GOP will continue to press Pelosi on CIA allegations

Republicans don’t plan on forgetting about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) allegation two weeks ago that the CIA had misled Congress, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Calif.) made clear on Tuesday.

After a recess week that took Pelosi to China and saw a Supreme Court nomination dominate the news, Boehner signaled that the GOP still hopes to press Pelosi on her words about the intelligence agency.

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,” Boehner said, reiterating his call for the creation of a bipartisan select committee to investigate Pelosi’s claims.

“Let’s be clear, these are serious allegations. Not providing proof to back them up is an affront to our intelligence professionals,” Boehner continued. “And I’m disappointed that House Democrats continue to stonewall this investigation.”

Pelosi had found herself roiled in a small political controversy after making her allegation, on which Republicans quickly pounced two weeks ago.

Boehner indicated the GOP will not let the issue go anytime soon.

“My colleagues and I are prepared to continue to press this issue until it is resolved,” he said.
