Pelosi Rips Holder Contempt Charges: ‘I Could Have Arrested Karl Rove on Any Given Day’ (Liar!)

Original Article -  Pelosi Rips Holder Contempt Charges: ‘I Could Have Arrested Karl Rove on Any Given Day’ (Liar!)

House Minority Leader Nancy  Pelosi attacked House Republicans for pursuing contempt of Congress charges  against Attorney General Eric  Holder on Wednesday.

“I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day,” Pelosi said on Wednesday,  The Huffington Post reports. “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.”

“Oh, any number” of charges could have been brought against Rove, Pelosi  said. “But there were some specific ones for his being in contempt of  Congress.”

Pelosi also criticized Republicans pushing for justice for Border Patrol  agent Brian Terry — as House oversight committee ranking Democratic member Rep.  Elijah Cummings has on numerous occasions — as “just strictly political.”

“It’s just the irresponsibility of the Republicans,” Pelosi said. “We want  jobs. Why are they spending this time doing this?”

Pelosi attacked House oversight committee Chairman Darrell  Issa too. “‘Loose cannon’ would sort of be like such a compliment to Darrell  Issa,” Pelosi said. “‘Loose cannon’ would be a moderate phrase. This is an  explosive device. It doesn’t serve our country, and it undermines the true  purpose of contempt of Congress.” (GUILTY  AS CHARGED: Issa’s committee approves Holder contempt citation)

“That’s why I didn’t arrest Karl Rove when I had the chance,” Pelosi added. (DOC  BLOCK: Obama invokes ‘executive privilege’)It’s unclear if Pelosi is aware Rove did not serve in a Bush administration  position that’s identical to Holder’s in the Obama administration. Rove was a  senior policy adviser — a position that’s more similar to Valerie Jarrett’s or  David Axelrod’s on President Barack Obama’s team. Holder is the attorney  general, the top law enforcement official in the United States. Pelosi spokesman  Nadeam Elshami wouldn’t answer when The Daily Caller asked if Pelosi was aware  of the distinction.

Rove was not immediately available for comment.
