Amid President Donald Trump's renewed criticisms of the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., for leaking the Dems' dossier, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is vowing to rename Russell Senate Office building after the late senator.

"I look forward to soon re-introducing my legislation re-naming the Senate Russell Building after American hero, Sen. John McCain," Schumer tweeted Wednesday.

President Trump infamously ripped McCain for being described as a war hero because he was captured. Also, the president is still seething over McCain casting the deciding vote to sink the GOP's plans to repeal and replace Obamacare.

It was McCain's last major vote as a senator before he succumbed to glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.

The renewal of Trump's longtime rivalry with the deceased senator comes after court documents revealed it was McCain who leaked the Democratic National Committee funding dossier in an effort to meddle in the 2016 presidential election against his heated rival — even though they were in the same party.

Trump reiterated this week: "I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be."

The Senate Russell Office building is named after former Sen. Richard Brevard Russell, D-Ga., and has been controversial because of his opposition to civil rights legislation, according to The Hill.
