Senator. John McCain, wrote a new book in which he mentioned that America should seriously consider a cyber-attack on Russia for meddling in the U.S elections. This will send a strong message to the super power.
The well-known Arizona Republican who is known for battling cancer, McCain wrote saying, “I’m of the opinion that unless Russian President Vladimir Putin is made to regret his decision he will return to the scene of the crime again and again.”
The book titled “The Restless Wave” scheduled for release on the 22nd of May also mentions the accusation that Russia may have compromising material related to United States President Donald Trump and confirms that McCain has a reviewed copy of the Steele dossier.
The Steele dossier is an opposition researched by an ex-British spy which includes scandalous allegations about Trump and his alleged ties to Russia. McCain added saying, “To make Putin deeply regret his assault on the foundation of our democracy — free and fair elections — we should seriously consider retaliating with the kinds of weapons he used.”
“We have cyber capabilities too. They should be used to expose the epic scale of his regime’s corruption or to embarrass Putin in other ways,” McCain wrote.
McCain claimed that it’s time for America to go on an information war with Russia. McCain announced in his book excepts earlier that he will not be running for re-election when his current teal expires. He has also been very critical of Trump since he took control of the office last year, mainly for not dealing with the Russian threat harshly enough.
McCain says, “I worry we are at a turning point, a hinge of history, and the decisions made tomorrow might be closing the door on the era of the American-led world order. I hope not, and it certainly isn’t too late. But my time in that fight has concluded.”
