Rep. Nancy Pelosi has been measured about impeachment talks as most of her party have been ramping up the talk of beginning the process against Pres. Trump.
Pelosi is considered smart by some people and foolish by most others. I’ve never known her to speak in this manner, but if Politico is reporting it, they must have had the right amount of sources to bring this to light.
Members of her party have been angry and out of sorts with Pelosi because publicly she won’t call for impeachment nor does she want to talk on the issue. I believe she wants it, but she doesn’t want people to know, so if things go sideways, she has a way out of the gathering.
As I said before, Pelosi usually keeps thoughts like this to herself, so the media can’t drag her through the political mud, however, late Wednesday night, Politico reported that Pelosi spouted out, in a closed-door meeting, how she would rather see President Trump in prison instead of seeing him impeached.
Democrats have been throwing around the word iron-clad lately in hopes whatever they can find will force the Republican-led Senate to join them in their fight to take down Pres. Trump.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi told senior Democrats that she’d like to see President Donald Trump “in prison” as she clashed with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler in a meeting on Tuesday night over whether to launch impeachment proceedings.
Pelosi met with Nadler (D-N.Y.) and several other top Democrats who are aggressively pursuing investigations against the president, according to multiple sources. Nadler and other committee leaders have been embroiled in a behind-the-scenes turf battle for weeks over ownership of the Democrats’ sprawling investigation into Trump.
Nadler pressed Pelosi to allow his committee to launch an impeachment inquiry against Trump — the second such request he’s made in recent weeks only to be rebuffed by the California Democrat and other senior leaders. Pelosi stood firm, reiterating that she isn’t open to the idea of impeaching Trump at this time.
“I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” Pelosi said, according to multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting. Instead of impeachment, Pelosi still prefers to see Trump defeated at the ballot box and then prosecuted for his alleged crimes, according to the sources. [Politico]
Pelosi wants to hit back the President who walked out the meeting at the WH after he said in so many words, “I’m not picking up this bag of garbage you laid at the front door of the White House.” Our president knows how to play this game with Pelosi. It’s called let her “hold the projection.” Nancy is not used to that!
The professional politicians want to make an example of Trump so that no one from the private sector dares run for the Oval Office.
