Schumer Wants to Rename Senate Office Building After John McCain

US Senator John McCain dies aged 81

McCain was cleared of wrongdoing in 1991 but the Senate Ethics Committee rebuked him for poor judgment.

The United States Ambassador to New Zealand, Scott Brown, remembered McCain as a "hero" and a "leader".

That moment appeared to cement McCain's reputation as a politician with a fierce independent streak, although his overall voting record shows he was more partisan than his public image.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: "Today is a deeply sad day for the Senate and for our nation".

McCain left Washington for the final time to spend Christmas with his family.

Following his 2008 presidential loss, McCain exercised his influence as the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee to support military intervention in the Syrian Civil War and in 2013 became the first US senator to visit Syrian rebels. But it reflected McCain's reckoning with the fear pervading his party of Obama, who would go on to become the nation's first black president. But we shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher-the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched, and sacrificed.

Obama said the two political opponents "saw our political battles, even, as a privilege, something noble, an opportunity to serve as stewards of those high ideals at home, and to advance them around the world". Bush, the son of a former president.

Trump Rails Against Mueller Calling Obstruction a 'Phony Crime'
The president asserted that he'd given McGahn "approval" to meet with investigators and sought to discredit Mueller and his team. President accuses Democrats of using the special counsel to impact midterm elections; Kevin Corke reports from the White House.

Former President George W. Bush, who defeated McCain in the 2000 Republican primary, issued a statement calling McCain "a man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order". Elaine and I join all Americans in mourning the passing of our dear friend and colleague Senator John McCain.

McCain also sought out another Democrat in an act that was more repentance than reconciliation.

With no more elections to run, since 2016, he was a rare and outspoken Republican critic of President Donald Trump. He continued to issue statements and tweets, published a valedictory book and took part in an HBO documentary that some likened to starring in his own obituary.

But it was McCain's fortitude after joining the Navy that would define him.

US President Donald Trump led the tributes immediately after hearing the news, and wrote on Twitter: "My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain".

McCain, a former Republican presidential nominee and a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, died Saturday at age 81.

Since then, the Senator embraced Arizona wholeheartedly.

McCain was a prisoner of war in Vietnam for over five years.

Eventually, he recovered from injuries and infection, only to spend two years in solitary confinement, where he used codes to communicate with other prisoners.

But what most scandalised the ageing senator was the new president's persistent refusal to acknowledge and confront Russian meddling in the United States political process.

McCain tried to inject some youth and enthusiasm into his campaign with his selection of Palin, Alaska's governor, as his running mate.
