"Senator Leahy has a proposal, a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which is a good idea. What I have some concern about though is it has immunity. And I think that some of the issues involved here, like the services part, politicizing of the Justice Department, and the rest, they have criminal ramifications, and I don't think we should be giving them immunity."

--Nancy Pelosi, on Rachel Maddow yesterday, arguing in favor of criminal prosecutions of officials who authorized torture and illegal wiretapping
