Vocal Support for Removal of Lawmaker Who Asked for Trump’s Assassination Grows

In a fit of madness, Democratic Sen. Maria Chapelle-Nadal showed just how “politically-correct” liberals could be and called for the President of the United States of America to be assassinated. Now, Missouri Republican Governor Eric Greitens is asking state lawmakers to expel the Democratic lawmaker who refused to apologize for making such an outrageously violent and criminal call.

Greitens in a statement on Friday said: “Senator Chapelle-Nadal said she hopes the president is killed. Republicans and Democrats have called on her to resign. Her response: ‘Hell no’. Last night, in an interview, she refused to apologize– twice. If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her. I believe they should.”

Also earlier on Friday, another Republican, Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, issued a warning that id Chapelle-Nadal does not resign: “I will, in my position as president of the Missouri Senate, immediately seek the expulsion pursuant to Article III Section 18 of the Missouri Constitution.”

Chappelle-Nadal posted a comment on her private Facebook page saying she hopes that President Trump “is assassinated” for his remarks about the violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Va. Last weekend. She has since deleted the said post. The Secret Service, which is mandated to investigate all threats against a U.S. president, is investigating the matter.

When asked for a reaction after her post received severe backlash, Chappelle-Nadal had a turn-around and fantastically claimed that she does “not wish harm to anyone.” She added in a local media interview: “I do not think it’s worthy of expelling me from the Senate. I am owning up to it. He makes me mad from time to time. He says outrageous things. My emotions got the best of me.”

Chapelle-Nadal did not issue a direct apology for her reckless and criminal call to have Trump assassinated, simply because she did not agree and can not tolerate how he expressed his condemnation for the violence that took place in Charlottesville, Va.

Chapelle-Nadal has also rejected calls from Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill and other top state Democrats to resign from her post.

The Secret Service has yet to share or announce its probe’s findings into the assassination statement of Chapelle-Nadal against Trump.
