Posted on 05/09/2014 4:30:52 PM PDT by Kaslin
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner this afternoon saying she would not be sending any Democrats to sit on the Benghazi select committee because it "isn't fair," or something. More from the Washington Examiner:
Democrats say they are concerned it will not allow their party to participate fairly in the investigation, which will involve subpoenas and viewing of classified materials related to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
According to a Democratic leadership aide, Pelosi rejects a rule that will not prevent chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., from issuing unilateral subpoenas without consulting with Democrats. The rules would also allow Republicans to prevent Democrats from interviewing witnesses.
Democrats say they do not want a repeat of the investigation conducted by the House Oversight panel, headed by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., which they believed was highly politicized: Regrettably, the proposal does not prevent the unacceptable and repeated abuses committed by Chairman Issa in any meaningful way, and we find it fundamentally unfair.
When should we call the waaambulance? Like I wrote yesterday, get ready for more temper tantrums from Democrats on this issue. This is only the beginning. The good news is Republicans are moving forward without her, as they should.
If I can’t be quarterback, I’m going to take my football and go home.
Now would be a good time to vote to send troops into north korea too.
Nancy, get over it. Elections have consequences.
Pelosi will pay a price for her treason some day.
So don’t send any. When you start to complain about the committee’s conclusions, we can remind you of this.
Didn’t hear her complaining about fairness when those men died over there.
Where was that fairness when you were shoving Obamacare on the country?
Good! Fill the rejected seats with Republican arses and get to work.
And answer every accusation with “They chose this route. Not our problem.”
She won't be going to heaven.
Good. when the lid blows off this thing, I want her, and the rest of the dim leadership to watch it from the outside, and explain from there.
That is a juvenile response from Pelosi. Is it any wonder we have record numbers of Americans on food stamps when the Democrat Minority Leader acts like a baby? Her district needs to elect a grown up.
Put her under oath, subpoena and ask her about any politically motivated emails between the whitehouse and her about obstructing the committee.
Today she's a pillar of the democrat party.
What a nuthouse that party is.
Pussloski is digging the hole deeper ..... Has she yet figured out how she’s going to get out of it ?
good, we can get the hearings done in half the time.
When anybody uses the word “fair” in an argument they have no facts or logic on their side. Fairness is what is fair in the eye of the beholder. I only hear liberals using the word fair. Liberals use the word “fair” whenever they are screwing somebody out of something. In this case, it is the four dead Americans and their families who are getting screwed by the Democrats in the name of fairness.
is there where Gowdy says - we won, get over it? (paraphrasing O)
