>> people of hong kong see what is coming. the response by the authority under pressure from beijing. vie. >> the administration and the president himself should voice their support for the protesters in hong kong. which would send an important message to the chinese communist party not to get involved or anyway escalate the situation. reporter: chinese government has condemned that passage of the act, saying it does nothing more than encourage what they call, anti-china radicals. >> for his reaction, bring in retired brigadier general spalding, general? >> i think they convened. chinese communist party said, they will do same thing to hong

justice department angry that strzok may have buried the hillary probe. >> my concern is he obstructed justice by threb rattily burying a very important investigation to hillary clinton's misuse, negligent handling of most classified material we have in possession of government by placing it on a unsecured server in her home. elizabeth: what do you think, john? did he obstruct justice. >> there a problem with the case, irk ropy for me is that strzok used his open personal devices for fbi information while he is investigating the use of personal devices for sensitive information. it makes no sense. >> here is the other thing, we read office of professional responsibility lotter to strzok, he is trying to get reinstated said he committed dereliction of
supervisor responsibility, and sat on e-mail for months, thousands of everybody mailing covering hillary time as secretary of state, to to, nothing was done until another case agent in new york said, to cold federal prosecutor, he was scared and paranoid, someone was not acting appropriately. >> you know i that think that speaks to agents when fbi, what the agent in new york was complaining about, there are so many qualified stilled agents. why it was run out of headquarters be a half mile down the road there are a thoughts agents that are betweened for these kind investigations. >> the sake accusation has been made about fbi handling of the russia probe. the other thing, strzok is quoted as saying in his
response. it was misplaced to think that the e-mail should be treated with more urgency, these team could get to the e-mail after the election, that strzok is quoted that e-mails were wot a tickinnot aticking terrorist ti. what is your reaction is that report? >> again. evidence is evidence. you don't sit on evidence until this convenient for you, you act on it, in a timely manner, most important thing is swift justice. what we want to do get this information in hands of prosecuters, where it belongs. the time table is now. not tomorrow, not the day after tomorrow. elizabeth: okay. so we're looking at the text-messages, trump never will become president, right, right, no. >> -- is astonishing.
