Meghan McCain Tees Off on James Comey: It Seems Like He Is ‘Settling Scores’

Meghan McCain was wholly unimpressed by James Comey‘s Sunday night interview on ABC.

Speaking Monday on The View, the conservative pundit absolutely tore into Comey for what she deemed to be a personal vendetta of sorts from the ousted FBI Director.

“[I]t seems like he is settling scores,” McCain said.

McCain went on to bash Comey for the media tour which began in earnest on Sunday — suggesting it’s beneath the dignity of the office he once held.

“He clearly loves the media,” McCain said. “And that’s fine if you want to do what we do. But it’s not if you are the head of the FBI.”

Earlier in the segment, McCain summarized her issue with the former FBI Director thusly:

“The problem with James Comey is he can’t decide what he is. Is he a boy scout defending the FBI…or is he a media personality and a highly political animal?”

It’s a question she’ll get to ask Comey later in the week.

“He’s coming on [The View] Wednesday,” McCain said. “Congratulations. We’re all gonna filet you.”

Get your popcorn ready.
