But he has another set of rules that applies to him as well,” McCall told ABC News This Week co-host Martha Raddatz. who asked if he saw anything reason that Trump took highly classified materials.

“And you know to say Republicans are a threat to democracy, that’s really a slap in the face in in face … you know my vote on certification and my position on what. I took oath to the Constitution, but having said this, you do not come out unite the nation,” McCall said, adding that it “was not a presidential address.”
