WASHINGTON (AP) Does House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi have dark secrets about GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich?

For the second time in recent weeks, she hinted that she does. And then indicated she doesn’t.

In a CNN interview Tuesday night, Pelosi said that Gingrich is not going to be president. Asked why she’s so sure, Pelosi said there is something she knows.

Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said Wednesday that what she knows is that Gingrich will not be president.

Previously, Pelosi hinted that she knew a lot about Gingrich because she served on the House Ethics Committee that investigated his conduct. She later said she was referring to material already in the public record.

Gingrich called Pelosi’s remarks baloney, and said if she knows something, she should come out with it.
