‘Not everything is about Russia’: Progressive critics slam Pelosi for clinging to Putin theories

Donald Trump has long contended that his 2020 election loss was due to fraud and widespread irregularities.

Although House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) frequently criticized the former president’s contentions, she nevertheless continues to cling to the assertion that Trump’s 2016 victory was tainted by Russian interference — and even some on the left are urging her to finally move on.

“Who pulls his strings”

Pelosi’s most recent public remarks on the 2016 race came during her appearance on Monday’s installment of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s podcast You and Me Both.

“I hope, historically, we will find out who he’s beholden to, who pulls his strings,” Clinton said to her guest in reference to the then-president.

The former secretary of state went on to tell Pelosi that she “would love to see his phone records to see if he was talking to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin on the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” referring to the Jan. 6 riot in D.C.

The House speaker dutifully agreed with Clinton’s support for a 9/11-style commission, proclaiming that “all roads lead to Putin.”

For her part, Pelosi has long accused Russia of playing a role in tilting the 2016 race in Trump’s favor. In 2017, she tweeted that there was “no question” that the “election was hijacked” by the Putin regime.

“Let’s do it again!”

She expounded on that argument in her conversation with Clinton, asserting that the Capitol attack “was a gift to Putin because Putin wants to undermine democracy in our country and throughout the world.”

Despite the continued assertions of Clinton, Pelosi, and others in their party, a nearly two-year-long investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller identified no proof of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. At least a few prominent voices on the left spoke out in opposition to the well-worn progressive narrative.

Left-leaning YouTube broadcaster tweeted: “What if I told you not everything is about Russia.”

Journalist Glenn Greenwald shared a similar take in a tweet of his own.

“Remember when Mueller spent 18 months and millions of dollars armed with a team of prosecutors and subpoena power, then closed his investigation after arresting *zero* Americans for conspiring with Russia?” he wrote. “Let’s do it again! Anything to distract from how rotted neoliberalism is.”

  4. Pelosi is an appointed unqualified member of congress who was not elected.
    She was appointed by a democrat. She is an old senile person who does nothing but stay on a power trip stirring up trouble for those who do not agree with her. She is immediately accused President Trump for the riot without any investigation. First thing out of her lying mouth was “impeach Trump”. It is obvious she needs to be impeached for doing nothing but attempt to destroy Trump the past four years.

  6. Just think about it, Pelosi was re-elected, the only way she could have done it is to have a folder full of information on the swamp democrats. If you do not vote for me I will release the info. Same with the 35 year swamp creature McConnell POS. Hope they go to HELL soon
