A House Republican already wants to impeach Hillary Clinton

By Amber Phillips September 9 at 10:26 AM

As frustrated as Republicans may be with the FBI's findings on Hillary Clinton's use of a private email while she was secretary of state, there's not much they can actually do about it. The FBI and Department of Justice already made their decision not to charge her with a crime, and congressional Republicans can't do much more than review that work and ask the executive branch to launch new investigations.

So it's no surprise that we're starting to hear some frustrated congressional Republicans reach for the sharpest arrow in their tool kit: impeachment. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) recently floated the idea to the Associated Press's Erica Werner: "There probably ought to be" impeachment hearings.

As far as we can tell, he's the first lawmaker to suggest as much, though some conservative thinkers have been arguing that Congress should impeach the former secretary of state for some time now.

But hang on a second. Can Congress even impeach Clinton?

1. They may as well get used to disappointment. There is much more in their near future
