Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said the leak of Nancy Pelosi’s scheduled trip to Taiwan “came straight from the White House” slamming President Biden for pressuring the Speaker in hopes to call off her trip.
TOM COTTON: The word I’ve heard in Congress is that the leak of Nancy Pelosi’s trip came straight from the White House. The pressure came from Joe Biden, who doesn’t want her to take this trip because he’s once again kowtowing to Beijing.
