once upon a time was top secret what is. seems to suggest and this is not what it says black on white in a memo seems to suggest that was political bias in opening up an investigation. into the donald trump campaign and possible collusion that that what might have been. with russia and the russian intelligence agencies what it does say and remember this is a partisan document written by republicans it says that the fbi and the department of justice that it they use the wrong surveillance methods around the used the wrong information that was. on the verified to be able to put
2:32 pm
surveillance on one of donald trump's a foreign policy aides his name is called to a page and that's unverified information that was used to get those warrants was the infamous dossier that was put together by. christopher steel a former a british intelligence agents that is essentially the crux of the matter republicans say that this is a now fate had to be out in the public space and the us president's anything's this is significant. democrats say this is clearly insufficient there is not enough information this is a documd its contents on the possible consequences of its release. recalls the washington and speaks are is and who's a legal analyst and former us
2:33 pm
federal prosecutors thank you so much. for joining us this memo claims of the fbi the justice department abuse that power they spied on the trump campaign a century relied on that famous now. report compiled by a former british intelligence official as its main premis. does not claim. in your view hold water from a legal standpoint. not really because first of all that. dossier has not really been demonstrated to be overall unreliable number one but number two and perhaps most importantly there was probably or so it seems a great deal of other information in addition to the dossier that was presented. in the problem with this memo is it seems to just want to focus everybody's attention. by misleadingly indicating that only this dossier were implying that only this dossier was presented. when really they were a great deal of other things in addition to the dossier. but
2:34 pm
to get back to the first point we don't know that this steel dossier was fundamentally inaccurate. in so far as it is key premises concerned which is that there were repeated attempts made by russian officials to infiltrate the trump campaign and indeed the fbi had already had separate informational george papadopoulos another foreign policy adviser. was approached by russian agents in london. on numerous occasions and that he had been sold at the after that the russians had penetrated hillary clinton's emails of the dnc emails so when all of that is put together there doesn't seem to be anything nefarious and wondering whether. this other adviser carter page it already made trips to moscow and was already identified on intercepts by american intelligence. as as having been subject of conversations among russian agents the effect that well he's eighty eight but he's willing idiot and so therefore this is our
2:35 pm
kind of guy. when you put all that together doesn't seem anything wrong and wondering if there's supposed to be a if maybe this is the person's activities should be surveilled. so all in all this does not appear to support the president's goal of trying possibly to ask. some of the game. figures at an apartment justice. okay did so you will be you don't think they'll be any major. implication any major for ousted in in this case. insofar as the department of all of justice is concerned. what it whether there will be is a separate question from whether there should be yeah i think? yeah i don't think there should be but that but that you know many things have happened that should not have happened which everybody recognizes right now that separate from what will happen the president is clearly. signaled. his incense to to try to remove some of these people and the reporting from people close to him as in the past that he's been very
2:36 pm
close to exercising his. of forty such as it may be to do that has had to been talked out of it. in vary dramatic fashion so there's no guarantee that he may not try to do that here and he has said he feels. that this is the efficient to reach a judgment that there's some sort of profound wrongdoing and there are those of his supporters and there are certainly numerous republican people in the house of representatives at least. that are willing to come to that conclusion not all but many. will use this as a pretext to try to take further action but it's thing rule is very very thin gruel and if something dramatic is done based on just this mem. there will be more storm clouds ahead for certain. it's difficult all the time from this side it lands a goody right you know why. a memo written by the president's own policy that he then declassified should be. of any particular interest all consequences it
2:37 pm
is without precedent in your view. i a yeah it is without president's particularly in the context of national security and what had been up to this point the sort of bipartisan approach. in intensive it to keep politics as much as possible out of these sort of counter intelligence in intelligence investigations this is really going on you territory. where you have the white house declassifying something against the wishes of the president's own intelligence advisors in own intelligence agencies because there saying look no good will come of this is very misleading? it may disclose sources and that is that we don't want to disclose so this type of a conflict is on president and if the president on the basis of this memo which as you accurately pointed out. is just second hand reporting of what could be thousands of pages of other documents that we have not seen.
2:38 pm
on the basis of this tries to take some dramatic action to remove individuals for the sole purpose of. the impeding the investigation against his own connections with russia. certainly. this will be a crisis the likes of which. we probably did not even see the watergate era. okay well thank you so much are happy that he so much of a sharing that with us every is and legal analyst and former. us federal prosecutor thank you so much and. for us and for. we will now full migrants fighting for their life this friday evening after being shot stirring series of fights which broke out of an ice in northern french city of cafe. this happen as a crowd of mostly every train an afghan migrants queue up at a food distribution center. any those camped out in the area hoping to cross the channel installed in your life in united kingdom. the french government schools the escalation of violence in conde unbearabl. to three fights broke out
