7:07 am
light to have proper idea i'm told by the disaster management agency but the airport in is operating there is no cut for the electricity or natural gas but i have to say that this is winter the weather conditions are bad and people are not able to get inside their homes their buildings they have to stay outside that's why the n.g.o.s turkish red crescent and disaster management agency have dispatched 490 search and rescue personnel and some 10 cent. blanc and blankets to the area i have to also say that the immediate cities around. have also felt the earthquake and there are there are damages in cities like mata for instance especially in patrol get the strict there are dozens of buildings that are damaged but we have to see the morning for the details but i have to also underline that turkey is a moment the most suspect leap active countries in the world there are several

7:09 am
the ukrainian president president tried to cheat he got caught and then he worked hard to cover it up only his will goes he is a dictator this must not stand and that is why another reason he must be removed from office and that the president obstructed congress as it proved his alleged wrongdoing by withholding evidence and intimidating potential witnesses it's simple the president abuse the powers entrusted. by the american people in a skiing to suppress evidence escape accountability and orchestrate a massive cover up and he did so in plain sight. and his obstruction remains ongoing now it's up to the president's lawyers to make
7:10 am
their case we're going to rebut and refute and we're going to put on an affirmative case tomorrow unlike the democrats the white house lawyers are not expected to use all of their time they will be assured morning session on saturday but their arguments are expected to start in earnest on monday donald trump has made it clear that he wants his case made in weekday t.v. primetime and not during the weekend the white house will argue that it was in the national interest to ask the ukrainian president for an investigation into biden and his son and potential conflicts of interest why did hunter biden hold a lucrative position at an allegedly corrupt ukrainian energy company despite having no expertise in the area while his father was vice president why they opened up the door as wide as a double door on the. job. i guess they figured that was their way of getting ahead of it we will address it in addition they will argue that it is the democrats who are abusing their power as they seek to overturn the results of the 2016 election and influence the next and violate the
7:11 am
constitutionally mandated separation of powers between congress and the president the sense here is that it's still very unlikely that any witnesses will be cool so the white house is still on track for an acquittal of the president before the state of the union address on february 4th. 0 washington. audio recording from 2018 is a merc from which donald trump appears to demand the removal of washington's then ambassador to ukraine where you gonna be a choice for call last april that's almost a year after this recording was made in which a voice that does sound like trump says take her out if it's authentic it would support democrats' argument the trance associates try to because she was seen as an obstacle to investigating joe biden or now from she and how that audio could affect the trial. now we have this recording which is by left which is one of rudy giuliani the president's personal lawyer as associates and all that it's at a dinner party at the trump international hotel here in washington and you hear
7:12 am
left parlous all voices on the tape saying to trump you've out of it she's standing in the way of things she's bad mouth in you and then you had donald trump say you know we got to get rid of her character for. there's a surprise that we know translates he's open about that and he says that he she was a very bad ambassador and of course the president allowed to get rid of ambassadors that they serve at the pleasure of the president it is interesting in a way though because you get more of that granular detail because you can hear how . and perhaps others in the giuliani circle are trying to manipulate the president say look this woman you got to get rid of her and then trump says ok let's just get rid of it so that's quite interesting. but. more of a case for the democrats to say look there's a lot of stuff out there which we should be subpoenaing please allow us to do that there's no evidence that that's going to happen it still looks like by the end of next week at the beginning of the following week will be acquitted. still ahead on al-jazeera one year on families of those killed in brazil's worst mining disaster
