Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to back-down from her initial claim that the Secret Service would be unable to adequately provide security for the State of the Union this week; claiming a “furloughed DHS employee” expressed “serious concerns” over safety.

“Pelosi spox: The Office of the Spkr has been contacted by a furloughed DHS employee who expressed serious concerns that the dept has insufficient staffing levels to sufficiently manage the security needs for the upcoming State of the Union..due to furloughs of critical staff,” posted a reporter for Fox News on social media.

The Department of Homeland Security flat-out denied Pelosi’s claims Thursday; saying they were “fully prepared” to ensure the safety of the President’s State of the Union address.

First of all why would they tell her before telling the President ?! Secondly why is she worried about security? I thought she’s a open border gal. b/c it’s her security she’s worried about, oh gotcha hypocrite
