US President Donald Trump fires aide who mocked Senator John McCain

Kelly Sadler, the White House aide who mocked Sen.

CNN first reported Tuesday that Sadler was no longer working at White House.

The White House did not deny reports of Sadler's comment at the time, and released a statement affirming respect for McCain, who was a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War. McCain is battling a brain tumor from home in Arizona.

Can Trump Pardon Himself? Not if He’s Impeached
The legal issues aren't entirely settled because no past presidents have ever tried to or asserted they can pardon themselves. When asked, Lee declined to speculate about the motivations of Trump or his legal team in bringing up the pardon power.


Ex-White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said "someone had it out" for the White House communications aide who was quietly let go on Tuesday after making a comment about Sen. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders echoed the sentiment: "I am sure this conversation is going to leak, too", Sanders said, according to Axios. The sources did not say whether Sadler was sacked or if she left on her own accord.

Mr McCain, 81, had indicated he opposed the nomination of now CIA Director nominee Gina Haspel over her role in enhanced interrogation techniques under president George W Bush.

Sadler, who led surrogate affairs for the White House, often sent comments on illegal immigration to reporters and tried to arrange for television personalities, outside groups and others to support the administration's policies.

McCain - a Navy officer who was captured in Vietnam after his aircraft crashed and was tortured as a prisoner of war - urged his Senate colleagues to oppose Gina Haspel's nomination to lead the Central Intelligence Agency, citing her past connections to interrogation methods critics said amounted to torture. Meghan McCain, the senator's daughter, said that Sadler called her to say she was sorry and promised to apologize publicly as well, but never did.

Meghan McCain, a conservative commentator on ABC's popular morning talk show "The View", delivered a defence of her father.

McCain has been a frequent critic of Trump.
