referendum material currently more than seven hundred members are under investigation over their support for the vote and most recently madrid's and plans to take control of catalan his budget in order to ensure many won't be spent on referendum purposes now let's take a closer look at what spain would lose if catalonia becomes independent while the region makes up only about six percent of spain's territory with sixteen percent of the population living there it accounts for one fifth of the country's entire tax revenue and a quarter of all exports a member of the bath alone a city council believes the international community should be stepping in to prevent madrid abusing the region. they don't want to let us vote but people are voting with their feet they are actually crossing the street going over to wherever the intervention has taken place and defending the institutions from the street massively this is an attack on the this is actually
a state of exception we're the military police or intervening in the normal democratic functioning of the catalan institutions and this is why our people are on the street blocking the entrance to some of these institutions saying that whoever enters will be able to come out unless the people over and right now and in the street allow them to come out and we ask the international community to intervene and stop this abuse this abuse of the catalan people on the market in catalonia and in europe in general this concerns all of us because right now it's catalonia tomorrow it could be the rest of spain or you in other places in europe. donald trump's former campaign chair was wiretapped by the u.s. government both before and after the election c.n.n.
is reporting a loss just six months after the president was mocked for claiming his residence was tapped welcome to obama tapped my phone i want population president c.n.n. has learned that investigators wiretapped former champ campaign chairman paul made a fort under secret court order both before and after the twenty six thousand election to recap in march the president tweeted that he had learned obama wiretapped in a trump tower in his latest report c.n.n. says this was done because his campaign was yet again suspected of quote having ties with russia. from a campaign chair poor mother for it's now demanding the justice department immediately probe the obama administration's actions ati's caleb moore reports. trump's former campaign manager may have been wiretapped by the f.b.i. c.n.n. citing its sources says that paul man a fourth was wiretapped before and after the
u.s. election under a warrant issued by the foreign intelligence surveillance act this sounds serious but remember how no one took trump seriously after he claimed he was tapped where is the proof i mean it was an idiotic move to anyone here disagree he wasn't going to hold anybody radionic where did trump get these ideas where is he getting his information we have a quote ridiculous unquote president well now it turns out that perhaps donald trump wasn't losing his mind after all especially when you take into account that paul man a fourth has a residence at trump tower now the c.n.n. report about the f.b.i. spying on metaphor it could of course be wrong but if it isn't it suggests that lawmakers from both parties and leaders of the intelligence community misled the public i have not seen any evidence that this has occurred intelligence committee has not seen evidence of this is occurred what the president charged president obama with wiretapping him it's not true there was no such wiretap or to
be mounted against the president the president worked at the time or as a candidate or against his campaign they can't talk about wiretapping or trumped scandals it up throwing russia in there somewhere the c.n.n. report suggests that data collected from spying on paul manna for it shows that he encouraged russia to help out with trump's campaign the spokeswoman for russia's ministry of foreign affairs says she can't wait to hear what comes next do you see russia's role you're right to legitimize illegal actions without this external factor it would be a new watergate but with this war in madly the story was sent along the alley of national security the finale will be spectacular can't wait to see it now there's a lot of contradicting claims from a lot of high ranking people. at this point there's a lot of key players involved obama trump manna for the democrats the republicans and the russians now paul man a fourth says he wants an investigation to help clear things up but it could easily
have the opposite effect. artsy new york. hollywood looks to crack down on russia those details after this break. in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations perforations from washington the washington post media the media the voters elected to run this country business equals power. bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. german interests european interests are really deeply intertwined with each other i think. the world. having
interests. to. one side has to work with the opposite. that's really exactly the world. isn't relevant to the. program hollywood star morgan freeman has targeted russia and then usual suppose it meddling in the us presidential election we have been attacked we are. at war imagine this movie script a former k.g.b. spy angry at the collapse of his mother and plots of course. the sights on his from. the united states. to stand by and
this is no. the clip from the committee to investigate a new group created by artists but question marks are being raised behind the project. takes a closer look. hollywood legend morgan freeman has those stranger to dramatic movie scripts like this one welcome to the cia course at the time of increasing tension in the traditional american tradition american to fight each other. to suspect the truth playing a cia director at the center of a tense standoff between the usa and a hardline russian president sound familiar it seems the boundaries between. hollywood fantasy and real life politics are increasingly blurring indeed freeman himself supported hillary clinton's presidential bid her life's work has been about breaking barriers and so would her presidency now he's waving to the russian
election hacking scandal his latest video is part of a new initiative called the committee to investigate russia a lot of pretty big names from the film and media industry such as hollywood director rob reiner teaming up with the government elites as if the multiple investigative committees already looking into alleged russian meddling weren't enough here's a team of true patriots the media does talk about it a lot and for whatever reason it doesn't seem to be penetrating into what we what i refer to as the real americans i mean patriotic americans that wave the flag and speaking of patriots rob reiner has made it pretty clear what he himself thinks of donald trump's supporters how do you explain the millions and millions of people who actually like would be hear from donald trump and are taking messages and orders from us in the media how do you explain that what we do there are a lot of people who are racist are my guy position is clear here's another member
of the committee a familiar face to those following the russia u.s. election hacking saga james clapper former director of national intelligence investigated moscow's meddling but didn't find enough evidence to prove collusion between the trump campaign and russian foreign nationals but he's still convinced the russians did it after all it's in their blood the russians who typically. genetically driven to co-opt. purgatory to. gain favor or whatever so we await their latest findings perhaps one day they will be the subject of their very own hollywood blockbuster. a crime and spokesperson downplayed the video as can be misled of the once actually going on media analyst line allowed in some context to the story. of. apparently seeking revenge for the
collapse of his country against what the united states that caused this but then we have a group of people a couple of neo cons and intelligence head who said that the n.s.a. never spied and his people said that there was no wiretapping of of trump or anybody in his news group you had the individual mr frome who came up with that classic axis of evil and then you have the most preposterous cobbled together glued series of how by virtue of this revenge russia yet again somehow caused this election to be hacked or lost or whatever absolving hillary clinton of just losing it wasn't her fault and the sixty three or so american million americans who voted for drop they were part of a brainwashing some weird kind of telepathy that from the kremlin where people all
the sudden found themselves like robots voting for donald trump for reasons they don't know why hollywood imbues certain people with this sense of expertise and everything they are actor they play roles they inhabit positions that they're not they're almost chameleon and all of a sudden when given the opportunity to do so they become experts at hollywood has fallen from the only tom green clamping down on moscow as u.s. lawmakers issued a bill that could block russian broadcasters from being shown in the u.s. it could allow u.s. content providers to break their contracts leaving bashing channels without any legal recourse samir khan takes up the story. amendments was proposed by senator john mccain and could potentially create a major barrier for russian channels broadcasting in the u.s. it would not require distributors to carry content from television networks owned
or controlled by the russian government the proposal is bundled into a defense spending bill if this becomes law it could jeopardize current contracts between russian channels and u.s. distributors could potentially impact our t.v. which broadcasts in the us back in january r.t. was singled out in an intelligence report which accused the network of trying to sway the us presidential election in donald trump's favor the report however contained no evidence whatsoever only citing what's viewed as a negative reporting on hillary clinton r t is also a regular topic at senate hearings russia today a propaganda call them whatever are probably going to or the russian propaganda on steroids or again of the russian government i don't know whether average citizens find it more persuasive but. you know i'm afraid they do in the area of public diplomacy. russia eats our lunch it's also worth
noting that there are several foreign governments who funded channels in the us to including france twenty four which is fully owned by the french government all jazeera owned by qatar also a b.b.c. which is funded by fees set by the british government but russia is the only one targeted so as always russia seems to be getting special attention. as the mayor pointed out the amendments part of the national defense authorization act but the bombshell plan is buried deep inside the multi-page document the part about russia's summarized in just a few lines between details on funding of the us military sector experts told us all this is no coincidence the defense bill often has thing stuck in it have nothing to do with the fence it's like that's how congress gets things done that they wouldn't be able to just do. as a freestanding bill because it would be too ridiculous or it would have too much opposition so they stick it in the defense bill figuring that the whole damn thing
will get passed to members of congress don't read the bills and so. but it really could slip past most of the members completely. presumably they have staff people that read it better but they don't read it there's an obsession on capitol hill and in the mainstream media with with r t because argues it's active in our two years watched but also in this is very important because our t. carries perspectives that are not available on the mainstream media the fact of the matter is john mccain and lindsey graham the people behind this amendment the atlantic council and the others that are trying to silence art they are the totalitarians they are the enemies of free speech they are the enemies of the first amendment they don't want anyone coming on television saying that america's foreign policy is a disaster it is broken it is making us. more vulnerable to attack and it's costing a fortune they cannot stand competition in the area of ideas so rush is not only
the flavor of the mob just the flavor of the year you know there is that obsession there is the investigate russia committee or a bunch of hollywood liberals got together with a bunch of neo corns and are finding the reds under our beds there's a hysteria going on in america i still would like to believe that the emergent average american thinks it's absolutely nuts i hope it stays that way hopefully this will blow over at some point in our blowouts. the critically acclaimed drug gang drama narcos has crossed from fiction to a brutal reality after one of the location manages for its producers netflix was shot in mexico the man had reportedly been scouting new locations ahead of the show's move from colombia to mexico for its upcoming fourth season the victim was found dead in his bullet ridden car in a remote area which is said to have some of mexico's highest murder rates but it's not the only controversy the creators of narcos have found themselves in.
