bit of a fire behind you. a tornado looking thing, look behind you, william.

12:40 pm
couple of months before her normal rotation would have ended and in her opening statement with fox news, has gained access to basically says she was taught by state department officials president trump wanted her head because of allegations that she had been disloyal, but state department officials or bosses thought she had done everything right, and what this comes in the midst of his allegations that rudy giuliani and those two guys who were arrested yesterday and charged just as they are about to get on a plane and leave the country, that they were, in fact exercising the campaign, because she wouldn't go along with efforts to try to dig up research on joe biden. but this is very interesting and for all the allegations against the bidens and they are certainly worth investigating, the only people that face criminal charges at this point in the whole ukraine matter are
12:41 pm
the two associates of rudy giuliani. >> shepard: when you look, it's coming so fast these days, chris. you wake up in the morning, and it's another breaking news and another breaking news. and they are all the kinds of things to be a lead story on a nightly newscast. there will be six or eight of them. so you have to back up and take a look at the big picture. i wonder when you do that with all your experience, what do you think we are seeing in this historic moment? >> well, i think for all of the criticism of the whistle-blower you are hearing from republicans the basic story that the whistle-blower alleged in the first place appears to have been largely cooperated. that there wasn't a phone call between the president and the ukrainian president zelensky. that it was so alarming, that to a lot of people inside the white house, permanent intelligence officials, not political appointees but it was handled differently than those phone calls normally be handled. it seems to have been involved
12:42 pm
around a campaign, both before and after to get information about both whether or not ukraine had interfered with the 2016 election. an opposition research on joe biden for the 2020 election. so much so that after marie yovanovitch was fired the top u.s. diplomat bill taylor was writing that he thought there was a player linkage between u.s. aid, u.s. military aid to ukraine and getting investigations on the biden research. the basic allocation by the whistle-blower seems to me have been largely cooperated. now, does that rise to the level of impeachment? does that rise to the level of removal? folks have to decide but the basic allocation has been largely confirmed. >> shepard: tomorrow is a really big day. tomorrow -- we are at the z and after resounding victory over vanderbilt, now, it is time
