Pressure mounts for probe of Pelosi in waterboarding

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is sticking to her story that she did not know the CIA was using waterboarding on terror suspects even as key Republicans cast doubt on her claims and members of her own Democratic leadership are calling for a full airing of the intelligence briefings she received.

The latest GOP attack came from Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who said that Pelosi “should have acted” when she found out about waterboarding in 2003 from an aide who had been briefed on the tactic, rather than silently concur with the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, Rep. Jane Harman of California, who at the time sent a protest letter to the Bush administration.
