a day. and into the sea and rescuers locate the black boxes of the plane that crashed with 62 people on board as they retrieve more human remains. we begin then in the united states where senate democratic leader chuck schumer is warning that the threat of violence extremism remains high after the storming of congress by supporters of president trump he's told the head of the f.b.i. to relentlessly pursue those responsible to avoid any unrest ahead of joe biden's inauguration in 10 days it comes as the democrats continue to draft new articles of impeachment against trump of zeroes political hay report style from washington. this video obtained by the washington post shows just how few police officers there were to keep rioters some armed with restraints and weapons from getting to members
2:02 am
of congress from the us a member say when they were trying to get out the last available exit there were only 3 officers holding the line trying to give them enough time to escape when they stepped aside as a window was broken a writer was shot by the representatives and their staff escaped this video was captured by a reporter for the huffington post rioters looking for the senate he says if they had turned right they would have entered the chambers with senators inside this lone capitol police officer directed them away from it and up the stairs instead but not everyone was this confused one congressman says there is evidence son had planned their attack there is a ma. this is an awesome guy but never going to do all of this by the office. to the office. and where i usually a my sat. was in my office. had all the furniture and stuff at the
2:03 am
door and there were people trying to get we're going to the capitol and the president directed these followers to march on the capitol he told them the election was stolen and now democrats say he should pay for inciting insurrection they're moving to impeach him within days our main priority is to ensure the removal of dollars of president that every minute and every hour of that office represents clear and present danger not just to the united states congress but frankly country but not all republicans are onboard some using the same reason in that they did after the president was impeached the 1st time i my personal view is that the president touched the hot stove on wednesday and as unlikely to touch it again many say an impeachment will only divide the. further but some argue it's necessary for the long term health of the country until the united states starts taking steps to hold those who both grew to subpoenaed physically actions but also
2:04 am
incited the actions in and aided and you will see accountability for all of that and a renewed commitment among republicans to. use i'm afraid we should expect that this is only the beginning of the rise of on prism and perhaps even. it's unclear if legally the senate can hold an impeachment trial for a president who has already left office the courts will likely have to decide that but it does seem likely that in the coming days the house of representatives will make sure that donald trump is the only u.s. president to have been impeached twice pedicle him el jazeera at the capital life out of washington officers mike hanna is there for us mike what's the latest on the investigation into the capital riots and what are we to make of chuck schumer's revokes that the threat of violent extremism groups remains high.
2:05 am
well senator schumer is not the only one expressing that particular fear the mayor of d.c. meriel pouncer as actually approached the acting secretary of homeland security and asked him to cancel all permits that have been issued for demonstrations over the last 10 days he says that there is a very real threat of further violence and there must be a great degree of planning than there was on wednesday with the period to be very little planning at all in terms of dealing with these threats of violence now also we heard from a congressman jason crowe who says in a conversation with the acting secretary of defense he's been informed that at least 25 cases of domestic terrorism are being investigated with regard to wednesday's events now the secretary of defense would be involved because he would have been responsible for the deployment of the national guard during that ongoing siege of the capital so certainly there are great fears about the possibility of
2:06 am
further violence and discussions ongoing between various departments of the federal government to avoid a repetition of what happened on wednesday what's the latest on plans to impeach the president mike. well those appear to be going ahead now democrat members of congress held a lengthy phone conversation saturday in which they were briefed by nancy pelosi the speaker of the house and it does appear from various reports emerging from those discussions that the democrats are going to go ahead with writing articles of impeachment and voting on them as soon as 3 days by wednesday this week however there is an issue here and that is that the senate is not due to convene until the day before joe biden's inauguration so they would not be time for a senate trial but now the speculation is the possibility that the house could vote
2:07 am
to impeach and then the articles of impeachment be kept away from the senate for at least $100.00 days the 1st 100 days of the biden ministration and then submitted to the senate for trial so there are various options on the table but it does appear very likely that impeachment is going to go ahead in the next few days some senators and congress people are actually arguing though that president trump instead should emulate richard nixon and resign before being impeached and facing a trial by the senate i think the best way for our country chuck is for the president to resign and go away as soon as possible. i knowledge that may not be likely but i think that would be best does not look as though there is the will or the consensus to exercise the 25th amendment option and i don't think there's time to do an impeachment there's 10 days left before the president leaves
2:08 am
anyway i think the best thing would be a resignation. well the senate has to he's opinion that president trump should resign others have called for his resignation and the democrats intent on going forward with impeachment one single very important point if a president trump is found guilty in a senate trial he could be forbidden from ever holding a federal office again al-jazeera smike hanna reporting live from washington mike many thanks indeed to want kansas republican political strategist and former white house aide to george w. bush he joins us now via skype from some adelphia good to have you with us again joe where do you stand on whether or not president trump should be impeached. well i think that the letter of the law should. be allowed to play out we have a peter for reason in the united states and clearly. what happened today was not acceptable to every american we don't believe in mob ballance we are
2:09 am
a nation of laws and so seeing that mob approach capitol hill and then over to capitol building by force and really discreet building was was not acceptable to americans watching that and so there is an appetite right now in the senate and also in the house more importantly in the house and certainly stronger now than it is in the senate but that there's an appetite in the house solely to impeach the president in the next 3 days and it's not unlikely that the senate will take it up maybe 100 days into the by the administration and they could still vote to convict the president which means that you'd be banned from ever running were public office again so in any case. impeachment is on the table and it's likely to happen in the house this coming week what about the calls for the resignation or censure of sizes cruz unholy when he's tunnel that.
2:10 am
well clearly senator hawley and senator cruz. did not act in the best interests of the american people or the people they serve in missouri and texas. their speeches were felt by many to egg on the crowd that that descended on capitol hill on the capitol building and so right now there are members of the senate that are talking about the possibility of century in them some of the newspapers in their 'd respective states have already called on them to resign their seats in the u.s. senate but we have yet to see what they will do there are no pressure to listen to what the newspaper suggests but the possibility of censure is certainly very serious and it doesn't happen very often and missed the careers of people in the past who have been centered the most notable probably joe mccarthy he was censored by the u.s. senate back in the 1950 s. who was well as way to be a national star and and was just destroyed by the censure that took place in the
2:11 am
1000 pities so it's possible that they could be censured. certainly a lot in their careers the president elect says that he wants a robust republican party so that's a proper opposition and debates. what happens the g.o.p. post trump does it need a period of reflection and soul searching now. political parties not really built for that little parties are unique animals they they're built to win no different in the u.k. i mean 'd you don't really have much if you want to power and so parties adapt themselves to the interests and needs of the people time to be able to win a majority so they can take control again republicans will try very hard to win back control of the u.s. house of representatives and the united states senate in 2022 and they'll be a very very strong concerted effort by republicans to win the white house back in 4024 but now what that looks like and what the issues will be is anybody's guess
2:12 am
and how much of the trump base the existing drum base will remain with the party is is anybody's guess clearly in the 2020 cycle president had a significant base of support but that base is likely to wane a little bit given the events of the last week and the emergence of new candidates in the republican party goods talking again so many thanks indeed joe watkins that in philadelphia thanks so much preliminary results and kind of a stance presidential election show the nationalist such a pot off as one almost 80 percent of the vote for part of claimed victory and pledged to bring stability to the central asian country for a political crisis that put him on the pot to power on his child stratford reports from bishkek this is a monument to kyrgyzstan soviet past a reminder of a time before the beginnings of democracy after the breakup of the soviet union 30

2:14 am
a presidential system which his critics say is a threat to democratic progress and would give him additional power if as expected he becomes president support base comes from kyrgyzstan's a rule population who have suffered decades of economic and political neglect. his critics often keen to point out that these deep sleep politicized country has overthrown of 3 presidents in revolutions in the last 30 years and their opinions often come with a warning. this led to our society is mature enough and highly politicized whoever wins the election it is quite difficult to stop open democratic processes people have woken up they cannot be stopped the point is how politically mature with a leader be and how will he work. some analysts say the democratic evolution of kyrgyzstan will continue but more chaos cannot be ruled out i think this is not the
2:15 am
end of democracy and i thought as a shrink he said this is more like a that a serious and the very supporters the very people who brought power these people into power are not going to be waiting for that long. to deliver proper governance and with this sort of constitutional reform and this sort of power centralization it's not going to work out the central election commission says that with more than 95 percent of votes counted song georgia power has won the presidential election it also says that in the constitutional referendum there's been a convincing yes to a return to some form of presidential system of governance now to polish supporters will be pleased with both outcomes but his critics will say the journey towards democracy has been delayed again charles trafford al-jazeera bishkek and a parliamentary election has been held in neighboring cassock stop president seemed
