Excerpt from The Daily Wire
Written by Hank Berrien
Former UN Ambassador John Bolton, who sees foreign affairs with steely-eyed reality glasses, told radio host Mark Levin that conservatives who are suddenly embracing Russia's Vladimir Putin as an ally are making a big mistake, commenting that Putin is only concerned about his national interests, and they often conflict with American interests.
Levin began by asking, “Don’t you find this affection for Putin among many conservatives as bizarre?”
I don’t understand it. He pursues Russian national interests; he has no illusions about what he’s doing. When they coincide with American interests, I’m happy to cooperate with him. But when they don’t, and that’s very frequent, I think we need to oppose them vigorously. If, in fact, these allegations of Russian efforts to meddle in our election are true, I think they deserve a very strong response, as have, by the way, the last eight years of Russian, Chinese, and other cyber-warfare efforts to interfere in America deserved a response that they haven’t gotten from Barack Obama.
