nearvideo trump on impeachment of secrecy: you do not want the facts to come out
President Trump describes re-election and removal from office during an exclusive interview on ‘Hannity.’
President Trump described the house Democrats’ charge of the survey as a “lynching” on Tuesday, calling the way it is run, it opens the door for future presidents to be charged with “without due process or fairness or any of its rights.”
“So, one day, when a Democrat is President and the Republicans win the house, even by a small margin, you can accuse the President, without due process, or fairness, or any rights” Trump tweeted. “All Republicans need to remember what you experience here—it’s a lynching. But we will WIN!”
The language is reminiscent of the famous charge of now-Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who is black, that was in 1991, for his confirmation process as a “high-tech lynching,” as he denied the allegations at the time of sexual harassment against Anita Hill.
But Trump was quickly condemned by Democrats for the use of this racially-charged language on Tuesday.
“You think that this indictment is a LYNCHING is?” tweeted Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill. “What the hell is wrong with you? Do you know how many people have been lynched have the appearance as I have, since the founding of this country, of people that look like them. Delete this tweet.”
“It is beyond shameful to use the word ‘lynching’ to describe, will be held accountable for their actions,” Julian Castro, the Democratic presidential candidate, tweeted.
The President of the tweet comes in the midst of the escalating impeachment inquiry in the house. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the formal process, last month announced that, after the revelations about the president’s summer phone conversation with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, in which he pushed for politically sensitive investigations.
HOUSE VOTES TO SET ASIDE THE RESOLUTION BLAMES SHIP
As detailed in a whistleblower complaint and the transcript of the interview, Trump pushed the Ukrainian President, the Biden to launch an investigation of former Vice-President Joe and his son, Hunter Biden, over their actions in Ukraine—in particular, why the elder Biden put under pressure, the former Ukrainian President to fire a top Prosecutor who was investigating a natural gas company, where Hunter was sitting on the Board.
The President, the request came after millions in U.S. military aid for Ukraine have been frozen, something that critics cited as evidence of a quid-pro-quo arrangement. The White house and the President’s allies have denied a quid pro quo-although the Acting White house chief of staff Mick Mulvaney seemed to say something else, before it have maintained walking back-and the three-piece, you would be wrong, “nothing”.
Meanwhile, the house Republican, house Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff blasted for the way the investigation was handled so far, claimed last week that he and the other Democratic Committee chairmen withheld critical impeachment documents, and records of them.
In the night of Tuesday, the Republicans on a resolution for the disapproval of a ship, from California, on his handling of the impeachment inquiry, but the Democratic-led house introduced, the repeal of the measure.
The vote was 218-185. All Democrats voted to table the censorship resolution, with the help of all the Republicans, a movement trump praised the vote, to take measures–Tuesday morning.
After the vote, house Republican leader Kevin McCarthy ship condemned “serious error” and “reckless behavior.”

“Every member of Congress a high standard of honesty and integrity must respect. When it comes to matters of national security, that responsibility is even greater,” McCarthy, R-Calif., said. “Chairman of the ship remained behind of his duty. Claimed that he had shown evidence for Russian collusion with the trump campaign to cover up his Committee’s relationship with the whistleblower, he has a pattern of lying to the American people on questions of intelligence.”
Ship, although, tweeted Monday night: “It will be said, of the Republicans, as she realized that she lacked the courage to fight against the most dangerous and unethical President in American history, they consoled themselves by attacking those who did it.”
Ship has said that he would “clear” in regard to his Committee prior to contact with the whistleblower, which is not originally disclosed.
Ship previously said that “we have not spoken directly to the whistleblowers”, relying on his intelligence Committee-even though his office later narrowed the claim, saying the ship itself, “knows not the identity of the whistleblower, and not met, with speaking or with the whistleblower or their counsel” reasons.
