During a back and forth with Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) Tuesday night, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pushed back against his request to start an impeachment inquiry, exclaiming: “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”

According to Politico, Pelosi meant that she wanted Trump defeated in 2020, then prosecuted for his many alleged crimes.

There are varying levels of dissent among the Democratic heavy hitters. House Intel Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Ways and Means chairman Richard Neal (D-MA), for example, believe that an inquiry should not be begun until the caucus is fully united behind the idea of impeachment.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
