12:06 am
over with regard to the north east of syria of course is very worrying. we know the concerns that turkey has but again there's only a political solution and we are very afraid that any. military operation will again have disastrous humanitarian consequences so we are indeed concerned about what we have been reading about the situation and us president all trampas invited his turkish counterpart recha to the white house next month a white house correspondent kelly hellcats has more details. what we do know is there's been a real shift in tone with regard to the u.s. president his relationship with turkey i mean just 24 hours ago the u.s. president was promising on twitter to obliterate turkey's economy if it did anything that was not consistent with the u.s. wishes now the u.s. president on tuesday morning promising
12:07 am
a very strong relationship with turkey saying things that reminding perhaps u.s. voters particularly that turkey is an important trading partner that there is an important value to the nato relationship that the 2 share and that there is a partnership when it comes to the collaboration of the building of the f. $35.00 fighter jet that the u.s. of course is very fond of now in the midst of all of this the u.s. president is also saying that he will not in any way abandon the kurdish fighters that the u.s. has been fighting alongside to defeat eisel in recent years but i can still tell you that the shift in syria strategy out of the u.s. president that was announced late on sunday evening is not sitting well with even members of his own republican party one of the latest senator marco rubio who has called the president's stance morally repugnant and a stain on the nation's reputation even as the president touts the benefits of the relationship with turkey in the united states there is considerable concern about
12:08 am
turkey's actions into northern into the northeast region of syria and how that could affect the can the kurdish people particularly the kurdish fighters that have been so loyal to the united states the white house as blocks of plant appearance in front of u.s. congress by a diplomat's the sense of the impeachment inquiry into donald trump who is for the u.s. ambassador to the. say the trumpet ministration ordered him not to appear in front of what is the president is calling a kangaroo court mike hanna has more. ambassador sunderland had flown back from brussels and was eager to appear agreement for the deposition had been reached at the state department but then at half past midnight a voicemail was left on someone's lawyers phone saying the trumpet ministration would not allow him to give evidence the failure to produce this witness. the failure to produce these documents. we consider yet additional strong
12:09 am
evidence of structure and of the constitutional functions of congress a co-equal branch of government republican committee members all back to the white house move what we see in this impeachment is a kangaroo court and chairman shift is acting like a malicious captain kangaroo and there's no pressure whatsoever coincidentally or not a phrase very similar to that used to by the president an hour earlier unfortunately he would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court treated president trump where republicans rights have been taken away and true facts are not allowed out for the public to see republican members of the house committees insist democrats have been selective in what evidence to make public particularly of that provided last week by u.s. representative to ukraine could focus which made clear u.s.
12:10 am
diplomats had been discussing the preconditions for a meeting between president trump and his ukraine counterpart this has to be a fair process and when you have a press release being drafted by our democrat colleagues cheery picking text messages when the full text of ambassador bowker's testimony last week would have exonerated this president let's release it ambassador sunderland was mentioned repeatedly in the testimony made public his texts and emails indicating he was in direct communication with the white house throughout the discussions about ukraine his evidence is regarded this critical in terms of understanding the motive behind the trumpet ministrations engagement with the president of ukraine and the house committees are insistent he must testify a formal subpoena has now been issued calling on ambassador sunderland to appear with all these documents mike hanna just. washington. the u.s.
12:11 am
senate intelligence committee has found russia was behind a social media disinform ation campaign designed to influence the 2016 presidential election the committee report outlines how social media platforms were used to sow division and spread fake news in an effort to get donald trump elected u.s. intelligence chiefs traced the accounts to the internet research agency a russian organization widely believed to be directed by the kremlin with echo's findings in the miller report which led to the indictment of 12 russian nationals linked to the ira al jazeera source in jordan joins us live now from washington d.c. said rowles did we learn anything new in this report. well i think there was a lot of information that was already out in the media that many people knew about this disinform ation campaign that was waged during the 2016 election and this report from the intelligence committee on the senate side did confirm that the
12:12 am
efforts of the internet research agency didn't start as early as 2014 although it did note that descent from ation efforts coming from moscow date back to the early 1960 s. and all sorts of incidents had been tested or attempted to have been influenced during those decades one thing that was that really did stand out was that this was not just an effort to undermine the candidacy of the democratic presidential candidate hillary clinton it was also aimed at several republican republicans excuse me who were also running for the republican nomination against donald trump they include the senators ted cruz and marco rubio as well as trying to have basically promote any information that could somehow so discord between various parts of the u.s.
12:13 am
population it did note that an ordained amount of misinformation was aimed at african-americans in an effort to was stoke racial tensions in this country now what this report from the senate intelligence committee is calling for is a more formalized cooperation between the u.s. government between tech companies that produce social media and the general public to one try to figure out when information that is bad information is being disseminated to try to figure out how to prevent that dissemination from really taking off like wildfire and 3 and this might be the hardest thing to a chief felicity trying to. ultimately teach us citizens who are using social media that they need to be much more sophisticated in what they're reading that they need to be much more skeptical about what they're reading and to think twice before they retreat or share or like the information because the committee has found that as
12:14 am
much as people engage with the material the much more likely it is that bad information is going to be transmitted from one place to another and as the report noted in one point felicity the 1st impression is the one that often sticks absolutely. they were the nicest in washington thank you or i still has on this news hour from london as the brics it deadline of a closer british prime minister boris johnson's criticised for playing stupid blame games with the european union. the promise of jobs to stop widespread protests now iraqis demanding the government or follows through with its plan. is iran prepares to allow female fans into focus stadiums we sit down with one of the women helping drive change in her country.
12:15 am
now the president of the european council has accused the u.k. prime minister of engaging in quote stupid to blame games as the bracks it deadline edges closer this is british media say the german chancellor has made it clear to forest johnson that a break sit deal is overwhelmingly unlikely reports. by the time boris johnson's cabinets arrive for the morning meeting westminster was awash with the news that downing street had decided to play hardball and with the european union. probably they haven't even been briefed on the suggestion of the u.k. looked like readying itself to collapse the talks on a compromise deal but that does appear to be the suggestion faced with the delaying of disruptive and annoying tactics of the opposition we say on behalf of the 17400000 enough enough enough we need to leave. downing street then brief that the german chancellor had demanded that the economy of northern ireland stay in the
12:16 am
news although it's putting the last nail in the coffin but the e.u. insisted the talks were not yet dead technical talks are continuing to date so i don't see how talks could have actually been broken down if they are happening today and in the days to continue there is no denying the loss of faith though the president of the european council donald tusk tweeted this boris johnson what's at stake is not winning some stupid blame game at stake is the future of europe and the u.k. as well as the security and interests of our people you don't want to deal you don't want an extension you don't want to revoke. which is latin for where are you going. with parliament suspended from wednesday opposition parties now assume johnson will call an election next week after accepting a breakfast extension as demanded by parliament and then campaigning to leave the e.u. with no deal by getting them to then offer the extension perhaps on the 17th of october
12:17 am
or the 18th of october when european council meet he would then be able to say to parliament and to jeremy corbyn in particular i've got beat stench and i want my general election now and i think in those circumstances jeremy corps will be highly likely to say yes the blame game between london and brussels mirrors the entire brics a debate there's precious little left except bad blood certainly the european union never really thought that boris johnson administration was actually interested in the deal because his proposed compromise over what happens in northern ireland is so complicated and convoluted the e.u. thinks it was basically set up to fail it is assume though that if boris johnson asks them for an extension to breakfasts they will grant states if only as a last chance hope that a different government might be elected in a national election which could save the u.k. and the e.u. from a no deal bricks it barnsley al-jazeera in london. iraq's government is under pressure
