President Trump has approved

the release of a memo,

0:00:100:00:12

thought to reveal bias on the part

of the FBI in its handling

0:00:120:00:15

of the inquiry in to alleged Russian

meddling in the US election.

0:00:150:00:23

And dramatic scenes in the US

courtroom where the trial of sex

0:00:230:00:26

abuser Larry Nassar continues.

0:00:260:00:34

Educated view of polar bears

struggling to survive on the

0:00:390:00:42

shrinking Arctic ice. -- a unique

view.

0:00:420:00:49

A controversial memo that accuses

DFB I BIA and justice department of

0:00:590:01:03

bias against US President Donald

Trump has been released. The

0:01:030:01:07

document suggests that the FBI and

the Department of Justice have shown

0:01:070:01:12

anti-Trump bias in the investigation

into alleged confusion with comp's

0:01:120:01:17

election campaign and Russia. The

President chose to release it and

0:01:170:01:19

has two is this to say to reporters.

I think it is terrible. It is a

0:01:190:01:25

disgrace what is going on. The memo

was sent to Congress, declassified,

0:01:250:01:32

Congress will do whatever they are

going to do. I think it is a

0:01:320:01:36

disgrace what is happening in our

country. When you look at that, and

0:01:360:01:39

you see that and some of the other

things that are going on, and a lot

0:01:390:01:44

of people should be ashamed of worse

than that. I sent it over to

0:01:440:01:49

Congress, they will do what they are

going to do, whatever they do is

0:01:490:01:53

fine. It was declassified. Let's see

what happens. A lot of people should

0:01:530:01:58

be ashamed.

John McCain has slammed

a Donald Trump's actions. He said,

0:01:580:02:05

our nation's elected officials,

including the President...

0:02:050:02:20

Jade O'Brien is in Washington. Just

explain where the releasing of this

0:02:250:02:30

memo put the investigation and all

these stories about Donald Trump and

0:02:300:02:33

allegations of involvement with

Russia?

I don't think it has any

0:02:330:02:38

effect on the so-called Robert

Mueller probe, the investigation

0:02:380:02:43

carried out by special counsel

Robert Mueller into whether or not

0:02:430:02:47

the Trump campaign colluded with

Russia and the level of Russian

0:02:470:02:52

interference. That investigation

continues. It will do so. What

0:02:520:02:58

Donald Trump and Republicans have

tried to do with this memo is raised

0:02:580:03:03

serious questions about the bias and

prejudices of senior Department of

0:03:030:03:10

Justice officials and senior FBI

officials in the methods that they

0:03:100:03:13

have used to conduct their

investigation. This particular memo

0:03:130:03:17

talks about an application for

surveillance on a member of Trump's

0:03:170:03:25

campaign team. It was about a

warrant that the guy wanted to carry

0:03:250:03:33

out surveillance, the allegation is

that they misused their powers in

0:03:330:03:37

obtaining that word. That they

relied on information from a dossier

0:03:370:03:42

that had been put together by a

former British spy who was being

0:03:420:03:46

paid for by the Democrats, and that

in using that information, knowing

0:03:460:03:50

that was the source, they showed

bias. The Democrats say that as an

0:03:500:03:58

incomplete picture, an inaccurate

picture, and there is far more to

0:03:580:04:00

this than a 3-page memo.

Let's go to

New York where former 21 year

0:04:000:04:07

veteran of the FBI joins us live.

What is your take of the releasing

0:04:070:04:13

of this memo?

It was expected

because as with President Trump

0:04:130:04:21

operates, but the content of the

memo was really not much of

0:04:210:04:24

anything. It was very lacklustre and

made no charges.

The allegation is

0:04:240:04:29

that the FBI misused their power in

a nonpartisan way. If that something

0:04:290:04:35

that is feasible in your view?

I

would say that the FBI, 21 years in

0:04:350:04:42

the FBI, and every agent has their

own political beliefs and religious

0:04:420:04:47

beliefs. But we've the FBI carry out

our job in a very nonpartisan

0:04:470:04:52

manner. The call of duty is to

because the cost of choosing and the

0:04:520:04:59

lovelorn. Having said that, do I

think that this is partisan? That

0:04:590:05:06

the FBI's in litigation is partisan?

No, I don't.

You have the never seen

0:05:060:05:12

anyone behave any partisan way, but

is it possible that someone could

0:05:120:05:15

have gone so, are there enough

checks and balances on every member

0:05:150:05:18

of the FBI, that they would have

done everything correctly in order

0:05:180:05:22

to make sure they had checked on the

boxes and they could not be seen to

0:05:220:05:26

be doing something wrong?

Yes. The

application is an odourless

0:05:260:05:35

application, this 4-page memo and

dudes that basically the entire

0:05:350:05:40

application was written based upon

one person's statements. The steel

0:05:400:05:46

.co. The application is going to

happen many facts that need to be

0:05:460:05:52

proven and documented. The dossier

may have been one of dozens or

0:05:520:06:00

hundreds of facts that needed to go

into that application.

Clearly there

0:06:000:06:04

is no love lost between President

Trump and many members of the

0:06:040:06:07

intelligence community. You think

this ongoing investigation and this

0:06:070:06:12

throwing mud in all directions as

they independently damage the FBI?

0:06:120:06:16

The FBI has been the target of

attacks in the past, and it will be

0:06:160:06:21

again. The FBI personnel are

professionals, they will continue to

0:06:210:06:27

do their jobs. That said, it is not

good and it does not help the FBI to

0:06:270:06:33

the general public when the

President of the United States is

0:06:330:06:36

attacking them. Their credibility,

trustworthiness, that is very

0:06:360:06:40

detrimental not just do the FBI but

in the American public.

Who to talk

0:06:400:06:44

to you, I give your thoughts. --

good to talk.

0:06:440:06:53

Chaotic scenes at a court in

Michigan as Larry Nassar has been

0:06:530:06:59

found guilty of 60 abusing girls in

his tale. Standing alongside his

0:06:590:07:02

three daughters who were preyed on

by the adults are, their father

0:07:020:07:05

asked for some time alone with Larry

Nassar.

I would ask you as part of

0:07:050:07:11

the sentencing to drag me five

minutes in a locked room with this

0:07:110:07:15

demon. Would you do that?

That is

not how our... No, sir, I cannot do

0:07:150:07:24

that. You know that I can't do that,

that is not how our legal system

0:07:240:07:29

works.

0:07:290:07:38

SHOUTING

0:07:380:07:44

The judge herself said that she of

the cannot understand the pain that

0:07:440:07:48

the barber was feeling, and I think

it is just worth pointing out that

0:07:480:07:54

he had three of his daughters

sexually assaulted by Larry Nassar,

0:07:540:08:00

two of them, Lauren and Madison,

spoke out today's hearing, and

0:08:000:08:05

Lauren, when she confronted Larry

Nassar said that her parents had to

0:08:050:08:09

live with what had happened to them,

as you said, it you cannot imagine

0:08:090:08:13

the guilt that they are living with.

Then we saw the father clearly

0:08:130:08:18

distraught, doing what I am sure

many of the families love this

0:08:180:08:24

sentencing hearing could only have

imagined wanting to do. You see the

0:08:240:08:29

father they are saying, to those pay

who took him down, just imagine if

0:08:290:08:36

this was due, a question that will

resonate with many people. We have

0:08:360:08:40

seen so many emotions flying high in

these hearings as the young women

0:08:400:08:44

bravely have confronted Larry Nassar

Collie and Satan himself, saying

0:08:440:08:49

they hope that he stays in prison

for ever, to think about what he has

0:08:490:08:53

done. Some even offering for giving

us to Larry Nassar, but I think this

0:08:530:08:58

moment with this barber so clearly

distraught, trying to take down the

0:08:580:09:04

man who violated his three young

daughters, was certainly remaining

0:09:040:09:08

people's my eyes when a think of

this case for ever.

0:09:080:09:13

Two weeks ago, 16 Syrians including

several children died trying to

0:09:130:09:17

travel across the mountains from

Syria into Lebanon. They used a

0:09:170:09:21

route used by thousands before them,

but were caught in an icy blizzards.

0:09:210:09:25

Only a due survived. Our Middle East

corresponded has been to beat one of

0:09:250:09:29

them, a three-year-old girl.

0:09:290:09:34

Meet little Sarah,

just three years old.

0:09:340:09:35

The black marks on her face

are caused by frostbite.

0:09:350:09:38

Smugglers abandoned

Sarah during a blizzard

0:09:380:09:39

as she was crossing the mountains

from the war in Syria

0:09:390:09:43

to join her dad.

0:09:430:09:44

She only survived as the man

who dumped her was forced

0:09:440:09:48

at gunpoint to go back and get her.

0:09:480:09:53

But Sarah's mum, big Sister

and granny all froze to death.

0:09:530:10:00

Now, in a Lebanese hospital, Sarah's

dad watches overheard day and night.

0:10:000:10:07

TRANSLATION:

I do my best to be

a mother and a father to Sarah.

0:10:070:10:10

I'll do everything I can

to help her get over this.

0:10:100:10:13

She's all I have now.

0:10:130:10:18

16 Syrians died trying

to reach safety that day.

0:10:180:10:22

For the rescuers, it was the worst

thing they'd ever seen.

0:10:220:10:24

But there is some good news.

0:10:240:10:30

A couple of days after first

meeting Sarah and her diet,

0:10:300:10:35

we went to see them again.

0:10:350:10:39

-- heard that.

0:10:390:10:41

-- heard that.

0:10:410:10:42

Sarah's had an operation

on her face.

0:10:420:10:44

She's got her appetite back.

0:10:440:10:47

The doctor says the

surgery was a success.

0:10:470:10:50

So you're hopeful there

won't be too much scarring?

0:10:500:10:52

Yes, yes, I hope.

0:10:520:10:56

That her face will be...?

0:10:560:10:58

Yes, will be normal,

like a normal baby.

0:10:580:11:02

Fantastic, it will looked normal?

0:11:020:11:02

Yes.

0:11:020:11:04

Sarah's dad captured her first

moment after the operation.

0:11:040:11:09

She's got a long way to go,

but she still smiling.

0:11:090:11:17

Hopes are fading that any more

survivors will be found after a

0:11:230:11:26

migrant boat capsized off the coast

of Libya. At least 90 people are

0:11:260:11:30

feared to have drowned. The body 's

ability and have been recovered so

0:11:300:11:33

far. There were just three no

survivors. A reporter is following

0:11:330:11:38

the story from Tunisia.

0:11:380:11:41

It capsized off the Libyan coast of

the world, and looking around really

0:11:410:11:47

see how these Calum Waters seem to

represent a risk that is worth

0:11:470:11:50

taking. Those on board included

Pakistanis as well as Libyans,

0:11:500:11:58

according to some of the survivors.

We do know that most of the migrants

0:11:580:12:03

that often take a journey from Libya

are often from sub-Saharan Africa.

0:12:030:12:07

This group of people represent

perhaps a shifting trend, according

0:12:070:12:14

to some observers in the region.

Even from where I am standing into

0:12:140:12:17

knee jerk, we're seeing a Martin

Klizan locals taking that journey

0:12:170:12:23

from their own country to southern

Europe. The political and economic

0:12:230:12:28

turmoil in the region, particularly

in Libya, is contributing to this.

0:12:280:12:32

We know that the EU strategy to curb

illegal migration from North Africa

0:12:320:12:37

to southern Europe is largely

focused on each additional groups

0:12:370:12:40

that make that journey. This

includes asylum seekers and refugees

0:12:400:12:44

from countries like Syria, Eritrea

and the Sudan, as well as economic

0:12:440:12:50

migrants that some believe make up

the largest portion of those who

0:12:500:12:54

make the crossing, from sub-Saharan

Africa. If there is a shift or a

0:12:540:12:58

potential shift in this trend,

Europe will have to rethink their

0:12:580:13:02

strategy. They are likely to be

watching the latest developments in

0:13:020:13:07

with some concern.

Around the world,

when you have is security, economic

0:13:070:13:14

problems, people feeling like they

do not have enough, they deftly do

0:13:140:13:16

not have enough to support their

families, there are not

0:13:160:13:20

opportunities at home, and you have

smugglers and armed groups and

0:13:200:13:23

criminal gangs who are able to sell

them an idea of what Europe is our

0:13:230:13:27

any destination country, then people

do feel compelled to go. If you like

0:13:270:13:32

they have no other option.

For

migrants, the central Mediterranean

0:13:320:13:36

route represents hope and the

prospect of death. For most who are

0:13:360:13:39

willing to attempt this dangerous

illegal crossing, the rest of

0:13:390:13:45

perishing and sea his mind they are

still willing to take.

0:13:450:13:52

In Calais, the north of France, for

Eritrea migrants are in critical

0:13:520:13:57

condition after clashes erupted with

Afghans. Rightly sapping deployed to

0:13:570:14:01

deal with what France's into the

minister says is an increase in

0:14:010:14:05

violence due to smuggling gangs.

Hundreds of migrants still sleep

rough around Calais any hope of

crossing the Channel to England.

0:14:090:14:15

The French authorities say a series

of fights broke out and Afghan and

0:14:150:14:19

Eritrea migrants yesterday. It is

not clear what sparked the classes

0:14:190:14:22

but clearly tensions have toiled

over among the hundreds who have

0:14:220:14:25

gathered in Calais in an attempt to

cross the Channel into the UK.

0:14:250:14:31

France's interior minister has

visited the scene near a food this

0:14:310:14:34

division centre. He said the area

had never seen such violence. He

0:14:340:14:39

urged the mag is not to come to the

area.

0:14:390:14:45

area. TRANSLATION:

We see that we

have reached a new level of violence

0:14:460:14:49

tonight. An escalation of violence

that has become completely

0:14:490:14:53

unbearable for the people of Calais,

and funny migrants. We can not allow

0:14:530:14:58

a sense of survival of the fittest

in our country, so we will do things

0:14:580:15:03

every way we can.

Extra riot police

have been set, and officers are

0:15:030:15:07

searching for an Afghan in his 30s

who is suspected of shooting some of

0:15:070:15:11

the injured. A local host Walker

says migrants are living in

who was smoking a cigarette inside,

while illegally transporting highly

flammable substances. The US economy

created more than 200,000 new jobs

in January, continuing a trend that

goes back to 2010. The largest gains

0:18:270:18:30

of interest in an investigation to

the death of his wife, the film star

Natalie Wood. She was found drowned

in 1981 during a California yachting

trip with Wagoner, and her death was

ruled to have been an accident.

ship is by Captain Dennis Taverne.

And remember people coming on about

saying that they had found Natalie

information emerged about the couple

that night. The captain now said he

0:19:230:19:26

had heard arguing.

0:19:260:19:31

had heard arguing. The

and believe

he was whether a puppet of the

0:19:310:19:34

management into the water. But back

in 2011 the case was reopened.

0:19:340:19:38

Evidence of bruising lead the cause

of death being changed to drowning

0:19:380:19:44

and other undetermined factors.

Recently we have received

0:19:440:19:47

information which we felt was

substantial, enough to makers take

0:19:470:19:51

another look this case.

And now

detectives say to more people have

0:19:510:19:56

come forward saying they also heard

raised voices on the night. One said

0:19:560:19:59

she got back

sought figures in the

back, a male and a female, whose

0:19:590:20:06

voices they recognised that a Robert

Wacker and Natalie Wood. Arguing in

0:20:060:20:10

the back of the boat.

Back in 2011,

the biker family issued a statement

0:20:100:20:15

saying it supported the police boss

's efforts, and the detectives at

0:20:150:20:18

the time had this to say about

Robert White now.

Is Robert Winder

0:20:180:20:24

is suspect was likely might know.

Just like six years on...

I think

0:20:240:20:28

the suspicious enough to make a

think that something happened. I

0:20:280:20:31

don't think she got in the water

herself, I don't think she fell into

0:20:310:20:35

the water. As we have investigated

the case over the last six and, at

0:20:350:20:38

the key is more of a person of

interest now. We know now that he

0:20:380:20:41

wanted last person to be with

Natalie before she disappeared.

0:20:410:20:45

Let's meet Robert Meitner. That's

like Robert Wagoner. But I'm not a

0:20:450:20:54

purse ditty-mac suspect, a person of

interest. Robert Winder has made no

0:20:540:20:57

comment.

37 years on, the story of

this golden Hollywood couple and the

0:20:570:21:03

investigation into the death of

Natalie Wood is still very much

0:21:030:21:07

ongoing.

0:21:070:21:12

Snoring in the cinema is normally

seen as quite rude, and you can

0:21:130:21:16

imagine having some next EU doing

that while you are trying to enjoy a

0:21:160:21:19

film. A visual artist from Thailand

is positively encouraging it. He has

0:21:190:21:24

created a sleep Cinema hotel. The

audience stay overnight in a

0:21:240:21:27

specially designed dormitory

featuring beds, hammocks, showers

0:21:270:21:30

and breakfast. It is all taking

place in Rotterdam.

0:21:300:21:39

If

anything is natural, including

sleep. For here, it is more a

0:22:020:22:07

celebration of sleeping, closing

eyes and moving, crossing borders to

0:22:070:22:12

another territory, together.

0:22:120:22:22

For me, I always sleep on my own

movies, and other people but like

0:22:240:22:27

movies, no matter how spectacular

they are. I just feel that the best

0:22:270:22:34

cinema is here. I am fascinated by

this closed eyed visions, and I

0:22:340:22:42

wanted to the guests to witness

different memories from the past.

0:22:420:22:46

The thing is about freedom and

communal activities that you dream,

0:22:570:23:02

maybe can share some teams. In a

sense, I do not have any patience.

0:23:020:23:08

-- expectations.

0:23:080:23:14

-- expectations.

I naturally had a

bloody good sleep. I am an

0:23:140:23:18

insomniac. I just cannot sleep very

well when I am travelling, and not

0:23:180:23:23

on my bed. But I slept a lot. Pleat

I had many dreams. I think there

0:23:230:23:29

were mixed with the images I was

seeing. Because I would wake up,

0:23:290:23:32

look at some images and then sleep

again.

I've never waking up at one

0:23:320:23:36

time and I was thinking, I had this

really nice team. I was really

0:23:360:23:43

remembering it in detail. So that I

could write it down later. I have

0:23:430:23:46

gotten it now.

Cinema and sleeping

belong together for me. When I go to

0:23:460:23:52

the cinema, I am mostly falling

asleep.

The Israeli embassy said it has

experienced a surge in anti-Semitic

0:23:580:24:02

incidents following a diplomatic row

between Israel and Poland over a

0:24:020:24:05

controversial Polish bills related

to the Holocaust. The proposed

0:24:050:24:08

legislation would criminalise anyone

accusing Poland of complicity with

0:24:080:24:12

Nazi Germany during the Second World

War. Warsaw says the bill aims to

0:24:120:24:16

stop the country being blamed for

Nasa crimes, but Israel has strong

0:24:160:24:19

condemned the move, with one Israeli

minister Colin it de facto Holocaust

0:24:190:24:23

the Nile. For more, I am joined by

Adam Easton and Walsall. The Polish

0:24:230:24:30

by minister has been speaking in the

past, about this.

The Polish Prime

0:24:300:24:36

Minister is saying what he has been

saying for a view days, that the

0:24:360:24:40

Polish Government is completely

against this because...

0:24:400:24:47

LOSS OF SOUND

Responsible for the Nazis during the

0:24:470:24:55

Second World War and the Holocaust,

particularly this quite often

0:24:550:25:00

repeated phrase, LOSS OF SOUND

Who designed, built and operated the

0:25:000:25:10

death camps.

Green I'm sorry, the sound is not

0:25:100:25:14

fully audible.

We'll can speak to

you later. Thank you.

0:25:140:25:22

The United States, we are told, is

going to have to brace itself for

0:25:220:25:26

more weeks of winter, the prediction

of this very little thing. He is a

0:25:260:25:34

groundhog called Punxsutawney Phil.

He is named after his hometown, in

0:25:340:25:39

Pennsylvania. Immortalised in 1993

classic film Groundhog Day. It is an

0:25:390:25:44

annual tradition for him to predict

the weather, if he does not catch a

0:25:440:25:48

shadow, that means thing has

arrived. This time he saw his shadow

0:25:480:25:52

as guy back in the soul, made

America can expect six weeks of

0:25:520:25:55

winter. Maybe who knows? To stay in

touch, I am on Twitter.
