One of the foremost GOP opponents of the proposed Lower Manhattan mosque said Wednesday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments on the topic were a “threat” to 9/11 families who don’t want it built.

“I only see it as a threat by the speaker to intimidate people who are speaking out against the location of the mosque. I can take care of myself, but I’m thinking of the families — the family members … I mean, these are people whose hearts have been broken by Sept. 11. The wound has now been torn open,” Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) said in an interview with Fox News. “Are they going to have to face an investigation by Speaker Nancy Pelosi somehow implying that they’re part of a conspiracy?”
