Sen. Lee slams Pelosi for labeling Bannon a 'white supremacist' (CNN)
Republican Sen. Mike Lee on Thursday criticized House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for repeatedly calling President Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, a "white supremacist."
"I think this is nonsense," said Lee, speaking on CNN's "Wolf." "I think this is defamatory. I think she's acting with reckless disregard for the truth. I wish people would stop throwing out arguments like that."
Lee, the junior senator from Utah, was responding to Pelosi, who earlier in the day said she was stunned by the appointment of Bannon to the National Security Council and twice called him a white supremacist.
