u.s. attorney general jeff sessions has announced a hunt for the tens of thousands of missing text messages sent by f.b.i. employees they were sent at the height of the agency's probe into the alleged russian meddling in the u.s. presidential election some of the exchanges that was seen raise serious questions about anti trant bias within the f.b.i. from washington that his summer can. months of text messages between two f.b.i. staffers linked to the trump of russia propane have gone missing one of the agency's peter struck he oversaw the investigation into alleged russian interference now he was also part of robert muller's team that was looking into suppose the pollution between trump and the problem prior to that the clinton e-mail investigation which went nowhere and then there's lisa paige a lawyer for the department of justice who also worked for robert muller the couple came into prominence back in december when their private text conversations were released to congress girls hillary should win. i know.
and maybe your man just the way you are because your man to protect the country from that manifest. thanks it's absolutely true that we're very very fortunate and of course i'll try and approach it that way these text messages proved that both struck and page were biased in favor of hillary and the messages even hint at some nefarious political activity so when they wanted to dig deeper it turned out the rest of their conversation had disappeared the f.b.i. described the dates last misconfiguration issues related to rollouts provisioning and so for upgrades the conflicts with the f.b.i.'s collection capabilities but let's look at the time frame of these text messages december fourteenth twenty sixteenth roommates seventeen twenty seventy and when did muller's investigation into prussian blue should start oh look may seventeenth twenty seventeen surprisingly convenient the timing is just too coincidental seems that they were trying to plant the evidence somehow as an insurance policy thinking that trump had
no way of getting elected and then when he did scrambling in order to try to stop the election or to create the necessity of an impeachment of trump they were conspiring inside the f.b.i. to figure out how to catch trump on some sort of you know criminal activity having a russian connection russian money laundering. being involved with putin in the in the russian drug collusion of which they've provided zero evidence. the disappearance of crucial data is not uncommon in the u.s. intelligence community the n.s.a. recently revealed it accidentally raised surveillance information to simply free up space on its hard drives the data was related to the presidential surveillance program or p.s.p. which included warrantless wiretapping during george w. bush's time in office the n.s.a. was ordered to preserve the information by a court as it was deemed important to a number of pending lawsuits the b.s.p. internet content that are merged great cheerier that were broadly used to delete
dead of a certain type in response to mission requirements to free up space and improve performance of the backup system the n.s.a. has no reason to believe at this time that the continent data was specifically targeted for deletion. now russia's defense minister has revealed that moscow is in talks with several nations over the purchase of a state of the art russian missile defense system r.t. . has more details. it's acknowledged as one of the best air defense systems out there it can strike eighty targets at a time at a range of four hundred kilometers even if they're travelling at five kilometers a second i'm always about to say an hour but no a second so perhaps that's why there is high demand as four hundred isn't on develop technology still on the drawing board or sitting in a dusty warehouse it's on active duty in syria protecting russian units there.
i. the russian army's top man hasn't revealed the names of the systems next buyers but he did mention the regions the middle east and southeast asia he's touring that part of the world right now mr scheuer who says whenever he's talking to army bosses from other countries there's always discussion about buying russia's defense technology so soon we'll find out who is next in line for the last four hundred i say next
because turkey has already got a contract and when they signed the papers it was big news sure that's a nato member washington's key ally that's counting on russian engineering to keep its safe somewhere else that military might is all but dependent on america is saudi arabia but a few months ago the saudis and the russians agreed on an ass four hundred deal as well china is getting it and india too let's see if the name of the next customer comes as a surprise. gemini's hanover airport has witnessed a mass brawl between turks and kurds as tensions flare of a turkey's minute train cocksure into northern syria we'll have all the details after this break.

thousand pound anchor began its latest military operation against the syrian kurdish fighters at the end of last week if you use them as terrorists and is concerned about the growing consolidation of power in northern syria political commentator i doubt darwish told us that washington must take a clear position on the hostilities and help the two sides work towards a solution because we find themselves powerless against the higher truth as we have seen and they are fortunate the scenes from frankfurt and probably other places could actually spill over effect europe a few people will see far away it's very very hard actually to the american foreign policy at the moment first the americans have to explain to the allies of the our side of the world what is the least raji and the policy bonds you wish. do the war
actually to have a peaceful settlement in syria. keep the. critically gritty of syria's edition it is this well i would love to do the actually want to see peace. one of the largest consulting firms in the world ernst and young has been accused of multiple illegal dealings a former employee says he was fired for revealing the allegations disclose that the accounting giant is involved in bribery money laundering and the cover up of illicit gold purchases from conflict zones igor if you're done after has that he tells the story hidden in the court papers filed by this auditor against his ex bosses could be one of the grandest smuggling scams greed money laundering and baghdad dealings measured in billions of dollars. is accusing one of the world's biggest audit in firms of covering up the tracks over dubai precious metals
megacorp act one. ernst and young for an audit inspectors come to dubai and the first thing they see is a pile of moroccan gold buyers casually bundled up on a desk stacks of gold at a gold refinery could be business as usual except these bars are literally painted silver in order to sneak them into dubai four to five tons of gold gold bars coated silver smuggled old to more cool arriving in dubai declared as gold when the team found the discussed it with with colucci the admitted this is the way of doing business with the with these moral consult lawyers inspectors do some more digging and what they reveal brings us to act two some of the precious metal in kolaches coffers could be blood gold shuffling through papers auditor's discover the refinery was more than happy. to shake hands with small mining operations in
sudan and the democratic republic of congo apparently colossi ask for no licenses offering cash in hand in exchange for gold proceeds from such sales in conflict torn countries are known to directly fuel gang wars which are responsible for hundreds of civilian deaths soldiers naam group leaders see in control of the gold mines as a way to money guns and power for forty each other ruthlessly often targeting civilians in the process so ernst and young employees calm through kolaches cash transactions that's when we get to act three apparently the company deals in cash almost as much as in conventional bank transfers the billions of dollars go into a legal black hole impossible to trace so the auditor's diligently record every failure of the dubai giant but there's no pat on the bag for them from the boss we requested a meeting with the babies to get it or when they realized that we're not going to
alter our findings or change them they went ahead and. changed it on good lines in such a way that our findings and all for their conclusions will not be made public ernst and young have denied allegations they were in cahoots with the group the dubai refinery is still in business saying there's been no material impact on their ability to operate or trade i'm just rehired the man who led the team and expose the alleged wrongdoings says the audit in giant branded him a troublemaker and sacked him so is blowing the whistle a noble thing or just a falls here and in this saga it's left up to the court. of r.t. . it turns out and north korean pop star who was thought of being executed is now going to lead our country delegation at the upcoming winter olympics and it's not the first time it's been confusion over the well being of high profile figures from that part of the world.
about time round up of our top stories don't forget to check us out on social media on twitter you tube and our website that faulty dot com you know neal will be here at the top of the hour with all the latest news so don't go away. join me every thursday on the all excitement short and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm sure i'll see you then. as you read the stand in here from us and. our own. move from one.
of our those that are on our show at the fair are rather than what are the four for medicare that. i'm going to let them but i don't touch and then you cut them and keep an e-mail i didn't lose a child with a truffle that it doesn't make just. about anyone then i'm on my machine little so i know it does. then but suddenly on the highway from the innocent to it. get this whole food place choice the i knew where you're from and theosophy chime in syria has said. is she ought to give up somewhere else for the name after the
couple farts around the mr hates it for jim and then oil for food our family and of course. the money. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry suddenly i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each fret. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was a cave still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters my mind gets consumed with death this was quite different as i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that
this is the report we're a bit coy my enemy we were here a year ago there were big points like mine under it talked a broad picture said this was their year twenty seven team to go to all kinds of move crazy yeah it sure did they're experiencing a bit of a poll but. yes there is quite a little bit of a pullback if you want to call fifty percent correction and more. you and i are quite used to this we've seen this many times sixteen ninety percent corrections and the market so who knows it could fall even further it could the two hundred day moving average by the way is at eight thousand it could fall beyond that who knows but you know what has collapsed to nothing that is currently i'm the headline reads collapse of construction giant with forty three thousand employees globally sparks fear and may have so max you know kirlian is a two hundred year old infrastructure company which builds hospitals schools
prisons just to line in total the firm participated in four hundred fifty public service projects in the united kingdom this is part of the p.f. ideals of private finance and initiatives this is just one of the companies a two hundred year old infrastructure company is collapse has been liquidated i saw that shareholders might actually get between less than a penny and six p. back to the pound invested in the company remember the reason i bring this up is because bitcoin was birthed into the world january third two thousand and nine the genesis block and in that genesis block it mentioned the collapse of the banks in the u.k. that were being bailed out two hundred year old banks were being bailed out now we see two hundred year old. infrastructure companies being bailed out yeah it's great really juxtaposition of that point and the kirlian story and as you point out it's echoes the two thousand and eight bank collapse that spawned the creation bit coy
as a way to fight back against what is hyper financialization trillion is a victim of financialization and just like many companies in the u.k. and around the world private marketeers buy up lots of stock they load these companies up with debt while extracting equity and then they let the company cole lapse under the weight of it's own debt the p.f. ice games were over there in the u.k. it's a quasi government private sector deal it was all was an all is a slush fund we've actually been reporting on this for a member of years saying these deals will collapse as guaranteed now cruelly and house collapse as we predicted. exactly as we said a would collapse because you cannot grow trees to the sky like you try to do with trillions well by the way just so you know where we're here in miami where the brick out area of miami and this is you might see some boats and stuff going by in the background and there's a bridge over there just so you might not be alarmed people get scared out there
when they hear noises that they don't know what they are because they sometimes think we're on a green screen but they gather point about crilly and all these other p.f. i companies are also getting whacked their shares are tumbling the government is actually looking at their balance sheets and seeing what's going on there one issue that arose with karelian as the share company's revenues were crashing they were having to borrow more and more short term money and what did you say these are private these are public projects the government of the united kingdom can borrow at all times four hundred fifty year lows can private companies know here's a tweet from joel benjamin karelian was trying to turn itself around while being charged a rate of interest of eight to. ten percent above libel or for its emergency loans this is why private companies should not deliver core services for chip will a rated government able to borrow
a point five percent madness of course you know the taxpayer was always on the hook for that ten eight to ten percent above life or that banks were right but let's take a look at this the genesis of this this was a way for the u.k. government i believe it started under. major john major and debt off the government's balance sheet and to put her on the private sector to make the debt to g.d.p. ratio look healthier thus allowing the government to borrow more and of course this was a recipe for disaster it created moral hazard on an epic scale and guaranteed to collapse as it has collapsed and yes the entire sucher this entire p.f. i stutter is collapsing will the bank of england bail them out probably and again this is why people kind of rush to pick coin and gold because you can't prove either of those well whether or not the bank of england bails them out is one thing they obviously have not stepped in the company is liquidation its collapse many of
the biggest banks in the united kingdom are owed money over two billion pounds we don't know we're going to it's you know obviously what what was the warren buffett called these derivatives he called it like a speed get a you never and you never find the end of it well here. it'll obviously be in bankruptcy for quite a while who have to figure out what's what they actually own but one of the things that a lot of these companies do is they get the contracts they got these contracts by basically underpricing them to get it over you know be awarded the contract over the competition they couldn't deliver at the price but they had already flipped it they a lot of these companies flip it to foreign holders and offshore entities and wall street points out that karelian was one of four comp. the other three being balfour beatty interservice and cheer there pocketed over three hundred million pounds flipping p.f. i schools and hospitals to the highest bidder and other words many of karelians
p.f. i assets are already in the hands of foreign investors meaning that while the government will have to take over many of the services karelian can no longer provide and may still have to pay leasing cost to the foreign owned firms that currently and sold out to otherwise those firms may sue the government for a lost profits this is a remarkable chain of events because you have u.k. companies are going to be privatized because the private sector is more efficient so they take it out of the hands of the government and then these assets end up in the funds of public pension funds or foreign governments to pay and interest income to foreigners supplied by u.k. citizens so it's a transplant of state assets with reliable income out of the u.k. to foreign governments you know we you and i have pointed out that these p.f. ideals have been very expensive to the u.k. taxpayer and on this bit for this headline then we're going to go on to another
headline relating to this but for this headline with wall street dot com this is all happening at the chew cost of p s i is becoming apparent in april twenty seventeen a bombshell report by the national audit office warned that the price tag for paying five firms would reach eight point six billion pounds in twenty eighteen alone in total taxpayers oh a mind watering one hundred twenty one point four billion pounds on public projects that are worth just fifty two point nine billion pounds and the compound interest continues to grow i mean it's not a direct bailout in terms of ok the company went bankrupt and it's going under people losing their jobs pensions are being destroyed and the government stopped bailing them out at this hour but a lot of that debt will end up on the balance sheet of the bank of england they buy all. toxic debt and then they'll say there's no inflation so it keep interest rates ultra low which means no income for wages and no income for savers so it is a stealth bail out always a stealth fell out they'll keep printing printing printing parts and printing the
value for money continues to press against that point so now we're going to move on to the next headline about this and it's very very british i think it's good to end on this very british headline karelians highly inappropriate pay packets criticize the main lobby group representing u.k. bosses has savaged the highly inappropriate pay packets awarded to directors running the now collapsed construction dying karoly on the institute of directors also accuse directors and shareholders of the stricken firm of failing to provide appropriate oversight of the company which is involved in a host of major government projects and vital public services and slumps into compulsory liquidation so roger barker head of corporate governance at the institute of directors says it's highly inappropriate that these men wear warranted these massive bonuses throughout the basically collapse of this company they also a year ago did basically change their own governance structure whereby their
bonuses are not subject to claw back specifically they removed if the company collapses well the problem is and i've said this before the british character views that type of fraud as quote unquote clever ninety nine percent of the british population have president of the fact that they've had their wallet stolen and beaten about the head by fraudsters will say they're so clever how do i get into. how do i steal money like this right they don't see this as a shortcoming they see this as the british character is right up there with bar might have bulldog's itself so there's no outrage against it because there would be an outrage against the queen and the flag first of all the second of all they're going to have an inquiry to decide whether or not to have an inquest whether to form a committee whether to explore the past. ability if in fact there needs to be a discussion about possibly prosecuting the alleged crime and that will go on for seven or eight years the statute of limitations expire and the clever robbers will
you know run away and i want to say bravo. your clever little things we love you because you're so british you want to put the marmite uppers french frying a spring like a canary because you're a fricken idiot. ok well again i'm going to read you this on the home quotes because it's quite important to understand the. you know the scale of what it has been don. and how. you know the language is and how get out clauses are already in there so this guy roger barker he's the head of corporate governance at the institute of directors said that the collapse of the company suggests that effective governance was lacking at corralling them yeah that we must now consider if the board and shareholders have exercised appropriate oversight prior to the collapse i want to make a point about this is that the share price has been falling steadily since twenty fifteen and then it really started to crash in two thousand and sixteen and plunge
this summer so who is short that's the whole time who is making money the whole time i guess max tell me who george just more no no no it was hedge funds hedge funds or shorting this they figured it out they knew it despite hedge funds shorting wildly it was the the most the most shorted stock in all of europe ok so how did the government not know how did in that condition the government continued to give them billions of pounds of new contracts because they're corrupt because it's a constitutional monarchy where there are no citizens there are only subjects of the crown and they wanted this to del boy economy you know member the show fools who are fools who are only whores only fools and horses only fools and horses where the that the hero is a schemer you know this is just on an epic multi-billion dollar skill that's the national character. that's churchill yes churchill was
a skilled schemer you know how easy easy easy is this awful guy and they make these great movies about him but he's a kleptocrat. well that's it for this half of that price report stay tuned for the second half a lot more yes stay tuned for the second half much more. than kentucky. boys you've already agreed. to. a coup money city with the most new coal mines left. the jobs are gone all the ones that said. that it was love to see these people a survivor.
