Karl Rove Responds to Nancy Pelosi: It's Nice to Know 'Deputy Nancy' Dreams of Putting Me in Her Little Jail
Wednesday, when asked about the contempt citation given to Attorney General Eric Holder, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi went on the attack ... against Karl Rove! She said, “I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day … I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol … If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.” Karl Rove blasted back, saying that Pelosi is “way off base.”
“For Deputy Nancy to have arrested me and thrown me in her one-cell jail, the Congress would have had to hold me in contempt,” said Rove. He said that in 2007, the judiciary committee voted to recommend to the House that he be held in contempt, but the House didn't adopt the resolution.
“It’s nice to know that she dreams of putting me in her little jail, sort of like Barney Fife getting her little one bullet and carrying around the big gun, but we’re still a nation of laws, we’re not an authoritarian regime in which people in position of power, like the former Speaker of the House of Representatives could have thrown me in jail,” he charged.
