    Republican lawmakers were left shaking their heads after President Trump’s Monday’s press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin, in which Trump declined to endorse the American intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.) called it “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory” and a “tragic mistake” in a statement. “No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant,” McCain said. “The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate.” House speaker Paul Ryan also...

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., blasted President Trump for his comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin Monday afternoon, and called it "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president" in his lifetime. . . . “Coming close on the heels of President Trump’s bombastic and erratic conduct towards our closest friends and allies in Brussels and Britain, today’s press conference marks a recent low point in the history of the American Presidency," McCain said.

    President Trump faced harsh bipartisan criticism back home for his Helsinki press conference with Vladimir Putin on Monday, as lawmakers claimed the U.S. president missed a chance to "stand up" to the Russian president on election meddling. The U.S. president, for his part, called the summit with Putin "deeply productive." After Democrats for days called on him to nix the meeting in the wake of indictments against Russian officers for U.S. campaign hacking, Trump said he would "not make decisions on foreign policy in a futile effort to appease partisan critics." He cited progress on a range of issues, and...

    Sen. John McCain praised the Department of Justice's announcement of the indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for interfering in the 2016 presidential election, adding President Donald Trump shouldn't meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin unless he holds him accountable. "President Trump must be willing to confront Putin from a position of strength and demonstrate that there will be a serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression towards the United States and democracies around the world," the Arizona senator said in a statement Friday. "If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should...

    GOP Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) on Friday said that if President Trump isn't prepared to hold Russian President Vladimir Putin "accountable" for aggression toward the U.S. then he should cancel their meeting next week. "President Trump must be willing to confront Putin from a position of strength and demonstrate that there will be a serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression towards the United States and democracies around the world. If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward," McCain said in a statement.

    GOP Sen. John McCain blasted President Trump for his “disappointing” behavior at the NATO summit but assured the alliance that despite the president’s blistering comments, the United States stands solidly behind its longtime allies. “President Trump’s performance at the NATO summit in Brussels was disappointing, yet ultimately unsurprising. There is little use in parsing the president’s misstatements and bluster, except to say that they are the words of one man,” McCain, chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in a statement Thursday. “Americans, and their Congress, still believe in the transatlantic alliance … and it is clear that our...

    Anyone following the investigation of the Clinton campaign's attempt to frame Trump probably already knows that while the primary vector for the Clinton-Steele dossier, a document alleging Russian control over Trump created by the Clinton campaign and used as the basis for the FBI investigation, was Fusion GPS and its media and Dem allies, a secondary vector was McCain. Now it turns out that McCain had a different version of the Clinton-Steele dossier. Fusion GPS has discussed doing more work on the dossier afterward and it's likely that the version McCain had was a newer copy. It would explain why...

    The U.S. Navy dedicated one of its guided missile destroyers to Sen. John McCain on Thursday. The ship is one of the of two destroyers that were involved in fatal accidents last year in the Pacific. “Today, we add the story of Senator John S. McCain to the spirit of the mighty vessel which already carries the legacy of his father and grandfather,” Navy Secretary Richard Spencer said of the honor in a press release. “As a warrior and a statesman who has always put country first, Sen. John McCain never asked for this honor, and he would never seek...

You are 82 years old, you have spent 36 years in Washington DC and 23 years in the Navy (27 if you include the four years at the Naval Academy) -- You have earned to the right go out on your terms, certainly, but the party and your country needs your selfless commitment and devotion one last time.

    The first-time feat offers a tiny glimmer of hope for saving the northern white rhinocerosThe nearly extinct northern white rhino may not be completely lost. For the first time, rhinoceros embryos have been made in the lab. Scientists injected preserved sperm from a male northern white rhino into eggs of female southern white rhinos, a closely related subspecies. The embryos were incubated until the cells begin to differentiate, a stage at which they can be implanted into a surrogate mother, researchers report July 4 in Nature Communications. The new feat is “one of the really crucial steps” to eventually producing...

ABC News analyst Alex Castellanos told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Arizona’s Morning News, “There’s some word that if McCain is not able to vote and his vote is needed, he might resign and let someone appoint a senator who would support this judge.”

    MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski comment on President Trump mocking John McCain and George H.W. Bush to the delight of crowds at his rallies: JOE: Mika, we can talk about Donald Trump. We have. But, again, at what point is there decency in the crowd where people stop cheering when he mocks a man who has brain cancer and who is -- again, fighting for his life? A losing struggle for his life. Or George H.W. Bush. A man who fought in World War II. Was shot down by the Japanese, served America overseas as ambassador...

    In a post on her now-defunct blog, MSNBC anchor Joy Ann Reid attacked CNN’s Wolf Blitzer for treating Jewish guests with too much understanding. Blitzer is a “former flak for the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC),” reads the post from July 16, 2006. “He doesn’t even try to hide his affinity for his Israeli guests, or his partisanship for their cause, while turning instantly to prosecutorial mode when questioning any guest who has the dumb luck to be an Arab or Muslim in King Blitzer’s court,” Reid continues. “It’s actually quite stunning how brazen Blitzer’s bias has become.” In...

    I am deeply sorry that John McCain is gravely ill. I have prayed for him. I will continue to do so. But I have a question. McCain has claimed throughout his political career, especially in recent years, that “country first” is his guiding principle. It was even his campaign slogan when he was the Republican nominee in 2008. At the time the emphasis in using the slogan was that he would do what was best for the country rather than what was best for this or that political party, and there is nothing wrong with that providing that what you...

Following his diagnosis, McCain left Washington and returned to his home...

    The Trump Administration has decided to rescind race based guidelines for admission to schools and colleges instituted by the Obama Administration. The new guidelines are the ones that were in place during the George W. Bush Administration and they are race neutral. A U.S. District Judge has rejected a prosecution motion to reconsider her dismissal of charges against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, two of his sons and another key defendant who were accused in connection with the April 2014 standoff near Bundy Ranch northeast of Las Vegas. Judge Gloria Navarro reaffirmed her January mistrial with prejudice ruling that there was...

    Republicans theoretically have a 51-49 majority in the Senate, but in practice, it has been 50-49, since John McCain has left the Senate due to his brain cancer and shows no signs of returning. This makes it difficult for the Senate to pass legislation, of course, but since the Senate needs 60 votes for most matters, McCain's absence is not critical. ...except for judicial nominees. Under current rules, only a majority of senators is needed to approve judicial nominees. That's why every senator counts. With McCain's absence, if one Republican senator defects, and no Democrats support Trump's Supreme Court nominee,...
