Democrat Claire McCaskill Caught Lying About Meeting With Russian Ambassador

ZeroPointNow's picture

updated with NYT stealth delete!

Democrats have two major problems; compulsive lying, and they suck at technology. The DNC and Hillary Clinton's campaign having been hacked by 5 to 7 foreign intelligence agencies vs. the RNC and Trump's data security is a great example of the latter - though perhaps the best combination of questionable ethics and technological ineptitude was the episode in which Hillary Clinton's incompetent IT guy crept onto Reddit during the Benghazi investigation to ask how he could strip Hillary's email address from (legally) archived records.

The latest example of lying while sucking at technology comes to us from Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO), who tried her best to pile on the Russophobic Jeff Sessions witch hunt by emphatically tweeting about how she's never had a call or meeting with the Russians. Ever. Unfortunately for Claire, she forgot about the two times she not only did that, but tweeted about it! 

Witness this epic fail:

Really Claire?

Too bad Claire didn't think to use Twitter's advanced search like Redditors did about 5 minutes after her tweet. Considering the fervor over Jeff Sessions today - with top Democrats demanding he step down for lying (which was debunked within hours, yet still resulted in his recusal from any inquiries into Russian election interference), we are left to wonder when Claire McCaskill will tender her resignation, you know - for actually lying.

Update: And lookie here, the Failing NYT quoted McCaskill and then did a stealth delete!

The Fake News of Record is the real issue. Self-censorship of reporting a lie told by a Democrat politician. No indication that the story has been changed from its original form, and it's not even a correction--she really made the tweet. This is an outrageous scandal.

So, um, if both parties lie, then it's okay?

I wonder if the Hillary campaign was meeting with the Russians during the election cycle...hmm?

I'm still catching up. Probably drank too much l/n.

Wow 5 - 7 Intelligence Agencies!

"... The DNC and Hillary Clinton's campaign having been hacked by 5 to 7 foreign intelligence agencies ..."

Jeeze. Well they were wide open and that has been the narrative.

This is news?

Since when is posting on Twitter the same as testifying under oath to Congress?

And Trump doesn't lie on Twitter and then try to delete earlier tweets that expose his lie?

Very selective interpretation in the comments here.  You guys need to get a grip on scope and similarity.  Go back to school and learn about objectivity.

You should ask Hillary, Clapper and Holder about lying to Congress under oat bastard!!!

When conducting a media assassination, make sure to the gun points towards enemy.  Democrat hypocrisy was always funny as fuck, but now it's going to destroy them.

Insurrector's picture

Hypocrisy is an equal opportunity affliction.  The Republicans are guilty as hell too.

The ACA is based on the HEART Act (Health Equity and Access Reform Today Act of 1993) - a Republican sponsored bill in response to 'Hillarycare.'  Both of these attempts to reform healthcare share the individual mandate and many features outined in a 1989 Heritage Foundation paper.  There are some differences like the ACA expands medicaid and requires employers to contribute to monthly premiums, while the HEART Act (and other similiar Republican bills) add so-called 'tort reform.'

So why is the Republican Party against it?  Fucking hypocrites all!  Because the pledged to be they party of "No" against Obama - put party before country and their own ideas.

ZeroPointNow's picture

Hey, if you catch Republicans in hilarious lies on Twitter - send 'em over and I'll be happy to post. Has to be at least as funny as McCaskill's though & relevant to whatever's going on. 

fwiw I agree with you on ACA and bullshit rebranding of the same bad ideas.

Is a lie any less a lie, but save for the pomp & grandstanding of a Congress...?

Or perhaps, only when sanctioned by an approved media source...?

Insurrector's picture

Not sure sanctioned is the past tense verb you meant.  But I get your point.

But we, as a culture, do see gradations in the world of lies.  We have white lies we tell to protect others from information they can't handle or would be needlessly hurtful. We have lies, committed to cover up legal but embarrassing acts, that are contextual too.  When Bill Clinton lied about having sex with Monica Lewinsky, which is not a crime, he was impeached.  If we lie to help a murderer escape, we are an accessory after the fact, even though we didn't commit the crime.

Using your same argument, Trump lies on his twitter account are the same in magnitude as any other lie.  But Trump is not under oath to Congress when he tweets.  Sessions was under oath, and as AG he should better fucking know better.  We are left to wonder if he will lie again, or 'be careless with the facts' again.

The 'equivalent' argument that all lies are equal is an absolute moralism that leads to division and tyranny.  The world is not just two shades.

The reality is that Sessions had a story that changed once the Washington Post article hit the stands.

God bless the Washington Post!

Well, then Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer should be calling for McCaskill to resign.

Lying is part of job descrption for Demorats. If you can't lie then you can't have the job.

Expat's picture

Yes, and since it worked so well, it appears the Republicans have decided to adopt it as well.

What part of hypocrisy is confusing to you?  The election of Trump was supposed to herald a new era and a draining of the swamp.  Instead, it's the same old bullshit of partisan politics.  There are no policies and a never-ending series of gaffes, lies, retractions, and silliness.  The best you can do is blame the Democrats including Obama and Hillary, neither of who is in power any more.

Grow the fuck up, snowflake.  You won.  So grow a pair and govern.  If all you can do is whine about the democrats, then you might as well give up.  And if you justify the lying from Trump's people and the republicans, you are no better than a democrat which is pretty fucking sad.

You are right! Hillary as a live- long Democrap has won the tittle of "Queen of Lies" or was it "The Greatest Liar on Earth"???

This story potentially dwarfs Watergate!

You don't take heavy flak until you are closing in on the target. This witch hunt is good news - Sessions must be closing in on something big to be getting a coordinated effort like this. Lets hope he pulls the trigger on whatever it it.

Exactly.  I think the the release of the Obama's DOJ Slush Fund supporting far left organizations is just the tip of the iceberg.   I said it before and I will say it again, it will get incredibly ugly before it gets better.  Buckle up!

Chuck Schumer met with Putin in NYC.

This picture deserves to go viral.

Are there any more pictures of democrats with Putin? They should go viral too.

""I'm telling you guys... as I stated in this post. The Democrats and Vladimir Putin used to be very close and something happened. Something occurred between them that caused the mere mentioning of Putin's name to be a thought crime.""

Many people in the US have a problem understanding all this as they do not know who people like Nudelma or Schumer are and how their family connections fit in large picture of World History.

Yehh, something happened. Putin told the Zionists in Russia "Do business but stay out of Politics with the money you make." They didn't listen and one crook named Khodorkovsky paid dearly. Khodorkovsky made his fortune on the backs the ordinary Russians with the help of ..... tra la la

"During the ensuing Russian state prosecution of Yukos, it came to light that Khodorkovsky had also secretly made a contract with London’s Lord Rothschild not merely to support Russian culture via the Open Russia Foundation of Khodorkovsky. In the event of his possible arrest (Khodorkovsky evidently knew he was playing a high-risk game trying to create a coup against Putin) the 40% share of his Yukos stocks would pass into the hands of Lord Rothschild."

The rest exited Russia pronto and the attack on Putin began.

Can we tie the Private Federal Reserve and Russia together in a plot to destroy US Pensions? Looks like over 16 years we have paid out at least $72.8 Billion dollars... and with 9 years of low interest rates more and more pensions are going under, Texas Police and Firemen, Central States Pension (Truckers), New York Teamsters/Truckers ... and they aren't covered by PBGC.

Monthly Treasury Report 30 Sep 2002, shows Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation under Department of Labor

2016 Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation outlays = $6.2 Billion
2015 Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation outlays = $6.1 Billion
2014 Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation outlays = $6 Billion
2013 Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation outlays = $5.9 Billion
2012 Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation outlays = $5.9 Billion
2011 Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation outlays = $5.9 Billion

2010 Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation outlays = $5.6 Billion (new Normal)
2002 Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation outlays = $2.1 Billion
2001 Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation outlays = $1.4 Billion

Someone needs to do a deep pension analysis to see what's at risk and from where. That person is not me. If one exists, I'd love to see it.

It's going to be ugly when the party stops, and we're already seeing canaries start to die.

I am from the Uk and am beyond bemused about this whole 'he/she spoketo the Russian amabassador' story.

Surely high up Govt officials from both Republican and Democrat side as well as senior business people and other influential figures in the US speak to the ambassadors of many countries including Russia all the time as part of normal international relations?

Where is the crime - unless they were plotting to give military secrets away or overthrow the US Govt?

Really I dont see the issue. I get the feeling the US population doesnt care either.

It just seems to me that the Democrats are constaantly alleging without stating it explicitly that meeting with 'Russians' is the some indication of some form of espionage or evidence of illegal activity. It quite clearly isnt. As for seeking to overthrow the US Govt or there is no evdence that the Russians aare doing that either. The Democrats however would fairly cleary like to see the US President out of office and are making it near impossible to form a cabinet.

I can assure you that property owning Americans know that this Russia hysteria is a complete fabricated shit show manufactured by rabid Clintonite zombies, and the only way they can find peace is with a bullet to the temple.

It's a fucking cult.

MiniCooper,

When your party is desperate to point fingers elsewhere, this is the lunatic type behavior you see in the American Progressive Democrat Party.

It is dishonest, reprehensible, illogical, and for them, routine. Its right out of the Alinsky playbook: CALL THEM WHAT YOU ARE.
