Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suggested during an episode of her podcast on Monday that President Trump had been on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Capitol riot on January 6.
"I hope, historically, we will find out who he is beholden to, who pulls his strings," Clinton said. "I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol.
"But we now know that not just him, but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members have the same disregard for democracy," she continued. "Do you think we need a 9/11-type Commission to investigate and report everything they can pull together to explain what happened?"
Clinton's guest, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelsoi, agreed with Clinton, adding that "there is strong support in Congress" for a 9/11-style commission.
"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 . "Because Putin wants to undermine democracy in our country and throughout the world, and these people, unbeknownst to them maybe, are Putin puppets. They were doing Putin‘s business when they did that at the incitement of an insurrection by the president of the United States."
