Friday evening a Republican lawmaker from West Virginia called for former Secretary of State and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to be publicly hung in Washington DC.

According to WOAY, Michael Folk, who serves in the West Virginia House of Delegates when he is not flying airplanes for United Airlines, posted a tweet stating: “@HillaryClinton You should be tried for treason, murder, and crimes against the US Constitution… then hung on the Mall in Washington, DC”

After receiving criticism, Folk posting a second tweet reading, “Sorry, I don’t mince words… read this story & watch this video & maybe you’ll understand” with a link to an article about the failed investigation into Clinton’s email server.

Folk’s tweet was screen-captured by the West Virginia Democratic Party which called Folk “unfit to serve.”

Saturday morning, Folk tweeted again saying, “Hillary supporters coming out of the woodwork this morning…” with commenters criticizing him for advocating the hanging of Clinton.

According to the first commenter, “lol I’m no where near a Hillary supporter. I’m just not a fan of having a maniac hold office in my great state.”

Twitter commenters have also sent screen captures to United Airlines which responded : “We are definitely aware, and are investigating this. Thanks for letting us know.”

The Democratic Coalition Against Trump is also calling for Folk to resign, with Sen. Jeff Kessler, the West Virginia State Senate Minority Leader, “calling on the West Virginia Republican Party and the Republican National Committee to condemn these words immediately.”

Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner responded to President Donald Trump's pardon of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by saying that it's entirely possible that the judge in Flynn's case could nullify the pardon.

"Just as Judge Emmet Sullivan refused to grant Barr’s corrupt motion to dismiss, I hope Judge [Emmet] Sullivan sets a hearing on whether this pardon is corrupt & hence illegal/void," said Kirschner.

Civil Rights attorney Andrew Laufer agreed, saying that he too wants to see how Judge Sullivan deals with the development.

Reporter busts Trump with damning list of times he previously claimed Flynn was guilty

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump decided to issue a full pardon of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI in the course of the Russia investigation — despite Flynn's attempt to take back his plea and Attorney General William Barr's efforts to shut down the prosecution.

Although Trump and his supporters for years have painted Flynn as a hero, that was not always the sentiment, however. As BuzzFeed News' Jason Leopold noted in a lengthy Twitter thread, Trump previously was enraged with Flynn's criminal conduct, and publicly declared him a liar.

Retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn admitted his guilt to Judge Emmett Sullivan, but President Donald Trump announced that the former director of national intelligence would never see jail time.

"Of all the sordid tales of Trump's presidency, this one might take the cake," said Wallace. "We knew this might be coming. We know Donald Trump likes the power to pardon. There's some reporting he's looking at a pardon for lots of other people. I wonder what your sense is about what else Donald Trump has up his sleeve?"
