House Republicans to Request Investigation of Pelosi

House Republicans will introduce a resolution Thursday requesting a bipartisan investigation of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) allegation that the CIA lied to Congress about the use of advanced interrogation techniques, according to GOP sources.It was not immediately clear which Republican Member would introduce the resolution, but according to a senior GOP aide there is “no choice— but to call for a probe into the Speaker’s charge.“The Speaker has had a full week now to either produce the evidence or retract and apologize, and she’s done neither,— the senior aide said. “There is no choice now. A bipartisan investigation is needed to get to the facts.”Pelosi has been under attack from Republicans over what she knew, and when, over the use of harsh interrogation techniques during George W. Bush’s first term. Last week, Pelosi went on the offensive and accused the CIA of lying to Members about the use of those techniques, including waterboarding. On Wednesday, former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) called on Pelosi to relinquish her gavel.A spokesman for Pelosi could not immediately be reached for comment.
