John McCain Responds After Getting Roasted on Twitter Over Comey Statements

John McCain has released a statement after his line of questioning was called into question during the James Comey Senate Intelligence Committee today.

“In the case of Hillary Clinton, you made the statement that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to bring a suit against her, although it had been very careless in their behavior, but you did reach a conclusion in that case that it was not necessary to further pursue her,” his questioning began. “Yet at the same time, in the case of Mr. (Trump), you said that there was not enough information to make a conclusion. Tell me the difference between your conclusion as far as former secretary Clinton is concerned, and Mr. Trump.”

Throughout the questioning, Senator McCain looked sometimes confused and frustrated, and referred to Comey as “President Comey” in one instance. On Twitter, users began questioning McCain’s health, and there was some poking fun at the Senator.

I get the sense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people’s heads. Maybe going forward I shouldn’t stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games.

What I was trying to get at was whether Mr. Comey believes that any of his interactions with the President rise to the level of obstruction of justice. In the case of Secretary Clinton’s emails, Mr. Comey was willing to step beyond his role as an investigator and state his belief about what ‘no reasonable prosecutor’ would conclude about the evidence. I wanted Mr. Comey to apply the same approach to the key question surrounding his interactions with President Trump—whether or not the President’s conduct constitutes obstruction of justice. While I missed an opportunity in today’s hearing, I still believe this question is important, and I intend to submit it in writing to Mr. Comey for the record.”

    Leave McCain alone. He’s the only Republican that isn’t supporting Donald’s lies. He is a patriot and wants the truth revealed for the people.

    I agree , we are all going to get old someday if we’re lucky,
    it’s is sad to seem him in that state, lately Lindsey Gramn who I would have argued was another good one is slipping, with Mike Rogers gone it’s as if good republican have no voice and the Idiocy of the Teabaggers has destroyed the party, sad sad time for America, not to mention the Orange Orifice in the Oval Office. this sucks big time!

    I think he might just be ill as in early onset Alzheimer, such a sad day for a one of the great political thinkers of all time .

    He’d probably be the first to say being a war hero does not exempt him from being ribbed for the rest of his life.

    McCain is getting his ass kicked today. He should seriously consider retiring to his ranch in Sedona.
