House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she would like to see President Trump “in prison” while trying to rebuff Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler’s request to open an impeachment inquiry.

“I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,” Pelosi said, according to Politico.

The comment was made during a meeting in which Nadler and fellow top Democrats once again urged Pelosi to consider opening an impeachment inquiry. Pelosi, however, maintained her longstanding preference for Trump’s defeat at the ballot box in 2020 and his eventual incarceration.

Pelosi’s spokeswoman Ashley Etienne told Politico Nadler and the speaker “had a productive meeting about the state of play with the 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.”
