attacks John McCain a SECOND TIME after Meghan defends her dad

President Donald attacked John McCain again on Twitter Sunday to complain about the late senator's ties to the infamous Steele dossier that contains the unverified allegations the Russians have blackmail material on the president.

'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. He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!, the president wrote.
