McCain on Kushner backchannel reports: "I don't like it"

“I don’t like it,” the Republican lawmaker said Monday in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s “7:30” when asked about President Donald Trump’s son-in-law’s possible ties to Russia.

“I know that some administration officials are saying ‘well, that’s standard procedure.’ I don’t think it’s standard procedure prior to the inauguration of the president of the United States by someone who is not in an appointed position. And I think that (former FBI Director James) Comey we now know took action that he did in regards to then-candidate (Hillary) Clinton because of some false news that was being put out by the Russians. I mean, this becomes more and more bizarre. In fact, you can’t make it up.”
