Sanders scolded staff for leak of White House official's 'dying' McCain comment

White House aide dismissed McCain's views because 'he's dying anyway' – report

"It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway", Sadler said, according to the official with knowledge of the comment, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because remarks made during internal meetings are meant to remain confidential.

A day after Sen.

The Hill first reported the comment later confirmed by The Associated Press.

"No one is condoning the remark", a source in the room argued.

The White House on Friday declined to condemn comments made by a special assistant to President Donald Trump dismissing Sen.

"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", Sanders said.

After watching Haspel's Senate testimony Wednesday, McCain issued a statement saying that although Haspel is "a patriot" and a longtime public servant, her past work at the Central Intelligence Agency overseeing interrogation programs was "disturbing".

"It was a mistake, and for that I apologize to all recipients and most especially to the McCain family", said Joe Davis, VFW director of communications.

The subsequent day, Meghan McCain stated on The View that she was shocked Sadler was nonetheless employed by the White Home.

"Don't feel bad for me or my family". John McCain leaked from a closed-door meeting, according to multiple senior White House officials. Some colleagues said afterward that they were unhappy she made the remark, and the White House issued a written statement Thursday expressing respect for Mr. McCain. McCain acknowledged that Haspel is a patriot who has devoted her life to serving the country, but he pointed out that her role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is "disturbing". "That's why they call him Songbird John", McInerney said Thursday on Fox Business Network.

The claim that McCain - who was imprisoned in the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" after his Navy A-4 was shot down over North Vietnam in 1967 - had collaborated with his captors has received a "pants on fire" rating from PolitiFact.

Her family, she said on the show, is "really strong" and "there's so much more love and prayer and awesome energy being generated towards us than anything negative at all".

The host later apologized for the oversight, saying on Twitter that he "had the control room in my ear telling me to wrap the segment, and did not hear the comment".

The veterans service group on Friday accidentally suggested that the Arizona senator had passed away, sending out a draft email to reporters with a subject line that read, "VFW Remembers Senator John McCain", Fox News reported.

"I regret I did not catch this remark, as it should have been challenged", Payne said.
