Four years ago, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton helped launch the Russian collusion conspiracy theory that took up the news cycles for three whole years.
Now, the disgruntled former politician is promoting a new conspiracy theory about President Donald Trump, stating she would “love” to see the President’s phone records to see “whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol.”
The comments from Clinton came during her podcast You and Me Both on Monday with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi while they were discussing the events that unfolded on January 6th.
“We learned a lot about our system of government over the last four years with a president who disdains democracy and, as you have said numerous times, has other agendas,” Clinton said.
“What they all are, I don’t think we yet know. I hope historically we will find out who he’s beholden to, who pulls his strings. I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” Clinton added as she put the blame on President Trump’s “enablers,” “accomplices,” and “cult members.”
“Do you think we need a 9/11-type commission to investigate and report everything that they can pull together and explain what happened?” Clinton asked Pelosi, who replied, “I do.”
.@SpeakerPelosi and I agree:
Congress needs to establish an investigative body like the 9/11 Commission to determine Trump's ties to Putin so we can repair the damage to our national security and prevent a puppet from occupying the presidency ever again. pic.twitter.com/yR7LQmXm5Z

“To your point of who is he beholden to, as I’ve said over and over, as I said to him in that picture with my blue suit as I was leaving, what I was saying to him as I was pointing, rudely, at him: ‘With you, Mr. President, all roads lead to Putin,’” Pelosi said to Clinton as she was referring to the January 6 events as a “gift to Putin” saying he “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,” she added.
Despite Clinton’s persistence, Robert Mueller proved that there was absolutely no collusion that took place between then-candidate Trump and the Russian government in the 2016 election.
“After two years, two congressional investigations, and now the closure of a Special Counsel investigation, it is abundantly clear, without a shadow of a doubt, there was no collusion,” Kevin McCarthy said back in 2019. “This case is closed.”
He continued: “Democrat leaders acted irresponsibly and threw caution to the wind to damage and distract from the work the Trump administration is doing on behalf of our fellow citizens. After months upon months of manufactured outrage, it is time we move on for the good of the nation.”
