House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reportedly told top Democrats that she hopes to see President Trump in prison.
According to multiple Democrat sources, Pelosi said during a meeting, “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”
She made the comments while discussing Democrat’s calls for impeachment during a meeting with senior party members, including Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-GA).
Fox News reports:
A Pelosi spokesperson told the New York Post 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 that was attributed to her.
Sources say Pelosi thinks the American public should vote President Trump out of office in 2020 and then see him face possible criminal charges.
