Pelosi caught in lie about meeting Russian ambassador; Trump calls for investigation

Pelosi crazy Russian lieOn Friday, Politico reported that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was caught in a lie after she claimed to have never met the current Russian ambassador when asked by reporters Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer.

“Not with this Russian ambassador, no,” she said.

But it turns out that she not only met the ambassador, there’s photographic proof.

According to Politico:

But a file photo from Pelosi’s 2010 meeting with Russian President Dmitriy Medvedev shows Kislyak at the table across from Pelosi — then House speaker — and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). Medvedev had been in the country for a meeting with President Barack Obama a day earlier and stopped in on Capitol Hill to meet with congressional leaders as well.

Asked to square Pelosi’s comments with the photo of the meeting, a spokesman said that Pelosi had simply meant she never had a solo meeting with Kislyak.

“Of course, that’s what she meant,” said the spokesman, Drew Hammill. “She has never had a private one-on-one with him.”

Her lie prompted the president to tweet the picture and call for an investigation:

Trump tweet pelosi lieThe tweet was deleted, but we were able to capture it for posterity.

The Schumer investigation he referred to, was in this tweet:


It’s not the first time Democrats have been caught lying about meetings with the Russian ambassador.  On Thursday, we reported that Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., was also caught lying after claiming she never met the ambassador.
