& Democratic Party
Donald Trump compared the House impeachment investigation into him to a lynching, drawing widespread outrage by members of both parties. Trump ranted that the House's investigation is being conducted "without due process or fairness or any legal rights" before comparing it to a lynching. The glaring problem with Donald's rant is that the House has the sole Constitutional authority to conduct impeachment proceedings how they see fit, so comparing that to a lynching doesn't make sense in the first place.
Quote | The horrifying claim drew widespread outrage by members of both parties.
"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!"
