3:04 am
directed at the us ambassador across the chamber. you misguided if you think you have friends the so-called friends of yours are only those who cannot say no to you and this is the sole criterion for friendship in your understanding the us has proposed the establishment of a un investigative mechanism with an initial one year mandate to identify perpetrators of chemical attacks and while calling for security council action the ambassador made a not so veiled threat. history will record this as the moment when the security council either discharged its duty or demonstrated its utter and complete failure to protect the people of syria either way the united states will respond as the western allies gather did intense conversation the possibility that in the face of ongoing security council division some members could contemplate unilateral

3:06 am
prosecutors going into his home going into his into his office and seizing e-mails correspondence between the president and cohen tax records business records and the in the like that could provide a connection between the president and stormy daniels now this whole this investigation was not part of robert muller's probe into the russian meddling into the twenty six thousand election but information that muller uncovered during his investigation was handed over to federal prosecutors now president trump wasted very little time this evening bashing moeller for the investigation and this latest investigation into his attorney it's a disgraceful situation it's a total witch hunt i've been saying it for a long time i've wanted to keep it down and we've given. i believe over a million pages worth of documents to the special counsel. they continue to just go forward and here we're talking about. syria we're talking about
3:07 am
a lot of serious things with the greatest fighting force ever and i have this witch hunt constantly going on for over twelve months now. any idea what happens now and i'm wondering the what people feel about this. well it is this is an interesting development we're watching it unfold. what everybody is sort of wondering is what this might mean with the president and robert muller he's you know from time to time he was he was discouraged last summer from firing about the probe. and he mentioned this evening that he you know he he didn't fire him last summer but he may have to be talked out of doing that again. you know he also his justice department was in charge of turning over prompting this investigation so it will be interesting to see how he responds to
3:08 am
his deputy attorney general and his attorney general over this situation all right thank you brian melanie sloan is a former federal prosecutor as she says trump is nervous about special counsel robert miller focusing part of his probe on his personal lawyer. this started months ago apparently in march when muller's became interested in the stormy daniels issue and he apparently uncovered information my guess is it may have also new things new evidence may have come out and then last thursday night president trump got on the news and said that he had no idea how this payment was made one hundred thirty thousand dollars that was paid to stormy daniels michael cohen was his lawyer but you'd have to ask him so there are so many questions and now it's being reported that mr cohen is being investigated for bank fraud wire fraud and campaign finance violations that would be was that hundred thirty thousand dollars
3:09 am
paid to stormy daniels in order to hush her up in order to help mr trump's chance of winning the presidential election this happened remember only twelve days before the election so there are myriad intentional charges michael cohen is facing and no wonder mr trump is very anxious michael cohen seems to be the person who knows everything and if mr cohen decides that he wants to save his own skin and he wants to speak about president trump if he's going to in fact turn state's evidence against mr trump then this is very bad news indeed for the president only the president knows exactly what michael cohen knows about his business dealings and his relationship with stormy daniels facebook chief executive mark zuckerberg has apologized to u.s. politicians for a previously breach affecting millions of users in a written statement he admits the social media to a didn't do enough to protect people's personal information so who are going to appear before two congressional committees on tuesday and when in washington d.c. he'll answer questions about the misuse of data of up to eighty seven million uses
3:10 am
facebook is also contacting the people affected to tell them what happened and how they can protect themselves particularly and has been following developments in washington d.c. . c.e.o. and founder of facebook mark zuckerberg has really escaped much public scrutiny in the past that is changing with this cambridge analytical scandal people just didn't realize that if their friends downloaded apps that their profile could be targeted as well and so now facebook c.e.o. is trying to get ahead of what has been growing outrage that the company's been slow to react to he's up on capitol hill meeting privately with key members of the senate and then he's going to have two days of testimony music spec to deface improved tough questions so in ahead of that they are announcing some steps that they will notify the eighty seven million users affected by the cambridge analytical gandel they're going to change how their website works that they're going to add almost five thousand new employees to work on security also saying that they are going to follow the new european union step privacy standards that
3:11 am
are pretty strict that they're going to apply to every facebook user across the globe in the near future and that they're going to work with foundations and academics to study exactly how social media impacts elections so basic message terms are covered today in this testimony that was released ahead of his visit is that he is sorry that he should have done better the company should have done better and they will in the future still probably not be enough to keep him from getting some pretty tough questions when he sits down with members of the u.s. house and senate still ahead of al-jazeera. israeli interrogators accused of taunting jailed palestinian teen activist ahead to me plus. getting to grips with turbulent times while military cooperation a major talking point between capitalism in and the u.s. secretary of defense.
