it's parliament's fault not hers that breaks it is in the mess that it's in but quite apart from that this is a set of menu options that she has delivered her vision of the choices that lie ahead either vote on her deal or deal going through possibly next week or the week after if not that well then they've got to find a consensus on a plan b. that would require agreeing to take part in european parliamentary elections by april the twelfth in order for the e.u. to deliver a longer extension if they can't do that well then they face no deal on april the twelfth and the final option of all that would be left to this government in this parliament to decide perhaps to cancel breaks it altogether by revoking article fifty these are the choices as to reason may seize them she hopes of course that m.p.'s will rally behind her deal with the numbers it has to be said on not looking good for the prime minister the french president on has come in for major criticism

continuing around whose. cases are reported in mozambique as local residents join the desperate struggle to rescue thousands still stranded by cyclonic die. and despite the rain algerians fill the streets again keeping up their demands for president beautifully to go. on now we begin with our breaking news story this hour special counsel investigation into russian interference in the twenty sixteen u.s. election has reached its conclusion has submitted his report to the u.s. attorney general william barr it looks into whether the campaign colluded with russia to influence the outcome of this election let's get more now from mike hanna in washington mike old ready we're hearing noises from well certainly in this case a republican in congress and i suppose now pressure is going to mount about making
the findings of this investigation public. that is going to be the key issue and that is ultimately up to the attorney general william who operating within justice department guidelines will decide what to make public whether sections are made public or whether indeed the report is made public with reductions now the attorney general has sent letters to the judiciary committees of both house and senate confirming that he has received the report from robert miller he also says in that letter which is the one thing that has been made public that he will sit down with his predecessor as well as robert mueller himself to decide what exactly is going to be handed over to congress now congress has made very clear that it wants this report to be made public in its entirety it wants to see the report in the entirety we all the be hearing from democratic leaders in congress speaker of the house
nancy pelosi as well as the minority leader in senate chuck schumer that there must be no instance where the report is first shown to the white house before being delivered to congress so already there's a little bit of infighting here but it is twenty two months since robert muller start to his investigation this report from patty culhane. this is the man who has the u.s. president clearly worried robert mueller the special counsel investigating him his family and his campaign president donald trump has complained and tweeted about him and his investigators more than eleven hundred times by one count calling it a witch hunt hoax the greatest political scandal of all time but trump can actually blame himself for miller having the job in the first place the f.b.i. had already started a national security investigation into potential collusion between russia and the
trump campaign the man who launched it was later fired and he mccabe is making some very serious claims as to why we had information that led us to believe the. there might be a threat to national security in this case that the president himself might in fact be a threat to the united states' national security but it was only after the president stepped in to fire his then f.b.i. director james comey the moeller was appointed now looking into collusion and possible obstruction of justice because of coma's claim that the president had asked him to and investigation into the national security advisor michael flynn it's illegal to interfere in a federal investigation trump himself seemed to confirm in an interview with n.b.c. news that komi was fired because of the russian investigation in fact when i decided to just do it i said to myself i said you know. this rush or thing with trump and russia is a made up story it's an excuse by the democrats for having lost an election that
they should've won then he later told russian officials in the oval office that firing komi took the pressure off it didn't miller has rounded up those closest to the president his former national security adviser deputy campaign manager former lawyer and fixer of all pled guilty his campaign manager was found guilty of a litany of crimes and his long time friend roger stone is also facing charges of mine to congress and impeding the investigation the president has another phrase he often uses when it comes to the investigation it was no solution with the russians there was nothing there has been no collusion they won't find any collusion this is no good whatsoever there are high expectations that miller's report will detail if that is actually true paddy calling al-jazeera washington. i suppose what's fascinating now is that there are different legal principles to try and balance in the situation but i suppose the key question for congress will be whether the.
robot is well if he would pursue criminal charges against president trump and if he doesn't do that is it because of a lack of evidence or is it because it's not in the country's interest for a sitting president to be indicted. now robert mueller has operated under very strict justice department guidelines which have been established in previous cases this isn't like the star prosecution for example which involved bill clinton those guidelines are is that robert muller will recommend in his report to the attorney general where they he will recommend to criminal charges to be brought against one or a number of individuals or whether he declines to bring such criminal proceedings and he has to give the attorney general reasons for that particular decision so that is a very clear cut issue robert muller operating very much as a neutral figure in effect his role is simply to recommend to the attorney general
whether or not a criminal proceeding should be continued as a result of his investigation now those are the details that the attorney general should provide to congress once it's provided to congress obviously then it becomes public but before then there may be senior levels of congress involved in briefings with the attorney general all of this is something that's going to play out over the coming days but one must remember that there was a unanimous vote in the house month insisting that this report be made public in its entirety we have also heard from president trump that he wants the report to be made public because he insists it will prove his position that there is no collusion a last point to is that six hundred seventy two days since began his investigation on average president trump has tweeted about this investigation twice on every single day merriam well they thank you very much mike hanna with the latest on this
story from washington thank you mike. so over a week since psycho a die hit mozambican zimbabwe and desperation is growing among the survivors an estimated one point seven million people are affected many of whom need food water and shelter in mozambique which was the worst hit two hundred ninety three people have now been confirmed dead but it's feared that the death toll could the death toll could far exceed a thousand the devastated port city of the era has become a center for the frantic efforts to rescue thousands still trapped by the floodwaters in eastern zimbabwe the official number of dead from the floods and mudslides is two hundred fifty nine and another two hundred seventeen people missing aid agencies say they are running out of time cases of cholera have already been reported in the era as well as of rise in malaria infections marcum web has
been to a village affected by the floods west of wives are still waiting for help. this community is in desperate need of help about half an hour's walk from here is a river and all of the ground between there and here is completely flat and it's completely flat very far beyond so shortly after the cyclon hit mozambique this area was affected by lethal flash flooding the water was coming in so fast the people couldn't run if they tried to run they'd be swept away before they could reach higher ground so these are the survivors. the lucky ones spend three or four days standing kneedeep in water others who are out of that that have to climb trees to survive. may muddy in the. tree. people is edging discreetly. help me help me all old people no one. came and
instead did the fraidy saturday sunday. coming out. by diddy and other people is in there. and other people come in monday at least ten people died in this village many of them small children who weren't strong enough to withstand the strong currents of the flowing water and now that the water levels receded people are beginning to find the bodies of their loved ones trapped in trees or another deborah meanwhile the survivors desperately need food homes were destroyed crops were destroyed finally some food has arrived from the national disaster agency that's not nearly enough to go around and the government says it doesn't have nearly enough resources to feed the people here in the like this all over central mozambique. a week on and a staggering number of people are still stranded in mozambique son clinging to
trees and rooftops many local residents are doing all they can to help those trapped by the floodwaters as for me the miller reports from the era. this is a domicile a man's fourth trip to boozy in two days the fisherman is using his boat to risk you as many people as he can who are stranded in the flood hit area after cyclonic die struck mustn't be. water now reaches as high as eleven meters sums up the support when i first saw women with babies on their backs crying for help saying they were dying i knew i had to do something about what i saw there was a catastrophe and they reminded me of two thousand and eight when another disaster struck. i'm sort of. on the boat is a mother desperate to save her child she's come from the capital market to she last received word from her daughter days ago but there's been nothing since. yes as a mother i had to make this bold decision even though the rest of my family was
against me coming here nobody thought i could survive this but i have to save my daughter and grandchild the area is vast flooding stretches for one hundred twenty five kilometers. hours later and from the dark of thing to whistle in the distance alerts us to people calling for help as soon as the boat reaches them they pleads to get on they say they're exhausted they've not slept for days women children and the elderly are brought on board first hungry and thirsty it hasn't taken much time to fill the boat about two hundred people have been rescued and more want to get on but this simply no space. up among those who have found a place on the boat is a dire her daughter and grandchild that had to leave her son in law behind he's a doctor and says there are too many people who need his help in boozy on the boat they do what they can to help the injured finally.
