The White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is adamant on his decision- says he won't apologize to Rep. Frederica Wilson, even after he knows he got wrong details about what she said funding for an FBI field office.
In an interview with the Fox News' Laura Ingraham on Monday night, John told he doesn't feel guilty in the false attacks he leveled against Wilson on October 19. In the rare appearance at the White House press briefing, Kelly slammed Wilson as an ''empty barrel'' and accused her of grandstanding at a public event two years back.

Ingraham asked him about the day's news on the indictments of the president Trump's campaign; to which Kelly answered inaccurately as:
"All of the activities, as I understand it, that they were indicted for was long before they ever met Donald Trump or, or had an a s sociation with the campaign??
Ingraham asked Kelly whether he had something to apologize for and Kelly answered:
Oh, no. No, never. Well, I'll apologize if I need to. But for something like that, absolutely not. I stand by my comments.
After FNC parted ways with Eric Bolling, the network shifted Sean Hannity from 10 pm to 9 pm to take MSNBC's rating powerhouse Rachel Maddow which ultimately gave Ingraham the 10 PM timeslot.
