Transcript for Pelosi reportedly says she wants to see Trump prosecuted
House speaker Nancy Pelosi was also in in normandy with president trump. A rare moment of national unity but just before she left behind closed doors with congressional Democrats her harshest words yet for the president as she holds the line against impeachment. Want to bring in Mary Bruce and this debate inside the democratic caucus increasingly dramatic. Reporter: George, things are getting heated up here. In that meeting Pelosi reportedly said she didn't want to see the president impeached. She wants to see him in prison. The speaker here is under increasing pressure to impeach and clashing with Democrats over what should come next but instead of rushing to impeachment, the speaker argues the Democrats should instead be aggressively egg having the president and argues that the best way to beat trump is actually at the ballot box and then he could be prosecuted for any possible crimes but this is not going away and the speaker isn't ruling out impeachment, still leaving that on the table. Under a lot of pressure to get that done as well, meantime, counting down to the deadline to impose tariffs on Mexico that hits Monday. Negotiating with the Mexicans but netting mixed signals about how it's going. Reporter: The president has tweeted that progress is being made but he says not nearly enough and that is why today the U.S. And Mexican officials will be sitting down here in Washington again to try and come up with a solution that can somehow satisfy the president's demand that Mexico stop the surge of migrants from coming across the border. If they can't the president tweeted from abroad if no agreement is reached those tariffs will begin on Monday. Now, Republicans that I have talked with are still holding out hope here it doesn't come to that. The president's own party, of course, is staunchly opposed to these tariffs. Republicans say they will amount to a massive new tax increase on Americans, George. Mary Bruce, thanks very much.
