attorney general william barr reportedly did the same. the united kingdom and italy if true this would be unprecedented u.s. officials asking allies to help them investigate u.s. intelligence agencies and the congressional investigation into the ukrainian controversy is speeding ahead on monday new subpoenas for trump's confidant rudy giuliani's documents and his dealings with ukraine giuliani responded saying he might testify but is still claiming he is trump's lawyer which could imply attorney client privilege but analyst jeff hauser says giuliani has publicly said something very different rudy giuliani has said that he has not actually trumped personal attorney is doing essentially emissary work on behalf of trump as an individual on the trump campaign and that does not provide any sort of privilege which would protect his documents from going to congress the president has been taking to
6:03 am
twitter and to the cameras to pronounce he's done nothing wrong the response from democrats in congress will find out and fast political again al jazeera washington . and we can now go live sound to thomas who is in sydney for us so andrew what's been the reaction there in australia. we haven't heard anything yet to hear from us from his prime minister himself but a spokesperson for the australian government essentially said that this was all we're insane that australia's government has always been ready to assist and cooperate with efforts that help shed the light on the nazi is under investigation and the prime minister scott morrison confirmed this readiness once again in a conversation with the president will australia's government also did is published a lets up that australia's ambassador to the us wrote to the trumpet ministration back in may he saying at that time when trumpet said publicly that he wanted an
6:04 am
investigation into the best a geisha and that joe hockey australia's ambassador had sent less than saying that australia stood ready to help with that investigation at all stop morris and they in that bunker with donald trump at the beginning of september was can that will and surprisingly perhaps australia's opposition party doesn't see it the same way anthony albanese the labor politician you want to take stock morrison's job in the next election he says that this is all very murky and shows a much too close relationship between the us president and australia's prime minister a political relationship one that goes way beyond too friendly countries he said about an hour ago now his assistance is in discredit saying investigation so he sees this as a political investigation by don't trump not merely a legal investigation in the scott morrison should be distancing himself from what is essentially a domestic political issue a way to beat the labor party here with morrison was much too close to us president still morrison was in the us on a state visit last week one state he was on stage with the us president what looked
6:05 am
like a campaign rally in ohio so already a lot of disquiet here in australia that scott morrison is much too close to the trunk and this only feeds into that. the inquiry inquiry has to do with russian and to ference into the 2016 election so why is this cheney being asked about it. good question well in a sense it all began with an australian diplomat alex to down a list alexander downer who was a former foreign minister of australia but by 2016 was a strain is essentially ambassador he was the high commissioner to the united kingdom he was in london and got invited to a meeting at a wine ball with george puppet openness so at the time was working on the trump campaign trump hadn't won the nomination of the republican party but he was close to it and over drinks in this london wine bar papadopoulos said to alex on the down but he expects a trump to win the election in part because he knew the russians had some on
6:06 am
hillary clinton and that they were likely to leak that during the campaign well alice alexander downer thought this very interesting information he put it back so you can and camber in turn felt that it was worthy of telling the f.b.i. about this information and all of that leds so another investigation under trump's presidency so in a sense that of us today she wouldn't have happened without initial conversation in that one bar in london and that conversation eventually making its way back to the f.b.i. well george puppet of us in spain twits up early on tuesday really rubbishing alexander downer in saying this is his chickens coming home to roost he thinks alexander downer was a spy essentially for the clinton campaign and he thinks this is all going to lead to that thank you very much to thomas in sydney for us. celebrations have begun and china marking 70 years since the communist party to power large parades are being held in beijing they're aimed at reflecting the
6:07 am
country's increase to wealth and a military strength. meanwhile hong kong is braced for several mass rallies as china celebrates national day members of the pro-democracy group the league of social democrats gathered in one china that's one of 6 districts where protests are planned throughout the day 8 metro stations are closed and dozens of shopping malls shut their doors over fears that those protests may turn violent. we have 2 correspondents one in hong kong and in beijing scott huyler's standing by in hong kong but 1st let's go to rob matheson who's in beijing for us we heard president xi jinping speak any references to the challenges that lie ahead . but it was very much a rallying call david which was no it's really unexpected he's been making a very similar speech for months now i'm one of the concerns that the party has had is the changing nature of china's economy and he mentioned this in the speech will
6:08 am
come to hong kong in a 2nd but in terms of the economy he said that china would continue to satisfy the people's needs for a better life and the reason that i'm mentioning that is because china's economy in the foot at the start of this year actually started to slow down a little bit about 6.2 percent now but actually seems quite a lot some countries would be delighted to have anything over 6 percent expansion in the economy but people in china are getting very used to having money in their pockets and he knows that his government and his leadership is going to be judged by the chinese people and how he handles the economy but of course yes he did refer to. the situation in hong kong not specifically but he did give some reference to the one country 2 systems part here's what he had to say. we have to maintain the peaceful united one country 2 systems principle to keep
6:09 am
hong kong and macau long term prosperity and stability and to push the relationship on each side to develop peacefully and we will keep realizing and keep working hard to realize the peaceful unification of china. now there is no question that this situation in hong kong is an embarrassment both to president xi and to the chinese government this is exactly the kind of distraction they did not want when the 70th anniversary celebrations were taking place but also it's interesting that he is reaffirming china's commitment to maintaining this one country 2 systems plan one which is also clickable to the china special. administrative region of macau but also perhaps sending a message to taiwan which china believes firmly should be part of china china taiwan is resisting all china's overtures to that effect but to partly because it is watching what's been going on in hong kong perhaps this was president xi trying
6:10 am
to stress the fact that china will stand by this process and at one point he did say that he was determined to follow the path of greater autonomy for these regions . rob matheson in beijing for us we can now go to hong kong that's where scott standing by so scott i don't suppose the protesters were piece by achieving things reassurance that they're going to want uphold the one country 2 systems for hong kong. no david definitely not and we know that you know there go there are some protests expected today but it has to be said the police have done pretty much everything they can to stop and slow down any type of protest today on this national day we know that 11 m.t.r. train stations have been shut to try to stop protesters from going where they say they might be going again this is something that's interesting to the the plans for today are pretty big with the protesters there was 1 march that they were going to try to do but that was canceled because they didn't get police permission but we're
6:11 am
hearing there might be a walk along the same march route so we might see some protesters come you know nothing has really started so far today there was a small protest around here and one child where i am that is because behind me the flags were raised part of this national day ceremony flags were raised and so the some protesters cite that as a good venue for them to vent their frustrations about what's been happening over the last nearly 4 months of protests here so we could see some things that involve over the coming hours and again you know the police have really kind of ramp things up based on the information they say they have there was very violent details of what the protesters were going to try to carry out today so the police use that as their leverage to ratchet up security around the city and shutting the train stations even before there's even any evidence really of any protesters coming out there via scott hyder keeping an eye on the situation in hong kong for us thank you
