Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., raised concern about a reported discussion White House adviser Jared Kushner had with Russia's U.S. ambassador about establishing a secret communication channel with the Russian government.
"I don't like it, I just don't," McCain told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in an interview.
"I know some administration officials are saying well, that's standard procedure, McCain said. "I don't think it's standard procedure prior to the inauguration of the President of the United States by someone who is not in an appointed position."
The Washington Post had reported Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, discussed the possibility with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring.
And, McCain said the reports regarding Russia and the election grow stranger every day.
"I think Mr. (James) Comey (the former FBI director) we now know took action that he did in regards to then-candidate (Hillary) Clinton in regards to false news that was being put out by the Russians," McCain told ABC.
"This is becoming more and more bizarre — in fact you can't make it up."
