Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) floated a new theory during a recent interview with MSNBC host Jen Psaki, claiming that Russian President Vladimir Putin was probably holding “something financial” over former President Donald Trump.

The topic came up during an interview that aired Monday evening on the former White House Press Secretary’s show, and Pelosi was first to broach the subject.

“What does he have on Donald Trump that he has to constantly be catering to Putin? Telling Putin go into these countries, NATO countries,” Pelosi mused.


“What do you think? We’re all wondering this question, Speaker Pelosi, what do you think Putin has on him? I mean, it sure seems like something, as you’ve said a few times, given that he refuses to criticize him, that he seems to be a fanboy of him. Are you worried?” Psaki asked.

“First of all, we must be sure that he does not step one foot into the White House. Not as president or not as anything. He has brought disgrace to the White House, to these presidents,” Pelosi responded, getting sidetracked by thoughts of Presidents Day and the late President Abraham Lincoln.

“I talked about George Washington, it’s also Presidents Week for Abraham Lincoln,” Pelosi said, derailing momentarily to tell a story about Lincoln’s assassination and the words “one country, one destiny” that were embroidered in the coat he was wearing the night he died. That coat was initially made for his second inauguration. “He gave his life to unify our country.”


“Now we have someone who had the honor of serving in the White House, didn’t consider it an honor, didn’t consider his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution, and on this week speaking out the way he did about [Alexei] Navalny shows you that he is a person without values. He looks like he is going to be a person without dollars either, but the values are what concern us,” Pelosi said. “I don’t know what he has on him, but I think it’s probably financial, I think it’s probably financial — either something financial or something on the come — something that he expects to get.”
