Former “The View” host Meghan McCain has hinted at filing a defamation lawsuit against her ex-colleague, Ana Navarro, who insinuated that McCain unlawfully used her family’s name for financial gain.
The political commentator, who is the daughter of the late U.S. Senator John McCain, threatened legal action against Navarro after she compared her to Hunter Biden during a recent episode. “I don’t understand why my former colleagues bring me up and slander me on an almost weekly basis,” McCain wrote in an X post. “It has been years. Move on, I have.”
McCain was responding to comments made by Navarro, who defended Hunter Biden by claiming that influence peddling is common. “And being Hunter Biden’s very loving father, very good father, very supportive father. Look, did Hunter Biden influence peddle on his last name? Yes, he did. So did half of Washington. People sitting at this table did it,” Navarro said in reference to McCain.
“I have never been accused of a crime in my life and am a patriotic American — I would never and have never ‘influence peddled’ in my life, let alone with foreign adversaries. Not all politicians’ children are the same — and I am no Hunter Biden,” McCain said in response to the comments. She then hinted at potential legal action if Navarro does not issue a retraction.
“All accusations are absurd, defamatory and slanderous. I will be consulting my lawyers regarding what was libeled against me on The View this morning.”
