This Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joked about jailing Trump officials while speaking at a Washington Post Live event.

Robert Costa, WaPo reporter, asked Nancy Pelosi if she could hold Mnuchin in contempt after he refused to hand over President Trump’s tax returns.

The Dems have been gunning for President Trump’s taxes so they can selectively leak information to damage his reputation.

On Monday, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin formally rejected the Democrats request for President Trump’s tax returns, yet someone leaked the President’s tax documents to the New York Times anyway.

Now many far-left reporters are asking if Steve Mnuchin should be imprisoned for following the law — this is where we are as a country now.

“How far could you go on that front, Speaker Pelosi? Could you hold the Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin in contempt? “Robert Costa asked.

Some Democrats have even raised the prospect of arresting the Treasury Secretary if he does not comply with congressional demands,” he said.

“We do have a little jail down in the basement of the Capitol,” Nancy Pelosi said to the audience in laughter.

“But if we were arresting all of the people in the administration, we would have overcrowded jail situation and I’m not for that,” she continued.

Currently there is no law the dictates a US president/presidential candidate must release their tax returns, but the Dems don’t really care about laws — they just want to harass the President.

Since we are on the subject, why won’t Nancy Pelosi release her tax returns so Americans can see how she became one of the wealthiest members of Congress on a meager salary.

Nancy Pelosi and her husband have a combined net worth of more than $100 million.
