(CNN) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is engaging in a "despicable, dishonest and vicious political effort" to withhold what she knew about the CIA's harsh interrogation techniques, former Speaker Newt Gingrich said Friday.
Gingrich said Pelosi "lied to the House" when she earlier claimed that the CIA had never briefed her about the Bush administration's use of interrogation methods like waterboarding, which is considered torture by the current administration.
"I think that the House has an absolute obligation to open an inquiry, and I hope there will be a resolution to investigate her. And I think this is a big deal. I don't think the speaker of the House can lie to the country on national security matters," the Republican leader said in an interview with ABC Radio.
Republican witch hunts never turn out well.
You got that right David!......I remember NAFTA and how Gingrich tried to push it.

I am very happy to have Newt on board for investigating the whole torture thing. I agree with him. We need a FULL investigation. Not a congressional "truth" commission. One done by the justice department. If Pelosi is involved, she is involved. But the same will need to be done for every Republican congress person in those meetings, as well.
And investigate Bush..
And investigate Cheney...
Investigate them all..I'm all for it.
