EXCERPT:

PELOSI: “I will just say this, you want to know if it was more productive behind the scenes. I hear some of the reporters saying, well, Fox reporters saying why did we not want transparency in this discussion? We don’t want to contradict the president when he was putting forth figures that had no reality to them, no basis in fact. We had to if we are going to proceed in all of this have evidence-based factual, truthful information about what works and what doesn’t. I didn’t want to in front of those people say you don’t know what you are talking about.”
