Trump Adviser: Clinton Should Be ‘Shot For Treason’ Over Benghazi Attack (VIDEO)

An adviser to Donald Trump on veterans issues said Tuesday that Hillary Clinton should be put on the firing line and be “shot for treason” over the Benghazi terror attacks.

New Hampshire state Rep. Al Baldasaro, who is also a delegate for Trump from the Granite State, said in an interview on WRKO’s “The Jeff Kuhner Show” first flagged by BuzzFeed News, Baldasaro noted that he is a veteran, as is his son. He compared Clinton to the “Jane Fonda of the Vietnam War” before labelled her a “disgrace” for the way she responded to the Benghazi attacks and spoke to families of the victims as secretary of state.

“This whole thing disgusts me, Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason,” he declared.

Trump’s campaign spokeswoman told NH1 News that Baldasaro didn’t speak for the campaign.

“We’re incredibly grateful for his support, but we don’t agree with his comments,” spokeswoman Hope Hicks said.

Clinton’s response to the Benghazi attacks was rehashed by several speakers Monday night at the Republican National Convention.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
