Harry Reid Takes Time Out From Retirement to Blast Trump, Kelly

John Kelly Iraq Islam Muslim US Army Marine Corps general

Just hours before Johnson's funeral in Florida, Trump responded Saturday in a string of early morning tweets, posting, "I hope the Fake News Media keeps talking about Wacky Congresswoman Wilson in that she, as a representative, is killing the Democrat Party!"

After a video emerged Friday to contradict White House chief of staff John Kelly's attack on Wilson as a grandstander at a 2015 Federal Bureau of Investigation ceremony, Trump said in an interview with Fox Business Network that Wilson's criticism of Kelly was "sickening". Jones-Johnson said she did not record the conversation.

Wilson also addressed John Kelly's complete mischaracterization of a speech she gave back in 2015. And, in a comment that seems unlikely to be the last word, he said he actually had had a "very nice call", with the family of Sgt.

Sanders also suggested that reporters should let the matter drop and should not be challenging Kelly, a retired three-star Marine general.

But the video of Wilson's speech at the ceremony, posted by the Sun-Sentinel in South Florida, shows Wilson didn't mention obtaining funding but talked about her role in a bipartisan push on short notice to win approval for the FBI's request to name the office for two special agents killed in a gun battle, and effusively praised the Federal Bureau of Investigation, first responders and the military. "But he can't just go on TV and lie on me". And on a Facebook Live edition of the "White House Brief", I explain why her numerous appearances on the news expose her for the fraud, liar, and national embarrassment that she is.

Democrats, stung by the loss of the White House in 2016 and now the minority party in both houses of Congress, are wrapping up their first national gathering since February.

In fact, the chief of staff said that when Trump took office, he advised him against making those calls: "I said to him, 'Sir there's nothing you can do to lighten the burden on these families'". Sanders refused to discuss the details of the operation, including whether Trump authorized it, while it was being investigated.

However, newly released video showed Kelly misrepresented Wilson's 2015 remarks and she did not take credit for funding the building. Johnson's aunt, who raised the soldier from a young age, said the family took that remark to be disrespectful. She says that the president was incredibly insensitive on the call, reportedly telling Johnson her husband "knew what he was getting into". At the airport, widow Myeshia Johnson leaned in grief across the flag-draped coffin after a military guard received it.

Reid, 77, who left the Senate in January after 30 years, was referring to Kelly's appearance in the White House briefing room on Thursday, at which he defended how Trump handled a call this week to the widow of one of the four USA servicemen killed this month during a raid in Niger.
