Democrats are going after Jeff Sessions for doing his job and meeting with a Russian ambassador while part of the Armed services committee. One Democrat who railed against Sessions was Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO).
McCaskill made it sound as if members of the Armed Services committee would NEVER meet with the Ambassador from Russia, so Sessions meeting MUST have been in connection to Trump’s campaign.
McCaskill tweeted attacking Sessions saying:
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.

That sounds good and all, but as it turns out…
IT’S A COMPLETE LIE!
McCaskill met with the Russian Ambassador in 2013 and 2015.
Off to meeting w/Russian Ambassador. Upset about the arbitrary/cruel decision to end all US adoptions,even those in process.

There is even a photo of the meeting!
Democrats have some nerve to attack session when they did even worse.
We are witnessing a political witch hunt against our new Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Democrats are DYING to connect President Trump to Russia in any way they can and they are getting desperate.
There is no basis to suggest Sessions committed any crime at all for doing his job as a Senator on the Armed Services Committee.
This is just yet another attempt to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and it’s disgraceful. Shame on these Democrats for attempting to ruin the career of a great man.
They just can’t accept the fact that they lost this election, and they are using every dirty tactic they can think of to take this administration down.
