An advisor for Donald Trump, who said the former secretary of state Hillary Clinton should be “shot for treason,” is being investigated by the Secret Service.Advertisement
The development came in an interview with a Boston talk radio host wherein Al Baldasaro said Clinton should face a firing squad for the Benghazi attack in 2012. Baldasaro is a New Hampshire representative who serves on Trump’s veterans’ coalition and as a Trump delegate at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
“She is a disgrace for any, the lies she told those mothers about their children that got killed over there in Benghazi,” Baldasaro said, as reported by ABC News. “She dropped the ball on over 400 emails requesting back up security. Something’s wrong there. Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason.”
On July 20, he said that “penalty for treason is the firing squad – or maybe it’s the electric chair now.”
The remarks of Baldasaro, who was a U.S. Marine between June 1975 and January 1988 (according to LinkedIn) and is currently serving in his fifth term in the New Hampshire House, prompted the Democratic Party in New Hampshire to call for his resignation, referring to the comments as “disgusting, offensive and frighteningly commonplace in the party of Trump.”
Baldasaro became the subject of discussion and debate after posting pictures of his wedding – showing family members attending the party with various types of guns in their hands – which he posted on his Facebook on August 2013.

Responding to the controversy stirred over the pictures, Baldasaro said as reported by Londonderry Patch, “The Liberals at it again, no respect what so ever but I have to say not all Democrats act like them. They owe my wife and me an apology but I won’t hold my breath waiting, shame on them.”
Baldasaro has also served as a representative for Londonderry since November 2006.
