EXCLUSIVE: Hillary Clinton tweets statement on Trump impeachment

Former Secretary of State and former 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton posted a statement on Twitter Thursday, one day after House Democrats voted to impeach President Trump.

Clinton had taunted Trump Wednesday morning, prior to the vote, writing, “One of our most precious rights as Americans is the right to determine who our leaders are. The president abused his powers to cheat in the next election and rob us of that right. Then he obstructed Congress to cover it up. Impeachment is the only remedy.”

Thursday, she rejoiced in the impeachment of the president who defeated her in the 2016 election, tweeting, “The president has abused his power—using his office to further not the nation’s objectives but his own personal, political objectives—and, together, we are holding him accountable. Feel proud. Keep going.”

Clinton’s own husband, former president Bill Clinton, was also impeached by the House on October 8, 1998, for “high crimes and misdemeanors,” relating to sexual harassment charges and an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

The Senate did not remove Bill Clinton from office, however. Hillary Clinton’s “keep going” remark in her tweet appears to be in reference to the next step – a trial in the Senate for Trump.

DMLNewsApp founder Dennis Michael Lynch responded to Trump’s impeachment Wednesday evening, tweeting, “Trump vowed to MakeAmerica GreatAgain, but to do such a thing requires deporting all “Obama Democrats” to Russia. Trump is not perfect but he is a strong President. He doesn’t deserve impeachment. He &we deserve better. This vote only makes him & his supporters stronger! #MAGA”

DML also voiced his outrage in a Facebook Live Wednesday night, and counted off all the great achievements of Trump’s presidency so far. WATCH BELOW:
