Pelosi tells Dems she wants to see Trump ‘in prison’

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/06/05/pelosi-impeachment-1355435
Quote :
"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.

impeachment would make him unprosecutable?

^ I wonder how that works... impeachment is a political process not a legal one, would it even trigger "double jeopardy" statues if the senate doesn't convict?

Seems like it shouldn't but who knows... also can't they just leave other crimes off the impeachment bill (like the Cohen stuff Trump is involved with) and let those put trump in jail?

theres no indictment by a grand jury, it's not a criminal trial, double jeapordy doesn't apply

surely pelosi would know that, i'm hoping that's not the point she meant to make

"Also, it feels like Pelosi should think through the incentives created when you say “We will try to jail you, but as long as you’re president, we’ll leave you alone” "

the parallels between this and the "we don't need to escalate the supreme court obstruction because hillary will be elected soon and it will go away" line of thinking are too scary
