Republican presidential candidate hopeful Newt Gingrich sounds a little worried that Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi might follow through with her threat to divulge details of his past transgressions.

"If she's suggesting that she's going to use materials that she developed when she was on the ethics committee, that is a fundamental violation of the rules of the House, and I would hope that members would immediately file charges against her the second she does it," the candidate told reporters in New York Monday.

"I would hope that the House would immediately condemn her if she uses any material that was gathered when she was on the ethics committee."

Talking Points Memo asked Pelosi if she would be willing to tell what she knows.

"Not right here," she said. "When the time’s right."

"I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him, four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff."

EDITOR'S NOTE: Remember when Gingrich said who ever repeated what he said was lying? "Any ad which quotes what I said Sunday is a falsehood," said Newt. He basically admits there's tons of dirt on him we don't know yet. As a Nixon fan, Gingrich is awesome!
