“Maybe going forward I shouldn’t stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games.”
Sen. John McCain released an epic statement following his questioning of former FBI Director James Comey on Thursday that stated: “maybe going forward I shouldn’t stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games.”
The social media trolls came out of the woodwork during McCain’s questioning of Comey, many of whom found McCain’s line of questioning confusing.
McCain decided to release a statement regarding his line of questioning that, he sensed from Twitter, “went over people’s heads.”
“What I was trying to get at was whether Mr. Comey believes that any of his interactions with the President rise to the level of obstruction of justice,” McCain explained.
McCain noted in his statement how Comey had “step[ped] beyond his role as an investigator” when he said “no reasonable prosecutor” would prosecute Hillary Clinton.
“I wanted Mr. Comey to apply the same approach to the key question surrounding his interactions with President Trump—whether or not the President’s conduct constitutes obstruction of justice,” McCain explained.
But, Sen. McCain gave an all-time great reasoning for why he missed the mark: “maybe going forward I shouldn’t stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games.”
The Arizona Diamondbacks responded to McCain’s statement tweeting:

“While I missed an opportunity in today’s hearing, I still believe this question is important, and I intend to submit it in writing to Mr. Comey for the record,” McCain’s statement concluded.
