“I’ve seen no evidence they succeeded, but they tried and they are still trying to change elections.
“They just tried to affect the outcome of the French election. So I view Vladimir Putin — who has dismembered Ukraine, a sovereign nation, who is putting pressure on the Baltics — I view the Russians as the far greatest challenge that we have.”
He said the US needed to respond to Russia with sanctions.
“We have done nothing since the election last November to respond to Vladimir Putin’s attempt to change the outcome of our elections. So, way to go Vladimir. We haven’t responded at all,” he said.
“Hopefully when we get back from recess the Senate will enact sanctions on Russia.”
When it was put to him that some people feel nervous about international security with Mr Trump as President, Senator McCain said he understood why.
“I am nervous from time to time,” he said. “I do believe that the President has great confidence in the national security team. I do believe most of the time that he accepts their advice and counsel.
“Can I tell you that he does [that] all the time? No. Does it bother me? Yes, it bothers me.
“I don’t think there’s any doubt that this FBI issue and the whole issue of the Russians, it’s a scandal of significant proportions and it’s going to be with us for quite a while.
“I hope we can separate that issue and all its ramifications from the need for us to win in Mosul, to win in Afghanistan, win in Raqqa and beat back this threat to our nations’ national security, which we just saw a manifestation of the problem in Manchester.”
