Democrat Delegate Stacy Plaskett called for former President Donald Trump “to be shot.” Her comment came while on MSNBC’s “Weekends with Jonathan Capehart” show, according to The National Pulse. The Virgin Islands delegate quickly corrected herself and said that he needs to be “stopped.”
Plaskett spoke about Trump’s handling of classified documents which he is now being indicted for following an investigation by Special Counsel Jack Smith, an appointment made by Attorney General Merrick Garland. Garland also gave the green light for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
Plaskett made headlines last month as well when she said that “MAGA Republicans are a threat to the rule of law in America.” While in Congress, she claimed that Republicans are hypocritical to call for defunding the police when the FBI wants to investigate “conservative Christian white men.”
Many conservatives have pointed out that the FBI is unevenly wielding power against its Democratic opponents. While President Joe Biden has been found with top secret classified documents, the DOJ is not prosecuting him. According to recent revelations, the FBI allegedly gave sensitive intelligence to Biden’s lawyers following a delayed investigation by the FBI into his misconduct.
Hunter Biden will plead guilty to two tax misdemeanors and see his gun charge dropped, meaning that he will not serve prison time, according to CNN. The news comes after an FBI document that was finally unveiled by Director Chris Wray showed the Biden family caught up in a bribery scheme with Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy company that had Hunter on the board.
The company’s owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, allegedly admitted to an informant that he bribed Biden with two $5 million payments if he could get Ukraine to fire Viktor Shokin, a prosecutor that was investigating the company.
