Trump Defends Keeping Pelosi And Schiff Out Of The Loop On Anti-Terror Raid

Trump kept Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff out of the loop on the terror raid this weekend and for good reason.

They’re both notorious leakers.

Had they leaked anything to the press about this, it could have had disastrous results.

Trump defended his decision.

Trump defends keeping ‘leaker’ Schiff, Pelosi out of the loop on al-Baghdadi raid

President Trump on Monday defended his decision not to give Democratic congressional leaders advance notice of the raid that resulted in the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, saying once again that he was concerned the details would leak out.

When Trump first announced al-Baghdadi’s death Sunday morning, he said he decided not to tell officials, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, because he was afraid leaks could compromise the mission. Speaking to reporters Monday morning, he singled out House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., as the focus of those concerns.

“The only thing is they were talking about why didn’t I give the information to Adam Schiff and his committee, and the answer is because I think Adam Schiff is the biggest leaker in Washington,” Trump said. “You know that, I know that, we all know that. I’ve watched Adam Schiff leak. He’s a corrupt politician. He’s a leaker like nobody has ever seen before.”

Trump, meanwhile, also indicated Monday that he may release some video footage of the raid, which he described in great detail a day earlier.

Is it really any wonder why they were left out?

Trump made the right decision.
