– the act of retiring into inactivity; “he emerged from his hibernation to make his first appearance in several years”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Sunday on “Fox News Sunday” that she was open to pursuing investigations of abuses by the Bush Justice Department.
“I think that we have to learn from the past and we cannot let the politicizing, for example, of the Justice Department, to go unreviewed. Past is prologue. We learn from it.”
Pelosi told host Chris Wallace she thought the Obama administration would be open to scrutinizing the Bush White House, as House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers has urged.
“I don’t think Mr. Obama and Mr. Conyers are that far apart. I want to see the truth come forward.”
