Michael McFaul quotes

That's not his job. His job is to represent his country here, and I think he does it fantastically well.feedback

He doesn't get as much credit as he should, in my view, for being savvy about developing relationships with people all over the city. He was constantly doing that when I was in the government. At times it would be frustrating to us.feedback

To not have the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at all National Security Council meetings I think is a huge mistake. You need that expertise at every meeting. And same with the director of National Intelligence.feedback

Obviously, Putin's not responding because he's waiting for Jan. 20. He's got these much more important objectives to him than getting into a tit-for-tat response with the outgoing administration.feedback

I think most importantly what the Obama administration did yesterday was to assign direct attribution with overwhelming evidence with who interfered in our election process. Usually in one of these instances, there's a tit-for-tat response. And even Foreign Minister [Sergey] Lavrov already had put together the names of diplomats to expel. But obviously President Putin has decided he's going to wait and deal with the next guy.feedback

I still have a hundred different questions about what happened and how the Obama administration responded to the intelligence that they received in real-time during the election. We can't just think of this as a bump in the road and move on.feedback

Modernization is quite different from expansion. Modernization is allowed under the New START treaty; expansion is not. Putin is smartly playing down the tweet because he has several concessions that he wants to secure from President Trump – lifting of sanctions, support for his war in Syria, recognition of Crimea as part of Russia – and therefore does not want to rock the boat right now by reacting to this vague Trump statement.feedback

For years now, the Kremlin has looked for ways to disrupt democracies, to help the people that they like to come to power and to undermine the credibility of the democratic process.feedback

He has had a vendetta against Hillary Clinton, that has been known for a long time because of what she said about his elections back in the parliamentary elections of 2011. He wants to discredit American democracy and make us weaker in terms of leading the liberal democratic order. And most certainly he likes President-elect Trump's views on Russia.feedback

It is most certainly consistent with the Putin that I have watched and used to work with when I was an ambassador and in the government.feedback

I am not sure those same skills qualify him to be secretary of state.feedback

The Russians are in an offensive mode and [the U.S. is] working on strategies to respond to that, and at the highest levels.feedback

In addition to the policy disagreements that they have, I think Putin himself sees some of Clinton's remarks as a personal attack against him and the way he governs his country and how he conducts his foreign policy.feedback

Even my colleagues at the White House would agree with that.feedback
