Over the past 24-hours, President Trump likened the impeachment inquiry to a modern “lynching.” The Democrats took to Twitter immediately and began condemning the president even though they have done the same thing in the past.
Twitter was ablaze with alt-left activists and race hustlers who thought it proper to condemn President Trump for using the term.
What they failed to disclose was in 1998, Rep. Jerry Nadler used the same term when he was describing Bill Clinton’s impeachment. Oddly, when exposed to the truth, some Democrats denied the allegations while others quickly changed the subject.
Records show that a top House Democrat — House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) — made that same comparison himself in 1998 during Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
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. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!

MERRIAM_WEBSTER definition of #Lynching –To go after someone by mob action without legal approval or permission or without giving said individual due process…

Interestingly, according to an October 4, 1998, Associated Press article that touted Nadler’s role as a top Clinton defender, the then-51-year-old congressman said:
“I am the president’s defender in the sense that I haven’t seen anything yet that would rise, in my opinion, to the level of an impeachable offense.” “I wish we could get this over with quickly. … In pushing the process, in pushing the arguments of fairness and due process the Republicans so far have been running a lynch mob,” Nadler added.
Comparing impeachment to a #lynching is one of the most despicable and disgusting things to come out of this president’s mouth and that’s really saying something. Anyone who tries to defend this remark is just as reprehensible.https://t.co/ye8GFBFON8

Many Republicans came to the president’s defense. One of them was Senator Lindsey Graham. Graham is known for defending the president on many issues.
On Tuesday, Graham backed up President Donald Trump’s assessment that the Democratic impeachment inquiry is a “lynching,” adding it is a “sham.”
When asked what he thought of Trump’s characterization of the impeachment inquiry as a lynching, Graham responded, “I think that’s pretty well accurate.”
The Left has attacked the president and made many outlandish claims about his character. They accused him of colluding with Russia and claimed he was a “Russian agent.”
As usual, the Democrats were proven to be liars.
