1:10 am
with security forces in baghdad although a smaller gathering and seen in the last two weeks in the south of iraq it's still a significant number for the capital showing solidarity with protesters in the south on the edge of the matza here more than two but we came out to protest the injustice and lack of job opportunities for the unemployed the government isn't listening to us. but even with a small amount of people involved we will continue to protest this time it's make or break for us the protesters break free of a barbed wire cordon set up by the federal police. the protests spreading to the capital and then nationwide it is a concern for iraq's leaders he was never meant to isolate the big white students was finally put in place unprecedented security operation they say they are trying to beat the protests tomorrow but they may not be able to meet all of the time

the tape but says the payments were never actually made i want house correspondent can really help it has more this recording seems to reveal the president discussing with his personal attorney michael cohen the payment. money in the form of check fully one hundred fifty thousand dollars this is problematic for the president given that he has denied he ever had an affair with karen mcdougal the playboy model the white house saying this was fake news and that the president never had such a relationship the recording seems to contradict that statement of course the president at the time of this alleged affair also married with an infant son certainly problematic on a personal level so this really brings up the question of what the president knew and when he knew it it's also a concern given the fact that there is a separate investigation that is ongoing in all of this and that is the one being conducted by robert muller the special counsel well these two investigations are
1:13 am
separate the one into michael cohen trumps personal attorney and the one into whether or not there was russian interference in the twenty sixteen u.s. election and whether the trump campaign colluded with russia with this information is shared it could be problematic for the president given the fact that if michael cohen in order to save himself from the charges he is currently facing he could decide to cooperate with the special counsel and that could certainly be risky for donald trump. still ahead for you on the program raising the stakes trump friends to slap five hundred billion dollars of trade tariffs on china the global markets reacting sharply. and emotional scenes in eritrea as an ethiopian journalist is reunited with his wife and daughters after eighteen years.
