”Sen. John McCain was a presidential candidate in 2008 and asked Vitaly Churkin, a Russian ambassador to the U.N., to donate to his campaign, according to Wikileaks.
Fast forward to 2016 and John McCain is now accusing Russia of hacking and meddling in U.S. politics. Even though, McCain solicited Russia to interfere in the 2008 campaign by asking for money.
What makes it even more bizarre is that Ambassador Churkin died suddenly on Monday. According to NBC News, his death is suspicious.
“We have received a letter from Senator John McCain requesting financial contribution to his Presidential campaign.”
“In this connection we would like to reiterate that Russian officials, the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations or the Russian Government do not finance political activity in foreign countries.””
