Pelosi Claims WH Leaked Commercial Travel Plans, WH Swats Back, Calls Accusation a “Flat Out Lie”

Pelosi Claims WH Leaked Commercial Travel Plans, WH Swats Back, Calls Accusation a “Flat Out Lie”

Round 2: Fight!

Thursday gave us what might be one of the greatest news stories of the year, at the very least, of the month.

As Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her entourage were on their way to the airport, they were informed that Trump had denied them access to a federal flight, citing the urgency of shutdown negotiations. More on that story here.

Friday, a spokesman for Pelosi’s office claimed the Trump administration leaked their plans to travel commercially. The administration responded, calling the accusation a “flat out lie.”

From The Daily Mail’s White House correspondent, Francesca Chambers:

And it looks like the administration is correct here. Bloomberg was informed by someone familiar with Pelosi’s travel plans that the delegation was going to take a commercial flight but did not publish the story, not until Pelosi and crew made public allegations.

From Bloomberg:

A person familiar with the congressional delegation’s plans told Bloomberg News earlier on Friday that Pelosi planned to fly commercial to Afghanistan. Bloomberg didn’t publish a report.

Pelosi’s delegation wasn’t the only one grounded. Trump grounded all Congressional delegation excursions until the shutdown is resolved:

Trump, too, cancelled plans:

to the full extent allowed by law.


Even if true (and she offers no evidence as usual), it’s irrelevant. The trip never happened. She is safely behind her world of walls and armed security.

    I bet that Pelosi had a tantrum (Hillary like) when she found out Trump had grounded her.

      I bet so also.

      What I can’t get out of my head however, is wondering if she was planning on picking up Billions of Dollars from her Axis of Evil Allies.

      Honestly you know Nancy would never deign to go any where near those “deplorable” parts of the world without a …..

    This can be settled easily, show the commercial tickets.
    Oh she about to …

    Let me tell you about the time I was about to buy the winning lottery ticket. Just ask my wife, Morgan Fairchild.

      ’bout fell out of the chair….to have been a fly on the wall when the wench got the news……

Now this strikes me as being childish. Its the kind of accusation someone not serious makes in the hope the compliant Democrat media will just run with the story without checking anything.

I think Trump is on to something, as usual. In effect turning the spotlight on Pelosi will lead to intense coverage of Pelosi as she walks to and from and within the capital. She will stop, as she did this morning, so speak to the supplicant press. And the networks will cut to that live, and when Nancy speaks extemporaneously, it’s not pretty. She is exposing herself as a befuddled old granny. And Trump may be ratcheting this up so that she shows up more and more in such impromptu appearances. It will be clear to the public that she is not in control of her faculties.

Anyone want to start a pool on how long it will take the House to elect a new speaker?

She seems to have deluded herself that she can remove both Trump and Pence to become president. Many powerful people, on all sides, must be getting annoyed with her antics and the grid-lock her fantasy is creating.

Grand Master Troll D

Now everyone in American knows about their travels during shutdown ..
Hawaii ,Puerto Rico Brussells Egypt .

The man makes politics interesting.

How would the White House even have known about her commercial travel plans, if any?

Another brilliant “Power Move” from that master strategist Nancy Pelosi, eh CNN?

At this moment in history, I am OK with all of her travel plans being leaked. Not that it actually happened, yet.

I want the WaPo to fact check that there are commercial flights to a war-torn country like Afghanistan.

There are no ‘grave threats’ to Pelosi & Co. There’s only cheap Democrats who don’t want to pay for their own travel expenses.

This is so good!

Not only all the troops in Afghanistan disappointed that they lost their chance to give Pelosi a Bronx Cheer, but now Pelosi won’t even be able to travel to Davos either.

Being Speaker of House just isn’t what it use to be.

Trump exaggerates and lies. Pelosi is an even bigger liar than Trump. If I have to believe one, I’ll believe Trump. There is at least a chance he is exaggerating and not flat-out lying. If Pelosi’s lips are moving, she is lying. See, its just common sense and playing the odds. 🙂

One must marvel at the hypocrisy of politicans. Screaming about 800,000 federal employees going without pay, and hairing off on a three nation junket, delaying any posibility of negotiations.

The irony is even more delicious – lawmakers were arranging the commercial flight bookings through UNSECURED phone lines. If they are worried about who was leaking travel plans, they ought to look in the mirror.

There should be no trouble chartering an aircraft which has transcontinental range. As this junket was already planned, visas should not be a problem. The Congress can pay for its own security to accompany the members and augment that with local government security forces. All it takes is money. And, that is the problem. The Dems want the Administration to pay for the trip.

So, the Dems reportedly book several seats on commercial flights. Then SOMEONE “leaked” the travel plans to Bloomberg [hardly an enemy of the liberal Dems], which Nancy Pelosi reports BEFORE Bloomberg makes this information public. And we are supposed to believe that the WH did this?

    I was wondering why I hadn’t read about this until Pelosi and staff started making false claims

    I have to wonder if the part about them even trying to go commercial is even true

Obviously, Nanci Palsi’s triumphant return to Dravos just isn’t going to happen. I’m sure she’s dreamed of this for the last 8 years.

In the interest of transparency I want to see the commercial air itinerary. I want to know which airline. I want to see the reservation number, the flight number, the flight plan. I want to see who paid for the commercial flight and how they paid for it. An international flight leaves a big paper trail. They were ready to load their baggage and go. Their commercial flight would have been crewed, stocked, fueled, flight plan filed, ready to go. They would have been able to get off the AIR FORCE bus, onto the commercial airliner and taken off without letting anyone know about President Donald J. Trump’s letter until after the trip. The truth is there was no commercial flight scheduled. Any boot reporter could figure this out, but the msm doesn’t want to make nancy look like a liar.

Democrats know they can always lie with impunity, and the Democrat press will back them up. If they can’t think of a lie on their own, the press will do it for them.

Nancy P: You mean I won’t be receiving my usual pre-flight feel up…??????? DAMN THAT TRUMP….!!!!DAMN HIM…!!!!!!
