As Speaker Nancy Pelosi made recent comments regarding whether or not Democrats should pursue the impeachment of President Donald Trump, she made another statement that has many baffled.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told key Democrats that she wants to see Trump imprisoned. The Speaker made this statement as she addressed a dispute with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler in a meeting about whether to move forward with impeachment proceedings.

Pelosi has begun to oversee Democratic committee leaders "embroiled in a behind-the-scenes turf battle" over "ownership of the Democrats' sprawling investigation into Trump," Politico reports.

The Democrats disagree within party lines

The Democrat party members disagree on many things.

However, impeachment of the president is only opposed by moderates who say that impeachment won't be good for the party during the 2020 election cycle.

After the Republicans pushed impeachment votes with former President Bill Clinton, the party lost a lot of political ground in the next election. Pelosi is warning Democrats about as they roll into 2020.

"I don't want to see him impeached," Pelosi said.

"However, I do want to see him in prison," Pelosi added. Moreover, Pelosi rejects Nadler's request to let his team begin an impeachment vote.

The moderate Democrats are in opposition that they should proceed with impeachment. However, many of the freshmen Democrats are for impeachment. According to a Pew Research study, while moderate Democrats stay centered, the rest of the party is going far left.

The study also highlights how far the Republicans and Democrats parties are growing apart. Since 2004, the parties started floating further and further away from the center. The divide accelerated when Trump won the election into the Oval Office in 2016.

House Democrats don’t plan to proceed without Pelosi's blessing

Pelosi rejecting the impeachment proceedings has caused outrage and confusion among many of the same Democrats that voted to appoint her as Speaker of the House. However, it does seem as though Pelosi's objections have held a lot of clouts.

House Democrats do not have immediate plans to hold impeachment proceedings, The Washington Post, reports.

Officials are questioning Pelosi’s leadership but respect her decisions.

Pelosi’s statements come amid reports that many Democrats believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn't recommend charging President Trump. They say it is because of a rule by The DOJ that says, "the law can't indict a sitting president."

In his report, Robert Mueller said that there wasn’t enough evidence to support collusion between Russia and President Trump. He also noted that the evidence of obstruction was feeble.

However, in his recent news conference, he said: “if I believed Trump didn’t obstruct justice, I would have said so.” This put question back in the minds of Congress. Despite Mueller saying he wouldn’t testify before Congress, many on the right and the left are calling for Congress to subpoena Mueller to clarify his statements.

Most American voters feel that if Mueller were to testify, that would clarify the whole case—one way or the other. If the president committed a crime, let’s be clear on what crime he committed.
