President Donald Trump has already called for an investigation into Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's (D-NY) meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2003.  Now, in light of a photo that has surfaced demonstrating that Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) met with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in 2010 after she lied about it, he's calling for an investigation into that meeting.

Trump called for both Schumer and Pelosi to be investigated on Friday morning via Twitter.

“I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it,” Trump tweeted on Friday.

Pelosi told Politico, when asked if she’d ever met with the Russian envoy, “Not with this Russian ambassador, no."

“But a file photo from Pelosi’s 2010 meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev shows Kislyak at the table across from Pelosi — then House Speaker — and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.),” Politico reported. “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,” Politico reported.

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

Oh goodness, now we're getting into whether or not it was a private one-on-one conversation rather than whether she met the man.  That was the question.

This all comes as Attorney General Jeff Sessions has come under fire for meeting with Kislyak in 2016 and not disclosing it during his confirmation proceedings in January.  Of course, such meetings are commonplace, especially for someone like Sessions who is on the Senate Armed Services Committee.  There was no impropriety.

However, Senator Clarie McCaskill sought to chided Sessions because of the failure to disclose the meeting, yet she claimed to have never met with Kislyak in the 10 years she had been serving on the Armed Services Committee.  She was busted on her own Twitter account referencing two meetings.

However, she later tried to weasel her way out of that claim, in the same manner Nancy Pelosi did by claiming that it was not a one-on-one meeting.

Seriously, these people cannot tell the truth to save their lives.  An investigation is probably warranted for Pelosi, Schumer and McCaskill as they have knowingly outed themselves as lying about important meetings that took place.  At least Sessions acknowledged it and it is common practice.
