McEnany slams Pelosi’s ‘politicization’ of alleged Russian bounties

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany isn’t playing any games with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

After Pelosi jumped on an unverified report that the Russian government had placed bounties on American soldiers lives in Afghanistan, McEnany fired back that Pelosi was “playing politics” and “entirely off-base” in her claims that Trump had ignored intelligence that endangered US service members lives. 

After the New York Times published the shocking report, Pelosi immediately requested that Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and CIA director Gina Haspel brief Congress about the claims immediately.

“This is as bad as it gets, and yet the president will not confront the Russians on this score, denies being briefed,” Pelosi said during a Sunday interview. “I don’t know what the Russians have on the president, politically, personally, financially, or whatever it is. But he wants to ignore, he wants to bring them back to the G-8 despite the annexation of Crimea and invasion of Ukraine.”

McEnany rebuked Pelosi’s claims that she wants to know what “the Russians have on the president.” She’s clearly already eyeing resurrecting the failed and debunked Russia collusion case.

“This president has been very tough on Russia, sanctioning a new Russian target, closing Russian consulates, so she’s just off-base on her facts there,” McEnany said on Monday.

“What she’s doing, she’s taking a report based on anonymous sourcing that was just dead wrong. The New York Times was wrong, believe it or not, and she’s politicizing it,” McEnany blazed.

The Pentagon corroborated Trump’s response that the claims were not credible in a statement released on Monday:

The Department of Defense continues to evaluate intelligence that Russian GRU operatives were engaged in malign activity against United States and coalition forces in Afghanistan. To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports.
