Hillary Clinton makes wild claim Trump gave Putin updates during Capitol siege as Russian strongman ‘pulled his strings’

HILLARY Clinton has made the sensational claim that Donald Trump gave updates to Vladimir Putin during the siege of the Capitol.  

The former secretary of state hinted the Russian strongman had been “pulling” Trump’s strings during his presidency – but provided no evidence for the wild allegations.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi joined Clinton on her podcast ‘You and Me Both’ to discuss Trump’s presidency and the future of US politics.

Clinton, still apparently bitter from her loss to Trump in the 2016 election, claimed the President had “other agendas” in the White House.

She said: “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.

“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 if he was talking to Putin the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol."

Despite Hillary's unfounded claims, President Trump was cleared of colluding with the Russian government following an extensive investigation by former special counsel Robert Mueller in 2019.

The Mueller report concluded that there was not sufficient evidence that Trump "coordinated or conspired with the Russian government in its election-interference activities", and "does not conclude that the President committed a crime".


Conservative commentator Byron York yesterday slammed Clinton for peddling false claims about Russian collusion.

Retweeting the podcast clip, he wrote: "There was a House investigation. A Senate investigation. A special prosecutor investigation with the full powers of law enforcement.

"Obsessive media inquiries. None found what Hillary Clinton wanted to find. So she wants another…"

Hillary Clinton had previously made wild claims that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to launch cyber attacks which she says derailed her calamitous election campaign.

Clinton later asked Pelosi on the podcast whether she thought the country would benefit from a 9/11-type commission into what caused the siege of the Capitol on January 6.

Pelosi responded that she would support such a commission, adding that she once told Trump: “With you, Mr. President, all roads lead to Putin."

She said: “I don’t know what Putin has on him politically, financially or personally, but what happened last week was a gift to Putin because Putin wants to undermine democracy in our country and throughout the world.

“So yes, we should have a 9/11 commission and there is strong support in the Congress to do that”. 

Pelosi added that those who took part in the riot were "Putin’s puppets”. 

It comes as Clinton last week offered her support for impeaching President Trump for the second time.   

In an op-ed for The Washington Post, she wrote: “Removing Trump from office is essential, and I believe he should be impeached.

“Members of Congress who joined him in subverting our democracy should resign, and those who conspired with the domestic terrorists should be expelled immediately.”
