House GOP leaders are checking to see whether the latest Trumpcare revisions have changed enough votes to bring it closer to passage — especially with the conservative Freedom Caucus. If there's enough movement, they could bring the House back from recess as early as next week, according to two leadership sources.

Don't get too excited: It's all part of a frantic effort to show movement on the health care bill to satisfy President Trump, who doesn't want the House to leave for a two-week recess without some action to satisfy Republicans' Obamacare repeal promises. But even Republicans close to the leadership don't think the latest changes are enough to make this the final bill — and there's no sign yet that the GOP has picked up enough Freedom Caucus votes.

The problem: All they've settled on is the addition of a $15 billion risk-sharing fund to help health insurers with high-cost patients. Not only is it similar to an Obamacare reinsurance program — with less money — it doesn't do anything to solve the basic dispute with the Freedom Caucus. It wants to let states get rid of the Obamacare rules requiring insurers to cover sick people, and banning them from charging higher premiums for those patients. The rest of the GOP doesn't want to touch that.

The bottom line: Leadership sources say it's all up to the Freedom Caucus now.

Update: From AshLee Strong, spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan: "Member discussions will continue and should a path toward 216 votes emerge, the speaker wouldn't hesitate to bring members back to fulfill our promise to repeal and replace Obamacare."

Trump claims TikTok will be banned if not sold by Sept. 15

President Trump said Monday that TikTok will be shut down in the U.S. if it hasn't been bought by Microsoft or another company by Sept. 15.

Why it matters: Trump appears to have backed off his threat to immediately ban TikTok after speaking with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, who said Sunday that the company will pursue discussions with TikTok’s Chinese parent company ByteDance to purchase the app in the U.S.

The Manhattan District Attorney's office suggested for the first time Monday that it's investigating President Trump and his company for "alleged bank and insurance fraud," the New York Times first reported.

The state of play: The disclosure was made in a filing in federal court that seeks to force accounting firm Mazars USA to comply with a subpoena for eight years of Trump's personal and corporate tax returns.
