Pelosi: Investigate Planned Parenthood ... Whistleblowers!
Pelosi: Investigate Creators of Planned Parenthood Videos (Roll Call)
Following the release of a controversial hidden-camera video, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doesn’t buy the need to look into Planned Parenthood and the alleged sale of fetal tissue. In fact, with revelations that the video was somewhat misleadingly edited, Pelosi thinks it’s time there’s an investigation into the makers of the clip.
“Everybody’s calling for an investigation into Planned Parenthood,” Pelosi said Thursday. “Let’s have an investigation of those people who were trying ensnare Planned Parenthood in a controversy that doesn’t exist.”
The California Democrat said Republicans had been out to get Planned Parenthood “for as long as I can remember,” and she took issue with how the video had been edited, specifically pointing out that a discussion over the cost of shipping the fetal tissue had been arranged to make it seem as if Planned Parenthood was selling fetal body parts, which is against the law.
