7:04 am
those accused of not revealing the bias behind the document or the f.b.i. extended the warrant on three separate occasions and the contradicting testimonies of the f.b.i.'s former chief and deputy director last year have left many questioning whether the agency has become political. takes a look at what this means for american politics. 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 nonpartizan a law enforcers and destroy the democrats now the democratic leadership doesn't want to be destroyed so here's a few of their last ditch efforts to keep their boat afloat. now adam schiff from the democratic side of the house intelligence committee says the republicans edited the document to fit their political agenda he says he's
7:05 am
preparing a memo of his own that will expose the misleading character of the document. as expressed during our initial review we have grave concerns about material emissions affect the fundamental impact the most accuracy. discovered late tonight the chairman new news made material changes to 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 came at the request of the democrats and the f.b.i. themselves others included minor edits and grammatical fixes. and it never hurts to throw russia into the mix is it possible that the republican chairman of the house intel committee has been compromised by the russians as
7:06 am
a possible of the actual russian agents running the house intel committee on the republican side i hope that's not the case that 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. for months if not years. r.t. new york. a former cia analyst and whistleblower john kiriakou says this follows what the f.b.i. has been doing for years. 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. does business they do it surreptitiously 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 place 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
7:07 am
a partisan. report and and they got their warrant they got their warrant anyway. the court of arbitration for sport overturned the lifetime bans of twenty eight russian athletes on thursday as well as reinstating the assault elim pick models or part of the doping scandal dating back to twenty fourteen with russia accused of widespread substance abuse eleven other athletes sort of also removed but will not compete at the upcoming games in south korea or the decision to uphold the appeals was met with disappointment within the international olympic committee gas arbitrators unanimously found that the evidence put forward by the i.o.c. in relation to this matter did not have the same weight in each individual case this is why in twenty eight cases the evidence collected was found to be insufficient to establish that's an anti-doping rule violation was committed by the
7:08 am
athletes concerned. this does not mean that these twenty eight actually start declared in a sense but in their case due to insufficient evidence the appears so held the sanctions and old and their individual results achieved in such reinstated these costs a decision is extremely disappointing and surprising for. the the i.o.c. we would never have expected these these decision. the need for reform. in know the internal structure of costs. r.t.c. goes down often looks back over the announcement that shook the world that would support. team rush o. dog the judgment was swift and he immediately became gospel for much of the olympic
7:09 am
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 foundation in the last few days bombshell one. twenty eight russian athletes make a comeback from a lifetime ban over the past few years the international olympic committee unleashed to the ultimate punishment on them following a damning verdict they 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.
7:10 am
had some trouble standing beside their initial ruling lot of people asking hell the i.o.c. 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 decision but 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 dissensions in the first place the mclaren report didn't find the individual violations of the rules of individual sports men's because there was only a very limited time the team of mr mclaren had fifty seven days thing born sure. to . the russian paralympic team also had its very decided this week two
7:11 am
years ago the doors of the summer games in real were slammed in their faces a blanket ban meant no one was welcome this february a team of almost eighty people will have a shot at the golds as so-called neutral athletes not great but it's something russian are regularly tested and they're amongst the most scrutinized after it's in the world. under the supervision 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 you know likelihood will up their game bigger than of r.t. . was an emotional day for the russian athletes involved so you can see the reaction of one of the cross-country skiers cleared of doping just there after the verdict was to many more russian athletes were noise spirits of course they believe
7:12 am
their dreams careers had been shattered. loyalists when 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 yes then my skeleton team started congratulating each other such a relief we're not guilty in the whole public will know that a lot of people thought we date only those close to us knew it's not tree. or you say they are not guilty or you say they are guilty and they have fruit that there is not enough proof for a doping offense hence they are not guilty and this is very important
7:13 am
also because it makes the mclaren report to become not in a basis which is enough to convict at leats and everything that was. up to now was based on the mclaren report and if this is now not bases enough to convict that lets them i do not understand why also all the russian at plates could have been banned collectively without having any any proof of the opening of back in december the russian flag and last one was banned by the i.o.c. for appearing at the korean games the other it will compete as neutrals or running agency as designed an alternative uniform for us and found.

a smaller farts that is probably on the mind for the b.b.c. sure that in order because you do a duty of impartiality. we discussed this issue with the director general at the institute of economic affairs which was behind one of the referendum reports on the b.b.c. . but it's true that we are no longer in a referendum period and it is true as the b.b.c. said in the statement they have furnished you with that it's no longer a binary choice but the problem is this although there are a wide range of choices really those range of options are subsets of the remain camp and the leave camp i think it's pretty poor that a public broadcaster a skewed their guests and panelists so dramatically in this direction on the top political issue of the times. in general in britain
7:17 am
a stablished figures famous figures and influential people have tended to be in favor of e.u. membership it's more the ordinary man or woman who rebelled against the political stab recently tends to be on the leaves side seems to be that balancing for people's views on bricks it and making sure you have a fair share of voice from both ends and all ends of the argument should be a very very high priority indeed. i think the politicians on the leave side of the argument those who are in favor of it are beginning to lose their patience with the b.b.c. but i would say that the b.b.c. now should be concerned but there are politicians who are seriously raising in the british parliament in the house of lords genuine concern about whether the b.b.c. really can be considered a neutral broadcaster one that doesn't just show a diversity of views but a proper balance. of the russian capital has been hit by severe snowstorms over the past few days in what's been called
