John Boehner, GOP to Nancy Pelosi: Show Your Proof That CIA Lied Or Shut Up And Apologize (Video)

House Minority Leader John Boehner calls out Nancy Pelosi for her recent lies and national security threats. He calls on her to produce some evidence for her charges against the CIA or else the Speaker needs to start apologizing to the Agency for slandering them in the eyes of the public and the world.

Fox News reports:

It's week two and Republicans aren't about to let House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's accusation that the CIA lied to Congress slip between the cracks.

House Minority Leader John Boehner told FOX News on Monday that "the ball is in the speaker's court." If she is accusing the CIA of lying, she "needs to come forward, either present evidence or do an apology, and let's get this behind us."

"Lying to Congress is a crime. Purposely misleading Congress is a crime. And if the speaker is accusing the intelligence community of lying to her or purposefully misleading her, then she ought to present that evidence, turn it over to the Justice Department, have them prosecute it," Boehner said.

But Boehner did not call for Pelosi's ouster.
