Watchdog Group Calls For Impeachment Of Hillary Clinton

Even though Hillary Clinton is no longer secretary of state, she could still face impeachment for her actions while holding the office, according to Judicial Watch.

“One of the dirty little secrets in Washington is that Mrs. Clinton can be impeached now,” Tom Fitton, the conservative organization’s president, told the Daily Mail. “A federal official leaving office does not end congressional jurisdiction over impeachment for misconduct in that office, and if she was convicted by the Senate the sanction could be ineligibility for future office.”

Fitton is not alone in suggesting that officials could take action against the Democratic presidential nominee. The Republican chairman of a House committee has requested an FBI investigation of whether Clinton was guilty of perjury when she testified to a congressional panel about the 2012 attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.

Fitton urged federal officials to “talk about proactively using the contempt power more directly, not relying on the Justice Department to put people in contempt to enforce contempt powers on their own, and to use impeachment a whole lot more.”

However, according to the Daily Mail, congressional Republicans are wary of the impeachment process because of what happened with Bill Clinton. The former president was impeached, but he avoided criminal charges and completed his second term in office.
