5:00 am
i really felt liberated as a journalist and i'm. going to the truth doesn't i will that's what this job. this is al jazeera. welcome to the al-jazeera news our life my headquarters here in doha coming up in the next 60 minutes a damning impeachment report accuses donald trump of soliciting help from ukraine's president to boost his chances of reelection. this is about whether the american people have a right to expect that the president is going to act in their interests with their security in mind and not for some illicit personal or political reasons. also the

threat of u.s. sanctions on china intensifies over beijing's treatment of weak and muslims. alliance the french and u.s. presidents at the center of a divisive nato meeting. and iran admits protestors it calls rioters were shot dead but disputes how many were killed. welcome to the news on donald trump's political rivals have laid out what they say is overwhelming evidence of the u.s. president's misconduct in office the 300 page impeachment report says trump used his power to seek help from ukraine's president to benefit his reelection bid hygeia castro has more from washington d.c. . house intelligence chairman adam schiff presentation of his committee's report on donald trump offered little more than was already known. but it's
5:02 am
a key moment in what could be the impeachment of a president this is not about ukraine this is about our democracy this is about our national security this is about whether the american people have a right to expect that the president i states is going to act of their interests with their security in mind and not for some illicit personal or political reason so americans should care deeply about where the president and states is betraying their trust in him betraying that oath that he took to the constitution to protect our country and defend its institutions according to the report president trump solicited interference from ukraine to benefit his reelection conditioning a white house visit for the ukrainian president and $400000000.00 in u.s. military aid on a public statement that ukraine would investigate joe biden's family for alleged corruption trump denies he did anything wrong a white house spokeswoman released a statement saying at the end of a one sided sham process chairmanship and the democrats utterly fail to produce any
5:03 am
evidence of wrongdoing by president trump this report reflects nothing more than their frustrations chairmanships report reads like the ramblings of a basement blogger straining to prove something when there is evidence of nothing the evidence came from 17 witnesses including state department and white house insiders who testified trump ran a shadow campaign that undermined official u.s. foreign policy toward ukraine there was also the partial transcript of a phone call in which trump asked ukraine's president for a favor the biden investigation republicans rebutted with their own report offering a very different reading of the facts they say the testimonies are here say that the phone call was perfect and that the democrats' efforts to include the president are an attack on a duly elected leader to laura provides nothing except a dreary drowsy appraisal for this country to watch as the impeachment process
5:04 am
slowly drags on with no direction no focus because they're having one big problem and the big problem is the president did nothing wrong and they can't prove. the process will now shift to the house judiciary committee which will draft articles of impeachment likely to focus on abuse of power and obstruction of congress americans have been evenly divided on whether to impeach and removed from office both political parties are claiming to be protecting american democracy how do you know castro al-jazeera washington or from berman is a professor of law at the university of missouri and has written a book called high crimes and misdemeanors he joins me now from washington d.c. good to have you with us on the program we know where this is going it's going to the judiciary committee then it will end up in the senate's but generally commentators have said it's just not going to go anywhere after that so what is the point what is the driving force for the democrats. the driving force i think is
5:05 am
laid out in considerable at considerable length and the report that was just produced by the intelligence committee and the driving force is the fact that. contrary to what the republicans want to say the committee has proven quite conclusively that mr trump did precisely what he's will be charged with doing that is to say has you've used his powers of prose in the united states. to extort help in his private election campaign from a vulnerable foreign country there really isn't any serious question that the facts prove precisely that now you raise a good question in the sense that given the plot party alignment of the senate it seems unlikely that the republican dominated senate will actually convict him once impeached by the house but i do think that the democrats are quite right that the house has an obligation to pursue an investigation of behavior that is this severe that severely undercuts american interests both domestically and abroad and i think
5:06 am
without the investigation the facts would not have been brought forward and indeed in terms of president trump he certainly wants to try and avoid being a president that historically will have written against him will be a president that. will be impeached old potentially be impeached how worried is the white house in the oval office of just label it sells. well i don't know any more about that than you do certainly there have been reports that that is the case. but you know i again i have no special knowledge on that point well in the fold then the focus then moves to the election in 2020 and obviously if this drags all one wonders how much of the agenda will be taken up in terms of the impeachment what sort of impact it will have on the voting public all issues such as health care education and defense take back the.
5:07 am
my suspicion is that by the time we get around to a year from now when the election is or 11 months from now when the election is due to occur i think that the impeachment controversy will have receded considerably from the public mind i think that's one of the reasons why the democrats feel 2 things at this point one i think they feel a genuine constitutional obligation to pursue this investigation to its logical conclusion to expose the facts to be american public to defend in my view the constitutional order but they also recognize that there are unlikely to be able to secure the removal of this president through the impeachment process and they want to do what they need to do do it expeditiously and then allow people to focus on the upcoming election i think the impeachment process and the evidence that's been produced it will will be a factor but i think that the more general issues that you describe i think will
5:08 am
begin to predominate in terms of the relationship that the president has with. the national security agency with the military with the pentagon. in terms of the processes the witnesses that are come forward the testimony that we've heard. what sort of schism has been created between the executive office and the rest to all those you might say the establishment and schism as the be rectified in in in the experiences that we are all witnessing right now. well i don't think i think you're certainly right that there is a a huge schism there is a huge disconnect between the office of the president and certainly virtually everyone else who is a competent career professional or and even a indeed a cop and a political appointee and the current administration mr trump is pursuing his own private interests and doing so often without facts or based on
5:09 am
speculation or conspiracy theories or information it gets from heaven knows where and the result of that of course is not only to produce bad policy as it certainly did in the case of ukraine but also to profoundly disillusion undermine the the guts of the american government the public servants that actually make it make it run i don't think that that division is going to be he'll bowl so long as he's president the more profound concern going forward is assuming as i hope will be the case that mr trump will no longer be the president in 2021 that the question is whether whether or not the country can and can rebuild the government from the inside and restore the public servants faith that their expertise is going to be valued that they're going to be listened to and that they're going to be able to serve the american the american public's interests. without being foolishly 2nd
5:10 am
guessed by a man who is who has seems predominately have his own interests in mind and is also staggering the way ignorant about the world around him so the fascinating tons of issues that we will be watching very carefully from the u.s. for the moment to fight them and thanks so much for joining us. the u.s. has stepped up its threat of sanctions against senior chinese communists over the threat of weaken muslims the house of representatives has followed the senate in passing a bill calling on president trump to condemn abuses against the minority group it urges the closure of detention camps in the north western region. and names members of jones' communist party who washington say are responsible for abuses china has urged the us to stop the bill from becoming law. last month highly classified chinese government documents were leaked giving a stark insight into the mass detention of ethnic minorities rights group estimates
5:11 am
that more than a 1000000 have been locked up in camps in the region the leaked papers of tamed and verified by the international consortium of investigative journalists shows that every aspect of camp live is controlled from the frequency of toilet used to haircuts the chinese government rejected the documents as fake news it insists the centers are for education and vocational training get some more on this market respondent she have returns he joins me now from our washington news center she has been i mean more legislation that trump really perhaps was pressed to agree on all fours to act on because of those sort of the ground well of support for the week is in the political spectrum there in washington. we haven't agreed on this one yet this is only just passed the house but it's another emphatic vote very similar to that that we saw in support of the hong kong protesters 407 to one bipartisan support for this bill condemning the treatment of muslims and challenging calling
5:12 am
for the closure of those camps you were just you just referencing also battling the export of surveillance equipment to the u.s. u.s. companies heavily involved in that also calling for the secretary of state to come up with a report with its assessment the state department assessment of what's going on what's at what what scale of human rights abuses there is in the view of the state department and crucially as you also mention. giving the white house 120 days to come back to congress with a list of people to sanction who they feel are responsible for the alleged human rights abuses that that is the key part that that would mean that something i mean the u.s. actually sanctioning senior members of the politburo of the chinese communist party is a pretty big deal as you can imagine having said that then as we saw with the signing of the hong kong legislation last week the president does have an out when it comes to that he can sign this and it looks like because there's such
5:13 am
a veto proof majority in both the house and the senate for this legislation he may have no choice but to sign it but he can sign it but have a signing statement which says he reserves the right not to sanction anyone because of national security in the end the president is in charge of foreign policy as far as u.s. national security is concerned so he can decline to in fact sanction anyone but this still has a few more steps to go there before it reaches the president this is actually a modified version of what was passed in the senate in september a stronger version so this has to go back to the senate and a compromise version has to be reached upon and voted upon and then it gets the president but because of the strength of the bipartisan majority in both the house and senate that is likely to move quite quickly perhaps the president does have an out of this could end up being rather symbolic although very deeply symbolic of course all plays really into the friction that there is between china and the u.s. at the moment and of course there are all these trade talks a lot of how it's all going to sit into that because you know political sort of separate politics and trade at the moment when it comes to china and the u.s.
5:14 am
. yet already this week of trump knowledge that the hong kong legislation didn't make the boat the trade talks any easier however when china did respond to the hong kong legislation this week it was moving relatively subdued it was about on u.s. military aircraft and ships from entering hong kong and more restrictions on u.s. n.g.o.s in hong kong they weren't exactly being treated terribly well anyway so there's a sense that there's a bit more pragmatism in beijing about all this is these were veto proof majority in congress had much choice he did have he does have that signing statement so we'll have to see whether whether both sides really want to avoid the next the next big deadline december the 15th when more u.s. tariffs will be slapped onto chinese consumer goods perhaps we'll see more pragmatism although there's talk right now of diplomatic visas being affected for the u.s. from beijing well for the update thanks. in washington d.c. . plenty more ahead here on the al-jazeera news hour including anger frustration in

democratic republic of congo the state of security as more people are returning and killed. devastation to more children die as a measles outbreak ravages the tiny south pacific island of sama. and in sports heavyweight boxers and junior and in the job sure work out for the 1st time in the saudi capital. of such days we. are appearing in the world's biggest alliance leaders in the united kingdom for the 70th anniversary of nato and divisions are becoming clear the u.s. and french presidents have disagreed on several points including nato has role and the return of foreign fighters from syria are diplomatic editor james bays has more . it's supposed to be nato 70th birthday but there's no celebration
5:16 am
instead an atmosphere of disagreement and division with the u.s. president who once called the alliance obsolete now saying he fears that france might leave nato and i heard. a lot of different we're. very proud. because this. is a very very very nasty state to essentially 20. 1 of the countries those comments were particularly pointed as president trumps next public meeting was with the french president that were uncomfortable moments when they were asked about european countries including france not taking back their nationals no prisoners in syria having fought for eisel. would you like some nice isis fighters you could give them you you could take everyone you want to take
5:17 am
a. very large number fight with them the wrong are focused on the. community. you have foreign fighters coming in from europe. all of them we have in the region the number one problem of the foreign fighters this is the ice cream. and you have more fighters use is the reason. this is where it is where the decision is ours where the green party enters over. ok the trouble disagreements are not the only ones at this summit the french leader attacked turkey because of its recent incursion targeting the kurds in northern syria and to see. this in the field of the county. we needed to keep. things now finding against those who fight with us. charlotte. turk is president later met with
5:18 am
his u.k. host prime minister johnson as well as president marc raul and the german chancellor merkel he's threatening to block nato has plans to protect poland and the baltic states unless others agree with him on syria. but i don't differ that despite all the differences which exist and which we have to address also have to discuss the future of nato and things we have in common strategically but i am relatively optimistic about this meeting on top of all the other problems i'm told there is currently considerable tension between chancellor merkel and president mark roll over european defense and europe's role in the state of the alliance right now is full of division it is a multi-dimensional mess. london. after a day of tense exchanges nato leaders gathered for a reception buckingham palace they were welcomed by queen elizabeth but disapproval
5:19 am
of the alliance hasn't just come from world leaders they were also protests in london against the nato meeting that in baba has more. with this protest has brought together people campaigning on a variety of issues denouncing donald trump some of them belong to antiwar groups like the stop the war coalition on the campaign for nuclear disarmament denouncing nato and its policies there are kurdish and pro kurdish protesters here. protesting the actions of president do on particularly in syria but it symbolically being led by people who work for britain's national health service the n.h.s. the public health system which according to the protesters is under threat in the future in a trade deal between president trump and prime minister johnson bear saying 30 it's clear that the u.s. in such a trade deal would put pressure on the on britain to allow greater access for
5:20 am
american pharmaceutical companies to sell their products at a higher price boris johnson says that's nonsense that the n.h.s. would not be for sale this is crucial because it's the number $1.00 issue that the public identified in the election campaign even ahead of brecht's it at the moment the conservatives are around 10 percent ahead in the opinion polls but if there is a sweep up if president chum does actually go further in his statements that could harm boris johnson's prospects. they're all says it security forces shot and killed protesters during demonstrations against petrol price rises state television describes the rioters disputes figures that the toll was as high as $200.00 reports from the capital. iran has acknowledged what many here already know security services killed protesters during demonstrations last month mass and that in just 8 media broadcast the iranian government's side its report describes some
5:21 am
of those involved in the protests as writers and thugs armed with firearms and knives in the southwestern city of musharraf there are media reports alleging a massacre took place but iran says they were dealing with separatist elements who had an ulterior motive i got to. zain if the military forces and police didn't interfere not only the lives of people in this region would have been in danger but also the imports of essential goods into the country from port would have been jeopardized since the number of trucks had been reduced to 400 a day this caused the security forces and the police to get involved to protect the peace for the people the authorities insist some protesters were armed and were firing at security services. to the rights are where the hostile groups were hiding in shooting at the police but thank god the armed forces vigilantly came to the fields and foiled their plot. it's still unclear how many people were killed
5:22 am
amnesty international say it's more than $200.00 a figure the government rejects so. i can tell you that the numbers and figures given by hostile groups about the deaths in iran's recent protests a shia lies real statistics seriously different from what they are now it's and numbers are far less than what they climbed. but united states president donald trump had his own figures a rare. thousands of people right now as we speak that's why they are huge in the international scene which goes. the violence is the worst the country has witnessed for decades the u.s. presence intervention will not be welcome here in iran it will further fuel the government's claim that forces were behind some of the troubles there's a feeling here that the actual number of those killed will eventually be known for the rain and government says security forces acted to protect lives but some
5:23 am

5:25 am
provisional government also has reports that some protesters are armed with machetes and clubs. we know it has taken a long time for the security forces to. and the group has caused a lot of harm and it's causing tension within the population but. the problem even some politicians telling the group my my to join in the protests the only solution is to support the military but the sentiment by many protesters is that they would. here are angry by the military claiming that the protests in beni have been infiltrated by armed people they say they're. trying to really follow the protesters and deflect attention of what is really going on in that region they say there is genuine anger and frustration about the state of security and this is an issue that needs to be addressed. kathleen.
