House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) released a statement adding to her comment Wednesday morning that funding of the anti-mosque movement merits a probe.

"I support the statement made by the Interfaith Alliance that 'We agree with the ADL that there is a need for transparency about who is funding the effort to build this Islamic center. At the same time, we should also ask who is funding the attacks against the construction of the center,'" the release read.

Pelosi expressed the same stance in an interview Wednesday morning.

"There's no question that there's a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some ... And I join those who have called for looking into how ... this opposition to the mosque [is] being funded," she had told KCBS radio in San Francisco.
