whether or not the long awaited miller probe into trumped russia collusion will deliver a smoking gun us democrats looks set to launch their own investigation intend it seems on still achieving one thing. for you a peach somebody you have to persuade the american public or to to have to compete is a long way down the road we don't have the facts yet. as some in washington continue to ratchet up talk of regime change in caracas the self proclaimed interim president returns home from a latin american tour without upset or incident. french president emanuel
mccrone outlines his grandiose vision for a new europe amid sliding popularity and bricks rose but is told to focus on mass protests and drawing criticism at home. and the u.k. primary school caves into pressure and suspends its lessons on homosexuality after hundreds of angry parents keep their children home in protest. you're watching are to international coming to life straight from the russian capital where it's just turned for pham welcome to the program. we start in the u.s. where senior u.s. democrats are demanding access to all communications between donald trump and lot of near putin that's amid claims that the u.s. president concealed details of what he spoke about with his russian counterpart the following request has been sent to the white house. the committee's requests the by
march the fifteenth twenty nineteen the department produce all documents communications regardless of form and classification to refer relate to any communications between president trump and president putin democrats are doubling down on their efforts to put trump under ever more intense scrutiny regarding alleged collusion with russia and that could be because there's talk the current miller probe into the issue will prove to be a disappointment scaled up and explains. there's an old saying among cops and prosecutors if you throw enough at a wall eventually something will stick and this old saying usually expressed with less polite terminology seems to now be the montra of the democrats in congress gerry navl or has been selected to lead the charge impeachment is a long way down the road we don't we don't have the facts yet but we're going to initiate. a proper investigation to you impeach somebody you have to persuade the american public or to to happen to remember the bob muller investigation that
highly expensive two year long probe into allegations that donald trump had colluded with russia not too long ago democrats had many people convinced that it would be a huge game changer. well the final report is imminent and some are worried that it won't contain a bombshell or smoking gun revelation but some democrats seem to have the same overall goal because we're going to go in there really. i eighty one people have received a letter from the house judiciary committee they plan on following up on every last lead from the testimony of trump's former warrior michael cohen at this point they are planning to investigate the relations between the white house and trump's family the firing of james komi foreign trade deals and much much more and it won't
just be the judiciary committee that is looking into donald trump you have to do is follow the transcripts if there were names that were mentioned records that were mentioned during the hearing we're going to take a look at all of that the u.s. constitution lays out procedures for trying and removing a president who is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors the idea is to put a check and balance on the executive branch so that it is not above the law however it seems that as of late investing. ations and impeachment have turned into just another play in the never ending political football game. r.t. new york the white house has reacted with scorn to news every new probe saying the democrats were opening up a quote disgraceful and abusive investigation into tired false allegations former us republican congressman michael patrick flanagan believes a democrat controlled inquiry will backfire the democrats knowing that it's not going to be much of a report are now trying to build their own campaign and continue the to video them
all or in their own clumsy imperfect way and their goal is to take this president down and make sure that he is in no way possibly reelected next year and so they will do their best to keep this alive if war was keeping his or his his summer his investigation somehow alive they would be doing this because the need for this investigation would be would be vitiated by a bible or doing his but now motors done and he's apparently not going to report much of anything this is the democrats furious so they're going to build an investigation that they control that they rock up that they wanted to have and no one will believe it. but as well as opposition leader is back home and rallying support after washington won there'd be trouble if he was arrested one had been touring latin america in violation of a travel ban imposed by caracas his return has prompted very different reactions on
twitter from a cheering u.s. state department to a defined venezuelan president in this has welcomed back who are. good to see them as well and security forces standing on the right side of history the world must unite push to end the brutal regime and peacefully restore democracy. the world is watching as venezuela confronts imperial aggression and moves forward with dignity we will continue to hold high the flag of our free people who raised determined to mobilize in search of freedom. the ambassadors of france germany the netherlands and spain greeted at the airport along with a crowd of journalists all flag waving supporters welcomed him home and i rally in the capital why don't them to mobilize for yet another protest against president maduro on tuesday. meanwhile that as well as becoming a problem for others in the region as well the u.s. has threatened to tighten economic screws on cuba over havana stance the u.s.
national security adviser said the new restrictions would target cuba's military john bolton also tweeted the region's nations should condemn caracas and gaza takes a look at why washington thinks it can dictate who's time people should be on. the united states is exceptional literally that by different rules to you and me of the nations states groups you see they have the right to decide who rules where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which do not and state supports any number of dictators who violate human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. you don't see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the credibility of the argument you're making no i don't think it does make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid to
use the phrase monroe doctrine. it's an archaic nineteenth century policy that basically says no nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out instead of protecting american nations the us now toppled governments it didn't like there now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world and they are and a bill that legitimizes us meddling there terry quire threat assessment and strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and say
no not that that is who asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here and merica knows better in syria half the world away it's the same story in syria the united states where used to plumb us in work with our partners to expel every last iranian brute and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the life of me i don't remember syrians are asking the united states to get rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good now is the time to boot them out china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt
to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what is but nine policy protecting the weak from european. colonizes what that has been turned into a license to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically but on the
continent oh you've got to be special all right we have all sorts of recent cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially obliterated any possibility of democracy but this is true throughout the decades that the united states has meddled in the affairs of latin america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another whether in one thousand nine hundred fifty four with arden's or the interventions that it carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s. supporting brutal military regimes in countries like el salvador although venezuela is in the vice the moment cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron control. with drugs that just around the corner and euro skeptic party is gaining
momentum in the french president emanuel necron has outlined his grand vision of a reform in europe his open letter features a number of ambitious plans for more on that we go live now to our team starlet dubinsky charlotte what a bright new future does micron envision. well this letter has been outlined to citizens of europe and it's been published in newspapers in the twenty eight member states of the european union now as you said this comes as many centrist politicians fearing that they're not going to do as well in the forthcoming european elections as we've seen polls suggesting that nationalist and populist parties are likely to gain seats across europe in those forthcoming elections now mark corns outlining his vision or in a sense of europe as he calls it but he also outlined that there are threats to
europe. nervous since the second world war has europe the danger well he sees that danger as being two fold one it's the euro skeptic m.p.s. euro skeptic politicians people who he's described as exploiting public anger but it's not just euro skeptic politicians these pointing the fingers that he's also pointing the fingers towards those who don't want to do anything he want the status quo to remain as it is he says in this letter this is about people who would be sleepwalking towards a diminished europe he talks in his letter about this refold approach this freedom this protection this progress of europe that he sees as being very important and outlines the idea of establishing a new e.u. all these to make sure that this vision of europe is something that comes through full he also talks about migration a very sticky issue for many centrists and something that europe has been battling
now with for the last few years and he describes the need to set out new rules for the brooders of the schengen area and also a force of police that all of europe works towards have a listen to this. no community can create a sense of belonging if it does not have protected territorial limits with therefore need to rethink the shingle area all those who want to be part of it should comply with obligations of responsibility stringent border controls and solidarity a single asylum policy with common acceptance and refusal rules. one of the other things he talked about was interference and meddling suggesting that foreign powers shouldn't be able to finance parties in europe take a look at this. i propose the creation of a european agency for the protection of democracies to provide each e.u. member states with european experts to protect the election process against cyberattacks manipulation. so what's the reaction been well across europe many
politicians of slapped on the back for outlining his vision but here in france there has been a lot of criticism from opposition politicians some describe him as being like the character dr jekyll and mr hyde flip flopping on his policies being all about the words and not being about the substance this is of course not the first time we've heard some of these ideas from michael since he took office back in two thousand and seventeen and there's been criticism of social media of the fact the president might call while outlining this grand vision this renascence of europe is really struggling to control many of the things that are happening in france take the gallows s. protest this is an anti-government movement that's been going on now for more than three months sixteen consecutive saturdays of processed people have described times as being some of the worst in the last fifty years here in france and it's not just
the protests we're seeing protests by students protests by teachers protests by workers for the medical fields all unhappy with the reforms that my phone has been trying to push through since his election and many people say you know if you can't sort out things in your own country how can you then decide to outline what you think you should be doing feature some suggesting that the president is trying to bite off more than he can chew artist clear then good for bringing us that report. a british primary school suspend l.g.b. to lessen following pressure from outraged parents explain what caused their anger just after the break.
if you're watching art international welcome back to the program a primary school in the u.k. city of birmingham has caved into pressure and temporarily pulled the plug on its lessons on l g b t rights that's after hundreds of parents kept their children at home in protest across lines to playboy for more on this so polly what exactly provoked the wrath of the parents. well the cause of this route is a educational diversity program called no outside isn't it aims to teach kids about the different types of families that they might encounter and talking to them about things like the idea of having two mums or two dads and reading books to kids as young as four about the concept of same sex families and some of them feature things like two princes falling in love with each other and the program was devised
by the deputy head of the school at the center of this route his name's andrew marr fattened actually he's been nominated for the world's best teacher award take a look at him talking about the program. another was sick on both of them mostly got some tissues on them but on our side is about teaching to you are different you can sue friends with anybody this is huge going to. school we have to find ways to teach children to talk to come to them. but the majority of the parents at the school are on happy with andrew marr fats teaching methods it's a predominantly muslim school and parents fundamentally disagree with the idea of teaching kids about homosexuality in l g b t issues some of our viewers might know that islam in islam homosexuality is forbidden so up until now the school had
really held and said that they would continue this what they see as a very necessary diversity program but now a number of media outlets saying that the school has sent a letter to parents saying that the lessons are going to be stopped take a lesson. up to the end of this term we will not be delivering any no outsiders lessons in our long term year curriculum plan as this often has already been blocked for religious education equality assemblies will continue as normal and welcoming no outsiders isa's will be there through all this comes after protests last friday some six hundred parents said that they hadn't taken their kids to school that's eighty percent of the school's attendance of the school's pupils the school wouldn't confirm that number but these protests have been taking place for a while now ever since this rouse started and some of them have been pretty sizeable take
a look. i'm prior to the protests taking place there had been a big school petition that some four hundred predominantly muslim parents had signed calling on the school to stop these lessons say this is clearly an issue that's really riled up the parents in this school in the community i reported on the story from birmingham a couple of weeks ago and this is what the parents had to say to me this is not for their over your peers for the your deception kids. promoting homosexuality they should learn about you at a older age not right now because they can easy get you can once teach your kids no need to stay with boys and boys who that's not a good thing this was
a flower leader with a like it's equality act obviously clearly says you can't discriminate against religion and whatnot that's what they're doing it's ninety nine percent muslim it's not about being muslim that the jewish community the other communities the christian communities they're all have issues around the way things have been going . now i've been in touch with some of those parents from the school and so far what i've heard is that this diversity program hasn't exactly been stalled it's more that it's been pools for this and some of the headlines would suggest that it says sort of a big final ending to it that doesn't seem to be the case we've requested clarification from the school and we all still waiting for it but if the moment it looks that if the school sticks with this program and returns to it next or next year well it may well face the same protests all over again. you have to wait and see how the.
reporting live from london thank you. russia's foreign minister has discussed syrian reconciliation with the chief negotiator of the country's opposition on his visit to saudi arabia sergey lavrov express hope that the opposition would facilitate the return of refugees. we appreciate your commitment to finding solutions and we expect that you and other representatives of the syrian opposition who contribute to creating a constitutional committee and of course we expect that the responsible elements of the opposition support the provision of assistance to syrians by the international community not only in the form of humanitarian aid but also in terms of water supply educational and medical services and enabling refugees and displaced people to return to their homes. the russian foreign minister has just met with the members of the syrian opposition belonging to the so-called political wing of the
syrian opposition movement meaning that basically they're not exactly members of any militant group or on the ground i should say it was a surprise meeting really wasn't announced and it wasn't anywhere in the program in fact we journalists had already boarded the plane expecting to depart shortly so according to the russian foreign minister quoting to sergey lavrov they found some common ground as the talked about the possibility of the elections in syria and as well as the new syrian constitution this meeting is coming right after the russia's foreign ministries statement on the recent report by the o.p.c. w on last year's chemical attack in syria's duma now the russian foreign ministry is saying that they are studying this more than a hundred pages long report very carefully but the russian foreign ministry can already say that from what they can see is that the un back body is ignoring their information that certain parts of the attack could be staged like the video from
a hospital that emerged right after the attack this is something that russia had warned months in advance before that incident happened the vague conclusions the o.p.c. w. body is making in its report could be used to justify the u.s. british and french aggression against the syrian. government so this is what the russian ministry is talking about when they're saying that well at the o.p.c. wu somewhat you can norene russia's information that some parts of that chemical attack were staged. that's a global news update for this hour but don't forget you can always find us on a number of social media platforms such as twitter and facebook for up to the minute reports. the country has gone into a nihilistic fever that's why i think i got to hit the road and get out to
traveling across america to find what makes america take the charlatans the genius this is the quintessential american hero this is it we've come to a point around which allen is done saying we always are on the courageous stand on this whole gun culture is really important because. we're starting last with is going to headed east into the swamp we're going into the belly of the beast i think i want to leave now governor anymore gondo than it may be completely different but the end of this journey. with coal may just manufacture consent to step into the public will. when the ruling clauses protect themselves. with the fine merry go round of lives only the one percent.
we can all middle of the room sick. of the real news. when i was told seemed wrong but old rules just don't call. i mean you get to say proud disdain become educated and engage with equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground. in a world of big truth lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell the never we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other
