11:02 am
regardless of form and classification to refer overlay to any communications between president trump and president putin the u.s. democrats are doubling down on efforts to catch trump on alleged collusion with russia that could be because there's talk the current miller probe into the issue will prove to be a disappointment in that respect killed often 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 jerry nadler 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 so you have ph 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
11:03 am
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 transcript if there were names that were mentioned records that were
11:04 am
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 investigations and impeachment have turned into just another play in the never ending political football game. r.t. new york donald trump has branded the new efforts to impeach him harassment of innocent people he also pointed out that there is no evidence of collusion ties with russia former u.s. 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 campaigning continue the to video of them all are in their own clumsy imperfect way and their goal is to take this
11:05 am
president down and make sure that he is in no way possibly real acted next year and so they will do their best to keep this alive if more 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 motor is done and he's apparently not going to report much of anything this has the democrats furious so they're going to build an investigation that they control that they run that they can control the outcome of and what surprised price it will have the outcome that they wanted to have and no one will believe it. relatives of the children of french the hardys have appealed to the u.n. for the youngsters to be allowed back to france they're currently being held in camps in syrian kurdistan one of the lawyers who helped launch the complaint claims the children would be able to adapt to a normal life in france. when the french people every day for three years in
11:06 am
a row are being told that these children are time bombs they want to prove they're a petrie but in fact they're being deceived the eighty four children have already returned to france they have adapted to their being social license there ok. according to the save the children charity there are now more than two and a half thousand children in camps in northern syria from around thirty countries. the lawyer we just heard from thinks around one hundred of them are french france is currently dealing with the issue on a case by case basis but the majority of french people seem to be against the children's return a new poll found that sixty seven percent of respondents didn't want them in france we spoke to patrick our band the father of one of the victims of the about a claim concert attack in paris carried out by i saw he thinks the children of the hotties have to suffer the consequences of their parents' actions. parents are bearing responsibility for the future of their children they've left france voluntarily nobody forced them out they've decided to fight against friends they've
11:07 am
crossed themselves out of frauds and unfortunately their children should account for the consequences for me these children coming back is out of the question i don't even consider them french nationals our sister channel r.t. france spoke to persians to see what they thought about the children's fates. of all children should be protected and circumstances. it creates a real threat this children but they have to be hundred decayed it's risky to use off on these children since when the children danger overly need is good environment they will flourish. for more on this we are now joined live by political journalist and elizabeth motet welcome to the program now does rejecting the repatriation of these children not raise a legal problem they'd be left stateless. it depends entirely on whether the parents are all more likely the mother had another passport
11:08 am
a children who will be in another country from people who have another possible signs of have to apply to french citizenship at age eighteen and some other of those jihadi brights are actually born in france and have french citizenship and it's a case by case basis from a purely legal point of view and also who want to sue so there's also. a question of context what kind of family the children would come back to france if they have one. and what about the children who have been orphaned if their only remaining family is in france many would argue it would be inhumane to deny them a right to their only remaining family to return to them. it again it's a case by case basis the government is well worth out there's a lot majority of the french who do not want these children to come back do not see them as being french see them as being the children of jihadi far those whom they might be mourning and there's an even bigger majority of french people who say
11:09 am
whatever the possible penalty is jihadi broad's should not and former jihadi fighters should not be allowed back in france as eighty two percent of the population is equally spread from left to right so the government has got a hot potato on the us it's a difficult decision to do each it's not popular and there's also the understanding in france that many of the terrorist acts that have been committed in france were by people who are actually watched by the police and any end of the day the police could not determine at what time they would. take action and so these people were well known and still they managed to go out and kill french people that doesn't make you popular to bring potential more of those exactly as they are saying that this is a hot button subject that people are afraid to touch it don't think politicians are also afraid to touch it especially given the fact that it's found itself a victim france has found itself a victim in several terror attacks in recent years and struggles with homegrown
11:10 am
terrorism. of course i mean it is the responsibility of anybody who's in politics to protect the citizens of their own country and they feel that in many cases there's a possibility that you can be humane but not at the expense of having innocent people killed in the future because of those decisions so at the end of the day the greatest fear is that these children will have been radicalized is it fair to say that the dea radicalization and then continued monitoring of these individuals would be a rather heavy burden on french authorities. it's still just that it's a burden it can always be tried there have been lots of the terms that directed radicalization very sophisticated ones attempts to get the country with the help of social media with facebook with google and at the end of the day the results are small so if you decide that you know saving one soul is saving the world which is a good principle to go by you think well it's better to save a few than. saving none at all and i can i can understand and sympathize with
11:11 am
people who think that but politicians are more in the in the business of saving the existing french population right now and elizabeth political journalist thank you for your insights on the story today. with just around the corner and euro skeptic parties dating momentum in the e.u. french president emmanuel macross has outlined his grand vision of a reformed europe is open letter features a number of ambitious plans charlotta risky as more. well this letter has been out lying to citizens of europe and it's been published union this comes as many centrist politicians and fearing that they're not going to do as well in the forthcoming european elections as we see in 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 source of europe as it calls it but he also outlined that there are threats to
11:12 am
europe never since the second world war has europe been so necessary and yet never has europe been in such a danger he sees that danger is being twofold one is 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 his letter this is about people who would be sleepwalking towards a diminished europe he also talks about migration a very sticky issue for many centrists and something that europe has been battling now with for the last fifty years and he describes the need to set out new rules for the borders of the schengen area and also a border force of police that all of europe works towards no community can create
11:13 am
a sense of belonging if it does not have protected territory 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 assignment 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 i propose the creation of a european agency for the protection of. to provide each member states with european experts to protect the election process against cyberattacks manipulation so what's the reaction been well across europe many politicians have slapped my crown on the back for outlining his vision but here in france there's 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
11:14 am
words and not being about the substance this is of course not the first time we've heard some of these ideas from since he took office back in two thousand and seventeen and there's been criticism of social media of the fact that president michel while outlining this grand vision this renascence of europe is really struggling to control many of the things that are happening here in france take the yellow vest protest this is an anti-government movement that's been going on now for more than three months sixteen consecutive saturdays of process that people have described times as being some of the worst in the last fifty years here in france and it's not just the best protest we're seeing protests by students protests by teachers protests by workers from the medical fields all unhappy with the reforms that much corn 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
11:15 am
you then decide to outline what you think europe should be doing in future some suggesting that the president is trying to bite off more than he can chew. a primary school in britain second city birmingham has reportedly caved into pressure and temporarily pulled the plug on of the lessons but after hundreds of parents reportedly kept their children at home in protest parties playboy gives us the details. well the cause of this route is a educational diversity program called no outside isn't it a means 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 moms or two dads and reading books to kids as young as four about the concept of same sex families a program was devised by the deputy head of the school at the center of this route his name's andrew marr fatton actually he's been nominated for the world's best
11:16 am
teacher award take a look at him talking about the program mobley lula another cyclone both of them mostly nearly got some tissues on them but nasa is about teaching to you are different you can still be friends with anybody there's a huge going to. the schools we have to find ways to teach children to talk to count to them. but the majority of the parents at this school are on happy with andrew mohl 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. 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
11:17 am
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 new outsiders lessons in our long term your curriculum plan as this often has already been blocked for religious education because you simply will continue as normal and welcoming. will be the. 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 route started and some of them have been pretty sizeable take a look. at. that
11:18 am
. 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 so this is clearly an issue that's really riled up the parents in this school in the community i reported on the storing from birmingham a couple of weeks ago and this is what the parents had to say to me it's not for the reappeared for the reception kids. to homosexuals you should learn about your to old age not right now because you can easily get your parents did teach you kids no need to stay with boys and boys who doesn't a good thing this was a two hour live 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
11:19 am
not about being muslim that the jewish community the other communities the christian communities they're all have issues around the way things are being done 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 stopped it's more that it's been posed for this task 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. that as well as opposition leader is back home and rowing support after washington warned there'd be trouble if he was arrested on gordo 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 us state department to a defiant venezuelan president. 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 madeira regime and peacefully restore democracy the world is watching its venezuela confronts imperial aggression and moves forward with dignity we will continue to hold high the flag of our free people who raise their voices against imperial interference of venezuela will return to the streets determined to mobilize in search of freedom. of france germany the netherlands and spain greeted quite oh at the airport along with a crowd of journalists a flag waving supporters welcomed him home at a rally in the capital where to urge 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 the economic screws on cuba over havana's proma dura 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. russia's foreign ministry has called bolton statement crazy adding american actions in the region are absolutely inappropriate and guys have takes a look at why washington thinks it can dictate whose time people should be on the united states is exceptional literally thou and 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 don't
11:22 am
now and state supports any number of dictators who violate human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you not 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 munroe doctrine. it's an odd chaotic nineteenth century policy that basically says new 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 turn that 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
11:23 am
all over the world and a zoo l.-a and a bill that legitimizes us meddling that terry quire threat assessment a 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 and 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
11:24 am
iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good and 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
11:25 am
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 shifty forward arden's or the interventions that are carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s. supporting brutal military regimes in countries like el salvador although venezuela
11:26 am
is in the vise 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. for firefighters and several right police have been injured as french rioters fired phil bombs torch scores of cars and sprayed the words police killer on walls vang revenge for the deaths of two teens and a police chase. a resident was also rushed to the hospital after officers responded with tear gas here for home use set up barricades for a third night in the district of the southern city of grenoble worth ortiz insists the seventeen and nineteen year olds were crushed between a bus and a wall during the chase our local media reports writers claim that police
