John McCain: Russia's goal is to defeat the whole West


Senator-veteran of the Republican Party John McCain fights against cancer, and in his spare time he writes articles with his vision of the development of certain political events. After returning home after another operation, he plans to publish his memoirs in the near future, in which he hopes to expose the results of the election of 2016 and explain the reasons why relations with Russia have been shaken since that time.

"Putin pursues the goal - not to defeat one or another candidate or even a party, but to defeat the whole West."

In continuation of his fabulous supposition, McCain says: "Vladimir Putin is a bad person, he is plotting evil. He is going to destroy the liberal rule of law with the US at the head, which brought stability, freedom and prosperity to mankind.

The senator admits that he stopped trusting Putin long before Trump's victory in the elections. "I am equally skeptical about the Russian policy of the last four administrations. In my political career there were many mistakes, but with respect to Putin, I am sure that I am right. "

McCain admitted that evidence of Russian interference in the electoral process in 2016 shocked him. However, further actions, or rather, the inaction of the Trump administration, amazed him even more.

"Even when Trump was a presidential candidate, I noticed how he reveres Putin. At first, I could explain this by Trump's naivety and general lack of control over how Putin fights American values ​​and interests. I do not think that Trump or his advisors could consciously admit Russian influence, writes the Republican senator. "But even the minimal risk that the American leader could become a victim of Russian extortion must be thoroughly investigated."

McCain managed to get a copy of the document known as "dossier." A former British intelligence officer, Christopher Steele, was commissioned to investigate the links between Trump's election campaign and Kremlin agents, and to find out what compromising power Putin had taken over the future president.

Steele drew up a dossier full of "piquant details", but critics immediately rejected it, citing unverified information. The president was more puzzled by the customer's question, he thought that the dossier was compiled on the FBI's order, and he disrupted this state structure.

"I got to know him," McCain writes. The charges were frightening, but I knew I have at least one of them under some kind of foundation. I could not independently confirm or disprove them, so I acted as any American who was worried about the safety of his nation would have done in my place. I hid the dossier in my safe, contacted the FBI, and signed up for an appointment with his director Jim Komi. As soon as possible. I met him and explained how the file got into my hands. I confessed that I do not know if I can believe everything written, but I noticed that I do not doubt that the FBI will investigate everything as expected, and will issue its verdict

Memoirs of Senator McCain of the Republican Party "Rebellious Wave: Good Times, Right Cases, Glorious Battles and Other Valuations", co-written with Mark Salter, will be published in the Simon & Schuster publishing house 22 May.

McCain needs to choose one of two evils: either he fights cancer, or he fights against Russia. Otherwise, two birds will not chase after one.
