Sen. John McCain recently said that Russia’s Vladimir Putin poses a bigger threat to the U.S. than the Islamic State. Brad Staggs was inclined to disagree, but researcher Jason Buttrill’s expert opinion is that McCain is right. They took a look at the Russian threat while hosting Tuesday’s “Pat & Stu.”

“I think [Putin] is the premier and most important threat — more so than ISIS,” McCain said in a recent interview.

“McCain is absolutely correct,” Jason said on Tuesday’s show. While we should never underestimate ISIS as a force of destruction, Russia is an insidious threat that is working to undermine the foundation of American government. Putin and Russian hackers worked to interfere with the U.S. 2016 election and attempted similar influence in the French presidential election as well.

“Russia has for the first time in, I think, decades changed the map in Europe,” Buttrill noted, detailing how Russia illegally took over Crimea and used terror tactics in eastern Ukraine.
