(HorizonPost.com) – Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accidentally referred to Hillary Clinton as “president” during an event at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, according to The New York Post. The 83-year-old Democratic veteran corrected herself by placing a hand on her chest and saying that she “hopes,” suggesting that she hopes the former secretary of state makes a third run at the White House.
Clinton began by saying that democracy all around the world is in jeopardy and blamed it on a “concerted effort.” Pelosi largely agreed, saying that one of the biggest threats to democracy is Russia. She reiterated the debunked claims that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to put Donald Trump in office because Clinton was more feared.
A study published at the beginning of the year showed that although Russians interfered in the election by launching social media campaigns, the effect was negligible.
“We find no evidence of a meaningful relationship between exposure to the Russian foreign influence campaign and changes in attitudes, polarization, or voting behavior,” the study reads.
Democrats have also claimed that Trump colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election, but that has also been discredited. The Steele Dossier has become an infamous document put together by British counterintelligence specialist Christopher Steele. But the 35-page document was mostly conceived of falsified information.
The same division that reportedly led the raid on Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago conducted “Crossfire Hurricane.” Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten allegedly vetted the dossier. But despite the information being false, Auten was then involved in the probe against Hunter Biden’s laptop.
After a hearing with the Senate Judiciary Committee, it was soon learned that Auten tried to label derogatory evidence against Hunter Biden as “disinformation” during Biden’s 2020 campaign. Sen. Chuck Grassley expressed his concern that investigations into Trump might be compromised.
