While appearing on Friday’s edition of NBC’s Today Show, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., admitted that she has no evidence to show there was collusion between the Russians and the Trump team, but called for an investigation anyway.

“I just wonder what the Russians have politically, personally or financially on President Trump,” Pelosi said. “Because this is about a national security issue. Why would the president of the United States just come in and start to flirt with the idea of lifting sanctions on Russia in terms of their behavior in Eastern Europe? Why would the president of the United States question the START treaty? Why the question of the United States put Putin on a pedestal and diminish the greatness of America? There’s something wrong with this picture.”

Samantha Guthrie went on to ask if Pelosi had any proof to back up any of her claims.

“Nothing I would suggest here, but I would say this — let’s have the outside independent commission investigate all of this,” Pelosi added. “And I don’t know how many more days where new news connecting the Trump campaign to the Russians needs to come forward for the Republicans in Congress to say, ‘Let’s get to the truth.”

In other words, Pelosi has no facts, but is willing to push the conspiracy theory anyway, and is demanding an investigation.
