The president of the Deep State demands action..
Friday’s suspiciously timed announcement that twelve Russians were indicted for hacking the DNC has elicited calls for the cancellation of the summit between President Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
Not only have Democrats seized on de facto attorney general Rod Rosenstein’s bombshell to once again make Russia into the centerpiece of their campaigns but the warmongering Russiaphobes are using it to torpedo peace talks.
And nobody loves war more than dying Senator John McCain.
McCain – or whoever is running his Twitter account – issued orders to Trump to call off the historic meeting.
President Trump must be willing to confront #Putin from a position of strength & demonstrate there will be a price to pay for his ongoing aggression. If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the #HelsinkiSummit should not move forward. https://t.co/HRfmgKTk0e

GOP Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) on Friday said that if President Trump isn’t prepared to hold Russian President Vladimir Putin “accountable” for aggression toward the U.S. then he should cancel their meeting next week.
“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. If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward,” McCain said in a statement.
Old Blood and Guts’ press release is HERE:
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on the indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for interfering in the 2016 presidential election:
“Today’s indictment is a result of the hard work of America’s law enforcement and intelligence officials who dedicate their lives to bringing to justice those who wish to do us harm. These revelations add to a body of evidence confirming an extensive plot by Vladimir Putin’s government to attack the 2016 election, sow chaos and dissension among the American electorate, and undermine faith in our democracy. And despite repeated warnings from our nation’s top intelligence and military leaders, the Kremlin’s efforts to weaken our institutions have continued unabated with insufficient action taken by the administration or Congress to strengthen our cyber defenses, safeguard our election systems, and deter further destabilizing activities.
“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. If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward.”
Whether McCain is well enough to have written it is unknown but his name still carries immense clout.
Even on his deathbed, the embittered old bastard is fighting Trump and will do so until he sucks in his final breath.
