inquiry report but the around the clock news coverage is falling flat with some audiences artie's taylor has been sharing her emotions and commentary when it comes to impeachment fatigue. talk to what a year it's been and hasn't felt like it's just been dragging on and everyone i speak to says the same thing that that confused and anxious for the democrats to stress because they've been struggling to find a single candidate who can take on trump and 2020 and the best they've come up with is a man who's made a was when he posed in a short sleeved button down more than 40 years ago then you've got the republicans that just riddled with anxiety they keep checks in a nutshell not phone just praying that lead to hasn't gone on a twitter wrong page all put economy in a choke hold and then of course that the fending off attacks from the democrats left right and center you always told me doc it's bad to keep things bottled up inside and ready politicians that just like os they need that stress relief to. so
9:03 pm
the people on the hell have signed up to a group therapy session and it's a classic safe space where everyone supports one another and to see going over old ground no other president has betrayed his office like this because the president got caught the president in fact tried to trade a political favor for official government resources now this anti corruption president who cares so much about rooting out corruption and ukraine putin's primary objectives within the united states is to so as to foment unrest for their nation would you agree with me that r.t.d. is putin's propaganda machine here in the united states i would agree with honestly it's been a huge and that down it's a bit like you and me brady i mean i come every week hope he'll kill me even though i know it's hopeless but we're in so deep we just have to keep going but at least i have the decency to east pretend i'm interested in what you have to say.
9:04 pm
even the democrats who have the most to gain from the session a suffering from what i've diagnosed as impeachment i just think we're going down this road keep spending more time hundreds of years of history no one has ever been convicted of impeachment and it's not just the people who've been sitting through the hearings that are bored it's the ordinary voter to master mr morris and i have some bad news for you t.v. ratings are way down way down i don't hold it personally i don't think it's you guys. or whatever drug deal the democrats are cooking up here on the. american
9:05 pm
people are buying you might not remember how it will start to dr joe biden was just being helpful father lending a hand in getting hunter setup in a good job been trumped he was just a concerned president worried that hunter biden sitting on a board of a need to ukrainian gas company while his father was the country's point man was a conflict of interest so best saying he nudged the ukrainian president to look into the matter may be used as a bargaining chip that $400000000.00 of aid the us have promised which reminds me even ukraine's tired of this whole impeachment saga i think everybody really is the . reason we're here although i work on the street we have all the independence we have all the rovers and grace that is right i've got bad news it looks like we might be stuck in this therapy session for a while because to put it simply even if the house of representatives dominated by
9:06 pm
the democrats votes to endorse trump's impeachment it still has to pass the upper house the senate and there are rumors that the republicans won't just unanimously vote to quickly dismiss the charges but what actually get embroiled in a long trial a trial that could be 6 days a week every week. until an agreement is reached the only person who's apparently not too down in the doldrums about that is trump don't know why one of the 1st orders because frankly i want to throw you know i can think i could have it you want to try out every one 0 i wouldn't. you know one they should never ever impeach them i think about with this the more i realize just like our sessions it's it's a whole lot of money a whole lot of time and it leaves a whole lot of nowhere. meanwhile u.s. democratic presidential hopeful to govern has been the butt of some cutting remarks
9:07 pm
from the new york times for her choice of clothing the paper reports that her white suits are more cult leader than haute couture. it has been as asians have refrained from in the center the white suits are of somewhat converts of righteousness also cult leaders. only near liberals and the my wife susan. that is the most ridiculous pose debate article of. newspapers only has many of the content that you.
9:08 pm
tulsi she challenges the democratic establishment she is not supportive of regime change and less war all the money the military is spending often needlessly so she's somebody that really calls that out and i think the democratic establishment you know really is like how dare she do that and they come after her so and they come after her in ways as frivolous as this you know. to say that like her white pantsuit makes her sort of like you know a cult leader and she's on the fringe and a complete radical and that's really unfair to her it's an unfair characterization . germany wants to double down on catching pedophiles online but a new tactic to infiltrate the so-called dark web we'll see it enter some ethically suspect territory by creating fake child pornography. investigators will be able to
9:09 pm
use computer generated images in the future if crimes cannot be detected another way we are now running the legal foundations and we must never forget that behind child pornography images are terrible acts of abuse against children. the authorities say investigators will be given all means available to track down sex offenders but it is proving divisive supporters of the strategy insist it will help kill off the so-called dark net of illegal websites while opponents argue that crimes cannot be solved by creating new crimes project he's got from the u.k.'s christian legal center told us that evidence gathered in such a way could potentially prove inadequate in court and you look at the crime shows on t.v. and they have solicitation of prostitution or or pull undercover policeman doing.
9:10 pm
selling drugs those are incidences where they're not committing crimes now generating child pornography certainly is so whether they're creating a crime or not is one question to me the bigger question is the issue of whether you can convict someone based on evidence that was gathered through criminal activity and i think that this might backfire on them by catching people not having to release them because of tarnished evidence. the internet watch foundation report on child sexual abuse imagery found that europe is the world's worst when it comes to online child pornography the continent hosts around 2 thirds of all confirmed cases with the netherlands having the most offenders political commentator under walker and former british police officer peter kirk and shared their views with us . it would obviously have to be used very carefully and would be used sparingly. there are various things that could be done to minimize the risk of it being spread further but if the aim is to close down and arrest all those using the particular
9:11 pm
platform or chat room that you're gaining access to then in a way it's sort of self destructs to a certain extent anyway in the united kingdom these sorts of images and videos would be illegal and the reason that they're illegal is not because there's a victim of them because clearly there is until in a simulated image but what there it what it has the potential to do is to excite offenders and what we don't want to do is have a government in your producing material that can potentially excite people into offending in real life or outside the virtual world and i can understand the view but the amounts of child sexual imagery that's out there is absolutely enormous anything added by the german police will be an absolute drop in the ocean i also think there's another more general concern about the issue of entrapment we have as a society have to protect our society from police going too far and i think that this potentially is
9:12 pm
a bridge too far this wouldn't be entrapment and entrapment is unlawful it would be a means of getting into a closed close space for a very long time in the u.k. the police have used informants who have participated in the commission of crimes in a minor role classically the getaway driver. in a bank robbery. would be able to pay off for oysters a participating informant in the crime i think the significant concern is that people who starts on child pornography will begin offending against children in real life it's hard to imagine anybody saying i'm only willing to consume fake child pornography i should majed you. stuff i just don't see that everybody would would delineates in that way if they were a sex offender and i think putting more material onto a dark web seems instinctively to me to be making the problem potentially far worse
9:13 pm
policing in these sorts of areas is a dirty business and sometimes you have to get your hands dirty to a certain extent to take out the really bad players. bolivia's the senate has passed a bill calling for new presidential elections in an attempt to quell the turmoil gripping the country but the legislation prevents the ousted head of state ever morales from running on friday the former leader was also charged with sedition and terrorism in a case he has said lacks any legitimacy prosecutors claim or alice masterminded a blockade or that prevented food from entering of the latin american nation government representatives say that they have recordings of the former leader taken from a protester was confiscated phone voice alleged to be valid morales's heard advising ways to shut down roads and also mentions returning to bolivia the bolivian foreign minister says the lawsuit goes against his status of political asylum while morales him self has called the recording fact. i denounce believe used to facto government

a former u.n. officer who believes that there is foreign pressure behind the accusations against us. 1st of all the circulation of being a terrible piece of script writing from white collar or big bomb or print cover i mean they are doing i mean they're trying to convert you or out of that kind of like you know american so i'm hussein i'm excited you're a bit but more lives is towards that direction somebody who could be part of that should be part of it i should be persecuted it by international law 'd this is a very much an american decided so with this should be very clear agenda for the security council i mean the u.s. kind of do this. because they can do it with anyone who poses north american or you would see in germany i mean these are the problem you know is so neat the national

a big hit after the botched launch tesla's c.e.o. personal net worth plunged $768000000.00 the firm's share price also dived 6 percent in one day now the internet's already revved up the mean machine comparing this mashable cyber truck to the time traveling de lorean from back to the future to a physical metaphor for mosques embarrassment as well and spotting its uncanny resemblance to old school video games i must admit it on twitter that they have got some improvements to make before going into production and posted a video to prove that the steel ball stunt had gone well in rehearsal it's not only the windows that don't make the cut a tesla car owner in europe learned the hard way that the very heart of the vehicles the batteries could prove lethal.

9:24 pm
a real authorize ation of the patriot act. and active shortly after 911 the u.s. patriot act was aimed at strengthening national security has been revised a number of times and was all but replaced with a few modifications to become u.s. freedom act in 2015 now the law has long come in for criticism for giving us intelligence a legal tool to spy on citizens the f.b.i. and the n.s.a. can access people's phone calls e-mails and financial records without a court order investigative journalist david lindorff describes the patriot act as questionable and a waste of time you can have your phone tapped when you're not even suspected of anything just because they want to monitor you and see whether they find out something by monitoring you that's not a free country the intelligence that they've been gathering has only possibly stopped one minor terrorist act and even met questionable so all of this
9:25 pm
law has been a waste of time but it here huge violation of people's freedom and it makes a joke out of the 1st amendment that if people can be spied on who are guilty or suspected of anything. and there really is no bill of rights it's all you know verbiage with no. new reality to back it up. there's a from a bag of headlines in about 35 minutes stay with us.
