Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff are angry President Donald Trump did not notify the Democrats about the raid that led to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. They both were enraged and decided to make it about the “Russians,” complaining Vladimir Putin knew beforehand but they did not. Well, that’s when Trump gave them both a huge reality check and shut them up. You’ll love this.
In a televised announcement from the White House on Sunday morning, President Trump confirmed to the nation that al-Baghdadi had “died like a dog [and a] coward,” adding that the world would now be a “much safer place.”
“Last night, the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice,” Trump said. “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead. He was the founder and leader of ISIS, the most ruthless and violent terror organization anywhere in the world.”
“He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way,” Trump said, describing the raid as “absolutely perfect.”

Immediately, the Democrat leaders were incensed. How dare Trump carry out an important mission and not notify them in advance.
Pelosi reacted with scorn. In a statement released on Sunday, she praised the “heroism, dedication and skill of our military and our intelligence professionals” before going on to excoriate the president.
“The House must be briefed on this raid, which the Russians but not top congressional leadership were notified of in advance,” she said.
Trump notified those foreign leaders and our allies in advance just as all presidents do before taking action in any tumultuous region of the world.
Adam Schiff told ABC’s This Week the decision to cut out the Democrats on the Gang of Eight was a mistake.
“If something had gone wrong, had we gotten into a firefight with the Russians, it’s to the administration’s advantage to say, ‘We informed Congress we were going in, we gave them the chance to give feedback.’ That wasn’t done,” Schiff said.
Trump gives Pelosi and Schiff a huge reality check.
Trump did inform the Republicans who sit on the Gang of Eight. There was one huge reason he refused to give Adam Schiff, who sits on that committee, or any Democrat a head’s up. Trump shamed Pelosi, Schiff, and all the Democrats with the truth.
“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. You know that, I know that, we all know that. I’ve watched Adam Schiff leak, he’s a corrupt politician,” Trump said during an impromptu press conference at Andrews Air Force Base Monday morning.
"I think Adam Schiff is the biggest leaker in Washington. You know that. I know that. We all know that." @realDonaldTrump explains his decision to not tell Dem leadership about ISIS raid.

Yesterday when asked about Nancy Pelosi not getting informed ahead of time, Trump gave a similar response. “No, I didn’t. I didn’t do that. I wanted to make sure this kept secret,” Trump said. “I don’t want to have people lost.”
Shifty Schiff was caught red-handed leaking Donald Trump Jr.’s closed-door testimony on the bogus Trump-Russia investigation to CNN back in 2017. In fact, Schiff couldn’t deny it.
On December 6th, 2017. Donald Trump Jr. was testifying behind closed doors to Schiff’s House Intel Committee. Trump Jr. and his attorneys were told to hand over their cell phones. During the 8-10 hour hearing, people started to wonder what the heck Shifty Schiff was doing because he kept “excusing himself.”
Trump Jr.’s attorneys purposely fed Shifty Schiff the wrong date on emails to see if he would take the bait. Sure enough, within hours CNN was reporting the bogus date even though Trump Jr. was still testifying. Later, Schiff denied leaking and claimed he was “exposing” Donald Trump Jr.’s collusion with Russians.
That’s just one example of many times Schiff and his Democrat cohorts leaked classified information to the media. Schiff has been doing the same thing with his phony impeachment inquiry. There’s nothing “classified” being discussed down in his basement dungeon hearings, but that hasn’t stopped him from putting a gag order on all the GOP committee members present.
That way Schiff can shape a fake narrative about the testimony when he leaks cherry-picked info from the hearings to his buddies in the mainstream media.
President Trump had every right to not include Pelosi, Schiff, and the Democrats in this military operation to kill al-Baghdadi. They have shown no problem putting their hate for Trump over and above everything else. Really it was a no-brainer to keep them out of this important operation as they can’t be trusted to put America first.
