Some users on Twitter were not impressed by a tweet that 2016 Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton posted that said President Donald Trump was “not above the law” — including Juanita Broaddrick, who accused her husband, former President Bill Clinton, of sexually assaulting her.
On Monday, Clinton — who lost to Trump in the 2016 presidential election — posted a passive-aggressive tweet targeting the president, saying that he was “not above” the laws of the United States.
“I don’t know who needs to hear this,” Clinton tweeted, “but the president is not above the law.”
I don't know who needs to hear this, but the president is not above the law.

Twitter users, in turn, torched the former secretary for her snide commentary, calling Clinton out for her “hypocrisy.”
President Trump didn’t break the law

I can give you 33,000 reasons why you’re not above the law either.

Neither are Secretary's of State who use BleachBit to destroy 30,000 emails worth of evidence in an FBI criminal investigation into their illegal use of a private server to conduct official government business. https://t.co/zZ5KRxYWFS

Some users pointed to the time when former President Clinton was faced with his own impeachment issues and noted that “perhaps” she and her husband needed the reminder.
Yet @BillClinton was not removed from office despite perjury and despite a special counsel using the term guilty on POTUS almost a dozen times; unlike in this case where the SC left it hanging.

Broaddrick, who accused the former president of sexually assaulting her while he was governor of Arkansas in 1978, called out the former secretary for her tweet as well.
HOLY CRAP! That’s rich Madam Sucks-retary. Laws haven’t applied to you for 40 years……. but get ready, that’s about to change. https://t.co/U8jg1s8Gvb

As IJR Red previously reported, Broaddrick slammed the Democrats as having “the biggest double-standard [she’s] ever seen” during the contentious confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, during which Christine Blasey Ford testified about her sexual assault allegations against the then-judge.
The Democrats in the Senate at the time refused to hear Broaddrick’s allegations, according to the Daily Wire.
