this is a dictator this is a tipping point for our democracy declassify this memo for fundamentally a political purpose. well specifically the memo alleges they'll be application for a warrant to surveil a former trump aide carter page relied on the highly controversial democrat funded steidl dossier it was compiled by a former british spine is full of bomb verified claims about trump suppose that links to russia but crucially the memo asserts that the f.b.i. did not reveal the origins of the document to the court but both the agency of the democratic party have claimed the memo is incomplete and misleading and some legal experts have also said the f.b.i. was actually under no obligation to reveal their memos origin to the judge. looks at what the documents declassification could mean for american politics if indeed the obama administration used the department of justice and the f.b.i.
to spy on electronic campaign this could be quite a scandal it would discredit the d.o.j. and the f.b.i. as nonpartizan a law enforcers and destroy the democrats now the democratic leadership doesn't want to be destroyed so here's a few of their last ditch efforts to keep their boat afloat. now adam schiff from the democratic side of the house intelligence committee says the republicans edited the document to fit their political agenda he says he's preparing a memo of his own that will expose the misleading character of the document. as expressed during our initial review we have grave concerns about material emissions a fact that fundamentally impact the most accuracy. discovered late tonight the chairman new news made material changes to the memo he sent to the
white house changes not approved by the committee the white house therefore reviewing a document the committee has not approved for release however some of these changes rayment. request of the democrats and the f.b.i. themselves others included minor edits and grammatical fixes. and it never hurts to throw russia into the mix is it possible that the republican chairman of the house intel committee has been compromised by the russians as a possible plea at all russian agents running the house intel committee on the republican side i hope that's not the case that this whole big stir is over just for pieces of paper but those four pieces of paper contain vital information information with potentially enough voltage to light up washington d.c. for months if not years came up and r.t. new york where former cia whistleblower on analyst john kerry aco told us he believes that the elements of laid bare some of the f.b.i.'s more on savory
practices this contains some troubling evidence of f.b.i. malfeasance those of us who are critics of the f.b.i. have been saying this for years this is how the f.b.i. does business they do it surreptitiously they do it by stabbing people in the back they do it by setting people up by entrapping them by tricking them and that's exactly what they did with the place of court they played the fisa court judge by not telling them the source of this deal a they played that judge by not telling them that this was a partisan. report and and they got their warrant they got their warrant anyway. two people have been killed and over a hundred injured after two trains collided in the us state of south carolina the collision between another truck train and a freight train happened at around two thirty in the morning local time the amtrak train was operating between new york and miami with at least eight crew on one

this is why in twenty cases the evidence collected was found to be insufficient to establish that's an anti-doping rule violation it was committed. this does not mean that these twenty eight actually start declared in a sense but in their case due to insufficient evidence the appears held the sanctions and the old and their individual results achieved in such reinstated. cost a decision is extremely disappointing and surprising for. the the i.o.c. we would never have expected these these decision shows so the urgent need for reforms in the
internal structure of couse r.t.c. done after. the world of winter sports. team russia dog the judgment was swift and he immediately became gospel for much of the olympic world ever since the infamous report on doping in russia saw the light of day but its claims of a state sponsored conspiracy the pretext for the ban have been shaken to their very foundation in the last few days bombshell one. twenty eight russian athletes make a comeback from a lifetime ban over the past few years the international olympic committee unleashed to the ultimate punishment on them following a damning verdict the cheated the tests it seemed that their dreams careers and lifetime goals were annihilated in one stroke but last thursday the top sports court had a different opinion on that the ban was no more those stripped of their medals got
them back the i.o.c. was both red faced and furious its members see the thing with bitterness and resentment but all things considered the i.o.c. had some trouble standing beside their initial ruling a lot of people asking hell the i.o.c. got the brief so wrong that they were able to throw it out so quickly. well let's let's let's you can look at the decision but let's let's see who will be competing here in the games coming up then we can have this conversation again the embarrassment is understandable the court of appeals decision to reverse the ban was among other things based on the testimony of the very same people who convinced the i.o.c. to impose the sanctions in the first place the mclaren report didn't find any individual violations of the rules of individual sports men because there was
only a very limited time the team of mr mclaren had fifty seven death bomb show. to. the russian paralympic team also had its very decided this week two years ago the doors of the summer games in real were slammed in their faces a blanket ban meant no one was welcome this february a team of almost eighty people will have a shot at the golds as so-called neutral athletes not great but it's something russians are regularly tested and they're amongst the most scrutinized that it's in the world and the discipline vision of why they are we now have a greater confidence that the anti doping system in russia is no longer a compromise and corrupt and given the latest winning streak for russia those athletes who have cleared their names in all likelihood will up their game he goes
on of. what was an emotional time for the russian athletes involved as you might understand you can see the reaction here of one cross country skier cleared of doping and after the verdict was heard many more russian outlets were in high spirits as they head of the alliance for their careers have essentially been left in limbo. loyalists in the north i found out about the decision during my training c.a.'s decided to overturn my disqualification my band i had only positive thoughts in my head about that i've been ready to ski for a long long time keeping up my training but i had a question right away what about the olympics are we able to dispute this and get an invitation but i was waiting for the results of the appeal when i came back from practice it's amazing yes then my scouts and team started congratulating each other such a relief when not guilty and the whole public will know that a lot of people thought we date only those close to us knew it's not tree. or you
say they are not guilty or you say they are guilty and they have ruled that there is not enough proof for a doping offense hence they are not guilty and this is very important also because it makes the mclaren report to become not in a basis which is enough to convict at leats and every sing that was done up to now was based on the mclaren report and if this is now not a basis enough to convict at let's then i do not understand why also all the russian at plates could have been banned collectively without having any any proof of the opening. this week the b.b.c. was accused of bias in its brags it coverage with the majority of its guests said
to have been in favor of remaining in the european union this according to several reports which prompted anger in britain's ice of the words. across our output as a whole we must be inclusive reflecting the breadth and diversity of opinion we must give due weight to the many and diverse areas of an argument. to leave has left us with a group of leaders who having lit the fire of all runaway breaks it is a historic mistake on is with it breaks my heart i lie in bed tonight the outcomes of backset once again i'm the sole lever on a.b.c. panel. frankly the p.p.c. has become the supporter over for organizing. for the european union of the
brics it's true mr david did this it to me recently that his job in brussels is move even more difficult if every time he makes a small advance that is probably on the mind by the b.b.c. get sure that in order because you do a duty of impartiality. we discussed the issue with the director general of the u.k.'s institute of economic affairs who was behind all of the reports critical of the b.b.c. . but it's true that we are no longer in a referendum period and it is true as the b.b.c. said in the statement they have furnished you with that it's no longer a binary choice but the problem is this although there are a wide range of choices really those range of options are subsets of the remain camp and the leave camp i think it's pretty poor that a public broadcaster a skewed that gets some panelists so dramatically in this direction on the top
political issue of the times. in general in britain establishment figures famous figures and influential people have tended to be in favor of e.u. membership it's more the ordinary man or woman who rebelled against the political stab recently tends to believe side seems to be the balance for people's views on breaks it make you show you have a fair share of voice from both ends and all ends of the argument should be a very very high priority indeed. i think the politicians on the leave side of the argument those who are in favor of pricks it are beginning to lose their patience with the b.b.c. but i would say that the b.b.c. now should be concerned that there are politicians who are seriously raising in the british parliament in the house of lords genuine concern about whether the b.b.c. really can be considered a neutral broadcaster one that doesn't just show
a diversity of views but a proper balance well the b.b.c. in response said its guests quote represent a range of the points the organization or stress states reporting reflects the fact that the debate over banks it has moved on and is no longer a simple binary issue. amidst a skyrocketing murder rate the u.s. city of baltimore is attempting another ceasefire but it's also got corrupt cops to contend with all the details in ninety seconds.
oh no appetite i mean for conflict is very very low these days public service much more eager to see economic improvement than they are to. actually get into a fight with a neighbor or or with other powers in the world. you're back with r.t. there is a ceasefire in the u.s. city of baltimore this weekend aimed at tackling the record high murder rate there

various charges including fraud drug trafficking and planting false evidence six out of the eight members of the group of pleaded guilty to charges of organized crime following the story from the city so miracle. the baltimore police department is now involved in one of the biggest scandals and u.s. law enforcement history for months now the court system has been trying to investigate corruption within the city's police force eight officers are on trial over drug trafficking racketeering robbery and planting fake evidence like drugs and b.b. . we would create false reports to cover up the robberies we were involved in. it was like aware of life where got away with a lot of things if proven guilty the officers and may face twenty to one hundred years in prison and six of them have already pleaded guilty and are now acting as witnesses in hopes of softening the moving verdict and their lawyers claim the officer still feel to over what they've done mr jenkins is extremely remorseful
he's been remorseful for a long time even before these charges were brought and he's relieved that today finally he was publicly able to accept responsibility for their client sorry for what they did or should. be so it seems regretful of what what happened i really don't have any comment meanwhile officers cases continue to be dismissed with hundreds under review and most of them involve incidents of officer switching off their body cameras to plant drugs or guns and then reenact seizing the evidence they had already planted. the high street behemoths hey chin em is back in the headlines after shoppers took offense at stocks it was selling which appeared to have the word allah printed on them it follows another scandal over an advert featuring a young black man he was wearing a hoodie bearing the phrase the coolest monkey in the jungle about to cause outrage even though the boy's own mother dismissed the claims that it had racist undertones
