a new documentary reveals supporters of the terrorist group islamic state have infiltrated a great refugee camp where they rule it said with an iron fist will be speaking to the film's producer. good evening thanks for joining us this is r.t. and. a week of critical briggs it decisions continues with the u.k. parliament having now ruled out a no deal scenario and it means that on thursday british m.p.'s will return to westminster to decide whether or not to extend article fifty and seek further negotiations with the new. the good fortune. remains that the u.k. will be without you.
6:02 pm
something else is agreed to the onus is now on every one of us in this house to find a situation seems to be getting trickier and trickier as the bracks a deadline comes closer and closer and it's no underestimation to hold what's going on in a crisis really because clearly there is no common way in terms of how to move forward and is just sixty days away at least the wee things stand tonight now in a series of crucial votes this week yet another one has taken place this evening in a series of votes indeed the house of commons has rejected the idea of leaving the european union without a deal now earlier if you remember the rejected twice the deal that the british prime minister theresa may have put forward in front of them so the way things stand now they don't want to leave with her deals but they also don't want to leave with no deal of bear in mind as strange as this may sound this doesn't really mean
6:03 pm
anything because it could still leave with no deal because time is running out and if there's no alternative found by march twenty ninth they're still going to have to do it because that's the law to put it bluntly and i think it's been made clear that's the idea of playing a round of potentially even returning to teresa mayes deal if nothing less is left on the table could also still take place so it's very very complicated but at least this week what we have going on is last night may's deal was rejected for the second time in a row by quite a considerable margin tonight the house of commons had said no to the possibility of leaving the european union with no deal again what this means really who knows and tomorrow night. thursday night they're going to be voting on the possibility of extending the bronx a deadline of pushing extending article fifty pushing back the deadline of march twenty ninth which would potentially allow the u.k.
6:04 pm
to have more time to get back to figuring out what they're doing the problem there is the european union have made it clear they don't want to renegotiate there's nothing to renegotiate left according to them because they said the deal that they had agreed on is the best one possible that now the case closer than ever to leaving without a deal because they didn't want this one and more importantly what brussels has made clear is they want to see some kind of unity come from london to start with so that westminster goes ahead and actually presents what it is that you know m p's would support in terms of practice it so none of this has happened bracks it is sixteen days away all of the options as to rescind may put it. said herself earlier today remain on the table so how all of this is going to end up playing out is still anybody's guess david coburn
6:05 pm
a member of the european parliament the scotland things the reason may has made a mockery of brics it. i mean the government have made the biggest mess in history could have easily gone through breaks it. could've agreed to to leave on the world trade organization terms it would have been a problem i think the house of commons. do not like until asshole it is worse than being in the european union and that's what she's trying to do she trying to make it look so bad that it will continue on in the european union i think is the end of some of the big parties saying they have the end of the conservative party it's breaking up i think the labor party even in the state the tory party are in at the moment can't seem to me to be able to win an election or even likely to win the election you know there was one so they're doing very poorly i think there's time for new parties to come on the block.

brake said count down on. the cia was behind last month's attack on the north korean embassy in madrid according to the spanish media with the investigation taking unexpected twists local journalist martin roberts reports. in a remarkable report today spain's newspaper of record paice suggested that the u.s. central intelligence agency may have been behind a recent attack on the north korean embassy here in madrid which you can see behind me now two things about this attack a particularly significant the first one is the timing because the attack happened on the twenty second of february or just days before the recent nuclear summit between the united states and north korea in hanoi which as we all know ended inclusively the second significant factor here is that the korean delegation to
6:07 pm
hanoi was headed by none other than kim here who is the currently a creditor accredited ambassador here now. say that police investigators and also investigators from the security services have managed to identify at least two of the ten presumed assailants and say that they have connections to the cia they are also but the cia have denied responsibility but they are that those denials were. not very convincing the police are investigating. this attack they say. these ten assailants. forcibly entered the embassy but they tied up gagged beat and interrogated staff before one of them managed to escape from a second floor window and cry for help a neighbor called the police a last appears to frustrate of the attack however they say once managed to get away in embassy cars taking with them important documents and computer material now if
6:08 pm
these attacks are confirmed they're currently under investigation by the high court . but the responsibility of the cia is confirmed and that had to have devastating implications for diplomatic relationships between the two countries and not least because of international conventions covering the inviolability of diplomatically geishas. we've asked the north korean embassy and the spanish interior ministry for reaction to the news with the letter already replying that it will not comment on an ongoing investigation. the us department of justice told the f.b.i. not to charge hillary clinton with gross negligence over her deleted e-mails back in twenty sixteen months according to a transcript of testimony f.b.i. official lisa page gave to congress an investigation was launched after it was revealed clinton used a private e-mail server to store classified information when she served as secretary of state in july of two thousand and sixteen the probe ended without
6:09 pm
criminal charges relating to the latest revelations president trump accused the barmah area justice department of corruption. just revealed f.b.i. agent lisa page transcripts make the a boom of justice department look exactly like it was a broken and corrupt machine hopefully justice will finally be served much more to come. this week nancy michael flanagan tourney former u.s. congressman michael it's emerged the obama department of justice told the f.b.i. not to charge hillary clinton over those i think is what thirty thousand plus deleted e-mails that surprise you. know for two reasons first justice has the absolute power to do that if they want to there's nothing corrupt about the actual action of that now whether the motivations behind their action be tray or corruption that's another matter and i assure you that if if jeff sessions
6:10 pm
were making the same decision about the trump matter it would be you know screaming from the rooftops of collusion and all sorts of other stuff there'd be prosecutions all across the land over this but when the left does it to the left we smile and look the other way this is right out of the chicago playbook i remember obama's from chicago where i'm from and you cannot control your enemies and your friends and tell you control the organs of to control. the people around you by knowing that the organs of justice are within your complete control and that's why you had guys like eric holder and lynch in that job because they they were there because they were willing to do what they're told to do as opposed to sort of the justice interests of the united states a couple of things that spring to mind one arm of the dunwich from saying hey every clinton has thirty thousand e-mails subpoenaed and suddenly they subsequently didn't how can that be right and secondly what about the accusation that this was a real threat to national security the fact that she was you know conducting
6:11 pm
e-mails outside of an official government. you're exactly correct whether or not you could shrug and say well you know she didn't mean it and choose kind of clumsy and stupid and it just happened that it was outside of government server i will even have that argument with you but as for her destroying thirty thousand e-mails under subpoena this is like nixon destroying the tapes this is this is destroying evidence even though it may be perfectly innocent which i'm not willing to admit but that we clinton claims it is it doesn't that there's a standard i think this is this is the sort of process crime that something like the newer commission would be all over if she weren't high ranking democrat this is this is really really wrong and we really need to pay closer attention to these sorts of things when the interests of justice are flouted in this way does that suggest that the the u.s. legal system is more subjective rather than objective that it depends on who you are. at that level i think that that is true certainly nixon counted
6:12 pm
on his justice department doing his will and when it didn't he fired them and got in all kinds of trouble over it the democrats learned that lesson well and they made sure the people ran the justice department who are interested in protecting the regime rather than protecting the interests of justice and provided the regime is protected and no one talks about it like lisa page did here discovered years later everything is all. speech everything's fine it all will be done well provided the attorney general is willing to take the heat of doing the right thing the right thing for the regime and the press pretty much shrugs when it's a democrat i'm sorry to say that that's true but it is. it seems like no expense is being spared when it comes to the investigation of donald trump's alleged wrongdoings now there's been some rough speculation that robert miller is going to release his report soon but emerged i think just in the last day during the sentencing of paul manifolds that part of the miller investigation still sealed and
6:13 pm
ongoing so the mystery continues about when we will find out and what we'll find out when you think this is actually heading. i really don't know i think that that. his investigation may be winding up soon but i think what they kept away from judge jackson and the man of fort deal was an effort to protect their report as much as it was to protect the investigation and so to have produced for any jackson all of the information that they had would have been to tip his hand on his report and so i think that's part of what the ceiling is about the report if i remember may remind your visitors is not published it's it's given to the justice department world and review it and they'll decide whether it's published or not i think the need to have it exposed will be so great it will be irresistible but it is the decisions of mr barr the new. director. general rather
6:14 pm
than a metaphor for up to miller i'm sorry. michael appreciate your time and your opinions michael something of my guest attorney former u.s. congressman thank you. for. your sixty statement pompei is accused several nations including russia of selling their energy products in order to attack liberty and freedom and that wasn't the only important point made during the speech to an annual energy conference in houston texas on these he's done it for ports. the us is out of the closet finally an official confirmation that it weaponized oil and gas and its foreign policy doctrine we need to continue to build our energy security in the ways of describing we need to roll up our sleeves and compete by facilitating investment all across the world and encouraging partners to buy from us but honestly bad actors but hold up what's with it's about bad acts as well don't you forget america is exceptional it's like no
6:15 pm
other country in the world really you so when they do it it is a canny tactic but when somebody else does it's a felony some nations are using their energy for malign ends and not to promote prosperity in the way we do here in the west. they don't have the values of freedom and liberty of the rule of law that we do and they're using their energy to destroy ours it's all the usual suspect in this bingo of bodies russia is naturally there as it stands accused of plotting to turn poor old europe into a bunch of gas junkies by building a pipeline we don't want our european allies hooked on russian gas to the north of you through project none of the countries implicated in the project see a problem with it if we received russian gas during the cold war not only in the d.d.r. where i live but also in west germany but i don't see why the times and situation today should be so much loss and we can no longer say that russia remains
6:16 pm
a partner but uncle sam knows best russia also apparently invaded ukraine to pillage its energy stock and we all know the story in russia that invaded ukraine to gain access to oil and gas reserves so let me get this straight russia world's number one in proven gas reserves with over fifty thousand billion cubic meters to show for it once it's some of ukraine's three hundred billion and when it comes to the black gold the might. energy empires of denmark and italy are more oil rich than ukraine could it be that someone spends so much time in iraq that now sees the fingerprints of its own plays everywhere now of syrian leader bashar assad also goes on to impose nor to list well this time the syrian president is guilty of wanting to explore some of syrian oil reserves which are well in syria
6:17 pm
and it is cuba of course taking advantage of venezuela by enjoying its oil not the us that outright seized all assets over venezuelan petroleum company and wired them to an account inaccessible to president maduro and remember us is special in every way so when they earn a buck in energy trade that's a force for good don't mix it up put through this here's my point. we're not just exporting american energy we're exporting our commercial value system to our friends and to our partners so trumps well marketed america first policy may need a little clarification it's not about america solving its problems by itself it's about america trying to solve its problems at everyone else's expense pompei out seems to believe that whatever the u.s. does is right and moral and whatever russia china or iran do is this is there really wrong and immoral but you have to remember that the foreign policy team that
6:18 pm
trump has put together this is really an amazingly inept team and they are very bad at what they're doing no one is persuaded by its arguments russia's customers enter into the relationship voluntarily no one is corrupting anybody as they supposedly free trade free market the europeans are appalled by decision to pull out of the nuclear accord with iran they are determined to go ahead with the nord stream to pipeline which the u.s. opposes the no reason not to pipe in or gas from nearby russia rather than shipping it from the united states you know thousands of miles away it makes no sense at all unless you're a u.s. gas company. the terrorist group islamic state has penetrated the refugee camp being greece where it's persecuting religious minorities that's the finding of a soon to be released documentary. it's
6:19 pm
a processing facility that's designed for about two. thousand people but realistically holds around ten thousand. the conditions of the camp pretty bad the rest of the shortest show to soto's of videos of riots happening all the time especially when through just being delivered . you know the need for the thing. i don't know yet. i see my head. there they are going to kill they can steal my dogs every.
6:20 pm
morning. in the morning. on the dog on the public off i thought look on. top of that many times to which i cannot trust to protect us if we get a good. film will be released in may we've spoken to the producer about how they ended up telling this story. you know the main reason we chose more is because there were reports of really quite disastrous things happening there but we never ever expected to find out what we really found out this place was really sort of uncontrollable there were there were tents scattered up all through the mountainsides there was no security there there was almost no control whatsoever and one of the residents actually told us that they were terrified of being
6:21 pm
attacked one man told us on camera that the reason he fled to the middle east was to escape from radical islam when they arrived in europe within days they were experiencing the same thing which was which was really really shocking is because an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness when you're there you know as a filmmaker and. director george and laura and i have spent so much time in different different environments different conditions but this was definitely one of the most difficult and also scary this is you know interpol only recently published published a report saying that there's now a new way of terror threat coming to europe from returning to hardy's the residents told us that the reason isis is operating on the town now because of being defeated in their own countries in the east and in other coming here and it all fits into the narrative of interpol and to everybody else so it's. it's quite depressing overall but it was worth it to bring this truth. neither the police nor the government have responded to requests by the documentary makers on the situation in the camp we've sent our own request as well to the police. french
6:22 pm
president emanuel micron's vision of a reformed european union which he made last week has been met with derision by some of the blocs key players. and the head of germany's biggest party and elemental successor christine democrats are among those rejecting his ideas on these peter all of a looks at what they took exception to. if french president or manual mccrone was hoping that fellow e.u. leaders would support his new vision for the future of europe his european renascence as he called it well he may be a little disappointed austrian chancellor said busty and could says the latest to criticize micron's plan saying it's utopian and comes with too many rules as it to me i believe that many of the suggestions are utopian. plead for europe with as few rules as possible. so what is mccrum put forward that could lead to doesn't like well he's proposed creating a whole load of new e.u.
6:23 pm
agencies including one that would police campaign financing in elections in member states he also wants to see more and more centralized powers for a shingle and border force and has even a plan there for an e.u. minimum wage mark or once in an agency for democracy that's ridiculous i mean we have democracy you should reform the view but he doesn't really want to reform the because it's an intra governmental e.q. built on french design i mean france basically has a vested plymouths there and the e.u. is missing true parliament and the who is missing. french nuclear power and the french seed in the in the security council so for the you to reform we have to talk about everything it's not just the austrian chancellor that is unhappy about this though here in germany the woman widely tipped to take over from angola merkel is chancellor also isn't very king european central isn't european status in the
6:24 pm
community rising debt the european eyes ation of social systems and the minimum wage would be the wrong approach c.d.u. leader and a good outcome kalam did agree with president macro when it came to security but on not a lot else and members of a christian democratic union party are also critical of the plan i'm quite amazed that on. good come the new cd you little skeptical because normally german leaders always follow the french leaders of germany thought that would be part of the german reason of state but apparently it's not anymore than you can see in this the turmoil and the the change in europe the pressure by the people and democratic change her has probably brought the party leader to present position herself slightly more skeptical of new french plans and france is failing and this e.u. in some ways is feeling the timing of the release of micron's plan hasn't helped the french president either it's come out just before european parliamentary elections in which it's expected euro skeptic parties will make pretty decent gains
6:25 pm
and while he hasn't got the support of key allies within the european union dream of a new european renascence may well remain just a dream peter all of our. c.n.n. chief jeff zucker has slammed fox news as a propaganda outlet he also expressed support for the us democratic party's decision to exclude folks from hosting its twenty twenty primary debates. they choose to work at fox and they don't get to hide behind the fact that they're excellent journalists so and because the fact is they work at a place that has done tremendous damage to this country the idea is that of course whoever is in power or and whoever i guess whatever platform is most sympathetic that will be state run or what i buy referred to as perhaps state sympathetic fox and c.n.n.
6:26 pm
actually been in each of the states for quite some time now so i can look back at the spot. more fake news from c.n.n. this time it is spewing from the lips of the clinton news network president his name is jeff zucker it is really state run t.v. it is a pure propaganda machine sucker is a partisan democrat you cannot understand the problem here without understanding. given the world a very distorted perverted view of our country every single day we get the echo chamber effect starting to sell the president's message it's a lot our news anchors don't consult donald trump when something becomes a pattern you don't tell the truth on a daily basis that's a problem at least i'm not responsible for a quarter of a billion dollar lawsuit by smearing a minor they want to press. their intro obsessive coverage it's impossible to watch with this is not personal this is just the truth.
6:27 pm
big man rebuild a list of all the things that you said and do it again and show that you mean it all that's fair and balanced these are the facts as journalists we have to give you the facts we should put c.n.n. six feet you see right there under brown scary tall. we were injected seen as worldview completely. folks can do no room. right and i don't think either one of those is right. propaganda means something that somebody else is saying that you don't agree with their reship be and the object of your truth if they don't like it calls you propaganda it is impossible for a human being to look at any particular story and not have any as you would say bias if you don't know the history of something if you don't know if you have no
6:28 pm
basis and with that basis comes a particular slant perspective there was no such thing as objectivity because objectivity means everybody has to agree on it then the person who dorio is a i think i'm objective and the person who does not particularly like the flavor or the subject of the story does say not only are you not objective but there's a propaganda which brings us right back to the beginning. protests erupted over ninety in the venezuelan capital caracas where supporters of the country's opposition leader clashed with police. in a mess began when people gathered in the western district of the city is this video shows stones were thrown in the police people were just on to the streets by the country's self-proclaimed president one quite. a bit more as one of the people i know it sounds harsh in venezuela that it's bleeding today that is suffering to say
6:29 pm
that we are doing well i know that sounds tough but it is so obvious that we aren't saying it because of the country situation because we know the situation in the country is critical but we know it is critical and have condemned it and we have a proposal to improve it when we say that it is because we are united as one when we say it it is because we're going all out to achieve in his way less freedom we will not tremble when we make those decisions. and as well as president of course madeira says that the majority of the country is calm with electrical power having being restored for a massive nationwide out. he alleges u.s. hackers were behind those blackouts and has appealed for help defending against future interference betty feet can't get full she would have to i want you to know that i have appointed a presidential special investigations commission to look into the cyber attack and i've asked for the participation of international specialists i will ask for the support of the united nations and in addition i will also ask for the already
6:30 pm
active support of russia china iran and cuba countries with a lot of experience defending against cyberattacks we already have the support of these countries if the us government was concerned about the humanitarian situation inside are going as well and then they should begin the process of lifting sanctions at twenty million dollars in aid does not in any way reflect the value of what could be lost by the bill as well and government every day the very notion that the chopper ministration would be concerned about the humanity of people in venezuela is laughable there has been an attempt by the truck administration to manufacture a crisis a crisis that did not exist in this country there was an election that people voted and i mistook him a door was. due to assume his office.
