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 the continuation of his fabulous assumption, McCain declares: “Vladimir Putin is a bad man, he is plotting something unkind. He is going to destroy the liberal rule of law with the United States at the head, which brought stability, freedom and prosperity to humanity.

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 was in awe of Putin. At first, I could explain this with Trump’s naivety and sheer carelessness about how Putin fights with American values ​​and interests. “I don’t think that Trump or his advisers consciously could have allowed Russian influence,” writes a 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 acquainted with it,” McCain writes. The accusations were frightening, but I didn’t even know if one of them had any basis. I could not independently confirm or deny them, so I did what any American would do if he was worried about the security of his nation. I hid the file in my safe, contacted the FBI, and made an appointment with its director, Jim Komi. As soon as this opportunity fell out. I met him and explained how the file fell into my hands. I admitted that I didn’t know if I could believe everything I had written, but I noticed that I have no doubt that the FBI is investigating everything as it should be and will deliver its verdict

The memoirs of the McCain Republican Senator “The Rebellious Wave: Good Times, Right Cases, Glorious Fights and Other Evaluations,” written in collaboration with Mark Salter, will be released in circulation by Simon & Schuster May 22.

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.
