"I don't want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison," Pelosi said . . .

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.

12. They can either do both or neither. The scenario Pelosi described

Does not exist in reality (where he goes to jail without being impeached) unless her plan is to allow this man she feels should be in jail to run the country for at least another 18 months first. That statement (if accurate) is the equivalent of saying “I hate him more than you do and I’m not willing to do anything about it”

Its the equivalent of saying impeachment may be in the favor of Trump and if the voters have a modicum of intelligence they should understand why by now or they are playing games being slow as pine tar in winter to grasp the concept here.
I want to see him in prison, but apparently many here want to help him escape accountability by immediately impeaching and allowing Trump to be acquitted or pardoned.

This isn’t rocket science and it would be immoral to impeach and allow him to getaway with this scott free.

15. If impeachment fails, it doesn't give him immunity from prosecution after he leaves office.

If she believes he should be in jail, and they have enough evidence, doesn't she have a responsibility to make the case? If we have the evidence, make the republican representatives vote against charges and the senators vote to "acquit" a man when we can make the case that he committed serious crimes.

20. To not impeach Trump, increases the likelihood that Trump will be

re-elected in 2020.

I would go so far to project that Trump is likely to win re-election in 2020 if not impeached.

Not impeaching Trump is likely to cause a chasm and lower voter turn out within the Democratic party.

Agree about that bottomless pit thing ….

Donny also admitted that it would be easier for Democrats to get subpoenas honored under an impeachment inquiry, especially the grand jury testimony. I doubt that Democrats ever see the grand jury information under regular hearings.

11. Not impeaching Trump is a huge mistake.

Setting aside for a moment that an impeachment inquiry is the right thing to do and the House's Constitutional duty under these circumstances, even if you are looking at it from a purely political strategy calculation, not impeaching will hurt Democrats and help Trump. Impeachment will not help Trump, it will showcase his crimes like it did with Richard Nixon. That will damage Trump, like it did Nixon:

Richard Nixon’s approval rating was at 65 percent when his impeachment process began and only 19 percent of the public supported his impeachment. By the end, the numbers had flipped: his approval was 24 percent and support for impeachment was 57 percent.

67. She made that as an offhand statement in weekly check-in meeting, it's not a policy statement

 


Pelosi (D-Calif.) told five of her committee chairmen Tuesday night during their weekly check-in about the status of investigations that she would rather see Trump defeated in 2020 and facing charges of a crime after leaving office — than impeached and acquitted by the Republican-led Senate.

“I don’t want to see him impeached. I want to see him in prison,” Pelosi said, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share private conversations.

"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 spokeswoman, Ashley Etienne, said in a statement Wednesday.

Don't impeach. Hope he doesn't get re-selected in the upcoming election. If he wins, just wait 4 more years to throw him in prison after the statute of limitations run out. Or he dies from hamburders. Or fucks up the country and world beyond any hope of repair.

32. If Trump gets re-elected

 

that means that Republicans hold the Senate, but it also means we can kiss our democracy goodbye. In the words of former assistant director of counterintelligence for the FBI, Frank Figluzzi, in 5 to 7 years historians may look upon 2019 as the year that Congress gave up its oversight obligations.

If Speaker Pelosi called a 9PM press conference and laid out the grounds for impeachment, it would be powerful and would change the narrative and unite all Democrats.

I keep repeating this because I believe it, Speaker Pelosi was also Speaker in 2010 when Republicans flipped 64 seats and that's why she is putting more emphasis on the politics of impeachment, she doesn't want a repeat of history.

35. "once Donald Trump is no longer in office, he'll be indicted"

 

Per the Palmer Report:

once Donald Trump is no longer in office, he’ll be indicted at the federal level for obstruction of justice. He’ll be put on trial for it, he’ll almost surely be convicted, and he’ll go to prison. The feds at the SDNY have also made clear that they’ll indict Trump for felony campaign finance violations. Even if this all somehow gets derailed, New York State has made clear that it’ll pounce on Trump the minute he’s no longer in office. The question is when that’s going to happen.


https://www.palmerreport.com/analysis/nancy-pelosi-prison-plan-trump/18458/

Nancy has a game plan. She knows Trump can be convicted of crimes. To her the endgame is Trump losing in 2020. Everything she does is focused on that.

39. What Nick Akerman said last night on TV - impeachment is coming this year

 

Akerman is one of my favorite analysts. He worked on the Watergate case, and he is very knowledgeable.

He said last night that he thinks the House will start impeachment proceedings against Trump later this year.

He said that the complexity of the case requires people to be better educated on Trump's crimes (which include tax evasion, money laundering, etc) before that step is taken. And that it is happening via the ongoing Judiciary Committee's investigations.

In short: BE PATIENT. All will be revealed.

They have started the impeachment "process" but are not yet calling it "impeachment" --- yet.

It means we're not unthinking robots like the Republicans.

And if you think Dems are divided now, wait to see what happens if they vote to "see if they believe an impeachment inquiry should begin." There aren't enough votes to proceed and if Democrats vote now and defeat a resolution, it would be a disaster.

Pelosi knows that and isn't going to let the "Impeachment NOW or Else" crowd goad her into leading her troops into a sure slaughter.
