Levin Holds Pelosi ‘In Contempt of This Nation’ For Comments Regarding 'Fast and Furious' Probe

By David James | June 22, 2012 | 1:52pm EDT

Last night, radio host Mark Levin declared that Nancy Pelosi was “in contempt of this nation" because of her comments about Republican efforts to obtain documents from Attorney General Eric Holder relating to the "Fast and Furious" gunrunning operation.

“Nancy Pelosi, I hold you in contempt. What do you think of that? I just voted. All in favor, aye. You’re in contempt. You’re in contempt of this nation,” Levin said.

Levin criticized Pelosi for her remarks at a press conference yesterday, when she stated, “[Republicans] are going after Eric Holder because he is supporting measures to overturn these voter suppression initiatives in the states.”

“Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want to know why Brian Terry was murdered,” Levin said:

“Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want to know what happened. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want to know why Brian Terry was murdered. She doesn’t want to know why 200 Mexicans were murdered. She doesn’t want to know why guns in this country - at the direction of the Obama administration - wound up in the hands of drug cartels and other murderous thieves across the border.

“She only cares about controlling guns owned by law-abiding American citizens. Otherwise, she doesn’t want to hear anything.”
