CBC Women Demand Apology from Kelly

On Sunday, the women of the CBC demanded that WH CoS John Kelly apologize toCongresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL) for lying about the Congresswoman's speech at the dedication of the new FBI building mentioned above. “We were appalled by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s statements where he called Congresswoman Wilson an ‘empty barrel’ ... General Kelly’s comments are reprehensible. Congresswoman Wilson’s integrity and credibility should not be challenged or undermined by such blatant lies. We, the women of the Congressional Black Caucus, proudly stand with Congresswoman Wilson and demand that General Kelly apologize to her without delay and take responsibility for his reckless and false statements,” they said. See the full statement here.
