Trump adviser who said Clinton should be shot for treason received Secret Service visit
Al Baldasaro says he stands by his comments.
Baldasaro, a New Hampshire state representative who advises Trump on veterans issues and was a delegate for him to the Republican convention, says he stands by his comments — though he contends they were misunderstood.
“What I’m saying is nobody is above the law. We’re a nation of laws. I spoke as a veteran and what I said was in accordance with the U.S. Code 18 and the Constitution on treason,” Baldasaro said on Liberty Roundtable radio on Friday.
“I, as an American, had an opinion, OK, on somebody that I believed had the broke the law, that put my fellow veterans and police, special agents, spies in other countries in danger,” he continued. “And they took it to the extent that they read between the lines of what I said. Naturally, you have to go in front of a court and be found guilty. If somebody didn’t understand that, then I’m sorry. That’s the far-left liberals that were too blind or the progressives, which is the next closest thing to socialism.”
