힐러리 클린턴, the former secretary of state, spoke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on her podcast about the riot at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month and hinted that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have been receiving updates about the chaos from President Trump.
클린턴, who hosts the podcast, “너와 나 둘 다,” told Pelosi that she would be interested in obtaining President Trump’s phone records to see if he was on the phone with Putin while the Capitol was being breached.
Clinton lost to Trump in 2016 and said it is clear that Trump has a disdain for democracy, but its true depths may never be known. She said the president had “다른 의제” while in the White House and hopes that one day it becomes known who exactly the president was “beholden to” 과 “who pulls his strings.”
“I would love to see his phone records to see if he was talking to Putin the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” 그녀가 말했다. She asked Pelosi if she believed the country would benefit from a 9/11-commission-type probe to investigate what exactly led up to the deadly riot.
Pelosi said she is in favor of such a commission and she recalled telling the president that, “With you, 씨. 대통령, all roads lead to Putin.”
“푸틴이 그에게 정치적으로 어떤 영향을 미치는지 모르겠습니다., financially or personally, 하지만 지난주에 일어난 일은 푸틴에게 선물이었습니다. 푸틴은 우리 나라와 전 세계의 민주주의를 약화시키고 싶어했기 때문입니다.,” Pelosi는 말했다. She said those that took part in the riot were “Putin’s puppets.”
“So yes, we should have a 9/11 commission and there is strong support in the Congress to do that,” 그녀가 말했다.
Representatives from Pelosi and Clinton did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News.
The suggestion from a former top diplomat that a sitting president could have somehow interacted with a foreign leader during such a trying time in the country’s history is remarkable and perhaps is an example of how divided the parties are in Washington. Trump supporters often tie President-elect Joe Biden to China.
Clinton called the breach an “invasion” while Congress was “doing the work of Democracy” and certifying an election. 이번달 초, she offered her support for impeaching 지우다 a second time, but claimed that the root problem that led to the riot at the Capitol last week – white supremacy – will still remain.
“Removing Trump from office is essential, and I believe he should be impeached,” 클린턴은 썼다. “Members of Congress who joined him in subverting our democracy should resign, and those who conspired with the domestic terrorists should be expelled immediately. But that alone won’t remove white supremacy and extremism from America.”
