John McCain took his war against President Trump to the next level.
He’s repeatedly betrayed Trump in a scheme to sink his Presidency.
Now the anti-Trump RINO stabbed the President in the back with one massive lie.
McCain is one of the loudest voices in claiming that Russia “meddled” in the 2016 election.
He’s repeated – without citing evidence – that Russia was responsible for the cyberattacks on the Democrats during the campaign.
But McCain really lost it when, during the President’s trip to Asia, Trump detailed how Vladimir Putin insisted that Russia was not behind the attacks.
McCain – as well as the anti-Trump so-called “mainstream” media – falsely claimed that Trump said he believed that Russia did not meddle in the election.
The anti-Trump RINO senator attacked Trump’s patriotism and smeared Trump as a dupe for the Kremlin.
There's nothing "America First" about taking the word of KGB colonel over US intelligence community. There's no "principled realism" in cooperating w/ Russia to prop up murderous Assad regime. To believe otherwise is naive & places nat'l security at risk. https://t.co/SYiVHtHXPX

But what the President said tells a completely different story.
Fox News reports:
“He said he didn’t meddle,” Trump afterward told reporters, aboard Air Force One. “He said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times. I just asked him again. He said he absolutely did not meddle in our election. He did not do what they are saying he did.”
Putin’s words contradict U.S. intelligence community claims that Russia indeed tried to influence the election’s outcome — amid evidence that suggests Russian operatives hacked emails from Democratic Party leaders and tried to sway U.S. voters by purchasing ads of social media.
“Every time he sees me he says, ‘I didn’t do that,’ and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it. But he says, ‘I didn’t do that.’ I think he is very insulted by it, which is not a good thing for our country,” also said Trump, who deflected answering a direct question about whether he believed Putin’s denial.”
All Trump said was that he thinks Putin means what he said and is not trying to put one over on him.
No evidence has been presented to tie Moscow to the email hacks.
Law enforcement never examined the DNC servers.
Only a private company hired by the Democrats investigated their servers.
Skepticism of this story is warranted even if Trump later stated he agrees with the intelligence community on Russian “meddling” in the election.
But McCain – as well as several news organizations – lied and spun Trump’s remarks to portray Trump as the 21st century version of Benedict Arnold.
