The Secret Service said Wednesday that they are looking into New Hampshire State Senator Al Baldasaro after he called for Hillary Clinton's execution for "treason."
Baldasaro is an adviser to the Trump campaign for veteran's issues and has appeared at Trump campaign events. He called for Clinton's execution by firing squad for her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.


The U.S. Secret Service is aware of this matter and will conduct the appropriate investigation," Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback told NBC News in a statement Wednesday.
Baldasaro first made the comments on the Jeff Kuhner radio showTuesday, and stood by his wordswhen confronted.
Trump campaign aide Hope Hicks told NBC News "of course Mr. Trump does not feel this way" when asked to respond to Baldasaro's comments.
The violent rhetoric towards the presumptive Democratic nominee has escalated this week, particularly at the Republican National Convention where political figures are calling for her punishment — ranging from spankings to public hangings.

Re: Secret Service Investigating Trump Adviser Baldasaro for Clinton Execution Commen


New Hampshire state Sen. Al Baldasaro, a Marine veteran who advises Trump on veterans' issues and has campaigned with him in New Hampshire, said in an interview with NBC News that Clinton's use of a private server should be considered treason and "as far as I'm concerned, the laws of the land on treason could be a firing squad if she's found guilty.

I'm a fan of context.

Oh lookee, more context,

After making the comments to Kuhner on July 19, Baldasaro told WMUR on July 20 in New Hampshire that:


I’m a military man first, and anyone who takes information about our CIA or Secret Service and people at our embassy and puts it out on a server where anyone can grab it, putting Americans in danger to be killed, should be held accountable.

More flinging of poo to see if it'll stick. Taking quotes out of context to create pointless poutrage seems to be a favorite pastime of some.

Re: Secret Service Investigating Trump Adviser Baldasaro for Clinton Execution Commen

Lets see... The context is he still thinks she should be executed because he thinks she's a treasonist.

The so-called context didn't change much about the OP.

But I'll give him this... his idiotic, over-the-top rhetoric fits in well with the Trump campaign.

As usual, you left out one key ingredient.

" ... the laws of the land on treason could be a firing squad if she's found guilty".

Gross misrepresentation is a hallmark of the Progressive Regime, and it's followers. At least they seem to prove it over and over.

nice of him to point out the punishment for treason... as if no one knows this.

Trumpeters are champs of throwing stones, dodging responsibility for having thrown stones and then bitch louder than holy hell when hit with a grain of sand.

There is no reason to "investigate" this.

No threat was made.

The man is entitled to an opinion.

Interesting response to your attempt to misrepresent facts so easily viewed. Business as usual among socialist progressives, but rather laughable among rational thinking people.

Not dodging at all. Senator Baldasaro stated that if Clinton is found guilty of treason, she should face the firing squad.

You made it about you when you lied about this fact.

If you don't want people to call you out, don't lie about the facts.

Re: Secret Service Investigating Trump Adviser Baldasaro for Clinton Execution Commen

Bottom line is this asshole works for Trump. And this, along with the Repub national convention clearly shows what Trumps presidential campaign message is... "Focus on hating Obama but hate Clinton even more... because we don't have a damn thing to offer as leadership for this country and we definitely don't want you looking at us because then you might figure that out."

:confused:

There is nothing to defend. He said that if she is found guilty of treason, she should face a firing squad. That is one of the options prescribed by law.

The only one dodging is you powerRob. You lied, and you're trying to figure out how to save face. Don't worry, it too late.

No one lied sonny boy. Back to your delusion. But with trump-like thin skin, I suspect you too won't ever let anything go... so go ahead.

Re: Secret Service Investigating Trump Adviser Baldasaro for Clinton Execution Commen

I know Baldasaro. I've met him many many times. I'm very disappointed in him. Yes, he's entitled to his opinion. No, it's not okay to say what he did about a Presidential candidate. Yes, the Secret Service has no choice but to investigate him. He was wrong to say what he did, right now, at this time. We all know that anyone can face a firing squad if convicted of treason. Why he had to use that kind of rhetoric when talking about Hillary Clinton is beyond me. Actually, it isn't beyond me. I respected him a lot as a good civil servant when he wasn't an adviser to the Trump campaign. These stupid kinds of comments are just exactly what I have come to expect from anything associated with Trump.

Re: Secret Service Investigating Trump Adviser Baldasaro for Clinton Execution Commen

I can't stand any of the people in this story but it is obvious the execution he speaks of should be as a part of due process and NOT a bunch of assassins going after her. Ridiculous but not criminal.
