Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is as radical as they come. But her radicalism has consequences.
And Nancy Pelosi said three words about Donald Trump that she will forever regret she ever said.
After Special Counsel John Durham’s report revealed serious blunders by the DOJ and FBI in initiating the Trump-Russia probe, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has remained silent.
Fox News has reported that they have repeatedly reached out to the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi this past week for comment on her reaction to the report by Special Counsel Robert Durham, which concluded that “the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law” at the outset of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.
When asked if she would retract any of her statements suggesting that Trump cooperated with Russia and that the 2016 election was somehow fraudulent, Pelosi’s staff again failed to comment.
In response to reports that Donald Trump Jr. had met with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower in 2016, Pelosi stated, “This week we saw cold hard evidence of the Trump campaign, indeed the Trump family, eagerly intending to collude, possibly, with Russia, a hostile foreign power, to influence American elections.” The Mueller investigation ultimately decided not to file charges related to this meeting.
Former House Speaker Paul Ryan was urged by Pelosi to create a commission to “get to the bottom of the Trump campaign’s role in Russia’s assault on our democracy.”
Pelosi tweeted, “Our election was hijacked,” in May of that year. “There is no question,” she added.
Pelosi reiterated her support for the “all roads lead to Putin” collusion story when she referred to President Trump in June 2020.
“I don’t know what the Russians have on the president, politically, personally, or financially.”
According to Durham, the examination into the Trump collusion claims also indicated that “senior FBI personnel displayed a serious lack of analytical rigor towards the information that they received, especially information received from politically-affiliated persons and entities.”
“This information in part triggered and sustained Crossfire Hurricane and contributed to the subsequent need for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation,” the report states
As the article puts it, “In particular, there was significant reliance on investigative leads provided or funded directly or indirectly by Trump’s political opponents.”
At the same time that the Director of the FBI and others heard of significant and possibly conflicting intelligence, “the Department did not adequately examine or question these materials and the motivations of those providing them,” the report said.
Following the release of the Durham report, President Trump called for the resignation of former FBI Director James Comey, whom Pelosi had praised as a “great man” in July 2016, and for “heavy price” to be paid by Democrats peddling the narrative of Russian connection.
Democrats like Nancy Pelosi love to point the fingers at conservatives as insane “conspiracy theorists.”
But Nancy Pelosi quite literally said she didn’t trust that the outcome of the 2016 election was fair, yet she faced no consequences.
Any conservative who points to the real questions surrounding the 2020 election gets blasted as an “election denier” and a “democracy hater.”
Oh, how the tables have turned. Now every Democrat who was foolish to believe the Russian collusion hoax has to come to grips with the fact that they either intentionally peddled a lie or fell victim to the Democrat propaganda machine.
