Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Democrats meddled with former Sen. Joe Lieberman's chances of becoming FBI Director in the wake of President Donald Trump's firing of James Comey.
McCain said that the Democrats' opposition to Lieberman stopped him from being selected for the post after the Trump Administration signaled that he was on the shortlist.
"My Democratic colleagues clearly did [kill Lieberman's chances]," McCain told reporters Wednesday, according to CNN. "This is their nominee for vice president of the United States. If anything would make you cynical about this town, that's it."
Lieberman was indeed the Democratic vice presidential nominee alongside Al Gore in 2000, but later became an independent in 2006 and eventually endorsed McCain, a close friend, in 2008 which upset Democrats.....

they also killed #SethRich
McCain left the Republican Party a long time ago.
He should just pick out a casket and get ready to lay in it.
MCCAIN: Pals before Principle
What could have been.
The Progs in the GOP and Dems count their lucky stars that they are so ruthless in defamation, cynical nihilism and moral bankruptcy when it comes to Sarah.
Oh well, they should have been more careful what they wished for, because with Trump, they are getting worse, far, far worse.
I saw a report that said President Trump was retaining Leiberman’s Law Firm to represent him in the Russia Investigation. So the whole “candidate for FBI Director” was a cover story.
What a nut job, wacko-bird....
In addition to his other qualities McTraitor is a moron. The Rats didn’t kill Leibermin’s chances, jeez he supported the witch. He could have been the best the Rats could hope for. In the meantime that Rat bastard McCabe is still at the helm so much for an acceptable interim being named. I really don’t think Trump sees how much danger he is in. Flame me if you want but it doesn’t look like he knows.
The Republicans are in the majority. Who cares about the Democrats?
>>Pick a party and stay in it John.<<
He is in the WTF party.
No real platform but a surprised and negative reaction to everything that happens around them.
McCain gives Marbles a bad name.
Good! Now they need to kill your chances of staying on any committees whatsoever, McNuts.
>>The Republicans are in the majority. Who cares about the Democrats?<<
Well, the Ds have their guy in McCain.
Odd, because I’m hearing McCain is ‘ ‘ close to being censured before he can jump party.
He probably should have picked Pawlenty. Pawlenty would not have brought attention to himself, but McCain. He would have been a safe choice, but that was then.
Yeah, for once the Democrats did something right. Leave it to John McCain to always be on the opposite side.
As much as I despise Obama, I am glad McCain was never president. I think he would have been even worse. Cannot believe I even think that.
