2:06 am
interesting as we see things moving forward how things will involve you know this is the morning after if you will we saw agents report that it was widespread violence some of the worst violence we've seen in these nearly 4 months of protest during this period what's going to be interesting is to see how both sides react to you know we heard from the police blaming the protesters that the policemen acted in self defense protesters came out protesters groups came out last night saying that this was these were crimes committed by the police we'll probably hear more moving forward right now that's where we stand the city just waking up after this very devastating day on tuesday. where do we go from here. right now we know that the citizens group this is a group that kind of is over headed for a lot of the protesting movements protester movements they're going to be holding a press conference later on the day here wednesday at the teenager school who was
2:07 am
shot they're going to be holding it there later we know that there's been a call they called so far again it's early hours it's just after 7 am here but vague calls for a protest of a calls for flash mobs so there is still word going out in these protesters chat groups that they want to continue with things it's going to be difficult because it's a normal week day a lot of times when we see these spontaneous protest spontaneous rallies no it happens on the weekends when there are a lot more people who are available to come out for these flash mobs but they're calling for that early calls for that here on wednesday the day after we saw you know 100000 take to the streets in some of the most violent actions we have seen since these 4 months of protests in a school in hong kong thank you. to mainland china now where the anniversary was an occasion for celebration the no protest parades were held in beijing at a sensitive time for chinese diplomacy this economy well matheson was the.

2:09 am
to the china of chairman mao the new middle class is getting wealthier and the country's transformed itself into an economic global power but one of the central messages of things celebrations today seems to be a cautionary one yes we should acknowledge what china has achieved so far but there could be tough times ahead. for president xi as centralizing and strengthening control in beijing some of the president's political rivals have been swept up in his crackdown on corruption as well as the ongoing protests in hong kong and allegations linked to human rights the trade war with the us is forcing china's economy to slow down this is a not a adversity of high expectations that is going to be very glorious in the near future it's an anniversary in which we look back on what china has been able to attain and we talk about a new era of sacrifices and struggle in 198910 and one square. bloodshed when pro-democracy demonstrators stood up against time in 29 china is determined to

2:11 am
intimidate state department staff the chairman of 3 house committee say any attempt by pompei o to prevent officials from speaking to them is illegal and will be seen as obstructing the inquiry democrats are investigating whether president trump pressured ukraine's leader for personal gain in a phone call but a lot to me is a lenski has dismissed the allegations saying he cannot be influenced. i've never felt any influence on me and there are a lot of people in russia in the west standard ukraine who would like to influence me but i love the president of ukraine of independent ukraine and it seems to me that my state so far shows that it is impossible to influence me. castro joins us live now from washington d.c. heidi what more do we know about this heated exchange between sect your state might compare and the democratic chairman. well they're accusing both sides are accusing each other of intimidating witnesses but it's curious because these are witnesses
2:12 am
who are former and current state department employees and it's an open question exactly who they may feel that they need protection from these are individuals who are implicated in this ukraine investigation by who may not be defacto trump defenders who are we talking about well one witness in part to go there is marie. vonnegut she is the former u.s. ambassador to ukraine who was suddenly recalled to washington in may and her name came up in this phone call between president and the president of ukraine in july in which trump said that she was in his words bad news she reportedly wasn't on board with the president's efforts to try to get ukraine to help dig up dirt on trump's domestic political rivals and she has agreed to testify before congress on october 11th and nother witness that democrats are hoping to hear from is kurt
2:13 am
volker he is the former ukrainian envoy who according to a whistleblower report was sent to ukraine soon after this phone call between trump and zelinsky to help clean up the mess from that call now volcker resigned last week as soon as he received the demand to testify before congress and he has agreed to appear on thursday neil and how do you know that a. president donald trump he keeps insisting over and over again that there's nothing to see here well how is the president being say. well today he had no public events but he did publicly air his grievances on twitter in a series of angry tweets he again tried to discredit this whistleblower who at this point is still anonymous we know that he comes from the intelligence community and the president said on twitter why he wasn't entitled to interview this whistleblower and the people that he says in the white house who gave this
2:14 am
whistleblower false information he went on to call all of this investigation a hoax that alissa did a critical response from a member of trump's own party senator chuck grassley who is the most senior republican in the u.s. senate he said that the whistleblower should be heard and protected now that wasn't a rebuke that called out president trump by name but it certainly is an indication that there is some brewing concern among the republican rank and file even as democrats are now continuing to build their case to a possible impeachment. in washington d.c. thank you for that update we'll just say see is a former state department official who served under president obama he joins us now from washington d.c. to firstly thank you for joining us so what do you make of this exchange between monk pohnpei of the democratic chairman who's waiting in all of this is a possible to say oh it is because all of this is going far deeper
2:15 am
with tentacles in all kinds of places that we're just discovering but behind the scenes they're extending very far and very deep indeed and i mean the criminal ones of this administration are now effecting the state department the justice department the defense department our intelligence agencies except through. this secretary of state is in running with his predecessor of probably being around very soon as the worst one we've ever had and that is saying a lot because he came in claiming that he was going to bring the swagger back to us diplomacy in fact he's in danger in it and in light of his own future prospects he has a size and a senate seat and all of that is going up in smoke he is definitely not winning from this exchange and specifically what sort of pressure has the white house been putting on individuals to limit the scope of their testimonies everything that they can think of legal threats personal threats all kinds of
2:16 am
things about. you must you know engage in extreme claims of privilege all kinds of things i mean it's really the height of this is something like we've never seen before and all eyes are really on the senate we're seeing chuck grassley now with a very strong statement others behind the scenes it's not just mitt romney there are some 30 plus senators republican senators who are preparing if a formal impeachment vote comes to abandon this president it is really heating up here in washington d.c. now as we've been saying repeatedly it doesn't matter what you seem to throw president trump and those close to him and he and his supporters continue to repeatedly say there's nothing to see he was difficult to gauge from outside the u.s. looking in is his public backing for against impeachment what do people really think that. well this is all something in motion remember that.
2:17 am
nancy pelosi would never get to this point if she wasn't sure of several key things and one of those is a majority of the american people in favor of impeachment proceedings that is now coming into view we're now seeing polls that have things tied which is a big sea change in a very short amount of time and it's all moving in the direction of majority as revelation upon revelation comes out we are now looking at a kind of criminal enterprise that has descended on this city and on this government the rot starts in the white house and it's extend the noun to all of our top agencies to embassies abroad to our allies and adversaries top headquarters of governments i mean where else can it go this is going to get more dramatic there are many more shoes left to drop
2:18 am
a lot of these officials including attorney general barr and secretary of state pump aoe are in very deep trouble it could be right away with obstruction of justice charges in the pietschmann proceedings themselves that are rapidly coming into view jeff stacy in washington d.c. thank you very much for your insight. elections are to be held in separatist controlled eastern ukraine aimed at paving the way for talks between the ukrainian government and russia which backs the separatists is the latest peace move on the ukraine's new government led by president selenski after last month's mass prisoner exchange with moscow for tour dates and b. reports. protesters outside the ukrainian president's office in the capital kiev they're angry about an agreement with kremlin backed separatists in eastern ukraine which allows for elections a little speech a territory they say it amounts to capitulation to russia to get their work in the war has been going on in ukraine as
2:19 am
a secure almost 5 years ukrainian soldiers die the assured their blood and volunteers provide aid to the community cares about ukrainian independence and the in one day all of these if it's a broken by a statement of capitulation by the presidential office the agreement between the ukrainian government kremlin backed separatists russia and european monitors was signed in the belorussian capital minsk separatist negotiators say it's an important 1st step to end the fighting between separatists and ukrainian government forces the began after russian forces seized an annex the crimean peninsula from ukraine in 2014. it's a starting point where we begin the process of creating the conditions for political resettlement 1st of all it means a change in the ukrainian constitution and the adoption of a special long about the election. at least 13000 people have been killed in
2:20 am
fighting over the last 5 years he claims recently elected president vladimir the lenski wants to revive peace negotiations with russia but says elections will be held only when ukraine regains control of all of its borders with russia still. all this means to journalists and members of the audience. that there will be no election under the gun and there can't be any. but these protesters fears the lenski has made too many concessions already and a warning that russia will be a tough negotiating partner in any future talks to end fighting in eastern ukraine victoria gates and be out is there let's bring in mark so makowski use a nonresident senior fellow at the atlantic council he joins us now live from washington d.c. mark thank you very much for joining us plus start by asking you well this seems to be quite a risky move from president selenski what's behind it. you know president selenski made a promise of peace and
2:21 am
a promise of any corruption ukraine to incredibly lofty goals that you feel that he has a very short window to try to achieve so several months after an election he believes that now is the time to pursue peace with russia so you're starting to see certain steps that are being taken to achieve that goal one is a prisoner exchange where you have several key russian and ukrainian. personnel that are being exchanged some say that that price is too high for ukraine because some of the people that were released including someone implicated in the image $17.00 shoot down and now you're seeing the likely proposal of at least the accepting in current simple the steinmeyer plan which is a plan that your own foreign minister laid out that would sequence elections in return for which are all of russian occupation of the separate regions but giving them special status within within ukraine by ukraine's constitution so it's a once get think deliberately slowly is starting to make some pretty painful
2:22 am
movements toward peace and again this is all leading to try to resume a presidential level dialogue in the normative format between the german french ukrainian and russian presidents this fall but former ukrainian officials worry that ukraine will be giving up some of its self and team by granting an election in the east of the country isn't there a risk that this could help consolidate demands for independence or at least greater autonomy for all of those separatists in the east the country. absolutely russia is continuing its occupation of ukraine russia continues to maintain forces in cognito in eastern ukraine that are supporting the separatists these calls for elections would have to be sequenced in a way that would see and allow russian influence to be undermined russia controlled these regions their media controls the message into these regions so russia is counting on an election in eastern ukraine essentially solidifying moscow's control
2:23 am
over the east because they believe that the separatist leaders ultimately would win in that election so you really can't have korean fair elections in eastern ukraine under current conditions and that's exactly what moscow wants it wants to use this process with what it considers a weak ukrainian president who is growing more and more isolated from international partners in the west tire take advantage at a very decisive moment and solidify the kremlin's gains on the ground in the east and forever cold the donbass away from growing what else do you think is a play here how much is this is about fulfilling conditions for more international aid we know that the i.m.f. for instance stops giving aid to ukraine while there was this territorial dispute. you know you you're exactly right there's triple pressure points that selenski is facing one we discussed domestically internally he's facing pressure based on the promises that he laid out the president he's facing obviously pressure from the russian federation which continues to occupy ukraine but most importantly in recent
2:24 am
weeks we've seen pressure from ukraine backers from the west france has laid out an interest in normalizing ties with moscow maybe even inviting moscow back to the next year when it's hosted by the united states obviously we have a ukraine scandal that's embroiling washington broiling the current president who put significant pressure on selenski to try to get him to make cooperation with this administration on serving the president's political needs in withholding militaria aid and of course germany is always a question whether or not merkel's future political position could undermine ukraine's support from what it has considered a very strong source of support from berlin so so one skier exactly right is facing pressure he kind of feels then maybe growing increasingly isolated so at least yes to try to achieve some measure of progress toward peace to at least showcase the try maybe he failed but he tried and russia is ultimately the source of the lack of
2:25 am
ability to gain peace but he can't essentially make that claim until he tries to make some painful concessions toward peace all right. thank you very much for your insight. thanks for your time. north korea has fired a missile off its east coast towards japan south korea and japan say they detected the launch just before 8 am local time it came from one side and then crashed into the sea of japan. at least 25 soldiers have been killed in an attack on 2 army bases in mali central region of party government officials say fighters linked to al qaeda targeted its forces on sunday night and bull kesey doro about 60 people are still missing this is one of the worst attacks since a campaign against armed groups in the sahara region was launched this year iraq's prime minister says an inquiry will be opened after 2 people were killed during a violent nationwide protest another $200.00 people were injured as police fired

accountability the verdict was a shannon find the defendant amber geiger guilty of murder as charged with the one of the attorneys for the family explain why there were sharp intake of breath when the verdict was announced it's a sad reality that this community waited on pins and needles to decide whether or not someone could be held guilty for killing another young black man in his home while eating ice cream this should have been automatic this should have been anticipated expected but it is extremely rare in september of 2018 and the guy got returned to her apartment building after her shift on the dallas police force she says she was tied and mistakenly into the wrong apartment be unlocked apartment of 26 year old accountant both of these role who has been eating vanilla ice cream on his couch watching t.v. gaga said she feared an intruder was in her apartment she drew her weapon and shot both him twice she admitted she intended to kill him she says she soon realized her
