6:00 pm
president trump meets with his ukrainian counterpart in new york as the fallout from a phone call they had. gross. transcript of that conversation has now been released to chose from his ukrainian counterpart to investigate the business dealings of rival presidential candidate joe biden and his son the u.s. president is on the defensive. now that's what they're choosing me of but i didn't do it i didn't. the british prime minister tells m.p.'s to either kick out his government or let him get on with bricks it's. the supreme court ruled.
6:01 pm
they didn't hold back. this government stands in the shade. please let me if you like to go. so we was a coup. thanks for joining us in our teens and. welcome to the program. i was one of the most closely watched fringe meetings at the un general assembly the us and ukrainian presidents faced reporters about a now infamous phone call that's led to an impeachment inquiry being launched against donald trump the us president meanwhile is claiming that it was not him but rather his rivals who threatened ukraine. they wanted to force the new president to do things that they wanted under the form of political threat they threatened him
6:02 pm
if he didn't do things now that's what they're choosing me of but i didn't do it i didn't threaten anybody trump's rival democrats claim the president instead abused his powers by attempting to get the ukrainian leader to help investigate a potential election rival funs. you. i think. cold he was normal we spoke about many. and the so i think you read it is that nobody bullshit bullshit me yes it was no great you know there was no pressure or you have to do it is one of the call but you know that if you could ask the question and i appreciate the attention i think it is if you look at what he did it is ok we're his son he goes to china he walks away with a video of their dollars he goes to you great he walks away with $50000.00
6:03 pm
a month and a lot of money in addition to that and the whole thing with the prosecutor you pray that he's ok this isn't like maybe he did it maybe he is he's not a way of doing it is now the contents of that conversation they were describing is now fully public declassified by order of the president and if you look at this brief conversation held for 3 minutes on july 25th it's pretty clear there was a mention of joe biden his son hunter biden and a prosecutor in ukraine this is from the transcript that was just released there's a lot of talk about boy he didn't son the body didn't stop the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about it so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great i will have mr giuliani give you a coup and i move so you're going to have attorney general who and we will get to the bottom of it i'm sure you will figure it out but in this in this transcript
6:04 pm
there is no mention of the $400000000.00 of military aid in the initial allegations from the democrats it was alleged the trumpet threatened to withdraw aid from ukraine unless they gave him information on joe biden that simply is not in this transcript however the democrats have moved ahead with their impeachment inquiry and at this point we are hearing some very low. how denunciations a prompt from the democratic party like any mafia boss the president didn't need to say that's a nice country you have it be a shame if something happened to it because that was clear from the conversation there is no quid pro quo necessary to betray your country or your oath of office even though many read this as a quid pro quo i'm not concerned whether it is a quid pro quo or not. president trump abused the powers of his office and b. trade the public trust. for personal political gain he hadn't seen it
6:05 pm
so of his come from the media but that. is. the fact is that the president of the united states. in breach of his constitutional responsibility as a foreign government to help him in his political campaign well the u.s. constitution lays out a procedure for removing the president by impeachment so essentially you've got 2 houses of the u.s. congress the 1st house being the house of representatives they would be the house that decides to go ahead with impeachment at this point we've got 6 committees investigating trump it would be the judiciary committee they would be the ones to ultimately bring impeachment articles against donald trump and if they were to then vote to begin impeachment proceedings it would be then the u.s. senate that would convene an impeachment trial and then vote on whether or not to remove trump from office now in u.s. history only 2 presidents have been impeached bill clinton was impeached as was
6:06 pm
andrew johnson and both of those u.s. presidents remained in office they were not removed from office the impeachment trial happened and the senate voted to keep them in office now richard nixon was facing an impeachment inquiry leading to an impeachment trial he resigned ahead of time so we have not had any president in u.s. history ever removed through the impeachment route not all democrats are immediately jumping on to the idea of impeachment gabbert has spoken up and said she doesn't support the idea of impeaching trump she says it would hurt the democratic party in the country in the long term and divide the country so tell us again and she she has spoken out but many democrats seem to be excited about the potential of beginning an impeachment proceeding against donald trump it's important to note however that at this point the senate. is controlled by republicans and it's very likely that if impeachment proceedings began mitch mcconnell who is the senate majority leader he could simply have the senate vote
6:07 pm
not to carry out an impeachment trial so a lot remains in question about what comes next but donald trump and the ukraine leader and the democrats have a very different interpretation of the conversation that we now have the full transcript of the level. of the dyna look out of this executive director paul thanks for coming on good to have in the program today so the transcripts finally out probably didn't contain what the democrats what nancy pelosi expected it to. what's next for the process of impeachment kambiz still go ahead is this is this the evidence of a legal claim that they were often. well they must be pretty disappointed having looked at the transcript because the so-called whistleblower said there was an explicit quid pro quo president trump said hey if you want the 400000000 you've got to look in the vide and biden son that is not the case that was not the case in the transcript of the of the topper station so they're left with a smoking gun that's more like a squirt gun and that's a big problem for them because if they did proceed with impeachment what are they
6:08 pm
going to impeach him for if having a phone call with a foreign leader and discussing something that you would think would be of general interest which is the only thing he asked wednesday to do was to look into meddling in the us campaign he mentioned crowd strike the democrat national committee a company that managed their server and whether the information was there presumably both parties would like to know would like to get ahold of that server and find out exactly what happened to the server that's the only thing he asked specifically for help with and let's not forget also he did not mention money at all it name didn't even mention that the us funds ukraine he did say we spent a lot of time on ukraine and did of course there is a congressional committees and are going to look into these allegations the whistleblower whoever he or she may be may well speak before the committee as well do you think there's a chance we might find out directly from the whistleblower when they do get something we don't already know what and what 'd impact could that have. well
6:09 pm
anything is possible but let's not forget that the whistleblower went through called whistleblower went through the procedures he went to inspector general intelligence committee intelligence committee inspector general sent it to the department of justice the criminal division of the department of justice looked at the complainant said there is nothing actionable here so they went to the entire process and found nothing was there they also found that the so-called was a blower has a political motivation so in terms of what goes next you know it's already gone through the process and been turned down. and president trump says there's nothing in common a thing in the will solo's report why then do you think he was reluctant to do to turn it over to congress when it was 1st requested why wait this long to release something which effectively will from his point of view at least prove his innocence well it's extraordinary for the private phone call of a president and a born leader to be released the public the president has broad authority when it
6:10 pm
comes to foreign affairs it makes it very difficult for a future for leaders and saw scandal with the president if he if you think he or she thinks that that might be released to the public so it's a real problem but let's not forget you know this whole thing is about supposedly from saying hey we give you a lot of money you need to investigate violence it didn't come out that way but you know in fact in march 8th 2018 the u.s. senate sent a letter to the ukrainian prosecutor general saying if you don't investigate trump there's going to be trouble so there's actually a record of the senate explicitly mentioning u.s. aid and threatening that aid if they don't investigate from so this is another example of the democratic using trump of what they have actually been doing a trump and his 1st conference at the u.n. general assembly described this whole case as a hoax on a witch hunt is that something you'd agree with and also what impact is this likely to have on the 2020 lection or is it too early to say right now. well the democrats
6:11 pm
want to get a shop and selves in the head as they did with wade through the years of russia gate a new poll came out from quinnipiac university showing that 50 percent 7 percent 57 percent of americans do not want to have an impeachment 95 percent of republicans do not want to have an and that's before the transcript came out showing that the smoking gun was a scorecard so i would imagine that even more americans now having seen this far will not want to have and they are going to the will of the american people and they're really again as i say shooting themselves in the foot all right daniel mcadams executive director of the ron paul is a suit thanks for your time here on r.t. today. over geas and heckling from m.p.'s the under siege british prime minister is facing the wrath of a furious house of commons a softer the supreme court ruled his swoop to suspend parliament was unlawful despite suffering defeat off the defeat and 20 in peace to force an election they
6:12 pm
rejected twice for his children and blamed m.p.'s for trying to derail bricks it. the good people of this country can see perfectly clearly what is going on they know that parliament has gone to all of its policies to respect the referendum the people at home know this parliament will keep delaying it will keep sabotaging the negotiations because they don't want a deal this is because the truth is good members opposite are living in a fantasy world i want breaks it down and people want us out on october 31st yet pays scrambled back to work after the controversial suspension of parliament was nearing does void bother you case closed on tuesday rule makers say the floor a geisha was a cynical attempt by boris johnson to stop some having a say on preventing britain sure crashing out of the e.u. without a deal on october 31st. session back was never going to be an easy ride furious
6:13 pm
opposition m.p.'s are venting at the ruling conservatives but the government's chief legal advisor the man who had told forest child some of these pensions was good to go see. a fellow that knew any other course i heard he's our disgrace we now have very wide number of this house. race against levy to denying the electorate the charge of having. how this matter should be resolved this parliament is very dead yet really he was hoping that parliament would still be probed until the middle of october but as it was we saw that ruling yesterday by the u.k.'s supreme court unanimously coming to the conclusion that that decision to provoke parliament by the government wasn't lawful and in fact proving that as far as they were concerned it never happened there was no such thing that had no legal basis and so m.p.'s were able to once more take their seats in the house on this day where we saw those
6:14 pm
very far east scenes not just like the ones we saw from the attire. general but also from other m.p.'s who while so was delighted to be back in the house also it's a case how the government these government stands in shame tendering illegal advice to our monarch and not even able to uphold our most basic the most important of principles abiding by the rule of law yes the speaker we had notice of the intention to prove with your assistance we could have entertained motions against seats or even a motion of no confidence so it was a coup wasn't it government yes she did not need if you like to go prioritization i shut down the. time i sat down her caretaker soundly i would lie like you. do you like this either leader like they describe when i start to talk about.
6:15 pm
it i guess right now the government say that while they disagree with that ruling parliament had to say it once more they will abide by it and they're now trying to table the motion calling for a general election we've already seen the opposition in the house of commons rejecting that twice before they say that boris johnson's attempts to try to get an election are just a distraction process and what they want to do is to stop and no deal brigs it from taking place also those opposition figures calling on that boris johnson to stand down it's not likely that he will but with those with that deadline of october 31st looming and parliament saying that he must extend article 50 and call for an extension to the brogues a deadline it's really unclear to see what's going to happen next. the f.b.i. has arrested an army soldier who allegedly planned to bomb a news network and assassinate a presidential candidate to arrest those also uncovered
6:16 pm
a wider plot for the man to join a notorious ukrainian ultranationalist group fighting in eastern ukraine. and is that all called reports he's far from the only american joining the ranks of ukrainian neo nazis planning a terror attack preparing to murder and tea for members this isn't a movie plot it's the allegations that recently landed jarrett william smith in an f.b.i. cell and authorities say his plans were only confined to the us of a smith had spoken about his desire to travel to ukraine to fight with the ukraine based violent far right paramilitary group as of battalion why ukraine well it's a hotbed for the far right and white supremacy which have a big influence in the country's military the as all battalion for example its insignia features 2 nazi era symbols still widely used by neo nazi groups.
6:17 pm
smith was dead set on joining up with thousands of and it's not just him reports say some of his collaborators were already fighting with another neo nazi group called right sector it seems kiev has a poll for americans on the far right remember charlottesville. for members of a far right group involved in that riot were arrested and lo and behold they too had a fixation on the battalion they even traveled to europe and met one of the battalions leaders with so many neo nazis in the us you would think washington would unambiguously oppose their growth but that's just not the case at 1st in 2015 congress unanimously voted against military aid to the neo nazi as of battalion i
6:18 pm
am grateful that the house of representatives unanimously. passed my amendments last night to ensure that our military does not train members of the repulsive neo nazi azoff but talian but just one year later washington changed its mind and all of the sudden pictures began surfacing on social media of as of and us soldiers striking poses together and makes you wonder if the us even thinks nazi ideology is a threat let alone something negative frankly you now are beating screens for human rights violations not for ideology neo nazis you know can join the us army to looks like the us army will take anyone these days as long as they hate the people washington wants them to hate in this case given the a sieve and a russian. dominated united states floor at least a decade if not more it isn't surprising that there would be people who were eager
6:19 pm
to join the military who. are crazy with. russia as i look wrongly is that when you have a volunteer. military as as the us does it does attract. not necessarily very good people it also attracts people who subscribe to dangerous etiology there should be a bidding process to prevent people who have these dangerous goes however. probably the us military simply doesn't have the vetting process there so eager to get as many recruits as possible that they wave almost everyone in nationalist groups in ukraine i've also been indoctrinating children with extreme views is some footage filmed by artie's video agency ruptly.
6:20 pm
