Surprise: Many Democrats Liked Comparing Clinton Impeachment To Lynching

And nobody freaked out over what was just a term. See, Trump dropped this

If Leftists don’t think that a) Trump and his team knew exactly what he was doing and b) had done some research, they haven’t been paying attention. Team Trump knows exactly how to Troll (Master level) Democrats. And Breitbart’s Penny Star was able to do a quick search and find

An article published in the New York Times on December 19, 1998 during the impeachment of Bill Clinton:

Later, Representative Ike Skelton, Democrat of Missouri, said the Republicans wanted to “decapitate their Commander in Chief.” Representative Steven R. Rothman, a New Jersey Democrat, complained of a “Republican juggernaut, driven by the right wing.” Representative Patrick J. Kennedy, Democrat of Rhode Island, a nephew of the late President John F. Kennedy, spoke of “a political lynching,” and Representative Danny K. Davis, an Illinois Democrat, denounced what he described as “a lynching.”

The New York Times wrote about Bill Clinton’s impeachment on September 18, 1998:

A ”large volume of calls” to Senator John Glenn, a Democrat who said this week that it would be ”reckless and injudicious” for him to join ”the rush to judgment” in the Lewinsky matter, have run 2 to 1 in favor of resignation or impeachment. Mr. Chabot’s office said the tally there was 425 to 15 against Mr. Clinton since Kenneth W. Starr issued his report a week ago.

Not that the President lacks vocal supporters in this state. The Ohio Democratic chairman, David J. Leland, said, ”The vast majority of Ohio Democrats want to see this President continue in office, because they know a political lynching when they see one.”

The Baltimore Sun wrote about Bill Clinton’s impeachment on September 12, 1998:

“This feels today like we’re taking a step down the road to becoming a political lynch mob,” fumed Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott of Washington state. “Find the rope, find the tree and ask a bunch of questions later.”

Those are just three quoted uses of lynching for the Clinton impeachment. How about

CBS wrote about the “GOP Lynch mob” on April 6, 2011:

GOP lynch mob is still trying to string up the fledgling Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Members of the House Financial Services Committee met today to discuss four bills, all sponsored by Republicans and backed by the banking industry, aimed at subduing the agency even before it officially launches this summer.

And here’s Sleepy Joe

    Agreed. Trump should apologize for his very poor choice of words, used to fire up his volatile base.

    Calling a Constitutional process like impeachment “a lynching” would be like calling Medicare cuts “a Holocaust”.

  2. Doom and Gloom says:

    GOP House member Matt Gaetz is condemning Democrats for concealing their impeachment proceedings from Republicans. In a fiery speech Wednesday, Gaetz was joined by a number of his Republican colleagues who attempted storm into a facility where Democrats were looking into classified materials as part of their inquiry.

    Gaetz said if Democrats plan to pursue their inquiry, Americans have a right to a transparent investigation. He added, that investigation has been anything but straight forward so far. His comments comes as Senator Lindsey Graham finalizes a resolution to formally condemn the House impeachment inquiry.

    Meanwhile back at the ranch the democrats continue their secret society LYNCH MOB.

    Good old Biden he can apologize and its okay now. Trump could beg for mercy on his knees for a 1000 years and it would not be okay with the woke Democratic lunatics.
