officials in ukraine, tight-lips from fallout from trump's phone call, asking zelensky to dig up dirt on joe biden and his son. officials believing that getting involved can hurt ukraine. but officials say rudy giuliani did pressure the ukraine administration to investigate hunter biden. clarissa ward is standing by in kiev, with the latest. what have you found, clarissa? >> that's right. we managed to track down two different people that are cited in the whistleblower's complaint. the first one, sergei lyashenko. he was an adviser to the campaign of ukrainian president zelens zelensky. he said the minute the election was won by zelensky, that the calls started coming in from the
1:13 am
president's personal lawyer, rudy giuliani, that giuliani appeared very keen to try to meet with zelensky. and he said he appeared particularly keen to meet with zelensky before his innaug ra inauguration. he said there was no doubt to what zelensky's team what the purpose and the focus was in ukraine. that he was focused on issues of what he referred to as collusion between ukrainian officials and the democrats in the 2016 election, against president trump. we should add these claims are unsubstantiated. and that he was focused on investigating hunter biden and then vice president joe biden and hunter biden's membership on the board of a ukrainian energy
1:14 am
company. ultimately, sergei lyashenko, was accused by giuliani of being involved in collusion with the democrats. he lost a position in the current administration. as you said, for the ukrainians, this is an existential issue. they cannot be seen taking sides politically one way or another in this. they rely heavily on the u.s. for aid and they're keen for this to blow over. >> clarissa ward, thank you for that. an official received a letter that dozens of his e-mails, sent to hillary clinton, were now being recategorized as classified. it is one instance of what "the washington post" calls an intensifying e-mail probe by the trump administration of dozens of former clinton aides. the widescale reclassification
1:15 am
of e-mails, is 130 current and former state department officials. several people telling "the washington post," the recent change in the investigation, was an effort to harass diplomats for doing their job. to business this morning. the u.s./china trade war has been painful for american farmers. and another issue is causing frustration with the administration, bio fuel. corn growers have sent a letter to the president, saying the bio fuel waivers has reduced commde for their crops. the epa exempted small refin refinersrefiners were given exceptions from epa laws. a number of ethanol plants have closed or reduced production, costing 2,700 jobs. if refiners use fewer soybeans

1:20 am
the crown prince of saudi arabia, says he takes full responsibility for the death of columnist jamal khashoggi, but does not tasay he ordered the
1:21 am
killing. he was asked directly about the murder. >> did you order the murder of jamal khashoggi? >> translator: absolutely not. this was a heinous crime. but i take full responsibility as a leader in saudi arabia, especially since it was committed by individuals working for the saudi government. >> what does that mean? that you take responsibility? >> translator: when a crime is committed against a saudi citizen by officials working for the saudi government, as a leader, i must take responsibility. this was a mistake. i must take all actions to avoid these things in the future. >> a mistake. five high-ranking saudi officials were dismissed. another 18 in connection with the death. the investigation is being carried out. once charges are proven against
1:22 am
someone, it will be prosecuted regardless of rank. in hong kong, violent clashes between demonstrators and the police now stretched into their 17th week. thousands marched peacefully, before confrontations took an aggressive turn. protesters, throwing bricks at police. police throwing rubber bullets and water cannons. cnn's will ripley is live in long congress. the hong kong. the 70th anniversary is a piece of theater for the chinese government. and then, there's this. this democracy, and the protests on the street in sharp contrast. >> exactly, christine. images of burning in the people's republic of china. that's what could potentially
1:23 am
happen here. i was standing about 17 minutes that way, christine. we saw a huge smoke plume rise up. it was a fire set right here. this is one of the entrances to the subway station. you can see how charred the steps are here. this exit is closed. there were dozens of fires here yesterday. they said 100 petrol bombs, molotov cocktails, were thrown by protesters yesterday. and they have spray painted the city. it is that mindset that is troubling to many people, as we watch what could unfold here on the streets of hong kong tomorrow. police are holding a press conference. they say what is happening, is moving the city one step closer to terrorism. and that terrorism reference is par important. if they see what is unfolding
1:24 am
here, it would be damage to property, injury to civilians, the intent to disrupt some political and ideological reason. and then, hong kong could institute something known as emergency law, that some fear could turn this city, which is known to be a bastian of freedom. it could turn hong kong into a land of martial law, where police have heightened powers to crack down on dissent. and the fear is if hong kong were to turn that corner, they might not turn back. >> it is, will, an international business center, right? you have to think that the chinese government, the chinese authorities know, the chilling effect they have on business, international business, by being too heavy-handed. >> reporter: absolutely. and that is what they're trying to weigh here. maintaining law and order in the
1:25 am
city. we need to put into context -- i was here in this neighborhood yesterday. it was chaotic, absolutely. you get in the taxi and five minutes later it's normal. these things occur in pockets. the crowds are getting smaller. tomorrow, they're calling on people to protest in ten different areas around the city. you have to maintain law and order. you have to maintain the sense that international businesses continue to feel comfortable doing business here. the confidence that hong kong -- one of the fewest markets in the world, will continue to operate freely and will not become like any other chinese city. >> thanks for walking that through us from hong kong. prisoners broke out of jail this weekend. they were able to force open a secure d'oor and escape. they were helped in the rescue, by one person on the outside.
1:26 am
they found four escapees should be considered extremely dangerous. there's a deal for the whistleblower to testify. but there's new concerns for that person's safety. we'll bring you that next. ...fragrance shouldn't either. air wick's new technology releases fragrance upwards and outwards, unlike glade. so now you can fill every corner with fragrance. upgrade to air wick.
