McCain: Trump's meeting with Putin 'should not move forward'
CNN Politics ^ | July 13, 2018 | Daniella Diaz

Sen. John McCain praised the Department of Justice's announcement of the indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for interfering in the 2016 presidential election, adding President Donald Trump shouldn't meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin unless he holds him accountable.

"President Trump must be willing to confront Putin from a position of strength and demonstrate that there will be a serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression towards the United States and democracies around the world," the Arizona senator said in a statement Friday. "If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward."

The statement came hours after the Justice Department announced indictments against 12 Russian nationals as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, accusing them of engaging in a "sustained effort" to hack Democrats' emails and computer networks.

Trump is due to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin -- who has denied election meddling -- in Helsinki on Monday for a summit that includes a one-on-one meeting with only interpreters present....

Well, if you had won in 2008 you could've made decisions like that. But you didn't. Please stop roiling the waters and resign so the people of Arizona can have a senator who represents their best interests.

The events which have unfolded are precisely WHY Trump needs to meet with Putin. Duh. Not just the meddling, but the merry go-round situation with Iran and company in Syria, the bloodletting in East Ukraine, pipeline blackmail of Europe, and the pestering in general (Russia in cohoots with China puppeteering North Korea.)...the nuke arms race... Who knows where the Novichok comes from. It’s just all irritating.

Deals must be made.

McQueeg’s candidate did win in 2008... Zero.

BTW, for someone who is offering an opinion of every political topic, why doesn’t he get his ass back to DC or resign ?

Say, does he have the media camping out at his house so they can capture every burp, fart and queef that comes out of his treasonous mouth ?

When he croaks, I’m gonna make a special trip to where ever they bury the treasonous rat - just so I can p*$$ on his grave.

Wow, the Deep State is certainly rolling out the bread and circuses routine to try and stop the Trump-Putin meeting. A bunch of McCain’s fellow Democrat scum has come out with the same talking points tonight. All over the most lame-ass set of phony indictments imaginable.

Gee, I wonder what they are so afraid of?

That's odd, McCain didn't mind talking at length to the North Vietnamese when we were actively at war with them but now he doesn't want Trump to talk to Putin.

So, McCain believes our sanctions are an act of war more than bombing a country is or what?

McCain talks a lot for an almost dead guy. I don’t believe he is saying much of anything these days. I notice they never show video of McCain saying the things they claim he says.

Bird of a feather....both highly overrated

Somebody please throw this bag of corruption and betrayal over the border into Mexico. Let him die in the country of his loyalties - away from the American people he loathes so much.

Hey John, surprised you didn’t recommend “reset the clock” Hillary to the summit.

McBrain-rot should stop flapping his festered gums before he really twizzles-off The Boss. So far, those who've posed any real threat or nuisance to Trump haven't fared so well...

...then again, go for it, Johnny! To quote a great man, "What the hell do you have to lose?!"

You will be at the end of a very long line.

Hope you have bladder control...
