Video: Senator McCain returns to U.S. Naval Academy to speak with midshipmen


US LIVE AT ANNAPOLIS SOME MORE OF WHAT THE SENATOR HAD TO SAY TODAY IN A DIFFICULT POLITICAL CLIMATE. VANESS THE MIDSHIPMEN I SPOKE WITH TELL ME THEY STAY OUT OF POLITICS AND FOCUS ON COMPLETING WHATEVER MISSION IS ASSIGNED. STILL, ONE OF THEIR CLASSMATES WANTED TO GET SENATOR MCCAIN’ OPINION ON THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION. GATHERED AT THE REQUEST OF U.S. SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN, NAVAL ACADEMY MIDSHIPMEN GOT TO PICK — GOT INSIGHT. ALTHOUGH SOME MIDSHIPMEN TELL ME THEY STAY OUT OF POLITICS ONE COULDN’T RESIST ASKING MCCAIN FOR HIS INSIGHT ON THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN THE INVESTIGATION INTO RUSSIA’S MEDDLING IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTAL ELECTION. THE ARIZONA LAWMAKER TOLD THOSE IN THE PACKED AUDITORIUM THAT THERE’S, QUOTE, NO DOUBT THAT RUSSIANS TRIED TO INTERFERE WITH THE ELECTION ADDING THAT HE HASN’T SEEN ANY EVIDENCE THAT THEY EFECTED THE OUTCOME OF ANY STATE ELECTIONS.>>THE MORE WE KNOW, THE MORE WE KNOW. THERE WILL BE MORE. I HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE. IT IS A CENTIPEDE. EVERY FEW DAYS AND OTHER SHOE DROPS. THE LATEST NEWS TODAY, THESE INDICTMENTS, I COULD’VE PREDICTED MONTHS AGO. VANESSA: MCCAIN SAYS CYBER WARFARE IS WILL REAL AND DEFENDING THE COUNTRY IS VITAL.>>I AM VERY WORRIED THAT WE DO NOT HAVE THE STRATEGY TO DEFEAT THESE ATTACKS. VANESS MCCAIN, ALONG WITH HIS GRANDFATHER, DAD AND SON ALL ATTENDED THE U.S. NAVAL ACADEMY. HE GOT CHOKED UP TALKING ABOUT LESSONS LEARNED.>>LESSONS ABOUT COURAGE AND HUMILITY, ABOUT FRIENDSHIP, ABOUT THE MEANING AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF HONOR.>>I AM THANKFUL TO BE HERE. BE IN THE STEPS OF JOHN MCCAI WHERE I CAN DEVELOP MYSELF AS A LEADER AND PREPARED TO LEAD SAILORS AND MARINES.>>IT IS ASTOUNDING THE AMOUNT OF DEDICATION AND SELFLESSNESS HE HAS. WE ARE HONORED TO HEAR FROM HIM TONIGHT. VANESS SENATOR MCCAIN ALSO TALKED ABOUT SERVING WITH HONOR, AND LEADERSHIP, DURING HIS ADDRESS. THE LAST TIME HE SPOKE HERE WAS IN MARCH 2012. LIVE IN ANNAPOLIS, VANESSA
