democrats and the media. meeting he held with the russian lawyer in response the full e-mail exchange. relating to this very meeting now one of the e-mails quote very high level sensitive information supposedly incriminated presidential candidate hillary clinton and might be of use to trump. information was. some official documents originating allegedly from some prosecutor of russia. certainly raised a few eyebrows in the media because well there is no such official position in the country of not being a monarchy and there are other confusing aspects of the story as well as. now
reports. the story is like a rorschach test meaning that everyone sees a different picture and most of the media sees a picture of collusion and treason. think he was about to get help from a russian lawyer with ties to the kremlin this is looking more and more like treason and intent to collude with the russian government all these strange behavior from the president it's all explains now that's not how trump jr sees it he says that nothing of substance was discussed at the meeting which he described as a name nonsense it was such a nothing. there was nothing to tell. no i wouldn't even remembered it until you start scouring through the stuff it was literally just a wasted twenty minutes which was a shame whatever the content was the characters involved with the meeting are certainly worthy of a good moving. everywhere
you go. i'm really tired. we all know her name now and it's highly efficient it's guy at natalia vessel needs sky the new tal you have vessel night sky a. good story but why does everyone want to link this russian lawyer to the kremlin she works in adoption law and does not work with the russian government and why would the russian prosecutor choose all of these people to deliver sensitive
information to the trunk camp donald trump jr confirms that this meeting was a big nothing burger he says she did not have any damaging information on clinton but instead that she wanted to discuss adoption law in the magnitsky act she confirms this. but i never knew who else would be attending the meeting so all i need is to donald trump jr was willing to meet with me do you have connections to grow chicago. know furthermore if this meeting between the trump team in the russian lawyers was about handling damaging. from ation on clinton where is this bombshell we have yet to see any bombshell from the trump team about their opponent so after months and months of proof related to russia and being anticipated we finally have a story that's rather complicated in fact it's so complicated that you can see whatever you want the confirmation bias of the reader can lead the mind's eye to
read whatever they want into the story if you're determined to see trump works for the russians you can see it even though the logical links just don't add up cable mopp and r.t. new york. was among those junior publishers e-mails in the name of transparency to do it for him anonymously via wiki leaks the two hours later trump jr published them himself a political and legal analyst line all told us that there's no substance in the story only the buzzword russia making it a point of discussion for the media. whenever you hear about this trump meeting always ask the question and. because that's what you have to do and that i don't trust junior met with this. and look what we're doing we're talking about what could have been what should have been but we're playing what if in any light from any angle there is nothing that is even
remotely almost against the law somebody said treason this there is nothing here but let me tell you what is the saddest part we have been told russia russia russia russia to such an extent that maybe by virtue of this repetition there's been some kind of a cerebral connection made where people impute to guilt whenever that word is met and i'm not kidding you it's almost like a brainwashing there is absolutely nothing to this story no matter how you look at it from anybody's point of view there is nothing there i think i've made that very clear i think. people are starting to return to the iraqi city of mosul after the government declared victory over islamic state in the area on monday however one of the most difficult tasks
according to human rights watch the coalition used a number of weapons that are in accurate and could be quote unlawfully indiscriminate if used in heavily populated areas among them are unguarded all tillery rockets and mortars an icky air and reports. the liberation of mosul from islamic state has topped the news cycle over the past few days has been full of praise for the victorious iraqi and coalition forces and pictures of celebration victory over isis in mosul. celebrations in the streets of mosul and battle the iraqi city of mosul is now free the biggest city in isis the so-called islamic state is in the hands of a rocky troops as against the backdrop of jubilation humanitarian groups crying foul over the plight of locals honesty international issued a fifty page report detailing the extent of civilian suffering calling out both iraq and the u.s. led coalition forces for repeated violations of international humanitarian law
which it says could amount to war crimes honesty says there was a reliance on imprecise weapons and ignorance to the growing civilian death toll and a failure to adjust tactics to the challenges created by ice still of course you'd never expect much respect for civilian life from the terrorists known for using innocent people as human shields but it seems that those fighting i still somehow turned a blind eye to what they call collateral damage we have already shifted from attrition probably shove them from one position to another in iraq syria to annihilation tactics to billion casualties or affair to life in this sort of situation besides any additional needless deaths can just be blamed on the ruthless enemy anyway according to the un the battle for mosul is left almost nine hundred
thousand people displaced more than eight thousand civilians dead or wounded and one hundred thousand children at risk sure it's heartbreaking now but if only which heard about it all sooner well the neighboring streets. all but destroyed the street across rubble the street over there it's the same story wherever you look at play on your little boo little. shop as well had your garbage comment but i'm tired mother. we were sitting at my uncle's house how wrote her mother a mom who's wife went back home because howard was sick and the house was shelled by american planes i tried but i couldn't save howard from the shelling and the is strikes and i still go farming it's us and there was no life was when it comes to how the battle for mosul will be remembered it seems these pictures of celebration at the liberation will live on in the media where the civilian suffering will be sufferance in silence. the u.s.
led coalition has reacted to amnesty international's report calling it irresponsible a spokesman added that war is not pleasant and that those who claim otherwise put the lives of civilians and soldiers at risk. well another liberation campaign is under way right now that of the now the us backed rebels are preparing to seize iceland's syrian stronghold of raka the u.n. says between thirty to fifty thousand people are trapped in that city we understand almost two hundred thousand have already been displaced here are some of their stories. i assure you that actually made out of metal but that is that as well and that is nesmith has met but you have on your little niche that actually you anybody can didn't have a taste of what else has me and they don't let as you look tired of all that and then she would move on and i did not. climb above them. but i nod. and you know i don't know how to be of course you haven't come to us i mean i
. don't know. much of. that if you haven't met any. one as a member of us lay of the verb do i shouldn't as a mr haven't been up to one as a million i do think there are rock oh it was also very windy i don't know if you or whether the u.s. led coalition will look at the example of most war you know i think that the u.s. coalition needs to everything possible to make sure that its target selection is merely discriminator and that it focuses to the extent possible islamic state voters but for the most was any indication rocco is going to go love. russia says the hearing to the agreements reached by presidents putin and trump during the g twenty summit last week the u.s. is apparently losing enthusiasm over them the most recent example. relates to the
process of monitoring the ceasefire agreed in syria which had been discussed by the two leaders. the u.s. and russia have committed to monitoring the suit and ensuring humanitarian access to the areas initially security in these areas will be ensured by russian military police and close cooperation with the u.s. and jordan who those monitors will be i don't know at this point i know we have folks in the region i know that our special envoy to syria is actively engaged in these conversations so i anticipate we'll get that information and then your future the details of the agreed cease fire in syria which came into force last sunday just one of the things the u.s. government appears to be playing down the reports from washington. the highly anticipated biological meeting between donald trump and lot of here putin at the g. twenty summit and with high hopes that the two countries could finally leave all the bad blood behind and see a new stage in relations after the two presidents met in hamburg tillerson came out
saying that they had great chemistry they discussed cyber security and the cease fire in syria and were really ready to move forward putin and did discuss that joint cyber security in it but trump has since backtracked on that with a post on twitter after the idea was widely attacked here in washington about that cease fire in syria the most important achievement reached by the u.s. and russia in conjunction with jordan moscow has already outlined what role in the suspension of hostilities they will play but america has yet to be clarified and recent reports show that the pentagon was left completely out of the process we reached out to the pentagon to see if they could shed some light on the plan and they in turn said that the state department was the head agency and referred us to them but they also have yet to come up with a solid strategy in terms of who is doing what when where or how some of those details are still being worked out so no real answer there either and the spokeswoman also had a rather strange reaction to russia's foreign minister having made comments about
working on a cease fire monitoring station in jordan is there any clarity so far on the monitoring of the syrian cease fire. yesterday that it was going to be done with the united states and jordan from the center and give any more details on that mr lacker likes to talk a lot and get out ahead i think of some of the negotiations that are underway that is all still being worked out so we're seeing again one step forward two steps back on what's becoming the usual u.s. approach to working with russia some of america's partners in europe i've also pointed out the inconsistency of america's russia policy german government official go to lashed out at the u.s. saying its policy is an indecisive back and forth with no clear direction former u.s. diplomat jim just trust told us what's behind the mixed signals coming from washington . if the russians believe the americans are talking with two voices that's because we are clearly i think president trump is very sincere in trying to work out some
kind of a broader arrangement with moscow and then he faces tremendous opposition here in washington from people who didn't want this meeting to take place at all or wanted to be at best a pro-forma handshake unpleasantries kind of thing not to affect any substance we have a lot of people here in the if you will in the deep state who don't want any cooperation with russia at all on anything particularly on syria and there is a huge potential that somebody may try to sabotage it but i have i'm still rather optimistic thank you joining us i thought for the program here on the many more stories still coming your way including that of the young gary an american billionaire george soros accused by some of meddling in government affairs all around the world well he's upset in hungary and now israel that story just a market. people with stories to tell. those who desire to.
stand. still so. here's. a little since. they're here to speak are you there to hear. in case you're new to the game this is how it works in our economy is built around core. perforations washington the washington post media the media. voters used to run this country business because. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before.
good to have you with us today the hunt carrying government has launched a countrywide anti migrant poster campaign depicting george soros gary an american billionaire owner is being used by the government as. cold and hungry to allow more refugees into the country where migrant sentiments are strong in school was dismissed by president audubon's government. the campaign is rym in this interview or darkest hour as. these billboards of
memories but also saw hatred and fear. although israel's ambassador to hungary initially criticized the campaign television quickly released a clarification condemning the actions of george soros both in a hungary and in israel and we discuss the situations in both countries with an israeli activist. saurus is very hostile towards israel and here was the it kind of situation in hungary because was sorest did he supported all kinds of what we call orange revolutions which on the surface were very peaceful mother there of the day we saw these blood spilled in the ukraine blood spilled in beliefs in many other places where soros put his fingers as you know now the reason compan in the united states that russia meddle in the us elections i don't assemble they're talking about the united states government invested money and in
undermining israeli prime minister during the campaign they do it openly and they interfere in the mantle and then the queues others of doing i mean this is kind of the property which needs to be solved and we agree with the government of when they want to say stop stop. george soros it's alleged meddling is also becoming a concern in america back in march this year several republican senators attempted to launch a probe into where taxpayers' money ends up after being stoned to sources and. however the initiative was rejected despite a collective letter sent to the secretary of state rex tillerson now hungary is not the only european country to openly denounce the activities of george soros the polish parliament has a legibly has alleged that soros has violated the polish constitution while a former macedonian leader said soros using his n.g.o.s around the world has been
directly meddling across the planet we spoke to an international affairs commentator who supports these views. complaints about george entirely justified because we see in his behavior somebody who is has got a will to power and if he doesn't like the results of a democratic election he will do his best to topple that democratic government so for example in the case of hungary clearly pursuing a nationally or inside policy and that government knows that it will be targeted sooner or later by soros for daring to pursue a national policy rather than a sort of policy in essence what george soros is about is the complete opposite if this is a democracy he has money which he uses to buy power and influence by creating organizations which he tells what to do and they tell the world what to do and what to think he talks about transparency but everything he does is veiled in secrecy he talks about democracy but he seeks to overthrow democratically elected governments
just because he doesn't like them this is a kind of megalomania on a james bond villain scale and it really should be stopped. a legal controversy is brewing in the united states it's after new hampshire's attorney general launched an investigation into a case where an immigrant was cleared of six counts of domestic violence by a local court augustine bahati a thirty three year old refugee from the congo was arrested in august last year after he allegedly assaulted a pregnant woman several times over he was released the following month after his lawyer raised doubts on whether bahati was legally fit to stand trial in march this year the suspect was cleared of all charges after a local prosecutor found bahati to be quote culturally incompetent we discuss the case and its ramifications with two guests. people are afraid now in america to say you're in america welcome to america we have certain values we have certain rules
in place if you say that you might be xenophobic right so the city prosecutor didn't want to be seen as enough and because of that he decided to let somebody off on the cultural relativism defense so this is the end result of political correctness and cultural marxism and the social justice warrior ism run amok mexicans and muslims and foreigners and immigrants to this country. every day this spate of hate crimes that have did this country. sort of think that some of the environment of an bracing immigrants is ridiculous when hate crimes are on the rise and just for being mexican you can be terror a lot of these hate crimes do end up being hoaxes the flip side is there's just a lot of hate in the world and there's a lot of hate and humanity if i walk down the street in a certain neighborhoods in new york as a white person i would face racism from other cultures it doesn't sound like you feel safe to visit new york we feel bad for. sort of it but mike you put forth
a very grim pessimistic view of humanity is though somehow hate were a natural thing honor killings cannot come to america domestic battery cannot be normalized abusing women and genital mutilation of children cannot be allowed individual responsibility sure but as a culture we have to send a message and we can't be afraid to say that this is america this is the west and we don't do things the way a lot of other people do in the rest of the world a lot of so many people come to america it's not because america is the greatest place in the world is because people have been diffused and they've been robbed of their opportunities whether it's in the dominican republic go in brazil or in the middle east because of us foreign policy and u.s. interventionism we do have a mass we should be trying to help these other countries creating save zones in other countries but if you're going to come to america there cannot be a cultural defense. ok it's ok to hit my wife. coming up next the international
cross-talk debating the outcomes of the g twenty summit last week. seemed wrong. just don't hold. me. to shape out just to become educated and engaged equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart if we choose to look for common ground. still exist. rico's treated as one. of. the islanders controlled by the u.s.
government and some puerto ricans crave independence. either. still many do wish to join the u.s. hundreds more leave every day. with the country at a crossroads for anger of the island is on the rise. of observed events of the past few years and asked myself several times what's going on in my native germany. millions of refugees. u.s. intelligence agencies indiscriminately listening in on german citizens and the government. and once again. heading east.
from various political parties and various independent experts and journalists. understand just how independent germany really is when it comes to decision making . whether it acts on its own national interests. someone else's will. hello and welcome to cross talk we're all paying for. considered i'm peter will of the trump putin handshake at the g. twenty is now part of history well their meeting appeared to go well both presidents said so moving forward on this bilateral relationship is problematic at best are the u.s. and russia destined to be enemies.
cross talking russia u.s. relations i'm joined by my guest peter because they can washington is a professor of history and director at american university as well as co-author with all of our stone the untold history of the united states in pittsburgh we have dan koblick he is an adjunct professor of law at university of pittsburgh as well as author of the plot to scapegoat russia and here in moscow we crossed alexander me curious he is a writer on legal affairs as well as editor in chief of the duran dot com all right gentlemen crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate alexander before i want to go to you first ok we can talk about russia gate we can we can talk about collusion you know i want to stay away from what i essentially believe is a fake story here but one thing that is never mentioned in the mainstream media that i'm aware of anyway is is what does russia want in its relationship with the
united states we always are told what the u.s. demands of everyone else but what did the russians want in this bilateral relationship but stan said basically zero go ahead alexander well this is exactly correct because of course the united states or shall we say the people who seem to be in control of the united states or at least its media and its political system never seem to be very interested in looking at things from the russians saw it and if they did and let me say something that russia is actually a very easy country to find out what the russians want and what they think they would be surprised i think because they would find that the russians actually don't want very much from the. united states what they want is to be generally left alone to sort out their own affairs which they are doing and the russians are doing and they also want to work with the united states on certain issues.
