Video Shows Wilson Didn't Brag About Funding FBI Building, As Kelly Claimed

Posted October 24, 2017

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D- FL) first relayed what Trump said on that call, and the White House hit back, with even Gen. John Kelly publicly criticizing her yesterday.

Kelly then continued his criticism of Wilson, mentioning the 2015 dedication of the Miramar FBI building, saying she focused in her speech that she "got the money" for the building.

As CNN reported she took credit "for shepherding legislation naming the Federal Bureau of Investigation building after two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who were killed in a 1986 gunfight, she did not claim credit for helping to fund the building, according to the video".

"That's a racist term ― thinking about that, we looked it up in the dictionary because I had never heard of an empty barrel and I don't like to be dragged into something like that", Wilson said Friday.

Graham's comments are the latest in an ongoing feud between the White House and Wilson.

For casual gamers however, the new announcement is just a reaffirmation of Nintendo's commitment to the 3DS platform. From the cover to the buttons, this lovely portable is covered in the iconic purple and gray we all know and love.

She also called Kelly a "patriot".

Retired General Kelly is frustrated that "the focus has become on the process and not that American lives were lost", Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

CBS Miami reports the congresswoman took a bow for reaching out to President Obama to sign the bill officially renaming the building for the fallen agents. Please repeat it after me: Fidelity. She did not say whether that contact necessarily meant a phone call, or only a letter, and she did not not address the specifics of why families of some war dead have received neither. "And God bless America". Wilson did not brag about getting money for the building (because she wasn't in Congress when the funds were allocated), and she didn't make the event all about herself.

And 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.

Kelly accused Wilson of "selfish behavior". "Rep. Wilson truly did the impossible, and we are eternally grateful", Comey said.

Switch update steps closer to console parity
Frankly, it's a little weird Nintendo didn't choose to advertise this feature when the firmware update went live yesterday. Unfortunately, the video capture functionality is only set to now work on the latest version of four first-party games.

Facing increasing criticism at home and overseas, the United States president has now become a persona non grata of sorts, as representatives from all UK political factions join a rising chorus to prevent Trump's visit to the country.

Kelly, who has rarely discussed the 2010 death of his son in public, was taken by surprise when Trump hinted in an interview earlier in the week that President Barack Obama never called to offer Kelly condolences, according to two White House officials not authorized to discuss private conversations.

Despite Mr Trump's boast that he calls all or almost all military families when they lose a loved one, relatives of at least a half dozen people who died in military service since he became President have said they never got a call from him about their loss.

Sgt. La David Johnson was one of four American soldiers killed in Niger almost two weeks ago. "It didn't really play that well, I don't think". Wilson told the Miami Herald. You can say, 'I'm so sorry for your loss.

"The Fake News is going insane with wacky Congresswoman Wilson (D), who was SECRETLY on a very personal call, and gave a total lie on content!" he tweeted.

"Why do you think they [the White House] are continuing all of this?" "The family is very careful that they do not want to be pulled into a partisan slugfest", Boyle said.
