House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is holding back some information on Republican Newt Gingrich that could detract from his presidential campaign, according to a report published Monday.

徹ne of these days we値l have a conversation about Newt Gingrich, Pelosi told Talking Points Memo. 展hen the time is right. I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him, four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff."

Gingrich, who served as Speaker of the House, worked with Pelosi in Congress from 1987 to 1999. Pelosi also served on the ethics committee that investigated Gingrich for tax cheating and campaign finance violations in the late 90s.

Gingrich reacted to Pelosi's comments by thanking her for an "early Christmas gift."

He also said Pelosi would be violating House rules and abusing the ethics process if she disclosed anything from the ethics investigation.

"That is a fundamental violation of the rules of the House," Gingrich said in New York following a meeting with Donald Trump. "She's now prepared to totally abuse the ethics process."

Releasing the material would show the "tainted ethics process the House was engaged in," Gingrich said.

The ethics investigation of Gingrich took place when Republicans controlled the House. Gringrich resigned from the House in 1998.

I really, really, really hope that she reveals info. Then she can be booted from the House and America can begin the recovery and healing process from being exposed to her idiocy for all of these years.

I know you all have a very low opinion of Pelosi, so perhaps none of you have bothered to entertain the thought that she may be talking about information that is already on the PUBLIC record. It may just be buried amongst a bunch of useless info.

But even if you are correct and releasing it would get her kicked out. I wonder if it would be worth it if Newt is the Republican presidential candidate.

Option 3 could be she is blowing smoke like Trump and his claim of "wait until you see the interesting info my PI's collected in Hawaii." Whatever happened to that?

But how could she release something already public? That's not releasing, it's just bringing it to someone's attention.

Where are you seeing her saying that she is "releasing" anything? When I read the article, I got from it that she was going to "point out" for lack of a better phrase, something in the 1000's of pages that are part of the public record.

Sorry, you're right. "Reveal" something, not "release". If she has something to say though, just say it. As if she needs to look any more arrogant than she already does.

She may want to get the most "bang for her buck" when he officially becomes the Republican nominee. I guess her actions in this case are judged on your opinion of her overall.

I just don't understand why she even has to play the game. The Republicans are doing a fine job of ruining each other's campaigns.

You are right. I believe it has something to do with a long standing feud between the two. Sometimes, even the best of us, have a hard time abstaining from getting involved.

I guess the thing for me is the double-talk. Out of one side of their mouths Dems talk about being bi-partisan, ending dirty tactics, being transparent, etc., then out of the other side of their mouths they announce their intentions to be partisan, dirty and deceptive.

If Pelosi really cared about our country she would come out with it now and help keep Gingrich off of the Republican ticket and let us go forward with a Romney-Obama run-off and let the best man win. By holding onto whatever it is she proves that her only real goal is partisanship.

No. Based on her beliefs, she feels the country would be better served if Obama gets a second term. With that in mind, she probably feels Obama has a better chance against Gingrich, not Romney.

That is the scariest thing i have heard today. I pray we do not have to have this IDIOT for another 4 years. This country is DOOMED to fail if he is in office for 4 more years. Buy GOLD, GUNS, and alot of AMMO as this country will be in total CHAOS in that very short time frame.

You have yet to see what will happen with this country if he is elected to another term. You think 5 Trillion in debt he has created is small beans?? Just wait until he is done DESTROYING this country. He is a Socialist and he wants this country to resemble other SOCIALIST country's whether you like it or not. Vote for him and if he gets in office come back and look at this thread in 2-3 years so i can say "I TOLD YOU SO".

no one said "small beans". I think the spending needs reigned in. I just think the picture you try to paint that we all need guns and ammo is a bit exaggerated.

as far as the socialist smack... we've had many socialist programs for decades. That word isn't as scary to me as it is some that don't realize we've had socialism in our country for a long long time.

FYI, I think the entire political/governmental system needs to be reworked. the real people hindering this country are the special interest groups that are allowed to bride politicians for favorable legislation. It's not just one man or one administration.

i know you think all republicans swear by gwb but we don't. i think he made a ton of mistakes and bad decisions. however, to claim that 4 more years of obama won't hurt anybody is obscene. So he can keep doubling the deficit but no one is being hurt by that.

plus, a lot of your posts just sounds like carbon copies of someone like glenn beck. that's not to say you don't have legitimate points and concerns. However, I think when one over sensationalizes those points it devalues them. Making it sounds like we'll live in a world of complete anarchy and who ever has the most guns will survive is rather short sighted in my opinion.

Hey we can agree on something!! One thing to solve a lot of the problems is simple and it is "TERM LIMITS". Let's get the LIFE LONG politicians out. They go into politics for LIFE and for themselves instead of going into it for the right reason.

I never let anyone influence my beliefs. I watch and make my own opinions based on facts. Who saw all of the chaos coming in the other countries? Why are we not set up for the same thing? Because we are the GREAT USA? If the economy completely collapses you can bet there will be total chaos. The young (MOWS) type are in it for the chaos. The Majority have no clue why they are camping out they are there just for the chaos. That type of crowd will cause problems for which we have never seen.

Are you basing your opinions on FACTS? I ask because the facts are; those countries with all the chaos happening now have society's with an Upper Class that rules EVERYTHING, a lower class that has NOTHING, and a middle class that is virtually non-existant. That is the formula for chaos. That is the set up that the Republican policies support. If you are truly concerned about chaos in America you may want to re-think your stances on some of the issues.

Republicans want LESS Government while Demoncrats want more. Take from those who made it and give it to those who want it. Your OBAMA wants everyone to be equal and that WILL NEVER HAPPEN. Not everyone is PUJOLS and can hit 450 FT homers although we would all love to and we could make 250 Million over 10 years. Obama is encouraging all this CLASS WARFARE and you know it. This will cause chaos you just wait and see.

I've never really thought this was true. I don't think Republicans want less government, it gives them less power. What politician wants less power? And for that matter, I don't think this has played out over time. What about Nixon's massive War on Drugs, which has sent prison populations skyrocketing? What about Bush all but nationalizing the banks in 2008? Or Reagan's massive defense spending increase? I KNOW that Democrats are for more government, but I've yet to really be convinced that Republicans are honestly for less.

I don't think we are immune by any means and I think the current administration needs to tighten the purse strings. That said, these problems have been around and will be around no matter who is in office, in my opinion.

and... call me naive if you want but I don't see our economy completely collapsing and that's not just because it's the GREAT USA. And when I say "completely collapse" I mean by your scenario of people needing a cache of guns and ammo.

Just because he has a vision of having things like healthcare for people who can't afford it doesn't mean he wants everyone to be equal. Myself, I see a difference from helping people in need over throw everything into a pot and divide it equally. And yes I know there are loads of people getting help that don't need it or shouldn't need it, but I'm speaking baout the people who legitimately need the help.



define chaos please.

agreed. I'm a big backer of term limits. I think there need to be term limits on all political offices, especially federal. If a person wants to run for a different office after he's sat in his current position I think they should be allowed to, but they shouldn't be allowed to camp out in a seat for 20-30 years. And if they get sick (kennedy) or their age (thurman) makes them not able to do their job they should be replaced if even short term until they recover. although that is a element that could be discussed.

there also needs to be huge campaign finance reform. and the campaigns should not start two years before a presidential election. start them 6 months before the election. politicians spend time campaigning and not in the office they are currently in.

I can agree that the ones that desperately need help should get it. As far as define chaos. It will be the the Disorder and confusion that comes from the collapse of our economy. Keep printing money and spending like Obama is and i can promise you CHAOS will be here.
