Al Baldasaro, a New Hampshire state representative and member of Donald Trump's GOP veterans' coalition has repeated calls for US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to be executed and says reporters misunderstood the type of harm he wishes her. According to Al, Clinton's use of private e-mail servers while she was secretary of state could be seen as treason, to which the punishment is death.
In a radio show , Al Baldasaro, an army veteran said
“This whole thing disgusts me. Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason.”.
But after the US Secret Service said they have started investigations into Al Baldasaro's comments, for his encouragement of violence, Baldasaro now claims that he is the victim.
"The liberal media took what I said and went against the law and the Constitution and ran with it, and they said that I wanted her assassinated, which I never did,” Baldasaro told MassLive.com on Tuesday.
“I said I spoke as a veteran, and she should be shot in a firing squad for treason.”
