Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is asking supporters for contributions to help prevent the “subpoenas and investigations” that would result from a GOP majority.
In a fundraising letter for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Pelosi says if Republicans take back the House, they’ll initiate “endless investigations against President Obama” and “bring back the days of Ken Starr and the politics of personal destruction.”
“Remember a Republican-controlled Congress that devoted more time to subpoenas and investigations than to solving our country’s problems?” Pelosi asks. “There is far too much at stake for our country now to allow it to happen again.”

Democrats Take Majority in House; Pelosi Poised to Become Speaker
“The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history,” Pelosi said.
So my question to Speaker Pelosi is a simple one – ‘What are you worried about, Nancy?’ If in fact you have the “most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history” then you should welcome investigation to back up your promise to ‘restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C.’ and discredit the GOP as witch-hunters, right?
Or perhaps Pelosi has something to worry about… I think the latter.
