direct from our studios in moscow this is archie international and sean thomas certainly glad to have you with us. after a two year investigation and almost nonstop media coverage of the so-called russia gate scandal the heavily redacted moeller report has finally been released and according to the attorney general the document reveals there was no collusion between the trump campaign and russia in the two thousand and sixteen presidential election. the special counsel's report states that his quote investigation did not establish that members of the trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the russian government in its election interference activities run ten percent of the report has been blacked out which means it may include yet more revelations the us house judiciary committee has issued
7:02 pm
a subpoena for the full version as the focus now shifts to the possible obstruction of investigation more on that from our senior correspondent gusta. two years america waited for this hoped and prayed it would unmake trump or exonerate him that the new report would end this two year long drama about collusion hacking and conspiracy people would get closure what america got was this page off the redacted page censored into illegibility obviously some of this stuff could pass for modern art and as with aat everyone interprets this report how they want and they're having a good day i'm having a good day q it was called. no collusion no obstruction even it is incomplete or they were going to blow report outlines disturbing evidence that president trump in
7:03 pm
gauged in obstruction of justice and all of his kind of confused so was mueller trump may have been cleared of collusion but obstruction of justice it's kind in the air mueller writes that it's so complicated he couldn't decide whether trump tried to obstruct justice or not the guilty no innocent the conclusion the congress may apply the obstruction laws to the president's corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law specifically mueller found in never been instances where trump potentially tried to obstruct justice and democrats have jumped on it the miller report paints a disturbing picture of a president who has been weaving new web of deceit lies and improper behavior and acting as if the law doesn't apply to him it's
7:04 pm
a very interesting and very disturbing read that does not exonerate this president the whole repercussions for the country of having a president. who lies to the country who misleads the country you urges others to do so a president to. to my reading of the. mother report almost certainly obstructed justice certainly intended and attempted to obstruct justice and if true this alleged trump tantrum is only making it so much sweeter. the president slumped back in his chair and said oh my god this is terrible this is the end of my presidency i'm. you know this report has to trump politically the democrats smell blood have trumps and like blood hounds still mercilessly dog him for obstruction and anyone that gets in the way the messenger
7:05 pm
included they ministration has a new face and any messenger and one with a lot more stature he's the country's attorney general he said half a dozen times no collision no collision no lawyer no legal presentation presents its conclusion six times the attorney general getting out there and getting his narrative his take on it as vigorously as possible because attorney general barr wants to represent our trouble i think he should resign they are calling for bud to resign a traitor a sellout they scream and they want mueller himself the darling just a few months ago to be hauled before congress the mueller reports and did nothing those who hated trump hated him more and vice versa if anything this report is going to america and americans further apart but they go to tell you at least in comply the facts are as happy. as expected there has been plenty of reaction to the release of the russian government says the report provides no
7:06 pm
evidence of election meddling and is a result of internet internal political conflict in the us our guests share their views on the document. they still can't get to a point where the president clued with russia and fact they say quite categorically it did not happen so then why would the president knowing he is innocent abstract put that in as a matter of pure politics as a sop to the democrats who are on the commission twenty five attorneys all of them democrats most of them hillary supporters a large number of them hillary donors and we had to do something in the report to make them happy why did this investigation even be. given i mean was there wrongdoing there was there you know falsified cation of documents to get pfizer warrants there's a lot of embarrassment here we're talking about millions upon millions of dollars of taxpayer dollars of time wasted of things happen for something that legitimately had no basis in fact and any evidence that might have been presented to start this
7:07 pm
smaller investigation all last night we had chuck schumer saying that well how dare william barr you know come out and speak before we get the report what kind of report would this be after that we're going to start hearing about how the redactions are at a way a way to hide the real truth and it's really never going to end we're going to continue to see one thing after another with trump but they went immediately from russia collusion to trump taxes trying financial statements and william bars obstruction so i mean the arguments haven't stopped yet they're not going to stop but we do have what seems to be a very conclusive case of absolutely no collusion most of the attorneys i talked to at the beginning of this said when they start investigations like this they always find something on their target it came back that he was squeaky clean and i think that turns the conversation from what's inside of this investigation to what prompted what was the impetus who paid for this investigation the rule in the united states the constitutional law as you're innocent until proven guilty that right actually was not given our president he was absolutely considered guilty by
7:08 pm
much of the leftist regressive media in the united states and so i don't know exactly how they're going to explain themselves more time the democrats do spend on this the more they're damaging their own party going into elections. libya's u.n. down to government has ended the cooperation with france accusing the country of supporting the rebel forces all relations between the interior ministry and the french side have been halted because of the french government's support of the criminal have to. libya is currently split between the un backed government of national accord and the rival government of the general after who controls the libyan national army earlier this month the general launched an offensive on the capital his troops advanced from broke in the east and have been trying to take over tripoli in the west hundreds have been killed over the past two weeks added to
7:09 pm
this or other militant groups active across the country but mainly in the south and he's tried bin ski reports now on the ground with france. the u.n. backed government in tripoli making some pretty stark allegations against the french government saying they're actually supporting the other side that france has categorically denied that today with an official presidential spokesperson saying no france recognizes the u.n. backed government in tripoli that the president the prime minister. is the only person the president might cornice speaking with including as recently as this monday but of course it's not the first time that france has been accused of putting its own strategic interests in this oil rich country ahead of anything else it's really has made this claim it would be very serious difference for economic or commercial reasons how docked an e.u. initiative to bring peace to libya and would support a party that is fighting as minister of the interior or will not stand by and watch
7:10 pm
what we've seen in recent weeks is an increased escalation since the beginning now the statistics say that more than two hundred people have been killed including civilians and more than nine hundred people have been injured just it's coming from the world health organization but of course this conflict has been raging now for many years going back to two thousand and eleven when countries including france staged an intervention well mark gadhafi has lost legitimacy to lead and he may. sleeve. we came we saw the guy at the top of the world you would get rid of it hey john i knew you would choose freedom we thank god she gave my maybe.
7:11 pm
i'd be ok i could have zero and i did. well one of the big three things that libya faces is the fact that the international community just cards agree on a way forward and what we've heard again oh warnings from the un that governments that if the international community cause i feel those divisions and decide the way forward then history courage repeats itself again and libya could find itself back in those dark days of two thousand and eleven when that conflict that simple rule broke out. job political analyst appear emanuel tomine told us a french policy in libya has been in a state of confusion ever since the two thousand and eleven intervention to overthrow gadhafi. transplanted. to regime change we've united kingdom united states he libya and this disc have been lies to the situation
7:12 pm
totally in the region and no since. we choose a truck to. save state we do different sections varies no reading nation there are lot of tribes fighting each or or countries in their local leave or region out on the globe or try to interfere or foresightful influence the problem is that governments western governments or with school aim to souple democracy and . you know they were. to westernize of countries that. are moderate but actually we are new world aware of reality put it to create much bigger role more. security programs reach islamist and migration crises and actually. receive.
7:13 pm
the russian and north korean leaders are expected to hold their first summit before the end of the month although the exact date and location are yet to be confirmed artie's medina question about more. every bit of information about this meeting is kept top secret details coming from official sources practically zero we know nothing of this date or at least the police where this meeting may happen now as the kremlin spokesman explained safe secrecy by a matter of security and while there is very few official details some media outlets have already started to speculate there are rumors that the current leader of north korea may follow the example set by his father and come to russia using a special train some other media outlets claim the meeting will take place on the end of april which is a rather soon in the city of light of our stock in russia's far east before the russian president's official visit to china the agenda of the talks also on known
7:14 pm
but let me give you the idea of this meeting setting will take place after a rather unsuccessful negotiations between north korea and the u.s. even called for the replacement of the u.s. secretary of state mike brown pale into talks even in the case of possible resumption of dialogue with the u.s. . counterpart would not be but some of the person who is more careful in communicating with us while this came hours after north korea claimed to have tacit a new tactical weapon for the first time after a rather unsuccessful negotiations with donald trump and now this secrecy over the possible meeting with the russian president just leaves everybody wonder what happens next on the way how ducks apparently change donald trump's mind over expelling russian diplomats we bring you the details after a short break stay with us.
7:15 pm
player. i do think the numbers mean something they've met or the us has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crime happens each day. eighty five percent of global wealth you long for the ultra rich eight point six percent of the world market those thirty percent some with one hundred to five hundred three per second per second and that one rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars ai industrial park but don't let the numbers over. the only number you need to remember one one business show you know ford in the one and only boom but.
7:16 pm
is it finally over have we finally reached the expiration date of the russia gate conspiracy hoax probably not by definition conspiracy theorists are never satisfied but a few things are for sure confidence in government has taken a hit and the reputation of the media may never be pretty. well the madness is r t international a midge's of dead ducks and sick children were apparently enough to make it donald trump expelled russian diplomats from the u.s. last year the new york times claims that the move followed the poisoning of former russian double agent assegais screwball and his daughter in the u.k. dom quarter has more. this times article was actually about gina hospital donald trump's new cia director and part of it describes basically a meeting that apparently happened between trump and hospital where they were speaking about how to punish russia for the alleged poisoning of surrogate and
7:17 pm
yulia script last year now the times claims that trump was not too enthusiastic about being really strong against russia he reportedly said that script all the script all situation was within the bounds of espionage spies will be spies but it was apparently only after house showed him pictures from the british government of six children and dead ducks that trump decided to start expelling those diplomats mrs haskell was not the first to use emotional images to people to the president but appearing and with her hard nosed realism proved effective. mr trump fixated on the pictures of the sick children and the dead ducks at the end of the briefing him breeze destroying option while the sunday mirror did actually publish an article back back in march saying that a couple children fed some potentially nova chalk and infected bread to ducks and some pond in london yeah but for now the british health officials are actually saying that none were harmed no children or ducks while the russian embassy in
7:18 pm
london actually sent an official request to the british foreign office asking them to basically confirm or deny that these pictures were sent to washington in the first place because really we don't know there's no evidence to suggest one way or the other and the but they did say that this new information regarding the ducks is certainly surprising like everyone else we learned of the existence of such photos from the new york times piece the information on hospitalized children and dead ducks is surprising the british authorities and media indeed reported that some members of the public including children underwent medical checks as a precautionary measure but none had any signs of poisoning similarly it has never been reported that any ducks or other animals were killed as such we have none of this is true but basically sergei screwball and his daughter yulia were hospitalized back in march twenty eight thousand and just days later british pm theresa may started accusing russia of using
7:19 pm
a nerve agent called no we chalk to attempt to assassinate them basically the us took the ukase word for it and they shortly after rolled out sanctions against russia and expelled sixteen russian diplomats from the country now lattimer putin did call serge a traitor but the kremlin has actually entirely denied these allegations that they had any involvement in the hospitalization and one year later we still don't have concrete evidence to suggest that these accusations were indeed true so when it comes to concrete answers you know it be far be far fetched to say that all the ducks are in a row. a russian startup company is planning to launch mini satellites into the night sky to project advertisements artie's it goes down of comments. from over cars to steampunk style cyborgs the futuristic new art of sight fight is still peers have imagined scores of disturbing futures and in some
7:20 pm
cases fiction turns out to be a grim prophecy in a few years' time the shimmer of stars in the night sky might be out shined by the glow of billboards flashing with ads a russian company starts rocket is looking for clients to be move their advertisement from space yes you heard it right space here is how the russians say it will work with the book so the display itself consists of two hundred small satellites called cube sats which we're going to live to an altitude of nearly five hundred kilometers satellite reflectors you sunlight directing it towards the earth so the cube sats act like pixels that we turn on and off when we need to be entire display moves into orbit showing messages or images of the satellites or equipped with engines which allows us to remove them from it once they've served their time and then have them burn out in the atmosphere. well naturally not everyone shares
7:21 pm
the excitement over such prospects imagine being overwhelmed with ads you can't skip you can't hide with block they're just floored up there and reachable almost like in that episode of the dark side. black mirror when the main character couldn't afford to skip a commercial. another concern what if it's hacked do i have to remind of all those cases when people hacked into billboards to broadcast the not so child friendly content and after all this is not my. romans and gazing at a constellation of bronze but start rockets says that they are the new stars as. the ancient greeks constellations several thousand years ago and based their myths on the stars today are myths of brands we live by them of course space in the near
7:22 pm
future will become a kind of continuation of our living environment and as humanity goes their brands will go back to it's just a matter of time so will inevitably be followed by other companies to place their ads in space perhaps he's got a point there's not much money to be made from stars but the reason marketing the commercial possibilities are endless bonus is going to be popular absolutely it'll be so popular and so many people will want to do it it will drive people crazy and they will then be clamoring for it to be removed because it will be an eyesore people will hate it it will be a product of excess what if it's libelous what if it's scandalous what if it's considered against the religion of an adjoining area of a country can they complain who owns space if i'm somewhere and i look up and there's some obnoxious advertise but first something and i object to it
7:23 pm
you know i haven't a right of objection can you imagine war is being started by this and of course start rocket has yet to prove it can deliver its first space but who knows maybe the first real star wars episode will see will be the battle of the brands. that does it for me i'll be back about twenty thirty seven minutes with my mother look you stay with us. but. you can. be going on for.
7:24 pm
well over the. phone i say assets on their books terry there are going to bonds with a price of one hundred cents on the dollar but don't have a sale value in the market greater than maybe one penny on the dollar so again it's the portrait dorian gray economy all these quote assets on the central bank balance sheets if you added up all of i think the central banks and have something like fifty to fifty five trillion dollars of what they call assets that might be worth mcdonald's hamburger when he ends up that no collateral value i thought they're worthless that's a fact. came here where did you work before you came here when you live. in many us states capital punishment is still practiced convicted prisoners can spend years waiting for
7:25 pm
execution but most of the time the victims' families they are very much in favor of the death penalty there are some people because of what they did they have given up the right to live among us somebody even proven innocent off two years on death row and how many more exonerations is it going to take before we as a society realize that this is not working and. we actually do something about. my body told me that i belong with the poor but my thoughts my mind with that along with the girls. under the surgery thoughts to be of any particular. person's doctor. i was born a male had a sex change when i was thirty years old. i've now been living as a woman for twenty eight years and i fully regret that. my problem should have gone
7:26 pm
away from by now but they hadn't so these surgeries are nothing more than plastic surgery i've had several female to male friends and you look at it and you just go oh god you paid for that it's horrible nobody can change genders is impossible. is delusional it's a mental illness. this is now one of my own flesh of my flesh she shall be called woman pushy was taken out from a. business job where her cocaine were four bucks for the under fifty to everybody use cocaine. cocaine you can smoke it this is worth fifteen thirty. twenty. two this is a bow
7:27 pm
a fifteen people smoke this one figures. you go for these drugs in any city in the united states she was a long as you want to get it about the. make money. and that's what i did every day. hello and welcome to cross talk about all things considered i'm peter lavelle is it finally over have we finally reached the expiration date of the russia gate conspiracy hoax probably by definition conspiracy theorists are never satisfied but
7:28 pm
a few things are for sure confidence in government has taken a hit and the reputation of the media may never be redeemed. stocking russia gate i'm joined by my guest here in moscow dmitry babich he is a political analyst with sputnik international in london we crossed alexander mackerras he is a writer on legal affairs as well as the editor in chief of the duran dot com and in new york we have don de bar he's an anti-war activists and host of the daily radio program all right gentlemen cross talk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate alexander mackerras let me go to you in london happy no collusion day i think we'll make it official holiday all right. but you know you wrote to me earlier this was the biggest fishing expedition that caught no fish at all except for and we'll talk about it with dmitri it's
7:29 pm
still russia's fault that's what the report says i was going to be curious you have a great legal mind can you just sum it up if possible i know you read the report last night go ahead. yes i read the report i phone it relentlessly hostile to donald trump in a way that i actually i found slightly shocking you have the first part of the report in which are and he's team look of follow up every suggestion of contacts between the russians and the donald trump campaign and you get almost a sense of disappointment when they repeatedly come up with nothing and then the second part of the report is an extraordinary academic exercise i should say a flawed academic exercise in my opinion in which outbursts of anger on the part of an innocent man to say don't drum of construed as some sort of attempted obstruction even though there is actually no attempts to impede miller and his team
7:30 pm
in doing anything and none of the threats that donald trump talks about from toronto on the bow sacking will ever actually amount to anything so i mean i found it actually a rather disturbing document but the important point to get to get to understand is that even this extremely aggressive very hostile team of investigators clearly out to find something against donald trump and to create some kind of collusion narrative are in the end unable to do so and they can't even convincingly construct an obstruction narrative on ever demon but it's also clear in the report that russia is culpable to one degree or another they're pretty murky in talking about connections to we keep leaks and then there are the parts.
