8:02 pm
a very good attorney general is a very highly respected and we'll see what happens but there's no collusion. there was no collusion there was no obstruction there was no nothing it appears that this bob mole report is a bit of a failure it hasn't turned up any big indictments related to russia collusion it's been two years long but we've already heard democratic party leaders talking about other options they have for keeping the scandal scandalous allegations related to trump and russia alive now adam schiff a democrat in congress recently floated this idea for keeping the story going i certainly agree that the counterintelligence investigation may be more important than the criminal investigation because it goes to present threat to our national security whether the president and anybody around him a compromised by foreign power there's been many occasions in which the u.s. public was told that some kind of bombshell or groundbreaking revelation was about to be revealed but it seems that two years the report has finally concluded and
8:03 pm
people are waiting to see what is made public from that report after the u.s. attorney general makes that decision. can now hear from often very u.s. presidential hopeful for that if it's hereon party nice to have you with us on the program mr vera now the justice department says malaria is not recommending any new indictments in the trump russia probe so does it doesn't sound like no evidence of criminal wrongdoing has been uncovered here. what we've seen so far has been basically a joke this whole thing was supposed to find a russia russian colu zhen and so far all the indictments all the guilty pleas and there have been guilty pleas and all the people found guilty in court have been found guilty of things better other than russian collusion so they've been found guilty of all kinds of things you know obstruction just whatever but not of the actual thing this was supposed to be a big whole thing though is going to under under uncover some connection between
8:04 pm
trump and russia this big scary thing and it turns out. just a bunch of petty usual nonsense just normal politics there's nothing here of substance now listen i think should not be present i think i should be president he should but this is not rush inclusion this is a waste of time effort and energy. you have right now the attorney general is revering the documentable decide which parts to release to the public so how much do you think we're going to get to see of that document. we should see all of it i mean there's no unless there's some really strong reason to doubt it because this whole thing seems to be of such minor nickel and dime zero important stuff we should see all of it i don't think there's any reason to hold any of it back i think the entire report should be released the public what will actually see it will probably come out in bits and pieces and my hope is that if the whole report is not released voluntarily it all comes out in wiki leaks. and the house
8:05 pm
intelligence committee chairman i don't shift says they now needs to be a new counter intelligence investigation into whether trump has been compromised by a foreign power was your view on that. it is just basically indicative of two things one just childish partisan bickering to the only reason that such a thing even even anyone would take it seriously is because the us has come the overinvolved itself in other countries where it has no business being if this was happening in switzerland people would they say that's a big joke why would any country try to meddle this was elections with sorts which really doesn't affect affect anyone else the only reason that this carries even adult drop of weight is that the us has become overinvolved what the us need to be doing right now is not wasting time with this we need to leave nato we stopped
8:06 pm
getting involved other countries private business we stop pretending to be the policemen of the world we need to bring the troops home. most of them off cut our taxes and mind our own business and then these types of allegations won't really capture the imagination because they'll be seen as instead of just maybe untrue as utterly absurd so now we've come to the end of this highly anticipated two year mother probe do you expect the whole trump russia saga to drag on nevertheless. absolutely i mean when you put this much is just like if you put this much effort into an advertising campaign you don't just drop the advertising campaign it's it's energized a lot of you know the devil of a lot of the democratic base who who is it's give them excuse to basically say you know trump is this really dangerous evil person and so the democrats are going to try to drag this out as much as possible in politics often suspicion is almost as
8:07 pm
good as you know legally proven guilt so i expected or at democrats will drag this out as much as they possibly can if the democrats were serious about ending any possibility of foreign collusion though the democrats would be calling for a withdrawal from nato saying bring the troops home they would be doing things like opposing trump when he wants to not want to bring the troops out of syria those are the things that show that the democrats are really serious about this either both democrats and republicans right now are trying to get the u.s. military the u.s. government involved where it has no business you know only libertarians are saying shut down this foreign military operation stop in the world police bring the troops home and cut taxes and the of environ libertarian party presidential candidate thank you for joining us on the program. trump has told the u.s. treasury to cancel the latest sanctions against north korea this comes after the north reportedly pulled that stuff out of the into korea liaison office the main
8:08 pm
communication channel between pyongyang and so. north korea informed us this morning that it would pull out its staff from the liaison office on instructions from a superior authority and it would through its staff the north said it doesn't mind the south remaining in the office and that it will not be fight on further practical matters in the future our government finds the north decision regrettable and it is hoped that the north returns its staff to the liaison office for normal operation as it was agreed between the two countries. trans olive branch to north korea has been widely viewed as an attempt to rescue the ongoing nuclear talks it comes a month after negotiations between trump and kim jong un collapsed at a summit in vietnam trying to discuss the latest developments with my colleague you know neal. that lee is office it was only set up you know last year was and it's not widely known just prick it done what it actually does the creation the setting
8:09 pm
up of this office was this little baby step towards reunification towards closer ties and we know that when it comes to the things happening on the korean peninsula and the baby step is important as you said it was only set up six months ago after that historic visit south korea's president to pyongyang you remember when he was waving hands to all the public and the streets it was really seen as a historic breakthrough moment in the office was intended for these kind of face to face contacts not on the highest level but in between some sort of officials and diplomats which used to be rare but now it looks like this will have to be put on hold for a while maybe for good we don't know if baby steps but important steps all the same office that's what it was designed to do what i would end the any indication of your as to why north korea has pulled its officers that north korea hasn't
8:10 pm
officially announced that this was drawl was happening so we don't really know what the reason is what we do know is that it happened right after the americans decided to punish two chinese companies for doing business with gang and diplomats in beijing have already called this kind of thing unacceptable they believe that these kind of moves should only be made after some sort of decisions by the u.n. so there you have it after the donald trump. summit in one noise this was the first action taken by washington against north korea and anyone who is dealing with it and you know all this thaw and all these friendship between donald trump and chairman kim they may end up being absolute. irrelevant when the u.s. sanctions alarm goes off and i'll tell you what officials in north korea have recently said that they aren't feeling that americans were making any steps to
8:11 pm
loosen their stranglehold when it comes to all this pressure on north korea each of you know if the united states was not interested in improving with career u.s. relations or implementing the june twelfth joint declaration rather it was only trying to produce results for political achievement i will make this clear the forceful stance of the u.s. will certainly make the situation more dangerous i was supreme leadership can clarify its decision soon the u.s. president loves to brag about how great he is making all these moves towards peace on the korean peninsula but as you've said in her noyo there was no peace agreements i know there's a failure was no essentially well essentially rise you say but nothing sign there and it appears that kim jong il didn't bend under all this might of donald trump's
8:12 pm
diplomatic skills and now it looks like the dollar from the ministration is at a crossroads they should decide whether they want to continue to play that role as a great peacemaker for korea or they want to go back to the role of the bad cop who keeps lobbying everyone around the world with sanctions and analysts are up to told us donald trump is trying to reduce the negative impact of sanctions against north korea. we'll then i think a couple of weeks we will hear back from the north korean side as to how they would like to proceed for the the ball really resides on the north korean side on hold they will respond after hanoi and i think donald trump is going a little bit out a little out of his route to ensure that he doesn't mess things up u.s. north korea talks very delicate fears are the spoiling of time north korea essentially has to get back to the u.s. how it wants to go forward and dark rum doesn't want to do that in
8:13 pm
a negative direction by imposing a new whole set of sanctions and that's why he's kind of trying to ensure that at least a bullied or two leader level there's good communication and a good relationship because he believes north korea is a top down society and of kim jong un can take that strategic decision which he needs to make it will unlock the door of very positive relationship and positive denuclearization related negotiations. the u.n. human rights council has called for holtz to israeli settlement expansion in the golan heights a day after donald trump pledged to recognize the disputed area as part of israel the region was seized from syria back in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven after fifty two years it's time for the united states to fully recognize israel sovereignty over the golan heights which is a critical strategic security importance the state of israel and regional stability israeli prime minister welcomes the move and thanks donald trump and surprisingly
8:14 pm
syria has a very different view its foreign ministry said trans decision changes nothing and the syrian people would do whatever it takes to reclaim the golan heights. russia's foreign ministry also condemns the proposal saying such a move would violate a number of un resolutions and germany and france that they are opposed to any unilateral measures wealth to middle east experts where the situation could lead. it seems that donald trump now is the spokesman for netanyahu and he is intervening in the israeli election and he would like to win this election so i wouldn't be surprised when he meet him in the white house next week next which is the i think you will give him a huge prism which is the mission of the israeli sovereignity or. totally cynically it's breaking all the international rules and international law i
8:15 pm
mean there isn't the whole one in the world i guess who has any doubts about the legal to start to sort of the golan heights they would have heights is an occupied territory no doubts about this and here comes an american president and say no matter what the international law says no me towards the would say is we recognize it is an israeli city because israel holds it for so many years so why not. if we're for all this. really raises a lot of questions about a lot of other occupations all over the world. in reaction to last week's mosque shootings in new zealand the country's largest bookstore chain is revising was on its shelves placing a ban on one of its best seller lists twelve rules of life is sold over three million copies worldwide it covers a wide range of topics from discipline and responsibility to the psychology of mass
8:16 pm
shooters the story of defended his decision saying it didn't want what it could extremely disturbing material circulating in the wake of the attack and it may be connected to this photo showing all the jordan peterson wearing a t. shirt with i am a proud islamophobia however it seems some other controversial books don't fall under the same criteria. headless mine count still available on the shop's website the which calls chain is not alone in putting a ban on jordan peterson's works cambridge university in the u.k. has revoked its offer of a visiting fellowship to the author as a result of a student backlash saying there's no place for people who don't uphold its policies and saturday is going underground on r.t. children peterson calls the decision unprofessional and cowardly well i think it says more about the nature of the universities in general than about free speech in
8:17 pm
general i mean i don't feel that my decision vin taishan has compromised money free speech ability because i have so many platforms on which i can discuss my ideas but i think that it was handled in the none believe a bully unprofessional shoddy and cowardly way i mean i was never even notified formally that this invitation occurred i found out about it through the grapevine and i have no will still have no real explanation for why it happened. only able to surmise the reasons i think that our guy was in cambridge in november and i did a very popular talk there and there was lots of student interest and interest out the. divinity as well and i was really looking forward to working with the experts there on biblical issues i thought it would have been a very good collaboration for everyone given the popularity of the biblical lecture
8:18 pm
series i did a year ago and i think it's i think it's sad so to come to read the maze breaks it strategy is in turmoil after the e.u. summit story and well after the break. we still cannot protect the maritime border the number of trespassers on the on the land border between turkey and greece is increasing so there's a threat of a next big wave because the policy of european union is still kind of considered as an invitation in the minds of the those people already know in the situation that they can make a decision to leave and to come to europe. in a world of big partisan lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever
8:19 pm
we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the bad and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. welcome back the u.k. prime minister to resign may has admitted that she may not attempt to push her brags it deal through parliament for a third time due to a lack of support as also the european union approved a short delay to bragg's it as a summit on thursday night despite all the incessant see the european council president sounded upbeat. really though this development the fate
8:20 pm
of bridget. and social our british friends. as a you. are the worst. told for the best. as you love. of the day so i asked after a seemingly endless night of debate discussion and chopping and changing plans that you council did finally come up with that official proposal for to reason may come though with quite strict terms and conditions an extension of article fifty until the twenty second of may conditional upon her passing a plan through parliament a further extension until the twelfth of april conditional upon the u.k. coming up with some sort of roadmap a plan as to what exactly to do and the possibility of yet another further as yet indefinite extension conditional upon the u.k. participating in european parliamentary elections that is something to reason may
8:21 pm
has said is a red line for her and would of course be rather pointless given the u.k. has decided to leave the european union in the press conference this morning donald tusk was quite clever with his wording he stated that anything is possible that they're hoping for the best and hope dies last we know what that means of course would this proposal leave council has moved the paradigms of this debate right away from the prospect of a no deal hard bricks that further towards the possibility of a deal further extensions or even the possibility of revoking article fifty and the u.k. staying in the european union as donald tusk said to one journalist in that conference he's more pro british than the journalist is nevertheless though the long hours of those debates seemingly did take that's all a little bit on that press conference last night.
8:22 pm
do is be able to agree still an extension until the. twentieth of april of two of the folks who. live in the yes. on to the very end. i. think to our poll. and those still empty in the end it means that that a lot of space. i will leave you officials patience isn't endless though chris said that kicking the can down the road isn't an option because the road in perspective is a short one and this was something echoed by german chancellor angela merkel that.
8:23 pm
we have for the time being prevented and no deal brax it on the twenty ninth of march but these a very short periods of time so britain have to make clear what path that wishes to pursue you so it's official you can master to the e.u. said tim borrow has written to the council accepting their proposal and now it's all eyes away from brussels back to westminster words the reason may will try to pass her plan and nobody really knows what's going to happen in parliament next week what we can say for sure is that it's shaping up to be one of the most crucial weeks in the house of commons in decades if not in generations can the reason may get lucky and get her deal passed through the house of commons or this time next week will we once again be in some sort of political limbo stay tuned to find out. andre walker who's a u.k. based columnist for the new york observer stays to reason may has almost no chance of getting her break that deal through parliament. there is no realistic prospect
8:24 pm
of. withdrawal deal passing i think everybody knows that if you look at what happened yesterday in brussels there was a very short discussion about extending article fifty to allow the law to last to go through to pass withdrawal agreements sounds pretty easy the longer and harder pay for the european council members was to think about what happens if indeed when how withdrawal agreements is defeated next week i think the big difficulty for this actually is not so much on the withdrawal agreement the problem is that parliament cult decides what it wants it's not going to support a no deal preg you know a genuine legitimate preg said we leave a w t o rules doesn't want that it can't possibly value though it would dearly love to and so then it's a group of graybeards where the where the i think the public politicians get together is they will try and find out how much of the e.u. can we keep the public aid i'm still get away with it at the moment i don't know exactly how much either is i'm hoping it zero but how you just got to watch this
8:25 pm
space. students at king's college london had claimed they were barred from attending classes but it because of their pride palestine activism they were told it was because of security reasons during a visit by the queen spoke to one of the students involved. i went into uni like you know for my eleven am back shows like ten from the emotional time it was i walked in i got my id card i tapped on the barrier and it wouldn't it wouldn't work the barrier wouldn't open i talked about three times and by the third time i kind of psyched to myself i knew that this is intentional marines a student at king's college london but for one day this week she wasn't she was barred while kings was hosting the queen. around the time of this grand entrance on the all this side of the building the second year religion and politics student was having this conversation with security guards in the armored car the spin room sort of record. for your request.
8:26 pm
really stressful to leave profiled me. they're not perfect and you see what they did she wasn't the only one experiencing this issue. it was here that marine tried to get into her university for a second time but she says she was told by security guards here that she was one of several students who had been barred from her own university for the duration of the queen's visit now marina and her friends say that they've been politically profiled for their history of peaceful demonstrations over issues such as palestine demos like this was it in this group. who are dying because you are who the north people think is not ok it does. maureen doesn't have
8:27 pm
a criminal record she claims she was just singled out by her university for being a politically minded muslim woman i must be paying student i pay nine thousand pounds right and i'm i'm not allowed to go to my lecture because i'm a carrier. security got to the queen. outrageous since the incident the students have staged more protests highlighting what happened to them and demanding on says . i. king's college london is one of the u.k.'s oldest universities that occupies several buildings in central london and the queen and the duchess of cambridge way opening this new building bush house now auntie put the students allegations to the university and the response we call it was simply that that was an event head that required the highest level of security we had an event on tuesday which demanded
8:28 pm
the highest level of security we had to minimize movement three buildings for security reasons at a time some of our buildings were not successful the metropolitan police told our team that they don't comment on security issues but marine says that talking about political issues shouldn't make her a security. pact the choosing of the international we're back at the top of the hour. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next about different clubs on one hand it is logical to say that no one fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective i'm used to suppressing and i saw one on t.v.
8:29 pm
. i'm going to talk about football narvi or else if you think i was going to go. by the way. what is looks like here. is an officer. to get up off the ground or begin to. hurt them on the sounds of. a grown man with misleading essentially. twisted away from the officer. they obviously did a kind of lunge for the weapon in one smith's and then when it happened on three swung. didn't hit him i never saw any contact with. any kind of went back to where they were so the officers back here there again fifteen feet apart at this point
8:30 pm
and that's when the officer his gun and tree. hello and welcome to cross talk we're all things are considered i'm peter lavelle there are calls to end the electoral college lowered the voting age to sixteen allowing non-citizens to vote and to pack the supreme court with more and partisan judges what is happening here well it would seem if you can't win on the merit of ideas that all you need to do is to radically change the system.
