Chris Wallace Grills Mike Pence: Why Not Inform Pelosi About al-Baghdadi Raid? Does Trump Not Trust Her?

|

During an interview on "FOX News Sunday," host Chris Wallace asked Vice President Mike Pence why top Congressional Democrats including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi were not told in advance about the raid to kill ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

"Washington is a leaking machine," the president said during a press conference announcing the mission was successful.





“Does the president not trust the speaker of the House with sensitive national security information?” Wallace asked Pence.

“I don’t think that was the implication at all,” Pence said. “I think from the time we got actionable intelligence, the president’s total focus here was on a successful mission and the safety of American troops.”

“But why didn’t he tell Nancy Pelosi?” Wallace repeated.
