During a news conference Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed Sinclair reporter James Rosen for asking a question that she deemed to be playing into the Republican narrative.

Rosen simply asked Pelosi to explain “Why the legal rights of the whistleblower should prevail in this political setting over those of President Trump, who should ordinarily enjoy a right to confront his accuser?”

Pelosi replied, “I say to you, Mr. Republican talking points what I said to the President of the United States: when you talk about the whistleblower, you’re coming into my wheelhouse. I have more experience in intelligence than anybody in the congress, anybody that’s ever served.”

Further, Pelosi confirmed that she “will defend the rights of the whistleblower vehemently.”
