Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Tuesday said President Trump is absolutely right to call the House impeachment process a “lynching.”

“This is a lynching in every sense. This is un-American,” Graham said to reporters.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I’ve never seen a situation in my lifetime as a lawyer where somebody is accused of a major misconduct who cannot confront the accuser, call witnesses on their behalf and have the discussion in the light of day so the public can judge,” he said.

A firestorm erupted among Democrats after Trump tweeted Tuesday morning, “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!”

Twitter users are slamming Graham for defending Trump’s remark:

    Lynching
    (of a mob) kill (someone), especially by hanging, for an alleged offense with or without a legal trial.
    Hmm! Seems accurate to me. Behind door investigation, no Republicans or defense attorneys president, Pelosi fact sheet….the Democrats are spiteful and hateful.

    God Bless you Lindsay Graham. Call it like it is!! That is why we all love President Trump so much. He does not use the ELITE language – he just calls balls and strikes and I thank you for backing him. I believe you are a very good man and that your support of Trump will be rewarded. Thank you!

    To all of these so called black Americans that is attaching My Graham, before you open your mouth further, please let me take you down memory line of US History which it seems you haven’t learn, LYNCHING IS THE VIOLENT ACT DONE BY A MOB OF HATEFUL PEOPLE and if you know the History of Your Deplorable Democrat Party / The Original Name – The Nazi Party in the Past. They were the PEOPLE that Hung your great grandparents , uncles , aunts , cousins and great nieces and nephews from the trees in front of their own homes and churches. There were many white people that died along the side of blacks being hung by democrats because that were called (N) Lovers. You better learn history, because these same White Hooded People and now they have Blacks wearing the WHITE HOOD and these Fools don’t even realize it. You young black Americans, would you ever want to join a club or an organization that was the founder of the K. K.K. and acquired all of there principles and ideology from one of the most hateful man of the 20th century Hitler, Yes Hilter, than if you are a member of the Current Democrat Party than I welcome you to the party of the Nazi!!!. This is just a small part of the Deplorable Democrat Party History that They don’t won’t you’ll to know and understand , and this is why they always play the Race Card on Black Americans as if the Republican Party have always put and kept Blacks in Bondage and Poverty.
    , when it has been them (the Deplorable Democrats that brought and sold blacks into slavery and is solely responsible for the crisis within the black communities in America now. Just has Deplorables Democrats hung blacks in the past, they are the same violent and unhinged mob now in the Current Congress of the House that is trying very hard to ” lynch” / overthrow the legal 2016 election with countless false investigation, allegations and now a Phone Call with a foreign leader , A complete Modern Day LYNCHING.

    STAND YOUR GROUND, Graham.. do NOT back down … Trump is exactly right.. this is a modern day lynching of him by the democRAT swamp rats… They know they cannot beat him at the ballot box, so they are lying, cheating and fabricating evidence to remove him from office and they are not allowing him due process and have taken away his rights to defend himself …
