reimagining plastic. on al-jazeera. reports suggest democrats in the u.s. house of representatives have agreed to present 2 articles of impeachment against president trump that will be unveiled later on say. hello welcome to al-jazeera live from doha i'm dennis also coming up the presidents of ukraine and russia agree on another cease fire but there's still more to be done to end the 5 year conflict that's claimed 14000 lives. celebrations in argentina ahead of the official return of the peronist party plus. know what
6:01 am
that would be boycott. this is crazy. stuff that's called. the man who inspired the ice bucket challenge that went global and raised hundreds of millions of dollars for medical research has died. but 1st new ripples coming from the usa the democrats in the lower house of congress have decided to present articles of impeachment in their bid to remove president trump from office and this follows what was expected to be the last public hearing before the articles are announced and go live to mike hanna now our correspondent who's in washington so we understand them from these reports mike that there are 2 separate articles in of impeachment that the democrats feel will
6:02 am
lead to my success. indeed yes so what's happened is that a nancy pelosi the speaker of the house has met with the committee chairman from the house in the course of the evening it has been decided that there will be a formal announcement as to what the impact articles of impeachment are in coming hours however you washington post an associated press report quoting officials associated with the democrats saying that there will be 2 articles of impeachment one will be an abuse of power article the 2nd will be an obstruction of congress article now if these reports are indeed correct this would indicate a very narrow form of impeachment focusing on the telephone call to the ukraine and president trump alleged to terms a to use political leverage or economic leverage to get political information on an opponent in the 2020 election the obstruction of congress clause would pertain to
6:03 am
the white house's attempts to have nothing to do with the investigation into that phone call and into president trump's actions regarding the campaign its refusal to provide witnesses to provide interviews or documents that congress had subpoenaed so these are the 2 articles according to several officials that will be announced formally in the course of coming hours that will be the articles of impeachment against president trump all right mike and desist does this also the timetable the date by which we can expect this to be moved to the senate and there will be an impeachment trial. well the fact that they've already apparently agreed on these articles of impeachment would appear that this is going according to that very expedited timetable that the democrats have been wanting in other words one could expect a vote in the judiciary committee as soon as thursday they would vote on the actual
6:04 am
impeachment clauses that would be followed then by a full floor vote in the coming week so that would be before christmas on the articles of impeachment where the house would recommend that these in articles of impeachment go ahead that for then lead to early in the new year a trial taking place in the senate under the chairmanship of the chief justice so it would appear that if indeed these articles have been agreed on the 2 separate articles then this is going to be a pretty speedy process in terms of getting it through the house it's going to take a lot longer once it hits a trial and if it hits a trial in the senate marty mike thanks for that mike hanna our correspondent live in washington well more now on monday's public hearing of the house judicial committee from another of our correspondents in washington heidi joe castra. fireworks inside of monday's impeachment hearing likely to last before the house
6:05 am
judiciary committee draft articles of impeachment came not just from protesters but also republican members committed to showing that they believe the proceedings against trump are a sham. schedule not to consider major ruling if the order to appeal to men was going to try to overturn the results of an election were not elected to the gentleman and the witnesses were attorneys for both parties and though the facts were the same that trump froze military assistance to ukraine then asked its president to launch investigations into trump's political opponents the interpretations of those facts couldn't be more different president trump used the power. hours of government for a domestic political airing to put his political interests above that of the nation and each a president whose $63000000.00 people voted for over 8 lines in a call transcript is boni it's unclear who the lawyers are trying to convince
6:06 am
members of the house judiciary committee made up their minds long ago along party lines democrats hold the majority and will draft articles of impeachment likely by next week if the president puts himself before the country evaluates a president's most basic responsibility he breaks his oath to the american people if he puts himself before the country in a manner that threatens our democracy and our oath our promise to the american people requires us to come to the defense of the nation trumps attorneys declined an invitation to attend the hearing signaling deliberately defend the president before the senate in a likely trial in january and it's a disgrace to our country that's not how things republicans hold the senate majority which means that obviously a conviction in the sun will fall well short of the 2 thirds requirement to remove president trump from office and i think you would likely expect that it would be entirely a partisan vote outside the ivory domes of the u.s.
6:07 am
capitol polls show the american public is also strongly divided by party voters who identify as democrats strongly support the impeachment republicans are strongly opposed that about split the population evenly in halves with opinions unchanged since the beginning of this impeachment inquiry republicans say trump spate should be decided by the people in next year's elections but democrats say because trump is accused of soliciting foreign interference in those very elections he must be held accountable now heidi joe castro al-jazeera washington. a u.s. what's says it's found no evidence of political bias in the f.b.i.'s investigation of connections between president donald trump's presidential campaign and russia but the u.s. justice department did find a number of areas in how the f.b.i. handled the inquiry al-jazeera as patty culhane reports. it's been a bit of
6:08 am
a mantra from the u.s. president trying to discredit the investigation into his campaign's potential collusion with russia there was absolutely spying into my campaign to go a step further in my opinion it was illegal spying unprecedented spying now this report from the justice department's inspector general says it wasn't that the investigation was launched with credible information and that the people behind it did not have political bias or improper motivation a headline heralded by democrats. i think there's spying did occur but the head of the justice department the attorney general william barr is dismissing that conclusion sending out a statement writing the inspector general's report now makes clear that the f.b.i. launched an intrusive investigation of a u.s. presidential campaign and the thinnest of suspicions that in my view were
6:09 am
insufficient to justify the steps taken the report says the f.b.i. did make mistakes agents withheld a lot of information about carter page a trump aide when trying to get surveillance on him approved that's something the president and his allies are focusing on instead this was an attempted overthrow and a lot of people were in on it. and they got caught they got caught red handed i look forward 'd to the durham report which is coming out in the not too distant future it's got his own information which is this information plus plus plus the president disregarding what the report actually says pinning his hopes on the next one a u.s. attorney has been tasked to prove what the president says is true even though this one after reading a 1000000 documents and interviewing 170 of the key people involved insist it isn't patty calling al-jazeera washington. russia and ukraine if agreed to implement

6:18 am
for the good of the child seats and for the integrity of the sport but it shows in stage a different route crucially this plan applies only to the russian flag on them until 9 meaning controversially russian athletes and teams can still compete under a neutral flag this was the case that the $26.00 team with a olympics and winter games in pune trying last year it's not clear yet as to how this would work at the world cup should they qualify that same representing russia cannot participate but i'd say most neutral if there's a mechanism put in place and neutral they can apply disappeared on a neutral basis not this represents to suppression this won't satisfy waters' own athletes committee which believes only a blanket ban of all washing not that it's a problem that is now dragged on for more than 5 years straight back doping by russia emerged after this such a winter olympics in 24 to effectively poisoning the guns to show medal winning

prowess under president putin russia's doping authority has 21 days to appeal the latest bond with the court of arbitration in switzerland because the head of research admits there are problems and is calling for reform just means that we need to change our approach there is no other way because we need to allow our athletes to live the filling lives in sport stop making life a nightmare for athletes. there are many. who don't welcome water as punishment yes there is a new you know this is a biased decision a politically motivated decision in my opinion the russian biathlon union and russian sports as a whole have contributed greatly to the anti doping program likely we took every test everything our athletes have been checked all the way through and no concerns have been raised whatever happens in an appeal there are legal loopholes for russia to retain rights to host events the already been a great you wife is euro 2020 football games and some unlikely to be moved because

6:29 am
starting to shift now and we're beginning to see this i mean just one right after the other after the other i think this is a very strong precedence that's been set most especially in this industry that is so surrounded by the aspect of external beauty what we're seeing now as young girls are able to look up and see women who look just like themselves i mean for myself over 30 years ago when i 1st got started in the pageant industry there weren't referring many women at all that looked like me so i was just really a dream and it seemed as though it was something that was unattainable but now we look at me see women with curly hair a bit with dark skin that well you know with with these features that aren't so if you you know if you will maybe what mommy here is traditional beauty what do young girls look at is they're looking and they're seeing a mirror image of themselves and i think it gives them a whole and not just hope that empty hope for empty pipe dreams but something that is absolutely more attainable i think this is incredible for young women of color
