(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – While we’d much prefer prison for the notoriously corrupt former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, it appears that she could now be impeached based on the case that the Democrats are making against former President Donald Trump.
This is just the latest example of how the left is throwing essentially every one of their own under the bus by trying to make the preposterous case that Trump committed impeachable offenses by “inciting” violence on the Capitol Building on January 6th.
In response to a question from Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) during Friday’s impeachment hearing in the Senate, a lawyer for Trump argued that Hillary Clinton could herself be impeached after leaving office as President Trump has been.
“Is it not true that under this new precedent, a future House – facing partisan pressure to ‘lock her up’ – could impeach a former secretary of state, and a future Senate be forced to put her on trial and potentially disqualify her from any future office?” Rubio asked Trump team lawyer Michael van der Veen.
“If you see it their way, yes,” van der Veen replied of the Democratic impeachment managers.
“If you do this the way they want it done, that could happen to the example there – a former secretary of state – but it could happen to a lot of people. And that’s not the way this is supposed to work,” he added.
If Senate Republicans fail to convict Donald Trump, it won't be because the facts were with him or his lawyers mounted a competent defense. It will be because the jury includes his co-conspirators.

Hillary continued challenging the integrity of the elections through as late as the fall of 2020 and called on Biden not to concede if he lost.

In fact, the violence over insurrection Summer according to the Impeachment Managers could be construed as the results of 4 years of denying the legitimacy of the 2016 election by Democrats, based on their arguments.

The House’s lead impeachment manager, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), dismissed this idea as he has naturally long ago given up preserving any sort of façade that he’s applying glaring double-standards his party couldn’t possibly stand up to.
Raskin declared the suggestion that Clinton be impeached has “no bearing on this case,” as Clinton “was not impeached in office for conduct while in office.”
He did not delve into the “conduct” Clinton committed “in office” as Democrats routinely pretend that she never did a darn thing as she sold out our nation to Iran and Russia, covered up for the Benghazi terror attack, conducted a pay-for-play scheme through her charitable organization, and kept classified emails on private server.
While in office.
Infowars also notes that “At Friday’s hearing, the Trump lawyer also argued that the ex-president’s statements leading up to the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill – which he is accused of ‘inciting’ as the basis of the impeachment effort – were ‘virtually indistinguishable” from rhetoric used by American politicians for ‘hundreds of years.’”
