She immediately started pushing some of her own.
CNN host Chris Cuomo called out House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for her party’s willingness to push conspiracies about connections between President Trump and Russia on Tuesday. Pelosi, instead of denouncing the outlandish theories, started pushing some of her own.
“The collusion argument, which a lot of Democrats state as a fact… There is no collusion case. We haven’t seen any proof,” he said.
Pelosi said that she told her party members, “The only thing that matters are the facts – the facts and the law.”
“I think it’s important for the American people to know what do the Russians have on Donald Trump, politically, financially, or personally,” Pelosi then said, pushing the theory that the Kremlin has been blackmailing the president.
“Why do [the Russians] have to have something on him?” Cuomo asked. “Why couldn’t your own theory serve as a rationale which is – [Trump] doesn’t like it. It’s bad for him.”
“You guys keep talking about Russia. It’s a negative for [Trump]. It jades his victory so he doesn’t want [the investigation] to go on,” he added.
“The American people have a right to know the truth,” Pelosi responded.
