President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday morning where questioned Democrats’ motives behind their so-called impeachment efforts and wondered if the way it’s being conducted opens the door for future presidents to be impeached “without due process or fairness or any legal rights.”

The President’s tweet comes amid the escalating impeachment inquiry in the House. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced the formal process last month, following hearsay surrounding the President’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, despite the White House releasing the transcribed phone call.

The Commander in Cheif on Tuesday morning wrote on Twitter, “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!” he declared.

Following the President’s tweet, Democrat lawmakers and leftwing media claimed he used “racially charged language” attacking his tweet.

“Lynching is a reprehensible stain on this nation’s history, as is this President. We’ll never erase the pain and trauma of lynching, and to invoke that torture to whitewash your own corruption is disgraceful,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) tweeted Tuesday, in response to the President, but seemingly the same rules don’t apply to the California Senator as she tweeted in January about the debunked Jussie Smollett hoax calling it a “modern-day lynching“.


Rep. Steve Cohen also attacked the President on Tuesday for using the term “lynching” and wrote on Twitter, “@realDonaldTrump lynching is a form of racial terrorism. Your use of the word is offensive to the memory of the many African American victims & shows a lack of historical understanding. You should delete your tweet & take the time to learn why your words are so harmful.”

Ironically, Cohen himself used the same language on Twitter in 2012.

Democrats Compared Clinton’s Impeachment To Lynching:

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) made that same comparison himself in 1998 during Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

According to an October 4, 1998, Associated Press article that touted Nadler’s role as a top Clinton defender, the then-51-year-old congressman said: “I am the president’s defender in the sense that I haven’t seen anything yet that would rise, in my opinion, to the level of impeachable offense,” Breitbart reported.

“I wish we could get this over with quickly. … In pushing the process, in pushing the arguments of fairness and due process the Republicans so far have been running a lynch mob,” Nadler said.

Democratic Illinois Rep. Danny K. Davis condemned the impeachment trial as “a lynching,” and former Democratic Rhode Island Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy called it “a political lynching”, along with Jim McDermott (D-WA), who called it a “political lynch mob.”

Sen. Cory Booker also tweeted in January about Jussie Smollet: “The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I’m glad he’s safe. To those in Congress who don’t feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention.”

And, CNN called the Benghazi hearings “The high-tech lynching of Hillary Clinton”:
