Lindsey Graham Stands Up for Trump: Impeachment Inquiry a ‘Lynching in Every Sense'
Erin Scott/ReutersPresident Donald Trump's shocking comparison of the ongoing impeachment inquiry against him to a "lynching" provoked widespread condemnation from congressional members of both parties on Monday—with the notable exception of Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who told reporters on Capitol Hill that the investigation into Trump is "a lynching in every sense."

"I think it's pretty well accurate—this is a shame, this is a joke," Graham told a gaggle of reporters on Monday morning. "This is a lynching in every sense. This is un-American. I've never seen a situation in my lifetime as a lawyer where somebody's accused of a major misconduct who cannot confront the accusers, call witnesses on their behalf, and have the discussion in the light of day so the public can judge."

Trump's Monday morning tweet—in which he encouraged Republicans to "remember what they are witnessing here - a lynching"—is the latest escalation in the president's increasingly hyperbolic reactions to the impeachment inquiry, which he has called a "coup," a "scam" and, of course, a "witch hunt."
