Congressman threatened with lynching after calling for Trumps impeachment

During a town hall meeting Saturday, Congressman Al Green played recordings of threatening voicemail messages left for him after he demanded the impeachment of President Donald Trump on the House floor earlier this week.

"You'll be hanging from a tree," one caller said.

The calls use graphic racial slurs, some calling Green the n-word. "You ain't going to impeach nobody. Try it and we will lynch all of you," the caller said.

On Wednesday, the Houston Democrat became the first member of Congress to call for Trump's impeachment from the House floor. The congressman said the firing of FBI Director James Comey was one of the reasons. Listen to the calls U.S. Rep. Al Green received.

"It does not deter us," Green said of the threats. "We are not going to be intimidated. We are not going to allow this to cause us to deviate from what we believe to be the right thing to do and that is to proceed with the impeachment of President Trump."

1. Threatening anyone, particularly a US Congressperson, is a crime.

I wonder if Jeff Sessions can take time out of his busy schedule- filled with things like obsessing over how to stop legal marijuana- to do something about that shit.

4. He would prefer

 

that all AA were back in the cotton fields, hanging from trees or in his for profit prison system, so no he won't find time for a crime of such as this. The people threatening Congressman Green are HIS TYPE of human being.....
