of the korean words for clan and wealth. these influential groups of companies include samsung, hyundai and lotte group — all of which dominate the domestic economy. and have done so for many, many yea rs. to put this in perspective, samsung alone accounts for 30% of the entire value of the korean stock market, but there are dozens of other chaebols in the country. the corruption scandal isn't the only issue facing the korean economy. over its decision to host the united states thaad missile defence system. we'll have more on all of this in the next 20 minutes. we will be going live to our asia business hub as well when we are an expert view on what this getting an exgertvlewsn what this ! for korea as getting an exgertvlewsn what this ! for- korea as the former means for south korea as the former president is questioned what shifts

colluded with the russian government to influence last year's election. james comey made the announcement in a congressional hearing, bringing the possibility of criminal charges right to the door of the white house. he also told the hearing intelligence agencies could find no information to support mr trump's claim he was ‘wiretapped' by the obama administration. our north america editor is jon sopel. intelligence hacked computers belonging to the democratic party before the election. but from that, one question — was there collusion between the trump campaign and moscow? the president says that is fake news. then there is the allegation that barack obama tapped the phones in trump tower before the election, perhaps using british agents from gchq. big questions, for a big man. at six foot eight, james comey stands head—and—shoulders above all around him.
so would he stick his neck out today, at this hearing? answer — yes. the fbi, as part of our counter—intelligence mission, is investigating the russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. and that includes investigating the nature of any links and the russian government, and whether there was any co—ordination between the campaign and russia's efforts. on the detail of the investigation into russian collusion, james comey would not be drawn. but what about the president's claims that his predecessor, barack obama, had wiretapped trump tower? here, he was moreforthmmiﬁgi with respect to the president's tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, i have no 5s presidentﬁ‘ssme cstjldmt of anyone?

i believe that the relationship” " " " is strong enough, this is something tweeting his verdict. the white flag? of course they weren't. is the president prepared and apologise to the president? me. we're. we're : and. as for consistent—— with the russians, what collusion? there is no evidence, according to the people that have to believe that that exists. the president's one puistiefheeetiegw-teee? and saying.
