Pelosi: ‘I Could Have Arrested Karl Rove’
National Review The Corner ^ | June 20, 2012 | Daniel Foster

Posted on 06/20/2012 1:31:34 PM PDT by bkopto

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is playing politics with its vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, an action she said that even she didn’t seek as House Speaker when she thought someone was legitimately deserving of it.

“I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day,” Pelosi said to laughter, during a sit-down with reporters. “I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol … If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.”

Rove was senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to former President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2007.

Asked on what grounds she could have arrested Rove, Pelosi replied, “Oh, any number. But there were some specific ones for his being in contempt of Congress. But we didn’t.”

Someone should tell Ms. Pelosi that the Speaker of the House cannot arrest nor cause anyone to be arrested except on complaint of a crime having been committed. She apparently believes members of Congress have those plenipotentiary powers reserved for despots like, um, Arabs despots like, um, Bashir al Assad, Moamer Ghadafi (peach be upon him), Mohammed, Saddam Hussein, and Barack Hussein Obama.

I want to play this game too, Nancy.

I could have arrested Nanci Pelousi anytime I wanted to during her Reign (of terror) as house (small h) speaker.

There, Nanci, I trumped you!/s

By the same logic she could go ahead and arrest Holder, too.

Wow. This is really getting to them. She's unhinged.

Boehner better get this voted on in the full House.

And he needs to allow the Terry family to tell Congress in person how Holder was complicit in the murder of his own employee and then covered it up, lied about it and how he and the President denied them justice.

At a certain point the MSM can no longer work for the administration for free.

Nancy, I’m glad you know where the prison in Washington is located. When Sheriff Joe gets through with the eligibility fraud investigation you will join the long line of those SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS who conspired against the american people to do what was necessary to get the anti american communist obama on the ballot.

“I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol … If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.”

Nancy, what goes around comes around. How I would love to see YOU locked in the Capitol jail. That would make my day.

There is only ONE reason she said this, even though there's not an iota of truth that she would have had ANY authority to arrest anyone.

This is only to try to dilute the considerable damage coming on the leftist blogs about the Holder vote.

Any mention of Rove is red meat for them so the Witch threw his name in.

The left has been obsessed with trying to pinpoint exactly when Reagan began exhibiting the signs of alzheimers. This woman has been exhibiting unmistakable signs of dementia for years, but they would love her to become speaker again. She hasn't been within a zipcode of reality in a long time.

I don’t like Rove, I think he is nothing more than a RINO and a globalist. Having said that; the only thing that freak from Frisco, Nazi Pelousy could have him arrested for would be being a hell of a lot more intelligent than her. Of course she is a progressive liberal so intelligence doesn’t enter into it.

She committed fraud when she certified Obama’s candidacy when Speaker of the House. She deleted a very important passage of the DNC certification of Obama which stated ‘in accordance with the United States Constitution’ because she knew Obama was not a Natural Born Citizen (father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth) and therefore ineligible to be POTUS.
