Nancy Pelosi Knows Some Incredibly Terrible Secret About Newt Gingrich
Ha, what?! Why does Nancy Pelosi look so sneaky here? And happy, she also looks very happy. Asked what it might be like to come to work next year and find Newt Gingrich as (gulp!) president, she smiles serenely and says, "That's never going to happen." And then she adds, "Trust me."
What does she know? What else could Gingrich possibly have done that we don't already have the details about? He divorces all his wives, and doesn't at all mind dumping a wife in the cancer ward, or telling another unwanted wife that she could also have the option of an "open marriage." We know he is a crook, we know he was kicked out of the House speaker job by his own party, and that he has subsisted in a tawdry wilderness of Tiffany jewelry credit accounts, religious conversions, Easter candy Twitter gushes, weird home-office companies that produce weird DVDs and children's books nobody wants, etc. What did he do, strangle a child to death? Is there VIDEO?
Here's a bit of transcript, via Dangerous Minds:
PELOSI: He’s not going to be president of the United States. This is - that’s not going to happen. Let me just make my prediction and stand by it. It isn’t going to happen.
KING: Why are you so sure?
PELOSI: There’s something I know. The Republicans, if they choose to nominate him, that’s their prerogative. I don’t even think that’s going to happen.
What else could he have done? Maybe she knows about the international bribery assassination plot or whatever that was, this thing:
Newt Gingrich’s wife, Marianne may come back to haunt him. Not because he allegedly asked her for an open marriage, but because she was investigated by the FBI for trying to get a $10 million bribe for having Newt help an arms dealer nicknamed “The Merchant Of Death.”
Marianne Gingrich, who Newt Gingrich called “my best friend and closest adviser,” met with notorious arms dealer, Sarkis Soghanalian in Paris in 1995. Later her aides would claim that they could use Newt to help Soghanalian lift an arms embargo on Iraq so he could collect an $80 million debt, according to an FBI document, if she was given a $10 million bribe.
