House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has alleged that the CIA lied to her, a criminal offense, given that she’s a Member of Congress. Now, Cornell Law Professor William A. Jacobson is asking her to back up her charges:
The person two heartbeats away from the Presidency immediately should provide law enforcement officials with the evidence she has, including testimony under oath, to back up her allegations of criminal conduct by the CIA, so that a criminal investigation can proceed if warranted.
If the person two heartbeats away from the Presidency is not willing to put her own criminal liability on the line in making these accusations against the CIA, she should resign.
He’s right. She has made an allegation and needs back it up. And if she can’t, she should resign.
Sometimes, it seems Democrats are playing this partisan game where the object is to defeat, discredit or shame Republicans rather than serve the American people as a whole. They sometimes forget they’re in positions of power and responsibility, controlling the fate of the nation.
Mrs. Pelosi sure isn’t acting like a responsible steward (or, given her gender, should I say stewardess?).
