Michael McFaul pointed out ( about President Trump ) : "Even on small issues of little relevance to American national interests, Trump sides with Putin. Why is Trump defending the Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan? Why is Trump expressing fear that the Montenegrins might spark World War III? These are Putin lines.

Michael McFaul said ( about Hillary Rodham Clinton ) : “I am relieved there were no conspiracy charges, as that would have triggered a major crisis in our country. ... That’s good news,” “At the same time, [Trump Jr.] also made a mistake in meeting with the Russian delegation in June 2016 to seek kompromat on [2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary] Clinton from a foreign government.

Michael McFaul replied ( about Secretary Clinton ) : “They were thinking that their work was helping Trump to win. WikiLeaks, their data dump, the conversation about the emails, and linking it to the 30,000 missing emails that president, then candidate Trump did very deliberately—that was all part of a negative messaging against Secretary Clinton, and the Russians played the instrumental role in that. Without the Russians, that wouldn’t have happened. When they heard that, I think they’re thinking, ‘Oh, our strategy has been working here.’” External link
