Pelosi Releases Official Statement After Trump Admits He Keeps Russia Informed On U.S. Military Operations, But Not Congressional Leaders
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) issued an official statement on Sunday expressing displeasure with President Donald Trump for keeping congressional leaders in the dark about the military assault that ended with the death of Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — but notified Russia instead.
During an early morning press conference, Trump admitted he did not share information with the so-called “Gang of 8,” but that he keep Russia up to date.
In her statement, Pelosi commended the military for the raid, but slipped in a pointed jab at the president by warning “The House must be briefed on this raid, which the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified of in advance.”
