Politico is reporting that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told senior Democrats that she’d like to see President Trump in prison. The media company also said Pelosi clashed with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, who was pushing to start impeachment proceedings. The meeting took place late Tuesday night and Politico is citing multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting. Nadler had asked Pelosi for the second time to let him start the effort to impeach Trump. Pelosi responded, “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”
So, how much longer until impeachment proceedings begin? And is it smart for the Democrats to go this route with the 2020 election a year and a half away?
