To investigate your by president profits now looking to uncover the identity of the whistle blower who triggered the impeachment investigation. Meanwhile the president's personal attorney and you're Rudy Giuliani has now been subpoenaed by house lawmakers. Number to build world of college athletics is buzzing about a landmark new California law that. The fair pay to play act opens the door to endorsement deals for college athletes also allows them to be paid for. Use of their names and images without losing their amateur status the law takes effect in 20/20 three the NCAA says the measure will destroy this distinction between amateurs and both. And it is considering its next move. No word yet though at those steps will include legal action on to number three California man is charged with spying for China after an elaborate FBI sting operation prosecutors say Edward Payne was posing as a tour guide and have Francisco went he collected US national security information he allegedly picked up digital memory card left at hotels and California and Georgia. And then delivered those cards to Beijing after paying off an important thing is due in court tomorrow he could face ten years in prison if convicted. We head to Hong Kong for number four it. Tens of thousands of anti government protesters. I've taken to the streets defying orders to stay home police scuffled with demonstrators during one outbreak of violence earlier today. The protest comes as China today celebrate seventy years of Communist. More there was. There was a show of force in Beijing today the Chinese military showed off its most advanced weapons including a new hypersonic ballistic nuclear missile. Designed to you've made America's anti missile shields. And finally number five adults in the US are apparently not making the grade when it comes to reading. A new survey finds more than a quarter of adults had not read a book in the past jeering not even part of a buck. In either print or electronic point 27% of adults say they have not read any books in the past twelve months up from 19%. The 2011. We've got much more to talk about coming your way. Read a book America. We say good morning on the first of October let's get right the big sort of new details overnight from the impeachment investigation. As president compasses to learn the name of the whistle blower in the Ukraine scandal. ABC news has now confirmed that secretary of state Mike hunt pale was on the phone call when president trump urged the leader of Ukraine to investigate you bite and. Meanwhile house Democrats have now subpoenaed Rudy Giuliani the president's personal attorney let's get right to ABC's are in a Marshall who's in Washington with the latest Serena good morning. Kent Elizabeth good morning to both the view in the White House nor the president have yet pinpoint what exactly in the whistle blower complaint about that phone call was an accurate the president simply maintaining the. The call was perfect. In our new twist secretary of state Mike Pompeo also line that controversial phone call with the president and the president of Ukraine multiple sources told ABC news. One week ago when he was asked about that call what do you know. Those conversations. So you just gave me a report about it IC was a book open and none none of which have seen. That revelation has the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani received subpoenas from three separate house committees. In a statement Giuliani said it raises substantial constitutional and legal issues. As Weld's attorney client and other privileges. But Sunday he seemed to imply his efforts to push you weren't investing ideas where the cast of the US government's it was I don't do this on my own. I did it at the request of the State Department. As for the president he's not backing down on his quest to ID the whistle blowers. If and whistle. Reports things that were incorrect. That some than the whistle blowers attorney says would be against federal law. The president has repeatedly claimed because information was reported second hand he was not to be believed. But we have now learned at the whistle blower had direct knowledge of search and alleged conduct according to the intelligence community's inspector general. This statement part of a rebuke to the president's claim the whistle blow rules were changed up borderless a minute. The statement explaining there was never a rule or law does that information could not be reported secondhand. House Democrats really in the investigation say they don't have a tentative deal to meet with the whistle blower as the senate majority leader Mitch McConnell says. If the house were to vote for an impeachment the senate would have no choice but to take it up Kenneth Elizabeth. Three let's talk about this week from the president according to supporters that impeaching and removing him from office wall quote cause the civil war like. Fracture in this country in this nation from which our country will never heal that brought a rare review from a Republican. Yeah I can add that this these Republicans haven't been superb vocal speaking out against the president especially when it comes to this will Butler come place but that review of over that tweet came from a Republican congressman from Illinois that trend seems atom can injure and he said. I visited nations ravaged by civil war I had never imagined such a could to be repeated by a president. This is beyond repugnant as strong words of from a Republican and that act against the president's tweet there. Strong words indeed Serena thank you. Now when it comes to the American public 52% of registered voters say they support the impeachment inquiry I'm 45%. Are against it. And that's same quinnipiac poll it was split 47% say the president should be impeached and removed M 47%. Say he should not. And we are now learning the president asked other foreign powers to help attorney general William Barr as he reviews the origins of that Russia investigation here's ABC's Brett Nokia. And that's right you know in that rough transcript of president trumpet the leader of Ukraine. There's this moment we're president trump says you should speak to my personal attorney and. The attorney general what we've now learned. The president companies dropped William Barr's name with a number of world leaders an official at the Justice Department tells ABC news that just a few weeks ago. President trump told the leaders of Australia and Italy. If he's trying to learn how the Russian investigation started in the first place. And that they should help William Barr investigated. I spoke to ABC's senior national correspondent Terry Moran. He told the key question here is whether bar is acting as America's top prosecutor or this president Trump's private die. I think you can make a case that this is the president operating in the national interest thing no president should ever go through this what happened how does the intelligence community working. To generate such a false story that would be the president's perspective. The odd thing is. That the entire Justice Department can do this and in fact there's a US turning has been assigned by attorney general Barr to do this investigate why attorney general flying around the world. A during the president's bidding like this it's unbecoming perhaps but it they will make the case that it's a legitimate inquiry. And you remember a couple weeks ago attorney general Barr was in Italy to DOJ would not explain why. Well now we know debt busy included discussions. About this project regarding the Russian investigation we'll have a lot more and start here later this morning listen on apple podcasts or if ever podcasting app. Kenneth lists. Brad think you and former national security about the John Bolton is speaking out against president comes approach to North Korea. In his first public comments since you without the from his position bull criticize the president without mentioning him by name. Saying talks with Kim Jung and had only benefited North Korea and he warned that Jim has no plans to. The strategic decision. That Kim Jung on his operating. Through. Is that he will do what ever he can to keep. A deliverable nuclear weapons capability and to develop and enhance that further under current circumstances he will never give up. The nuclear weapons voluntarily. Bolton said the US needs to focus its attention on stopping nuclear proliferation. On the Korean Peninsula. But the president's approach have not resulted in any gains Republican congressman Chris Collins of New York is resigning and ahead of an expected guilty plea in insider trading case. Collins was one of president jumps earliest supporters in congress he won reelection Gloucester even after he was accused of sharing inside information from a Biotech company. Collins served on the company's board of directors. In his son dumped their stocks before they taint. A boarding hundreds or thousands of dollars in losses. The recent arrest of 26 year old and Orlando Florida results an officer being fired but it also drew attention to a stunning crime statistic the FBI reports that child arrests may be more common than you might think the bureau found that between 2013 and 2017 nearly 27000. Children under the age of ten. Were arrested in the US an organization that trains law enforcement agencies and how to handle young children calls that number of arrests ridiculous. A 48 year old man is fighting for his life after falling into a thermal pool out the old faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park a park official says the man was walking near the guys are late Sunday night without a flashlight when he tripped into a hot spring. He suffers severe burns and is listed in critical condition park ranger suspected the victim had been drinking. They later found issue hat and a beer can your old faithful the man could face charges for entering a restricted area of Yellowstone. Police say that. Fatal shooting of an NYPD officer was caused by friendly fire officer Brian mall Kean and the armed suspect. We're nonviolent struggle when responding officers fired in their direction. Investigators now say the two bullets that killed the seven year member of the force were fired by NYPD weapons the suspect was shot and killed by police. Today marks two years as the Las Vegas concert a massacre of fifty people were killed and hundreds wounded when a gunman opened fire from this week. At the Mandalay bay resort the victims will be honored today with the events and memorials across the Las Vegas area. A sunrise ceremony which will include PP eight seconds of silence is among the planned events. A desperate search for survivors and going on right now after a bridge collapse in Taiwan the collapse sent an oil tanker on to the boats that were in the water below. At least six people were believed to be trapped on one of those votes ten people were hospitalized. Several of them with. Serious injuries the collapse happened in just hours after I typhoons swept across parts of Taiwan and right now though it's unclear if that storm. With part of the reason for the bridge coming down and the start of October also marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The disease is the most common cancer in women and affects one out of every eight women in the US it also strikes a very small percentage of men. Experts emphasize early detection is key to beating the disease and this month you will see a lot of people wearing pink to show of support. And coming up to the thousands are taking to the streets in Hong Kong. The city bracing for violence is China celebrate seventy years of Communist rule the first California's governor signing a law that would allow top college athletes to be paid. After that's. Welcome back we turn out to be potential game changer in college sports a new law in California would allow student athletes to sign endorsement deals and hire agents the law to fight a longstanding rule that bans college players from getting paid even as. Universities bring in billions of dollars in revenue. A possible didn't changer in the big business of college sports. This is one of the most significant days in the history. Of intercollegiate athletics college athletes bring in billions of dollars for universities but Dayton never seen a Kenya Witt. NCAA rules do not allow athletes to be paid young to prop up attending the university through scholarships. But now California governor Gavin Newsom has sight of so called fear paying for plane mall while appearing on LeBron James HBO show uninterrupted. Not once did they talk about the needs of these kids what they even listen to you your will they listen to the Illinois after assignment. The new law he does not mean players will be directly paid from the universities it means college athlete ain't California. Could high your agent get shoe deals or other endorsement. And get paid for a signing autographs or memorabilia the debate over Paine College athletes has got more heated in recent years with athletes like NBA star dream on green. Arguing that colleges have capitalized off your talent robots so don't tell us simply will be ripped off it's obvious in his college please bear ripped off. The NCAA admits that improvement needs to happen but is this same thing its business model saying. This new law already is creating confusion for current and future student athletes coaches administrators and campus is. And not just in California. The billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban is speaking out against the California law saying it turns athlete in two employees. When it comes to playing in pain players as employees. And you have to ask yourself what did they get fired. You know what happens if you want to fire do we want to start firing student athletes critics also say the law would give California schools and unfair of recruiting advantage. But analysts predict other ski both student follows Steve. For the first time someone is fighting back someone is saying to the NCAA you can't rule college athletics in the same tired hackneyed way. The law doesn't take effect until 20/20 three the NCAA says it is considering next steps but nowhere jet if those steps will include legal action. So that's our question of the day what do you think about college Athens potentially being allowed to be paid for endorsements. Tell us in the comments or tweet us at ABC news live let us that we think a lot of people are some strong feelings over this. We sell it Mark Cuban he's got a comment on this but still. I can't even had a guy on our ABC news FaceBook site account. And they learn how well. I wary knowing he thinks let. There what are you guys think because quadruples that athletes obviously when you're using her likeness and all of those things. Should be paid happily get the opportunity is there so. I think schools making billions off of these kids right from kids but I guess yeah Madonna the last with the big kids.
