We knew deep down Pelosi had these fantasies about Trump…
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told senior Democrats that she ultimately wants to see President Trump “in prison.”
The speaker made the shocking remark defending her stance against impeaching the president.
“I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” she said, according to multiple Democratic sources. House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings, Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal and Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel also attended the meeting.
Nadler and dozens of Democrats have been pressing Pelosi to hold impeachment hearings ever since they heard of the word impeachment, but the speaker reportedly believes there should be public and bipartisan support to launch the process.
A Pelosi spokesperson said the lawmakers “had a productive meeting about the state of play with the Mueller report. They agreed to keep all options on the table and continue to move forward with an aggressive hearing and legislative strategy, as early as next week, to address the president’s corruption and abuses of power uncovered in the report.”
The spokesperson did not directly address whether Pelosi made the remark about Trump.
