Despite US allies around the world seeking partnerships with Russia (most recently Japan’s Abe), it appears the Democrats simply cannot let go of the last meme standing between their loss in the election and a drastic reality check on the failure of identi5ty politics. Hours after Trump’s comments on Putin’s killing ways, Nancy Pelosi grandstanded on NBC’s ‘Meet The Press’ that “I want to know what the Russians have on Donald Trump.”
Following controversy over rehearsed questions and failed responses during her ‘townhall’ event this week – sponsored by CNN – it appears Nancy Pelosi was desperate to divert attention from Berkeley’s anti-free-speech riots back to The Left’s favored meme of the moment – Putin and Trump.
“I want to know what the Russians have on Donald Trump. 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 [with] Putin, whom he admires,” Pelosi said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Interestingly, the focus of Chuck Todd’s questioning was “how the Democrats have lost touch with the rust belt” which Elizabeth Warren suggests is true, but as the clip makes clear, Pelosi had only one talking point on her mind.
Pelosi made the same demand on Jan. 13 after a closed-door briefing by U.S. intelligence officials about Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
