President Trump referred to the Democrats’ latest impeachment push as a political “lynching” this week; sparking outrage from countless far-left lawmakers demanding he apologize for his comments.
The Democrats’ fury conveniently ignores multiple politicians -including former Vice President Joe Biden- labeling Clinton’s impeachment trial a modern-day “lynching.”
“This feels to me, like we’re going down the road of becoming a political lynch-mob,” said Congressman Jim McDermott.
“What we’re doing here is not a prosecution, it’s a persecution. Indeed, it is a political lynching,” added Rep. Gregory Meeks.

FLASHBACK: Joe Biden Called Clinton Impeachment a ‘Partisan Lynching’ in 1998
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden apologized this week after footage surfaced of the former Vice President calling Bill Clinton’s impeachment a “partisan lynching” back in 1998.
“This wasn’t the right word to use and I’m sorry about that. Trump on the other hand chose his words deliberately today in his use of the word lynching and continues to stoke racial divides in this country daily,” posted Biden on social media.

Democrats pounced on President Trump Tuesday after he referred to liberal lawmakers’ efforts to remove him from office a “lynching.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham exploded on the Democrats’ “sham” impeachment investigation Tuesday; telling reporters on Capitol Hill the whole process is completely “Un-American.”
“This is a sham. This is a joke. I’m going to let the whole world know that if we were doing this to a Democratic president, you would be all over me right now… This is a lynching in every sense. This is un-American.”
President Trump spoke with Sean Hannity at the White House Monday afternoon; calling-out House Democrats’ for the veil of secrecy surrounding their latest impeachment inquiry and the Ukraine.
“We have tremendous support, we’ve got taxes, we’ve got regulations, the stock market. That’s in a fairly short period of time. We’re doing great, we’re beating everybody… We’ve done things that nobody else has done,” said the President.
“To me, ‘impeach’ is a very ugly word… To impeach over a letter like that. They don’t mention any of this anymore. What they’re doing now is something that’s never been done before. They don’t want the facts to come out. Republicans have no lawyers, we can’t question, we can’t do a thing,” he added.
