President Donald Trump took to Twitter to slam the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) after it was revealed that McCain played a major role in spreading the Russia dossier conducted by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Meghan McCain also took to Twitter to defend her father's legacy. Part of her defense also included a word of advice:

Sen. McCain defended his decision to turn over documents to the FBI in his book, "The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations." 

According to The Hillhe wrote, he "did what duty demanded" in passing on the documents.

"I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell," he wrote in the book. 

McCain had originally denied being BuzzFeed's source for the leaked dossier but did confirm he was the one who turned it over to the FBI. 

The documents were unsealed as part of a libel lawsuit against BuzzFeed News.
