John McCain likens ‘Comey Memo’ to Watergate ‘size and scale’

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) added his voice to the chaos Tuesday in the wake of a New York Times report on an alleged memo/personal notation made by ex-FBI Director James Comey.

“We’ve seen this movie before,” McCain told 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.

The comments are the harshest yet from the GOP side of the aisle and come as some Democrats are openly calling for President Donald Trump impeachment over the “Comey Memo.”

Rep. Al Green (D-TX) did so on the House floor Tuesday morning.

McCain has been a bitter anti-Trump voice from the Republican Party as the six-term senator and 2008 GOP nominee for president has regularly echoed the talking points of the leftist media on Russian interference.

The opposition to Trump became more heated after Trump’s comment on McCain’s time as a Vietnam POW. “Never Trump” commentator Bill Kristol even called for McCain to intervene as an independent candidate on the eve of the 2016 Republican National Convention.
