5:00 am
it will take 10 to a 1000 years for this to disintegrate and that's what's choking this city. this is al jazeera. santa maria and this is the news out from al-jazeera. was there a quid pro quo as i testified previously with regard to the requested white house call and the white house meeting the answer is yes that's the u.s. ambassador to the e.u. testifying donald trump wanted ukraine's president to investigate his political rival in exchange for military aid. not only did we win today it's all over
5:01 am
but trump remains defiant insisting he wanted nothing from ukraine and that the inquiry should and. also students is still under siege at a hong kong university as the u.s. congress approves a bill demanding china respect human rights and a new symbol emerges to represent the diverse groups of people behind the protests in chile. so more dramatic testimony has been delivered on the 4th day of the public. pietschmann inquiry into u.s. president don't trump and just the past few hours we've heard from the deputy assistant secretary of defense laura cooper also david hale the under secretary secretary for political affairs but when asked what they knew about u.s. military aid being withheld from ukraine now in her testimony cooper mentioned that ukrainian officials are asked about the stalled a as early as july 25th contradicting president trump's defense that they had no
5:02 am
idea anything was on hold my staff showed me 2 unclassified emails that they received from the state department one was received on july 25th at 2 31 pm that e-mail said that the ukrainian embassy and house foreign affairs committee are asking about security assistance the 2nd email was received on july 25th at 4 25 pm that e-mail said that the hill knows about the f m f situation to an extent and so does the ukrainian embassy and then in the earliest session the us ambassador to the e.u. gordon sandland gave what was the most anticipated testimony so far he said while trying never told him directly about a reciprocal agreement or quid pro quo as they say for military aid it was made very clear to everyone involved that there was a pressure campaign against ukraine was there
5:03 am
a quid pro quo as i testified previously with regard to the requested white house call and the white house meeting the answer is yes mr giuliani conveyed to secretary perry ambassador volker and others that president trump wanted a public statement from president selenski committing to investigations of brewery sma and the 2016 election. of course this inquiry is assessing whether donald trump withheld military aid to ukraine in order to pressure the country into investigating his rival joe biden following the latest testimonies trump himself said the impeachment inquiry should just and not only do we win today it's over and some of the family friends of which there is a deal mike said this thing is over nancy pelosi is a competent she's got nothing done in congress and now with their big star witnesses and it's going to be their star witness that just so you know i don't know him very well he's the guy that got put there he wasn't even on my side he
5:04 am
came over to be i didn't even know that he came up to me after i defeated other people i defeated them all. let's pull of together with alan fischer now has been following developments in washington alan it's not over is it in fact today is possibly pushed the house closer to the idea of impeachment actual articles of impeachment than ever before. well i don't know what media donald trump is looking at saying it's over i can't see anyone saying that i've also been looking at fox news and some of their commentators are saying this was a very damaging day for donald trump no if you've been at what cold day or you can't sit next the television or the radio we've been watching these impeachment hearings so you don't have to let me tell you the big reveal is of course court and saundra and saying look there was a quid pro quo or you remember this all started because an anonymous whistleblower
5:05 am
hared the call on july 25th or let me correct that got reports from people who were on the call on july 25th and said there was something wrong about this so lodged a complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community that then sparked these inquiries and that led to the impeachment hearings were seeing no essentially the whistleblower said he was told or she was told there was a quid pro quo always denied by the republicans there was no quid pro quo or donald trump or said that many times here is gordon sunderland one of the main conduit between the white house and the ukrainian saying yes there was a quid pro quo donald trump saying i hardly know the man he delivered $1000000.00 to the inauguration campaign he would regularly in contact with donald trump according to his testimony he said that senior figures in the administration including the vice president the secretary of state the energy secretary the chief of staff they all knew that there was
5:06 am
a quid pro quo that they were putting pressure on the ukrainians to deliver an investigation into joe biden a political rival no interestingly enough in the last couple of hours we've heard from the vice president's office and we've heard from the secretary of state's office they say that gordon's on dylan's testimony was wrong he gave evidence under or thought means if he is lying he could be in big trouble and they just put out statements to the mean. saying that they got this thing wrong this was a big day it was an important day it could possibly be had historic day you're seeing the republicans moving closer and closer to articles of impeachment the republicans for their part they keep saying nothing to see here move along i mentioned alan that this is the 4th day of the public hearings at least what is still to come this way next great beyond. well you know i've lost my list of people who are coming up in the next couple of days but what we will see is the
5:07 am
democrats continuing to build a case putting testimony after testimony that backs up a lot of what they've been saying this isn't just a random less that they have built this in the very methodical way so that it will get the initial statements and then you will find out what gordon sunderland's said and that was important and we saw that in the last couple of hours just as you highlighted from the woman who was at the defense department whose name escapes me for the moment laura. could park who said exactly laura cooper who said that. look we've we're told by the ukrainians they were concerned about not getting this aid on july 25th an important date for a number of reasons 1st of all because that is a month before the white house says that the ukrainians found out about it so nor they knew that it was being held up and july 25th why is that date important come on you know the answer that is the day that donald trump held this conversation
5:08 am
with president selenski and released the transcript that transcript where he says although he never said the word would like a quid pro quo he says and perhaps you could do us a favor so there are going to see more and more of this just building up a case that moves towards articles of impeachment and that is likely to happen soon but as we've said before come on we've said in the last hour america united states $2900.00 politics here is very tribal the democrats think they are building a very solid case towards impeachment the democrats the republicans don't think they're doing anything that brings donald trump course to impeachment and so that's where the 2 sites sit and although the house might go ahead with impeachment it's still unlikely inconceivable says mitch mcconnell the leader of the publicans in the senate that they'll get 67 votes to impeach don. trump and remove him from office it's been a big day on capitol hill our thanks to alan fish if it's taking us through it so
5:09 am
let's step back a little more with a quick look at how this impeachment process actually works it begins in the house of representatives it debates it votes on whether to bring as alan was talking about the articles of impeachment the charges against the president if that is successful then a trial of sorts presided by the chief justice of the u.s. supreme court happens in the senate a 2 thirds majority would be needed in that 100 member senate to convict and thus remove the president and historically we'd have to say impeachment are rare out of 35 attempts only 2 presidents have actually been impeached. is one of them richard nixon bill clinton the of the other one neither have been removed from office. richard nixon he of course resigned when the proceedings were under way from one alan fischer to allan lichtman now in washington d.c. a professor of history at the american university mailed friend who was here 3 years ago of course for our election night coverage allan when donald trump was was
5:10 am
elected and you said if it wasn't back then you said not long after that that allan donald trump will not only be elected but he will be impeached you would be feeling fairly confident about that now. it is endeavor to bull that donald trump will be impeached look the republicans are wrong the democrats have not been pushing for the impeachment of donald trump ever since he was elected quite the opposite the leadership of the democratic party particularly speaker nancy pelosi has said we're not moving to impeachment but then donald trump brought it down upon himself gratuitously by opening up this entire ukrainian scandal he forced the hand of a very reluctant democratic leadership but they will not have gone this far and the evidence is so strong that an impeachment is guaranteed as you say we can talk
5:11 am
about the senate as well we'll get to that in a moment i 1st just want to talk about the hearings that we were watching today and that we've seen these 4 days of public hearings do you get the feeling sometimes that the democrats and republicans are just watching different things or just hearing different things i know it is each of their jobs overseas to push their own party line but the interpretations are complete other ends of the spectrum. they really are and in heard republicans say we don't care what the evidence is we are going to stand by the president no matter what and that's what you've seen play out look at the devon noone is the lead republican on the committee the ranking member if you watch his opening and closing statements he almost never talks about the evidence he simply goes through these rants denouncing the democrats and bringing up these utterly debunked conspiracy theories that it was really the
5:12 am
ukrainians not the russians who intervened in the 2016 election i think today's hearing though was very important because the blew away substantively 3 of the republicans most important defenses number one they said there was nothing linking this to donald trump well gordon sunland who has direct access to donald trump directly linked it to donald trump directly through a directive from donald trump through donald trump's personal attorney rudy giuliani who donald trump also said presidents dyleski should contact after he asked him for these politically connected investigations secondly gordon seidlin blew away the defense that there was no this for that he said absolutely rudy giuliani told him that there was a quid pro quo that they would not get. the critically needed meeting with donald
5:13 am
trump in the oval office unless they announced these investigations thirdly we've heard from laura cooper which blew away the republicans defense that oh the ukrainians didn't even know about this until maybe late august as your reporter indicated they were expressing concerns on the very day that trump out his conversation would selenski allen as you point out the senate is where it all really. happens provided we get to page meant the likelihood of a republican lead we will actually. removing the president from office is unlikely so if that is the case what will the impeachment have done with it and given donald trump a bloody nose so to speak in a reelection year absolutely if you look at the past history 2 presidents impeached richard nixon resigned to avoid impeachment in every case their party lost the next presidential election with the cloud of scandal hanging over
5:14 am
them now remember a senate trial will get much more public attention then these hearings it's very dramatic we've only had 2 of them in the history of the country and at the senate trial the house can appoint prosecutors who can bring forth witnesses and documents make opening and closing statements cross-examine the president's witnesses and the president will have to mount a real defense not just the bluster we've seen from him and not just rudy giuliani style spend no matter what happens in the senate vote it's going to be a very bruising experience for donald trump right in the middle of the election year allan lichtman always a pleasure thank you for joining us. here's what else is coming up for you on this news hour a family affair because newly elected president names his brother as the prime
5:15 am
minister putting a firm grip on power also pressure mounts on colombia's government as the country braces for its biggest national strike in years and in sports as a marine you're settles into his new job his 1st training session as the manager of talking. to other news a magnitude 6 point one earthquake has struck in thailand it happened near the district of one in the north just east of chiang mai in fact so far. no reports of damage or casualties. to hong kong about $100.00 protesters are still holed up in the besieged polytechnic university the remnants of the hundreds who took over the campus for several days international condemnation is now growing over the treatment of the protesters centers in the u.s. of a even approved a bill to support human rights in hong kong china says it's meddling in the summer
5:16 am
and a u.s. diplomat in beijing let's check in with sarah clarke outside that university in hi sara just bring us up to date with what you know of how many protesters are left and when and if they're going to go. we've got about 100 protesters still left inside there refusing to leave this campus impellor in the polytechnic university and we've had some. some voluntarily surrendered and we've had a 1000 leave over the last few days but this hard core group remains barricaded up inside we do know from some of those protests is that the hungry they've also indicated this we saw on monday when. this particular camp itself i don't buy tear gas and rubber bullets by the place now since then the police and the government have negotiated a deal with your group of the principals teachers and headmasters who said can we get can be at school at some of these protests is that if we do you would you
5:17 am
please let me exit and i asked for that camp said still inside round this area it's all still congested with a lot of traffic congestion around hong kong this morning and we still have a cross have a town which is right behind me it's been closed since wednesday after those protesters lit some of the top it's certainly here in hong kong the last of the 100 practices of behind me but we have brought down this particular area in a very busy part of hong kong so i mentioned the same passing just before the u.s. house of representatives passing this hong kong human rights and democracy act and it's got to go to the president yet for approval what would the reaction to that be in her own course. yes it passed unanimously yesterday in the senate in the u.s. and today obviously the house of reps has passed it now it has 10 days to go to president donald trump well no doubt house is something outside this off simply because it's gone through both houses now now this put this in particular this bill
5:18 am
the government here has rejected it angrily they've said that told the u.s. not to interfere in the internal matters or internal affairs in hong kong china has had a similar response to what this particular bill does that requires a state department in the u.s. to certify that that hong kong is protecting respecting the human rights of people here in hong kong as well they've also looked at the bill requests also allows hong kong to qualify for a special u.s. try to sanction so if the u.s. believes that the hong kong and china are not respecting you that protecting the one country 2 systems policy i can interact so i do as i mentioned trump has now 10 days to pass it but the hong kong government once again and china has rejected it angrily thank you sarah clarke for the update from hong kong at least 11 people have been killed after an strikes and missiles targeted parts of syria's rebel controlled italy province activists are blaming the syrian government iranian militias for a missile that targeted an internally displaced persons camp near the turkish
5:19 am
border syrian regime air strikes also targeted the city of marjah in southern italy israel's opposition leader benny gantz has been unable to form a coalition government which means the country may be going to the polls again israel's political system has been paralyzed for months after 2 inconclusive elections one in april 1 in september the incumbent prime minister benjamin netanyahu did not receive any overall majority so they tried to get the support of our door lieberman's party he refused to support either candidate and urged the 2 to work together to form a unity government sorry force that explains all of that now from west jerusalem. well for hours before the expiration of the deadline for benny gantz to make a coalition government he came to the microphones to admit what had been coming increasingly clear throughout the course of the day that he had failed but he put the blame for that squarely at the feet of the prime minister benjamin netanyahu saying he had been fortifying himself inside a transitional government against the will of the israeli people just to try to
5:20 am
avoid prosecution in impending corruption cases and he used a particularly personal language in a very strong attack against netanyahu saying that no party leader was above the nation no person had the right to deny the people their vote no prime minister on leader could say that my interests are more important than yours and he said that netanyahu had been putting poison into the israeli political process through hatred and incitement and he said that israel now faced its greatest democratic test in its history as now the 21 day period begins where any member of the israeli parliament the knesset could theoretically try to form a coalition government if they have enough support otherwise israel is off to a 3rd round of elections within less than a year because our would so usually school. netanyahu needs to remember israel still has a democracy even if it doesn't appeal to him and he should have come to terms with
5:21 am
the fact that the outcome of the elections required him to negotiate directly with no blocks or barriers well earlier the right wing politician of a door lieberman has been seen as the kingmaker in this process so that he hadn't been able to convince either netanyahu or gantz to compromise enough to form a joint unity government the only kind of government that he said he would support with his crucial seats in the israeli parliament so what comes next for the only way really that a 3rd election could be avoided is if the threat of that election which is so unpopular with the electorate is enough in itself to try to pressure key players to compromise more or if when netanyahu and we do think it is when they're finally gets charged by the attorney general in the coming days in his 3 corruption cases whether that changes the calculus within his own party enough to try to splinter support away from him there's been no sign of that in the run up to those charges coming in the support has so far been rock solid behind him and so for now this
5:22 am
grinding political crisis goes on with no sign of an end perhaps it will only end and maybe not even then if the 3rd round of elections happens in the early part of next year iran's president hassan rouhani is blaming the united states israel and its other regional enemies for the mass protests in his country in the past few days the capital tehran is now largely peaceful following demonstrations which began on friday when the government hiked petrol prices. iran is also disputing amnesty international's figure of more than 100 people dead in the protests calling that number speculative ronnie's the protests were a security issue not a popular movement. variables were organized and armed and they were precisely following a scheme plotted by the backward state in our region as well as the zionists and the americans i consider this another big victory for the iranian nation after supremely devastated our people have come out of it totally is a different times in the face of our enemies plots and this time as well in my ears
