2:06 am
remained defiant. i want you guys to stay focused on matters. remember not noise, this is all noise. this is all about january the storming of us capital in attempt to stop joe biden from becoming president on his radio show the day before. bannon had this warning. all hell is going to break loose tomorrow. so now the congressional committee investigating the insurrection wants to know what he knew and what he may have done in the lead. up to that day, he ignored their subpoena for his testimony and his records claiming executive privilege which legal experts say is unlikely to stand up. the united states supreme court in 234 years is never sustained, an executive privilege. with regard to communications from someone who was a private citizen, not an officer, even with regard to officials who serve in the white house. the committee is hoping these charges will make other trump allies think twice before ignoring their
2:07 am
request. as for ben and leaving court avow to fight, i'm never going to back down late. they took on the wrong guy this time and of course, can't make bad and testify. they can make him pay a price for not doing so, potentially sending him to prison for up to a year. petticoat hain, al jazeera washington or you as president joe biden has signed his one that trillion dollar infrastructure bill into law. it is the country's biggest infrastructure investment in more than half a century and is seen by many as a big victory biden's domestic agenda. he says it will create more jobs, as money is invested in roads, bridges, transport and broadband upgrades to bill. i'll back to sign a lot as proof that despite the cynics, democrats, republicans, and come together and deliver results, we can do this. we can deliver real results for real people. we see in ways
2:08 am
that really matter. each and every day to each person out there. and we're taking a monumental step forward, the bill back better as a nation. a president biden now shifts his attention to china in the next hour. he will hold a virtual meeting with president she jin thing. and i comes at a time of increasing tensions between the 2 global powers. taiwan and human rights issues in hong kong are at the heart of the current friction between the was 2 largest economies. let's get more from our white house correspondent, kimberly how kit. so kimberly much anticipated this so many things that these 2 countries need to discuss. whether you begin i may have an economic over tone in the u. s. president feels he's going and strong. you saw there, he just signed into law that major legislative achievement. that $1.00 trillion
2:09 am
dollar infrastructure package, this will create jobs, and also he believes allow the united states to compete. but the issue of competition with the other major economy and the globe. china is really what this you, as president would like to talk about with president. she, a particularly with united states is repeatedly accused china of disrupting the global norms and terms of trading practices. he wants to see that there's competition, but that, that this is fair competition. so we expect that this is something that will be brought up as well as some of the other key issues like human rights, as well as crackdowns, of pro democracy supporters and other issues as well. even areas of commonality, lake addressing, cult climate change, which they feel they might be able to work together on. this is the 1st time the 2 leaders will meet face to face. i'll be at not person. this is going to be a virtual summit. they have had 2 phone calls before,
2:10 am
but what we know about this is that this is really going to try and set the terms of the relationship moving forward. you'll remember that under the predecessor donald trump, there was quite a toxic relationship in terms of the rhetoric and some of the tit for tat tariffs that were exchanged. so according to a senior administration official, this is going to be about really avoiding miscalculations, misunderstandings, and setting some common sense guard rails, if you will. what they're trying to do is really set the path moving forward so that there isn't lasting damage to the sort of geopolitical relationship and ramifications. given the fact that there have been heightened tensions for quite some time. now. kimberly, thank you. kimberly, how can life or sit there in washington outside the what house? well, it turned out to cynthia watson, who is in the asia pacific analyst, she joins us live now via zoom from washington. thanks very much for being with us . so let me ask you, 1st of all, what do you,
2:11 am
what do you think this particular virtual summit is, is going to achieve? well, i think that the point that your correspondence made of trying to establish some basic parameters is important. but i would also say that i'm afraid the taiwan issue is really going to be hovering in the background. there is concern by the chinese that there are increasing signs that support towards the government and tie bay might lead to actions that beijing could not control. washington, on the other hand, is very concerned because paging increasingly seems to intervening in the taiwan air space and leading to more and more of a tense situation. so i think ty one's going to be
2:12 am
a subtext in all of this. how would you, i mean, historically speaking, how would you assess the current state of relations between the united states and china? it's pretty bad. this is, i think, the worst that it has been in the modern era which i gave back to richard nixon's trip, which will be 50 years. and that your the tension is supplemented by tremendous doubts on the part of the population in both countries about what the other side seeks to achieve in the bilateral relationship and around the world. people and trying to think that the united states is trying to keep trying out of a dominant appropriate role in the world. the united states is concerned about a modernizing china, particularly militarily and economically. that is, says your correspondence said one of great competition with the united states. so i
2:13 am
think it's a very wrong period for the bilateral relationship. what does president biden bring to this relationship? because he is some someone who, as prided himself on his personal relationships with, with certain leaders what, what, what, what can he bring to this, that perhaps donald trump didn't well, he brings a lot more experience in engaging with foreign leaders. president biden has in fact been involved in foreign affairs for decades. president trump was not in terms of representing a nation. president biden has met with us. she's been paying several times in the past as well as several other chinese leaders. so i think he brings some confidence into this meeting, but i think that the tension that exists and is growing over the question
2:14 am
of what we see changing in the western pacific really is a leading trend that those in the united states and then our ally and partner nations are increasingly seeing as a dangerous sign about she's in pings, aspirations in this region. good to talk to cynthia watson, johnny stare from washington. appreciate your perspective. i still had on edge, is it giving a voice to the voice list? it's been 15 years since the launch of this channel. i just dealing with
2:15 am
winterstein knocked on the door of the us, been letty naturally, but only in a limited area. round great lakes, typically that's a hump of warm air. this is the cold that went into it. it gave snow in, for example, indiana. it's not unusual just the 1st significant snow. and in fact is going to be a waving system. the warming is going back up again during tuesday before it's swept back in. behind this cold front, as it comes out of the mountains, the head of it all is a swirling storm of snow in the middle of calendar. so temperatures will drop to answer kansas and missouri. but ahead of it all, a bit, a bit of rain on its way through to the coldest. sitting back here by tommy. get to so stay. that's how far it's got. 60 degrees is the high in dallas. we're still in single figures in minneapolis, plenty of snow lake fixed by a particular on the great lakes with rain, showers, the east that or rain for the whole day. and the pick a cbl will see some more rain come down to california, not a lot, but some st. in central america,
2:16 am
the focus of rain now and the next 2 days will be belize, nicaragua, and honduras and possibly further south. the been a few showers in cuba and the bahamas are they have not gone away. but those heavy, as they were awe from the al jazeera london broke, are fantastic to people in conversation. we refer to ratio black where he people and we had to really find our way with no hope and no limitation. the world is a much more place we feel better to get away with the regional boundaries, film direct, thank you. in to tell me thing a sound like that. again, you think about racism making certainly have is making often visible. you debbie, unfit on out to the air. oh,
2:17 am
a again, you're watching. i just did a reminder of our top stories this out. the european union is stepping up at sanctions on valerie. as my crisis there was in recent days, thousands of my going to the mass on the border with poland. for me you as president donald trump's long time ally, steve baton has surrendered to federal authorities. he's facing contempt charges for refusing to cooperate with the congressional investigation. january 6 attack on the captain, president joe biden has signed his one trillion dollar infrastructure building to law. the promise, more jobs, as money is invested in roads, bridges, climate resilience, and broad band upgrades. an american journalist,
2:18 am
imprisoned in me and ma for almost 6 months has been freed. just days after military court sentenced him to 11 years in prison. danny fenster arrived in cotton on monday evening. the federal anemic spoke to him on the ta mike, just off to his plane, touched down. danny fencer cast a frail figure as he stepped off the plane that carried him out of me and mark and home to freedom. the 37 year old american journalist spoke to reporters briefly before stepping into an ambulance for a medical check. he had spent almost 6 months in prison filling all right, physically, um it's just a the same a privations and things that come with any form of incarceration. you just go a little crazy. the longer it drags on, the more were you are that is just never gonna end. so that was, that was the biggest concern to staying sane through that you miss treated?
2:19 am
oh is i was arrested and held in captivity for no reason. so i suppose so. but i physically am, i was healthy, i wasn't starved or beaten. fenster was arrested in may as he tried to return home to the united states to visit his family. he was the former editor of an independent online magazine in me in march after the military coup in february. he was among dozens of journalists, arrested, fencer was facing the prospect of 11 years in prison after a military court sentenced him last week. the former u. s. energy secretary and un ambassador bill richardson helped broker his release as or where richardson has a history of freeing hostages and prisoners. i think what made the difference was my effort to work with the government on miramar,
2:20 am
on humanitarian assistance on vaccines. and that made the difference. the military did not provide any details on why fencer was ultimately freed. the un says there are 47 journalists behind bars in me and mar. 20 of them are facing charges directly tied to their work. fenster says the focus should remain on their plight and he'll help fight for their release. natasha name l de zira doha. a lawyers in the u. s. are making their closing arguments in the trial of american teenage a call written house. the 18 year old is charles with murdering 2 men and wounding a 3rd after he opened fire with a semi automatic rifle during black lives matter protests in kenosha, wisconsin. john henderson joins us live from there right now. so john, this was
2:21 am
a politically and racially charged case. one of the most was trials in the us right now. as it's wrapping up today. what are you hearing? your voice is case. that is, it's separated the nation. people see in it what they want to see, and that's largely because there's not a disagreement about the basic fact as a matter of what you think about those facts, pretty much everybody agrees. in this case that coll rittenhouse was a 17 year old kid who took an a r 15 assault rifle and came to a black lives matter approach. and said he was there to be a medic and to protect stores as a kind of counter pro chester. and in the end of the night, he ended up having a confrontation with a group of people. there was a man who was chasing him. he turned around and shot that man 4 times. and that's where the dispute begins, because it's really a matter of whether he was justified,
2:22 am
shot the 2 people dead and then injured a 3rd in the prosecutors suggest, argued moments ago in their final closing arguments. that when that 1st person was chasing kyle written house, he was armed and written house had the option of trying to fight him back physically with his hands. your 1st option should not be to use deadly force. and the prosecution is argued that after that, there was another protest. her who came up watched rittenhouse with a skateboard, and a 3rd one approached him with a gun in hand. he was a medic. but the prosecution's argument is that after the point where that this person was shot, it was the crowd that was trying to defend themselves by taking written house down and disarming him. the defense says he had the right to shoot each of those people, but he faces some very serious charges. and that jury of 12 people is going to have to decide whether this guy is a murderer or whether he's a provocative tour. whether he's
2:23 am
a man who is simply defending himself and the charges that the dd actually has to consider are complex and they've changed. what are the charges that he faces when they're 5 remaining charges, the least of them right now is reckless endangerment. that's because he was shooting around a crowd of people and thereby the accusation is that he was endangering them. the highest charge is 1st degree homicide murder, but the judge had 2 other charges. one of them was a curfew charge. the other one was a minor in possession of a dangerous weapon, and on that there was some dispute about whether there was a loophole in the law. the judge dropped both of those, but he did allow the prosecutors to add additional secondary charges. so there was a 1st degree murder. there was a 1st degree attempted murder. well if the jury can't decide that he's guilty of that, they are now allowed to decide whether he's guilty of 2nd degree. that is
2:24 am
a lower threshold with a lower penalty. but in any case, he faces penalties that range from 12 and a half years to the rest of his life. all right, john henry live 1st there in kenosha. thanks so much. how to more sudanese protesters have died in hospital after being shot during protests on saturday. the a brings a total number of people killed to 8 more than $200.00. others were wounded when security forces open fire on people in hot tune and on demand. so we're demonstrating against military rule police deny using live ammunition protests have been going on since a military takeover in october. the military says the civilian government will be formed in the coming days out appears planned anti government protest across cuba will not take place for now. authorities clamped down on demonstrators declaring the rallies illegal. some government critics have not been allowed to leave their
