House Republicans are demanding an investigation into Speaker Nancy Pelosi's accusation the CIA lied to her about waterboarding terrorist suspects.
They say her charges have demoralized the intelligence community.
As for Pelosi herself, she's gone into full silence mode.
At her press conference Friday, she had little to say about it.
"I have made the statement that I'm going to make on this. I don't have anything more to say about it. I stand by my comment. And what we're doing is staying on our course and not be distracted from it in this distractive mode," she said.
"We're going forward in a bipartisan way for jobs, health care, energy for our country. And on the subject that you asked, I made the statement that I'm going to make. I won't have anything more to say about it. I won't have anything more to say about it! Another subject?"
When she was talking about the controversy, she insisted the CIA during the Bush era never told her it was using waterboarding on detainees.
The CIA insists it did.
