Pathetic.

After being threatened with a House ethics investigation former Speaker Nancy Pelosi backtracked on her promise to release classified information on Newt Gingrich to the state-run media.
ABC reported:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi now says she is not sitting on a trove of opposition research on former House Speaker-turned-GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

In an interview conducted Friday and published Monday, Pelosi hinted that once the time is right she has some juicy stories to tell about her former colleague.

“One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich,” Pelosi, D-Calif., told Talking Points Memo. “I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him. Four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff.”

But this afternoon, Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill, suggested that her comments have been misconstrued beyond the leader’s intent.

“Leader Pelosi was clearly referring to the extensive amount of information that is in the public record, including the comprehensive committee report with which the public may not be fully aware,” Hammill wrote in a statement.

That ethics report, which can be found here, examined allegations that Gingrich violated House rules by using his congressional staff to aide him on a college course he taught called ”Renewing American Civilization.”

  1. Cue the song that was played as an intro for Bachmann on that talk show. This time it will be appropriate.

  2. Old biddy got busted. lol.

  3. The sudden back track is proof Pelosi does not have Democrat support beyond her own coven. Clintons have struck a deal to sack Obama . A Newt presidency is terms of the deal and there is something in it for the Clintons. Hillary as VP , Head of World Bank, embassadorship to England…something. Elections are now just a charade of rigged negotiations between lawyers.

  4. She should be punished for using the position to threaten and intimidate someone and for blackmailing, so to speak. Why do we have to wait and see if she says something. She already has committed a serious wrongdoing. A threat is a threat. Blackmail is blackmail.

  5. @donh…Your thoughts probably are not too far-fetched.

  6. When something is leaked, you will now know where the original source is of that leak.

    Nancy – following the Dem game plan……..such a drone!!

  7. I think more investigation on Nan is long overdue.

  8. @donh: Gingrich is a historian and understands the position in which Obama, with a tiny bit of help from W has placed us. He see’s the historic opportunity with which the next President is presented. Gingrich is for Gingrich and only Gingrich, but my suspicions are this: he may get on the right track again solely to cement his personal reputation as a great President ala Reagan. If it comes down to the Country’s best interests vs. Gingrich, Gingrich will choose Gingrich. However, we may well be in a position in which those best interests coincide.

  9. Pfft!! I’ll bet money right now, that if Newr gets the nomination, every single word of the report will be leaked under the guise of the public’s right to know.

  10. The only person left in the race, who was schlepping it around with the tea party and supported “the people” is Michele Bachmann. Newt wasn’t until it was convenient, romney certainly wasn’t, and unfortunately Perry hasn’t either. Who is the left’s worse nightmare? We know lefty Alec Baldwin would support Romney if he had to, but what did he recently put on his twitter account as his “bio?” Conservative, Christian, gun-owning, Mom. That is who he despises and I think that is the direction I’m headed now.

  11. The Republican candidate is going to have to be “one tough cookie” and be able to fire back immediately, like Obama’s campaign did in ’08, and will do in ’12. The “full faith and credit” of the US will be used against our nominee. Plus, they will have to battle the Political Machine, and every newspaper, radio and TV network in the World. I worry about Romney. He got upset at questions by Brett Baier on Fox. What will he do with reporters from the New York Times, PMSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc….

  12. Newt says bring it on, and Nancy backs off. Perhaps Newt knows a great deal about Pelosi.
    That woman just isn’t that smart is she? And in her arrogance she just doesn’t get that people of today are far more savvy and sophisticated—-we see right through her childish school ground games.

  13. Clearly.

  14. Lying, vicious, and stupid is no way to go through life, Nancy.

    It’s difficult to think of another House member who is both as vile and as persistently annoying as Nancy Pelosi. There are actually worse members, but it’s Pelosi who gets all the camera time, inflicting her Wicked Witch of the West persona on all of us. Well, that last bit isn’t really fair; Margaret Hamilton’s witch was ethical and lovely, compared to Pelosi.

  15. Inside “traitor” and special deal Visa IPO Pelosi said what?

  16. This is something everyone should know

  17. Wait . . . he used congressional aides to help him with a college course he taught?!?!?! OH THE DAMN HORROR. Meanwhile Speaker plastic surgery failure – has been passing through laws that hurt her husband’s business compettion and that propels that business forward financially or maybe she was speaking as she was doing some more insider trading? Well we all know she hasn’t actually read that ethics report herself – it wasn’t passed into law.

    So Newts backing of Cap & Trade is in his/our interest?
    Hmmmmmmmmmm…………………………..
    Doesn’t seem to be the makings of a great POTUS!

  19. “I know a lot about him” but now we have “extensive amount of information that is in the public record, including the comprehensive committee report with which the public may not be fully aware,”
    Nancy, there is a thing called Google, people know how to use it, but her original comment leads people to believe she has a smoking gun. Please Pelosi, go back to being insignificant.
