Response to bottomofthehill (Reply #13)

14. From the Washington post 5/9/19

Take a look at the headline and an excerpt from the article

Pelosi joked about a jail in the Capitol’s basement. Is there a House slammer?

A spokesman for the speaker told The Post on Thursday that, if ever it came down to arresting people, Congress could detain them in one of the rooms controlled by the House sergeant at arms. An email to the office of the sergeant at arms was not immediately returned Thursday.

Or, the Pelosi spokesman said, they could be thrown in the lockup at Capitol Police headquarters, at 119 D St. in Northeast Washington. “We can fit a maximum of two people,” said a sergeant who picked up the phone at the Capitol Police office and who declined to be identified.
