tornado unless you are a professional. stay safe. >> thanks for watching. the next local update good morning to you and our viewers in the west. this is "cbs news this morning." i'm gayle king with anthony mason and tony dokoupil. questioning the whistleblower. president trump demands to meet his accuser as democrats move forward on impeachment hearings and subpoenas. what our new poll shows about the cup's reaction. breaking news in the prisoner manhunt. how police capture several extremely dangerous inmates, and who is still on the run. officer murder trial. testimony ends in the case of a former dallas cop who shot her neighbor. why today will be a critical day in the trial. and what's in your cbd? what we found when we tested popular products in a lab. it's monday, september 30th,
7:01 am
2019. here's today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> do you expect the testimony of the whistleblower? >> absolutely. >> the president says he deserves to meet his accuser. >> the president is the whistleblower. the president of the united states is the whistleblower. and this individual is a saboteur. 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. three of the four inmates who escaped an ohio prison have been captured in north carolina. the last inmate is still on the loose. >> we continue to use every asset at our disposal. chaos in hong kong. pro-democracy demonstrators hit the streets ahead of china's national day. montana's gave has declared a winter storm emergency amid record snowfall in september. all that -- >> caught on camera, a dramatic oil thanker explosion in south

7:04 am
of the impeachment inquiry. 58% say the president doesn't serve to be impeached or it's too early to say. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. what are the next steps in this investigation in the house? >> reporter: good morning. thrive got multiple depositions scheduled over the next couple of weeks. they have subpoenaed documents from the secretary of state that they're expected to get by the end of this week. and democratic leaders say there could be more subpoenas and hearings scheduled, even though technically congress is at the start of a two-week break. >> could not ignore what the president did. he gave us no choice. >> reporter: in an interview with scott pelley on "60 minutes," house speaker nancy pelosi said she spoke to president trump about his now-infamous call with the president of ukraine. >> he told you about the phone call? >> he told me it was perfect. there was nothing in the call. but i know what was in the call. i mean, it was in the public domain.
7:05 am
he didn't even know that it was wrong. he's saying it's perfect, there was nothing wrong. no, it is wrong. >> reporter: a summary shows the president asked his ukrainian counterpart to look into an unproven theory about a democratic national committee computer server and into unsubstantiated corruption claims about joe biden and his son. an intelligence committee whistleblower wrote in a memo that white house officials were "deeply disturbed." >> your committee already has an agreement with the whistleblower that he will testify. >> we have agreement that he or she will testify, yes. >> reporter: house intelligence committee chairman adam schiff said his committee will subpoena information from the president's personal lawyer, rudy giuliani. the whistleblower's complaint alleges giuliani repeatedly urged ukrainian officials to investigate biden. >> we're going to need evidence from rudy giuliani, and it's our intention as soon as first thing next week to subpoena him for documents.
7:06 am
and there may well come a time where we want to hear from him directly. >> reporter: giuliani denies any wrongdoing and only one house republican, nevada's mark amodei, announced support for the appointment inquiry. >> when i read the transcript, i see two leaders having admiration, not intimidation. >> reporter: house minority leader kevin mccarthy insisted there was no impeachable behavior in that phone call. >> you say the president has done nothing wrong. i take that to mean that you find it appropriate that the president asked mr. zelensky for an investigation of his democratic rivals. >> the question before the house of representatives is to impeach the president based upon a phone call that the speaker never even heard. >> reporter: lawyers for the whistleblower dispute chairman schiff's claim that an agreement
7:07 am
has been reached for the whistleblower to testify. they say that details are still being worked out, and that no date or time has been set yet. tony? >> nancy, thank you. the whistleblower's attorney also says he fears for his client's safety because of some of the reaction to the report. paula reid is at the white house. how is the president handling this? >> reporter: well, good morning. the president says he deserves to meet the whistleblower, but there is no right to confront your accuser in an impeachment inquiry. this is not a court of law. this is a political process. that's why over the weekend we saw the president's advisers taking their case to the court of public opinion. >> this individual is a saboteur trying to undermine a democratically elected government. >> reporter: the president's allies appeared on the sunday political shows to attack the whistleblower who set off an impeachment inquiry. >> there were a lot of things in the report that are concerning in terms of allegations that
7:08 am
were very partisan. >> reporter: they continue to dismiss the allegations as secondhand knowledge, even though most of the details are corroborated by a partial record of the call released by the white house. >> i think this whole thing is a sham. i can't believe we're talking about impeaching the president based on an accusation based on hearsay. who is this whistleblower? >> reporter: president trump appeared to make a veiled threat against the intelligence official tweeting, "i want to meet not only my accuser but also the person who illegally gave this information." adding, "was this person spying on the u.s. president in r big consequences -- president? big consequences." >> i believe tthe whistleblower and the inspector general have acted in good faith throughout. >> reporter: in a letter to acting intelligence chief joseph maguire, an attorney for the whistleblower voiced serious concerns for his client's personal safety citing those comments by president trump at a private event last week. >> you know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart, right, for spies and
7:09 am
treason. woe used to handle them differently than we do now. >> reporter: the attorney indicated a $50,000 bounty has been issued for information relating to his client's identity. >> biden played a role in getting these collusion allegations covered up. >> reporter: the adviser cannot answer questions about why giuliani was reaching out to ukraine and not u.s. law enforcement. >> if these charges are so serious and credible, why have they not been picked up by the president's handpicked fbi director, the handpicked attorney general william barr -- >> i don't know if they have or haven't. >> reporter: the president said he would have giuliani or barr reach out. the attorney was surprised and angry to be lump friday with giuliani as it suggests that the
7:10 am
president's personal attorney and the top law enforcement official have the same role. gayle? >> so many layers. thank you so much, paula. roxanna has been digging into the in kiev. we heard you have new information on the content of the talks. what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, good morning, gayle. ukraine's president said this morning he will not be releasing the transcript of his july 25th phone call with president trump. a former adviser to ukraine's president said it was a well-known fact the president was looking for information on joe biden and that ukraine's president knew that u.s. aid to his country was at stake. >> i'm sre that issue of biden was forever on the table between zelensky and trump. >> reporter: the former lawmaker and adviser to ukraine's president zelensky, he believes it the clear that president trump wanted ukraine to investigate his democratic rivals. >> of course he wanted political privileges, favors for his re-election from ukraine. >> reporter: in return for military aid? >> i would say yes. >> reporter: do you have any evidence of that?
7:11 am
>> it was like well-known fact in ukraine. >> reporter: in 2016, leschenko was at the center of exposing paul manafort's deal flgs ukraine. he said he recused himself after it became clear it could threaten relations with the trump administration. ukraine relies heavily on u.s. aid in its war against russia. in july, trump ordered nearly $400 million of that support withheld. days later in a phone call, he asked ukraine's president to investigate the bidens. according to the whistleblower's complaint, mr. trump's personal lawyer, rudy giuliani, made or attempted contact with at least seven ukrainian officials including then-prosecutor general yuriy lutsenko. he said giuliani told him to investigate the bidens. >> have you got any evidence that joe biden acted in any way which supported hunter biden's company? >> it is not by jurisdiction. >> reporter: under ukrainian law
7:12 am
you've got nothing? >> nothing. certainly. >> reporter: he said the two were circumventing official channels. he told us giuliani also tried to set up a meeting with president-elect zelensky, but he said no because he realized everything where -- everything about the story was toxic. >> thank you so much. on "60 minutes," saudi arabia's de facto leader gave his first tv interview since the murder of a "washington post"

"cbs evening news" anchor and managing editor norah o'donnell spoke with crown prince mohammed bin salman. the cia. believes he was behind the -- the cia. believes he was behind the killing of critic and columnist jamal khashoggi in istanbul. >> reporter: did you order the murder of jamal khashoggi? >> translator: absolutely not. this was a heinous crime, but i take full responsibility as the leader in saudi arabia, especially since it was committed by individuals working for the saudi government. >> reporter: the cia has concluded with medium to high confidence that you personally targeted khashoggi and you probably ordered his death. >> translator: i hope this information to be brought forward, if there is any such information that charges me, i hope it is brought forward publicly. >> reporter: what kind of threat a newspaper columnist to the kingdom of saudi arabia that he would deserve to be brutally murdered? >> translator: there is no threat from any journalist. the heinous crime that took place in a saudi consulate. >> khashoggi's body has not been found. violence in hong kong is expected to escalate as china celebrates its 70th anniversary of communist rule tomorrow.

welcome aboard. ♪ feed your head cbd products have skyrocketed in popularity and seem to be for sale everywhere from grocery stores to coffee shops and gas stations. cbd is a compound found in marijuana, but it does not get you high. advocates say it can help with anything from muscle aches to anxiety. and it's forecast to become a $22 billion industry by 2024. but without wide federal oversight, there is no way of really knowing what's inside cbd, so we decided to find out. barry petersen is here with results. barry, you look like a traveling salesman. >> yes, i come with free samples. we wanted to find out what was
7:39 am
really inside the bottle. so, we partnered with mile high labs in colorado to test these nine samples of cbd that we purchased from around the country. the results might surprise you. it took two days for senior lab assistant joshua cogell to test our nine samples. checking for cbd and thc the ingredient in marijuana that gives a high and also for dangerous impurities like pesticides and heavy metals. >> mile high labs we test for four heavy metals -- mercury, arsenic, cadmium and lead. >> those sound bad? >> yes, you do not want those in your body. >> reporter: the cbd craze kicked off last september. that allows farms to grow hemp, the source of cbd. it is a member of the marijuana family, but it produces only trace amounts of thc. under the bill, the government allows less than 0.3% thc in cbd
7:40 am
products. here's what mile high found in our samples. none had pesticides or heavy metals above federal standards. the thc levels were all within federal guidelines, but when it came to dosages advertised on the label, watch out. four samples were pretty much right on. two samples cheated you, giving you only 60% to 80% of the advertised dosage. and then there were the overperformers. 1,000 milligram supply was really 1,100, 10% higher. and one was way over. 210% of what the label said. >> this last sample claimed 500 milligrams in the bottle. and we measured 210%. in the bottle. >> reporter: holy mackerel. >> yeah. >> so that's really concerning to me. >> reporter: steve mueller founded mile high lab in
7:41 am
loveland, colorado, and is the ceo. >> we believe strong action will improve it. >> reporter: he testified at fda hearings arguing for federal regulations to ensure accuracy in labeling. >> right now there's no one enforcing any of those things. it's sort of up to the companies to do it themselves. some of the -- >> reporter: it really is the wild west. you just -- whatever you say is what ends up on the label is what people think they're buying. >> yeah. you can see that from the results here that it is the wild west and what you get on the shelf is -- you don't really know. >> reporter: to find out if what we don't know can hurt us, we went to the emergency room at uc health-university of colorado hospital. >> we know it has some medical benefits. >> reporter: where i met dr. andrew monte, a toxicologist and emergency medicine physician who has treated people who have ingested too much cbd. >> patients can become more sominal than expected. they can become very sleepy.
7:42 am

grood -- good morning to our viewers in the west. i'm gayle king with tony dokoupil and anthony mason. ahead, what house democrats are doing next in the impeachment inquiry while republicans defend the president. plus what olivia newt ton june is giving up as she fights cancer for the third time. first here's today eye opener at 8. president trump and his republican allies are fighting the democrats push toward impeachment in targeting the whistle-blower in his case.
8:01 am
>> they've got multiple depositions scheduled this week and next. they have subpoenaed documents from the secretary of state. president trump tweeting a suggestion that intelligence pcommittee chairman adam schiff could be arrested for treason. former adviser to ukraine's president told us it was a well known fact president trump was looking for compromising information on joe biden. demonstrators stormed the business district raising anger against beijing. it finally stopped snowing but they're used to extreme weather in montana. they're not used to getting this much snow this early, though. inmates escaped out of a county jail and overpowered two female correction officers. and cracks one deep right center. back toward the wall! it's out of here! doug smith back from the injured list. his first at bat in two months and he hits a walk-off home run in the season's final game!
8:02 am
the never say die mets finish the season on an incredible note! >> this morning's eye epopener presented by at&t. let's go places. >> i think baseball announcer guys live for that moment. it's out of here! >> was that the new york mets celebrating? >> it was. i'm not sure what they're celebrating, because they're not in the playoffs, but it was a nice ending. welcome back to cbs this morning. we're going to begin with this. president trump says he deserves to meet the whistle-blower who reported his alleged wrongdoing as house democrats step up their investigation of that whistle-blower's complaint. house intelligence committee chairman adam schiff told "60 minutes" they plan to subpoena rudy giuliani for documents related to ukraine as early as today. giuliani pushed ukraine to investigate joe biden and his son hunter. schiff also says there is an agreement for the whistle-blower to testify but his lawyer disputes that. >> house leaders made their case
8:03 am
for and against impeachment on "60 minutes" last night. >> we could not ignore what the president did. he gave us no choice. it wasn't any change of mind. i always said we will follow the facts where they take us. >> the president did nothing in this phone call that's impeachable. the question before the house of representatives is to impeach the president based upon a phone call that the speaker never even heard. >> reporter: the inspector general who found the whistle-blower complaint to be credible will reportedly speak with the house intelligence committee behind closed doors on friday. that's the same day secretary of state mike pompeo is supposed to turnover documents related to the president's communications with ukraine. >> jonathan turley is with us. he testified before congress in 1998. president bill clinton could be impeached for lying under oath. good morning, jonathan. thanks for being here. you just heard the congressman saying the president did nothing impeachable and that the evidence is hearsay.
8:04 am
>> first of all, you can bring in hearsay evidence in impeachment process. you can bring it in in the trial itself. also, if this is proven, this is a clear impeachable offense. this could be self-healing using public office to your own political and personal advantage. you is have to prove it. >> what are the democrats missing at this point? >> a quid. the fact is that the transcript does not do it. people say you don't have to show he made this connection. >> connection to military aid, almost $400 million. >> you really do. if you're going to take down a president, you're going to need to show he made that linkage. i've got $400 on the table and this is what i want. he falls short of that. this is a president that has a curious ability to rest on the line of criminality. it's a place most presidents avoid. >> some would say he knows exactly what he's doing. if you're looking for the evidence and you're the democrats, what power do the
8:05 am
committees have to investigate? >> this is really sort of turbo charging congressional investigative powers. once you're in impeachment, the courts continued to defer to congress. they did that in the nixon case. the supreme court said there is executive privilege but we're not going to let you use it. if there is an allegation of criminal acts or an impeachable offense, the courts tend to defer to the process. in this case it could be both. this could be a criminal act. peachable offense.y could be an you just have to prove it. >> you really do have to dot the is and cross all your ts. last night nancy pelosi told scott pelley the white house needs to speak the truth. is there anything the white house can do to stop this inquiry do you think? they seem to be try. >> they seem to be trying but not very well. i think that they are going to have to try to separate that quid from the pro quo. they're going to have to bring people out to say there are other reasons we held that money. they're having trouble sticking that landing.
8:06 am
if they don't have a case to make so far that the president had objective reasons for doing this. the biggest concern they have, the torpedo in the water is that somebody comes forward and makes that connection and says the president made it clear this money is not getting to the ukraine until i get this. if they have a witness that says that, you're off to the races. >> does it matter, though, that we keep hearing the whistle-blower and we don't know she or he, but we've been told they have a political bias. does that matter here? >> it can. the trial is pretty much wide open. when i did the last one, i was astonished. senators would say i would raise objections under the rules of evidence and they said we're not bound by that. >> the house votes to impeach but it goes to the senate where there is a trial. does mitch mcconnell have an obligation to bring it to a trial form or can he table it? >> he has an obligation to bring it. we've never had a case where the president is impeached where the
8:07 am
senate did not hold a trial. keep in mind they set the rules and the majority under rule 20 can actually overrule the previedi presiding judge. they can give trump the trial he wants. don't forget, this could be the trial he wants. >> why? >> because he could -- one of the only ways to really take down donald trump may be to beat him with a livelefeless body of biden. >> because you think there's concern of what hunter biden may have done? >> i don't think many people buy that joe biden had the prosecutor of ukraine fired to protect his son. i don't think the evidence supports that. but you're still left with a very disturbing contract with hunter biden. it does look like an effort to influence his father. it's not going to look good in the bright lights of a senate trial. trying to take down trump could do damage to biden and trump could survive. that's the nightmare of nancy
8:08 am
pelosi. >> duathere's so many layers to this case. is either side ahead at this point? there's more to come. >> i think all the winds are at the back of the house democrats. they're building the case and this is a real impeachment case. >> always good to have you in the studio. we have breaking news from east africa where a u.s. military base was attacked this morning. the attacker set off two car bombs and fired shots outside an airstrip in southern somalia. the terror group has claimed responsibility. u.s. military uses that airstrip to launch drone attacks against. another suicide car bomber attacked a peace keeping convoy. there are no reports so far of any u.s. or i good monday morning to you. temperatures are in the upper 30s, 40s, and low 50s.
