6:02 am
deal and the president knew about it all things cohen had previously denied bruce fein worked in the justice department and he says this is a big deal so this is a time where we have a criminal information that identifies the president himself secondly it also indicates that president trump or then candidate trump felt vulnerable if it was known that he was dealing. in russian enterprises or because he would need to curry the favor of mr putin nothing happens in russia of important without mr putin's approval the president dismissed the news in his usual fashion badmouthing his former top aide is a weak person. by being weak god like other people that you watch he's a weak person and what he's trying to do is get a reduced sentence so he's lying about a project that everybody knew about i mean we were very open to where the kohen did plead guilty to crimes that completely related to trial pain of women who tried had

an affair with so they would stay quiet before the election and while it might not have been illegal to do a deal in russia while he is under investigation for potentially colluding with russia to win the election it would have looked suspicious this makes six six close aides to the president have now pled guilty as part of the special counsel's probe democrats say this is bad for the president you've got all these closest associates of the president one after another pleading guilty often pleading guilty about their ties to russia and russians and what are they covering up for and we also have a white house that still seems just obsessed about this investigation it's believed the special counsel has filed several indictments that are still under seal which means it is quite likely michael cohen won't be the last to face the cameras or the court in washington. mike hanna is also following the story and joins us live from
6:04 am
washington d.c. mike tell us more about the wider implications of cohen's admission for the miller investigation and the president trying. well michael cohen statement is absolutely critical because he says in the court papers that he lied to congress in order not to publicly contradict an individual named as individual one in the court papers subsequently identified as donald trump the reason for this is that donald trump throughout the presidential campaign continually insisted publicly that he had no building business dealings in russia whatsoever michael cohen severance that negotiations continued for trump properties operations in russia until at least june one thousand nine hundred sixteen by that time president trump was a candidate in an election still conducting business deals that would appear with russian figures having been warned by intelligence agencies that there were some
6:05 am
russian actions against the electoral process so certain this very very damning evidence given by michael cohen president trump dismissed as a tease just tweeted in the last few minutes saying that this proves that there is no collusion well very much the opposite it indicates that individual one that is president trump also had negotiations and talks to members of his family to michael cohen himself a rising here the possibility of the subordination to purchase the question is did donald trump at any stage instruct any members of his family or indeed his personal lawyer at the time to lie about what was happening in terms of those dealings with russia mike hanna in washington d.c. thanks very much for that mike. well donald trump has now arrived in argentina joining fellow wild leaders for the g. twenty summit but saudi crown prince mohammed bin cylons attendance has

6:07 am
is to build consensus on crucial issues like climate change and inequality. among them the presence of saudi crown prince mohammed bin salomon and the request by human rights watch to investigate him over the murder of journalism i go. skilling has changed relations between saudi and the western world. gone says he's ready to talk to the crown prince about what happened. to egypt's a clear sure i have always been very clear on the case of saudi arabia and i will inevitably have the opportunity to discuss it with the saudi crown prince on the margins of this g. twenty meeting we will have the opportunity to discuss it among european leaders as i requested before the g. seven donald trump arrived in when a site is on thursday evening ready to discuss the trade war between the united states and china he's cancelled he's meeting with russian president vladimir putin after the seizure of crane and ships by russia at the crimean peninsula. this

protester came all the way from the united states carrying a baby trump. he's been an activist opposing the u.s. foreign policy since the vietnam war we would like the president of the united states that are a little bit more mature that's if i was going to boil it down to just one statement it would be that we think it's asinine that he's on twitter we think it's asinine that he's casual and that he. picks fights seems to want to take the smallest and lowest road instead of the high the g twenty begins proper on friday this mass yoga session was organized to help leaders concentrate on resoldering their differences. the protest around when a site is will remind them how hard that task is likely to be. a scientist. alan fisher is also when is areas and has this up days. oh a number of issues have dominated the run up to the g twenty they aren't talking about
6:09 am
the agenda they're talking about mohammed bin salminen who will meet the saudi crown prince we know already that donald trump isn't going to do that we know that president putin would like to we know that mohammed bin salman has requested to meet president of the one of tuckey that may well happen but everyone's going to be watching to see who shakes his hand who welcomes him to the dinner who sits beside them who he stands next to in the family photo all of this will give an indication on whether or not mohammed bin selman is being welcomed back into the international community if the international community is ready to put aside the issues they have particularly over the killing of jamal khashoggi in fact one senior royal said at the weekend that if you want to talk about the global economy if you want to do business then you really have to deal with the saudi government and that means dealing with mohamed ben solomon but the organizers of the g. twenty and global leaders are also hoping that crucial issues will be discussed things like global warming things like the global economy there are some experts
