Pelosi Plans to Reveal Information About Gingrich 'When the Time is Right'
By Alicia M. Cohn - 12/05/11 11:44 AM ET

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is holding back some information on Republican Newt Gingrich that could detract from his presidential campaign, according to a report published Monday.

“One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich,” Pelosi told Talking Points Memo. “When the time is right. … I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him, four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff.”



Gingrich, who served as Speaker of the House, worked with Pelosi in Congress from 1987 to 1999. Pelosi also served on the ethics committee that investigated Gingrich for tax cheating and campaign finance violations in the late ’90s.

Gingrich filmed an ad with then-House Speaker Pelosi in 2008 to urge action on climate change, which haunted him early in his presidential bid this year. Gingrich called the ad “probably the dumbest single thing I’ve done in recent years” last month.

Republicans in Congress have been slow to rally around Gingrich’s rise to front-runner status in the polls, with former GOP colleague Sen. Tom Coburn (Okla.) stating publicly over the weekend he is not “inclined to be a supporter” of Gingrich due to that past experience.

But Democrats such as the soon-to-retire Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) have suggested Gingrich as the GOP nominee would benefit the Democratic Party.

"He would be the best thing to happen to Democrats since Barry Goldwater," Frank said last week. Goldwater is credited with reviving Republican conservatism in the ’60s.

Pelosi told Talking Points Memo that Frank “spoke for a lot” of Democrats. “I like Barney Frank’s quote the best, where he said ‘I never thought I’d live such a good life that I would see Newt Gingrich be the nominee of the Republican party,’ ” she said.

And Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), who also served in Congress with Gingrich and now holds a position of power as assistant minority leader in the House, charged Gingrich on Monday with lacking the temperament to be president.

“He tends to fly off the handle. He will say almost anything in order to get a charge. I’m sure that he’s not serious when he says a lot of these things,” Clyburn said on MSNBC.



Of course they had nothing to do with the "lynching" of Cain.

It's all they got folks.
There is no depths these people will not go to.

I don’t believe the Dems were behind the demise of Cain. It served no purpose for them to bring out those allegations at this stage of the game. It makes much more sense to bring it out after he won the Repub. Nomination. By exposing it out too early, you run the risk of the whole think blowing over in the minds of voters before the election. It would be more effective to wait until a few months before the election so he would lose support, and not have time to regain it.

It’s more likely, if there was a conspiracy to destroy him, it was masterminded by one of his Repub. rivals or some other individuals that didn’t want to see him win the Repub. nomination.

it was only a matter of time before Newt got his turn in the political crosshairs, you really didnt think he was going to go unscathed into the first primary without the trash being brought up to the surface, especially when many of the young easily manipulated electorate that comprises the Dem base wasnt even alive when Newt was SOH

Jdogger predicted it was about to get ugly, looks like he was just scratching the surface

I thought it had been eerily quiet about Newts past so far. I think the media knows if they give Newt a pass now and he gets the nominee he will be the easiest to "destroy" in the general election...

If he has something to hide I would rather it be exposed now than later. I like Newt right now I think he's the only one that could go against Obama. I cant stand any of the rest

Gingrich Fires Back at Pelosi Over Threat
By Justin Sink - 12/05/11 02:50 PM ET


Newt Gingrich said that a threat from ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to disclose information she learned while serving on an ethics committee investigating him during his time as Speaker of the House would "totally abuse the ethics process" and violate rules of the House of Representatives.

"I want to thank Speaker Pelosi for what I regard as an early Christmas gift," Gingrich said at a press conference in Manhattan Monday.

Gingrich denounced the threat from Pelosi, who is now the minority leader in the House, as "a fundamental violation of the rules of the House," and said that if Pelosi were to disclose details of the investigation, it would expose the "tainted ethics process the House was engaged in." He also called for the House to condemn Pelosi if she were to reveal anything from the ethics probe.






Holy schnikees!!!!!

in poker terms Newt just called her and re raised the stakes...if she were the House Majority Leader she would already have divulged the info, but as the Minority leader she might have just opened a can of worms
