Americans may be ready to move on from the much-hyped chaos of the Trump administration, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is not about to let anyone forget about her anger at Trump.
During a recent episode of the You and Me Both podcast with former first lady Hillary Clinton, Pelosi made it clear that she will not allow the nation to “move on” from the January 6th Capitol riots, despite Joe Biden’s impending inauguration.
“I think everyone listening knows what happened on January 6, when the United States Capitol was attacked by a group of seditionist, insurrectionist traitors,” Clinton opened, asking Pelosi how she is “holding up” in the aftermath of the melee.
“I’m sad. I’m deeply sad, because here it is, the Capitol, this symbol of democracy to the world, being overrun by people who are being incited by a person who is not speaking truth,” Pelosi lamented. Pelosi did not address the months of chaos D.C. endured at the hands of Black Lives Matter protesters.
“Everybody said, ‘Well, we’ve got to move on.’ No, we can’t move on,” she protested. “We can’t move on. We will move on, but we have to take stock of what this is.”
Pelosi also doubled down on her promise to target House lawmakers that she believes may have had a role in early January’s events, bringing the entire narrative back to Russia — a theme which failed Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was all too ready to jump into.
“I would love to see [Trump’s] phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” Clinton mused.
“I don’t know what Putin has on him politically, financially, or personally, but what happened last week was a gift to Putin,” Pelosi said of the answered, adding that the rioters were “doing Putin’s business when they did that at the incitement of an insurrection by the president of the United States.”
