Trump Adviser Stands by Call for Clinton to Face 'Firing Squad'

A Donald Trump adviser is standing by his comments that Hillary Clinton should be shot by a firing squad for treason.New Hampshire state Sen. Al Baldasaro, a Marine veteran who advises Trump on veterans’ issues and has campaigned with him in New Hampshire, said in an interview with NBC News that Clinton's use of a private server should be considered treason and  “as far as I’m concerned, the laws of the land on treason could be a firing squad if she’s found guilty.”

He first made the comments on the Jeff Kuhner Show, and when confronted with his earlier remarks he said he stood by them.“I stand by it because treason is treason. When you take information on a server, that’s a non classified server, classified info, and you've got names of American CIA, Secret Service, ambassadors or whatever and you’re sharing that out there, you’re giving the enemy information,” Baldasaro said.

Asked to respond to Baldasaro's comments, Trump aide Hope Hicks told NBC News "No, of course Mr. Trump does not feel this way."
