10:39 am

on a zero. al-jazeera it's swear every. this is al-jazeera. glamour shall carry this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty min. crying foul in the democratic republic of congo the runner up in the presidential election takes his case to the top or demanding
10:49 am
a recount. as president heads out of the f.b.i. after report that the agency opened an investigation into whether he was a national security threat. posed by her by her. was. a call for the british prime minister to step down and for a new general elections just days before a crucial vote. it was a pleasure for me listening. to her new. age theory a new. saudi teenager who took a family and feared that she was deported back to riyadh receives a warm welcome and canada. runner up in the democratic republic of congo's presidential election is challenging the official results martin has appealed to the constitutional court
10:50 am
electoral commission gave his rival thirty eight percent of the vote four percent ahead of and the results also show that the ruling coalition of outgoing president joseph kabila has won a large majority of national assembly seats in the constitution and the president must appoint his prime minister from a party that commands a majority so that's likely to feel suspicion of a power sharing deal with. more. evidence to prove he won last month's election by a landslide sixty one percent of the votes and the presidential run up is challenging the result in the constitutional court. the court we call. because that's what. we. to politicise agree with the result that sydney has announced that. they are fabricated nothing to do with
10:51 am
the truth provisional results released by the election commission on thursday declared felix just a kiddie the winner with nearly thirty nine percent of the vote his supporters say she accept the result. more than guys stop with it's done we want it we don't she didn't she did we didn't make an arrangement. this is just the result of the polling station and we make sure what. we do or we don't want to go into a fight unlike previous elections voting day at the end of last month was relatively peaceful but growing suspicions over the count could derail congress' first democratic transfer of power since independence from belgium in one thousand sixty constitutional court judges like you to meet on monday and tuesday to go through what martin finally says is evidence which proves he won last month's election if the judges say he has no case in felix's the katie will be sworn in as president the influential catholic church is rejecting the official result so too
10:52 am
is france and former colonial power belgium the african union and the southern african development community regional body are appealing to the people of congo to respect the eventual decision of the constitutional court judges and avoid a violent reaction. as are. progress has been made but he doubts paralysed court challenge will change the situation. definitely here the right under the constitution to. every course. and you have to show evidence if. the courts are independent or not there we'll deal with accordingly and also show the evidence if you win then you win but what is most important here is to look at really the outcome and where on what has been and make an assessment and look forward but i am i am doubtful that the rebuke and
10:53 am
in the by the results that we change the situation this is a tremendous victory for the congolese people because what you've been thinking would not have been had happened the transfer of power without. bloodshed and. saving the electoral process the democratic process that is very important to the congolese people so as a kid who has been on the other side of your pollution not how. to organize the mix elections without the late what you were criticizing for this i hope you will not do the same president ronald trump has blasted in the york times report that the f.b.i. opened an investigation to find out if france was secretly working on behalf of russia against us and for us according to the paper the investigation began in may two thousand and seventeen after transpired then f.b.i. director james comey counterintelligence investigators were assigned to evaluate
10:54 am
whether trump was a potential threat to national security the f.b.i. also sought to determine whether the president was deliberately working for russia or had unintentionally and influenced by moscow so he responded in a tweet of what he wrote while just learned in the failing new york times that the crop former leaders of the f.b.i. almost fired or forced to leave the agency for some. very bad reasons opened an investigation on me for no reason with no proof after i fired line chains komi a total please resign as a former us associate deputy attorney general and a constitutional lawyer he says this revelation could lead to more investigations and no other president has ever done anything that skates close to the line of acting on behalf of foreign intelligence service or a foreign country it would necessarily constitute treason which under the united
10:55 am
states constitution requires a leveling of war but certainly the evidence that was accumulated suggesting that there was some kind of collaboration between president trump and russia because the house democrats you know now control the house of representatives they can undertake an investigation issue subpoenas to those at the f.b.i. and even though this wasn't you know a crime necessarily it certainly bears on the fitness of the president for office and which means impeachment covers actions that are short of criminal activity but where does this go next and i can guarantee you that the house government affairs an oversight committee will probably issue subpoenas on monday to get the bottom of this why did the f.b.i. think the evidence was credible enough to suggest that mr trump was actually spying on behalf of the country of russia and now another report coming out on the president and russia apparently the washington post is reporting that he has been
10:56 am
concealing a face to face details of meetings rather with the russian president the paper alleges donald trump took back notes made by his interpreter after a meeting with vladimir putin in homburg in two thousand and seventeen reportedly instructed the linguists not to tell us officials what the two had discussed. let's get more now from heidi castro who is in washington d.c. this is quite a report in the washington post heidi what else does it say this article. that's right it was so we are aware of five private meetings between trump and putin during trump's presidency in this article in the washington post focuses on that twenty seventeen meeting in hamburg germany and we know at this point that president of this meeting was of course trump and putin as well as then u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson and trump's interpreter now following that meeting
10:57 am
tillerson told reporters that a wide variety of topics had been discussed and that trump had pressed putin a whether russia had interfered with the presidential elections and that putin had denied it but tillerson did not answer reporters' questions of how the president responded whether or not he accepted that denial as truth while the interpreter told phelim and other members of the ministration of the time that trump did respond saying quote i believe you to putin but since then that interpreters lips have been sealed and this reporting in the washington post sheds light on why that may be the case because they are they are citing former and current u.s. officials saying that trump in structed the interpreter to not share details of the meeting even with other senior members of the administration and took possession that the president took possession of the interpreter's notes of this meeting of
10:58 am
this revelation it would be an extraordinary break from the practices of past u.s. presidents who have sought to get witnesses for these one on one meetings with foreign counterparts especially those representing a foreign adversarial country were verses in this case it appears that trump had wanted secrecy and the result is now there is no existing record of what was said between to these two heads of state not even in classified u.s. documents which is a handicap to. to the policy advisers may have impacted the policy decisions that shrum took what with regards to russia moving forward and perhaps most dangerously of all to us national security gave putin at least the opportunity to have greater leverage on manipulating the u.s. president or shell through precedented situation heidi so what possible
10:59 am
reasons could there be for such unusual behavior on the president's part that's the big question that remains to be answered as you mentioned this headline just follows a day after the new york times broke the other story where the f.b.i. was at least at one time if not presently investigating trouble as a possible national security threat to the u.s. because he may have either wittingly or unwittingly unwittingly been a tool of the russian government so if this meeting occurred the way that the washington post reported and the contents of what was discussed was concealed of course that begs the question why what was discussed why with the public why would trump not want the public to know about it now his allies have defended the president saying that this is simply trumped style as a businessman he wanted to build report with putin he doesn't like subordinates in the room because it hinders that and also the president is as
11:00 am
a no fear of leaks from within his administration and having fewer people know the details of these sensitive discussions may to him be more of a protection mechanism. ok live in washington heidi thank you. still on the news hour. the government was well aware of the risks of. reporting from. earthquake in september. and expected.
