McCain: Russia Probe Has Reached the Scandal Stage

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said the recent actions of the White House including President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey and telling the Russian foreign minister that Comey’s firing took off pressure had reached the “stage of scandal.”

McCain said, “With the appointment of Mr. Mueller, we are now at that stage of a scandal. And now the question is how is it handled. Is it handled the way Watergate was where drip, drip, drip with every day, more and more? Or do we handle it like Ronald Reagan handled Iran-Contra? It was a scandal. He fired people. He went on national television and said we made mistakes, we did wrong, and we’re not going to do it again and the American people let him move forward.”
