The increasingly detached-from-reality Nancy Pelosi suggested she could put Trump officials in prison inside the Congress, if she chose to “arrest” them, saying her “little jail” would become “overcrowded.”
Wednesday during a Washington Post Live interview, the Speaker of the House (D-CA) said Congress has a little jail cell when asked what they can do to if members of the Trump administration does not comply with congressional demands.
Reporter Robert Costa asked, “How far can you go to on that front, Speaker Pelosi? Could you hold the Secretary of Treasury, Stephen Mnuchin, in contempt? Some Democrats have even raised the prospect of arresting the Treasury Secretary if he does not comply with congressional demands?
Pelosi said, “Well, let me just say, we do have a little jail down in the basement of the Capitol. But if we were arresting all of the people in the administration, we would have overcrowded jail situation, and I’m not for that. But I think that the–again, getting to the Committee, Richie Neal is the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, he has a path that very–again, all of this is so raw and precedent-based, to do the right thing as we go forward, and there are several options. One of them is to go directly to court.
Yesterday, Pelosi bizarrely said that Democrats “cannot accept” a second term for President Trump, not stating what they might attempt if that in fact occurred.
