Speaker Pelosi: Jails Will Be Overcrowded if We Start Arresting Trump Officials (VIDEO)
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Wednesday joked about jailing Trump officials while speaking at a Washington Post Live event.
WaPo reporter Robert Costa asked Pelosi if she could hold Mnuchin in contempt for refusing to hand over Trump’s tax returns.
The Democrats have been gunning for Trump’s taxes so they can selectively leak information to damage the president.
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Monday formally rejected the Dems’ request for Trump’s tax returns, so someone leaked Trump’s tax docs to the New York Times anyway.
Now far-left reporters are asking if Mnuchin should be jailed for following the law — this is where we are in this country now.
“How far could 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,” Robert Costa said.
“We do have a little jail down in the basement of the Capitol,” Pelosi said to audience laughter.
“But if we were arresting all of the people in the administration, we would have overcrowded jail situation and I’m not for that,” Pelosi said.
Currently there is no law requiring a US president/presidential candidate release their tax returns, but the Democrats don’t care about laws — they want to harass President Trump.
Why won’t Nancy “Crumbs” Pelosi release her tax returns so Americans can see how she became one of the wealthiest members of Congress on a meager salary — Pelosi and her husband have a combined net worth of over $100 million.
