when i went. to all. this time and how does it. we understand the different. and the similarities of cultures across the world send a matter how you take al-jazeera will bring in the news and current events that matter to. key former aides of u.s. president trump a charge as part of the inquiry into links between russia and his election campaign .
and i'm adrian from again this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up spanish prosecutors secret belly and charges against cattle areas to post-process session leaders plus. the. anger in kenya after her kenya as a is declared the winner of a controversial presidential election rerun. and fighting breast cancer at its stigma we look at how one organization is confronting the challenge in sierra leone . there's been major developments in the investigation into links between russia and the campaign to get donald trump elected as u.s. president trumps former campaign manager paul modified and his business associates at been charged with conspiring against the u.s. it's also in the us that a third man who served as a campaign advisor has pleaded guilty to lying to the. f.b.i.
about his contacts with russia the white house though is deflecting the news saying that none of this has anything to do with donald trump a white house correspondent kimberly helka reports. trump do solemnly swear donald trump has been in office less than a year but this is perhaps the most significant day of his presidency so far on monday two of his former associates avoided handcuffs and turned themselves into the authorities in washington the first is paul mann afford the former chair of donald trump's presidential election campaign the other is rick gates a longtime business associate of matter forts and worked with the white house until march both men appeared in court pleading not guilty to a dozen charges they include conspiracy against the united states also to launder money acting as an agent for a foreign principal providing false statements to investigators and failure to
report foreign bank accounts there is no evidence that mr mann of fort with a trunk campaign colluded with the russian government. the announcement which caught many off guard that a third person tied to the truck campaign george papadopoulos had pled guilty to lying to the f.b.i. that was over the timing of his meetings with alleged go betweens for russia he is now cooperating with the special investigation led by robert muller as with tall man afforded rick gates the white house is pushing back diminishing the role of papadopoulos as a foreign policy advisor this individual was the member of a volunteer advisory council them at one time over the course of a year and he was part of a list that was read out in the washington post i'd hardly call that some sort of regular advisor however it's the case of paul manna for which is getting the most attention the indictments paint the picture of a man living
a lavish lifestyle when f.b.i. agents raided his home they even photographed his suits as evidence of money laundering more than seventy five million a form payments through offshore bank accounts on twitter trump reacted to the arrests he has repeatedly called the investigation into ties between his two thousand and sixteen presidential campaign and russia a witch hunt by political adversaries and the media without offering any evidence the white house says it expects the russia probe to wrap up soon and will the indictment states man a fourth charges involve actions from twenty sixteen on twitter trump contradicted the claim arguing the charges against him out of fort emanate from actions taken before chairing trump's presidential bid trump again stated there was no collusion between his campaign and russia metaphor its lawyer calls the charges ridiculous and on capitol hill top u.s.
senators are also issuing statements about the indictments claiming it is proof the justice process is working kimberly helped get al jazeera washington live out of washington al-jazeera as alan fischer is set there for a silence of the white house saying that none of this has anything to do with donald trump with a right. well a couple problems with that first of all seeing that charges all relate to his time before with the campaign they don't want the indictment covers up to february twenty seventh in all over the period when paul minor four was the campaign manager for donald trump no the white house is trying to don't play the role that paul minor for played in the campaign but he was campaign manager for a lot longer than steve bannon who eventually got donald trump over the line and he played a key part in formulating the platform for the republican convention and also was the man who essentially pushed mike pence into the vice presidency put him before donald trump and said this is the guy you need to pick when donald trump was pretty
keen on getting chris christie the job but george papadopoulos the man who's played guilty to misleading f.b.i. agents that brings the whole thing a lot closer to donald trump because even though the white house says look he played a minor advisory volunteer role he was e-mailing senior people in the campaign and saying look the russians could give us some information on hillary clinton and at no point did someone from the campaign think wait a minute if they've got thousands of e-mails they must have got them illegally we should tell the f.b.i. about this essentially he was given the green light to in at least follow that thread so these are two things which will can say on the trump white house they might stand back and say this is nothing to do with ayers it's all just moving through the process but there are threads there the f.b.i. and the special counsel can pull out and see what eventually unravels allen many thanks alan fischer in washington let's get a few now from all of them again
a former senior policy adviser to president bill clinton he joins us live from texas what do you make of the day's events particularly. the revelation that george peppard openness has pled guilty to misleading f.b.i. agents. well this is going to be the flush and sausage making that's going to take place in an obscure far act which really has been prosecuted for a one in forty years that we've seen. a conviction on this and this is going to be opening pandora's box i think we're going to see a whole lot of things spilling out as a result of this we're in a global lee geo political economy right now that has network extra analyses and network connections across the globe and we need to be looking at how we do the far
compliance which is really a transparency compliance law and we have to do some reporting to the justice department about all sorts of activities that are taking place across our borders our international borders both on the left and the right at the geo political sphere so i think everyone right now is rather cautious in washington because we're going to see a lot of fallout in this pandora's box i like to call it the farrah fawcett and that faucet is spilling open and right now everyone sort of kind of looking cautiously at prosecution a special prosecution that really is just looking at the nexus between democracy and politics and justice and that nexus is the leverage what we have in this indictment today is leverage getting people talking getting people to share what they think happened speculation is everywhere and naturally this white house the trump white house is being very very cautious at this time because it does not
we're going to have a constitutional crisis on our hands so both the left and the right in washington ok so you're saying that the this could this pandora's box that you talk about could end up brain not just republicans people associated with a tribe campaign but democrats too but how close to do today's events bring donald trump to the this russian inquiry. i think like most like most of the investigation inquiry trump is very very far away from what they call collusion and again collusion is not is not against the law but i think we've got a long stretch before we take the day's events and put it in the lap of a sitting president who is in charge of. law and order and justice so when we start looking at that nexus right now at a prosecution trying to establish leverage we have to stand back and be cautious and do less is best and wait and see because right now even before the announcement
of this came today everyone that the beans were spilling all over the table with regard to the left and clinton clinton background and all kinds of piece pieces that of the political sphere were spilling all over the floor. what you can take from me right now and way my face is looking right now i'm very cautious a very very cautious and concerned is what i'm seeing across the across the spectrum in washington d.c. about how to handle this very very carefully we need to let the prosecutor do their work and then basically wrap this up because this is a four year that is really only been prosecuted very few times four hundred cases in the last forty years and we only have nine people in the justice department actually processes these transparency and disclosures ok it's an important transparency disclosure but it is not always basically pulled into this realm of commerce of criminal criminal indictment ok out of the gate good story to so many
thanks to our special prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich but he thinks de thank you. spain's chief prosecutor is seeking charges against several regional politicians cattle earliest recent votes on suspension the cattle and leaders could face up to thirty years in jail if convicted of rebellion sedition and embezzlement meanwhile the post catalan president pushed amount has travelled to brussels seeking the seeking support for the bid to split from spain andrew symonds reports from barcelona. the police may be guarding it's put the seeds of regional government here no longer has a president as its head the spanish state is in charge its flag didn't get removed when says session was declared by parliament last friday only sign of carlos. is his portrayed his name is among twenty others on the charge sheet filed by spain's chief prosecutor. in the studio the prosecution has filed several
charges for rebellion addition and embezzlement against the main political leaders of the cattle and regional government in their actions and decisions over the past two years have caused an institutional crisis that resulted in the unilateral declaration of independence this was carried out without observing and ignoring our constitution. these charges are the worst case scenario for the sat catalan leaders sedition carries a maximum of fifteen years in jail and rebellion a maximum of thirty years. some ministers braved it out by appearing folk were then being asked by police to leave one was defiant. we will continue. later came separate meetings of both parties that were in the government coalition and they both agreed to take part in the elections called by the spanish government for december more twists and turns in
a crisis with so many dimensions and now the threat of jail hanging over politicians who declared a republic but now want to stand in the elections and do simmons' al-jazeera pass alone or pencil operations and protests in kenya where who are can ask has been declared the winner of the presidential election rerun results show that he took ninety eight point two percent of the votes but the opposition has dismissed kenya has victory saying the low turnout means that he doesn't have a mandate to lead from either miller reports from nairobi. the official announcement that who're kenyatta had secured his second term in office was no surprise for millions of kenyans but a low voter turnout of eighty eight percent has raised questions around the legitimacy of the selection which was ordered by the supreme court after it an old august presidential vote saying the electoral commission had committed illegalities . two hundred sixty nine percent. of
the same. ones. where. it. was nothing more. than a realization. of. state. forest. and. trace. the rerun was marred by violent protests when opposition leader raila odinga and his national super alliance party boycotted the election preventing at least one point eight million kenyans in opposition strongholds from voting. in total at least twelve million kenyans stayed away from the polls observer mission say besides the impact of the boycott violence and intimidation kept many of the voters
away from polling stations. joe you described the vote as a sham with the electoral commission not making the reforms the opposition had demanded for it to participate in the vote virtually every other issue that we raised that last time is present in this election. and what has happened is that this time around i think i was in a crisis over legitimacy a crisis of trying to shore up the numbers so that it appears that there is a legitimate mandate for president and in the course of they have done i mean might enable things i can think of at least seventeen different grounds from the official even if the election is challenged at the supreme court there are concerns the courts may not act independently concerns around the independence of the judiciary was heightened when the court refused to hear a petition to perspire own last week's rerun saying there weren't enough judges
present whether or not this election is challenge legally they are many kenyans that hope this final announcement will bring months of political tensions and uncertainty to an end but is kenya to address the nation asking for unity protests began years ago both political and ethnic rivalries are far from over. u.s. president onil trump says the libyan man links to a twenty twelve attack on an american diplomatic compound in benghazi has been captured attackers killed the ambassador to libya and three other americans in a statement trump said special forces picked up the stuff. in an operation in libya he says that will face justice in the u.s. at least eleven people have been killed in four air strikes in the libyan city of dan up in the east of the country witnesses say that civilian areas were his women and children among the dead a weather update next to zero dead

the protocols of the cease fire and incidental however serious this is not mean and out and i think and to the ceasefire or the talks there is however increasing criticism coming from the opposition here in colombia and even among many government officials about the wisdom of continuing the talks with the land which will become only worse if the decides not to turn in those responsible for the killing. hundreds of refugees a barricading themselves inside a strain is offshore prison camp in papua new guinea there defying attempts to close the facility which will see the six hundred remaining refugees moved to temporary accommodation on the island that are among more than two thousand people originally deported by a stray or to deter asylum seekers from arriving by boat and thomas explains. four years ago australia began sending refugees to try to get to its shores to
