House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to see President Trump in prison, according to a Politico report.
The lower chamber’s top Democrat reportedly made the remark during a Tuesday night meeting while speaking to her leftist counterparts regarding impeachment.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler supposedly pushed the idea of impeachment proceedings, and Pelosi fired back she wants to see him in prison but is not open to impeachment right now.
Democrats in the lower chamber have been pushing Pelosi to begin impeachment proceedings, but she believes there should be bipartisan support to do so, according to the report.
The report went on to say Pelosi wants to hold the president accountable but would prefer the American people vote him out of office in 2020 instead of embarking upon impeachment.
Other Democrats who attended the meeting include House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings.
