Hillary Clinton, in some of her sharpest remarks about her former rival since the election, suggested Friday that President Trump could face impeachment hearings for firing FBI Director James Comey.

Clinton, in a graduation speech at her alma mater Wellesley College, took repeated veiled shots at Trump for having launched "a full-fledged assault on truth and reason," and proposing a budget that represented an "attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us," before appearing to compare the growing investigations surrounding him to those that ultimately took down former President Richard Nixon.

While she never mentioned Trump by name, Clinton spoke at length about the fury she felt years after her 1969 graduation from Wellesley over the scandal Nixon had brought on himself.
 

'We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice … after firing the person running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice," she said to cheers.
