Pelosiís office says she doesnít have any new dirt on Newt Gingrich
The Hill ^ | 01/25/12 11:57 AM ET | Daniel Strauss

Posted on 01/25/2012 10:50:45 AM PST by BradtotheBone

Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s office on Wednesday said the minority leader doesn’t have any dirt on Newt Gingrich.

Pelosi has suggested in two interviews that she knows something that could prevent Gingrich from becoming president, but her office said the California Democrat doesn’t have any secrets about Gingrich, who has shot to the top of national Republican polls after winning the South Carolina primary.

"The 'something' Leader Pelosi knows is that Newt Gingrich will not be President of the United States. She made that clear last night," Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement.

"Leader Pelosi previously made a reference to the extensive amount of information that is in the public record, including the comprehensive committee report with which the public may not be fully aware,” Hammill said.

Pelosi made headlines on Tuesday when she told CNN Gingrich would not be president, and that “there’s something I know.”

In an interview in December, Pelosi also drew attention by suggesting there was information that could come out of her office that could damage Gingrich. Pelosi suggested it was related to the House ethics investigation of Gingrich; Pelosi served on the panel looking into Gingrich.

“One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich," Pelosi said at the time. “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.”

Pelosi is prepared to give up secrets she swore to protect.

We all knew that ~ typical San Fran Leftwingtard ~ they'd give up the country for more time in the bath house!

Double-dog dare the witch: Produce what it takes to get Newt out of the race, or you resign from Congress.

That’s what’s good about Gingrich dirt. It’s old, known, tested, and doesn’t stink anymore. Like a white dog pile.

Newt should use this as issue against Romney. Romney sided with her, and now she admits she has nothing. Says everything about Romney’s judgement.

This is the second time she’s brought up the ethics issue against Gingrich (she did it a few months ago) ... and the second time now that she’s folded like a cheap suit.

She found out that Newt was going to bust her if she let it out.

It will come out perhaps ,but it will be leaked from somewhere else.

If you see the video of her making this assertion, she looks quite insane.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zu6ibVy0FPM

Couple that, with a comment another freeper made....

Several others have touched on this, but here goes. Many said that 9-11 happened in part because of a ‘failure of imagination.’ Consider this: Nancy *didn’t* say she knew something about Newt. Well, what if she knows that martial law will be imposed before the election? Or that a coup will be complete by then? I hope this line of reasoning is wrong, but....

With regard to Pelosi, I wish Gingrich would just say something like: “Anyone who has attained the position of Speaker of the House, and then tells the American people in all seriousness that ‘we must pass the bill so we can find out what’s in it,’ is not someone that American voters should ever take seriously about anything.”

Like another freeper said, wow. 1000 pages in a year. 3 pages a day. Must have been pretty heavy reading. Ten year olds read that many pages of Harry potter in one day.

I wondered about either extortion or libel? Whatever it is they staff is running backwards as fast as they can.

She is a tool, a vehicle for the liberal fantasies of her staff. Clearly crazy as a loon still dangerous when wounded.

I figured Newt would have just as much on her.

I hope it’s more than “she has had plastic surgery”, because that would be no bombshell.

Either the Botox does her in or she is going senile and forgets that it is again the law to do this when she is sworn to secrecy and must be reminded.

I would not be too sure of this. It is not like Newt is beyond having any dirt. I think they know something about him, and they are waiting to see if he is a “lock” before they trash him and usher in a 2nd term for the Antichrist.

Nancy Pelosi is a dunce. She assumed that as usual no one would call her on a blatant bluff and the media would carry on her lie! I wish someone would beat her in her Congressional Race or Primary her.....Sadly with the people in her district Congress would get someone as bad or worse!!!!

I'm shocked. /s

Newt called her bluff and it was revealed to be just that.

Romney would've been cowed, afraid there was something he didn't know about.

Of course I meant that she blinked FIGURATIVELY.

On most days the BOTOX will not allow her to blink literally.

The first thing I thought was somebody got to her for tipping their hand.Remember Mark Foley?They waited until the day after the deadline to replace him on the ballot to spring the e-mail trap.I think they’ll wait to see if he gets the nomination before playing heir trump card.

Reminding everyone of what Pelosi is saying is in the public interest.

Everybody knows she's going nuts, or senile, or both. Now she's out there suggesting she knows something is going to happen to Newt (one way to interpret it), so that's of interest.

Are the other Democrats going to shoot him perhaps?

It's good to use suspicions against the Democrats. Newt can take care of himself.

Please don’t let this snake manipulate you with an obvious dirty trick. You can see how obviously chose her words carefully in the initial attack so they remained legally ambiguous as to what she was referring to. Then both times she had her staff member “walk it back” the next day to protect her legally, knowing that that would never make the front pages like the original accusation did. These are carefully scripted political lies and smears, the same stuff they’ve been aiming at conservatives like Newt ever since the frivolous ethics charges. Unless conservatives firmly unite and reject these kinds of tactics, they will be used to take us down again and again and again. Look how well they work, in that they are still using absolutely false charges that the media turns into misleading stories to destroy conservatives 15 years later.
