Considering Sen. John McCain was never a big fan of Trump’s, it’s no surprise that he joined the growing group of people alarmed by New York Times’ Tuesday report about an alleged memo from fired FBI Director James Comey.
“We’ve seen this movie before,” McCain said during an interview with CBS News’s Bob Schieffer. “I think it’s reaching the point where it’s of Watergate size and scale… it’s a centipede that the shoe continues to drop.”
“Every couple of days, there’s a new aspect of this really unhappy situation… None of us, no matter what our political leanings are, no matter how we feel about Trump, feel this is not good for America,” McCain added.
These have been the most critical comments from the Republicans as the Democrats have taken it further and are openly calling to impeach President Donald Trump over the “Comey Memo.”
According to a report from The Hill Wednesday, the Comey Memo has caused Republicans to rethink attaching their legislative agenda to Trump.
McCain has long voiced his concerns over Russia’s influence over the 2016 presidential election and voiced his dismay when FBI Director James Comey was fired by President Donald Trump.
