From The Hill:
The top Democrats in Congress are asking to be briefed on a U.S. military raid that President Trump said led to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi…
“The House must be briefed on this raid, which the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified of in advance, and on the Administration’s overall strategy in the region. Our military and allies deserve strong, smart and strategic leadership from Washington,” [Nancy Pelosi stated].
She noted that the House passed a resolution 354-60 earlier this month rejecting Trump’s “green-lighting of Turkish aggression into Syria against our Kurdish partners, and calls on him to present a clear strategy to defeat ISIS.”
Trump said on Sunday morning that some congressional leaders, including Pelosi, were not notified of al-Baghdadi’s death ahead of his public announcement.
He said he didn’t notify leaders because of “Washington leaks,” which, he said, could have killed U.S. forces. No U.S. forces were killed in the raid.
