John McCain: Trump Scandals ‘Reaching Watergate Size And Scale’

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) just used the W word when talking about the growing scandals surrounding President Donald Trump.

Weve seen this movie before. Its reaching Watergate size and scale, he said at a Republican event on Tuesday night, according to GOP strategist Ana Navarro.This is not good for the country.

However, despite the Watergate comparison, McCain also said he was against appointing a special prosecutor, according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman.

McCain was speaking to Bob Schieffer of CBS News at the International Republican Institute dinner hours after news broke that Trump reportedly asked James Comey, who was FBI director at the time, to drop his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

According to the Daily Beast,Schieffer asked McCain what advice he would give to Trump.

The senator told the formerFace the Nation host that he would tell the president the same thing that you advised Richard Nixon, which he didnt do … get it all out … its not going to be over until every aspect of it is thoroughly examinedand the American people make a judgment. And the longer you delay, the longer its going to last.

McCain also called Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov an old KGB apparatchik stooge.

Lavrov was in the Oval Office last week with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak when Trump reportedly shared highly classified information, according to a Washington Post article Monday.
