Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has had it with the leaks of Clinton campaign emails and she lashed out an online encyclopedia for it.
“You know that I’m going to first of all denounce the utilization of this intrusion by Wikipedia through the Russian intrusion,” she told MSNBC on Friday. “This is what it’s about. Espionage just like what was said over these last couple of days. We need to be concerned about the intrusion of Russia and Putin in these elections.”
Yes Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, not Wikileaks the organization led by Julian Assange that has actually been leaking the emails.

It ought to come as no surprise to anyone who has followed the career of the brilliant elocutionist from Texas.
But for those that haven’t, these are some gems through the years.
“Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working,” she said on the floor of the House in 2010. “We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace. I would look for a better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they are living side by side.”
In 1997, she confused the Moon and Mars while visiting the Mars Pathfinder operations center. Lee asked one of the scientists if they had been successful in photographing the flag planted on the red planet by Neil Armstrong.
“I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together. Are we going to be able to do it today to free America?” she said in 2013, though her former slave masters were not available for comment.
And in a gem from 2014 she claimed the Constitution was 400 years old, which would mean it was written in 1614, even before the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock.
“Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not.”
Perhaps that’s why social media was less than surprised at her newest gaffe.
