8:05 am
however various agencies including the associated press and the washington post report that the democrats have agreed on 2 articles of impeachment one on abuse of power the other on obstruction of congress now if these are indeed the articles that will be introduced it indicates a very narrow form of impeachment focused on president trumps dealing with the ukraine and the allegation that he used his political position his position as president of the united states to get political information on an opponent for the next u.s. election then did the structure of congress charge would deal with the white house as attempts to interfere in that ongoing investigation into the ukraine situation their refusal to give witnesses their refusal to provide documents that had been subpoenaed now this could all move very quickly indeed there could be
8:06 am
a vote in the judiciary committee as soon as thursday that would then see a vote being taken on the floor of the house the following week and that in turn could lead to a trial in the senate in very early january. well on monday's public hearing of the judicial committee from another of our correspondents in washington heidi. fireworks inside of monday's impeachment hearing likely the last before the house judiciary committee draft articles of impeachment came not just from protesters but also republican members committed to showing that they believe the proceedings against trump are a sham. the schedule not to consider made a ruling if you were to appeal to them and was going to try to overturn the results of an election were not elected people to the gentleman who was then the witnesses were attorneys for both parties and though the facts were the same that trump froze

8:08 am
requires us to come to the defense of the nation trumps attorneys declined an invitation to attend the hearing signaling deliberately defend the president before the senate in a likely trial in january it's a disgrace to our country and south republicans hold the senate majority which means that obviously a conviction in the sun will fall well short of the 2 sorts requirement to remove president trump from office and i think you would likely expect that it would be entirely a partisan vote outside the ivory domes of the u.s. capitol polls show the american public is also strongly divided by party voters who identify as democrats strongly support the impeachment republicans are strongly opposed that about split the population evenly in halves with opinions unchanged since the beginning of this impeachment inquiry republicans say trump spate should be decided by the people in next year's elections but democrats say because trump

8:10 am
a headline heralded by democrats. i think there's spying did occur but the head of the justice department the attorney general william barr is dismissing that conclusion sending out a statement writing the inspector general's report now makes clear that the f.b.i. launched an intrusive investigation of a u.s. presidential campaign and the thinnest of suspicions that in my view were insufficient to justify the steps taken the report says the f.b.i. did make mistakes agents withheld a lot of information about carter page a trump aide when trying to get surveillance on him approved that's something the president and his allies are focusing on instead this was an attempted overthrow and a lot of people were in on it. and they got caught they got caught red handed i look forward to the durham report which is coming out in the not too distant future it's

8:24 am
. i think they don't really know about the details of what can or can't be the consequences of whatever ruling the i.c.j. does but they do understand that there is some kind of process underway to find some point of justice justice that they seek martina and more importantly they want to go home so of course they want to see people on trial and have some form of accountability but more importantly i mean you can see where we are at the biggest refugee camp in the world we're talking almost a 1000000 people those heartbreaking stories you heard in town there's half as well these are stories that everyone here anyone you speak to has a there are very similar story having lost entire family members mass rapes babies being ripped from their hands and started to fire you stories that are almost unimaginable almost unbelievable they are so violent so what's a people want of course is justice that they want to be able to go back home in mars just in the mountains behind us at the moment certainly there is no sign of
8:25 am
that happening so people here not everyone is aware of what's going on of course martin but the engineers here are educating the people there are legal groups also working to take the case to other bodies like the i.c.c. the i.c.j. of course is the court where state again state the international criminal court which is also looking into an investigation here is about bringing individuals to justice and at the moment certainly still none of that seems to be any close now the original exodus if you like a vis group of refugees i was in 2017 is now 2 years on to people really think really want to go back to me i'm a. they do that they want to do that with their safety assured and this is the big question mark we were here a couple of months ago when an official was visiting us from china and they were saying because they were trying to bring them back home not forcibly repatriate
8:26 am
them r.t. but those who wanted to go could go well no one wanted to go and people were telling us that because there are no assurances of safety the ranger that remain inside myanmar there are restricted in terms of their movement they have a lot of restrictions on how they can live there are no assurances from the authorities in myanmar the united nations hasn't been allowed access to the area to see what the situation is there's been research when it comes to satellite imagery that the original villages where these people were from had been completely razed to the ground there looked great so nothing there are no guarantees that these people who are trying to save can this is the key question here marty and we're facing a serious problem you have a population of almost a 1000000 people they are stateless they have no identity papers they're around a 100 babies being born into these camps every day so this is a population that's booming they're not going anywhere bangladesh no longer wants them the government and the local population are losing patience mere mortals that want them well this is a massive question mark where are they going to go and certainly i think it's
