House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has responded to President Trump‘s tweet taking a shot at her for a photo of her with the Russian ambassador at the center of the Jeff Sessions controversy.

Because Sessions did not disclose his meetings during his confirmation hearing, Pelosi and a whole host of other Democrats have called this week for the attorney general’s resignation. Trump today has accused both Pelosi and Chuck Schumer of hypocrisy:

Then he further responded with this:

Photo published for Photo contradicts Pelosi's statement about not meeting Kislyak

This is how Pelosi has responded:

.@realDonaldTrump doesn’t know difference between official mtg photographed by press & closed secret mtg his AG lied about under oath. 

For the record, Pelosi had initially said earlier today that she had not met with the ambassador, but after Politico uncovered the photo, a spokesman said this:

Asked to square Pelosi’s comments with the photo of the meeting, a spokesman said Pelosi simply meant she never had a solo meeting with Kislyak.

“Of course, that’s what she meant,” said the spokesman, Drew Hammill. “She has never had a private one-on-one with him.”
