i think there is some chance for a doctor over abusing his prospects for reelection although malt very chances for that you're absolutely right you know. even when the crime is obvious the experience of previous impeachments in the united states which were to actually shows that even in these situations it is unlikely to be resulted into the real impeachment because the senate nor the calls are representatives of the sides and there is the republican majority in the sound of and what is most important donald trump is supported by a bald 90 percent of the republican electorate so i think no one from serious republican politicians would dare in these circumstances to vote against the president however of course the by the way thing the launch of the impeachment procedure is already the recognition of high chances for donald trump
to be reelected democrats understand that it is very difficult for them to be traum you you wrote recently had that allegations against a much weaker than even those put forth against bill clinton back in 1900 why do you think the democrats are taking their risk because it involves one of their own every time dimension in pitch when bayh imply joseph by then in their rather yes you know unflattering situation well for 2 reasons i think reason number one that the son of despair because indeed it is difficult for the democrats to be trumped in the current conditions they are looking for basically it every plainsman 2 of the miller investigation miller of this to gauge and failed to prove them and they now looking for the other ways to steal accused trump of some crimes not just delusional with ukraine. and then the forceful you know intervention of ukraine
into american domestic elections but also something something else they need these sorts of investigations you know to pressure secondly this is an attempt by the democrats to charm the discords a bold biden sort of all in. domestic politics and biden score option this is to ration is very risky for the democrats i mean this forcible investigation of biden sort of old warped world the russian now as for world world the reasons for biden's demands to get out of the former ukrainian general prosecutor so they want to change you know their retreat from the investigation of by them to the investigation of the op i also heard one russian expert voice a very counter intuitive hypothesis that i want to run by you he suggested that by launching the impeachment proceedings the democrats in the congress are trying to
undermine not so much trying but there's a by himself and the establishment wing of the democratic party which as we all remember played saw what dirty against the socialist the wing party in the run up to the 2016 presidential elections by openly disfavoring bernie sanders defined it clause of bill well i think so there is no unanimity within the democratic camp by the way this overall investigation and the scandal related to the u.s. role in the ukrainian domestic politics might sort a little salt into. biden's defeat in the primaries them one of the most possible winners of the democratic campaign will be bertha saunders or perhaps it is a bit more and more absolute the elizabeth warren which will be greater health of development i would say for the democratic party because indeed the the pros.
democratic establishment ease the problem of the democratic party these still low was donald trump time and again to claim that the additional elite. it represented by he will recall in the jaws of by them they want to reveal who wants to people's votes and basically live the good more people's discomfort them and tired of the new liberal. so i think it will be healthy to live for the democratic party if someone else once the. primaries on that will be then the very interesting final election in november of next year you also suggested the 2020 elections may be the dirtiest and the fiercest elections in american recent history and love like their opponents how flayed fairly and till now i mean we have seen a number of methods being used against donald trump. sabotage open ended investigation now the impeachment proceedings any other tricks that he's opponents
have been to use so far apart from physical harm and plain assassination impeachment is already i would say the huge wolf weapons of mass destruction in american domestic politics because that's the final instrument that you can use against the acting president and i think that indeed the elections will be most. in the recent american history because the stakes are incredibly high for both sides for donald trump this stake is not just implementation of his domestic politics but actually avoiding prison and avoiding the direct groom in the trial because most probably the democrats would want to put him to trial if he's more longer the president of the united also for charges of the charges or for instance preventing you know justice during the meal or in this the geisha remember robert moore when he. he gave his the results of his investigation he said the only reason
why the charge of all of. the investigation was not due to gains normal trump is because he was the acting president of the overseas airport doesn't contain any so who had the evidence of a parent trying to track them in whatever they can come out of it without if they can do that here is you know the democrats want revenge the democrats wants to depict trump as a temporary aberration they want you know to come in just. above him and it is easier to do it over a private citizen than the president of the united states or fort drum the stake is his personal freedom after all now democrats for the democrats the stake is voiding even deeper crisis of the party in basically the survival of the traditional elite it's the problem of survival for both sides because if prompt
once for the 2nd time it will be no longer possible for the traditional leads to clean the problem is that the emperor who became president as a result of the intervention of an alien for him for income for in the country they will have to accept the nature all sense of discontent in the american society and all the problems that have been ignored for many years and actually which brought donald trump into the white house now you mention there were the words survival several times and historically they have been more than 30 attempts to kill an incumbent of former president 4 of them resulted in in the killing of the acting head of state all of them were politically motivated without the entering too much into the reality of conspiracy theories do you think that method of doing politics is fully relegated to history or let's say foreign policy because i mean it we know that american intelligence agencies have conducted a couple of assess a nation at times. including
a relatively recent history but the massacre well my assumption is that the scenario is quite plausible. i can't i don't claim that there is a very big risk of donald trump to be assessed and they eat it but we shouldn't exclude that because american security services american counterintelligence and intelligence also waging war against donald trump right then this whistle blower who made this pleat against the acting president you know the. the resistance of the deep state within the trump administration that it's all proofs the drums campaign this struggle is not just between trump and democrats it's also between trump and the traditional establishment which is represented also and primarily by the security services by the bureaucrats they are using different methods to undermine the president from the altar rights. to these.
investigations which basically nearest media leaks there is certainly a positive vibe about every you know coming out of religious sorts of media leaks eve all these methods become in effect of even they even that all these scandals the minds of jewels of by them all the normal trump which i think will be the case i won't excludes that the eventually some more extreme versions of political straw go instruments of political struggle will be utilized while mr before we are accused of being conspiracy theorists let's take a very short break we'll be back in just a few moments statement. ragon
for from what i know comes out of a war hero of the set up one among what i would. a file after the main t.v. they tell you not the high i might and i mean. that this month when the sun shone. from totally. shut the lock of the. didn't even then that it is someone who did abort an. didn't. didn't. join me every 1st day on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to us of the world of politics sports business i'm show
business i'll see you then. why a paradise with so much all year round turned into a round the experimentation field the agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments that often in day you have many of these people one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political.
welcome back to worlds apart with me to the source live deputy director of the center for comprehensive european and international studies at the higher school of economics in moscow before the break we started talking about impeachment which the impeachment proceedings which already prompted the 1st high profile resignation i'm talking about volcker you know used to direct the american policy in the ukraine and there are some signs that he was also directing the ukrainian politics in america how big of a deal is that well for us to identify and manifest the depth of the scandal he's already accused stores putting pressure against the ukrainian authorities and also he wants to emphasize the he has nothing to do with this pressure actually he
personally and politically believed in the necessity of supporting ukraine against russia or. does he does not want to be associated with prompts a retiree. or force putting pressure on ukraine secondly apparently claiming that russia is more important than ukraine and there's in this sort of you going to restore the united states to get along with russia or as you green is an obstacle so this goes against the political views of walker imperiously but i wonder if it's just the matter of him disagreeing with the president because the same unidentified whistleblower complained about your. interactions with the ukrainian president he suggested that mr volcker was often acting not on the instructions of donald trump or secretary of state mike brown pair his direct boss but at the request of the ukrainian. for example the close aide to president
selenski on the mock given how easily accusations of treason fly in washington does he have her reason to be concerned about the ethics of his own behavior rather than his association with donald trump the legal view point of course is yes and what you just described is again proves my thesis that there is a very strong resistance among american but all proceed against the policies of the president and they apparently sabotage and could have walker was largely involved in this sub adarsh by pursuing not only not donald trump's presidency visit the ukraine. which volcker can see the right and which reflected the interests of certain ukrainian politicians you know ukraine in this current stage from the political perspective for you think volcker will be protected by the by the
democrats by their establishment republicans which still exist because for them ukraine is the friend everyone who supports ukraine is also a friend. of the right. i think volcker will not be accused right walter will be used as an instrument against donald trump it's interesting you say that because i mean they conflict compare this situation to something that happened to for example general flynn who was a man who was decimated politically for simply appearing at artie's dinner and sitting at one table with live near put it out even exchanging any any war it's imagine him being involved in trying to arrange meetings with u.s. presidents associates all be have of president bush and i mean he would have been in prison till the end of his days were over the whole russia gate was artificial from the very beginning. it was
a huge huge hypocrisy from the very beginning because lots there is lots of foreign intervention into american domestic politics you know take easily and it's legalized i mean it is and this is legalized last thing let it go all being absolutely again they could easily look at these rail loophole in the american domestic and foreign policy is right no well 1st russia is considered as adversarial pollo secondly the fight is not even 1st and foremost about russia it's against donald trump because the presidency of donald trump undermines the supremest to the rule of the additional establishment elite in american politics now while walker is departure at least the trumpet ministration pretty much without any senior official with the expertise in these part of the world i mean fiona hill codes. john bolton they are all god the
united states still has no on baster in ukraine and the american ambassador to russia is said to resign within the next couple of days in october 3rd. how do you take it does russia have reason to be concerned about these brain drain when it comes to u.s. policy in ukraine. on the one him the departure of volcker could have played a positive role because indeed from the russian perspective the role of all code was apparently negative right walker prevent the implementation of the means good and persuaded ukraine to continue to subsidize the implementation on the other camp in the current situation of scandal i truly don't believe that the departure of walter will matter for the american pull we see towards ukraine because there is no policy in conditions of the current scandal impeachment investigation the american policy towards ukraine will be paralyzed it will be ultimate. dependent on the
believe it go domestic political interplay all the hue towards the impeachment in these conditions there is nothing that washington can or would want to do viz of ukraine i think the white house will try its best you know to be in that cell from the ukraine the i'm go in general you know the the absence of the interlocutor will change the situation to read the rest are going to celebrate it you know what was the you know for this into the locus or to be implemented but as it comes to russia well you're absolutely right the well 1st the role of domestic politics in american foreign policy is a problem for us russian relations and for international security absence of experts. negotiators experienced negotiators on control on some of the issues is a problem of course for for us russian relations in this situation we well we have
to strengthen the mechanisms of communication where still experts exist so what they are what i'm talking about we need to strengthen mil to mil negotiations. i think there is no actually very disease left they are absolutely in the pentagon yes i mean we haven't seen multiple departures from the pentagon general gerar some of and general dunford they need on a regular basis primarily discussing syria we need to multiply and broaden the spectrum of the discussion from just syria to our the flanks of us of us russian revolution speaking off which over the last couple of months has made several russia friendly statements he offered to bring moscow back to the 7 than during his meeting with the landscape he suggested that the russian ukraine with quote solve that problem together which i think. that meaning or ukraine.
all of us that seems a little bit less constrained on our on the russia track how far could it go well unfortunately the spog of ukraine gate limits and the potential for trump's positive steps and policy toward small scale you know from the very beginning donald trump did not consider russia as a natural enemy of the united states he has a strategic vision which is that china is the arrival in the major competitor and for basically of the united states not russia donald trump understands that it is quite difficult for the united states to successfully come this policy of dual containment of these 2 great powers so he would want basically to improve relations with russia as the secondary great power in
comparison to china in his opinion in order to a little bit diminish and reduce the intensity of russian cheney's relations and thus simplify the primer objective for the u.s. strategy campaign went off of china and of course he regards the ukraine call flicked as an obstacle. trump was absolutely sincere when he said that russia and ukraine should resolve that issue and ukraine should take more initiative in resulting in resolving that you should because that will allow some reparation while with. the u.s. why did the almost from do with them because of the end of the ruler investigation right he's died were completely it his cancer were completely died when the miller investigation was going on so he can see the end of that investigation and allow some greater freedom of maneuver for finally to implement the policies that he wanted to implement from the very beginning however we. of the new scandal right we
have the impeachment investigation income in the impeachment investigation again shows russia as the enemy earlier this year you gave interesting talk at the center for strategic and international studies in washington in which he talked about russia u.s. tensions as a new cold war which has existential significance for both sides and which cannot be resolved through a compromise he suggested that it would only add to with one of the sides reconsidering its role in the world. what do you think it's going to be well i hope that it will be the u.s. transformation the transformation of the u.s. foreign policy which in my understanding is already on the fold it started with the obama administration donald trump continues that with the other means but there's also the reconsideration of the u.s. role in the world i would refer you to the leader's speech that donald trump gave in the u.n. general assembly right it's the manifesto of this new approach well i think that
the major challenge the do night is states faces is that the u.s. led attacks a historical experience of equal coexistence with other great powers in the multipolar world while staying while staying integrated into the international order the american experience is either isolationism or global leadership now none of these options are acceptable in the united states should learn for the 1st time in the hugh story how to call manage international orders with other great powers ease impossible to roll the letter at the back so the us must and it does the way that trying in a very painful and contradictory way but the u.s. is a liberated you know lauralee despite its will but learning this practice of coal management of the world with in conditions of polarity and very quickly if i may you also suggested in that speech that the. russia's 2024 problem which is the problem of
the issue of power transition. to his successor also very much depends on their cuteness of tensions with the united states how come how is it possible i mean moscow is so proud of its sovereignty and yet you're suggesting that the most consequential decision of a generation of will ultimately depend on its relationship with washington well i think the international context and the u.s. russian relations is one of the most important elements of this international context made a huge impact on the russian domestic evolution the historical mission i think of law the middle portion is not just to make russia a great power again but also to make it illegitimate a great power right to compel the other powers to recognize russia and the except russia as a legitimate independent great power of global significance we are logged there we are in conditions of precisely the new called war do knighted states still try to
leverage the russia back into its strategic defeat into mind in mind this and do wants to transform russia both in terms of its foreign policy in the terms of its domestic politics these pressure of the u.s. the russian comes from the asian i think is is impacting the russian domestic development in the very strong way in the that it will be a more difficult you know for for russia to manage its transition in conditions of the new cold war with the united states if we have the acknowledgement by the united states by the west in general or in the role as the legitimate great power war i think the 22 into 4 transition would be much more smooth and easy and mornings while material have to live in there thank you very much for being with us today my pleasure and i encourage our viewers to keep this guy. versation going our
