Nancy Pelosi: Jails Will Be “Overcrowded” If We Start Arresting Trump Officials


Nancy Pelosi joked about jailing Trump officials while speaking at a Washington Post Live event today.

COSTA: “How far can you go on that front, Speaker Pelosi? Could you hold the Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin in contempt? Some Democrats have even raised the prospect of arresting the Treasury secretary if he does not comply with congressional demands?”

PELOSI: “Well, let me just say that we — (Applause) — we do have a jail down in the basement of the Capitol. (Laughter) But if we were arresting all of the people in the administration — (Laughter) — we would have overcrowded jail situation, and I’m not for that. But I think again, getting to the committee, Richie Neal, the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, he has a path — again all of this is so low 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.”

This is Alinsky projection at it’s finest.

Excellent plan, Nancy. Arrests predicated on what, exactly? What laws have they broken? Your little coup d’etat failed. And working against your coup is not a crime. The only people who should be in jail are you and everyone who helped with the coup.
