Nancy Pelosi Says Newt Gingrich Will Never Be President: ‘There’s Something I Know’

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sat down with CNN’s John King, to whom she hinted about knowing “something” about former House Speaker Newt Gingrich that makes her certain he’ll never be president.

King brought up how Gingrich has described the ethics committee investigation against him as a “partisan vendetta led by Democrats,” to which Pelosi responded that it was a “sad time” during a Republican-controlled Congress. Where the investigation against him is concerned, she added, the “public record speaks for itself.”

She also tackled what King described as a “revisionist” version of how he left the Speakership. “I wasn’t going to hang around,” Gingrich recently said, “like Nancy did.” Pelosi responded with laughter. “Putting it on somebody else. It’s vintage projection, projection, projection,” she said. “He would loved to have stayed, he just didn’t have the support in the caucus to do so.”

King then asked what goes through Pelosi’s mind when she thinks of the possibility that Gingrich could become president. Her response was exceptionally frank:

Let me just say this: that will never happen. 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 instead by… it isn’t going to happen. There’s something I know. The Republicans, if they choose to nominate him, that’s their prerogative.

Oooooo NANCY!
