Nancy Pelosi has a difficult relationship with the truth.
That’s never been more apparent than during her hysteria over the fact-free allegations that Donald Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 election.
But Trey Gowdy was not about to let her falsehoods go unanswered.
Pelosi is launching two attacks against Trump.
She is demanding the FBI accelerate their probe into Trump and his team.
Pelosi released a letter demanding the FBI pick up the pace of their investigation into Trump and his associates with regards to their connections to Russia.
But an investigation has been ongoing for months and no evidence of wrongdoing has turned up.
NBC's Pete Williams reports (as we have all along) that investigators have found no collusion between Trump campaign and contacts in Russia.

Pelosi’s other demand was for a select committee to investigate Trump and his alleged Russia connections.
Trey Gowdy stepped in and refuted this bunk.
The House Intelligence Committee is already conducting their investigation.
He blasted the Democrats’ assertions in an interview.
Fox News reported:
“Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said on “America’s Newsroom” that the House Intelligence Committee has been investigating Russian meddling in the election “for months.”
House Democrats blasted Republicans yesterday, claiming they are not serious about looking into communications between President Trump’s advisers and Russian officials.
Gowdy disputed that assertion in an interview this morning with Bill Hemmer.
“The Democrats may be new to this investigation. But the Republicans in the House, as it relates to Russia and their attempts to interfere in our elections, we’re not new to it,” he said.
Gowdy said it’s not “serious” for Democrats to call for public hearings on classified information, adding that they’re more concerned with “politics … than actually finding out what happened.”
He said that “99 of our 100 interviews” on the matter were done in private. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Wednesday that the election interference is a “significant issue” and that Congress will investigate.
“We know they were messing around with it. We don’t think they had any impact on the outcome, but obviously, we’re not going to ignore something like that,” he said.”
Democrats are desperately seeking to make hay out of the Russia issue.
At first, it was used as an excuse for why Hillary lost.
Then it turned into a ‘Hail Mary’ play to swing Electoral College voters and steal the election.
Now, the left and their allies in the press are using the issue to derail Trump and his agenda by forcing Congress to devote all their time to chasing what looks like a dead-end scandal.
Fortunately, Trey Gowdy set them straight.
