McCain: Rand Paul ‘Is Now Working for Vladimir Putin’

6

Sen. John McCain on Wednesday directly accused fellow Republican Sen. Rand Paul of working for Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Daily Beast reports. While speaking from the Senate floor in support of a bill advancing Montenegro’s bid to join NATO, McCain noted objection from the Kentucky senator, saying, “You are achieving the objectives of Vladimir Putin… trying to dismember this small country which has already been the subject an attempted coup.” He continued: “If they object, they are now carrying out the desires and ambitions of Vladimir Putin and I do not say that lightly.”

Several moments later, after McCain asked for unanimous consent to move the bill forward, Sen. Paul raised his objection and then exited the room. This set off McCain, who railed against Paul: “I note the senator from Kentucky leaving the floor without justification or any rationale for the action he has just taken. That is really remarkable, that a senator blocking a treaty that is supported by the overwhelming number, perhaps 98—at least—of his colleagues would come to the floor and object and walk away.” He then directly connected Paul to the Russians: “The only conclusion you can draw when he walks away is he has no justification for his objection to having a small nation be part of NATO that is under assault from the Russians. So I repeat again, the senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin.”

  1. McCain has some serious issues that, I think, make him unfit to be in the Senate. Because another Senator has a different perspective that qualifies calling him an agent of Putin.
    I have serious concerns about McCain, and also Lindsay Graham, both of which are doing everything in their power to create events that could lead to an all out war with Russia. We have tanks along the border with Russia doing military exercises. It wouldn’t take much for a spark to ignite to a point where things get out of hand. This is what some are saying.

    Well now the US Army is going to move a battalion sized group, about 1,000 soldiers, to eastern Poland about 100 miles from Russia. It will stay for about six months staring in March 2017, and probably be replaced in kind. Lt. General Ben Hodges, commander US Army Europe, said, “When the U.S. is serious about something, we put money on it and people on it. We need to transition from assurance to deterrence. A big part of this is our enhanced forward presence to Poland.” So the force is meant to be a deterrent, to wit a trip-wire. Those are not enough to stop a Russian invasion. But if Russia were to come across, the force would defend Poland to the last drop of blood and the US would have to retaliate with massive force, including nuclear weapons. Romania will contribute some forces, and the entire force will integrate with the Polish 15th Mechanized Brigade. Hodges said, “Ideally this will deter our enemies by adjusting their planning. They will see that NATO would be too costly to attack.”

    We need to Stop this!!

  2. Paul is kooky but McCain has now officially entered the Joe Biden zone. McCain was a hero back in the day but it’s time for him to hang them up. He is a living example of why we must make term limits mandatory.
