Senator John McCain remained true to his anti-Trump RINO ways by slamming the president for firing FBI Director James Comey.

McCain said he’s “disappointed” that Comey—an Obama appointee—was fired, and fueled the liberal media narrative that the firing was related to the FBI investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia (for which there is still NO evidence).

“While the President has the legal authority to remove the Director of the FBI, I am disappointed in the President’s decision to remove James Comey from office,” McCain said in a statement.

“James Comey is a man of honor and integrity, and he has led the FBI well in extraordinary circumstances. I have long called for a special congressional committee to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The president’s decision to remove the FBI Director only confirms the need and the urgency of such a committee.”

It’s not surprising that McCain speaks glowingly of Comey, who has donated to his political campaign. This isn’t the first time the Arizona senator has undermined President Trump and publicly bashed him.

In February, McCain shamelessly brown-nosed the media and bleated the Democratic talking point comparing Trump to a dictator.

Interestingly, McCain’s longtime pal, Senator Lindsey Graham, supported Trump’s decision, saying the country and the FBI need a “fresh start.”

President Trump and others pointed out that many liberals who are now outraged by Comey’s firing had demanded that he be fired several months ago, when they blamed him for Hillary Clinton’s election loss.

Others noted that it was John McCain who had leaked the bogus, unverified dossier claiming Russia had compromising information on Donald Trump.

The now-discredited dossier kick-started the Trump/Russia investigation, even though most of the claims were unsubstantiated and have since been debunked.
