Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak said on Wednesday that it would take him more than 20 minutes to name all of the Trump officials he's met with or spoken to on the phone. "First, I'm never going to do that," he said. "And second, the list is so long that I'm not going to be able to go through it in 20 minutes." George Mason University professor Eric Shiraev, who has written about Russia, international relations and political psychology, said Kislyak deliberately "made a mistake" by suggesting that American officials got in trouble for meeting with Russians, not for failing to disclose those meetings. "It became almost comical," Shiraev said, noting that the audience was laughing throughout the taping. "He gave the impression that only because he met the American officials they got in trouble." Kislyak told the interviewers that the idea that Russia "picked America's president" was "nonsense" and "very sad."

Oh hell to the yeah? But wait, didn't all the Trumper's, including Orange Julius Caesar himself say that the campaign had no contact with Russians whatsoever? "No Russians" he said, I just watched the video.

I've put on an extra 20 pounds since I started eating all these Nothingburgers. Damn, they're freaking fattening for something supposedly non-existent....

"I will tell you that in not one meeting, not with Sessions, not with anyone else, did we use any kinds of techniques or arguments that I would not be able to speak about publicly," Kislyak said.

Maybe not in one meeting, but presumably in many others. Its like that riddle about having 15 Cents as two coins and one of them isn't a nickel.
