Meghan McCain Threatens ‘View’ Co-Host With Lawsuit 

A former co-host of “The View” has threatened to sue after her former colleague on the show made “defamatory and slanderous” comments about her.

Meghan McCain, former co-host on The View, said she would consult her lawyer after Co-host Ana Navarro accused McCain of influence-peddling like Hunter Biden.

Navarro made the accusation while trying to defend President Joe Biden and Hunter against influence-peddling accusations brought against them by House Republicans.

“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.

Navaro However did not mention Meghan’s name, leading the other hosts to wonder who she was wondering. Navarro later specified that she was not referring to any of the hosts who currently sit at the panel.

“We just wanted to clear our names,” co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin said after Navarro made the clarification.

Megahn McCain is the daughter of late Sen. John McCain (R-az) which suggests Navaro could only have been referring to Megahn McCain.

Megahn McCain, who sat the show’s panel as the only conservative voice, hit back at Navaro’s false claims while adding that she has never tried to gain influence with her father’s name.

“I don’t understand why my former colleagues @TheView@ABC bring me up and slander me on an almost weekly basis. It has been years – move on, I have,” McCain said. “I have never been accused of a crime in my life and am a patriotic American – I would never and have never ‘influenced peddled’ in my life, let alone with foreign adversaries. Not all politicians’ children are the same – and I am no Hunter Biden. All accusations are absurd, defamatory and slanderous. I will be consulting my lawyers regarding what was libeled against me on The View this morning.”

McCain in another separate X post said she does not take it lightly when news programs suggest she engages in criminal behavior.

“@TheView is an @ABCnNews program,” McCain wrote. “I do not take it lightly when any news program suggests I engage in criminal behavior, especially as a former employee of ABC News.”
