Fox's Jeanine Pirro Admits Falsely Reporting That Nancy Pelosi Spent Shutdown Weekend In Puerto Rico

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Sunday admitted that she had been wrong to report that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had spent a weekend in Puerto Rico during a ongoing government shutdown.

During a Saturday interview in which Pirro asked Donald Trump if he was a Russian agent, a Fox News host also suggested that Pelosi was shirking her congressional duties by traveling to Puerto Rico.

By Sunday, Pirro was walking back her story on Twitter.

“During my exclusive interview with Pres Trump I said Speaker Pelosi was in Puerto Rico with a bunch of her Democrat [sic] colleagues,” she wrote. “I based that on numerous reports that turned out to be wrong. a Speaker’s office says she has been in DC all weekend & I take am at air word.”
