vivere come on no one to say the 6 but he says recent trade disputes could be coming to an end we are in the early stages of discussion for an incredible trade agreement to reduce barriers of investment between the united states and india and i am optimistic that working together the prime minister and i could reach a fantastic deal despite that optimism any breakthroughs on trade talks would be unlikely as both sides have ramped up tariffs in the last year but leaving the stadium to finish the day at one of the wonders of the world the taj mahal on tuesday the leaders will sharpen their focus beginning renew trade talks in delhi. well for more on where this relationship is headed here on earth and beyond i'm joined tonight by barofsky because he is
11:07 pm
a distinguished senior fellow at the observer research foundation that's a leading indian sink tank he is also an author his latest book final frontier india and space security lays out how india has become a major player in space weaponization roth joins me tonight via skype from washington d.c. broughton's good to have you on the day before we talk about outer space let's talk about this love fest that we solve a day between the prime minister and the president. how do you read it how does it strike you these scenes with modi and draw well i think they've found a sweet spot for each other i think both their expert campaign campaigners for their own party and for themselves you know the french gave don would come from vestal day parade the japanese made to meet the emperor and the indians are wondering what can they offer him something different that will ruin charm and they
11:08 pm
realized that i can rise and realized as weaknesses for rallies and big crowds and the chanting of crowds and i think that's exactly what the what the indians gave that this was that her solicit to euston in september and you know modi knows this is his home ground and he can play very well and subsides and the quality is size of the audience and that's what and that's exactly what he gave them and i you know by that i think that's where they resonate devoid of any substance i don't think that much care about the substance of the style of which they exude cute it was great. yeah and i think i'm drunk was visibly impressed by the crowd that he sold there today let's talk about outer space the united states it has started a new military branch scald space force and at the same time it's as that you write in your book that india is becoming a major player in the weaponization of outer space are these 2 complimentary developments in your opinion are we talking about 2 allies in the skies and an
11:09 pm
elder space. this is big churning for a while i think there are there are a couple of and maybe you know there was one statement where the prime minister said this is no longer a usual partnership and this is an unusual a very close relationship with the united states if i were to read between the lines and if i were willingly speculate that statement is the big they would the big the big on the one statement is china out there and china has a very impressive space program on the military and the space weaponization front the indo us partnership and comes up space military space assets has been churning for a while for the last 15 years and india has impressive assets that can contribute to its amount of time domain awareness from the south china sea and in the indian ocean where the u.s. company just relatively weak and the indians could offer them some assets out there i think this is being going on for a while this is just going to come out more in the open this is going to get legitimize and also in terms of space weaponization where you know india and indian
11:10 pm
help to it some of these weapons could be burnished by the u.s. capacity so i think that the you you wouldn't see more of these kind of cooperation in going forward do you see china being really the force that is pushing india and the united states closer together i'm in a relationship that maybe will outlast the personalities of modi and trump in his intensity in closeness. and in many ways i think the relationship will already outlast obviously i made a 9098 in 1900 and it was a sanction country and 20 years from 1998 if you want to recalibrate the relationship today you are talking about $3000000000.00 a big thumbs deal so you will you have never talked about these things and do it because. you know what was fundamentally stumbling to us a good relationship with this that will get us no good deal now whether that you
11:11 pm
get commercial benefits or not that's the print question but that's an award that that's was one of the fundamental bottom policy of victories for the united states and getting india into its world and i think you know china china was a significant factor not it was not the only factor ok. the polish woman with the observer research foundation joining me tonight from washington ross we appreciate your time and your insights tonight thank you. well still to come hillary as in hillary clinton on the red carpet at the berlin film festival the berlin wall. we'll have a look at a french movie that will make you want to delete all of your online accounts and joking about leaked e-mails well hillary clinton is in town with a new documentary and we've got a film directly inspired by the harvey weinstein case that's all coming up tonight on the day. protests today outside the london court where the extradition hearing began for wiki leaks founder
11:12 pm
julian assange and the u.s. wants the u.k. to extradite a song he's wanted in the u.s. on espionage charges relating to intelligence leaks today the defense team told the court that u.s. president trump wants to make an example of julie innocent and they say extradition would eventually make it easier for governments around the world to target journalist who report on leaked information. well if it is extradited and convicted in the u.s. you most likely spend the rest of his life in prison how did the man who gave us wiki leaks become one of america's most wanted for leaking we have this report. that these are the images that made whistle blowing web site wiki leaks a household name. in 2010 it published classified u.s. army material implicating the us government and possible war crimes i am
11:13 pm
believe it may julian assange a brave defender of the truth to some rules and an enemy of the state to others. more controversy followed over a later mass leak of diplomatic cables and the 2016 publication of leaked e-mails from hillary clinton's presidential campaign. in 2012 a 7 year stretch holed up at the ecuadorian embassy in london trying to clear his name was sweden so to extradite him on rape charges. sweden dropped the case last year saying too much time had passed but the prosecutor still says the accusation was credible so the un special rapporteur on torture told d.w. they were trumped up charges he said they were designed to ward off potential whistleblowers from quote airing government study laundry. in paris the songes
11:14 pm
father was ambivalent about his son's chances under the british justice system. if if it follows the trajectory of the treatment of julian of 10 years it will be a show trial but. the team of lawyers is so forceful and competent that i'm sure the crown prosecuting authority will see the error of they way. ahead of today's court hearing julian assange has been held in a london maximum security jail and supporters fear he could face a lot longer behind bars if extradited to the u.s. he may spend the rest of his life in prison while at issue in the extradition case what exactly is wiki leaks the u.s. government argues that we hear leaks is not a publisher and the u.s. maintains that a song is not a free speech champion but rather just an ordinary criminal u.s.
11:15 pm
government attorney james lewis said the massive leaks dumping of classified material had put lives at risk to quote him reporting or journalism is not an excuse for criminal activities or a license to break ordinary criminal walls what do journalists say about this many are rallying around julian assad's more than 1300 journalists and whistleblowers have signed an open statement of support speak up for a song here is part of the video attached to that whether. this is why i'm seeing in defense of food on the thought of now at these dangerous procedures for all these guys to be a wall to decide the terrible discovery of just going to suppress been directed it's a larger is working around the globe. well that message is one that is championed by claire daley she is an independent socialist irish member of the european
11:16 pm
parliament she's met julius on gin she's campaigned against his extradition here's what she told. we have here it's very much how this prosecution extradition proceedings are very much it's never made to be for issues like i mean in essence his extradition is sauce to the u.s. in order to answer cherishes. cost point information rich wants to monstrously in the public insurance information and bad joke war crimes states government in afghanistan and in iraq actually in syria it was also published by. arrogant and the new york times and i was so these are normal journalists to practice and for someone to face an extradition once i answer charges on earth the espionage act which had never been used before we had. our journalists everywhere if you know it since going away with it is not the person and patients
11:17 pm
aren't. claire daly there and is joining us on his hearing progresses will follow every important step right here on the day. well it has been the most anticipated court verdict to be handed down since the beginning of the me too movement today a jury in new york found former hollywood producer harvey weinstein guilty of 2 counts of sexual misconduct weinstein was convicted of 3rd degree rape as well as committing a criminal sexual act he was acquitted of the most serious charges which carry all the magic white sentences after the verdict weinstein was handcuffed and sent to jail where he'll await his sentencing next month weinstein has always denied any wrongdoing always maintaining that any sexual acts had been consensual. after the verdict prosecutors praised the women who came forward and testified against the man who was once the most powerful movie producer in hollywood. weinstein with.
11:18 pm
his resources his attorneys their publicists and his spies did everything he could to silence the survivors but they refused to be signed. they spoke from their hearts and they were heard from the very very beginning until the very very end the verdict sheet the verdict sheet is the most complicated verdict sheet anyone has ever seen this is not as opinion this is a legal scholars opinion so that's the appellate lawyers think there are plenty of ability for more now we want to pull it in or fema journalist she is in los angeles good evening to you t.j. so we know harvey weinstein he was facing 5 charges he's been found guilty on 2 counts talk us through this verdict here help us understand what he's been convicted. well you know like you said he's been convicted found guilty of a criminal sexual act in the 1st degree guilty of 3rd degree rape so he was facing 5 charges but was only found guilty of the lesser charges which 2 out of the 5 so
11:19 pm
a lot of people here are saying that there just wasn't enough evidence to convict him on all 5 but they wanted to convict him on something they didn't want the the prosecution to walk away empty handed so they convicted him on the lesser charges of course people were hoping that he would be convicted on all of them especially the most serious charges of rape but that just wasn't the case so we know he will at least get at the minimum 5 years if not more but a lot of people are saying is actually a victory for both the prosecution and the defense that being weinstein although he is in jail currently and will have a we have to wait in jail until you know he is sentenced in march 11th and you know we can't. overstate the importance of this verdict for the me to movement can we i mean it has been the most anticipated verdict since the need to movement began yet there were the number of sexual assault cases that were
11:20 pm
settled by the weinstein company and then there were 13 other women that came forward and said i too have been harassed or sexually assaulted and after that it's never been the same i mean of course we have to meet to movement and then the organization time's up was created but it's hard to believe that it really was just 2 and a half years ago that all of this began right your payment journalist k.g. matthys with the latest tonight on that verdict for harvey weinstein found guilty t.j. thank you. well the verdict is being celebrated by many members of the me too movement actress resent our cats one of weinstein's accusers saying that she's grateful to the brave women who testified and to the jury for seeing through the dirty tactics of the defense and time's up a group that evolved from the b. 2 movement releasing a statement saying in part while it is disappointing that today's outcome does not deliver the truth full justice that women deserve harvey weinstein more now forever be known as a convicted serial predator. the
11:21 pm
70th berlin international film festival is now in full swing and one film showing out of competition is hillary a u.s. documentary about the former u.s. 1st lady and the woman herself well she's in berlin today she walked the red carpet for the screening of the documentary now the film looks at hillary clinton's life from her upbringing in chicago all the way to her presidential campaign in 2016 here's a look at that documentary hillary. president. there .
11:22 pm
and i know. yeah i was watching that documentary this afternoon my colleagues helena humphrey and scott riseborough they did the same thing good evening to both of you guys how does hillary clinton how does she come across in your opinion in this documentary. yeah i think i think that we all agree that hillary clinton is one of the most divisive political figures in america there's a lot of people who love her there's a lot of people who really dislike her and i think anyone going in with a strong opinion of hillary clinton into the series is probably not going to have their mind changed by it there's plenty there for everybody really if you a lovely clinton i think you can look at this documentary and see it incredibly intelligent. and it's very inspirational politician if you dislike her you're probably going to see elements of her political conniving of props or arrogance
11:23 pm
towards political opponents so i don't think this document you see is going to change anybody's mind but what i thought was really compelling about it is the fact is a real in-depth and behind the scenes look at someone i think we all agree is one of most important political figures of our time and i have to say i don't think hillary clinton has self minds the documentary too much bread based on the fact that she he needs to marshal to never a press conference so be really interesting to see i mean what kind of message she brings to this have a capital yeah i mean and it's also part of legacy building for her with the delegates what competition films screened at the barely knowledge and a. for the most recent film that we've just seen and it's had its premiere here on the right cop it was the swiss production chest and i know little sister this is about twins from a theatrical family the brother sadly dying of leukemia being looked after by his sister who is a playwright set between switzerland and i take
11:24 pm
a theatrical while to very much of the actual world berlin and it's the 2 so siblings are played by 2 of germany's best and much to my most favorite actors a large writing or as the as the brother and the incredible nina hoss as the sister and we have this question about this film afterwards we're a little bit disagreed i really really like that i think you always lose a bit but over dover the audience is a very theatrical movie and a very theatrical performance of both these stars but if you if you like these 2 actors or if you want to see what what a real sort of a master class in acting then i definitely think it's a film to check and i want to tell you about the movie that i saw today that i absolutely loved and that is the french piece delete history now this is about 3 friends who meet as yellow vest protests as i mean they meet on a roundabout in the suburbs all fronts they find themselves embroiled in all sorts of trouble i would say due to their use of social media they just don't quite get it is the main a lot of hot water take a watch. now as
11:25 pm
a producer. and i didn't make love with you marie says to the man on the phone but she had done a lot of whisky and a cell phone camera were involved 6 they. believe this is as you seem to think there's a pretty fuzzy. finale's isn't the only one caught in the trap of the brave new social media world that tomes daughter is being bullied on line. but this is sort of because taxi driver christine only receives bad reviews and has to buy positive ones in south asia by the internet of course. the. 3 are determined to fight for their rights against us tech giants that seem like an invincible. opponent. more likely got the deficit data is valuable is the gold of today and we just let us be rolled by what's happening here is systematic 5th. of the film team or in fighting spirit stew and fine french tradition at the press
11:26 pm
conference they demonstrative lee showed their support for france's yellow vests protests. it may sound highly political but delete history has turned out to be a captivating comedy about 3 zany characters who go all the way to silicon valley but ultimately find happiness on their own doorstep entirely analog no signal and definitely no cell phone. all right is that phone that those were the days all right what else are people talking about at the belly because i know they all have their cell phones in their hands. yet well i mean we're just talking about that the film is incredibly timed that's being shown here called the assistant and this is being described as the 1st meet to film as actually directly inspired by the harvey weinstein case and i thought it was it's a phenomenal film not just because the plot of the movie seems to be ripped
11:27 pm
directly from the testimony that we're hearing in this trial but also because instead of being directly about the the monster the abuser this is more about the culture that enables him we don't actually see this figure of this harvey weinstein esque figure but we follow his assistant and we see how various subtle things happen within the office that allows these these these crimes to take place and i think is a very very powerful film and it couldn't have been better to. all right when the humphrey and scott they are on the red carpet at the berlin wall to both of you thank you. and the day is almost gone the conversation continues online to find us on twitter you know the news you can follow me at brant golf t.v. and don't forget to use the hash tag the date ever number whatever happens between now and that to morrow gives another day we'll see you there on.
