Republicans are trying to stop Hillary Clinton from being elected as the next president by launching a “late impeachment” effort against the former Sec. of State who is no longer in office.
A PAC called Special Operations Speaks is trying to convince Republican members of Congress to impeach Hillary Clinton:
Special Operations Speaks PAC is calling on the United States Congress to impeach former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for “high crimes and misdemeanors” pursuant to Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution of the United States.
1. As U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton absented herself from the besieged in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, costing four American lives: U.S. Ambassador Christopher J. Stevens, security officers and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, and information officer Sean Smith.
2. As U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton received, through the Clinton Foundation, emoluments from foreign governments, despite Article I, Section 9, which proscribes the reception of foreign “gifts” by U.S. officials without the express consent of Congress.
3. As U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton unlawfully housed her official emails on a private server in violation of the Freedom of Information Act and to the detriment of national security.
The man behind the lunacy called for Republicans to engage in armed rebellion against the United States government, believes slavery could have been prevented if slaves had guns and chaired a “Gun Appreciation Day” that was sponsored by a white nationalist party. He also worked for George W. Bush’s reelection campaign in 2004.
The movement to retroactively impeach Clinton highlights both the Republican desperation to defeat her, and the fact that the crazy that gripped the right during the Obama years is not going to go away when our current president leaves office.
If anything, another presidential election loss will cause the insanity to multiply within the GOP. The movement to impeach Clinton is part of the grassroots environment that Republican presidential candidates must appeal to.
The impeachment stunt isn’t going to work, but if Hillary Clinton wins the 2016 election, expect the Republican crazy to go into overdrive.
