media release within the agency the woman in question held the position of a foreign service national these employees have their duties outlined very strictly as by default the secret service views everyone of them surprises as potential spies the woman's responsibilities were limited to things like translation cultural guidance administrative support and i don't mean to offend anybody here but this sounds more like the job description of a tourist guide rather than a spy a material employee and i wish i could say the guardian did not know all these things when publishing the article but they did prior to the guardian publishing their early u.s. secret service provided their editor their official statement clearly refuting in found information despite all this the article was published as is after all everybody loves a spy drama but some plots a better be saved for hollywood script. journalist john why believes many media

outlets over reliance on unnamed sources is a rolling the audience is trust. well this is very short the reporting in this is the epitome of fake news because without naming sources then they can make anything up they want and expect people to believe them and this is an out of if there's been spun over the last few years when it comes to russia they are forced to rely on unnamed sources because that is no to placing proper investigative journalism and this is just part of a downward spiral and it will only feed the growing distrust in the group growing this juncture between what people who are supposed to be reading the guardian and no longer believe is going on new world of what the guardian is tell them is going on it's a really big problem for the mainstream and the west. friday was day four of the trial of donald trump's former campaign chairman paul metaphor is the first trial
2:32 am
to result from the mole investigations probe into a supposed collusion between the u.s. president's campaign and russia and yet the charges brought against metaphors have nothing to do with russia or the campaign instead they are related to alleged tax fraud. they are going to mention the stage and then turn one to the center rather presidential campaign for all men aboard is on trial today and it's already moving at lightning speed it could also create the weans on man afford to cooperate with an all or on the broader investigation into russian collusion with it from the campaign. behold the fifteen thousand austrian man of her bought with an international why he transferred the current interim mans clear to testify today government exhibit it's
2:33 am
not about cool i mean if you're going to jail in part over a cold make a cold call that at least if i spend one million and suits and fifteen thousand on a jacket only to come out looking like manna ford i would see. this is an enormous waste of money in my view it is a gross miscarriage of justice it's setting for a lot of bad precedents and so it must be corrected i think in the end this this trial judge judge ellis is a remarkable individual he's being very tough on both sides but particularly on mahler i think the metaphor is likely to skate here i think that the special
2:34 am
counsel is likely to be told to stand down and then i think there's going to be a wholesale housecleaning of it i was hopeful anyway the wholesale house cleaning of the partment just this was a house cleaning of the iris elsewhere and then will give us the real investigations into who was conspiring to rig the primaries and rig the general election to sixteen. the f.b.i. has released its seventy one pages of alleged correspondence between the bureau and christopher steele the former british spy who authored a dossier alleging collusion between donald trump and russia records show f.b.i. payments to steal as a confidential human source over an unknown period they also show that steele told the f.b.i. he had informed a third party he was acting as a source for the bureau however the document is mostly empty with important information removed so much so that it almost looks like a blank form it follows the f.b.i.'s release of documents on former trump advisor
2:35 am
carter page with most of the text heavily redacted not documented as well. that's the good of a journalist max blumenthal thinks that despite the redactions the documents actually prove trump's narrative about f.b.i. clinton lucian during the two thousand and sixteen campaign these documents aren't heavily redacted they are completely whited out it's a literal whitewash i mean in this seventy one page file there is more white than at a coldplay concert or the republican national convention and it is all white it's a it's shocking really despite that complete redaction it it does confirm part of trump's narrative that the f.b.i. was colluding with the clinton campaign because we also know that christopher steele had been employed through fusion g.p.s. the opposition research firm in the contract was taken out by perkins koyo which was the law firm of hillary clinton's campaign. controversy has broken
2:36 am
out over a new tech editor hired by the new york times as it turns out sarah junger has a record of racist tweets dating back several years though she has since had deleted some of them the revelation has caused an uproar on social media some have even accused in the newspaper of double standards. oh man it's kind of sick how much joy i get out of being cruel to old white man. you must be so boring to be white council white people. democrats have redefined racism precisely so people like sarah jones can say racist things and still get jobs at the new york times would the new york times be so forgiving if white was replaced with black new york times i am an older white guy
2:37 am
and you find it ok with sarah jong inflammatory racist comments to be just fine shame on your double standard. sour on the stance that this type of rhetoric is not acceptable of the times and we are confident that she will be an important force for the editorial board moving forward. it's rector of the blockbuster guardians of the galaxy movies james dunn was just fired after offensive tweets dating from two thousand and eight i guess. today a.b.c. stepped up did the right thing canceling the hit reboot of roseanne after the star of the show roseanne barr doing something so for i wish i didn't have to repeat it . all you have to
2:38 am
do is take these tweets that she said and change it to no change it to black or even just say when men in the place of whites and people would have burned the new york. times down all over the fact that they were defending her behavior of course there's a double standard what i'm asking for is not that we burn any buildings down not that we fire everyone but that we come to terms with a neutral standard that everyone can adhere to and that everyone can comply with what she said shouldn't be allowed merely because the targeted group is the racial majority we should never be encouraging people and certainly not at the wall at the new york times to use racial categorizations
2:39 am
as a basis for casting aspersions we should never do that black white or brown. china says it will impose retaliatory tariffs on u.s. imports if washington goes ahead with threats to ramp up duties on chinese goods the threatened terms mark the second round of the ongoing trade dispute between the two countries. the customs tenor of commission of the state council decided to slap an additional tariff of fifteen or twenty five percent on one hundred twenty eight items of products imported from the u.s. from april second two thousand and eighteen chinese force to take control of the u.s. site persists in putin instead of measures into effect. he said it would impose tariffs on sixty billion dollars worth of u.s. goods including coffee honey and industrial chemicals the statement came after washington stated it was considering new duties on two hundred billion dollars
2:40 am
worth of chinese goods the list of products to be targeted by the u.s. tariffs is extensive but mostly focuses on chinese produced telephones t.v.'s and other high end technology items jeffrey albert tucker editorial director of the american institute for economic research believes there can be no winners in a trade war. well i'd like it to end today in the fact that never should have begun because the only victims here are american consumers american producers chinese consumers chinese producers there's nobody who wins from a trade war and there doesn't seem to be any end to it and i think there won't be any end to it for a very long time as a matter of fact if you look back to march peter navarro the trade advisor at the white house said. no countries would dare retaliate against us tariffs so i have the sense that maybe there was a certain level of naivety operating in the level of the white house and the trade
2:41 am
advisors and trump in particular that they really believe that this is just going to be just massive assertion of american power that hasn't turned out that way. in terms of the rest of the world other people do resent this and are fighting back and the remarkable thing about this is of course this is coming back to american consumers in the form of higher prices on consumer products and inputs that are reflecting themselves in higher prices for everything and that's going to inevitably result in job losses. thousands of yemenis have turned out in the capital in protest at ongoing sounded led coalition airstrikes was prompted by a deadly raid which killed dozens in the main port city who data saudi arabia denies carrying out air strikes in the area at the time instead blaming the attack on the rebels please be one of the videos you're about to see contain graphic

scenes yemeni officials say twenty people were killed and around seventy injured however a local t.v. station has reported that fifty two are least one hundred strikes hit in an area near the city's main hospital yemen's health ministry is clear on who it thinks is to blame. the health ministry strongly. dams the crime of targeting the hospital in the fishermen's market in the. united states bears full responsibility because the united nations and its organizations and the international community have remained silent in the freezer of the gratian from the american is really the coalition and its allies and their crimes for more than two thousand two hundred twenty days ago and. that the saudi led coalition has been at war with the rebels since march two thousand and fifteen when it sided with the government and joined the civil conflict since that intervention un says the situation in yemen has become the world's worst humanitarian crisis and aid organizations are struggling. greater
2:43 am
your situation is very it could be described as consistent i think as the going to . put. in there's anything else. in the world in terms of health care. for. all of the us and the international committee of the it's gross and this is where i see that it's been many. will not. be. there when we engineers are going to close the old school. next to avoid that's true the duty should be to use to research in. saudi arabia and the us have enjoyed wide military cooperation both under the trump and obama administrations washington provides riyadh with billions of dollars worth
2:44 am
of planes tanks and other military equipment but now united states you want a basket or seems to perceive the latest attack on civilians as a new development despite the same scenario having played out for years. we had that a saudi led coalition had airstrikes today against a fish market and a hospital in who data that may have caused dozens of casualties we've hit a new day now in yemen. and we've had a new sense of urgency and. that if this is what started to happen civilians are at risk infrastructure is at risk for nikki haley it just occurred today which is unfortunate because the united states is actually supplying a lot of the logistics and the intelligence for the saudi. and you don't hear too
2:45 am
much criticism he should have been out there months ago condemning what the the the humanitarian catastrophe that's occurring in yemen i assure you just you just cannot be nice about this any longer or or just overlook it because it's gone on for too long and too many people have been have been killed and you wonder and you have to ask yourself the question what's the point. in unprecedented ruling a british judge has recognized an islamic faith marriage as being legal under u.k. law the case was brought by a muslim woman who wants to divorce her estranged husband the couple were married at a traditional muslim wedding ceremony also known as twenty years ago but it was regarded as a religious ceremony and therefore not a civil marriage under u.k. law the husband had.
