Pelosi Knew About Harman Wiretap Years Ago
Roll Call ^ | 4-22-2009 | Tory Newmyer

Pelosi Knew About Harman Wiretap By Tory Newmyer Roll Call Staff April 22, 2009, 1:50 p.m. Pelosi Knew About Harman Wiretap

Report on Detainees Raises New Questions for Obama Hoyer Voices Concern Over Wiretapping of Members Democratic Senate Women to Headline Event for Gillibrand NAFCU Board Votes to Publicly Oppose Cram-Down The National Security Agency briefed Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “a few years ago” that they had wiretapped Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.), Pelosi revealed Wednesday.

But Pelosi said she was not told what federal eavesdroppers picked up on the call — and never alerted Harman to it.

“It was not my position to raise it with Jane Harman,” Pelosi told reporters at the Christian Science Monitor lunch. “In fact, I didn’t even know if what they were talking about was real. All they said was that she was wiretapped.”

Pelosi also offered her strongest support to date for Harman, a sometimes-foe that has been rattled this week by charges that the wiretap caught her agreeing to seek leniency for two suspected spies in return for help securing the gavel of the House Intelligence Committee. Harman was ranking member on Intelligence at the time of the alleged wiretap, and she was ultimately passed over for the chairmanship by Pelosi when Democrats won the House majority in 2006.

“I have great confidence in Jane Harman,” Pelosi said. “She’s a patriotic American. She would never do anything to hurt her country.”

"Don’t insult snakes."

It's what came to mind. I don't have any pics of a cockroach den (then again it would be insulting to them too).

"a few years ago"?

In other words, it wasn't Oshama's people with expanded authority doing the dirty work? Got it.

What a gift this could be if anyone would act on it (no one will and the MSM will sweep it under the rug) but Harman, Pelosi and that screw up Gonzalez too?

It's just too good to be true.

Translation - She's a democrat.

The RATS should stop whining. Terrorism is serious, and we can’t tie the hands of the CIA. The Constitution is not a suicide pact.

If Harmon has nothing to hide, she has nothing to fear.

Pelosi is stating an assessment that ____ would not do anything to hurt America?

Pelosi is in no position to make such a remark-—she and Reid are 2 of the most treasonous persons ever to sit in Congress, IMO.

A (D) member of Congress was wiretapped by the NSA and Pelosi didn't bother to ask why, what was recorded, what implications there might be, call the ACLU, or mention it to Harman later?

B.S.!

Pelosi and Harman have long been in competition for leadership positions in the Rat party. Harman is by far more intelligent, attractive, and patriotic than Pelosi. She’s just not as good at playing the “game”.

I agree with those who say Pelosi might have used this to solidify her own position and weaken Harman.

In fact, I didn’t even know if what they were talking about was real.

Sure, the NSA is going around telling Pelosi things that aren't real. Makes sense.

My husband was in the military and now is a government employee, today he has a mandatory “integrity” training class to attend. I had to laugh, imagine politicians requiring employees to take this training.....do as I say not as I do.

She didn't want to embarass the Bush administration.
