patriots amid accusations of sexual assault and misconduct. >> after answering football questions. i'm done with the rest of it. >> yo, this is not happening right now! what the [ bleep ]? >> you've got to see this. a car crashes into a mall near chicago and then keeps driving right through it. ♪ ♪ this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi. >> good morning we begin with vice president joe biden accusing president trump of abuse of power asking the president several times to investigate his son hunter in an attempt to undermine his chief political rival. >> in a statement the former vice president said this, quote, if these reports are true then there is truly no bottom to president trump's willingness to
abuse his power and abase our country. we're covering all angles. cnn senior national correspondent is in kiev, ukraine. we do want to start in washington with you, sarah. the conversations with foreign leaders are, quote, always appropriate. what else is he saying about these phone calls this morning? >> good morning, christi and victor. it is clear this controversy is not going away for president trump despite his dismissals yesterday of questions about this story and sources tell cnn that in a july phone call with the ukrainian president, president trump asked the ukrainian leader of former vice president joe biden and there's no evidence that trump asked for anything in return and that is the result of the controversial whistle-blower complaint, and an unknown person filed into the watchdog in august. they're trying to get their hands on that complaint despite putting up roadblocks by the
administration. adam schiff said democrats are not giving up. take a listen. >> the inspector general found these allegations credible, but he only had 14 days to investigate them. so they deserve a thorough investigation. that's what we're intent on doing and come hell or high water that's what we're going to do. >> trump yesterday described this story as ridiculous, speaking next to the australian prime minister who was visiting. he also described the whistle blower as a partisan person despite also admitting that he does not know the identity of the person who filed the complaint. >> i don't know the identity of the whistleblower. i just know it's a partisan person meaning it comes from another party. i don't have any idea, but i can say it was a totally appropriate conversation. it was actually a beautiful conversation. >> cnn has reported the white house's council's office and the
acting intelligence director joseph maguire will be testifying before lawmakers so we can expect more answers about this call and perhaps others that can be part of the complaint later this week, victor and christi. >> sarah westwood, we appreciate it. thank you. >> cnn correspondent matthew chance joins us now from kieva. >> matthew, earlier you said the ukrainians are mortified that they've been dragged into this american political debate. have they mentioned what they -- if they have any intention of doing anything about it? >> well, look, they're in this building right behind me which is the presidential administration in the center of the capital kiev and president zelensky is in there with his closest aides trying to work out what their strategy is going to be. they are very uncomfortable and they're stuck within a rock and a hard place and they don't want to anger the current president, president bush because he's
important for them and the relationship with the united states and ukraine is the most important strategic alliance that ukraine has, but they're also mindful that they don't want to anger who could be the next president in 2020 it could be joe biden who is the next president. they're keeping their lips well and truly sealed and that might change as the thinking evolves and at the moment it's no comment. add to that that they've got this meeting in new york next week face to face. they've been pushing since the election of the ukrainian president with the u.n. general assembly and they want that to be about military aid, diplomatic support in their battle with russia, but at the moment it will be overshadowed by this controversy. it's inevitable that they'll have to break their silence at
some point, christi. >> i'll take it for you, matthew. matthew chance in kiev. thank you. >> xan wu and garrett gath. xan, you point out to give congress information about the whistleblower? what are congress' options here? >> congress has to probably go to the courts. there is one alternative path within the statute where the whistleblower could ask to deliver their complaint to congress, but the way that's set up is they have to get some guidance from the agency which obviously is not forthcoming because maguire doesn't want him to testify so this illustrates a problem where no law is capable of reading into the facts ahead of time. someone's refusal to actually abide by it and enforce it in this case. the executive is claiming
confidentiality in terms of classified issues and they'll also be claims executive privilege and it sets up a direct conflict between the executive refusing to let the legislature do its job. >> you know, garrett, there may be some people thinking gosh, we just got out of the whole scenario with the mueller report. now we have this again. do you get a sense that there are people looking at this saying i think i have confidence in the 2020 election? >> yeah, and i think that one of the things that seems very clear as we line up the time lines is this controversy almost began the moment that the mueller testimony wrapped up, that mueller testified on july 21st, the first of the telephone calls that part of this complaint started july 25th and it's almost as if donald trump precisely understood the road map and what he could do that sort of fell within the lines
that mueller had already decided was not a crime and wanted to sort of charge ahead. shan and i were saying this is like a robber going out and robbing another bank because he knows exactly how to do so. >> there were no real consequence and no charges out of the mueller report that came out of that. he does have -- many analysts say he has a lot of latitude in conversations that he has with foreign governments, is anything that you see to this point, is it criminal? does it fall under abuse of power? is there anything beyond that that could be here? >> in terms of the potential criminal charges and we don't know that much about the facts yet and there's a buffet of charges. there's bribery, all sorts of things, campaign finance violations and abuse of power is written all over this, of course. i think the doj and the white house are obviously going to
suppress this and they'll try to make it murky and muddy. first, the statute or the law is not discretionary. it says shall deliver report to congress and they're not doing that. second of all, whatever the president may say about his conversation, he, from the reports, is asking that his private, personal attorney be involved in this. giuliani, his personal, private attorney has no government role and it's obviously of a personal nature for him. >> so i want to ask you, garrett, when we look ahead to 2020, what is the potency of president trump's assertions against or allegations against ukraine and vice president biden. i'm wondering what the risk versus the reward is for him with his base as we head into 2020. >> the risk versus report for his base is to continue to muddy the democratic opponent whether
the facts support this. i think the challenge for the country going forward and shan was touching on this a little bit in his answer just now is that most of our systems and most of our laws are not written to deal with a national security threat if the national security threat is the president of the united states and that we sort of see these systems and processes sort of struggling to respond to a president who is willing to prioritize his own politics and his own election above the national interests of the country and that he sees those as completely inseparable and that becomes a really big challenge particularly on the foreign policy realm where the president of the united states receives an enormous amount of discretion from the courts and from the legislative branch in terms of national security decisions. shan wu, garrett graff, thank
you, gentlemen. >> good to see you. the new england patriots. they've had enough, after 11 days the team has decided to show antonio brown the door. the new allegations for the troubled nfl star that led to his release. >> a tour bus crashed near bryce canyon national park. four people have died and dozens are injured and we'll tell you what we know this morning. several 2020 candidates speaking today in iowa at the polk county steak fry. cnn is there covering it live.

thank goodness for the people of texas, heavy rain is moving out of the southeast part of the state. the flooding, though, is still a major problem for them. look at the gridlock in houston metro areas. this is on freeway i-10. look at those cars. hundreds of them submerged in water. they're just abandoned on the roads there. >> 43 inches of rain fell within three days in the areas between winnie and beaumont. some people who saw their homes flooded by hurricane harvey two years ago are seeing rain seep into their houses again. ryan young is live in houston for us. ryan, i know that a lot of the water levels, they've receded, but still, so many problems. >> yeah. absolutely. the water has receded in so many places and this has left a lasting effect. so many people were battered by
hurricane harvey and this was one of those things that they didn't need to happen again. we saw several neighbors who lost everything and it's only been two years since hurricane harvey. >> tonight, texas is recovering from heavy rains. the receding floodwaters revealing a glimpse of the damage. houston's fire department responding to 2,000 emergency calls with sheriff's officers rescuing more than 400 people trapped in the water. friday morning people were still being rescued. this family living north of houston spent the night in their attic waiting for help. in kingwood texas, john's house is in rubble on his front lawn. his family is drying out after escaping water that rose surprisingly fast. >> it came half way to the driveway. with my wife, my child, my son and the dog had to swim out. >> reporter: the national weather service reporting dramatic differences in rain totals for the remnants of tropical depression imelda. harris county getting 15 inches
while jefferson county got three inches. at least three people are dead including one man who reportedly drowned until he drove into this intersection. >> in this case he didn't heed that warning. chaos in major highways as hundreds of vehicles are abandoned and swallowed by the water. police say they towed 1600 cars and are working to reunite them with their owners. >> a loose barge crashed into the bridge, causing severe damage, smashing the support beams. underpasses in the roads like this also cracking through the pressure. some texans who lived through hurricane harvey's devastation just two years ago starting over again. >> it's heartbreaking, you know? to lose everything twice. >> reporter: yeah, this pain is hard to understand. when you talk to several homeowners who said their house had never flooded before, even
during harvey. this time it was different. the water came too fast. one man said he had his neighbors help him put his children on their shoulders because they couldn't wait any longer. they were worried about how fast the water was moving. >> wow. ryan young for us there. ryan, thank you. >> authorities say at least four people were killed in a tour bus crash near bryce canyon, utah, and the video illustrates. i mean, look at this bus. >> so you understand that at least 30 people, many of them tourists from china, many of them injured. it happened yesterday afternoon. it ran off the road, rolled into a guardrail. a team of investigators from the ntsb are expected to arrive today to find out what caused this. meanwhile, the chinese embassy in washington says it has sent officials to help the victims, too. >> still to come, some democrats are focusing on former vice
president joe biden's gaffe as signs or questions about his age. is age a legitimate concern that voters should consider going into 2020? also, the stars are getting ready to walk the red carpet as sunday's emmy awards. there's one big change coming to the stage, though. spending time together, sometimes means doing nothing at all. holiday inn. we're there. so you can be too. here's the story of green mountain coffee roasters costa rica paraíso. meet sergio. and his daughter, maria. sergio's coffee tastes spectacular. because costa rica is spectacular. so we support farmers who use natural compost. to help keep the soil healthy. and the coffee delicious. for future generations. all for a smoother tasting cup. green mountain coffee roasters. woman 1: i had no symptoms of hepatitis c. man 1: mine... man 1: ...caused liver damage. vo: epclusa treats all main types of chronic hep c. vo: whatever your type, ask your doctor if epclusa is your kind of cure.

a lot of people are excited for the polk county democrat steak fry in iowa. the steak's going to be great, but that's not the only reason people are excited because the event is expected to include a huge crowd including 17 democratic presidential candidates. >> why is iowa so important? i know a lot of people might be wondering that. this is the starting line essentially in presidential politics. the caucus can indicate how a candidate can perform throughout the election season. most of all, iowa gets attention from candidates because the caucus system is so hands-on. it attracts a lot of people through community events like the steak fry. cnn political reporter saenz is there, good morning. what are you seeing? >> they're descending here on iowa for the polk county steak
fry. this is an event that used to be hosted by tom harken and has taken on by the democratic party and really, this is an opportunity for the campaign to have a show of force and emphasize their presence in the state. it's an ability and a chance for them to show off their organizing strength as well as try to connect in courts and bring over voters to their side. the polk county steak fry isn't starting for a few more hour, but this morning each of the events will put their own mark on their events and joe biden will be hosting something called bidenfest. kamala harris will be meeting with mcdonald's workers who are striking for a $15 minimum wage. elizabeth warren will be using this as an organizing opportunity to train volunteers and then go into the steak fry and talk with voters. mayor pete buttigieg is launching a four-day bus tour, trying to replicate the famous straight talk e prexpress that
mccain had when he was running for president. they're holding their own little event ahead of the steak fry, and then they'll be marching over and it will be an opportunity for them to show their strength and show their support in this first in the nation caucus state. cnn and the des moines register will be releasing an iowa poll that will give us a snapshot of the current state of the race in iowa, less than four months before the caucuses. joe biden led in most of the polls since he entered the 2020 race and he's closely trailed by bernie sanders and elizabeth warren. we'll see if there's any movement when it comes to the feelings of iowa caucus goers five months before they take place. >> arlette saenz, thank you. jimmy carter, the longest living president says there
should be an age limit for presidential candidates. three candidates are in their 70s. joe biden is 76, bernie sanders, 78 and elizabeth war ernren, 70. here with me to discuss cnn political analyst julian seletzer. >> thank you for having me. >> this is a very sensitive topic talking about age of a candidate. in 2016 is america ready for a female president? why is it so sensitive to ask if america's ready for an 80-year-old president? biden and sanders would both turn 80 if they're elected, while in office. >> it shouldn't be. people are worried about ageism and being biased against people who are old just because they are old, but there are ways to
ask the question that doesn't fall into that trap. it's fair to ask if someone has the physical and mental prowess necessary for campaigning in an election and for governing and the generational questions about the vision that someone has because of their age, and i think it's fair to have this as part of the conversation. >> you know, you point out that it's fair to have it as part of the conversation, but when we've seen it on debate stages, it's come off as either clumsy or mean spirited. it's also come from one percenters, or 2 percenters in the polls. how important is not just the how, but the who? who is bringing up the age of competitors or candidates? >> the how does matter, obviously. in the last democratic decade castro came under a lot of heat for the way that he attacked bid biden directly suggesting that
he couldn't remember what he just said. the who doesn't necessarily need to be the other candidates. it could be the commenters and it could be the voters who again have this as part of the mix as they've evaluating what we need in the next four years and can that person handle what is the most arduous jobs in the world. >> president carter's comments were the jumping off piece on cnn.com and you point out that observers aren't questioning the mental stamina in the other septogenarans. questioning if joe biden is too old to be president. he's not even the oldest man in the race. is this because he's the front-runner or is this something else? >> no. part of it are the missteps on the campaign trail and some are the debates where he does have trouble with his words or keeping up with the questions. those have raised this issue.
part of it is the generational issue that he has said things about working with southern senators in the 1970s and his views on bussing, or his views on politics in general about the bipartisanship that just seem out of step with what is on today and that's with everyone over 70. >> we can put up the ages of the candidate, currently, but the average age for the u.s. president has been 55 years old. donald trump was the oldest first-term president. hillary clinton had she won, could have been second oldest. if sanders had won in 2016, he would have been olest. mitt romney would have qualified for the top five. john mccain would have been the oldest and president obama won in '08 and 2012, fifth youngest. why are we choosing older leaders and older nominees considering older candidates for
presidents. it's not like the life expectancy has jumped so much in the last decade. >> no. part of it is fitness that older people are in better shape in this day and age and so they're able to perform a lot of the campaign tasks. part of it is familiarity and a lot of them have recognition and in this day and age this matters for fund-raising and media attention and it plays into the cycle and it's not necessarily the best way to pick a leader and maybe we should think about what generation we want in the oval office as much as we do about some of these other aspects of the presidency. >> yeah. as we point out the commonality between biden, sanders and warren that not only the three candidates in their 70s on the democratic side, they're also at the top three on the top of most polls. thank you. >> thanks for having me. >> it's fall and game day in
gainesville. some people get to have all the fun, enter coy wire. >> hey! put us in the game, christi. victor, what a great morning. we're here in gainesville in the practice field for the gators number nine florida gators and i'm going to go find the grill. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ about it?othing you can do downy wrinkleguard is a fabric conditioner that helps protect you from wrinkles all day. pants washed with downy wrinkleguard and detergent are virtually wrinkle free. try downy wrinkleguard.

the new england patriots have cut ties with antonio brown after just 11 days with the team. of course, there are new accusations of intimidation against him, as well. >> this week an unidentified woman came forward to "sports illustrated" that brown harassed her in 2017 while she was working for him. following the story the woman accused brown of sending her threatening text messages after which her attorney contacted the nfl. the latest allegations are separate from the ones made by his former trainer brittany taylor accusing of of sexual assault and he is not charged with any crimes. the weather is cooling down. college football is heating up and the one and only coy wire. coy wire is in gainesville, florida, having more fun that

this morning one of jeffrey epstein's many accusers is revealing new details about her alleged sexual abuse by britain's prince andrew. >> drew fray said she was forced to have sex with the prince when she was 17 years old. court documents show that dufray accused epstein of keeping her a sex slave. last night, dufrey shared her
claims about prince andrew, watch. >> he was an abuser. he was a participant. the first time in london -- i was so young, she woke me up and said you're going to meet a prince today. i didn't know at that point that i was going to be trafficked to that prince. and then that night prince andrew came to her house in london and we went out to club tramp. prince andrew got me alcohol, it was in the vip section. it was i'm pretty sure it was vodka. prince andrew was like let's dance together and i was like okay. and we leave club tramp and i hop in the car with gillen and jeffrey and gillen says he's coming back to the house. and i want to you do for him what you do for epstein. i couldn't believe it. he wasn't rude or anything about
it. he said you know, thank you. and some kind of soft sentiments like that and left. i just couldn't believe it. i couldn't believe that even royalty were involved. he denies that it ever happened. and he's going to keep denying that it ever happened. but he knows the truth and i know the truth. >> buckingham palace previously released a statement on the accusations against the prince. it reads, it is emphatically denied that the duke of york had any form of sexual contact or relationship with virginia roberts giuffre. any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation. we want to show you some of the large crowds of students who walked out of their schools to demand action on climate change. it happened in places not just around our country, but around the world there were huge
