answer them. happy friday, october 11th. 5:00 a.m. in the east. we start with the stunning and dramatic airport arrest that could have links to the ukraine scandal engulfing the white house. two associates of rudy giuliani, arrested on charges they viol e violated campaign finance laws including donations they made to a trump super pac. they are soviet-born citizens. they were detained on wednesday, after the feds learned they had one-way tickets out of the country. >> giuliani told "the wall street journal", they were traveling to vienna, where giuliani was also headed. starting in november of last year, the two men helped him in the ukraine, digging up dirt on democratic candidate, joe biden. you can see the two men here in this twitter video. we don't know where or when the video was shot. but we know the three met for lunch on wednesday before the men headed to the airport. president trump denies he knows them. >> i don't know those gentlemen. it's possible i have a picture with them. i have a picture with everybody. i don't know them. i don't know what they do. maybe they were clients of rudy. you'd have to ask rudy. >> as it happens, yes, there is a photo of the president with at least one of the men. here it is. jessica schneider has more of the details here. >> reporter: the two men could be key characters in this broader ukraine impeachment inquiry. that's because of a few things. rudy giuliani has said that they helped dig up dirt in ukraine on the president's political rivals, including joe biden. also the two men introduced giuliani to former and current officials. and the indictment alleges that the two men asked for the help of a former u.s. congressman, that we learned is a texas republican, pete sessions. they asked him to help with the firing of the united states ambassador to ukraine. she was fired in may, mostly at the behest of rudy giuliani. the two men were arrested late night at dulles airport. the prosecutors had to act fast here. they did not plan to unseal the indictment on thursday. but the two men had one-way tickets. prosecutors had to act fast to unseal the indictment and make the arrest. these two men, along with others, are facing several charges, including conspiracy and false statements and funneling foreign money. they were putting money in a trump-aligned pac. the two are accused of funneling in $1 million from a russian national that they put toward other state candidates in nevada here. these men are facing charges in new york but will be held in virginia. and they are facing new congressional subpoenas. congressional investigators want to know their role in ukraine and their relationship with rudy giuliani. >>> as jessica just mentioned, the two giuliani associates were subpoenaed by house democrats in connection with their impeachment inquiry. and they were not the only ones. manu raju is on capitol hill with the details. >> reporter: subpoena after subpoena, now coming out to demand documents, as democrats try to move to wrap up this impeachment probe in the coming weeks. potentially decide whether or not to impeach this president as soon as thanksgiving. the latest information subpoena for rick perry, the energy secretary, over conversations that he had with president zelensky of ukraine and with president trump and rudy giuliani, is part of giuliani and trump's efforts to get the ukraine government to investigate joe biden. perry said he did not speak to zelensky at all about the bidens. he said it was all about energy and energy issues. but democrats have raised concerns about some of the conversations, saying this in their letter to perry, saying these reports have raised significant questions about your efforts to press ukrainian officials to change the management structure at a company to benefit officials with rudy giuliani's push to get ukrainian officials to interfere in the 2020 elections. this comes amid the subpoenas that have gone out to the white house. the white house and the office of budget. the pentagon, and giuliani and giuliani associates, including the two arrested yesterday. democrats hope to get energy. if they don't, the white house continues to deny their demands, expect that to be rolled into an article of impeachment against this president because what they say is that the president is obstructing congress from doing its job. no matter what happens here, the democrats believe they could get more evidence to go after the president and potentially more evidence on obstruction of congress. back to you. >> manu raju,

hit by two missiles. we're seeing oil prices soar. joining us to discuss the implications of this apparent attack, matt egan. happy friday. >> good morning, guys. >> never a dull friday. how do you see this affecting oil prices longer term? or is this a short-term impact? >> i'm not surprised to see the reaction from the oil market. the oil market is really sensitive to any sort of conflict that is near saudi arabia. saudi arabia is the world's most important oil producer. the biggest oil exporter. it is like the central bank of the oil market. we should know these moves are not really that dramatic. 2% move, compared to what we saw a month ago, when saudi arabia was hit by the attacks and its production was wiped out, more than half of it was wiped out. we saw prices spike by 15%. the biggest gain since 2009. prices have come back since they got production back online. and there's concerns about the global economy. but listen. we just learned the last few hours, that the situation can change rapidly in the oil market. >> absolutely. >> the whole planet, though, all eyes on the white house today. u.s./china trade talks resume. what are your expectations? >> it's so interesting. the stomack market has been livg and dying on every headline that's come out of the trade talks. it's an emotional rollercoaster. there are some signs of progress. president trump said that things are going pretty well. i think we should caution people. the odds of a sweeping agreement, seemed limited right now. there's too many obstacles before they can reach any sort of really big deal. but maybe there could be a limited deal. maybe china agrees to buy more agricultural products. maybe the united states decides not to increase tariffs. they're supposed to go up on october 15th and again on consumer goods from china in december. maybe there will be an agreement like that. but a sweeping deal doesn't look like it's in the offing just yet. >> do you see think a minideal better than an escalation. i'm not sure the u.s. economy can handle a severe escalation in this trade war. it's dealing a lot of pain to the economy, to the manufacturing sector. then, a minideal would be welcome because it's better. it would leave a lot of uncertainty with the economy and for businesses and for investors. i don't know that a minideal is going to be quite enough. >> yeah. it's not clear if the president is willing to accept a minideal. he needs a political win, not just to fuel the markets. but job openings, you're seeing this impact the job openings numbers. how so? >> obviously he wants a political win and an economic win. we've seen job openings in august. they went down to an 18-month low. they're down three-straight months. we haven't seen that since the great recession. that's important to keep an eye on. before employers, think of firing, they are slow hiring. that's why we watch the job opening numbers. the trade is having a role here. manufacturing jobs are down sharply. we need to keep an eye on that. the trade war is playing a role. >> this is the time we're watching every piece of data and every report, because we're trying to get indications whether or not we are headed for a recession or not. and we're getting mixed signals from the economy. >> we are. the fed chief, he thinks the economy is in a good place right now. but he did say, jay powell said, he thinks there's risks facing the economy. and the fed's own models are showing there are risks right now. at 35%, from the new york fed. it is suggesting that there are some risks ahead. >> 35% in the

been a league that prides itself on its players and coaches to be able to speak out openly about political and societal affairs. i wonder about the events this week and the fallout we've seen, if you would both feel differently about speaking out in that way in the future. >> excuse me. we want basketball questions only. >> this is a legitimate question. this is an event that happened during the nba. this particular question has not been answered. james? >> any other question? >> christina joins us, live from tokyo. good morning. this seemed odd because i know the nba commissioner adam silver has said publicly, to his players, look, if there's something you want to speak out about, we're okay with it. what happened here? >> yeah. it was disappointing, allison. i felt that james harden did want to reply to my question. as you saw, he was prevented from doing so. in the aftermath of that press conference, i was called by the nba. they gave me an apology and wrote up an official statement to apologize what happened, as well. this is from their chief communications director. they said, during today's houston rockets media availability, a team representative inappropriately interjected to christina mcfarlane from getting an answer to her question. and what it exposed was the utter confusion that exists in the nba as to how to handle this fallout. it's been one week, seven days, since the managing director of the rockets sent that tweet in support of hong kong. but the reality is, nothing of the players could have said could help the nba in their predictment. they are stuck between a rock and a hard place, protecting their interests in china and their core values. a source from the nba told me that the reason the press conferences are canceled in shanghai and the match between the lakers and the nets, because they were permitted -- they were permitted not to occur. they were stopped, halted, from taking those press conferences. as you say, in the last hour, we heard from the nba, there will be no press conference in the final global game, due to take place on saturday, or the remainder of the trip. they want to protect the players from being put in a difficult position. >> seems like this is quite the balancing act for the nba. christina mcfarlane, thank you very much. >> the questions won't stop. lebron james and company will have to answer at some point.

to a super pac. giuliani said starting in november of last year, the two men helped him in ukraine digging up dirt on joe biden. let's discuss with congressional reporter for "the washington post," good morning, karen. these two arrested with one-way tickets to vienna. this is a cross between scooby doo and "spies like us" and then, this cover. "the three stooges" from "the new york daily news." how significant is this? when it comes to the inquiry and ukraine? >> it's fairly significant. these individuals are shown to be connected to people beyond giuliani. then, it's extremely significant. we know that giuliani was involved in various state department officials. and president trump, as well. advice on ukraine and they are pushing in this impeachment inquiry. the question of whether they were part of the quid pro quo, to withhold anything from milita military aid to diplomatic meetings with ukrainians until they looked at the energy company that employed joe biden's son for a while. this is a step that reads like a movie script in a way. it indicates the speed that this is moving. the scrutiny from congress and not just from a partisan perspective, but from federal prosecutors who are serve iing under who the president appoi appointed. that's a significant step on the gravity of this. this is a charge that involves the former congress mman. >> i was going to ask about your article here in "the washington post." you write about the political appointees overriding career staffers when it comes to the aid that was frozen to ukraine. can you talk to me about when the aid was frozen in relation to the call that president trump made to the ukraine president? and who froze it? >> that article focuses more on the office of management and budget. we knew previously, an order had come from the president to freeze and hold up ukraine's aid on jewel uly 18th. that's a week before the president and ukrainian president spoke in that phone call that has formed the centerpiece of what spurred democrats to move into this impeachment inquiry. they believe what they've seen in that transcript, is the implied quid pro quo, given that president trump asked the ukrainian president for a favor, when he brings up the question of aid. what this article adds to that, it shows there was a political official in charge of these decisions, that being michael duffy. he was signing off on the letter. and it goes to show that, you know, this is not standard practice. there were concerns from state officials, department officials, from capitol hill, because they were in the dark and being told there were short-term holds on this. the fact this was being orchestrated or directed by a political appointee raises questions about why it objects registered. >> the former ukraine envoy is expected to testify. you think the white house will stop her?

>> no. because, you know, i don't know how -- again, you know, when you hear the word heart attack, you're thinking somebody lying on the ground, in terrible pain. that wasn't the case. okay? the day i woke up, after the procedure, no pain. zero pain. no pain right now. i feel really good. you know, my feeling was, once i assess the situation and learned what happened, given that my whole life struggled -- i don't mean to be, you know, overly dramatic here. but i spent my entire life trying to fight for justice. we struggled really hard to get to where we are right now, bring millions of people together in the fight for justice. and i'm not a quitter. >> you can see more of dr dr. gupta's interview with bernie sanders this morning on "new day." >>> get ready for what could be the make-or-break moment, the fourth presidential debate will be live from the state of ohio. the cnn and "new york times" presidential debate, tuesday night, 8:00 eastern time. >>> let's check on cnn business. let's look at markets around the world. asian markets closed higher. green arrows in european markets. on wall street, futures look like we could have a positive open to start friday morning. stocks closed higher on thursday. we saw a rally on hopes for a u.s./china trade deal. the dow finishes 151 points higher. the s&p 500, the nasdaq, ending the day in the green, as well. investors will be paying close attention to the second day of trade talks. president trump says he will meet with the chinese vice premier today. >>> amazon debuted a new website explaining its views on a number of hot-button issues its faced criticism for. the positions page, as it's called, includes issues like minimum wage, climate change and the rights of lgbtq people. amazon was criticized by's own employees by its practices. and several presidential candidates claims the company does not pay taxes. it's faced repeated attacks from president trump. amazon says while our positions are carefully considered and deeply held, there is much room for healthy debate and differing opinions. >>> nestle leaning into the plant-paced craze with two vegan alternatives. the company says it will begin selling vegan bacon and cheddar cheese to its food clients next year. it has a plant-based patty called the awesome burger. with the three new products, nestle is trying to create a space for itself in the rapidly expanding plant-based food market. restaurants like dunkin' and mcdonald's have begun selling unite items that feature plant-based alternatives. but those aren't fully vegan. also not fully vegan, bagels to wish dave a happy birthday. >> i'll take a birthday bagel. i have never had a birthday bagel in 43 years. you have cream cheese?
