Dem Won't Apologize For Calling For Trump Assassination, Wants Apology Instead

Posted August 19, 2017

The U.S. Secret Service confirmed to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that it is investigating the post as a possible threat. Liberal comedian Cathy Griffin, famous actor Johnny Depp fall in this category and now a Democratic senator from Missouri has joined the list. State Democrats aren't trying to hear her though, and several, including Democratic Senator Claire McKaskill, have called for Nadal's resignation over her comments.

That sentiment was echoed by Stephen Webber, chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party. "And she should resign".

"I posted something on my personal Facebook and I should not have done that, and for that I am sorry for that", Chapelle-Nadal told St. Louis television station KMOV.

On Friday, Chappelle-Nadal told the Post-Dispatch she met with the Secret Service on Thursday and explained to them that she had made a mistake.

The paper published what appeared to be a screenshot of a Facebook discussion between Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D) of Saint Louis County and another user.

Trump was criticized for his initial response, condemning violence on "many sides", then on Monday he specifically condemned the white supremacist groups.

An Indian military officer said the skirmish was brief but violent and for the first time stones were used. However, there were reports of troops from both sides exchanging candies on the occasion on Tuesday.

Chappelle-Nadal, 42, went on her Facebook page yesterday to vent two days after the president blamed "both sides" for the brutality. I have deleted it, and it should have been deleted, but there is something way more important that we should be talking about.

Despite the condemnations, Chappelle-Nadal said she has no plans to step down.

Parson also said that as the lieutenant governor, he has "the ability and the right" to call on the rest of the senate body to remove her from office.

"But, what I posted earlier, I truly believe will happen, sooner ... not later", he wrote. Chappelle-Nadal is an embarrassment to self-governance and self-discipline. She has said she has no intention of resigning over the comment. "No one is going to speak for African-Americans like I do".

"They are creating cover for the president instead of dealing with the real issues at hand", Chappelle-Nadal said. The lawmaker, who joined the state Senate in 2010 has been critical of the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, it said.

She added: "I do not wish any harm to our president".
