For weeks, debate has raged in Washington D.C. over how to best address President Trump and his administration’s refusal to cooperate with Congressional investigations and flagrant disregard for the rule of law in the United States.
While many have been calling on the House to begin impeachment proceedings against the President as soon as possible, Speaker Pelosi and House leadership have resisted and refused to take action until they have an “ironclad” case against the president.
Her reasoning for doing so was made clear last night when news broke that she had privately told Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) that she didn’t want to see Trump impeached, but would rather see him thrown in prison.
Given the litany of crimes and misdeeds that Trump has committed both in and out of office and now that we know Pelosi is driven to put him away for good, her hesitation to pull the trigger is much more understandable and quite commendable.
Unless, of course, you’re a bootlicking Republican who wants to throw a fit at the thought of the law being upheld and criminals facing consequences for their actions.
Rep. Steve Womack (R-AR) took to Twitter this afternoon to complain that Pelosi wanting Trump in prison was somehow “beneath the dignity” of American leadership, shamelessly coming to the defense of a man who has done nothing but make a mockery of his office and piss all over the values that our nation holds dear.
The quote attributed to Speaker Pelosi—if accurate—is beneath the dignity of American leadership.

His words are a sad and disgraceful look at how all the so-called “patriotism” of the right-wing is nothing but partisan fervor dressed up in the flag.
Womack quickly got a well-deserved earful for his trouble on social media:
Have you seen the man you serve in the White House @realDonaldTrump ?Every day he degrades the office of the presidency and is beneath the dignity of the office he inhabits . Your hypocrisy is blinding and your partisan zealotry beneath the dignity of YOUR office.Sit down .

The entire Republican Party is beneath the dignity of American leadership.

The level of shamelessness here is almost impressive, I have to give you that.

I remember "lock her up" like it was yesterday.
Take your hypocrisy elsewhere.
He committed crimes. It's all in black and white in the Mueller report. Read it. Criminals belong in jail.
