this was not an ordinary situation i literally had minutes. once i was instructed by mr snow to make decisions that would affect his liberty like. racism in middle earth and. maybe victims of discrimination. in a warm welcome from me in the team here at. six in the morning and one also areas where leaders of the world's most industrialized economies are getting together.
4:02 am
the g. twenty summit kicks off in argentina in about four hours time and there's a lot at stake but two leaders have already made headlines even before the official opening cancelled his much awaited meeting with de mint potent as kind of morbid explains bated breath the world waited for another announced meeting between the presidents of russia and the united states but then lo and behold the twitter sphere lights up with news that the meeting is off the issue was the maritime incident between russia and ukraine but when trump was leaving for argentina it seemed to everyone that the meeting was still on roughly. we. think it's a very good. that was despite the media beating the drums of war why does this president seems so simple when it comes to vladimir putin a lot of demands on the president right now to get tough on russia we've got to be
4:03 am
tough with them it's the only thing putin understands or he just seems incapable of criticizing putin i don't want him to do that again stand next to putin and said well that was a provocation by the ukrainians that would not be in america's national interest just better not that the media coverage like this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone the last time the two leaders met the media went into a total meltdown hell think he was treated like an abomination now every aspect of the face to face meeting was question there were calls for the interpreter to testify before congress there were some who wanted the ball that putin gave to trump to be inspected for k.g.b. style bugs there were rumors that hypnotism could have been at play and amid all of this frenzy trump actually backtracked on some of his work. about election hacking president putin he just said it's not russian i will say this i don't see any reason why it would be working for want to. send should have been i don't see any reason why i wouldn't or why it went to russia sense then another meeting had been
4:04 am
in the works for months and the two leaders had plenty to discuss president trump would look forward to seeing you in paris it's still important to work in areas where there is a possibility of mutual cooperation president meet with president putin i think it will be a full agenda the issues that we have on security issues on arms control issues of regional issues including the middle east last month the two world leaders opted not to me not wanting to steal the thunder of the world war one commemorations this time they are stealing the founder of the g twenty by not having a meeting table mup and r.t. new york we spoke to some experts on the possible reasons for trump's decision to cancel his meeting with putin. i think this was all based on domestic politics there is growing concern in the u.s. congress and growing concern out amongst the american people about the investigation about the possibility of there being collusion between the
4:05 am
administration and moscow about trump's russia contacts period and so i think he's doing all he can now to demonstrate that there is no such thing as collusion there's no such thing as a. relationship between him and moscow that is anything other than formal and official and so he uses this in the cancellation of the meeting on the side of the buenos aires g twenty as a way of demonstrating that to his base and to the american people in the congress well it is surrounded unfortunately by a swamp as it's called in in washington d c. which is. the neoconservatives around the dick cheney circles the bush bush it ministry of the former bush administration and of course the neo liberal crowd
4:06 am
which is of the same group in the responsibility to protect crowd that wants to overthrow every government that is not to their liking and then of course was the crowd under obama and it's one in the same group being unfortunately trump is surrounded by some of these types. meanwhile the speculation the trunk called off the meeting with putin for a very different reason it's off the trumps form a lawyer michael cohen pleaded guilty to lying to congress in the russia collusion probe u.s. presidents then had some very strong words for cohen. he was convicted of various things unrelated that. he was given a fairly long jail sentence and he's a weak person. by being weak i'd like other people that you watch oh he's a weak person. what he's trying to do is get a reduced sentence so he's lying about a project that everybody knew about the u.s. leader was referring to a scrap project to build a trump tower in moscow only as a whole the lawyers said the talks on the project it ended in january twenty sixth
4:07 am
now we have met that was a lie and that the because the nation has continued into june when trouble is already the republican presidential nominee former wall street journal correspondent joe lauria told us that there have been efforts to stop from meeting his friends in a sense that summit in helsinki in the summer. time very well timed to release of kohen having lied about want not about collusion to change the election results but about a business deal that have been going on and maybe was still going on and he lied about it because he was afraid that it could be construed that way i don't really know exactly the details of that business deal but there's still no collusion but trump you will see how russia gate even without proof of collusion is having its effect on relations between the united states and russia you had to cancel this meeting and this is a very serious matter it's just it is internal politics that's having an international effect at the edgier you indictments were far more serious and and this summit was far more important terms of its build up thank you very much and
4:08 am
trump went to the summit in helsinki of course and the reaction here in the u.s. was beyond belief this time i think maybe trump got the message was for the g. twenty itself negotiations on where the world heads next to not expected to be gazing with nations divided on the solution is to many critical problems facing the world he puts rank as anyone else areas for us with more on what's ahead. right now there are two cities a boy and a scientist one behind these fences for the g. twenty leaders and one on this side for everyone else and it does make sense because those who are attending are the most powerful people in this world these are really the ones that are making our planet spin. gold the folks from that point aside us have recently made us realize that we are
4:09 am
in the living in a multi-polar world where everyone's holding on to their national interests and that head of the summit has led to a whole lot of problems between those who've been saying my country first. donald trump lately after china all the time he has blamed beijing for stealing to call jeep unfair trade and even meddling in the u.s. midterms the great ability we found that china has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming twenty eight. election against my administration because i am the first president ever to challenge china on trade beijing has been much more careful with what they're saying but they are giving out warnings to in the last century we had two world wars and in between them the great depression i don't think anybody should really try to have
4:10 am
a repetition of history these things should never happen again so people have to act in a responsible way. the brutal murder of journalist jamal khashoggi has been taken at stall on how the rest of the world's been dealing with saudi arabia's mohamed bin psalm on by the way has been in bonus office since wednesday on the snow this year we look at the monstrosity that happened and the sound was made in concert and it must be cleaned up as long as it's not. just the sound you bring yeah yeah i can assure you i thought. someone else saying go marco is not a big fan of is u.s. president donald trump along with one of her best european buddies emanuel macron they're trying to push for a european army and donald trump really hates that idea now mr macron who's really been trying to make an effort to become close friends with mr trump it seems is
4:11 am
beginning to have issues with the u.s. administration truth said some of trump's recent decisions have been done to the detriment of our allies. these fundamental overtones the legal basis for friendly ties between japan and south korea and it is extremely regrettable that was what you had to say on south korea's supreme court verdict ordering a japanese firm to pay compensation to koreans for forced labor during world war two and as you heard that could be enough to reignite old his studies between the countries. the u.k. spain feel divorced from you it might lead to a few awkward moments for two reason me. the prime minister will be looking for new friends at the summit and she's convinced other countries will feel the same way we
4:12 am
might as well bear all of that in mind when we see team g twenty getting together for the family photo perhaps some of those smiles will have to be faked. out if there's one constant at the g twenty no matter where it's held it's the days of mass mainly anticapitalist protests surrounding the summit and when i say aries is no exception. on two of the headline news now the lawyer who defended edward snowden in hong kong has revealed that the n.s.a. whistleblower had to flee the city back in two thousand and thirteen allegedly because of pressure from the chinese authorities what it's about talk to us exclusively on his claims that the whistleblower was hounded by police. when mr
4:13 am
snowden was in hong kong in two thousand and thirteen. it wasn't a situation where the most wanted man on the planet with the world's largest manhunt underway. this is this was not an ordinary situation i literally had minutes. you know once i was instructed by mr snowden to make decisions that it would affect his liberty in this life. a former cia employee snowden leaked a vast trove of classified national security agency data on u.s. government spying operations and then fled to hong kong where asylum seekers helped shelter him from the authorities for two weeks russia later granted him asylum and he's lived here ever since trying to out says it was edward snowden himself who took the decision to leave quote through a lawful and normal channel but robert insists that snowden was persecuted as were the other refugees who were sheltering him. december two thousand and sixteen when
4:14 am
i was in germany speaking at a conference the i received a phone call that the sri lankan police criminal investigation department had flown into hong kong specifically targeting the snowden refugees so once i received that information from some witnesses i contacted the clients and i advised them to leave their homes immediately and we had secure locations for them the first question police had for my clients was all about. mr snowden and i had to put a stop to this quite frankly i was shocked that the holcomb police were focusing on mr snowden's activities in two thousand and thirteen one in two thousand and seventeen. issue that the police had to address the safety and security of my clients. a growing number of shootings at schools and universities in the united states has got administrative scrambling for ways to protect everyone on campus one university of michigan's decided to teach staff and students to fight potential
4:15 am
shooters using whatever every day i object to come to hand. they have enough mass to cause injury small enough to be thrown. in a matter of seconds. no way you can lock a door with this it can't get shot out you can't get around it.
4:16 am
it's something that we should think about america about putting guns in the hands of law abiding citizens whether they actually be talented children or. a three year old cannot defend itself from a assault rifle by throwing i hello kitty pencil case that our founding fathers that i put an age limit on the second amendment. and you twisted accusations that don't transform a campaign chairman met julian assange i guess he's being accused of planting that story we'll tell you among all stories after the break.
4:17 am
you know world big partisan movie lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. the fate of julian assange is unclear washington is determined that he be sent to the u.s. to face criminal charges most likely under the one nine hundred seventy s. . the british government is more than happy to make this happen even the ecuadorians are in the army after we are watching unfold in front of our eyes is the criminalization of journalists.
4:18 am
and u.s. officials have confirmed that a deadly bombing raid earlier this week in afghanistan's helmand province was carried out by american warplanes local officials say thirty civilians were killed along with sixteen taliban fighters this young boy was in the area and survived the bombing the air strikes were called in by afghan government forces and u.s. advisors after they came under fire from the taliban in a compound the afghan government says local forces were not aware of any civilians in the area or relatives who have been describing what happened. but a number of different kind of around nine pm the first helicopters circling overhead and then a jet from the house but there were thirty people in the family all of them. the
4:19 am
one survivor is my nephew he was at my house is the only one who survived but the others die a six month old baby among them still and then a little my demand to the government is doing all why do they kill innocent people they didn't do anything wrong and. the sensational claims the president trumps for my campaign chairman met several times with wiki leaks founder julian assange has taken a new twist a former cia officer is questioning the story saying it might have been planted by russia more on that now from daniel hawkins. it's another link in the chain of the trump russia collusion probe the guardian article exposing alleged multiple meetings between the former chairman of trump's presidential campaign and wiki leaks founder julian assange and that's really caused quite a stir in the u.s. media story is shaking washington that is a bombshell of foreigners are held a secret meeting around the same time that man a four joined the tran campaign a direct connection between the campaign and wiki leaks they actually published
4:20 am
e-mails that were hacked by the russians now stolen by russian spies but doubt soon began to emerge about the article's content and sources but not to warry politico has the answer even if the guardian story is false it's all russia's fault you know i'm being serious rather than being the bombshell smoking gun that directly connects a trump campaign to wiki leaks perhaps the report is something else entirely a distant from asian campaign is it possible someone planted the story as a means to discredit the john lists that article was written by next year yeah agents under a pen name to prove a point the former officer draws our attention to those who dare question this bombshell russia's disinflation that has jumped into the ring to promote skepticism of the story sputnik one of russia's propaganda networks called the story into question and bolstered the skepticism by quoting tweets from other gone and glenn greenwald weekly itself r t also
4:21 am
a crime and mouthpiece neck and wiki leaks do you see a pattern here it's clear why there's some skepticism the story raises more questions than answers both x. and man of four strongly deny the meeting even threatening legal action ok perhaps they're both simply covering for each other you could say but assad is a man under close surveillance with police literally on his doorstep a few days pass yet no other source can confirm or show substantial evidence of manifolds alleged visit to the ecuadorian embassy or as a minister apparently the washington times says pull manifolds passports show he didn't even visit london in those years the guardian claim and r.t. hardly the only ones asking for evidence. who are the sources if you can see them doubt anonymous source and is dangerous at best striking catalogue of reflexive credulous acceptance of a story that looked shaky from the start and looks more so by the day maybe they've
4:22 am
all been duped by russia but what does politico think this fake news operation by russian intelligence actually proves someone is novice and eager to lay the groundwork for yelling fake news out what other stories are about to drop so either what the guardian says is true and there is collusion or it's a fake story planted by the russians which also proves collusion win win situation one thing seems clear someone is feeling the heat the stories almost of parity and x. cia agent using a pen name says that if the guardian's hit piece on assad's in metaphor is false the russians must be behind it anyway you really can't make this up. fans of the fantasy classic lord of the rings know that the beasts like orcs are a force to be reckoned with one side believes that the way that depicted in the books is racist and that has diet consequences for society.
4:23 am
looks like beat back on. its hard not to. hate it notion into. creatures that were sort of were raised. by adults. and not a great choice in the matter what.
4:24 am
are we not allowed to root against treacherous fictional cannibals anymore welcome to twenty one titled. clearly the races of men. should have welcomed the immigrants an x. and allowed them to feast on the mound freshly designed how terribly racist of it is just a good triumphs over evil story not meant to be that deep. germany's vice chancellor has floated the idea of the e.u. having a place at the. when security council by suggesting from should share its seat the french of held one of the five permanent seats said the united nations was formed in one hundred forty five. i realize this will take some convincing in paris but it would be a bold and smart go to lessen the pain of losing the powerful seat france could
4:25 am
become the permanent to the united nations as you might imagine the french u.n. ambassador is not keynes saying it contradicts the organization charter french and pays aren't exactly happy about it either the suggestion comes after president mccrone suggested the creation of an army earlier this month backing on that from germany's angela merkel political analyst alexander adler told us that germany is wrong to have made its un proposal public putting together all the europeans in one concept and one mccain ism is nearly impossible waiver germans have done so is exactly opposite to the release you. using a megaphone diplomacy to do is to hold the constraints of germany is one of the most efficient ways of course in such a question has to be discussed. in public. very much
4:26 am
such a moor been a representation in the security council a new european it institutions can be. created soley by a dialogue between germany and france and doing view and doing it so involves making the necessary concessions to other europeans is through recipe for disaster . that's the way look for moscow this hour that you would get off the cross talk on whether julian assange and his asylum days are numbered i mean for journalism. new chick or tony.
4:27 am
i'm a little but i think. we're buddies. i don't want that for a case that's funny as i knew she needed out of here not a yank on she. gets into any kind of seeking god's will name a female to move a little the last young enough to before out of the. same wrong. role just told. me to get to shape out disdain become educated and indeed from an equal betrayal.
4:28 am
when so many find themselves worlds apart when she's to look for common ground. in fact a recent poll of gallup poll shows fifty seven percent of americans want a more cooperative relationship with russia so there's a disconnect that a smart politician democrat would understand needs to be seen because there's not a lot of hunger appetite for this kind of and russian politics is being fanned by a media political establishment. oh.
4:29 am
hello and welcome to cross talk where all things considered i'm peter lavelle the fate of julian assange is on clear washington is determined that he be sent to the u.s. to face criminal charges most likely under the one nine hundred seventy espionage act the british government is more than happy to make this happen even the ecuadorians are in the me out but we are watching unfold in front of our eyes is
4:30 am
