10:01 am
the country in gold in violence and divide it between rival leaders we look at what appears to be america's tried and tested recipe for regime change. you can watch a stone in the form of political advisor to the trump campaign and long term i like to see with the president was arrested by the f.b.i. a multiple charges and an american iranian journalist was released after spending ten days in u.s. custody speaks to wate about her. most of the time i was in solitary ok i was locked up i couldn't come out they said that you were on suicide watch suicide watch. i mean i'm definitely not going to kill myself. hello good evening welcome you watching our scene to national where she's come six pm here in. our top story tonight the venezuelan president has ordered his
10:02 am
diplomats to leave the u.s. nicolas maduro announced he was severing diplomatic ties with washington after the trumpet ministration backed the opposition leader one why i don't know who's declared himself the interim president of the country but your accuses wide over being america's puppet. i wanted to do you invent his way that the president is elected by washington and of course they take anyone from the street who wants to be a president nicolas maduro has cut diplomatic ties between venezuela and the united states from what we understand the venezuelan embassy in the united states in washington d.c. has closed i have decided to include diplomatic and consular staff and from the united states includes our embassies and consulates in that country. was an opposition figure he's part of the national assembly and in front of a crowd of his supporters he recently took an oath and declared himself to be the interim president of venezuela saying that nicolas been during the elected
10:03 am
president who was just recently re inaugurated is not legitimate now he's gotten support from brazil argentina and sheila and all of them basically following the lead of u.s. president donald trump trump declared that one way to was indeed the interim president of venezuela even though no election took place in order to get him that title now more recently in the aftermath of trump's recognition of wedo we heard some rather fiery words from u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o the time for debate is done. the regime former president nicolas maduro is illegitimate the united states is ready to provide more than twenty million in humanitarian assistance to the people of venezuela these funds are to help them cope with the severe food and medicine shortages and i or other impacts of the country's political and economic crisis the public in venezuela has been somewhat divided with two people claiming to be the president of
10:04 am
venezuela the situation could escalate very rapidly that would not only have implications in venezuela but could have very global implications as well. and reporting now with venezuela's ambassador to russia to tell us why he thinks this is a case of meddling. it's completely ridiculous to think that we can listen to or accept a person who proclaims himself president that would be as if would recognize hillary clinton as president just because trump won the election with fewer wants than her but nobody ever raised this issue as they have their own internal rules these rules are agreed internally so why should we allow the u.s. to dictate to us what to do in our country. what is not the first time that washington has been accused of interfering in other country's affairs looks now whether events in venezuela are actually following a tried and tested recipe starting an uprising a revolution is simple enough first comes the pressure sanctions built up
10:05 am
gradually first it was a few officials and then they sanctioned the president and state companies and the government itself through deed and word they helped show then they are into a crisis we are waiting all of our policy options as to what can we do to create a change of conditions were either look girl that doesn't have a future or we can return. the government processes to their constitution we are not going to tolerate the dictatorship he's trying to create if then as well and people deserve better than what the regime of nicolas maduro offers them now that the country and people are in economic misery and you vilified its leaders because hero like thirty five year old u.s. educated head of the national assembly which as it turns out the united states has
10:06 am
been quietly assisting financially and helping for a while who would have thought. by now you should have caused enough trouble problems on top of everything out starforce even the app a little into the streets the more noise the better. and you mustn't let things calm down keep shouting keep agitating. in the anarchy the chaos the confusion comes a special moment when lord breaks down when loyalties crumble when brother turns on
10:07 am
brother in the street partly thanks to you that moment do something crazy like denounce the government proclaim a new i'm elected president. i'm mike pence the vice president of the united states the united states supports the courageous decision by one god or the president of your national assembly to assert that body's constitutional powers declare madeira your serp or and call for the establishment of a transitional government now is the time for more direct action get all your friends on board as many nations to recognize one go edo as president quickly as possible as no going back now on bia colombia recognizes one quite as president of venezuela and will assist in the transition to democracy to liberate the venezuelan people from the dictator brazil has just issued
10:08 am
a note recognizing one why do as venezuela's president. will support this realization in a democracy alongside other countries in the lima group we recognize and express our full support for the president of venezuela seemed by the president of the national assembly one it is clear that nicolas maduro is not the largest. that's leader of venezuela so the united kingdom believes that plan is the right person to take on his way to forward there's heavy pressure from the us certainly all of the allies i mean countries like under us that are aligned with the united states are going to be expected to parrot this line if you go back to one nine hundred seventy three in the attempt to overthrow salvador allende it was exactly the same playbook we're watching a replay these are the kinds of tactics that the american government has used to overthrow regimes that it considers hostile to us business interests certainly smaller countries will feel the pressure especially within latin america from the
10:09 am
united states to play the game you see if your country just so happens to be in the americas you're in washington's hemisphere which it seems justifies meddling interfering and changing governments at will but just to be sure bully them at the know that if you don't get what you want you'll beat the lights out of them and take what you want to drink. without considering any thing but all options are on the table that would be your theory which is all options all of us all options and there you go sparking uprisings one o one now this may all take some practice and tweak here or there but it works tried and tested time and time again but the consequences are a whole other story. we're against the if there were the venezuela crisis has split much of the world right leaning latin american governments are backing one why the
10:10 am
e.u. has called for fresh elections although it hasn't formally recognized why the president support for the jury meanwhile has been voiced by china and russia and then in latin america by bolivia cuba and also mexico turkey is also back and. so on. you must respect the ballot box if you don't respect the ballot box this is not democracy it is a totalitarian mindset or as a person who believes in democracy the announcement by president trump shocked me more when someone just because other countries are not well the way he runs it is on the micro that the person who declared himself. was elected as a member of quality was speaker of the parliament and had looked after but he was not elected president we witnessed. here in back in july two thousand and
10:11 am
sixteen we are all military doctor or well it was our own people who went with their bare arms yes the military they start. if anyone tries to do to year with that people will do whatever it takes to make sure that there will continue to run the government. another piece tonight a long time political adviser of donald trump has been arrested and indicted on a number of charges it is part of the miller investigation into alleged russian collusion although it isn't clear if the charges directly related to that i spoke with artie's done. you know what more then can you tell us about what's happened here well roger stone a longtime trump associate he was arrested this friday early morning in fact after a grand jury indicted him on several counts the one count of obstruction of an official proceeding five counts of fools statements and one count of witness
10:12 am
tampering now these are the sort of the official charges roger stone is facing also the prosecution is apparently looking into the believe that rogers still was trying to get access to the e-mails later released by the weekend leaks those e-mails of course containing a lot of then trump's political opponent hillary clinton as a matter of fact it is also the first time the prosecution has indicated that they are aware of other people also at the time close to donald trump who they say were working with roger stone to get their hands on those e-mails mr stone not the first person to be indicted by the miller probe either well indeed his are one of the one of the names in the succession of people who were brought in for questioning and just arrested in this probe but the interesting thing here is the
10:13 am
this is officially called while this is the the probe has the nickname as of a russian probe for example and roger stone's indictments in the list of indictments russia is not mentioned once i mean it does get a brief mention in the introductory part of the official document but the indictments themselves or they contain no mention of russia whatsoever and i should say this is far from the first case other people many many other people brought into for questioning and arrested within the framework of this supposedly russia probe they're facing charges ranging from obstruction of justice to lying under oath and so on and so forth but russia is nowhere near that all that said how do you anticipate then that. political opponents will react to this nice well of course that the democrats which are right now dominating the lower house of the of the parliament they of cause really really want to keep the impeachment thing on top of things they want to keep the impeachment rhetoric relevant so i'd say
10:14 am
they're quite likely i'd say they're quite likely to use this arrest to the roger stone arrest. talking point for them and also of course that this is a challenging time for donald trump because he's facing the longest government shutdown in history so the moment this government this shutdown is resolved and the government gets back to its work you could really hear more calls for impeachment directed right adam. supporters in the u.s. to being compared to members of the ku klux klan a number of media outlets and celebrities have likened their make america great again to the white hood the infamous racist group. has more. this is a hat where it says make america great again they now call it the maggot hat this is a cook look square hoot they used to terrorize fried african americans and those different
10:15 am
shapes. purposes however. this make america great again hat is just as maddening and frustrating in sugaring for me to look at as a k.k.k. hood many people have called donald trump of filthy racist in the past what's up with this new wave of how the hate now even though something that's now compared to the k.k.k. fashion has been worn by african-americans or the l.g.b. t.q. community well just remember that white teenagers versus native american vets situation the viral video sweeping the internet of a mob of maggie wearing high school students surrounding a native american chanting and drumming in the nation's capital it is disturbing students mocking native american dad some of them harassing and jeering at a native american elder so much and the story was twisted as we learned from videos that emerged later as you can see the teen dubbed as the shameless bully was just
10:16 am
standing still and smiling at the man with the drum who had come up to him but that's not important because the student was wearing a maggot hat people who judge me based off one expression and they've gone from there to. me and labeling me as a race this person do you think if you weren't wearing that hat this might not have happened or it might have been different that's possible oh the had does mean so much and again don't forget that from now on and the minds of so many people people whose voices matter. the red maka hat is the new white hood without white boys being able to empathize with other people humanity will continue to destroy itself and so it's probably only natural that americans wearing maggots have gotten themselves in trouble.
10:17 am
in the first. sports. help your cause you're. just been asked to leave the store trying to get your hands if you through your house my hand i don't. like. people like you so who knows how far that kind of bowling may get soon some of the media have tried very hard to make you associate mr trump with the k.k.k. now with this hat situation it must have become a much easier job and you frank reporting than that still to come this hour it's nice interior minister has taken a swipe at the foreign affairs chief in iraq over migration we'll have a look at that press of the stories too on the way just after the break.
10:18 am
when lawmakers manufactured. public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. in the frame of. the one percent. nor middle of the room six. million. in the instant media darling and certainly a fresh face the newly minted congresswoman alexandria cortez is rattling some democratic establishment cage's she calls herself
10:19 am
a democratic socialist and she has some big clients is a democratic party and america ready they see. again now italy's interior minister and deputy prime minister has taken a swipe at the foreign affairs chief federica more greeny monticello vini said she'd forgotten her italian roots and his words came as the considers shutting down the italian led search and rescue operation for migrants in the mediterranean. person who represents us in europe was put in that position by the first quarter of the now off to being the point it got how to be in the towel in well meanwhile salvini could face trial over his refusal to let
10:20 am
a group of migrants disembark from a rescue vessel last year that after a court in italy overruled a previous ruling by prosecutors to drop the charges the politician known for his hard stance of migration is suspected of abusing his power and holding people against their will be reacted by taking to twitter saying he could face up to fifteen years behind bars he also said to you that the decision had left him speechless adding though that he feared nothing he vowed to continue defending italy's borders from illegal migrants but meanwhile a new opinion poll by the world economic forum shows shows that italy is among the most skeptical of european countries when it comes to migrants more than two thirds of italians questioned consider having migrants in the country to be mostly bad or discusses a bit further now we're joined by. the chair of the department of human sciences it seems to be universally mislead and you're very welcome thanks for coming on salvini says he has the support of the people here when it comes to his tough
10:21 am
stance on migration is the just doing what people want. well i don't think so i don't think the majority of people want to. do such a bad situation with my. people literally of on the. left stranded in the sea. in the italian government against the moon agreements there are some low bar. in the italian government. was back and so made me. while the migration problem is not the major the biggest problem we have incident. do you think the problem has been excess. baited by the policy because when you listen to salvation he says look we want to deport illegal migrants we're not saying no to everybody but we've got a real problem here and the e.u. it is policies in his eyes have failed and he sees that italy is just bearing the
10:22 am
brunt of this crisis while in the us some of those possibilities are the same time out when it's not completely right in saying that. i mean there are some agreements . with you we are part of you and we have to comply with the rules of the options we've got we can begin to get it alexy if there is an intellect of our own policy as longer we stay in the european union comply with. the daleks and personally i also in favor of the rule of law respecting the law when. it is part of the problem sorry to interrupt but some e.u. countries don't actually follow you know do they exactly because they don't agree to the quota system that's being implemented and that of course is causing a problem. yes because some of the counties don't agree with the quota system this
10:23 am
is not the problem i mean for it is a problem for the european union because i mean if you are part of the union or part with the ration in the sense of and you have to live with the laws of all the counties must comply or. you must be reformulated must be. going back to the audience of the free for the rich and the people and so we have to think at the same essence the same idea the same values which are on the need for the construction of the. you don't feel though then that italy's reaching a breaking point when it comes to migrants because they're on the front line aren't they when migrants head i have from north africa italy has to pick them up. yes absolutely but this is also a humanitarian. and we have to remember that in turn and so while some are still going through i mean if you if you think if you think the balance between those italians. especially our graduates ability to call us and go and work or
10:24 am
if we were in the world. including russia i mean you understand that the balance is not enough and more people are leaving the people who are coming in so i mean migration is a very complex phenomenon that we have migrants from try not mind once. or form forms. and some other. sort them are grants. who committed to manage these illegal way are just the minority moderates which are going to come. under a lot of people leaving them so it is a very complex phenomenon that we have to look in the entirety and we cannot just say the nominal and talk about the. people in the middle and then by understanding what we should do we should. almost eight of the thirty years. sure ok look paolo really appreciate your insight we're going to have to leave it there
10:25 am
