McCain warns against Russian overtures, a day after Trump, Putin talk

Sen. Lindsey Graham is calling upon the Senate to investigate allegations that Russian Federation hacked into the Democratic National Committee's emails in order to help Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.

"The bottom line is I think Donald Trump really does want to make a difference and the only way to make a difference is to bring us together", Graham told reporters late Tuesday in the U.S. Capitol.

Sen. John McCain (R - AZ), ever a foe of diplomacy, also spoke out to condemn normalization of ties with Russia, insisting that America is too great of a nation to end its support for regime change in Syria, adding that any improvement in Russian ties would amount to "complicity" in the Assad government's "butchery of the Syrian people".

In their first phone conversation on Monday, Putin and Trump agreed that bilateral relations "could not get any worse", Ushakov said.

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) are anxious about President-elect Donald Trump's desire to "reset" U.S. -Russia relations.

Russia's task is to neutralize any risks to national security, including information warfare, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday. But he warned that another "reset" of relations would make the USA complicit in Russia's "butchery of the Syrian people", among other crimes. Trump's office later said that they had discussed shared threats and challenges and the long-term relationship between them.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chair Bob Corker is decidedly less concerned, saying that basically this happens all the time.

"I won't vote for a bill that treats a grandmother and a drug dealer the same", Graham said about Trump's forthcoming immigration policy proposals on how to deal with the estimated 11 million in the country without legal status.

He said congressional hearings would include "Russia's misadventure throughout the world", including its military aggression in Eastern Europe and whether it committed war crimes in Syria.

McCain said to pay no heed to any more conciliatory language from Putin, who he blasted as a "former KGB agent who has plunged his country into tyranny, murdered his political opponents, invaded his neighbors, threatened America's allies, and attempted to undermine America's elections".
