Hillary Clinton claims the Capitol riots were the “the tragically predictable result of white-supremacist grievances fueled by President Trump” and supported calls for his impeachment.
The comments come in a published op-ed at the Washington Post.
In addition to calling for the President’s impeachment, Mrs. Clinton also demanded any Republican lawmakers who objected to the certification of electoral votes be forced to resign.
“Removing Trump from office is essential, and I believe he should be impeached,” she writes.
“Members of Congress who joined him in subverting our democracy should resign, and those who conspired with the domestic terrorists should be expelled immediately,” Clinton added.
Trump should be impeached. But that alone won’t remove white supremacy from America, @HillaryClinton writes https://t.co/bRnfPdzYPt

Hillary Clinton: Trump Should Be Impeached But It Won’t Remove White Supremacy From America
Clinton went on to suggest that even Trump’s impeachment would not result in “white supremacy” being eradicated.
“That alone won’t remove white supremacy and extremism from America,” she stated.
You have to hand it to the Democrats – no matter how misinformed their talking points are – they just keep dishing out those talking points with total disregard for reality.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also made racial allegations against those who stormed the Capitol, stating they chose “their whiteness” over Democracy.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama ignored the fact that a white, unarmed 14-year Navy veteran was shot dead as a result of the protest, and instead claimed those involved were treated differently because they weren’t black.
Her husband echoed the same sentiment.
President-elect Joe Biden chimed in saying “that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting … they would have been treated very, very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol.”
Prominent Democrat figures took a mostly peaceful protest about election integrity and turned it into a Klan rally. That’s how little these people think of Trump supporters.
Last week’s attack is cause for grief and outrage. But it should not be cause for shock.

Clinton’s Advice on Dealing with Extremists
Clinton proceeded to outline her thoughts on how incoming President Biden should deal with “white supremacists and extremists.”
“There are changes elected leaders should pursue immediately, including advocating new criminal laws at the state and federal levels that hold white supremacists accountable and tracking the activities of extremists such as those who breached the Capitol,” she wrote.
Yes, the woman who made the phrase “superpredator” in referring to young African-Americans famous, who said they needed to “bring them to heel,” and who was mentored by the late Senator Robert Byrd, a recruiter for the KKK, has some thoughts on dealing with racists.
Clinton also celebrated Big Tech’s efforts to shut the President down.
“Twitter and other companies made the right decision to stop Trump from using their platforms, but they will have to do more to stop the spread of violent speech and conspiracy theories,” she said.

The Clinton op-ed is little more than the bitter ramblings of a person who has been sulking over her election defeat in 2016.
There is no evidence that the Capitol protests were fueled by race. There is no evidence that President Trump, who made multiple pleas with protesters to “go home” and “go in peace” is responsible for the violence that took place.
Yet, the Washington Post runs the disinformation campaign while Big Tech platforms help share it. The Democrat state-run media knows no lows with which they are unwilling to sink.
