This wasn’t the right word to use and I’m sorry about that. Trump on the other hand chose his words deliberately today in his use of the word lynching and continues to stoke racial divides in this country daily. https://t.co/mHfFC8HluZ— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 23, 2019
Impeachment is not "lynching," it is part of our Constitution. Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It's despicable. https://t.co/QcC25vhNeb— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 22, 2019
While Biden has called Trump’s lynching comments “abhorrent” and “despicable,” in 1998 appearance on CNN, Biden said impeachment could end up being viewed as a “partisan lynching.” https://t.co/4jGo8hSQSZhttps://t.co/6p210g7M6l pic.twitter.com/UkJiXLsHOG— andrew kaczynski🤔 (@KFILE) October 22, 2019
I don’t expect Trump to be sensitive to the weight of that word, or see how insulting and hurtful it is to invoke it here.— Rep. Gregory Meeks (@RepGregoryMeeks) October 22, 2019
I do expect Republicans to not even dare defend this language.
I do expect this administration to comply with our constitutional right to issue subpoenas. https://t.co/4fus9kScSW
