About McCain’s dissent, Gillibrand said this:
“I respect Sen. McCain and we are friends, but with all due respect to him, he was wrong about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and he was wrong about sexual assault in the military.”
“Our job as members of Congress is to provide that oversight and accountability over the military, over the Department of Defense, and there is a growing chorus of military leaders who have even more experience than Sen. McCain who are saying, ‘This should be taken out of the chain of command.'”
