5:03 am
a political rival in exchange for military aid it would be impeachable but the scholar wednesday's sole republican witness testified the case against trump has not been proven this would be the 1st impeachment in history where there would be considerable debate in my view not compelling evidence of the commission of a crime more than a dozen white house and state department professionals have testified that trump used the power of his office to pressure ukraine to open an investigation into joe biden a potential political rival in the upcoming us presidential election the house intelligence committee drafted a report saying there was overwhelming evidence for this including trump's own words in a phone call with the president of ukraine that's not politics as usual at least not in the united states or not in any mature democracy trump says the law professors called by democrats right. resents the liberal left but he declined to
5:04 am
testify himself and refused to send white house attorneys to represent his case for in a sense what they're doing is a very bad thing for our country it's of no merit and the republican party has never been more unified ever trump is counting on republicans who control the senate to acquit him of wrongdoing in an eventual impeachment trial. castro al-jazeera washington all speaking after the hearing the chairman of the house judiciary committee democrat jerry nadler the evidence presented so far is overwhelming this situation meets or 3 test the president committed impeachable offenses they were important impeachable offenses they go to the constitute the heart of our constitutional republic they threaten the survival of democracy itself in the integrity of free elections and a majority of the people and of the end of the house i believe i understand that.

but the top republican on the committee doug collins says the facts are on their side when you talk about facts being undisputed these facts are disputed not just disputed they're actually contradicted so we have no problem final subs this president did nothing wrong there was nothing that we found as impeachable he did not do anything wrong so i've said all along it's easy for us to make the arm up because the process is terrible and the facts are on our side how he lets me in is a former u.s. justice department official and the host of talking feds podcast i spoke to him earlier and i asked him what happens next. i think things were divided along partisan lines in the clinton impeachment but everybody understood the facts and the need to confront but here only one side seems to see this as important and grave how how will it proceed from here i expect you know it's just along party lines as it did for during the overwhelming presentation of facts before the
5:06 am
intelligence committee and the republicans i think are telegraphing their content to make it a procedural circus and not to take it seriously and if they do it that way and particularly in the senate the democrats efforts to make it a serious national sort of civics discussion are limited. the pentagon says the u.s. will ship has cut should a vessel with missile parts believed to be linked to iran the seizure was made in the middle of the new arabian sea and the crew has been transferred to the emmy coast go to washington accuses to haul of illegally smuggling arms to. the fighting the yemeni government. the nato summit has ended with leaders uniting behind common commitments despite the meeting highlighting bitter divisions leaders agreed on issues like russia and china and settled a major stumbling block when turkey dropped its objection to nato baltic defense

5:09 am
what to do today the question it all raises is central to what nato is and what it exists for what happens to an alliance built on collective defense when that collective commitment that spirit of unity isn't just solid as some would like it to be nato member turkey's president richard tired earlier on earlier demanded that the kurds abandoned by trump in northern syria be recognized as what he called terrorists or he'd veto alliance efforts to bolster eastern defenses against russia this was a threat that represented a fracturing of nato's central accord is what trump and macron do seem to agree on but many others don't that russia is no longer the enemy it was and while nato is focus has widened to include china cyber security hybrid warfare the alliance can't hide from the difficult truth that multiple challenges mean multiple conflicting interests undermining the unity they'd come here to celebrate going to al-jazeera

5:26 am
even at the lower price the company's overvalued analysts say there's been tension between the saudi government's valuation ambitions and what western investors are willing to pay the initial estimates that were given by the saudi leadership hasn't been proven yet and so that's what i mean by taking the feedback going back and seeing if they can make those numbers work or not saudi arabia derives most of its money from oil exports and says it will use the income from its public listing to diversify its economy but a recent drone attack on 2 of its facilities the rebels in yemen said they carried out took out more than half of the kingdom's oil production and cause major concern among international investors so far the stock listing is only available for saudis and nationals in the arab states of the g.c.c. and that too will be kept by the to the exchange saudi aramco is international listing was the crown jewel of prince mohammed bin cell man's vision 2030 an ambitious project to take saudi arabia into the future without an over reliance on

5:32 am
talk about you're watching officers news with me said holroyd to remind of our top story legal experts invited by u.s. democrats have testified that president donald trump has committed impeachable offenses but a false scholar called by the republicans that there's no evidence of a clear criminal act also nato summit has ended with some agreement on france russia and china but it's been overshadowed by personal riles street leaders at the meeting as highlighted bitter divisions on several major issues. and summer is all about him aspects. nation program in an attempt to stem is fast growing measles crisis 62 people have died from the disease with more than 150 new cases every day . more on our top story of the hearings into whether to impeach president trump chris eagleton is the assistant professor of government at the school of public affairs at the american university and he joins me now from washington d.c.
5:33 am
good to have you with us on the program so let's begin with the statements made outside to the press corps after sort of the 1st day of hearings at the house judiciary committee each side really setting up their stall for the public wouldn't you say well yes but it's important no this is not an ordinary proceeding i think professor carlin said it well whether what the president allege of done strikes at the heart of our democracy and our elections and really if it isn't stopped the integrity of our elections will be undermined this is a really critical moment for our democracy so is there a benefit then to these proceedings been rushed through or dragged out to either or both parties. well i wouldn't say they're being rushed through there have been weeks of hearings i think about 2 months now the investigations are going on a 3 page report was just released yesterday but i think most importantly this is an emergency what the president is alleged to have done and for all we know he's continuing it he's made public statements that effect is to attack the election
5:34 am
that's going on right now our campaign has already begun the 2020 election you can't wait it's an emergency and in a functioning system the republicans would stand with the democrats to defend our elections what we're seeing here is a failed system and really what i was struck by as i was watching the hearings today is 2 years from now 5 years from now it might not be possible to have hearings like this in the united states anymore because our democracy is really badly at risk and may not survive many analysts have their own opinions about whether the democracy is badly at risk or is ok i mean how does this actually resonate in your opinion with the public i mean other hearings now attracting their attention or will they only really attract attention once you might say they get to the set it to we expect some sort of debate in the senate eventually it's hard to say i mean polling shows that the rules recent polling i've shown is 40 percent of the public thinks the president should be impeached and 43 percent says no i don't know how closely people are following people are pretty divided but again what
5:35 am
should happen here is republicans should say this is not a partisan issue as republicans did in 1074 the president nixon this goes beyond partisanship if president can do this democratic presidents can do this republican presidents can do in the future it will mean that any president can ask foreign countries to attack our election that can't be that's not compatible with a democracy so what happens and really when republican representatives on the committee very clear as they were today that they felt they didn't get as much of a chance to have their say they are adamant that they will get their say is it a psychological way to say to that they support that the democrats are playing dirty. they're not acting in good faith i'm sorry to say that it's not a partisan observation doesn't have to do with republicans or democrats there's no way to defend what the president has done it's there in black and white we've seen the transcript of his call july 25th call when he says i need a favor from ukraine as he's talking about delivering military aid to the witnesses
5:36 am
testified to the same think investors on that said there was a quid pro quo other witnesses testify that they saw the quid pro quo there's no way to defend this republicans are hoping and i think they'll succeed that they can simply play this out and as you say keep the peace with the president the place is with him no matter what and sorry to say it's more like a cult than a regular political party at this point and i think they'll succeed and i think the only way to stop this president will be the election in 2020 the very election that he is attacking in terms of the proceedings over the next few days and weeks chris what should we be looking for or keeping it close to the ground as to the way the situation could change or could pivot one way or the other. so the important thing will be will republicans move will republicans take action right now there's no evidence that they will. but one hopes are well i guess one waits every day to say if that will happen i say one hopes because if you support a constitutional democracy that must happen i see no evidence right now but of
5:37 am
course that's what i'll wait for and the key question will be in the senate you need to get 20 republicans to support impeachment to remove the president from office right now i see no evidence that will happen but i would certainly watch for that that's the key question obviously what does happen chris thanks very much for your insight chris and there in washington d.c. thank you. israel is planning to build a new settlement in hebron the largest city in the occupied west bank the area is considered sacred by both muslims and jews the illegal settlements in occupied palestinian territories have been one of the most contentious issues in the conflict between 167 and 2017 israel built more than 200 illegal settlements in the occupied west bank and their jurisdiction goes far beyond the homes and estimated 620000 israelis live in these illegal settlements it's also built several enclaves in palestinian neighborhoods in occupied east jerusalem home to more than 215000
5:38 am
israeli settlers the settlements violate international law and large numbers of israelis living in occupied territories complicate efforts to establish a palestinian state our correspondent in one car reports from the divided city of hebron this was once a fertile farmland on palestinian territory providing homes and livelihoods for the villagers now it's an israeli military protected construction site linking it to settlements illegal under international law the construction has divided the palestinian village a bit all marked in a half well it's completed the villages won't be able to reach their land on the other side of the bypass road legally that land still belongs to the palestinian villages practically speaking there will be no way they can farm it if they cannot reach it around the island with it when i realize my land had gone and pain my chest i inherited this land from my father as he did from he's an overnight has gun
5:39 am
i wanted to give it to my children but instead we became like an fiji's with our property these really ultra g.'s of offer compensation but that's been rejected by the palestinians the construction is going full speed ahead despite a palestinian challenge in an israeli court to stop it the case is ongoing. improving and linking the settlements as part of an israeli policy aimed at encouraging its citizens to move to the occupied west bank however it's often the palestinians that pay the price when land is confiscated and split by the settlements. nowhere is it more evident than in the divided on city of hebron where palestinian leader. there are calls now by israeli politicians to bulldoze market and build houses for a new wave of israeli settlers the markets remained empty since the mid ninety's when israeli settler killed $29.00 palestinians and the israeli government forced the remaining palestinians to leave the area some jewish families claim ownership
5:40 am
of the market going back to 929 colors of why she owns one of the shops in the market place this is as close as he's allowed to get to it by the israeli army. i think it's going to get worse for him today they want to take the market tomorrow they will take over nearby streets and then what perhaps they will take over more properties nothing seems to stop this israeli government if this market place is destroyed and more homes for settlers are built it will already divide this very fractured city now there are some 800 settlers here in the city back to by the israeli army and they dominate the lives of about 250000 palestinians m.r. carney. tens of thousands of people have joined mass antigovernment demonstrations in colombia unions and student groups called the nation wants strikes after talks with the government failed is the 3rd strife in 2 weeks protesters angry at
