House Dem apologizing for comparing new Trump impeachment to a 'lynching'

An Oregon Democrat is apologizing for likening a second 弹each特朗普总统 to alynching.

代表. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore., immediately caught heat for leaked comments he made during a private phone call with House 民主党人 Friday about impeachment and the Capitol riot.

While there appears to be broad consensus among House Democrats that Trump shouldn’t be allowed to serve out the final days of his presidency, Schrader on Friday told his Democratic colleagues that impeachment could backfire.

He called the impeachment effort anold-fashioned lynchingthat would tear the country apart, 根据Politico.

I don’t want to breathe life into the corpse of this president, I don’t want him to become a martyr,” Schrader added.

The lynching remark drew quick rebukes, with Schrader’s longtime political consultant Winning Mark, tweeting they would not longer work with Schrader.

Comparing the impeachment of a treasonous President who encouraged white supremacists to violently storm the Capitol to a ‘lynchingis shameful and indefensible,” the company tweeted.

Fellow Oregon Democrat Rep. Suzanne Bonamici also distanced herself from her colleague.

Our nation has an unforgivable history of murdering Black men and women,” Bonamici told Oregon Public Broadcasting. “Comparing a lynching to holding the president accountable is hurtful and insensitive, and ignores the overt White supremacy on display during the insurrection Wednesday.

Later Friday, Schrader said he took responsibility for his language on the call with his Democratic colleagues.

My words were wrong, hurtful and completely inappropriate,” Schrader said in a statement. “I sincerely apologize to my colleagues, constituents and friends for the pain I caused.

他继续: “I recognize the horrible historical context of these words and have started to reach out to my colleagues personally to express that I understand the harm caused. I will work hard to rebuild trust and again, I humbly apologize.
