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.”
