VIDEO: Newt Blasts Pelosi for Scolding Trump Over Not Being Informed on the Baghdadi Raid

Former Speaker of the house called the idea that politicians such as Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff needed to be “briefed” on the Baghdadi raid “ridiculous.”

Along with a clip of his appearance on Fox and Friends, Newt tweeted:

The idea that politicians need to be briefed on a military operation while young men &women are risking their lives is ridiculous. When I was Speaker, there were operations I wasn’t briefed on until over. Pelosi knows this, but couldn’t resist an opportunity to attack Pres. Trump


Michael Feliz responded “A M E N Speaker …Its too bad that there is A Fake speaker who has lost all Sense of what it is to be American”

Moments after Trump announced the successful Baghdadi raid, Nancy Pelosi released the following statement.


“Americans salute the heroism, dedication and skill of our military and our intelligence professionals and acknowledge the work of our partners in the region.  We are relieved that no U.S. personnel died in this daring raid.

“The death of al-Baghdadi is significant, but the death of this ISIS leader does not mean the death of ISIS.  Scores of ISIS fighters remain under uncertain conditions in Syrian prisons, and countless others in the region and around the world remain intent on spreading their influence and committing acts of terror. 

“This month, the House passed a joint resolution on an overwhelmingly bipartisan 354-60 basis which rejects President Trump’s green-lighting of Turkish aggression into Syria against our Kurdish partners, and calls on him to present a clear strategy to defeat ISIS.

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.  Our military and allies deserve strong, smart and strategic leadership from Washington.”
