(CNSNews.com) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview on MSNBC on Monday that Russia has been “trying to manipulate this election” and that President Donald Trump “welcomes it.”

“But don’t try to manipulate and dismantle the postal system so that people’s votes are in doubt, as to whether they received their ballot or whether it will be received back by the authorities to count their vote,” Pelosi said on MSNBC.

“And, again, have the involvement of Russia, which is fully documented by the intelligence community, that they have been 24/7, for a long time, trying to manipulate this election,” she said. 

“The President welcomes it. It’s wrong,” she said. 

Here is a transcript of the part of Pelosi’s interview with MSNBC where she says President Trump is welcoming Russian attempts to “manipulate this election:”

Craig Melvin: “The President, as you know, has made a number of unsubstantiated claims of mail-in voter fraud.  In fact, it’s been a bit of a centerpiece at a number of his rally speeches.  Just this weekend, he said that Democrats are rigging the election because it’s the only way your party could win. How do you counter this messaging from the President?”

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “Well, I have a motto. We don’t agonize, we organize. And I tell people, don’t pay any attention to him because he either doesn’t know what he’s talking about or doesn’t care that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. The fact that he would try to persuade people that their vote doesn’t count tells you everything you need to know and then more about this President. But forget him. 

“Again, with the coronavirus, let’s not dwell on what he did in the past. Let’s go forward and crush the virus. Let’s go forward and have a free and fair election and, whoever wins, we will honor that decision by the American people. 

“But don’t try to manipulate and dismantle the postal system so that people’s votes are in doubt, as to whether they received their ballot or whether it will be received back by the authorities to count their vote. And again have the involvement of Russia, which is fully documented by the intelligence community, that they have been 24/7, for a long time, trying to manipulate this election. The President welcomes it.  It’s wrong. 

“But, again, forget him.  We’re organizing to make sure – I tell people to go to IWillVote.com.  You’ll find out how you can participate.”
