former u.s. intelligence chief says meddling is in russia's d.n.a. therefore it's proof enough that moscow continues to improve president politics said common cable news c.n.n. documentary we'll talk about that is out. to criticisms leveled at the u.s. administration for failing to give solid proof to back its claim that the syrian government is preparing a chemical weapons. in the u.k. prime minister david cameron and prince william are implicated in a corruption scandal over england's failed bid for the twenty eighteen world cup according to a long awaited fee for. moscow
this wednesday morning the twenty eighth of june my name's kevin zero in this is r.t. international good to have you with us first the meddling is in russia's d.n.a. according to the former director of the u.s. national intelligence james clapper he goes on to say that therefore proves that moscow is still making attempts to influence american politics he was appearing in a new documentary that in fact we just aired over the last few hours by the c.n.n. network or courtroom. i think it's in their d.n.a. . or in the soviet era or no. gripping but was it actually correct was a good movie to sit maybe in your popcorn too and it certainly be a good headline grabber i watched a bit of it before i went on shift you watch more of it what were your thoughts was of the big smoking gun there or not while i was so much anticipation over this latest special report from c n n it was billed as the first comprehensive telling of on television of russia's attack on the two thousand and sixty. presidential
race and also with jarring lessons for the american leaders and the public about more attacks still to come now who wouldn't want to watch this it seems like it was going to lift the lid on all of these unverified source is and then substantiated claims it's used in the past to brush up bash with stories almost on a daily basis but i'm afraid that's going to be a lot of disappointed viewers after this report because it's all the same old chuen is just repackaged in a new way a lot of music a lot of close up shots on president putin looking moody and meaner take a look for yourself. some of his of. his prime target you see us. adversaries coming after america dangerous. do you story in cyberspace that would lead to these doorstep and it's all very familiar isn't it we saw a very similar documentary released by c.n.n.
before called putin the most powerful man in the world and the response from the climb into that documentary was that this is hysterical although there are plenty of nicely edited sound bites in this latest special report although i have to say probably an overindulgence on the shorts of soldiers marching through moscow. ideas of north korea but we both live in moscow we know this is not something that we see on a daily basis as whole and i'm afraid the closest we come to seeing any solid evidence that russia was behind the attacks is this. some of it surprisingly simple such as time stamps showing that the hackers were starting and finishing their work duties on moscow time. so. we were going to follow well this is the only the closest we come to a smoking gun as you might say that the hacks took place during. working hours but we live in hope that viewers watching this will realize that most go shares
a time zone with many other cities around the world and also do work nine to five jobs who knowns well we wish them all the best for the. not at all no just one day before the airing of this special report three c.n.n. staff members resigned over and substantiated russia related story which c.n.n. pulled just a few days earlier and the date has snowballed really it went from bad to worse after that a producer for c.n.n. was caught saying that the network's russia coverage was more about ratings then being based on any solid facts now r.t. contacted c.n.n. as you know twenty four oh yeah they haven't got back to his directly but they have issued a public statement coolly shaking off the scandal saying that they stand by this producer and he's entitled to his own personal opinion still given the events of the past week or so perhaps viewers will be watching this latest special report with a more critical eye but now with more details on that latest project veritas leak
. well a video has surfaced of a c.n.n. producer saying that most of their russia trump coverage is well in more polite terms nonsense the point c.n.n. constantly. this is ratings those ratings are razor credible right now but honestly. it's just like. it's mostly the right you know we don't know. john. proof and it's not just one guy from c.n.n. who's saying that there's not much to this story of trump russia collusion and there's no evidence that there was collusion but they couldn't find any evidence of collusion they have no evidence of collusion or there is no evidence of collusion between the russians and the trump campaign and when it comes to the issue of collusion which was the word that was used today you know depends what you know how direct you're talking but at this point what's not proven is the idea of collusion
that's correct still no evidence but the media keeps pushing the story project veritas that leaked the recent video says that c.n.n. has mentioned trump in russia roughly sixteen thousand times you would think people might get bored with the subject by now are you tired of hearing about trump and russia oh yes actually yes that's all i hear about it it's just getting a little tiring we're all exhausted however however it has to be it has to do through has to come out and the truth is that there was interference in the american electorate system but by the sentiment you feel like this is what the american people want to see on t.v. is they want to hear about trump allegedly working with russia. not me not a my friend i think they would that something. if if there is something secret about something people want to know even more so if you just bring it out in the open if there is something you'll come out if it's not then it's just go away and you feel like the media should be reporting on this more or less less i'd like to
hear where these sources are coming from or who's saying it spares i know it could be my next door neighbor they don't have proof they need to drop it now the c.n.n. producer allegedly said that they keep pushing the story because of the ratings however a lot of the americans we spoke to said they'd rather watch something else. r.t. washington d.c. . into that c.n.n. video released by project a white house spokesperson was asked about the other news conference and said it could further undermine trust in the media i think if it is accurate i think it's a disgrace to all of media to all of journalism i think we have gone to a place where. if the media can't be trusted to report the news then that's a dangerous place for america but a bit more about the group that's released this video called project. work has proven highly controversial in the past he's been accused of violating wiretapping
laws and it's facing a million dollar lawsuit released hidden camera conversations with democratic party workers discussing voter fraud the group's also been accused of misleading the public with flawed editing of its videos project dismisses the lawsuit as intimidation we must say we challenge the group's communications director to face on to their controversial tactics this is what he had to say. we weren't specifically looking for this angle but we knew i mean this is a general area we were going we didn't know exactly what would catch we caught it the only way to get to the truth sometimes is with undercover video which has a very rich and long and proud tradition undercover investigations of obtaining the truth and other mechanisms fail people are not going to sit up there and brag on the podium that we're corrupt i'm not expecting a backlash from this particular video because we followed the law we followed what the letter and the intent of the law was how we have tainted we heard that c.n.n.
said that they are going to put out any sort of statement however they're sort of tweeting out some stuff and we're tweeting back at i'm donald trump's tweet we're right in the mix with them right now on twitter obviously we're not going to tell you what's coming up or who it is that targets are but we have many targets in the mainstream media that we are actively working on and we'll have more on c.n.n. coming sometime very soon. house when officials in the u.s. administration under pressure to reveal evidence that led them to claim the syrian military is preparing a chemical weapons attack the state department spokesperson refused to be drooled when she was quizzed about allegations by reporters. but i have evidence to share with us about this potential preparation for the use of chemical weapons because that was an absolutely that right and nor would that be laid out because that would be considered an intelligence matter when you guys believe that it's in your interests you do what you say is evidence or proof of things that involve
intelligence i'm not going to get into that one with you but this is a very serious and grave matter any attacks on the syrian people you know we will be blamed you know on the sea and the russians why not find out who is obviously a complex war with the right number of actors yeah you're right leading isis. seems like a rather a nuanced comment of what wouldn't you find out who exactly you know was responsible. tom france and the u.k. have pledged to support an american attack on syrian government forces despite the lack of evidence of his murder goes the of looks of why washington sees me putting punishment before due process but shah al assad has one really bad habit and that habit is and you need does this when he's winning he ruined everything by doing something really stupid for no reason at all.
like launching a chemical attack on and then consequential village in the middle of nowhere we're going by washington's narrative here by the way take acids army now they're crushing slavek state liberating vast swaths of syria and out of the blue comes this the united states has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the saddam regime as sad knows the probable cause and sequences of a chemical attack it's the only thing really right now that could ruin him by giving his enemies the opportunity of a pretext to attack him why would he do it because he's evil the murderous syrian dictator bashar assad has been a brutal dictator bashar al assad's a murderous regime in syria assad is the worst kind of brutal war criminal a classic super villain boof stupid and evil beyond any logic the kind
of villain batman would go after and america is not mind. if mr assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons he and his military will pay a heavy price britain is already on board if asked how does something really dumb for new reason again the u.k. will join the. u.s. in punishing him we think it's absolutely right if we can to prevent the use of chemical weapons and we will fully support any u.s. action if you've been following events in syria recently you know they aren't kidding the united states has attacked assad five tydings in what they say is self-defense but when they see that they don't actually mean it u.s. troops when never threaten knew they were defending that isis
allies who the syrian army says were never threatened i that the u.s. on that allies to the teeth. we have already started to provide the weapons and equipment in the area nation we said that we would and will continue to provide those two or syrian democratic forces both the syrian arabs and the syrian kurds. the kurds of course are being used by the americans to further american foreign policy and i think it's the kurds to fall into that strategy is to attack other forces which model to the united states and which also loyal to were influenced by saudi arabia and the gulf states and funded by them in order to maintain an ability to undermine militarily the
government of a problem it is just defying the prolonged conflict isn't easy western voters don't want another gun who bombing campaign they learned their lesson after the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions and anything left is to wait for asaad to give them a cause and since he's a comic book supervillain. it's just the parts of the script. to serious matters for missing and philip giraldi says there is no room for speculation when it comes to another potential u.s. strike on syrian government forces particularly in this case you would be i would think compelled to provide evidence because the only basis you have for this is allegations about a plan apparently and also you're basing those allegations on a claim which is quite speculative that there is considerable debate as to whether
the government was indeed involved and indeed the so-called rebels had much more motivation and control the area where these attacks took place just shocking to to have this presented in a way that the u.s. government which is in syria illegally is threatening the legal syrian government and legal syrian government allies iran and russia coming up a fee for corruption scandal countries some big fish and it's net we'll tell you all about it right ahead. well the liberal mainstream media serve up an endless menu of trump bashing in russia gave the democratic party in the so-called resistance continue to lose elections for the attempts to destroy trump at all costs destroying the democrats and undermining the credibility of the liberal mainstream media.
in moscow so not a football and england's world cup big teams been implicated in a corruption scandal over its failed push to host the twenty eight and told them and a fee for reporter also names the former u.k. prime minister david cameron and prince william who apparently at a meeting where a vote swapping was discussed we'll have it award winning sports broadcaster stan collymore following the story this delay there of the russian city of design right now covering the ongoing confederations cup in russia so let's start with the most damning of the allegations which involves south korea now the claim is that the south korean delegate it was the fifth the vice president of the met on the eve. voting in a hotel room the suite of prince william the cambridge that he met with that then u.k. prime minister david cameron and the discussion was that england wanted south korea to vote for them and that the south korean delegate said well we will vote for you if you vote for us in twenty twenty now some people would say that's you scratch my back i'll scratch yours he says that's illegal and it breaks their. feet for pete's
people in the football industry would now understand what that means and you just mentioned it there are scratch your back you scratch more. statute it's illegal quite simply it is illegal so you there are. a job placement now you took it out this is jack warner who's the trinidad and tobago official trinidad and tobago is going to. want to get his claim in the report wanted a friend of the family to be given a placement at tottenham hotspur apparently this happened is that and also you. apparently what was it like when the host nations were announced that it was going to be russia twenty eight hundred twenty twenty two what was the atmosphere when when those were announced it was a very free brawl atmosphere in england media. went crazy to be honest with lots of sports broadcasters lots of journalists talking about. oh well it's not a surprise russia could have oil corrupt countries therefore of course free for
drugs from that a bit more stand just mention that there were lots of allegations at the time levelled russia and cattle when they secured world cup hosting rights but the fee for a poor clears both nations of those accusations its investigation found no proof that any bribes took place international sports attorney david larkin believes the whole process of choosing world cup hosts is flawed. allegations weighed out with or suggested this isn't the only time this happened it suggests that this was one of the many. questionable behaviors that occurred in the midst of the big practices for not only twenty two but twenty points to a so it's just yet more allegations that this process was flawed that the that was out of control and as an organization that should not be allowed to conduct these affairs in secret i think this really is a very inconvenient report that details some of the shady behavior or should waiver
not occurred around the bid process that schieffer tolerate some of them a lot of people in the will wake of this morning may be to find out they've been the victim of a massive global cyber attack the last fifteen twenty hours or so it struck at least ten countries from india to the united states thousands of companies and government agencies have been caught in the run somewhere attack including major energy shipping and banking firms reports first emerged in ukraine and russia yesterday evening they have been the worst hit the latest attack was thought to have been an encrypted run somewhere toulon called pecha which has been used before but subsequently experts then later found out that it had been come some kind of modified version of that they struggle to name it so the best come up with was not that shit wanted just about works miguel francis santiago in the global hiking menace none the less from which no one it seems can hide. industry giants airports and governments no one was apparently safe in the latest mass cyber attack the
plague started in russia and ukraine and spread globally in a matter of hours moscow based oil giant ross sniffed a major advertising firm in the u.k. logistics behemoth moller myers can then mark and prominent companies in spain france and the united states all have fallen under attack by the malware the way it works is it includes everything you have on the computer and then locks it asking for a ransom in the amount of three hundred to five hundred dollars and to infiltrate the system it uses some well known technology allegedly one from the arsenal of the n.s.a. it appeared a little over a month ago when more than a hundred countries came under attack by the ransomware dubbed want to cry major hospitals across the u.s. and the couldn't use their computers businesses went down causing havoc it took around twenty four hours to contain that attack this time the fallout seems to be more modest victims are reporting that little damage has been done so far in the case of russia's rosneft for example oil production wasn't even affected still this
virus has penetrated servers worldwide again and you would think the hackers won't get lucky a third time we go francis and thiago r.t. and you just mentioned the choose to believe by hacking tools developed by america's national security agency which was dumped online in april the national security agency has not acknowledged its tools were used for the want to cry or other attacks however on twitter now will supply edward snowden has condemned the attack asking when the n.s.a. will accept responsibility for the damage. we'll keep you posted. next story recently saudi couldn't relations between the u.s. and the e.u. may have a chance to be restored it seems german chancellor angela merkel has back to washington proposal now to resume talks on the transatlantic trade investment part of the partnership known as te tip last year negotiations ended in deadlock you may
recall covered just as they are asking her to i think we should restart the work on a common free trade agreement between the e.u. and the us because i cannot imagine how we are supposed to solve the numerous problems that have occurred between the us and the e.u. . talks over the divisive and overarching trade deal between europe and the us is likely to be resurrected them in a few months but the team tip agreement arguably faces more hurdles than ever with trade being an increasing weapon of choice now for both sides in recent months. war is the catalyst for innovation and adaptation and changes afoot once again every decision on trade on taxes will be made to benefit american workers protection will lead to greater prosperity and strength it seems the nature of war in the twenty first century is economic and international troops are already breaking down new fronts already opening up both east and west.
president trump's investigation into steel imports on u.s. national security could see imports being shelled but europe is no longer playing mr nice guy with washington then there's a new kid at the terrace of a different kind brace of protectionism is real we will defend europe against those who do not play fight of loops and fight hard for the rights of our exporters. earlier this year president trump threatened to impose a thirty five percent tax on car imports from germany and then washington went on the attack following diesel gape u.s. authorities issued international arrest warrants for former volkswagen treats. the e.u. has now embarked on its own offensive finding a record two point four billion euro fine in google that was based on findings the tech giant on failed instead customers to its own brand and then europe sort consolidate its position google must respect
a simple principle it has to give equal treatment to rival comparison shopping services i'm serious oh so it seems we can forget about this example of a piece of lots of food that i see how. five the negotiations with transatlantic trade investment partnership have gone we need to hurry i'm glad that the american president will support that negotiations of the planet trade and investment partnership would reinforce our larger friends wedding relationship which has been the foundation for prosperity and security the trenches have already been dug in this economic war of attrition we heard from economist and author richard wolfe he told us that u.s. e.u. trade relations are melt right now it's part of an evolving disintegration of the post world war two order in which the united states led and the europeans follow all of that has been changing and is now in the advanced
state of breaking down the growing determination of europe not to exist in the shadow of the united states now made more urgent because the united states with trump is beginning to shape its own independent policy and you're going to see more and more moments of conflict and friction between the united states and europe as opposed to the earlier solidarity around the leadership of the united states stay with us for more on all the big stories of the day blue bus next to me all you watering fine given to google by european regulators know also the two countries i'm officially agreed know each other is nice.
