biden the democratic frontrunner for next year's presidential election congressional committees will now start gathering evidence the inquiry could ultimately see trump the 45th u.s. president removed from office it was a long time coming. but nancy pelosi has finally made the announcement many in her party have been waiting for the actions of the trump presidency revealed dishonorable fact of the president's betrayal of his office betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections the president must be held accountable no one is above the law strong words from the speaker but why now a complaint about donald trump from a whistle blower has focused her attention it alleges that the president put pressure on ukraine to investigate former vice president joe biden and his son biden is one of the potential challengers to trump in the american presidential

12:04 pm
for donald trump's pietschmann have been dead for a while why did nancy pelosi decide to call for it now and i think for a long time there's been a strategic has a tense especially during the miller report which took a while just took months and i think it took part of the momentum out of the of the democratic campaign for impeachment plus there is a deep division within the democratic party where more progressive democrats are arguing for impeachment and the more perhaps pragmatic or more conservative wing is arguing against it for a long time that's a put those who was able to stave this off this kind of critique i think now is a moment where well maybe this is the this the straw that broke the camel's back and we're not supposed to just test respond but it impeaching a president is a long and complicated to see just some stand a 10 steps involved and as you said they've been divisions within the democrats
12:05 pm
over this issue there still divisions within the democrats and among voters is this a vis good move for the democrats given or if this is a risky move it's not seen as something that's very popular it's risky because of my backfire this is what has happened. in part with the bill clinton impeachment where clinton wasn't able or the democrats were able to take away the midterm elections after the impeachment trial it takes a while trump might not even be in office anymore when de impeachment trial goes to the senate or go through the senate so there is a risk involved on the other hand there's a risk involved if you don't act if the democrats do not acknowledge you would wonder at what point an impeachable offense is an impeachable offense and i think there's a risk or a thought that this could set a precedent and that the moment to act is now the end of the trump administration has been reluctant to provide documents a signal that subpoenas from congress why is that trump administration being supportive this time well the question is if it will be co-operative and if i think
12:06 pm
that's a very good question the report maybe was happening on a different scale the public limelight might be more intense for an impeachment trial so perhaps this adds this adds to the to the momentum at the same time if trump is portrayed the narrative the strong enough by democrats to put trey trump as somebody who's undermining democratic institutions that would feed this kind of narrative and i think this could increase the pressure that trump has read good many scams in the past for the befana tissues the things he said about women and who are dangerous issues and he's managed to shut them all off the distance could it be different it could be we don't know. many times experts have been wrong in his presidency i think in part that might be the fault of experts in part it's because trump seems to be a different type of president and the rules seem to be working differently and i think this is exactly what the democrats are trying to point out we should have
12:07 pm
rules that you know need to be applied for all presidents no matter who it is at certain moments in time. boris film and a professor of political science thank you very much for another says it's name and honor trump has been at the united nations made last out of iran and what he called it fanatical quest for nuclear weapons but during a speech at the u.n. general assembly he stopped short of urging any specific military action tensions have been going after the attack on assad the oil facilities which the west blames on the head on but iran rejects these accusations u.s. president donald trump has said all along he suspects the rand is behind the attack on saudi oil sites but at the u.n. he refrained from threatening military action opting instead to turn up economic pressure in response to iran's recent attack on saudi arabian oil facilities we
