Sen. John McCain said Sunday he sees no evidence that Russia's interference in the U.S. election would have altered the outcome of the Nov. 8 vote that elected Donald Trump to the White House.

In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," the Arizona Republican said a select committee, however, has to "get to the bottom of this" and investigate the CIA's finding that Russia hacked Democrats' emails in a bid to help Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.

"I've seen no evidence the election would have been different," he said. "But that doesn't change the fact that the Russians and others — Chinese to a lesser degree — have been able to interfere with our electoral process…"

"This is serious business," McCain said. "If they are able to harm the electoral process, then they destroy democracy... "

"This is the sign of a possible unraveling of the world order that was established after World War II, which has made one of the most peaceful periods in the history of the world," McCain added.

"We're starting to see the strains and the unraveling of it, and that is because of the absolute failure of American leadership."

He mocked President Barack Obama's response to the hack attack

"I'm sure that when Vladimir Putin was told quote 'cut it out' unquote, I'm sure that Vladimir Putin immediately stopped all cyber activities," he said. "The truth is, they are hacking every single day."
