WH aide Kelly Sadler dismissed Sen. John McCain's view, says 'he's dying'

Other media outlets like The Washington Post have confirmed her nasty remark and the White House has not denied what Sadler said.

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.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders essentially drove a dagger through the other items Friday, listing only an immigration bill when asked to lay out the White House's 2018 legislative agenda.

"I'm not going to validate a leak, one way or another, out of an internal staff meeting", Sanders said at the briefing.

Kelly Sadler, a special assistant who handles surrogate communications, told other staffers during a meeting Thursday that McCain's opposition to Trump's Central Intelligence Agency director nominee, Gina Haspel, does not matter because "he's dying anyway", a White House official told CNN.

The White House had released a more supportive statement Thursday evening that said, "We respect Senator McCain's service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this hard time".

The nonprofit organization, Veterans of Foreign Wars, mistakenly emailed a drafted press release to reporters announcing the death of McCain, who has been at his Sedona ranch recovering from recent surgery and continues to battle an aggressive form of brain cancer. She reportedly called Meghan McCain, the senator's daughter, to apologize on Thursday evening. "Donald Trump has made multiple comments, disparaging comments about John McCain", Setmayer said. "That's why they call him 'Songbird John, ' retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney said".

"McCain's spouse, Cindy, tweeted at Sadler on Thursday, writing, "@kellysadler45 Might I remind you my husband has a household, 7 youngsters and 5 grandchildren".

Meghan McCain thanked the public for its support.

A reporter asked Sanders if Sadler still had a job.

He added: "I imagine the Senate ought to train its obligation of recommendation and consent and reject this nomination".

McCain was a Navy pilot who spent years during the war in captivity, where he was beaten.

Haspel testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday as she seeks to be confirmed as the head of the US spy agency. The senator issued a statement Wednesday calling Haspel a "patriot", but saying "her refusal to acknowledge torture's immorality is disqualifying".

Former Vice President Joe Biden, on the presidential ticket that beat McCain in 2008, said Friday that the Arizona senator is a "genuine hero" whose "sacrifices for his country are immeasurable". "I like people who weren't captured", Trump said.

Last July, McCain became the deciding vote against the GOP health care repeal with a dramatic thumbs-down.

The crowd booed, and Trump added, "I won't use his name". Sadler reportedly said of McCain, "He's dying anyway", so his opinion "doesn't matter". 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.
