Rep. Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, encouraged the FBI to look into the possibility that some demonstrators demanding a cease-fire in Gaza may be connected to Russia on Sunday.
During an interview with CNN’s State of the Union host Dana Bash, the former speaker of the House expressed her belief that some demonstrators have ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, but she did not provide any supporting proof.
“For them to reach out for a cease-fire is Mr. Putin’s message,” she stated. “This is directly related to what he would like to see, don’t get me wrong. Ukraine is in a similar situation. It concerns Putin’s statement. Some of these protestors, in my opinion, are genuine, organic, and spontaneous. I believe some have something to do with Russia.
