The bill, which Cory Booker said last year was inspired by Jussie Smollett's supposed "lynching," does not make lynching illegal as it's already illegal but instead creates a new crime called "conspiracy to lynch" that will allow the feds to ramp up mass incarceration for thought crimes.
Senator Paul is "single-handedly" holding this atrocious bill up as the GOP-controlled senate is too cowardly to stand against it, lest they be perceived as "pro-lynching."
Hey @CoryBooker and @KamalaHarris lynching is already illegal but slapping someone is not lynching, We shouldn't conflate someone who has an altercation with minor injuries, with lynching, That's my opposition to this without my amendment to fix it. https://t.co/vmyuk55Dcc— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) June 5, 2020
