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."

Continuing his fabulous assumption, McCain declares: “Vladimir Putin is a bad man, he is plotting evil. He is going to destroy the liberal rule of law led by the United States, 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.

“Back when Trump was a presidential candidate, I noticed how he was in awe of Putin. At first, I could explain this by Trump's naivety and general carelessness in relation to how Putin fights American values ​​and interests. I do not think that Trump or his advisers could knowingly allow Russian influence, writes the Republican senator. "But even the smallest risk that an American leader could become a victim of Russian extortion needs to 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 accusations were frightening, but I didn't know there was any basis in any of them. I could not independently confirm or deny them, so I did what any American who worried about the safety of his nation would do in my place. I hid the dossier in my safe, contacted the FBI and made an appointment with its director, Jim Comey. As soon as the opportunity fell. I met with him and explained how the dossier got into my hands. I admitted that I do not know if I can believe everything written, but I noticed that I have no doubt that the FBI will investigate everything as it should, and will deliver its verdict

GOP Senator McCain's memoir, Rebellious Wave: Good Times, Right Things, Glorious Fights, and More, co-authored with Mark Salter, will be released May 22 by Simon & Schuster.

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.
