Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is devastated. They just found the body, and she is spinning the news like never before. She has put politics before her own country once again.
In a brief statement, Pelosi praised the defeat of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, but in nearly the same breath, she accused President Trump of excluding Congress from being notified before the raid took place.
“The House must be briefed on this raid, which the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified of in advance, and on the Administration’s overall strategy in the region,” said Pelosi.
However, Trump himself noted that leaking has become a major problem. “We were going to notify them last night but we decided not to do that because Washington leaks like I’ve never seen before,” Trump said.
As he made the announcement, he also said, “We notified some; others are being notified as I speak.” Who can blame him? Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is a notorious leaker — as are many top congressional Democrats.
Instead of simply celebrating with Americans nationwide that Baghdadi is gone, Pelosi and Schiff felt compelled to spend time criticizing Trump. This is just further proof that Democrats cannot be trusted with any kind of leadership.
