3:49 am
economic crash if he is impeached. and arrested allegedly beat in custody freed by military courts then rearrested ugandan politician bobby wine is charged with treason. so then first to yemen where hooty rebels say dozens of children have been killed in saudi led airstrikes he t.v. is reporting warplanes targeted a camp for internally displaced people in one day it is there a he me district and let's go straight to allan fisher is following developments from neighboring down in tell me what more you found out about what's happened. well we're trying to piece this together from local reports on the ground in yemen that we've been receiving over the last couple of hours we know that there was an airstrike in guerrilla fico which is also in the same district according to you
3:50 am
each state media that was carried out by who see fighters and it killed one child in a couple of hours later there was an attack also in the same district at this time carried out by the sodium led coalition and according to local reports on the ground there more than thirty people were killed there saying at least twenty of them were children and local journalists on the ground are quoting the health ministry in sanaa as a way of confirmation if this was to be the case of course it comes just two weeks after the saudi led coalition carried out an attack on a school bus which killed fifty people forty of them children and it was later reported that the miss l. used in that attack actually came from the united states. is the question of why the united states was involved in the own going conflict in yemen calling for a withdrawal of u.s. forces and so if it's proved again that in this instance if it was
3:51 am
a missile from the united states fired by the saudi led coalition that will lead to greater coles questioning at the united states intervention and involvement in what's going on in yemen now we've also had in the last cup. where problems with the island there. you will get back to him just as soon as we can but clearly these technical issues are nowhere. no the united nations is calling on south american countries to keep their borders open for fleeing venezuelans thousands are leaving the country every day is an economic crisis back home deepens colombia says more than a million people of sixteen months and it wants the u.n. to appoint a special envoy to help manage the crisis in america. is live for us in
3:52 am
caracas tell us more about the latest situation. as you may remember the government announced late last week that it was completely revamping the currency devaluing the ninety four percent then introducing a new currency and so what we're seeing now today for the very first time since i began is more activity out on the streets because for the first time in more than a year there is actually trash in people's hands that was one of the most modern in this country or at least now people are going out and buying perishable goods and the rest of the city we're seeing the businesses remain shuttered as the government introduces new price controls to try to keep the prices down to try to control what people here call the monster which is hyperinflation which has sent the economy here into freefall and which the i.m.f. says will reach one million percent before the end of this year and that of course is simply feeding the exodus of venezuelans who don't believe that this new plan
3:53 am
will work who think that really the only way they can save themselves is to simply get out of here as fast as they can. this is santa on phyllis's last day in her working class neighborhood she sold everything possible and packed the rest as she and her sister her two daughters and therefore small children prepare to abandon. i have to get my daughter out of here before it's too late. for three year old can't speak since she had a stroke provoked she's. says by the lack of medicine to treat her repeated convulsions half of them will go to peru the rest to chile to join husbands and sons but sandra is angry. we wanted to remain here in my beloved venezuela the best country in the world until my door destroyed it we're leaving half of our family behind our family is now scattered. indeed oil rich
3:54 am
venezuela is unrecognizable disease hunger uncontrollable violence and hyperinflation are driving millions from a country where poverty has reached eighty percent president nicolas maduro blames u.s. financial sanctions but they don't begin to explain a crisis that began long before they were imposed a year ago. what is happening is of such gravity that it looks as though we were going through a terrible war like syria except there is no war and it's the expectation that things will get even worse it is nourishing the stampede. not that it's easy to leave a passport is worth its weight in gold to my money that i need but how is no way to get a passport and lease to pay two thousand dollars under the table which i don't have . that's when the passport office official asked us to move away. those lucky enough to have a passport come here to catch
3:55 am
a bus going to peru via colombia and ecuador like everything else the bus tickets go on day by day so the people who are lining up here are doing so not to get a new ticket but to pay the difference someone they bought a month ago at four hundred and forty now they have to pay eight hundred eighty one they can't get on the bus it's prohibitive so like many others alexander is leaving for peru to try his luck with his pockets empty. there's no work a consequence my family obama milk and diapers my baby so i have no choice. as the departure time nears the waiting room begins to look and feel like a mass funeral parlor husbands wives children and fiances say goodbye to each other and certain what will become of those who leave. or of those who must stay behind a tragedy that's taking place every single day in every corner of an israel or to
3:56 am
see a new. well nick at that bus terminal that you saw is one of the few one that is actually providing buses now to the border because they are charging in hard currency in all the other ones that we visited today they were closed we saw hundreds and hundreds of people putting their names on lists but they were told that the buses to the colombian border had been suspended until further notice and so people are saying that they can't wait anymore that they will probably just begin walking back so you see a worsening situation that as you said thanks very much indeed for that thank you. well u.s. president donald trump has responded to speculation about the possibility of impeachment as two former aides face jail time former lawyer michael cohen implicated trump in a federal crime when he pleaded guilty to breaking campaign finance laws saying he did so trump's direction well in an interview with the fox news channel donald trump said there would be an economic crash if he was no longer president i don't
3:57 am
know how you can impeach somebody who's done a great job. i'll tell you what if i ever got impeached i think the market would crash i think everybody would be very poor. because without this thinking you would see you would see numbers that you wouldn't believe well let's get more now from several times in life for some washington d.c. for us it's kind of a classic trump riposte asking how he can be impeached when he's improved the economy. right but he has reason to be to have confidence because there's no chance he will be impeached unless the democrats take the house of representatives in the november midterm elections and that's what's gets quite interesting because the democratic leadership has told its kind that's not to talk about impeachment on the campaign trail what they fear is that this impeachment issue will gather steam and fire up trumps base and bring them in droves to the polls which will wolf which will mean that the democrats call it retake the house of representatives in fact republican strategist is saying that they you know they should they should roll
3:58 am
impeachment and say this is going to be a referendum on whether trump was impeached because evidence that was a basis rather complacent right now that there's nothing to worry about and if i'm appalled because trump himself says this there is nothing to worry about it does get interesting though as well because even if the democrats do take the house and they'd be very courageous to try to impeach trump on campaign finance problems because the democratic party is part of the swamp too and has loads of campaign finance problems as well probably better to try to impeach him on something else in that t.v. interview president trump he was very critical was the of the justice department and now the u.s. attorney general jeff sessions is has hit back what did he say. right so jeff sessions you tony general says that he's firmly in charge of the pub of justice is terribly successful and that the d.o.j. won't be improbably improperly be influenced by political considerations that sell to trump said in that fox interview that sessions never really took control of the d.o.j. and also what kind of man is jeff sessions for taking the job of attorney general
3:59 am
and then recusing himself from the russian investigation however trump did say in that interview that he would remain involved however lindsey graham a set of who is also a golfing buddy of trump has been giving interviews saying he thinks sessions days all numbered and he might be fired off of the after the midterm elections and that leads to all sorts of questions as to what sort of shakeup might be in store for the d.o.j. what info that might have on the russian destination whether that might leave donald trump open to further allegations of structure of justice and these are all the speculative ingredients to the to the current soup in washington right now anyway yes never a dull moment in the current. reports around the publisher of the national enquirer where they were about right david peca is an old friend of donald trump and he's a publisher and the allegations against him that he wasn't just acting as a magazine publisher during the campaign of twenty sixteen he was an integral part
4:00 am
of the trump presidential campaign trying to find areas of possible danger for donald trump what i guess bill clinton used to call bimbo eruptions i suppose and then try to neuter them in the way a famous example being you know paying lots of money to someone who claimed to have had an affair with donald trump and then sat on the story so that the story would never would never come out now he has not gotten immunity deal. it is illegal in the us for a corporation to act in concert and coordination with a political campaign for the benefit of one candidate so that's trouble for him if he now says that donald trump was completely aware of this coordination was helping coordinate that's trouble for donald trump as well. good as may never stops she have thanks very much indeed for every turn see everybody from washington d.c. are you watching our journey live from london still to come here on the program south africa accuses donald trump of fueling racial tensions after he tweeted that farmers were being forced off their land and build.
