a former u.s. intelligence chief says meddling is in the russia's d.n.a. therefore it's proof enough that moscow continues to infiltrate american politics the comment came in a new c.n.n. documentary just there we'll tell you all about it. coming up two 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 attack. a prime minister david cameron and prince william implicated in a corruption scandal over england's failed bid for the twenty eighteen world cup according to a long awaited faithful report out. i
really want to run the world very good morning for me kevin owen it's just turned eleven in the morning here in moscow this wednesday the twenty eighth of june you're watching the international first meddling is in russia's d.n.a. says the former director of u.s. intelligence james clapper that proves he goes on to say that moscow is still making attempts to influence american politics he was appearing in a new documentary aired by america's c.n.n. news channel in primetime just but six hours ago is there any reason to believe that russia is not right now today continuing to attempt to or to infiltrate u.s. political organizations or individuals or records through or. i think it's in their d.n.a. . were there in the soviet era or no. karen join me in the studio just a bit earlier to explain whether there was actually a smoke. here this story is 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 sixteen 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 stephen was going to lift the lid on all of these unverified source is and then substantiated claims it's used in the past to russia 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 ominous 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 is the us. story inside bush speech that would lead to doorstep as 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 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 kind of evidence some of it surprisingly simple such as time stamp showing that the hackers were starting and finishing their work duties on moscow time 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 to no news just one day before the. airing off this special report three
c.n.n. staff members resigned over an absent substantiated pressure related story which c.n.n. poll just a few days earlier and but they just snowballed when it went from bad to worse off to that a producer for c.n.n. was saying that the network's russia cuffe which was more about ratings then being based on any solid facts with more details on the 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 and more polite terms nonsense the point c.n.n. constantly. this is ratings this ratings raiser at all 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 there is
no evidence that there was collusion but they couldn't find any evidence of collusion 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 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 the truth has to come out and the truth is that that there was interference in the american electorate system but by putin 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. that something. is 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 and 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 cable mopp and aren't seeing washington d.c. . for a second to the c.n.n. video released by project veritas this was in the last twenty four the network has issued a statement saying that they stand by the producer and they say they welcome diversity of opinion white house spokesperson was asked about it at
a news conference and said it could further on the mind though 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 now that 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 the group that released the video is called project. proved highly controversial in the past it's been accused for instance of violating wire topping laws it's also 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 florida added to give its videos project a very dismissive that lawsuit is intimidation must be said to we challenge the group's communications director on the controversial tactics nonetheless we weren't specifically looking for this angle but we mean this is the general area we were
going we didn't know exactly what we would catch we caught it the only way to get to the truce or. times 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 a.t.o. 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 now and i'm 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. still but now this morning and interest will come beating t.v. has been implicated in a corruption scandal over its failed push partly to host the twenty eight hundred
to one a month a fee for report also names former u.k. prime minister david cameron and prince william who apparently at a meeting with votes open was discussed let's try and put some meat on the bones of this just as it is across in london for us it's a big old report this these are some pretty big names being implicated by fifo what's backing it up tell us a bit more about it. well kevin this report is really a gift that keeps on giving because it highlights all sorts of football related drama and scheming really showing how much interest and all sorts of negotiations that had gone on behind closed doors leading up to the decision making process of who would get the world cup of twenty eighteen and twenty twenty two which of course as we know ended up going to russia and qatar now this document is over four hundred pages long it was finished three years ago and it's a two year investigation into what exactly unraveled and the reason it's being
released now is because there's been talk of german newspaper build releasing the leaked documents that it had obtained so fifo went ahead and published this paper now you would assume that traditionally of course russia would be the root of all evil at the center here but actually in this particular report what we've seen is that aura races all sorts of. sort of allegations or rumors about taking away russia's world cup it of twenty eighteen so russia is fine but in this particular case it's included that's getting to blush to see the least because of some of the highlighted details in this report of a certain things they were considering and attempts to court. officials to get that big which of course again they didn't so some of those details are quite curious there was an explanation and a story surrounding how david cameron had allegedly met with south korean officials
in suites that belong to prince william to potentially discuss swapping each other's votes that's certainly something that's been highlighted by the reports that england and south korea were negotiating this and it was described as something that would have been quote in violation of anti collusion rules there was apparently also discussions of executives being interested in meeting the queen. in return for social a certain appreciation of england's behavior england officials were asked for an honorary knighthood for one of the thief executives they got a job for a son of a friend i mean really there are so many things highlighted in this report and with all the talk of you know fair play and games this is certainly a report that didn't put england in the best of lights it has to be said that of course none of this ended up working out in the end and other countries are also implicated in this report but it is quite curious to take a look at some of the highlights in that. speedo most morning.
next fills in the us administration pressured to reveal evidence that led them to claim the syrian military is preparing a chemical weapons attack the state department spokesperson refused to be drawn when she was quizzed about the allegations by reporters. evidence share with us about this potential preparation for the use of chemical weapons because that was an absolutely 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 it's evidence of. intelligence i'm not going to get into that with you but this is a very serious and grave matter any attacks on the syrian people you know blamed you know on the sea and the russians why not find out who is obviously a complex war with over
a number of factors yes you're right leading isis. seems like a rather a nuanced comment what wouldn't you find out who exactly you know was responsible. well he was proof for not france and the u.k. anyway have pledged to support an american attack on syrian government forces despite the lack of evidence next artie's murder. why washington seems to be putting punishment before due process. but shah saad 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 consequences 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 booth 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 us 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 knew they aren't kidding the united states has attacked asaad five times in what they see is self defense but when they see that they don't actually mean it u.s. troops were never threatened knew they were defending their isis allies who the syrian army says were never threatened i that the u.s. are now allies to the teeth we have already started to provide the weapons and
equipment in the area mission that we said that we would and will continue to provide those two or syrian democratic forces both the syrian arizona syrian kurds . the kurds of course being used by the americans to further american foreign policy and i think it's. fallen 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 the problem is justifying the prolonged conflict isn't easy western voters don't want another gung who bombing campaign they learn their lesson after the first few times the international community sick of reckless
interventions that you only thing left is to wait for asaad to give them a cause and since he's a comic book supervillain well it's just the parts of the script. we're reporting that former cia officer philip giraldi told us there's 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 eighty minutes plus live in the morning here in moscow that's what eighteen minutes past four in the morning in new york city question is could have meant i could be waking up to some massive cyber attack this morning said the at least ten countries last evening when hit by a massive it we'll tell you all about it after this break. people with stories to tell. so. they're here to speak for you there to hear.
what politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. for something that's. actually going to be this is what before three of the people. interested in the walk. again i'm kevin owen so were you affected by a massive global cyber attack struck at least ten countries from india to the united states thousands of companies and government agencies were caught up in this
run somewhere attack there may be a bit more to come as well this morning including major energy shipping banking firms hit reports first emerged in ukraine and russia which have been confirmed to be the worst hit the latest attack there was thought to have been an encrypted run somewhere to which has been used before but cybersecurity experts later found that it had been a kind of a modified version although they struggled to name it so they called it not. good try mikhail francis said the go on the global menace next them from which it appears no one 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 nafta 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 you 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 you would think the hackers won't get lucky a third time we don't francis and thiago are to. use a cyber attack policeman by hacking tools developed by america's national security
agency as we heard there from a girl which were dumped in april the national security agency has not acknowledged its tools were used in the want to cry or other attacks but on twitter whistleblower edward snowden has condemned the this latest one asking that the n.s.a. will accept responsibility for the damage. other news a leading human rights watchdog a slammed the united states removing two countries from a list of governments that use child soldiers itself the state department published its annual line oppose offend the nations with only eight on the base those countries are excluded from certain forms of u.s. military assistance. tillerson reportedly overruled state department officials to get iraq and. sometimes so-called burma removed from the latest blacklist the move drew criticism from human rights watch them which previously cried foul over the use of child soldiers in both iraq and. here's what the director of the group
children's rights division told us the new list is unfortunately a lie it's saying that burma and iraq have no child soldiers were in fact we know that it's a continuing problem political calculations are probably at play here and we're urging congress to ask questions about what the process is that state department used to come up with the list this year the significance of this list is that any country that's on it can be subject to u.s. military sanctions and in fact the withholding of military financing and military training has influence countries in the past to make real progress on ending the use of child soldiers but by leaving burma afghanistan and iraq off the list altogether the u.s. is losing its leverage and these countries have no incentive to address the problem . before the next the red faces a berlin this police department after hundreds of officers deployed to help secure next month's g twenty summit in hamburg was sent home early after reports of wild
partying is peter all over with more. just over two weeks germany will be conducting one of the biggest security operations in its recent history as the g twenty summit arrives in hamburg police from all over the country is being drafted in but it's one particular group from right here in berlin that hit the headlines. police informed us that hundreds of forces did not behave properly there and therefore they send them back to berlin it's alleged that as many as three hundred officers are being sent home after excessive partying at the former refugee center that they were being housed in base included scenes of heavy drinking sex and public urination the german tabloid newspaper billed how some pictures of just before the party got really out of hand as you can imagine police chiefs involved
in organizing humbug less than happy the forces are back in berlin with the sanction the police commander has made it very clear that this kind of behavior by officers is unacceptable the police will now start a further examination of all facts and circumstances the scale of consequences following the incident will be a result of these examinations while police getting caught letting their let's face it just about everything else down may seem like a bit of a giggle the security operation for the g twenty is a huge deal the terrorist threats in europe is at its highest for a generation the highest in the past twenty years the g twenty meeting in hamburg is of course a potential target for terrorists like any other important public event as thousands of demonstrators are getting ready to descend on how membered for the g. twenty and with the terror threat across europe remaining high this scandal couldn't have come at a worse time peter all of. our typical follow stories twenty four seven i'm kevin
zero in fact so watch. between now and then. the first between the rich and the poor are laid bare in a program called. oil. while 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 are the attempts to destroy trump at all costs destroying the democrats undermining the credibility of the liberal mainstream media.
this is going underground is to raise amazing girls power in the u.k. by bringing one hundred million pounds of taxpayers' money each to ten of still protestant m.p.'s yes that's one billion pounds or one point three billion dollars coming up the show we speak to the man the bad boys of rex it's called the best referendum fighter in the u.k. about why the tories have gone all soft out of our breakfast at negotiations in brussels this week from shutting down the freedom of the press to cutting ties with iran contra wells bush and gulf states for ending economic warfare we look at how money makes right global means nato governments funding tyrants from the headlines the billion pound bung which is building
a bridge into troubled waters while yemen's troubles fever pitch literally all the civil war coming up in today's going underground but first. corporate media were quick to downplay the weekend's demonstrations in east london protesting the death of a young black father known as that sent off to detention by british police allegations of institutional racism in britain's media let alone law enforcement agencies continue arguably to be hushed up the u.k. police regulator the independent police complaints commission said at the air duck costa known as it soon became unwell during a police operation the i.p.c.c. even before they've investigated the death is concerned about what they call the very dangerous consequences of what they say has been a rapid spread of false and potentially inflammatory information on social media rioting broke out on sunday night that being said he has direct campbell one of the police regulators commissioned this thing to do in the past of not being really
good. we've made some mistakes and people remember those things and they hold on to those things all this went wrong in the past but what we try to what we try to do now in a way that we're moving forward he said that we recognize that what the i.p.c.c. is critics might ask is whether they recognize the don't one u.k. police officer has been convicted for any of the thousands of deaths in british police custody since the late one nine hundred sixty s. unlike in the us a way us police have actually been convicted and where awareness of institutional racism in law enforcement is growing not least because of events like the acquittal of a police officer who did this to an innocent man a warning the next step is graphic and disturbing that can footage. that was. lucky for them.
