House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is already trying to head off presidential impeachment should Hillary Clinton win the White House.
In response to comments from congressional Republicans that, should Clinton win, they would restrain her through the Constitution’s “checks and balances,” Pelosi claimed those were super-secret code words for impeachment.
You can’t blame her for not recognizing language from the Constitution.
But while Congress should use every constitutional means to shut down a Clinton White House, she has committed documented impeachable offenses, such as mishandling classified information and conspiring to destroy evidence to obstruct justice.
She also appears to have lied under oath in her testimony in a deposition to Judicial Watch and the House Select Committee on Benghazi. She also appears to have lied in her testimony to the FBI. While she was not under oath, it is still a federal crime to lie to the FBI in any interview setting.
Will Congress do its constitutional duty to appoint a special prosecutor, gather evidence, and then proceed to impeachment and removal from office?
