Newt Fires Back at Pelosi: I Would Hope the House Would Immediately File Charges Against Her (Video)
Newt Gingrich fired back at former Speaker Nancy Pelosi today after she told reporters that she would release dirt on Newt Gingrich from a House investigation (a violation of House ethics rules).
Newt thanked her for the early Christmas gift.
Newt Gingrich on Nancy Pelosi’s threats:
“I’d like to thank Speaker Pelosi for what I regard as an early Christmas gift. Well, she’s suggesting that she’s going to use material that she developed when she was on the ethics committee. That’s a fundamental violation of rules of the House and I would hope that members would immediately file charges against her the second she does it. I think it tells you how capriciously political that committee was that she was on it. It tells you how tainted the outcome was that she was on it. And I think what she said to you today should explain a great deal about what happened on the ethics process that Nancy Pelosi was at the heart of it and is now prepared to totally abuse the House process. So I regard it as a useful education to the American people to see what a tainted political ethics operation Nancy Pelosi was engaged in and I would hope the House would immediately condemn her if she uses any information that was gathered by the committee.”
