[Ed. – Typical Pelosi.]
Representative Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) drew a connection between President Trump’s Wednesday announcement of an immediate U.S. troop withdrawal from Syria to the Tuesday sentencing hearing of his former national-security adviser, Michael Flynn.
“It is premature for the President to declare a sweeping victory against ISIS when, just a few weeks ago, our military led more than 250 coalition-conducted airstrikes against targets in Iraq and Syria,” Pelosi said in a statement. “All Americans should be concerned that this hasty announcement was made on the day after sentencing in criminal proceedings began against the President’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who admitted that he was a registered foreign agent for a country with clear interests in the Syrian conflict.”
While Flynn was not charged with failing to register as a foreign agent, he admitted during his sentencing hearing Tuesday that he did in fact act as unregistered foreign agent on behalf of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan during his time serving as an adviser to the Trump campaign.
