Claire McCaskill Immediately Blamed 'F*cking Russians' for Clinton Election Loss

McCaskill has called DNC lawsuit on Russian election meddling a 'silly distraction'

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) immediately blamed the "f*cking Russians" for Hillary Clinton's loss, according to Michael Isikoff and David Corn.

The comment is revealed in Russian Roulette, a book released last month by Isikoff and Corn that recounts the efforts by Russia to influence the 2016 election. The reporters say McCaskill was already blaming the Russians on Election Night.

"Late on Election Night, when it seemed Trump was going to win, Senator Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat close to Clinton, walked past a reporter and muttered, ‘Can you believe this? The fucking Russians," Isikoff and Corn write.

McCaskill's Republican opponent Josh Hawley is pointing to the Election Night comment as evidence that she is part of the Democratic effort to blame Clinton's defeat on Russia. McCaskill last week criticized the Democratic National Committee for filing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit alleging that Trump campaign officials conspired with Russia to win the election, calling it a "silly distraction."

The big question is not if but why. WHY would the Russians want Trump to win. makes no sense.
So, if it makes no sense, it probably didn't happen.
Liberals are acting like kids who just found out the Easter bunny isn't real. It's taking them a long time to get over it.

Claire, were any Russians who weren't fornicating at all responsible, or just those who were sexually active? Drain the swamp!
