James Comey was blindsided when this TV host asked him one question

James Comey’s media tour took a dramatic turn.

The fired former FBI Director settled in for what was supposed to be a softball interview on ABC’s left-leaning program The View.

But he was blindsided when one host asked him this question.

Meghan McCain – John McCain’s daughter – unexpectedly ripped into Comey for using his book to score political points.


The Daily Caller reports:

“I want to believe you’re not a political person,” McCain said to Comey. “You’re the head of the FBI, but you write in your book how you went to President Obama, and you were on the verge of tears, saying you were going to miss him. You also said were dreading the next four years with Trump.”

“You said very incendiary things about my party this morning,” she continued. “I’m a Republican who has many issues with Trump, that is not reflective of my party as a whole. The big issue I have 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.”

“That’s a good question,” Comey responded. “I don’t think of it as my politics. I think of it as my values.”

McCain then brought up how Comey’s wife went to the anti-Trump Women’s March and was “very sad on election night.”

“But why bring up politics now?” McCain said. “No disrespect, but what your take on the current Republican Party is — I’m more interested in what you know about national security.”




Comey’s book is allegedly about leadership.

But the work includes cheap personal attacks about President Trump’s appearance and Comey has admitted his wife and daughters were all Hillary Clinton cheerleaders who joined resistance marches against Donald Trump.

Meghan McCain was dead on when she took aim at Comey for acting like a political hack.

    FBI ?
    Fake Bureau (OF) Information

  3. Proud Trump Deplorable says:

    OMG. Stephen Potts: I am shocked about McCain. I had heard rumors over the years that there were a lot of sailors who did not care for him and thought he skated on his family history. Not that he skated through his imprisonment. That was horrible and I do respect him for surviving that ordeal. But I had not heard that he was the pilot who killed all those guys on the Forrestal. That is the saddest thing I have ever read. I think he has more than worn out his welcome over the years and needs to get out of the way. His constituents are not being represented because he won’t let go and retire already. Go away, John. You are done. Let someone do the job that you can no longer perform.

  4. michael says:

    no, you are the idiot!!

  5. Rodger Shull says:

    he was doing what he was paid to do, not his fbi salary, but the obama/soros/clinton money.

  6. James Comey is a “male clone of Hillary Clinton for he lies like her, break laws like her, blames everybody else for his prolbems but himself just like her and just may go to jail just like her”, period!!!!…..

  7. Marc Jeric says:

    Former FBI Director James Comey has a long history of involvement in Department of Justice actions that arguably ended up favorable to the Clintons. In 2001, following the original 9/11 mass murder by the Muslim jihadists, President Bush asked the FBI to track the movements of likely Muslim jihadists; Comey and Mueller refused that request on the basis that such tracking would be “un-American”. The jihadist mass murders of Americans in Boston, Chattanooga, Orlando, Fort Hood, and San Bernardino are therefore the direct result of that irresponsible refusal. In 2004 Comey, then serving as a deputy attorney general in the Justice Department, apparently limited the scope of the criminal investigation of Sandy Berger, which left out former Clinton administration officials who may have coordinated with Berger in his removal and destruction of classified records from the National Archives. The documents were relevant to the accusations that the Clinton administration was negligent in the build-up to the 9/11 terrorist attack. Back a year or two ago, FBI director Comey announced that despite the evidence of “extreme negligence” by Hillary Clinton and her top aides regarding the handling of classified information through her unprotected private email server, the FBI would not refer criminal charges to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Justice Department since it was just a case of innocent negligence. Imagine a similar finding of the Nuremberg trials of the Nazi criminals: “Well – yes, Goebbels did order that 6 million Jews be exterminated – but he really did not mean it, so let him go free with an appropriate government pension”. And now those two criminal anti-American traitors – Comey and Mueller – are “investigating” Russian influence in the Trump electoral victory???

  8. Glenn says:

    Comey is the consummate liberal, you can tell when he’s lying just by watching to see if his lips are moving!!!
    Comey let Hilary Clinton off when he knew as well as anyone she was guilty of setting up her own private email so she could avoid any intrusion into her dirty dealing when she knew it was illegal and now he’s angry because President Trump wouldn’t let him continue with his role in President Trump’s character assassination…

    • Nancy says:

      Anyone on the verge of tears seeing the Manchurian Candidate finally leave is a hardened liberal. Comey was NEVER a Conservative, that is a joke! Conservatives all over America were thrilled to see the back side of the enemy leaving the WH, problem is, he never left. He is still HELL bent on disrupting everything President Trump does to MAGA, and is just waiting for the chance to take over this country with his Muslim outlaws.

  9. michael says:

    i do not ignore the facts, i am well educated and know the difference between fake news and real news and believe that trump is the real reason for fake news!!

  10. I have also had the disgust of several trips from Phoenix to BWI setting in the seat next to Jonnie, he is so into himself that on these 7 or 8 flights he would not even return mine or my wifes hello. He has deffently been a disgrace to my State along with our jr senator Flake. John should again been courts marshaled after getting out of the north hotel. But Daddy came to the tescue.

  11. Michael says:

    Michael, my name is Michael…but I’m the smart Michael…how old are you, 3-4 maybe…you can’t see or hear the pathetic babble that CNN & CNBC SPEW in a pathetic attempt to get ratings…there ratings are down 30 points from this time last year…America knows fake NEWS when they hear it…I have known Since the mid 80s what LIARS and PHONIES they are…I say let’s get up a collection for Michael to buy him some hearing aids & glasses…he might get a little smarter

    • To the smart Michael I have been paying action a lot longer In the early CBS was called the Communist Broadcasting System. In 1961 I had the honor of spending 4 hours on the floor of the Senate with Barry Goldwater and Carl Hayden the majority leader at the time. 12 years Military and 2.5 years an advisor to a Governor has been an eye opener.

  12. michael says:

    i follow the news every day, both online and on the tv. i do not believe in fake news as what is being reported actually is happening. with all the corruption and deceitful behavior going on in the trump administration he is the true loser!!

    • Robert Puckett says:

      all please pray for michael as his take on FAKE News is flawed and ignores the facts!!!!!

    • Bwa Ha says:

      i follow the news every day, both online and on the tv. i do believe in fake news as what is being reported actually is happening. with all the corruption and deceitful behavior that went on in the obama administration he is the true loser!!

      • Nancy says:

        I couldn’t agree more. I have followed politics since 1999, and I no longer listen to the FAKE NEWS because all it takes is common sense to see how these people have lied, twisted, spin and embellish everything President Trump has said and done. When a damn media station has 93% negativity on the President, there is no way that anyone with a functioning mind can say they are fair. The problem is, liberals are not Democrats, most of the Blue Dog Moderate Democrats are now Conservatives, especially the JFK Democrats. They hate the liberals as much as strong Conservatives do. Liberals hate good, love bad, hate God, love Allah, hate Christians love Islam, hate Capitalism love Communism, hate a Republic love oppression, hate Constitution, love Sharia and Communist Manifesto, and as a result, we had the most evil and corrupt, ineligible REGIME this country has ever had, the BO REGIME that was filled with the enemy, the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD. Anyone dispute Muslims can not be Westernized do NOT have a clue about the Constitution. The Constitution is the LAW OF OUR COUNTRY! A Brilliant document authored by the most intelligent men of our times. Sharia, the only law MUSLIMS will obey! Sharia and the Constitution, direct opposite of each other. We had a MUSLIM POTUS pretending to be CINO, to fool those who know nothing about the God of Abraham and what Christianity is, and he literally turned our country into a cesspool, Killary would have been the final nail in the coffin and we would have Communism. I am so sick of the country I grew up in being taken over by the most corrupt and evil Regime this country has ever seen. The Communist infiltrated the Old Blue Dogs, and now have completely taken over the party. It took years, and it will take years to drain the swamp and send them back to where they need to be Russia, Cuba or a country that suits their agenda, but it isn’t going to be our Republic. Trump is here to stay, and anyone who thinks he is corrupt, explain to be why the most intelligent and Christian people this country has ever had at the helm are all behind him. Why is it that all the evil, liars, murderers, Muslims, illegals, drug cartels, MS 15 gangs, pimples on societies ass, bottom feeders that hate all that is good is all for BO and Killary? Get real, no one but another bottom feeder believes anything you liberals spew. You are done, and it is prophesied in the Bible that Trump will win in 2020, he is doing a magnificent job of cleaning up BO’s mess even with the FAKE NEWS and FBI and Commies in Congress drumming up scandals that they are responsible for, not Trump.

    • Name one thing that corruption or deceitful. These are Democrat tactic your statements are representive of the American Commu ist Workers Party now calling itself the Democrats.

    • Joseph says:

      Son have you looked at what had been going on for 8 years before that? Obama had more scandals then any president in history. Most of which the Media would not cover. This is very Hitler like, for the media to never report on the many scandals that rocked the white house while Obama was there. The Clintons started this entire moral decline in this country. As someone that lived in Little Rock while he was govenor I can tell you those wild parties with cocaine and hooker really happened. My ex -wife was a page for your beloved Clinton. He was and still is a scumbag to the tenth degree. I have not heard you say one bad thing about that party. I know not much was on the national news but most of it has been proven since those 2 have left office. Your what we call a true liberal stodge.

  13. ernaldo says:

    Comey should have NEVER been nominated to head the FBI…Thanks “W”. Its bad enough we will probably need to go into the streets at some point, to kill quite a few seditionist demotards, but what do we do with the pathetic rinos, especially the ones that ran as conservative. Its also not so much W went leftist, after the 2006 midterms he went nowhere……President Trump, you need to sack Sessions and appoint an AG that will do his/her job. Comey and his leftist dirtbag komrades need to be PROSECUTED to the max!

    • Bwa Ha says:

      Ernaldo. Great post! We avoided one bullet via that Butcher Bitch of Benghazi, hillary clinton but we have a whole slew of RINOs who were put in place to run interference and collude with the demoncrats if the beyatch won and they’re doing just what they signed on to do regardless of the fact that we, the people won, not the liberals! The RINOs and the demoncrats and rest of the liberals area “all in” for destroying our country, our republic. We need TERM LIMITS on all politicos. 12 yrs. max! $12,000.00/yr. pension (taxable). No further perks. Same national health care plans we have, if any. IMHO

    It’s time to indict Comey. Plain and simple.

  18. KERK says:

    John Potts, I did not know that. Thanks for the update.

  19. Michael says:

    Comet reminds me of a little kid who holds his breath until mommy let’s him have his own way….its OK mommy, I know I illegally spy’d on Mr Trump, I know I used my position to give Crooked Hillary a pass in her criminal activity, I know I tried to fix an election through manipulating the facts about Hillary emails…but its OK I don’t like Mr Trump…Comet a SO CALLED top law enforcement law officer and LEAKER. .you better look in the mirror before you start talking about Mr Trumps virtue’s!

  20. Rolland Hamm says:

    The real James Comey is coming out. I have lost respect for him and the FBI who know what is real.

  21. michael says:

    comey is a winner, trump is a loser and will only try to ruin our great country!!

  22. Bad dude says:

    I think Comey along with Clinton android the rest of the group belong in jail,but the elites will never get locked up because of who they are.

    • shirley says:

      Bad Dude, I’d much rather see them all tried nd convicted of treason etc.
      and either publically hanged or put in front of a firing squad as they deserve. Shy should we pamper them in prison the rest of their lives. We need that money to put America right again.

  23. Mike Baumgartner says:

    What would the Dem’s be saying if the FBI director had been partisan in favor of the Republican party?

  24. J Lucido says:

    Wow! I really did not like how this Meghan cold face,insensitive, and attitude person, insulted the very nice man J. Comey. So what if Meghan does not want to know about some of his political comments in his book? We Americans want to hear every things, about this chaos W.H. Sorry Meghan ,you are too spoiled and all you are doing, is showing off. J. Comey wants to REALLY bring America to be great. He is trying to wake people up in a very good matter. to actually show us light in this dark times.If all you people cannot see that Trump is not God or above the law. You are the total cause of our country going down hill,and fast.Wake up,do not be brainwashed with all your OLD ways. See and be honest with reality.

    • Ken says:

      Another brain dead commie drone? PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS ELECTED TO DO AND IS FOLLOWING OUR LAWS. Unlike the Kenyan communist interloper and his regime who thought the Constitution was an outdated piece of paper, and who thought America’s laws were just suggestions for the Emperor. ALL liberal communist infiltrators and those politicians who aid them should be rooted out and deported or jailed as terrorists.

    • LARRY DENNIS says:

      You seem to be very fond of this career criminal. You can tell when Comey is lying, because you will see his mouth moving.

    • Stephen Potts says:

      America has been on the slippery slope to oblivion the day your little muslim God Barry Soetoro became President.Talk about low information voter.Comedy knew the fake dossier was paid for by Hillary Clinton and said nothing.That, voter is a Fedral crime.An honest man would not have done that.Comedy cried to Obama hat h would is s him and has gone to destroy our current Presidnt! No, Coney is not an honorable man by any stretch of the imagination, unless you are a snowflake Democrat who thought Hillary Clinton was going o be crowned Criminal-in-Chief in 2016!!!

  25. Reta W. says:

    Meghan is right about this. Comey and the FBI are suppose to above politics or at least perform their duties in such a manner as to preclude politics. But all of Comey”s actions appear to be politically motivated. He was dreading the next four years with Trump but he was crying because he was going to miss him? That sounds contradictory. And does it make any sense to anyone? He prefers to think of it has his values but has he demonstrated any consistent values? He is not to be trusted.

  26. zebra dun says:

    Comey is typical of the left over Obama admin, bunch of clowns and weeping children who did not get their way.
    Comey is dangerous.

    • Caroline says:

      And has been for the Clintons since AR. Sad he is part of the problem in America and none of the solution nor does he have pride about anything but himself and that is false pride. Unfortunately, he is a member of we call The Deep State and with his whining and pointing his finger, he shows he has no values but was easily bought. Like Paul Ryan, the family is all democrat so no way has he ever been a republican! Sad little child who needs a butt warming and it is coming and sooner than he can even imagine.

  27. Jamie says:

    I like Meghan McCain’s take on The View but I would like her to take her father to task for his part in the FAKE dossier! I don’t watch The View anymore as they’re all liberals except Meghan. I would like to see Dana ? on there to argue the Republican’s side! THAT, I would watch!

  28. Granny Jo says:

    Meghan McCain is worth listening to. She doesn’t seem to follow her rhino-father’s establishment line so much.
    I appreciate her candor and frankness. I wonder how long they’ll keep her on the “view?”

  29. Tom Martin says:

    Comey acts like a man that lost a lover. I am so sorry Jim, but your hands were too small and I guess all tall men aren’t necessarily large in other places (brain)

  30. Mike says:

    She’s an establishment GOP cheerleader! The very organization her father is a part of. She isn’t interested in how Comey attacks president Trump or the American people who elected him!
    The entire View cast are political hacks. I don’t waste my time with any of them!

  31. KERK says:

    I appreciate that Ms. McCain is a lone Republican on a very leftist show. She does a good job of standing up for her values. In all honesty, I do not watch the show because of the other hosts, so I only know of Ms. McCain when she is on the news for defending her side of an argument. That said, I do not trust her father as a politician. He is a war hero, but not someone I trust now.

    • Stephen Potts says:

      John McCain has been falsely declared a hero.Google search the USS FORRESTAL FIRE 1967.Over30 sailors were burned to death by a jackass pilot screwing around in his jet fighter.He ignited his afterburner while sitting on the flight deck, igniting jet fuel tanks on deck which resulted in a massive fireball engulfing all sailors on deck in that awful explosion.That pilots name as Lt. John McCain.The only reason he wasn’t courtmartialed and sent to Federal prison is because McCains father and grandfather were Admirals in the Navy and hushed up the accident and had his Naval records sealed.However, many surviving sailors of the tragic day have come forward throughout the years and ALL have named McCain as the pilot of the jet that set the fire.ALL survivors also corroborated that the afterburner should never have been lit until the jet was lifting off the deck at the opposite end of the Aircraft Carrier!! Read for yourself.McCain is a murderer, NOT a hero.

      • To the smart Michael I have been paying attentiona lot longer In the early 1960s CBS was called the Communist Broadcasting System. In 1961 I had the honor of spending 4 hours on the floor of the Senate with Barry Goldwater and Carl Hayden the majority leader at the time. 12 years Military and 2.5 years an advisor to a Governor has been an eye opener.

  32. I have always held great respect for Meghan. I didn’t/don’t always agree with her father but I’m very impressed with her independent take on conservative issues. Comey didn’t hold a candle to her. Good for her.

  33. Dave Miedema says:

    I used to think of Meghan McCain as the dumb blond of the Republican Party, but NO MORE! She’s become a strong voice on the View, saying what’s on her mind and going at it both with guests and co-hosts. The liberal old she-bats on the show do not deserve to be in the same room as this smart, strong and beautiful conservative woman.
