7:03 am
ukraine resigned late friday after the whistle-blower accused him of doing damage control in the alleged effort to get ukraine to dig up dirt on joe biden ahead of the 2020 election. kurt volker, a former ambassador, was sent to ukraine in the wake of the russia invasion. 's one of several state department officials named in the whistle-blower's complaint. that document which sparked the impeachment inquiry claims volker and another ambassador sought to help ukrainian leaders understand and respond to the differing messages they were receiving from official u.s. channels on the one hand and from mr. giuliani on the other. rudy giuliani is the president's private lawyer. the whistle-blower called him a central figure in the alleged effort to pressure ukraine. giuliani's name mentioned 30 times in the complaint. secretary of state mike pompeo got served a subpoena friday. house investigators hope to put state department records under a microscope paying careful attention to any mention of
7:04 am
giuliani. giuliani told sky news he was acting in an official capacity. >> the state department asked me to help them deal with the ukrainian government with regard to meetings with president trump. the state department doesn't investigate a crime. i was asked to do this by the state department. >> reporter: pompeo says he's satisfied all state department officials had an appropriate mission. >> to create a better relationship between the united states and ukraine. >> reporter: speaking on msnbc's "morning joe," house speaker nancy pelosi said the top priority for the impeachment inquiry is to sort out the facts as soon as possible. >> we have to stay focused as far as the public is concerned on the fact that the president of the united states used taxpayer dollars to shake down the leader of another country for his own political gain. the rest of it is ancillary. >> reporter: but the president won't make that easy tweeting, if that perfect phone call with
7:05 am
the president of ukraine isn't considered appropriate, then no future president can ever again speak to another foreign leader. that former special envoy to ukraine kurt volker is due to give a deposition to house investigators later this week. that's scheduled to take place on thursday. most members of congress have gone back to their districts for the autumn recess, but the leaders of this house investigation are still here. they want to move this investigation along. >> david, there is a lot of questions surrounding how the record of this phone call was stored. how did they end up on this top secret server, and now we're learning more about how this became the standard operating procedure for these kinds of calls between the president and world leaders? >> reporter: that's right, eva. multiple sources tell abc news that the white house changed the procedures and started using this classified server after earlier phone calls by the
7:06 am
president to the leaders of australia and mexico were leaked to the press. changing the procedures appeared to stop the leaking problem, but what's not known is if this was the procedure for all phone calls or just certain sensitive phone calls, and that's something that house investigators are going to really want to get to the bottom of, eva. >> david wright for us at the white house this morning, thank you. >> david and eva, thank you. so much to talk about here, so let's bring in a pair of ringers, abc news supreme court contributor kate shaw and from texas this morning abc news chief political analyst matthew dowd. good morning to both of you. kate, let me start with you. let's start with this subpoena the democrats have issued for documents from the secretary of state. what's the significance to you and is the administration likely to even comply with this because they have stonewalled in the past. >> right, so the whistle-blower complaint this week is the beginning of a process. the democrats on the hill are going to want to get access to information and testimony, so this suggests to me that they're going to move quickly and be focused in what they ask for, and i think we're all going to watch closely to see what the white house does.
7:07 am
they could fight this and take it to court and a court will look at how strong their need for the information is and what the white house says about why it wants to keep the information back. and i think an impeachment inquiry is a strong reason the house can give for needing access to this information, so i think courts are very likely to side with the house investigators. the question i think is how quickly it plays out and it could take some time. >> you were saying earlier to me off camera that there is a possibility that the white house is arguing, if they try to fight this, they would be weakened by the fact they've released so many documents up until this point. >> we had the whistle-blower complaint and dni maguire's testimony this last week. they actually could have fought both of those things association he think when you let some things out, it becomes much more difficult to fight for secrecy around other things. so i think their position going into any litigation is not that strong. >> let's go to matthew dowd now. the democrats say they're moving quickly on this impeachment process. we heard david wright talk about that. there's talk of wrapping this up before the new year. why is speed so important for them, and is speed good politically for the president as well?
7:08 am
>> well, i think speed is important for every side in this because, as you know and kate knows, this is not a conviction. this is basically the equivalent of a political indictment where they lay out the charges and then it moves to the senate which then the senate has a process, as equivalent of a trial of what the president did and what his punishment should be in this, so i think the speed is important because if it's not done this year, it needs to go to that trial as i say and the trial will be held in the senate next year, so i think the president would be better off with a speedy resolution of this this year, and i think the democrats are better off getting this done and moving it to the senate as quickly as possible. >> let's dig in on the risks for the democrats specifically. if their goal is to get rid of trump, a lot of people are asking, well, why not wait 13 months and let the american people decide in the next election. >> well, i think the problem, dan, that we have here is because this artificial creation has been made that a president can't get indicted that's been
7:09 am
created by departments of justice over the last 30 or 40 years, the only way to hold a president accountable for bad behavior or behavior that may come close to violating the law is impeachment between two elections, so over four years the only way to hold a president accountable is impeachment in this. i think if the president is impeached, it's only the third time in history, so there's risk for the democrats. this is something profoundly powerful that will affect the american public. i think the democrats have to be careful that they don't get too far in front of the american public that they get so far in front of the public that they -- the public doesn't go along with what they're doing so i think the democrats have to be methodical but understand this is an unbelievable pointed profound moment in american history. >> and the polls show the american public deeply divided as we have been for awhile now. kate, one final question to you. there's been a lot of talk about whether there's been a quid pro quo here. in other words, can the democrats prove that the president explicitly said to ukraine, you help me investigate
7:10 am
joe biden or i'm going to withhold u.s. military aid. that would violate federal bribery statutes, but your point as we were discussing earlier again off camera is that you don't have to commit a crime to be impeached. >> i think that's right, so the constitution says impeachment is for treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors, so i think because the word crime and misdemeanor are both in the constitution, there's this tendency to think, oh, a high crime, that's like a crime but a very serious one and actually high crimes and misdemeanors are actually quite different from ordinary criminal offenses. the idea has always been that this kind of high crime and misdemeanor is a political offense, an abuse of office and of public trust, so whether or not that kind of conduct violates a criminal statute is actually somewhat immaterial so i actually think it's a mistake to get too bogged down whether elements of a federal crime can be established but it does sound like that's somewhat how the conversation is playing out. >> kate shaw and matthew dowd, thank you both. whit, over to you. >> dan, thanks. the search is on for a shooter this morning who opened fire near a california high school. students running for cover when shots rang out. abc's marci gonzalez joins us
7:11 am
from our l.a. bureau with more. marci, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, whit. you're about to see just how scared some of those students were. those gunshots were so close the crowd gathered for friday night football thought they were fired right there at the school. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: the sound of gunfire causing chaos at a high school football game north of san francisco. dozens of people panicking, running from the stands. >> shooting. >> reporter: richmond police responding to reports of a fight just blocks away from de anza high school when they immediately heard those gunshots. >> there was a lot of people on scene. they all fled in different directions. >> reporter: officers finding two people, a man and a woman shot, first responders rushing them to a hospital. >> the victim is at morningside. >> reporter: police saying a third victim arrived at a hospital on his or her own. officers closing down a street across from the school as police
7:12 am
searched overnight for evidence. >> we do not know the status between the high school and the actual fight, so right now we don't know if it's linked to the school. >> reporter: and that is one of the major questions this morning as police search for the gunman and try to figure out what led to the shooting. dan. >> marci, thank you. there is aviation news this morning involving more problems for boeing. the company has notified the faa of cracks on one heavily used 737 ng aircraft, smaller cracks also reported on a few other 737 ngs. late yesterday the faa announced new inspection requirements for a number of the affected aircraft models. boeing says there have been no in-flight issues involving these cracks. a city highway is re-open this morning, but it was a scary and dangerous scene when a tanker truck exploded into a fireball. overnight a fiery inferno erupting on this major kansas city highway.
7:13 am
a tanker truck carrying gasoline and diesel burst into flames after colliding with two passenger cars. >> had about 8,500 gallons of fuel on board. >> reporter: the smoke billowing above. firefighters race to the scene desperately trying to put the fire out after using engine and ladder trucks. >> we had to come in from the outer roads and put fire trucks on the highway, get supply lines to them so we could feed them with water. >> reporter: responders pouring water and foam onto the flames from every angle backing up the interstate for hours. >> five, six of the lanes have significant spalling damage to them. >> reporter: officers even diverting drivers away from the scene during the busy rush hour commute. amazingly everyone survived. a person in one of the cars that collided with a tanker was injured but not seriously and looking at those pictures it's hard to believe it wasn't worse. >> definitely. all right, eva, thank you. we do want to transition to the latest on that nationwide spike of vaping-related illnesses. the cdc sharpening its investigation on products that contain the marijuana compound
7:14 am
thc. out of 805 confirmed and probable cases, more than 500 patients have given information about what they used. 77% reported using thc containing products. however, health officials warn the cause of those respiratory illnesses is still unknown. so let's bring in abc's chief medical correspondent dr. jennifer ashton once again. >> good morning, whit. >> thank you so much for joining us. >> yep. >> we talked about thc there, and we know that health officials across the country are investigating these illnesses. is a clear pattern starting to emerge in terms of what patients are experiencing? >> well, there is as you say still a lot unknown. we don't know if these were contaminated devices or so-called bootleg devices. we do know that the majority of them did contain thc but medically there was just a report out in the new england journal of medicine just september 6th that did a deeper dive on the cases in wisconsin and illinois and we do know that the patients presenting to the hospital with this
7:15 am
vaping-related illness that's now being called acute toxic lung injury had chest pain, shortness of breath, cough, g.i. symptoms and fever and almost 60% of them were then subsequently admitted to the intensive care unit, icu, so we're talking about serious medical issues. >> bit by bit we're starting to get more information. for people who are using these vaping products, though, even though who are using products without thc, what is the advice for them right now? >> well, listen, "the new england journal of medicine" article was very clear from a medical standpoint doctors encouraging people not to use e-cigs and the cdc echoed that. they used different terminology, asking people to consider refraining from e-cigs, particularly those containing thc so still evolving. >> important information. dr. ashton, always a pleasure. thank you. >> thanks, whit. now to a tragedy in california where a collision left an experienced skydiver dead. abc's zachary kiesch joins us with that story. good morning to you, zachary. >> reporter: well, it began as a routine skydiving run for
7:16 am
frequent patrons of a longtime parachute center. but we're learning a combination of factors including wind may have contributed to this freak accident on a california highway. this morning investigators are trying to piece together what caused an experienced skydiver to veer off course leading to a deadly crash. officials say a 28-year-old woman who had over 150 jumps under her belt was parachuting with six others 35 miles south of sacramento. >> one of the parachutists collided with the rear trailer of a big rig truck tractor combination. >> reporter: after slamming into that truck, she was thrown to the ground on highway 99 south. the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. investigators citing blunt force trauma as the cause of death. bill dause who owns the nearby parachute center where the sky dive originated says the windy weather shouldn't have been an issue. >> was it windy, yes. was it too windy, no, not for
7:17 am
her experience level. >> now, this isn't the only fatal incident for this skydiving company. "the sacramento bee" reports that at least 21 customers have died from accidents since 1981. >> all right. zachary kiesch, thank you very much. appreciate your reporting. let's switch gears and check in with robert marciano and the latest on the weather. what's going on? >> a couple things going on. first off, severe weather overnight. i want to bring you that information and video. this out of manteno, illinois. near chicago winds gusting potentially near 70 miles an hour in that area and they had an oktoberfest going on. that tent blowing over. had to cancel all the remaining activities. nobody seriously injured. good news. peoria, illinois, just down the road from flash flooding there. we had torrential rains in that area. also torrential rains across. parts of northern indiana. about six inches of rain falling just outside of south bend and they're taking on virginia this afternoon. should be dry by then but showers kind of firing along this front. that will drive to the south and
7:18 am
east, and then all eyes on this guy, potentially a historic storm. i mean we're getting some seriously cold air. for september we do get snow in this area but not this much. winter storm watches and warnings are posted for multiple states. and it's going to be a long duration snow and wind event right through tomorrow so all weekend long we could see windchills in the teens and single digits and we could see snow totals up over two, three, maybe even four feet so incredible potential snowstorm good saturday morning. waking up to a beautiful start to the weekend. although the winds will certainly play a factor in the forecast today. keeping a chill in the air. speaking of that, just in the 40s in the north bay this morning. blustery throughout the afternoon. especially at the coast. and then looking at the possibility of maybe an isolated shower in the hills for your sunday afternoon. 74 today in concord. 66 downtown. 73 in santa rosa.
7:19 am
windy today, less wind tomorroww >> it is a season for oktoberfest celebrations. i know it doesn't feel like that across much of the east especially with warm temperatures but -- >> can you tell us your favorite part of oktoberfest celebrations, rob? i'm just curious. >> the cute outfits. >> yes. >> of course. >> that's right. >> lederhosen and such. >> exactly. >> you look good in lederhosen. >> with a pumpkin spice latte. >> i thought it was some other drink other than lattes but -- >> no idea what you're talking about. >> maybe i don't know you as well as i thought. >> carry on, sir. thank you, rob. appreciate it. we do want to go to modesto, california, now and a fiery crash landing on a highway. take a look at this. a single engine plane dropping onto the southbound lanes of highway 99 catching fire and then shutting down traffic for a time. only the pilot was on board and he was not hurt. it happened just before 8:00 p.m. to georgia now. a would-be thief climbing into an suv -- look at this --
7:20 am
and trying to start the engine as thewner fills the tank apparently thinking he could get away unnoticed. the owner had a different plan. >> i took the gas nozzle, and i just started spraying him with the gas, and he eventually got out of my car. >> do not mess with her. in fact, the suspect was in such a rush to get out of the car under that deluge of gasoline that he left a shoe behind. >> yeah. >> oh, my gosh. >> look for a limping criminal. >> going to need to get that car detailed after that. >> yeah. >> the smell takes a while to get out. >> she still has the car. that's the key point. >> good point. diane macedo is with us. you have a story about a bear. >> i do, everybody, so we're going to go to california wine country where bears apparently have expensive tastes or at least this one does. this is surveillance video from navarro vin ward showing a bear sneaking a night snack on the pinot noir grapes. the owners says he's been doing it for years. but get this, the bear doesn't

nebraska, this morning is espn's maria taylor. the party is already getting started out there. >> yes, good morning, whit. as you can see, they have been out here since last night. i just talked to someone who said they started camping out at 10:00 p.m. yesterday. is the place where they've had sellouts every single home game since 1962. that's the kind of fandom we'll have here today on "college gameday." obviously something that we welcome in the college football world. >> we are already seeing some interesting signs in the background behind you there. but want to transition. the season so far, still early, but who are some of the early heisman contenders? >> we're only in week five but it's never too early to talk heisman talk. that's what everyone wants to talk about, and if we're going to talk heisman, we have to talk quarterbacks. tua tagovailoa from alabama, he's a quarterback that's already off to a great start. two straight games where he's thrown at least five touchdown passes and been very impressive completing over 70% of his passes right now,
7:47 am
and tua is one of those guys who was in new york a season ago and he has another opportunity at making it to new york and winning a heisman. he's in his junior season and i'm sure that everybody in the tide faithful hope he can make that run. then there's also a young man named jonathan taylor out of wisconsin. listen, okay, quarterbacks have won the heisman 11 out of the last 13 years but jonathan taylor is coming off a 203-yard game against michigan. he is utterly impressive. he has 24 consecutive games with at least 100 yards rushing. and if there's going to be a running back that takes that award away from all the qbs, it'll be that guy. i told you that trevor lawrence is also one to watch. they call him funshine. he plays for clemson. he struggled a little bit out of the gate. he's thrown seven touchdowns and five interceptions but i am not going to count him out of the heisman race yet. he has a lot of great playing ahead of him. one guy to watch for sure. also jalen hurts from oklahoma. i didn't add him into your video b roll but he's completing 80% of his passes and oklahoma, three of the last heisman trophy
7:48 am
winners have come from there. >> got it, and dan harris has dreams about that hair of trevor lawrence. different subject, though. let's talk about the top teams to watch right now in college football early on this season. >> well, no surprise here, one of them would have to be alabama and nick saban. remember, alabama has made every single college football playoff, so they are not new to this. they're true to it. that's what they do on a regular basis. i also have my eyes on the clemson tigers, and i have my eyes on the georgia bulldogs. now, georgia is coming off a win against notre dame. that was probably their toughest test that they're going to face. they also do have auburn in the regular season. alabama has to play auburn as well. that's going to be a tough match-up for them, but one of the things that you look at when you look at the college football playoff is whether or not teams have opportunities to have statement games and in the s.e.c., georgia is going to run into auburn. they have already beat notre dame and those are two teams you can watch. might have two teams from the same conference in the playoffs this year. >> maria taylor, looking forward to it.
