Skip to comments.Pelosi: ‘I Could Have Arrested Karl Rove’
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 didnt 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. Im not kidding. Theres 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 didnt.

...so you vetted the Kenyan instead...nice job Nazi
Oh, come on, Nan...
if you can’t state these “specifics”, STFU.
Over the top even for Pelosi. These folks are really rattled.
Yes, they are. I smell blood in the water. ;-)
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.
Culture of corruption, Hoisted on your own petard, vile bwitch!
The loon really needs to be committed.
Nancy...you’re not taking your Aricept!!!!!
Pelosi believes her own hype.
Nan, You Ignorant Slut!
Just more proof the liberalism is a sick mental disease.
IF anyone needed locking up, it’s this botox skank for foisting the Kenyan upon America.
Crawl back into your padded cell, Natzi.
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.
She is making stupid remarks like Maxine Waters.
She is so full of BS, if she could whe would.
Alzheimer’s is even sadder in the female of the species, isn’t it?
Holder lied. People Died.
She’s not whistling past the graveyard, she’s dragging a nuclear powered calliope.
this lady loves power over people
Yeah even the media is terrified that Little Boots may get his day in the Colosseum with the lions.
yikes whe - she
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.
Good Lord this woman is an asshat..
Comparing Rove a staff member to Holder the Attorney General just shows how hateful and ignorant this woman can be..
Her drug dealer has the best drugs in the world
Hey, Speaker Boehner! Pelosi says you have the power to arrest members of the executive branch and imprison them in the Capitol building. Get to steppin’, son!
If holding Nanci Pelousy in contempt is a crime, I’m a repeat offender.
Did someone break wind on Capitol Hill, or did the Bag Lady speak?
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.
Hey Nancy, Steve Kroft(60 Minutes)has some more questions about IPO’s and insider trading...
Nancy, what goes around comes around. How I would love to see YOU locked in the Capitol jail. That would make my day.
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.
Nazi just had a big cup of dingbat juice for lunch.
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.
As Glinda the Good Witch of the North would say: “Rubbish. Now get out of here before someone drops a house on you too.”
A perfect example of what extended use of hard drugs does to the mind ... in her case there wasn’t a whole lot to lose in the first place.
That she believes such is reason enough to remove her form office.
The DNC is out of control!
Woulda ... coulda ... shoulda ...
The fact is you DIDN’T.
Wow, what a maroon. Arrested? What brought that into her head, Holder wasn’t arrested.
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.
She should be jailed for swearing that Obama was a US citizen.
Wow. Comment #45 & 46 posted at exactly the same time, down to the second. Hmmmm.
Mafia fantasizing and reminiscing about Benito.
Nancy, don’ t you get it? The gigs up. Now you are a bitter clinger hasbeen talking about your days of power.
This is nothing more than a signal to Boner that the Republicans somehow owe the Democrats a marker and she is calling it in.
