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....

I'd like for you to move forward with a personal event.
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 is this SOB gonna die?
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 McCains 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?
So, McCain believes our sanctions are an act of war more than bombing a country is or what?
Juan, could you please move backward...let’s say, about 6 feet?
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.
John McCain is the Hyman Roth of the senate.
Lord the obnoxious funeral to come
Bury him next to the Lion of the Senate
Bird of a feather....both highly overrated
Does anyone give a single F about this ahole?
Any body seen Mcain moving recently? I think hes already room temperature.
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.
North Vietnam ?
Hey John, surprised you didn’t recommend “reset the clock” Hillary to the summit.
...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...
