Senator Claire McCaskill Lied About Meeting Russian Ambassador

The Russian scandal storyline has been backfiring on liberals with regularity lately.First, earlier this week, you had CNN attempt to push a fake collusion story involving a Trump ally.Now there’s this – Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill used her and her husband’s foundation to pay for a November 2015 visit to the home of Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

It was a visit she had never revealed but had exposed on Monday. In fact, if you backtrack far enough, you’ll see that McCaskill flat-out denied ever having a meeting or taking a phone call from the Russian ambassador.


But she did.


And now it’s been revealed she had dinner with him AND made an undisclosed donation to his foundation!

Via the Free Beacon:

Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill (Mo.) used a personal foundation to pay for a dinner she attended at Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s Washington, D.C., residence. The senator had failed to disclose her role in the foundation until earlier this month.


McCaskill’s attendance at the dinner was accompanied by an $873 payment to the American-Russian Cultural Cooperation Foundation, where Kislyak serves on the board of directors as honorary chairman.

Imagine if you will, a scenario under which President Trump claimed to have never spoken to a Russian ambassador, only to find out he lied and had dinner with him, and then made a donation to his organization.

You’d literally have Chuck Schumer crying and Maxine Waters chanting ‘impeach 45’ on the national news for the next week!

Will the scandal for McCaskill blow wide open the way it would for the President?



McCaskill better hope the holiday week arrives quickly and washes away this scandal down the memory hole. Or she may have some ‘splaining to do.

Should McCaskill be investigated for using an undisclosed foundation to donate to the Russian ambassador? Tell us what you think below!
