Hank Johnson, the Democrat Representative for Georgia's Fourth Congressional District, claims that Capitol rioters would have "lynched" black members of Congress if they could have.

Johnson on Satuday appeared on "Nation", a program on MSNBC, and was being interviewed by host Al Sharpton.

"This is nothing but a race war that was about to be unleashed. Had it not been for the gunshot of the one shot fired by that plainclothes officer in the Speaker’s lobby right behind the House gallery … if those people had been able to get through, they would have had us who were in the gallery up on the third floor trapped."

Johnson then went on to say that, in his opinion, people in Congress who "look like him would have been swinging from those railings."

Johnson continued:

"They could have had their pick of who they wanted to make an example of. And they came to the Capitol to do business. And the business that they were about was to lynch some people. They talk about Mike Pence, they talk about Nancy Pelosi, but you and I know, Reverend Al, that one of us would have been hanging with them."
