Fmr. Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods (R) and friend of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said the deceased Senator "immediately delivered" the infamous Trump dossier to the FBI after he obtained it. Woods said that is what a "good American" and a statesman does. CNN host Don Lemon agreed and said that is what an "ethical person" should and would do.
"He got the information and he read it and it's pretty explosive. He immediately delivered it to the FBI and said this is for you all to deal with. That's what a statesman does. That's what a good American does. And that's what John McCain did," Woods said Monday night on CNN.
GRANT WOODS, FMR. ARIZONA ATTORNEY GENERAL, MCCAIN FRIEND: The president does not understand that people who are your opponents, people who are in the opposite political parties or opponents in your own party are not your enemies, that at the end of the day we're all Americans, and, you know, we don't get too many heroes in this world and in this country and everybody knows John McCain was an American hero. He was one of our very best. And so it doesn't reflect on John McCain to have him continually attacked like this, it reflects on Donald Trump. It demeans not McCain, it demeans the presidency and it demeans Donald Trump.
DON LEMON, CNN HOST: I was surprised because John McCain wrote about the dossier in his book and said for all the critics he didn't, you know, they can go to you-know-what. But he shared it with the FBI. Which was probably what he was supposed to do, is share it with law enforcement if someone sends you information like that.
WOODS: That's what happened. He got the information and he read it and it's pretty explosive. He immediately delivered it to the FBI and said this is for you all to deal with. That's what a statesman does. That's what a good American does. And that's what John McCain did.
LEMON: That's what an ethical person should do and would do.
