Huma Abedin tweeted on Sunday to pay tribute to the late Senator John McCain
The last time the former Hillary Clinton aide tweeted was back in July 2016
Abedin honored McCain saying that words could only strive to captured the 'greatness of his character'
McCain once took to the Senator floor in 2012 to defend Abedin when some members of Congress accused her of being part of the Muslim Brotherhood
He publicly slammed the claims and described Abedin as an 'intelligent, upstanding, hard-working and loyal servant' of the country
