to be seen to get back to your question his base is going to say see the deep state the democrats everybody has got to get the president we still support him but from the groups that he needs democrats and independents they are have already turned against this president poll after poll shows the vast majority thinks that he should not get a second term in office so a lot depends on who the democrats put forward this will be a temporary bump for him among his base but i don't think there's really anything he can do to turn the tide for the democrats and the many of the independents who say they simply cannot support him his policies or his behavior. pedicle hayne with the latest from washington patty thank you. so the miller investigation they didn't find any evidence of collusion but it didn't fit in stay or six members of trump's inner circle and twenty eight foreign nationals let's take a look at some of the key players the president's former personal lawyer michael cohen pleaded guilty to lying to congress and has been sentenced to hush money
payments that he made on trump's behalf former campaign chair paul man of ford has been convicted of financial fraud he also shared private polling data with a man connected to russian intelligence trumps first national security adviser that's michael flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the f.b.i. about his conversations with the russian ambassador during the presidential transition and comes close friend roger stone has been indicted for lying about his efforts to contact them week uniques he allegedly wanted to know how hacked the democratic e-mails could help trump's campaign twelve russian intelligence officers were also charged over that hack which targeted the chairman of hillary clinton's campaign and thirteen russians were charged with manipulating social media to help trump's election campaign well jed sugarman is a professor of law at fordham university and joins us now via skype from new york mr goodman good to see you again we've just read the list of the people linked to
trump who have been invited indicted because of robert mueller is investigation does it surprise you that there is that list of people that are indicted many very close to the president but then that the investigation actually find anything they could pin to trump himself let me be clear i am surprised but i want to also if you'll allow me just be a little more precise because this is now two times you described is not finding anything or that there's no evidence and i just want to be clear i'm going back to barnes letter he said that moller didn't stand. average that there was a conspiracy that's a different legal standard right so you can have some evidence but you but or muller could have found some evidence and the question that is not addressed in this report is how much evidence muller was requiring to in order to make certain recommendations so that's one problem with the way barr has written this letter is it only quotes two and
a half sentences from muller it doesn't give context for the evidence or the standard he was using so so let me be clear in the a lawyer is going to ask whether not only whether there is some evidence but whether there is enough evidence to get an indictment and that's probable cause there's another question that's implicit in the letter which is the standard of evidence beyond whether you can go to trial and prove it beyond a reasonable doubt so one can have some evidence of a crime but still decide not to indict because that would be too high a threshold and not worth it for a prosecutor to invest this resources we just need to see the full report to understand what evidence was on on that balance what sets he think need to be taken now so that the democrats really everyone gets to see the whole report yet great question so let me see if i can game it out step by step the next step i imagine is
that the house is going to the house is now run by democrats house committee chairman and house committees can subpoena. the report itself and say we want to read the reports we want and secondly they may issue a subpoena to robert mueller and ask him to appear before the committee for an interview it is then plausible that bart will not allow the report to be delivered and he might say one there hasn't been sufficient time to review and redacted for national security concerns or executive privilege bar might also say we're not going to release any of it because we don't have to or it's covered by executive privilege or trump's lawyers could say that and also they could say we're not going to allow muller to testify so then your then the next step will be judicial proceedings you know the the house will go to court and just to give you a timeline when watergate under nixon had a similar battle over the white house the oval office tapes that process took
between four and five months to start the litigation and trial court and make it all the way up to the supreme court so we may not know we may not see any of this report for months and it's possibly might not ever see it given how courts might decide this question. just a final edit reaction from you are on something that's come out of the schumer palosi statement of asli that democrats are on the mall of report and this is about the attorney general they say he is not a neutral observer and is not in a position to make objective determinations just a reaction from you to that statement please so we know that bar wrote a memo to president trump at the beginning of this investigation saying that there was not a possibility that a president could have struck justice by firing a an official like call me that is a problem if they if they turn in general is going to maintain the appearance of
being unbiased and so i think it is reasonable to ask given that he reached out of nowhere to write that memo to tromp. whether he was really a neutral observer in a legal sense and also in a political sense so so this frames the fight that's coming up next as sugarmann professor of law at fordham university joining us from new york sir thank you very much for having shared your take expertise with us thank you and now let's bring in james boyce political historian specializing in u.s. politics been with with us here in the studio it's been a couple of hours now since the news has a broken again just your reaction overall to the to this well i think she donald trump is benefiting in many ways from the timing and the style within which this is being released to the general public this isn't the whole report as we've been saying time and again we're reporting he's being based upon
a single four page document released by his attorney general which is the interpretation of that report which is going to be politically. considered by both democrats and republicans for the very reasons that you're suggesting nancy pelosi and chuck schumer are suggesting. if. i would suggest all of the news relating to the investigation and that you listed that long litany of individuals who've been indicted in some cases a sentence if that all come out tonight will be talking about my goodness the national security advisor to the president's attorneys the president's campaign manager all these people now suddenly under indictment i think the president has benefited by the fact that that has been coming out a drip by drip basis and the headline coming out of this is allowed the white house to spin no collusion which we've seen and as was rightly pointed out there from the pressure from forum isn't necessarily the case but the idea that the democrats are going to have to get down into the weeds a look at the fine details and the fine print here to make their case makes it more
difficult because most americans won't read the four page letter it's possible as we're reporting that many americans might never get to see the full report for more so if the white house can keep this nice and simple and say look see no collusion nothing to see here and the democrats are going to start digging around for legal documents etc etc if you can make it very easy for the republicans moving forward to keep this very simple you will be seen the advert they've cut to try and talk about this being look it's lies it's smoke etc etc you know this this is going to play very easy for the republicans moving forward so are you saying that even if the end it does seem like the rich the democrats will pursue this and try to get the full read more and look at in detail i think that that might damage them politically even if they end up finding more than what i think is that moving into the twenty twenty lection cycle and don't forget a year from now the iowa caucus or new hampshire primaries of already occurred if the republicans can take this very simple and make this look no collusion no collusion you don't have to get into the details about this look we can release
excerpts from this that favors them if the democrats only defense is we've got to get all these reports always documents out it makes it very very difficult for them to make their case it's a far easier case for the white house to come back with whether it's right or wrong but politically it's important to know it's easier for them to make the case i think to be america. an electorate which is of course all the matters weeks here in europe and say what are we like the only people who are going to vote for don't trump for reelection are americans and that case i think is easy for the republicans to make at this point tonight it is some democrats were even talking about impeachment before the reporting that's gone away hasn't it well let's be honest impeachment is a word has been thrown around like sheep confetti over the last six to twelve months to be impeached does not mean removed from office an impeachment process would be very easy for the democrats to begin in the house of representatives where you only need a simple majority they could impeach donald trump quite frankly almost tomorrow along party lines you move it to the senate where you cannot possibly get a super majority that you need to remove donald trump from office and that is i
think why nancy pelosi realizes this is a no nonstarter because just as with bill clinton twenty years ago this simply isn't the numbers to remove donald trump from office so why even try at this point . interesting to see how all of this develops as a james boys political historian thank you so much now and some more good news for president trumpet the leaders of romania and honduras are following his lead and saying that they will recognize jerusalem as israel's capital the announcements were made of the american israel public affairs committee annual conference in washington romania plans to move its embassy to jerusalem while honduras will open an office there for trade and cooperation the move has been welcomed by israeli politicians but will anger palestinians want east jerusalem to be the capital of a future state. now a pro-military party has unexpectedly taking the lead in thailand's first election since a military takeover nearly five years ago with almost ninety percent of votes counted
preliminary results give palang a patch at the party seven point six million votes the pale thai party of the garden is loyal to the ousted prime minister thaksin shinawatra is close behind on seven point one million while a new party appealing to young people its called future forward is on five point one million critics though say the who does new electoral system gives the military a built in advantage the election is only for the lower house of parliament the senate is entirely appointed by the military leadership and your government is also blige to follow a twenty year national strategy aimed at economic development it was pushed through parliament under the military's watch scott heiler reports from bangkok. thailand an elected leader for the last five years voting early on election day. is looking to keep his job through the ballot box he became prime minister after the military coup in two thousand and fourteen he's the candidate of the military backed party.
i hope everyone who was in the election today to exercise your rights everyone wants democracy therefore everyone should exercise their rights into transparency the opposition party put ty linked to exiled former prime minister talks and has won every election since two thousand and one in early counting it's neck and neck with holland. and a new political party in this election a future forward which targeted young and first time voters is also enjoying stronger than expected results thailand's oldest political party the democrats which has had a strong base in bangkok suffer disappointing results its leader and former prime minister obvious at the weights are resigned a few hours after the polls closed the military government had a big head start going into election day the constitution gives military leaders the power to appoint the two hundred fifty members so. it voters elect the five hundred seat lower house the number needed to form a government is three hundred seventy six some see this election as
a building process back to democracy after five years of military rule why i said this election is not just about choosing a candidate but it's also about really creating the foundation for democracy. my feeling. very difficult for me to shoot. my live in the. same people many people in thailand i see maybe about. fifty percent who did not make the election commission says sixty five percent of registered voters made their way to the polls a practice to show transparency each ballot is read aloud before it's being recorded now this process is being replicated it more than ninety two thousand polling stations across thailand for volatility after the election and it's very possible because the numbers you know the rules are stacked in the military government's favor but the numbers the electoral numbers are stacked on the opposition's favor so we have some kind of some tension there some some deadlock
and that deadlock could do more than frustrate many ties it could also make it difficult for the government to run the country it's got harder al-jazeera bangkok mollies armed forces chief and several top commanders have been sacked after more than one hundred thirty four people including women and children were killed in an attack on a village a local mayor says gunmen dressed as traditional hunters raided although sagal village of cattle herders in central mali they also attacked another funny village nearby ethnic violence has flared up in mali regions particularly since groups like al qaeda and i sold began operating there the prime minister announced the sacking of the military commanders after an emergency cabinet meeting. kenya's government has warned that up to a million people are at risk of starvation as a severe drought grips the northern half of the country rainfall has been low for
