Breitbart -- Long time Trump opponent Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said in an interview aired Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin represents more of a threat to the world than Islamic State — although he conceded that he has seen ‘no evidence’ Russia changed the outcome of the 2016 election.
“I think he is the premier and most important threat, more so than ISIS,” he said. “I think ISIS can do terrible things and I worry a lot what is happening with the Muslim faith and I worry about a whole lot of things about it.”
“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,” he said.
McCain, an outspoken opponent of President Trump, has frequently dipped his toe in Democrat-pushed theories about alleged Russian influence in the 2016 election. In the interview, he called the controversy surrounding Russia and the firing of FBI Director James Comey a “scandal of significant proportions.” However, he conceded that there is “no evidence” the Russians affected the outcome of the election.
“I’ve seen no evidence they succeeded, but they tried, and they are still trying to change elections, they just tried to affect the outcome of the French elections,” he said. “I view the Russians as the far greatest challenge we have.”
In the interview, McCain also said Trump makes him “nervous from time to time” but that he knows that the president frequently takes the advice of his national security team.
“Can I tell you that he does all the time? No. Does it bother me? Yes, it bothers me.”
Blog Author's Comments: John McCain is now so far gone, one has to wonder what would have happened within our country and with our allies, if he had ever been successful in his bid for the White House. The most depressing thing about the current state of affairs in our country is the people, who have wormed their way into powerful positions, on both sides of the aisle. This is just another piece of evidence that shows John McCain to be totally out of touch with reality. All of the ‘Russia hacked the election,’ fraudulent lies by the Democrats, mainstream media, and some members of the GOP will go on and on. There is nothing President Trump or any 'Special Investigator' can do that will halt the disparagement from the left, the media and people like McCain.
What a strange world we are living in. President Trump and his team are accused of conspiring with Vladimir Putin of Russia in changing the outcome of the 2016 election, without any shred of evidence, period! At the same time we have a lot of evidence against Hillary Clinton and even Barack Obama, but neither of these two will ever suffer any consequences for their actions, deceit and lies which have had a very negative impact on America. They are still running around and spreading their lies about Trump and the Republican Party to anyone who will listen to them or pay them for their leftist views.
I can understand the Democrats grabbing on to any straw of deceit against Trump because that is all they have. But, John McCain has proven himself to be a small, bitter, jealous old man, who is not fit to be a member of the U.S. Senate. This coming from McCain:“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,” he said. -- “I’ve seen no evidence they succeeded, but they tried, and they are still trying to change elections."
It is all a slow-motion bloodless coup attempt. The truth has nothing to do with it. McCain is part of the disinformation committee, and he's a major embarrassment to the Republican Party. He and other fools within the GOP are working for the opposition, and helping to destroy our country. But, he does not care; he will retire from politics after his term is over. But, in the meantime, will apparently do what he can to damage Trump's success as our president which will also hurt our country and many good people.
