Report about U.S. and Russian interference in elections

I am furious about Russia's actions during the previous United States election, mostly because I came to Canada from the United States and hate what Trump stands for.  On Sunday, I listened to Michael Enright's essay on the inherent hypocrisy in this condementation given the history of election interference by the United States.   I found the story interesting but found it one-sided--what about intervention by the former Soviet Union??  What about the other European powers?

Donald Trump may have started a new arms race

President-elect Donald Trump exploded a half-century of U.S. nuclear-arms policy in a single tweet last week: "The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes." With that one vague message, Donald Trump, who hasn't even taken office yet, may have started a new arms race.

Trump's statement set off alarms around the world, necessitating a cadre of his inner circle to flood the airwaves with now-routine attempts to explain what their boss "really meant." On MSNBC, Rachel Maddow confronted former Trump campaign manager and newly appointed Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway about the shocking tweet:

Maddow: "He's saying we're going to expand our nuclear capability."
