a lot of the charge would be conspiracy and he did not find enough evidence to charge the campaign or campaign that fairly it with conspiracy with russia but what he does lay out very very clearly number one is attempts by the russian security officials to penetrate election systems in the embedded states three specific instances in which they were successful in florida illinois and then a computer election manufacturer in florida there are others those are three days now the second part of what he lays out are communications between the trump team and russian officials conspiracy no they were asking please would you penetrate for what they were viewing is through you know like a tank and they were benefiting from the russian interference and so that is very clear and very damning in damaging in that report although it does not rise to the level of the prosecutor oh by a lation a conspiracy in terms of the way the law is laid out the united states and also
according to mr mr trump a thirty three zero lapses of memory i mean that's thirty lapses of memory from a man who eighteen months ago in a public forum said he's got the best memory in the world does that work. yes thirty lapses in memory of course those pain when he was given the opportunity to present written answers and as you said at the top what the special prosecutor didn't do that democrats are curious about is he did not interview the president one on one face to face he said he didn't do that because of the timing involved but that may be a very serious misstep as we know i mean obstruction and law requires finding intent to obstruct very difficult to find in ten if you don't speak to somebody directly so the fact the prosecutor let the president off on that and yet the president still has these thirty lasses in written answers is going to be a big issue great democrats as they will bob muller in front of the house of
representatives maybe closely the senate to answer questions on this investigation there were ten and i quote ten episodes of obstruction of justice not the concept of that trumps critics clearly that will linger a long time for them in the memory but those ten episodes of obstructing american justice distilled down for me if you can what kind of legal process that may yet become point number one and point number two who drive it. so but all there laid out those ten instances as you mentioned a potential obstruction of justice and he said since we cannot and date a sitting president i am going to relate these out and politically let the house of representatives decide if it wants to act and when you do oversight or impeachment and also if and when the president leaves the white house the justice department could potentially decide to charge the president after the fact and so that's why
he thought it was important to lay those out and that's also why he says very clearly there is evidence of obstruction we cannot charge but we also cannot exonerate and so he left it open these two routes it's political and potentially illegal after the president leaves the white house that could be pursued if and when either the democrats in the house or the justice department under a new president decides to do that and again those are big ifs but the public can go out and repeat what those ten instances that they found were and the fascinating part of this story is that the president tended to obstruct when it's actually his staff we come to find out who stopped him from doing that so really the president attempted according to what bob mueller lays out what his staff refused to carry out his orders these would be people like the white house attorney donegan who refused to make steps to file by or rather the special prosecutor and corey
lewandowsky his former campaign manager who wouldn't go to jeff sessions and do what the president wanted so the president benefited from the fact that staff would not follow through in terms of what he was asking them to do. that in your resell thank you so much christensen is in new york taking a closer look now at some of the fallout from the moller investigation has sparked a range of separate worries for the u.s. president. robert muller did not charge president trump with the crime his inquiry did help trigger however several new and wide ranging investigations related to the president's business practices as well as his presidency including some right here at federal court in new york new york is just one of a half dozen federal state and city jurisdictions conducting their own often overlapping investigations one centers on alleged hush money payments to two women
including stormy daniels by the president's former personal attorney in the final weeks of his campaign another looks at how his inaugural committee raised more than a hundred million dollars nearly double the previous record and where that money went to nowhere comes close to the president's hometown when it comes to buildings with the trump name on them like a hotel near central park but it's also here in new york where the president is most under the microscope. three state agencies here have launched inquiries into his business practices and they're looking at whether trump inflated his wealth when applying for loans while elsewhere the nation's capital there are at least six congressional investigations most led by house democrats most recently the house ways and means committee out for the president's personal income tax historically presidents have shared them voluntarily this president has refused. now the full extent of these inquiries and the president's legal jeopardy isn't clear and
justice department policy prohibits federal prosecutors from indicting a sitting president but state officials could try and congress is likely to continue its digging into two thousand and twenty and the next election cycle thanks mostly to come for you here on the news hour including flash flooding in iran will bring two point five billion dollars from the country's economy plus. i'm the first apartment in a house in the sand from rebuilding not to dam was easy but this cathedral. proves that it can be done. and in the sport the san jose sharks try to stay alive in the n.h.l. playoffs details with santa in about thirty minutes. turkey has detained two people for allegedly spying on arab nationals on behalf of the united arab emirates let's get more now from the trash can and he joins us live
from istanbul natasha hi there what else do we know. peter sources tell that two men men they believe are operatives collecting intelligence for the united arab emirates were detained on monday they have still been detained are they are still detained they were detained here in istanbul and they're suspected of spying on arab dissidents since the arab spring many arab dissidents have sought refuge here in turkey viewing it as kind of a safe haven if you will but we don't have much more confirmed by senior officials now this was first reported by reuters and we're used to saying that they believe that these senior officials are telling reuters that these men were spying on behalf of the united arab emirates and that the reason they may have been here is because the first man arrived shortly after the death of saudi journalist and
washington post columnist jamal khashoggi he was murdered in the saudi consulate here in istanbul in october and according to what a senior official has told reuters he arrived just days after chris show g.'s murder then another man followed perhaps to assist with quote the workload now an official tells roeder reuters that the operatives have been monitored for the last six months but again it's still very unclear exactly what they were looking for a senior official says that they may have been here as a result of the shoji murder but they also may have been here to spy on arab dissidents this is a developing story and we'll bring you more when we have it. and sasha thanks very much. thousands of protesters are still gathered outside the military headquarters in the sudanese capital khartoum after the biggest rally since the overthrow of the president omar al bashir last week the protesters want the civilian led transition
they're expected to name a team on sunday to take charge of the country the ruling military council as promises of reforms have done little to satisfy people's demands so how did sudan get here by the end of last year protests started over the rising cost of bread but soon came demands that omar bashir should step down more than one thousand protesters were detained by government forces in february sudan's national security and intelligence services said bashir would step down but the president was defiant declaring a national state of emergency by april thousands of demonstrators reached the military headquarters and police said they would support a quote peaceful transition of power on april the eleventh the military announced that bashir had been ousted and arrested but that still not appeased the protesters let gets more on this for you here on the news are joining us in the studio is adam he's a sudanese lawyer and research associate at the school of oriental and african studies
in london mr adam why is this taking so long. physically. the military they said before you no doubt. having some sort of for political will to act that let's remember that it should all get keep in mind that you know the or soon or push it and then you know the bush and the this or this actually happened because of the strong pressure but the demonstrators on the ground and that's right because they don't have any kind of political will because that one of them that probably give it some so is this was our sustained pressure action from demonstrators they're not going out but i think now that the mystery if is in a way that actually the military council is actually responding to the pressure that's why they're sitting united still actually mr thing in front of the military you know get our command for all of these days and. i expect i'm sure they can you know to that one because they're actually trying to demonstrate this and the military actually accounts and that's why they want to grantee you know that desperation and their demands actually be allies when they begin i mean what is it
is homesick probably for interrupting you there isn't what is it's about the military we've had sixteen weeks four months of protests and it seems to me we so weak so weak the military has consistently misread the staying power of the protesters you know of course they sit through that they don't have the political will that's for sure and also that afraid of any kind of thing that a friend of soviet rule let's remember him a deal the military council on the head of the but it didn't cost a deal was actually. to give them so they fought all the wars like what in that court they've been together all this time they. saw four of them it's very actually difficult to move forward without you know putting pressure on them but but to be honest as you would be you know transition there would be no political action is to put it in the country with the offer to give power to actually been seen exist actually in the country that's why the protests that they should have to put sustained pressure on the military council to get the government to simply get a hold if the protesters get what they want to mean given that they had so long of
authoritarian military rule in the country they kind of skipped a generation in the political development in the way that people do politics they stand for office they run the country can those protesters if in a year say you and i are having a conversation after free and fair elections can they do it and do it properly. it is difficult i must say it is very difficult transition given actually this sea of jihad for fraud given actually the structure of political parties and civil source it's actually about the order again or this kind of thing but people are determined since the action of the deep end they removed you know the ship to get after fifty years i think or so that we can actually get to claim their country and actually not establish and heal democracy and freedom in a kind of predictive system and to continue to trust that you know they can do it it's very complicated it's not going to be easy it's not going to be like you know something small of but still people are came and they have the will to pass through this kind of transition mr adam again great to talk to you thank you so much.
friday process well underway for a ninth successive week in algeria thousands in the capital algiers chanting down with the system the long term president abdelaziz bouteflika was ousted earlier this month protesters continue to demand change because of the interim government's links to put a flicker and the latest in presidential elections until july your simple and joins us here in doha he's a professor of political science at castle university mr bill and all welcome back to the news quite can't there on the elections before july obviously because the people in the sleeves do not want it to happen those who are going to organize do elections all associated with the illusion the. hurdle for the government mr bud we fall into the administer is very well known for the good in the elections let's not forget the beautiful managed to belike for six point five million signatures and his intention was novel to run for election
this is the first one the second one is so like forty eight when you see polities so far have said that they're not going to leave. lists and also do. the group of lawyers say that will not go to supervise this elections so. clear months the fourth of july is really impossible to have presidential election the atmosphere up to now has been kind of a tinderbox dry will the authorities try to keep a lid on this between now and when the votes should take place. to do told his would like to do that but i don't think that the street. will stop the protests just leads with keep pushing the pressures on the auto to on the one hand and most importantly on the military because ations by the chief of staff. suggests that he be he's on the side of the people and the people who want him to take decisive
steps in a little faults. with the president to resign and also the government to resign like he did with former president. is there anything the current interim administration could do that would be a cheap fix to make sure that the situation did come between now and any election when. it is concerned the only thing that would satisfy them that the couldn't mutilation will do is simply to the people have been saying it loud and clear when we had the system when we did lee is. one of them but i used the president of the constitutional council and. pushing. on the opportunities for this government the interim president to go professor as ever thank you so much thank you. two seasons of weather in australia rob

have reported to being killed in the last five months spiers brokered by the un have helped to cut the casualty rate but the heavy fighting in certain areas well it does continue. as an analyst of the armed conflict location data project which published those figures. the violence in yemen has overall decreased since the beginning of twenty nineteen mostly due to a decrease in violence in the previous awful day which had become the flashpoint of the major offensive last year. they'd agree with has managed to actually stop violence or to prevent violence from escalating in their region but what we've seen is actually an escalation of violence in outer regions in the north in. in our valley as well and this was mostly due to the fact that the who thiis have actually engaged in repression of local tribal actors for instance in.
