Walt the committee chair abruptly ending the marathon debate postponement historic vote on the two articles against the president. And what the members on both sides of the out to think about what has happened over these last two days. And to search they consciences before we cast a final vote.

If they don't and they suggested last night they were done with amendments. They could hold the vote sending it to the senate the majority leader's. There's zero chance the president obvious there would be removed from office. The president said he wants an aggressive trial and how include live witnesses that a lot of top Republicans in the senate are pushing back against that idea saying.

As whose father says he still wasn't sure everything was okay and to have little boy started crying definitely hear them. Well coming up the growing controversy over the accuracy of Clint eastwood's we'll be Richard Jewell plant stars of film is now speaking out but first the big election across the pond what it means for Brecht sit and the US. After this. Welcome back out without breaking news overnight the results of Britain's national election are and and the Conservative Party has secured a majority clearing away from Rex it to happen within weeks up across the. The ponds or foreign correspondent Maggie rule in the London bureau for the latest. Hey Maggie North American. Yeah. I'm doesn't want her earnest. You can't yeah yeah and that exam historic lion out like this Maggie does this mean we might actually. Actually finally see brags it. By the January 31 up by. Gadget as we've been talking about her exit for years now on I know everyone here in the UK the limited pregnant freer to turns out. Human actually finally get we'll finish this is sort of dubbed the Briggs it election in the you know after that historic landslide last night we saw Boris Johnson the Conservative Party. Just getting kind of insane numbers a majority now he in parliament here in. Adam Johnson came out overnight even saying that he sees this as kind of mandate from the people to go ahead. And now the K Briggs it done he feels like he has the support of the people the numbers that came out last night to support the Conservative Party he really feels like. Hundreds of people telling them to go ahead with brags that the deadline is approaching the new deadline for breast in January 31 but. That's just the deadline Mexico if it happening even before then. And the casual poll I did of you know my fellow British friends here in the London bureaus has pretty much with this election and it's all but guaranteed now that we will see. Greg's it happened the huge huge. Yeah that we've been waiting locked in to see if it will actually happen. The same got Maggie were seeing headlines at Scotland could vote to leave the UK and remain in the EU so what are you hearing. His name hasn't really interesting too because yes the Conservative Party hat I gained huge numbers last night but enough party. And the gains in living in numbers as well as a Scottish National Party in. One of their main tenants is. Is stay with the European Union now that means if the UK leaves the European Union they would want to remain. This could ultimately break up the United Kingdom which is something that sings. Insane it seems unprecedented that's because it is there is a possibility although. Publisher Conde by saying discuss Daschle's party if they wanted to do is back to get the approval. A parliament here in the UK will that happen we don't know but the sheer fact that. The numbers. The S&P actually grew in this election could give them the men to absorb right now it's just sort of skeptical to potential but it is something that people are talking about. And ruling there are some striking parallels for what might be to come in the 20/20 US election when it comes to misinformation on what can we learn from Britain. Elizabeth Anderson Kennedy was why people should really. Pay attention to what happened here overnight because we've been saying for quite some time there are so many parallels between the US election in this UK election some of them like. Misinformation misinformation has been characterized here as a driving force from both political parties in the UK election obviously. You know a bit about that back in the United States as well another thing that's been happening here accusations of for interference of a foreign interference in this election from outside governments that hasn't been confirmed but. It's definitely a concern definitely caution something we also know quite a bit about in the states as well. So as we're looking towards our own twenties when he election there are a lot of concerns or what can we learn from the UK how they handled misinformation how they handled. Outside interference is overly important things and on top of that we're also looking at. The outcomes of who got elected you know we heard biting even coming out a last night comparing Boris Johnson to president Donald Trump. Donald Trump came out congratulating Boris Johnson so we don't want to be. As saying that this is an exact parallel but it definitely is something that Americans should being paying attention to as we approached 120 which Kaiser is rapidly approaching. Wait used. That's a serious all that stuff with serious that you talked about but I'll I want to bring up the point that you just that our election opponent. I'd say don't we he that they I think you'll lap it up so I can't left us. Hey guys I would never leave you okay I'm but I am. I like we did a good quarter Brit now living there isn't one thing there is one thing that I feel like we need. You adopt from British culture okay this is the greatest thing I side of the UK election last night. Hash tag dogs that polling stations this. Is illegitimate saying I'm not just making the sudden need dispute photos apparent this happened for years here in the UK and is to trends. It's actually quite. Literally what it says if it's dogs at polling stations the people bring their dogs. And and they take photos of them. And then they pose for a photo underdog. At the polling station and keep explaining it just a beacon show more photos but. Nearly. Get back. It's nothing we want to go Obama more than no link. You could see beyond their dogs in Santa hats they were dogs dressed up there are dogs and all sorts of gear at the bulls is currently is a Boris Johnson walked into the market. Literally just like Winston Churchill as well the queen well.

The film directed by Clint Eastwood is about the Centennial Olympic Park bombing in 1996. With a Libya while portraying real life journalist Kathy Scruggs. Her efforts to find the bomber critics say the movie inaccurately suggest that Scruggs who died in 2001 traded sex for tips about the investigation. Looking at rich mutual. In the movie Scruggs sparks relationship with an FBI agent betrayed by actor John him in an apparent attempt to obtain information about Richard Jewell. Was once considered a suspect but was later cleared. Q&A journal constitution the newspaper were Scruggs worked says grunt is being unfairly depicted. And their ask you Warner Bros. to include a disclaimer in the movie this morning wild now speaking out tweeting. Contrary to us walk the recent headlines I do not believe that Kathy treated sex for tips. Nothing in my research suggests that she did so and it was never my intention to suggest she had. That would be an appalling a misogynist Dick dismissal of the difficult work it's what is also defending the research behind the film. There's only so much recently you do you can't live inside that people because they no longer exist she did did finally get answered to myself how she didn't. Nobody probably. Rubino.
