If Hillary Wins, The GOP Has Plans to Impeach Her The Moment She Takes Office
Hillary Clinton is more than likely going to be the Democratic nominee for President. Bernie Sanders is making a solid push to oust her from her throne, but it's an undeniable fact that she could become the next President of the United States.
However, if Hillary does make it to the White House, she'll be facing a call for impeachment from her first day on the job. Alabama representative Mo Brooks has said that he will be issuing an impeachment order if Hillary gets the vote based on her illegal use of a private email server.
Brooks's reasoning is fairly sound. Because Hillary conducted classified business on a private email server and potentially allowed state secrets to fall into enemy hands, she effectively placed the lives of an uncountable number of United States citizens at risk.
"The day she's sworn in is the day that she's subject to impeachment because she has committed high crimes and misdemeanors," Brooks said.
Brooks's move for impeachment based on Hillary's server isn't completely without precedent, however. Though he wasn't serving as President, General David Petraeus was under serious fire based on his sharing classified information with his biographer.
If Petraeus came under such strong opposition that he was forced to resign from his position as director of the CIA, why should Hillary be allowed to serve as President?
Though many in the U.S. are tired of hearing about Hillary's ridiculous email server, the fact remains that she violated protocol and potentially violated the law by disseminating classified information from a non-secure source.
Those allegations, in conjunction with the fact that the email server scandal is also undergoing investigation by the FBI, points to a serious wrongdoing by Clinton.
If Hillary expects to simply waltz into the White House without opposition, she's on the wrong planet. Thanks to Rep. Mo Brooks, she will have to face the consequences--even on day 1.
