Nancy Pelosi Asks: What Does Putin Have on Trump?


On the same day as Trump ally Roger Stone was arrested in relation to the Mueller probe, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took to Twitter to question what Russian President Vladimir Putin had on Trump.

“What does Putin have on @realDonaldTrump, politically, personally or financially?” Pelosi asked in a statement tonight.

“Lying to Congress and witness tampering constitute grave crimes,” statement read. “All who commit these illegal acts should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. We cannot allow any effort to intimidate witnesses or prevent them from appearing before Congress.

The statement concluded: “The Special Counsel investigation is working, and 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.”

Early Friday, Stone was indicted of lying, obstruction and witness tampering in relation to the Mueller probe. After making bail, he appeared on Tucker Carlson and Chris Cuomo’s shows to talk about the early morning raid and proclaiming his innocence.
