nationals make you sent here in moscow it's kevin and we deal with this life 30 minute update just when they 1st then the sex tracking trafficking and child abuse trial of billionaire jeffrey epstein is spilling over into the white house president trump has had to defend his labor secretary alex acosta when acosta was a u.s. attorney in miami he signed off a plea agreement in an earlier case involving epstein which critics say was far too lenient. it's been a great really great the secretary of labor. the rest of it will have to look at we have to look at it very carefully but you're talking about a long time ago and again it was a decision made i think not by him but by a lot of people so we're going to look at it very carefully jeffrey epstein a registered sex offender is accused of trafficking and luring dozens of underage

girls to his mansion if found guilty could face up to 45 years in prison the democratic leadership now is putting pressure on trump and his team over a potential obstruction of justice that. secretary costa must step down as u.s. attorney he engaged in the conscionable agreement with jeffrey abstain kept secret from courageous young victims prevented them from seeking justice this was nailed by the president of the us when he appointed him to the cabinet i am calling on secretary acosta to resign instead of prosecuting a predator and serial sex trafficker of children. a cost to trolls to lead to more feet jeffrey epstein a billionaire caught trafficking underage girls between 20022005 has been arrested yet again this time after horrendous new evidence came to life beginning at least 2002 and continuing until 2000. and 13 is alleged to have dozens of victims
5:03 am
epstein is well connected and he has evaded these charges for years thanks to a deal he made with the costa when he was the u.s. attorney in miami and stead of being charged with sex trafficking and child rape he only pled guilty to a lesser charge of soliciting prostitution from a minor while serving his time epstein had up to 12 hours a day 6 days a week as work release at his downtown office he served only 13 months before then being released on probation during his probation epstein took numerous trips to both the virgin islands and new york city in his private jet and the new evidence has forced acosta to now come forward and defend his decision to give such special treatment to a sexual predator. with the evidence available more than a decade ago federal prosecutors. go to jail register as a sex offender and put the wote on notice that he was a sexual predator now that you haven't seen additional testimonies available the
5:04 am
new prosecution offers an important opportunity to more fully bring him to justice so democrats just heard about this sweetheart deal and are filled with outrage well actually know they've known about it for quite some time this is a cost his confirmation hearing back in 27 seen the lawsuit questions why trump's nominee for labor secretary former miami u.s. attorney you know xander acosta cut a non-prosecution deal with epstein a decade ago rather than pursuing a federal indictment in fact the nature of a cost as punishment if you can really call it that was never secret the department of justice. this has defended the actions of the office in that matter under both president bush and president obama's administrations so why the sudden outrage well according to chuck schumer timing is everything the president needs to answer for his statements he has made about his relationship with mr epstein particularly since president trump appointed mr acosta. to such
5:05 am
a powerful position see the issue is that a trumpet ministration official is now caught up in the outrage around jeffrey epstein and trump indeed does have some skeletons in his closet when it comes to the epstein case epstein visited mara largo however according to the attorney who represents one of epstein's victims trump threw him out after he started making passes at underage girls on the property furthermore trump seems to be the only prominent individual actually cooperating with the investigation into epstein's crimes trump is the only person who picked up the phone and said let's just to give you as much time as you want to we will need to know it was very helpful so that does not put trump in the clear he certainly was familiar with the sexual predator however so was bill clinton the former president actually took 27 different flights on jeffrey epstein's private airplanes some of them without being accompanied by secret service and there are rumors circulating that there were underage girls on
5:06 am
the plane clinton had his secret service with him and many times he did not almost every time that clinton's name is on the pilot logs there are underage girls there are initials and there are names of many many girls on that. private plane but clinton is just background noise right now epstein fits in with the anti trump chorus from mainstream media the federal sex trafficking case against donald trump old friend jeffrey epstein times to both the president and notably his labor secretary alex our costume the man who cut that deal with him that was his job then now that labor secretary he's got supporters a report of this administration so perhaps the victims in this case should be happy that donald trump was elected after all until trump's name was brought in and attached to the case there seemed to be far less interest an outrage about epstein's atrocious crimes from certain voices. r t new york.
5:07 am
islamic state terrorists who took part in the 2015 paris terror attacks as received 500 euros compensation for a legal terms of detention use in a prison cell under permanent surveillance apparently something that contradicts european human rights laws that are to shall or do bensky explains more. solo. an infamous name and the last remaining member of a group behind the worst terror attack in french history thank you. just months later 32 people were killed in cold water native bombings on brussels
5:08 am
major transport ups is now serving a 20 year prison sentence yet it's now emerged this self confessed to harvest has found himself on the right side of the legal system of the french state was forced to pay him 500 euros why well do you bring abdul salaams incarceration here in france he was subjected to norm's stop surveillance back in 2016 then justice minister explained why that decision was taken. made a ministerial order authorizing video surveillance 24 hours a day and on the basis of this decree which i took after consultation with the national commission on informatics and liberty i took an individual decision on mr disallowed to be put into video surveillance even the unions supported the government's position and why that scope of surveillance was justified. in this case video surveillance was an effective means of ensuring that the individual did no harm himself and if needed to stand trial for what he did but does lambs
5:09 am
continue to challenge it and they won in 2017 these administrative court agree that his detention conditions were illegal but this information has only just come to light and it's causing outrage. the french judiciary has condemned the state to pay 500 euros to a terrorist who caused the deaths of more than 130 people and left 400 injured on the 13th of november 25th scene this is a disgrace i'm appalled by the court order to pay $500.00 euros to so obviously this legal outrage must be reviewed urgently this french stay owes nothing to islamist barbarians so what do people here in paris make of this case. honestly i don't think that 500 euros is a lot and i also agree with the human rights side of it but he didn't respect the human rights of the people either i believe that when you are. creating crime that
5:10 am
is so horrific that perhaps you should just lose all of your entailments and a privilege is known for as it was about absolutely not that's not normal he committed a crime and now we have to pay him it's not normal so really amazing that the french government are to be dismissed. fine but if we are looking to do a side of the justice we've got some rules we've got some lows and we need to respect general. is no good at all because he's still a terrorist it should be the other way he should be charging condemned some very diverse opinions on a subject that many people were simply shocked by it seems though that abd islam has no intention of taking the money so far he's refused it so what do you can ski aussie paris. i guess about the rights the wrongs of this case and as it turns out
5:11 am
it seems it's not work. the issue around how we was treated by the french authorities is an important issue regardless of one's background or regardless of one's you know situation in terms of what they've been accused of the rule of law applies equally to the same case in belgium actually where they receive compensation because they are in m.r. a restricted area within prison and they get one euro per day i mean this is ridiculous it's not the fact that they're received one euro it's the fact that the court goes as far as the same time on this issue i mean in middle eastern countries there is none of that well the reality is somewhat different the people who carried out those a terrorist attacks in paris and in brussels some of them have got very serious sentences they're being given life sentences of 20 plus years you know we look here in the u.k. there's been many terror plots that have been foiled and the people involved have been given long custodial sentences i think that the sentences should be the real
5:12 am
sentences that the judge pronounces if it is 2030 years life it is a life it is 30 years or 20 years people in the street. should not get emotional about this but they don't understand the system they have the impression that the victims are penalized while the justice system defense criminals but you've got to take your own emotion out of it and said that the law applies equally to every single citizen and if the authorities the police are not above the law in western societies and if they've done any particular action which is brought their authority into disrepute then there should be consequences and that's what the judge awarded damages to this individual. recall cases a court in italy is handed life sentences to 24 people including high profile officials involved in something called operation condor or that was a campaign of political repression by u.s. dictatorships way back in the seventy's and eighty's in 6 south american countries
5:13 am
back up today 23 of the 24 were sentenced in absentia here the case was initially opened 2 decades ago by families of the victims. kidnappings torture tens of thousands killed including through being thrown out of flying planes the death flights with a cruel dose of irony the operation was also given the ariel name conduct for over a decade the dictatorships of 6 latin american states were cleansing their left leaning opposition through repression and state terror now their victims have some
5:14 am
closure but only some the executers of operation condor couldn't have excelled the way they did without help we have followed events in argentina closely we wish the new government will wish it will succeed we will do what we can to help it succeed where were you on a difficult period it is a curious to when political criminal and terrorist activities tend to move without any clear separation when the standard must establish with auriti in hindsight as stablish authority they did oh by all means quite literally all the 6 nations became staunch allies of the us for which the political purges in latin america became a convenient way to scorch communist idea from its backyard outpost of pinochet now a household name almost synonymous with tyranny enjoyed financial support from washington at least through his chief of intelligence some declassified documents
5:15 am
referred to operation condo as a legitimate counterterrorism action moreover and rick kissinger then secretary of state was briefed on the murder operations of. operation corndog in august 1976 the operation would last until 1989 and for all those years the cia chose not to step in to prevent the brutal violence in fact the u.s. kept its finger on the pulse of operation condor or aiding at times with strategic planning. brazil argentina chile bolivia paraguayan year ago i make up the nets they keep in touch with one another through a u.s. communication installation in the panama canal zone which covers all of latin america obviously this is the condo network which all of us have heard about over the last few years this cia did such a great job ensuring control of latin america through operation condo that in 1977
5:16 am
just 2 years into its official phase europe took notes representatives of west german french and british intelligence services had visited the condo organization secretary it's important harry's during the month of september $977.00 in order to discuss methods for establishment of an anti subversion organization simulate a condo due to their view that the terrorists aversive threats had reached such dangerous levels in europe kissinger was well aware the cia knew all about this state department knew all about this and in fact the united states helped facilitate communications between the 6 countries that were involved in this people are getting some small measure of justice and it's much too late many of the perpetrators have already died you have to realize this was a vast operation thousands and thousands of people involved 7 governments involved at least you have to also remember that you have the intelligence services of
5:17 am
britain france and west germany also collaborating with these governments in south america so this was that global operation these were his silence critics silence reformers and this is her rendition period in history in terms of actual justice being met it out here on earth that's probably not going to happen in most cases back up to date so it's may day 70 mosco time without international make heaven knowing coming out why american diabetics. head to canada by the bus load for affordable medication by their predicament after this break. why is it when you hear the word diversity it's at the expense of unity then there
5:18 am
is inclusion but only inclusion when you agree with a certain political and world view and of course we can forget about identity politics if you just agree when you're called a dog whistle i did to get here. and you try and be professional you try and leave it outside the door you try and put it in a comma compartment. and so you can forget about it but little by little. these little whispers come and for me it was actually putting some ice into my wife's glass of gin and tonic and the science on the sound i screamed to the glass reminded me of how we do school in bali which was with bags of supermarkets our ice . cream.
5:19 am
i get executives post may day next to global conference of media freedom is underway in london co-hosted by the u.k. kind of the bird. left at the party not invited to sell as well as the cross this with bully boy crew in the british capital pauly a major go through for the media world how much of a small business fraud. pretty big around 60 ministers a 1000 journalists esteemed members of civil society and academics are all set to attend this in normal girl conference on global media freedoms hosted by the u.k. and the canadian governments here in london there's going to be a special guest a mile clooney the international human rights lawyer also george clooney is wife she is the british britain special envoy on media freedom at this event
5:20 am
guess who is not a special guest at the event today here i am billy no mates all over again i have to say because this has happened before i will explain but myself and my fellow r.t. journalists also journalists from sputnik have all been banned from attending today ironically the global conference on media freedoms we applied to attend just like everybody else well in advance we've got to their credit station e-mailed back saying it was pretty stock reply actually it said unfortunately where our naval to approve your application to a credit as media perhaps that should have been a clue we thought perhaps there's no space it seemed like a pretty standard response that we got bought behind our backs news but other news outlets were getting a very different message from the foreign office yesterday so the day just before
5:21 am
the conference. a variety of media outlets here in the u.k. started putting out a story saying that r.t. had been banned r.t. and sputnik and they got a quote from the foreign office explaining why we've been take a lesson. we have not accredited our t.v. or sputnik because of their active role in spreading disinformation while it's not possible to accommodate all requests for accreditation journalists from across the world's media are attending the conference including from russia. now the russian government isn't very impressed with this lack of hospitality to say the least the russian embassy in london has said that it written to the foreign office to express its expressed resolute disagreement with this and russia's foreign ministry spokesperson maria is a horrible also weighed in take
5:22 am
a listen to what she had to say about. the organizers demonstrated there drink tensions and attitude to media freedom return and event into the means of achieving the brittany's to political and we believe other countries and responsible journalists will draw their appropriate conclusions and we hope that human drives n.g.o.s and drove an international agencies will no child away from states in their position. and r.t. itself as a news organization has put out a statement about the whole us take a lesson. it takes a particular brand of hypocrisy to advocate for freedom of press well banning inconvenient voices and slandering alternative media suddenly the world has learned to expect just that from the u.k. foreign office. i have to say this isn't the 1st time this has happened to me personally and i've worked with r.t.
5:23 am
for coming on to 6 years now and we. i have been sidelined from big events like this before i wasn't allowed into emanuel micron's election headquarters back in 2017 and his party issued a similar excuse at the time citing. talk about to send some ation m. propaganda. a note to make actually which is rather curious about today's event is that all the russian news channels state owned news channels that broadcast in russia colleagues of ours here have been allowed in it's just r t and sputnik the english language russian channels that haven't been allowed in so while they all discuss media freedoms inside that i will be outside as they say in britain poli stiff upper lip and hold your head up probably boy because they're in london and you. know next people are diabetes the americans say they're forced to
5:24 am
go to canada in order to get affordable insulin a group spoke 50 those on a bus trip to buy the medication that's more than 10 times less expensive than over the border in the us we spoke with the organizer to get a bit more. so this is when i just went just in minneapolis minnesota and the retail price that violet's $340.00 when i went to london ontario to pick it up at the wal-mart pharmacy there. in u.s. dollars the retail price was $26.00 so there is a huge price discrepancy and so for so many americans they just simply can't afford it i have never had to personally ration insulin but from the high cost of insulin i have had to go into debt because of it i've had to put it on credit cards i've had to reach out to family members to help me pay for it because it has gotten too expensive that i can't. because that astronomical cause but i also realize there
5:25 am
are people that are not as fortunate as me and they don't have family members they can reach out to that can help bail them out yes a real bond is it will according to the u.s. diabetes association 30000000 americans suffer from the illness well more than 7000000 rely on insulin day to day it remains the main treatment for diabetics to control the glucose levels and it was 1st introduced as quote interesting history this interim so back in 1921 but then the post was sold for just a dollar the whole point of that was the hope of making treatment available to anyone who needed it but the changes you can see over my shoulder at no cost more than $300.00 per one capsule in the u.s. prices almost double between 2012 and 16 forcing some to russian their medication and i should bow to him next from the coal smiths hole from the charity one international she's telling us about the tragic consequence is when you have to limit the dose like. the price is raised over 200 percent in the past 20 years
5:26 am
and there's just no reason why it's increasing to the point where people just they're dying because they can't afford their insulin my family has paid the ultimate price of the pharmaceutical companies price gouging their patients in 2017 my 26 year old son passed away. from diabetic ketoacidosis from rationing his insulin and he was right. sing it because he can afford it the monthly price for his insulin and diabetic supplies was $1300.00 is going to such an extreme that people are resorting to some really drastic measures to be able to get affordable insulin and people are traveling outside of the united states and going to other countries to purchase it where it's actually affordable you know john dombrowski for pain management center spoke to say things that suffering elations are limiting competition in the medical industry that. sometimes it happens the united states
5:27 am
the f.d.a. requires pharmaceutical industry to have a certain standard of care and standards are great but sometimes small businesses cannot enter that market because it's such a barrier by making a 1000 dollars or $3000.00 a year in a product when i as a company want to get into that maybe we need 6 companies maybe you need a company and the way that you do that is again make sure there's a less of a barrier to make this product if you use competition then me as a patient i'm empowered to understand how much is this medication cost is this product equally as good why would maybe you know take a lesser expensive medication than the other. i also have attorney it's a busy news day 27 here are most of your change in the world a reminder you get all the stories as they happen if you download our up or check it out. now this wednesday afternoon just about here moskos cover now in saying thanks ever so much for watching and have a great rest of the day. the

5:29 am
a condition that for americans don't want to cop to it's hard for but the fact is now you've got 150000000 more people america. this is a story about one true stray bullets kills a young girl in the streets. what happens to her family and daughters in florida you know the mother daughter is buried in this i'm going to every meeting this is with your head what happens to the community the public was screaming for a scapegoat the police needed a scapegoat so why not choose a 19 year old black kid with a criminal record who better to pin this on. then him and what happens in court the . shock shock. you feel. we don't know this is true. and of this trial
5:30 am
unfortunately you. will still not know chill just. below and welcome to crossfire we're all things are considered i'm peter lavelle so when you hear the word diversity it's at the expense of unity then there is inclusion but only inclusion when you agree with a certain political thought and world view and of course we can forget about identity politics if you disagree then you're called a dog whistle how did we get here.
