four years one of the u.s. president's right hand man is sentenced for financial crimes. a new power struggle for venezuela the problems caused by alec tricity blackouts across the country. anger in yemen off terry witness to the alleged rape of a seven year old boy by fighters linked to the u.a.e. it was found murdered. and picking up the pieces what people are confronting as they try to rebuild their lives in syria. donald trump's former campaign chief has been sentenced to three years and eleven months in prison paula mann a ford was convicted in august on charges of bank and tax fraud other crimes were uncovered during u.s.
special counsel robert muller's investigation into the russian interference in the twenty six thousand presidential election a judge ordered bad afford to pay restitution of almost twenty four million dollars and another fine of fifty thousand dollars mr mann afford finally got to speak for himself to me clearly except for sponsibility for his conduct. and i think most importantly what you saw today is the same thing that we had said from day one there is absolutely no evidence that paul a man of ford was involved with any collusion with any government official from russia and our correspondent she had written has more from outside the courthouse in alexandria in the u.s. state of virginia and giving pomona for forty seven months the judge rejected the prosecution's argument that poor man a fool is a special case of criminality as far as the judge was concerned his crimes were financial crimes hiding
a bank account overseas not paying taxes and not warranting a sentence of decades in prison this will be seized upon by supporters of donald trump who said that robert was special counsel investigation is a witch and it is true robert will has found no evidence of collusion or coordination with the russians on the trump campaign either regarding non-o. for or anyone else yet we haven't seen his special report model for though this isn't quite over yet he does face sentencing next week in washington d.c. for a case very similar to this there he could face a maximum of ten years well another who was once close to donald trump is now suing for unpaid legal fees of one point nine million dollars the president's former lawyer michael cohen says the trump organization stopped paying his invoices after it became clear that he would cooperate with the moeller investigation testified before a house committee last week accusing the president of committing crimes in and out
of office. is fine as a former u.s. associate deputy attorney general with the department of justice and joins us now from washington good to have you on again. the judge had warned that there would be no leniency prosecution was calling for up to twenty four years and man of ford's got under four years what's your reaction to that. well that's exceptionally lenient i do believe that mr ellis the judge has a reputation for disliking special counsels he thinks that they're target people and then look for crimes rather than the other way around and i think you could detect some of his disdain for the prosecution during the trial itself where he would interject comments suggesting that he didn't think certain things had anything to do with russian collusion why was the special counsel going after mr mann afford for things unrelated to russian collusion was it tempting to get others
to volunteer evidence but it's very very under the guidelines that are established at least to provide some general starting point for a sentence of this sort i do think that the sentence will encourage roger stone a codefendant if you will to fight and go to trial and not to plead guilty and expectation that he could receive a lenient sentence if he is found guilty although we still don't know whether the judge in the district of columbia next week will take that three plus years and hike it to ten or more based upon money laundering and violations of the foreign agents registration act to which mr mann afford pled guilty in kind of an odd way i think lightness of the sentence makes it less likely that trump would pardon or commute the sentence something that he might have been inclined to do if he was
twenty or twenty four years mr mann afford also is in the old health shows up in a wheelchair so he had all the optics that were designed to evoke sympathy and i think that's what the sentence reveals as he had mentioned from the start judge alice had said that this amount of force what's not being punished for crimes having to do with the special special counsel miller investigation. do you think this sentencing was underlining that facts. yes i do i think that this even if it wasn't technically a violation of the guidelines clearly the justification for appointing a special prosecutor as stated by the department's charter was to investigate collusion between a russia and the trump campaign in there isn't any way you can fit you know bank fraud and tax fraud into that paradigm and i do think that even though it wasn't
stated expressly that was a very large motivating factor behind mr judge ellis is sentence i think he believed that the bank and the tax fraud were designed to force mr mann afford to make statements against mr trump which wasn't successful and the judge didn't think that was a proper tactic aboveboard bruce fein green it's great to get you on the show thank you very much. protesters have rallied in southwest yemen for a fourth day over the killing of witness and a child rape case demonstrators say rough i've done but was killed by fighters from a group backed by the united arab emirates he was a witness in the case of the legend of the seven year old boy by fighters loyal to the u.a.e. yemen's government has set up a committee to investigate this. and my son was murdered his kids took him
right in front of my eyes outside the front door they didn't even use my presence i was looking at them and i was crying that they took him away an entire unit grabbing one man i called on the president to ensure they brought to justice and that my son finally gets rich. william lawrence is a professor of political science and international affairs at george washington university and he says there seems to be several allegations of human rights abuses by the back to armed groups in yemen. already each side in the yemen conflict is a coalition of forces with a variety of interests already the u.a.e. and the saudi interests in yemen differ and the public safety forces ne'eman have a course in aden have a different posture than these anti-terrorist forces so you have a wide variety of armed groups with different interests the us a contingent in yemen is large it's been involved in
a number of atrocities across the country and so right now what we're seeing is the outflow of unbridled military forces with no checks on their actions and this is likely to get worse before it gets better because we're starting to see you know an exposure of the human rights abuses of these various groups there was a recent report which has gotten a lot of tension in washington by m r w a human rights group cataloguing a lot of the killing of civilians and abuse against civilians by forces and allied forces and this is of course increasing in washington the. negative portrayals of what the forces are doing on the ground in yemen a major power cut in venezuela has plunged nearly all of the country into darkness president nicolas maduro his government blamed the outage on sabotage by so-called extremists the state's own delicacy provider seven attack on the gori dam was the
cost of the power outages and parents just have become common and minutes about love but officials say the blackout was one of the biggest yet. well germany and the u.s. are warning of more sanctions against venezuela's president nicolas maduro washington says it will target banks supporting the government and germany's foreign minister says europe is not ruling out further sanctions the diplomatic standoff between the majority government and western leaders backing the opposition. has intensified after venezuela expelled the german ambassador on wednesday now as the politicians battle for power venezuelans are struggling to survive they're trying to cope with shortages of food medicine and the world's highest inflation rate and some children are going to extraordinary lengths to attend school by crossing the border into neighboring colombia and all apollo has this report from cook at. most
of the children waiting in this launch or from venezuela they travel across the colombian border every day just to attend school but since venezuelan authorities blocked off access through the official border crossing students are having to find other ways to get across thirteen year old catalina russell says she was scared the first time she had to sneak over the river that divides the two countries but it's the only way she can get to class where any awareness that it was dark we were very scared at people were terrified we didn't know what was going to happen is a very difficult situation because you wouldn't expect to have to cross an unequal rate school. it doesn't mean you're at this elementary school in kuku to columbia only a short distance from the venezuelan border ninety five percent of students are from venezuela the school's director had a much better bessie says since the border has been closed attendance has dropped significantly as a single sample inland in this way these children have problems in venezuela because there aren't enough schools because teachers don't make enough money and most have quit and left so children migrate to our country especially this school
because it's the closest one to the border. and if you get outside the building parents are waiting to drop off more children once their lessons are over many of them will make the journey across the border back into venezuela and leave when we cross back if there is any kind of conflict or gunfire out children's lives or our lives are in a great risk or nearly faculty members at the school say many of the children who arrive for class haven't eaten and it's become part of the institutions mandate to make sure that children are fed before they begin their lessons half of the students in this class did not show up to school today the director of the school says that a humanitarian corridor between been a swell and colombia is desperately needed to guarantee young but as well as students access to a formal education. an estimated three thousand children are travelling to and from venezuela across illicit routes every day.
