Trump revives creepy gun rhetoric against Clinton: Disarm her bodyguards — ‘let’s see what happens to her’

Published

A month after suggesting Hillary Clinton could be attacked by “Second Amendment people,” Donald Trump used similar language during a campaign rally on Friday, The Guardian reported.

Speaking in Florida, Trump accused Clinton of wanting to “abolish” the Second Amendment, then criticized her for traveling with armed Secret Service bodyguards.

“I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons – they should disarm,” he said. “I think they should disarm immediately, what do you think, yes? Take their guns away, she doesn’t want guns. Take their guns away, Let’s see what happens to her.”

Last month, Trump suggested that “the Second Amendment people” could prevent Clinton from picking Supreme Court justices should she win the election.

MSNBC posted video of the remarks, which can be seen below.

Following a New Times report that stated "President Trump directly tied the withholding of almost $400 million in American security aid to investigations that he sought from Ukrainian officials, according to an unpublished manuscript of a book that John R. Bolton, Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, wrote about his time in the White House," the three took to the Times editorial page to implore Roberts to step in.

Senate GOP will be accessories to obstruction if they shoot down a move by Justice Roberts to call witnesses: Ex-prosecutor

On Monday, former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) must motion for Chief Justice John Roberts to call witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial — and that if Senate Republicans vote down this decision, they will be "accessories" to obstruction of justice.
