House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a meeting with top Democrats, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, Way and Means Chairman Richard Neal, Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings and others, about Robert Mueller’s report and impeachment Tuesday evening. Pelosi has been opposing Democrats’ calls for impeachment proceedings against the sitting US President Donald Trump and, while defending her position, Speaker reportedly said she wanted to see Trump “in prison.”
According to people with knowledge of the matter, Pelosi wants Trump to be accountable for his actions and face criminal charges when he leaves the office.
“I don’t want to see him [Trump] impeached, I want to see him in prison,” said Pelosi.
A spokeswoman for the House Speaker Ashley Etienne told the reporters that the meeting was productive and “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.”
