Graham: ‘If it is a crime, she was part of it’

Republicans are really starting to pile on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after she accused the CIA of lying to her about whether water boarding was being used on detainees.

The latest is Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Graham just appeared on Fox News and said that Pelosi knew it was going on and trying to “have it both ways,” meaning blasting the Bush administration for the techniques but denying any accountability for them.

“This is ridiculous,” Graham said.

Graham went on to say that Pelosi’s criticism of waterboarding is purely politically motivated.

“The people driving this train have a political agenda,” he said.
