Senator Durbin on the loss of his friend and colleague John McCain

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, July 27, 2017. The Senate voted decisively to approve a new package of stiff financial sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea, sending the popular bill to President Donald Trump for his signature after weeks of intense negotiations. The legislation is aimed at punishing Moscow for meddling in the 2016 presidential election and its military aggression in Ukraine and Syria, where the Kremlin has backed President Bashar Assad. McCain said the bill’s passage was long overdue, a jab at Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress.

Senator Dick Durbin joined the Steve Cochran Show to talk about his longtime friend and colleague, John McCain.  He said McCain once yelled at him for a meaningless headline.  He remembers his friend as an American war hero that wasn’t afraid to admit when he made mistakes.
