2:01 am
a new zealand volcanic island were 8 people are still missing their dad. and his prime minister received the nobel peace prize but shares the credit with his eritrean counterpart. the democratic leaders in the u.s. house of representatives have published 2 articles of impeachment against president all trump accusing him of betraying the nation the charges or abuse of power and obstruction of congress both chairman from donald trump's efforts to pressure ukraine to interfere in the 2020 alexion castro begins our coverage from washington d.c. . standing before a portrait of one of the nation's founding fathers george washington house democratic leaders made a historic announcement today in service to our duty to the constitution and to our country. the house committee on the judiciary is introducing 2 articles of
2:02 am
impeachment charging the president of the united states donald j. drum with committing high crimes and misdemeanors the 1st article is abuse of power for withholding security aid and a white house visit with ukraine's leader in exchange for political investigations that would benefit trump's reelection the 2nd obstruction of congress for refusing to cooperate with impeachment investigators the evidence is every bit as strong that president trump has obstructed congress fully without precedent and without basis in law if allowed to stand it would decimate congress's ability to conduct oversight of this president or any other in the future trump is only the 4th u.s. president to have impeachment proceed this far he denies all wrongdoing tweeting during the democrats' announcement witch hunt democrats say the evidence against trump is damning it includes testimony from more than a dozen witnesses and a white house call summary showing trump asked ukraine to launch investigations
2:03 am
into his political rivals republicans though say that's not enough to remove a president they're not impeaching the president because they they can list and impeachable offense they're impeaching him because they're afraid he will get reelected that's not why you have the power of impeachment that's the abuse of power democrats are keeping the impeachment articles narrowly focused on trump's recent conduct with ukraine they decided not to charge the president for trying to stop the previous moller investigation that examine whether his campaign had colluded with russia in the last presidential election in less than a year's time a deeply divided america will return to the polls that will be after trump's impeachment trial in the senate where he'll likely be acquitted by his fellow republicans democrats say despite the slim chance of removal doing nothing or waiting what amounts to complicity with trump's misconduct the argument why don't
2:04 am
you just wait amounts to this. why don't you just let him cheat in one more election why not let him cheat just one more time democrats say trump remains a threat to the upcoming elections and to his own country hi joe castro al-jazeera washington talk to alan baron he's a former special impeachment counsel to the u.s. house of representatives he joins us from washington d.c. thank you so much for your time so even among those who even along those who support impeachment there's been a little bit of debate on how many impeachment counts to put out there obviously too was what was settled upon do you agree with that being too yes i do you have the choice of core of course of adding perhaps 2 maybe even 3 more counts i'm not sure it is suits anyone's purpose to do that and clearly this issue has been made
2:05 am
that they keep it so that lean and mean so to speak it'll be easier to understand it will be more focused and that's a very legitimate decision that the democrats have made you know the facts really aren't in dispute i mean they're not is this about what members of congress feel about the abuse of power feel about what president trump clearly did and made it to himself this is about how they feel about it not necessarily the whether or not he did it well. i think one thing we have to recognize is how political the whole process is and tell they feel about it i'm not sure that that really gets us to that it's really a question why would i have the votes you know. what maybe i didn't they didn't make that clear but yes it right who has the votes but but it doesn't come down to all republicans ok with what these facts are. it
2:06 am
apparently i mean there is no crack in the republican wall nobody seems to be coming over to the democrats at this point. it's in some ways it's shocking because if you analyze the facts and you take a look for example at the richard nixon near impeachment he wrote he resigned before he could be impeached that was essentially you know with a 3rd rate burglary and attempt to cover up all of it domestic didn't involve any foreign countries here we're talking about holding up duly authorized appropriations for an ally that is being attacked by the russians and it's being held up so that the president can get a leg up on the next election i mean if we want to talk about what's more serious i think there's no comparison carl bernstein obviously reporter who helped break the story in watergate he said a few weeks ago that a difference that he sees between what happened with the knicks and the impeachment
2:07 am
and this is that he said that at that back then he felt that republicans were actually trying to get to the truth and that now he sees a breakdown in that process where all of congress is actually trying to get to the truth so you agree with that assessment i really do i think what went on in the 1970 s. versus where we are today it is so much more polarized at least back then i mean the republicans were looking out for their side the democrats were looking out for their side with there were people who were willing to reach across the aisle and try to see the problem from a broader perspective than there specific religious loyalty to their party you don't see any of that today it's very sad really well we appreciate your insight considering you're a former special impeachment counsel you are the person to talk to and mr allen barron thank you very much thank you us presidents actually of
2:08 am
state have both given a stern warning to russia's foreign minister not to interfere in the 2020 presidential election cycle of office in washington for talks and his 1st visit to the u.s. since 2007 tane had a cool hand reports. it had all the pleasantries expected when a foreign diplomat visits the us meetings a working lunch with the secretary of state but somewhat unusually the russian foreign minister got another meeting at the white house with the u.s. president earlier at the state department circle of robin might pompei o said their discussions pretty much spanned the globe from syria to venezuela ukraine to israel but it was the 2016 u.s. election and allegations that russia interfered in it that provoked some tough talk a flat denial from liberals who repeatedly said the white house was refusing to release correspondence to prove their innocence. is the clothes we read them all or report there is no proof of any collusion for the 4th time now our suggestion is to
2:09 am
publish that data that would show how russia responded through especial channels to review threats and cyber networks to show how russia responded to show how we suggested how to discuss this confidentially. i will publish all the documents we think appropriate we think we shared plenty of facts that show what happened in the 2016 election with our russian counterparts we don't think there's any mistake about what really transpired there but critics say tough words here at the state department are simply not enough they say the entire welcome sends a dangerous message i think we should not be receiving foreign minister of russia over. the state department it rewards their bad behavior it rewards the kind. of disruption you know democracy in russia has been gauged in and it will lead to more the visit comes at a time when the u.s. president is facing impeachment for allegedly trying to get ukraine to interfere in

2:12 am
in argentina in the last century it's coming back to power and that's why there is a balance if you will when other you are right in front of the presidential palace celebrate or you are today i bet at the bottom of this letter you know how close he was driving his own party headed toward the red ones and side was sworn in and later on he vet gave a very compelling speech in a way talking to all our agents was that they need to be united on the stuff you spoke about the possibility also this morning the judiciary the armed forces saying that the judiciary if you look at the persecutes of the whole needs in this country to mediate at least they should do so madiba deal was a little bit difficult economic situation that argentina is hold right now with the wrong 30 percent poverty rate 60 percent inflation rate the possibility of just told the opposite is the biggest challenge that i'm going to put him on this is
2:13 am
fading right now because argentina as the possibility of defaulting once again. more on the news hour including. after a deadly shooting at a u.s. air base authorities to suspend training for hundreds of saudi students. bosnia clear as a migrant camp unsuitable for a living will tell you why some people want to stay. and back on the test cricket map peter looks ahead to a story moment for pakistan. yemen and killed at least 5 people in somalia's capital mogadishu. it happened at a hotel near the presidential palace police killed 2 attackers and rescued dozens of people from the building has claimed responsibility and the u.s. at least 6 people have been killed in a shooting at a convenience store and jersey city the dead including at least one police officer
2:14 am

2:15 am
yeah it's quite significant it was a decision that was taken very carefully by the pentagon they're calling it a safety stand down and even though. there's a belief that this saudi national acted alone that's not entirely confirmed yet from the f.b.i. and that is why the pentagon is taking this decision to ground $303.00 to be exact saudi pilots that were training at 3 different military bases in florida on this training exchange with the u.s. military and while they can do class warm classroom work they are barred from flying at all while this investigation continues so it is quite significant this accounts for about 40 percent of all saudi military officials that are in the u.s. taking part in training are affected by this and the pentagon says that this grounding of these 303 saudi pilots is for now at least indefinite so gave have an
2:16 am
investigator say whether they believe any more saudi nationals were involved in this attack. they haven't said publicly yet but they are still investigating this and there's a lot of calls now for pentagon officials and u.s. officials to do a better job of vetting foreign military trainees that come to the u.s. for training there's about 5000 military people from over 150 countries that are in the u.s. right now having training at various different bases but of those about a 1000 are saudis so saudi sends a vast majority of military personnel here to be trained at least within this training program within this program so they're still looking into that they are cautioning that they have no evidence of correctly linking anyone else any other saudis nationals to this but they are certainly examining this because as we know 3 u.s. service members killed on a u.s. base in the u.s.
2:17 am
by a saudi national by any national for that matter certainly being taken very seriously by the pentagon and the and the f.b.i. they are investigating now our all of the saudi military personnel that are in the u.s. all right carol is on top of the latest from washington kate thank you. in mars later on sunset she has appeared at the international court of justice to defend her country against allegations of genocide the accusations stem from the 2017 military crackdown against her hang on muslims which forced nearly 3 quarters of a 1000000 people to flee to neighboring bangladesh when he has more from the hague . once a human rights and democracy campaigner myanmar's leader arrived at the international court of justice accused of being complicit in genocide the case against aung sun suu cheese government was brought by the gambia on behalf of the organization of islamic cooperation on the opening day it was alleged widespread abuses were carried out by me and my security forces against communities which they say amount

to genocide every day of enough. means that more people have been killed more woman i've been alive and more children i've been burnt alive for what crime on the because they were born different born of a different ways and to a different religion from doors who kill and weep them and for this honorable judges they have been made to pay the ultimate price genocide. as lawyer after lawyer laid out the game because case suchi watched and listened in the court room one could only imagine what was going through her mind as repeated allegations were made of rape torture and murder by soldiers it was very important for thir have to 30 inches away from people who are describing and really excruciating and painful detail of the horrible crimes of the burmese military that
2:19 am
happened on her watch me and says the raids on villages in rakhine state were legitimate counterterrorism operations the gambian say me and maher was and still is trying to wipe out an entire ethnic group in the short term the court is being asked to order me and mar to take steps to protect the rich from 3rd the genocidal acts the opening of this trial was ironically held on international human rights day day 2 will see me and my begin its defense led by aung san suu kyi herself it will be a remarkable sides a nobel peace prize winner detained for years by the military now defending them and herself against charges of genocide. the case before the i.c.j. is not a criminal trial meaning charges would be brought against individuals but given what she wants stood for also ensued she is effectively on trial along with the military and government as she left she was jeered bipartisan who came to see the
2:20 am
rigging finally have their day in the world's highest course when hey al jazeera the hague. urge heard earlier in the crackdown by myanmar's military has forced more than 700000 into crowded camps in neighboring bangladesh many there are following the case very closely as stephanie tucker reports the evidence of what happened to these people lie here among the many camps of cox's bazaar in southeastern bangladesh hundreds of thousands of tents hundreds and thousands of people each with horrifying stories stories of mass rapes of mass killings of people being locked inside their homes and burnt alive people here are aware of what is going on at the international court of justice they want justice but they're under no illusion that anything is going to happen fast it's been 2 and a half years since hundreds of thousands fled across the border across those mountains of me and more creating what is now the biggest refugee camp in the world the issue is now bangladesh no longer wants to host them in myanmar is given no
2:21 am
guarantees that they will be safe when they return these are people with no state with no identity with no papers and they are unwanted you could say by everyone this is a long term problem that needs to be addressed geoffrey nice is a human rights lawyer who worked at the international criminal tribunal for the former yugoslavia he says the case is an unusual and important. you have to bear in mind that states are very reluctant to accuse other states of genocide leave more reluctant to do anything about it that's meant that the genocide convention breaches of which are alleged here there's only be used 2 or 3 times since his creation in 948 and here you've got the unusual position of the strangest state for gambia is not involved in this taking the responsibility of taking. to this court and that's a really important thing both for the reinjure muslims who's suffering will now be tested in a court but it's also important for the rest of the world because other states may
2:22 am
follow on this examples this is not about prosecuting individuals for a crime that happens of course like the international criminal court or the ad hoc tribunals for rwanda and the former yugoslavia this is an allegation of breach of a treaty which various states of signed up and if the breaches prove the state is committing genocide then sanctions follow for that country and indeed compensation is possible but perhaps its most important effect is that if a country is found to have committed genocide it simply has to put its house in order or it will suffer international sanctions the o.p.'s prime minister has received the nobel peace prize for his efforts to foster peace with neighboring eritrea was recognized for his role in ending a decades long military standoff in reestablishing relations between the 2 countries and diplomatic editor james baines reports.

2:33 am
between all concerned parties and this was at the highest level as you have seen all of this state leaders have been hailing the air force exerted by his royal highness the emir of qatar and this mediation was still ongoing that the other axes involved the concerns raised by developing countries to separate the day to day cooperation between the respective member states this should be set aside and i mean defense cultural and economic cooperation which should be separated from the crisis itself. sudan's former leader omar al bashir has appeared in court on charges of plotting the 1909 coup which brought him to power it's the 1st time the ousted president has appeared before the investigation outside her prison where he is being detained the share was a brigadier at the time of the coup which toppled the elected government of the prime minister city calmady assure himself was overthrown in april after months of protests. 3 former political leaders have received lengthy prison sentences in algeria just 2 days before voters head to the polls anti-government protesters are

2:36 am
for constructive change. if that change doesn't take place the future cheerio could be an unstable one gauge. and investigation by the reuters news agency is found former white house executives help build a controversial spying unit for the united arab emirates the program was code named dread by the u.a.e. and was built to follow suspects in the years after the september 11th attacks order says the richard clarke a former counterterrorism chief for presidents clinton and george w. bush set up the program in 2008 with other americans and it was sanctioned by the us the unit's focus went further though targeting human rights activists and both the government of qatar and football's governing body faith over the 2022 world cup bid when its investigative reporter who broke the story for the reuters news agency and he joins us now from washington d.c. we appreciate your time very much so. how did this partnership if that's the right
2:37 am
word for it develop between the u.s. on this particular project. so i think it's very complicated and it's not clear whether it was directly like a partnership with the u.s. government or whether it was merely sanction but essentially americans have been going to us a to work as security consultants for quite some time and in this case the relationship dated all the way back to the gulf war when n.b.c. assisted. b.c. had assisted the united states being nominated for all the orders. during the during the 1st gulf war. b.z. and richard clarke had developed a very close relationship and when richard clarke left the government. he did a number of security projects. with richard clarke did a number of security projects together in the country and eventually he asked
2:38 am
richard clarke if he could help him to build this kind of hacking unit that became known as dread and project raven. i don't think that the u.s. government is are you know no go ahead. i don't think that the u.s. government while the u.s. government i think approved the project i don't i don't think the u.s. government or richard clarke ever had any understanding or intention of kind of where it would end up going i think in the beginning the goals were really limited to counterterrorism and that was something that was sort of in everybody's interest so over the years after rich so how concerning is that what you just said that that a program like this with the potential reach an implication to something that it's not really clear that the people who put it in place knew what they wanted to do or knew what they did they even know legally what they could do. yeah i think that the
2:39 am
legal lines of what they could do became very blurred and i think they became more blurred over the years you know as we previously reported you know this same project would end up targeting al-jazeera itself would end up targeting media figures human rights activists b.b.c. journalists women's rights activists all over the world and i don't think that that's you know what someone like richard clarke or or the state department have had ever necessarily intended the problem is with you when you create a surveillance program like this it's very easy for it to spiral out of control and become like sort of a tool for for those in power to go after their enemies so is there any type of oversight now or is this one of those things where the ship has sailed and it just is now i think the oversight i think technically you know is supposed to be monitored or supervised by a you know it's i think it's technically supposed to be monitored by the state
2:40 am
department but i think that there is very very little if any effective supervision or oversight over what it does i think that the people in u.s. government who 1st authorize it have very little clue about what's actually going on so having said that is there is there no way to stop it if there is no real accountability yeah i mean i think i think the u.s. government it's within their power to say that. you know former n.s.a. people can't go to work you know for the u.a.e. as hackers you know they can't stop the program from functioning but there's no reason that the u.s. government has to authorize and allow people who gave these kind of hacking skills to go and work for a monarchy that is you know using those skills to you know to stifle dissent all right. where the reuters news agency great reporting thank you joel thank you.
