Sen. Doug Jones (D-Mountain Brook) blasted President Donald Trump Tuesday, for comparing the Democrats' impeachment inquiry to a lynching.
The president tweeted:
“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!”
“No, @realdonaldtrump: this is NOT a lynching, and shame on you for invoking such a horrific act that was used as a weapon to terrorize and murder African Americans.”
But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) came to the President's defense. "What does lynching mean? A mob grabs you, they don't give you a chance to defend yourself ... they just destroy you. That's exactly what's going on."
