2:09 am
a vision which is emotionally invested in this case and wanted to to appeal and it looks like they've gotten their way they filed this notice with it's a very difficult case to appeal because it's a fact laden opinion by judge leon he didn't really do much to change the law he accepted all of the government's product markets there and i competitive theories so it's a difficult one to to appeal but i understand why they did it because if you recall when i was here last was the day after the opinion comcast put in a bid for the foxx. sas it's as you said this is going to do it they did it five minutes after the program was over and now their bit is clouded by this appeal just as it was with the trial very interesting and so this is just a notice that they may appeal it's not an actual appeal yet how long do they have to ninety days ninety days so we'll know within ninety days or less and i would think that they would act you know it will be interesting to see how quickly they do act there's a whole separate with. time warner until february of two thousand and nineteen

2:21 am
prime broadcasting live. this is our team international thomas is certainly glad to have you with us now the u.s. department of justice has charged twelve russians with hacking offenses linked to do two thousand and sixteen presidential election. indictment charges russian military officers by name. for conspiring to interfere with the twenty eight sixteen presidential election. eleven of the defendants are charged with conspiring to hack in the computers steal documents and release those documents with the intent to interfere in the election well i have the document here in my hands and as you can see it's pretty long twenty nine pages to be precise so let me read to you exactly what it says while russian intelligence officers knowingly and
2:22 am
intentionally conspired with each other and with persons known and unknown to the grand jury to gain an authorized access to hack into the computers of u.s. persons an entity's involved in the twenty sixteenth us presidential election still documents from those computers and stage releases of the stolen documents to interfere with the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election but regardless of what this says the department of justice found out that this so-called conspiracy didn't affect the vote count or the election results there's no allegation that the conspiracy changed the phone count or affected any election result well the announcement came during trump's meeting with the queen at windsor castle and just days before he's scheduled to meet with president putin so we'll just have to see if this is a trigger some sort of a domestic resistance and the russian foreign ministry has given its reaction moscow says the timing of the announcement shows that its purpose was to negatively
2:23 am
effect to the trouble putin summit r.t.c. would have done of earlier spoke to my colleague you know neal on the hiking and. as for new information i mean the military man himself they would never reveal their sources or that we know that they've been questioning a lot of people as he has a few men in his at his disposal so their capacity is quite limited and everything in this investigation when it comes to the hacking of the democratic party it devolves around the d.n.c. server so we don't know as i've said where moolah got his information from but what we do know is where he didn't get it from apparently and that is the f.b.i. as they themselves have numerously admitted to fail to examine the server themselves have a listen when the d.n.c. provide access for to the f.b.i. for your technical folks to review what happened. we never got direct access
2:24 am
to the machines themselves all up begs the question doesn't it if the f.b.i. had no access to d.n.c. servers who hurt in this exact case we don't know exactly but we know that previously all the information about this server came from a company named kraut strike it's a company that was hired by the d.n.c. received money for the from the d.n.c. for maintaining and taking care of their servers and so they were the ones who provided the f.b.i. with all the logs and all the information and all the strike itself says that the information they gave it's a carbon copy of it's like the exact same thing as what was on the actual server there's no way real way of proving that. you know very fine bad because they have tampered with this quite a bit they have already restructured it back in twenty sixteen in this whole server so that did raise some questions as well you did see never turn the server over to
2:25 am
law enforcement if you're investigating either from a law enforcement or from an intelligence standpoint that hacking by foreign hostile government when you want the server would net help you number one identify who the attacker was if they had turned the server over to either you or director call me maybe we would have no more so i guess what i'm asking you is why would the victim of a crime not turn over a server to the intelligence community or to law enforcement and this question is what many many people are asking because think of it from a following standpoint say there was a crime in some apartment the police show at the door and then the victim's roommate shows up and says look i live in the same room i saw everything happened here's your forensics like fingerprints you know traces of hair d.n.a. you pictures from the crime scene you're all good. and the police they say oh then
2:26 am
fine then we won't examine the actual crime scene since what you're showing to us is the exact copy and the exact like account of events of what happened this is pretty much what the f.b.i. did so that's that's why this raises so many questions as to the situation we have though as it stands we've got twelve russian agents so-called agents indicted what happens now is there a trial well naturally yes this is what mueller is pursuing but there's a catch because look at who he's indicted has indicted several intelligence officers of russia and obviously there is a trial that's based in russia of course and if there is a trial it is said to happen on the u.s. soil no one in their right mind would be sending intelligence officers to a foreign country i mean it doesn't really matter whether or not the are accused of anything whether or not they're guilty or not it just it's intelligence officers they have like information clearances and everything the some of them may not be
2:27 am
allowed to travel abroad at all so miller has found is finding himself with this indictment in a very comfortable position because if a trial happens it will be a trial in absentia which means chances are nobody will represent these intelligence officers which pretty much guarantees a guilty verdict daniel mcadams executive director of the ron paul institute believes the timing of the cases if it. if you're the victim of a crime why would you not want to hand the evidence over to the police the fact of the matter is the company they had doing their security is that it is a politically biased company that was invite involved in all sorts of things to have our say in other things so it is a it is a big question but the other big question really is the timing but once again we have an indictment on a friday before a weekend but not just any weekend this is the weekend before the much anticipated trump hooten summit of the political implications of dropping the indictments to poison the waters in advance of the trumpet and summit this is clearly the work of
2:28 am
the u.s. deep state. british police say that they have found at the source of a nerve agent that killed a woman in the town of amesbury and left her partner in critical condition they say a bottle was retrieved from the house of the survivor and that it was analyzed at the nearby military laboratory at porton down. on wednesday july eleventh a small bottle was recovered during searches of charlie rose house in amesbury it was taken to put down for tests following those tests scientists have now confirmed to us that the substance contained within the boss who is novacek. of police are investigating whether there is any link between the amesbury incident and the screwball poisoning in salisbury back in march the area in amesbury around the house where the number chalk was found is still cordoned off officials say that there is not believed to be any wider threat to the public we heard from dave colum professor of organic chemistry at cornell university he says there is no evidence
2:29 am
to link the cells brain amesbury cases. it's impossible to make a connection and there been no data presented so you're at the mercy of the authorities assuring us what they found and what they know what it is and you know how bottle ended up in there they. and that matter whether or not they actually were poisoned by not which are if you're allowed to get down to i find it suspicious that they're carving no but chuck around in in what's called a bottle i would think the container they use might be a little easier than a bottle so but we have no information on it so but it yeah i find the whole thing suspicious. donald trump is claiming relations with the u.k. are better than ever the us president gave a glowing appraisal of theresa may during a visit to the prime minister's checkers residence outside london on day two of his visit to britain. give relationship terms of grades the highest level of special
2:30 am
yesterday at breakfast lunch and dinner with or through something very special discussion here there was something something very special this incredible woman right here. a very smart very tough very capable person the broadest. security cooperation special relationship i think prime minister made for her partnership have a lot of respect for the prime minister special relationship long tradition of friendship collaboration and i think she's a terrific woman i think she's doing a terrific job. made those remarks despite a newspaper interview a day earlier when he slammed the prime minister's plans for braggs it saying that they would kill any chance of a trade deal with america he went on to suggest that boris johnson who recently resigned as u.k. foreign secretary would make a great prime minister although trump later backtracked calling the coverage of that interview fake news. well meanwhile protesters against
