Pelosi will vote to override Obama veto on Saudi 9/11 bill

by Mike Lillis - The Hill  |  published on September 23, 2016

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday she’ll oppose President Obama if he vetoes legislation empowering families of victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts.

“I’ve worked with these families for a very long time, and I think they should have their day in court,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol.

Pelosi, who was the top Democratic on the House Intelligence Committee at the time of the 2001 attacks, noted that she had sided with the families in the controversial push to create the 9/11 Commission, an independent panel that investigated the attacks.

“When it went to the floor, I was accused of being a traitor for bringing it up … [and] it did not pass at that time,” she said.

Only after lawmakers attached the measure to a must-pass vehicle — and after the families of 9/11 victims increased their pressure — did Congress approve the outside probe.

    What happened? Did Pelosi temporarily take the needle out of her arm, inducing a rare moment of lucidity? Never thought I’d live to see the day when Nancy would oppose His Lowness, Obama! I’m stunned and confused by this turn of events!
