china. and therefore, the chinese will be responsible for them. so anything that we're going to do, we can only do with the chinese concurrence, and they're not going to concur on anything. >> but that's just it, that's the point, it's not happening. the chinese have not -- the yellow river, i could swim across the yellow river, it's not that wide. but the chinese haven't helped us, no matter how much we've asked them to. and meanwhile, they're having all these nuclear tests and ballistic missile tests. sooner or later they're going to geit right. >> what's going to happen -- you're absolutely correct about that. they're streaking towards the ability to do anything they want to with nuclear weapons. we could put a few more strictures on north korea, short of a blockade, but that's going to agitate the chinese and that's going to wind up in difficulty, too. at the end of the day, it's going to require a great deal of diplomacy to convince the chinese that we're not after a southern dominated peninsula, but that they need to find some way to put the strictures on north korea. >> how do w

we're told was talk about can we cooperate in containing china, which was a bit of a stunner because we hadn't heard that before. but the contacts after the election, we are told, focused on the possibility of setting up a direct back channel between russian president vladimir putin and president trump that could have circumvented the u.s. national security establishment. now, let's not forget that president trump had major beeves with that establishment and so does russia. >> so, that might be bad management. the only way, again, ken help me out with this. the problem is if, i assume, if flynn was doing something to meddle with the election, get some sort of sinister help from, hypothetical, from russia to meddle with our election, that would be in the category of deep trouble. if he were doing some sort of sneaky business thing having to do with sanctions like making a promise, i'll get the sanctions reduced in exchange -- that would be a problem. so, i mean, some of these conversations i assume are conversations that are not objectionable. is that what you're hearing from the intelli
