Nancy Pelosi: Russia is Likely Blackmailing Donald Trump

Nancy Pelosi seems to be falling prey to fake news. Most of the media might have given up on the Russian blackmail story perpetuated by BuzzFeed, but Pelosi still seems to think Russia is blackmailing Doanld Trump.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi urged the FBI to probe President Trump's finances and personal ties to find out if the Russian government is blackmailing him.

“I want to know what the Russians have on Donald Trump,” the California Democrat told Chuck Todd on NBC's “Meet the Press.” “I think we have to have an investigation by the FBI into his financial, personal and political connections to Russia, and we want to see his tax returns, so we can have truth in the relationship between Putin, whom he admires, and Donald Trump.”

Intelligence officials briefed Trump and outgoing President Barack Obama on claims that Russia has attempted to compromise him, and the FBI is investigating those allegations, CNN reported in January. The investigation of included intercepted communications, according to the New York Times.

Pelosi isn't the only one asking the FBI to investigate Trump. Earlier this week, Rep. Maxine Waters urged the FBI to investigate Trump's relationship with Russia, as well. Unlike Pelosi, Waters seems to believe that Trump and Russia aren't at odds, but are in collusion.

The Democrats can't seem to get their story straight — but it doesn't matter. They're just throwing every accusation at the wall to see what sticks.
