You’ve probably heard the BIG CONTROVERSY of the day is that Attorney General Jeff Sessions once met with a Russian ambassador for purposes of discussing pretty much anything other than the 2016 election (come on guys – the man was a senator. He had other things to worry about while the rest of us were getting that crap sandwich force-fed to us).
I guess the Washington Post couldn’t take all the praise and positivity over the president’s speech to Congress. They just HAD to dig up some drama that would make the Trump admin look bad. Ugh.
Anyway – Senator Claire “Blinky” McCaskill wanted to get in on the Jeff Sessions dogpile because, Democrat. To the point where she insisted that she, as a member of the Armed Services Committee, has NEVER met with any Russian ambassadors. EVER –
Except, she actually has done met with Russian ambassadors. Twice. And she tweeted about it both times –
Then you’ve got to wonder – these are just the instances that Blinky actually committed to Twitter. Were there other meetings that she didn’t inform her Twitter faithful about as well? Maybe we need to organize a special investigative committee! I mean, since we’re talking about hanging Jeff Sessions out to dry for barely saying “Hello” to one of them.
Blinky did try to explain herself, which basically amounted to her saying “Oh yeah – I totally forgot about those meetings!”
So, memo to senators: No contact with Russia! EVER! (Unless you’re a Democrat and can get away with “not recalling” that the meeting took place. Then it’s okay.)
