From Pelosi's office:
The classified intelligence/NYT resolution passed 227-183, but House Dems called it out for what it was really effectively. Republicans didn't allow Barney Frank's subsititute ( H.Res. 900) to come to the floor, but as of now it has 119 co-sponsors.
Pelosi: "Continue its oversight of the program? There's never been any oversight of the program. The fact is that because there has never been any oversight of the program, there isn't one person in this body, who will vote on this resolution, who can attest to this statement. They're asking us to vote on something that we absolutely cannot attest to. Not any one of you can attest to this as a fact, because it isn't a fact
Slaughter: Think of what we heard from leading Republicans over the past few days. They've called the disclosure of the swift anti-terrorist program a disgrace, they've accused a newspaper that first wrote it, the ""the new york times,"" of forcing its, quote, arrogant elitist left-wing agenda, end quote, on the rest of the country. If all of this is true, I have no choice but to conclude that our President, President bush himself, is a disgraceful, arrogant left-wing elitist, because it was Mr. Bush who leaked the story."
Dingell: "They tell us that they're protecting our civil liberties while they're tapping our phones and spying in our libraries and looking into our bank accounts. They tell us to trust us on everything. They tell us to trust us on -- trust them on everything because they're protecting their civil liberties. Well, I don't think I can trust this administration to protect my civil liberties and those of the people that I serve.
