8:07 am
a u. s. allies received billions annually and military funding to treat sharina funeral and the investigation into her death, an american citizen. with such disrespect, when american journalists, i've given you a green nobody way for investigation this in their house is a russian. why is trying to get away with this? why not put in put an independent wiring opinions not leave the history cable in an investigation itself. we understand that there are investigations by both sides. we've offered our assistance to the israelis to the palestinians, and we are prepared to provide that. should they want it still? when asked if president biden had even contact as sharina family, or if he would use his leverage with the israelis to bring sharina killers to account. this was the answer that the president, any plan to speak with you really government directly from the ongoing investigation. i don't have any cause to predict at this point. the president
