Trump calls impeachment inquiry a ‘lynching’
The comment marks a new, racially insensitive show of malice by the president toward lawmakers’ efforts to remove him from office.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday referred to the impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives as “a lynching,” deploying perhaps his most inflammatory rhetoric yet to describe the Democratic-led probe into his conduct.
“So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” he wrote on Twitter. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!”politico
