Skip to comments.Pelosi asks for donations to fend off potential GOP investigations
Posted on 06/23/2010 11:14:26 AM PDT by jazusamo
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is asking supporters for contributions to help prevent the "subpoenas and investigations" that would result from a GOP majority.
In a fundraising letter for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Pelosi says if Republicans take back the House, they'll initiate "endless investigations against President Obama" and "bring back the days of Ken Starr and the politics of personal destruction."
"Remember a Republican-controlled Congress that devoted more time to subpoenas and investigations than to solving our country's problems?" Pelosi asks. "There is far too much at stake for our country now to allow it to happen again."
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, has shown himself willing and eager to be a thorn in the side of the Obama administration on everything from the BP oil spill to the Joe Sestak job offer. Few doubt that he would use a chairmanship to ramp up those efforts.
How is going to float a $18,000/month SF office as a member of the minority? If she can float that, why in hell is shucking for bucks for legal representation? Oh BTW Nancy, I hope you were legally circumspect in all your dealings as Speaker of the House.
I’ll treat her request for donations to be a confession of wrongdoing.
Wait a minute.
Just yesterday Steny Hoyer said those times were prosperous. Now, they’re not?
Dems are mentally ill.
Her eyes are even bigger now...runnin’ sceered are we Natzi?
I knew that when Issa opened his mouth, the cRATs would use it for political purposes (to not give control to the Republicans).
Nanzi ought to cancel her 18k a month lease for her office. That’ll pay for some of it.
Sounds like Nancy knows that she’s well past the point of no return.
You are sooo right Nutjob Nancy! It is almost as of somebody sent a bunch of lawyers to fix an oil leak. Who in their right mind would do something THAT stupid?
Issa has certainly been a thorn in their side, too bad we don’t have a lot more like him. She’s going to try but she won’t pull it off, IMO.
She has a HELL of a lot more faith in the GOP than I do!
Those wussies will “let bygones be bygones” if they gain the majority because they SOOOO want to be liked, in the clique, and invited to all the DC parties!
The dems will make demands on them that they “play nice and share” and the GOP will “roll over and show their bellies.”
My golden retriever has more fight in her than those wusses!
Avoiding GOP investigations? Oh yeah, I remember the investigation-free Bush years!
I love it when the libs use projection. They are the masters of the politics of personal destruction!
LOL!!! She says this as if no one noticed the dems' attempted personal destruction of Bush, Cheney, Palin and anyone else who had the temerity to stand in their way. I will say this... I'm for the personal destruction of the dem machine.
Those Republicans were able to balance the budget... asshat!
Heres a quarter you nasty bit*h. Call somebody who cares. And oh, thanks for admitting you need to defend your traitorous behavior.
I hope they hang your botoxed mug on that collossal gavel you sported about a few months ago with that smug look on your withered puss.
Oh no no, Nan! This ain’t gonna be just about investigating the Kenyan...
Everybody in the current Congressional Leadership, right along with the Administration are gonna be exposed and prosecuted for the treasonous pieces of sh!t that they are.
And we’re gonna snip the puckerstring on the protection you’ve put around yourself, too. Let those 70 year old rolls of criminal skin fall where they may.
Use your flower budget, Nanzi.
Now we KNOW it is going to be a Tsunami !!
The rats are packing up and stockpiling money !!
Funny thing, just yesterday for some unknown reason I received one of these dccc mailings.
I returned it with a great big FUBO written in big bold magic marker inside.
She had better be right. Subpoenas need to out number toilet tissues in Speaker’s restroom.
Well said...With them in the majority they can give lame explanations then ignore the issue, with them in the minority that isn't going to happen.
“the politics of personal destruction.”
Shame on Ken Starr for exposing that a Dem president had committed a felony by lying before a grand jury. Since Bill Clinton was our first black president, it’s pretty obvious that Ken Starr was nothing but a racist.
Maybe she and Obamass are running out of money to keep that pesky BC or lack of it under wraps. Get a real job Nan...you’re going to need it.
Suck it up buttercup. You will lose the speaker position, AND get to face investigation for your own corruption Nancy. Are you shaking in your heels yet dear?
heh heh heh
She and the Rats will never admit the truth of that. I still like to see it written down. :)
The GOP is losing a number of incumbents as well... the people have had it with career politicians. With a cleaner slate, we might actually do something for America, like roll back all the stupid crap the Dems have illegally done under an illegal president.
Dems should sit down, shut up, and let us fix the freakin mess they have made since 2006.

Nancy Pelosi is working hard to end the “culture of corruption” in DC.
This woman is a crackpot. And doesn’t she know that by her words here she’s basically admitted to the corruption? And the answer to everything for them is to throw money at it. Go figure. All the money in the world can’t fix what’s wrong with you and yours Nanc.
“Nanzi ought to cancel her 18k a month lease for her office. Thatll pay for some of it.”
Or cut back on the Botox.
“There is far too much at stake for our country now to allow it to happen again.”
Perhaps they should have thought of that before they took part in criminal behavior.
They are the ones that hang around the courts and file suit if they do not get their way (with leftist judges that they put into the system) like children in a tantrum. They are the ones who, when given the majority, spend massive amounts of our money placing every Republican and conservative under investigation to keep their mouths shut and keep them in line.
The Republicans are too wussified to investigate and prosecute the REAL corruption and crimes of the Democrats.
She is scared.
She can use her own money. What’s with the begging stance of the Dems? They should be embarrassed.
...but they won’t be.
Her last Botox treatment went straight to her brain.
Oh Nan we on this side of the isle won’t be happy until we see you behind bars! From your letter to G-d’s ears!
Pelosi thinks she’ll still be in the House after the Republican victory in November???
Or John Dennis is.
Let’s hope she’s retired by the voters and doesn’t have to worry about subpoenas and such.
Representative John Dennis . . . has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Let all the poisons in the mud bubble out.
she needs to be first up for fifty counts of fraud, one for each state...
Culture of Corruption.
Nancy knows she's surrounded by CROOKS and THEIVES and SEDITIOUS TRAITORS.
She promised voters NATIONALLY the "most ethical congress in history, heh heh heh".
Payback will be a lark as she and hers and exposed as the thugs they are and the media that covered up their s*** stains will also be exposed.
The media colluded with the DNC to paint this picture of a "culture of corruption that rose to the top ranks of the GOP" back in 2006.
The Pravda Media will pay along with the DNC.
DRAIN THE SWAMP
Hey now, don't call Jamie Gorelick a lawyer. She's an expert on National Security and is executive finance material for Fannie Mae (worthy of a $30million bonus for looking the other way).
Correct...The enemedia have been the enablers for the DemRAT corruption for a number of years but they’ve been especially busy covering for them and Dear Leader Zer0 both before and after his election.
She knows her days are numbered.
