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?
