House Minority Leader John Boehner (R, Ohio) calls on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D, Calif.) to prove her allegation that the CIA lied to Congress and refer the matter for prosecution, or else retract.
Accusing our intelligence professionals of lying to Congress is a very serious charge. If true, the speaker should produce evidence supporting her claim and turn it over to the Justice Department for potential prosecution. If she is unwilling to do so, then she should retract her statement and apologize to the men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting our nation. It is as simple as that, and as of this writing, the ball remains squarely in the speaker’s court.
