Fox News host Neil Cavuto asked Mulvaney about what he thought of White House Director of Surrogate and Coalitions Outreach Kelly Sadler saying that it doesn't matter if McCain opposes President Donald Trump's pick to lead the Central Intelligence Agency because "he's dying anyway".
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders privately admonished communications and press staff on Friday over the leaked comment, according to several sources familiar with the meeting.
"I'm not going to validate a leak out of an internal staff meeting one way or the other", she said.
Sadler reportedly called McCain's daughter, Meghan McCain, after making the remark. 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.
Sen. John McCain is still showing his influence in Washington while battling cancer thousands of miles away in Arizona. He left Washington in December and few expect him to return. Flake is undecided on Haspel and said McCain's position is weighing on his own decision-making.
"I don't perceive what sort of setting you're working in when that might be acceptable and you'll come to work the subsequent day and nonetheless have a job", McCain stated. "We're really strong", she said.
Haspel faced grilling Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee about her role overseeing some CIA operations after the September 11 attacks. "I just wish somebody from the White House would tell the country that was inappropriate, that's not who we are in the Trump administration".
As for the president, he and McCain have had a troubled relationship.
In the summer of 2015, shortly after launching his presidential campaign, Trump mocked McCain's war service, saying of the 2008 Republican presidential nominee: "He's not a war hero".
Mr. McCain's friends lashed out at the White House for gross insensitivity. Both cited unnamed individuals in the room when the disparaging remark was made by Kelly Sadler, a special assistant to the president.
The crowd booed, and Trump added, "I won't use his name".
Asked if Trump himself should apologize for Sadler's comments, Graham said, "I'll leave that up to him, but if something happened like that in my office - somebody in my office said. such a thing about somebody, I would apologize on behalf of the office".
Sanders says the White House has respect for all Americans.
