CNN Host Grills Pentagon Spox: Why Are You Not Talking to GOP Lawmakers

Friday on CNN, “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer,” guest host Brianna Keilar confronted Pentagon spokesman Navy Rear Admiral John Kirby about not consulting with Republican lawmakers before President Barack Obama’s announcement today that 1,500 additional U.S. troops are going into Iraq.

When Kirby said they do work closely with Congress, Keilar pushed back saying she was personally told they were never spoken to and she added, “You have some Republicans that are on the president’s corner on this. I can speak to how they were informed. They’re saying they weren’t. so why not?”
