Nope, Trump Adviser Who Said Clinton Should Be Shot For Treason Isn’t Sorry

July 21, 2016 8:13 p.m.

An adviser to Donald Trump on veterans’ issues said Thursday that he isn’t sorry for saying Hillary Clinton should shot by a firing squad for treason.

In an interview with MSNBC on the floor of the Republican National Convention, Al Baldasaro, co-chair of Trump’s veterans group and a New Hampshire delegate and legislator, repeated that he thought Clinton should be tried for treason, but said there would have to be a trial to determine what her punishment would be.

“I said she should be tried for treason. Only at the end of a trial they tell you what the verdict is,” Baldasaro said.

The Secret Service said it was investigating Baldasaro for saying that Clinton should face “the firing squad. For treason,” a sentiment he’s expressed twice this week.

Baldasaro told MSNBC that the agency’s investigation was “a bunch of BS” from the “liberal media.”
