On Monday, during President Trump’s rally in New Hampshire. Angry Supporters chanted “lock her up” about Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
The chant broke out as Trump complained about Pelosi’s conduct during his State of the Union address last week.
During the rally, Trump said “I had somebody behind me who was mumbling terribly.” Mocking Speaker Pelosi, he said “Mumbling, very distracting.”
That was when the Manchester supporters launched into chants of “lock her up” as Trump stood, nodding his head.
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.
