the strongest appeal. so wednesday's morning headlines tearing the country and a half hours for donald trump to find the. trial in its 1st day in the senate proceeding looks set to deepen u.s. divides then after the emotionally charged debate. they tell us that we have to have this impeachment trial such as it is to bring about unity but they don't want unity and they know this so-called trial will tear the country in half. of the raft of conservative voices breaking its rules not to mention fraud in november's u.s. election we'll tell you about the. protests broke out across france calling for tougher laws protecting children as the country's top court hears the case of a 13 year old girl who was allegedly raped by 25 fight.
good morning from moscow this 10th of february watching our team with me having our 1st than impeaching a former president is constitutional rules the u.s. senate on the 1st day of the 2nd trial there however his legal team wants the proceedings may push the nation to the brink of civil war but listening. well it's a very serious situation on capitol hill where we've got an impeachment trial underway donald trump's lawyers they call it absurd and unconstitutional meanwhile we've got the prosecution saying this is the comeuppance for treacherous donald trump and the backdrop for all of this is a country that is deeply deeply divided take a listen they tell us that we have to have this impeachment trial such as it is to bring about unity but they don't want unity and they know this so-called trial will
tear the country in half leaving tens of millions of americans feeling left out of the nation's agenda. as dictated by one political party that now holds the power in the white house and in our national legislature this trial will tear this country apart perhaps like we have only seen once before in our history now the charge against donald trump in the impeachment proceedings is inciting in surat action and they are arguing that under the 14th amendment of the us constitution trump is ineligible for office because he engaged in inciting insurrection and this follows from the events of january 6th we've heard testimony from what happened at this point people are recapping of the situation where there were 5 deaths there were many injuries on capitol hill as trump supporters stormed in and penetrated the u.s. capitol congressional staffers were very afraid for their lives there was violence
that unfolded and all of this has got the prosecution at the impeachment trial appealing to people's emotions if that's not an impeachable offense then there is no such thing what our country experienced that day. is the framers worst nightmare come to life as one senator said they could have killed all of us with this trial you will open up new and bigger wounds across the nation we are really here because the majority in the house of representatives does not want to face donald trump as our political rival in the future. this cannot be the future of america. we cannot have presidents inciting and mobilizing mob violence against our government and our institutions but constitution is a document designed to protect the rights of the minority not the rights of the majority and i told my daughter tabitha. or
told her how sorry i was and i promised her that it would not be like this again the next time she came back to the capitol with me. and you know what she said. she said dad. i don't want to come back because. if you're looking on it seems like a rather theatrical and strange performance you've got the recitation of poetry you've got witnesses crying and breaking down into tears you've got the waving around of mao tse tung's little red book in order to make political points it's all very theatrical very explosive meanwhile all across the country millions of americans remain quite divided in the aftermath of an election they seem to be watching with lots of anger gun sales are up throughout the united states here's some of what we've heard from americans if you keep heading down the same way. they're going to push people into another civil war i'm very worried about this
country where it's going. it's a bad thing he's out of office we'll be sure peace is for to remove him from office he's already been removed he could get worse and it seems like every day we do good work that's not good for this conflict country the size the start going on and democrats oh you know. i don't want to be the victim you know like honestly i never thought about that have meaning to a lot of those stories some point there will be a final vote on whether or not donald trump is indeed convicted regardless of the outcome donald trump has certainly made history he's the only president in u.s. history to have been impeached on 2 different occasions so quite dramatic goings on we've got the military all over washington d.c. we've got the country watching on television we've got a lot of division 74000000 americans voted for trump despite a pretty solid number boating against him impeachment proceedings continue even
though donald trump has left office already and is not the president the impeachment vote marches on words. well there's a heavy security presence around the capitol building where those hearings are taking place the areas sealed off by 2.5 meter fence the national guard troops from patrol there is part of a major security operation that's been running since the storming of the capital by transporters by conjuring the 6 the pentagon says the troops are going to stay there too until at least march of the entire operation will cost almost half a 1000000000 dollars. a senior advisor for the 2016 trump presidential campaign told us though the democrats have put so much energy into the process trial was inevitable. well i think it's also understand it which i think most americans really want is that it is political theater it's a political trial it's not a criminal trial and so this is this is about the politics of the individual they have in front of them which is happens to be the former president of united since
we're here because the lens is clearly political which is we don't like donald trump and we don't like what he did we don't like what he said while the president probably was in artful and should probably not have said some things instead it doesn't really rise. to the incitement of violence the democrats are claiming this is this is all about whether or not the majority party which has never really liked donald trump as we can all admit to that there's not any democrat that's going to come out and say i liked donald trump in the top administration so there's a lot that they need to. pack through this hearing but i do think it might actually lead to a try all only because they've spent this much time and energy and effort and publicity and propaganda so if you're going to go to
a trial that like with the american public through this one we already know the outcome is going to be that he doesn't get impeached. is stepping up its crackdown on conservative commentators accused of spreading false information about the us electoral process to the latest examples of the jumo hold on to the website gateway pundit and radio host wayne allen root now they've both been blocked by twitter for what he called repeated violations of civic integrity policy they fell foul of the platforms rules by promoting donald trump's claim that the november election was marred by fraud since the still be the u.s. capitol last month which is more than $70000.00 accounts for similar reasons including that of the former president of course we spoke with wayne allen root about his bad he told us soul to the voices of being silenced it is for you. this is a joe mccarthy which prides against conservative voices they're tried to eliminate
dissent they're trying to eliminate diversity while they talk all day about diversity if you're black it's great if you're let's you know it's great if you're gay it's great if you're a woman it's great if you're transsexual it's great god forbid in the united states of america you'd be a chav list they want to destroy your light and silence you censor you ban you burn your books this is the irony you know the big hero of liberals all the liberal activists is sol inskeep he wrote a book called rules for radicals and he always said look at that mera whatever you see blame the other guy democrats have spent 50 years attack joe mccarthy for which shines now they're very good ads i don't even know why i was suspended if you showed me the tweet i do will of bet you that 74000000 americans that voted for trump agree with every word of my tweet how do you ban someone's at the unions when 74000000 people who have the waters agree with them as you mentioned the founder of the gateway pundit was also bound by the social media john talk to his site posted
this video to him hold claims it shows that the livery of absentee ballots at a polling station in detroit several hours after the deadline and passed by pundits also promising to release more such videos in the coming days to. u.s. election officials have said there's no evidence of significant folding time in the 2020 presidential vote which they called the most secure in the country's history but jim hoffa of the kate way pundit thinks there's no justification for shutting out those who disagree with up though. twitter does not want is to release any more of this information they're citing us as spreading and violating their ethics clause that they just put in where he cannot challenge anything about the 20 twentieth's action and yet there are still individuals who are challenging the 2016 election that still allowed on twitter there are so secure with their position why are they cracking down and eliminating eliminating. sites like myself from the
social media platforms it doesn't make sense and this is what we've fought against for several months now. subsetting a paris court sent to rule wednesday on the case of a french girl allegedly raped by 25 fight is the case has sparked protests across the country with demonstrators to run the legal changes to introduce a minimum age of consent and secure reports. on wednesday this court is going to be center stage for a case that's provoked outrage here in france involves a woman known as julie who says she was raped by 20 firefighters between the ages of 13 and 15. it all began when julie not real name had been assisted by a firefighter following a severe anxiety seizure at 13 in 2008 now it's claimed he obtained her number for medical records and then grew before asking her to undress via webcam it's then
claimed he passed it details on to other firefighters who did the same now in 2009 it's alleged a firefighter then raped julie says she was later taken to an apartment where she was gang raped in 2010 julie disclosed what it happened to her mother and a complaint was filed 3 firefighters were placed under investigation but no action was taken against another 17 men also accused 2 of the men have admitted that they had sex with julie whilst on duty and whilst wearing their uniforms a 3rd admitted a sexual act in a toilet cubicle in a prison hospital where julie had been admitted in march 20th definite judge was appointed to investigate but after 8 years the rape charges were dropped instead it was replaced by consensual penetrative sex with a minor under 15 this means the maximum sentence that they could receive is 7 years
compared with 20 for rape. who were $25.00 partners so the corrosion the service when we're talking about a 30 year old child justice system unable to realize that we're not in a fair balance of power and that when julie was raised by 20 firefighters she was raped under duress and she couldn't consent she couldn't accept the rape since she was a child that outcome is said to have hit julie hard. and she attempted to take her own life her family though is determined to keep fighting julie's mother is still gulps marked by that decision. the facts are simple julie was 1314 and 15 at the time she was in a very vulnerable state taking medication and trying to kill herself and 20 firefighters came to her all of them admit that they performed a sexual act on her with penetration and yet in france in the 21st century the court decides that this innocent julie's case has caused consternation in france.
for almost a decade we have trusted the justice system to make its ruling the court of appeals ruled that the fire rapists were justified given the success they enjoy with women moreover they stated verbal and in writing that the firefighters should be exonerated quote given the rampant sexual interest shown and by women campaigners hope that the decision reached this court will lead to an age of sexual consent being in troy and in french law calls for a minimum age of consent have been cruising in recent years and in january the senate but a bill to make the age of consent 13 but child protection associations say that that is insufficient charlotte even ski r.t. paris. euro m.p.'s have clashed over a motion backed by 50 lawmakers to force out the top diplomat of bahrain of being
too soft on russia and during his recent visit here is our europe correspondent peter all over. bilson za of m e p's had signed a letter calling for high representative for foreign 'd affairs basically the e.u.'s foreign minister yossi burrell to stand down from his post following this trip to moscow they accuse him of being too weak when it comes to dealing with russia guess that bell had gotten there with the intention of pressuring moscow for the release of alexei no vallone what it would have dealt with who is the current situation that we find ourselves in you know sipper ellis said he's got no intention of quitting his post we've also heard from his boss as well as the honda lion the e.u. commission president she said she's going to stand by her man and has no intention of sacking him saying the high representative has her full support now this plenary session that was held in the european parliament on tuesday was quite
a heated affair there was a lot of voices calling for the head of mr burrell certainly some scathing criticism of his trip to moscow and a lot of criticism for russia in general as well moscow the busa the visit of high representative bordello to you millie 8 and a friend the european union they just oversleep can't help but shoot. towards western representatives if you are ill executed a visit you know not only a shame to european citizens you also helps food chain and harms dressin people who are ill and the on the other hand made a fool of himself last week he must go by his actions he made a mockery of the ambition of the e.u. to play a major role in the world state wake up call that finally prompted you member states and yourself to to adopt a more realistic and principled russian foreign policy and to move toward sanctions
finally among others inclusion of human rights under sanctions least and to suspension stream to. which is contrary to european and if you security policy it's certainly got spicier timeline but there were some voices in the european parliament saying that it would be written all you needed to change their attitude when it comes to dealing with russia imus happy as anybody else to stand out for anybody's rights including new found nice but let's be honest of banks and he's officious and see immigrants racist on maybe 4 percent of the supports and we wouldn't be discussing him us all if he'd been arrested anywhere outside or they're down in russia and the catalan leaders have been sentence from 9 to 13 years in prison for our nation our friend um we have a warning that the double standard applied by do you undermine its global credibility as a defender of freedoms do you cannot go around the world recruit mending.
that does not apply to chelsea while joseph burrell was in moscow for those talks he held with sergey lavrov the russian foreign minister he described the atmosphere is a trusting war certainly our elations are on c.v.s. tree. and nobody cages lowballing canal operation. but. we are connected not only by geography. but put out wide range of the story call called little that have an economic time but as soon as he arrived back in brussels there was a different statement coming out says yes it barrelled said that as far as he was concerned moscow had no intention of trying to improve relations with the european union well that prompted the russian foreign ministry spokeswoman various account of a to suggest that it had been an attempt for a public whipping of russia where do we stand after all of this certainly
a lot of m e p's deeply owned happy with the high representative for foreign affairs he says he's not going to quit his boss the e.u. commission president says she's not going to sack him so for now at least he's going nowhere. for austrian foreign minister curran commercial told us efforts by some to ratchet up tensions with russia serve no one's interests. pushed out via such an action that will put a dangerous precedent out and you never know whether there will be some changes inside the commission from what i cannot saw from the trial the way. they always will it is not true well in the commission but that has little to do with miss the reds was it to moscow depth has much more to do with the failure in their distribution of make sense of 24 teams will have passed the 7 years now we have
seen a decrease deshaun of our relations. and there are many issues that have to be tackled and sometimes you can disconnect the one issue from the adaptations you shouldn't. kind of create it will cool on the old to send topics and down a. certain urgency to. reap till some sort of trust and and not go into confrontation. campaigners are demanding answers from u.k. police over the death of a black man the day after his arrest marty shuddered was dashed to spoke to his family about the case you might let me know. he was he was always known. will lead by my actual going with you all are concerned i mean you know he was you know i don't hold
firmly and he asked me at the whole now why 24 year old mohammed mohammed has and was arrested at home in cardiff on friday the 8th of january he was suspected of breaching the peace but was released early the next morning without charge then after arriving back at his house in newport rhode he passed away in his sleep his family and lawyers allege it was due to serious injuries from the time spent in custody why did he die. it died because of you know because of bill who was the injuries they are all we know. you know he look you know that way and he went home to rat me when i woke up again not to. go on how are following mohammed's death hundreds took part in protests over successive nights in cardiff they demanded the
release of c.c.t.v. and party of on footage from offices at cardiff bay police station many health black lives matter banas and compare the case to that of george floyd the 46 year old black man killed while being arrested in minneapolis in the usa back in may he came out with bruises are and cuts to his body and to his face this is a death of a young healthy lack who was arrested by the police during his detention he came into contact with 52 police officers and within hours he died it is absolutely right so it should be good in the same context as george floyd this is not unusual in black communities the forces say that early findings indicate no misconduct issues and no excessive force but have referred themselves to the independent office for police conduct as part of an investigation c.c.t.v.
and body one video has already been and will continue to be examined this will assist in establishing an understanding the events that took place early findings by the force indicate no misconduct issues and no excessive force we are aware of the extensive reporting on social media but due to the ongoing investigation referral we are unable to comment any further at this stage one month on the questions surrounding mohammed stethem remain unanswered. the trust between the police and the community appears to be at an all time low the official report when it comes could change all of that but until then this family's campaign for justice continues shadi edwards dashti r.t. u.k. . well as we've been reporting brazil is one of the countries hardest hit by the pandemic at the moment the amazonian region of the north's among the worst affected their medical staff in the capital a grappling with severe shortages of oxygen still for code patients with volunteers
trying to fill the void. it really does seem we cannot continue to live in the scats like a new war but we don't see the enemy this is the virus there are not enough beds in the hospitals many people are being treated at home and this is a big problem i have many friends who suffer from a lack of oxygen every day were received so many messages from people asking how and where talk to oxygen. you know me. at the beginning the goal of all complain was to collect water and supplies for the hospitals but suddenly we have to change our goal and collect
money to buy oxygen because there was a lack of it in our state but most important is that many people started to help famous people artists football players where doing all we can to support the people in need. you have a case a video i think the local and national government should work in a preemptive way and not only when we start to face cancer with so many people dying they should have acted earlier and not only now when this situation is so difficult for. each year goes on and on there's no better times can't come soon enough to let. your days go to roy so far as roughly what we're talking about here this wednesday morning check it out so you don't coincide so my. small
