Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona is keeping the Russia attack story going and is currently joining in the attacks on Jared Kushner. He is a non-stop opponent of Donald Trump and has to be the worst Republican in the party.
McCain was asked about it by Australia’s ABC News and indicated he is uneasy with a report that Trump son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner attempted to set up a back channelduring the transition.
“I don’t like it, I just don’t,” McCain said.
“I know some administration officials are saying this is standard procedure,” he said. “I don’t think it’s standard procedure prior to the inauguration of the president of the United States by someone who is not in an appointed position.”
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Sundayduring an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“[T]here’s a lot of different ways to communicate, back channel, publicly with other countries,” Kelly said. And he dismissed the idea that any importance should be attached to Kushner’s alleged efforts.
Trump isn’t an ordinary president and he tried to start his job before he got into office. He had set a 100-day timeline for himself, thinking he’d have Republican support. He made clear that he wanted to fight ISIS with Russia.
“I think Mr. Comey, we now know, took action that he did in regards to then-candidate Clinton in regards to false news that was being put out by the Russians,” McCain said in the interview with Australian news. “This is becoming more and more bizarre — in fact, you can’t make it up.”
No, you can make it up John and by it getting more bizarre, it doesn’t mean it’s more accurate, quite the opposite. This entire Russia story is without any evidence. The smoke they talk about is based on leaks from anonymous sources.
It is Obama who colluded with Medvedev and Hillary who received more than a hundred million dollars from the Russians for her Foundation after selling our uranium mine to them indirectly. It’s Hillary who allowed the sale of U.S. technology to Russia.
In McCain’s view, Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, have grown into a greater threat to the U.S. than ISIS.
“I think [Putin] is the premier and most important threat,” McCain said, adding, “more so than ISIS.”
McCain wants to go to war with Russia.
ISIS can do “terrible things,” McCain continued, “but it’s the Russians who tried to destroy the very fundamental of democracy, and that is to change the outcome of an American election.”
“I’ve seen no evidence that they succeeded, but they tried,” he went on. “And they’re still trying.”
No evidence being the operative words.
If the administration needed a back channel to the Russians, how could all these stories about Russia be true?
Where were Obama and McCain when the Russians were hacking our government agencies? Nothing was done and not much was said according to the former acting CIA director Mike Morell who also said that Russia isn’t our greatest foe.
