Pelosi Slams House GOPers Over Afghanistan Visit

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday slammed the rouge trip by two House members to Afghanistan during the ongoing and dangerous military evacuation effort from Kabul.

Pelosi, D-Calif., said Reps. Peter Meijer, R-Mich., and Seth Moulton, D-Mass., wanted to “freelance on their own” when the pair of lawmakers this week traveled to Afghanistan without the approval of the leadership. She said the trip put them at risk and strained resources that should have gone to evacuating Americans and others.

“This is deadly serious,” Pelosi said at a Capitol news conference Wednesday. “You do not want members to go.”

Moulton and Meijer, both military veterans, defended their secret trip to Kabul as necessary oversight and not a way to grandstand.
