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 didnt 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. Shes a patriotic American. She would never do anything to hurt her country.
Knew? She probably instigated them.
About draining that swamp Nancy.....
beat me to it. I hope she chokes on it.
Don’t insult snakes.
In fact, I didnt even know if what they were talking about was real. All they said was that she was wiretapped.
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).
In other words, it wasn't Oshama's people with expanded authority doing the dirty work? Got it.
-- Nancy Pelosi, election night victory speech, Nov 8, 2006
Snakes eat ‘Rats. I see what you’re saying! ;^)
It's just too good to be true.
notice how it never matters what one of these dems are accused of,the others just rush to their defense. we truly have a ruling class. American royalty entrenched for life.
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.
