Nancy Pelosi Miffed That President Trump Didn’t Consult With Her Before …

It should come as no surprise to anyone that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump don’t quite get along.  In fact, that may be the understatement of 2020 so far.

Pelosi and the Democrats both had to fight back smiles and cheers as Madam Speaker pounded the gavel to signal that articles of impeachment had been passed against the Commander in Chief.  Previous to this, several instances of Trump and Pelosi’s spats have spilled out into the Rose, when one or the other will stomp away from the negotiating table like an insolent child.

Now, in keeping with this grand, childish bickering, Pelosi is now telling the world that she is upset that Trump didn’t check with her first before assassinating Iran’s number one terror mastermind.

In a statement released by the Speaker’s office on Thursday evening, Pelosi demanded an immediate briefing:

“American leaders’ highest priority is to protect American lives and interests.  But we cannot put the lives of American servicemembers, diplomats and others further at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions.  Tonight’s airstrike risks provoking further dangerous escalation of violence.  America – and the world – cannot afford to have tensions escalate to the point of no return.

“The Administration has conducted tonight’s strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) against Iran.  Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.

“The full Congress must be immediately briefed on this serious situation and on the next steps under consideration by the Administration, including the significant escalation of the deployment of additional troops to the region.”

A spokesperson for Pelosi confirmed that she had not been notified in advance and only spoke to Secretary of Defense Mark Esper after the attack.

Pelosi has yet to transmit the already passed articles of impeachment on to the Senate for trial – a maneuver that many believe is meant to somehow garner leverage with Mitch McConnell, who’ll be in charge of the coming adjudication.

The spat continues.
