In an effort to attack the Trump administration, Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill took to Twitter and lied to the American people like a petulant child.
“I’ve been on the Armed Services Com for 10 years. No call or meeting w/Russian ambassador. Ever. Ambassadors call members of Foreign Rel Com.” She tweeted.
It did not take long for the evidence to start showing up that that was a great big lie!

Pictures of her meeting the Russian Ambassador, and even her own Tweets discussing such meetings, came flying out of the woodwork.
She has communicated with the Russian Ambassador, at LEAST twice, to discuss policy matters.
Off to meeting w/Russian Ambassador. Upset about the arbitrary/cruel decision to end all US adoptions,even those in process. She Tweeted on Jan 30, 2013.
The Atlantic has a picture of that very meeting, showing Sen. McCaskill (and a few other senators) sitting across the table from Kislyak.
PolitiFact agrees, and explained how McCaskill tried to make excuses:
McCaskill spokeswoman Sarah Feldman said McCaskill’s interactions with Kislyak were materially different than Sessions’. Sessions met with Kislyak one-on-one around the same time Russian actors are believed to have been meddling in the election. McCaskill, on the other hand, met him in a group setting to discuss adoption policy and in a brief phone call about the Iran nuclear deal, Feldman said.
NOOOO Senator. You said NO MEETINGS! You lied. You Tweeted, “No call or meeting w/Russian ambassador. Ever. Ambassadors call members of Foreign Rel Com”
Senator McCaskill is a BIG FAT LIAR!
Senator Sessions meetings fit EXACTLY with her excuse tho…
The connotation of Senator Franken’s question to Senator Sessions had NOTHING to do with him doing his job as Senator. It was about campaign contact. Al Franken’s question had to do with Senator Sessions’ actions on behalf of the campaign.
The left has lost its mind!
