After Video Refutes Kelly’s Charges, Congresswoman Raises Issue of Race.  (The New York Times, 10/20/2017)
Video of a 2015 speech delivered by Representative Frederica S. Wilson revealed Friday that John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff, misrepresented her remarks when he accused her of bragging about securing $20 million for a South Florida F.B.I. building and twisting President Barack Obama’s arm.

Here's the video of Rep. Wilson acknowledging her congressional colleagues, then House Speaker John Boehner, then the House speaker; Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart and Carlos Curbelo, and Sen. Marco Rubio.
