Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, ripped President Donald Trump for comparing the impeachment inquiry to a "lynching."
Green's comments came in a Tuesday tweet. They came after a tweet by the president, who had remarked about Democrats' efforts to impeach him.
"All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here - a lynching," Trump wrote.
But Green said Trump was no better than the participants in the August 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
He wrote: "Mr. President, HOW DARE YOU compare impeachment to lynching (the mob murdering and racist terrorizing of Black people)? Your continuing to weaponize hate make you no better than the bigots who screamed 'blood and soil' in Charlottesville."
