12:00 am
the other transnational criminals that we have investigated and successfully prosecuted that nobody is untouchable preponderance. welcome to our viewers here in the the united states and around the world. next here on cnn newsroom, the protests in hong kong have never been more violent. one protesters has been shot by police and we learned demonstrators have set a man on fire. we'll take you live to the streets. bolivia's leader is out, but now the question is who is coming in. we'll have the latest on that country's political crisis. >> also we are just days away from what could be the most important developments yet in
12:01 am
the u.s. impeachment inquiry. more on the key witnesses we expect to hear from and what they are testimony could mean. thank you for joining us. our top story comes from hong kong, which has seen clashes between protesters and police for months, but the past several hours have been especially violent. we're learning a man who confronted protesters was douse ed with the flamable liquid and set on fire. the video is incredibly graphic and has been shared on social media. hospital authorities say they are treating a man with burns in critical condition. that incident emerged after another police officer shot a
12:02 am
protester. we're about to show you that shooting, but we warn you that is also graphic. >> we're told the protester survived the shooting and is now in a hospital in critical condition. for more, let's go to cnn's will ripley live in hong kong for us out on the streets for us. it's just unbelievable how this is becoming more and more dangerous and violent. >> reporter: it is, natalie. i'm not wearing a gas mask and a helmet to be dramatic. there's not been tear gas fired, but i learned from experience on halloween night when there are police officers nearby with tear gas guns drawn, we have to put on ours as well because it's almost inevitable as they clear
12:03 am
the barricades that protesters have set up, shutting down hong kong's busiest shopping district, once against, it's surreal on a busy monday afternoon my gym down the street is closed. all these businesses that hong kongers rely on every single day are shut down. the city's economy struggling in ore session because of relatively small groups of people who have figured out a way to move in quickly, shut down major thorough fair, set up barricades and bring out the police in force. but there's a lot of bystanders here. there are no protesters. they have already moved on. they moved right down the street. to the next location where they are going to hunker down, build barricades, set fires, spray paint, do it all over again. that's so remarkable. we are more than five months into this protest movement. i can tell you this is some of the worst that we have seen in
12:04 am
terms of disruption on a busy monday when people are supposed to be able to work. workers around here were sent home early. officers were evacuated after tear gas was fired. tear gas actually hit a man in the head causing him to plead at central station right over there. there was a tear gas fired inside the station. the stations are very popular targets for the protesters who are intent on doing as much damage as they can to make the point that they are fighting for their future, they say. they are fighting for the future of hong kong. fighting for democracy. but natalie, this feels not so much like a fight for democracy, but a fight against the government. a fight against the police. a fight against the very institutions that are supposed to hold this city together. but at the moment, it's all kind of mom coming apart. there's no end in sight. >> you truly get a sense of that
12:05 am
with the latest developments. we thank you for us on the streets there in hong kong. thank you, will. >> in just a few hours, people in bolivia will wake up to a new political era, one that does not include their former president. >> this is another country that people have been taken to the streets to try to push back a government that has been unfair. we have been bringing you protests in recent weeks fuelled by accusations of voter fraud in last month's elections. he leaves behind a power vacuum after a round of resignations, the souecond vice president of bolivia says she's next in line and ready to assume the office ahead of new elections. we take a look at why moraless finally stepped down.
12:06 am
>> political earthquake is rocking bolivia after the country's long-serving president mora less was forced to step down. it's been weeks of violent protests and that he had stolen an election to become president. he denied that and said he was facing a kooup. but after a report came out showing fraud, he finally offered to hold new elections. the offer came too late from country's opposition, for the military and the police. many had risen up against moral morales. they said it was time for him to leave office. he did just that within hours shocking bolivia and much of latin america. he said it was a coup, but he recognized if he didn't leave, there would be bloodshed. many critics say he had become too authoritarian, that he was
12:07 am
never plan ining on leaving the presidency and he was essentially becoming a dictator. so while morales is out, he's received offers from other countries to seek asylum there. but mo rels says while he may not be president, he's not going anywhere. cnn, mexico city. >> the u.s. impeachment inquiry moves into a new and potentially damaging phase for president trump this week. allegations the president withheld military aid to ukraine in exchange for an investigation of a political opponent will move from written transcripts into public televised hearings for millions to watch. republicans are demanding the whistleblower who triggered the inquiry testify in public. >> it's impossible to bring this case forward, in my view, fairly without us knowing who the whistleblower is is and having a chance to cross examine them about vices they may have.
12:08 am
so if they don't call the whistleblower in the house, this thing is dead on arrival in the senate. >> jeremy diamond has more on what's ahead this week. >> reporter: president trump on sunday continuing to attack the impeachment inquiry in the democrats who are running the process. something he's done for weeks, but this time it comes as this impeachment inquiry prepares to move to its public phase. several officials slated to head to capitol hill for public televised hearings on capitol hill including the current u.s. affair bill taylor, the top diplomat in ukraine and a state department official george kent. those will be the first to come on wednesday. as all of that is happening, we are seeing republicans trying to fine tune their defense of the president. several republican senators on sunday suggesting that, well, a quid pro quo may have happened. but that it's not a problem. >> i think we have gotten lost in this whole idea of quid pro
12:09 am
quo. he hit the nail on the head. if you're not allowed to give aid to people who are corrupt, there's always contingencies on aid. even president obama withheld aid. i think it's a mistake to say he withheld aid until he got what he wanted. he has every right to withhold aid. >> quid pro quo is a red herring. there's only two relevant questions that need to be ans r answered. why did the president ask for an investigation? and number two, this is linked to the first question, what did hunter biden do for the money. >> house republicans are working up their own efforts to defend the president. that with a witness list they provided to the house intelligence committee democrats demanding several witnesses clearly many of these an attempt to divert attention away from the main allegations that president trump is facing concerning ukraine. two of those witnesses particularly notable. one of them being hunter biden,
12:10 am
the former vice president's son. the other being the whistleblower, the anonymous whistleblower whose complaint sparked this entire inquiry. they have to approve the list and there's no indication they are going to be doing that. house intelligence committee chairman adam is schiff said in a let tore the top republican on the committee that as we move to open hearings, it's important to underscore the impeachment inquiry and the committee will not serve as vehicles for any member to carry out the same sham investigations into the bidens or debunked conspiracy about 2016 u.s. election interference that president trump pressed ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit. so that seems clear there from the top democrat on the intelligence committee, who is running this impeachment inquiry that the witnesses including hunter biden and the whistleblower will not be coming forward. jeremy diamond, cnn, new york. for more on the republicans
12:11 am
strategy heading into the hearings, we're joined by a p t political science lecturer in london. thank you for coming on. >> good morning, natalie. >> the republicans are spinning this to keep the focus on the bidens and corruption and a away from donald trump. is that going to work? >> i think the problem for republicans is that there doesn't appear to be any evidentiary basis to contradict the fact pattern. so they are left with no other options. they might say either trump's actions didn't rise to an impeachable offense or that the intent to commit a crime wasn't there or the white house policy with ukraine is so incoherent that no one can really make sense of it. i don't think that any of those justifications, unfortunately for the republicans, seem convin convincing. sgl the republicansen b issued a witness list to the democrats. they would like to see hunter biden and the whistleblower probably very slim that
12:12 am
republicans will allow that. but if that doesn't happen, they claim that this whole process is invalid. >> that's certainly what they have been trying to do since the beginning. they are going to continue to complain about process. particularly, that the democrats are rejecting the request for witnesses. you mentioned hunt er biden as someone they wanted to interview. they also wanted to interview the whistleblower, but a am dam schiff is insisted he's not going to turn this into a sham. hunter biden has no knowledge to trump's dealings with ukraine and the whistleblower's knowledge of the call is all secondhand. >> republicans are also expect ed to argue that while democrats have built up evidence for foreign policy official, they have yet to prove that trump or those closest to him directly ordered the withholding of aid or asked for political
12:13 am
concessions. is that argument the strongest opening to undermine the democratic impeachment case? >> that's a great point, natalie. i don't find it particularly convincing. i don't think democrats will either. i also don't think the american people will find that a compelling argument. but that's basically the hand that they have been dealt. so i think they are going to try to make it and ult mally it will be able to -- the house and then potentially the senate and also the american people who figure into this as well. >> televised public hearings this week. it will be interesting to see what the ratings are there. at the same time, will the refusal by the white house to make available witnesses like rudy giuliani or mulvaney, will that allow the democrats argue the white house has something to hi hide? >> certainly, that's the case they are going to make. they are essentially going to say, well, if republicans did nothing wrong, if this was such a perfect call and no concerted
12:14 am
effort behind these dealings with ukraine, then why not put everyone forth. this is also going to set up constitutional challenges over checks and balances and separation of powers and that's been the case since the very beginning. who is going to comply with subpoenas, who is not, so you're going to see this battle between the house of representatives and the white house going forward. >> i want to switch gears here a little bit and ask you about something else that developed on sunday. former trump appointee nikki hailey has a book coming out and she says that former top white house officials rex til lerson and john kelly asked her to undermine the president. here she is sunday about that. let's listen. >> instead of saying that to me, they should have been saying that to the president. not asking me to join them on their side bar plan. it should have been go tell the
12:15 am
president what your differences are and quit if you don't like what he's doing. >> let's talk about what she's referring to. she claims that both of these men wanted to undermine the president and asked her to work to undermine the president because she writes they said that he doesn't know what he's doing. he's incompetent and that they are trying to save the country. that's quiet a revealing look at the west wing and the chaos that has really been there from the beginning. >> it stecertainly is. the first thing to remember is the backdrop of it. she wants to sell books and set up her political career career. there's been speculation she might some day run for president. but to the point that you make, the details of the book seem very consistent with there being a lot of concern within the white house about the competence and the judgment of this president at a very basic level.
12:16 am
she certainly isn't the first to make this observation. so this is bisically very consistent with the narrative that we have already seen. >> thomas gift, we appreciate your insight, thank you for joining us. >> thank you, natalie. it started an an informal holiday to celebrate single life. now sing is thes day rakes in billions of dollars. we'll tell you why it's the biggest record busting shopping day of the year in china. here at... snowfest... for your worst sore throat pain try vicks vapocool drops. it's not candy, it's powerful relief. ahhhhhh! vaporize sore throat pain with vicks vapocool drops. aveeno® with prebiotic striple oat complex balances skin's microbiome. so skin looks like this and you feel like this. aveeno® skin relief. get skin healthy™

12:21 am
cars and liquor. basically whatever you can think of. david culver is keeping track of the nirms. could you pick me up a couple teslas and some beer. >> as long as you keep the two separate. not r for the same outing. i think i'm going to fall asleep seeing numbers counting in my mind. this has been incredible to watch. they have several monitors set up at global headquarters. and right now we're at $30.3 billion. we're about $500 million away from last year's record. we still have several hours to go for this online shopping extravaganza to continue. it's indicative of consumer confidence. analysts say what we're look in
12:22 am
at in the midst of a down economy, growth has slowed to its lowest level in three decades. you have the u.s. trade war still ongoing. and yet this may give us a clue as to what everyday folks are thinking and how they are willing to spend their money. it will be more interesting to tell the percentage in growth year to year. we'll get those numbers year to year. it will be indicative of consumer strength. some analysts point out anybody looking for a bargain is going to come today. so interesting to have watched over the past several weeks as people have prepared for this day and had their iphones and android devices and phones prepared for their apps putting in their e-card. a list of things that they have been scouting out and preparing to buy today. so eded a midnight is when they started going through the e checkout and making the
12:23 am
purchases final and benefits in doing so. also interesting to seat brands that are showcased here and doing pretty well. a lot of the chinese market is looking to do chinese shopping. they want the brands from china to support local f you will, as they are seeing it. they believe the quality has increased greatly over the past few years and serving demands just fine. >> that's also fascinating in the this that goes along with it. if this has gone global, how is it spreading outside of china? >> i spent time with the chief marketing officer. he stressed that point. this is not just a china-focused event. they have 78 countries that are taking part. i was looking at the top cou countries selling to the china market. you have japan up there, the u.s., korea, and at the same time, this model of connecting retailers with customers is is something that's been exported by the group to several other
12:24 am
countries. they see this as an effort that's moving beyond the people's republic. >> we'll see if it tops the $30 billion mark from last year. david culver, very interesting stuff. thank you so much. keep watching it. other news we're following for you, aramco is releasing details on the record-shattering ipo. but the oil giant won't say how much of the company will be floated. we have a report on what could be the biggest public offering ever. >> reporter: investors are one step closer to the opportunity of owning a piece of the world's most profitable company. the 600-page perspective outlining what could be the largest public offering ever. exactly how big it will be remains unknown, but it could be the biggest listing ever without china holding the current crown. the oil giant is set to sell half a percent of sharing to
12:25 am
retail investors with the offering period kicking off on november 17th. trading of that saudi stock exchange expected to start mid-december. the perspectives did not say how much of the company would be floated. original plans from the listing are looking less likely scaling back in the region of 1 to 2%. but oil prices, the climate crisis remains concerns for noviinvest torts including the attack on the oil facilities, which temporarily cut the production in half. after that speedy recovery, the aramco chairman said it makes sense at this juncture. >> i think this is the right time for us coming to terms with the case. to be a public company to have full disclosure. >> this is one of the crown prince's priorities in the 2030 vision. while it may be smaller than expected, he wants it delivered

12:32 am
obama carried the state twice, some trump supporters blasted the democrats. >> i think it's a total witch hunt just like president trump says. i think that the democrats are really just trying to overturn the results from 2016. i think it's going to fail miserably. >> the president is doing a great job. >> reporter: they praised the president's performance. >> look at the real estate. house goes on the market, it's gone in a week, if it takes that long. the economy is booming. >> reporter: but in the sixth congressional district, which elected a democrat to congress in 2018 after trump won it narrowly in 2016, some voters said they were tired of a president who feels he's above the law. >> why not just let the ballot box determine the fate of the president. bl it's the depth of what has gone on. the extent to which the administration feels above the law. our minds just continue to get blown. there has to be a limit. >> former republican tamara
12:33 am
stevens supports impeaching the president, even if it energizes trump supporters. >> asking for an investigation and dirt on your political opponent in 2020, i mean, he could potentially be going up against biden. this is what he was asking for. that has a value that well exceeds a million dollars. so how people can excuse that and say, oh, it's no big teal. it's just part of diplomacy. >> reporter: there's an important difference between the ukraine investigation and the russia investigation trump spent two years slamming. >> this is looking forward to 2020 and trying to mess around with an election that we have coming up. that's a whole new ball game. >> reporter: republicans in her district not surprisingly disagree. >> i think it is a sham. it's not as much the impeachment itself as the process that they
12:34 am
are going to that is precedent in the history of this country. >> in pennsylvania which went for trump in 2016 going red for the first time since 1988, voters split largely along party lines with democrats ready to throw the book at trump. >> we're seeing the evidence in realtime almost. i think that that's good enough for me to think that he's ready to go. >> i think he's violated the law. trying to exploit money appropriated from the congress and holding that up say iing, i need a favor. >> reporter: republicans standing by the president. >> i don't think david copperfield or houdini was living they could pull a quid pro quo out of that transcript. >> how do you explain away testimony from other who is say they had concerns about the call? >> those are not data points. that's opinion.
12:35 am
i don't know we can try somebody gays based on somebody's set of opinions. >> reporter: indents were split. >> i have seen enough evidence in reading the transcripts and watching a variety of news sources that looks like a lot of abuse of power. >> things he's done are reprehensible and i'm embarrassed he's our president. but i'm not a lawyer. i don't know if those things rise to the level of high crimes. >> reporter: back in michigan even those who support the inquiry have is a clear warning for democrats. don't let this side track you from tackling the issues that are top of mind for voters like health care and jobs. >> i think it's important that the inquiry be going on. i also think it's important that wedistracted by it and there's governance going on as well. >> reporter: athena jones, cnn, new york. president trump has plenty of support in russia and while some russians enjoy whiatching e political disnungs the u.s., matthew chance reports they are
12:36 am
concerned about how russia would be affected if president trump were impeached. >> reporter: in the burger bars in moscow, trump is a favorite on the menu. >> the trump burger. >> what's in the trump burger? >> it's angus beef. >> the president, like the burger, is popular with russian diners. >> wow, this is so wonderful man because this is special. >> you love his hair. >> i like he's strong. and the truth is is many russians see president trump as
12:37 am
a rare friend in the white house. what would be lost in the impeachment. when russian state television, tightly controlled by the kremlin, support for trump and the impeachment battle is absolute. after all, it's russia that sometimes joke that got him elected. allegations of election meddling were officially denied, but often referenced even on serious news shows with a wink. have you lost your mind that you want to remove our donald, asks the host of this weekly current affairs program. they say trump is weakenng the united states, says one of his guests. yes, he is, and that's why we love him, he adds. more problems they have, the better for us. it's no secret only russians are taking pleasure at the political discord in the united states. impeachment, according to
12:38 am
republican members of congress, in a recent open let tore "the wall street journal" is what vladimir putin wants. but a fast-moving impeachment process may be too chaotic even for the russian president. he lifted arms control deals and a working relationship with the white house. virtually impossible, he says, in such a toxic political environment. >> how can we cooperate with them when they are so engaged in their domestic political affa s affairs? obviously, this is always the case during an election year, but this political race has gone a little over the top. i don't think it's ever been like this in the history of the united states. >> reporter: like russia itself, its views on trump and possible impeachment are complicated and contradictory. they relish the chaos, but crave stability and have little time for opponents of their american
12:39 am
friend. >> what about people who say he's not a good president and should not be president? >> this is people who think they are one of these. >> reporter: as you can see, president trump is very popular in russia. people here see him as sympathetic to their world view. and amid-international sanctions of this country for his actions in ukraine and elsewhere, u.s. president is an outspoken advocate for bringing russia in from the cold. they are maybe watch iing the political crisis from some satisfaction, but few russians really want to see president trump leave office. matthew chance, cnn, moscow. here's what we can expect to happen for thoeds watching in the united states and russia too. it's going to be a busy few weeks. cnn will bring it all to you live, including the coverage of

12:52 am
from a regional center about four hours north of sydney. it's here the epicenter of the bush fire emergency response. over the last 24 hours or so, people that have had to evacuate their homes and businesses have come here with caravan, trailers, just their cars, anything they can to escape the fire leaving their homes and leave iing our crews to respond this emergency. we have lost more than 150 homes already and tragically three people have lost their lives. it's certainly been a businey 2 hours for emergency crews. let's take a lock at what the fire service have had to say about their emergency response. >> we have another 400 flying in and driving in today. ahead of the the conditions tomorrow. our colleagues from victoria are sending in more than 50 additional fire trucks, which have been prepositioned in areas
12:53 am
ready for rapid deployment in the local fire fighting effort. >> but of course, the emergency isn't over yet. the rural fire service here in new south wales is predicting catastrophic conditions tomorrow. that's for a number of reasons. we're expecting high temperatures upwards of 40 degrees and very strong winds and we have had drought conditions for several years now across the region, meaning there's no water in the soil, no water in the plants and everything erupts when it catches fire. we have had dozens of fires burning across the region through recent months. fire crews are really struggled to contain them. the concern is tomorrow when the conditions deteriorate things could escalate. >> i'm sure people in the state of california can relate to that scene b there. we'll keep tabs on that story this week. it is cold in the u.s. much colder than usual. over the next week, arctic blast will break records across the country from the midwest to the
