HOUSTON — A Black Texas congressman said that he’s been threatened with lynching by callers infuriated over him.
Rep. Al Green, a Democrat, held a town hall meeting and played recordings of several threatening voicemails left at his offices by white supremacists in Houston and Washington, the Houston Chronicle reports.
One male caller used a racial insult and threatened Green with “hanging from a tree” if he pursues impeachment of Donald Trump. Another man left a message saying Green would be the one impeached after “a short trial” and then he would be hanged, according to the recording.
The Trump supporters can also be heard on the recordings repeatedly referring to the Black congressman as a “nigger”, while threatening him with different forms of violence.
