Former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave the commencement speech at her alma matter Wellesley today. On "Pure Opelka," Mike Opelka took issue with some inaccuracies she included in her address.

After having increasing difficulty speaking due to allergy coughs, the former 2016 presidential candidate said, "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 was referring to former president Richard Nixon, who was not actually impeached because he resigned.

Mike felt Clinton should have known that because she would have been fired from the Watergate investigation by Jerry Zeifman, chief counsel of the House Judiciary Committee at the time, if he'd had the power to do so.

He also noted that she failed to mention the actual impeachment of her husband, former president Bill Clinton.
