Senator John McCain put out a statement regarding the release of the FISA Memo.
House Intelligence Committee staff had prepared the memo showing how their investigation uncovered troubling surveillance abuses and reliance by the FBI on the Democrats’ dubious dossier to obtain surveillance warrants from the secretive FISA Courts.
But you won’t believe who John McCain said benefits from the memo’s release!
That’s right. John McCain thinks no one in America benefits from knowing about these surveillance abuses but Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In 2016, the Russian government engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy. Russia employed the same tactics it has used to influence elections around the world, from France and Germany to Ukraine, Montenegro, and beyond. Putin’s regime launched cyberattacks and spread disinformation with the goal of sowing chaos and weakening faith in our institutions. And while we have no evidence that these efforts affected the outcome of our election, I fear they succeeded in fueling political discord and dividing us from one another.
The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s. The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded. Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.
Aside from the fact that the memo completely undermines what little shred of credibility the Russia narrative may have had remaining, there’s no benefit to Putin in any way shape or form with the memo’s release!
What do you think? Is it past time for John McCain to resign from the Senate?
