3:01 am
poland borders. thousands of migrants remain stuck for yet another night. freezing cold conditions and often politics all set for collision at hong kong. ambitious need molten optimism. ah, former donald trump aid steve barden has been formally charged with 2 criminal acts for dissipating a congressional order. 67 year old was chief strategists and trump's white house. he was subpoenaed and is refusing to testify in front of the congressional committee investigating the attack on the capital on january 6th. the committee is trying to determine the origins of the attack that was planned by trumps porters to stop the certification of president biden's 2020 election when as get more details or less, we can go to kristin's fleming's life for us in your kristen. so talk us through these charges and how significantly are well,
3:02 am
there are 2 charges here of contempt of congress, one for failing to testify before the house committee investigating the january, 6, breach of congress and other failing to produce documents related to that investigation as well. the committee has said that it has reason to believe that bannon has information crucial to their investigation. he has made statements. it did make statements on the record in a podcast the day before that congressional attack. a saying that he expected things were going to get there were going to be extreme events. after a rally that was planned at the capital that day, he said that all hell was going to break loose. and so because of making these statements, congress wanted to talk about him to find out more exactly about what he knew about
3:03 am
the planning for that event. that the house voted to hold him in contempt of court . when he refused to comply and sent the bindings to the court system, a u. s. attorney finding that there was indeed evidence to bring formal criminal charges against him. so this is really sending a message to other trump allies in the last week or so more than a dozen other subpoenas and request for information have been sent to other former white house officials, campaign staffers, and pro close friends of the former president. the president has been arguing executive privilege because he was president. he doesn't have to provide certain information and his followers have been using that same excuse to not appear before congress. one judge, however, has already found that executive privilege claim is not valid. that is being
3:04 am
appealed by the president and moving forward, but this finding today is criminal charges to day. certainly send a message that the courts are taking this very seriously and it could put pressure on other witnesses to now cooperate or face criminal charges. thanks for that, kristen. slay me that for us in new york, we can now talk to bruce fine, who's a former usaa associate deputy attorney general. a joins us by skype from washington, d. c. many thanks for speaking to us. i guess the key question is will this indictment push band in to testify and provide that additional insights into january 6th or do you think he's just gonna stay to his position by withholding information? i think he'll stay silent. i think he has hopes trump will be elected in 2024 and will pardon him for the contempt of congress conviction. but i think what this case reveals is the dare election of congress to end the delaying tactics that deny the
3:05 am
american people the urgent need to know what transpired on january 6th. what were the motives behind it? because it was the most serious effort in the history of the united states, basically to overthrow our constitutional system for peaceful transfers of presidential power. the united states supreme court has repeatedly affirmed the power of congress to inherently punish those who defy its a penis with imprisonment in congressional detention centers by fines. and even with regard to impeachment, the congress of the united states voted an article of impeachment against richard nixon. for flouting one subpoena until all of this court maneuvering can be avoided if congress will just step up to the plate and assert its progress of inherent contempt authority and make these people pay a penalty immediately. the unfortunate thing about the law is that in court systems, it's lead foot not mercury footed. and oftentimes the information comes out when it stale and no longer politically relevant. and i think that's what's gonna happen
3:06 am
here. they'll be all sorts of skirmishing about privilege rules and going up on appeal. congress just bite the bullet and say mr. ban and you're going to detention in our facilities right now. and until you create testify, you'll stay there. so you do think realistically that he could face jail time? yes, i do think that's accurate. i do think unlike many the others of who are involved in january 6, he was communicating to the president, not in any official capacity. he was just a private citizen. and there really is no precedent for communications, not between the president and staff, but president private citizens being covered by executive privilege. moreover, the united states supreme court has never once held that executive privilege can be asserted against congress. never. once i've tried to it made evaluations of asserting it against judges, the nixon case, it is not an absolute privilege,
3:07 am
but i do not believe even this supreme court, which is populated by 3 justices appointed by president trump wood for the 1st time in 234 years say that president executive branch or even a former president kanai congress. this plenary power of oversight to ensure we have government in the sunshine and that all worries about corrupting the process of politics and elections are discharged by oversight. and full information for is fine, really good to get your thoughts for my u. s. associate deputy attorney general speaking to staff from washington d. c. thank you. the you and climate, some in glasgow has gone into over time as delegates trying to reach an agreement on a draft plan to protect the planet from catastrophic global warming representatives from nearly 200 countries having their say on the plan. the core aim is to cap global warming at $1.00 degrees. now for this to happen,
3:08 am
the well needs to cast emissions by 45 percent by the year 2030, and a chief carbon neutrality by 2050. that has been some progress. china in the us, the wells top greenhouse gas emitters, say they will increase cooperation deals and deforestation. cut methane gas and phase out fossil fuels has also been made. but financing, the transition remains a key sticking point. analysts say current pledges are not enough and the earth is on track for $2.00 degrees of warming. this is our collected moment in history. this is our chance to forge a cleaner, healthier, more process world. and this is all time to deliver on the high ambition set by our leaders. at the start of the summit,
3:09 am
we must rise to the occasion. we will continue to champion why fi 5, which is our whole listen to north star. hospital subsidies must end. we must double adaptation finance from current level. often damage is to central settle for workshops. we must strengthen action on lockheed amity and we need an article 6 resolution that result in real reduction. the 0 sum offsetting era must end. with a minimum, we need to walk away if a minimum of the challenge now is for those of us who are progressive to follow along, we need to hold the loans, all fucked, children, grandchildren. this is critical. well, nick log is following the negotiations in glasgow behind the scenes. i lots of
3:10 am
negotiations on going we heard from the called president alex sha mother and he's told us recently that said there are intensive consultations going on right now. and only through the night with the various negotiating blocks to try and find some common ground on the next iteration of the tax. and we're expecting that that's a 3rd one. we'll get that tomorrow at 8 o'clock in the morning. and after that, they'll be a meeting of all the countries involved. they'll talk about every bit, they'll argue about it for a bit, then they'll go back to the respective negotiating blocks. and then in the afternoon, alec sharma says there will be a mass plenary where all the countries will come together. and he says at that point he's hoping to get some sort of resolution of glasgow. pat, if you like it, it will be a miracle. if that does happen. i suspected leone a bit longer, possibly into the night, possibly into sunday at it's a very complex set of negotiations. you can have a lot of situations where negotiating teams will be calling that capitals on particular negotiating issues, especially when it comes to issues like coal and so forth. phasing out coal big
3:11 am
part of it, it's made it into the text is been watered down since the 1st draft and we'll see if it survives the night to night into the 3rd draft to morrow emissions. another big fact to this move to get countries to provide new commitments for next year. and then there's that big issue possibly the deal breaker of climate finance. not just the $100000000000.00 a year that was promised way back in 2009 and now will be delayed until 2023. but also that issue that we're hearing to say the while ago about loss and damage, whereby money is given to developing countries who are facing the worst effects of climate change. and for them, for the g $77.00, group of developing nations, that is a red line. if the rich countries don'ts out, the anti provide money that they need, then this whole deal is off. tassel will weapons and us diplomatic interests in afghanistan di hall will assume the role of protecting power to facilitate formal
3:12 am
communication between washington and cobble the u. s. doesn't recognize the taliban government in afghanistan. rosalind jordan has more when the afghan government fell to the taliban in august, the us relied on its military and on cutter to evacuate, americans and afghans at risk. nearly 3 months later, washington and doha, are formalizing a collaboration born out of crisis cutter will establish a u. s. intersection, within its embassy in afghanistan, to provide certain costs for services, and monitor the condition, security of u. s. diplomatic facilities in afghanistan. the 2nd agreement formalize is our partnership with cutter to facilitate the travel of afghans with us special immigrant pieces. the last of the u. s. embassy officials left cobble on august 31st. so it's been very difficult for the state department to get passports and visas to us and afghan citizens. now,
3:13 am
cutlery officials and cobble will fill that void more important. they'll act as a go between for the taliban and the biden administration. the cutter re foreign minister says the agreement will help advance another u. s. cutter priority supporting the afghan people, especially when it comes to human rights. we believe engaging with body bonds since they are on power right now is very important for us to ensure that or our facilitation for humanitarian assistance is moving small to be and also encouraging them and urging them all the time to a stand up to their commitments and their pledges for the international community. the agreement also shows just how far relations between the u. s. and cutter have come, despite occasional differences. for nearly 50 years of diplomatic ties. the tropic ministration backed the g. c. c. blockade against doha,
3:14 am
imposed in june 2017. a diplomatic route, only resolved in january. and analysts say cutter's new role representing the interests of the world's most powerful country. and a contentious region represents a payoff of years of diplomatic ambition. cutter has been in the game so to speak for quite some time when it comes to the situation with afghan, a standing rest relations with our on. so i actually think that it's a very logical choice, and it makes good sense from us and don't us perspective the deal between the u. s . and cutter is limited and scope. it doesn't mean that they agree on how to engage the tall, a bond as a political entity. and only experience will show whether having a proxy represent the u. s. t as interests and cobble will actually satisfy it's long term national security goals. rosalyn jordan, l g 0, the state department still had on al jazeera, the white house confirms a highly anticipated virtual meeting with team president, j bought and,
