Pelosi claims Trump is in denial while McConnell is acting as an ‘accomplice’ in Russian election interference

On a Sunday morning show, Pelosi questions Senator McConnell and Trump when it comes to upcoming elections.

Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, had a rare appearance on the Sunday morning show, This Week, with George Stephanopoulos. A radiant Pelosi was composed and well-spoken as ever, and wow, did she have a lot to say about President Trump, Senator McConnell, the Russians, and the strike on Iran’s General Soleimani.

During the interview, it became apparent that the Speaker does not trust Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or President Trump when it comes to America’s elections. She also repeated claims that “all roads lead to Putin” when it comes to Trump.

On Friday, Bloomberg reported that senior US officials are conducting an ongoing investigation to determine if the Russians are helping Trump secure the White House again in the upcoming 2020 presidential elections.

When asked if the US is doing enough to stop 2020 election interference, Pelosi responded:

“No, and the President of the United States is in complete denial about Russia’s role,” Pelosi says. “As I have said, in terms of this president, all roads lead to Putin.”

Disturbing questions about McConnell

After explaining instances to back up her claims, the Speaker indicated:

“Sometimes I wonder about Mitch McConnell too,” remarked Pelosi. “What’s he — why is he an accomplice to all of that? He has resisted sources going in a manner commensurate with the threat for state agencies, whichever they are in a state, could be the secretary of state or whatever, to protect our infrastructure, our critical infrastructure of elections.”

According to the Washington Examiner:

“Earlier in the interview, Pelosi claimed McConnell, 78, was participating in a “cover-up” after the Kentucky Republican signed onto a measure to dismiss Trump’s impeachment trial without witness presentations if Pelosi doesn’t send the two articles of abuse and obstruction to the Senate within 25 days.”

The statements reinforce what Pelosi said last week about McConnell, claiming the Republican from Kentucky was an “accomplice” who was “doubling down on his violation of his oath” to deliver impartial justice during the impeachment of President Trump.

Kyle Griffin, a senior producer at MSNBC, shared clips from the interview.

Deceiving Congress?

Stephanopoulos asked Pelosi is she believed the Trump administration has been “straight with the American people.”

Pelosi answered:

“I don’t think the administration has been straight with the Congress of the United States.”

Trump’s constant projection

Pelosi then addressed the torrent of insults that Trump has been sending her way as well as just about anybody else who dares criticize him. She notes that Trump is prone to constant projection and says he’s actually revealing how he feels about himself.

“So again, I don’t like to spend to much time on his crazy tweets because everything he says is a projection. When he calls somebody crazy, he knows that he is,” said Pelosi. “Everything he says, you can just translate it back to who he is.”

“But again, it’s Sunday morning, let’s be optimistic about the future, a future that will not have Donald Trump in the White House,” she continued.

Pelosi is Trump’s worst nightmare

In response to Pelosi’s statements, former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich tweeted:

“Everything Trump accuses others of doing or being is a self-projection of what Trump does or is.

Nancy Pelosi is his worst nightmare.”
