Everyday evidence emerges of Nancy Pelosi’s diminishing mental state. She is now blaming the GOP for Russia’s annexation of Crimea.
There is only one problem, when this happened, President Obama was the commander-in-chief.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Wednesday blamed Russia’s annexation of Crimea on Republicans, though the invasion took place on President Barack Obama’s watch.
Pelosi slammed President Donald Trump and Republicans for their alleged inability to face Russian aggression—and tied them to President Barack Obama’s appeasement of Moscow.
“You just described, not only for the president, but the Republicans in Congress, dereliction of duty,” Pelosi told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace. “Undermining our own elections, undermining our commitment to NATO, giving away the store, the base, in Syria. The list goes on and on. Ignoring the annexation of Crimea, the invasion of eastern Ukraine. The list goes on and on.”
In 2014, the Obama administration took heat from Republicans for its failure to provide defense assistance to Ukraine when Russian president Vladimir Putin led a campaign to annex the Crimean peninsula. The Trump administration changed course on this policy, selling arms to Ukraine for its defense against Russia.
Pelosi’s statements come after reports surfaced that Russia was paying bounties for U.S. soldiers and President Trump not only knew about it but did nothing.
The problem becomes the fact that President Trump was never briefed because the intelligence was never confirmed.
