Sen. Claire McCaskill, who once said that she has never met Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, is now under fire for not failing to disclose that she attended a 2015 black-tie reception at the residence of the ambassador.
CNN reported that the Democratic senator was photographed at the reception of the November 2015 event.
Back in March, McCaskill wrote on Twitter that she never met or spoke on the phone with Kislyak.
This turned out to be false as two of her older tweets showed that she was “off to meeting” with Kislyak and that she was speaking on the phone with the Russian Ambassador.
The 2015 photograph also showed McCaskill was present at the event, which honored former Democratic Rep. James Symington, who also comes from Missouri and worked for improving U.S.-Russia ties.
The controversy over her tweets began after Attorney General Jeff Sessions did not reveal his meetings with Kislyak during the election year, which raised suspicions to Moscow’s role in interfering with the elections.
100% Fed Up reports:
Is America finally sick and tired of lying, hypocritical Democrats with absolutely no morals or scruples? They’ve proven time and time again that they will stop at nothing to destroy the character of President Trump and anyone in his administration. Americans are watching unethical Democrats fight tooth and nail against a man who has given up a very successful business to save America from the clutch of these utopian socialist fools. Democrats will be lucky if they ever win another election, now that they’ve exposed their true nature to the American voter.
