Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell compared President Donald Trump to Osama Bin Laden before the House vote to impeach the president for a second time.

In an interview with PBS News Hour, Swalwell said Trump’s actions were comparable to the Bin Laden after rioters supporting Trump stormed the U.

S. capitol on Jan. 6, committing acts of vandalism and violence and postponing the electoral college certification process, forcing members of Congress to evacuate the building.

“Well, Osama Bin Laden did not enter US soil on September 11, but it was widely acknowledged that he was responsible for inspiring the attack on our country and the president, with his words, using the word fight… that is hate speech that inspired and radicalized people to storm the Capitol,” Swalwell said in the interview.

Swalwell was then asked if he was comparing Trump to Bin Laden, to which he did not directly respond to the question.

“I’m comparing the words of a individual who would incite and radicalize somebody as Osama Bin Laden did to what President Trump did. You don’t actually have to commit the violence yourself but if you call others to violence that itself is a crime,” he said.

WATCH: 

In December, a group of 17 top House Republicans sent a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi demanding Swalwell be removed from the House Intelligence Committee after news broke about his relationship with a suspected Chinese spy.

The House impeachment resolution charges Trump with one article of “incitement of insurrection” and the effort is being led by Democratic Reps. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, Jamie Raskin of Maryland and Ted Lieu of California. Democrats in the House of Representatives introduced at least one article of impeachment against Trump on Monday morning. (RELATED: REPORT: McConnell Believes Trump Committed Impeachable Offenses)

Twitter Suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene

Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal Twitter account was suspended Sunday after violating policies, Twitter said in a statement, the Hill reported.

Greene’s account was suspended for “multiple violations of our civic integrity policy,” Twitter told The Hill. Greene then criticized Twitter and big tech in a statement, saying they are silencing Americans and stripping their rights.

“The borderline monopolistic stranglehold a few Big Tech companies have on the American political discourse is out of control. If a conservative dares to utter a political opinion that is deemed unapproved by the internet police they are now subject to false accusations of ‘inciting violence’ simply for having an conservative view,” Greene said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.

“Americans rights are being stripped and they aren’t being heard by the people they elected to represent them. And with Big Tech silencing them, they literally can’t be heard. The censorship has got to stop,” Greene continued. (RELATED: Freshman GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Says She Will Introduce Articles Of Impeachment Against Biden On January 21)
