Secret Service Investigates State Senator Who Wrote, ‘I Hope Trump Is Assassinated’

The Secret Service is investigating a Missouri state senator after posting on Facebook that she’s hopes someone assassinates President Trump.

Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal commented on her personal Facebook page, “I hope Trump is assassinate.” 

The Democratic senator deleted the post, which prompted an investigation by the Secret Service.

Chappelle-Nadal told the Kansas City Star that she made the comment because she was frustrated with the “trauma and despair” the president is causing by minimizing the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Va. 

“The way I responded this morning was wrong,” she told The Star. “I’m frustrated. Did I mean the statement? No. Am I frustrated? Absolutely. The president is causing damage. He’s causing hate.”

Chappelle-Nadal eventually deleted the post.

“It was wrong for me to post that,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “But I am not going to shy away from the damage this president is causing.”

Trump has caught criticism from both Democrats and Republicans for blaming “both sides” and “many sides” for the violent rally that ended in the death of an anti-racist protester who was among a group of people struck by a car driven by an alleged Nazi sympathizer from Ohio.

The Secret Service is investigating a state lawmaker in Maine after causing alarm over a Facebook post about President Trump.

Rep. Scott Hamann called Trump a “half-term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet.”

The Democrat later said he regretted the social media post, describing his comments as “aggressively sarcastic and inappropriate.”

A Secret Service spokesman confirmed the investigation to Fox News.

“The Secret Service is aware of the comments in question and are investigating the matter.

“Allegations of any threat, inappropriate interest or unusual behavior directed towards a Secret Service protectee receives the highest priority of all our investigations.”

Madonna caught the attention of the Secret Service after she said during the Women’s March On Washington that she has thought about “blowing up the White House.”

During a speech that was broadcast live, Madonna said she’d thought about “blowing up the White House” but knew it “wouldn’t change anything,” AOL News reports. 

The Secret Service has declined to comment on the investigation.

If charges are filed, the decision will be made by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

“We cannot fall into despair,” Madonna said. “As the poet W. H. Auden once wrote on the eve of World War Two, ‘We must love one another or die.’ I choose love. Are you with me?”
