Impeach Trump? No, Pelosi Says Let's Just 'Put Him in Prison'

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler told reporters that he could ultimately pursue a formal impeachment inquiry against Trump, a move that progressive Democrats and outside groups have increasingly sought since the release of a redacted version of U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report in April.

Pelosi is walking an increasingly thin line as the clamor for impeachment grows in her caucus, despite her insistence that before impeachment there needs to be broad public support and bipartisan backing, neither of which has materialized.

Trump continued: "But Nancy Pelosi-I call her Nervous Nancy-Nancy Pelosi doesn't talk about it. Nancy Pelosi's a disaster, OK, she's a disaster and let her do what she wants".

In a 400-plus report that he submitted to Attorney General William Barr on March 22, Mueller said he did not find evidence of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Mexican President Obrador urges friendship & dialogue with U.S. under looming tariff threat
It remains unclear exactly what the Trump administration would consider sufficient migration control to not impose the tariffs. Randy Mullett of Mullett Strategies told TT he believes the president is using the tariff threat as a negotiating tactic.

Yet Mueller, in obvious frustration, held a news conference to provide fodder for impeachment, saying he could not vindicate him for interfering in an investigation of a crime that never happened.

A spokeswoman for Pelosi said she and Nadler "had a productive meeting about the state of play with the Mueller report".

Co-anchor Melissa Francis pressed Summers repeatedly on what crime Pelosi believes the president was trying to cover up. On the one hand, she hates Trump and wants to destroy him. Announcing he was ending his tenure, Mueller contradicted his own report to imply that only Justice Department policy prevented him from indicting the president for obstruction of justice, and that Congress would need to pick up where he left off.

In recent weeks, Pelosi accused the president of engaging in "a cover-up", characterized his actions as "villainous to the constitution" and made a joking reference to the 25th amendment - which allows a president to be removed from office if he is deemed unfit to serve. "You know what, I think they're in big trouble".

Helicopter rescue of 74-year-old woman goes wildly wrong
Rescue crews at the landing zone gave the woman medication to treat her nausea and took her to a local trauma center. According to a U.S. news site, a 74-year-old woman was airlifted after suffering a minor injury during a hike.

"Make no mistake: we know exactly what path we're on".

Several House committees have targeted Trump for investigation, and Democrats have been in ongoing conflict with the administration over its refusals to submit documents and testimony. Yes, we all know about Biden and his white working-class roots etc., but that an impeachment fight will nuke that outreach effort. "Nancy will have the largest single voice in it".

Pelosi conceded that "that may take more time than some people want it to take", and said, "There is great grief and sadness and pain in our country about the behavior of this President of the United States".

The heated debate - and the divisions it's causing - was evident as 14 of the 23 presidential hopefuls addressed a California Democratic Party convention in San Francisco last weekend.
