It seems that calls for a hanging and to “lock [Hillary Clinton] up” are not enough anymore. An adviser and delegate for Donald Trump is now suggesting that the appropriate punishment for the former Secretary of State’s failings is the firing squad.
New Hampshire lawmaker Al Baldasaro spoke Wednesday on the The Jeff Kushner Show, where he ranted at length about Clinton’s handling of the 2012 Benghazi attacks. This came after Patricia Smith spoke at the Republican Convention to blame Clinton personally for her son’s death in the attack.
“Hillary Clinton to me is the Jane Fonda of the Vietnam,” Baldasaro said in a segment caught by Buzzfeed. “She is a disgrace for the lies that she told those mothers about their children that got killed over there in Benghazi. She dropped the ball on over 400 emails requesting back up security. Something’s wrong there.”
Eventually, Baldasaro said that Clinton must pay the ultimate price.
“This whole thing disgusts me, Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason.”
The Daily Beast went on to contact Baldasaro, where he doubled down and said, “I believe Hillary Clinton committed treason. She put people in danger. When people take confidential material off a server, you’re sharing information with the enemy. That’s treason.”
