  • 'I view it more seriously than Orlando or San Bernardino': Russian hacking ...says John McCain (tr)

    02/20/2017 9:15:16 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 100 replies
    John McCain is criticizing President Donald Trump's immigration ban, statements on torture, and attacks on the press while also pledging to investigate any possible ties the commander-in-chief and his administration may have to Russia and Vladmir Putin. In an interview with New York Magazine, Senator McCain reveals that after President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton back in November he was fully prepared to back his fellow party member, despite the pair's contentious relationship in the past. However he quickly found himself at odds with the billionaire businessman. The 80-year-old war hero saves his harshest words however for Russia and leader Vladmir...

    Sen. John McCain slammed President Donald Trump's attacks on the media this week by noting dictators "get started by suppressing free press." It was a startling observation from a sitting member of Congress against the President of the United States, especially considering McCain is a member of Trump's party. "I hate the press," the Arizona Republican sarcastically told NBC News' Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press." "I hate you especially. But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It's vital."

    Arizona Senator John McCain is a very popular figure with the mainstream media. (I bet that’s a sentence you never thought you’d read.) The latest reason for this newly emerging love affair between the press and the decorated war hero is his response to the speech given by President Trump during his rally in Florida yesterday. Following the brief but raucous event, McCain was ushered out to give the media his own take on the speech, during which he invoked the image of a “dictator” when discussing the president’s critique of political journalism.

    Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) ripped fellow Republican Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) on Sunday after McCain criticized President Trump’s escalating war of words with the media. He argued that the nation is “very lucky” that Trump is president and not McCain, who won the 2008 GOP nomination but lost to Barack Obama in the general election. Paul said that McCain’s recent criticisms of Trump are driven by his “personal dispute” with the president over foreign policy. He added that McCain and Trump are at odds because McCain supports the wide deployment of U.S. troops to protect and promote American interests abroad...

The bill is intended as a message that the GOP wishes to repudiate Russia for its hostile actions despite Republican president-elect Donald Trump has publicly questioned the country's involvement in the hack of the Democratic National Committee.

Trump’s most tense exchange was with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has been vocal in his concerns about the business mogul’s candidacy, especially his rhetoric and policies on immigration that the senator argues alienate many Latino voters and others in Arizona....

Just this week, John has voted to allow the federal government to prowl through our internet browsing histories without a court warrant and to deny self-defense rights based on secret lists without any judicial approval or oversight as required by...
