Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently came under fire when it was discovered that he had two undisclosed meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 campaign.
Congressional Republicans have called for Sessions’ recusal, but Democrats have called for his resignation.
In fact, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) criticized Sessions’ actions by saying she would never meet with a Russian ambassador.
“I’ve been on the Armed Services [Committee] for 10 years. No call or meeting [with] Russian ambassador. Ever,” she tweeted.
Unfortunately for McCaskill, her own Twitter history showed that she had met with and called a Russian ambassador — twice.
Twitter users were quick to point out the discrepancy:
McCaskill responded to her Twitter history with the following:
“[Four] years ago went to meeting of many Senators about international adoptions. Russian [Ambassador] also attended,” she justified.
