Impeachment probe is “lynching” : Trump

Washington, Oct 23: US President Donald Trump compared his impeachment to “lynching” ,taking back to the darkest annals of US history, the violent deaths of Americans brutalized by vigilantes.

Trump took to Twitter early Tuesday morning to lament publicly about how Democrats are running their impeachment inquiry, repeating familiar talking points before making his first public reference to “lynching” as president.

“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,” Trump wrote Tuesday on Twitter. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!”

The impeachment inquiry yielded damning testimony from a State Department official who said under oath that the president had leveraged foreign aid to Ukraine while seeking investigations into political opponents. Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, have denied that charge.
