House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took a veiled shot at President Trump on Sunday after he announced the death of ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, lamenting that the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified in advance of the raid. Trump announced on Sunday that ISIS leader al-Baghdadi died as a result of a raid conducted by U.S. special forces.
Last night the United States brought the worlds number one terrorist leader to justice, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead, Trump said in an address on Sunday. He was the founder and leader of ISIS, the most ruthless and violent terror organization anywhere in the world.
According to the president, the terrorist leader detonated his suicide vest as U.S. forces cornered him.
He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way, Trump said.
According to reports, notable members of Congress including House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) were not briefed on the raid in advance due to the fear of leaks. The president confirmed that in his statement on Sunday.
We notified some; others are being notified as I speak, Trump said.
We were going to notify them last night but we decided not to do that because Washington leaks like Ive never seen before, he continued. There is no country in the world that leaks like we do and Washington is a leaking machine.
Pelosi, while congratulating the dedication and skill of our military and our intelligence professionals, took a veiled shot at Trump in her statement, lamenting that the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified in advance.

Willing to sacrifice our soldiers’ lives for political (power) gain. These people are beyond evil.
Just like she did when Mr. Obama boasted of his personal involvement in the death of Osama bin Laden? Oh, wait, she didn’t do that then, did she?
She didn’t need to know. The Russians did.
Trump was preventing a possible encounter with Russian soldiers in the area. Nancy just wants to whine.
Russia Collusion - Part Deux!
DemocRATS let terrorists go, Trump KILLS them.
Nancy, that's because during the Trump administration, Democrats have actually shot at Republicans. Something the Russians haven't even done.
Almost 80 and still a spoiled child
Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified
Not your airspace, witch.
Hope Trump calls Pelosi on her bogus claim: The Russians were not notified of the raid, they were simply told “we will be moving through your area tonight on two occasions, don’t be alarmed and start shooting we are not attacking you”.
You can’t be trusted with anything Nancy. Just like the rest of your communistic democrats.
Die Nancy, you will NOT be missed.
He explained that this morning, but she was too busy adding shots of coffee to her mug of Jameson to catch it
The Russians need to know, if they did, because we don’t want them attack our forces with anti air missiles.. It is called De-conflicting. The President’s only legal obligation is to tell Congress within 48 hours of committing troops. That is the requirement under the questionably legal “War Powers Act”.
You have no power here Nancy and Chuckie
Which goes to show we can trust the Russians more than we can trust our own elected representatives.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it Nancy.
Since Nan and company are none of those things, they were not notified.
I have no doubt that Shifty Shiff would sacrifice all of those lives to win the news cycle against Trump. I have no doubt. Good decision Mr. President.
“The Russians leak less than the Dems.”
True. And not only that, the Russians aren’t Communists!;)
If I had it my way, there is NO Democrat in the Congress who would have a security clearance!
