6:00 am
on a potential investigation into democratic presidential rival joe biden now president trump also said that he will be transparent on this matter but that he also demands transparency from the democrats and more specifically from joe biden regarding his activities with ukraine he made many of the comments during the course of that speech but i will now go chopra chancy for a summary of what we heard and so that was a. well perhaps a long winded attempt to really change the conversation from what seems to be a brewing scandal to focus more on america's economy and lots of meetings at the u.n. . right because he did that ask questions in the full knowledge that he would be honest about the current controversy about ukraine and it would cause a very different donald trump than the one we usually see this is like
6:01 am
a disappointed adult he's only what i'm very he's just sad i'm a bit bemused and disappointed and in what's been going on particularly that as far as he's concerned what was in his words a wonderful conversation with the ukrainian president is being spun and he's pointing to the transcript that he was what the white house calls a transcript was in fact a memorandum it was it basically based on voice recognition software and the memories of various officials it was very clear in what was released of this wasn't on the transcript but as far as he's concerned that clears it clears the look at no threats here there was no pushing that was there minas lindsey graham that the right wing senator who was formerly doldrums great enemy and great supporter looked at the transcript who knew you could be so nice to someone what are people talking about when they say that you were threatening the ukrainian president with a quid pro quo either investigate the bidens or don't get your military aide as far as the republican line is concerned that that simply isn't borne out in the
6:02 am
transcript or what they call a transcript which was in the transcript that was released in the accounts that was was released the problem is as you mentioned. in that whatever that was about that account of the conversation it was pretty clear this also was william ball the attorney general being involved is rudy giuliani don't trust personal lawyer and thinks he's going to go to a concert the area perhaps that he wants his personal lawyer to be involved with as some sort of inquiry conducted by the ukrainian government into the bidens so that it stops well that's where the smoking gun for the democrats is because actually that when there is a d.o.j. investigation into the origins of the russian investigations or plausibly you can say well that william ball was involved with the ukrainians and maybe that was something to do with that but the fact that rudy giuliani is involved that's the point that makes it seem wait this isn't just about justice again bolt from seem to be suggesting that the only reason he was also going about this was to get transparency to understand the corruption of others to try and get to the bottom of
6:03 am
what's been going on in the interest of america and in the interest of american national security while this riddle giuliani is involved. am don't trump is citing various theories which may have been discredited elsewhere and then things got a bit more murky so that's the problem but then he also went into a rather interesting narrative and i think this this is quite an effective press conference certainly for his base and the other bit of the narrative is look look look when the democrats came out with this they came when we're at the u.n. general assembly and then he went through all those all those supposed to achieve months at the u.n. general assembly over the last week this is just simply to distract from all the work we're doing we're trying to get things done and they're always just trying to distract us and that is the message that we've been getting pretty consistently evidence nancy pelosi and to formal impeachment inquiry whatever that actually means. on tuesday night is that look this is they call beat me at the ballot box they're going to keep on distracting they're going to keep on talking about
6:04 am
impeachment but we're getting things done i'm in fact in the last hour or so we got a tweet a very triumphant tweet from the trump campaign saying that in the last 24 hours since the impeachment inquiry was announced it's raised $5000000.00 so we're back where we usually are opponents of trump's a smoking gun supporters are trying to say this is just a hoax we have to see how the inquiry changes people's opinions. thank you very much you have returned 3 and washington. of course you've been talking about the impeachment process and how something like that was well just run through some of the details on this it does begin in the house of representatives which debates in votes on whether to bring charges against the president if the vote is successful a trial of sorts presided over by the chief justice of the u.s. supreme court is then taken to the senate a 2 thirds majority vote is needed in the 100 member senate to convict and remove a president impeachments a rare out of 35 attempts only 2 presidents have been impeached and neither removed
6:05 am
from office a 3rd president richard nixon resigned while those proceedings were under way well scott anderson is an adjunct professor of law at georgetown university law center joins us now from washington 1st of all how damaging is the memo released by the white house today particularly in the way it implicates attorney general william barr on the department of justice. well i think the memo released today is particularly damaging for the trump administration and for the white house perhaps a little bit less so for the justice department and attorney general are simply because his conscious role is a little less clear from the very face of the document you see president trump engaging in a conversation with president selenski where president selenski asks can i have your support in pursuing certain arms purchases from the united states and president trump immediately pivots into i need a favor from you it's this sort of quick relationship and transaction that then
6:06 am
leads the president to encourage selenski to pursue an investigation into former vice president biden and his son's role as well as a couple of other items related to a server that president trump believes hillary clinton's e-mails and d.n.c. e-mails maybe of president on that really lends itself this very easy to conceal the narrative where president trump is pretty clearly leveraging his influence and his ability not as i know it until i see it to my mind these requests right but there is no explicit demand of an investigation specifically in exchange for aid money so no explicit reference to that nearly $400000000.00 of foreign aid. explicit reference is not the standard you can read the document on its face it is pretty clear the sort of relationship that the president is proposing here and it's not one that requires much of an inference quite frankly for anyone who sit down and read it and most importantly hear these requests the president is making even
6:07 am
if they were favor they're nothing to do with the national interest of the united states or the foreign policy interests there are things whose sole purpose is to advance his own electoral interests and that simply is not they can do but you can see how this night president could have an argument another head of city that be another woman for the other side that there is some public interest in possibly uncovering revealing a conflict of interest on joe biden's pots and and any conflict of interest on his part in relation to his activities in ukraine given that he is a presidential rival. when the united states generates a foreign policy or a policy position and particularly when it does so in a way that can directly impact the civil liberties of a u.s. citizen it does it through a process where it evaluates it with its officials it considers internally and the develops a position that it events is then through standard channels none of that appears to have occurred here this appears to been primarily a white house generated initiative and that sort of action is exactly the sort of
6:08 am
thing that the president was warned against by his own white house counsel during the course of the investigation he has chosen to pursue here it's a much more straightforward sort of problem for the president than the very fairly complicated allegations against him arising from the more investigation and for that reason i think has the potential be much more damaging do you think that articles of impeachment will eventually be be filed i mean obviously we are in the initial stages right now but what is evil from the evidence that we have and we have to be wary that this is not an actual transcript but based on contemporaneous notes and what you've read what is your feeling about to close impeachment actually going ahead. you know right now we're still in the stage investigation more facts should be uncovered a fuller narrative should be presented but from the facts we've seen from this document we've been provided today it's a pretty damning case and i have to think there are substantial chance of articles of impeachment coming forward from the house of representatives which of course is
6:09 am
controlled by the democratic party and requires only a simple majority to move forward the odds of removal in the senate much slimmer probably in very unlikely but articles of impeachment coming from the house of representatives i think more likely from the scenario all right well thank you for sharing your views with us scott anderson adjunct professor of law right georgetown university law center joining us from washington thank you. now iran's president has accused the u.s. of merciless economic terrorism saying he'll never hold talks with washington while his country is under american sanctions has amrani is addressed the u.n. general assembly while fears rise of a simmering tensions in the persian gulf iran's 2015 nuclear deal has been unraveling ever since u.s. president donald trump pulled out last year the iranian government has retaliated by scaling back some of its commitments to that pact. now reports. his speech was closely watched by friends and rivals looking for any indication that
6:10 am
iran is willing to talk to the u.s. but the president has a low honey made it clear he won't be the president donald trump as long as the u.s. continues to impose sanctions model boomers are going to me harm they call us to negotiations when they run away from treaties and deal with our response under sanctions is negative iran's leader has called on regional neighbors to join an alliance to secure freedom of navigation in the strait of hormuz where much of the world's oil supply passes to. know how to exclude the u.s. from taking part in what he called the coalition of hope but the u.s. and saudi arabia have quickly dismissed the proposal. the european union is keen to cool the tension in the gulf and prevent further escalation its top diplomat for the recovery greenie says she hopes the 2015 year clear deal will continue to be respected despite ongoing differences we will continue to work together with unity
6:11 am
of purpose to try and preserve it without ignoring the challenges that trump administration is ramping on iran every one of us secretary of state. said sanctions and isolation would continue until iran's nuclear ambitions occur that is long as around medicine behavior continues and continues sanctions will not be lifted they will be taken and the u.s. and saudi arabia continue to blame iran for the attacks on the world's largest oil processing plant in the kingdom 11 days ago. saudi diplomats have stepped up their pressure saying all options against iran are on the table iran's behavior cannot continue like this iran must abide by international law iran must comply with rule based international order and the iran's aggressive behavior must be checked
6:12 am
the attacks took out nearly half of saudi oil production which the state oil company is rushing to restore as the u.s. continues to build the case against iran or how many warned against any attack saying greta will quickly follow the attacks on saudi oil installations threatened to be a game changer and could lead to a major confrontation but the e.u. russia china and some countries in the middle east say the crisis should be solved through dialogue and that ask a nation would only further destabilize the region. new york. british prime minister has challenged opposition parties to call a motion of no confidence in him which could lead to a general election arce johnson has been facing repeated calls to resign over the supreme court's ruling that his move to suspend parliament was illegal and i'm saying he has more now from westminster. parliament spac the protesters are out
6:13 am
again and inside the gloves are off and the knives are out back from the usa came the prime minister attempting to show he's still in charge the public don't want another referendum. what they want and what they demand is that we all know the promise we made to the voters to respect the 1st referendum. to move or to put the brakes behind us he was roundly heckled they were shouting at him to resign the judges concluded there was no reason and i quote let alone a good reason for the prime minister to have shut down parliament. after yesterday's ruling mr speaker the prime minister should have done the honorable thing and resigned. i
6:14 am
i i. keep trying to blame the opposition for blocking bricks it's insists he's making progress with the european union his opponents say he's lying every single thing that boris johnson's done since he became prime minister has gone wrong for him he's lost every single vote in parliament cost over $20.00 of his own m.p.'s who now have no loyalty to him and he's been accused of misleading the queen and unlawfully suspending parliament it's one thing him saying he wants to get on with his plans but in politics everything's about momentum and at the moment he hardly has any surrender. johnson repeatedly tried to infuriate his political enemies he described the opposition bill which demands he seek an extension to bret's it from the european union as the surrender acts that language surrendering to europe is used by the far right and many m.p.'s have faced death threats as
6:15 am
a result consequently the atmosphere inside parliament became furious. by. some to democrats and appears that i tell the prime minister that question is must. be trying. to meet with moderates how lonely it has to come from the prime minister. to make matters worse johnson described those concerns about m.p. safety as humbug all in all it was the most angry parliamentary session anyone can remember the government accuses the opposition of running away from an election they say he broke the law over suspending parliament and fear he might do it again to the sense of democracy unraveling the whole thing is a horror show lawrence leigh al jazeera london paul brennan joins us live now from westminster and johnston certainly came out fighting tonight. well the tone was
6:16 am
set early i have to say at the start of proceedings when the attorney general geoffrey cox came to the to spatchcock so on in his booming baritone voice this train to paris told the opposition benches facing him that palm and it was a disgrace he was shouted at the fury of response from the labor m.p.'s was something to behold in certain responses barrie shamans for example where he said how dare you lecture us about morality you are the ones who have been found to have acted unlawfully by the supremes course you know it was really furious stuff the atmosphere calmed down a little bit in the afternoon when a succession of cabinet ministers came to parliament answer questions about their specific speciality particular michael gove who's the prime minister sorry the minister for exiting the european union but then the atmosphere really soured considerably when boris johnson and said the chamber and was totally unapologetic about the actions that he'd taken in probing parliament nearly 3 weeks ago and
6:17 am
basically took the fight to the opposition accusing them of being the problem not him it was it was difficult watching i mean from one perspective it was you know compelling drama and compulsive viewing but from another perspective it was deeply a deeply disturbing spectacle. and so will have been as you say some ticking me ugly scenes in parliament of the kind of language that's been used at tell us more about about that by mention of the story. well i mean a lot lawrence i think touched upon it very 'd well his in his report there that the fact that the prime minister is unwilling to back take a step backwards at all in fact he said explicitly that as far as he's concerned the supreme court was simply wrong so there's no apology there there's no change of content no change of strategy and as the debate went on m.p.'s realized the way it
6:18 am
was going and they get they became very concerned at the way debate has developed evolved over this practice you know you know the chamber can be boisterous at times m.p.'s to be rude to each other but the way that this debate has been conducted really has caused serious concerns for long term damage and n.p. after m.p. said look we need to really start thinking about the outside impact of what is said within this chamber boris johnson dismissed the concerns of one m.p. who after the death the murder of jo cox in 2016 said that the way the language boris johnson was using was 'd could be suitable sites or something similar boris johnson dismissed that as humbug on his dismissal created fury you know that the 2 sides in the political across the political divide here in the u.k. are us each other's throats and it's as i said it's disturbing viewing and it's really a symptom of just how deep the divisions are the practices created thank you very much from westminster kolbein and. you all with the news ally from london much more
