Go John...

Boehner keeps up the pressure on that horrid lying harridan Nancy Pelosi. Of course the press will ignore this, but it is still an honorable effort, deserving of our support....

House Minority Leader John Boehner:

"Ten days ago, Speaker Pelosi not only refused to back up her accusations against our intelligence professionals, but she actually stood by her comments that they have repeatedly lied to her and lied to Congress. "Now, the Speaker gets regular briefings from our intelligence professionals today. Does she still believe that they're lying to her?

"I made this request of the Speaker more than two weeks ago: Either offer proof that our intelligence professionals lied to her or she should retract that statement and offer an apology. And to date she's done neither. She's done nothing to address the damage that she's left by her unsupported accusations.

"This is a matter — I think it's serious and requires a bipartisan investigation to determine the facts. Republicans have requested that the — that a bipartisan select committee of the Intelligence Committee be established to look at the issues that the speaker has raised.

"Unfortunately, ten days ago, House Democrats blocked this request for a bipartisan investigation.

"Let's be clear, these are serious allegations. Not providing proof to back them up is an affront to our intelligence professionals. And I'm disappointed that House Democrats continue to stonewall this investigation. And my hope is that the Speaker will step up and bring this issue to rest once and for all.

"My colleagues and I are prepared to continue to press this issue until it is resolved."
