John McCain went on a crazy rant about Russia. He said some crazy things, but hidden in the craziness was one truth. There is no evidence that Russia succeeded in influencing our election.
McCain started his rant by claiming that Putin and Russia is worse than ISIS. “I think ISIS can do terrible things. But it’s the Russians who tried to destroy the fundamental of democracy and that is to change the outcome of an American election,” started McCain.
“I’ve seen no evidence they succeeded. But they tried, and they are still trying, they are still trying to change elections. They’re still trying to change elections. They just tried to affect the outcome of the French election,” said McCain.
“We have done nothing since the election last November to respond to Vladimir Putin’s attempt to change the outcome of our elections. So, way to go Vladimir. We haven’t responded at all,” McCain said.
McCain went on to critique President Trump for being ‘unpredictable’. “I do believe that the President has great confidence in this national security team. I do believe most of the time that he accepts their advice and counsel. Can I tell you that he does all the time? No. Does it bother me? Yes, it bothers me,” said McCain.
