Democrats And The Media Again Spread Fake News

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi falsely claimed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was the only member of the Senate Armed Service Committee to meet with Russian officials during a Politico forum on Friday.

“My point on this is the media has … called a number of members of the Armed Services Committee and haven’t found anyone yet, in addition to Sessions, who has visited and asked for a meeting by the Russians,” Pelosi told the audience.

“[There are] twenty-six members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and Sessions is the only person that has met with them,” Politico’s Jake Sherman said, reaffirming Pelosi’s point.

However, both Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who serve on the Senate Armed Service Committee, have publicly admitted to meeting with the Russian ambassador.
