In early March, Sen. Claire McCaskill claimed she never had a “call or meeting” during her 10-year tenure on the Armed Services Committee with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak…but that turned out to be complete bulls**t.
She made this claim after the hit-piece against Jeff Sessions became public, saying he “lied” about meeting with Russians during his confirmation hearing in January.
“No call or meeting w/Russian ambassador. Ever. Ambassadors call members of Foreign [Relations Committee],” she 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.

However, in a brand new interview with CNN, she openly admitted that she attended a ‘black-tie’ event at the Ambassadors home in 2015.
Here’s what she told CNN:
In an interview, McCaskill acknowledged attending the dinner, but she said she only did so because of her long-standing relationship with Symington, whom she said “kind of got me started in politics.” She claimed the 140-character limit on Twitter did not let her clarify that she never met “one-on-one” with the Russian ambassador, and added she “did not” speak with Kislyak at the reception.
McCaskill, who is one of the most vulnerable Democrats up for reelection next year, conceded she should have exercised more caution in her initial tweet.
“I should’ve been careful about the 140 characters and given it context,” McCaskill said. “But it’s not the first or the last time my tweets will get me in trouble.”
After this revelation was confirmed, she got EXPOSED on Twitter:

Democrat, Claire McCaskill, should be taken to the cleaners for her blatant collusion with Russia.
The left is such a hypocritical mess. https://t.co/2h5KPiJ1lg
