6:01 pm
saturday morning outworn six pm united states as well just over an hour ago now after two years and nearly three dozen indictments u.s. special counsel robert mueller has finally submitted his long awaited report on alleged involvement russian involvement in the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election the confidential documents is now in the hands of the attorney general ok let's go live to our. strong and a lot of notable figures seriously donald trump along the way tell us about the investigation and what it could mean for the president now. well the report has been submitted the final report from bob mohler the special counsel appointed two years ago to look into allegations that donald trump had colluded with russia
6:02 pm
during the two thousand and sixteen elections that final report has been submitted to the u.s. department of justice now it's been a two year long investigation at this point there have been some indictments but none of them have been related to russia this point we've seen indictments for individuals lying to the f.b.i. failing to register as lobbyists other kinds of results but nothing nothing related to russia now at this point we're hearing from the white house and they are saying quote this is from sarah huckabee sanders on report the white house press secretary on report of the white house saying the next steps are up to attorney general barr and we look forward to the process taking its course the white house has not received or been briefed on the special counsel's report saying that the white house has not been informed of any of the contents of this report but what amount of the report is made public that's alternately up to the attorney general william bar the u.s. attorney general will make that ultimate decision now furthermore we've heard trump
6:03 pm
speaking up and saying that there was no collusion there was no obstruction there was no nothing now it appears that this bob mohler report is a bit of a failure it hasn't turned up any big indictments related to russia collusion it's been two years long but we've already heard democratic party leaders talking about other options they have for keeping the scandal scandalous allegations related to trump and russia alive now adam schiff a democrat in congress recently floated this idea for keeping the story going. i certainly agree that the counterintelligence investigation may be more important than the criminal investigation because it goes to present threat to our national security whether the president or anybody around him are compromised by foreign powers now on many occasions the u.s. media has gotten the public to believe that there was some kind of bombshell or
6:04 pm
smoking gun revelation about to be revealed but at this point we understand that the final report from special counsel bob muller concluding his two year long probe has been submitted to the department of justice now the u.s. attorney general will decide what amount of that report is able to be made public to the people of the united states and release publicly but at the moment it seems the investigation is concluded so people are waiting to see what that report actually contains but at the moment it appears that after two years not many indictments of come down i can imagine a lot of pressure over the weekend on the attorney general to get those details out to the public domain pretty fast arrive for now in new york and i'm open thanks for that. thanks donald trump says he's told the u.s. treasury not to impose any new sanctions on north korea it comes after the north is said to have pulled itself out of the into korean liaison office de facto embassy
6:05 pm
and communication channel four and seoul. north korea informed us this morning that it would who out its staff from the liaison office on instructions from a superior authority and it would through its staff the north said it doesn't mind the south remaining in the office and that it will not to fight on further practical matters in the future our government finds the north decision regrettable and it is hoped that the north returns its staff to the liaison office for normal operation as it was agreed between the two countries. latest setback on the korean peninsula donald trump's apparent attempt at damage limitation comes just a month after talks between the u.s. and north korea collapsed in a summit in vietnam that was due to differences over washington sanctions regime correspondent joining to you know neal earlier to break down the developments. that lee is off as it was only set up you know last year was and it's not widely known just prickett done what it actually does the creation of the setting up of the
6:06 pm
office was this little baby step towards reunification towards closer ties and we know that when it comes to the things happening on the korean peninsula and the baby step is important as you said it was only set up six months ago after that historic visit south korea's president to pyongyang you remember when he was waving hands to all the public and the streets it was really seen as a historic breakthrough. the office was intended for these kind of face to face contacts not on the highest level but in between some sort of officials and diplomats which used to be rare but now it looks like this will have to be put on hold for a while maybe for good we don't know it baby steps but important steps all the same the office that's what it was designed to do what i would end the any indication of the us to why north korea has pulled out its officers that north korea hasn't
6:07 pm
officially announced that this was drawl was happening so we don't really know what the reason is what we do know is that it happened right after the americans decided to punish two chinese companies for doing business with gang and diplomats in beijing have already called this kind of thing unacceptable they believe that these kind of moves should only be made after some sort of decisions by the u.n. so there you have it after the donald trump kim john summit and one noise this was the first action taken by washington against north korea and anyone who is dealing with it and you know all this thaw and all these friendship between donald trump and chairman kim they may end up being absolutely. irrelevant when the u.s. sanctions alarm goes off and i'll tell you what officials in north korea have
6:08 pm
recently said that they aren't feeling that americans were making any steps to loosen their stranglehold when it comes to all this pressure on north korea each will mean if the united states was not interested in improving health career u.s. relations or implementing the june twelfth joint declaration rather it was only trying to produce results for political achievement i will make this clear the forceful stance of the u.s. will make the situation more dangerous i was supreme leadership can clarify its decision soon the u.s. president loves to brag about how great he is making all these moves towards peace on the korean peninsula but as you said in her noyo there was no peace agreement no this old is a failure was no essentially well essentially rise you say but nothing sign there and it appears that kim jong il didn't bend under all this might of donald trump's
6:09 pm
diplomatic skills and now it looks like the dollar from the ministration is at a crossroads they should decide whether they want to continue to play that role as a great peacemaker for korea or they want to go back to the role of that bad cop who keep slapping everyone around the world with sanctions. as your analyst told me that donald trump trying to reduce the negative impact of sanctions against north korea. then i think a couple of weeks we will hear back from the north korean side as to how they would like to proceed further up the ball really resides on the north korean side on how they will respond after hanoi and i think donald trump is going a little bit out a little out of his way to ensure that he doesn't mess things up u.s. north korea talks very delicate fears of this point. time north korea essentially has to get back to the u.s. side wants to go forward and donald trump doesn't want to do that in
6:10 pm
a negative direction by imposing a new whole set of sanctions and that's why he's kind of trying to ensure that at least at the leader to leader level there's good communication and a good relationship because he believes north korea is a top down society and if kim jong un can take that strategic decision which he needs to make it will unlock the door of very positive relationship and positive denuclearization related negotiations. the un human rights council has called for a halt to israeli settlement expansion in the golan heights a day after u.s. president donald trump pledged to recognize the disputed area as part of israel the region was seized from syria back in one thousand sixty seven. after fifty two years it's time for the united states to fully recognize israel's sovereignty over the golan heights which is of critical strategic security importance the state of israel and regional stability. israeli prime minister welcome the move and thank donald trump and surprisingly syria has
6:11 pm
a very different view its foreign ministry said trump's decision changes nothing and the syrian people will do whatever it takes to reclaim the golan heights. russia's foreign ministry also condemned the proposal saying such a move would violate a number of un resolutions germany and france said they're opposed to any unilateral measures to the analysts we spoke to had concerns about tribes proposal and the precedent to be set by recognizing the golan heights as part of israel. it seems that donald trump now is the spokesman for netanyahu and he is intervening in the israeli election and he would like to win this election so i wouldn't be surprised when he meet him in the white house next week mixed with the i think you will give him a huge prison which is that ignition of the israeli salinity or. totally cynically it's breaking all the international rules and international law i mean there isn't the whole one in the world i guess who has any doubts about the
6:12 pm
legal status of the golan heights the golan heights is in occupied territory no doubts about this and here comes an american president then say no matter what the international law says no made towards the woods we recognize it is an israeli city because israel holds it for so many years so why not. if we follow this. really raises a lot of questions about a lot of other occupations all over the world. in reaction to last friday's christ church mosque shootings the first terror attack in new zealand in more than three decades the country's largest bookstore chain is revising what's on it shelves placing a ban on one of its bestsellers it's called twelve rules of life it sold over three million copies worldwide it covers a wide range of topics from discipline and responsibility but also the psychology
6:13 pm
of mass shooters a store defended its decision to take it off the shelves saying that it didn't want what it called extremely disturbing material circulating in the wake of last friday's attack now it may also be connected to this photo showing off jordan peterson wearing a t. shirt with i'm a proud islamophobia printed across it however it seems that some other controversial books don't fall under the same criteria that off hitler's mind can. it's still available on the shelves websites and walty which cold chain is not alone putting a ban on jordan peterson's work cambridge university in the u.k. has revoked its offer of a visiting fellowship to the author as a result of a student backlash saying there's no place for people who don't uphold its principles in saturday's going underground and paid to some calls the decision unprofessional and cowardly well i think it says more about the nature of the universities in general than about free speech in general i mean i don't feel that my decision vin taishan has compromised my free speech ability because i have so
6:14 pm
many platforms on which i can discuss my ideas but i think that it was handled in an unbelievably unprofessional shoddy and cowardly way i mean i was never even notified formally that this invitation occurred i found out about it through the grapevine and i have no will still have no real explanation for why it happened. only able to surmise the reasons i think that our guy was in cambridge in november and i did a very popular talk there and there was lots of student interest and interest out the faculty of divinity as well and i was really looking forward to working with the experts there on biblical issues and i thought it would have been a very good collaboration for everyone given the popularity of the biblical lecture series i did a year ago and i think it's i think it's sad. this is the brussels is given
6:15 pm
britain some breathing space so to reason make and try and get her but he could bring daylight over the line more on that for the break. regulations well long with the invisible hand because when you every put this man together they will try to fix prices so the u.s. . will end up with a market fundamentalist believe. price manipulation even more so the profits because profits are the result of the counting of the accounting is the result of the four big accounting firms that you can pay to have any result. in a world of big partisan. and conspiracy. to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we
6:16 pm
need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. welcome back the european union has rejected teresa mayes request for a three month delay to the e.u. is offering a shorter postponements only on the condition of the british parliament approves the unpopular with drool deal painstakingly negotiated by the prime minister in brussels on friday the european council president sounded upbeat about the extension. really though this development the fate of bridget.
6:17 pm
and social our british friends. as a you are for the worst. told for the best. as you love. cold days last after a seemingly endless night of debate discussion and chopping and changing plans that you council did finally come up with that official proposal for to reason my condo with quite strict terms and conditions and extension of article fifty until the twenty second of may conditional upon her passing a plan through parliament a further extension until the twelfth of april conditional upon the u.k. coming up with some sort of roadmap a plan as to what exactly to do and the possibility of yet another further as yet indefinite extension conditional upon the u.k. participating in european parliamentary elections that is something to resume a has said is a red line for her and would of course be rather pointless given the u.k.
6:18 pm
has decided to leave the european union in the press conference this morning donald tusk was quite clever with his wording he stated that anything is possible that they're hoping for the best and hope dies last we know what that means of course would this proposal leave council has moved the paradigms of this debate right away from the prospect of a no deal hard bricks that further towards the possibility of a deal further extensions or even the possibility of revoking article fifty and the u.k. staying in the european union as donald tusk said to one journalist in that conference he's more pro british than the journalist is nevertheless though the long hours of those debates seemingly did take that's all a little bit on that press conference last night.
6:19 pm
do it be able to also agree stern extension until the. twentieth of april. for folks who. live in the yes. on to the very. i. think two to our poll. and there's still empty you learnt it means to fit a lot of spaces. i believe you officials patience isn't endless though chris said that kicking the can down the road isn't an option because the road in perspective is a short one and this was something echoed by german chancellor angela merkel that. we have for the time being prevented and no deal brax it on the twenty ninth of
6:20 pm
march but these a very short periods of time so britain have to make clear what path that wishes to pursue you so it's official you can master to the e.u. said tim borrow has written to the council accepting their proposal and now it's all eyes away from brussels back to weston's the words the reason may will try to pass our plan and nobody really knows what's going to happen in parliament next week what we can say for sure is that it's shaping up to be one of the most crucial weeks in the house of commons in decades if not in generations i can to reason may get third time lucky and get her deal passed through the house of commons or this time next week will we once again be in some sort of political limbo stay tuned to find out i got the folds of andre walker who's a u.k. based columnist for the new york observer he says to reason may have almost no chance of getting her breaks a deal through parliament. there is no realistic prospect of. the withdrawal deal passing i think everybody knows that if you look at what happened yesterday in
6:21 pm
brussels there was a very short discussion about extending article fifty to allow the law to last to go through to pass a withdrawal agreement that was pretty easy the longer and harder pay for the european council members was to think about what happens if indeed when how withdrawal agreements is defeated next week i think the big difficulty for this actually is not so much on the withdrawal agreements the problem is that parliament cult decides what it wants it's not going to support a no deal you know a genuine legitimate preg said we leave in the w.t. overrules doesn't want that it can't possibly matter in the it would dearly love to and so then it's a good group of graybeards worthy where the i think the public politicians get together is they will try and find out how much of the e.u. can we keep the public in i'm still get away with it at the moment i don't know exactly how much sideways i'm hoping it zero but how you just enough to watch this space. students at king's college london claim they were barred from attending

let people see it that's donald trump's latest stance on releasing the muller report to the public reaction from the experts on this edition. of the politicking i mean holmes sitting in for larry king on wednesday donald trump surprised many by calling for special counsel robert muller's report on the russian probe to be made public so what's behind the president's apparent confidence that he and his family might be vindicated by the report or is this the latest shrewd political move from a president who defies convention let's start there with the leap wryness former deputy assistant secretary of state and former senior advisor and spokes person to hillary clinton he recently wrote a new york times op ed why impeaching trump is worth it people say that the one nine hundred ninety eight impeachment of bill clinton hurt republicans but didn't really he joins me now from washington d.c.
6:29 pm
felipe thank you so much it's great to have you thank you. so let's start as we always do with president trump and his public commentary and tweets on wednesday president trump called for the moeller report to be made public what's your reaction to that. you know who knows what's going on in his head i think sometimes he's trying to maybe out game himself which is a little you know ugly to watch but you know what take it for what it is if he wants the mold report to be public he has that authority to order it be made public so i think maybe you think it's a good idea we have we just saw the house vote on whether you think it's a good idea that we just saw the house vote almost unanimously that yes the american public well how is the house well you know up with you know the house vote was you know this is four hundred twenty two to zero which is absolutely remarkable i mean the house can't even vote four hundred twenty two to zero that it's you know sunday let alone either this agreement and it was only stopped by one person in the

senate lindsey graham i think it's important to see it look i think i don't know what's going to be in the report you don't know it's going to pour i don't think donald trump knows of the report but i can tell you right now that this is what's going to happen the report hits one hundred percent of america is going to be pissed off and disappointed because it is not wise not to be because it's not going to be what anyone thinks it is if you think that it is this magic solution that donald trump will be hauled off and cuffs that's not going to happen if you believe that this is a witch hunt and there's nothing here and it's going to say donald trump has been mistaken and falsely accused that's not going to happen either it's going to make things probably worse rather than better because people are going to lose if you want to call it hope or false belief or just genuine belief that the system is going to work itself out is obviously a very complicated situation and it's not going to so hopefully it sounds like you
