The spokesperson did not directly address whether Pelosi made the remark about Trump that was attributed to her.
"I don't want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison", Pelosi said, according to the paper. Their enthusiasm to go after President Trump creates pressure for Democrats in neighboring districts who have to explain why they don't support impeachment. But it's far from clear the party broadly supports moving to impeachment in the first place, for now.
Kevin McCullough and Rick Ungar weighs in on some Democrats push for the impeachment of President Trump.
Other attendees at the meeting included House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D., Md.), Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D., Mass.), and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D., N.Y.). Other former Trump aides could also face contempt citations.
Pelosi also accused the president of treating Mexico as an enemy in regard to his proposed trade tariffs on the country.
Pelosi noted that 100 percent of voting House Democrats had supported the measure, saying, "It was not without its challenges, so I congratulate them all for that". If the House wants to impeach, it can do so on its own, regardless of whether people respond to subpoenas. Did you ever get that feeling that you're just in the bubble here.

60 dead in crackdown on Sudan protesters - doctors
In Omdurman, just across the Nile from Khartoum, security forces were seen patrolling in machine-gun mounted trucks. But on Monday, security forces swept in and opened fire on unarmed protesters in the square.
Pelosi flatly dismissed critics and pundits who have questioned whether she has the stomach to pursue impeachment. He then paused for several seconds when asked if he and Pelosi were "on the same page".
"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", Nadler said. "Certainly, Nancy will have the largest single voice in it, (and) various committee chairs and rank-and-file members".
Despite all that, she apparently remains the biggest obstacle to impeachment.
Nadler refused to say whether he and Pelosi agreed on impeachment during an appearance on CNN on Wednesday. "We know exactly what actions we need to take", Pelosi told reporters earlier Wednesday, hitting her palm on the podium for emphasis. "And while that may take some more time than some people want it to take, I respect their impatience", she said. According to Politico, now that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report is out in the open, the speaker's preferred path is "to see Trump defeated at the ballot box and then prosecuted for his alleged crimes". The Judiciary Committee has already voted along party lines to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt over gaining access to the full report and its underlying materials, and the full House is slated to vote on that next Tuesday. And polls continue to show democratic voters agree.
But for a growing number of Democrats, including several members of the Judiciary Committee, opening impeachment proceedings is the only recourse. Back in March, before Mueller conclusively debunked the Democrats' accusations of Trump conspiring with Russian Federation, she said Trump was "not worth" impeaching and joked that Trump has been a "great organizer" and "great fundraiser" for Democrats.
When Mr. Mueller gave his short farewell, he emphasized his view that this issue - whether Mr. Trump's obstruction of justice warrants impeachment - is squarely before the House. And choosing prison over impeachment actually might backfire.
