House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly said she doesn’t want to see President Donald Trump impeached, she wants to see him in prison.

NBC News, citing Politico, reports Pelosi made the offhand comment at a meeting with several House committee leaders. However, the context or tone of the comment is unclear.

NBC also reports Pelosi has also said impeachment is not "off the table."

Pelosi says she's following a step-by-step path of investigations that's in line with public sentiment, and most of the House Democratic caucus is not crossing her on that point.
