Lindsey Graham Defends POTUS Comparing Impeachment To Lynching: “This Is A Lynching In Every Sense”

Totally agree with Lindsey but I also want him to do more than talk and start his own investigation as he promised

Sen. Lindsey Graham ran away from the haters and instigators to support Pres. Trump over the media trying to start a problem that wasn’t there in the first place.

Pres. Trump claimed: “So someday, 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!”

Democrats lost their minds! I hope they realize that words have meanings. Lynching, by definition, is to put to death, especially by hanging, by mob action and without legal authority. Yup. Sounds about right.

Graham agreed with Trump today when asked about Trump’s tweet calling the House “impeachment inquiry” a “lynching”:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Tuesday said President Trump is absolutely right to call the House impeachment process a “lynching.”

“This is a lynching in every sense. This is un-American,” Graham said to reporters.

“I’ve never seen a situation in my lifetime as a lawyer where somebody is accused of a major misconduct who cannot confront the accuser, call witnesses on her behalf and have the discussion in the light of day so the public can judge,” he said.

Graham backed up the president, saying, “I think that’s pretty well accurate.”

“I think lynching is being seen as somebody taking the law in their own hands and out to get somebody for no good reason,” he said.

Asked if he could understand why African Americans would be offended by the comparison, Graham stood his ground.

“Yes, African Americans have [been] lynched. Other people have been lynched throughout history. What does lynching mean? That a mob grabs you, they don’t give you a chance to defend yourself, they don’t tell you what happened to you, they just destroy you. That’s exactly what’s happening in the United States House of Representatives right now,” he said.

“In every sense, this is a mob taking over the rule of law. This is fundamentally un-American and until it changes, I will fight back as hard as I can,” he said of House Democrats. [The Hill]

It’s no surprise Democrats are mad at Trump for using the word since it was Democrats doing all the lynchings of Black Republicans in the South throughout US history. History and facts are the enemies of the Democrat party.

Trump needs the Senate to back him up big time RIGHT NOW, no ifs, ands or buts. Senate leaders need to tell the House that any of this nonsense fake impeachment nonsense will not be entertained at any level.
