Trump goes after McCain over dossier for second straight day

Source: The Hill | March 17, 2019 | Brett Samuels

President Trump on Sunday criticized late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for a second consecutive day amid reports that one of McCain’s associates had shared a dossier of allegations about Trump’s ties to Russia with the media.

“So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) ‘last in his class’ (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election,” Trump tweeted. “He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!”

Fox News reported that newly unsealed court filings showed that a McCain associate had shared the dossier with the FBI and several media outlets.

The dossier contains numerous allegations, including some salacious claims, about the president’s ties to Russia. Many of the allegations are unverified.

Sunday marked the second straight day Trump went after McCain, who died last August after a lengthy battle with brain cancer.

The president on Saturday quoted former independent counsel Ken Starr, who called it a “very dark stain” against McCain that he had helped spread the dossier.

    Normal people move on once an enemy is dead.

    Granny, I’ve been arguing about this with Trump supporters much of the day. They see nothing wrong with a grownup still bullying a dead man. Gives you some idea of the type of people Trump attracts to him.

    And about McCain’s academic troubles at Annapolis: At least we know that McCain may not have been particularly scholarly. On the other hand, we don’t know what kind of student Trump was because he had Cohen threaten the schools if they released any information about his grades. For all we know, Trump may have been the class dunce
