"I think that the Flynn issue obviously is something that shows that in many respects this administration is in disarray and they've got a lot of work to do," said McCain, a Republican who is chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

"The president I think makes statements (and) on other occasions contradicts himself. So we've learned to watch what the president does as opposed to what he says," McCain said at the Munich Security Conference.
