"Do or Do not. There is no try."

“Satisfying The ‘Most Intense, Extreme Part’ Of The Republican Party”: Many GOP Voters On Board With Impeaching Hillary Clinton

It was just two weeks ago that Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) raised the prospect of impeaching Hillary Clinton, even though she hasn’t been elected. The far-right congressman is apparently so concerned about her email server management that he believes she would, literally on her inauguration day, be “subject to impeachment because she has committed high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Soon after, the Alabama Republican talked to MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki about his intentions, and Brooks seemed quite sincere about impeaching Clinton, despite the fact that she hasn’t, in reality, even been accused of breaking any laws.

And while this is obviously just one unhappy congressman, Public Policy Polling asked North Carolina Republicans for their thoughts on the matter.

 If Hillary Clinton is elected President, would you support or oppose impeaching her the day she takes office?

 * Support impeaching Hillary Clinton the day she takes office: 66%

 * Oppose impeaching Hillary Clinton the day she takes office: 24%

 * Not sure: 10%

Obviously, the only fair conclusion is that one-third of the GOP voters in North Carolina are Republicans In Name Only.

For her part, Clinton has apparently heard about the impeachment idea. When she sat down with Rachel late last week, and the subject came up, the former Secretary of State said, “Isn’t that pathetic? It’s just laughable, it’s so totally ridiculous.”

Clinton added the rhetoric is likely intended to satisfy “the most intense, extreme part” of the Republican base.

If the PPP survey is correct, it may very well be working.

  2. The dilemma is most of the base do not know that the Benghazi partisan efforts were a disaster. They just know the accusation and that is all that matters.

  3. With people like that, this country’s future is questionable.
