During her weekly press conference, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi called out Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon.

She didn't name him by name, per AP, but her description only matches Bannon:

Trump has been under fire recently for making Bannon a regular member of the NSC's Principals committee, which gives him full access to all council meetings.
