“I think that when all of this is done — I’m not associating my colleagues with what I’m going to say right now, I’m just saying it myself — I think there might be a need for indictment,” Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters during a news conference on legislative plans to address the shortage and prevent future ones.
Pelosi did not specify who might be indicted, and a spokesman did not clarify her remarks.
The speaker’s remarks came shortly after House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., took aim at both the Food and Drug Administration and infant formula manufacturer Abbott Nutrition.
“We are going to investigate Abbott, and the chips should fall where they may,” DeLauro said. “People have to be accountable, whether it is at FDA or whether it is at Abbott.”
