    Exclamation Pelosi Open to Prosecution of Bush Administration Officials

    Pelosi Open to Prosecution of Bush Administration Officials
    The House speaker suggests to "FOX News Sunday" that the law might compel Democrats to press forth on some prosecutions of Bush administration officials, saying they may not "have a right to ignore" them.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is receptive to the idea of prosecuting some Bush administration officials, while letting others who are accused of misdeeds leave office without prosecution, she told Chris Wallace in an interview on "FOX News Sunday."

    "I think you look at each item and see what is a violation of the law and do we even have a right to ignore it," the California Democrat said. "And other things that are maybe time that is spent better looking to the future rather than to the past."

    Rep. John Conyers, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, announced Friday he wants to set up a commission to look into whether the Bush administration broke the law by taking the nation to war against Iraq and instituting aggressive anti-terror initiatives. The Michigan Democrat called for an "independent criminal probe into whether any laws were broken in connection with these activities."

    President-elect Barack Obama has not closed off the possibility of prosecutions, but hinted he does not favor them.

    "I don't believe that anybody is above the law," he told ABC News a week ago. "On the other hand, I also have a belief that we need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards."

    Pelosi, during the interview in her ceremonial office, said there is merit in both arguments.

    "I don't think that Mr. Obama and Mr. Conyers are that far apart," she said. "There are different subjects and you treat them differently."

    She hinted that the law might compel Democrats to press forth on some prosecutions, even if they are politically unpopular, adding: "That's not up to us to say that doesn't matter anymore."

    "We cannot let the politicizing of, for example, the Justice Department to go unreviewed," she added. "I want to see the truth come forth."

    A Socialist BIOTCH!!! When is her term as house speaker up? Hopefully her dumb a$$ will be voted out. Figures she's from Kalifornia!

  5. Is this the same woman who wore a head-scarf and met with Islamic terrorists giving them aid and comfort? Yes, indeed, I believe some prosecutions ARE in order, Madam Speaker.

    It's scary in a fascinating sort of way when politicians determine to "police" each other....

    Like witches on a witch hunt.

    Of course, party bias and personal agendas would play no role.... it's for the good of the American people.

    I love my country, but I fear my government.
