3:49 am
hello i'm barbara starr you're watching out as iraq life from london also coming up . the death toll continues to rise in iraq but the government denies its forces shot at protesters exit polls are showing now that tunisia is main religious party coming 1st in the country's parliamentary election. and hong kong police moving to disperse tens of thousands of masked protesters defying a colonial era back. hello welcome to the program a 2nd whistleblower has come forward in the impeachment inquiry against us president donald trump a lawyer who is now representing both people says his client has spoken to the head of the intelligence community's internal watchdog and he says the new whistleblower
3:50 am
has firsthand knowledge of some of the allegations made in the old regional complaint trump is accused of using his position to pressure ukraine into investigating his political rival joe biden and his son ahead of next year's u.s. presidential elections trump has repeatedly rejected the over the general complaint well shipper clancy joins us live now from washington d.c. as a ship 1st of all how significant is the existence of the 2nd whistleblower. well on the cuts one of the arguments that the trumpet ministration has been making against the whistleblower the main whistleblower who made the official complaint and we should be clear there's no other official complaint there remains only one whistleblower complaint but the point is this person who's come forward corroborates that initial complaint talk to the inspector general for the intelligence community and presumably help the intelligence the inspector general come to pollution that the whistleblower complaint was credible and urgent which is
3:51 am
why the inspector general for that the complaint to the director of national intelligence who was then supposed to forward it to congress but didn't so it basically undercuts one of donald trump's one of donald trump's main arguments in all this is based on hearsay that from what we know that the the original whistleblower is a member of the cia who was attached to the national security council was in the white house at the time and they were simply reporting concerns that had been expressed to them by others who actually witnessed the whole traumas interactions with the ukrainian government and specifically the there was there were concerns that donald trump was asking the ukrainian government to get involved in the 2020 alexion by investigating one of the tribes potential opponents on the 22 of the election joe biden and if the existence of a 2nd whistleblower undercuts trumps argument i was trying from south reacting to this. that wasn't the only argument of the trump administration has been putting
3:52 am
forward old trump is maintained and that's one of the reasons why he's quite happy about other countries to look into all of this but it's part of his role as president to look out for the national security of the united states and if joe biden is vice president or any of the other democrats or even if the whole russia get investigation began as a result of malfeasance of some sort corruption maybe in the intelligence community maybe the democratic party if the ukrainians were involved that it's his job to get to the bottom of it this is all part of the national security so he's continuing down that line he's saying look i think as someone who safeguards foreign policy national security it's in my right to be questions and trying to get other countries to cooperate as we try and get to the bottom of things and in fact has been tweeting this morning and he's really focusing heavily all not biden angle this is the last week that i saw the biden family was paid all fear and simple the fake news but still baking excuses for something that's totally inexcusable dog and by the way i would love running against one percent joe biden i just don't think it's going to happen and so on so it's interesting though because the argument that
3:53 am
it and it is getting traction by the way in the in the race for the democratic nomination is should joe biden have stood by as his son was suddenly receiving a huge amount of money from a ukrainian energy firm while joe biden was formulated ukrainian policy for the obama administration already some of the democratic presidential hopefuls assemble they would never have done that this is becoming an issue it is quite effective even though of course it's a bit hypocritical for donald trump because the same questions are being asked about his own children and conflicts of interest because for example if i could trump got a lot of trade logs from china just as donald trump was negotiating trade with china so this does go around but it does it does certainly does have you all to some questions about this is quite effective you have returned see with the latest on that developing story from washington d.c. she had thank you.
3:54 am
to go to iraq now where the government has denied that any of its security forces a fire directly a protesters during 6 days of violent demonstrations but the death toll continues to rise with another 5 people confirmed killed on sunday i think up to. 109 people have now been killed since the unrest began on tuesday and more than 6000 have been injured the violence continues despite the prime minister announcing a number of measures to try to appease protesters they're demanding jobs better public services and then and to corruption well the interior ministry has announced an investigation into the deaths but denied government forces are to blame but clearly from the limca not occasion everyone knows there were no armed battles clashes or confrontations between the security forces and the protesters but there were with hidden heena sans the targeted victims on both sides when we went to check the bodies of the motss the injuries were in the head or the heart it is
3:55 am
clear that the shooting did not take place from a close distance or from the area where the security forces were present a serious investigation is ongoing to find out who is behind such a wicked and he miss operation. well the prime minister says he'll meet protestors to discuss their demands and he's already announced a 17 point reform plan to try to appease them. these says any dead protesters will be designated martyrs that will ensure their families are granted special privileges is also promised that those injured will be treated at the expense of the state including overseas medical care the government will set up a program to train $150000.00 unemployed iraqis and offer loans for small and medium sized businesses it will also provide a 3 month jobseekers allowance for another $150000.00 people but he says protesters must reciprocate and end the rallies which have paralyzed the capital and several other cities since tuesday they want calm as more now from the capital back that.
3:56 am
iraqi progress. seems to be under a tremendous amount of pressure within the corridors of power there is a significant move to try and call for elections he's only been in power for a year and he's tried to appeal for calm over the last few days just a few days ago he was saying that he needed time to try and mount a cabinet reshuffle to try to address some of the protesters demands that hasn't worked at protests still ongoing and they seem to be getting larger particularly in the south of the country and in the center of the country now he's also been speaking very recently in the last 12 hours where he's been talking about the protest movement itself that's interesting he's actually addressed the issue of life eye on the protesters he said what's going on is that the security forces only fire when they come under threat that is being rubbished by the protesters who say the security forces are actually firing indiscriminately he also addressed the
3:57 am
protesters concerns and said i'm going to go and i'll sit with them and i'll listen to them it's actually worth taking a look at what he had to say. i'm ready to go with broadly proteus is stationed and meet them on boys to other locations in other provinces without any armed forces i will go and meet them without weapons and sit with them for hours to listen to the demands and if this will ease the situation the number 80 to do that in the coming days and the scenes return we call them halting the protests in baghdad streets and also in the provinces so that's a promise that they're addressing the concerns of the protesters however we are hearing that the protest movement will continue i was out on the streets of baghdad intact or a square the focal point on sunday afternoon what i saw was a tremendous amount of security i was also hearing that protesters were gathering in small number around the streets of baghdad. exit polls
3:58 am
out of tunisia show the country's main religious party the enough the party has come 1st in parliamentary elections earlier the head of the heart of tunis the a party said it had won voter turnout has been low amid growing frustration with the established parties and their failure to solve the economic crisis well joins us live now from the capital tunis and hashem is of course been covering these elections at tell us a little bit about this and not there a victory by how much in was it a surprise. no it was not a surprise another party who was one of the most important political parties is 2011 into this year however they came 1st but they have not managed to secure the same number of seats they did in 2014 which means that in a whirl another losing some ground the party that came next was the 2nd was the part of tunisia that's that's a significant. victory for the before heart of today is it because it was founded
3:59 am
only 3 months ago by the media tycoon that we will cover we who is in jail and this year and this party's likely to shape the future of an it coalition in. the party that came 3rd which is another surprise in the election is the constitutional liberal party mostly a party affiliated with the. political party of the former presidents they lived in been highly the 4th is a coalition of independent candidates now the biggest problem in these results barbara is that another which came 1st and that was came 2nd made it's clear that they're not going to form a coalition government because they are widely considered as an opposing of the political spectrum in tunisia and the likelihood of a political impasse into this you know is really high. which i guess complicates many situations and economic problems that tunisia is facing and also we can sense
4:00 am
a bit of a discontent among the voting public because actually turnout i mean i think it was in the mid 20 percent in the middle of the afternoon and even at closing time the turnout has been an issue hasn't it that is absolutely no down the voters' intent is you continue to those strong messages of rebuke to the political establishment closing to night many of the established political parties like the heart of tunisia like. tunis have been severely punished by voters there were they have made significant gains in 2014 a completely losing ground the president the 1st round of presidential election we saw we've seen the same pattern which is voters is sitting as you are frustrated with the political it is choosing outsiders the former. retired law professor who is now the likely candidates.
