Pelosi Statement on Indictment of Congressman William Jefferson

Washington, D.C.—Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today following the federal indictment of Congressman William Jefferson of Louisiana:

“The charges in the indictment against Congressman Jefferson are extremely serious. While Mr. Jefferson, just as any other citizen, must be considered innocent until proven guilty, if these charges are proven true, they constitute an egregious and unacceptable abuse of public trust and power....

Interesting, considering she didn't sound so quick to presume innocence until proven guilty in regards to Tom Delay, Mark Foley, or any other under-fire Republicans. Typical.

"Pelosi made similar remarks following the 2005 indictment of then-Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX). For instance, during an October 20, 2005, press conference, Pelosi stated that DeLay "is innocent until proven guilty" but went on to criticize his continued involvement in the Republican leadership: "I think that the fact that Tom DeLay is still involved in leadership decisions on the Republican side, if that is so, is a reflection of the tolerance that the Republican conference has for the culture of corruption and cronyism in the House of Representatives."

The claim was made that Pelosi never said Delay was innocent until proven guilty.

That claim was false.

That claim was false.

Dems, and Pelosi, had a strange way of showing it by demanding he resign from Congress, and their never ending atttacks

Changing the subject?

The claim was made that Pelosi never said Delay was innocent until proven guilty.

So, do you agree the premise of the thread was wrong?

Where did I say she made that quote?

Try again

Libs do have a double standard when it comes to Dems caught with their hand in the cookie jar
