on the incident. the incident took place in the northwestern village of mussar on an province and that's one of the last remaining rebel strongholds in the country now according to the russian defense ministry the pilot did manage to eject from the plane and pair show down to the ground in an area that's actually controlled by the terrorist group. he was then subsequently killed in a fight with terrorists again that's coming from the russian ministry of defense they also added that it's believed that a anti-aircraft missile system was actually used in the downing of the plane and very quickly after the attack took place videos and photos surfaced online most of them very graphic and disturbing showing rebels taking photos of the dead pilots and stomping on the debris of the crashed plane now. of the group that has claimed responsibility of the tax say that they are part of the moderate opposition free syrian army but it's widely believed that they are in fact actually allied with the

latest incarnation of. they have in the past enjoyed support from washington and even received weapons from the u.s. at this point russia did react quite quickly and has already carried out a number of persuasion strikes in the area with the ministry reporting that over thirty militants were killed as a result. the u.s. denies that it supplies any surface to air missiles to its partners in syria the weapon used to shoot down the russian jet according to moscow the pentagon stressed it has no intention of selling any weapons of this kind to syria in the future. friday saw the release of a controversial memo in the u.s. that had a donald trump meeting plenty of resistance in washington the document alleges that the f.b.i. and justice department abused their powers to secure a warrant to spy on trump's election campaign and the declassified memo has put the investigation into trump's links to russia in doubt the memo outlines the warrant was used for surveillance of a former trump aide and it was granted using
12:04 am
a highly controversial dossier allegedly funded by the democratic party and the clinton foundation but the f.b.i. is accused of not revealing the bias behind the document some strong reaction online followed i read the memo and feel sick the f.b.i. is completely lawless and there is no rule of law in america people must go to prison over this. fisa war and without a dossier which means no bush occlusion story with our dossier which means no milla special counsel with the dossier paid for by clinton d.n.c. shuts down so there it is the f.b.i. took an unverified political dossier paid for by the clinton campaign in the d.n.c. and they used it as a central piece of their requests to get a warrant for spying on american citizens and political opponents in the trump campaign the f.b.i. extended the warrant on three separate occasions and the contradicting testimonies
12:05 am
of the f.b.i.'s former chief and deputy director and twenty seventeen have left many questioning whether the agency has become political. i think it's terrible if you want to know the truth i think it's a disgrace what's going on in this country i think it's a disgrace the memo was sent to congress it was declassified congress will do whatever they're going to do but i think it's a disgrace what's happening in our country and when you look at that and you see that and so many other things what's going on a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves and much worse than the. kind of. what this means for the american politics the pending release of a classified government memo is shaking up washington d.c. if indeed the obama administration used the department of justice and the f.b.i. to spy on trump during the campaign this could be quite a scandal it would discredit the d.o.j. and the f.b.i. as nonpartisan the law enforcers and destroy the democrats now the democratic
12:06 am
leadership doesn't want to be destroyed so here's a few of their last ditch efforts to keep their boat afloat. now adam shift from the democratic side of the house intelligence committee says that he's preparing a counter memo he says the republicans edited the document to fit their political agenda he says he's preparing a memo of his own that will expose the misleading character of the document. that the f.b.i. says that they haven't been given sufficient time to review the document and they have grave concerns about the facts that have been removed from the memo as expressed during our initial review we have grave concerns about material emissions a fact that fundamentally impact the memos accuracy. the. democrats say the document was altered before the president saw it they say that these changes were made without their knowledge so the vote to release it is
12:07 am
invalid. but discovered late tonight the chairman news made. material changes the memo he sent to the white house changes not approved by the committee the white house therefore reviewing the document the committee has not approved for release however some of these changes are aimed at the request of the democrats and the f.b.i. themselves others included minor edits and grammatical fixes. now leaving house democrat nancy pelosi says that releasing the document poses a significant threat to national security intelligence is that it's the cia the d.n.a. at the end i. national defense everybody has their element of it and sources and methods must be protected now keep in mind this whole big stir is over just for pieces of paper but those four pieces of paper contain vital information information with potentially enough voltage to light up washington d.c.
12:08 am
for months if not years. r.t. new york we discussed the consequences of the memo being made public with several experts. as an american citizen i am outraged by what i read here they perpetrated a fraud on our court to obtain the rights to surveil american citizens and you know that is just outrageous behavior to think that multiple parties in our government would perpetrate a fraud against a court to go away over a boy and surveil and active president members of an active presidential campaign that in and of itself without considering the bias that is that is just outrageous that anybody who is actually involved with this needs to be the subject of a vigorous prosecution and needs to be made an example of this contains some troubling evidence of f.b.i. malfeasance those of us who are critics of the f.b.i. have been saying this for years this is how the f.b.i.
12:09 am
does business they do it district issues lee they do it by stabbing people in the back they do it by setting people up by entrapping them by tricking them and that's exactly what they did with the price of court they played the face of court judge by not telling them the source of this deal does the they plead that judge by not telling them that this was a a partisan. report and and they got their warrant they got their warrant anyway. the court of arbitration of his support overturn the lifetime bonds of thirty nine russian a one time first day they were part of the deputy scandal dating back to the twenty fourteen such attempts with russia accused of widespread substance abuse because of a tree just unanimously found that the evidence put forward by the i you see in relation to this much or did not have the same weight in each individual case this is one in twenty eight cases the evidence collected was found to be
12:10 am
insufficient to establish that's an untidy looking rule violation it was committed it's concerned. this does not mean that these twenty. innocents but. due to insufficient evidence the abuse of the sanctions and old individual results achieved in such reinstituted it was an emotional day for the russian athletes involved you can see the reaction of one cross country ski. back of the united. world of athletic. team russia dog the judgment was swift and immediately became gospel for much of the olympic world ever since the infamous report on doping in russia saw the light of day but its claims of a state sponsored conspiracy the pretext for the ban have been shaken to their very
12:11 am
foundation in the last few days bombshell one. twenty eight russian athletes make a comeback from a lifetime ban the abuse of the sanctions and old individual results achieved in such reinstituted over the past few years the international olympic committee unleashed a the ultimate punishment on them following a damning verdict the cheated the tests it seemed that their dreams careers and lifetime goals were annihilated in one stroke but last thursday the top sports court had a different opinion on that the ban was no more those stripped of their medals got them back the i.o.c. was both red faced and furious its members see the thing with bitterness and resentment but all things considered the i.o.c. had some trouble standing beside their initial ruling a lot of people asking hell the i.o.c.
12:12 am
got the brief so wrong that they were able to throw it out so quickly. well let's let's let's you can look at the ca's decision. well let's let's see who will be competing here in the games coming up then we can have this conversation again the embarrassment is understandable the court of appeals decision to reverse the ban was among other things based on the testimony of the very same people who convinced the i.o.c. to impose the sanctions in the first place the mclaren report didn't find any individual violations of doping rules of individuals boards men because there was only a very limited time the team of mr mclaren have fifty seven day thing born showed to. the russian paralympic team also had its very decided this week two years ago the doors of the summer games in real were slammed in their faces
12:13 am
a blanket ban meant no one was welcome this february a team of almost eighty people will have a shot at the pyong chang golds as so-called neutral athletes not great but it's something russians are regularly tested and they're amongst the most scrutinized by rafa it's in the world. and the discipline vision of while we now have a greater confidence that the anti doping system in russia is no longer a compromise and corrupt and given the latest winning streak for russia those athletes who have cleared their names in all likelihood will up their game bigger than of. we discussed the issue with philip birch a lawyer at the center for law and justice he told us he welcomes the decision. of first of all it's a great victory for those twenty cleats fart over a year to claim their innocence and. this isn't confirmed that they have not
12:14 am
committed any wrongdoing and the i.o.c. had wrongly sanctioned them for something they had not done theoretically. could challenge those this isn't the grounds on which you can charan's this isn't some before this resupply in court are very limited and i don't see how they could be successful after the verdict was announced russian athletes were of course in high spirits as they had believed their dreams and careers had been dashed loyal i'm assuming you know i found out about the decision during my training c.a.'s decided to overturn my disqualification my band i had only positive thoughts in my head about that i've been ready to ski for a long long time keeping up my training but i had a question right away what about the olympics are we able to dispute this and get an invitation but i was waiting for the results of the appeal when i came back from practice it's amazing news then my scouts and team started congratulating each
12:15 am
other such a relief when not guilty and the whole public will know that a lot of people thought we date but only those close to us knew it's not true. the old vehicles i've been training with my pushchair the whole season and now because of what's happened i've been paired with someone else we'll have to adapt our techniques and make adjustments for way differences and work a lot in our start. give you some my mojo is for me and for those who can't be there the whole situation has only me me angrier and even more determined to win. or you say they are not guilty or you say they are guilty and they have ruled that there is not enough proof for a doping offense hence they are not guilty and this is very important also because it makes to make a report to become not. bases which is enough to convict
12:16 am
athletes and every seeing that was up to now was based on the mclaren report and if this is now not basis enough to convict that lets them i do not understand why also all the russian at plates could have been banned colic tearfully without having any any proof of the hoping. whether it's in the us city of baltimore skyrocketed in twenty seventeen with fifty six killings per one hundred thousand people in a new record for the city that already has a reputation for being dangerous and crime ridden. to cities embody america never been to a more depressingly the city of baltimore baltimore struggles with a record high murder rate. murder out of
