Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) said on America's Newsroom that Hillary Clinton could face impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives if she is elected president. 

Speaking to Bill Hemmer today, McCaul said that Huma Abedin's emails - which were found on Anthony Weiner's laptop in a separate investigation of the disgraced former congressman - represents "new evidence .... that could be quite damaging."

He said the reopened investigation will keep going beyond Election Day into a potential Clinton presidency.

"[If] the investigation goes forward and it looks like an indictment is pending, at that point in time under the Constitution, the House of Representatives would engage in an impeachment trial. It would go to the Senate and impeachment proceedings and removal would take place," he said.

Hemmer asked whether McCaul really wanted to use "the I-word" right before the presidential election. McCaul, a former prosecutor and currently the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, pointed out newly-released WikiLeaks emails showing John Podesta emailed Clinton aide Cheryl Mills to say "we are going to have to dump all those emails."

"That's getting a little closer to intent," said McCaul, adding that it would be a "smoking gun" if the FBI finds a new email in which classified information was knowingly sent.

McCaul said there is already "ample evidence" to take this case before a grand jury. He said there should have been a grand jury from the start to remove politics from the equation.
