desperation in a ruckus protests and violence gripping the country and. since the overthrow of saddam hussein. around the clock across the world this is our international from the team and myself you know neil alone welcome. general election campaigning in the u.k. house got off to a bad tempered start this wouldn't say with boris johnson launching its number of scathing attacks on the labor party leader the prime minister stated the public code vote for him. who he claimed feel to hold russia to a college over its alleged poisoning of a former spy in sort of spree last. come with us
a government that believes britain should stand tool in the world ok with generally cool being in the labor party who sided with putin when russia ordered poisonings on the streets. let's cross to kate partridge in loving kate what we've just heard there from the pm wasn't the only attack directed out the opposition leader oh either it's day one of campaigning we should remember as well quite a while to go. i there you know yes indeed 5 weeks of all this to come actually but quite interesting listening to what boris johnson's had to say over the past few days particularly today the prime minister there in the graph that you used referring to the script poisoning in salzburg in march 28th seen russia of course as we know got the blame but has consistently denied all allegations since then she said it's not the only russian thing that's cropped up on political point scoring on day one of the general election campaigning earlier prime minister boris johnson
also compared labor leader jeremy corbyn with stalin attacking the wealth of the of the land owning classes but in response though labor m.p. emily thornberry has also questioned the prime minister's top adviser dominic cummings and his connections with russia as he went there for 3 years after he graduated in the ninety's and also the prime minister is accused of a cover up in that number saying it was what combination of report by the security and the intelligence services about russian infiltration of british politics and certainly our pride. so we are bound to ask what is downing street so worried about why would they not welcome an official report into attempted russian interference in the 2016 referendum where the successful otherwise and i fear it is because they realize that this report will lead to other questions about the links between russia and brics it and with the current leadership of the tory party which risks the railing their election campaign. well however in response the minister
chris pensions said that there's nothing unusual in delaying the report ahead of the election and that there was no proof of any collusion by the supreme court's role of the rich for her to suggest that somehow the conservative party and this government is linked to russia and this information given the way that her own party leadership has acted and the responsibility of her own party leadership those . there is no evidence to suggest that the kremlin has successfully engaged in interference in electoral processes. to soviet 5 weeks to go until the general election the month slinging has started and of course the parties all trying to compromise one another but it seems that the best way to compromise and he's to put some alleged links with russia thanks very much live in westminster this hour kate partridge for r.t. . now
a leaked video appears to cast dice on the impartiality of america's a.b.c. news channel and it's a network anchor claims the station quashed her explosive interview with an accuser of the scrapes tycoon geoffrey epstein back in 2015 who allegedly detailed a convicted paedophiles predatory behavior the following is part of the video obtained by transparent secret project for atos. we have everything. i have i tried for 3 years to get it on to no avail and now it's all coming out and things lou well of revelations that i had i was so pissed right now that every day i get more and more pissed because i'm just like. it was all what we had it was unreal now this came to us from an insider within the network an insider who currently works at a.b.c. news leaked us this tape and that person is still on the inside so we expect more to come here it's quite telling that this insider leaked this tape to project their
it's us and not the washington post the new york times c.b.s. or c.n.n. because they seem to want to protect the people that we're working with jeffrey epstein again amy robach saying that f. epstein was blackmailing people there's a lot of powerful people on those airplanes that amy is 100 percent certain that he did not commit suicide i don't know why she won't say that publicly but there she is in the leaked tape on the set of the program saying these things when nobody is looking. a reminder of how this story developed 66 year old multi-millionaire jeffrey epstein was convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor in 2008 and was then registered as a sex offender in july this year he was arrested again and was about to face trial over the alleged creation of a sex trafficking network charges he has repeatedly denied before that a month later epstein was found dead in his cell in on a par and suicide. brings us more. live t.v.
one o one check your mike then check it again project veritas has published bombshell footage of an a.b.c. anchor recorded in late august shortly after the disgraced billionaire was found dead in his new york jail cell amy roebuck said over 3 years ago she had exclusive material relating to peter following material which had direct testimony from one of the victim's photos as well as other evidence of his dealings which implicated high profile figures like bill clinton prince andrew she told me everything she ensures everything she was writing for 12 years making history come out we can is here to talk to us it was unbelievable what we have cleared with everything robot claims the story was stopped from going to 2015 because according to the people as no one knew who was funny because just a few years before they'd been happily sipping champagne on his manhattan townhouse
you see back in 20 media heavyweights gathered out to dinner and on of the u.k.'s prince andrew a dinner which was arranged on hosted by you guessed it south and among those who wouldn't know who epstein was were both a.b.c. and c.b.s. phosphor 2015 managed to entice virginia robots to free one of the victims out of hiding produces few her and her family out to the a.b.c. h.q. in new york and hosted them and one of the big apple's most luxurious hotels what they got was the scoop of a lifetime to free through wind open the door in the marquee world of epstein and his entourage as they flew around the walls on his private jet dubbed the express palace found out that we have whole allegations of our prince andrew and threatened us a 1000000 different ways i viewed b.b.c.
interview. as a potential game changer appearing on a.b.c. with its wide viewership would have been the 1st time for me to speak out against the government for basically looking the other way and to describe the anger and betrayal victims felt i was defeated once again by the very people i spoke out against and once again my voice was silenced i could not believe that a formidable network like a.b.c. had backed down and given in and for all those who are going to cry conspiracy one of the times who was even came forward and confronted put pressure on the network to kill the story i simply provided a.b.c. with incontrovertibly evidence proving the jeffrey had a long history of lying about tipper and al gore her age and other matters and that her credibility could not be counted on and while this exposition was obsessing more salacious than all the reports on that side it wasn't the fust time his morals
had been called into question stories piecing together a tangled web involving bill clinton and prince andrew had sophos before images of the finance his little black book with hundreds of victims' names and mugged alongside testimony from a 14 year old go claiming to have had sexual relations with a billionaire manhattanites gossiped about how new york city it was being ferried around on his private plane to his private island along with the coterie of very young women but all those about the nation's just like robotics were put back in the troll at the time not all are reporting that our standards to air but we have never stopped investigating this story ever since we've had a team on this investigation and substantial resources dedicated to it that work has led to a 2 hour documentary and 6 point podcast that will air in the new year you'd be forgiven if that rings a bell because a.b.c.'s response is uncannily similar to. b c's comment about its
coverage. of of media mogul harvey weinstein in the end b.c. killed the story because they said you did not have enough facts that didn't reach their level of journalism yes we had multiple named women in every draft of the story we had audio of harvey weinstein admitting to a crime but more pertinently they ordered us to stop and it seems a.b.c. was not the only one to fall into the trap of enabling epstein to evade true media scrutiny but it's vanity fair and the new york times had several allegations of his inappropriate sexual behavior but chose to stick to safe stories on things like the origins of his wealth and was sought to be careful to avoid reporting some of the more suspicious details surrounding his death are a lot of men in those planes a lot of men visited that island the powerful man who came into our hands in 2 i think he was killed 100 percent yes and maybe a.b.c.
was right no one knew who epstein was or maybe it didn't want to get on the wrong side of some very powerful people people who with you believe the rumors might just now have blood on their hands. me roebuck house explained herself seeing the comments were made in a private moment of a straight while the founder of project for a tell us again james o'keefe sees a.b.c. doesn't shy away from of a particular high profile cases. you can see how frustrated amy robock when you listen when you watch this tape it directly contradicts what a.b.c. news is saying publicly now about not having enough corroboration there they're fine airing the allegations against maybe brett kavanaugh for or trump or anybody else but when it comes to bill clinton and some of these folks 'd that are mentioned by amy in this hot mike tape they say they just didn't have enough corroboration i'm not sure how a.b.c. news defines a corroboration when it comes to credible witnesses talking about sexual assault
but the only conclusion i can draw is that a lot of these network executives are very close to the people they were hanging out with jeffrey epstein per amy amy roebuck's. iraqi authorities are holding talks on quote constitutional amendments and made ongoing violence in the country and all that would mean surrounding it around $260.00 people who are believed to have been killed there not since the government demonstrators started on this just a month ago protesters are demanding a major overhaul of the entire political system which was a stop listening to the u.s. led invasion back in 2003 r.t.s. daniel hawkins has been delving deeper into a lot of. iraq is no stranger to turmoil the country see little peace and even less the belief he since the u.s. led invasion of 2003 mass protests and violence of regulating gulf the state of these though are the worst since the overthrow of saddam hussein 16 years ago
'd. hundreds killed dozens in just one week by live ammunition many 1000. injured amid a heavy crackdown by security forces or the government's deployed special forces imposed curfews and an internet blackout across the whole country but that's just angered crowds even more roads and bridges have been blocked by demonstrators who have also tried to take over buildings both in the capital baghdad and across other cities why is this happening to some these protests address years of grievances corruption unemployment poor public service is there
a source of anger across many countries but in iraq things should be different iraq should be thriving the country's oil revenue has exceeded 850000000000 in the post saddam years with production nearly doubling despite the internal strife with iraq estimated to hold almost 10 percent of the globe's proven reserves its prospects should be growing a report by the international energy agency predicts revenue to hit nearly 5 trillion dollars in just over 15 years time and optimistic estimates set back by years of conflict but you get the picture just months ago any joy in sex on a b.p. were fighting for the right to build a pipeline in the country with tens of billions of dollars at stake and yet a reality for most of the rockies is bleak last year iraq was ranked 168th out of under an 80 by a corruption index but for people surviving on a day to day basis that's one of the smallest concerns the world food program
reveals more than half of iraqis are at risk of food insecurity with unicef figures last year showing one in 4 children living in poverty so what happened former u.s. defense secretary robert gates stated on a visit to baghdad that a new era was just around the corner more than ever i believe the goal of a secure and stable and democratic iraq is within reach almost 12 years on things couldn't be further from the truth. now to make sense of post and to mention iraq and where exactly is grievances lawyer let's speak to nicholas j. davis author of blood on our hands the american invasion and destruction of iraq mr davis thanks so much for joining us today good to have you with us now these protests they've been going on since mid october where they show no sign of slowing down indeed there's been a government crackdown condemned by many organizations where do these grievances that law i that are spinning out with such violence all over the country the people
of iraq you know i still you know have really been ignored and all this they're still suffering from the absolute destruction and economic devastation of iraq by the u.s. invasion and occupation by statistics iraq having 10 percent nearly 10 percent of the world's oil reserves this should be a wealthy state yet we're seeing something quite different here how much of this is about that inequality about the wealth which is not trickling down which is being lost going on the drawing to a corrupt system there were large state owned companies that that was the very basis of the iraqi economy and they supported this you know mixed mixed economy beyond that that was all completely destroyed unemployment under the u.s. occupation at $1.00 each to at least 60 percent essential leave the sort of. you
know pyramid of power in you know occupied and post occupation iraq where you know this tiny group of u.s. and iranian backed exiles has said you know with u.s. and iranian support created a monopoly on power that the vast majority of the disenfranchised alienated people of iraq. i have never supported the u.s. who really has completely discredited itself from start to finish it has done nothing that has helped the people of iraq at all you know either before or after the invasion. a crucial witness and donald trump's impeachment inquiry has revised his testimony concerning the president's alleged abuse of power the u.s. ambassador to the e.u. states he no remembers telling you creating an official is not the release of
financial aid would likely depend on the opening a corruption investigation into joe biden gordon son one statement supports the contention all of the whistleblower who originally came forward claiming that mr trump pressed a foreign power for dirt on a potential presidential rival. also i now do recall a conversation on september 1st 29 seen in warsaw with you mr your mac this brief conversation followed a larger meeting involving vice president pants and president lensky in which president selenski had raised the issue of suspension of u.s. aid to ukraine directly with vice president pence after that large meeting i now recall speaking individually with mr your mac rest of that resumption of u.s. aid would likely not occur until ukraine provided the public anticorruption statement that we have been discussing for many weeks specifically u.s. democrats allege that donald trump trying to force ukrainian authorities to open an investigation into joe biden's soul involvement with ukraine's largest gas company
we asked former cia officer rima govern how he thinks the latest testimony will affect the impeachment push against the american president. it's a big mistake this is all a little game here in washington it's a big mistake for the democrats to circumscribe their their inquiry each mini henri to the you create a problem what effect is there now well. joe biden is out of the running as far as i'm concerned there's so much dirt on joe biden i just wonder what more dirt president truck was trying to dig out so as the stage become revealed it's going to be also revealed that the people talking to the democrats here and have been in touch with these other people like the whistleblower so-called and they in turn have been working for the deep state brennan and others and so you know the thing's
going to fall apart they should be shrunk right quick but not on these flimsy charges of quid pro quo well in another related development newly released documents suggest that the ukrainian gas for a moment tempted to use its ties to hunter biden to get a corruption inquiry into its business activities quashed it was while his father was u.s. vice president here scale up and with what's known. bristol holdings that's the natural gas firm in ukraine that vice president joe biden's son hunter biden worked for and it's now at the center of a scandal or i guess it isn't mainstream us media insists that any claims of wrongdoing are simply a conspiracy theory that donald trump made up there is a conspiracy theory that biden conspiracy theory vice president might paint has just repeated his bosses debunked conspiracy abidin conspiracy theory the conspiracy theories continue while documents that have newly been released under
the freedom of information act reveal that the u.s. government was already looking into potentially shady activities from the company in 2016 furthermore the documents reveal that verismo holdings even dropped the name of hunter by open to win a few brownie points from the obama administration but attorney karen tremont tonneau requested a meeting to discuss with undersecretary novelli the state department's official overseeing international energy u.s. government remarks alleging bruce ma the ukrainian energy company of corruption she noted that 2 high profile u.s. citizens are affiliated with the company including hunter biden as a board member another board member mentioned his meeting with u.s. secretary of state john kerry and the icing on the cake a month goes by and the prosecutor investigating barista holdings gets fired and we've got the vice president joe biden the father of hunter biden on tape bragging
that he made it happen i said you know i get the 1000000000 i'm going to leave in a year i think it was about 6 hours i looked as i'm reading in 6 hours that the prosecutor is not fired you're not getting the money well son of a. fighter now joe biden insists the only one of the prosecutor gone because he was known to be corrupt and that has nothing to do with his son's employers my insistence. that a prosecutor who is. viewed as corrupt be replaced. was the official position of the prison of the united states the united states government supported by republican senators who sent a letter sent a letter. in 2016 calling for the move show could because of corruption although the fired prosecutor claims otherwise biden was acting not like a us vice president but as an individual like the individual interested in having
me removed having me gone so that i did not interfere in the barisan investigation now mainstream us media glosses over it and says it's all just a big conspiracy theory well look over these facts for yourself and determine if you really believe everything here is just a ok. r.t. new york. there seems to be rarely a day when the situation in venezuela is not making global headlines but is it actually a north or south american country which is edging closer to all out civil war 6 board next and going underground. when else seems wrong. why don't we just don't. let me. get to shape out these days because that's a hit and it gains from it equals betrayal. when something find
