From Jules Crittenden
>>Steny Hoyer, the guy Pelosi didn’t want for number two when she was pushing that libelmongering pork-enthusiast Murtha, on the House floor re Pelosi’s current woes. Politico:
Rep. Cantor: “I share with the gentleman the notion we need to follow the law. But if there is somehow a belief, and I’d ask the gentleman whether he shares this belief, that somehow the CIA or others have intentionally misled this body, because that seems to be some concern that has been raised today? And I yield.”
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer: “I have no idea of that, don’t have a belief of that nature because I have no basis on which to base such a belief. And I certainly hope that’s not the case. I don’t draw that conclusion.
So Hoyer has no basis on which to base a belief that the CIA has misled Congress. He certainly hopes that’s not the case. He doesn’t draw that conclusion.
That sounds a lot like the sound you hear when a House Speaker gets thrown under a bus.
