7:06 am
good morning, ginger. >> if those pictures didn't tell you how big of a deal this was, imelda now the seventh most rain ever in a tropical system in the united states. so harvey is number one and there are only six others before that. gosh, i so want to show you where the heaviest rain fell, it was east of houston and north closest to conroe, winnie taking it to beaumont. that's why i-10 was shut down there. in just 12 hours and that's why we still have flood warnings out there. but also because we could get another inch of rain. we have more tropical moisture, tom, fueling into southeast texas through the day today. even an inch could put more water on top of something that is so saturated. >> so true, we'll keep an eye on houston all weekend. ginger, thank you. now to that terror arrest. disturbing new details about a new jersey man accused of scouting dozens of high-profile locations for possible attacks including the statue of liberty, the u.s. capitol and places like the george washington bridge. whit johnson is there this morning. whit, good morning. >> reporter: tom, good morning to you. prosecutors say alexei saab

7:08 am
structural weaknesses to maximize damage. saab was living in new jersey. investigators say he came to the u.s. in 2000, applied for citizenship in 2005, becoming a naturalized citizen just three years later. authorities say he traveled to lebanon ten times in 17 years getting extensive weapons training, ak-47s, m-16s and bombmaking. court documents showing drawings saab allegedly made of explosives. >> it's those kind of locations they're looking for because they want to inflict maximum fear and then potentially maximum economic damage on the united states. >> reporter: prosecutors also say that saab attempted to murder a man he suspected to be an israeli spy and then he confessed to a sham marriage in which he was allegedly paid $20,000 to marry a woman he hardly knew to try to gain her citizenship.

7:10 am
rudy giuliani, were pressuring ukrainian officials to look into vice president joe biden's diplomatic efforts in that country when his son was doing business there during the obama administration. overnight giuliani at first denied those allegations. >> did you ask the ukraine to investigate joe biden? >> no, actually i didn't. >> reporter: then seconds later admitting he did just that. >> you did ask ukraine to look into joe biden. >> of course, i did. >> you just said you didn't. >> reporter: house intelligence chairman adam schiff is alleging a cover-up after the acting director of national intelligence and the justice department blocked the inspector general from sharing the whistle-blower's complaint with congress. in a letter to acting intelligence director joseph maguire, it was bluntly stated that maguire and other state officials were trying to protect the president. >> do you stand by the statement in your letter? >> it likely involves either the president or people around him. >> reporter: but giuliani showing utter contempt for schiff and any congressional investigation. >> if adam schiff sent me a letter i would just tear it up and throw it away. >> yeah, yeah, yeah, of course, of course.

7:12 am
to say they want to phase out engyfossil fue been hearing time and time again in london this afternoon is they're talking about gretta tundra, that famous swedish activist at just 16 that's become the face of this movement. she famously stepped out of class last year in sweden for the solo clima sikd now look at what her movement has become. we don't know exact numbers yet, guys, but it's looking to be the largest climate protest in our planet's history. tom. >> all right, maggie rulli for us, thank you for that. the latest on rising tensions with iran this morning. we're getting new images of the aftermath from the attack on the saudi oil facilities as the white house considers a peaceful resolution but also keeps military options on the table. chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz is tracking the latest from washington and, martha, new clues this morning. >> reporter: exactly, tom. saudi arabia this morning giving journalists the first close-up look of that destruction from the cruise missile and drone attack less than a week ago flying a group of reporters and

good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, cecilia, good morning to you. yeah, his political opponents are calling on him to step down but his allies are rallying around him and this morning trudeau is apologizing but not resigning. following the revelation of a third blackface incident. this time captured on video in an undated clip broadcast on canada's global news. >> it was not something that represents the person i've become, the leader i try to be and it was really embarrassing. >> reporter: the video surfacing just hours after "time" magazine first published this photo of trudeau wearing dark makeup from head to toe while working as a 29-year-old teacher. the photo was published in a private school yearbook. >> i dressed up in an aladdin costume and put makeup on. i shouldn't have done that. i should have known better but i
7:15 am
didn't and i'm really sorry. >> reporter: trudeau saying he also used dark makeup as a teenager to impersonate singer harry belafonte. >> when i was in high school, i dressed up at a talent show and sang "day-o" with makeup on. >> reporter: trudeau who comes from one of canada's most prominent political families says he should have known better. >> i have always acknowledged that i come from a place of privilege, but i now need to acknowledge that comes with a massive blind spot. >> reporter: and it's not clear how much this will affect trudeau in canada because many, many people here are willing to forgive him, but again, he is up for re-election, and election day is just about a month away. michael? >> all right. we'll see if it affects him soon. now to some startling new developments in the vaping emergency. another death reported, this time in missouri, and the cdc now confirming there have

what's going on there, will? >> reporter: cecilia, they've been preparing for a human invasion here in rachel for quite some time. the town only has a population of 54 people and really doesn't have the infrastructure for thousands of people to flood in. in fact, they just finished this makeshift stage late last night. the big question now is exactly how many people are going to show up. so far several hundred earth lings some from as far as france have landed in rachel, the closest town to area 51. that secretive military base long depicted by hollywood as housing extraterrestrial life and technology. advertisers cashing in as well. bud light creating limited edition alien themed cans and merchandise. shak three months ago it started as a joke on facebook. the call by matty roberts to storm area 51 but the joke took
