Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, also a two-time presidential hopeful, took to Twitter to weigh in on the impeachment of President Trump. Clinton is notorious for claiming she won the 2016 general election, and has remained a vocal critic of President Trump throughout his three years in office, since his upset victory in 2016.
It was only a matter of time before Clinton gave her opinion on impeachment, the opinion no one actually asked for.
The rules Sen. McConnell has proposed for the president's impeachment trial are the equivalent of a head juror colluding with the defendant to cover up a crime.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) January 21, 2020
Call your senators and urge them to push for witnesses and evidence, not a cover-up: https://t.co/CZcWI5zjm5
Clinton jumps on the bandwagon of Democrats both inside and outside of the establishment, claiming that Senate Majority Leader McConnell is rigging the impeachment trial in favor of President Trump. In all of her tone-deafness, Clinton seems to forget that Leader McConnell set up the impeachment trial framework to mirror that of her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in 1999.
Aside from the trial being a duplicate of former President Clinton’s 1999 impeachment trial, for Hillary to accuse Leader McConnell of covering up for the president is the height of hypocrisy. Clinton is notorious for covering up her husband’s misconduct, both sexual and otherwise. Clinton has consistently spoken out against, and intimidated behind closed doors, women who have accused her husband of misconduct.
The former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate has virtually no leverage or political capital to give a credible opinion on impeachment, but Clinton has continued to be vocally critical of President Trump since losing the White House in 2016, in an attempt to maintain relevance in the political arena.
