NO INVESTIGATIONS: House rejects probe into Pelosi CIA claims. “House Democrats on Thursday defeated a Republican push to investigate House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s claims that the CIA misled her in 2002 about whether waterboarding had been used against terrorism suspects. The House voted 252-172 to block the measure that would have created a bipartisan congressional panel. Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, sponsored the resolution.” Apparently, all these calls for torture investigations are now just “partisan politics.”
