Skip to comments.Dems: CIA briefers may have broken law
Posted on 05/14/2009 3:59:48 PM PDT by HospiceNurse
Democrats on the House intelligence committee said Thursday that CIA officers broke the law in 2002 if they told Nancy Pelosi then that they had not yet engaged in waterboarding.
"If they make a false report, absolutely it's illegal," said Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. "If they fail to make a report when they're obligated to that is also illegal a violation of the National Security Act."
Said CIA Spokesman George Little: It is not the policy of the CIA to mislead the United States Congress.

What fool wants to get into this kind of game with the dang CIA?
I’ll be lmao when the bitches get their payback.
In sharp contrast, it’s perfectly certain that the Democrats have all broken the law.
Of course that assumes that Pelosi is not lying -— that is a stretch in itself. I doubt this lie goes far.
Any chance Miss Nancy disremembered it?
Good CIA, bad CIA.
The hits just keep on coming.
If push comes to shove, the discovery in this should be a hell of a lot of fun!
The wheels are coming off the Obamamobile.
“They just keep poking the hornet’s nest.”
OPINION: Yes, they sure do.
Interesting that you used the word “stretch” when talking about Pelosi.
My God these Democrat lunatics are out of their minds kicking the CIA to the curb. These people will turn around and start burying Obama.
Bam, Bam needs to get a handle on these leftist lunatics in Congress if he wants anything left of his administration in a year.
CIA: Dems should expect incoming.
I want them to keep this crap up. I am making a giant popcorn for the show.
Take the CIA and give the points.
It is the business of the DNC to mislead the American people.
Pray for America, Our Troops and the CIA
Do these idiots know who they’re fighting?
Pass the popcorn - this is gettin good !
You think Congress would have minutes for these briefing even if their secret
The CIA know it’s a crime to lie to Congre$$.
They also know what they signed on for.
They also took an oath, something they share in common.
You’re right, someone is gonna get stung real good.
It's what you get when you are a quote; "stinky fish" swimming with the demoralized who think you are a second class disposable piece of tissue.
The CIA upper level civil service types have long favored the libs and the Dems. The field agents are much more pragmatic. For the life of me I cannot figure out why the Dems in Congress want to pick a fight. They will not win that war. If they don’t back off quick, there will be some very damaging leaks about Pelosi and gang.
I think they have lawyers at their side when they go to those kind of meetings.
The lawyer and aide to Pelosi is mute, for now. I’m sure his memory is still intact... if not, we still have legal ways to make folks talk.
Bring on an inquisition Dems, Please..
Usually this works as the media are in lockstep with the Demos, but Pelosi is just too stupid to know she should have let this go when others realized they wouldn't be able to go after Bush without some of their own being drawn in, and keeps on opening her yap and digging a deeper hole.
Incredibly, Pelosi still has her job. If she was a Repub, the Demos would have been calling for her to step down days ago.
Remember Watergate, when the leaks just kept dripping out, so that there were almost daily revelations? This kept it in the public's mind as the media, who hated Nixon anyway, loved to breathlessly report the newest thing. If it had all come out at once, Nixon could have (if he had been so inclined) attempted to cut his losses and "put it all behind us", to "move forward", as the Demos love to do when caught with their hand still in the cookie jar!
We can't let this go. We must go after any chink in the Demos armor, no matter how seemingly small or insignificant. They add up over time, and you can never tell where it will lead or how it will end up.
Again, look at Watergate. In the beginning of it all, no one thought it would bring Nixon down, but it did.
*passes popcorn* Here ya go!
I hear many of you saying that the Dems are going to get stung by the CIA for this Pelosi thing. I don’t think anything will happen - unless Obama wants Pelosi gone for some reason.
Otherwise, there will be a stink for a while and then this story will just disappear. The drive-bys will not pursue this. The CIA now belongs to the big “O”. He will be coming out with some Supreme Court appointee and then that’s the last we will ever hear about this.
I hope, I pray that I’m wrong, but I just don’t believe anything substantial is going to come from this - except possibly further politicizing and weakening of our counter-intelligence agency.
Today Pelosi “Blinked”....and we had no idea that she could
I did not have brief relations whith that ............
I don't know. I can't recall any politician accusing a federal agency of outright lying before this, especially one with CIA's capabilities. I'm sure some of the people over there are seriously ticked off at Pelosi. I would not be suprised if someone there is planning a suprise for Ms. Pelosi.
Also, there is way too much media coverage on this now, as she can't keep her trap shut.
Yes, you did...
No, I didn’t...
Yes, you did...
No, I didn’t...
Sheesh, this is getting old. I used to send the kids to their rooms when they got into a finger pointing match like this. Honestly, I expect better of our elected officials, even SanFranNan.
I know I shouldn’t be surprised at her lies. But, I am extremely concerned at the level of support she continues to receive from the other LibTards.
It’s time to take back the country. Let’s start with Pelousy.
Please, can the CIA ..who knows all about Obama..just leak his birth certificate already and let us know the big secret.
Yeah, the CIA, having all the tools at its disposal, probably has all the necessary information to torpedo anyone in the Congress!
Just keep it up, guys! Let’s get rid of Pelosi et al !
I want to see her do the Perp Walk!
Hey Dems, just exactly who’s illegal lies are you concerned about?
You get your speaker straightend out, then you can criticize others!
Move over...I want to join you!! This could be our summer entertainment.
No need to invoke hope or prayer....you're wrong, period. Nothing is going to stop Nancy Pelosi from being forced to resign. The only question is, how many body bags do the Dems want on their hands before they come to their senses....
Works for me, go after them, I’d like to hear what they have to say. A shame it’s not a crime for a Congresscritter to lie. Or be responsible for slander.
The left has a history of hating the CIA, going back to the Church hearings in the 1970s. In its heyday, the CIA exposed many soviet moles during the cold war. The democrats hate the CIA for that. I suspect well soon see a lot of skeletons jumping out of rat closets. Maybe well get to see a few treason trials against the rats.
Pop the popcorn. It looks to be a good show.
“Roll the video tape” (borrowed from the great Warner Wolf)
I love this metaphor. I can tell, you, like me, are a sensative soul.
3 letter and no letter types won’t be crossed with impunity. Ever.
Obama couldn’t serve drinks in the Capitol.
Kennedy is a murderer.
Geithner is a tax cheat, along with Rangel.
Schumer crashes banks.
Feinstein gives billions to her hubby’s businesses.
Clinton was involved in many criminal investigations.
Daschle, Richardson, Dodd, Pelosi, Frank...all liars and cheats.
Blago, Kilpatrick, Spitzer, Patrick, Marion Barry, Blago, Mayor of Baltimore...on and on, and on...
Bill Clinton, Ron Brown, Vince Foster...Arkancide.
The Liberal “Base”:
Open Borders Advocates
Wall Streeters getting bailouts
Leak the minutes and bury the scumbag Democrats.
csense: “Nothing is going to stop Nancy Pelosi from being forced to resign.”
Nevadan: I hope and pray that you are right.
It’ll happen. There is a debt here, and it needs to be paid in blood. Accusations such as hers can’t be put back in the box, or swept under the rug. She’s crossed a line, and the CIA knows that. In all honesty, it may not happen as soon as I think it will happen, but it will happen nonetheless...
