The View host Meghan McCain took former FBI Director James Comey to the woodshed on Wednesday, telling him to “stop pretending” to be apolitical because he “sounds like a political commentator.”
“I think maybe J. Edgar Hoover is rolling over in his grave at the things you’re revealing,” McCain told Comey.
“The big issue is, I don’t want to know your politics. And a lot of the things you’re saying and doing are highly political. And I just don’t understand what you gain trying to sort of clear the deck here by bringing things like this up.”
Comey responded that he doesn’t see his anti-Trump and pro-Obama views in his book “A Higher Loyalty” as his “politics” so much as “values” that he holds.
“You sound like a political commentator to me,” McCain replied.
