New SLF Ad Hits “Comrade Claire” McCaskill for Russia Meetings

The Senate Leadership Fund is blasting the Missouri senator for her lie about never meeting the Russian ambassador.

The Senate Leadership Fund (SLF) released a new ad on Wednesday attacking Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) for her lies regarding meetings with the Russian ambassador.

Splicing Soviet and Russian imagery alongside images of McCaskill and her tweets, the ad further illustrates McCaskill’s lie. One frame shows a McCaskill tweet, directly referencing a meeting she had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, next to a photograph of the two officials meeting.

“What she said in this tweet was false. McCaskill did meet the ambassador,” a news anchor narrates.

McCaskill had claimed in March that she had never met the Russian ambassador, but the facts told a different story. She had previously tweeted about a meeting between herself and the ambassador and also attended a black-tie reception at the his home.
