During an interview on The View, House Speaker Pelosi dismissed Joy Behar’s question about why Pelosi is refusing to hold impeachment hearings by saying "If somebody had a crime that the president had committed, that would be a different story."
One and a half years ago, when the call for impeachment really took off, Nancy Pelosi argued that they had to "build the case" so that it was clear to the American people that it wasn’t a partisan attack. One year ago she claimed they "didn’t have the votes". Six months ago she claimed there "wasn’t enough time". And now, remarkably, Nancy Pelosi, leader of the Democratic Party in the House, is further covering up for the rogue presidency of George W. Bush by claiming on a national television show that Bush and Cheney haven’t committed any crimes.
This just days after some 12 people came before the House Judiciary Committee and brilliantly testified to the numerous obvious crimes committed by the Bush administration.
