Senator claire mccaskill (D-MO) is a liar. A liar who is lying in an effort to take out Jeff Sessions as Attorney General.
How do I know this for a fact? Because – with a major hat tip to Paul Mirengoff of powerlineblog.com – we find that, mccaskill tweeted:
“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.”
But, Paul has researched mccaskill’s twitter account and this is what he found there:
McCaskill’s own tweets show that she has met and talked on the phone with the Russian ambassador. On January 30, 2013, she tweeted: “Off to meeting w/Russian ambassador. Upset about the arbitrary/cruel decision to end all US adoptions, even those in process.”
And on August 15, 2015, she tweeted: “Today calls with British, Russian, and German Ambassadors re: Iran deal.”
“No call or meeting w/ Russian ambassador. Ever”?
Liar. Fraud. Phony.
Now, where’s the retraction? Where’s the apology? Where are the demands that SHE be investigated?
Is it that claire mccaskill assumed – with considerable justification – that mainstream media would either not check the truthfulness of her comment or, if it did, would look the other way when they found out she was a lying pile of crap.
The behavior of Democrats and the behavior of media regarding Donald Trump and his people are in a competition to see who can be the most dishonest and depraved. So far they are tied…both at the bottom of the barrel. But mccaskill may have put Democrats ahead.
How proud they must be.
UPDATE: When confronted with the tweets she herself had put up, mccaskill said this…about one of the two:
“The Russian ambassador has never called me. The Russian ambassador has never requested a meeting. I have never met with the Russian ambassador one-on-one,” McCaskill said. “I went to a meeting on adoptions, and he was there. But it was a bunch of senators. And it had nothing to do with the Armed Services Committee.”
In other words, “Yeah, I did meet with him. But not the way you think.”
Isn’t that what Sessions was saying?
My assessment of claire mccaskill as a liar stands as written.
