Hoyer Declines to Back Up Pelosi's Claim That CIA Misled Congress House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer does not vouch for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's accusation against the CIA.
Thursday, May 14, 2009
Speaker Nancy Pelosi's deputy in the House declined to back her up on her stunning claim Thursday that the CIA misled Congress about its use of enhanced interrogation techniques.
Rep. Steny Hoyer, the House majority leader, panned the recent criticism of Pelosi as a "distraction" during a verbal tangle with Republican Whip Eric Cantor on the House floor.
But when asked directly whether he shares Pelosi's belief that the CIA misled Congress, he backed off.
"I have no idea of that. I don't have a belief of that nature because I have no basis on which to base such a belief," Hoyer said. "And I certainly hope that's not the case. And I don't draw that conclusion."

Sarah Palin talked straight like that. Look how many of her own party back her now, and she didn’t even do anything wrong.
If she’s going down, it’s because the dems want her to. I guess they’ve decided that she was too much of a drag (no pun intended) on their polls, and 2010 is not that far away.
“If shes going down, its because the dems want her to. “
I postulated a few days ago the wild theory that Obama might want her out of the way.
“I have no idea of that. I don’t have a belief of that nature because I have no basis on which to base such a belief,” Hoyer said. “And I certainly hope that’s not the case. And I don’t draw that conclusion.”
A Star Trek “Tricorder” couldn’t decipher this gibberish.
Maybe Hoyer is a Pentecostal speaking in “tongues”.
“Much as I enjoy watching Pelosi being dragged through the mud, this is distracting from Obamas assault on individual liberty and the free market.”
Or is it a distraction while Obama figures out his next move on the assault on individual liberty and the free market?
They must be going ballistic at DU.
Not a soap opera, but one of those reality type shows where everyone is buddy-buddy to each others’ face, but in the background they are scheming on where and how deep to plant a knife in someone else’s back so they can win the grand prize!!
Methinks SanFranGranNan is about to be voted off the island, LOL!!! Buh-bye! Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!! First one in the house of cards to go, how many dominos will follow behind her??
Messin’ with the CIA. These people are nuttier than a squirrel’s secret nesting place, LOL.
If I recall correctly, Hoyer was mighty ticked off that Pelosi was made Speaker.
“Steny is next in line for the Speakers job, if Nancy gets dumped”
He’s 1000 percent behind her.
I am trying to think of the last time a democrat resigned or stepped down from a position of authority?
And so does Michele Bachmann and she is demonized by the media too.
B!+c# is toast.
