Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) took a shot at President Trump over the arrest of his longtime associate Roger Stone, saying it was “very interesting” to see the “kinds of people” Trump surrounds himself with.
“It’s very interesting to see the kinds of people the president of the United States surrounded himself with,” Pelosi told reporters. “This connection to the integrity of our elections is obviously something we have to get the truth about.
“But it’s also bothersome to see his connections to Russia and the president’s suggestions that we should question whether we should be in NATO, which is a dream come true for Vladimir Putin,” Pelosi added, referring to the Russian president.
Stone is the sixth associate of Trump’s to be charged in connection with Mueller’s expansive probe into Russia’s election interference and potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
