Lawmaker Who Wants Trump Assassinated Just Got Slammed With Massive Bad News

No matter how you feel about President Trump, you don’t call for his assassination. Ever. And now that she’s been slammed with a spate of massive bad news, Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal is finding that out the hard way.

Chappelle-Nadal posted “I hope Trump is assassinated!” in a Facebook conversation last week. After initially refusing to apologize, she relented and gave a mea culpa at a Sunday news conference — although she refused to heed calls for her resignation.

“President Trump, I apologize to you and your family,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “I made a mistake, and I’m owning up to it. And I’m not ever going to make a mistake like that again.”

That didn’t help smooth things over for Chappelle-Nadal, however. Now, 44,000 individuals have signed a petition demanding the lawmaker be removed and arrested, she’s been stripped of all of her committee assignments, the state’s most influential newspaper has openly called for her resignation and the Missouri state legislature may meet to expel the controversial Democrat.

The petition, which is addressed to Republican U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner from Missouri’s 2nd District, notes that threatening the president’s life isn’t just a faux pas.

“US Code Title 18, Section 871 clearly states that any threat to the President is considered a political offense,” the petition reads. “This is punishable up to 5 years in prison and $250,000 maximum fine. We cannot allow someone such as a State Senator who knowingly knew her position, took it for granted and used that to say whatever she wanted against our current President of the United States.”

According to Fox News, Chappelle-Nadal’s nine committee assignments have also been taken away from her after the threat against the president.

“I support the decision of Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh to remove Sen. Chappelle-Nadal from all of her Senate committees,” Republican Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard said. “I am also removing her from all appointments under my authority.”

On Monday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch — Missouri’s most influential newspaper, which is hardly known as a bastion of covert #MAGAism — unequivocally called for Chappelle-Nadal’s resignation in a scathing editorial.

“There are times when unequivocal contrition should be enough to clear the air and move on. This, sadly, is not one of those times,” the Post-Dispatch wrote. “Rarely has such a disparate political chorus sung in such complete harmony in Missouri. Yet, Chappelle-Nadal isn’t getting the message. No matter how angry she was at Trump for his lax condemnation of the white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12, no clear-thinking public figure would express hopes for his assassination.”

The Post-Dispatch also noted that if she refused to resign, “(t)he likely alternative is expulsion.” And, indeed, Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Parson has asked the upper chamber of the state legislature to enter special session for just that purpose.

“I do not make this request of you lightly, but you and I know it is the right course of action to take for the people of Missouri,” Parson, a Republican, wrote to the Missouri Senate in a Tuesday letter.

It would require a two-thirds majority in the Senate to expel Chappelle-Nadal, but from the looks of things, that won’t be hard to achieve. And, after all, Chappelle-Nadal has no one to blame but herself. Even her weak-sauce apology (why are public officials forever “owning up to” or “taking full responsibility for” scandals and and mistakes where nobody was assigning ownership or responsibility to anyone else?) shows that she doesn’t understand the full gravity of threatening the nation’s chief executive with assassination.

Chappelle-Nadal has crossed the line — and if the authorities refuse to arrest her for it, the loss of her seat is literally the least that can happen. Whether it comes through resignation or expulsion is ultimately the senator’s choice, but she oughtn’t pretend she has any other options.

AWWWWWW......too bad, so sad.

Anybody interested in starting a pot on how many days it takes before Sen Dumbass pulls the race card and claims this is all about white supremacy?

ID# 15056 - Searching Desk Calendar Days - PowerPoint Animation

I'll take Oct. 13   ;' /

$5 says 6 days, the race card will be baited and hung.


I figured when everybody started demanding she resign she would have pulled it out already....

my date is partially based on how slow I expect the 'official'' political process to apply pressure on her that she actually feels.  ...if by some miracle that actually was to happen.

Well here we go............   It doesn't say SHE made the claim, but someone did:

Special Session Called to Oust Missouri Senator Who Wanted Trump DEAD

The Democrat has faced increasing pressure to resign from her seat, something that to this point she is refusing to do but she may no longer have much say in the matter as the wheels are in motion to forcibly oust her from the state legislature.

Lt. Governor Mike Parson who is a Republican, sent out a letter requesting a special session that would be convened to throw her out of the state government.

Missouri Lt. Gov. calls for special session to expel senator who hoped for Trump's death 

Via St. Louis television station KMOV 4 “Special session possible to oust Chappelle-Nadal”:

The backlash continues for Democratic Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal from a posted comment on Facebook last week that expressed hope that President Donald Trump would be assassinated.

Republican Lt. Gov. Mike Parson sent a letter to senators Tuesday urging Chappelle-Nadal be expelled. “I am calling on the Missouri Senate to go into special session in conjunction with Veto Session, with the purpose of expelling Senator Chappelle-Nadal from the body under the authority vested to the Senate under Article III, Section 18 of the Missouri Constitution.”

Chappelle-Nadal offered a personal apology to the president and his family on Sunday but has resisted calls to resign. Missouri U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, Congressman Lacy Clay and the Missouri Democratic Party have called for her resignation.

Sen. Paul Wieland of Jefferson County and Sen. Dave Schatz of Franklin County, both Republicans, told News 4 if Chappelle-Nadal doesn’t step down, the senate should step in and remove her from office.

Parson’s request for a special session came hours after Republican and Democratic state Senate leaders removed Chappelle-Nadal from all of her legislative committee assignments.

There will certainly be cries of protest from her defenders that she just made a mistake and is being unjustly persecuted for being a successful black woman, some may even suggest that she is being lynched.

Protests will likely take place if and when the special session commences but she has nobody to blame but herself for what was an incredibly stupid act.

Social media is monitored by political opponents and other citizens looking to hold their elected officials accountable and this dummy thought that she would be immune to the consequences for her actions.

Now that it has been made clear by both the Governor and Lieutenant Governor as well as the head of the state Democratic party that she has to go, Chappelle-Nadal must resign or she will be yanked out like a rotten tooth.





Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
