House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign this week after it was reported that he had contact with the Russian Ambassador twice before Donald Trump won the election. Now, the president is firing back at Pelosi.
Daily Mail reported that Trump is calling for an investigation into Pelosi over her own ties with Russia. He reportedly called for an investigation into Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer as well after a photo surfaced of Schumer and Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2003.
“I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

This came hours after Pelosi was asked if she had ever met the current Russian ambassador, Sergey Kisliak.
“Not with this Russian ambassador, no,” Pelosi responded. A photo immediately surfaced of Pelosi at a table with Kisliak. Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill, said she had meant she had never met with the Russian ambassador alone.
“Of course, that’s what she meant,” said Hammill. “She has never had a private one-on-one with him.”
