A lawyer for Donald Trump said the current impeachment drive is a partisan effort that could backfire on Democrats if they lose leverage, suggesting Hillary Clinton could also be impeached.
Responding to a question from Senator Marco Rubio during Friday’s impeachment hearing, Trump attorney Michael van der Veen argued that the Obama-era secretary could face similar impeachment proceedings sometime in the future. “Is it not true that under this new precedent, a future House – facing partisan pressure to ‘lock her up’ – could impeach a former secretary of state, and a future Senate be forced to put her on trial and potentially disqualify her from any future office?” Rubio asked.
Hillary continued challenging the integrity of the elections through as late as the fall of 2020 and called on Biden not to concede if he lost.
