Nancy Pelosi Won’t Answer Questions About Bipartisan Doubts Over Trump’s Connections to Russia

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused to acknowledge increasing doubt among bipartisan commentators regarding connections between President Trump and Russia at a press briefing on Thursday.

A reporter asked Pelosi about Clinton supporter and former acting CIA Director Mike Morrell’s recent comments on the Trump/Russia connection. Morrell said: “There is smoke, but there is no fire at all.”

“I didn’t see what he said, and I don’t understand what you’re,” Pelosi said, before trailing off. “Perhaps you have an accurate characterization. But I will say this: we need an investigation.”

Other intelligence officials, like former DNI James Clapper, have also denied the existence of evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials as well, according to NBC News.
