1:08 am
a lot of trucks out there in order to try to help this country recover. and of course, the whole situation generates lots of pension with a big texter, but also on the tweet we're seeing protest happening here almost every day with people struggling to make a living to make it until the end of the month. mostly because of the fire, very high inflation rate. and this, of course, has a huge impact on the president's popularity. and as i was, is a former ecuador in presidential candidate and economist. he explains what latin american needs from its neighbors to stimulate the regions economy. we need a for the us to return the capital that has flown away from countries in latin america. and we need the u. s. to respect to the international treaties so that they can exchange information on capital fly that has left latin american africa to the us. and that will in some manner decrease the capital flight. and the prime
1:09 am
reason, the main reason why domestic central banks, latin america having to raise rates. but also we need to create a regional financial architecture that is long due for latin america. we need to continue the project to the bank of the south and new central bank of the south with the soon as the currency of the re in south america. and a lot of what happens in the region will depend on their political results in brazil and the next few days. but definitely we need more structural measures that create a regional financial architecture that can help the region protect itself from the dollar cycle. the dollar shocks and the vulnerabilities in the global economic system. oh, yes. house select committee investigating last year storming of capitol hill is voted to subpoena for me. yes, president donald trump,
1:10 am
to testify the raw on january 6th force members of congress to evacuate and temporarily stop them from confirming president jo biden's victory. if tom does not comply with any subpoena, he could face imprisonment. on thursday the panel showed previously unseen video of congressional leaders phoning officials for help during the attack. statements from 2 members of the committee described from oppressed, the former president as substantially involved in the events, and that he acted in a premeditated way. we conducted more than a 1000 interviews and depositions. we received and reviewed hundreds of thousands of pages of document. thank to the towel, this work of our members and investigators. we've left, we have left, no doubt known that down trump lay in an effort to up an american democracy that directly resulted in a balance of january 6. how did your customer join july from capitol hill,
1:11 am
10 small, but the subpoena? what will was he trump testify? lauren, that is the big question. we know that this vote was unanimous to compel the testimony of former president trump. and it was the surprising conclusion to this string of public hearings that have built up in anti over the course of this year. but will trump actually come to the capitol hill and give his testimony well, he avoided doing so during his 2 impeachment trials. and he still has the opportunity to appeal the subpoena, which could be a long, protracted legal battle. so long story short most are looking at this as a way to try to compel him to testify, but that he'll be able to dodge, namely because the time that the clock is also on trump side, in just a few weeks time, american voters will be asked to vote for which party will again, control congress. and if democrats lose control of the house, which is a possible scenario,
1:12 am
and this toss up election than republicans will inherit this investigation. and likely the 1st thing they'll do is shut it down. now trump, on truth social, his online platform didn't directly say whether he would comply with this subpoena, but he did say, why didn't the committee ever ask him to testify before? and he ridiculed it. saying that this was a hoax. again, that this was, this committee was a bust. now as far as what purpose then does is practically serve the american people. well, the democrats to lead this committee and the few republicans were on it as well. say that this will help we focus americans on what they still see as a dramatic episode, and it is a danger to american democracy that still has yet to be held accountable. and they say trump was at the center of this, that he was part of this premeditated plan to clean to power. even knowing that he had lost the 2020 presidential election. and now the task they happy for them is to
