think you would have a russia and russia trying to interfere with our election in twenty sixteen with or without a dossier on it gallica has more now from washington d.c. . well the key date to watch here is monday evening when the democrats vote whether they will release their own ten page memo of course the democrats released a four page memo on friday which is proved to be very controversial it will then go to the president who has five days to approve it or not approve it one of the key issues for the democrats is they fear that it will be censored it will be made useless by the president and they're also extremely concerned about that original memo from the republicans they say they hand-picked certain information to undermine the robert mueller investigation and they're worried that president trump will use it all as a pretext to fire special counsel robert mueller which they say will lead to a constitutional crisis of course the president himself has been tweeting out on saturday morning that this whole thing is a witch hunt and
7:20 am
a hoax of course it isn't that's not true the investigation will carry on at full steam and he's been seriously advised not to fire special counsel robert mueller which has been widely reported he wanted to do back in the summer so what's to watch for in the next few hours is that vote among the democrats to see whether that ten page memo will be released and whether president trump ultimately will allow that to happen china is accusing the u.s. of having a cold war mentality in response to washington's plans to diversify its nuclear weapons the pentagon says its current nuclear bombs are too big and wants to develop smaller ones the u.s. says the policy revamp is largely in response to russian actions in recent years without amount to some the federation of american scientists he says washington's approach has been disappointing. this is standard chinese propaganda to try to paint their nuclear nuclear policies as fully responsible and the united states as being wildly irresponsible that having been said the trumpet ministrations nuclear

posture review does smell of the cold war it revitalizes certain cold war theories so for example it proposes two new nuclear weapons. one is a lower yield option for a sea launched ballistic missile the other is a new cruise missile the case for both of these requires that you believe that a low yield weapon could be used in a limited conflict so a small war. the united states is not planning you know immediately to use one of the weapons but it's alarming thinking i'm disappointed in in the american administrations. approach to this rather than charting a new course and working to reduce russian and chinese reliance on nuclear weapons they've simply accepted the same kind of logic that they've criticized so they're really buying into this arms race and embracing it the better way forward would be to insist that the united states its nuclear arsenal has all the capabilities that
