democracy itself is in the crosshairs free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our democracy and it has become clear that they are the target of our adversaries the white house says those adversaries include not just russia accused of meddling in the twenty sixteen presidential vote but also china iran and north korea. and his summit in finland with russian president vladimir putin trump was reluctant to point fingers at the kremlin he just said it's not russian it's a statement he later backtracked to send should have been i don't see any reason why i wouldn't or why it wouldn't be russia russia denies any interference in two thousand and sixteen at a geneva meeting in august bolton's russian counterpart refused to sign a joint statement that included the election meddling allegations still u.s. intelligence expects there will be more attempts to interfere trump's new executive

11:57 am
. the saudi like coalition has been criticized for indiscriminately targeting civilians while trying to go after the rebels who are trying to take control of the country of yemen. coalition has denied these allegations and it's also been facing criticism on behalf of its main military supporter the united states the u.s. has now certified that so far as best as it can determine the saudi like coalition including the government of saudi arabia and the united arab emirates are taking reasonable precautions to ensure that civilians are not targeted injured or killed in the conflict with the fighters in that country now this certification has been made by the secretary of state pompei o at the insistence by the requirements of congress through the terms of the new defense budget after mr prompt a.o.

said that the examination of the facts shows that the precautions are being taken but so far a public version of that certification has not been made the pentagon is supporting the certification because it does feel that it is important to bring the these to heel and to try to restore order and to restore the hardy government in sanaa but again the details of the certification have yet to be made public but this is something that is going to perhaps bring more concentration of criticism on to the united states because it provides both the saudis and the emirates ease with their military weapons with their aircraft with military training and support and so there is a real concern that this military support if it is in fact being used against civilians indiscriminately could be a violation of the leahy act which says that the u.s. must cut off military aid to countries that don't use their military equipment for
