Expose the Left has CNN video on the Cynthia McKinney altercation:
House Minority Leader Pelosi: "Just because the Capitol Police didn't recognize you is no excuse to hit an officer, if that's what happened."
House Minority Whip Hoyer: "It is the responsibility of anyone who visits the Capitol whether they're Members of Congress or visitors to fully cooperate with the Capitol Police. You can't expect the Capitol Police to know every member."
Congressional Black Caucus: "No comment because the facts haven't been established, but praise for the Capitol Police."
But McKinney is still playing the race card: "It doesn't matter whether you're in the United States Capitol or the Georgia Capitol, the issue is racial profiling, and that's something we're going to have to deal with as a country."
Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney Kenneth Wainstein (bio) is reportedly still studying the matter.
