Dem Senator Claire McCaskill Caught LYING About Past Meetings with Russian Ambassdor During Sessions Smear Attempt

FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2014 file photo, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. listens on Capitol Hill in Washington. Key senators are telling The Associated Press they want to see more rigorous oversight of the federal government's development agency, called the Overseas Private Investment Corporation. The agency was the subject of an AP investigation earlier this week into a failed $217 million energy project in western Africa that was marked by insider connections and questionable due diligence. The AP's scrutiny brings renewed attention to earlier proposals on Capitol Hill to create the job of inspector general inside the agency to review its activities. McCaskill said inspectors general serve as the eyes and ears of taxpayers to prevent waste, fraud and abuse, and every agency should have one. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

Last night, news broke that Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with the Russian Ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, while he was still a senator. One of these meetings took place at the GOP convention, where Amb. Kislyak was among a group of several other ambassadors when he met with then-Senator Sessions. The other was in September, in Sessions’s senatorial office, according to a Wall Street Journal report

…Mr. Sessions spoke with the Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergei Kislyak, while the Republican National Convention was under way in Cleveland last summer, according to his spokeswoman, Sarah Flores. He also spoke with Mr. Kislyak on another occasion last year, in a meeting in his Senate office, she said, clarifying that the meeting was in person and not on the phone as she had initially said.

The reason this is being blown-up as a major issue by Democrats is because at his confirmation hearing for the attorney general slot, Sessions said that he had never spoken to the Russians in his role as a member of the Trump campaign. The answer is being called a lie by some, an omission by others. Mr. Sessions himself is calling the Democrat response (some Dems are calling for him to resign) a misrepresentation of what he said at the hearing.

You can watch his answer here.

There’s two takeaways on this for me. One, is that the Russia angle will never be dropped by the media or the Democrats. Expect this angle to be pushed for as long as President Trump is in office. I believe this was likely a setup from the start targeting Sessions (another Democrat, Senator Patrick Leahy, asked Sessions about Russia in a written question). It was probably fed to hostile media and Democrat Party members by rogue intelligence agency members and/or ex-Obama administration flacks.

The other thing that stands out is the sheer dishonesty on the part of Democrats. Look at Senator Claire McCaskill this morning. She was also on the Senate Armed Services Committee, which is the same committee Jeff Sessions was on. Mr. Sessions has claimed to have met with Amb. Kislyak as a result of his duties there.

Sen. McCaskill ridiculed that on Twitter this morning…

There’s only one problem with what she said. It’s completely untrue.

So, we have a United States Senator attempting to smear a former United States Senator on Twitter in order to score some cheap political points. I suppose that bit is nothing new, but the blatant lying bit is what really jumps out a me. At least go back and delete some of your old tweets if you’re going to spout falsehoods like this one. It didn’t even take a news report or some old interview from a television appearance.

Claire McCaskill’s own Twitter account hung her out to dry.

    TFW reality is setting in about Trump and a blog is doing their best to spin it, much in the tradition of the MSM that is so generally despised in these parts. That Dem beotch was tweeting about this 4 years ago homie, so while I appreciate the attempt to make this appear to be hypocrisy, you’re reaching. And it’s a weak attempt at equivocating, Ralph.
    Trump has been a travesty since day one, and all this shadiness is coming home to roost. The most hilarious thing to me is that the Trump marks claim to be “nationalists”, even while they are getting worked by the Russian intelligence apparatus. It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

      And now, for the rational side:

      The Dems, in the person of Al ‘Cocksucker’ Franken, asked Sessions specifically (via a written questionnaire, no less) if he had contact with the Russians about the 2016 election. Note those last four words. And he said no.

      They didn’t ask ‘have you had any contact with the Russians prior to this day in any capacity’, because he would’ve said yes. Why? Because he was a ranking senator on the Armed Services Committee, you worthless bootlick. Senators do occasionally have contact with ambassadors, as Claire McCaskill stated before she decided to shove both feet into her pie hole.

      Does it hurt being a tool of Obumbles, Quise? To know you’re nothing more than another shill, desperately trying to get the election overturned because you can’t stand the fact that the Haggard Queen Will Never Be President?

      Suck it down, bitch.

      You’ve clearly never heard the saying of “technically correct, which is the best kind of correct” – Sessions answered the question that was put to him in a perfectly acceptable manner. I’d go into more of it, but Toastrider has already BTFO’d your wimpering ass.

        He upvoted his own post. How pathetic is that?

          Typical children on the internet, running their mouths and thinking their own shit smells like daises.

    “Trump has been a travesty since day one, and all this shadiness is coming home to roost.”

    What color is the sun in your world, Cliffie?

    This is the Dems self-destructing.

    Last e-mail from McCaskill stating she had a tel conf with the Russian Ambassador was Aug 2015. Note in her recent e-mail how she uses the word “never”, as in “I never spoke to the Russian Ambassador on the telephone. Ever.”

    Spin that, quisling.

    Any update on the Berkeley situation in terms of arrests? I have heard not a single thing. Can you look into/write a follow up?

    • Toastrider

      I doubt anyone will be arrested. I know DC has about 200 punks up on various flavors of riot, assault, etc charges. But it looks like the leftists actually -warned- Kalifornia and Berkeley authorities first, as if telling them not to interfere.

  • FWGuy

    McCaskill should live by her own words and resign from office immediately for lying to the people of Missouri and the rest of the country. There is no excuse for lies for political reasons.

  • Danlantic

    And she only got paid 74¢ on the dollar for her time with the ambassador compared with Jeff Sessions! From her website:

    Women make up nearly half of Missouri’s workforce, but earn only 74 cents for every dollar paid to men in the state.

      Oh god she’s one of those “muh wage gap” feminists is she? No wonder she hasn’t got a fucking brain in that head of hers.

  • Silence Dogood

    This Russian business will be the Democrats Benghazi, except there’s absolutely nothing there and it makes them look even more desperate, petty and frankly retarded. This is all a continued attempt to delegitimize Trump’s presidency, which as Sargon of Akkad has pointed out numerous times, is fucking DANGEROUS. I don’t believe Session’s lied; he gave a lawyer’s answer and was technically correct (aka the best kind of correct) – his interactions with Russia were in his capacity as a Senator and not as a Trump surrogate, which is perfectly fine. Flynn bit the dust because the moron conducted diplomacy while he was still a civilian, which is not allowable under federal law. Sessions was doing his job. As for that duplicitous Democrat bitch, well, this is just another example of an elderly fool not understanding the power of social media and weaponized autism.

    I think it’s satire. Bringing to everyone’s attention to Donald’s big whopper: “I haven’t called Russia in 10 years”
