a failed one of the dominating figures in high fashion for half a century guys aged eighty five. and the thank you for joining us u.s. president donald trump's former national security advisor and other white house officials pushed a venture to bring nuclear power plants the saudi arabia that's according to a new report released by u.s. house democrats now they accuse the trumpet ministration of ignoring repeated legal and ethical warnings in its quest to have american companies build dozens of nuclear power plants across the kingdom potentially at the risk of spreading nuclear weapons reallocations are made in a twenty four page report from the house oversight and reform committee. joins us live now from washington d.c. our roles this is a damning report implicating some of the people closest to the president what more
10:02 pm
can you tell us about. well barbara this is the cover page for the twenty four page draft interim report from the house oversight committee and you really need a big chart to track all of the people who are alleged to be pushing for a deal between the united states and saudi arabia that would involve the sale of u.s. nuclear reactor technology to saudi arabia with out going through congress and that is a requirement under a law that was passed back in the one nine hundred fifty s. the atomic energy act even though this law has been on the books for more than sixty years it is alleged in this report that members of the trumpet ministration past and current including the former national security advisor michael flynn pushed to try to get this deal to come to fruition even though there was considerable pushback from ethics lawyers and other legal advisers within the
10:03 pm
trumpet ministration telling them that they can't just do this just because they think it might be a good idea because it's alleged that it might make potentially billions of dollars for several outside companies that have an interest in trying to expand their business across the middle east and wasn't just explain to us for one of the committee be looking at exactly going forward. well here is what's happened barbara a number of whistleblowers who work inside the trumpet ministration have gone to the house oversight committee and said all of these discussions all of these e-mails all of these meetings all of these efforts are happening despite our repeated warnings despite our repeated concerns that they are trying to essentially breach the law and do so in order so that some people can try to make money off of it so what they have done is gone to the committee which in turn says it's going to
10:04 pm
hold hearings it's now going to be asking the white house the commerce department the energy department which is in charge of maintaining the country's nuclear energy policy the state department as well as a number of private companies for documents proving or disproving the allegations brought forward by these whistleblowers the committee is also expecting to hold hearings and they say that they're going to be sending all subpoenas to witnesses and to those who are alleged to be involved in this but certainly it is a top of mind now here in washington all of the major media reporting on this case because their level of alleged corruption that is being outlined in this draft report is simply overwhelming and be interesting to see how it develops for the moment roseland jordan washington thank you thank you sounds prime minister has rejected india's accusations that his country is behind so as these car bombing in
10:05 pm
this few to kashmir region which killed forty one indian paramilitary soldiers imran khan said pakistan would retaliate if india launched an attack in response to the bombing but he also offered to cooperate with his neighbor to investigate the bombing and ask for evidence suggesting pakistani involvement india's foreign minister dismissed his remarks we are not surprised. that the prime minister of pakistan refuses to acknowledge the attack on our security forces and. as an act of terrorism prime minister of pakistan has neither chosen to condemn this ainus act not condoled with the beaded family's disclaiming any link between the terrorist attack and pakistan is an oft repeated excuse by pakistan the pakistani prime minister has ignored claims made by the gesture moment as well as by the terrorists who perpetrated this china scream it is
10:06 pm
a very known fact that gesture moment and its leader muscle are based in pakistan this should be sufficient proof for pakistan to take action when a moment fails you mean will report in india's full reaction from delhi first the hears come out in islamabad. tensions between india and pakistan remain at an all time high although dayton all far from saudi arabia and foreign minister are there out of your bag that coded rabia would use its influence to try and deescalate the crisis between india and pakistan pakistan is also not taking any chances the pakistani prime minister said daddy did not respond to the wild accusations from n.p.r. saying that it was because pakistan was holding a very significant gone friends for investment involved just on record as being attended by that so did delegation he questioned as to what would be the benefit
10:07 pm
for progress on conduct such an attack at that time which would be tantamount to separate dodging that gone friends and pakistan it's a wonder dog to india on all bilateral issues but india and he said had already been progress on golf whenever pakistan or for dialogue the prime minister said that bogged down wanted peace in the region of foreign minister also created a dating that dads could be based in their region however prime minister emraan khan also had a warning for india should they plan an attack against pakistan in the sun also today i am offering the indian government thought what is a vista geisha new do in disk each to suggest involvement of any pakistani we are ready to cooperate with you if you have any actionable intelligence to provide us with us and we will take action and it's not because we are under pressure but because they are enemies of spock's tony because they go against our interests. the

10:09 pm
went wrong. indian agencies in kashmir rely on locals for intelligence but some analysts say the goodwill needed for that intelligence has dwindled. bost five years have been a period of extremely disruptive polarizing communalistic politics now that is undermining dean violent that is what is resulting in more and more frustration and more and more recruitment. this analyst says the current intelligence agencies are understaffed and resources are mr directed it is involved in political intelligence that is involved in the hold range of other activities many of them hundred eighty to two core security as indian officials continue to blame pakistan for supporting armed groups prepared to launch attacks on indian troops critics say the government needs to take a look at its own security apparatus to prevent more deaths as jamil al jazeera you
10:10 pm
delhi. the saudi crown prince mohammed bin sad man has arrived in the indian capital new delhi met by the indian prime minister in iran there will be at the airport the two are expected to discuss investment and security issues in solomon's visit comes after a visit to mayberry pakistan and made of course the escalating tensions over kashmir we've just been discussing his visit will last for two days. u.s. politician bernie sanders has entered the twenty twenty presidential race. running for president and the seventy seven year old independent senator from vermont has launched his second bid to win the democratic party's nomination sander says he's running to defeat donald trump who read the scribed as a pathological liar and racist sanders lost the democratic nomination to hillary
10:11 pm
clinton in two thousand and sixteen who was then in turn defeated by the current president trump go live to share a town she was in washington she had so bernie failed in two thousand and sixteen of course a lot of things have changed since then what makes him think that this is the right time for him. why i guess the biggest change is he's now the front runner i think he has transformed mainstream democratic politics since twenty sixteen since his run in two and twenty sixteen where the ideas of universal health care addressing inequality environment racism sexism have now become mainstream ideas within the democratic party the centrist leadership up to up to twenty sixteen would say ots on realistic crazy ideas and we don't want to be seen as seen as extremist by the voters all the opinion polls show the voters do want one this he also has the best name recognition he has the best network fund raising the best organizational network in the country and the polls consistently show that in a match up with donald trump he would be told from very very easily so he has
10:12 pm
confidence on his side this time and he also has a different structure in the voting mechanisms within the democratic party at this time and many of his supporters still say that the system is rigged against him in favor of clinton theoretically now they haven't rule changes and i guess it all depends who we would be running against when it comes to getting the democratic presidential ticket so as far as we know who is it that he'd be running against him who could be the worst competition for. well as far as the declared candidates know well. he's still the front runner though there are a slew of candidates like. the california cory booker senator from new jersey and others who are saying look you know. very well but perhaps we need a younger more diverse candidates and a candidate who also believes in tackling inequality for example in universal health care the problem that some of these candidates have already declared and one
10:13 pm
of the reasons why we have so many declared candidates so early in the campaign season is people really want to get some momentum before bernie sanders ends of the race the problem with a face though is when you look at their records it doesn't quite add up sometimes. as a very conservative record on criminal justice cory booker has huge donations from wall street and big pharmaceutical companies what his buddies on the side that authenticity and hillary clinton discovered in twenty sixteen if people don't believe you they're not going to vote for you the only candidate who is doing better in the polls among democratic primary voters is joe biden the former vice president under barack obama he has not declared yet but if he does there we might see a rerun of that sort of that discussion about the soul of the democratic party between this new progressive momentum and that centrist leadership who don't necessarily want to change but certainly realizing that that the demographics suggest they should at least sound like that changing and it might be quite a bit about once again because a lot of the hillary clinton supporters are known for giving bernie the last time around. to be quite
10:14 pm
