Nancy Pelosi On Stone Indictment: 'What Does Putin Have on The President?'
Democrat House Speaker wastes no time in resurrecting the Russia narrative
Following the indictment of Trump ally Roger Stone House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wasted no time in using it to resurrect the 'Russian collusion' narrative.
Pelosi, who recently blocked the President from giving his State of the Union address, said Stone's arrest shows a “deliberate, coordinated attempt” by the Trump campaign to undermine the 2016 election, causing Hillary Clinton to lose.
The progressive Democrat also questioned what President Vladimir Putin had on President Trump.
“The indictment of Roger Stone makes clear that there was a deliberate, coordinated attempt by top Trump campaign officials to influence the 2016 election and subvert the will of the American people,” Pelosi said in a statement following the end of the government shutdown on Friday.
“In the face of 37 indictments, the President’s continued actions to undermine the Special Counsel investigation raise the questions: what does Putin have on the President, politically, personally or financially?”
Pelosi also suggested that Trump's idea of pulling the US out of NATO goes hand in hand with Putin's policies.
“The House will continue to exercise our constitutional oversight responsibility and ensure that the Special Counsel investigation can continue free from interference from the White House,” the statement read.
The statement from Pelosi was released on the day that Stone became indicted by Mueller.
RUSSIA, RUSSIA. RUSSIA
The Democrats 'Russia' narrative is probably the biggest nothing burger in political history, and although they still don't have a single shred of evidence, more than $25 million of taxpayers money has still been plowed into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“If Roger Stone was indicted for lying to Congress, what about the lying done by [James] Comey, [John] Brennan, [James] Clapper, Lisa Page [and] lover, [James] Baker and soooo many others?"
"What about Hillary [Clinton] to FBI and her 33,000 deleted Emails? What about Lisa [and Peter Strzok’s] deleted texts [and Anthony Weiner’s] laptop? Much more!” Trump wrote Saturday.
The FBI concluded that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in using a private email server, language that rebuked the former secretary of state but did not carry legal weight.
Ex-FBI Director Comey, also mentioned in Trump’s Saturday tweet, had considered Clinton’s handling classified information on her private email account to be “grossly negligent” according to a 2016 memo draft, but the language was later softened.
According to the Guardian Roger Stone is due back in court on Tuesday, this time in Washington DC, where he will answer the charges first made against him as part of the in the Trump-Russia investigation.
But if you think the Russia media narrative is going to stop any time soon, take this quote from former FBI director James Comey, who said that in order to derail the investigation...
“you’d almost have to fire everyone in the FBI and the Justice Department to derail the relevant investigations.”
Maybe the deep state foes a lot deeper than we thought.
