Kelly erroneously claimed Rep. took credit for building funding

"If I were [Rep.] Wilson, I'd be in hiding", Irwin Gellman, author of two critically-acclaimed volumes on Richard Nixon, told me. I just don't agree with it.

"I was stunned when I came to work yesterday morning, and brokenhearted at what I saw a member of Congress doing", Kelly said in the briefing room Thursday.

Now, Congresswoman Wilson says she wasn't in Congress early enough to secure the funding.

Several spoke of being comforted by Trump but at least one call went awry: Cowanda Jones-Johnson told the AP that Trump spoke disrespectfully of her fallen nephew, Sgt.

The saga has since devolved into a political circus, with parties from all corners defending Trump in increasingly outlandish ways. To drive home that criticism, Kelly drew on a speech he heard Wilson deliver at the FBI's dedication ceremony for a new Miami field office in 2015.

Ms. Wilson, in an interview on Friday, called Mr. Kelly a liar and hinted strongly that the altercation, prompted by a call from President Trump to the widow of a fallen black soldier, was racially charged.

During a video of the nine minute speech posted Friday by the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Wilson took credit for passing legislation to get the building named after slain Federal Bureau of Investigation agents Benjamin Grogan and Jerry Dove, killed during a 1986 shootout with bank robbers south of Miami.

"A congresswoman stood up, and in a long tradition of empty barrels making the most noise, stood up there in all of that and talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building, and how she took care of her constituents because she got the money, and she just called up President Obama, and on that phone call, he gave the money, the $20 million, to build the building, and she sat down". Stunned that she had done it.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "If you're able to make a sacred act like honoring American heroes about yourself, you're an empty barrel".

Muscat said he has asked the USA government and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for help investigating the auto bombing. Local media reports said Galizia had been receiving death threats, which she reported to police 15 days ago.

"That is insane that I got [the money] and Mr. Obama just gave it to me", Wilson told the paper.

@realDonaldTrump: "Democrat congressowman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof)". I hate to say that, because it did come from Washington and the president. "It's insane. Why do you need to say that?"

Moreover, Wilson does mention legislation she helped pass-but it was legislation that officially named the building after the two agents who were killed, and she specifically thanks Republicans John Boehner and Marco Rubio for helping push it through quickly.

Money for the building was approved in September 2010, before Wilson won her congressional election, according to the Herald.

The former Homeland Security chief also referenced a 2015 speech by Ms Wilson. The video from the Sun Sentinel appears to support Wilson's version of events. Neither did Trump after he took office that month.

She then asked all law enforcement personnel and first responders to stand up "so we can applaud you for what you do".

This followed a White House written statement that stood by Kelly's remarks, which we now know weren't true.

In heart-felt remarks, White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly expressed that he was stunned by Florida Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson's criticism of President Trump's condolence call to the widow of Sergeant La David Johnson, one of four American soldiers killed during an ambush of ISIS-affiliated militants in Niger.
