For months, Trump has had the world scratching its collective head wondering why he has been so subservient to Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin. From refusing to condemn Russian atrocities, to threatening the future of NATO, to picking pro-Russia cabinet appointees and advisers, to choosing to believe Putin’s word over the findings of US intelligence agencies, Trump’s treatment of Russia has frankly been baffling (though certain unconfirmed stories are circulating that would explain the behavior quite convincingly).
Now, Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi has had enough. On Meet the Press on Sunday, Pelosi called for a formal investigation. Reports Politico:
“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 between Putin, whom he admires, and Donald Trump.”
For the sake of our national security and that of our European allies, let’s hope Pelosi, congressional Democrats, and adult-minded Republicans pursue this investigation.
