political flashpoints and deepening trade routes the g. twenty leaders gather in argentina unexpectedly cause much anticipated encounter with. edward snowden. to flee hong
5:01 am
kong in twenty thirty after pressure from chinese authorities. this is this was not an ordinary play literally minutes. i was instructed. to make decisions that would affect his liberty like. racism in middle earth. or classical. discrimination. and for me in the team here. one pm here in moscow seven in the morning in leaders of the world's most industrialized economies will get together in just a few hours time.
5:02 am
the g. twenty summit kicks off in argentina later this friday with a lot at stake but two leaders have already made headlines even before the official opening is donald trump canceled his much awaited meeting with vladimir putin as candid more than 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 i probably would. have a service. that. 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
5:03 am
a lot of demands on the president right now to get tough on russia we've got to be tough with them it's the only thing putin understands 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 words 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. sent should have been i don't see any reason why i
5:04 am
would or why it would be rush sense then another meeting had been in the works for months and the two leaders had plenty to discuss president trump would look forward to seeing you in paris still in order to work in areas where there is a possibility of mutual cooperation president meet with president putin i think it . be a full agenda the issues that we have on security issues on arms control issues and 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 thunder of the g. twenty by not having a meeting table mup and r.t. new york from a top u.s. state department official lawrence wilkerson believes it's the russia collusion allegations that moved from to counsel the putin meeting i think this was all based on domestic politics there is a growing concern in the u.s. congress and growing concern out amongst the american people about the
5:05 am
investigation about the possibility of there being collusion between the 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 the latest i've been there is the president trumps form a lawyer michael cohen pleaded guilty on thursday to lying to congress in the continuing russia collusion probe as a result the us president had some strong words for cohen. he was convicted of various things unrelated that. he was given a fairly long jail sentence and he's
5:06 am
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 earlier code it said that talks on the project that ended in twenty sixteen but now he admits that was a lie and that the negotiations continued into june when trump was already the republican presidential nominee for the wall street journal correspondent joe lauria told us that there have been efforts to stop trump meeting with putin at the since the summit in helsinki. time very well timed to release of kohen having lied about what not about collusion to change the election results but about a business deal had 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
5:07 am
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 g.r.u. indictments were far more serious and this summit was far more important terms of its build up thank you very much and 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. back to the g. twenty itself and think o.c.a. sions on where the world heads next to not expected to be easy over the next two days with nations divided on the solutions to the many critical problems facing the world. is when i say it is 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
5:08 am
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 and be living in a multi-polar world where everyone's holding on to their national interests and that ahead 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 us mid terms china has been attempting to interfere in our election i am the first president ever to
5:09 am
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 the great depression 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 and 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 a lot of since wednesday on the snow this year when you look at the monstrosity that happened in sound was made in concert in tukey as long as it's not that would be nice exports to saudi arabia. someone else saying hello marco is not a big fan of is us president donald trump along with one of her best european buddies emanuel macron they're trying to push for
5:10 am
a european army and donald trump really hates that idea mr macron who's really been trying to make an effort to become close friends with mr trump it seems is beginning to have issues with the u.s. administration treats said some of trump's recent decisions have been done to the detriment of. the u.k.'s painful divorce might lead to a few awkward moments for 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 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.
5:11 am
if there's one constant at any g twenty no matter where it's held it's the days of mass mainly anticapitalist protests surrounding the summit and when i say race is no exception. on to our other headline news then the lawyer who defended edward snowden in hong kong has revealed the n.s.a. whistleblower had to flee the city back in twenty thirteen because of pressure from the chinese authorities robert to pose talked exclusively to us on his claims that the whistleblower was hounded by police. when mr snowden was in hong kong in two thousand and thirteen. it was in a situation where the most wanted man on the planet with the world's largest
5:12 am
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 would affect his liberty in this life form a cia employee snowden leaked evolves trove of classified national security agency data on u.s. government spying operations he 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. and china says it was edward snowden himself who took the decision to leave quote through a lawful a normal channel but robert insists snowden was persecuted as were the other refugees who were sheltering in. december two thousand and sixteen when 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
5:13 am
that information from some witnesses i contacted the clients and advised them to leave their homes immediately and we had to secure locations for them the first question the police had for my clients was all about. mr snowden and i had to put a stop to this quite frankly i was shocked at the local police were focusing on mr snowden's activities in two thousand and thirteen one in two thousand and seventeen . the issue that the police had to address were 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 stuff and students to fight potential shooters using whatever everyday objects come to hand. they have enough mass to cause injury small enough to be thrown.
5:14 am
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.
5:15 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 how to train a three year old cannot defend itself from a rifle by throwing a hello kitty pencil case at it our founding fathers that i put an age limit on the second amendment. and you twisted accusations that donald trump's former campaign chairman made julian a song guess who's been accused of planting the story among our stories after the break. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s.
5:16 am
has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crime tamping each day. eighty five percent of global wealth he longs to be ultra rich eight point six percent market saw a thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per second first second and fifth when rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars ai industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only number you need to remember is one one business shows you can afford to miss the one and only.
5:17 am
again 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 airstrikes were called in by afghan government forces and their 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 at the time relatives of the dead have been describing what happened there but never gibran it around nine pm the first helicopters overhead and then a jet from the house there were thirty people in the family all of them. one survivor is my nephew he was at my house is the only one who survived the others die of a six month old baby among them in the third or the my demand to the government is
5:18 am
to know me why do they kill innocent people they didn't do anything wrong. sensational claims the president trumps former 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 that it might have been planted by russia more on that from daniel hawkins it's another link in the chain of the trumped 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 naturally it's caused quite a stir in the us media story is shaking washington that is a bombshell of foreigners are held a secret meeting around the same time that manna for join the trunk campaign a direct connection between the campaign and wiki leaks they actually published e-mails that were hacked by the russians email stolen by russian spies but doubt soon began to emerge about the articles content and sources but not to warry politico has the answer even if the guardian story is false it's all russia's fault
5:19 am
you know i'm being serious rather than being the bombshell smoking gun that directly connects the trump campaign to wiki leaks perhaps the report is something else entirely a distance from ation campaign is. possible someone planted the story as a means to discredit the journalists that article was written by next year yeah agent under a pen name to prove a point the former officer draws our attention to those who dare question this bombshell rush's disinflation network 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 ever gone and glenn greenwald weekly itself r t also a crime and mouthpiece but neck and wiki leaks d.c. 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
5:20 am
they're both simply covering for each other you could say but assad has 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 guards or 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. are 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 all been duped by russia but what does politico think this fake news operation by russian intelligence actually proves someone is nervous and eager to lay the groundwork for yelling fake news out whatever other stories are about to drop so
5:21 am
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 the power to the next cia agent using a pen name says that if the guardian piece on a song in metaphor is false the russians must be behind it anyway you really can't make this up. with the fantasy classic lord of the rings' know that the beast like orcs are a force to be reckoned with but once believed the way that depicted in the books is racist and that has die of consequences for society. looks like beat back on.
5:22 am
it's hard not to. pay to know surely i'm told some races are. creatures that were sort of were raised out of the error. and not a great deal of choice in the matter what. are we not allowed to root against treacherous fictional cannibals anymore welcome
5:23 am
to twenty in one title. clearly the races of men elves and dwarves should have welcomed the immigrating orcs and allowed them to feast on all the mound freshly desired how terribly racist often it is just to good triumphs over evil story not meant to be that deep. germany's vice chancellor has floated the idea of the a you having a place at the u.n. security council by suggesting the front should share its seat front of held one of the five permanent seats since the united nations was formed back in one thousand nine hundred five. i realize this will take some convincing in paris but it would be a bold and smart goal to lessen the pain of losing the powerful seat france could become the permanent boss to the united nations as you might imagine the french u.n. ambassadors knock a note saying that it contradicts the organizations charter french and pays are
5:24 am
exactly happy about it either the suggestion comes after president mccrum suggested the creation of an e.u. army earlier this month and go back in on that from germany's angela merkel political analyst alexander adler says it was a bad move to make the un proposal public. putting together all the europeans in one concept and one mccann ism is nearly impossible waiver germans have done so is exactly opposite. thing release you. using a megaphone diplomacy to do it. constrains of germany is the most efficient way of course in such a question has to be discussed. public. very much such a very i'm european a representation in the security council a new european institutions can be. created soley by
5:25 am
a dialogue between germany and france and doing been doing so in votes making the necessary concessions to other europeans is through recipe for disaster. a new in this hour there's an escalation of the latest showdown between moscow and kiev the ukrainian government announced in the past hour or so that russian males aged between sixteen and sixty will be banned from entering the country crimea in our senior correspondent more against the album on this high that more of the guessing this is down to the martial law being imposed what else can you tell us about the move. well the baton on russian men age sixteen to sixty entering ukraine it has been in force for a few days now but now i have official confirmation that it is in force this follows on of course from martial law being inactive across many regions in the
5:26 am
country to apparently heighten security and this measure in particular banning russian men from entering the country president poroshenko has is linked to preventing russia from forming pride. armies in ukraine which is difficult to imagine but then again mr poroshenko has over the years predicted the imminent russian invasion numerous times nevertheless moscow has reacted the foreign ministry has said that this latest act carried out by the regime in kiev is merely a political ploy it's an attempt to shore up the ratings ranks fourth in the polls for presidential elections and presidential elections are only four months away and suddenly we have martial law being enacted meal four months before elections this follows on of course from ukraine's ban on no foreigners for
5:27 am
making their way into crimea. if they aren't ukrainian citizens in ukraine citizens can enter crimea from from ukraine this is of course complicated the job of journalists that are seeking to cover events in. ukraine itself in crimea as well there's also complicated things for families or relatives there are millions of people both in russia in ukraine with relatives on the other side and this measure is doing to drastically complicate you know contact basic contact with their families nevertheless on the topic of journalist we've seen a c.n.n. crew and to marry you paul which is the sea which is a city on the shores of the sea they're there to cover the latest events this latest escalation between ukraine and russia and their correspondent seems surprised by what the locals are saying. if we had a normal president she says women work like this in this kind of job. i have
5:28 am
relatives in russia that's another russian conflict. nevertheless this latest measure banning the entry of russian men is. that it will increase security prosperity in ukraine especially in these desperate dime's both economically and politically for ukraine. ok well thanks for bringing us up to date or i guess they have a coach in crimea thanks for that. for now the g. twenty is due to go in the next couple of hours well so we're across not only. over the next couple of days also time now though to check in with commissioner chilton who bust.
5:29 am
i'm a little bit i think ended up by one when there's real body. should have been there so. i don't want that or any case that's let me. into that community yeah i am kind of . feeling that he had a ticket. he may have to move a little the one that you know enough to vote for out of the.
5:30 am
in fact a recent poll a gallup poll showed fifty seven percent of americans want a more cooperative relationship with russia so there is a disconnect that is smart politician democrat would understand needs to be seen because there's not a lot of hunger or appetite for this kind of any rush and all it takes is being stand by media political stuff. u.s. veterans who come back from war often tell the same stories. were going after the people and were killing civilians they were not interested in the well being of their own soldiers either there are already several generations of them so i just got this memo from the circular defenses office says we're going to act and destroy the governments and seven countries in five years americans pay for the wars with their money others with their lives if we were willing to go into harms way.
