President-Elect Donald Trump has been ordered to abandon any notion of easing hostilities with Russia that would diffuse a conflict that could blossom into a full scale nuclear war. Newly reelected six term Senator John McCain is warning Trump about patching relations up with Vladimir Putin in an audacious display that shows that the establishment GOP swamp in Congress is teeming with snakes who would impeach and remove the new POTUS in a nanosecond.
According to CNN “McCain to Trump: Don’t try to reset relations with Putin”:
A Republican hawk, John McCain, is warning a Republican President-elect, Donald Trump, about growing too close to Vladimir Putin before Trump’s presidency even begins.
McCain on Tuesday did not mention Trump’s name in a statement but left no question about his opinion on a president acting too chummy with the Russian leader. Trump has been criticized by Republicans at times for his praise of Putin and believes that the US and Russia can work strategically together to advance an international agenda.
McCain said President Barack Obama’s attempts to cool tensions between the US and Russia had enabled the nation to exert more power in Syria and provide key support to embattled Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.
“At the very least, the price of another ‘reset’ would be complicity in Putin and Assad’s butchery of the Syrian people. That is an unacceptable price for a great nation,” McCain said. “When America has been at its greatest, it is when we have stood on the side those fighting tyranny. That is where we must stand again.”
McCain said to pay no heed to any more conciliatory language from Putin, who he blasted as a “former KGB agent who has plunged his country into tyranny, murdered his political opponents, invaded his neighbors, threatened America’s allies, and attempted to undermine America’s elections.”
In delivering his diatribe, McCain is regurgitating Hillary Clinton’s bullshit talking points about Russian plots to sway the U.S. election minus any real proof. It’s an unprecedented act of brinkmanship from a leading member of Congress towards a new president who has the support of sixty plus million voters. McCain has been a vocal critic of Trump and often worked to undermine him during the primaries.
Trump should unleash the feds on the deranged old warmonger to see if any laws were broken when McCain was palling around with his buddies in ISIS and for just for good measure, maybe the Trump Justice Department can look into stories that the Arizona codger did his best to impede and obstruct any investigation into POW/MIA’s who were left behind in Vietnam. As one of those implicated in the infamous Keating Five savings and loan scandal McCain has a closet full of skeletons and if he’s not going to join the Democrats in undermining the new administration some long-needed scrutiny into the more shady aspects of his past may be in order.
