McCaskill Admits Donation to Foundation Connected to Russian Ambassador


Recommended Posts


Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) admitted Tuesday that she, her husband, and their private family foundation donated a total of $1,000 to the American-Russian Cultural Cooperation Foundation, on whose board of directors Russian ambassadorSergey Kislyak serves as honorary chairman.

“Kislyak’s meetings with current and former officials in the administration of President Donald Trump are one part of investigations into Russia’s influence on the 2016 American election by congressional committees and special counsel Robert Mueller,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:

Referring to stories in March describing McCaskill appearing at events where Kislyak also attended after tweeting that she’d had no encounters with the Russian ambassador, Senate Leadership Fund spokesman Chris Pack said the revelations about the donor and dinner at the Russian embassy continued a “web of lies” that McCaskill has constructed around her encounters with Kislyak.

But McCaskill said she had not even talked to Kislyak at that 2015 dinner, that the donation was at the behest of friends of Symington, and that Republicans and Democrats for years had supported the organization.

“They’d better call George Bush and the list of all the Republicans that have been involved in this over all the years,” McCaskill said, pointing out that several current and past Republican senators have served as honorary heads of galas or other events of the foundation. She said the effort by opponents trying to make a campaign issue of the donation to the Russian-American cultural group “is just them trying to be nasty.”

Previously, McCaskill had claimed she had never met the Russian ambassador. In March, Breitbart News reported that “Claire McCaskill (D-Mo) sent out a misleading Tweet on Thursday claiming that she had never, ‘ever’ met or spoken with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, while previous Tweets showed she met and spoke to the Russian official in 2013 and again in 2015.”


Who are the real friends of Russia?

Trump must be...  I understand that he has a friend who drinks this on the weekends.  

Finally a real connection.
