Photo Shows Nancy Pelosi Lied about Meeting Russians Needs to Resign

"WASHINGTON D.C.--  JUNE 25, 2010 Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, Russian Federation president Dmitry Medvedev (R) at a meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California.

But a file photo from Pelosi's 2010 meeting with Russian President Dmitriy Medvedev shows current US Russian Ambassador 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.
Asked to square Pelosi's comments with the photo of the meeting, a spokesman said Pelosi simply meant she never had a solo meeting with Kislyak.

 “Leader Pelosi’s answer to the question today was clearly about private, one-on-one meetings, which she has never had with Ambassador Kislyak," Hammill said. "The Ambassador was incidental to the 2010 meeting between then-Russian President Medvedev and then-Speaker Pelosi. Also visible in the picture is Texas Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry. And a Democratic source noted that alongside Pelosi — but obscured in the picture — is former House GOP leader Eric Cantor.
