1:02 pm
that came from officials after taint was hit by yet another scandal over an unauthorized disclosure correspondent jacqueline bouvier has more from washington. attorney general jeff sessions and the director of national intelligence sent a clear message that a crackdown is coming on what they called the culture of leaks in america both men stress the fact that these disclosures of classified information put national security at risk and jeopardize all americans exceptional spoke on the fact that they have seen a sharp rise in illegal leaks reporting that in the first six months of the trumpet ministration the department of justice has received almost as many criminal referrals over leaks as over the past three years combined in turn a general also added that these leaks are affecting trump's ability to do his job effectively. no government can be effective when its leaders do not discuss sensitive matters and when it so freely in confidence with foreign leaders for the
1:03 pm
first time sessions revealed that for prosecutions are already underway and implied that more might be coming and one of trump's closest advisors kellyanne conway has even speculated that using a lie detector test on people in the west wing is a possibility to root out the sources of these leaks so this show of force comes after the washington post published what is likely the most dangerous leak to have happened up to this point the transcripts of trump's phone calls with two foreign leaders from back in january of this year that these documents getting out is seen as explosive given that they involve highly classified conversations with the mexican president and the australian prime minister the call records reveal that trump argued with his mexican counterpart about his proposed border wall and show tension between trump and the australian prime minister over refugees. my position has been and will continue to be very firm saying that mexico cannot pay for that wall but you cannot say that to the press the press is going to go with that and i
1:04 pm
cannot live with that you cannot say that to the press because i can not negotiate under those circumstances this is a big deal it is really really important to us that we maintain it it doesn't oblige you to take one person that you do not want this is going to kill me i am the world's greatest person that does not want to let people into the country and likely in response to leaked documents such as those being published sessions offered a warning to the press saying that prosecutors have launched a review of the justice department's policy related to subpoenas involving media organizations implying that the press could be held responsible for publishing classified information the term administration has long been fighting to stop illegal leaks and now it's clear that they mean business. earlier we discussed the latest leaks with former u.s. diplomat he also believes the leaks pose a major threat to national security what could be more damaging if for the president united states cannot talk to
1:05 pm
a foreign leader frankly without fear of his public comments going public or those of the person he's talking to how do you conduct diplomatic business which should be the top priority of the president and i think the legal system information just just simply shows this kind of remain elijah's we have here in washington that nothing is to it bad to do this president he's such an illegitimate such a bad president that all the rules can be broken and this criminal activity this criminal leaking is sure why not it's actually patriotic to do that. the u.s. state department russia for a new low in its relations with moscow that's after president donald trump signed his approval to the latest sanctions bill on wednesday. so you are you saying that russia is to blame for the low in relations right now. russia's been involved in a lot of activities a lot of activities that are very concerning i know to many of you and to many americans whether it is election related activities or their activities in ukraine
1:06 pm
they've also harassed u.s. diplomats there i mean there are a whole host of things to most seem to have a different view on the issue he says on twitter that the blame for the souring relations lies soley that those of the u.s. congress he also called the russia sanctions bill which received overwhelming support in both houses clearly unconstitutional such overwhelming backing meant even if the president had vetoed the bill lawmakers would likely have overruled it and you go it also gives congress the power to block trum from easing any of the restrictions the rockwell found of an american think tank believes the president should have been more assertive in his opposition to the sanctions bill mr schumer you know the president i guess felt that he had signed that horrendous sanctions bill and remember sanctions are acts of war under international law however what he should have done is exactly what george bush i hate to recommend anything george bush did you should have said as he signed the bill he should have said i don't
1:07 pm
intend to enforce this of course because of the constitutional so what should have done is just ignored it this is not unprecedented and there are plenty of times when congress felt the president was doing bad stuff. here the most is probably feeling he now has to become another war president making war against any more different problem countries talk to think of trump in that sense he seems like such a powerful guy maybe they've got him on the ropes maybe this is who knows what's ahead i fear it's not good for americans for russians for the chinese people for anybody in this whole world. the opposition in venezuela says that the country's parliament will refuse to design. itself even if wanted to do so by the new constituent assembly will be sent to hold its first session on friday the international community has also expressed its concerns the united states has been the most vocal branding last sunday's vote illegitimate so also calling president
1:08 pm
nicolas maduro as leadership a dictatorship and as aunties and i guess the of reports now being deemed a dictator these days is rather easy little to juneau there's actually two ways to become a dictator there's the obvious way brutally oppressed your people crush dissent and rule with an iron fist method to annoy america yesterday's illegitimate elections confirm that durham is a dictator who disregards the will of the venezuelan people that's going to hurt when the us brands you a dictator all bets are off even if you really aren't one any claim of your crimes is taken as fact international law stops working or your enemies suddenly get a lot of money and in many cases shiny new guns or to see uncle sam
1:09 pm
in syria we have ramped up on military assistance to the syrian opposition. remember what happened to saddam will assad blame them foot anything and it will stick the name of the game was regime change exporting democracy and that's a heck of a lot easier when you put trade the other guy as the cuts whom villain syrian dictator bashar al assad bashar assad is a war criminal thugs and a murderer like bashar al assad it's already begun their equating duro to kim jong un that's crazy talk you might think there are no concentration camps there are elections with dora himself he joins a very exclusive club including mr mcgarvie. and and and kim jong un in terms of the real repression of his people what about this
1:10 pm
guy the king of saudi arabia his opponents a tortured and executed in public his family controls everything in saudi arabia he has deprived his people of freedom democracy choice talk about dancing with the devil. what does washington do sells hundreds of billions of dollars worth of weapons to saudi arabia. that for double standards us foreign policy is entirely hypocritical i mean they only characterize government says dictatorial or authoritarian when they're not favorable to us interests us maintains close ties and supports their monarchy in saudi arabia that's one of the biggest abusers of
1:11 pm
human rights in the world when it comes to putting labels on governments and other nations it all depends on who's a friend or a foe of the united states sad isn't it you can rule oppress kill all you want without repetitions but only if you bend the knee to washington or you can do none of that and still wind up being called a dictator. plans for a new synagogue in sydney australia have been banned amid fears that it could become the target of an ice will inspire a terrorist attack the decision by the local council was in court this week the synagogue was to be built a few hundred metres away from the iconic bondi beach but authorities ruled it could pose a threat to local residents extra security measures were added to the plans but these were deemed unsightly by the council spokesman for the jewish group that appealed the decision believes that the ruling is
1:12 pm
a victory for the terrorists. it basically implies the jewish organization should be allowed to exist in residential areas it stands to stand for jewish existence and activity in sydney and then by creating a precedent the whole of australia and by extension rewarding terrorism. potential terrorist attacks have already been hitting the headlines this week in australia after a plot to blow up an airliner was foiled two men were charged with tara fences on thursday over an aborted attempt to place an expensive device on a flight coming out of sydney it's called one of the most sophisticated plots ever attempted in the country and some extent reportedly to organize it despite this australian jewish activist yemeni belief that the terrorists are still winning a new student dogs are being found. targeting the jewish community because they may become victim or the radical islamists is certainly not the way to go about it
1:13 pm
sending the wrong message that's a win for the islamists exactly what they want now they are changing the way our society i'll be leaving a demonstration the next sunday. from across the border across the street society who are outraged by this decision this is not a jewish issue this isn't a strain issue tomorrow it could be a stadium it could be a train station it could be any strains will not care what terrorism and why they want to see our government or writing islamic terror they don't. now amid the current turmoil in the white house strong trump is delighted with one positive development the record gain seen on the american stock market the president story could be short lived it's killing more than explains. the u.s. stock market is riding high and there's no one more happy about it than the man in
1:14 pm
the oval office we've picked up substantially now more than four trillion dollars in net worth in terms of our country our stocks our companies well that sounds great right well that depends on who you ask first let's quiz the movers and shakers here on wall street what do you think of the spike in the markets the donald trump's been talking about look it's obviously great news that the economy is doing well i think that's generally a good buy for everyone you know on the other hand i think it's not unusual for a new administration to sometimes won't take credit for a trend that might have surfaced in the previous one this is are looking to see that there's going to be no more regulation they're happy to see that. the market is following suit but the average american doesn't really share their enthusiasm i think a lot of people are suffering of the china to go union jobs like you know i mean everybody everybody is inside of the opinion but from what i've seen like. we're all struggling a lot of people don't have john. the jobs you know housing and everything is to see less of everything is going down maybe the working classes have
1:15 pm
a reason to be skeptical of stocks all around the world are tanking because of the crisis on wall street like the puppies do for twenty years and they are losing their jobs and these cars are going to go out this is a nice big i think that's the route i think i did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of you know fat cat bankers on wall street on and on and on regulator after regulator they either chose not to act or turned a blind eye to what was actually going it was a lack of regulation that many people blame for the chaos that took place back in two thousand and eight but fast forward to today present tromp says that too much regulation is the problem we have had regulation that's been so bad. so out of line that it's really hurt our country and now not everyone agrees with the president on the. a recent report from the public advocacy group called public citizen had this
1:16 pm
to say the trumpet ministrations changes would make americans more vulnerable to the sort of reckless bets that appended the economy in two thousand and eight and two scams men scrupulous bankers but trump says that this is just the beginning what we're going to be doing over the next six months will be incredible we've signed more bills and i'm talking about through the legislature than any president ever yes everybody agrees that two thousand and eight was a big mess but the question on people's minds now is is the current spike in the market held by trump just a rise getting ready for a big fall. r.t. new york. journalist brinson l'engle fears that another market crash is looming if too much power is given to the banks it's the same attitude that led to two thousand and eight. the banking sector is notoriously bad at judging. risk it's one of the reasons why you need strong regulations on banks and the
1:17 pm
trumpet ministration doesn't seem interested in you know really paying any attention to the financial sector beyond like just let them do what they want to do and we've seen what happens when they do what they want to do they crash the economy they put a bunch of people out of work to do aside to go up and you know you get occupy wall street compas crowing a lot about how the stock market is doing to him but the fact is he has nothing to do with it the only thing that trump has been able to do mostly is to scare the market. with various regulations. recent figures in the u.k. show a marked increase in the number of children calling for help out of fear of being forced into a ranged marriages the data was collected by the british children's charity in its p.c.c. . if the decisions being made to feel being told when where you marry who you marry that's forced marriage. support and advice is available to
1:18 pm

1:19 pm
going to get married i run away before so went through the gate on party and then i decided i was going to get married nobody was going to force me to get it so i decided that i was going to run away from one city to the next. so why did was i saves money up stole some money from a brother who was a taxi driver in them days going back twenty years ago. same thousand pound fifty in english pounds took that on a coach on one city to the next and never went back i was coming shocked. and never met him in my life so although he was a cousin didn't mean him in my life at all so scared in front of all didn't want to go through with it because i'm great issue as far as i was concerned i was british i was born here i was raised here so i should do what the british values are one of the walls i didn't want to get moaned and disappointed because i would have thought there would have been more awareness on the subject now some of it is pointed out you know after twenty what used to still happen is should it happen we should
1:20 pm
embrace british values because we're pretty we should force our children to to get married so he's disappointed we need to do more as a society more to conquer and stop this abuse from happening. we spoke to joseph in the thing garrett who campaigns to protect children from forced marriages when she was sixteen she was locked in a room after she refused to marry a man chosen by her parents she ran away with a secret boyfriend and stopped talking to a family later she found out that one of her sisters who was married at fifteen and committed suicide is what she told us. people believe because we are democracy because we have to relook through all these things couldn't possibly be happening in england clearly they are and it's very important to know that forced marriage and use is fundamentally against every religion islam seeks the more hindu is fundamentally speaks out against it but other victims are not taught that so families will use these as just a few creations we need to send out very strong messages that in britain it's
1:21 pm
a criminal offense to force and it's marriage and this is not acceptable in any religion tradition or culture but i'll victims need to know that they haven't been taught that because it's not in the interest of their family to tell them that because it would empower them. authorities in italy have impounded the boat belonging to a german group that was reportedly rescuing migrants in the mediterranean this is footage released by the italian coast guard that shows the authorities seizing the ship the vessel was intercepted wednesday is part of a government initiative that's designed to counter the surge of migrants mostly africans trying to get to with delete from libya officials claim the crew members from the boat were working with people smugglers. here you see in several cases these interventions at sea by the boat were carried out not to save people who find themselves in imminent danger but simply to pick up people or scored it by
1:22 pm
libyan traffickers. that comes after italy presented a controversial code of conduct to aid groups this demands of police presence on in jail vessels and it bans the transfer of refugees throughout the ships phone calls or flares from angio boats are forbidden as they could be used as feared to communicate to people smugglers the six out of nine n.g.o.s operating in the mediterranean sea have refused to sign that document early my colleague kate poetry to discuss the issue the italian journalist much telephone german politician martin dulls. the moment europe is responsible for the destructions in africa a lot and look at that it's necessary to open legal ways for refugees but europe children people to countries like italy like spain like portugal with a problem but all european countries should take responsibility and so all the people who are. members on this ship and on other refugee have bought as well they
1:23 pm
just want to save lives because of the last ten years i was more than forty thousand people dying in the mediterranean sea and they just don't want to see the people joy i see very clearly that this is not the you money to. help is not the money to an s.o.s. but it's helping those people arriving in italy and the refugees that are coming that are paying huge sums to human traffickers this is immoral and i would say that it is true that. the destruction of libya was a mistake of historical mistake but i don't see why a contra single country like italy should pay the price for it so it's a huge problem neatly and finally the government decided to take some action to stop this kind of. and i was on board the impounded ship describe what happened. this interrogation started spontaneously without the presence of
1:24 pm
a lawyer only witnesses we discovered that the boat was being searched at that stage we decided to go to the boat and not to declare our intentions in front of the police after a long and meticulous search we were let go but i want to stress that we were free to leave at any time and at this stage the investigation into aiding illegal migrants remains ongoing towards unknown persons leader of the crew nor the ngo has been formally accused of anything. new companies found to come to the rescue of traditional conservatives in the united states tired of the liberal ways of the state's called conservative move the company aims to help families relocate to texas a state known for its traditional values and it's already been flooded with inquiries most of them coming from californians paul shabat says that the golden state just isn't what it used to be. today california's completely different it's
