Top lawmakers were seen going into a sensitive compartmented information facility, or SCIF, with CIA Director William Burns at the Capitol on Tuesday.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) were part of the group, according to a tweet from Punchbowl News reporters.
Two meetings were taking place Tuesday as a fire alarm went off, prompting a brief Capitol Visitor Center evacuation and U.S. Capitol Police investigation. They were an Intelligence Committee meeting and a “Gang of Eight” meeting with Burns, per an Axios reporter.
I’m told there were two separate meetings when the fire alarm went off:
– Intelligence Committee meeting
– Gang of 8 meeting w/ CIA director Burns https://t.co/PrbhH8Dgso

The Gang of Eight is a bipartisan, bicameral group of lawmakers who receive briefings on intelligence matters. This group includes the top member of each party of the intelligence panel in both the Senate and the House. Pelosi and McCarthy, as leaders of the House, and the Senate majority leader and minority leader are also part of it.
A SCIF is a secure location where sensitive information can be viewed. What was discussed is unclear.
“We have a lot of briefings,” Pelosi adds.
“There's a lot going on in the world and I haven't been briefed on that. I just see what’s in the public domain.”

The sighting comes as lawmakers have demanded information about whether documents deemed classified found at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort posed a national security threat to the United States. However, Pelosi reportedly said she has not been briefed on the FBI raid of Trump’s home in Florida last month.
Knowing how PEVERTED they’re all are in DC, I wouldn’t be surprised they’re all down there to watch LEWD footage the CIA got from prince Williams’ children!
ha ha ha ha ha, they said Intelligence Committee….
Maybe the CIA has learned that the Chinese are mad about Pelosi and other politicians visiting Taiwan and have decided to take Taiwan and cut off shipping of vital merchandise to the US.. This could cripple the US economy. If the US stays clear of the invasion they will continue vital trade with the US.. If North Korea moves on South Korea at the same time the Asian region would be near a WWIII situation. Just my thoughts..
I don’t believe Pelosi hasn’t been briefed – she HAS but can’t use any of it for DIRT so she’s claiming stupid…which she IS!!!
