9:02 pm
ah, hello, we begin this news hour in the united states where a political scandal involving classified documents is deepening. president joe biden has admitted a 2nd set has been found this time at his private residence in delaware. the documents are believed to be linked to biden's time as vice president, and they're reported to include u. s. intelligence memos and briefing materials linked to ukraine. iran and the united kingdom. or the 1st discovery was made at his former office at a washington think tank in november, but it was only publicly revealed on monday. biden says he is fully cooperating with the justice department. people know, i take classified documents and classified material seriously. i also said we're cooperating fully completed the justice department's review as part of that process
9:03 pm
. my lawyers reviewed other places, word documents of my of from my time as vice president were stored and they finished the review last night, they discovered a small number of documents, of classified markings, of storage areas in file cabinets in my home. and my, and my, my, my personal library or republicans are accusing biden of hypocrisy in their calling for congress to investigates. they knew this has happened to president biden before the election, but they kept the secret from the american public. he goes on 60 minutes, criticizes president, trump even knowing what he has done and he wasn't president at the time. now we find another location that it's at, but he refused to answer his press. secretary won't answer the questions we. you watched them leak photos of sitting out files, the president, trump, where's the photos? a president biden's documents. were those photos that he knowingly knew this
9:04 pm
happened going into a lecture going into interviews. this is what makes america not trust their government. so that's some of the reaction coming through. let's bring in our white house correspondent, kimberly how can she's joining us from washington d. c. and we do expect to hear from the u. s. justice department later the sour kimberly yeah, that's right. we are expecting to hear from the justice department. we're also expecting to hear from the white house press secretary upcoming as well. this is a white house that is attempting to quell this controversy, but certainly the questions seem to only be increasing given the fact that there was this discovery of this 1st batch of documents back in november. but the public is only learning about it now. and many are wondering why it took so long to reveal this revelation. and 2nd, now why we're just learning about this 2nd batch of documents. now, we also are hearing from some of the president's critics about questions about
9:05 pm
hypocrisy. given the fact that the president pointed the finger at former president donald trump, calling him totally irresponsible for his handling of classified documents, keeping them at his private residence. now we are learning that the same thing has occurred in the case of president biden. the fact that there are classified documents that have turned up at his private residence in his garage. now we do know with regard to this latest case, that in fact we have learned multiple aids of president biden, have been investigated by federal law enforcement to and they are asking how these documents could have ended up at the private residence. so we are watching very carefully to hear what the, when a justice will say when a statement is made. now, what is important to note at all of this is that the white house is insisting this case is very different from the case involving former president donald trump. and
9:06 pm
the distinction they say has to do with the turning over of these documents. that in the case of president biden, once the discovery was made, these documents were turned over to the national archive upon discovery. whereas the white house maintains that in the case of donald trump, that the documents were held to at mar lago, his private residence, and had to be subpoenaed. and that they say is very important distinction. so we will be watching very carefully, once again, the president maintaining that he doesn't even know what is in a these documents that he handbooks these very carefully. and that he takes this very seriously as again this is a white house trying to tap down these criticism even as there are growing questions and a growing controversy surrounding these classified material. okay, kimberly will check in with you later. thank you so much for the time being. ah,
9:07 pm
ukraine says it's forces are still holding on to the eastern town of solas are about the fighting as tough. the russian mercenary wagner group has led the offensive and says that it sees the town will got more on the wagner group in a report from dr. hamid's in a moment. but 1st, this is what the kremlin is saying, and it's actually warning against declaring a victory prematurely suggesting the fighting is not over. ukraine has said the battles in this area have been some of the bloodiest and the war so far. oh, she will lie. she is face in the solid, our direction, the back march. despite the difficult situation, ukrainian soldiers a desperately fighting rusher is trying to break through our defense lines without any luck to capture sola dahl and the enemy has high losses. the area outside the city is covered with the bodies of potions troops. the russians
9:08 pm
a moving over the own corpses. while the battle for a solid r assaults, mining town in the dumbass region could decide the fate of the neighboring town of loot. charles stratford has more from outside back newton, eastern ukraine. were about 5 kilometers outside of buff move solid hours around 10 kilometers in that direction. i'm not sure whether you're going to be able to pick this audio up, but there's a lot of heavy sharing going on all around this area. we in the last few minutes as well heard heavy machine gun fire. this is checkpoint, very close to us as well. we will prevent you from going any further towards that check point seems as if there are only allowing the military through i was here want to and a half, 3 months ago. and it's fair to say that the situation has dramatically changed since day. and i mean, we used to go down this road and into back moved, then it is a lot louder, a lot more heavy shelling than then. we've actually been speaking to soldiers this
9:09 pm
morning who beat inside buck mood and asking them about the situation in both moot and solid. they said to us that russian forces were in the center of solely dog. they said that they were in control of that salt mine. they described russian tanks in the center of solid r as well. they said that they were concerns appropriate studs that there are concerns among the ukrainian forces about possible escape routes for the ukrainian forces inside solid. all he said they were trying to do was protect a western root out of the town. we've been speaking to some of the soldiers behind his head this in this vehicle. these people have been getting ready to evacuate soldiers out of the moods. they say that there is still a lot of civilians inside, but we also how many civilians they were inside solid. all he estimated around $500.00 civilians still inside sorted as the fighting goes on. well,
9:10 pm
why not? group mercenaries have been on the front lines of the conflict and this part of eastern ukraine that i've been how many takes a closer look at the group. and it's role in this war and elsewhere. it's a small mining town, but one that could represent the 1st military breakthrough for russia in months. but the full front of the battle is the wagner group. a private military army fineness and equipped by to russian government is leader is the of gainey, pre gozine, a former convict, and close ally of president vladimir putin. he was recently seen in the suit lines of solid are. well this is eugene promotions like ship military mission. it's in backward disorder and huge. any per goshen is locked currently in a shadow war against the russian defense minister. hell graham channels are describing survey, shall i go. he's also clashing with that regional governors like to see petersburg governor as under beg law,
9:11 pm
and he's rumored half political aspiration as of his own. private military armies are unconstitutional and in russia. but the wagner group has grown to become an informal, an unofficial unit of the regular russian army de wagner. group 1st appeared during the annexation of crimea in 2014, in 2000. and 15 about 300 fighters were sent to the dumbass to support the russian backed separatists. the group has also operated in places like syria, central african republic, libya and malley, among others. initially, about 300 wagner contractors took part in the invasion of ukraine in february 2022 . their mission, according to ukraine and western officials, capture and killed president vladimir zalinski by march. their presence had triple to 1000. and the pentagon currently estimates at least $50000.00 fighters operating an eastern ukraine, of which only $10000.00
9:12 pm
r contractors. the remaining 40000 r convicts. russia initially cooled the invasion as special military operation that would quickly achieve the kremlin schools. but it stalled and russia had to re think it's military strategy. that's when the role of this private army became more prominent in easton ukraine with their support of the regular army. oh, how is it? great. they usually have some kind of divisional responsibility. russian that letter i'm it usually control after eric messiah, an i v. sion or this fucking group. i've used a special ais units, or soldiers, or norcross, i suppose, a stormy, or some of the defense horn too far. now ukrainian
9:13 pm
the group also enjoys a legal loophole which allows its missionaries to operate more freely. they are glorified in a recently released movie, funded by the group pulled the best in hell. even though the wagner's group has been accused of human rights abuses in several countries, it operates in them. if solid are fools, it will be to wait for the russian army to head south towards back moot and west doors, coma tours. it will also likely increase the popularity of the wagner group among russians fer, to blurring the lines between the private and regular armies. but abdul hamid al jazeera hunter mar, had on the al jazeera in his hour, including is really forces shoot a palestinian man yard. i'm a law the 4th palestinian killed in the occupied westbank in 24 hours. scientists call for urgent action warning. relentless climate change is putting the paris agreement in jeopardy. coming up in sport,
9:14 pm
the frenchman who has won 4 stages in a row at the to car rally, but just cannot close the gap on the overall liter. ah, but 1st thing you would, nighted nation secretary general has renewed his condemnation of russia's invasion of ukraine and attacked israel's expansion of settlements in palestinian territory . antonio gets harris was speaking at a debate on strengthening the role of law to maintain peace and security. the russian evasion of ukraine has created the humanitarian of human rights catastrophe, traumatized as innovation of children, and accelerated the global hood and energy crises, and the annexation of a states that he thought he by another states, dissolving from the strength or use of force, is a violation of the charter and of international law. 2022 was a deadly for most palestinians and israelis. we condemn all unlawful killings an x
9:15 pm
by extremists. that is no justification for federalism. at the same time, the expansion of settlements by israel, as well as on demolitions and the vixen's, are driving anger and despair. the palestinian health ministry says really forces have killed a palestinian man and occupied westbank 41 year old. same year aslan was shot in the columbia camp near at, on my lunch during an early morning grades iceland as the 4th palestinian to be killed in the occupied west bank. in the past 24 hours al jazeera abraham has more from roman law. we're here at the cemetery and yeah, we are the budget of 41 year old, send me it offline is being laid to rest. the father of a in boston is here. who would i get a few g counselors that was trying to listen to his son who was arrested by is

willie force was holding for him. so these are really forces came in. they arrested 17 year old drums the lawn and then they came back to the same area with his family living. and they were beating him up, hold them to the witnesses, he was calling for his father, father, father. and then as soon as i went on the rooftop to see what's happening with your shot and killed, his niece told me that the army didn't let them transform him to hospital because they said that the army needed to purchase another funeral took place in the north of the bank after 21 year old was killed by israeli forces while he was in a refugee camp. this gives you an idea about the tense situation that is unfolding here in the west bank. now according to the israeli forces, they were trying to arrest members of the lions den group. it's a group of young men fight these with arms in nablus. according to the lions
9:17 pm
den, they say that no one was arrested. be forced to say that they indeed succeeded in arrested arresting one of them then who lives in washington dc. that's the u. s. attorney general mary garland who's holding a briefing. let's get an initial investigation into the matter that i will describe to day. on the evening of november, 4th 2022. the national archives office of inspector general contacted a prosecutor at the department of justice. it informed him that the white house had notified the archives. the documents bearing classification markings were identified at the office of the pen biden's center for diplomacy and global engagement. located in washington dc. that office was not authorized for storage of classified documents. the prosecutor was also advised that those documents had been secured in an archives facility. on november 9th, the f. b,
9:18 pm
i commenced an assessment consistent with standard protocols to understand whether classified information had been mishandled in violation of federal law. on november 14th, pursuant to section $600.00 b of the special council regulations, i assigned us attorney louse to conduct an initial investigation to inform my decision whether to appoint a special counsel. mister lasha served as the us attorney in chicago since 2017. before that he spent more than a decade as an assistant us attorney. in that same office. i selected him to conduct the initial investigation because i was confident his experience would ensure that it will be done professionally and expeditiously. on december 20th present, biden's personal council informed mister lush, that additional documents bearing classification markings were identified in the
9:19 pm
garage or the president's private residence. in wilmington, delaware present, biden's counsel informed mister louse that those documents were among other records from the period of the president's service. as vice president the f. b. i went to the location and secured those documents on january 5th, 2023. mister louse brief me on the results of his initial investigation, advised me that further investigation by a special counsel was warranted. based on mister launch his initial investigation, i concluded that under the special council regulations, it was in the public interest to appoint special counsel. in the days since, while mister louse continued the investigation, the department identified mister her for appointment. a special council. this morning present biden's personal council called mister lush and stated that an additional document bearing classification markings was identified at the president's personal residence in wilmington,
9:20 pm
delaware. when i 1st contacted mister lauser about this matter, he said he could lead the initial investigation but would be unable to accept any longer term assignment because he would be leaving the department in early 2023 for the private sector. us attorney laotian, his team of prosecutors and agents have conducted this initial investigation with professionalism and speed. i am grateful to them. earlier today, i saw i signed an order appointing robert her a special counsel for the matter. i have just described. the document authorizes him to investigate whether any person or entity violated the law in connection with this matter. special counsel will not be subject to the day to day supervision of any official of the department, but he must comply with the regulations procedures and policies of the department. mr. her has a long and distinguished career as a prosecutor. in 2003, he joined the departments criminal division or he worked on counterterrorism.
9:21 pm
corporate fraud and appellate matters from 2007 until 2014 mister. her served as an assistant us attorney for the district of maryland, where he prosecuted matters ranging from violent crime to financial fraud. in 2017, mister her rejoined the department, as the principal associate deputy attorney general in 2018. he was nominated and confirm to serve as a us attorney for the district of maryland. as us attorney. he supervised some of the departments more important, national security, public corruption and other high profile matters. i will ensure that mister her receives all the resources he needs to conduct his work. as i've said before, i strongly believe that the normal processes of this department can handle all investigations with integrity. but under the regulations, extraordinary circumstances here require the appointment of
9:22 pm
a special counsel for this matter. this appointment under scores for the public, the department's commitment to both independence and accountability, and particularly sensitive matters and to making decisions. indisputably guided only by the facts and the law. i am confident that mister her will carry out his responsibility in an even handed and urgent matter and in accordance with the highest traditions of this department. thank you all president of all this investigation. so all right, that was the u. s. attorney general mary garland. he's just announced the appointment for special counsel to investigate presidential biden's handling of sensitive government documents that special council will be a robert her, he's been named as the counsel in the biden documents prob, so the us attorney general making that statement after 4 course classified documents were found in his private residence in delaware. most recently let's
9:23 pm
bring in our white house correspondent, kimberly hawkins. she's joining us from washington d. c. so a sorta but perhaps effective statement from mary garland this is certainly something that is designed to try restore public trust when public trust in government institutions really is at an all time low in the united states in a divided united states where people really have very little faith in their government and the feeling that oh, really can't be any trust in investigations. what this attorney general is doing is trying to restore that. so what he has done is appointed the special counsel, and this a read us attorney robert her who has been named the special counsels actually a former trump para u. s. attorney that is former president donald trump. ah. so the feeling is,
9:24 pm
is that this will give some sort of impartiality to this investigation. apparently he will start work in the coming days. he will be given special resources and will be given the opportunity to look into what in the words of merit garland, the attorney, general e are extraordinary circumstances and will be able to give an independent account and to restore public trust in what appears to be an erosion of public trust. so this is coming off the heels of comments from the republican as speaker of the house. kevin mccarthy, the newly minted speaker of the house, saying that these are the types of situations that allow the american public to not have confidence in their government. he's referring to the fact that we've now have a current president of the united states who has now had classified documents found in his private residence. and we also have
9:25 pm
a former president of the united states who has also had classified documents found in his private residents. and so you can see why there is a lack of confidence here. so this is an attempt by an attorney general to try and restore that public. * confidence with the naming of a special counsel to investigate the potential impropriety of the revelation of these document. and if we can just take a step back for a moment. kimberly, and talk about how we actually got here because we've now learned of a 2nd batch of documents that have been found in president biden's private residence. that's correct. so what we've learned is in the last 24 hours, there was a 2nd batch of documents which we were aware of, but we were not aware of the location of where these documents were found. we now know they were found in the private residence. in fact, the location was the garage of president biden's delaware home,
9:26 pm
willing to him del delaware. this was following a search that was completed in the last 24 hours of both the wilmington, delaware home, as well as his beach residence or beach house. this search by the government officials was commenced following a discovery of a 1st cash of documents that was discovered at the pen biden's center. back in november. those were discovered just prior to the congressional elections, the mid term congressional elections. and the controversy about this 1st discovery is that it was the public was not made aware of this 1st discovery of classified documents that were obtained by the of then vice president biden. during his time as vice president and the fact is is that had this been made public, it may have had some influence on the congressional election. so this is opening up the president not only to scrutiny,
9:27 pm
but also the fact that there is also allegations of hypocrisy. given the fact that he has been very vocal calling, the former president, donald trump irresponsible for his mis handling of classified documents, given the fact that he himself has had to turn over classified documents found at his home in mar, logo, which we should point out in the case of both former former president donald trump and the current president joe biden. these documents have now been turned over to the national archives. all right, thank you so much. kimberly hall code for that update from the white house in washington dc. let's bring in richard painter, who's a former chief of fiscal year for president george w bush. he's also a professor at the university of minnesota law school. he's joining us from st. paul, that's over in minnesota. welcome to the al jazeera news hour. can i just get your initial thoughts on, on what we heard mary garland say just a few moments ago, and that he's appointing a special counsel to investigate the biden documents pro was, is exactly what the attorney general should do,
9:28 pm
appoint his special counsel. we should not have the attorney general of the united states who is on reporting to the president denies lights investigating the president. we need his battle council ah, involving any investigation of the president or you want to works for the president on they should investigate what happened in 2016, 2017. when these documents were packed up on the vice president's office and shipped to the pen biden's center as well as to the president's home in law in delaware. ah, what happened? what went wrong? because classified documents are marked as such weather cover that says they're classified as so unless they just sent in some moving company don pack the vice president's office or you would think that someone would have caught that. so this is incredibly careless handling of classified information in the 20162017 time frame. they also need to look into the pen by the center, a number of other issues i've raised with respect to that. all that don't directly pertaining to a classified documents, a large amounts of pay,
9:29 pm
large payments were made to them like former vice president biden. to be a professor. i don't think he taught any classes there. ah, and now there are even reports that 100 bond was trying to get the office and the pen biden's had, or i don't know what's going on there. right off in a lot of money, was raised by the university pennsylvania from shawna. right. so the american population origin painted and my apologies for the american public who may have lost trust in the u. s. government, as our a reporter was just saying, who are questioning how these classified documents had been found in a current president's primary residence as well as the former president, trump as well. so does this move by the attorney general then help restore the public's trust and government to you? thank. i think it dos and on this should they investigate what happened at mar logo as well? these are 2 different cases with respect to the president, trump. the problem is that when they asked with the documents, you refuse to return. so i was wondering if someone stupidly, ah,
9:30 pm
removes these types of classified documents that as careless handling classified information. ah, but it becomes criminal when somebody knowingly ros classified documents or refuses to turn them over. when asked for the documents, which is what happened in the case of the mar, logo manor, as well as a former president, trump lawyers having a made misrepresentations to the ah, national archives about what he had. and so that, that's a different matter and may have crossed the line in a criminal conduct. i don't know whether it was a former president trump or someone else who was responsible. ah, but of these matters either all we've taken seriously. whether it's a document that the pen by the center at pres and at biden's summer home ed homan, delaware, or ah, the mar logo absolutely most are classified information. what do you expect the political fallout to be if any 4 are present in bite? and how embarrassing is this for him?
9:31 pm
well, the, the best thing to do is to get all the cards on the table face up as soon as possible. we had scandals in the bush administration, but that was always the voice i gave when there's a scandal. get all the news out, the bad news as well as the goodness and the pointing a special council is the right move on. so there's going to pan on how this is handled going forward. and as of sad, i think there are other matters particular concerning pen bind that need to be investigated. they need the transparency of that. everything that happened there. ah, and if they are idly the president could whether this dawn, if there is holding back of information, an incomplete investigation. ah, it's not going to be good for president. all right, thank you so much richer painter for joining us from minnesota. thank you very much . ah,
9:32 pm
lebanon's hire judicial council has failed to appoint an alternate judge in the bay report explosion from 2020. the move was a wind for victims. families who've been demanding justice for nearly 3 years. but a zanna hud reports the battle is not over as the investigation remains block. i. they won this round, but families of the more than $200.00 victims of the explosion at bay with port are far from achieving the justice they demand. it's been nearly 3 years since one of the largest non nuclear blasts in recent history and lebanon leadership has been standing in the way of accountability, trying to replace the judge because by the judge that is politically automated, with a gun follicles. so it's a big, big deal we will know that they managed to do so. the case of
9:33 pm
the board was just, you know, this is gone so far, the authorities haven't been able to appoint a 2nd judge. every judge in dead must know though to precautions. of them are contributing to the divergence and to the covering the justice. but officials have blocked the investigation for more than a year. now. they have filed lawsuit against the lead investigator tonic baton, preventing him from proceeding with his investigation. it has been established that officials as high up as the president were aware of the presence of highly exposed material at a port warehouse and did nothing about it. an investigation by human rights organizations concluded that multiple authorities work at a minimum criminally negligence. many here say the answer lies in an international investigation, which authorities have repeatedly rejected their national community and
9:34 pm
human rights should. i mean, how long will they wait? just a 5 year dorman on, and it will be dorman forever. it's nothing comes from outside. it's been a long battle for families who are up against a political and security establishment in a country with a culture of impunity that there should 0 data. thousands of people have rallied against the shadow arms group. and so molly capitol, it's one of the largest public gatherings among edition when recent years, president hudson sheriff mahatma moved to a declared war on the group when he came to power last year. and chabad has been fighting somalia government since 2007 sir lincoln's former president has been ordered to pay damages for failing to prevent the 2019 easter sunday bomb attacks.

9:36 pm
but there's also the chief of intelligence, the head of police at the time, the secretary of the ministry of defense and several other senior officials who have been a saw import the, this kind of fine. and the key thing is that there was intelligence weeks ahead of those bomb attacks on the 4th of april. in fact, those easter bombings took place on the 21st of april, but as early as the 4th of april of the intelligence chief mylanta j warden had received information that these attacks were likely to take place and in its judgment, the supreme court judges said, there was certainty, exactitude. is there exact words of the identity of the potential attackers, the mod of attack, as well as the targets of attack, the indian himalayan china just she math as being evacuated as its buildings

or system, a lot of it's being taken up by the ocean. that is something that is basically keeping our air temperatures maybe lower than they would be, because some of that he is going into the oceans. in the end, that extra heat in the oceans is going to change patterns of how the ocean temperatures and how the ocean circulation itself is going to is going to be changing. so that make a change. for example, areas that are really affected by ocean temperatures. in their local weather, local climate changing over the ocean, temperatures can eventually change an ocean circulation and bring different patterns. that's not something i think people are saying right now, but it is something that it because it's a whole connected system. we have to be looking carefully at that in the future, things like the gulf stream and how, how your experiences in temperatures really are affected by ocean circulation.
9:42 pm
right. and speaking, if you're, if there were some significant hotspots in parts of your report there. yes, exactly, and this just shows you that even though overall we tend to report like this report reports, average global temperatures going up. there can still be very much regional extremes . and as we know, you're going to parts of southern asia also they experienced it record high temperatures, record heat waves, and he weighs is a very robust finding. unfortunately, we're going to be seeing more and more heat ways and temperature extremes in heat you know, in the coming years with, with global warming. and we all know the, the news reports about the effects of those heat waves and their losses of life and real impacts and throughout society, when you, when you get a regional heat wave like that, what difference do you think that these reports actually make? well i, i do think that people are paying attention this conversation about what's happening
9:43 pm
in our climate is only increasing globally. i just see it's, it's really becoming not just an area for somebody like myself. it's studies climate change, but it's really becoming a topic of discussion across the kitchen table. it's becoming something politicians are paying attention to. i do think they pay attention to these kinds of reports that really are documenting or observed climate. what are the records been? and so forth, i think they make a lot more news when there's a, you know, an extreme that's been reported. but unfortunately we're seeing more of those extremes being recorded every year. i think the last 9 out of the bus 10 years were extreme records and globally and temperature. so i do think it's just again, one of the ongoing pieces of evidence that people are starting to pay attention to more and more that our environment is changing. we're living in a changed environment, so i do think they have impact. all right, thank you so much. lisa. delaying for speaking to us from colorado. thank you. so
