9:02 am
place in july has led the democrats to the launch impeachment proceedings against donald trump the white house released a summary of the cole. the democrats have said it shows evidence possible campaign finance crimes by mr trump but the majority of republicans jumped to his defense. of the no call by the white house confirms this behavior which undermines the integrity of our election the dignity of any presidency and our national security that is the smoking gun it's right there in his own words he's admitted it and this means it is time for the house to do pietschmann proceedings what those notes reflect is a classic mafia like shakedown of a foreign leader what we have learned what has been admitted and what we see in writing. is about as damning as you can imagine this phone call is not an
9:03 am
impeachable offense our friends across the capital rush to judgment and deeper into their nearly 3 role impeachment addiction in this for in script there is no quid pro quo there is no improper leverage the democrats think they're going to peach on this i think it will be politically fatal. in the phone call from july donald trump presents alinsky to investigate the business dealings of potential 2020 presidential candidate joe biden. but there is no mention of threats to cut military aid being alluded to by democrats but here's alinsky on the sidelines of the un general assembly confirmed. i think good form called was normal we spoke about many and. i think you already know but it bullshit bushman yes. you know they would know for sure you have to do is see it when i want to call but
9:04 am
you know the effort you could ask the question and i appreciate the answer and i think that somebody if you look at what he did it is so bad for his son he goes to china he walks away with a video of their dollars he goes to ukraine that he walks away with $50000.00 a month and a lot of money in addition to that and the whole thing with the prosecutor in ukraine and he's ok this isn't like maybe he did it maybe he's out of shape doing this. has been reiterating he still wall and so it's corruption in folding his potential election rival joe biden the ukrainian company investigated the u.s. president's accusations don't extend beyond just one country as ortiz quarter reports. and trump's doing something there's a naysaying liberal media following close behind despite president trumpet rudy giuliani's repeated allegations against the biden's no evidence of wrongdoing tied to his son hunter biden's ukraine business has actually been found the allegations
9:05 am
against him which which have indeed been been proven baseless at least to this point these are proven claims that the president is making about bud right well he's making up to the allegations against the vice president i think that's really important to understand so does biden and his family have a squeaky clean track record let's look at the facts in 2014 biden was in charge of washington's policy stance for ukraine and for some reason his son was put on a ukrainian oil company's board of directors around that same time when a prosecutor launched an inquiry into that weird coincidence biden had this to say and i went over. the $1230.00 time to key event and i was good supposed to announce that there is another $1000000000.00 loan guarantee and i got a commitment from poroshenko and from. us and you know that they would take action against the state prosecutor and they did so that they're walking out. and i'm not
9:06 am
going to we're not going to give you $1000000000.00 shortly after the prosecutor was fired and the inquiry dropped biden said neither had to do with one another just another coincidence but let's go back to biden's 2013 trip to china for talks with president cheesing paying 10 days after that a subsidiary of the bank of china cut a deal with joe son hunter to form a $1000000000.00 joint investment fund another $1000000000.00 coincidence then there was 2011 when he oversaw u.s. troop withdrawal from iraq that same year joe's younger brother sealed a $1500000000.00 deal to build homes in you guessed. iraq there's plenty of money for everyone if this project goes through and that mountain of benjamin's 2 was only a coincidence it seems when you're related to the former vice president things just
9:07 am
tend to work out and joe's got no problem with it mr vice president your take on that was a conflict of interest there was a clear conflict of interest what you heard and people move along nothing to see here i'm not seeing how questions about well it could also be distracting us from what joe biden has done and others have been involved maybe there really is something there that's a question that's not coming through really the questions that are being asked in the hope i think for those who are were answered from this have this leads into really great. leaked information or juicy information not about joe biden but about donald trump. people who are upset with his politics and this could be a way to move us away from when joe biden might be involved in a family that. we may return to our story a little later in the program as new information. veils but for now let's move on to court in part through about the founder of the french me to movement the famed

them and she accused of making lewd sexist remarks that was back in 2017 speaking to me earlier our friends correspondent charge of defense. well sundram has been told to pay some $20000.00 euros in fines and damages after being found to have defamed to t.v. executives who she said had sexually harassed her now she is known as being the leader or the start of the me too movement here in france which is called pole which means rattling your pig and back in 2017 she had tweeted about an incident for many years before in which she had said it the executive who she went on to name and shame had made inappropriate advances to her but the t.v. executive in question says as a result of this he was labelled as a sex offender he received a huge parish of criticism on social media and he was unhappy he said even more so when she rejected his advances which he admits actually happened he then went on to
9:09 am
apologize effectively i did make misplaced comments to stand during a drunken cocktail party very late one night but only once i later i told her so heavy handedly and only once i must point out i don't want to exonerate myself from my boorishness of the time i retreat my apologies will sundram isn't happy with this verdict in the court neither is her lawyer and both say that they will now look to appeal. i didn't win the other woman and won i lost here today but in any case we win it all genders have started talking this decision doesn't take away from the fact that women's voices have been liberated that he must continue to speak out that he must continue to do now is reprehensible acts of any kind fear must not win here must not change sides well this isn't
9:10 am
perhaps the 1st embarrassment for the me too movement to think about the italian actress an activist asieh our center who is one of the. forbearers of the me too movement across the globe and also new york professor vito. who talked about being victims of sexually inappropriate behavior in the past but both women were later accused by young men of making them the victims of sexually inappropriate behavior and many people have long questioned this idea of naming and shaming people who are being accused of being sexual offenders or sexual predators given that in a public space such as social media there's often little to no evidence to back up that those allegations those claims have got a real grain of truth to them and many people saying why didn't you take them to the courts in the 1st place and some saying as a result of that their careers have also been growing their personal lives have
9:11 am
also being ruined so some people question now where the this defamation case marks a real reversal in the fortunes of me to movement not perhaps just here in france but across the globe with many other people perhaps looking at this case and wondering if the 2 now could bring their own defamation case. another significant story to bring you this is national crime agency has found no proof of wrongdoing by the braggs of campaign group leave dot one of its fundraisers or in banks it clears him of receiving donations for the brags of campaign from a foreign source namely russia with more on the story part of. britain's national crime agency says it's dropping an investigation into our and banks one of the biggest donors behind the referendum campaign the n.c.a.a. looked into potential offenses concerning $8000000.00 pounds worth of funding it
9:12 am
was claimed banks wasn't the true source but the inquiry found banks illegally took out a loan from a company and so he could give the money to the branch that campaign the n.c.a.a. invest. geisha and has concluded that mr banks was legally entitled in his capacity as an individual to release these funds to the better for the country limited by instructing another of his company's rock services ltd to make the transactions on his behalf but it's worth noting the n.c.a.a. felt the need to highlight the hype surrounding the case the investigation has been subject to press and social media commentary the n.c.a.a. has not received any evidence to suggest that mr banks and his companies received funding from any 3rd party to fund the loans or that he acted as an agent on behalf of a 3rd party why is this important because our in banks with the russian ambassador to the u.k. a few times as well as russian businessmen as is often assumed by associating with
9:13 am
russians you must be a russian agent something bangs. that crimea you know what the police are going to investigate lunch with the russian ambassador butler university case but the media seems eager to find a russian connection or exit is now being pinned on russian interference baron banks has been dogged by repeated accusations of close links with russia the parallels between the russian intervention and brag and the russian intervention in the trump campaign appear to be extraordinary so we go they travel to south africa to find one they also filmed russian opposition figures with no knowledge of the case as they brought up his russian wife mr banks is a perfectly good reason to visit russia whenever he wants his family he has 3 children by his russian wife in 2015 aaron banks tried to raise money in russia to invest in his lines here in south africa and surprisingly they try to connect banks with donald trump and felt it was newsworthy to discuss banks some time visit to

9:15 am
impacted the elites in britain both in the politics in civil service and in business and media that they needed to find the enemies they needed to find a way of discrediting the whole campaign and so the 1st thing they did was start to attack the donors to the campaign to leave and of course mr our own banks and the leave means to leave movement came into the firing line of their anger without a doubt this was a witch hunt it was a witch hunt against those who campaigned for brix it like myself and the leaders of the movement it was a campaign to discredit those who donated it and they also tried to discredit it by saying that there was collusion from other nations such as russia that there was russian money behind mr r. and banks and all of this was to discredit the movement discredit the referendum it was a disgrace and should be something that's looked into by

know the welcome to. the firing of john bolton as president trumps national security adviser made as much of a splash as he's hiring in april of 2018 see him as the president's man in the beginning. of the white house as you strong upon and leaving many people gassing what the national security process comes down to these days to discuss that i'm now joined by matt cells started professor of public policy at the university of maryland professor it's a privilege for me to talk to you thank you very. much for your time. is a privilege to be with you thank you for inviting me now about the daycare that go
9:28 am
you published a very influential book on the history of president's national security advisers as i was reading it it occurred to me that in this capacity john bolton was truly one of a kind if you were writing that book today would he warrant a separate chapter. i suppose we would have a separate chapter on all or all 3 are now 4 of the people of the time trump has chosen to be a national security advisor but bolton would get the most emphasis i think i think he's probably the most colorful of all dr absolutely and also the man who came in with very very strong opinions and not a lot of tolerance for other people's opinions and now in your book with the elder is called in the shadow of the oval office and personality wise john bolton the somebody who likes to take the center stage wasn't it he's repeated when cheering
9:29 am
out of the shadows that ultimately paved his way out of the oval office i think that was part of it i think in other words he became identified with positions the president didn't support and then he publicly argued with them and try to mobilize coalitions against the president he had him to change his mind national security advisor is supposed to be a confidential aide to the president and ideally have a little rather low profile but he was anything but that i know you blamed mr bolton for essentially the institutionalizing of the work of the national security council you called him the antithesis of what a national security advisor is supposed to be but as far as i understand nobody except the president can decide what a national security adviser is supposed to be with all due respect it's only he's for robert if i'm not bought off of the senate or distinguished scholars like
9:30 am
yourself am i right absolutely that this is the problem of writing about this there is developed over the last 50 plus years since john f. kennedy appointed me george bundy to this position there's developed a consensus among analysts and people who work and to go. from about what the national security advisor should and should not do and a lot of that has involves a low profile being a reliable broker between the president and other is in the in the president's office and generally making the policy process work smoothly but he and both it has essentially been the antithesis of this plan the problem is of course the president chooses presidents don't necessarily read our books or if they do they don't follow our recommendations but on the other hand when the ball tonight was a point of.
