House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defended Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) over the weekend for meddling in Israeli elections last week, claiming without evidence that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tried to interfere in U.S. elections.

Pelosi made the remarks during a Sunday interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” while discussing Netanyahu’s response to Schumer’s attempt to alter the outcome of elections in Israel.

“It’s curious to me to see Netanyahu talk the way he does, when he tried to interfere in American elections,” Pelosi claimed. “But that’s another subject, when he came to the Congress, criticized the president of the United States, barged into our country, into our elections.}

“But, again, let’s put that aside and let’s just say, as we go forward, what is wrong with advocating for elections in a democracy? And you know. You mentioned the polls. You see the thousands and thousands of people are in the streets, even last night, in Israel,” she continued. “But, again, it’s a democracy, and people have different views, and they express them, and that’s a beautiful thing. But for him to say — what does that say if he won’t even say that, as the war winds down, the people of Israel should speak? That’s all Chuck was saying.”
