Sadler was discussing McCain's opposition to Trump's pick for Central Intelligence Agency director, Gina Haspel, at a communications staff meeting on Thursday when she said that, "it doesn't matter" because "he's dying anyway", two people in the room confirmed to The Associated Press.

The magazine also reported that McCain provided "the name of his ship, the number of raids he had flown, his squadron number and the target of his final raid" and that he was tortured for a two-year period, as opposed to the entirety of his time in Hỏa Lò. West Wing aide Kelly Sadler dismissed the torture survivor's opinion on torture, saying that it "doesn't matter" because he's "dying anyway".

McCain is 81. He has brain cancer.

McCain is promoting a new book, delivering a counterpunch of ideals contrary to President Donald Trump's running of the White House. Despite interrogation by the press corps, Sanders held her ground and refused to make comments about an internal staff meeting.

According to a report leaked to The Hill on Thursday, as staffers discussed the likelihood that the Senate would confirm Acting CIA Director Gina Haspel-who ran a CIA black site in the early 2000s where detainees were tortured, and participated in covering up the evidence of torture-the discussion turned to John McCain's opposition to Haspel. Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, Debbie Lesko, Martha McSally and David Schweikert.

Meghan McCain addressed the White House aide who reportedly mocked her father Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) and asked how it was possible that she was still employed in the administration. One of his best friends, Sen. Biden lost his son Beau to glioblastoma, the same deadly form of brain cancer that struck McCain.

Gerson said Biden stood in honorably for McCain in March, when the academy named the Arizona senator one of its distinguished graduates. "As he fights for his life, he deserves better -so much better". "We have a respect for all Americans and that is what we try to put forward in everything we do, both in word and in action, focusing on doing things that help every American in this country, every single day", Ms. Sanders said.


Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who is also close to McCain and previously has sided with him on issues of torture, is also voting for Haspel. Fox said McInerney would not be invited back on its business or news channels. I think she's handled it appropriately.

In 1967, while flying a mission over North Vietnam, his plane was shot down.

Ms. Sadler has made no public comment but called Meghan McCain to apologize.

Members of Congress rallied behind their ailing, war-hero colleague.

Contradiction and 180 degree turns are nothing new to this White House.

"It's (a) pretty disgusting thing to say, if it was a joke, it was a bad joke", Graham said.
