2:01 am
a reason to search his florida home a hello, i'm darn jordan. this is al jazeera la you from dough are also coming up on a strike, killed 4 people in tig ry. ethiopia. government denies civilians were among the dead. a disaster of epic proportions in pakistan. millions of people are homeless. as rain continues to pound the country. and the future of the world's oceans hangs in the balance. governments struggle to finalize a crucial global treaty. ah, the u. s. justice department has released a heavily redacted version of the document that helped secure permission to search donald trump's home officials and to the former president florida state. on the 8th
2:02 am
of august, the search was part of a probe into whether he illegally removed documents from the white house. alan fisher has more it was a remarkable moment and f b. i read on the form of a former u. s. president. donald trump revealed the search at his motto: lago property earlier this month on social media. it provoked outrage among supporters now the department of justice has released the affidavit, used to secure a search warrant, signed off by a judge. trump and his team had already handed over 15 boxes of documents he took with them. when he left the white house. they should have gone to the national archives. going through the boxes, investigators found highly sensitive documents. in the 30 page affidavit which is highly censored, the f b, i laid out its case for a further search, claiming they believed there were more sensitive documents, amarrow lago, which could injure the u. s. if they fell into the wrong hands, that despite assurances from trumps legal team, all documents had been handed over. that these sensitive documents were being and
2:03 am
properly handled and that the material possessed could mean 3 possible crimes were being committed. reacting on his trip, social channel, donald trump said affidavit, heavily redacted. nothing mentioned on nuclear. a total public relations subterfuge by the f b i n d o j or, or close working relationship regarding document turnover. we gave them much in the white house briefing room. there was a determination to keep the cotton president out of the political fight. we feel that it is not appropriate for us to comment on this. this is an independent investigation that the department of justice is leading. that's something that the president finds is an important thing to do for the department of justice to have that independent. we're just not gonna comment. but he did just a few minutes later, dismissing the former president's claim, he declassified all the documents. why this one ought declassified everything in
2:04 am
the world? i'm credit i'm not going to comment because i don't know the detail at all. i want to know like why? because it's unusual for such an affidavit to be released before charges a lead. if charges are to follow, that will be discussion at the highest levels of the department of justice in the days to come on fisher algebra, washington. let's bring in bruce fine. he's a former us associate deputy attorney general and joint us live from washington dc . bruce good to happy, but with our select the justice department as now released this heavily redacted version of the affidavit used to justify the search. bruce, what do you make of it? now, cirrus is this f b i investigation a couple of opening comments. one, remember the f b i is headed by a trump, appointee. trump, appointee who is approved by every single republican in the senate. trump a point to is not a politician. the 2nd thing i want to observe is that there wasn't
2:05 am
a rate if you read the a warrant and the, the affidavit, the f b. i was specifically limited to the places they could search and the items they could search for a by an article 3 judge the f b i didn't get to investigate on its own without the article 3 judges approval. they couldn't do anything. so the idea that this is somehow unilateral gambit of the justice department is simply wrong. the 2nd observation is there is available to mr. trump and his attorneys haven't done so far to seek return of all the documents they believe were improperly. c is called rule 41 g of the federal rules of criminal procedure. they haven't made any motion to retrieve any of the documents that they ever write to seek. if they believe anything was irregular about the search. now with regard to the most recent 30 age, mostly redacted document, i don't think it leads us to conclude much more than what we already knew. ok, namely the nature of the crimes under investigation. the espionage act, namely,
2:06 am
distributing or giving a national defense information to persons, unauthorized, possibly destroying presidential records, which is a crime. i serve 15 years in the government when i left all of my handy work was the governments. i didn't take a scrap of paper on the presidential records act, which i helped draft makes it clear. presidential records prepared in the course of president to do these belong to the american people and they don't belong. okay, president himself. okay, let me jump in, let me just jump in there because i pushed for time. i mean, this isn't just about who gets to keep some presidential documents and souvenir this. this really concerns the broader security of closely guarded u. s. government secrets, but many people bruce are asking what was from doing with these documents at his personal house. anyway, i'm an and was the ever a danger they could have been passed to foreign agents? well, the answer is, course. yes, you're right. why did he decamp with all of these? you can compare what he did when he packed up his boxes with mr. pence,
2:07 am
his vice president, who was very, very scrupulous about making certain anything that was classified or arguably stayed with the national archives and wasn't taken away. and so aft asked, this seems highly reckless. and we've come to know now that mr. trump actually sent a message to kim jong over of north korea in fedex. you know, not in diplomatic out. so he clearly was reckless in his tire presidency. we know that he was disclosing insensitive information with the japanese prime minister. he made a comment to the russian officials about the f b i that were disco that were damaging the united states. and so i agree with you. this is far beyond just harmless. well, i took a president document about a napkin that was happened to be an oval office. these are very, very serious pieces of information and that could be leading to criminal charges. apartment of justice does not get mr. trump over drivel. yeah, i'm bruce. i'm in trump has had a plethora of of legal trouble since he left the white house. presumably this f
2:08 am
b i investigation puts him in serious legal jeopardy. just briefly. yes, i believe the reason one of the reasons why is because the violations don't have the political dynamism, if you will, about january 6th in the voting. then nothing to do with the fraudulent voting, counting voting machines, mail and balance or anything as simple national, secured. and it says own f b i, director who's heading the investigation and article 3 judges who are finding probable cause. it's pretty hard to make out in case that this is a which on, when it has these kind of elements to it that the entire united states i spoke endangered by this kind of recklessness. and i do believe that he definitely is in criminal jeopardy. just a, just a final brief thought for me, bruce, i'm in, comes to fan, says that he had executive privilege. he maintained that he'd already order the documents to be declassified. where does the investigation go from here? and what sort of political fallout is they likely to be then just briefly? number one, there is no executive privilege. mr. nixon found that out very fast. he tried to
2:09 am
claim privilege in the oval office when he's discussing obstruction of justice, destruction of documents. you can, and you can invoke privilege to conceal crime. the 2nd thing is, it doesn't matter. under the espionage act, whether information was classified or not. if it's national defense information, it goes to an unauthorized person. it's criminal, even if it was declassified. so that's not going to rescue trump in this situation . respond always good to get your thoughts on your analysis. bruce, thank you. thank you to. if you're up here now, we're an air strike us kill at least 4 people, including 2 children. it happened in mikayla in the northern region of to grey. the cities been at the center of a conflict that began more than 2 years ago. the latest attack has increased fears, but an already di, humanitarian crisis may get worse. cut philip has held a young, has more. an air strike in the capital of ethiopia as t gra region could signal a new phase of renewed fighting local media. say the central government is
2:10 am
responsible for the attack in an area control by rebels from the to graham people's liberation front or t p l f. as to dish desiree sonya belinda, i think the s drive kid around noon a neighbourhood is a residential area. saw only civilians live here. so the northern lovey, the fighting which began earlier this week marks the end of a ceasefire. there was agreed to and march it also derails efforts to negotiate a p still between prime minister abi augments government and t p l. a. fighters. it's important at to have some insight about why this war resumed right now. to guy was under ship d. c h, i receiving no fuel, no electricity, no communication, no banking to guy forces are been weakest point right now. the fighting has made an already dire humanitarian crisis. worse. millions of people have been displaced
2:11 am
with more than 3000 reportedly fleeing from the region every day. the un and other agencies have been able to deliver some made in the past few months. earlier this week, the head of the world food program accused tp ellen fighters of stealing food and more than 500000 leaders of fuel, humanitarian aid men for civilians never reach its target. all the parties need to do whatever they can to protect or to protect civilians, and also very poorly a thing to insure the unimpeded passage of humanitarian of goods. the latest round of violence is raising concerns. you could put even more people at risk in te grey and the surrounding m hara and our far regions. patsy. a little miss of the young al jazeera pakistan has declared a national emergency after months of record monsoon reigns large parts of the country have been devastated. and what the governments described as
2:12 am
a humanitarian disaster of epic proportions. more than 900 people had been killed since june. most of them in baluchistan and eastern punjab provinces. millions of families of lost their homes, crops, and livestock. but villages are submerged in southwestern baluchistan and eastern punjab provinces. pakistan's climate change minister says baluchistan has received nearly 500 per cent more than the average rainfall in the month of august. in recent days, the southern sin province has also been hit by flood waters. it's registered more than 780 percent more rain and it usually gets at this time of year. same as robbie has been to some of the affected areas. his, his report from so on city in sin, promise. driving into interior stand villages, communities all across this province remain almost completely water logged as we were driving up, people had blocked the roads with rocks. these were just regular folks. poverty stricken really struggling, just asking for any sort of help asking for any sort of money. this is a very,
2:13 am
very, a struggling part of the country. and as you can see, people live here and very basic conditions. most of these houses are all muddy and brick dwellings for basic foundation. and so when the water comes rushing through and when these areas become so water log, you don't even need very strong currents for the water to slowly eat away at the foundations of these buildings. that are eventually knocked over just dissolving in a way into the water that is still here and, and more is coming. this struggle here is very, very acute in this still the worst effected place in terms of the humanitarian need in terms of damage to infrastructure. people need shelter, the government has asked for 1000000 tense, and that's just the initial ask to house people in the interim period before a permanent solution to this crisis can be found which may not be forthcoming before things get worse. we've seen images from the north of the country and swap. the valley of more strong currents coming down from rains and glacial melts. more strong currents washing away buildings tearing through hillsides,
2:14 am
tearing through villages up there. and all that water is headed down to the south of the country and it's headed this way so there may be more struggle ahead for communities living here in san then in religious non profits in the south parking lot. still to come here on al jazeera, it's all about the money. the head of america central bank was a high fuel and food prices aren't going away anytime soon. plus the singing through the war ukrainian celebrate the national identity in the russian speaking city about desa more in that state. ah, ah. with you're locked into your weather story for the americas. heather, great to see you. so how we get
2:15 am
a vigorous system around the river plate region storms and those winds picking up. but those winds are also pumping up that temperature and is sociology $236.00. but it all comes crashing down on sunday big changes much lower temperatures. and for the top end of south america, we've got her brain in storms in the amazon basin around the now is east of the pe ruby and andes, pushing in to bolivia, columbia, and venezuela. our usual problem spots here. showers and storms are meandering around the caribbean, so downpours seem likely in his van eula and right across cuba as, while in still the threat of flooding across the u. s. gulf states, here's southern sections pushing into this se also the risk of seen some flooding caused by monsoon downpours through the 4 corners states. here, temperatures have come down a bit in los angeles at 27 degrees and some showers dancing in to canadas vancouver . so any of that hayes in wild fire smoke from near by wild fires will be damping down enough to these we go. it's been an unsettled pitcher. still some cloud cover
2:16 am
here and little pockets of rain, but looking like a night. stay in new york with a high of 28 degrees on saturday and joy. that sure weather update. i'll catch you later. bye for now. ah. in the year, 1271, a young battalion. let's sit down with carrying letters from the po for the great coup. luca, marco polo travelled, liters following dangerous vote from the holy land and beyond. today, jason, the shadow professor shout has travelled china to venice with searching questions of how the relationship between east and west is change. marco polo on al jazeera lou.
2:17 am
ah, welcome back. a good reminder. the top stories here at this hour. the u. s. justice department has released a heavily redacted version of the document, but help secure permission to search donald trump's home. it says top secret records were not safeguarded at the estate which was searched on august the 8th. and as far as the regional capital of tig rye, in the north of ethiopia, there are reports, it struck a children's playground. 4 people were killed, local meetings, say the national government is responsible for the attack on pakistan has declared a national emergency after months of record monsoon range, large part of the country have been devastated. and what the government is described as a humanitarian disaster of epic proportions. stop markets have fallen shop in the u . s. after the head of the federal reserve said, the central bank would continue to act forcefully to battle inflation. jerome power
2:18 am
predicted some pain ahead in his remarks at the jackson, the whole banking conference in wyoming. he promised the federal reserve would use the tools at its disposal and that high interest rates would continue for some time . the dow jones and s and p $500.00 indices both fell more than 3 percent off to his comments. will my kind of joins us live now from washington dc mike. so every year we see the biggest names in the economic and financial will come together. jackson hole. what came out of the meeting this year, that while it's still on the way it continues to morrow. but as you say, it does include the bankers from throughout the world, from europe, from asia, and of course, from within the united states as well. it's part to retreat its part policy conference. are the bankers there discuss matters of the day of particular focus this year? is the concept of emerging from the pandemic. there are several policy papers that will be presented by various people in terms of how economies can react to the
2:19 am
emergence from the pandemic. how they should be reacting, what can be done to make this emergence easier. and of course, the major topic, a 3rd discussion is inflation such as united states, but around the world, inflation is climbing partially as a result of energy shortages because of the war in ukraine. but generally, this is a problem common to all of those attending this conference, which incidentally, it's the 1st time in 2 years that it's being held in person since 2019 and the pen to make it was held virtually. but now for the 1st time, all the participants come together in person for these 48 hours of discussion at mike durham, powell, the head of the federal reserve, talked about us interest rates, remaining high for some time to come. what does all this mean than for ordinary americans? well, his speech was watched very carefully. he was the 1st m a conference. and for the
2:20 am
1st time his speech was broadcast, live from the hall at the lodge where the meeting is traditionally held. now some had been hoping that he may indicate the fed backing off its interest rates increases. bearing in mind that at it's one of 4 meetings, the rate has increased by some 2 percent. but apollo did not give any leeway on this at all. he made very clear his belief that it was going to be necessary for the fed to continue introducing rate increases, perhaps as much as 4 percent by the end of the year or early next year. this of course, sent a signal to the market which had been hoping for something else, particularly as the inflation rate dropped off a fraction last month. many hoping that this would signal a turn around in the countries inflation rates that are made very clear that one month is meaningless. a saying that we would need to see at least 6 months of
2:21 am
reducing inflation before the fed would start backing off raising interest rates. he also pointed to the fact that employment is at a 50 year high, but this creates its own problems. more people at work more money entering the market, the greater means for inflation. so it's a real balancing act that he's walking. but certainly it was a very hawkish attitude that caused great concern as we saw in wall street with all the full, a major benchmarks dropping by some 3 percent. right. so my kind of life was there in washington. mike, thank you. now india has restricted the export of wheat flour in a bid to slow the rising cost of food. the government banned the export a week itself after a heat wave restricted out. but earlier this year now it's stepping in for a 2nd time. but natal report from new delhi, there have been growing concerns about food inflation. now the government has restricted export of wheat flour. it says this will address price rise and insure
2:22 am
food security. there has been an increase in demand internationally, india as exports a wheat flour have gone up 4 times since last. still russia and ukraine are the was largest exporters of wheat. the war there has cut off supply and raise prices internationally. obviously on the regular redeems lakeview. oh, good. so late use for that, a little demon i'd homes are busy. those are increasing day by day of busy. it won't be a good for them because family business good over me, loss you. it's a loss for our business. the purchasing part of a customer has gone down the spending list to be it's not like incomes have visit. so business has suffered with me and it's been like this since the pandemic started alone. a good. the government is also concerned about its own stocks. millions of people in india get food like drains and law to welfare schemes. earlier the government had restricted export of sugar and wheat. now food inflation has ease
2:23 am
slightly but still remains very high. millions of people in india are struggling to afford basic necessities for us. pharmaceutical company, madonna, assuming it's rivals pfizer, and by on tech, over the technology behind its cobit 19 vaccine. both jobs use the m r and a platform which madonna claims that develop years before the pandemic. madonna has accused pfizer and by and take the legally copying it's invention and using them without permission. pfizer says it's surprised by the law suits which are fall in the u. s. and germany and will vigorously defend its technology from berlin. his dominant came the essence of this law suit revolves around 2 specific allegations by materna that pfizer and biotech working together have appropriated or taken without asking 2 specific branches of research. the 1st being in the view of mariner that although pfizer and bon tech had worked on 4 separate m r n a chemical combinations, they ended up going with exactly the same one that madonna alleges it already had
2:24 am
patient for several years before the corona virus outbreak. we now know took effect the 2nd revolves around an assertion from materna that they believe madonna, that they believe that pfizer and by on tech, have adapted technology that were down and say they elaborated on when the merce problem emerged in the middle east. several years ago now, it is worth saying that pfizer and barn tech have said they will always contest these sorts of peyton lawsuits. but one thing to bring into perspective about the uptake of mo, jonah and the uptake of pfizer and by on tech vaccines here in germany, at least in the course of this calendar year, pfizer biotech vaccines more than 4 times as many of their shots have been injected into people as have materna. materna says this lawsuit is all about protecting its intellectual copyright. now it's taken years of talks about the world. governments
2:25 am
could soon agree a global ocean treaty to protect marine life the u n's. now holding a conference on the treaty, it would be a legally binding document and would turn 30 percent of the world's oceans into conservation areas. by 2030 agreement would been over fishing and protected zones negotiations. i've also addressed deep sea mining, which involves extracting minerals like cobalt from ocean beds. and other concern is the growth in shipping, which is increased more than 1600 percent over the last 40 years. and that causes more pollution which threatens bio diversity. stephanie decker reports now on what's at stake oceans cover around 70 percent of our planet. and under the waves, a ballet of marine life, a magical gliding world that works in perfect symbiosis. but the reality is far from perfect. over fishing, deep sea mining and suffocating tons of plastic pollution, but a few of the reasons we are killing this underwater world. we certainly appreciate
2:26 am
that we live on a blue planet. the ocean connects us all. sadly, we have taken the ocean for granted. and the way we face was i would gall a notion emergency. we must turn the tides. but that tide is proving hard to turn, scientists of war and that it is now or never when it comes to changing our ways. in order to prevent our planet from further heating and driving multiple species on land and at sea to extinction. imagine never again seeing scenes like these. the du gong or see cow gathering off the coast of cat are in huge numbers. that many end up dead as a result of getting caught up in fishing nets known as bycatch. one of the main reasons why they are endangered cutters. water is also serve as a stopping point for migratory whale sharks. hosting one of the largest
2:27 am
aggregations in the world. i swam with them for a previous report of mine, had dental giants, or inspiring to watch them feed, feeling like a tiny, insignificant, yet privilege guest in their world. our oceans feed, us, sustain us, give us life. they host such a diversity of perfection and beauty. it shouldn't be hard to understand and to implement the urgent need to protect them. stephanie decker, al jazeera catera, but russia's invasion, a scene arise and patriotism among ukrainians most apparent in cities like odessa or attempts and are being made to play down. its russian influences, the stories about now ripples oh, an opera about ukrainians leaving under oppression. oh, it's also
2:28 am
a love story whose characters are constantly fighting to return to their land. it's being staged in the says opera house. the conductor says the plays now more symbolic than ever. as his country's fighting a russian invasion. nervousness ashes, because we're working in difficult conditions and everything we do is aimed at winning the school. everyone is in that place. my son is on the front line. this was also known as the part of the black sea under the russian empire. around 80 percent of the population speaks russian. and many thought that the meter proteins invasion would be widely welcome here, but that was not the case. many people believe. so if you speak russia, you want to go to russia, you're, you will wait for ashen all me here. know, odessa is mainly russian speaking, but it's your credit l. c, t. and that's supported by
2:29 am
a sense of nationalism on the streets since the war began. ukrainian flag had been proudly displayed, defining an identity that has only become stronger in the past month. the russian invasion has many people here in odessa, rethinking this history. this is the statue of catherine the great, the russian empress. and now there is an online petition to demolish the statue and replace it with something else. dozens of volunteers have come together at this angio to make military camouflage net from textiles and old clothes. it seems that it rushes attacks has given many people here, a common goal, helping defend their country in any way they can versus canal a mirror with or lexicon tad ingle says he supports called to remove all russian symbolism from the city. because it could make, put him believe, or they sat belongs to russia. this, we don't want to see russian empire or sample russian emperors. lodge a russian at sar, rushing presidents,
2:30 am
nobody russian. here. we finished with his empire where not part of his empire any more. for decades and div finally the whole world to realised it. and i think that even put in realized, oh, the operating odessa provides an escape from the reality of the russian invasion. although air raid sirens, remind every one of the threats they face. oh, but it's also a reassurance of ukraine's identity and a fight for freedom that has been re ignited by the war fiddle. so i'll just cedar or lisa ukraine. ah, or target check of the headlines here on al jazeera, the u. s. justice department has released a redacted version of the document that helped secure permission to search. donald trump's home.
