Missouri Senator Makes Facebook Comment Hoping For President Trump To Be Assassinated

Kristina Schmidt, the Special Agent-In-Charge of the St. Louis branch of the USSS said her office is "looking into this" to "determine intent" and whether any laws were broken by Chappelle-Nadal. In a now-deleted Facebook comment, Chappelle-Nadal said that she hoped President Donald Trump would be assassinated.

A Missouri state senator is under fire after a post on social media where she said she hoped the president would be assassinated.

Chappelle-Nadal responded to Gangne's second comment, saying: "No. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated", Chappelle-Nadal told the newspaper. He called her "an embarrassment to our state", adding: "She should resign immediately". "But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I'm not going to shy away from that".

In response to those and a growing list of other calls for her to step down, Chappelle-Nadal told the Post-Dispatch: "I am not resigning".

"I condemn it", McCaskill told the Post-Dispatch. "And she should resign". "He's on Trumps (sic) Secret Service detail". (Chappelle-Nadal denied it, saying Nasheed was harassing her.) This time, though, it looks like she'll get her wish: The Secret Service is, in fact, investigating her comment.

They have also said that if a harder border is required in the future, that will be a decision for Irish officials and the EU. Further, the British government has proposed new customs arrangements that would allow free flow of goods.

A screenshot of the comment was posted to Twitter by KMOX's Mark Reardon.

"(C) alling for the assassination of the President is a federal crime", he said in a statement. "It was in response to the concerns that I am hearing from residents of St. Louis. If there is, then we refer it to the U.S. Attorney".

She talked about her constituents who are afraid to go out in public and are having nightmares.

Chappelle-Nadal, who is black, was elected to the Missouri Senate in 2010, after serving in the state House for five years. Chappelle-Nadal said she knew of him from his involvement in protests during the unrest in Ferguson. And Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh, D-Bellefontaine Neighbors, said Chappelle-Nadal's "unacceptable behavior" has "no place in our caucus, the Capitol, or the Democratic Party". Claire McCaskill and the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party have called on her to resign.
