Hilary Clinton says if Republicans don’t vote for impeachment they are affirming that Trump is ‘above the law’



Hillary Clinton claimed Republicans would affirm that President Trump is “above the law” if they do not vote to impeach.

Clinton chastised Republicans and questioned if they would use their power to check Trump’s “impeachable offenses” and remove him from office. She took to Twitter to claim the only question remaining in impeachment is whether Republicans will protect Trump, not whether he committed acts deemed impeachable by the Constitution.

“The question is not whether Trump has committed impeachable crimes. He has,” Clinton tweeted. “The question is whether Republicans in Congress will affirm that an American president is not above the law.”

She also took an impeachment victory lap by retweeting a post that said, “Do y’all ever sit back and think about how much [Hillary Clinton] was actually right about?” She added the caption, “Occasionally.”

Although Clinton may believe there is no question on impeachment, most Republicans disagree. Republican Rep. Will Hurd of Texas, who has been a Trump critic, called Trump’s actions “misguided” but not “impeachable.”

“An impeachable offense should be compelling, overwhelmingly clear, and unambiguous, and it’s not something to be rushed or taken lightly,” Hurd explained during Thursday’s hearing. “I have not heard evidence proving the president committed bribery or extortion.”

Clinton, 72, was accused of being “above the law” herself because she used a private email server, putting classified State Department documents at risk. The decision haunted her presidential campaign. In July 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey announced that he would not recommend charging anyone in relation to Clinton’s email server, despite calling her private email use “extremely careless.” But he reversed that decision less than two weeks before the 2016 election and announced that the investigation into Clinton had been reopened.

Comey’s last-minute investigation announcement was highly criticized after Clinton’s defeat in 2016. She lost the election by 77 electoral votes. However, many believe her failure to campaign in swing states like Michigan and Wisconsin was what actually cost her the election. And of course, there are many critics that thought Comey let Hilary Clinton get away crimes that should have seen her behind bars.
