Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, has become rather famous this week. After it was revealed that Jeff Sessions had actually met the man twice the media — which is earning the name ‘the opposition party’ every day — went utterly rabid and accused Sessions of being a liar, at best, to insinuating he had been suborned by Russian intelligence. This from the source of truthiness, CNN
Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, is considered by US intelligence to be one of Russia’s top spies and spy-recruiters in Washington, according to current and former senior US government officials.
Sessions, it seems, is not the only one who has met with Krislyak and denies it.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday that she’s never met with the current Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.
“Not with this Russian ambassador, no,” Pelosi told POLITICO’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer during a Playbook interview, when asked whether she had ever met with the Russian envoy.
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.

Here we have the House minority leader lying to the American public about her meeting with Russia’s top spy recruiter. Any sensible person would see that this calls for a full-fledged FBI investigation of Pelosi and her ties to Russia because if she didn’t have something to hide she wouldn’t have lied about the meeting.
