On Sunday, President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats, comparing them to Sen. Joe McCarthy’s infamous smear campaigns in the 1950s.

“Pelosi said @realDonaldTrump should go to prison,” Giuliani tweeted. “But she said nothing about a trial or a jury or a presumption of innocence. Is this worse than Joe McCarthy? They are destroying any adherence to our constitution. And the Fake News failure to hold them accountable is corrupt.”

“I don’t want to see him impeached; I want to see him in prison,” Pelosi said, referring to Trump last week in a meeting with other Dems, according to sources and reported by Politico.

“Nervous Nancy Pelosi is a disgrace to herself and her family for having made such a disgusting statement, especially since I was with foreign leaders overseas,” the President himself tweeted in response to Pelosi’s reported comment.

Sen. Joe McCarthy roiled the nation during the 1950s publicly charging various celebrities, government officials, and politicians of being communist or homosexual.

The impeachment issue is the subject of an increasingly volatile, public debate being waged in the party of the left, with impeachment proceedings being pushed hard by the most radical, and a more cautious approach being favored by others.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler is among the leaders of the movement to impeach now, and it was a confrontation between Pelosi and Nadler in the aforementioned meeting which prompted Pelosi’s comment, according to the Politico story.

Following that meeting, Nadler was asked in a CNN interview on the possibility of impeachment if he and Pelosi were “on the same page.” He hesitated before answering, “When that decision has to be made, it will be made not by any one individual, it will be made probably by the caucus as a whole. Certainly, Nancy will have the largest single voice in it.”

On Fox News Sunday, Democrat Rep. David Cicilline, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said that he had no problem with Pelosi’s comment. “Look, I don’t have any difficulty with those words. I think what is really at stake here is the responsibility of the Judiciary Committee to conduct oversight to demonstrate to the American people that no one is above the law, including the President of the United States.”

Giuliani’s charge that the fake news is corrupt and in bed with the left was clearly demonstrated in a CNN interview of Rep. Jim Himes when Wold Blitzer asked the congressman three times to join with Nancy Pelosi in calling for the President to be locked up.
