1:01 pm
on. you like to go private. so it was a coup wasn't it. the arrest of an american soldier over a purported plot to bomb a major news network uncovers his wider plans to fight alongside an extremist but talian in ukraine. live from moscow thanks for joining us on r.t. international venue with you tonight welcome to the program and the white house has released the transcript of a july phone call between donald trump and ukraine's leader vladimir selenski is at the center of an impeachment inquiry that's moving forward against the u.s. president over claims he abused his powers to try and smear election rival let's go live now to caleb orpen for more on this obviously. this transcript has been at the
1:02 pm
center of the impeachment proceedings what do we know so far what's put on veiled. well we do have the full transcript it's a brief conversation between the u.s. president and the ukrainian president that took place on july 25th it's a 3 minute conversation 5 pages of text here and donald trump certainly does mention joe biden and his son hunter biden and the issue regarding a prosecutor in ukraine this is what is in the transcript. there's a lot of talk about biden son by the prosecution and a lot of people who want to find out about what you can do with the attorney general would be great to have mr giuliani give you a new move so we're going to have attorney general who we will get to the bottom of it i'm sure you figure tom now the initial allegations from the democrats
1:03 pm
cited an unnamed whistleblower and said that trump had not only mentioned biden and the scandal and his son but had also threatened to withdraw over $400000000.00 of u.s. military aid to ukraine unless he was helped out there is no mention of u.s. military aid in this transcript of the conversation there is mention of biden and his son and the prosecutor and ukraine but there is not any mention of u.s. military aid now it's also important to note that the democrats have given a very strong reaction we've heard from many voices in the democratic party that say this essentially amounts to a betrayal of the country from president trump this is the democratic reaction. i haven't seen it so i'll just come from my own name but that. is. the fact is that the president of the united states. in please check his constitutional
1:04 pm
responsibilities has asked the foreign government to help him in his political campaign president abuse the powers of his office and be trade the public trust. for personal political gain like any mafia boss the president didn't need to say that's a nice country you have it be a shame if something happened to it because that was clear from the conversation there is no quid pro quo necessary to betray your country or your oath of office even though many read this as a quid pro quo i'm not concerned whether it is a quid pro quo or not. and now the house of representatives has already launched an impeachment inquiry they launched it before this transcript was released so that inquiry is underway and what exactly is going to come next to this release the transcript is going to impact the impeachment inquiry spawn that
1:05 pm
supposedly clearly perhaps it didn't contain the transcript what they expected it to. well the way the impeachment proceedings are laid out under the us constitution it's the house of representatives they're the ones that bring impeachment charges we've got 6 committees they're investigating tromp at the moment it would be the house judiciary committee that would draw up articles of impeachment and it would then be the u.s. house of representatives that would have to vote to proceed with the impeachment however it would then be the u.s. senate that would carry out the impeachment trial and then ultimately vote on whether or not to remove u.s. president donald trump from office now at this point the republicans control the u.s. senate and it's very likely that if the house of representatives were to vote to begin impeachment proceedings that the u.s. senate led by a senate republican majority leader mitch mcconnell they would simply vote to not
1:06 pm
proceed and have the impeachment trial it's very likely that it would not happen now it's important to know we've only had 2 u.s. presidents who've undergone impeachment proceedings before we've had bill clinton and andrew johnson both undergo impeachment trials now both of them survived the senate in both cases voted to keep them in office now richard nixon was facing an impeachment inquiry and was leading to an impeachment and then he stepped down from office so at the moment no u.s. president in u.s. history has ever been brought down with impeachment proceedings it's never happened that we've had a u.s. president removed via impeachment now trump says that if the democrats go ahead with this he may actually be the beneficiary in the 2020 vote this is donald trump . granted it was or whatever and if you take a look at the democrats they went down to see the president of ukraine and they asked him for all sorts of things it's the single greatest witchhunt in american
1:07 pm
history probably in history but in american history there was no pressure the way you had that built up that color was going to be the coal from hell that turned out to be a nothing cool and now we've got a strong reaction coming from the democrats they seem quite excited about an impeachment inquiry and quite angry at trump's behavior they say this transcript confirms their allegation that he has quote betrayed the country however not all democrats are in unison on this we've heard from tulsa gabbert the congresswoman from hawaii she opposes an impeachment proceeding she as a democrat says this would hurt the democratic party and hurt the country overall so what happens next is going to be quite interesting not exactly clear we know what the u.s. constitution says and how the procedures go along but we don't know exactly where everyone stands on this. but it will put great stuff thanks for that scott going to make for an interesting run up to the 2020 election. with dr robot good show an
1:08 pm
associate professor of u.s. politics told us that the transcript raises a lot of questions so not only concerning the u.s. leader. this is just a glimpse at what we're looking at and certainly an in-group could open up lots of doors that we haven't even considered yet about presidential conduct or misconduct that may have been going on around this particular instance or other you're not seeing a lot in the mainstream us press you know not seeing how questions about well could also be distracting us from when joe biden has done and others have been involved maybe there really is something there that's a question that's not coming through really the questions that are being asked in the hope i think for those who are were answered from this had this leads into really great. leaked information or juicy information not about joe biden but about donald trump. people who are upset with his politics and this could be a way to move us away from when joe biden might be involved in fact. rather me as
1:09 pm
if it isn't currently in new york for the u.n. general assembly is expected to meet donald trump later today when asked earlier on wednesday about his phone call with american president the ukrainian leader gave a somewhat to face of reply nominee film was a disappointed to michelle president in his own as an agreement no man impeachment to more than a stranger to you an old indian on the minute he's been demoted you meet senior obama she's talking. basically convened british parliament back in action with noisy angry exchanges across the commons m.p.'s have back off the prime minister's suspension of parliament was ruled unlawful they were in a fighting mood boris johnson will face m.p.'s later and it suggested there might be a 3rd attempt to force a general election earlier the government adviser who told boris johnson the probation was good to go right at fellow m.p.'s. here's our word. grace we now have very wired number of this house actually it's against levy at all
1:10 pm
denying the charge of having a. very high risk factor should be resolved this parliament is very good at it live to our wish was to see you and ali with more recent turning out to be uncomfortable even for boris johnson is that facing m.p.'s you tried to keep out of the commons for the next few weeks you think this is going to go. you have our strengths and they're really you he was hoping that parliament would still be probed until the middle of october but as it was we saw that ruling yesterday by the u.k.'s supreme court unanimously coming to the conclusion that that decision to probe parliament by the government wasn't lawful and in fact ruling that as far as they were concerned it never happened there was no such thing that had no legal basis and so m.p.'s were able to once more take their seats in the house of commons today where we saw those very far you scenes not just like the ones we saw from the
1:11 pm
attorney general but also from other m.p.'s who was that was delighted to be back in the house also to came out the government. these government stands in shame tendering illegal advice to a monarch and not even able to uphold the most basic the most important of principles abiding by the rule of law yes the speaker we had notice of the intention to prove with your assistance we could have entertained motions against seats or even a motion of no confidence so it was a coup wasn't it government yes she did it clearly didn't if you like to go prioritization. how nice how she was what i said 10 o'clock take assembly up alive and i gave a party like this i leave just like they describe me and i start to talk about how are all right actually it is i guess. now the government say that while they
1:12 pm
disagree with that ruling parliament had to say it once more they will abide by it and they're now trying to table a motion calling for a general election we've already seen the opposition in the house of commons rejecting that twice before they say that boris johnson's attempts to try to get an election are just a distraction process and what they want to do is to stop the no deal brigs it from taking place also those opposition figures calling on boris johnson to stand down it's not likely that he will but with those with that deadline of a talk with 31st looming parliament saying that he must extend article 50 and call for an extension to the bridge the deadline it's really unclear to see what's going to happen next so many options are your guess anyone's guess what could happen next in west was that essentially there for us with the latest. or the 1st. in orbit is
1:13 pm
now on his way to the international space station on with 2 fellow astronauts r.t. was at the lot surely we'll share it with you just after this short break.
1:14 pm
the democrats want to recapture the white house in a bad way their hatred of trump with the help of the liberal mainstream media has witnessed presidential candidates say some of the most extraordinary things but there is nothing extraordinary about their hatred of the president the question is do they have ideas to win. the program the iranian president says there will be no new negotiations while his country is on what he called muscling sanctions the u.s. was the key target audience he addressed this year's u.n. general assembly. we have never surrendered to foreign aggression and imposition we cannot believe the invitation to negotiation from people who claim to have applied
1:15 pm
the harshest of sanctions against the dignity and prosperity of our nation the iranian nation will never forget and forgive these crimes and these criminals when the us does not respect the un resolutions and when europe shows an inability to do so the only way forward should be to rely on national dignity pride and strength our response to any negotiations under sanctions is no. alive now to coral shiloh a paris based attorney and the middle east analyst thanks for joining us great to have you on the program both president trump obviously making their speech issues at the u.n. general assembly lot of hostile rhetoric nothing surprising nothing new there what can we glean from what they said in their speeches. as. president donald trump as usual you know he won the one day he's going to say ok i'm ready to meet the president president rouhani and the other is going to is gonna say iran is the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the world which is that which is not true which is a false statement iran is fighting actually most of the terrorist groups in that
1:16 pm
region so. it's one day i want to meet and the other day i don't want to meet so we don't know where he stands for the prison iranian president he stands on the same on the same line he says that we are ready to negotiate but we are ready to negotiate and only if the sanctions are released and there is there would be no more sanction then we can come to the negotiating table and start negotiating so there are 2 different points of views the electron is a pragmatic president is a pragmatic guy is a businessman so he can go one way or another are another way a very fast so if if there is sanction were to be. lifted they were in a will. go to the negotiating table the radio position seems pretty clear pretty consistent what do you think might induce the trump administration to lift the
1:17 pm
campaign of maximum pressure groups that are on you know obviously defuse some of those tensions in the persian gulf. it's 3 the view of the american administration is there is that it's really unclear as as i said one day they say ok we are we are 3 we agreed to meet the wins without any precondition but they want they want to keep that maximum pressure and the winners will not surrender to that maximum pressure because they cannot say i like president rouhani cannot face the nation and say ok we had. done and done our nerve and we went to the negotiating table that's why iran try to provoke in some kind of way and then we can proxies in that region you know that there is. some course some saudi oil installation fuel last week. with the united states didn't do anything except just saying that it was the iranians and they didn't show any proof the whole world were
1:18 pm
was waiting for something to go through the united nations and short on proof as he said but he didn't do anything so what's the u.s. position in that moment i think they want to keep the pressure and see if they can bring the rain in by force by the i doubt that they can do that. paris based attorney and middle east analyst thanks for joining us today great to have in the program. if you are he has arrested an army soldier who allegedly planned to bomb a news network and assassinate a presidential candidate to arrest those also uncovered a wider plot for the man to join a notorious ukrainian ultranationalist group fighting in eastern ukraine as one quarter reports he is far from the only american joining the ranks of ukrainian the own nazis. planning a terror attack preparing to murder and tea for members this isn't a movie plot it's the allegations that recently landed jarrett william smith in an
1:19 pm
f.b.i. cell and authorities say his plans were only confined to the us of a smith had spoken about his desire to travel to ukraine to fight with the ukraine based violent far right paramilitary group as of battalion why ukraine well it's a hotbed for the far right and white supremacy which have a big influence in the country's military the as all battalion for example its insignia features 2 nazi era symbols still widely used by neo nazi groups. and smith was dead set on joining up with as of and it's not just him reports say some of his collaborators were already fighting with another neo nazi group called right sector it seems kiev has
1:20 pm
a poll for americans on the far right remember charlottesville. for members of a far right group involved in that riot were arrested and lo and behold they too had a fixation on the battalion they even traveled to europe and met one of the battalions leaders with so many neo nazis in the us you would think washington would unambiguously oppose their growth but that's just not the case at 1st in 2015 congress unanimously voted against military aid to the neo nazi as of battalion i am grateful that the house of representatives unanimously passed my amendments last night to ensure that our military does not train members of the. neo nazi azoff battalion but just one year later washington changed its mind and all of the sudden pictures began surfacing on social media of as of and u.s.
1:21 pm
soldiers striking poses together it makes you wonder if the u.s. even thinks nazi ideology is a threat let alone something negative frankly you now are vetting screens for human rights violations not for ideology neo nazis you know can join the us army to looks like the us army will take anyone these days as long as they hate the people washington wants them to hate in this case given the a sieve and the russian. dominated the united states for at least a decade if not more it isn't surprising that there would be people who were eager to join the military who. are crazy with. russia as i look around leaders and when you have a volunteer. military as as the us does it does attract.
1:22 pm
not necessarily very good people it also attracts people who subscribe to dangerous etiology there should be a bit gross as to prevent people who have these dangerous goes however. probably the us military simply doesn't have the vetting process there so eager to get as many recruits as possible that they wave almost everyone in the nationalist groups in ukraine have also been incorporating children with extreme views here's one for his film artie's video agency ruptly. it is not interesting for children to sit still and just listen that's why they play war games. if you can you.
1:23 pm
can give them. what you. want to aim is to tell them the real story is what the ukrainian and surgeon to me was and what people who fought for it's. a new crew of 3 haven't walked on a journey to the international space station for a few quick orbits of the earth they're due to dock in just over 3 hours time so historic day for the united arab emirates as well as 1st astronauts is on board alongside counterparts from the u.s. and russia what's the launch in kazakhstan. and we can see that the engine has ignited. and the next oh sure are.
1:24 pm
just so you can understand what it feels like to be standing where i am i'm around 2 kilometers away from the launch pad known as the garden start on the ground underneath me you can hear the people call to the ground underneath me is just read about the rating this is not a trauma but the shaking from that last all it's going through my whole body combined not of course with the deafening roar as those engines kicked into action imagine the power that is needed in order to propel that 15 me to tool $310.00 ton rocket into the ad and then of course you have that beautiful the mesmerizing flame of the fuel that ignited it really is almost indescribably dramatic not flying today of russian cosmonaut. american jessica man and has a monsoon from the united arab emirates now this you want has drawn in
1:25 pm
a bigger crowd than usual why well film a military pilot tons of snow elements where he will become the fust amorality and indeed the 1st arab to ever set foot on the international space station what are they going to do once the up that well that due to come down in march 2020 and they have got lots to get on with not only have they got to conduct over $300.00 experiments with a focus on astronauts healthy like problems with fish and that also have several planned space warps and this is really all in preparation for a contribution to the future plan to missions well both to the moon and 2024 but after that potentially 2 mas so that we have that the 100 and 44th launch of the site. hughes rocket into space expedition 61 on the way to its new home the i a sas full 100 kilometer says above the sky joining a long and prestigious history and space exploration it's been almost 60 years
1:26 pm
since a few cosmonaut yuri gagarin of course became the fast man to ever fly in space and here we are decades on still exploring still innovating and still give the cliche reaching for the stars what's the difference here and i for this album both coming away just a few moments time obama came 30 minutes with the latest global news updates. the tense situation in venezuela is still all over the news the problem in venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been great only implement from the inside venezuela things were different we're
