Flashback: Russian Ambassador Visited Obama White House 22 Times

Prior to the testimony given by Attorney General Jeff Sessions before the Senate Intelligence Committee this week, there was a lot of chatter about his third undisclosed meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Depending on whom you read, like the LA Times or the Associated Press, Sessions denied the third meeting, while NBC News says the attorney general said it was “conceivable” a third rendezvous occurred, but he cannot recollect what happened. He did stress that nothing improper had occurred.

Sessions has been under fire for answers he gave to Sens. Al Franken (D-MN) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) about his interactions with the Russians, including two meetings that he did not disclose. At the same time, both questions were within the parameters of the 2016 campaign, not in his former capacity as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. The second meeting at the RNC Convention was facilitated by an initiative from the Obama administration. To rehash, here’s what was asked of Sessions during his confirmation hearing with the Senate Judiciary Committee:

FRANKEN: CNN just published a story alleging that the intelligence community provided documents to the president-elect last week, that included information that “Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump.” These documents also allegedly say “there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.” Again, I’m telling you this as it’s coming out, so, you know.

But if it’s true, it’s obviously extremely serious, and if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?

SESSIONS: Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.

FRANKEN: Very well.


[LEAHY:]  Several of the President-Elect’s nominees or senior advisers have Russian ties. Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after Election Day?

[Sessions] RESPONSE: No.


Yet, Democrats are obsessed about Russia. It’s got to the point where some of them think that any meeting with the Russians is inappropriate. And yes, Democrats have lied about their own meetings with Sergey Kislyak. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have said they did not meet with Kislyak, only to have pictures or past tweets confirm that they did meet him. During the Obama presidency, Sergey Kislyak met with the then-president 22 times. Are we going to have an investigation over that? Probably not—and I’m sure in both Sessions and Obama’s cases, nothing occurred. It was a typical interaction between a foreign official and a member of Congress that occurs daily. In Obama’s case, it was a meeting that comes with the job description.

Via Daily Caller:

The visitor logs, which Obama made public in 2009 in a push for transparency, show that the long-time Russian ambassador to the United States visited the White House at least 22 times between 2009 and 2016.

Kislyak appeared in the logs as recently as September 2016 when he had a meeting scheduled with one of Obama’s senior advisers, John Holdren, in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The other visitors listed at the meeting are Marina W. Gross, Alexander Ermolaev, Alexey Lopatin, Vyacheslav Balakirev and Sergey Sarazhinskiy. Though the appointment was scheduled to begin at 12:00 pm, it does not include an end time.

Kislyak was also listed on the logs in July 2016, March 2016, January 2016, August 2015, April 2014, February 2014, May 2013, February 2013, November 2012, December 2011, July 2011, December 2010, October 2010, May 2010, April 2010, February 2010, March 2010, December 2009 and September 2009.



Uniparty Congress,

Time to shut up. Put the damn Russia crap behind and stop wasting taxpayer money.

There are far more things to work on that this and those most vociferous are just as guilty, if not more so, than those being castigated right now.

We see your delaying tactics and know them for exactly what they are–a coup to take over our country. And a delaying tactic in hopes the citizens of the US will grow weary and their anger will cool. We also know that what you do while delaying is against our constitution and our sovereignty.

If this were a card game, we would see your hand and raise you a call for your own term in prison or at the very least find out all your closet monsters and set them free to be tried in the court of public opinion.

Remember – what you start, you have to be prepared to finish. Are you willing to pay the price? At that point, a tearful “sorry” or “what happens to one happens to all” won’t solve the problem.

Once a fire is lighted, the burning knows only to continue to consume fuel until there is none left.

    I’m taking a guess here but I’d say the average Joe & Joanne are fed up with this ‘Russians’ crap and tune it out whenever it pops up on the tv or radio, like a song you hate. It certainly has gained no traction other than ridicule as far as I can see.

    Assuming Putin is still a committed lefty (which I don’t believe btw), surely the best outcome for any Russian ‘interference’ would have been a Clinton win, wouldn’t it? Then all he’d have to do to gain advantage for Russia would be to show Hillary a big sackful of dollars – she’d blow in her panties and he gets what he wants. Try that on DJT and he’d just go “meh, that’s chump change*. What else ya got?”

    The whole Russia thing is crap, kept fresh and steaming by those who still won’t accept the election result.

    * Or even ‘Trump Change’

      lol descriptive….you would think that right this minute (given the racheted up tension after a downed Syrian plane) that people would stomp and say enough. But that does not fit into the Dem delay, pontiicate, and subterfuge to stop Trump’s momentum.

      • Uriel says:

        It really isn’t about the election so much any more actually. It’s about stopping Trump from doing the things that will drag into the light of day the corruption of the left and the RINOs who back them as well as achieving real success. The less success (they think) then then the more likely they are to again gain control of the government only THIS TIME if they do the country will completely lose its identity. Count on it.

  2. AuntieBS says:

    Democrats are trying to focus the Russian connection on Trump instead of Hillary, who sold 20% of our Uranium supply, then accepted generous “speaking fees” from the Russians. If anything needs investigation it is the Clinton Foundation.

  3. Hardnox says:

    CNN did a poll asking if President Trump should be investigated? Much to the shock of the CNN assholes 70% of responders said “NO”.

    The UniParty asshats are out of tune as usual. Keep pushing and the response they’ll get will be ugly.
