But trump signaling he'll still be paying attention to the impeachment proceedings back in Washington Monday morning he took issue with the House Judiciary Committee scheduling a hearing while he's overseas. This gathering of NATO leaders was meant to be a celebration and event to mark the seventieth anniversary of the military alliance. And showcase its strength. Like previous NATO gatherings there is tension among leaders but this time it's not just president trump disrupting the agenda. French president Lecrone sparked fierce backlash when he questioned the future of NATO diagnosing it with what he declared to be its quote brain death. And Turkey has angered NATO leaders with is recent military operation in northern Syria. For a three year as president trump his push for NATO countries to step up their contributions to the alliance. So keep up that message here in London.

Welcome back we turn now to the fall out after a bombshell interview with prince Andrew's accuser of Virginia Roberts you free insist Jeffrey Epstein directed her to have sex with Andrew when she was seventeen. And this morning she slamming a difference for denying the accusations claiming he's making ridiculous excuses. In her first TV interview with British media Virginia Roberts Jew free is taking on prints in for only one of us telling the truth. And I know that's me Jew free says in court filings that she was directed by Jeffrey Epstein to have sex with the prince when she was seventeen. Prince Andrew denied that claim during his controversial recent interview when he discussed his friendship with Epstein a convicted sex offender who investigators say he killed himself. While awaiting trial for sex trafficking that you are staying at the house has convicted sex and it was a convenient place to stay. In an interview with the BBC recorded before prince Andrews interview Jew free describes dancing with the prince the night of this now infamous photo. He is the most hideous stance there. I've ever seen in my life. I think it is horrible and as I was sweating all over me that claim flatly denied by the prints this is slide program with with the with with with the stressing. Because. Have a Q did many of position which is about that sweat. Like didn't slit at the time Jew free is also blasting critics who claim the photo of them together was faked. I think the world is getting sick of these ridiculous excuses. It's a real photo I've given its the FBI for their investigation. And it's an authentic photo is did you date on the back of it from an analyst. Content. This morning Buckingham Palace has not commented on Hugh freeze interview as many say the prince should remain out of the spotlight. Tool that prince Andrew's keen to do an interview in order to respond to claims fitness Geoffrey makes. That would be a very bad decision given how reluctant he ranks I think everyone's in agreement that she TD gave animal in skis that needs to be to no enforcement authorities. Buckingham Palace says the prince regrets his association with Jeffrey Epstein and denies any form of sexual contact or relationship which you free. The prince could face subpoenas if he returns to the US. Joining us now for more on this is foreign correspondent Julie McFarland across the pond in the legend bureau. Julia good morning how are people there in England reacting to this inner deal. Right so yeah prince hundreds troubles gritty on gang away remember it was. Just David two weeks ago that he gave and dot pressed into deeds and we've made less of BBC news tonight. And the widespread for a lot from that and today it's kind of as a result to. A lot of the claims he made him not when he seemed to holding a lot of water and accusations that he was not remorseful of his friendship with Jeffrey abstain. And he had not any was for the women that I'm that many of them Gaza the time. All of you who are victims of Jeffrey app stings crimes at the time. And I have to set what's the documentary last night. Ands and the way they added it was very very jarring the way they went into incredibly deep tell attest and may not just from Virginia Roberts to fray but also. Two other women if you are bringing cases against Jeffrey Epstein five women and tea till. Have cost of four pence on due to testify. And another rat and revelation about that why there are subpoenas join up but when depends on June. If he ever gaze to the U last but it I have to say it was very jarring to see. Testimony from these women spliced in with pence on news and to be with Newsnight remember some of the things he said and that entity saying that he did not regret. His friendship with Jeffrey Epstein because it he provided useful contacts a hand. I'm not a single wide over what's what for theirs goes now I do you say Buckingham Palace has since. Released a statement off that and he's saying that he unequivocally regretted his entire friendship. With Jeffrey Epstein now we land some new things in this film a loss let me lands and UD tells from the Jannero bits she. The reiterated claims that she is an Adelson against Kim and Maxwell prince Andrew's friends that the British socialite to day to Jeffrey Epstein. Look some women are accusing half of being a kind of mountain and an A blamed a lot. On Jeffrey Epstein crimes she is under investigation and the US but she maintains that she. Was not involved in any of his crimes and she did not witness any wrongdoing against any of those goes and that the claims against Prince Andrew. Often falls but some ready in just staying the new. On that documentary which I just gonna provide more of a headache. For the palace and the presence of these subpoenas are also incredibly problematic we now find us of the situation whether queen's second son. Is effectively unable to travel TVU west. In case he doesn't want it because he wouldn't want to give it was deposition old and he has said that he is happy. But to comply with any law enforcement agencies. This thing just keeps the schooling and schooling that's moving yes so much every every single turn you know what we got you Juliette. We know that you got it we are very plugged in and in a global sense of a common thing we're talking about in the United States and as a man I would imagine you're also talking about an England is. Expanding technology vs privacy and government overreach and want to talk about China's new requirement that new mobile phone users. Half to submit a facial scan in China says it is her protect citizens' interest and rights in cyberspace and protect against fraud but. Obviously there's a lot of critics to this and what's what of the so some of the concerns and what are people saying. Right so this is a new regulation that China hasn't begun to and force today that. You all knew may above Fey needs a self venues as have to submit. A facial sky and now the Chinese authorities say this since two combatants pages of security. Sigh before though these kinds of things. But critics say that this is an increasing and creeping pot of China's authoritarian at the surveillance system. So many interest staying. It. A found that 80% of faces facial recognition suspects that they. Had lied and I should tend not to be innocent so a lot of people as saying that this technology. It's new but it is largely untested and is not a huge amount. Evidence to suggest that it helps to fight crime. But a lot of some civil liberty come pain is raising the on issues with us. And of course this is also having the same time about this class action lawsuit against the apple take talk. Is gang on and California and you guys know that huge and wildly successful. App that's gotten more than half a billion years as wild wide their claims that it didn't send information. Back into the Chinese it's and that is a fan that is based in Beijing and the slow fade this lawsuit filed in California last week claims. That take talk creek clandestinely in vacuums up. And tries but to sevens in China Boston quantities. Of private and pests we identifiable. Use a data. Certainly not first time John has been accused of stepping on civil liberties definitely. I'm Julie McFarland always a pleasure to see you have good Tuesday over their banks bank Boris let's check notifications now we're gonna start with the new Star Wars celebrity baby.
