House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) didn't back down from her attacks on President Donald Trump after they agreed to end the partial government shutdown, instead she hit him with a bizarre conspiracy theory.

The Democratic leader made the accusations from her social media account on Friday.

"Roger Stone's indictment makes clear there was a deliberate, coordinated effort by top Trump campaign officials to subvert the will of the American people during the 2016 Election," she tweeted.

Pelosi was referring to the indictment and arrest Friday morning of one of the president's oldest friends and former campaign aides, Roger Stone. He was arrested at his home and charged with lying to Congress about being an intermediary between WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and the Trump campaign.

Pelosi then asked if Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin was extorting President Trump.

"What does Putin have on @realDonaldTrump, politically, personally or financially?" she asked rhetorically.

She then implied that the president was attempting to weaken NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, in order to help Putin's foreign policy schemes.

The speculation that Trump is doing the bidding of Putin because of some compromising information held against him has been made by many of the most virulent of the president's critics. Trump has denied all allegations of this sort.

Pelosi added in a statement, "Lying to Congress and witness tampering constitute grave crimes."

"All who commit these illegal acts should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law," she said. "We cannot allow any effort to intimidate witnesses or prevent them from appearing before Congress."
