Claire McCaskill Claims She’d Never Meet With Russian Ambassador, But Tweets Prove She Has
In a pointed tweet Thursday, Democratic Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill attacked Attorney General and her former Senate colleague Jeff Sessions for meeting with the Russian ambassador during the 2016 election, saying she would never meet or call the Russian ambassador.
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.

There’s, uh, just one problem with that claim. Well, two problems really.
Off to meeting w/Russian Ambassador. Upset about the arbitrary/cruel decision to end all US adoptions,even those in process.
