Representative Mo Brooks (R) says that his concern with Clinton’s use of a private email server is “how many lives she put at risk by violating all rules of law that are designed to protect America’s top secret and classified information from falling into the hands of our geopolitical foes who then might use that information to result in the deaths of Americans. […] [S]he will be a unique president if she is elected by the public next November [2016], because the day she’s sworn in is the day that she’s subject to impeachment because she has committed high crimes and misdemeanors.” (The Huffington Post, 10/19/2015)

A few days later, Clinton reacts to the impeachment threat: “It’s just laughable! It’s so totally ridiculous. […] It perhaps is good politics with… the most intense, extreme part of [the Republican] base.” (Politico, 10/23/2015)
