McCain Unhappy With Russia/Trump Investigation. Demands Select Committee

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been unhappy with the results so far from the Russia investigation. On Sunday he said that a select committee must be formed to investigate every aspect of Russian interference in the U.S. 2016 presidential election.

“Every time we turn around, another shoe drops from this centipede,” McCain told host Martha Raddatz on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

“We need to examine every aspect of it: President Trump’s priorities, and the other priorities many of us believe exist,” McCain said.

McCain also stated that there needs to be an investigation on the motives behind Russia wanting to meddle in the election in order to prevent any meddling to happen in future campaigns.

“Obviously, if there was intentional disclosure of names of people who were in the Trump campaign, that has to be revealed. But the fact is that we know for a fact the Russians tried to change the outcome of our election, attacking the very fundamental of democracy,” McCain said. “We need to know how, we need to know why, and most of all we need to know what to do to prevent this kind of activity, which they continue to carry on in free nations around the world.”

McCain also offered a warning about Russia, saying that their recent actions are very similar to their behavior during the Cold War.

“They are succeeding in continuing their dismemberment of Ukraine, they are succeeding in exerting an enormous influence in the Middle East which they never had before, they have succeeded in interfering with our election and we know they continue that in the French election and other elections. And so far, they have paid a little or no penalty for all of this misbehavior,” McCain added.
