Nancy Pelosi and Hilary Clinton are now publicly accusing Putin of responsibility for the Storming of Capitol Hill:
Democratic bigwigs Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi have called for a probe into Russian President Vladimir Putin’s – real or entirely imagined – role in the Capitol riot, theorizing that he may have personally ordered the unrest.
The House speaker sat down with the failed 2016 presidential candidate for an interview on Clinton’s podcast, ‘You and Me Both,’ on Monday, where they discussed the bout of chaos in Washington, DC earlier this month. At one point during the conversation, Clinton argued that President Donald Trump “has other agendas” – though hastened to add that “I don’t think we yet know” what those are – wondering aloud about “who pulls his strings.”
“I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” Clinton said, asking Pelosi: “Do you think we need a 9/11-type commission to investigate and report everything they can pull together and explain what happened?”
Pelosi responded in the affirmative, saying that when it comes to Trump, “all roads lead to Putin.”
“I don’t know what Putin has on him politically, financially or personally, but what happened last week was a gift to Putin. Because Putin wants to undermine democracy in our country and throughout the world,” Pelosi added confidently, despite being fuzzy on the details. These people, unbeknownst to them, they are Putin puppets. They were doing Putin’s business when they [stormed the Capitol], at the incitement of an insurrection by the president of the United States. So yes, we should have a 9/11 commission, and there is strong support in the Congress to do that.”
I don’t know about you but I’m convinced. And it’s informative to observe that they’re more interested in talking about Putin’s nefarious shenanigans and President Trump’s mysterious agenda than about the new administration that is supposed to be inaugurated tomorrow.
