thanks for joining. us democrats. well in response he's released before. this meeting and one of the e-mails quote very high. information supposedly incriminated presidential candidate hillary clinton. the information was. originating allegedly. now with the job title raised quite a few eyebrows because there was in fact no such official position in russia or the country not being a monarchy and that's not the only confusing aspect to the story as a kid of mine explains the story is like
1:02 am
a rorschach test meaning that everyone sees a different picture and most of the media sees a picture of collusion and treason donald trump son think he was about to get help from a russian lawyer with ties to the kremlin this is looking more and more like treason intent to collude with the russian government all these strange behavior from the president it's all explains now that's not how trump jr sees it he says that nothing of substance was discussed at the meeting which he described as a name nonsense it was such a nothing. there was nothing to tell. and i wouldn't even remembered it until we start scouring through the stuff it was literally just a wasted twenty minutes which was a shame whatever the content was the characters involved with the meeting are certainly worthy of a good moving. everywhere
1:03 am
you go. i'm really tired. we all know her name now and to tell you it's guy at natalia vessel needs sky and italia a vessel at sky a. good story but why does everyone want to link this russian lawyer to the kremlin she works in adoption law and does not work with the russian government and why would the russian prosecutor choose all of these people to deliver sensitive information to the trump camp donald trump jr confirms that this
1:04 am
meeting was a big nothing burger he says she did not have any damaging information on clinton but instead that she wanted to discuss adoption law in the magnitsky act she confirms this. i never knew who else would be attending the meeting all i knew that mr donald trump jr was willing to meet with me do you have connections to grow should go. no further more if this meeting between the trump team in the rushed. boyer's was about handling damaging information on clinton where is this bombshell we have yet to see any bombshell from the trump team about their opponent so after months and months of proof related to russian trump being anticipated we finally have a story that's rather complicated in fact it's so complicated that you can see whatever you want the confirmation bias of the reader can lead the mind's eye to read whatever they want into the story if you're determined to see trump works for the
1:05 am
russians you can see it even though the logical links just don't add up cable mopp and r.t. new york political legal analyst lionel told us that those no substance in the story only the russia making it a point of discussion for the media whenever you hear about this trump meeting always ask the question and because that's what you have to do and that i don't trust junior met with this in and look what we're doing we're talking about what could have been what should have been but we're playing what if in any light from any angle there is nothing that is even remotely almost against the law somebody said treason this there is nothing here but let me tell you what is the saddest part we have been told russia
1:06 am
russia russia russia to such an extent that maybe by virtue of this repetition there's been some kind of a cerebral connection made where people impute to guilt whenever that word is met and i'm not kidding you it's almost like a brainwashing there is absolutely nothing to this story no matter how you look at it from anybody's point of view there is nothing there i think i've made that very clear up. people are starting to return to the iraqi city of mosul after the government declared victory over islamic state in that area on monday however one of the most difficult tasks could still lie ahead as most of mosul has been utterly devastated by nine months of fighting the u.n. says it will take billions of dollars and years to rebuild the city.
1:07 am
according to human rights watch the coalition used a number of weapons that are inaccurate and could be quote unlawfully indiscriminate if used in a heavily populated areas among them are unguarded artillery rockets and mortars artie's nikki erin has more on the story. the liberation of mosul from islamic
1:08 am
state has topped the news cycle over the past few days has been full of praise for the victorious iraqi and coalition forces and pictures of celebration victory over isis in mosul. celebrations in the streets of mosul in battle the iraqi city of mosul is now free of the biggest city in isis the so-called islamic state is in the hands of a blocky troops but against the backdrop of jubilation humanitarian groups crying foul over the plight of locals honesty international issued a fifty page report detailing the extent of civilian suffering calling out in both iraq and the u.s. led coalition forces for repeated violations of international humanitarian law which it says could amount to war crimes honesty says there was a reliance on imprecise weapons and ignorance to the growing civilian death toll
1:09 am
and a failure to adjust tactics to the challenges created by ice still of course you'd never expect much respect for civilian life from the terrorists known for using innocent people as human shields but it seems that those fighting isis somehow turned a blind eye to what they call collateral damage we have already shifted from attrition people probably shelled them from one position to another iraq syria to annihilation to a billion cattle or a fact of life in this sort of situation besides any additional needless deaths can just be blamed on the ruthless enemy anyway according to the u.n. the battle for mosul is left almost nine hundred thousand people displaced more than eight thousand civilians dead or wounded and one hundred thousand children at risk sure it's heartbreaking now but if only way heard about it all sooner well the
1:10 am
neighboring street. all but destroyed the street across rubble the street over there it's the same story wherever you look if they are on you little bit little. shots what i do i got bit by an unfit mother. we were sitting at my uncle's house how rove a mother a mom calls wife went back home because howard was sick and the house was shelled by american planes i tried but i couldn't save how or from the shelling and the is strikes and fahringer to us and there was no it was when it comes to how the battle for mosul will be remembered it is seems these pictures of celebration at the liberation will live on in the media where the civilian suffering will be sufferance in silence. another liberation campaign is underway now as u.s. backed rebels prepare to seize eyesores syrian stronghold of raka the u.n. says between thirty to fifty thousand people are now trapped in that city we
1:11 am
understand almost a two hundred thousand have already been displaced there are some of the stories. i assure you that i actually may get a medal but that is that as well and that is nesmith hazmat but you live on your little niche that actually anybody can do better than have a taste of what else has been and they don't let as you look had no filter and that has become a whole gamut of the. lyneham about them no doubt. about the why not not at all and you know i don't know how to be of course doesn't come to that i mean i . thought he could i mean. that if you haven't met any. one and as a member of you would lay a lot of. showed on his arms to have been at one as a million rock oh it was also very bloody i'm not sure whether the u.s. led coalition will look at the example of most war and realize that
1:12 am
perhaps we should use a lighter taught and so the question that needs to be asked is you know should we use a lighter taught in order to do a better job of safeguarding the population even if that means that we won't be able to put the same kind of problem doing an islamic state or perhaps progress against the group or will be slower. while russia says it's adhering to the agreements reached by presidents putin and trump during the g twenty summit last week in hamburg at the u.s. apparently losing enthusiasm over them the most recent example relates to the process of monitoring the cease fire agreed in syria which had been discussed by the two leaders. the u.s. and russia have committed to monitoring the susanville and ensuring humanitarian access to the areas initially security on these areas will be ensured by russian military police and close cooperation for us and jordan who those monitors will be
1:13 am
i don't know at this point i know we have folks in the region i know that our special envoy to syria is actively engaged in these conversations so i have anticipate we'll get that information in the in the near future the details of the agreement a cease fire in syria which came into force last sunday are just one of the things that he wants government appears to be playing down as jacqueline virgo reports from washington. the highly anticipated biological meeting between donald trump and lot of here putin at the g. twenty summit and with high hopes that the two countries could finally leave all the bad blood behind and see a new stage in relations after the two presidents met in hamburg tillerson came out saying that they had great chemistry they discussed cyber security and the cease fire in syria and were really ready to move forward putin and did discuss that joint cyber security on it but trump has since backtracked on that with a post on twitter after the idea was widely attacked here in washington and about
1:14 am
that cease fire in syria the most important achievement reached by the u.s. and russia in conjunction with jordan moscow has already outlined what role in the suspension of hostilities they will play but america has yet to be clarified and recent reports show that the pentagon was left completely out of the process we reached out to the pentagon to see if they could shed some light on the plan and they in turn said that the state department was the head agency and referred us to them but they also have yet to come up with a solid strategy in terms of who was doing what when where or how some of those details are still being worked out so no real answer there either and the spokeswoman also had a rather strange reaction to russia's foreign minister having made comments about working on a cease fire monitoring station in jordan is there any clarity so far on the monitoring of the syrian cease fire. yesterday as it was going to be done with the united states and jordan from the center and give any more details on that mr lacker likes to talk
1:15 am
a lot and get out ahead i think of some of the negotiations that are underway that is all still being worked out so we're seeing again one step forward two steps back what's becoming the usual u.s. approach to working with russia some of america's partners in europe also pointed out the inconsistency of u.s. policy german government official has lashed out at the u.s. saying its policy is and indecisive back and forth with no clear direction former u.s. diplomat jim trust told us what's behind the mixed signals coming from washington. if the russians believe the americans are talking with two voices that's because we are clearly i think president trump is very sincere in trying to work out some kind of a broader arrangement with moscow and that they he faces tremendous opposition here in washington from people who didn't want this meeting to take place at all or wanted to be at best a pro-forma and shaken pleasantries kind of thing not to affect any substance we have
1:16 am
a lot of people here in the if you will in the deep state who don't want any cooperation with russia at all on anything particularly on syria and there is a huge potential that somebody may try to sabotage it but i have i'm still rather optimistic about rex tillerson goes to the gulf to discuss the situation surrounding qatar news in just a moment. when almost seems wrong. but i'll. just tell all. let me. get to seep out of the attic. and it. equals betrayal.
1:17 am
when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. the trump handshake at the g. twenty is now part of history well their meeting appeared to go well both presidents said so moving forward on this bilateral relationship is problematic. are the u.s. and russia destined to be enemies. could have you with us today the u.s. secretary of state is set to meet with a number of gulf states that cut ties with qatar on tuesday rex tillerson signed an agreement with doha to combat the financing of terrorism and other gulf states like
1:18 am
saudi arabia and egypt of cold the move insufficient to listens visit to doha comes just a month after president trump accused the gulf state of funding extremism together states cut or will do more to track down funding sources or do more to collaborate sure information it will do more to keep the region and are only. the nation of qatar unfortunately has historically been a funder of terrorism. at a very high level to listens aim is to find a compromise between qatar and other gulf states who demand doha qatar alleged ties with terror groups and close news outlets like al jazeera the tiny gulf nation has so far refused to submit to any of the demands but america is more driven by thoughts of reconciliation alone cut out of hosts the biggest u.s. air base in the middle east with eleven thousand troops
1:19 am
a few days after donald trump accused qatar of sponsoring terrorism quote a very high level the us signed a twelve billion dollars deal to sell fighter jets to doha a professor of international law told us that washington is not interested in this within the gulf block the u.s. has an interest in seeing this conflict among the gulf they come to an end because the us. them with the result would be for qatar to throw completely in the hands of turkey and iran the us wouldn't want to see that thought so i think the us would start being more active in finding a solution to the problem than it has been so far. twenty past here in moscow the government has launched a countrywide anti migrant poster campaign depicting george soros the american billionaire as post is being used by the government as soros had called on hungary
1:20 am
to allow more refugees into the country where anti migrant sentiments are strong his call was dismissed by president ordered wins government. the campaign is rym in this interview obsessed darkest hours. these billboards of memories but also saw hatred and fear. and it's not the first time european countries and their leaders have openly denounced the activities of george soros and the polish prime minister allege that soros was violating the polish constitution well i for my macedonian leader said soros was meddling all around the world we spoke to an international affairs commentator who supported those fears
1:21 am
complaints about george entirely justified because we see in his behavior somebody who is has got a will to power and if he doesn't like the results of a democratic election he will do his best to topple that democratic government so for example in the case of hungary clearly pursuing a nationally or unsaid policy and that government knows that it will be targeted sooner or later by solar for daring to pursue a national policy rather than a sort of policy in essence what george soros is about is the complete opposite going to persist of democracy he has money which he uses to buy power and influence by creating organizations which he tells what to do and they tell the world what to do and what to think he talks about transparency but everything he does is veiled in secrecy he talks about democracy but he seeks to overthrow democratically elected governments just because he doesn't like them this is a kind of megalomania on a james bond villain scale and it really should be stopped. well the israeli
1:22 am
foreign affairs ministry was also quick to release its own statement on this issue condemning the actions of george soros both in hungary and also in israel we discussed the situations in both countries with an israeli political activist sources very hostile towards israel and here was the it kind of situation in the hungry because it was sorest did he supported all kinds of what we call orange revolutions which on the surface were very peaceful mother then of the day we saw these blood spilled in the ukraine blood spilled in beliefs in many other places where soros put his fingers as you know now the reason compan in the united states that russia meddle in the us elections i don't assemble they're talking about the united states government invested money and in undermining israeli prime minister during the campaign they do it openly and they
1:23 am
interfere they madeline and then the queues others of doing i mean this is kind of the popular see which needs to be solved and we agree with the government of one hundred garrion when they want to say stop stop. and what george or soros is allegedly doing is also not going on noticed in the u.s. in fact back in march this year several republican senators attempted to launch a probe into where taxpayers' money ends up being sent to george soros as organizations but the initiative was actually rejected despite a collective letter sent to the secretary of state rex tillerson all right well thanks for joining us so far here on r.t. international coming up next here the film puerto rico anger on the island but if you're joining us from the u.k. or other parts of the world our larry king joining you shortly.
