House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) issued the following statement after Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) stood by her accusation that the Central Intelligence Agency lied to her and continually misled the United States Congress:
"I'm disappointed that Speaker Pelosi has stood by her troubling allegation that the CIA lied to Congress and does so all of the time.' I'm equally troubled that Speaker Pelosi has failed to make any effort to offer evidence that substantiates her accusations, has stood in the way of a bipartisan investigation to find the facts, and even refused to answer questions from reporters searching for the truth.
"The men and women dedicating their lives to the safety and security of our country deserve better than the behavior that Speaker Pelosi - second in line to the Presidency - has exhibited. Moving forward, I hope that Speaker Pelosi will permit her Members to support a bipartisan investigation so the American people can judge the facts for themselves."
