Pelosi Accuses Trump of Putting Her in Grave Danger
Hot Air reports:
“After President Trump revoked the use of military aircraft to travel to Afghanistan, the delegation was prepared to fly commercially to proceed with this vital trip to meet with our commanders and troops on the front lines,” [Pelosi spokesman Drew] Hammill said.
Overnight, he added, a new State Department threat assessment indicated “that the President announcing this sensitive travel had significantly increased the danger to the delegation and to the troops, security, and other officials supporting the trip. . . . This morning, we learned that the Administration had leaked the commercial travel plans as well.”
They leaked the commercial travel plans too? To whom? That’s a serious allegation, all but accusing the White House of having deliberately created a security risk to Pelosi to deter him from making it to the region on her own. Who did that? Name names.
Besides not having an iota of evidence, the White House says Hammill’s full of it:
A WH official calls it "a flat out lie" that the admin leaked details of Pelosi's commercial travel last night, as her spox claims. There doesn't appear to be evidence that those specific plans were leaked, though Trump did announce the trip and encourage her to fly commercial.— Sarah Westwood (@sarahcwestwood) January 18, 2019
This is what happens when you're called out for a tantrum over a $5 billion outlay, Nancy. Deal with it.
