hello i'm adrian finnegan this is the live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes a former trump campaign adviser a mits that he lied to the f.b.i. about meetings with alleged russian go betweens. and trump's former campaign manager pulled out a foot another former aide plead not guilty to conspiring to defraud the u.s. . spanish prosecutors seek rebellion charges against cattle odious deposed leaders plus. a nearly everyone described how they had been basing. it on the silent they're terrified about moving to the main town. refugees refused to leave an australian prison camp in papua new guinea despite its evident closure. they've been major developments in the investigation into links between russia and the campaign to get donald trump elected as u.s. president. trump's former campaign manager paul manifested his business associates
2:02 am
have been charged with conspiring against the u.s. it's also that a third man who served as a campaign advisor has pleaded guilty to lying to the f.b.i. about his contacts with russia the white house though is to flexing the news saying that none of this has anything to do with donald trump a white house correspondent kimberly helka reports. trump do solemnly swear donald trump has been in office less than a year but this is perhaps the most significant day of his presidency so far on monday two of his former associates avoided handcuffs and turned themselves into the authorities in washington the first is paul mann afford the former chair of donald trump's presidential election campaign the other is rick gates a longtime business associate of matter forts and worked with the white house until march both men appeared in court pleading not guilty to
2:03 am
a dozen charges they include conspiracy against the united states also to launder money acting as an agent for a foreign principal providing false statements to investigators and failure to report foreign bank accounts there is no evidence that mr mann of fort of the trump campaign colluded with the russian government. the announcement which caught many off guard that a third person tied to the truck campaign george papadopoulos had pled guilty to lying to the f.b.i. that was over the timing of his meetings with alleged go betweens for russia he is now cooperating with the special investigation led by robert muller as with paul mann of fort hood rick gates the white house is pushing back diminishing the role of papadopoulos as a foreign policy adviser this individual was the member of a volunteer advisory council them at one time over the course of
2:04 am
a year and he was part of a list that risk read out in the washington post and hardly call that some sort of regular adviser however it's the case of paul manna for which is getting the most attention the indictments paint the picture of a man living a lavish lifestyle when f.b.i. agents raided his home they even photographed his suits as evidence of money laundering more than seventy five million a form payments through offshore bank accounts on twitter trump reacted to the arrests he has repeatedly called the investigation into ties between his two thousand and sixteen presidential campaign and russia a witch hunt by political adversaries and the media without offering any evidence the white house says it expects the russia probe to wrap up soon and will the indictment states man a fourth charges involve actions from twenty sixteen on twitter trump contradicted the claim arguing the charges against man a fort emanate from actions taken before chairing trumps presidential bid trump
2:05 am
again stated there was no collusion between his campaign and russia metaphor its lawyer calls the charges ridiculous and on capitol hill top u.s. senators are also issuing statements about the indictments claiming it is proof the justice process is working kimberly helped get al jazeera washington. alan fischer joins us now live from washington the white house allan says that none of this has anything to do with president donald trump are they right what two things you've got to think about first of all the charges against paul minor for go all the way up to twenty sixteen and twenty seventeen over the time when paul manna for was campaign advisor campaign chairman to donald trump and you remember donald trump said he knew all the best people he picked all the best people so that puts a question mark over his judgment and george papadopoulos although the white house
2:06 am
is playing down the fact that he was a volunteer for an advisory committee the reality is that he was part of the campaign and he was e-mailing senior figures in the campaign saying look we could get some duct on hillary clinton from russians that i know and they were saying that would be interesting and then when he was asked about it by f.b.i. investigators he lied about it and that's when he was in real trouble the fact that he has no walking with the investigation will concern many others also it's not unusual in cases like this when they go for a poor man afford to see a look if we convict you on the charges that were brought against you you're looking up to thirteen years in jail if you want to come ahead with a plea deal and we can maybe talk about more information that you could give us so this just might be the first step in what could be a long chess game you say i don't remember that when there are investigations into bill clinton and nixon took them up to a year to get to this point this investigation has only been going five months you say we're in this for the long haul a long chess game what happens next where where and how far could it go and. well
2:07 am
that's what we don't know it will be up to the special counsel when he gets the information to decide where the information goes of course the white house is saying look we think this investigation is going to wrap up pretty soon but they said that on friday afternoon just a couple of hours before we found out that these indictments were coming down on monday republicans keep seeing this horrible inelegant phrase that it's a nothing burger issues there nor links between the russians and donald trump's campaign but the reality is there are many people on both sides of congress who are saying look we've got to let robert mueller do is job take this is far as he can let the evidence lead him in this investigation and then see where we are at the end of course people have been raising questions about whether or not donald trump will issue pardons but there are people again on both sides of congress are saying that would be a really bad idea and robert mueller must be given time and space to do is what even if it takes as well and to twenty eighteen al-jazeera as alan fischer
2:08 am
reporting live there from washington john nichols is national affairs correspondent of the liberal weekly magazine the nation he joins us live via skype from madison wisconsin. it was metaphor who got all the headlines today to what extent though is papadopoulos the bigger story here. i think papadopoulos is the bigger story by any measure and that is because while man of ford is a known figure and certainly has been hit with a lot of very major charges along with gates it's papadopoulos who has acknowledged lying to the f.b.i. and that acknowledgement appears if we believe what we're being told odd to relate to efforts to connect the trunk campaign to the russians and so suddenly and very unexpectedly we have evidence that the miller investigation has gone much further much deeper into the truck campaign and much deeper into the most challenging
2:09 am
issues for the trunk campaign and i think most people expected so how close does this bring president trump to this russia inquiry charges well there's a picture circulating today of papadopoulos sitting next to president struck out a at a meeting we know that president trump referred to him. top aide in a conversation with the washington post that doesn't convict donald trump by any measure but it does mean that he can't deny knowing this guy he can't deny having been in the room with this guy and so what comes forward from here if indeed papadopoulos is a cooperative witness somebody who is working with mueller on this the best a geisha and will have credibility i mean it they'll be able to go and say you know donald trump may deny it but here's pictures of this guy sitting next to down to the white house continues to throw up a smokescreen what are we to make of the administration's continued attempts to to
2:10 am
accuse the clinton campaign of collusion with russia. yeah i mean it's pretty clear now that last week when the rumors about the mueller indictments began to circulate that the truck campaign or trump white house went into overdrive on trying to shift the blame to create a suggestion that there was more wrongdoing on the other side so to speak and i think they got a little traction with that many republicans in congress sort of echoed the message but what hit today it was much bigger than than just one indictment coming down the combination of the man of four gates indictments twelve indictments some very major issues and the papadopoulos indictment or actually acknowledgement of the admission of wrongdoing and a conviction that's that's something that has caused republicans in congress to back off i think a lot of republican media folks to kind of pause for
2:11 am
a moment and the word from the white house is that this day is really sort of not the white house back on its feet there they're struggling to figure out you know how to respond and what their approach will be from here on out so i'm not sure that they feel the confidence that they felt a few days ago that they could they could ride this out i think now there's a sense that they have a real challenge on their hands and john all of this as it emerges that at least half the u.s. population was exposed to russian sponsored election posts on facebook during the campaign facebook says that it disabled five point eight million accounts in october last year twitter says that russian links also made to the counts sent some one point four million tweets about the the election campaign it's suspended over two and a half thousand accounts what do you make of that. well it's clear that there was a major effort to influence the campaign now that doesn't prove
2:12 am
that the campaign was influenced i mean there's a there's difficulty in measuring some of that but something was going on and so when you combine that evidence of a clear effort to have some influence with the mounting evidence that people in the president's inner circle people who are close to him as advisors longtime aides a long time campaigner a short period campaign chairman but long time associate is that as we get more and more evidence that these people also had ties to the russians what you get down to is a real question of will one or more of these people say that donald trump knew that these things were happening that he was aware that there was an effort to do this if that awareness is established if you can put him in meetings and say that he knew about it then of course he is in richard nixon level trouble i mean this is this would be an extremely serious thing we haven't gotten there yet and we have to
2:13 am
be cautious about this mueller is a cautious man he takes time to build his case over time but clearly this initial salvo of this initial set of statements about the indictments as well as the conviction point to an inquiry that is very serious that is focused on many of the issues that people are concerned about and that i think it's fair to say many people feel has the potential to make those connections that that you reference when you talk about some of the other attempts to influence the election john really going to talk to many thanks to john nichols national affairs correspondent at the nation thank you. u.s. president donald trump says that a libyan man linked to a twenty twelve attack on an american diplomatic compound in benghazi in libya has been captured attackers killed the ambassador to libya and three other americans in a statement trump says that special forces picked up the stuff imaam in an operation in libya he says that will face justice in the u.s.

2:15 am
a happenstance attack on pieing country whatever happens now it is certain that if there is a conviction he would perhaps face the potential death penalty here in the u.s. if not at least life in prison there are other people said to still be under search by the u.s. government it's not clear how close they are to apprehending those suspects as well at least eleven people have been killed in four astronauts in the city of dan in eastern libya witnesses say that civilian areas were his with women and children among the dead. spain's chief prosecutor is seeking charges against several regional politicians of a cattle ennius recent photon's a session the cattle and leaders could face up to thirty years in prison if convicted of rebellion sufficient in the bessel months meanwhile deposed cattle and president carlos pushed amount has travelled to brussels seeking support for the bid to split from spain under simmons reports from barcelona. the police may be

a new joint force in africa and in sports the houston astros one of the most dramatic game in world series history. the future of a historic agreement in colombia is in doubt after an armed group admitted killing an indigenous leader the national liberation army or e l n says that it was questioning. for a stero on links to colombia's intelligence services when he tackled one of its members he says he was shot in self-defense on friday colombia's president said that if the l.n. killed it would constitute a breach of the deal let's go live now to bogota the colombian capital. is there so this is the first serious breach i was under of that ceasefire on the part of the e l and what exactly happened. well all we know is what.
2:19 am
leadership said in a statement part of it is well you said in your introduction that. indigenous leader in the western region calls for questioning accusing him of the essential being an informant for the military in that area and allegedly while they were trying to move him to the location of the interrogation he would have attacked one of the rebels that were escorting him and that's where that's where the rebel would have killed him this is where your land leadership is saying now recognizing their role in that that they said that they deeply regret this incident today have apologized to the family of defecting however they are also insisting that there was no order to kill or harm the indigenous leader in any
2:20 am
way nonetheless this is clearly a major and tragic breach of this cease fire that started just a little over a month ago so this definitely will complicate to the young going peace talks in quito ecuador and the government said that this is the floor of all incidentally that land will have to do more than just telling the truth about what happened that for the talks not to be impactful does it mean that the ceasefire is or is over one of the the peace negotiations now what happens next. well adrian for the moment the ceasefire stands that's because according to the protocol of the ceasefire single incidents however serious like this one doesn't mean an outcome attic and to the ceasefire or the talks there is an observer committee that. the united nations is part of that together with the catholic church they are
2:21 am
further investigating exactly what happened and they will send recommendations to the negotiations and they're going to go shooting cable and to avoid further incidents like this one however in the meantime we see here increasing criticism coming from the opposition to the government but also a non-governmental officials on how serious the plan is about the sparks many are also asking for those who have been responsible for this killing to be turned in by the land we're not sure that that will happen and also the u.n. is asking the government to do more to dispense community leaders and indigenous leaders in the traditional areas of conflict in colonial east eighty one of them have been killed by different armed groups or gangs since the beginning of the year so it's
2:22 am
a very complicated very critical moments now for the stocks and we'll have to see in coming days what will happen as a serious. reporting live from bogota many thanks. they've been celebrations and protests in kenya where holder kenyatta has been declared the overwhelming winner of the presidential election results show that he took ninety eight point two percent of the vote but the opposition has dismissed kenya as his victory citing love voter turnout for me the miller reports from nairobi. the official announcement that who kenyatta had secured his second term in office was no surprise for millions of kenyans but a low voter turnout of thirty eight percent has raised questions around the legitimacy of the selection which was ordered by the supreme court after it's an old orcus presidential vote saying the electoral commission had committed illegalities. to sixty. nine percent.
2:23 am
of the same. ones. or. this. was nothing more. than the realization. of a. statement. of ten. or so. and insubordinate. trace. the rerun was marred by violent protests when opposition leader raila odinga and his national super alliance party boycotted the election preventing at least one point eight million kenyans in opposition strongholds from voting. in total at least twelve million kenyans stayed away from the polls observer mission say besides the impact of the boycott violence and intimidation kept many of the voters away from polling stations. joe you described the vote as
2:24 am
a sham with the electoral commission not making the reforms the opposition had demanded for it to participate in the vote virtually every other issue that we raised that last time is present in this election. and what has happened is that this time around i think i was in a crises legitimacy a crisis of trying to shore up the numbers so that it appears that there is a legitimate mandate for president and in the course of they have done unimaginable things i can think of at least seventeen different grounds for question even if the election is challenged at the supreme court there are concerns the courts may not act independently concerns around the independence of the judiciary was heightened when the court refused to hear a petition to perspire own last week's rerun saying there weren't enough judges present whether or not this election is challenge legally they are many kenyans
2:25 am
that hope this final announcement will bring months of political tensions and uncertainty to an end but is kenya to address the nation are asking for unity protests began hitting fears of both political and ethnic rivalries are far from over. let's hear now from our series catherine sawyer witnessed some of those protests and opposition stronghold in western kenya. so people here in kisumu are very young by this saying they reject the results. of direction from the leader right away what. is going to determine what happens next but first straight ahead they say that this is a sham election they also say that they want a fresh election in one thousand days so you think. commission chair given the wrong result there is. no actually the
2:26 am
solution lies within the to. the protagonist of course fighting for power but the end result is the common man is not getting anything on the table. i don't see anybody really don't. think it's going. to work we don't want. this is one of four counties where the election was cancelled because of security reasons and collectively there are about one point eight million registered voters and people here are very young. and they will do whatever he tells them to do. the united states is pledging sixty million dollars to support a new force to patrol the south western sahara desert the so-called five cycle

2:45 am
