    Calling his line of questioning during former FBI Director James Comeyís June 8 testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee ďa colossal screw-up,Ē Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said he got distracted by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) just minutes before it was his turn to question Comey. McCain told Esquire that a staffer had given him an iPhone with an email from Graham displayed on it, asking McCain to ask Comey some additional questions. McCain didnít have the password for the iPhone and claimed that after the phone went black he couldnít unlock it to keep reading. ďI was looking...

    With the shot clock about to expire, Republicans on Capitol Hill may have the ball in their hands again for another chance at what was supposed to be an easy lay-up. Yesterday, Sen. John McCain ‚ÄĒ who stuck a stake through the heart of the previous ObamaCare repeal effort ‚ÄĒ announced that he would endorse the only vehicle left remaining. McCain even said that he‚Äôd put aside his distaste for operating outside regular order to vote for the Lindsey Graham-Bill Cassidy version of repeal-and-replace: Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Wednesday that he supports a newer version of an ObamaCare...

    The Left is melting down over President Trumpís righteous pardoning of former Sheriff Joe Arpaio It isnít surprising that the Left is having a meltdown over President Trumpís pardoning of former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio (R). Leftist activists who worship cop-killers Mumia Abu Jamal and Assata Shakur and rage about wrongful convictions and ďemptying the prisonsĒ would love nothing more than to fill those same prison cells with wrongfully convicted law enforcement officials.

    The strange and fascinating world of the British spy known as ĎChris Whatsití was unravelling yesterday. Christopher Steele was once MI6ís top spy on Russian affairs and lived in the shadows until being unmasked as the alleged author of the Ďdirty dossierí on Donald Trump. He was dubbed ĎChris Whatsití by his late wife on their first date because she could not remember his name Ė but he revelled in being a man of mystery. Now the 52-year-old is hoping to return to anonymity after fleeing his £1.5million home in Surrey, telling his neighbour to look after his three cats....

John McCain on Thursday unveiled a plan to increase U.S. air and ground forces in Afghanistan that would probably bring some American soldiers closer into harmís way ó a move that in effect rebukes President Trump, who has not yet decided on his preferred way forward in the war. McCain (R-Ariz.) promised to present his plan as an amendment to the annual defense authorization bill, upon his return to Washington in September.

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Republican candidates with their eyes on a White House run may be seriously considering the prospect of challenging President Donald Trump in 2020 because they "see weakness," The Hill reported Saturday. "They see weakness in this president," McCain told The New York Times. "Look, it's not a nice business we're in." The Times reported Saturday that Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Ben Sasse of Nebraska, GOP Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and even Vice President Mike Pence could be laying the groundwork for a White House run in 2020. McCain hasn't been shy about...

    Jim Acosta voids his bladder at yet another White House Press Briefing, hilarity ensues. Ė The Fake News Networkís petulant and preening Jim Acosta provided yet another prime example of why he and CNN should be banned from future White House press briefings yesterday. As Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller was discussing the details of the Raise Act, a piece of legislation that would modify the terms of legal immigration into the U.S., Acosta, without being called upon, constantly interrupted the speaker and engaged him in a debate in which he implied that the poem on the Statue of Liberty...

    Sen. John McCain pronounced President Trump's objections to the sweeping sanctions measure he signed Thursday "misplaced" and said it was "critical" that Mr. Trump comply with and implement the act, as signed. "The concerns expressed in the President's signing statement are hardly surprising, though misplaced," McCain said in a statement soon after the president signed a bill which limits his ability to unilaterally alter sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea. The Arizona senator also took the opportunity to take a stand for the powers of Congress, which rival the president's. "The Framers of our Constitution made the Congress and...

    Okay, people...before John McCain dies and the ridiculous "tributes" to the man make me vomit, let's remember what McCain's real legacy is: His father was the Admiral in charge of the Pacific fleet prosecuting the war in Vietnam Nam. Because of this McCain got preferential treatment in the Navy. He was allowed to become a Navy pilot. But he was a terrible pilot. McCain crashed two navy Jets in his early career. Then while aboard the Aircraft Carrier USS Forrestal, McCain got angry because he had to wait in line to take off on a bombing run. He shut off...

    Last night, Senator McCain cast the deciding vote to kill the ďskinnyĒ version of a proposed health care bill. Notice how he explains it as a failure of process, not a problem with the bill itself: ďIíve stated time and time again that one of the major failures of Obamacare was that it was rammed through Congress by Democrats on a strict-party line basis without a single Republican vote. We should not make the mistakes of the past that has led to Obamacareís collapse, including in my home state of Arizona where premiums are skyrocketing and health care providers are...

    For Republicans and our country, turnabout is not fair play. Senator John McCain waited two years to get his revenge against Donald Trump for saying that McCain is not a war hero. But with a giant middle finger ó or more precisely a thumb ó McCain, perhaps assuming that heíll never run for election again, showed Donald Trump that repealing and replacing Obamacare would not be the ďso easyĒ venture that the great ďdeal-makerĒ promised. I understand that these two men donít like each other. I understand that revenge is a dish best served cold. But by looking to hurt...

    Sen. John McCain of Arizona criticized President Donald Trump's announcement Wednesday morning that transgender individuals will not be allowed to serve "in any capacity" in the US military. McCain, who is the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and served in the US Navy for 23 years, said Trump's statement was "unclear" and it served as "yet another example of why major policy announcements should not be made via Twitter." The Republican senator said any Americans who meet the military's medical and readiness standards should be allowed to continue serving. "There is no reason to force service members who...

At a hearing this morning, Senate Judiciary members will receive testimony that Fusion GPS helped advocate the interests of corrupt Russian and Venezuelan officials while hiding its foreign work from federal authorities. Many in the media have focused on whether Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort would testify publicly at the hearing. Less well covered has been anything to do with Fusion GPS, the...
