John McCain is speaking out after charges were filed against three Trump campaign figures, in a Russian “collusion” investigation that brought to light his own involvement in an effort to recruit Russian intelligence agents into an anti-Trump smear campaign.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain said Tuesday he does not think the trio of charges filed in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller will be the last, and other lawmakers agreed.
“I guarantee you more shoes will drop,” McCain, R-Ariz., told reporters…
…McCain said he doesn’t know who Mueller might be targeting next.
“I don’t know,” he said. “But they always have and they always will. I guarantee you this scandal is not over.”…
…McCain declined to draw a direct comparison to the Watergate scandal, which led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. He said he does not believe Trump will try to remove Mueller.
“I think we’ve seen that movie before,” McCain said, referring to Nixon’s firing of the independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox that helped lead to the former president’s ouster.
McCain added that he never heard of Papadopoulos, who Trump identified as a “low-level volunteer.”
Funny how he danced around his own ties to Russia.
