a yemeni woman who'd been prevented from traveling to the u.s. to see her dying son because of donald trump's travel ban has been given a waiver sherm this will air is technically banned from entering the u.s. due to travel restrictions on mostly muslim countries imposed by chump's administration her husband appealed to the state department to sign a waiver so that she could see a son who was a life support machine in california the council of american islamic relations now says really will be able to land in america as but to fly to san francisco. a u.s. federal judge has delayed sentencing for president trump's former national security adviser michael flynn a case as part of an investigation of possible collusion between trump's campaign and russia in the run up to the twenty sixteen election lawyers asked the judge for a continuance that would allow him to complete his corporation in the russia probe by special counsel but want to. joins us live from washington d.c.
10:06 pm
particular small details behind the delay in sentencing. the bottom line is it was very clear that michael flynn was going to prison the judge asked prosecutors should he be charged with treason he said that he had betrayed his country sold everything that the flag represents that he wasn't inclined to be lenient on him michael flynn these attorneys saw the writing on the wall the special prosecutor and said look he's given us so much cooperation one thousand different meetings hours and hours of help just give him maybe zero to six months the judge looked like he was just going to throw that out because he doesn't have to listen to the prosecutors and flynn was facing the possibility of up to five years in prison so basically the judge handed him over life i said do you want to wait on sentencing continue to cooperate with the special prosecutor he said i'm not saying that that's going to change my mind in ninety days but you want to take ninety days flynn said absolutely so basically what this means is now he has to go back see what else he can give to the special counsel or another prosecution to have his
10:07 pm
associates of now been charged as unregistered foreign agents for turkey possibly cooperate in that case come back before the judge in march and say look i did even more so please take it easy on me all the judge really made it clear that he might not be inclined to do anything for michael flynn who he basically said he was disgusted by him and his crimes and there was a setback for the trump supporters in the media. so basically what the right wing media fox news in particular had been clinging to was the sentencing document from flynn's lawyers that did not go over well with the judge they basically said hey he didn't know it was a crime to lie to the f.b.i. and you know the should have been interviewing him anyway because what he provided was an material to the investigation all of that is wrong and the judge basically if you've been watching fox news took flint point by point by point through their argument did you know he asked that it's a crime to lie to the f.b.i. after all this man was in the intelligence community for decades he said of course
10:08 pm
i knew it was a crime to lie to the f.b.i. and he admitted he lied to the f.b.i. now that he was trapped that he knew it was wrong he knew it was illegal he did it anyway and he accepts that this was a crime and that he's pleading guilty to it so we're going to have to watch the right white conservative space in the media to see what they hold onto now but they've been really holding on to this idea that flint is a victim and that the f.b.i. acted inappropriately and the judge really spelled out the case before the entire country that know he knew it was wrong he did it anyway and now he admits he committed a crime. thank you very much indeed for. a us president don't trump charity the trump foundation has agreed to shut down this part of a legal battle with the state of new york foundation is alleged to have operated as an extension of the president's businesses and political campaign if a state which is wind up would have to pay thousands in penalties and be barred from running other charities foundations lawyers say they had been planning to
10:09 pm
close the foundation for months and that any legal violations were mine a favorite of his own who has more from new york. new york attorney general barbara underwood gave us gaping rebuke of the way the trump foundation work she said there was a shocking pattern of illegality involving the trump foundation including unlawful coordination with the trump presidential campaign and in a statement she said that the trump foundation functioned a little more than a personal checkbook for donald trump to serve for his business and political interests essential a the trump foundation was used by trump to pay for legal bills related to his business even pay for a piece of artwork for one of his golf clubs and also make an illegal political donation now the trump foundation overall is a very small part of the trump organization portfolio was founded in one thousand nine hundred eight and at its peak it had about three million dollars it was run by
10:10 pm
donald trump and three of his children evoke a don jr and eric there's about two million dollars remaining in the foundation that will now be distributed to. needy organizations but it will be a court that will oversee that distribution of the final remaining money now trump it should be noted has said that the foundation has done nothing wrong and that this lawsuit from the new york attorney general is nothing more than politically motivated but attorney general barbara underwood has said that this is an important victory for the rule of law making it clear there is one set of rules for everybody while the trump foundation will be shut down the lawsuit into ily ily go illegal activities related to it will continue for mrs of russia turkey and iran have agreed to accelerate their efforts to find a political solution to the syrian civil war and they say they will work towards
10:11 pm
convening a committee next year which would negotiate a new constitution for syria but the un envoy for syria said much more remains to be done. the best of the foreign ministers of turkey russia and iran could come up with was a commitment to agree to take efforts aimed at convening the first session of the syrian constitutional committee in geneva early next year but there is still no indication on exactly who the hundred fifty members of that constitutional committee are going to be because at this meeting these three countries overlooked by the u.n. special envoy stephan to restore it when i were unable to agree on the final fifty members of the committee there are fifty from the syrian regime fifty from opposition groups but this other fifty there's a been a lot of haggling on who should be on this committee and who shouldn't be on this committee and they clearly haven't been able to agree the final names it was perhaps particularly for straightening for staff and in this story because as he spoke to the press here this evening this was his last statement to the press you

report to the u.n. secretary general but he's leaving the post and handing over to a norwegian in the new year these conflicts never ended with a wonderful peace or death be sure treaty and a conference and everybody embraced each other it is actually a process that may go on and on until all death and hopefully in the best way for devalued people the two constants in this conflict over differ a lot for year one that is never been a constant moment of anything there being constant shift of what they're being the military invents and the facts on the ground and a political position just look where we were four years ago and where we are today second constant there have always been the syrian people suffering. u.s. special envoy for syria jim jeffrey has confirmed the deployment of kurdish fighters
10:13 pm
from northern iraq into northern syria the unexpected deployment came after turkey threatened further military action in man b. if u.s. backed kurdish wacky fighters don't leave the area they know how to reports from istanbul. turkish military reinforcements have already been sent to the border with syria president pressured to tell you border guard says a cross border operation against what he calls terrorists can begin at any moment the target is the u.s. backed syrian democratic forces the s d f is mainly made up of the y.p. g. or kurdish peoples protection units it won't be the first time the turkish military has confronted the kurdish armed group on syrian soil but if this offensive does happen it will be the first time turkish troops are targeting the group east of the euphrates river where its nato ally the united states stations its troops are two guns announcement followed a visit by u.s.
10:14 pm
syria envoy jim jeffrey to ankara last week geoffrey said he told the turks their plans offensive is a bad idea u.s. support for the y.p. g. has strained relations but jeffrey confirmed arrangements are being made to address turkey's concerns. deployment across the border was done with our understanding but also with the understanding of the ocean so. that's one of the various steps that are being taken. the white peachy and the peshmerga are viable kurdish forces but kurds in northern iraq are allies of the u.s. and turkey they are likely to be deployed along the borders between syria turkey and iraq the y.p. she controls a continuous strip of territory from iraq to the eastern banks of the euphrates river almost thirty percent of syria's territory the first one is aiming to prevent p y e g.'s y. p. g.'s territorial continuity alongside the turkey's border and turkey is planning to
10:15 pm
infiltrate into this syrian territory the white peachey already enjoys self rule which turkish leaders reject because they believe the white peachy is an extension of the outlawed kurdistan workers' party the p.k. k. which is fighting for kurdish autonomy in south east turkey. for that we have said and we are saying that no we will begin our operation to rescue the east of the euphrates from the separatist organization within a few days turkey says any operation would not target u.s. troops but the white b.g. is an important element in washington's syria strategy and the trumpet ministrations only syria giving its leverage and influence in any political settlement turkish leaders know that and are treading carefully so as not to rupture a relationship with a strategically important ally. the u.s. envoy for syria is now stressing washington's ties with armed groups in northern syria are tactical temporary and transactional such
10:16 pm
a description is unlikely to please the white peachey or satisfy turkish leaders but the u.s. says steps are being taken turkey has had to say whether they are enough to prevent military action senator al jazeera has stumbled. still to come on out here i'm dorset to find out the qatar national base calibration where the country's military is put on display for everyone to see. and one of the world's most successful football managers is fired from one of the world's biggest clubs there's a marine unit sacked by manchester united. hello again welcome back to your international weather forecast well here across europe we are watching still some very stormy weather down across parts of the aegean sea a lot of rain
