Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) called out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a tweet, saying the Ukraine call at the center of a scandal involving President Trump “is starting to seem like a political set up.”
Cheney cited Pelosi’s interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday night, in which the Speaker said she had talked to Trump about the contents of his phone call with the Ukrainian president before it was released to the public.
“This is starting to seem like a political set up. So, Madame Speaker, ‘what did you know and when did you know it?” the tweet said.
