lagerfeld danis at the age of eighty five. in the welcome to the program u.s. president donald trump's former national security advisor and other white house officials are accused of ignoring legal advice in a bid to sell nuclear technology to saudi arabia that's according to a new report released by u.s. house democrats now they accuse administration officials of pushing for american companies to build thousands of nuclear power plants across the kingdom the efforts were in defiance of legal and ethical warnings that included concerns the saudis would use u.s. technology to develop a nuclear weapon mike hanna joins us live now from washington d.c. and has been following the story said that ming reports implicating some of the people closest to the president just explain to us how badly these findings are for

particular individual. well on the surface of it it's explain lee damning this is an extensive report and what's breathtaking about it is the detail that is provided names dates types of correspondence relating to the whole issue but one must remember that this is just the beginning the first salvo in what is likely to be a lengthy process this the first step in what the house committee insists is going to be an extensive investigation into this whole affair of essentially the. members of the trump administration and this soche it's attempting to circumvent congress and provide nuclear technology and information to saudi arabia now there are a number of names in the report who've already been the subject of the special counsel's inquiries paul man a foot name may be familiar he is facing conviction in the coming months gates has been indicted michael flynn himself pleaded guilty to giving false information to
1:03 am
the f.b.i. so these are just some of the names you also have the name of energy secretary rick perry who is connected directly to some of these companies then there's the president's son in law and close adviser jared cushion or that report indicates that a nuclear powered company a subsidiary actually paid for an apartment building that he home on fifth avenue new york in the last couple of years so this all the distractions as i said to tazz extensive detail but this is the beginning of the committee now has to conduct a full investigation to take it further but after that investigation like what could the actual consequences be for those named in that report. well the consequences could be immense so once again the first step is to ascertain whether or not these individuals all these members of trump's administration attempted to
1:04 am
circumvent the atomic security act this is an act that governs the release of u.s. technology to foreign countries and specifically prohibits the release of such technology for the advancement of nuclear power so that would be the first consequent should the inquiry come to an end but what is happening at this particular phase so not to get ahead of ourselves is the committee has sent a number of inquiries to a number of agencies including the number of secretaries as well of energy secretary defense secretary and to the chief of staff the acting chief of staff of the white house asking a number of questions and asking for more detailed information in the letter to the chief of the wives star for example it points out that a private entity promoting nuclear efforts in saudi arabia i p three send documents directly to their national security advisor michael flynn for president trump to
1:05 am
approve as recently as february the twelve twenty nineteen that's a week ago president trump participated in a white house meeting initiated by i p three international so the committees asked for all document documentation pertaining to this it's asked for details of president trump's meeting back in march one thousand nine hundred ninety eight twenty seventeen with the crown prince of saudi crown prince as i asked for all sorts of exhaustive detail similar debtors would have gone to the secretary of defense to the secretary of energy all of the still be collated and importantly to probably the first step by the committee is to bring these whistleblowers into the house to go on record giving the information in person that they have provided to the committee on the whistleblower process. mike hanna with the latest on the developing story in washington think here pakistan's prime minister has rejected

delhi. us politician bernie sanders has entered the twenty twenty presidential race. i'm running for president the seventy seven year old independent senator from vermont has launched his second bid to win the democratic party's nomination sanders says he's running to defeat donald trump who he describes as a pathological liar and racist sanders lost the democratic nomination to hillary clinton in two thousand and sixteen many democrats though say the circumstances of bernie sanders this time around are very different we spoke to john f. injured the former communications director at the democratic national convention it's a whole different ballgame although it does feel very familiar in some unpleasant ways i think there are a lot of democratic primary voters who would really like to put twenty sixteen
