2:03 pm
a list, obviously in the cabinet. the new cabinets on in is more or less the very same cabinet as the old one. even the defense secretary of very staunch supporter of the former president, go to our b roger boxer. ah, one of the leading commanders during the war. a major general retired major to come again to ratner has been re appointed as defense secretary, which all goes to show that there might be a new name and a new person in the top office. but it very much seems to be that those who have been appointed are all raj fox loyalists. so that's what it seems like. so the reaction, i mean if i can just show you here, people are still protesting. we haven't seen a violent pushback quite frankly. but the anger, the frustration is still there, but just step out of view to let you see behind me there is this silent demonstration or sat to grow her by protesters are sitting right opposite of the barricade. now for them. or what they have said is the crack down that was launched
2:04 pm
in the early hours of this morning at 1 o'clock in the morning by hundreds of military and special task force. police commanders was completely unwarranted against peaceful protest. ers, and as you can see, the, the line here of the barricade and just beyond it, i mean right now within what we can see, the 1st line is police are equipped with their gas masks. the 2nd line is special police commanders, again, are all armed to the t obviously, and the line behind that is our members of the army are all again, are ready with riot gear and things like that. so there's a lot of anger about the we that drunk become missing him, his government have launched this crack down. so it is a new cabinet, old faces as we are saying. what will the protesters though sitting behind you do next, and how much pressure are they putting on the cabinet and the prime minister if any
2:05 pm
at all it's obviously just a black an of a little while yet. since we had that swearing in, but the protest as that massive movement of public anger that we saw in the lead into this that ultimately blew up on the 9th of july, where people literally overran the president's office, of forcing him to flee, be evacuated to see if safety and then literally freed the country in a military plan because he couldn't get the get out any other way. that was the level of anger that the people had. and the reason for that was what they had done to this country. now the fact that there is a new cabinet, you have a president, ronald vicar, missing her a yesterday saying publicly that he's not a friend of the roger boxes that he's a friend of the people and that he will work for the people. ah, strangely, the people don't think so. i mean, it's the same people that he says he's the great friend of that voted him out because they had no confidence. enron, nova grimacing her. and that hasn't changed. and it's just got all the worse.
2:06 pm
because he seems to be saying one thing and his actions demonstrate completely the dire opposite of that. because a way this cracked down was launched when he was a mid prime minister by go to a barrage boxer, he began to make sort of conciliatory gestures like saying, he respected the protest as right to descend, to speak up. or, you know, essentially saying that he would have their voice represented in sort of negotiations with the government. all of these things have turned out just to be rhetoric when you see that massive of a sort of show of force that we saw yesterday. obviously, the, the attorney general, the attorney general, ah, you know, also being consulted about what and where the protested can be. but at the end of the day, this was a show of force to intimidate and to dissuade protested from taking a stand or a thank you so much. we're now fernandez reporting from colombo. are you

2:08 pm
a half hours. the cool logs blank for that time and the official white house photographer was prevented from entry. but fox news was displaying the unfolding chaos. a few kilometers away, witnesses, se trump made no effort to intervene during that time, but was well aware of what was unfolding. are you aware of any phone call by the president of the united states to the secretary of defense that day? where are you aware of any phone call by the president united states to the attorney general of the united states that day? no. be aware of any phone call by the president of the united states, the secretary of homeland security that day. i'm not aware of that. those in the white house growing more alarmed, desperate to get the president to do something. so with trump, children, his closest allies, the republican leadership in congress, even fox news hosts, but to no avail. on capitol hill, members of the vice president security detail say they were terrified. the members of the b p. detail at this time,
2:09 pm

2:10 pm
oath of office by not acting on january the 6th, but it just failed to act. he chose not to act. the committee will hold more hearings in september to make the argument a trump isn't fit to ever hold office again. she advertise the al jazeera washington 1st find the former us associate deputy attorney general and the constitutional lawyer. the says former vice president mike pence needs to appear before the committee to explain donald trump's directions on january, the 6th. even the statement that a trump issued that were ambiguous, in the sense that on one hand he says you should be peaceful, but we love you and your patriot is that way he never ever consider doing was saying president biden won the election according to our processes never, he's won, there'll be a peaceful transition. and unfortunately, you know, you have violated the law and our point is special task force that the justice
