House Speaker Nancy Pelosi voiced confidence on Wednesday that Representative Jane Harman “would never do anything to hurt her country.”
”I have great confidence in Jane Harman,” Pelosi told reporters. “She’s a patriotic American. She would never do anything to hurt her country.”
Pelosi made the comments a day after Harman demanded that the Justice Department release tapes and transcripts of any wiretaps to buttress her claims that she did not intervene in an espionage case.
Harman has accused the government of an “abuse of power” and denied reports she had offered to try to help two pro-Israel lobbyists charged with espionage in exchange for assistance in getting Democrats to appoint her to lead the intelligence committee.
