Arizona Senator John McCain has never seen a war he didn’t like. But the establishment Republican has also gone all-in with the Democrat Party’s recent Cold War paranoia.
Taking a break from criticizing Donald Trump, today McCain accused conservative Kentucky Senator Rand Paul of “working for Vladimir Putin.”
The controversy erupted on the Senate floor today over a proposed ratification of a treaty which would allow Montenegro to join NATO. “If there is objection you are…achieving the objectives of trying to dismember this small country” McCain barked, saying that by blocking the ratification Paul is working for “the desires and ambitions of Vladimir Putin.”
Putin, and some American conservatives, each oppose Montenegro’s involvement in NATO but on completely different grounds.
In a statement, Paul countered that the U.S. Military is now active in over a dozen countries and that further pledges to protect foreign governments are unwise given our country’s 20 million dollar debt.
