Leahy comments on White House aide mocking Senator John McCain

  • John McCain 81 is at home in Arizona battling brain cancer. A White House aide on Thursday mocked his illness

The Hill first reported Thursday that Sadler said during a private meeting that McCain's opposition to President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump issues disaster declaration for Hawaii volcano damage Giuliani biographer: He's "a drama machine" Trump attacks media after reports of Cohen deal with AT&T MORE's nominee to become Central Intelligence Agency director, Gina Haspel, "doesn't matter" because "he's dying anyway".

Sen. John McCain's daughter denounced two people Friday who made comments critical of her ailing father this week.

"I'm not going to validate a leak out of an internal staff meeting one way or the other", she said.

The next day, Meghan McCain said on The View that she was shocked Sadler was still employed by the White House.

A White House spokesman did not dispute the report and said, "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time".

"John McCain is a genuine hero - a man of valor whose sacrifices for his country are immeasurable". But let's look at this in context, that was said in a private meeting, inside the White House.

Flake is retiring this year, so Arizona voters are deciding this fall who will replace him, so another election could determine which party will continue to represent the state, but at least one Republican could remain in office until 2020 if a person is appointed by Ducey, also a Republican, to replace McCain.

World Health Organization hopes to deploy vaccine after fresh Ebola outbreak in DR Congo
Despite the remote location, one worrying sign is that the outbreak involves three separate locations that cover about 37 miles. A new experimental vaccine has been shown to be highly effective against the virus, though quantities are now limited.

McCain, 81, is battling brain cancer.

A steady stream of visitors have stopped by the McCain family ranch in Arizona - including Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of NY, on Friday. "Because of him, we're going to do our best to the job he would want us to do which is to make sure we can authorize legislation for the forces and do it in a bipartisan, principled way", Reed said.

Haspel faced grilling Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee about her role overseeing some CIA operations after the September 11 attacks.

During the presidential campaign in 2015, then-candidate Trump - who received multiple academic and medical deferments to avoid the draft during the Vietnam War - said McCain was only considered a war hero "because he was captured", adding "I like people who weren't captured". "I stand with Kelly Sadler", she said, according to Axios.

Last July, McCain became the deciding vote against the GOP health care repeal with a dramatic thumbs-down.

She was on the assembly standing on the different facet of the room and didn't apologize for the remark, based on folks within the room.

Spokeswoman Sanders, however, disputed the idea that the president had set a tone at the top that encouraged derogatory comments like Sadler's.
