6:01 am
calling it a publicist stopped. us democrats are opening a formal impeachment inquiry into president trump of a claim he sought political help from ukraine house speaker nancy pelosi made the announcement after trump acknowledged a phone call with ukraine's president in which he discussed democratic presidential hopeful joe biden trump admitted to withholding aid to ukraine ahead of that call but denied using it as political leverage. the actions of the trump presidency reveal its dishonorable fact of the president's betrayal of his oath of office betrayal of our national security and fix the integrity of our elections therefore today announcing the house of representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry and directing our 6 committees to proceed with their
6:02 am
investigations under that umbrella of impeachment inquiry the president must be held accountable no one is a part of the law trump reportedly wanted ukraine's president to investigate joe biden and his son for corruption he says he's authorized the release of a transcript of the phone call with not a ms lewinsky and denied any impropriety and reacting to policies announcement trump fired back on twitter calling the impeachment inquiry presidential harassment he lashed out at the democrats for quote ruining the united nations general assembly with witch hunt garbage shabba tansey as the latest now from washington d.c. almost as soon as nancy pelosi had stopped talking the republican party including donald trump himself were circulating a video that was ready to go putting forward the argument that because the democrats called defeat donald trump at the ballot box they feel their only alternative is to impeach it was a montage of sorts selectively edited suggesting that the democrats were being
6:03 am
rather on the hand of that's one of the reasons why nancy pelosi has long been against impeachment she has all along felt this would be too divisive and could give a real boost to the old base at a time when perhaps some of them were wavering about donald trump as ever gave the the opportunity for the republican party to talk about what chance once again and certainly that was the message that was received from the house minority leader the republican leader nancy pelosi is counterpart in the house an hour after pelosi spoke. our job is to legislate not to continue to investigate something in the back when you cannot find any reason to impeach this president this election is over i realize 2016 did not turn out the way speaker pelosi wanted it to happen but she cannot change the laws of this congress she cannot unilaterally decide when a pietschmann inquiry what she said today made no difference of what's been going
6:04 am
on it's no different than what natalie has been trying to do it's time to put the public before politics it's not entirely clear how the impeachment inquiry process will work nancy pelosi mentioned that there already 6 committees on the way investigating dog trump for alleged malfeasance those will now be on movie umbrella of an impeachment inquiry but the detail is also a bit murky but at the very least it would seem that by introducing the idea of a formal impeachment inquiry at least some of these committees will get some of the information that they want and which the white house has so far refused to give over so let's take a look at how impeachment works when the lengthy process begins in the house which debate some votes on whether to bring charges against the president if that vote is successful a trial of sorts just presided by the chief justice of the u.s. supreme court is then held in the senate a 2 thirds majority vote is needed in the 100 member senate to convict and remove the president this has never happened the girl schneider is
6:05 am
a professor of public policy at george mason university he says public opinion the way the term pitch the president is changing. well there almost certainly be an impeachment inquiry what we don't know is whether they'll be a vote whether it will end up in a vote for impeachment you need a majority of the house to vote for impeachment now that's what happened of course with bill clinton democrats have a majority but not all democrats have come on board yet but you could have a majority by just democrats so far no republicans have supported even an impeachment inquiry much less actually impeaching the president think the public is a law and by why president trumpeters doing he appears to have defied the constitution and then his standard procedure is defiance he defies congress he defies the press he defies common decency sometimes in his handling of immigration and now he's defied the constitution and that's something that has to be taken very
6:06 am
very seriously until now there was not a majority public support for impeachment but that is changing very very rapidly the french president among your macro has again met iranian president hassan rouhani on the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly urging him to meet donald trump. we believe. we know we think it's pretty tough to get the start of. going on if you don't miss it is a look at the relations between the u.s. and iran became even more tense following attacks on 2 major oil facilities in saudi arabia this month washington says iran was behind the attack tehran denies the claims mako is urging the countries to pursue negotiation efforts in while the pakistani prime minister in one concept as he was asked by donald trump to help diffuse tensions with iran met rouhani but did not elaborate on what was discussed he did say efforts to mediate a seems a good. image of just both president rouhani yesterday off to off to the
6:07 am
meeting with the president trump. but i don't see anything right now more than this except that we are trying and mediating john hall has been following developments at the united nations. there has been a flurry of activity involving a number of leaders meeting separately here in new york with her son rouhani the iranian president and also with donald trump france germany japan pakistan and the united kingdom all pushing a separate piece of trying to broker what would be a historic meeting between 2 countries whose leaders haven't met for 40 years emmanuel macron the french president particularly engaged in this effort he's known to want to set up negotiations more broadly at some point to take in a 4 point program and get a new nuclear file of course also ending the war in yemen coming up with a regional security plan and lifting sanctions he said that conditions he believes
6:08 am
are right now for a rapid resumption of negotiations it's now up to iran and the united states to seize the opportunity well that hasn't happened yet iran wants a lifting of sanctions now as a precondition for talks to donald trump he is not willing to do that at the moment but he has left the door open the u.s. president saying we are here we do have time they'd like to meet and certainly it makes sense to meet but nothing has been agreed yet well only on tuesday donald trump address the general assembly i'm reminded the u.n. the potentials of peace but he also lashed out at china iran and venezuela while laying out his strategy of america 1st diplomatic editor james bays reports. as he arrived at the general assembly the world was watching for president trump's next move on iran the u.s. has been joined by the u.k. france and germany in holding iran responsible for the drone attacks on saudi oil
6:09 am
facilities but the president who launched a policy of maximum pressure on to ron is still for now talking about possible diplomacy on iran i think we're doing very well let's see what happens with iran but we are a very strong position on iran and i think they'd like to do something and i think would be a smart thing for them if they did and of course when he took to the podium inside the general assembly whole there was plenty of criticism of iranian policy but also another all the branch america is ready to embrace friendship with all who genuinely and seek. peace and respect. many of america's closest friends today were once our great his foes the united states has never believed in permanent enemies we want hard news not adversaries
6:10 am
america knows that while anyone can make war. only the most courageous can choose peace in the speech they were old so tough words for china an effort perhaps to increase the pressure on beijing ahead of forthcoming trade talks the american people are absolutely committed to restoring balance to our relationship with china hopefully we can reach an agreement that would be beneficial for both countries. but as i have made very clear i will not accept a bad deal for the american people. when he spoke the u.n. secretary general raised concerns that the war of words between china and the us could develop into something much more serious i hear the possibility of a great fracture the world splitting into we did 2 largest economies on hers could be a thing to separate and competing worlds which we then own dominant currency trade
