An attorney representing GOP candidate Donald Trump accused his presumptive Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, of murder in a Tuesday morning tweet, Politico reports.
Michael Cohen, executive vice president of the Trump Organization and special counsel to the real estate mogul accused Clinton of some serious crimes in his tweet, which is a meme featuring an image of her smiling with her arms outstretched.
“I presided over $6 billion lost at the State Department, sold uranium to the Russians through my faux charity, illegally deleted public records and murdered an ambassador,” the text reads. “Elect me!”
Twitter users blasted him, one sending a meme of their own showing Trump’s head Photoshopped onto a baby’s body, playing with toy soldiers. The text reads, “Donald Trump’s military record.”

Politico points out that while Cohen’s tweet doesn’t specify which ambassador he’s talking about, it came the same day Republicans from the House Select Committee on Benghazi released a report detailing what they consider the failings of the Obama administration and Clinton as Secretary of State in relation to the 2012 attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed in the attack. The attack has fueled politically-driven conspiracy theories that insinuate Clinton allowed the ambassador to be killed. Trump has also promoted the idea that Clinton murdered White House counsel Vince Foster in 1993. The death has been ruled a suicide.
