The democrats are digging in the dark trying to find something against Trump’s Administration. They seem to forget about the time their 30 senate democrats met with Chinese and Iranian diplomats to discuss the Iran deal.. Why didn’t we hear what was discussed? Why did they choose to meet with them secretly? What are the democrats hiding? We know from the past that they don’t have a clean past. So who is calling the kettle black? They get their vicious claws out against Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Pelosi acts like a mad dog with lipstick, beware of the vicious woman.
Sessions not alone: Russian ambassador also met with numerous Democrats
Democrats were aghast after learning Attorney General Jeff Sessions met twice, as a senator, with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. without telling Congress at his confirmation hearing – but it turns out Sergey Kislyak is no stranger to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
The longtime Russian ambassador met with seven then-Democratic senators in a single sit-down in 2013, among other discussions – and reportedly was a frequent visitor to the Obama White House.
As House Speaker Paul Ryan put it Thursday, “We meet with ambassadors all the time.”
The central issue dogging Sessions is not so much that he met with the ambassador but that he claimed during his confirmation hearing he had no “communications” with Russian officials during his time as a Trump campaign surrogate. In a press conference, though, Sessions rejected claims he misled Congress and suggested he was answering in the context of campaign-related discussions, which he maintains he never had.
But some Sessions critics nevertheless portrayed meetings with Kislyak, whose country was accused of meddling in the 2016 campaign, as a rare summit, particularly for a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee like Sessions.
The most forceful such statement came from Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who tweeted that she had “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 was quickly proven untrue.
A pair of tweets first unearthed by National Review’s Charles C.W. Cooke showed McCaskill twice wrote messages about meetings with Kislyak, in 2013 and 2015.
“Off to meeting w/Russian Ambassador. Upset about the arbitrary/cruel decision to end all U.S. adoptions, even those in process,” McCaskill tweeted on Jan. 30, 2013.
On Aug. 6, 2015, McCaskill wrote: “Today calls with British, Russian, and German ambassadors re: Iran deal. #doingmyhomework.”
McCaskill later blamed Twitter’s character limit for the seeming disparity in her claims, suggesting the limit prevented her from being more specific in Thursday’s tweet. She told The Weekly Standard there was “no contradiction,” and clarified she never had a “one-on-one meeting” with the ambassador.
FactCheck.org still labeled McCaskill’s claim as “false.”
McCaskill’s 2013 meeting was the one involving a total of seven Democratic senators. She joined several Republicans and six other Democratic senators that day in an appeal to Kislyak for Moscow to reverse its blockade of U.S. adoptions of Russian children.
Other Democratic senators in that meeting were: Sens. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Maria Cantwell of Washington, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Jack Reed of Rhode Island, Robert Casey of Pennsylvania and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.
Klobuchar said in a statement afterward that she was able to tell Kislyak the stories of families she met in Minnesota. Landrieu is no longer a senator after losing her seat in 2014.
For longtime Washington officials, Kislyak would indeed be a familiar face. He’s been the ambassador to the U.S. since 2008, and served in various posts representing the former Soviet Union in the 1980s.
“I’ve met with the Russian ambassador with a group, in my capacity, with a group of other senators,” Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., told CNN. “That’s in my official capacity. That’s nothing. That’s my job.”
Republican Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, defending Sessions, said he’s spoken with the Russian ambassador as well.
Meanwhile, The Daily Caller reported that Kislyak is listed as visiting the White House at least 22 times between 2009 and 2016. They likely were a mix of personal meetings and group visits. Roughly half of the visits involved broader receptions with other visitors.
Sessions, at his press conference, downplayed any intrigue behind his meetings with the ambassador last year, including one in September at his office. He said they discussed terrorism and Ukraine, among other topics.
Sessions, in trying to tamp down the controversy, announced he would recuse himself from any investigations pertaining to the campaign, amid bipartisan pressure to separate himself from probes regarding Russian meddling in the race.
But some Democrats are still calling for his resignation and a special prosecutor.
“It is insufficient for Attorney General Sessions to recuse himself from any matters concerning the presidential campaign. He must resign,” House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer said in a statement late Thursday.
But why, why are the democrats on a witch hunt. We know now the Russian Ambassador has been a regular at the White House since 2009, why wouldn’t he want to create new relationships with the new administration? This seems to be a lot of nonsense or a setup.
The New York Times confirmed that the Obama Administration set out to sabotage President Trump’s transition to the White House from the start setting up unmovable obstacles and questions that would leave many pondering about the Russian influence. Obama’s Administration scrambled information about Russian meddling and hacking and determined not to let the issue die and even removed such clearance levels. They kept stirring up the black kettle of dissension and illusions not letting anything settle.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he never discussed the 2016 campaign issues with the Russians. Yes, he met with the Russian Ambassador but the Trump campaign and presidential election were never mentioned. It is not unusual for foreign diplomats to meet. Attorney General Jeff Sessions seems to be another innocent Obama target. Then Senator Sessions met him in his office, it wasn’t in secret.
Who knows the next person they may blame might be God! I know of people who prayed for Trump to win the presidency all the way to Africa. It might have been a Divine Intervention. It sounds spiritual to me!
Two weeks ago Senator John McCain traveled to Syria, we don’t know who he met with or talked with…
Senator Chuck Schumer met with the Russians why wasn’t that brought up? He met with Russia’s President Putin. You don’t hear anyone talking about that!
Hillary Clinton made a deal with Russia the Uranium One Deal, why wasn’t that ever brought up?
We saw through the 8 years of Obama’s presidency that he met with several suspicious eyes. We even saw after SEAL TEAM Six killed Osama Bin Laden several of them died in a suspicious helicopter crash, where someone had to give their coordinates for them to be sabotaged. There were many unanswered questions. We saw our top military left to Muslim funerals and their bodies left for desecration. There were a lot of suspicious things during the Obama Administration. Some were, sending weapons to the Mexican Cartel adding fuel to the fire of racial tensions. And stealing from low-income mortgage lenders Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae to support one-legged Obamacare, standing on one wooden leg. Now that Trump is erasing his failed legacy Obama can’t rest. He’s even got the real fast and furious Eric Holder behind him. Things are really starting to stir up in Washington D.C. He’s even created a website where his progressive protestors and agitators can print a manual of Obama grief for our healing and wounded Nation.
Meanwhile, with all the Obama Administration secrecy and denial of President Trump winning the election and moving the Country forward Obama has set up camp just two blocks away from the White House in Washington D.C. where he’s now set up camp, his own progressive coop disguised as democratic to bring the Trump Administration down to protect his failing legacy. We all know his real true agenda is to destroy America and turn her into a third world country of globalism and socialism where he can be a dictator. With news headlines spreading across the Nation that his former Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett and some of his former staff have moved in with him. He even has an office that he calls the west wing. Sounds eerie, narcissistic! Ghostly! Ghost of President Past!
Obama isn’t taking it easy as a retired president. His plans some could say are on the version of treason to bring another president down..

Senator Jeff Sessions was finally confirmed today as the new attorney general. We can finally exhale. Democrat Elizabeth Warren did everything in her power to stop it, but she couldn’t stop fate from happening. No one really had any hard evidence against him, his clear record spoke for itself. Elizabeth Warren was ridiculous going back 30 something years but nothing would stick, she was finally reprimanded and told to sit. You could tell this was another big loss for the Democratic Party that they would have to come to terms on how to be a good loser. Tonight she’s probably a drunk boozer.
President-Elect Donald J. Trump has chosen Alabama Republican Senator, Jeff Sessions to be his attorney general. Sessions was the first senator to endorse him and stood by him through it all. United States Army lieutenant-general Michael Flynn who served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency; is now National Security Adviser. Mike Pompeo of Kansas has been selected for CIA director.
President Trump Tweeted: Pompeo, Trump’s CIA director, is well liked by his House colleagues, and seen as very smart, Intel Cmte member, the pride of Wichita.
Trump’s A-Team’s being assembled as you can see democrats tremble! This is a tough team that you won’t see crumble, throw the pebble and watch it ripple.
