Pelosi: GOP House might impeach Clinton
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi suggested Wednesday that a GOP-led Congress could move to impeach Hillary Clinton if she is elected president, as they did to Bill Clinton in 1998.
Pelosi, D-Calif., said Republicans have hinted as much this election cycle by advocating for “checks and balances” in a divided government, which she said is a “code word for obstruction or something worse.”
Pelosi pointed to the GOP making a similar argument in 1996 when GOP presidential nominee Robert Dole appeared headed for defeat.
“When it became apparent he was not going to win, the Republicans started talking about checks and balances,” Pelosi said, recalling the Dole-Clinton race. “And you know what that translated into? Impeachment of the president of the United States.” – READ MORE
