Charles Krauthammer hammered Pelosi yesterday, and in his column:
Today it was Newt’s turn…
Newt Gingrich unloaded on Speaker Pelosi today blasting the partisan Democrat’s attack on the CIA and Bush officials as “the most despicable, dishonest and vicious political effort I’ve seen in my lifetime.”
The Note reported:
ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich today offered a blistering critique of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s handling of oversight on harsh interrogation tactics, in a major escalation of partisan attacks being aimed at Pelosi…
“I think she has lied to the House, and I think that the House has an absolute obligation to open an inquiry, and I hope there will be a resolution to investigate her. And I think this is a big deal. I don’t think the Speaker of the House can lie to the country on national security matters,” Gingrich said.
He continued: “I think this is the most despicable, dishonest and vicious political effort I’ve seen in my lifetime.”
Newt’s been wanting to let that out for a while now.
UPDATE: Newt Gingrich today said it was time for Pelosi to resign.
Gingrich will be on Hannity tonight.
