A video of a short speech by former attorney general Loretta Lynch has raised eyebrows in political circles, with some inspired and others concerned that it may incite violence.
In the video, posted to the Senate Democrats' official Facebook page, Lynch urged that fighting against the Trump administration would not be easy, but that fighting for one's rights has never been easy in the U.S.
"[People] marched. They bled. And yes, some have died," Lynch said.
Here's the speech.
The video, originally posted Feb. 28, was decried by some conservative outlets and observers, who saw it as a call to violence.
"She was so terribly dishonest and incompetent and now shows how nutty she is," wrote Joe Hoft for The Gateway Pundit.
Paul Joseph Watson of InfoWars implied the video incited violence.
Lynch served as Attorney General under former President Obama from 2015 through 2017. She was criticized during the campaign for meeting Bill Clinton while her Department of Justice was investigating Hillary Clinton's email server.
This controversy comes after Trump tweeted that Obama's administration had wiretapped his office, citing no evidence. Aides argue that the DoJ was involved in this wiretapping.
