House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has just accidentally revealed classified information saying that she, along with the House Intelligence Committee, have made previous visits inside of Pyongyang, North Korea on live television.
The grave mistake from Pelosi occurred as if she hadn't realized the monumental truth she had just unveiled, continuing to speak about it, mentioning that she along with other members of the committee commenced discussing the buying and selling of missile technology with the leadership of North Korea.

At the beginning, there is someone whistling. I wonder if she missed the danger cue.

Did the US have a policy of not talking with North Korean leadership at any stage?
If she isnt talking BS then why is this the first anyones heard of it?
If it wasnt classified Im sure there will be some journalistic record of the visit due American officials very rarely (if ever) going to NK for diplomatic purposes.
If theres no record then shes lying or it was kept from the public i.e classified or even worse and just under the table and off the record.
Her body language, the way she changes tack, fumbles her words and looks nervously towards whoever whistled her were very telling, she done fooked up and she knew it
North Korea Once Offered to Sell Nancy Pelosi Ballistic Missiles July 15, 2017/
Concerns about North Korean missile threats have spiked in the U.S. after the communist nation successfully carried out its first test-firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile that is now capable of striking Alaska and could be further developed to reach the U.S. mainland.
Pelosi said her concerns about the North’s proliferation deepened after a trip to the North many years ago.
“When we went to Pyongyang, and we talked about missiles, we talked about MIAs and POWs, we talked about home, we talked about a number of subjects. But about the missiles, because the development of missiles was a national security issue of concern,” Pelosi said.
“They said, ‘Look, we just make these to sell. You want to buy them? We’ll sell them to you,'” she said.

Pelosi Remarks at Congressional Ceremony Commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War
“And in Pyongyang, which we revisited, the capital of North Korea, there was a poverty of spirit. There was a dullness. There was a propaganda machine at work. And part of was that in our hotel room, Chairman Skelton, what we saw there were films, video, what did we call them then? Newsreels when we were kids. Newsreels of American soldiers in North Korea. And that’s what they showed the North Korean people over and over again: Americans in North Korea. And that was their excuse for not having enough food for the people because the Americans could be coming any time, so we had to keep the food for the military. And their people were starving. People were starving. Leader McConnell referenced the difference between freedom and communism, and it is very clear there, as clear as that overhead picture.
