House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif. is seen on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, May 14, 2009. Earlier Thursday, under strong attack from Republicans, Pelosi accused the CIA and Bush Administration of misleading her about waterboarding detainees in the war on terror and sharply rebutted claims she was complicit in the method’s use.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) turned down invitations to be on several Sunday morning talk shows and is instead spending the weekend with her family.
The Speaker was invited to appear on NBC’s “Meet the Press,â€ ABC’s “This Week,â€ â€œFox News Sundayâ€ and CNNâ€™s â€œState of the Union,â€ according to sources at the networks.
One source said Pelosi (D-Calif.) will be attending her granddaughter’s first communion in Phoenix on Sunday.
Pelosi’s office confirmed she is with her family this weekend.
“We have turned down Sunday shows many, many times before,” Pelosi spokesman Nadeam Elshami said.
Well, Pelosi has attempted to back away from her criticism of the CIA today.
“My criticism of the manner in which the Bush administration did not appropriately inform Congress is separate from my respect for those in the intelligence community who work to keep our country safe,” Pelosi said in a statement Saturday.
In the meantime, the Speaker will hide out, stonewall and hope the news cycle moves on.
Americans deserve some answers from Pelosi about her obvious LIES.
