After the Washington Post revealed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had undisclosed communication with top Russian officials, pressure piled on the White House. In response, President Donald Trump is going after the Democrats.

Trump on Twitter

Over the last 72 hours, the news cycle has been dominated with talks of Russia and their influence in the Donald Trump administration. The alleged relationship between the former host of "The Apprentice" and the Kremlin has been well-documented and started during the early days of the campaign. Since Election Day, Trump has been forced to push back on reports that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee in his favor, as well as his cabinet and advisors having communication with Kremlin officials.

Just hours after the president called for an investigation into Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Trump returned to Twitter on March 3 to do the same about House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

In yet another example of the billionaire real estate mogul being on the defensive, Donald Trump accused Rep. Nancy Pelosi of illegal communication with Russia, and also lying about her relationship. "I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it," Trump wrote on his Twitter account on Friday afternoon.

Attached to the tweet was an article published earlier in the day by Politico that shows Nancy Pelosi during a dinner meeting with then Russian President Dmitriy Medvedev, as well as Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak back in 2010. Pelosi had denied meeting with the individuals in question, but the Politico article highlighted the contradiction, which was then used by Donald Trump to push his own theory.

As of press time, Nancy Pelosi has not responded the allegations against her, however, Chuck Schumer was quick to fire back.

In Donald Trump's earlier attack on Twitter, he used a photo from 2003 showing the senator eating breakfast with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In response, Schumer laughed off the social media attack, and mocked the picture in question by citing that the donuts in the photo came from Krispy Kreme.
