Can she really be that scared? Of course she knows it's coming and that she will be out of a job and reviled by the majority. She cannot help but see the writing on the wall. She's going down. But she is scared of more than that. She is afraid of going to jail. She is afraid of being publicly disgraced, tarred and feathered.
Nancy Pelosi wrote a fundraising letter to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that says if Republicans take back the House, they'll initiate "endless investigations against President Obama" and "bring back the days of Ken Starr and the politics of personal destruction."
"Remember a Republican-controlled Congress that devoted more time to subpoenas and investigations than to solving our country's problems?" Pelosi asks. "There is far too much at stake for our country now to allow it to happen again."
Uh, what are you scared of Nancy? It sounds to me like someone has some serious skeletons that aren't hidden in the closet very well. Yes, Republicans will seek out and prosecute violations of the law, including unlawful and/or unconstitutional use or abuse of power. Mrs Pelosi's letter is raising eyebrows all over Capitol Hill, including those of Darrell Issa (R-CA), chairman of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee.
Generally, flight is a very good indicator of guilt. Pelosi is conceding that Obama and she and others are caught even before we know what they have been caught doing, and is already gathering a legal defense fund. Save us all a lot of time, Nancy. What did you do?
Hat tip: The Hill.
