In a recent appearance on MSNBC, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi engaged in a discussion with ex-White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, where they critically examined former President Donald Trump's relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Pelosi suggested that Putin might have some form of financial leverage over Trump, a claim that has not been substantiated.

Pelosi's assertion that Putin is "probably the richest person in the world" appears to be based on a Forbes article from January 2022. The article, however, does not provide concrete evidence of Putin's wealth, merely citing a financier's belief. Pelosi further questioned Trump's motives, asking, "What does he have on Donald Trump that he'd have to constantly be catering to Putin? Telling Putin to go into these countries…NATO countries."

The former Speaker then praised the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) for its effectiveness in deterring Russian aggression, stating, "NATO is there to keep Russia out." She celebrated the alliance's 75-year history of success. Established in 1949 as a collective security agreement against the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), NATO has grown from 12 to 31 members. Fifteen of these members joined after the dissolution of the USSR, several of which share a border with Russia.

During the interview, Pelosi appeared to momentarily forget Trump's name, stating, "And then we have what's-his-name…I usually have him nameless…saying, um, he doesn't support NATO, and uh, invit- encouraging Russia to invade NATO countries…" Psaki interjected with a reference to the Harry Potter series, saying, "he who shall not be named…I know Voldemort well, so there's another guy kind of like him."

Pelosi later echoed Psaki's insinuation, stating, "I don't know what he has on him, but I think it's probably financial…either something financial on him or something on the come." Following Trump's campaign speech that Pelosi referenced, Germany agreed to meet their 2% contribution to NATO.

In related news, Congress is preparing to propose another bipartisan foreign aid spending bill, allocating $47.69 billion to Ukraine. This is in addition to the over $75 billion the U.S. has already sent to Ukraine in cash and equipment.

Despite the Mueller report debunking the Russia-collusion allegations, an impeachment inquiry is still ongoing in Congress. The inquiry is investigating former Vice President Joe Biden's potential involvement in his son's business dealings in Ukraine.
