(RNN) – The White House communications aide who allegedly made an insulting comment about Sen. John McCain last month no longer works for the Trump administration, according to a report CNN published Tuesday.

Kelly Sadler, who served as special assistant to President Donald Trump, remained on staff a month after reportedly saying in a meeting that McCain's vocal opposition to Gina Haspel becoming the CIA director didn't matter because "he's dying, anyway."

McCain is battling glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer.

The White House didn't immediately respond to CNN's request for a comment on Sadler's departure.

    The hacking attempts mirror similar Russian attacks ahead of the 2016 election, which U.S. intelligence officials have said were focused on helping to elect Republican Donald Trump to the presidency by hurting his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
