Pelosi Goes All ‘Lock Him Up’ on Trump

Pelosi Goes All ‘Lock Him Up’ on Trump

An increasingly unhinged Nancy Pelosi, has seemed to pick up on the chants of “lock her up,” (leveled at Hillary Clinton) and spinning it to “lock HIM up” referring to President Trump.

It is being widely reported that during a closed door meeting with Democrats this week. The House speaker told top committee chairmen, “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”

But, rather than the familiar rallying cry thrown at HRC during the 2016 campaign, what most pundits are reading into Pelosi’s statement is her long-term strategy. They are suggesting that what she means by those words, is that instead of committing what she knows will be political suicide with an impeachment now, is a hope that Trump will be indicted on criminal charges when he is no longer a “sitting President.”

Of course, there is one big assumption in that strategy, and that is that Donald J. Trump fails to win re-election in 2020. If the president wins a second term — as he most likely will – then there is no way he could be indicted, because the statute of limitations on charges of obstruction of justice would run out, before he completes his second term.

Pelosi Has Made Similar Statements Before

Several House Democratic sources told Fox News that Pelosi has said similar things about Trump in past caucus meetings, such as “we should go down there and arrest the man.” The sources said Pelosi is trying to put any action off until after the election, making the case that Democrats should defeat Trump in 2020 — and then seek prosecution after he leaves office.

This time, Pelosi reportedly made the “prison” statement in a meeting with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.; House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.; House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md.; and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass.

In doing so, she dramatically raised the stakes in the battle between the White House and Congress over the president’s conduct, taking Washington’s already-overheated partisan discord into new territory. And the call presented a talking point that could soon make its way to the 2020 presidential campaign trail, where many candidates support impeachment. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., hinted Wednesday at going a step further when she said on MSNBC that “no one is above the law” and if Trump were any other person he’d be “carried out in handcuffs.”

When asked about Pelosi’s statement, her spokeswoman, Ashley Etienne said the speaker had a “productive meeting about the state of play with [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller report. 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.”

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, expressed disbelief over Pelosi’s reported “prison” comments.

“She didn’t say that!” Grassley said when asked about Pelosi’s remarks. He then added, “To go to prison you’ve got to violate a law. What law did he violate?”

A spokesperson from the National Republican Congressional Committee also blasted the comments in a statement.

“What more did you expect from the socialist Democrats?” the NRCC spokesperson said. “After all, they wanted to get rid of President Trump since the day after he was elected.”

    Pres. Trump isn’t kicking the can down the road like the dems want. Our country is better, stronger, and more solid than any dem could make it. That hurts their widdle feelings that they need a safe place, coloring book and puppy.
