3:00 am
ah ha, from take off until the final with will bring you expensive coverage fill out the world. action for all of the games. the joy and the experts and match analysis for my studios, info and excitement from around the city and across the globe. join us the cast us 2022 on out to 0. ah, a special council his name to oversee the investigation and to form
3:01 am
a u. s. president donald trump's handling of classified documents. ah, hello there. i'm an associate. hey, this is al 0 life and are also coming up. a warning that ukraine's capital faces a complete power shut down as russia keeps up. it's as strikes on energy facilities and poles open in malaysia general election that will decide if a long ruling coalition can make a comeback. brain go run off. and india is fast, privately develop rocket blasts off a giant leap in the countries efforts to develop its space industry. ah, well, we begin in the us where a special council has been appointed to oversee the u. s. justice departments
3:02 am
investigations into former president donald trump. attorney general merit garland named war crimes expert jack smith to the probes into drums handling of classified documents after leaving office. and his attempt to interfere in the 2020 presidential election results and comes 3 days after trump announced that he'll be running again for president in 2024. based on recent developments, including the former president's announcement that he is a candidate for president in the next election. and the sitting president stated intention to be a candidate as well. i have concluded that it is in the public interest to appoint a special council such an employee, an appointment under scores, the department's commitment to both independence and accountability in particularly sensitive matters. it also allows prosecutors and agents to continue their work expeditiously and to make decisions, indisputably, guided only by the facts and the law. well,
3:03 am
let's think to heidi shake has strategies following this force in washington dc. i didn't talk us through the timing han hi nathan. yet so absolutely trumps announcement this week that he is going to run for president. again that shifted that dynamics here. really a suddenly we have this perceived conflict of interest. that is obvious. we have one candidate whose own department of justice is investigating potentially their biggest political rival for office biden versus trump. and so it's appointing the special council. it is not a perfect solution to that perceived conflict of interest, but it does at least add one extra layer of perceived independence, though, notably, it's still going to be biden's attorney general, who ultimately decide whether or not for president trump would face criminal charges. so who is the special council with jack smith, as you said,
3:04 am
currently serving as a war crime prosecutor at the international criminal court at the hague. he is now heading back to washington where he has had a long tenure as well. most recently leading the department of justice is public integrity section in which he won high profile convictions of politicians, who were both republicans and democrats. that may have been a major selling point merit garland. the attorney general was searching for someone who could be seen as credible from both sides. and smith has been described as a political by those who know him. 5 well, and as a consummate professional by the books prosecutor. but he has an immensely difficult job ahead of him because he is now over taking over these 2 investigations, one into whether or not trump committed crimes in his efforts to overturn the last presidential election results. and secondly, whether he should be indicted for taking national security documents to his private
3:05 am
residence after leaving office, and whether he obstructed justice in the efforts to invest to gate those acts. and there is plenty of pressure for speed as well. we just heard the tourney general say that this vocations will still be expeditious. the new special council inherits the work that's already taken place for over a year in the case of the capital right investigation. and so this is not starting all over. he's just taking over but time is of the essence because the closer we get to the 2024 presidential election, the more political this investigation will appear in d. and it will be hearing from trump, i believe in the coming out as, as well. how do you share custard for us in washington d. c. thanks heidi who take take care finkelstein. she is a law professor at the university of pennsylvania and also the director of its center for ethics in the rule of law. she explains why attorney general merrick allan chose to appoint a special counsel. the main thing that's happened is that donald trump has declared
3:06 am
as a candidate for the presidency. and that potentially puts merrick garland in the position of conflict of interest. given that his boss, who has also said you will be running for president press empire, and you will be indirect conflict with former president trump and going into it might not have been strictly necessary at this early stage. a. but merrick garland is a, by the books kind of attorney general, he's extremely cautious. and he want any indictments that comes down regarding donald trump's actions would be beyond reproach all of the investigation. all of the consideration of evidence and the recommendation to indict will come from an independent prosecutor and the country has a long history of using independent prosecutors. this is pre me court decision that upholds the constitutionality of independent prosecutors. and i think that lens
3:07 am
grab a toss and independence to this investigation that helps to rebut some of the charges that will inevitably be made, that this was a purely political decision. the now the 1st trained to newly liberated her son has left ukraine's capital. restoring that critical railings between the 2 cities, the journey has been called the trains of victory and will arrive in the regional capital on saturday, work as a repair damage tracks and carriages which were vandalized by russian forces. the. 2 majority of your hands, rail network has remained operational during this war, despite repeated attacks. meanwhile, the u. k. prime minister says waves of russian missile strikes of crippled with half the country's energy, infrastructure officials and keep wanting that a complete shut down of the city's grid is possible. the un has warned of humanitarian emergency because of how and water shortages caves mentally cut skirts
3:08 am
as preparations are being made for rolling blackouts throughout the winter. we have to prepare and have a lot of warm stuff we have mitigation reserve for mitigation, but will be very unusual. unusual station. we hope it's not happens, but we have to be prepared for that. i said back has gone out from the vive. in some cases, the temperature is already below 0, and that's a major concern for authority. president lugging is left. you said there's about 10000000 people with electricity as this know for the main electricity provider has said that they're trying to keep the black hat short and on schedule many people around the country have been experiencing those electricity records as russian air strikes have targeted energy infrastructure in the last few days, some of the biggest massage beverages in this country has space since the sauce of the war world, allegedly, one of those missiles, at least according to the korean,
3:09 am
went over to poland. to go to people, the crane and the arguments that it was a russian massage. now we hear from the foreign minister here. he says that they are now a part of the investigation and they want to be open and constructive. but what we're hearing from poland, the united states and nato, is that it is unlikely that that was a russian. we saw that when cross the border to pull it in until 2 people. it's more likely that it was one from the ukrainian defense. but the investigation isn't finished, but ukraine is adamant. beckett was a russian massage out in the country. there's a richer region. the missile strike on thursday. the death for that when it hit the residential building has gone up to 10. and the nuclear power plant is a nuclear power plant. the russians occupied the class, the 3rd resolution urging russia its action against the ton well to malaysia. now where poles have just happened in the country is general election. malaysians will be choosing from 945 candidates with this food set to be the title. since
3:10 am
independence in 1957 for coalitions are seeking to win the 222 parliamentary seats at stake. well, that's bringing florida 3. she's out of hauling station for us in colored on for. so a very different dynamic this round from previous elections. it seems absolutely . this has been described as the most competitive elections in malaysia history. and that's because you have more than 2 strong choices, but voters choose from. and the 1st is the national front led by. i'm no party but you sort of, i suppose you can describe it as the grand old party of malaysian politics. now the national front has dominated malaysian politics for more than 60 years until it was voted out in the last election than does the opposition lead by former deputy prime minister turned opposition leader on why it brought him? the opposition has been making steady gains. it defeated the national front in the 2018 elections then the new come at the national alliance. but it's made up of old
3:11 am
faces. it comprises the malaysian islamic party as well as birth, such as seen as a splinter group of on the cell. also making the selection difficult to predict and also highly competitive is because there are 6000000 new voters because the ultimate, because of automatic voter registration. and also because the voting age has been lowered to 18 analysts say this group is extremely difficult to predict. they don't know how they're going to vote. many of them say they're still undecided, so they could be the potential wildcard in the selection. now one more thing that makes this difficult to predict and also competitive it because all 3 major alliances have had to chance in government. so voters have been able to see how they performed and they're going to be able to make their choices based partly on that flow. given all of this competition, can you told us through what's at stake in these election? so an analyst has described this as malaysians, really choosing between 2 visions that they want of a future malaysia put simply, they either choose more of the same or they choose something new. now,
3:12 am
more of the same means voting for the national front. the problem with the national front, as many of the leaders that the top ranks of the leaders are tainted with corruption . there is the former chief, not your brother, who is also the former prime minister, has already and been in prison for corruption, money laundering as well. as abuse of power, its current chief is on trial for corruption. then there is the national alliance. its people are not tainted with the same sort of corruption charges, but they are associated with the old way of doing things of dividing and conquering them just for instance its chief we'd in yes, in the recent campaign speech warned people born vote as not to vote for the alliance of hope, the opposition saying that they are dangerous choice, and he accused christians here of working with jews to christianize malaysia. then of course you have the opposition. the alliance of hope led by andre brought him. now that is seen as more multi racial, more reform minded and more liberal. so to outside this,
3:13 am
it might seem like an easy choice, but it's a lot more complicated in malaysia. this is a multi racial multicultural country. but traditionally, people vote along racial and religious lines and the majority here, the malay ethnic group who are all muslims who make up about 70 percent of the population. they have special rights and privileges. and the 2 groups who are seen as most willing to prioritize the rights of the late or the national fund and the national alliance. flying through that for us, watching that election in quite a long for thanks so much for arms will be speaking much more in the coming hours and days. castilla had here on out as in the taliban is said to reimburse public executions and amputations under strict islamic law. and will tell you what ellen mosque is trying to do now. after hundreds of employees quit under his sign or resign ultimate ah,
