Schumer to Re-Introduce Bill to Rename Senate Office After Warmonger John McCain
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is re-introducing a bill to name the Russell Senate Office building after petty warmonger John McCain.
The move comes amid President Donald Trump’s renewed criticism of McCain’s role in pushing the discredited Christopher Steele dossier and voting against the ObamaCare repeal and replace bill.
“I look forward to soon re-introducing my legislation re-naming the Russell Senate Building after American hero, Senator John McCain,” Schumer tweeted on Wednesday.

Making the situation more awkward, the Russell Building current has offices of senators who are outspoken critics of McCain’s neocon policies, including Senator Mike Lee, and Senator Rand Paul, who the late Never-Trumper accused of working for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
When Schumer originally proposed the idea it faced massive backlash from Republican Senators Richard Shelby, David Perdue, Bill Cassidy and others.
“Senator Russell was a well respected man from the South and up here too,” said Senator Shelby at the time. “He was a well-respected senator.”
