Sen. John McCain on Trump administration scandals: 'We've seen this movie before'

If the FBI's ongoing investigation ultimately reaches the definitive conclusion that the Trump campaign did not work with Russian Federation to meddle in last year's election - and if journalists feel confident that Trump's hand-picked replacement for James Comey finished the probe with integrity - then, at that point, the press will "accept this idea that there was no collusion". At around 2:30 a.m., the burglars, three of them Cuban nationals, were arrested by three plain-clothed police officers.

"The big difference between Trump and Nixon [is that] Nixon was far more disciplined", says Small.

The newspaper reported on Monday that Mr Trump had revealed sensitive information, possibly endangering a source when he met with Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak last week. But for now, at least, McCain's invocation of Watergate is a significant rhetorical shift in Washington, where the Republican Party has tried to stand by Trump through a series of embarrassing and ugly scandals.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) responded Tuesday to the multiple scandals that have embroiled President Donald Trump's White House in just the first few months of the administration, the most recent of which The New York Times chronicled in a report published Tuesday.

Republican Sen. John McCain said the scandals swirling around President Trump are rising to "Watergate-size and scale".

Even Mitch McConnell hopped on-board the "Chastise Trump" train, by calling for a "little less drama from the White House". "I have people brief me on great intel every day", he reportedly said.

Rep. Al Green (D-TX) did so on the House floor Tuesday morning. Senator Mark Warner told Fox News on Sunday that Trump's dismissal of James Comey "sure seems to have reverberations of past history". President Donald Trump may not yet realize the seriousness of Comey's allegations against him, but experts believe that the crime of obstruction of justice has been committed. The Dow was less than 1 percent away from a record as of Tuesday's close before the latest Trump bombshell hit.

"The Obama administration, the Bush administration: they would leak but they actually sought to impose great discipline on messaging and to contain the internal deliberations and speak with one voice - but this White House speaks with a million voices". "This is not a time for Republicans to hide, and I also don't think it's a time for Democrats to exploit".

Some Republicans are voicing support for President Donald Trump following a report that the president asked James Comey to stop an FBI investigation.

He told the graduates that they will find that "things are not always fair". "They think they can engage in the same sort of suppression of protest and free speech that they engage in in Turkey", he added.
