( – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said on MSNBC on Monday that President “goal” is “to welcome” letting Russian President decide who will be America’s president.

“One thing I’ll say to the American people, do not pay attention to ,” Pelosi said.

“It’s his goal to scare people from voting, to intimidate them by saying he’s going to have law enforcement people at the polls, to welcome, in fact, Russian intervention into our election, letting Putin decide who will be president instead of the American people,” said Pelosi.

“But ignore him,” she said. “His purpose is to diminish the vote. And shame on the Republicans for enabling that to happen. But we don’t agonize, we organize. And people are right to be concerned because the president of the United States is saying what he’s saying.

“But don’t pay any attention to him,” she said. “Because that’s just a victory for those who want a lower turnout so that fewer people are engaged in the decision. 

“And again, what happened in 2016 was discouraging, the Russians were there and they’re there now, 24/7, trying to interfere in our election,” Pelosi said.
