Host Meghan McCain accused former FBI director James Comey of being a “political commentator” during his appearance on ABC’s The View on Wednesday.

“Why bring up politics now?” McCain, the daughter of Republican Senator John McCain, told Comey during the program. “I’m more interested in what you know about national security.” She added, “You have to understand how this looks to Republicans…. You sound more like a political commentator to me.”

Wednesday’s television appearance came one day after the release of Comey’s book A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership. In the book, Comey writes how his wife and daughters had supported Hillary Clinton for president and participated in the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

He recalls adding, “I dread the next four years, but in some ways, I feel more pressure to stay now.”

McCain, a Republican, brought up those comments from the book in the appearance on Wednesday.

During the appearance, Comey pushed back on the claim that he is a partisan. “I don’t think of it as my politics, I think of it as my values,” he said.

He went on to say that he is neither a Democrat nor a Republican. “I hope the conversation will start with values and come to policy second,” he said. “All we are as a country is a collection of values, and that’s what unites Republicans and Democrats.”

Comey also said he didn't engage in political discussions as FBI director. “Heck no…. I didn’t vote, I tried not to follow the back and forth and I tried not to and didn’t engage my wife [on political topics],” he said.

Comey: I’m ‘embarrassed and ashamed’ by Republican party .
Former FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday he's "embarrassed and ashamed" by the Republican Party, arguing the party is willing to sacrifice its values to earn legislative wins. Comey said he was first attracted to the Republican Party because it valued character above all else, and placed an emphasis on national defense. "My question for Republicans is, so, where is that? Where is that commitment to character and values," Comey said during a CNN town hall event. "And if people have convinced themselves we'll trade it temporarily for a tax cut or Supreme Court justice, that's a fool's bargain.
