Pelosi Responds To Trump Over Photo Of Her With Russian Ambassador: Wasn’t ‘Secret’ Meeting

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. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/837770149767827456 

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.”
