Fox News reports:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office accused the Trump administration on Friday of leaking plans for a congressional delegation to fly commercial to Afghanistan after they were denied military aircraft, saying the related security risks have forced them to postpone the trip — in the latest escalation of the bitter feud over the partial government shutdown.
A senior White House official told Fox News that the claim it leaked the commercial flight plans was “a flat out lie.”
“When the Speaker of the House and about 20 others from Capitol Hill decide to book their own commercial flights to Afghanistan, the world is going to find out. The idea we would leak anything that would put the safety and security of any American at risk is a flat out lie,” the official said.
