Congressman threatened with lynching after calling for Trumps impeachment

Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) on Saturday said that he has been threatened with lynching following his call for President Trump's impeachment.

The lawmaker held a town hall event and played several recorded messages left at his offices in Texas and D.C., as first reported by The Houston Chronicle.


"You'll be hanging from a tree," one caller said in a voicemail.
"You ain't going to impeach nobody," the caller added. "Try it and we will lynch all of you."

1. Hope they catch these deplorables. Of course, Trump would give them a freedom medal.

4. What year are these tugs from?

I hope they get caught and convicted on terroristic threats of a government official. Those charges carry on very stiff sentence and follow under the federal jurisdiction! Moronic Trump supports and a scary world once again!

5. You know it's times like this when I wonder...

If the *true* endgame in researching the possibility of sustainable space colonies, is to exile the Deplorables to Mars (when we take back the house of course).

I mean, they hate nature, fresh air, and any organism *other* than a white person.

Never again would they have to endure that stuff.

They'd finally be happy and free!

We'd *all* be winners!

In all seriousness, while I'm sorry our Congressman was threatened, I'm glad he saved those messages, and is exposing these (so-called) "people". I hope charges are pressed.
