MSN: “Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham pushed Sunday for greater sanctions against Russia for trying to influence the U.S. election and said president elect Donald Trump is in danger of being in conflict with congressional Republicans if he doesn’t get tougher on Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The two senators, in a joint interview on Meet the Press, also said the U.S. intelligence community’s evidence of Russian interference during the American presidential campaign is overwhelming, and that Trump should accept those findings.”
Graham: “You can’t go on with your life as a democracy when a foreign entity is trying to compromise the election process. So Mr. president elect, it is very important that you show leadership here. Let me say this: if after having been briefed by intelligence leaders, Donald Trump is still unsure as to what the Russians did, that would be incredibly unnerving to me because the evidence is overwhelming.”
Trump on Twitter recently: “I am asking the chairs of the House and Senate committees to investigate top secret intelligence shared with NBC prior to me seeing it.”
“Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only ‘stupid’ people, or fools, would think it is bad!”
