Nancy Pelosi is a well known, high profile Democrat who never ceases to put her foot in her mouth. She is the one who infamously exclaimed we had to pass the Affordable Care Act in order to see what is in it. Ever since then everyone has taken her less and less seriously. She took to social media, much like the President, to discuss issues of political philosophy and policy. This time she attacked National Security Adviser Ret. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
She went on to explain that he needed to be suspended prior to finding out any secret connections he may have with Russia. Look at her outburst here,
General Flynn should be suspended and have his intelligence clearance revoked. https://t.co/gflLx8W7DG

The link is to her Saturday statements where she called for an investigation into the President and his associates ties with Russia. Something Democrats have been calling for ever since Donald Trump won. She insists that any such connections weaken American security for our citizens and empowers Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In the statement was released after she said,
“it was reported that U.S. investigators [had]corroborated some of the communications detailed in the 35-page dossier describing Russia’s grip on President Trump.”
Pelosi specifically said,
“The President and his National Security Advisor have given the Russians the impression that whatever they do, they are not to worry, because the Trump White House will not stand against their aggression. General Flynn should be suspended and have his intelligence clearance revoked until the facts are known about his secret contacts with the Russians.”
Allegedly Flynn lied about discussions he had previously had with a Russian ambassador prior to Trumps assumption into office. But federal laws make it illegal for private citizens to conduct foreign business with overseas countries. Pelosi is now one of numerous Democrats calling for the investigation.
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) also supports the idea, The hypocrisy is baffling. Democrats are so keen on an investigation yet they were keen not to have one when Clinton was being accused of illegally using a private email server. That is a mighty big double standard they are playing with. It is almost as if they think they are above the laws that everyone else has to play by.
