US President Donald Trump has called the congressional impeachment investigation that may seek to remove him from office “a lynching”.

In a tweet Mr Trump condemned the inquiry as “without due process or fairness or any legal rights”.

Democrats may seek to impeach the Republican president by Christmas.

A racially loaded term in the US, lynching refers to historic extrajudicial executions by white mobs against mainly African Americans.
