Hillary, revitalized by Mueller's 'obstruction' theories, hypes 'roadmap' to impeachment
"I think there is enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted," Clinton told an audience at the Time 100 summit, insisting the Mueller report, despite its failure to substantiate the criminal accusations leveled against the president, was merely "the end of the beginning" of what could be a beautiful impeachment – if Congress plays its cards right.
“I think there is enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted.” @HillaryClinton on whether Donald Trump obstructed justice or not at the #TIME100 Summit https://t.co/LesjLJH44jpic.twitter.com/rRg2MnEmA9— TIME (@TIME) April 23, 2019
"The whole matter of obstruction was very directly sent to the Congress," she said, blaming a "rule in the Justice Department that you can't indict a sitting president" for the investigation's failure to deliver Donald Trump's head on a plate.
"As I read it, basically what I thought it was saying is: look, we think he obstructed justice, here are 11 examples of why we think he obstructed justice, but we're under the control of the Justice Department, and their rule is you can't indict. But… there is this thing called the congress. You could not be more explicit!"
Having worked that out, Clinton blame-checked Russia, reminding the audience that "It's a story that needs to be told, and retold, over and over again, because we were the subject of a foreign adversary's attack."

"There's still so much more that we should know and that we should act upon and obviously that's what the Congress is trying to figure out – what to do right now," Clinton said, adding that "every American who cares about holding our adversaries accountable" should read the unredacted report "to prevent what happened from ever happening again."
While Clinton seemed excited to add "Justice Department rule" to the list of reasons why she isn't sitting in the White House, there is actually no law forbidding the indictment of a sitting president, though it hasn't been done before – fortunately for her husband's presidency.Also on rt.com No, Mueller didn't ‘prove’ Russian hacking in Florida – or anywhere else
Jaws dropped on Twitter at the perennial candidate's chutzpah.
No, I think you’re referring to the private email server in your basement containing Top Secret material. Which was also hacked by China, and who knows who else. That’s what anyone would be in prison for.— Devin Nunes 2024 🇺🇸 (@trippy_trader) April 23, 2019
How someone who only escaped charges of espionage & lying to the FBI because of her position & contacts can be so oblivious to her situation amazes me. The sense of entitlement this woman possesses is astounding. She’s one of Trump’s greatest assets for a 2020 landslide.— Dave Burgess (@daverburgess) April 23, 2019

Though, of course, she had her defenders, traditionally accusing the haters of being bots.
The bots are all over this thread. They're not even bothering to put up fake pics with flags and eagles anymore, they're back to plain old eggs again. Putin really doesn't like that woman.— audiomagnate (@audiomagnate) April 23, 2019
Yup. That's pretty much what everyone else who read the Report concouded, too.— Mark Tully (@MarkTully20) April 23, 2019
Others were more realistic…
I'm sorry, who even is she? Im truly baffled as to why i should value her opinion.— 🍉🌭BBQ Becky🍗🌽 (@cgraygca) April 23, 2019
…still others, not so much.
