In response to the FAA delaying, halting, or re-routing flights at three of the nation's top airports Friday, due to air traffic controllers either too exhausted or having called-out sick, Speaker Pelosi blasted Trump for the shutdown.
Pelosi urged the President to "stop endangering the safety, security and well-being of our nation. Re-open government now!"
The #TrumpShutdown has already pushed hundreds of thousands of Americans to the breaking point. Now it's pushing our airspace to the breaking point too.
.@realDonaldTrump, stop endangering the safety, security and well-being of our nation. Re-open government now!

But that was just the beginning.
Asked by reporters in the halls of Congress about the bombshell news that longtime Trump advisor Roger Stone had been arrested by the FBI in a pre-dawn raid at his home, the Speaker said it is "very interesting to see the kinds of people the President of the United States has surrounded himself with."
"This connection to the integrity of our elections is obviously something we have to get the truth about." Pelosi added. "But it's also bothersome to see his connections to Russia and the President's suggestions, questions whether we should be in NATO – which is a dream come true for Vladimir Putin."
