for joining us on international we have. well the us the democrats and the media have rounded on donald trump's son over a meeting he held last year with a russian lawyer in response he's released the full e-mail exchange from june twenty sixth relating to this meeting now one of the emails off was quote a very high level and sensitive information the supposedly incriminated presidential candidate hillary clinton and might be of use to trump sr the information was claimed to be based on a some official documents ultimately a region ating though allegedly from some quote crown prosecutor of russia that job title though has a chilly raised a few eyebrows so only in the media now the issue is because ultimately the
official opposition in russia the country is not a monarchy and there are other confusing aspects of the story as well as caleb maupin now investigates the story is like 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. no i wouldn't even remember that 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. every
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 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 chicago. know furthermore if this meeting between the trump team in the russian lawyers was about handling damaging. from ation 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 russians you can see it even though the logical links just don't add up cable mopp and r.t. new york a political and legal analyst lionel told us the substance of the story only the buzzword 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 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 the area on monday however one of the most difficult tasks could still lie ahead as most of mosul has been devastated by nine months of fighting the u.n. says it will take billions of dollars and many years to rebuild the city.
if used in heavily populated areas among them are unguided artillery rockets and mortars and nicky aaron reports. the liberation of mosul from islamic 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 and 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 lucky 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 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 eisel somehow turned a blind eye to what they call collateral damage we have already shifted from attrition probably shove them from one position to another iraq syria to annihilation tactics two billion casualties 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 which heard about it all sooner well
the neighboring street. all but destroyed the street across rubble the street over there it's the same story wherever you look at play on your little bit little. shop as well had your garbage comment 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 howard from the shelling and the is strikes and i was still fahringer to us and there was no life was when it comes to how the battle for mosul will be remembered it 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 eisold syrian a stronghold of raka u.n.
says between thirty to fifty thousand people are trapped there and almost two hundred thousand have already been displaced here are some of the stories. i assure you that actually i'm a little metal but that is that as well and that is nesmith has met but you have on your little niche that actually you anybody can do better to have a taste of what else has been and the dome that has if you had the field and then she would have moved on and i did have the. lyneham about them no doubt. about that but i'm not. at all and you know i don't know how to be a court of claims that i may have. thought. much of that. at the height of your government any you know. what i did as a member of you would lay a lot of. show down as i'm still haven't been up to one as a million i do think that rocco it was also very bloody i'm not sure whether the u.s. coalition will look at the example of most war they don't think that the u.s.
slowed coalition needs you everything possible to make sure that its target selection is very discriminator and that it focuses to the extent possible of islamic state fighters but models or is any indication that rocco is going to get love. while russia says it said herring to the agreements reached by presidents putin and trump during the g twenty summit last week the u.s. is apparently losing enthusiasm over them at 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 cease fire and i'm sure humanitarian access to the areas initially security on these races will be ensured by russian this is a trip of close cooperation for us and jordan who those monitors will be 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 anticipate we'll get that information in and then your future. the details of the agreed ceasefire in syria which came into force last sunday are just one of the things the u.s. government appears to be playing down as reports from washington. the highly anticipated biological meeting between donald trump and vladimir 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 in it but trump has since backtracked on that with a post on twitter after the idea was widely attacked here in washington and about 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 that 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 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 but some of america's partners in europe have also a point about the inconsistency of america's russia policy a german government official has lashed out at the u.s. saying its policy is quote an indecisive back and forth with no clear direction. former u.s. diplomat jim truss told us what's behind the mixed see 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 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 handshake and pleasantries kind of thing not to affect any substance we have 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 am still rather optimistic well thanks for joining us here on r.t. international for the program so many stories still coming your way including a jewel which soros sees are getting in trouble with hungary and now israel after being accused of meddling in elections old around the world will be discussing this story in just a moment. what
politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. let you go right to be prosperous what will before three of them or ten people that . i'm interested in the waters of our. first sit. thanks for joining us the one darian government has launched a countrywide anti migrant post a campaign depicting george soros the american billionaire as persona is being used
by the government as early as soros had called on hungry to allow more refugees into the country where anti migrant sentiments are strong his call was dismissed by president obama's government. the campaign is room in this interview absurd darkest hour as. these billboards of memories but also saw hatred and fear. although israel's ambassador to hungary initially criticized that campaign tel aviv quickly released a clarification condemning the actions of soros a both and a hungry and in israel we discuss the situations in both countries with an israeli
activist. saurus is very hostile towards israel and here was the it kind of situation in hungary because it was sorest did he supported all kinds of what we call orange revolutions which on the surface was very peaceful mother there 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 and then they interfere or they meddle and then the queues others of doing i mean this is kind of the property which needs to be solved and we agree with the government of one hundred garrion when they want to say stop stop and sources
alleged meddling is also becoming a concern in the united states back in march this year several republican senators attempted to launch a probe into where taxpayers' money ends up after being sent to george soros as n.g.o.s but the initiative was rejected despite a collective letter sent to the secretary of state rex tillerson now hungary is not the only european country to openly denounce the activities of george soros the polish prime minister has alleged that soros has violated the polish constitution while a former macedonian leader said soros using his n.g.o.s has been meddling all across the world we spoke to an international affairs commentator who supports those views . 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 inside policy and that government knows that it will be targeted sooner or later by soros for daring to pursue a national policy rather than a sort of policy in essence what george soros is about is the complete opposite if this is a 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. a legal controversy is brewing in america that's after new hampshire's attorney general launched an investigation into a case where an immigrant was cleared of six counts of domestic violence by a local court will gustin bahati thirty three year old refugee from the congo was
arrested in august last year after here legibly assaulted a pregnant woman several times over he was released the following month after his lawyer raise doubts on whether behati was legally fit to stand trial in march this year the suspect was cleared of all charges are for a local prosecutor found he to be culturally incompetent we discuss this case and its ramifications with the antiwar activist daniel schorr and conservative writer mike trout an average. people are afraid now in america to say you're in america welcome to america we have certain values we have certain rules on place if you say that you might be xenophobic right so the city prosecutor didn't want to be seen. and because of that he decided to let somebody off on the cultural relativism defense so this is the end result of political correctness and cultural marxism and the social justice warrior ism run amok mexicans and muslims and foreigners and
immigrants to this country. every day this spate of hate crimes that have did this country. sort of think this is some of the environment of in bracing immigrants is ridiculous when hate crimes are on the rise and just for being mexican you can be terror a lot of these hate crimes do end up being hoaxes the flip side is there's just a lot of hate in the world and there's a lot of hate in humanity if i walk down a street in a certain neighborhoods in new york as a white person i would face racism from other cultures it doesn't sound like you feel safe to visit new york we feel bad for ron paul mike certain of it but mike you put forth a very grim pessimistic view of humanity is though somehow hate were a natural thing honor killings cannot come to america domestic battery cannot be normalized abusing women and genital mutilation of children cannot be allowed that's individual responsibility sure but as a culture we have to send
a message and we can't be afraid to say that this is america this is the west and we don't do things the way a lot of other people do in the rest of the world a lot of so many people come to america it's not because america is the greatest place in the world is because people have been diffused and they've been robbed of their opportunities whether it's in the dominican republic go in brazil or in the middle east because of us foreign policy and u.s. interventionism we do have a mass we should be trying to help these other countries creating save zones in other countries but if you're going to come to america there cannot be a cultural defense. ok it's ok to hit my wife. thank you joining us here on r.t. international with your wednesday headlines here on this trial coming up next what the hopes.
fears of people have been saying about redacted in the us actually just pull on. the show i go out of my way to you know. really packed a punch. john oliver a party america is doing the same we are apparently better than. the c. people you've never heard of. back to the night president of the world bank a. seriously he sent us an e-mail.
to trump handshake at the g. twenty is now part of history well the meeting appeared to go well both presidents said so moving forward on this bilateral relationship is problematic best are the u.s. and russia destined to be enemies. greetings and salutation. you cannot have a revolution without dancing and you cannot have dancing without music revolution will always and forever be intertwined with music because most often it's the musician the poet who channels the rhymes and heart beats of change that
often starts as a soft a logic whisper creeping out from the underground and then question nose into a grand opera of cultural change and up evil and that intertwined history is why the musician will always be an agent. or instrument if you will change their lyrics and melodies can shine a light on the injustices and bring attention to the under-represented and even helped bring down the giants themselves. today let's find out what comes first the revolution or the music as watching the hawks strikes a chord if you want to would know that you see the. real that is what you. analyze it to. see if you speak. with. free will still in this world.
