Sen. John McCain turned up the rhetoric on embattled President Donald Trump on Tuesday night, saying the building scandals that have put his White House in turmoil are now “Watergate size and scale.”
McCain, R-Ariz., made the comments, which were first reported by the news website The Daily Beast, at a dinner in Washington, D.C., in which he accepted the International Republican Institute’s Freedom Award.
“I think we’ve seen this movie before. I think it appears at a point where it’s of Watergate size and scale. … The shoes continue to drop, and every couple days there’s a new aspect,” McCain was quoted as saying by the Daily Beast.
