    Congress authorizes Trump to arm Syrian rebels with anti-aircraft missiles The House voted for the first time today to explicitly authorize the incoming Donald Trump administration to arm vetted Syrian rebels with anti-aircraft missiles. Summary Today, the House passed a defense bill that conditionally allows the provision of MANPADs to anti-Syrian regime forces. Author Julian Pecquet Posted December 2, 2016 While the language in the annual defense bill also creates restrictions on the provision of the controversial weapons, it represents a win for Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., a fervent advocate of helping the rebels resist President...

    Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senators  John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) released the following statement today on the Egyptian parliament’s passage of legislation regulating non-governmental organizations (NGOs): “The Egyptian parliament’s passage of draconian legislation regulating non-governmental organizations (NGOs) undermines Egypt’s stated commitment to protecting constitutionally-guaranteed rights and to furthering Egypt’s democratic transition. We urge President al-Sisi to reject this legislation and uphold Egypt’s constitutional commitment to freedom of association and assembly.  “This legislation would effectively subject the operation of independent NGOs to powerful Egyptian security agencies. Egypt’s longstanding and vibrant civil society would be placed under unprecedented pressure to cede...

    The Senate Armed Services chair vowed to help move Mattis through the upper chamber's confirmation process. McCain, who will chair Mattis's confirmation hearing, told the Washington Examiner that he would write the bill to grant Mattis a waiver of the seven-year rule. Not all lawmakers agreed on that Thursday night. Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a former Hillary Clinton supporter, said she is against changing that rule in order to accommodate Mattis. "While I respect Gen Mattis's service, I oppose a waiver-civilian control of our military is a fundamental principle of American democracy," Gillibrand tweeted.

    In a Senate floor speech today, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham announced that they are offering an amendment to strip a key element of the recently passed Justice Against Sponsors of Terror Act (JASTA) that clarifies U.S. law for civil claims against foreign governments for funding terrorism. JASTA was passed in the Senate in May with no objections, and passed the House of Representatives unanimously in September. President Obama promptly vetoed the bill. The Senate and House successfully voted to override the veto and the bill became law. McCain and Graham specifically said they want to strip the "discretionary...
  • Grumpy McCain: I have more important things to do than comment on what Trump says

    He’s just been reelected, he’s probably in his final term, and he’s built up a thick skin after being bashed by grassroots conservatives for so many years. If Trump nominates someone for the cabinet who’s obviously unqualified or tries to push a giant infrastructure boondoggle through the Senate, McCain’s free to say no and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. Judging from his tone here, he’s fully prepared to do so.

"The President-elect’s announcement that he intends to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, though anticipated, is still a disappointment to those of us who still believe in free trade and the importance of America’s strategic role in the Asia-Pacific region," McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in a statement. He added that Trump's decision to pull out of the trade deal, which is already expected to die on the vine in this year's lame-duck...

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...

    A hacked email published by WikiLeaks this week shows that Democratic strategists — including top political allies of Hillary Clinton — were gauging voter attitudes about the Muslim faith of Barack Obama’s father during Clinton's unsuccessful fight for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. If this had come out in the midst of the 2008 Democratic primaries it would no doubt prompt angry comments from Obama campaign staffers and condemnations of attempts to other-ize the senator. But Democrats, not surprisingly, were mum Friday. According to Tom Matzzie and Paul Begala, two Democratic consultants advising the 2008 polling effort by Progressive Media...
