William Taylor testifies before House CommitteeU.S. President Donald Trump likened the impeachment investigation into his dealings with Ukraine to a “lynching” on Tuesday in a tweet that drew condemnation for his inflammatory reference to decades of killings of thousands of black Americans.

Republican Trump issued his comment on Twitter just before Tuesday’s closed-door testimony by William Taylor, a U.S. diplomat expected to be an important witness in the inquiry led by Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Lawmakers planned to ask Taylor, the acting ambassador at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, about Trump's withholding of security assistance for the government in Kiev, which Taylor called "crazy."
