"I wish I knew what that was. I'd tell people what it is right now. That's one of the reasons why I'm saying that all of the records that were part of the ethics investigation, all of the transcripts, all of the records have to be made public," Romney said. "Not just the final white-washed report, but the full record, the reason that 88 percent of the Republicans in the House voted to reprimand their own Speaker, the first time in American history that's happened.

"We need to understand why that is and those records need to be released because you know that if Nancy Pelosi knows those things right now, she will hand them to Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaTrump's self-interest is at odds with safe coronavirus policy Progressive youth groups issue demands for Biden ahead of general election Obama: Robust coronavirus testing and monitoring the key to reopening country MORE's campaign if Speaker Gingrich were our nominee.”

Pelosi's office said Wednesday that she did not intend to imply she had information not available on the record.

"The 'something' Leader Pelosi knows is that Newt Gingrich will not be President of the United States. She made that clear last night," said Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill in an email to reporters.

"Leader Pelosi previously made a reference to the extensive amount of information that is in the public record, including the comprehensive committee report with which the public may not be fully aware."

Gingrich said Wednesday that Pelosi was living in a fantasy world if she believed she had dirt on him.

"She lives in a San Francisco environment of very strange fantasies and very strange understandings of reality," Gingrich said on NBC's "Today Show" Wednesday. 

"I have no idea what's in Nancy Pelosi's head," Gingrich added. "If she knows something, I have a simple challenge: Spit it out."
