Pelosi plans to reveal information about Gingrich 'when the time is right'

Pelosi plans to reveal information about Gingrich 'when the time is right' By Alicia M. Cohn - 12/05/11 11:44 AM ET

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is holding back some information on Republican Newt Gingrich that could detract from his presidential campaign, according to a report published Monday.

“One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich,” Pelosi told Talking Points Memo. “When the time is right. … I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him, four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff.”

Gingrich, who served as Speaker of the House, worked with Pelosi in Congress from 1987 to 1999. Pelosi also served on the ethics committee that investigated Gingrich for tax cheating and campaign finance violations in the late ’90s.

Gingrich filmed an ad with then-House Speaker Pelosi in 2008 to urge action on climate change, which haunted him early in his presidential bid this year. Gingrich called the ad “probably the dumbest single thing I’ve done in recent years” last month.

Republicans in Congress have been slow to rally around Gingrich’s rise to front-runner status in the polls, with former GOP colleague Sen. Tom Coburn (Okla.) stating publicly over the weekend he is not “inclined to be a supporter” of Gingrich due to that past experience.

But Democrats such as the soon-to-retire Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) have suggested Gingrich as the GOP nominee would benefit the Democratic Party.

"He would be the best thing to happen to Democrats since Barry Goldwater," Frank said last week. Goldwater is credited with reviving Republican conservatism in the ’60s.

Pelosi told Talking Points Memo that Frank “spoke for a lot” of Democrats. “I like Barney Frank’s quote the best, where he said ‘I never thought I’d live such a good life that I would see Newt Gingrich be the nominee of the Republican party,’ ” she said.

And Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), who also served in Congress with Gingrich and now holds a position of power as assistant minority leader in the House, charged Gingrich on Monday with lacking the temperament to be president.

“He tends to fly off the handle. He will say almost anything in order to get a charge. I’m sure that he’s not serious when he says a lot of these things,” Clyburn said on MSNBC.

Unfortunately, I happen to agree. Gingrich with his baggage would be a bonanza to the Democratic Party. How stupid can Republican primary voters get?

"Pelosi" and "ethics" in the same sentence?

Seriously.

Not to mention copies of the records Hillary got from the FBI.

It’s time for Sarah to get back in the race. She’s already had her life and background fully exposed and there’s no there there.

Newt has too many skeletons and the opposition know where they are.

So what took place in the investigative committee and documents review is going to be public. There was a public report. I don’t know what, if any privacy privilege applies to the investigative proceedings and documentation. With Democrats, that is a rhetorical question, anyway.

If Pelosi had anything substantive, they would have used it in the 1990’s to depose him. All that is probably left is unverified innuendo. She needs to keep in mind that negative campaigning backfires. Plus, all Newt has to do to respond is say “do you want another 4 years of these people running things?”

“I think you have an agency which would get up every morning, very much like the National Institutes for Health or the National Science Foundation, and try to figure out what do we need to do today to get a better environment that also gets us a better economy,”

Newty speaking about his idea for creating an Environmental Solutions Agency at a meeting of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association.

I'm not sure Nancy can top Newt's own idiocy.

So, what exactly did Newt do in the 90s that got him “taken down” in the first place?

I honestly don’t remember.

Finally, had to get to reply 18 before someone got it. This is the translation of Pelosi-speak:

“Oh hell, Newt will embarrass us in the debates. Let me “warn” Republicans not to nominate him or we’re in trouble.”

Yes, Nancy, you need to check your own closet, Stretch.

A truly principled person would never sit within 10 feet of Pelosi for any price, for any reason.

For me, this ad sickened me!

Thanks. I’m using sandpaper on my eyeballs trying to get rid of that image. That’s almost as bad as the nightmare I had a long time ago. Woke up in bed with Ruth Bader Ginsberg on one side and Janet Reno on the other. Yuk!

I don't think they can destroy Perry or Santorum, so that fight will have to be one based on the issues.

Michele pretty much did her own self in.

Gingrich is not well liked among women and a host of others no matter what their political leanings. Nan can’t reveal anything (other than she and Newt “did it”) that most people already don’t know.

Either way, Pelosi is a Catholic disgrace.

He's got back-up. He switched to Catholicism since then. He's got repentance. All his sins have been forgiven.

When is someone going to reveal information about Pelosi? How she regularly cashes in on insider information, had her net worth rise 62% last year despite a recession, and how she constantly appears to be under the inluence of controlled substances such as cocaine. Oh but no need to reveal this info as everybody already knows it.

If only it could be proven Obama denounced his citizenship and went to college as a foreign national...OR...that he lied he was a foreign national to get financial assistance.

Since so much about him hasn’t been released, it will be hard to dig up much former dirt on him..although that pit has to be a very, deep one.

She didn’t have to. There were enough REPUBLICANS wanting his power, and to quash his reforms, that the Dems just sat back and watched.
