For weeks, even as the pitchfork brigade on social media has been targeting Nancy Pelosi because she hasn’t yet waved the impeachment magic wand in Donald Trump’s direction, Palmer Report has been pointing out that she obviously has something bigger up her sleeve. Now Pelosi is essentially acknowledging this to House Democrats, and while she isn’t revealing the specifics of her plan, it appears to involve prison. How do we know this? Because Pelosi just used the word “prison.” No, really.

Nancy Pelosi said this to House Democrats during a private meeting on Tuesday night: “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.” This quote has since leaked to Politico, which means she really said it. Anyone who’s read the Constitution knows that Congress can’t unilaterally put the president in prison. So what’s Pelosi getting at here?


Let’s start with what’s already known. The Mueller report makes fairly clear that once Donald Trump is no longer in office, he’ll be indicted at the federal level for obstruction of justice. He’ll be put on trial for it, he’ll almost surely be convicted, and he’ll go to prison. The feds at the SDNY have also made clear that they’ll indict Trump for felony campaign finance violations. Even if this all somehow gets derailed, New York State has made clear that it’ll pounce on Trump the minute he’s no longer in office. The question is when that’s going to happen.



If Trump wins reelection, with the way he’s dismantling our democracy, there may not be much of a United States by the time his second term ends. In the far more likely scenario where Trump loses in 2020 (he’s currently losing in every poll to every viable candidate), he’ll be indicted and arrested in January 2021. If he’s ousted before then, he’ll go to prison before then.




It’s worth pointing out that if House Democrats begin the impeachment process against Donald Trump right now, the chances of the Republican Senate ultimately removing him are zero. But if House Democrats continue building the case against Trump, and continue driving up pro-impeachment poll numbers as they’ve been doing for the past month, and then they move forward with impeachment, GOP Senators may start to feel like they selfishly have to remove Trump in order to protect their own odds of reelection.


In any case, it’s a big deal that Nancy Pelosi – who sometimes chooses her words cryptically but always chooses her words carefully – is now talking about Donald Trump going to prison. It validates that prison really is on the table for Trump, and it reveals that Pelosi’s plan involves him ending up there. We told you she’s aiming for something more consequential than mere symbolic impeachment hearings that won’t result in his removal. Next week’s big House hearings about Trump’s criminal scandals should help shed a bit more light on precisely what she’s planning.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: The real reason House Democrats have turned down Donald Trump’s New York State tax returns

Last month the State of New York passed a law which set the stage for Donald Trump’s state tax returns to be released to House Democrats as part of their investigation into his shady finances and foreign entanglements. But as it turns out, House Democrats haven’t been willing to go through the formality required to obtain them. This has set off a panic within the Resistance, and yet another round of “Why aren’t the Democrats doing anything?”

Here’s the thing. There are only two possibilities here. One is that House Democrats are hapless paralyzed idiots who don’t want to win; this is certainly the narrative that’s being pushed by the media at large, as well as the pitchfork brigade on social media. The other possibility is that House Democrats know something that the public and the media don’t. Hint: it’s the latter. In fact it’s not even difficult to logically parse why House Democrats would need to avoid taking New York State up on its offer in order to win the larger battle on Trump’s taxes.


House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal is the one who is refusing to ask New York for Donald Trump’s state tax returns, according to Bloomberg. But this is the same guy who is aggressively pursuing legal action to obtain Trump’s federal tax returns. Does anyone really believe that Neal simply can’t be bothered to take a freebie from New York for no good reason?



It couldn’t be much more obvious that Neal fears taking Trump’s state tax returns could sabotage his legal strategy when it comes to obtaining Trump’s federal tax returns, or that he already has Trump’s state tax returns, or something along those lines. He can’t say that out loud, so he’s floating the same generic platitudes that House Democrats have been floating for the past month when it comes to the legal battles they’ve been pursuing behind the scenes.




For example: even as Donald Trump was fighting House Democrats in court to try to stop Deutsche Bank and Capital One from turning over his financial records, two other major banks – Wells Fargo and TD Bank – were quietly turning over Trump’s financial records. Trump couldn’t stop those two banks, because he didn’t know House Democrats had subpoenaed them. If the Democrats had announced that they were pursuing Trump’s records from Wells Fargo and TD Bank, they wouldn’t have ended up getting those records.


It’s not difficult to figure out that House Democrats have something similar going on when it comes to Donald Trump’s tax returns. Richard Neal is not a dithering idiot who’s looking to lose. The pitchfork brigade has become far too focused on instant gratification – which wouldn’t deliver any instant results anyway – to realize that some investigative battles have to be fought in the dark in order to win them.
