The fact that she went to the P before talking to you first is the red flag to me. It's fine to be worried about a colleague if you are in fact doing things that she's worried about. But that should've been brought up to you when it happened. You can't fix it if you didn't know about it.

I would very calmly meet with the P without her first. Tell her what you told us, about her cleaning house of what you've done (unless you think it was necessary). Explain that you didn't want to make waves so you let her take the reins and that now it makes you look like you weren't doing anything ("nonresponsive"). Tell the P that you're all for constructive criticism, but that you were never told anything about your performance by her until she went to the P.

If you meet with the P without her, it will give you a chance to tell your side of the story without interruptions or without feeling like you're being undermined at the meeting.

Be very professional about it. Just be matter-of-fact about the whole situation and apologize for any misunderstandings that were presented to her.
