“The View” cohost Meghan McCain went after former FBI director James Comey on Monday for “settling scores” in his new book.
In “A Higher Loyalty,” Comey mocks President Donald Trump’s appearance and admits that his investigation into the Clinton email scandal was swayed by politics. McCain bashed Comey for the book and his subsequent interview with ABC’s George Stephanopolous on Sunday night.
McCain started her criticism by slamming Comey’s reliance on the Steele dossier, which she notes was paid for by Trump’s opponents and remains largely unverified.
“We’re trying to get to the bottom of what really happened here and is there any criminal activity with Russia,” she said. “I will say, he’s talking about every decision with Hillary Clinton being made because of politics.”
“Candidates winning elections should make no difference in your decision as the head of the FBI whatsoever,” McCain asserted to audience applause.
“This just seems like he’s settling scores,” she continued. “He clearly loves the media, and that’s fine if you want to do what we do, but not if you’re the head of the FBI.”
