Republican Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama has expressed his strong interest in impeaching Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton even though the election is more than one year away (video below).
During a recent interview with Matt Murphy on radio station WAPI, Brooks pointed to Clinton's private email while she was U.S. Secretary of State, reports Mediaite.com.
It's not about emails, it's about national security and how many lives she put at risk by violating all rules of law that are designed to protect America’s top-secret and classified information from falling into the hands of our geopolitical foes who then might use that information to result in the deaths of Americans.
It's a national security issue, and in my judgment, with respect to Hillary Clinton, she will be an unique president if she is elected by the public next November because the day she’s sworn in is the day that she’s subject to impeachment for high crimes and misdemeanors.
However, Brooks didn't say why Clinton had not already been charged with crimes if she had indeed broken "all rules of law that are designed to protect America’s top-secret and classified information."
For example, former NSA whistle blower Ed Snowden was charged under the Espionage Act for exposing top-secret information to the media, and he has not run for office.
On Feb. 2, Brooks told “The Steve Malzberg Show” that there should be a ruling by a federal court against President Obama's executive orders on immigration, and if Obama refused to comply with the court then Congress should cite him with a contempt citation, noted RightWingWatch.org (video below).
