president on trumped up the valley to kill the iran nuclear deal they're set to hit my od on monday targeting three major sections of iran's economy. i'm rebecca ritz's welcome to the program the first shock revelations are emerging from a database called football leaks they include a plan by europe's top clubs to radically change the face of football by forming an elite league of their own they also accuse the head of governing body face of failing to make good on promises to rid the organization of corruption we'll speak with one of the journalists behind the database in a moment but first a look at the role of germany's top club by munich in the allegations. behind the scenes byron munich has been plotting an attack on europe's soccer structure according to documents seen by germany's spiegel magazine byron's corporate
attorney began planning to leave the champions league back in two thousand and sixteen by and together with a handful of other elite clubs are aiming to set up their own super league breaking away from european soccer's governing body you a thug. we have sent a message to you if we don't need you i'm being frank about it and we need to do this otherwise we can't get what we want negotiations and the three sets. the secret plans to break with the way to end the champions league have already up the pressure top clubs have been given more money and more power in the season. but the football league's documents show other clubs have taken the lead in plans to split from. a binding declaration of intent is supposed to be signed this month the super league would be launched in the twenty twenty one twenty two season. byron munich is named as one of eleven founding members in the exclusive european super league
there would be no relegation other clubs such as dortmund could join their ranks by invitation only. these are the it's obvious that these plans these ideas exist and i think some of europe's biggest clubs are working to make it happen. where we draw the line is any suggestion that we could leave the bundesliga that's unimaginable for dortmund and for them. but not for byron the secret documents show the munich club has already examined whether it could leave the bundesliga but then aborted the idea responding to media questions byron said it had no knowledge of the reported declaration of intent and that the club doesn't comment on confidential talks. when joining me to talk about football lakes is christopher winter bok air reporter from the gem magazine dish beagle who broke the story is christopher what could this maven european football. well first of all
thanks for having me this is a very important moment in european football because it changes the polish truck sure fundamentally so far you if i has always organized these kind of competitions and now the most powerful and the richest clubs say like you said and portrayed in the little video before they don't need you a fight anymore and they were able to pressurize you into a reform where it would gain even more power and more money and we've seen this in the past couple years and national competitions that have that they have become more lopsided because of that money so it's very interesting for every football fan to see how this turns out right in the lakes also shine a light on johnny in fenty knowing the current fee for president and form a new way for president what have you uncovered about his past and current dealings well jenny infantino ran on a couple of promises when he wanted to become fee for president he said the
organization has to become more moral and there has to be an end to all the back room deals but we see that jennie infantino epitomizes this principle of secret negotiations as he has already done so as you if a secretary general when he hoped to present them and mentions the city to negotiate very favorable terms when they were in massive breach with u.f.o.'s financial family and gen infantino as president of. actually interfered with the code of ethics and made sure that fifo officials were harder to pursue for corruption. because if there is supposed to be some seventeen million documents in the database what can we expect what's still to come. well this is a team effort actually it's not only dish bigger but it's media rooms full from all over europe it's more than eighty journalists working on those millions of documents otherwise we wouldn't be able to break any stories at all because of
which way too much we started all first batch of first stories and now this weekend and in the next couple of weeks we look more at the power of the powers in the secret polls in european football possibly one or two doping cases and i can't go into much details but it should be interesting. when christoph vent about investigative journalist with a german magazine dish biegel thank you now to some of the other stories making news around the world turkish president wretch of time says the order to kill saudi journalist jamal khashoggi came from the very highest levels of the saudi government is comments came in an opinion piece in the washington post but early on said he did not believe king solomon had ordered the killing and declined to accuse the crown directly. pakistani islamists say they've struck a deal with the government to end days of protests over the freeing of a christian woman who was charged with blasphemy under the deal asia bibi must not
leave pakistan until a supreme court verdict is reviewed the mother of two spent eight years on death row before being found innocent by the court this week. poland's latest says his country will probably withdraw from the united nations migration agreement following a similar statement from austria hungary and the united states poland has also clashed with germany and the e.u. over plans to reform its justice system which berlin and brussels fear would downgrade the rule of law. and the united states is set to reinstate all of the sanctions against iran it removed under the twenty fifth a nuclear deal as midterm elections approach president donald trump tweeted sanctions are coming and is pushing for renewal of restrictions on shipping financial and energy sicked is the u.s. has been gradually re-imposing sanctions since it pulled out of the nuclear agreement in may a decision that was met with international criticism. here's the president talking
about his latest move. very serious sanctions are very big they'll be elevated from there but as you know sanctions are starting on iran. you know red if they get a very big if the country is not the same god as when i started. almost two years ago i read is a much different godfrey since i germinated that deal. and we're joined now by eric randolph deputy bureau chief of the eye of pain news agency in tehran eric what impact will the section sanctions likely have on ordinary people in iran. seeing some pretty significant economic downside in iraq as an instructor announced to support you know the deal back in may see as lost something like seventy percent of its value that's driven up the price of coal stocks hit businesses across the whole of society driving up prices ordinary people the government's been forced to see
results of handing out food baskets or i also see a lot of talent important to remember though it's not just sanctions causing those problems some bad decisions in the banking sector and a lot of long structural problems in the iranian economy oh also to blames sued be wrong to say that this is just u.s. pressure causing causing these problems so a couple of things they have it sanctions definitely hurting iran iranians there is is iran likely to sign another nuclear deal. sure right now that seems very unlikely trump has a mound like photo ops. whereas the iranians are much more into behind the scenes negotiations and a slightly softer the approach to foreign policy it's hard to see how those two sides can and can square each other the other fact is that iran simply would consider it too much of
a hit to its dignity to be pressured by the americans in such an aggressive manner intra pitch and the demands that the u.s. is making a pariah do amounts in their view to complete capitulation of the regime and it's hard to see how that will come to pass out he said that things are moving pretty far in sort of places directions in the middle east and the how some external factors will change the scenario oh so what about the domestically will the sanctions have a political fallout for the government there are a lot of people really putting their faith in improving relations with the u.s. . yes that's right when we talk about the impact of sanctions it's not just the economic data it's also the sense of hope that many brands had when this new good do it came into into force diagram a couple of years ago and now that hope has really been dashed the people thought this was finally the chance for iran to lose its pariah status to reengage with
that woke and that's really hit her brains perhaps hardest of all and that's how the political impact on president rouhani who had staked so much of his the git's mysie and his future. on that new deal in trying to rebuild those tight and he has been hit quite badly politically but for now the regime the system is rallying around him they don't want their instability. out a difficult time so for now his position is safe but it's in a couple of years when we have elections i think the reformist moderate movement is going to show the damage. harry grant often the and pay thank you. now it's just three days until voices in the united states go to the polls in closely watched me ten elections president trump isn't on the ballot spot for many the vote is a chance to deliver their verdict on his leadership with all the rhetoric telling people how to vote one of the issues that americans really care about and washington correspondent has this roundup.
blow up government spending you must. build the wall with the midterm elections approaching voters are under a barrage of political ads from both parties republicans got a big throat. just in case and made around a grim new illegals and take a moment will democrats then however i approve of town halls bad singing in this message are both trying to drill their respective messages into the political conscience of the american electorate it's getting less. real stuff. and very confusing what are actually the topics the political agendas which make voters interested and going to the polls coming november sixth according to our experts panel the political topics voters really care about it the midterms are well i think the biggest issue that's forefront right now is health care the top
issues in this election are the economy health care immigration trade and guns the economy health care trade and then local issues the economy it's booming issue repeat for the republicans trying to get voters to cast the ballots for them the message don't vote democrats you lose your job and pay more taxes or as the president puts it democrats produce republicans produce jobs however republicans have just now started something like a blitz on the economy perhaps a template of the campaign the economy and health care always issues that are elections health care. there that's a bread and butter issue for the democrats the republican failed to replace the affordable care act better known as obamacare health care a winner for democrats so what happened to immigration and guns trump is clearly trying to nationalize the immigration debate nationalize the gun debate. immigration a biggie for the president racism the least racist person but the latest campaign
ad posted on president trump's twitter account has sparked accusations of being blatantly racist politics anybody don't vote for that kind of your money for democrats trump is the gift that keeps on giving not only is the liberal democratic voter base fired up about going to the polls come november sixth. it's specifically white educated suburban women who voted for trump in two thousand and sixteen who now seem to be turning to the democrats i think i share the conventional wisdom that the democrats will regain the house of representatives that the republicans will perhaps gain the seat or two in the senate no matter what the outcome on november sixth will be the twenty twenty presidential campaign has already started since as they say here in washington every election is always a referendum on the sitting president. and just a reminder of that top story we're following for you germany's top football club is reportedly setting its sights on a league of its own investigative journalists from german magazine der spiegel have
uncovered documents showing the fine munich along with other top clubs is interested in forming an elite super league. you're watching news from berlin well coming at the top of the hour don't forget you can get all the latest news and information around the clock on our web site at state of money dot com thanks for joining me. in school in the jungle. the first cloning lesson in the doors granted moment arrives to move your ring in turn on her journey back to freedom. in our interactive documentary the road entering returns home from the long t.w. don't come to tanks.
